How Every Zodiac Sign Will Ruin Their Own Life Without Even Trying To In 2018

God & Man


(March 21st to April 19th)

You’ll ruin your life every time you settle.

Settling means you’re unsure of something or someone in your life. Whether it’s a job or a person, if there’s a moment where something feels off even if you don’t know what that is, steer away from whatever might be causing those feelings. Because everything you attract in your life should make you feel whole not empty.


(April 20th to May 21st)

You’ll ruin your life allowing social media to dictate your happiness.

You ruin your life by thinking you need to snap everything. Thinking you need to Instagram your best moments. Feeling FOMO watching everyone’s highlight reels. But if your biggest concern is your reputation across social media and what you are projecting out there, you don’t need to appear to be living your best life. You have to go figure out what is your best life and find moments so great you want to keep it for yourself.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

You’ll ruin your life by not having more fun.

It’s okay to be serious. It’s okay to have goals you’ll probably achieve with your workaholic mindset. But don’t forget while you’re working to get somewhere to appreciate where you are now and who is beside you.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You’ll ruin your life by not letting go of the past.

If you live in the past you’ll become depressed. We have a way of repainting the past in our mind better than it actually was. So instead of thinking back and dwelling what don’t have make the present something the past can’t even compare to.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You’ll ruin your life by not trusting fate a little more.

Everything you are unsure of or scared about in your life is going to work out. You just have to trust the process of it all.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

You’ll ruin your life competing with everyone.

There are some things in life that are competitions. But the moment you realize the only person you should be competing with is yourself, you’ll be so far ahead of everyone you used to compare yourself to. Comparing ourselves to the best things we see in others isn’t the whole picture of who they really are. So if you just focus on yourself, you’ll realize you are your only competition.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You’ll ruin your own life by not giving yourself more credit.

You’re really hard on yourself always. You’re always trying to achieve more and do better. But it’s okay to take a break sometimes. You’re missing out on your life trying to get somewhere thinking happiness will be obtained once you get it. What you are failing to realize is all of these moments are your life and you’re failing to live in the moment.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

You’ll ruin your life by not letting go of grudges and forgiving people as well as yourself.

You have a hard exterior. On the outside, everyone thinks you don’t care. Anyone who knows you knows that is a lie. You are still hurt by something someone did to you years ago. Although you’ve accepted it you still haven’t forgiven yourself for letting it happen. We all get hurt and deceived sometimes. But you must not dwell on the past. Your heart isn’t like anyone else and the right people won’t hurt you.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You’ll ruin your life by making up excuses.

You aren’t a lazy person. In fact, you work your butt off and deserve a lot more credit for what you do. But you do makeup excuses for why you can’t go somewhere or do something even it’s been in the back of your mind for a while. What you should fear more than not doing something is wishing you had.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

You’ll ruin your life by putting love on the backburner.

When you’ve been hurt a lot you tend to gravitate towards fate and not trying anymore. You think what’s going to happen will. While it’s great not care about your relationship status, I know under the surface you really do want to meet someone. Don’t be afraid of putting yourself out there even if you’re scared to.


(January 21st to February 18th)

You’ll ruin your life by not letting go of that chip on your shoulder.

Sometimes it’s good to have a bit of an edge. A little reminder of why you have worked so hard. But when everything in your life is trying to prove something to people, you fail you look at the people who have been by your side and don’t care about what you do they just care about who you are. The people that matter are the ones you don’t have to prove anything to.


(February 19th to March 20th)

You’ll ruin your life by running from love.

You think you don’t deserve it. You think you’re better off alone. You pine after almost love stories and people who are emotionally distant and can’t be what you need. You can’t lose someone who was never yours, so going for people who are emotionally unavailable means you’re controlling that you’ll get hurt. But when you find yourself in a real relationship where everything is reciprocated it’s only when you have something to lose and that’s what you are afraid of. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
