It’s that time of the year again. New Year’s resolutions are being made (no matter how young they’d die in the new year) and for no better reason than FOMO, thousands are waiting to draw a GOOD list of new year’s resolutions. Of course, how that goes down is a different story altogether but as of now, New Year resolutions are the thing. Issued in the interest of the poor, helpless souls who forget just what their New Year resolutions were after downing one too many at the new year bash, here’s a handy list, based on zodiac:
Please note: For those of you who CAN take this seriously, this can practically change your life in the New Year!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You are an impulsive bee and could do with a li’l slowing down in the coming year. Don’t get us wrong- we love your infectious energy and the zappy zest to get things done. But taking things down a notch or two just so you don’t dive headlong into deep waters and can take the time to assess risks and arrange for a floater could hold you in good stead. Give yourself the time to take a step back, rein in your pragmatic side and allow it to administer a healthy dose of balance to your adventurous spirit. You will be surprised with the way it turns your decisions better than ever before.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
What you need this year, dear Taurus, is to allow people to break into the fortress you’ve held for so long. We don’t mean you should allow people to siege your territory- just lower the drawbridge and let them enter. We know you are a meticulous, hard-working, independent soul who can handle everything on his own. But just because you can does not necessarily mean you should. Accept that not all people are out to take advantage of your vulnerability and that a few of them really care. If you can begin to just accept that and work around matters of your heart, your heart shall be smiling in no time.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
For a long time, you have been focused on what people around wanted from you. This new year, vow to change that. It is time you learnt to start saying no, focus on yourself and allow yourself to be. You should stop listening to what people say or want and listen to your innermost desires. Pay heed on what those little voices inside you are saying and you shall kick yourself for not listening in on them sooner. After the kick, however, kick start your plans to go after what you really want, and aggressively so!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
This new year, vow to own your choices. Not every choice you make is the right one- and all choices have their consequences. Take the time to own your choices and the consequences it bears- and allow for them to pour in lessons that you could benefit from making a note of. Every right choice is a step forward and every wrong one is a lesson that can enable growth. Keep moving forward, with all of it in tow.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Your new year’s resolution should be to stop the incessant comparison to others. Your life is good as it is and you must not allow a few clicks or swipes to change that. Everything you see on social media is a filtered version of life and only puts up the strained, clear version on display. Your real life is far removed from that virtual stream and perhaps, as close to their own real lives that are hidden from the purview of social media. So, stop with the needless comparison already and count your blessings.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)
You need to stop with the over thinking drill. This year, grab the wheel, take control and speed up. If you remain in the backseat, wondering if you can ever take the front seat and fire up the engine, you’d remain seated in the back forever. So, if you have something on your to-do list, just take charge and go for it, full-throttle. Wracking your brains for it and putting those poor cells in hyperdrive isn’t doing them or you much good anyway!
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)
This is the year when you go after your dreams, without thinking about the roadblocks. You have the power to kick all obstacles to the curb, if only you give in to the strength of your determination. Do not let anything hold you back- for only an unyielding chase is going to get you where you have always wanted to be.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
This year is all about toning down your goals. Try not to set yourself up for unrealistic or immensely challenging standards because more often than not, even though you know you are trying to prove your mettle and aiming for bigger and better (one step at a time), you tend to play hopscotch across quarters and jump a square or two to get ahead faster. That means you are prone to biting off more than you can chew and that would only set you up for failure and consequent disappointment. So, go ahead and set yourself some challenges but take them on with a realistic assessment of your abilities. You don’t want to beat yourself up for going wrong- so do the darned thing right and enjoy yourself while you are at it.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
This new year, give yourself room to relax. You need to stop fretting over trivial, insignificant details and realize that life is going to set its own pace, come what may. You just need to trust you are going to tune in your frequency and be alright.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
This new year, work on yourself. Remember that money and material things only last so long. Human connections are the real treasure of life and they are priceless. Forge connections that make life worth living and oust that ceaseless drive to pile on things that are temporal and won’t last.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
This year is all about allowing life to be about others. Take off the focus from you and realize that just because you’ve got things hard does not mean it’s a piece of cake for everybody else out there. Everyone’s got their own sh*t to deal with and it is only when the sh*t hits the fan that you get to see who’s willing to stick through the stink. If you have expected people to be there for you all through, maybe this new year is the time you returned the favor. Show them you care. Be there.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
This new year, face one of your fears. Pick any and conquer it, so that it can invest a sense of belief and confidence in you. Your fears are only as strong as you allow them to be- and this year is exactly the time when you should prove that you are stronger. Pick up arms and send the bugger bloody!
