As we move into a new year, it’s easy to set a resolution but quickly resort back to old ways. Here’s what your zodiac sign can tell you about what you have to remember going into 2018 so that your old habits don’t follow you.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th):
You often hide behind your thoughts as a way to distract from your feels. Moving forward, you should remember that your emotions are the most original thoughts and the people who love you want to hear them in order to feel closer to you.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th):
Feeling comfortable when you’re alone is always a good thing, but you have to realize that being alone shouldn’t be a way to distract yourself from your fears. Use your quiet time to come to terms with your past and let it go.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th):
Even during your busiest weeks you must take time to reflect. It’s not bad to want to fill your time, but if your schedule becomes a Band-Aid solution to everything you don’t want to confront, 2018 will be filled with resentment. Cherish your slower days and recharge for future adventures.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th):
As 2018 approaches, remember all of the small things that made you happy. Routines are meant to be broken when new opportunities arise, but whenever change begins to give you anxiety you can practice the hobbies that once brought you joy.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th):
Decisions are what move us forward, and if you’re incapable of choosing the opportunities that benefit your life you will spend another year regretting the things you let go to waste. It might sound cliché, but always remember that you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd):
Let 2018 be the year that you step out of your comfort zone and start allowing strangers to become your friends. Home is where the heart is, but not necessarily where your social life is, and therefore you should remember to welcome people into your life unless they give you real reason not to.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd):
If you’ve spent 2017 allowing your arrogance to get the best of you, next year should bring an epiphany about how other people are worth admiring. You can’t be the best all the time, because where’s the challenge in that? Sometimes you have to step back and let someone else be queen for a while.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd):
Remind yourself next year that work isn’t everything. You should always be proud of your professional success, but that doesn’t mean you should forget about the other things in life that you enjoy. Try out a new routine that involves you doing something non-work related every night to really get your passions flowing.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd):
Don’t waste another second of 2017 believing that you don’t have the right to say no. If your opinion conflicts with those of your friends or family, let them hear it. You can exercise respect while letting people know how you really feel in any given situation. Remember that avoiding conflict hurts everyone.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st):
Sometimes you enjoy proving that people have wronged you just so you can feel right about your instincts, but this won’t fly next year. You have to be aware of how your inability to open up affects others – if people see that you’re closed off, they’ll follow suit. You’ll attract the wrong people if you keep up this attitude.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st):
Before 2018 starts, teach yourself that freedom and being alone are not synonymous. Don’t be so afraid to let others into your life under the belief that they’ll automatically cling to you. Prioritize other types of freedom next year such as freedom of opinion, mind and happiness.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th):
Expecting the worst out of everyone doesn’t ensure that you’ll be right 100% of the time. When you assume that people will disappoint you and they end up surprising you, you actually end up being the fool. Next year remember to give other people some responsibility in order to both free up your schedule and improve your ability to trust.
