Astrology and zodiac signs can be found everywhere nowadays, whether it be daily horoscopes on Cosmo‘s Snapchat or dainty Pintrest tattoos on college girls’ side boobs. Regardless if you truly believe in this star science or not, you have to admit it’s fun and harmless. And no matter if you’re a believer or believe it to be stupid hocus pocus mumbo jumbo, you can hopefully learn a bit of life advice from what I believe to be what your sign needs to hear.
Aries, you are used to being the fearless and bold leader of the zodiac signs. People listen and follow you, because of your magnetic energy and fiery passion, but you have got to take a break before you burn out or simply burn bridges. Learn to slow down and stop being so quick to jump, because although you have the best intentions (most of the time) you can do more damage than good when you act before thinking. I know it is your natural instinct to protect the ones you love, and you love so fiercely and passionately, but you don’t have to save everyone else by throwing yourself in the fire first. Before you act, ask yourself, would these same people bear arms for you, or would they drop their weapons and run when you need saving?
Taurus, you are the ultimate creature of habit. It is understandable to be comfortable in your routine since you’ve got it down to a T, but you have to learn to listen to others. While you do have a logical, sensible mind, sometimes it’s healthy to do things that don’t make sense and that you have not thought about for hours or even days ahead of time. Take a lesson from Aries, and act impulsively every once in a while, which starts from listening to others. It does not have to always be your way or the highway. Treat life like an interstate. (And yes, that is a Rascal Flatts reference.)
Gemini, people love to stereotype you as a two-faced, compulsive liar, but I know your seemingly fake personality truly stems from you not knowing yourself, which is okay because who does? In order for your personality to feel like a whole puzzle instead of different pieces being shoved together, you have to start making decisions and forming opinions for yourself. You’re remarkable at seeing all sides, which makes you a great mediator and communicator, but you can’t always stand in the middle. Retreat into yourself and create one single voice rather than listening to a thousand others. It’s time for you to finally be understood and appreciated for being genuinely you.
Cancer, you feel everything so wholeheartedly, but you won’t have a heart left if you allow all these emotional attacks to continue. Your emotional depth makes you an amazing empath, but it also makes you feel like you’re drowning in an ocean when really it’s just a cup of water. It’s like you’re always waiting for disaster when often times it’s you lighting the match. While you are there for others to listen and comfort, you have to understand that not everyone is as comfortable with emotions as you; therefore, you most likely won’t get the same emotional labor reciprocated. Learn to adapt your energies into healthy coping mechanisms so you aren’t crying in the club every weekend.
Leo, it’s no secret that you shine bright and all eyes are on you, but you have to learn how to share the spotlight. It’s understandable that you naturally draw attention, and consequently you’ve grown to expect it, but not all eyes need to be on you for you to feel seen. In fact you might be making your loved ones feel invisible in your wake, so in order to have mature and equal relationships, you have to learn to share and compromise. Learn to be subtly bold, and you’ll finally get the right attention.
Virgo, you can be the ultimate perfectionist, which leads to an amazing final product, but on the flip side, you can be the biggest critic not only of yourself but of others, which is often very unappreciated and unwelcome. It seems as though you allow your personal insecurities and anxieties project onto others, which isn’t fair and often leaves your peers feeling insecure and vulnerable. Relax and learn to go with the flow; it will make your and everyone else’s lives easier.
Libra, don’t get lost in grand, expensive gestures from others. Ruled by Venus, you are naturally a romantic, but ask yourself if you really have heart eyes for their heart or their money. If all you see is green, it might be time to hit the brakes. And I know, it’s hard for you to make a decision, because you can see both sides, but, as the sign of the scales, weigh the pros and cons and make a fair decision not just for you, but for the other person.
Scorpio, your passion is admirable and when you love, you truly love, but that same intense love can quickly become an obsession and possession over the other person. Nevertheless, you have this dark and mysterious energy, which is why so many people are intrigued by you, but underneath that confident mask is often times a vulnerable, insecure person, who craves someone to help carry your emotional weight. However, in order to have a long-lasting, healthy relationship, you have to learn to loosen the reigns a bit or you will only be chasing after your runaway love.
Sagittarius, it seems all you do is run away when the going gets tough or even slightly serious. You have to understand that life is not all fun and games, and we know you love to play, but when you are constantly quitting the team, you’re only losing. I don’t know whatever it is you’re scared of, but fleeing the crime scene doesn’t mean the crime never happened. Out of sight, out of mind is more of a temporary fix rather than a permanent solution. Realize that the things worth having in life don’t come easy so be prepared to fight rather than going MIA.
Capricorn, you have to let yourself have fun. You are so work-oriented and practical, but almost to a fault. Obviously, it’s great to be driven and ambitious, but the world still spins after 5 p.m. and it doesn’t always have to weigh on your shoulders. When your mind is constantly working in overdrive, your battery is losing charge and fast. Try to find a balance between work and fun; both are equally important.
Aquarius, you aren’t an emotionally devoid robot, so stop acting like one. Being so detached from your feelings are hurting both you and the people that care about you. Acting so noncommittal and aloof is driving a wedge between you and the people you allow yourself to care about. Your lack of emotional expression makes others feel as though they don’t matter to you and creates an insecurity in your relationships. With you being such a social butterfly, I know friendships are important to you, platonically and romantically, so it’s beneficial to start showing how much you do cherish the few, deep substantial relationships you do have in your life. Your family and friends are blessings in your life, as you are to them, so appreciate those people in a way they can actually feel appreciated.
Pisces, you want to believe in the best of people, but that often leads to disappointment for you. Being so emotionally sensitive and vulnerable doesn’t have to be a bad thing, but choose wisely who you give that power to. If or when those people don’t meet your expectations, you cannot blame yourself for their actions. It’s easy for you to take on other peoples’ guilt and blame, but that leads to self-destruction more often than not. You deserve better.
