Aries: March 21st – April 19th

In 2017, you said goodbye to toxic people. You might think of that as a bad thing, as you losing people. But really, you gained something. You gained self-worth. You gained a fresh start. A chance to start over.

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

In 2017, you realized that you were unhappy with a certain aspect of your life. Maybe it was your career. Maybe it was your relationship. Maybe it was yourself. Either way, realizing you took the wrong path isn’t a setback. It’s a step in the right direction. Now, in 2018, you can follow your heart. You can create the life you really want.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

You feel like 2017 was a waste of a year because you hit rock bottom. You suffered through the most stressful days of your life. But, if you look on the bright side, that means things can only get better from here. That means 2018 is automatically going to be more successful than 2017. That means you have so much to look forward to achieving.

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

In 2017, you realized the person you spent so much of your time on wasn’t right for you. You realized how much energy you wasted, how stupid you were. But that realization is actually a good thing. In 2018, you can finally move on. In 2018, you can finally find someone you deserve.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

In 2017, you spent a lot of your time working. Making money. Making a name for yourself. You might feel like you didn’t have enough time to drink and hang out with your friends, but since you did so much work this year, you’ll be able to relax more next year. You’ll be able to afford that vacation you’ve been daydreaming about for so long.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

This year, you lost someone you loved. Someone you were devastated to say goodbye to because your love was so strong. But in 2018, you can let your loss remind you that every single day is a blessing. You can let your loss remind you to appreciate what you have while you still have it. You can let it remind you to stop taking good things for granted.

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

In 2017, some of your best friends moved away or got married or had children, seemingly leaving you behind. Even though it sucks to see them less, it’s actually a good thing, because now you are more comfortable alone. Now you have more time to focus on yourself.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

In 2017, you tried new things. You traveled to new places. You put yourself into new situations to find yourself. You still don’t know who you are, but you are getting closer to figuring it out. In 2018, you just might finish the job.

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st

In 2017, you made mistakes. You screwed up. Even though you might hate yourself for what you’ve done, you learned how to take responsibility. This year, you might feel like you failed as a person, but really, you grew as a person. You are slowly becoming someone you can be proud of.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th

2017 went by in a flash. Looking back, you feel like you didn’t get nearly enough accomplished. But that is okay. You can let your disappointment with 2017 be your motivation for 2018. You can let it inspire you to do more, to try harder. You can use it as a reminder to be as productive as possible.

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

You didn’t date much in 2017. You were mostly single. But that is a good thing because your time alone (and your time texting fuckboys that never became your actual boyfriend) gave you the chance to learn what you do and do not want in a relationship. It helped you learn more about yourself and you can put that information to good use in 2018.

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

There were times in 2017 when your anxiety got the best of you and you turned down party invitations. When you said no to things you didn’t want to do. Some friends distanced themselves from you because of that. But that’s actually a good thing, because you are finally taking care of your mental health. You are finally putting yourself first. You are finally doing what is best for yourself. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
