Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

Doing the same thing every single day, having a bucket list with practically nothing crossed off, and feeling absolutely no passion about your career or where it’s going.

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

Only seeing your closest friends and family on special holidays, disliking your home and feeling like it lacks warmth or personality, and never feeling steady or certain about your life path.

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

Not having an active social life, never venturing outside your routine to try new hobbies, and ‘never finding the time’ to pursue intellectual activities like reading a certain number of books each year or signing up for classes on subjects that interest you.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Feeling like most of your conversations are superficial, only having one or two friends who you feel comfortable enough with to talk about deep things, and being in a relationship where your significant other doesn’t fully get you.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Finding yourself in a career where you barely ever (if at all) get to think creatively, being misunderstood or even disliked by your coworkers, and not making the time to volunteer or pursue philanthropic ventures even though it’s something you’ve always wanted to do.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Having a lifestyle where you feel like you’re only ever ‘getting by’ and can never stay on top of things, feeling like your living space is never as neat or as organized as you’d like it to be, and having a career and a social life that exacerbates your anxiety more than it helps it.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Feeling like you’re just having the same conversation over and over, not being excited by your friends anymore, and not having trouble finding people to date but having trouble finding people who can hold your interest more than five minutes.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Not living up to your full potential, having that one passion or interest or career goal that you always secretly wanted to pursue but were too embarrassed or intimidated to admit, and living in a city or town that makes you feel bored and listless.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

Being surrounded by friends and coworkers who just whine all the time, always coming up with great ideas or goals you want to go after but then never following through, and feeling stifled in every part of your life – friendships, career, hobbies, weekend plans, relationship, etc.

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

Not having time to focus on things you care about outside of work, feeling like you’re plateauing in your career rather than rising up a ladder, and never feeling like you make an effort to let out your goofy/silly side.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

Feeling numb much of the time, rarely experiencing lows but also rarely experiencing highs, and feeling like you haven’t been challenged, scared, or impassioned in a very long time.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

Having friendships where you’re the one doing most of the work, feeling lost and aimless in terms of where you want your career to go, and rarely ever venturing outside of the city in which you live. TC mark

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
