God & Man

Aries: March 21st – April 19th

You’re wasting your life by chasing after all of these great adventures instead of looking around right now and appreciating everything that you have. The exciting moments aren’t all that matter. Start enjoying the boring moments. The times when you get to sit on the couch with a beer and bullshit with the people you love.

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

You’re wasting your life by living in your memories. I know you’ve had a wonderful past, but it’s time to bring yourself back to the present. Maybe even start thinking about the future. The people that have left you are gone for good. It’s time to deal with that and move on with your life.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

You’re wasting your life by procrastinating. You find it hard to come to decisions, so you just keep putting them off. Telling yourself that you’ll deal with them the next day. But you can’t keep waiting for tomorrow’s tomorrow’s tomorrow. Make a decision now. Do something now. Stop waiting for the perfect moment. It doesn’t exist.

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

You’re wasting your life by putting too much focus on love. You’re obsessed with finding your forever person. With having a happily ever after. But guess what? Happiness doesn’t have to involve a relationship. You can be happy being single. Learn to love your life, to love yourself, even when you don’t have anyone else to lean on.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

You’re wasting your life by chasing after the dreams you had when you were a little kid. Ideas change. People change. Dreams change. It’s okay to realize that the thing you always imagined you’d spend your future doing, the thing you might have even went to college for, is no longer what you want to do. Remember, you can start fresh, even if it’s late in life.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

You’re wasting your life by remaining loyal to people that don’t deserve your time and effort. Not everyone deserves a second chance — and definitely not a third or fourth chance. Stop keeping certain people around, just because you have history with them. Some family members and friends belong in your past so you can make a better future for yourself.

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

You’re wasting your life by changing your mind every two seconds. You can’t keep jumping from job to job and relationship to relationship. You need to find a career you enjoy (or a person you enjoy) and stick to it. Stop messing around and commit.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

You’re wasting your life by living too much in the present. It’s great to enjoy the moment, but you can’t completely forget about your future. You can’t spend all your money on clothes and booze. You have to save up for a house, for retirement. You have to think ahead — at least a little.

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st

You’re wasting your life by acting impatient. When something doesn’t happen overnight, you get frustrated and give up completely. But great things take time. You have to be patient. You have to be willing to work years for the things you want.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th

You’re wasting your life by expecting the worst. Whenever you meet someone, you assume they’re going to break your heart. Whenever you put yourself out there, you assume you’re going to be rejected. But that pessimism is only hurting you. You have to think positive. Give yourself some credit. The world isn’t actually against you.

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

You’re wasting your life by filling it to the brim with work. You get bored easily, which is why you’re always doing something. You can never sit still. But you’re stressing yourself out. You deserve a rest. You deserve some peace. Remember that it’s okay to give yourself a break every once in a while. It’s healthy.

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

You’re wasting your life by trying too hard to escape from reality. It’s fine to play video games and binge watch shows — but that shouldn’t be your entire life. Go out and live. See the world. Experience the universe firsthand. TC mark
