It’s never easy to let go of bad habits and make room for positivity, but you have to tell yourself that 2018 will be different. This is what you may need to let go of in order to ensure a peaceful new year that allows you to be the best version of yourself.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th):
Start off on a new social leaf this year, Aquarius, with the realization that trusting others won’t cost you your independence. The people who care about you will keep you safe, and therefore there’s no reason to fear your feelings. You’ll still be free to be yourself while simultaneously confiding in your friends and family.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th):
You have less than two months now to let go of your past, but this is imperative for your future. You fear that ancient mistakes will resurface, and this is preventing you from recognizing your true potential while it’s also hindering new relationships. Use your intuition to feel out social situations rather than writing them off under paranoid pretenses.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th):
It’s important that you find a balance between adventure and stable relationships, and to do this you must let go of your inability to sit still. Thrill-seekers are alluring, but soon people figure out that your exciting lifestyle exists at the expense of your patience. In order to maintain connections with the people you love, you have to tone it down a little and take a lesson in tolerance.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th):
Stop confusing practicality with anti-change and accept that small transformations are necessary, especially in the midst of a new year. Newness doesn’t always guarantee that complications will arise. Remember that you’re a responsible individual who is more than capable of handling a little variation in your routine.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th):
You better make “decision” your new favorite word in 2018 because you’re about to make a lot of them. Avoid second-guessing yourself and allowing doubt to take over your every move, especially when it comes to your relationships. It’s OK to lead an exciting life, but people are beginning to think that your indecisive ways are getting old.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd):
Cancer, it’s time to apply the phrase “out with the old and in with the new” to your lifestyle. Your fear of meeting new people is preventing you from fully engaging your emotional side, for you’re hung up on the mistakes you’ve made in the past and it’s causing you to fear your truths. Learn to trust new friends without the assumption that they will inevitably hurt you like the others.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd):
Even though you don’t have trouble pinpointing your good qualities, you still fear that others dislike you when they don’t give you the attention you believe you deserve. Make 2018 the year that you let go of social paranoia.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd):
In order to live up to your full intellectual potential, you have to first cast away your fear of seeking help. Whether it’s at work or in your social life, asking for any advice that will help you become a better person is important. You can’t be the best version of yourself without addressing that there are areas of your life that need improvement.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd):
January marks your last remnants of harmful people-pleasing, for your undying need to make others happy is costing you your happiness. Avoiding conflict doesn’t actually help anyone, and therefore it’s time to apply your political senses to your social life and realize that all of your relationships deserve a joint effort.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st)
You don’t trust people yet you want others to trust you, and you can’t have it both ways. Next year, you have to realize that you can’t expect others to confide in you unless you do the same. You’re an amazing friend, but you have to show others that you truly trust them in order to keep them.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st):
You have to learn how to let people get close to you; refrain from applying your adventurous philosophies to your relationship patterns. Bringing your friends and family along with you on your intellectual journeys will provide you with an honest sense of comfort, and this will allow you to experience excitement in a way that doesn’t reject others.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th):
At the end of 2017, give yourself a pat on the back for all of your hard work this year, but change the way you view success as you go into 2018. Happiness requires a true balance, and in order to promote a realistic lifestyle, you should learn to have faith in the capability of others. Sometimes you do know best, Capricorn, but not always.
