The Risk Your Zodiac Sign Should Take Before Your Chances To Try Something New Runs Out

The Risk Your Zodiac Sign Should Take Before Your Chance Runs Out
Zodiac, Self

Risky business.

Taking chances, going and taking a risk that you thought you'd never do while getting out of your comfort zone is scary.

Life is made up new experiences. Sure it's easy to stay in your comfort zone, its comfortable!

But what some people may not fully get is that being uncomfortable can sometimes be a good thing. You may learn something or get to have an amazing opportunity come your way.

We all have some strengths and weaknesses in our lives regardless of what zodiac sign you're born with.

It's tough sometimes to not let all that negative self-talk hold us back from some things that we are afraid of.  But we often forget that being afraid of something doesn't mean you can't do it.

The very definition of courage is being afraid of something but doing it anyway. 

Do you think all of the men and women you look up to today lived their whole lives without fear? That's just not true. ANYONE who has done something amazing was probably terrified.

But they did it anyway. That's all taking a risk is when you have finally mustered up all that courage. It's not some magic potion that some people are just lucky enough to get or a specific planetary life path that you're horoscope is guided by.

Taking chances and risks in life doesn't always pay off, let's be honest. But that doesn't mean that the failures in life are invaluable. They teach us a lesson each time and make us grow. Not taking chances and risks is what truly hurts us in life. 

What should your zodiac sign do to take a risk, according to astrology? There's some inspiration below, but it's up to you! Even though it's not National Take A Chance Day, every day is an opportunity to take some chances and grow as a person.

So get out there and be brave! 

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The risk to take: Take a backseat.

Let's face it, Aries, you are a bit of a control freak. You like taking charge and do not want anyone else's input. Your favorite quote is "my way or the highway". That's okay when it comes to getting certain projects done.

There is a need for people who want to take charge. But every single day does not have to be like that. Take a chance to not have total control of your life.

You'd be surprised to see just how things can fall into place. Chill and just let fate bring you to where you need to be. I promise it'll be okay.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

The risk to take: Let go and forgive. 

Taurus you know you can hold grudges. It is in your nature to not let things go quite as easily as everyone else. Your stubbornness, of course, isn't all bad, it leads you to work hard and succeed in life. But you can ease it up a little.

Forgiving and forgetting is a lot healthier than holding on to past wounds of any kind. Try writing things down on a piece of paper that bother you and crumple them up.

They are now over and done with. As for people you may have vendettas with, forgive them. You don't have to be best friends with everyone but forgiving feels way better than holding on to negativity.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

The risk to take: Make a change.

One thing that Geminis are is indecisive, and you know it. Change is not easy for you, you are comfortable with comfort and don't see a need for anything to be different.

The problem with that is without change there can be no growth.

Take a chance and make a big change. It doesn't matter what it is. Dye your hair, finally quit that job you hate, take a risk and try an activity that is completely new and scary to you.

Just do it Geminis! You know change is not easy but you are tough enough to handle it. You'll realize one day that the hard changes in your life were probably the most beneficial.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

The risk to take: Ask for what you want. 

Cancers are givers and some of the most selfless people out there. There is nothing wrong with that! You truly care and that is noble. However what can sometimes turn your selflessness into a problem is when you lose yourself in the process.

Doing so much for others takes up all the time and energy you need to take care of yourself. You feel selfish if you ask for something you want. Guess what, nothing bad will happen if you do. Take a chance and don't be everyone's everything all the time.

You want to take a vacation but you've got some other commitments, do it anyway. You want your spouse to spend more time helping out around the house, tell them. You can do it Cancers, the world will not end.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

The risk to take: Make a mistake. 

What? Why would I ever make a mistake? All you Leos out there are probably shaking your head at this advice. But this advice isn't meant for you to go out and make a huge mistake that will alter your life in a bad way.

It simply means to put your ego aside and not have everything be so perfect all the time.  Sometimes you can be a little inflated and caught up in yourself. Hey, your confidence is awesome and it makes you someone who can't be broken down.

That is truly a desirable trait. But having that much pressure on yourself can make you super insecure if your ego is bruised. But mistakes happen, we are human and that doesn't make you any less special. Cheat on your diet for a meal, wear sweats out of the house, don't win the trivia night with your friends just have fun instead. Be perfectly imperfect for once.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

The risk to take: Tell someone how you really feel. 

Virgos you are some tough cookies. You cannot be cracked, and although that may seem like a strength it can also be detrimental. If you never want to seem vulnerable then how are you ever going to get over any hurt in your life?

Bottling things up all the time may seem like your only option but it certainly isn't. You don't need to be strong 100 percent of the time or put on an act that you can handle everything. When there is something wrong tell someone, or if there are things that have been left unsaid say them, today.

You will not morph into some weakling who cannot handle anything. You will still be you, the strong, tough, hard worker that is an unstoppable force. You'll just be a little lighter because you are not carrying so much baggage.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

The risk to take: Isolate yourself. 

Libras you know you are social butterflies. Being the life of party is so much fun! Nothing wrong with that, people are drawn to you and you should be proud of who you are. The fun bus never stops when you're around and that is a great way to live your life.

But the fun can sometimes be a little consuming. You do get FOMO and you don't like to be not included. But here's the thing, you can have just as much fun with yourself as you do with other people. Turn your phone off and see if the world explodes... it probably won't.

Do whatever you want to do and don't feel the need to entertain. Meditate, go get a massage, watch a movie, bake a cake. Do it all by yourself and realize just how amazing you are even when you're not the center of attention.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

The risk to take: Be yourself completely. 

Scorpios are spit-fires and passionate. You know you are in touch with your feelings. But you are so afraid of rejection at times that you might not always show every part of your true self.

Why do you need to hide?

If people don't like you, they don't like you. You don't need anyone's approval at all. Just your own. You can be confident when you want to be but the complete opposite at other times.

Take some time to reflect and go back to the core of your being. You know deep down that you are amazing and special. Just let that shine and if anyone has a problem with you it's their own problem, not yours.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

The risk to take: Deal with it. 

Sagittarius are free spirits and hard to keep under wraps. That is an amazing way to live life and it opens up a lot of doors for you at times. However the fear of being held back of boxed in can make you run at the first sign of trouble.

When I say deal with it something or someone may pop up into your mind. Unresolved issues that you chose to ignore are still there. Deal with it, whatever it is. It is a little scary but you don't let fear hold you back from other things.

Tying up loose ends will help you so much in life even if it's extremely uncomfortable to you. You can handle the tough stuff in life Sagittarius, you are stronger than anything in your way.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

The risk to take: Be spontaneous.

As a Capricorn you are reliable and by the book. Every I is dotted and every T crossed. The work ethic you have is envied by others big time. But you probably envy the spontaneity of others as well. It is tough for you to comprehend not doing what you are supposed to do.

Playing hooky at school seemed like an urban legend and going off script was a no-no. But being spontaneous in life can sometimes make you feel more alive than anything else. If you go off schedule for a day or two will the world stop turning? Nope.

Have some fun, go crazy! Go take a drive to the beach and jump in the ocean, go to the train station and hop on to the next town and explore. Schedules are forgettable, new experiences will be with you forever.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

The risk to take: Don't take yourself so seriously. 

As an Aquarius, you are highly intelligent and innovative. You can achieve and do amazing things with your life and you know it. However, you may forget to stop and smell the roses. You can get caught up with too many things at once and feel like you need to take charge and be this big leader.

Relax, not everything has to be handled right now. You want to change the world but taking a night off will not throw you off track. You don't have to be the smartest person in the room to be smart.

Taking yourself a little less seriously will reap benefits you didn't even think about. Take a day to be silly, the world will still be there for you to take on tomorrow.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

The risk to take: Break the rules. 

Pisces you are extremely creative and have an outlook on life that many others do not. What a beautiful thing! Being that in touch with others and yourself is extremely beneficial, but you may not realize that it is holding you back.

Following the rules is something you live by because you do not want to mess up any emotional relationships. You are selfless and are always thinking of repercussions. But mistakes happen and breaking the rules isn't always a bad thing.

People forgive. Sure not extreme rules. But little rules that you know deep down will not really hurt anyone. You can do it Pisces, live on the edge!
