Your goal this year involves a training regimen tied to specific results. Something like weight training, learning a new language or instrument that requires dedication, repetition, and a gradual increase in difficulty over an extended period of time. This goal is something you’ve had your eye on for some time, but your availability, budget, and mindset will align this year to make it a reality. Part of sticking to a strict schedule is dedication, but the other half is having the time to allocate to your goal in the first place. Don’t be too harsh on yourself because you feel you are starting too late, or by comparing yourself to others. Really take the time to enjoy each day in the process, and find a fun way to track your progress. Journal, photograph, or record your attempts so you can see improvement along the way. Your hard work will line up with your intentions, and you will have the satisfaction of reaching that goal post before the year’s end.
Your goal involves expanding your comfort zone, Cancer. Whether you want to conquer a fear, or just learn to second guess yourself less when it comes to going after opportunities, reaching out to new people, or throwing your hat into a strange new experience, what seems like a wild chance at the moment will slowly grow to be second nature, and serve as a precedent for taking bigger risks down the road. By the end of this year you will look back on the jitters and stage fright you feel now and laugh. Your confidence will increase, as every situation you find yourself in will have some takeaway you find useful in another, and you will start to piece together the chain of events that you will call progress. This goal doesn’t necessarily have a tangible or measurable quality to it, and that’s okay. It’s about seeing where the journey takes you when you are open to what comes your way.
Scorpio, your current goal is an extension of a previous one. You celebrate the high of achievement and then had to figure out what comes next. Sometimes crossing a finish line can leave us lost or even disappointed at losing a constant motivator we’ve relied upon for so long. This goal may have been as far as you could imagine going, until now. This year is all about taking something to the next level. Education, a job, a relationship. You will discover and hold yourself to an even higher standard, and figure out exactly what steps you need to accomplish to get there. You will need to readjust to that beginner, square one mindset, but remind yourself of all the times you’ve found yourself in this position, and of the amazing things that came from your hard work. You will see the cyclical pattern growth takes for what it is, and commit yourself to fully enjoying the journey.
Your goal this year is an emotional one, Pisces. You may want to increase your confidence, your patience, or your kindness to yourself. You may want to sit longer with the feelings you have and honor them with time to fully process. Allow yourself to celebrate the highs and acknowledge the lows. Instead of fighting your feelings, and trying to level everything out, this year is the time to listen to and respect yourself. You will learn about what is triggering these diverse feelings, and which stimuli are in your control. If travel or exercise makes you happy, you will find a way to make them a more consistent part of your daily life. If certain places, people, or activities bring you down, you will ask yourself if they are serving you in a positive way, or if there is remove to reduce or replace their presence in your life. You will measure this achievement by how much better you know yourself by the end of the year.
