what you need to succeed
Zodiac, Self

This is essential for your happiness.

You could have everything falling into place for a successful life and still not be happy.

There are some things that are essential to our lives that we may not be aware of. Sure, we need good health, a job, a purpose, friends, and love but if we don’t have that certain thing that’s unique to us, we’ll never be happy.

These things that make us feel as if our lives are complete can be simple. Perhaps we just need to be able to acknowledge and feel grateful for them or maybe we need constant adoration and praise.

Does that mean that something more complicated and harder to achieve is better? No, sometimes the easiest changes that we need to make are the most difficult to accomplish.

Sometimes knowing just what it is that you need to be happy can help you to decide important life-altering questions like career or if you want to get married. If you do what to get married, you need to know if you want children because you wouldn't want to get involved with someone that wants to remain childless if being a parent is one of your biggest dreams.

The zodiac signs we are born under can have much to do with the things we need in our lives. What a Gemini needs is far different than what a Scorpio needs. Most of the things that we want and/or believe that we need will change throughout our lives. What is most important to you at age 10 might not be as important to you at age 40, though you never know.

It’s helpful to know what you should be doing in order to have the life you’ve dreamed of so you can take the steps necessary to achieve it. Here’s what you need to succeed, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You need to own your successes and build from there. You're always meeting challenges and surpassing them but you tend to keep them quiet. You don't need to be obnoxious, but let others know how you're killing it. Everyone wants to be around successful people and you never know who may be able to help you get to the next level.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You need to make yourself get out of your comfort zone from time to time. When you get comfortable, you tend to want to keep it that way. But if you never take chances and do things that are a little scary for you, you won't grow and you'll stagnate. If you've had the same job for a while, it's time to ask about another position in the company or ask for a job review so that you can get a salary increase.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You need to keep stimulated, so now is the time to take a class or join a meet-up where you can meet new people and possibly start an activity that you've always wanted to try. Learning is good for your growth and you need to activate your curiosity. It doesn't have to be physical; you can even start therapy so what's stimulating your brain is learning about yourself.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You need to change your appearance. It's possible that you're still upset about something (or someone) from the recent past. What better way to distance yourself than a whole new look? Get a haircut, dye your hair some vibrant colors, and paint your nails a color that you normally wouldn't associate with yourself. You'll be surprised at how rejuvenated and refreshed you'll feel with a makeover.

You need to do something creative that will help put you back in the spotlight. You love being the center of attention; in fact, some say that you bloom when you've got the focus of everyone in the room. Perhaps you can do some stand-up comedy or spoken word, or even write and perform a one-person show. You need to have all eyes on you.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You tend to get very anal and rigid, so the best thing for you to do is to make a mistake. Loosen up and mess up and you'll see that the sky won't fall and that life will continue as always. Being responsible for everything that happens all the time is too much for anyone, and sometimes you just need to release control and hope that it works out for the best.

You need to have your home life in harmonious order. If you know after a challenging day at work that you can go home to the sanctuary that is your house, you'll be better able to face every challenge. If your home is peaceful, you'll be better able to fight for the things and projects you believe in when you're out in the world.

You need to lighten up. Try to allow yourself to be silly or to look foolish. If you can see the humor in life, everything won't seem quite so dire. You have a sense of humor, you need to be able to access the funny easier and more often.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You're a very optimistic person and perhaps a little naive. You need to develop a more realistic view of the world — not necessarily more pessimistic but you need to be aware of some of the dangers so you don't get hurt. It's being smart to not flash a bunch of money around when you're traveling or to tell someone where you're going when you're off to meet a new friend from a dating app.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You don't always have to take the lead, but it's okay for you to follow sometimes too. You're a natural born leader but that can be exhausting when you're always expected to set an example. You can learn some important lessons when you take the time to listen to what someone else has to say.

You need to travel more. It's good for you to see how people live in different countries and get perspective on your own life. Traveling will help to inspire you to create things you would never have thought of by just staying at home all the time.

You need to help people. Do some volunteer work for a local charity or join the fight of a political cause. You feel much better when you're doing something for the good of the earth and its inhabitants. Now, doing for others doesn't mean to completely ignore your own needs. You need to make sure that you're still on the list.
