This Is Why You Thrive When You’re Single, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Joshua Fuller


(March 21st to April 19th)

Because being single means that you travel where you want when you want, you have way more time to explore passions and interests that fascinate you or make you happy, and you never feel like you have to slow down or dial it back just so that someone else can keep up with you.


(April 20th to May 21st)

Because being single means that you’re not constantly worrying over someone else’s feelings, you feel so much more secure and confident about yourself, and you can put so much more energy into the infinite number of friendships and family relationships that bring you joy and lightness.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

Because being single means that you’re free to put yourself first, you can spend your time only around people who support you and let you be your most authentic self, and you feel less pressure to be a version of yourself that is only focused on making someone else happy.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Because being single means that you’re not worried about someone possibly taking advantage of your kindness and compassion, you have more time to focus on taking care of yourself and your own needs, and you have more opportunities to put yourself and your own happiness first for once (since you never normally do so).


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Because being single means that you have so much more time and energy to focus on your ambitious goals,  you don’t have to feel guilty for putting in a ton of hours at work, and there is so much more space in your life to focus on the creative endeavors that you never had time for in relationships.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Because being single means that you have the space in your life to make more of a conscious effort towards working on your mental health and wellbeing, you have time for all of the solitary intellectual activities that bring you joy (reading, meditating, recreational education, etc), and you don’t have to waste any of your mental energy on all of the dating ‘games’ and rituals that don’t interest you in any way whatsoever.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Because being single means that you don’t have to worry about a significant other feeling insecure or neglected when it comes to the (large) amount of friendships that you have, you can be your typical flirtatious and outgoing self without feeling guilty, and you can maintain your easygoing lifestyle without having to worry about compromising for someone else’s preferences too.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Because being single means you can charge after your dreams and goals at 150 miles an hour without worrying about how another person fits into those plans, you can make one and five and ten year plans freely and flexibly, and you can make more of a conscious effort to get to know yourself better – which is a very important priority for you.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

Because being single means you have the freedom and time to focus on self-improvement and growth, you can put 100% of your effort and energy into your friendships, and you have plenty of space left over in your free time for the hobbies and passions that inspire you and challenge you to get better each day.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

Because being single means you can channel as much focus and time as you want into your career, you have space and room to mentally recharge from your busy schedule, and you have full control and freedom over how you spend the cherished alone time and free time that you have outside of work without ever feeling like you’re neglecting a significant other.


(January 21st to February 18th)

Because being single means you can dedicate a lot of your free time to the causes and humanitarian missions that are important to you, you always have the time and the emotional capacity to be there for your friends (since loyalty is so important to you), and you have the room to explore who you are as a person on your own, without the crutch of a partner or a significant other.


(February 19th to March 20th)

Because being single means you can concentrate on growing and nourishing your sense of self instead of using all that energy on a relationship, you don’t have to worry about someone taking advantage of your selflessness, and you have mental and emotional space to enhance your imagination and your sense of curiosity about the world.
