Discover your perfect life motto according to your zodiac:
Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
“Accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what could be.”
You spend much of your time lost in your thoughts of the past, considering all the different decisions you could have made. While there is nothing wrong with learning from your past mistakes, be careful that this doesn’t become an obsession. Instead of spending all your time looking back on the past, focus your attention on the here and now.
Taurus (April 20th to May 20th)
“Nothing worth having comes easy.”
You’re an incredibly hard worker, willing to do whatever it takes in order to reach your greatest goals and dreams. Allow yourself to identify some big goals and dreams, and then put this dedication and incredible work ethic into play. Keep your eyes on the prize and you are sure to succeed.
Gemini (May 21st to June 20th)
“If it is not right, do not do it. If it is not true, do not say it.”
Your social life is an incredibly important aspect of your life, and you will go to great lengths to maintain it. You will go as far as taking whatever steps are necessary in order to ensure that you are seen as the fun, popular one. Don’t allow yourself to get caught up in the excitement of what is happening. Always hold onto your values, morals, and beliefs.
Cancer (June 21st to July 22nd)
“Never let your emotions overpower your intelligence.”
Overly sensitive and highly emotional, you often struggle to bring your thoughts and logic into your decisions. Don’t lose that huge caring heart of yours, however, don’t allow it to rule your life. Do your best to consider the logical side of the decisions that you are working on at this time.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
“It’s not all about me.”
The king of the jungle, you live your life as if you are the ruler and everyone else that you meet are your loyal subjects. It is important, however, to step back from time to time and remind yourself that this life isn’t all about you. Scientists are working hard to discover the center of the Universe and you’ll be surprised to learn that it isn’t you!
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
“I am enough.”
Highly self-critical and perfectionist, try to remember that you are far more invested in ensuring that you are ‘good enough’ in every situation than anyone else around you. Rather than overanalyzing everything, take a deep breath and prioritize your own self-care and actions in this life. Building confidence is key.
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
“Follow your heart but take your brain with you.”
You have an incredible sense of intuition, one that has proven itself to be right more often than not. You should learn to listen to it, following your intuition whenever possible. That being said, always remember to be practical in your decisions and actions. Listen to your heart, but don’t allow it to completely overtake your brain when it comes to bigger decisions.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 21st)
“Kill them with kindness and bury them with a smile.”
Highly passionate, you are easily triggered, and when you do go off it is like a ticking time bomb. Your anger is both your biggest downfall and your most powerful tool in this life. Learn to manage it, funneling it into productive areas of your life rather than lashing out at others all the time.
Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)
“Be willing to listen to others and be teachable. You’re not right about everything. Nobody is.”
You’re used to being the person that your friends will all go running to for the answers, but the truth is that you don’t always have them. While you carry yourself with confidence, giving others the impression that you always know exactly what you are doing, you need to learn to accept that you still have a lot to learn.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19th)
“Worrying will never change the outcome.”
Often struggling with anxiety and overthinking every situation that you enter into, your life motto reminds you of the importance of simply letting it go. As it says, worrying will get you nowhere. Rather than wasting that time, focus it on other, more deserving areas in your life.
Aquarius (January 20th to February 18th)
“Open mind, Open heart.”
When it comes to the people that you encounter in this life, you can sometimes be overly reserved. This is a technique that will certainly work to protect you, however, it can work TOO well. In order to develop genuine connections with your friends and family members, learn to approach life with an open mind and an open heart.
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
“Don’t over-think, just let it go.”
You’re the master of other thinking, always well aware of every last possibility for any situation in your life. This constant over analyzing can hold you back from enjoying the life that you are living. Take a deep breath and refocus your eyes on today.
