The Zodiac Signs That Will Call Out All Of Your Red Flags

If you're familiar with the basics of astrology, you know that there are certain zodiac signs that are likely to be more compatible with your own than others. There are also those that tend to be particularly incompatible. However, a person's zodiac sign can actually reveal much more than potential compatibility when it comes to relationship dynamics. If you're in the market for a new friend or romantic partner, you should absolutely consider comparing the traits you seek with the zodiac signs of your potential matches.


If you seek a companion who is always agreeable, for instance, pay special attention to ultra-empathetic water signs like Cancer and Pisces, who tend to withhold judgment for fear of hurting others. However, if you're looking for someone who will always be the realest of the real when it comes to calling out your missteps and questionable motives, the following signs are where you should start your search. 


It shouldn't come as a surprise that Leo — the lion — isn't afraid to speak up when you start engaging in red flag behavior. That is, when they take a brief break from talking about themselves. Don't expect a Leo to quietly pull you aside to tactfully discuss the issue, either. This sign is bold and tends to come in like a wrecking ball. You'll never have to worry about their concerns being expressed in an ambiguous way.


If there is any possibility that your red flag behaviors have in some way reflected poorly on the Leo in your life, expect double trouble. These kings and queens of the jungle survive on the praise and admiration of others and have no time for someone who might make them look bad. While their motives may be self-centered, a Leo will always shine a bright spotlight on your shortcomings. After that, it's up to you to address and correct them. 


Sagittarians have one quest during this lifetime: to learn and analyze everything and everyone. Unlike more traditionally studious lifetime learners, like Capricorns, Sagittarians feel a fiery, burning passion for learning how to improve themselves and those around them. If a Sagittarius notices your red flags (and they will), they are likely to bluntly blurt them out and then ask what you plan to do about them. Unlike a Leo, however, a Sag is not concerned about what their association with you might do to their reputation.


A Sagittarius seeks the knowledge and mental stimulation that studying your behavior provides. If you trust the Sagittarius in your life, it may be wise to turn to them for help with transforming your red flags into green ones. While their involvement might be self-motivated, the results will be mutually beneficial. You get to improve yourself and the Sag gets the satisfaction of conducting their own human behavioral experiment. 


Gemini — like all air signs — is intellectually motivated. They are constantly searching for new information to process and new belief systems to analyze. What sets a Gemini apart, however, is their uncanny ability to assess a person's character with ease. If you're exhibiting red flags anywhere near a Gemini, they will notice. And, thanks to Mercury — Gemini's ruler and the planet of communication — they will immediately let you know what they have observed.


Gemini natives tend to struggle with being alone and prefer to surround themselves with other people at all times. Since they also tend to exude charisma and wit, it's not difficult for them to do so. This means a Gemini friend or partner is likely to make themselves available to help you work through your issues if you need another person to bounce ideas off of while brainstorming. It may not be as effective as therapy, but it's a good place to start. 


Slow and steady, Taurus — the bull — is a rock-solid earth sign that dislikes when peace is disrupted for them or their loved ones. If your red flag behavior is ruffling feathers anywhere near a Taurian, you can bet that you're going to hear about it. Their delivery might not be as forceful as a Leo's, as blunt as a Sagittarian's, or as articulate as a Gemini's, but they will make sure that you get the message.


Taurians are the most stubborn folks in the entire zodiac, so don't kid yourself by thinking that the Taurus who called you out will forget or move on from your red flags. They might not go out of their way to start a fight or to fix the problem for you, but they will relentlessly point out the problem over and over again until you address it. If a calm, consistent force for good is what you need in your life, get yourself a Taurus.
