(March 21st to April 19th)
You cannot be pushed down for long, and sooner rather than later, that spark is going to jump right out of you again with a brightness that’s stronger than ever, because of the pain you’ve gotten through.
(April 20th to May 21st)
The people who lose the most in life are the ones who are too afraid to love; so although you might be hurting now, your heart is strong enough and warm enough to carry you through until you inevitably come out on the other side with more compassion and contagious joy than ever before.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
One day you will find someone who loves you for both sides of you – the bright, lighthearted, infectious one, and the vulnerable and fragile one even more so.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
You’re smart enough to know that you can bring out your tough side when you need to, if you’re willing to let go; so take a deep breath, baby yourself for a couple days, and then love yourself enough to move on to something better.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
With a curiosity and passion like yours, never doubt you’ll always be strong enough to get out of bed and keep living; and on the days when it’s really tough, pour your energy and love into the friends and family around you that you know will pour it right back.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
Tell the pessimistic and overcritical side of your brain to shut up for a hot second, and then remember that if anyone can get through heartbreak like this by taking it day by day and one step at a time, it is absolutely you.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
Remember that being rejected by someone doesn’t make you any less lovable, and that the endless number of friends who surround you don’t do it because of what you can do for them – they do it because you’re a source of joy, friendliness, and comfort to so many; be proud of who you are and don’t try to change it for one person.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
You’ll be tempted to obsess over what went wrong or how you could have behaved differently, but instead, channel that focus into the magnetic and powerful energy that radiates from your soul and allow it to carry you through these next few weeks by doing things and spending time with people you care about.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
It’s okay to not be the optimistic and humorous one for once; if it helps you to make jokes, great, but remember that you don’t need to be the brave one right now, and that sometimes it’s okay to hurt for a little while.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
Although your practical thinking and logic may sometimes feel like it gets in the way of your love life, let it carry you for a few moments now; remind yourself that you’re strong, that you will be okay eventually (even if you’re heartbroken now), and that if anyone’s capable of putting in the effort to put their broken heart back together, it’s you.
(January 21st to February 18th)
Trying to detach yourself from the situation and avoid your feelings is only going to prolong the pain and make everything worse; breathe it in, feel it, acknowledge it, talk about it with those you trust, and then give yourself as much time as you need in order to heal.
(February 19th to March 20th)
Your escapist kind of nature may tempt you right now, but the greatest gift you could give to your broken heart is to finally let yourself lean on the people who are so used to leaning on you; trust me, they’ll do anything in their power to comfort the person who’s done so much for them already.
