These self-assured beings constantly establish lofty goals for themselves. According to Wild Witch of the West astrologer Rebecca Farrar, "the self-critical and self-conscious attitude of Leos means they're trying to establish a sense of self through external fulfilment."
And in order to achieve this fulfilment, finishing second is not an option. For prideful Leos, "perfectionism is not a choice but a lifestyle," says astrologer and spiritual counsellor Tara Bennet.
Pisces have a tendency to become lost in their thoughts, and as a result of all their imagining and daydreaming, they may have some rather irrational expectations.
These water signs have a tendency to become really unhappy when their scenarios don't turn out as expected. According to Farrar, the attributes of Pisces can include anxiety and having high expectations, which can make it harder to finish tasks or live a little outside the realm of what is realistically achievable.
Scorpio approaches their perfectionism with restraint. They are "clever enough not to tackle a seemingly hard task right off the outset," according to Bennet.
They frequently observe how others do a task and then mimic the successful individuals' actions. However, because this sign like having control, they are likely to become irate when life falls short of their ideal.
According to Kirilchik, they are also "extremely demanding of others." She continues, saying that they "constantly remind everyone around them of their shortcomings." So don't be shocked if a Scorpio offers you unsolicited advise.
Nothing can stop these driven leaders from achieving their goals. They are overachievers who become frustrated easily if they don't complete everything on their extensive to-do lists.
However, Bennet notes that Aries are also quite opinionated, which can lead to them being "judgemental, scrutinising both themselves and others in a hope to find a road to perfection." They'll also find it challenging to imagine themselves in others' shoes due to their egocentric character.
Capricorns are renowned for striving to excel in all areas, particularly the job. Because "the ram is connected with determination, leadership, and strength," according to Bennet, "these overt perfectionists act in this manner."
According to Farrar, this sign also harbours a deep-seated dread of "not having enough or not getting anywhere." For a Capricorn, failing because they didn't work hard enough is not an option.
No one strives for perfection more than Capricorn, Bennet continues. As a result, it is common for these people to stay at work much after it is time to go.
A Virgo wants things done their way, and if you've spent any time with one, you know this. Because of their "love of order, tidiness, and attention to detail," Kirilchik claims that this sign is linked with perfectionism.
They could come out as conceited since they will point out your perceived flaws, just like Scorpios do." A keen eye for errors and inefficiency,
This indicator has high standards for both themselves and other people "Farrar issues a warning. However, if Virgos can focus this energy in an analytical manner as opposed to a critical manner, it can produce wonderful outcomes.
