(March 21st to April 19th)
You’ll ruin your life by settling for mediocre. You need a life that holds new adventure for you every day. You shouldn’t settle for less than that because it will only leave you feeling bored and empty inside when you’re full of life. Your positive attitude and outlook on life are a couple of your best features, don’t let that go to waste.
(April 20th to May 21st)
You’ll ruin your life by allowing stress and anxiety to overcome you. Instead of getting yourself worked up over things that are not in your control just breathe, focus on the things you can control and work on adjusting your mindset about the things you can’t control. Know that some way things will work out because the universe is on your side if you believe it.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
You’ll ruin your life by worrying about what other people think and say about you. Staying true to yourself is high on your list of things to do this year and I urge you to stick with it. Don’t let the fear of what others may think about you ruin your life because truth be told they probably aren’t thinking about you anyway (they’re too worried about what others are thinking about them, tbh). Just keep living a life that makes you happy and comfortable, and don’t let anyone else’s opinion change who you are.
(June 21st to July 22nd)
You’ll ruin your life by overcommitting yourself this year. You like to do things at your own pace, which sometimes is very quickly and sometimes very slowly. Don’t overcommit yourself to things you don’t really want to do just because you feel obligated, that will only put your happiness on the back burner.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
You’ll ruin your life by overthinking. You need to feel valued and important to the people in your life and you will kill that by thinking you’re not good enough. Don’t let your brain talk you out of just how wonderful you truly are because you think someone might not value your friendship as much anymore. Here’s the unpopular truth about that (if it’s actually the case) people change and you outgrow some people. It’s hard and it sucks, but sometimes we can’t control it and some people just don’t fit into your life anymore. It’s hard, but focus on the people who you know do love and value you.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
You’ll ruin your life by bottling up your emotions. Seriously. Don’t keep all the stress inside you, you need to shed it and get it off your chest. I’m not saying you have to complain to every person about what’s going on in your life, but find healthy ways to let it out. Maybe try a yoga class or take a hot bath after a long day, eat some dark chocolate or watch your favorite movie. Find something that works for you to ultimately help you feel less weighed down with stress and worry.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
You’ll ruin your life by looking for acceptance from people who you don’t even truly care about. The people in your life already accept you for you and you’re at peace with that, which is what’s ultimately important. Don’t look for acceptance from people who will never give it to you because you don’t need those people anyway.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
You’ll ruin your life by surrounding yourself with people who can’t offer you much or judge you. You’re an open person and you need to be surrounded by people who accept you for that. You need to be surrounded by people you can bounce ideas off of. You need to be true to yourself and be around non-judgmental people who allow you to share all you have to offer with them.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
You’ll ruin your life by trying to be someone you’re not. You need a life of freedom and people who accept you to be whoever you want to be. You shouldn’t try to conform or change for anyone because that will just end up making you miserable when you deserve to be happy. The people who are in your life are there because they love you and accept you so stay true that. Don’t change who you are based on other people’s expectations.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
You’ll ruin your life by not giving it 100 percent. You want big things but most big things require risks. Take the risks. What you really want is a life where everything you put in the world comes back and helps you make something of yourself. And that’s totally possible. Keep working hard after what you want and do kind things for others in the universe. Give it everything you’ve got and you won’t be disappointed – no more holding back.
(January 21st to February 18th)
You’ll ruin your life by always answering to someone. You do best on your own, free to do what you please. By restricting yourself and constantly having to answer to someone is slowly ruining your life. Don’t let that happen anymore. Have a conversation if needed or let whatever is holding you back go and live your most authentic life.
(February 19th to March 20th)
You’ll ruin your life by not appreciating the love you have in front of you. If you’re single you’ll ruin it by not feeling complete because you don’t have another half in front of you, but you are still surrounded by so much love. Don’t overlook that. If you’re in a relationship appreciate all the little things your significant other does for you and if you feel the relationship is becoming comfortable find new ways to spice it up. You thrive in a life where you have love close to you all the time and truth be told, there is love in everything in life. There’s love in every emotion, happy or sad, excited or angry, it’s in every single thing in the world, don’t overlook it and you will live your best life.
