The Mistake You’re Already Making This Early In 2018, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Brandon Woelfel

Aries: March 21st – April 19th

You are acting like a pessimist. Since January and February have started off rough, you keep telling yourself that it’s a wasted year, that nothing good is going to come of it. However, you can’t think that way. There is still a lot of the calendar left. You have a lot of room to grow. You have a lot of opportunities headed your way. Stop selling yourself short. Stop assuming the worst. Let yourself believe.

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

You are already falling back into old habits. You might feel like you are never going to change, but you have to remember everyone has setbacks. Maybe you broke a promise to yourself once or twice or fifty times already this year, but that doesn’t mean you should stop trying to change your behavior. You need to rediscover your motivation, because you can do this. 

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

Lately, you have been busy beating yourself up. Instead of counting your achievements, you have been counting your failures. You have a habit of staying up too late, replaying your regrets. However, you need to step away from the past and focus on your present, because things aren’t as bad as they seem. You aren’t as lost as you think. You are enough.

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

You are loving too hard. You need to cut back on the intensity. Save some of the love you have been handing out to other people for yourself. You can’t keep bending over backwards to please them and neglecting yourself in the process. Your soft heart is something to be admired, but don’t let yourself get taken advantage of. You matter too, you know.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

You are allowing a toxic relationship to continue. Whether the person is your lover, your childhood friend, your parent, or your sibling, you need to cut them out of your world. If you continue to entertain their drama, you are going to continue to deal with the stress and anxiety they bring with them. Until you walk away from them, your problems will repeat themselves in a never-ending loop.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

You are actively trying to become a better, more rounded person. However, you are putting too much stress on yourself. You are doing too much in one day. It’s only early in the year so by the time your birthday hits, you are going to be burnt out. You aren’t going to be able to keep up this speed forever. You have to slow down and pace yourself if you want to create lasting success.

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

You are letting your fears overshadow your desires. Instead of going out and chasing what you want, you are cowering inside of your bedroom. You are afraid to leave your comfort zone. That needs to change. You need to put hard work behind your aspirations, because they aren’t magically going to fall into your lap.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

You are not giving yourself enough credit. You have been stretching your limitations, spreading your love. Even though you have been running around like a crazy person, you still feel like you aren’t doing enough — but you are. You should be proud. You should take a second to step back and admire everything you have accomplished this early in the year.

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st

You have been hurt before and promised yourself you would never let it happen again. You said this would be the year for you. However, that doesn’t mean you have to shove love to the side whenever it walks your way. You are allowed to have feelings for someone. You are allowed to pursue a relationship. You don’t have to continue sheltering yourself.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th

You are placing too much emphasis on your career and not enough on your personal life. You are flourishing in the workplace but struggling in every other aspect of your world. You have to remember that balance is the key to lifelong happiness. You can’t tip the scale in one direction and expect to feel successful. You have to find a way to make room for everything that matters in your life, not just one thing.

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

You have been reconsidering whether you are truly happy where you are right now. Instead of fighting against the fear of change, you should embrace it. You are allowed to change your path midway to the finish line. You are allowed to look for a new relationship or a new career or a new home. You are allowed to do something different with 2018 than you did with 2017.

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

You are letting other people make your decisions for you. Whether you’re trying to figure out what color to dye your hair or which college major to choose, you ask around instead of relying on your gut instinct. Stop letting other people choose your future path. They know what is best for you on paper, but only you know what is best for you in your heart. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
