This Is The New Year’s Resolution For You Based On Your Zodiac Sign

The new year is the perfect time to set goals, make changes, and have a fresh start, but it can also be hard to figure out where to begin. Plus, 2021 isn’t just any new year – I mean take a look back at 2020, we have so much to turn the page from.

Well, one helpful place to start is to look to the stars. Based on their characteristics, every Zodiac sign has a potential goal they can work toward in 2021, despite whatever obstacles may be coming their way. Keep reading to find out about your sign’s resolutions, and cheers to a new year!

ARIES

aries

As one of the most restless signs, Aries are enthusiastic and can have a hard time sitting still. Lean into that need for stimulation and make a goal this year to find a new hobby — maybe playing a sport or learning an instrument — and see it all the way through to perfecting it. With Aries impatience, this may be difficult, but it’ll be worth the satisfaction when you accomplish it.

TAURUS

taurus

While you’re extremely strong and committed, this often can lead to stubbornness. In 2021, pick your battles. While your passion is admirable, sometimes compromise is necessary. Alleviate some stress by figuring out what is worth fighting for and what could be easily settled with mutual understanding.

GEMINI

gemini

A Gemini is known to be passionate but indecisive, and you tend to divide your focus among the variety of tasks you want to accomplish. This year, go easy on yourself! There’s no need to take on too many projects at once and get overwhelmed. Harness that passion towards something you really want, and work on that first.

CANCER

cancer

People often rely on their Cancer friends for help with a problem since Cancers are incredibly empathetic. In 2021, don’t be afraid to ask for help yourself. It’s great that you love being there for others, but let others be there for you too every once in a while.

LEO

leo

Leos have amazing confidence and bring a powerful presence to any room. In the new year, use that Leo energy toward a cause you feel passionate about. Plus, after the debacle of 2020, it would be a great time to get involved in your community and use your strong voice to make a change you’d like to see.

VIRGO

virgo

Virgos are incredibly organized and responsible, which are wonderful traits to have. But in 2021, in between scheduling and making to-do lists, remember to set aside at least a little bit of time each day to relax. It might be a challenge, but try not to sweat the small stuff, and instead put that energy toward some well-deserved self-care.

LIBRA

libra

As a Libra, you’re constantly seeking balance, but you hate change and are prone to analysis paralysis. To help with that Libran indecision, get into the habit of making pros and cons lists. It’s a great way to put your natural skills in logic to good use, and can help you feel more confident about your choices.

SCORPIO

scorpio

As one of the most emotional signs, you can sometimes let your feelings get the best of you in the forms of jealousy and secrecy. In the new year, make sure your friends and family know that you care about them. Whether it’s a trip, a gift, or quality time, go out of your way to show your loved ones how much they mean to you.

SAGITTARIUS

sagitarious

Being the most adventurous sign, a Sagittarius longs for freedom and exploration. Feed that restlessness by taking a trip this year to somewhere you’ve never been. Maybe it’s somewhere on another continent, or maybe it’s just the next town over, but find a place you’ve always wanted to check out to satisfy your constant wanderlust.

CAPRICORN

capricorn

Capricorns are disciplined and responsible, which makes you among the most reliable signs. In 2021, feel free to try something spontaneous! The best memories can be made from something unplanned, which might sound crazy to you. But if the opportunity to seize the moment presents itself, take it and you won’t regret it.

AQUARIUS

New Year’s Resolution

While you love helping others, you rarely express your own emotions. This year, try to open up a little by keeping a journal. Jotting down some thoughts from time to time could be cathartic for the feelings you tend to keep to yourself, and might be the first step in having an easier time relaying your emotions to others.

PISCES

New Year’s Resolution

The last New Year’s Resolution is for Pisces, They are among the most artistic signs. Is there an art project you’ve always dreamed of working on — maybe a painting, a short film, or an album? Make 2021 the year you make that dream a reality. You can tend to have your head in the clouds, but why not bring your fantasies to life through your art?

What do you think? Do you already have your resolutions all figured out for 2021?
