(March 21-April 19)
I am a warrior with a keen ability to problem solve, but I am often so busy that I don’t take time for self-care. Even if I live life by the book, there are a few emotional matters that I still need to address. I love the high-energy, high-intensity lifestyle, but I admit I sometimes need to come back down to earth to find a place of healing. Physical fitness is a great way for me to unwind, but I need to be paying attention to my emotional mind as well. I find that by talking about the things I suppress, I will find help from those around me, and the heavy weight will be lifted off my shoulders.
(April 20-May 20)
I know how to make myself feel good. I enjoy feeling satisfied. My goal is to reach a place of personal pleasure. Once I achieve this, I can sit back, relax, and enjoy the simple things in life. I will not be scared to go after what I want. The things I have perceived as "in my way" are only obstacles which get in the way of me and my happiness. I have the strength to find whatever is missing. I will figure out what that is, and if I need to, I will do what I can to change what I don’t like. If I decide I want something, I will not be afraid to ask for it. I will not be afraid to go after it. I know that over time, I will get what I want.
(May 21-June 21)
I am at my best when I can be friendly and charming. But sometimes I am in a bad mood, and I don’t even know it. This is why I will pay more attention to my moods and mindsets, and allow myself to carve out a space for quiet and healing. When I am in my element, I know I can really shine, but I also feel pressure to shine all the time. This month I will find my own room, away from the clamor, where I can find peace. In that place I will clear my head and zone out for a time. I am a constant thinker and communicator, and my mind persists even when I am tired. But this month I will respect my limits, and be kind to myself.
(June 21-July 22)
This month I am in love with love. When love is flowing, I am in my happiest place. I long to be stable with another. I enjoy taking care of people, whether it be my partner, my friends, or my animal companions, I wouldn't be me if didn't love and protect those closest to me. This month I will see things grow, and help cultivate life. I will be in touch with both my emotional and comical side. I will feel ready to take the bad with the good. Every day will be different, and while my expectations will not be great, I will still dream big dreams. I will soon find something or someone I can rely on. When the positive force comes into my life, I will recognize it, and cherish it for the good tidings it will bring me.
(July 23-August 22)
I surround myself with positive light, so it takes a lot to get me down. At work I am never afraid to shoulder a heavy load, but I tend to lead with my heart, which means work stress can follow me home. I love being surrounded by people, but when work is overwhelming me this month, I promise to set aside some alone time for myself. I have a strong sense of loyalty—even if my definition of loyalty changes—but I sometimes sacrifice my own needs for those closest to me. This month I will find a balance between staying true to others, and fulfilling myself. I know if anyone has the power to make a situation brighter it's me. Leo is known to sweeten up a sour situation. When I am in a well-rested headspace, I can wholeheartedly embrace my environment and the people in it, flaws and all.
(August 23-September 22)
I know how to make myself feel good, but I also know how to drown myself in worry. This month I will satisfy myself on every level. It's important that I reach a place of internal contentment during these final days of summer. I will think about what I really want, and I will go after it because this is an ideal time to get it. As a critical Virgo, I find it challenging to fulfill my expectations, but once I begin I will see the good that is possible in the long run. I can admit I like things in order, but even when my ducks are in a row, I still find something to worry about. This month the universe is telling me to relax, to listen to my heart, and to enjoy the ever-changing weather. If there is good in my life, I had a part in making it happen. Now is the time to savor those happy moments. Whatever is lost can be found. I will stay stoic in my ways, but know that I am at my best when I am open about my faults. Nobody can find the right answer like I can. I will trust in my natural detective skills to guide me through the daily grind.
(September 23-October 22)
I will feel quiet this month. I may prefer communicating with my body and face instead of my voice. People may misinterpret my quiet as "playing it cool." They may try to get me to speak up, or pick a side, but I will shrug it off. I will do what’s best for me in my own time. I may struggle to find a healthy balance between my solitude and my social life. I will be careful not to overdo it in any one area. On these last lazy days of summer, I will find my own way to share energy with the people I love. I will feel a calming sense of harmony from within and out.
(October 23-November 21)
I am often very giving, but this month I deserve to be selfish. My friends know me as someone who drops my own life so I can better theirs. I will be open to the fact that I should let others do things for me. I will accept their love. I will not deny myself the things I want. Sacrifice will not weigh out my desires. I rarely take the front seat, but this month I will speak up for my own needs. I sometimes feel ignored, but I can rest easy. Others see how I share the spotlight, and think better of me for it. This August I will not deny myself the things that I want because I can have them. I will also battle with trust, and hesitate to open up to a new person. But I will work hard at opening up, as this person will introduce me to a perspective that may shift my priorities in a positive way.
(November 22-December 21)
I might let little things bother me here and there, but I'm not the type to stay down for long. I don’t want to talk too much about what's bothering me this month. My friends say I'd rather see the glass half full, which is true—as a Sagittarius I'm best known for my optimism. I feel powerful, and I can get lots done, but I will try harder to communicate my decisions with others. It might look like I'm upset about something small, but in my heart I know it's something much bigger that I don't want to think about. I'm going to open up and let others help me. A little fun, a little soul-searching, and a little travel are good prescriptions for me. I will come home to something loyal and earthy. I will let myself feel good.
(December 22- January 19)
I often feel like I need to work in order to feel complete. When work is unsatisfying, I will find a way to express myself in a different way this month. I have a lot to bring to the table, and when I take time for myself, I enter a much richer headspace. I want to feel like I have it all, but I also want to feel like I can relax, and enjoy life. I know I deserve everything good that comes into my life, but sometimes I have trouble knowing when it is enough. I often work super, so I will try to sit back, relax, and and relish in my accomplishments. I will try to share my deep, inner feelings with the loved ones in my life. I will work on letting go of people in my past who have hurt me. I will begin moving in the right direction, and making decisions that benefit me. I need to remember that my personal needs are important. I will pause and take a breath when I need to. I want to look back on what I've done and feel proud.
(January 19-Fenurary 18)
This is a month of celebration. It is a time to appreciate myself for all that I am. While I enjoy staying busy, I will not let "productivity" stand in the way of my self-care. If I take this time for me, I can feel better about myself and my relationships. I have a variety of relationships which fulfil me in different ways. I am going to filter out the negative energy and concentrate on the positive people in my life. I am always ready to embrace the world, but this month I will set a steady pace that will not overwhelm me. Plans and ideas will continue to flow easily. I will not get ahead of myself, and try to figure out the future. Instead I will kick back and enjoy life. I will try to ensure these last days of summer are productive, but also good for me.
Learning from the past is the key to a happier me! In the past, I felt like I repeated some of the same mistakes, but now, things are really starting to click for me. I will focus on what’s working, and stop trying to repair what’s broken. I've learned that sometimes you have to stick around long enough for your happiness to catch up to you. I will not take personally what I cannot control. I do not have control over how other people communicate with me. I am learning to let go of the bad stuff, so there's more room for the good. Focusing on my reality and what’s really happening has helped me see things for what they really are. This is a month of big change and improvement. I am getting closer and closer to my best self—and it is starting to show.
