Yes, it’s that time again -- time to check the bad habits of 2012 at the door and resolve to do better in the new year. The theme of total transformation continues in 2013, upping our chances of actually sticking to our New Year’s resolutions this time around. Utilizing our Sun sign’s greatest strengths to transform our inherent weak spots is the best way to harness 2013's powerful star patterns. Read on for a sign-by-sign guide!
Aries: Be patient.
You generate more innovative ideas than Adam, darling. The only problem is the finishing part. You love to burn through things as fast as possible but the good things take time. Commit to cultivating more patience and interest with the slower parts of the process and you can totally change your life.
Taurus: Keep moving and changing.
Staying power is no problem for you. You know the value of waiting it out and seeing things through. The only problem is the getting stuck part. Think about how much time gets lost when you refuse to heed the many alarm bells screaming at you to move on. Refuse to indulge stagnation. Let go and move on -- daily.
Gemini: Focus and commit.
You go through more iterations than even you can keep track of. Perpetually on the go and interested in everything is what keeps you so exciting and young. Yet, you may wonder what it is that you’re actually working on. Use the potent energy of 2013 to narrow your focus and commit to at least one thing for 12 months in a row.
Cancer: Elevate your mood.
Your sensitive and caring ways are the hallmark of what makes you so adorable and irresistible. However, this same sensitivity is responsible for your impressive spectrum of moods. What if you resolved to own your moods with the intention of expressing your feelings creatively rather than defensively against your loved ones?
Leo: Share the limelight.
You’re a natural showstopper, Leo this could inadvertently lead you to hog the spotlight without even realizing it. Use your inherently generous spirit to share the stage of life with others. The less attention you seek for personal gratification, the noble side of your nature shines. Ironically, this leads to even greater recognition in the long haul.
Virgo: Take time outs.
Few work harder or longer hours than you do Virgo, attending to the needs of so many. You cannot resist the call to service and let’s face it, being helpful gives you a high. However, you have a way of totally neglecting your own needs in the process. Resolve to replenish yourself on a daily basis.
Libra: Embrace intensity.
You’re wired towards peace and harmony at any cost. You just love when things flow without the slightest hint of discord. As lovely as this can be, you may lose precious energy trying to keep everything in a constant state of sweetness and light. Rock your scales and let yourself go to extremes in 2013.
Scorpio: Sit still once in a while.
Tumult just might be your middle name, Scorpio. Your passionate nature can often conspire against the part of you that prefers constancy. In your quest to experience the depth and intensity of life you forget the importance of staying with what’s difficult long enough to digest and process your experience.
Sagittarius: Cool your jets.
You’re always happiest living in your future patch of greener grass, Sag. However, you’re realizing how this rips you off from appreciating what you have in the here and now. This doesn’t mean you should pull the plug on all future itineraries, but how about slowing down long enough to enjoy what’s happening in the immediate moment?
Capricorn: Release fear.
The conservative part of your nature makes you one of the most trustworthy and respected companions in the zodiac. However, it's often maddening for you to live with such internal constraint. So much gets bottled up that you tend to lose touch with your need for spontaneous expression. Remember these old, wise words: The only thing to fear is fear itself.
Aquarius: Get mushy
Objectivity is a no brainer for you as you’re able to cut through all of the emotional mush and gush surrounding in one fell sarcastic swoop. Friends and admirers love this about you. Yet, it’s almost as if your own genius cuts you off from the emotional juice of your life. Embrace the messy realm of emotions for a richer experience.
Pisces: Create boundaries.
No doubt about it, you're the bleeding heart of the zodiac. But too much worry for everyone else leaves you drained to your core. Try using saying “no” whenever possible this year, and save that heart of yours for romance and angelic realms where you belong.
