(March 21st to April 19th)
You fall back in love with your life by opening your eyes to opportunities that you would typically overlook. Anything that’s loud, exciting, or invigorating will always catch your eye, but you truly ‘wake back up’ when you remember that joy and thrill can be found even in the little things.
(April 20th to May 21st)
You fall back in love with your life by learning to support people (and let them support you) rather than trying to fix their problems for them. Because you want to take care of everybody, your instinct is to absorb everyone else’s stress, frustrations, or anxieties in order to hopefully make them happier, but all this ends up doing is making your life harder, heavier, and more stressful. Once you realize that the right kinds of people will love you just for being there, and that they don’t need you to solve their issues for them, you will feel a thousand times lighter and a thousand times happier.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
You fall back in love with your life by remembering that people don’t obsess nearly as much (or at all) about your life as you do. Even though you’re a lively, energetic, and dynamic person, you tend to stress out a lot about other people and whether or not they like you. When you’re constantly worrying about saying something stupid or looking foolish, you can’t relax and be yourself. But as soon as you get in the mindset of remembering that no one’s as worried about how you look as you are, it’s a lot easier to stop worrying so much about other people’s opinions.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
You fall back in love with your life by learning to be at peace with the fact that you can only control your own emotions. As someone who reads others so easily and constantly feeds off of their energies, it’s hard not to get overly sensitive and touchy about other people’s feelings. But once you learn that you’re only in charge of your own emotions, you’ll feel freer than you have in a long time.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
You fall back in love with your life by being receptive to change and to others’ ideas. Because you’re the creative one with the quick mind, you’re used to everyone following your ideas. So when things don’t necessarily go your way, you have a hard time adjusting and being flexible to other perspectives. But as soon as you learn to become more adjustable to other mindsets, your work gets better, your relationships get better, and your mental health gets better.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
You fall back in love with your life by prioritizing laughter and silliness again. When your natural personality setting is ‘intellectual’ and ‘analytical’ it’s hard to remember to make room for lightness in your life. But being a diligent and focused person doesn’t mean you can’t also make time for laughter and goofiness, even while you’re working – they don’t have to be mutually exclusive things. Giving yourself the freedom to be a goofball sometimes will help tremendously with your tendency to worry about things and be overly critical of yourself, and it will bring back a lot of joy into the things you used to love to do that have begun to cause you stress.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
You fall back in love with your life by being more present in your own relationships. You don’t have any problem making friends or spreading your light around to others, it’s one of your best characteristics. But when you have so many friendships and so many important people in your life, it can feel like you’re distractedly hopping from one friend to the next without finding any real substance in anything. But when you focus on actively listening to people and being conscious and present with whoever you spend your time with (putting your phone away, making eye contact, asking questions, etc) you’ll feel a lot more strengthened and a lot more rejuvenated by those around you, as well as by your own company.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
You fall back in love with your life by letting yourself trust others. You certainly have faith in yourself – you’re tough, hardworking, determined, and magnetic – but sometimes you’re so self-sufficient and so independent that you have a hard time relying on or trusting other people. As soon as you stop trying to do everything on your own and learn that you’re not supposed to struggle through the challenges in your life entirely by yourself, the more you’ll see that life (and relationships) is a balance of give and take – being responsible for yourself, but also taking care of others, but also letting them help you up sometimes, and contributing to things that are greater than yourself.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
You fall back in love with your life by becoming more active in your choices and more confident in yourself. There is nothing wrong with being an optimistic, go-with-the-flow kind of person. But it’s also important that you don’t become so flexible that it’s detrimental to your life – in the sense that you become passive, careless, or passionless. By learning the balance between taking your life into your own hands while also maintaining your wonderful qualities of positivity and buoyancy, you’ll be reminded of how much you can truly do.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
You fall back in love with your life by learning to compromise more with yourself. It’s fantastic that you’re such a driven, ambitious, and motivated person. But when you refuse to let yourself take a break or have a moment to be a little human, you will continue to burn out regularly. The moment you start to be more gentle with yourself – by letting yourself take time to relax or decompress or simply to ‘just be’ – you will feel like a whole new person living a whole new life.
(January 21st to February 18th)
You fall back in love with your life by embracing your curious spirit and letting yourself try whatever you want to try. It might feel safer or more controllable to not care about anything (or at least, to not get your hopes up about the things you’re secretively passionate about), but you will find so much more joy and thrill in your existence when you squash your impulse to be detached and instead fully embrace your desire to learn, to try, to (possibly) fail, and to take risks.
(February 19th to March 20th)
You fall back in love with your life by concentrating less on dreaming and focusing more on doing. Your imagination is tireless and always expanding, which is a great thing, but not if all you’re focusing on is the dreaming part and not the how-can-we-make-this-happen part. As soon as you remember that everything seemed impossible until the first person did it, you will learn that even if you fail at something or try to make a dream come to fruition and are ultimately unsuccessful, you still lived, you still learned, and you probably ended up somewhere that’s even better than where you initially hoped.
