So, you have an inner need to escape from reality whether it is by watching a TV show or losing yourself in a good book, or in any way that works for you. However, a piece of advice for 2018 would be to start your own story by writing in your journal. You don’t have to be a professional writer for this, you need to speak only through your heart.
AIR SIGNS: FIND A WAY TO BECOME MORE GROUNDED.
Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are the air signs. If there is one word that can describe them is FREEDOM. Also, they are very easy to adapt to any new situation that presents in their way.
New people, places, or situations don’t scare them. They are always looking for something new and exciting. In 2018, they should try to stay more grounded and have more consistency in their life. They can do this by adding more routines in their life.
Gemini – Buy a cookbook and cook yourself delicious meals!
Gemini, your dual personality can really get in your head, and because of that, you are very flighty and curious individual. You can make yourself crazy if you have to stay in for 2 nights in a row. You want variety and excitement more than anything. So, in order for you to become more grounded in the year to come, buy a cookbook and indulge your curious nature in learning new cooking skills. This can make you feel grounded and at the same time, it will satisfy your need for variety because you can cook different meals every day.
Libra – Take some me-time in the bathtub.
Libra, you are a social butterfly. You get along with everyone and people love your friendly nature. However, social situations no matter how energizing can sometimes be draining too. So, for you to rediscover the balance in your life you need to spend more time alone. Take some time to relax in your bathtub and enjoy a nice hot bubble bath. Pampering yourself can feel really good, but be careful, you might get used to it (which is not a bad thing.)
Aquarius – Read a book on psychology, spirituality, or wine!
Aquarius, you love knowledge! There is not a thing that entertains you more than learning a new thing. Your topics of interest are abstract things like religion and psychology. So, in the following year, instead of reading articles, go to the local bookstore and grab an old book and learn something valuable that will satisfy your expensive taste and also learn more about yourself.
FIRE SIGNS: CUT YOURSELF SOME SLACK!
Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are the fire signs. These signs are all about ACTION. They have an impulsive and ambitious nature, and they are always on the move. Also, they tend to set impossible standards for themselves and get disappointed when they fail to meet them.
So, the next year, they really need to take a time-out and start relaxing more. They should try to travel more, and find activities that keep the child in them alive. They should do things that make their heart joyous and happy.
Aries – Take a class that is completely out of your comfort zone!
Aries, being the first zodiac sign you have accustomed to being number 1 anytime. Your competitive nature makes your true essence, but your obsession with winning can sometimes be bad for you. So, next year try something which is outside of your comfort zone. Take a sushi or a yoga class. Anything that is unusual for you. This will widen your skills and you will embrace the fact that you can’t be number 1 every time.
Leo – Spend a whole day completely alone.
Leo, you are a warm and charismatic person. You are the center of attention everywhere you go. And, you really ENJOY the attention. However, being always in the spotlight can make you measure your self-worth through the validation you get from others. So, it is crucial for you to give yourself some time alone and reconnect with your true nature. You can spend a whole day pampering yourself all you want, but you should do it alone!
Sagittarius – Add a weekly hike to your schedule!
Sagittarius, you are the optimist of all Zodiac! You value your freedom and your independence, so the thing you hate the most is when you feel like you are stuck when it comes to your living situation. You love adventures and traveling and meeting other people and different cultures. So, add hiking to your weekly agenda. It can help you to reconnect with yourself and your thoughts.
