how to fall in love
Love, Zodiac

It's so simple.

With every new year, new month, and new day comes a new beginning. We are never without a chance to start again and do things differently. With the new year upon us, many people reflect on their lives and how they want to change things, even if it’s just their outlook.


Life is a precious gift, but sometimes it’s so challenging that it can seem more like a pain than a pleasure — and that’s when we need to do whatever we can to change our perspective and try to fall back in love with our lives.

It’s a cliché but we really do only have one life and we must make the most of it. If you can’t appreciate every single moment, then you have to have as many wonderful moments as you can.

We all must strive to enjoy and savor the time we have on this earth, and self-acceptance is key when it comes to having a fulfilling life. If you obsess about everything you don’t have or feel as if your life is cursed, you’re going to have to start at the bottom and throw out your negativity regarding yourself and your life, making peace with your weaknesses and flaws.

People enrich our lives if we let them. Putting up emotional walls and rejecting people doesn’t equal a happy life; it equals loneliness and emotional solitude. When we share open communication with people, we feel better not only about ourselves but life itself.

Gratitude is another force that adds to one’s happiness of their life. When you're grateful for what you have, your heart will become open and you’ll have the ability to get happiness from small joys.


How can you restart your mindset and learn how to fall in love with your life again? Astrology knows, so here is what you need to do, based on your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You jump from one thing to the next, constantly moving and doing. The best thing you can do for yourself is to take a moment to appreciate and savor what you're doing and all the good that's in your life. When you're always rushing around, you can miss the small details that make your life so rich. If you take the time to be present for your own life, you'll be thankful for everything you have.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Try something that makes you uncomfortable. You tend to stick with what you know and stay close to home, so if you do something that's outside the box, you'll expand your word and expand your life. If there's something that you have described as "something you'd never do," do it. When you do something that you'd normally avoid, you're taking the power away from it and giving it back to yourself.

You know that invisible list you have all the things you want to do or things you started but never finished? Make a point to start doing them. Everything you take off that list will empower you and when you complete something that's been hanging over your head, you'll begin to feel a powerful sense of freedom. If you start thinking of yourself as someone who tries new things and finishes what they start, you'll gain a new respect for yourself.

You tend to retreat to home when you get stressed, so make sure it's an oasis not a source of stress. Too many things and not enough light in a house can weigh you down. Get rid of your excess crap and pare down so that the possessions you really love will be featured. Since your space reflects you, make it a beautiful and calm space.

You're so used to getting the attention and things that you need that you've stopped truly appreciating everything you have. Make a plan to be on the lookout for things that you can be thankful for. By searching for gratitude, you'll be much more appreciative of the bounty that you already have in your life and you'll notice how exceedingly lucky you are. When you're grateful, you'll start to be grounded in the here and now.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You spend a lot of time trying to be perfect and then beating yourself up emotionally when your imperfections show themselves, and the cycle continues. The best thing you can do is to make peace with the fact that you'll never be perfect and that's OK. Perfect is boring and useless, and that's so not you. If you can grasp that no one is perfect, you'll be less critical of yourself and others, which will allow you to love yourself.

The best advice for you is to slow down and savor the little things: the great cup of coffee, the beach at sunset, the softness of your cat's fur, and the smell of freshly laundered sheets. Our lives are made up of many of these small moments and when you allow yourself to enjoy them, you'll find that when you have a lot of small moments of happiness, you'll start to focus more on the positive aspects of your life.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)

You can go from zero to a hundred in intensity, so the best thing that you can do for yourself is to try to not sweat the little stuff. Not everything is the cause for high drama. If someone takes your parking space at the mall, don't whip yourself up into a frenzy. Get rid of grudges, perceived slights, and plans for revenge. Stop taking everything as a sign of disrespect; you'll be happier, less stressed out, and healthier.

You're a fun person and you love to laugh and make others laugh — light entertainment is fine by you. However, sometimes you need to go deeper. Try reading something that's substantial and will challenge and excite that big brain of yours. When you expand the mind, you free the soul and you grow. Growth and learning are extremely important in order for you to stay excited about your life.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Since you're always working and doing for others, the best thing you can do is to take some time for yourself. Go on a vacation or just take the time off work and have a staycation. You need to decompress and relax. Limit the time you spend on the phone so that you can focus on doing fun things for yourself. All work and no play make you cranky with others... and with yourself.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You're one of the most independent signs there is and you have a tendency to shy away from getting help when you need it. Asking for help doesn't make you weak; in fact, it's a sign of strength. When you ask for assistance, you're willing to admit that you aren't able to do everything on your own and that's a good thing. Sometimes you need to accept the help from wherever it's offered.

Stop cutting yourself down just because you think it will make other people like you more. The more you cut yourself down, the more you're going to believe those words. Put yourself and your self-esteem first. You don't need to change into someone who's full of themselves. Having confidence in yourself and your abilities and staying positive will help you to feel better about yourself and have an overall happier outlook on your life.
