Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

Its hard to find someone to keep up with you as it is, so now is the perfect time to execute all the adventures your former significant other wouldn’t entertain. Make plans every weekend with friends or by yourself, plan the international trip you wanted to take, hit the town for restaurant week all 7 days if you want to. The possibilities are endless now that there’s no one to slow your pace. You were made for a thrilling and unpredictable life, so call the shots and see what happens. Plus, what better way to meet someone who’s willing to go on your wild adventures than meeting them while you’re on a wild adventure?

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

You’ve been searching for Mr. Right for far too long. You long to settle down and show someone just how much love you have to give. But you’ve forgotten to show yourself the same kind of love and reliability that you’ve always given everyone else in your life. Think about it, you love getting your way and now is your chance! Use that strong will and independence to travel, dance and socialize like never before. The love of your life will walk through your doors eventually, so quit focusing so much on the next five years and take a minute to appreciate the beauty of today. You’ll thank yourself later.

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

You’ve got no problem being free from the reigns of a relationship that ties you down. Now is the time to be spontaneous with the activities your significant other never wanted to do. Sign up for the bungee jumping experience you wanted to try. Book the trip to Tulum. Focus your energy on being the best in your role at work. And who knows, maybe during one of your impulsive trips you’ll meet someone who will match your energy and zinger, and who will finally be able to keep you on your toes.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You’re fully in touch with your emotions, but you completely commit whenever even the prospect of love comes your way. It’s time to commit all of that care back to you. Serenade yourself. You deserve a nice massage every once in a while, a note to yourself, reminding you of all the reasons why you appreciate the person you are and why others should appreciate you as well. Emotional distance will do you well in this time, and rebalance the scale that was tipped completely on one side. If you dedicate enough TLC inward, you’ll project it into the universe, and the only person that will fit into your puzzle will be the one who understands your beautiful vulnerability.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

This is your time to recharge, learn to take a compliment from a stranger, rather than over analyze it. This is the time to set goals and write down your career aspirations and meet them. This time when you’re single will teach you to push yourself, compliment yourself, and find a balance between your personal interests and work. One day someone will see your drive and push you harder, they’ll support your determination and respect your want to take charge. For now, you are your own superhero.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Yes, this is the right thing. You are meant to be in this place. Your analytical side wants to weigh the pros and the cons of being single vs trying to meet your soulmate… but this is the time to embrace the fact that now the only things you need to worry about nit picking are your outfits, travel destinations and hobbies. This is the time when you learn to reassure yourself, rather than waiting for someone to do it for you. You will end up with someone who will break down your walls when you’re ready. So use this time to practice being vulnerable with yourself.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

This is where you thrive. Your adventurous and energetic spirit is calling out to the universe. Take this time to connect with everyone around you, have deep conversations with friends and strangers, you’ll end up learning a thing or two about yourself along the way. I know it’s hard to make up your mind about what to do next, so make a list of all the things you’ve been going back and forth between and cross them off one at a time! You need a partner a little more grounded, who still respects your outgoing nature and ability to have your own life. So this is the time when no one can hold you back, enjoy your freedom to do what you want when you want to – and you’ll find someone who will fall in love with your free spirit without tying you down.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

You have no qualms about the single life, so take the time to let your passions drive you. Make changes that will open you up to new possibilities. You’re the kind of person who makes things happen, and now is the time to find your calling and make the moves you’ve wanted to make. Your strong sense of self is going to help you prosper during this time. You’re probably skeptical even reading this, but maybe now is the time to put it all out there. Maybe one day while you’re distracted with your passions, you’ll attract the one who will finally put it all out on the table for you.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

You’ve never been one to wait around so don’t start now. This is the time to complete all the tasks you’ve been putting off without the distraction of a relationship to stand in your way. Allow your fearless and active nature to drive your explorations. Your optimism during this valuable time of being single will open up doors and opportunities of learning new things. The more you remain your authentic self during this time, the more chance you have of meeting someone who values the real you.

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

Dependency isn’t really your thing anyways. Take this time to look at the bright side of things rather than delving into all of the possibilities of why it may or may not work with someone else. You have a way of making everyone feel like their best self around you, so why not focus that feeling inward. Spend this time challenging yourself in the office and keeping it light on the weekends. Your confidence will surly attract someone who is just as independent and self-assured as you, so for now set the tone for the future you want to attract.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

You’re craving connection and the hopeless romantic in you thinks you need it from your former significant other. But this is the time to make deep, meaningful connections with friends and co-workers. Practice the healthy communication you seek with those already around you. And remember, this is your chance to be honest with yourself, about what you want and what you don’t. No need to be the “chill” girlfriend anymore when you really didn’t want to be, your friends want you to say what you mean – this is practice; the people who truly love you will stick around.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

You might feel like this is the time to wallow, but rather, now is the time to let your imagination run free. Your selflessness leaves you sometimes forgetting to tend to your own needs. Now is a safe time to stop asking for approval and putting everyone’s needs in front of your own. This is the time to give yourself the TLC you deserve. Your empathetic nature and loving personality are better served in acts of charity and creative endeavors. Your partner in crime will find their way to you eventually, and your strong grasp of identity will make them appreciate your sensitivity rather than taking advantage of it. TC mark
