For many people all over the world, 2020 has turned their world upside down. Each one has suffered a loss in one form or another, on so many different levels. In spite of this, everyone is hopeful, looking to the future. When things will finally go back to normal.
Unfortunately, no one knows if and when things will even go back to the way they were. The most practical thing you can do right now is to plan ahead and become the best version of yourself. Here are some of the best life lessons you can apply for 2021 based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21- April 19)
Learn how to let go. Accept that you can and never will be able to control everything- so stop trying. Your urge to do everything on your own to make sure it comes out perfect will only drive you nuts.
Learn to delegate. Learn to teach but be open to other people’s ideas as well. Don’t be scared to open up and be yourself. That’s the only way you can truly be happy.
Taurus (April 20- May 20)
Quit overthinking. But you cannot address this problem unless you truly acknowledge that this is happening. Your awareness will be the start of such change. Stop focusing on what can go wrong, instead, think of all the things that can go right.
Distract yourself from such thoughts by doing things that you love. Boxing, painting, cooking, etc. Happiness is a great antidote to overthinking. Finally, try to put things into perspective. Is it really going to matter in the next five to ten years? Or just for a few days or weeks? This simple question can easily loosen overthinking’s grip on your head.
Gemini (May 21- June 20)
You cannot pour from an empty cup. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be the most loving, caring person in the world. But always trying to be there for everyone and putting yourself last on your priority list can be downright treacherous!
One cannot stress enough the value of self-care especially in these crucial times. You need to be physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually fit before you can take care of the people around you. Love yourself first, and the rest will follow.
Cancer (June 21- July 22)
Your past is a life lesson, not a life sentence. Forgive your old self, love your current self, and work on your future self. Everyone makes mistakes. The important thing is that you do not turn them into a vicious cycle.
You cannot expect to have a different result while using the same formula over and over again. Everyone deserves a second chance. You are not an exception.
Leo (July 23- August 22)
Cut off all the negative energy in your life. Toss them out the window, flush them down the drain! Toxic friendships, relationships, habits, way of thinking- anything that is weighing you down must go!
Yes, old habits die hard. But they’re not indestructible. It will hurt, it will sting, it can even drive you a little nuts. Have some faith. Just accept the pain, the process. Sooner or later it WILL end. And you will find yourself stronger, more resilient than ever.
Virgo (August 22- September 22)
Stop procrastinating. Easier said than done, right? Because this isn’t just about you being lazy or irresponsible. For others, this is a defense or coping mechanism to delay the pain or discomfort that may go with the task at hand.
Look at the bigger picture. It’s perfectly normal to feel confused and dazed at the start. But also remember that your worth will not be depleted by failure. After tons of failure, you’re no longer starting from scratch, but from experience.
Libra (September 23- October 22)
Finish what you have started. Your impatience has gotten the better of you in the past. Don’t do it again. It’s okay to want to do so many things at the same time. You believe in the power of multitasking. In the process, however, you have become too overwhelmed with so little time and so much to do. Thus, you accomplish nothing in the end.
Start with short, achievable goals before you add things up, or decide to level up. Being able to finish or accomplish something will boost your confidence. This will also push you to do a lot better with future endeavors.
Scorpio (October 23- November 21)
Overcome trust issues. First, discover the depth of your wound. What kind of trust issue do you have? Have you been lied to? Cheated on? Betrayed by the people you love the most? This can definitely harbor fear and resentment, but it’s workable.
Deeper wounds are much more challenging to conquer. Especially if these involve physical, emotional, or sexual abuse and trauma. You may need to seek professional help.
So what do you do? Remember that people are born to love, not to fear. This is basic human survival instinct. But learn to choose which experiences to distrust and which ones to trust and take the leap on. That’s the only way you will truly be free.
Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)
Stop being your worst critic. Other people can do that for you. Be your biggest cheerleader instead. Know that your best is enough. Even if you fail, if you know that you put your heart and soul into a certain project, business or endeavor, that is more than enough.
No one will love and support you until you do. If you look at yourself as a loser, then people will see you as one. If you look at yourself as a success story who can inspire and encourage others, that’s exactly how people will treat you.
Capricorn (December 22- January 19)
Be content. It doesn’t mean not wanting or desiring anything more. It just means you’re thankful and joyful for what you have right now, while patiently waiting for what is in store for you in the future.
Sometimes, it is not the fulfillment of your desires, but the state of being mentally and emotionally satisfied with where you are.
Aquarius (January 20- February 18)
Dreams don’t come true by themselves. There’s no such thing as luck. It’s hard work met with amazing opportunities. If there are no opportunities, create your own!
This is not limited to your work or career. The same goes for your relationships. If you want something to happen, then make it happen! If you really want to ask that lovely lady on a date you’ve been eyeing for ages, do it before someone else does!
Pisces (February 19- March 20)
Be good to others. The more compassion and kindness you foster, the more capable you become of becoming the role model people adhere to. Your respect is earned, not demanded.
This will give your life purpose and meaning. Most of all, it can even improve your mental, physical, and emotional health.
