The stars want you to stop it!

You’re ruining your life. Maybe it’s only in a way that’s small and won’t do that much damage. Then again, it might be in a huge way that will take a lot of work to stop it from destroying everything.

It might be that a change of perspective is all that’s needed to get you back on the right track. You’re focusing on things that ultimately won’t bring you happiness and won’t better your life.

Are you pursuing the wrong kind of guy? You think that you don’t want a relationship with any strings so you’re going after the dangerous guy, but inside you know that what you really want is someone you can trust and depend on.

You’re wasting too much time and energy on a guy who probably is going to hurt you and leave you alone. You need to pay less attention to what your lust says and listen to what your mind says.

You might feel that you’ve made so many mistakes that you’ll never have the kind of life you want anyway, but that’s not true. You can change your life, you can change who you think you are, and you can change your outlook.

Do you have a positive outlook on your life? If all you do is think of the negative and plan for the worst, that’s the kind of dark energy you’re going to bring into your life. If you focus on your failures, mistakes, and flaws, it will affect everything that happens in your life.

 

You need to accept yourself and see how incredible you are. When you love and believe in yourself, it’s amazing the good things that will happen in your life. Astrology can see that you need a shift in your perspective.

This is how you ruin your life, based on your zodiac sign.

 

 

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You're always looking forward (which is great) but you never appreciate the here and now. The boring and routine moments in your life can be satisfying and happy if you only take a minute to enjoy them. Be in the now and be present; this will enhance your perspective and allow you to fully enjoy the moment.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You're too rigid and you don't ever deviate from the path you've set for yourself. By closing yourself off to the possibilities of life, you miss out on so many opportunities and adventures. If you do the same things repeatedly, in the same way, you'll not only get bored, you'll stagnate. How can you grow as a person or expand your creativity if you are inflexible and unchanging?

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You have big ideas for major projects and you get pretty far on them... until you lose your momentum and you drop them. Your habit of not finishing what you started is more detrimental to your life than you think. All those projects weigh on you, whether you're aware of it or not. They hold you back from achieving the success that's due. Perhaps instead of taking on huge projects, start small with easily manageable ones, until you work your way up to the gigantic, life-changing ones.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You're too caught up in the past and obsessing over what might have been, especially in terms of relationships. You have it good right now if only you could see it. It's helpful to learn from your mistakes, not to hyper-analyze them. When you go over every action, every emotion and everything said from the past, you get stuck there and are immobilized. Sometimes you need to let it go and move on, even if you think you have more to learn from that relationship you had that went South in high school.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You've been pursuing the same dreams since you were a small child and have never revisited them or adapted them in any way. You're not the same person that you were and it may be time to adapt those dreams to something that's more suitable to who you are now. You will have to be honest with yourself about your strengths, weaknesses, talents, and abilities, but when you see what you really should be aiming for, it will feel better when you achieve them.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You're ruining your life by hanging on to the toxic people in your life. So what if you were best friends with that person when you were kids? They aren't nice to you now and are always trying to bring you down. Not every relationship is destined to be forever; sometimes people are only in your life for a short time. When you hang on to people who don't have your best interests at heart or who may resent you, you allow them to chip away at your self-esteem. Cut the losers from your life and you'll be amazed at how much better you feel.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You challenge your decisions too much. It's a process for you to decide anything but even after the decisions been made, you lament your choice. Why did you order a hamburger when your partner's spaghetti looks much more delicious? Or, was it a good idea to send your resume to that new company? What if they don't hire you? Sometimes you just need to make a decision and stand by it without being so ambivalent about it.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You're ruining your life by hanging on to grudges, slights, and feelings of revenge. It's all so negative and while it may seem like it sometimes, people aren't out to get you. You have a lot of focus and energy, so if you direct it at something, especially something negative, it burns like a fire and destroys everything in its path. You can't move forward if you're too caught up in payback. Forgive and forget and you'll be getting out of your own way.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Your need for instant gratification is a problem. If you don't get what you want right away, you'll just forget it or take off to parts unknown. You don't have much patience and it's challenging for you to see the big picture. You need to put things into perspective and remember "good things come to those who wait" even if the waiting takes longer than a nanosecond. You have to put in the time for the things you want.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You tend to put work above relationships, which is a troubling characteristic. It's great when you have all the success and money you want but what happens when you don't have anyone to appreciate it with? You tend to be a workaholic with your eyes so firmly set on the prize that you miss some of the more important things in life. Get your priorities in order and realize that you need a life of balance, not one where you're overworked and alone.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You put too much stock in your independence. You like to believe that you don't need to be accountable to anyone but yourself. However, you get lonely, and you're someone who genuinely loves to be around people. You're not weak if you allow yourself to need someone or to be vulnerable with them; in fact, it actually makes you strong.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You tend to make some bad decisions where your life is concerned. You trust the wrong people, you don't get all the facts when making an important decision, and you can be highly irresponsible. You need to grow up a little bit. You can't live your life the way you did when you were a child when instead of doing what you were supposed to do, you just locked yourself up in your room and worked on your art. You need to be fully aware of where you're at now and act responsibly.
