Aries (March 21 – April 19)

As with every other sign, Aries struggle when they become stagnant in life. That pursuit of growth and bettering yourself wanes when you’re not being challenged. Figure out what it is in your life that is too bland, and change it.

This could be a dead-end job, a partner you’re not really connecting with, or just an absence of passion. Find a way to bring back the flame that motivated you to keep moving forward.

Taurus (April 20 – May 21)

You work hard and you know it, but sometimes you get a little too ambitious with your projects and fail to live up to your promises. Focus on channeling all of your energy into one project at a time. If you find yourself splitting your effort between tasks, you might also find yourself upset and disappointed that you didn’t do as well as you’d hoped.

It’s always better to do incredibly well on just a few things, than to have done mediocre on a lot of things.

Gemini (May 22 – June 21)

Gemini, you really thrive in life when you’re being regularly stimulated. This means you’re at your best when out and about living life to its fullest. Life has likely got you down because you haven’t been satisfying your need to experience new things. Remember to make time to meet new people, build new relationships, and learn and discover new things.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Cancers are naturally empathic and selfless. Unfortunately, this means that they sometimes get taken advantage of by toxic people. You need to choose to only give out your love and energy to people who are willing to reciprocate. If you don’t, you’ll quickly find yourself drained of energy and love, because no one is giving back, they’re only taking.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos become stagnant when they choose passivity and laziness over their immense need to be creative. Leos find true happiness by creating and making things that stem directly from their artistic passion. So, instead of choosing to be lazy and sit around the house, spark your creative side and make something. The more you do it, the faster happiness will find you.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Virgos are constantly working; they love the feeling of getting things done. But you also have an unhealthy focus on perfection, which often leads you to be highly critical of yourself. The best way for you to find happiness is by establishing a healthy balance between working hard and playing hard.

Always make time for yourself outside of work to pursue hobbies or passions that leave you feeling refreshed and inspired.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Libras have a natural curiosity for the world around them. So much so, that they often float from one thing to the next, never really delving too deep into any one subject. While it’s easy to get caught up with the excitement of something new, you must recognize that eventually it will be both hard and challenging, and that you might not be as good at it as you thought.

But, when things start getting difficult, don’t just move onto the next thing. Overcome your struggles and you’ll find a much deeper feeling of reward in your success; one that outweighs the initial excitement you gain from finding something new to try.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Scorpios often get caught up doing the same things that the people around them are doing. This can be wildly unhealthy if your friends and family have fallen into highly routine, unhealthy lifestyles. If the people you’re spending time with do nothing but sit at home and watch Netflix while stuffing their faces with junk food, you know that it’s time to re-establish your own routine that best serves you.

Start putting your energy into something you’re passionate about, and remember that you never have to do all of the things your friends are doing.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Sagittarius can bring back the happiness in their life by taking an active role in it. Always an optimist, you tend to expect things will just naturally work themselves out, leading you to live somewhat of a “whatever happens, happens” lifestyle. But, this is terrible for you. You need to start taking command over your life and choosing what happens to you, instead of just letting things happen to you.

Optimism is not the same thing as being proactive.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Capricorns have a tendency to think that life is either hard work and success, or happiness and contentment, but never both. The truth is that you can work hard and succeed and still maintain a happy, healthy lifestyle. The key is learning how to enjoy the small things that stem from the things you already do every day.

You’re very capable and smart, so acknowledge that you’ll work hard and get things done while also striving to reward yourself for your hard work. Whether that manifests as time with friends or a special vacation.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Aquarius, sometimes you forget just how draining it is to be so passionate and invested in causes that really matter. You struggle to make time for yourself to recharge and rejuvenate. If you want to keep up your vigilance, you must understand that your mind needs to rest just as your body does.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces are naturally curious, compassionate and open individuals. Unfortunately, they sometimes trust the wrong people and end up in situations where they’re being treated poorly. When this happens, the Pisces usually just assumes that they deserve whatever behavior they’re being given instead of demanding that they deserve better.

This is where you need to fix things, Pisces. When it comes to every aspect of life, recognize when you don’t want to settle and would rather seek out something that genuinely makes you happy. Just show yourself the same love and compassion that you’re always showing others.
