Exactly What You Deserve To Leave Behind In 2017, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
God & Man



As an Aquarius, you thrive on your ability to sustain the truth. You are honest and true, and you always search for the good in people, often times when there isn’t any good to be found. You tend to give your all to people who would betray you at the drop of a hat. It’s a vigorous cycle you can’t seem to get away from long enough to see the bigger picture for what it is. It’s time for you to leave that toxic habit in 2017. Continue to remain true to yourself and the authentic people in your life, but start allowing your valuable sense of judgement shine in the next year. 2017 has been all about finding out who is real and fake, and now it’s time to weed out the poison.



As a Pisces, you have a difficult time taking criticism, even when it’s coming from a good place. You often take things to heart, and assume someone is attacking you if they offer you any sort of advice or guidance. It’s time to grow a thicker skin next year, and leave that lack of self confidence in 2017. You deserve to be confident in everything you do in life. You should never let people get you down or feel less worthy of those accomplishments. It’s time for you to learn the difference between criticism and constructive criticism. Take other people’s advice with a grain of salt and use what you can to become even more wonderful than you already are.


(MARCH 21 – APRIL 19)

As an Aries, you’re a goal digger. You’re all about setting big goals, and crushing them. Which is great, but it’s important that you be more realistic with those goals. No one is telling you to set the bar low, but stop beating yourself up when things don’t always go your way. It’s time to leave disappointment in 2017. If you’re constantly disappointed with your achievements because you think you could’ve done more, you’ll never be able to appreciate the things you have accomplished. In the new year it’s about time you find a subtle balance between ambition and laziness.


(APRIL 20 – MAY 20)

As a Taurus, you are always everyone’s go-to person. You’re super reliable, and everybody knows that. You love helping people with their issues, and sometimes you will even neglect your own ones by doing so. Continue being the giving, caring person that you are, but this year, make sure to also make time for yourself. You don’t always have the solution for everyone else’s problems. And that’s okay. You deserve to work on yourself and take care of your own mental health. Then you’ll be able to help others even better.


(MAY 21 – JUNE 20)

As a Gemini’s, you are a social butterfly. You get caught up in the idea that you need to be “IT” everywhere you go. You are the life of the party, but you can’t always be the life of every party. 2017 was about letting loose, taking risks, having fun, and socializing like hell. But next year, it’s time for you to take a hiatus from socializing now and then to recharge. Don’t stress about always needing to be in the limelight. People will always be drawn to your magnetic energy, you’ll always be in high demand, but you shouldn’t stretch yourself thin. Next year, it’s time learn how to say no, and not feel guilty about doing so.


(JUNE 21 – JULY 22)

As a Cancer, you are sentimental and it can get the better of your emotions at times. You cling onto broken relationships, broken people, broken places, because you can’t just let something go easily. Your sensitive nature simply won’t allow you to. But, it’s time you leave all the toxic back in 2017. You don’t deserve to cling onto toxic people who are unworthy of your love. You deserve to let it all go and move forward because something ten times better is waiting for you in the next life… or the next year. It’s time to start fresh.


(JULY 23 – AUGUST 22)

As a Leo, you have quite the ego on you. You love to soak up all the attention that comes along with always being in the spotlight. Naturally, the center of attention is where you prefer to be. Your ego feeds off of it. But, it’s time for you to let go a bit, and leave your ego back in 2017. You’ve seen first hand how your ego can lead to problems from time to time, and you know that you’re better off without it. You can still maintain your powerful persona , and be modest and humble at the same time.



As a Virgo, you are quite the perfectionist. You crave the feeling of doing something flawlessly, or it simply isn’t good enough for you. You deserve to leave that mentality in 2017. Nothing is perfect, including you. And as long as you always try your very best, you can achieve your own kind of perfection. Stop stressing over being perfect. Leave that stress in 2017. Next year, recognize that your potential is being put to good use. Ditch the idea that perfection is something you need to strive for, and instead strive for excellence. Because the two of them go hand and hand.



As a Libra, you want to please everyone else. You’re a happy go lucky person for the most part, but you too have your moments. You want to make sure everybody else around you is situated and satisfied, that sometimes you forget to make sure that you are yourself. It’s time to leave that habit back in 2017. It’s time for you to work on you. Take time for yourself and stop trying to please everyone for once. You will see how much better you’ll feel for it.



As a Scorpio, you love being labeled a wild card. You’re a mystery to most. And it’s played in your favor for most of the time up until now. You’re set on the idea that everybody is out to get you. You question the motives of every single person that comes into your life, without even giving them a fair shot to prove themselves. Leave the idea that everyone is going to hurt you in 2017. You deserve to stumble upon something amazing – someone amazing. And you aren’t going to find that that until you believe you are deserving of it. Learn to trust others, and don’t be afraid of how they could hurt you – instead, use it as a lessons.



As a Sagittarius, you tend to let your wanderlust can get the better of you sometimes. You hate feeling stuck and it’s hard for you to stay focused on one thing at a time. You crave more, which is probably why you flourish in all your endeavors. But sometimes you forget to appreciate where you are right now. You focus too much on the future, that you neglect to see how far you’ve already come. It’s time you leave that habit back in 2017. You will do incredible things in your life, but that doesn’t mean you haven’t done incredible things already. At times it’s good to focus on the here and now, it keeps you grounded.



As a Capricorn, you have a tendency of convincing the world – and yourself – that everything is fine. Even on the days when everything is far from being fine, you have perfected the skill of pretending like everything’s just peachy. Especially when you’re falling apart inside. It’s time you abandon that habit in 2017. Next year, stop being so prideful and take advice from the people you trust. Take the helping hand that’s given to you. Search for guidance when you feel like you need it. Realize that sometimes, it’s okay to not be okay. You’ve trained yourself to be so strong and self-reliant all the time which is an incredible thing, but cut yourself from slack sometimes. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
