You’re still facing the world head on and not letting it beat you.
Right now, you’re looking for a bit of inspiration. You’re looking for some sort of direction that’s going to allow you to get back on or adjust your current life path. Sometimes we all need a little push or a little tough love for us to realize what we need to do to get pull ourselves back up and looking to astrology and your horoscope can help you there.
This fall, the inspirational quotes you need to hear are meant to inspire you and guide you back to a place where you can begin to feel like you again. Even if your world is falling apart right now, you can with a just a bit more push get through a really difficult year.
Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
Slow down. Calm down. Don’t worry. Don’t hurry. Trust the process. -Alexandra Stoddard
Trust. Seriously Aries, learn to trust the process. You need to realize that everything is going to work out. I get it, 2018 has been a dumpster fire, but that doesn’t mean that you start to freak out and think that everything your life path is messed up. Yes, everything is completely overwhelming right now, but it’s going to get better. With a little faith and a whole lot of trust, you’ll realize you are exactly where you need to be and learning the lessons you need too in order to move forward.
Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes -Marcel Proust
Sometimes our eyes get covered by certain things and we cannot see what’s in front of us. You need to be more open-minded when it comes to a lot of parts in your life. It’s easy to see everything in the world as black and white but sorry to tell you, gray areas exist. It’s hard to take situations we’ve written off as bad and look at them with a new set of eyes, but you really need to right now. Not everything is going to be the greatest all the time but if you see it from a different angle, it might help you cope more with those really terrible moments.
Gemini (May 22nd to June 21st)
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. -Albert Einstein
These past few months have been a lot for you, Gemini, but for some reason, you’ve closed off a bit. Instead of questioning things around you, you’ve just kind of accepted the way things are. This going with the status quo of your situation is literally killing you. You used to be so curious and look for new ways to do things but now you just go with the old tried-and-true. Your life is lacking excitement but that’s because you stopped creating it for yourself. Get curious again and you will feel elated with the new things you learn and do.
Cancer (June 22nd to July 22nd)
Worrying about how things might go wrong, doesn’t help things to go right. -Karen Salmansohn
Cancer, you worry wart, you. Stop it. Stop worrying about the future. Stop worrying if your friend likes the present you got her for her birthday. Stop creating this space that’s just a giant ball of nerves because it is doing you more harm than good. Your concerns are causing you to be on edge and you really don’t need to live this way. Start to take more deep breaths and walks when those anxious feelings start to come up. You’re OK. You’ve got this. You’ll be alright.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply. -Stephen R Covey
Leo, I say this with love, but you really need to start listening more. You need to listen to the people in your life. You need to listen to yourself. You need to listen to nature. Just listen. Instead of getting in your own head with what you’re going to reply with, really hear what someone is trying to say to you. If you take a minute and listen to your heart instead of pushing forward, you might really learn you’re not being true to what you actually want. Listening is such an under-rated skill. You never know what you might learn about the world around you if you take a second to hear someone else’s perspective without creating your reply in your mind. Listening really is the best thing you can do for another person.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
Grace is meeting those moments on the journey, then picking yourself back up, being humble enough to learn and not being too hard on yourself. -Michelle Peluso
Stop being so hard on yourself, Virgo. I get it, it’s great when everything is perfect and you’re on top of your game ensuring that every little thing is in its neat package. But that’s not how life works often. You need to stop going internally and berating yourself because you messed something up or something didn’t work out to plan. If you step back, take a deep breath and turn that negative self-talk into something more positive, you’ll feel a whole lot better.
Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)
Life is too short for long-term grudges. -Elon Musk
You really need to learn to let things go. Forgive that person who broke your pencil in the first grade. Say you’re sorry first. Make peace and forgive yourself for everything you perceive that you’ve been doing completely wrong lately. The quicker you are to learn the art of forgiveness, the easier it’s going to be to rebound. Letting things go will allow you to make space for the good things in life.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 22nd)
What makes you vulnerable makes you beautiful. -Brene Brown
I feel like Scorpios are really tired of hearing “be vulnerable” or “let down your guard a bit” but if you just did that Scorpio, then we wouldn’t have to keep telling you. Brene Brown is right, vulnerability is beautiful. Letting someone into those dark and scary parts of your heart will only allow you to bond with someone deeper than skin level. It’s not a bad thing to let someone in and let them see your true self, hell I bet they’ll even love you more when you do that. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable with someone gives them permission to be vulnerable too so JUST DO IT!
Sagittarius (November 23rd to December 21st)
Without patience, we will learn less in life. We will see less. We will feel less. We will hear less. Ironically, rush and more usually means less. -Mother Teresa
Slow down Saggitarius. This year has been nothing but go, go, go for you since the clock struck midnight on New Year’s. You need to take time to be at peace, so you can attack everything without feeling like it’s all a panic. Yes, your to-do list is a mile long but if you slowly start to check things off and finish tasks before moving onto the next one, you’re going to feel a hell of a lot better. I get that things seem crazy but when you take a deep breath, refocus and look at things as individual issues instead of as a whole, your stress will magically start to alleviate.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)
Little by little we human beings are confronted with situations that give us more and more clues that we aren’t perfect. -Anonymous
Perfectionism does not exist. Keep reminding yourself that Capricorn. You don’t always have to be the best, the smartest or the most successful in every room. Sometimes allowing people to see your flaws will make them realize you are not a robot who believes everything can be perfect all the time. It’s just not realistic. The more you remember that perfectionism isn’t a real thing, the better it will be for you and your sanity in the long run. So, come on Capricorn, make a mistake or two.
Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
Don’t keep all your feelings sheltered — express them. Don’t ever let life shut you up. – Dr. Steve Maraboli
You are so passionate, Aquarius. Passion is electric, and you radiate it. But for some reason, expressing your emotions isn’t something that comes naturally. You find they always manage to get stuck inside of you and makes you slightly hard to relate too. I get it, it’s hard to convey emotion in everyday life but you can do it if you put your mind to it. When people feel emotions, they find it easier to identify with you on a different level. This means by putting some more emotion behind your passion, people are going to get excited about those topics with you.
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
Saying yes to happiness means learning to say no to things and people that stress you out. -Thema Davis
We all get caught up in the negative things in life Pisces, and someone as sensitive as you gets caught up in those feelings easily. You say yes to everything which leaves you drained and more susceptible to getting caught in a negative feedback loop. Start saying no to things. Start spending time on all the things you want to do instead of what you think you’re supposed to do. The second you start saying the word no, I promise you, you’re going to find those negative cycles are few and far between.
