March 21st – April 19th

As an Aries, you are always dying for the next big adventure. You crave that kind of freedom in your everyday life. In 2017, you might have missed out on the opportunity to spread your wings and fly. You could have been presented with an opportunity to do something incredible, somewhere incredible, but your fear got in the way. In 2018, let your adventurous soul shine. Embrace the wandering mind you were given and take chances even if it terrifies you. The outcome could be everything you’ve been looking for and more.


April 20th – May 20th

As a Taurus, you love learning new things. Whether it be about the universe, other people, or yourself, you love learning all the time. In 2017, you were intended to learn a great deal about yourself, but that plan fell short. You may have experienced several mishaps that lead you to where you are right now, but you might have missed the moral of the story. In 2018, let your experiences shape you into who you are meant to be, but also learn from those lessons. They are there to teach you things, and being the great learner you are, this is right up your alley.


May 21st – June 20th

As a Gemini, you are all about instant gratification. If you don’t see results right away, you easily become discouraged and kind of quit before you even start. In 2017, you might have had an opportunity for a long-term success, but you gave up too soon to ever see the outcome of it. In 2018, it’s time to be patient. It’s time to invest your energy into something that will be rewarding in the long run. You will be given another significant and exciting opportunity for a great success in your life. And this time you’ll be persistent enough to see the outcome. And it will be well worth it.


June 21st – July 22nd

As a Cancer, you enjoy expressing your feeling for someone through subliminal, secretive messages and hints. You like to show affection silently, which often results in misunderstood feelings and second guesses. In 2017, you had the opportunity to tell someone how you truly feel about them. You may have felt very strongly about that person, but were too afraid to tell them that. In 2018, wear your heart on your sleeve, and say how you feel. You might be surprised at the reactions you get.


July 23rd – August 22nd

As a Leo, you have major FOMO. You hate missing out on fun adventures and making memories with your loved ones. In 2017, you might have let your FOMO get the best of you. You might have spent so much time trying to make plans and adjust your schedule to fit the life you envision, that you missed out on an opportunity to go out and make those memories. In 2018, it’s time to stop living in fantasy land and start making a reality out of those fantasies.


August 23rd – September 22nd

As a Virgo, you struggle with yourself more than you’d like to admit. You don’t know how to properly treat yourself and sometimes it really worries you. In 2017, you might have been given an opportunity to learn an important lesson about yourself, but you ignored this lesson out of fear. You blocked out any self-loving mantra and you hid away in your shell, your place of comfort. In 2018, it’s time for you to break out of that shell, as scary as it may be. It’s time to learn how to treat yourself with love and care. You will finally start to feel better about the person you are. And it’s been a long time coming.


September 23rd – October 22nd

As a Libra, you are very caring and compassionate by nature. In 2017, you might have been a little too caring for a particular person that didn’t really deserve it after all. You might have missed out on the opportunity to rid that person from your life entirely, for one and for all. But unfortunately, you just couldn’t get yourself to let them fully go. In 2018, you will have the chance to rid yourself from the past for good. And most importantly, from that toxic individual you kept a part of your life for far too long. It’s time for something new.


October 23rd – November 21st

As a Scorpio, you keep your home life close to your heart. You love spending time with your family and friends that mean the very most to you. In 2017, you might have missed out on an opportunity to spend quality time with someone you love very much. You might have let life get in the way of showing that person how much they truly mean to you and how much you enjoy their existence. In 2018, remind yourself what really matters. Focus on what’s important. Give your time to people who give that time back. Don’t miss out on the chance to show that special someone how much you truly appreciate them.


November 22nd – December 21st

As a Sagittarius, you live life in a constant state of worry of what will happen next for you. In 2017, you might have missed out on the opportunity to make a major change in your life. It might have been within your job, relationship, or home life. Something happened, and you were given a choice to make. You may have opted for the easier, less complicated choice in fear of making bold decisions too quickly. In 2018, another big opportunity will present itself to you. And it will be hard to ignore, so don’t. Take the chance when it’s given to you this time, and be appreciative that it came back a second time, because second chances won’t come around very often.


December 22nd – January 19th

As a Capricorn, you are highly independent and remarkably self reliant. You have all the answers, so why ask for help? In 2017, you may have missed out on an opportunity to get very insightful advice from a very wise individual. And because you usually tend to block out the opinions of others, you might have missed some very valuable information that you’ve been searching for. Because in your mind, receiving help makes you weak. In 2018, its time for you to welcome that guidance. Accept help when it’s needed. It doesn’t make you weak, it actually shows your strength to know when to ask for a helping hand.


January 20th – February 18th

As an Aquarius, you have a bit of an temperament with the idea of settling down. You fear settling- for anything. In 2017, you may have overlooked a certain relationship in your life. They might have scared you off with their “possessive” approach, so you wrote them off immediately. And that’s how it usually goes for you in your love life. You push people away when things start to become too real. In 2018, it’s time that you give love a real chance. And although you’re afraid of settling for the wrong thing, you need to experience the wrong things in order to find the right ones.


February 19th – March 20th

As a Pisces, you have a bad case of the travel bug. You hunger for exotic lands in unfamiliar, distant places. It’s all you think about. You envision a life that’s filled with exciting, enticing adventures and you dream of traveling around the world. In 2017, you probably spent a lot of your time brainstorming and coming up with plans for your next big move, but not enough time was spent putting those ideas to good use. It is no doubt that you want to make a big move, so why haven’t you yet? In 2018, it’s time for you to quit making excuses. Just go. And never look back. You won’t regret it.
