(March 21st to April 19th)

Aries, we get it — you’re incredibly courageous and brave even Harry Potter would be impressed. However, in 2018 you need to take a step back and really think before you decide to take that job or date that handsome guy. Really listen to your gut. Make wise choices instead of just going on impulse.


(April 20th to May 21st)

You’re incredibly practical and 2017 was a rather… underwhelming year for you. For 2018, try to move out of your comfort zone. You don’t have to be so logical all the damn time! In 2018, make sure you live a little! You only live once.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

Like many people, you despise being alone. But the year of 2018 is full of new possibilities and experiences for you. Please for the love of God, reach for the stars and do things on your own. You aren’t a child anymore! Go to a bar by yourself. Go on that online date you’ve been putting off. Go buy that plane ticket. Truly live.


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

As sweet as you Cancers are, y’all really need to grab 2018 by the balls. You spend way too much thinking about other people and what their needs are. But what are your needs? What are your dreams. Stop ignoring yourself. Stop putting yourself in second place or else you’re going to be lonely for the rest of your life.


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You spent 2017 ignoring what was right in front you. You spent 2017 being far too stubborn for your own good. Let 2018 be the year you let down your walls. It’s not cute to act like you have no feelings!


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

In 2018, you need to stop being so self critical of everything that you do. You need to realize that you are a human being just like everyone else. When you fuck up and make mistakes, don’t beat yourself up. Forgive yourself and you’ll save yourself a lot of grief.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Seriously Libras, you guys need to start standing up for yourselves. Stop hiding behind other people. Stop thinking you aren’t good enough. You ARE good enough. You ARE enough. You just have to start believing it before your life becomes something you hate.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Life is about sharing, right? Right! So step it up and start letting your guards down. I know you’re super distrusting of every single human being you come across but you truly are going to end up #foreveralone if you don’t get your act together in 2018.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

You all need to chill with work in the year of 2018. I get that it’s your pride and joy, but you will kill yourself by not taking any breaks or vacations. In 2018, take two or three chill pills. Trust me. Life isn’t all about work.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

Stop being so lazy in 2018. The world isn’t going to bow before you all the time like before. Step up to the plate and go out and show yourself that you’re more than you think you are.


(January 21st to February 18th)

In 2018, you need to pull the curtains away from your heart. You will never experience true love if you don’t at least try to connect with someone. Staying boarded up and closed off from the world will do you know good in the long.


(February 19th to March 20th)

You need to stop letting the past mess up your future. You need to start truly letting go of the pain and the heartache that you always let rule your life. Let 2018 be a new start. Finally. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
