Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

You’re quite the wildcard, Aries. It’s hard for anyone to figure out where you’re going when you’re not even the slightest bit sure. You can be impulsive, but that’s not always a bad thing. Sometimes your most spontaneous decisions will be the best ones you make. You’ve got a strong personality, which means you’ll make a lot of allies — but, unfortunately, a lot of enemies too. Your goal is to work on understanding the difference. The life you deserve will be a rollercoaster of ups and downs, but trust me, the ups will be amazing.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

No one loves luxury the way you do, Taurus. You honestly can’t comprehend why some people don’t care for nice houses, fancy cars or the latest technological gadgets. Trust me, you’ve got the ambition to get what you want. You’re an honest-to-god hard worker, and you’re not afraid to reap the fruits of your labor. You deserve the kind of life people dream about — the happy family, the lovely house, and the successful career.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

I’ve never met a Gemini that wasn’t wonderfully weird. You’re not the sort of person who’s supposed to do something conventional. Instead, you’ll be the ones out there illustrating comic books, singing on Broadway, maybe even digging up ancient artifacts in South America. Some people will call you unrealistic, but they don’t realize that it’s the people who never try that never make it. The world is going to try to restrict you, but you just have to keep going against the grain. You’ll settle down someday, but only when you’re ready.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

More than almost anyone else, you deserve a life full of love, little crab. You care so much about the people around you to the point where you’ve probably had more than one person take advantage of you. But you’ve spent your life learning from your mistakes and finding ways to weed out the bad people, and the ones that are left at the end of the day are the ones who will love you unconditionally. The life you deserve revolves around people — not only the ones you love, but the ones you have the desire to help, even if they’re total strangers.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You’ve always wanted the life people write books about. You have big dreams, Leo, but it’s not always easy to realize them. While your life path might not specifically include fortune and fame, it does include plenty of wild adventures and noteworthy events. You’re loud and proud, and you’ll accept nothing less out of your life — you want laughter and happiness and adventure and drama. You may not end up in the spotlight like you wanted, but you deserve the kind of life your kids will tell stories about — and trust me, they probably will.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

You’ve always prided yourself on your realistic dreams and expectations — you know where you want to go and you’ve got a plan to get there. And honestly, knowing you, you’re probably going to succeed. Of course, your life isn’t going to turn out exactly how you expect it to — believe it or not, you can’t actually plan out you’re entire future. If you keep your focus, expect to end up where you want to end up, but just know there are going to be quite a few surprises along the way.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

The life you deserve is one spent in pursuit of what matters to you the most: the truth. You’re diplomatic and fair, but the fact that you can see both sides of a problem makes it a bit hard for you to choose what’s right — or worse, what you want. You’ll spend most of your life finding yourself and figuring out what your own truth is, but you won’t do it alone. You have a tendency to surround yourself with people you care about — in fact, you probably couldn’t function without them. Don’t worry, you’ll find yourself, and you’ll find plenty of love in the process.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

You’ve always sort of known you were made for great things, Scorpio. You like to lead and you have the resources that make you successful. But your life isn’t just here for creating a legacy, my little scorpion. You value family, friendship, and love, and you’re always craving some sort of intimacy. The one thing you’ll probably struggle with most is trying to strike a balance between your dreams and your reality — you’re going to want to work toward everything you’ve always wanted, but don’t neglect the things (and people) that are already there. If you can manage that, you’re set to be not only successful, but happy.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st )

You know that Robert Frost poem about the road less traveled? Well, it could have been written about you. You crave adventure and new experiences, and that’s likely to always keep your life interesting. You’re so positive that it honestly feels like good things have to happen to you. You won’t be quick to settle down, though — there’s so much you want to do in life, and you’re the type of person who’s going to go out and do them. In fact, I encourage you to. Enjoy every second, Sagittarius — you’re taking the road less traveled by, and it will make all the difference.

Capricorn: (December 22nd – January 19th)

You’re quite the traditionalist, and your life path is going to reflect that. You’re probably not the kind of person who’s going to live some crazy, out-there life. But that doesn’t mean that you’re not going to be happy, and that you’re not going to love most of it. You excel at work, so expect to end your life high up on the ladder even when you started on the very bottom. Once you feel accomplished with what you’ve done, you’ll be able to focus your energy elsewhere — namely, in creating a loving family and support system.

Aquarius: (January 20th – February 18th)

I’m convinced all Aquarians are secret geniuses and nothing you say or do can convince me otherwise. You’re not always the easiest person to understand, but face it, not everyone can handle great minds. The life path you deserve is full of stimulating, interesting things – you should give into your pursuit of knowledge and your want to understand the world. They say “curiosity killed the cat”, but rarely do people tell you the second part to that saying: “but satisfaction brought it back.” It won’t always be easy, but you’ll get there.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You’re a dreamy little fish and the life you’ve always wanted is just as fantastical. You’re often told your dreams are just a little too big, and maybe they are. But your life purpose is about testing the limits and aiming for the stars, then finding yourself along the way. You are anything but conventional, but that’s what makes you so special — because when you swim against the current, you’re going to end up somewhere no one else will. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
