How to Accomplish Your 2018 Resolutions Based on Your Zodiac Sign

With 2017 firmly in the rearview mirror, we move into the New Year ready to clear out stagnant energy from our past. To do this, we must allow more room for good energy and opportunities to come into our life by giving ourselves a bit more room to breathe (a little more self-care, a little less stress).

You probably have a long list of goals that you want to achieve within this year. Whether they are personal goals, professional objectives, or more general resolutions to focus on throughout the year, it can sometimes be difficult to know where to begin!
 

Your zodiac sign holds the secrets you need to achieve your 2018 resolutions

 
Interestingly enough, your zodiac sign might actually hold the secrets you need to achieve those big 2018 goals.
 
In fact, there are certain methods of organization and specific workflow systems that are most compatible to your zodiac sign. Trying the specific types of organization that work best with your zodiac could hold the secrets you need to increase your productivity for the year.
 

Learn more about how to attack your goals based specifically on your zodiac sign here:

 

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You enjoy structure and a highly fixed schedule. Separation of work and play and organizing your day effectively is what’s most important to help you achieve your goals in the New Year.
 
In fact, to help yourself productively work towards your resolutions, consider using a daily, hour-by-hour calendar to show yourself that you can get it all done.
 
When tasks come up, especially if they feel overwhelming, write everything down across the week so that you know exactly when you’re going to cross everything off of your to-do list. Also, know that you will typically have difficulty working from home, because it will start to make your home feel like a second office in your mind.
 
If you need to complete work-related tasks over the weekend or outside typical working hours, consider going to a coffee shop or actually heading into the office. This will allow your home to remain a relaxing, comfortable solace for your off hours.
 
 

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You are a big picture thinker and have no problem setting BIG goals for the year. However, where you may struggle a bit is creating a logical roadmap to achieve those goals throughout the year.
 
Since we’re at the very beginning of 2018, now is the ideal time to sit down and structure your goals. What small steps do you need to take in the upcoming days, weeks and months to make your 2018 resolutions a reality?
 
While you’re thinking longer term, consider prioritizing your goals, too. What are your big plans leading you towards that will help you accomplish your longer-term goals? Prioritize and work toward what’s most relevant to your core purpose so you can emerge from 2018 feeling accomplished and fulfilled.
 
 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You’re the dreamer of the zodiac, and those dreams that others may think are irrelevant are actually pointing towards your big-scheme goals.
 
Dreaming bigger than others in the zodiac can often lead to inspired results . . . as long as you stay on task and get things done. The one problem with being the big dreamer is that it’s often difficult for you to stay on task, and you frequently procrastinate.
 
The best tactic to help you reach your goals for the year is to get comfortable with tackling your most difficult tasks first. Once you organize your day, be sure to cross off your most time-consuming tasks before moving on (or at least the tasks that you want to do least) so you can focus the rest of your day on what you enjoy.
 
 

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

There are two important elements of an Aries personality that are important to keep in mind when moving towards goals for the year: personal benefit and the follow through.
 
If an Aries is working towards a goal, they want to understand how they’re personally going to benefit. Consistently remind yourself of what it is that you’re working towards. Is it financial gain, closer relationships with family, or finally opening that business you’ve always wanted to start? Write it down and regularly remind yourself to help you to maintain your momentum.
 
The follow through can be a challenge for this portion of the zodiac. Take this time in the year to set smaller incremental goals so that you’re consistently making progress.
 
 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Most Taurus’s are fairly self-motivated and enjoy staying on task. But there is one snag that can halt your progress: Taurus can get thrown off task fairly quickly if something doesn’t go as planned.
 
In planning the next year, or your next step in moving towards your goal, consider a strategy like the “Big Three.” In this method of prioritization, you write down the three tasks that you must complete the following day to stay on your forward trajectory.
 
This strategy will allow you to stay committed to your tasks, while also knowing that you’re consistently moving forward, even if something unexpected crosses your path throughout the day.
 
 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Geminis typically tend to be more chatty and social. They do a great job staying on task and staying committed to their goals, especially if it’s a goal that was handed to them from an external source.
 
Geminis do some of their best work in team settings. Consider getting others involved in your goals. Find a workout partner. Make your volunteer efforts more social by bringing a few friends.
 
Breathe life into your resolutions by talking about them with your friends and family so that they can help to hold you accountable – this is how the social butterfly Gemini thrives in accomplishing their goals and enjoying the process along the way.
 

 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

While some signs need a separate office setting in order to be successful, this is not the case for most Cancers. Instead, Cancers tend to be most successful when they are able to be more self-driven with their goals and how they plan to achieve them.
 
Incredibly independent, Cancers will be more motivated when their goals can be flexible in the way they are achieved. For example, if working out regularly is your 2018 resolution, be flexible about when you go and what you’ll do for your workout instead of following a strict schedule.
 
Having the flexibility to adjust the interim strategies that move you towards your goal will help you feel like you can breathe while staying on track.
 
 

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos love to receive recognition for their work. If you’re a Leo, you likely also love structure and prefer to set goals so that you can achieve them and move onto the next “level.”
 
While setting interim goals that lead up to your big objective for the year is important to you, it’s important to stick with timed goals when possible. What do you want to achieve in the next 30 days that leads you towards your big, strategic goal for the year? What routine can you set in place to help you consistently progress?
 
You’re typically good at staying on task and on track, but make sure you take time to celebrate your successes along the way. Acknowledging all your progress and hard work will keep you motivated to continue working on your goals throughout the year.
 
 

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Your detail-oriented nature makes you a whiz at staying organized and on track, but it may also limit your big picture thinking. Don’t let this hold you back!
 
Instead, take this early part of the year to set your big picture goals. Set aside an hour or two now to think through where you want to be one year from now. What is that big goal (or goals) that you can set now to build momentum towards that end objective?
 
Stay on track and focused on that target, but be aware of your tendency towards perfectionism. While your drive helps you perform well, try not to let perfectionism turn into a form of procrastination. Consider when the details can be “good enough” instead of “perfect” so that your progress isn’t stunted.
 
 

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You are naturally a visual learner. While you appreciate and welcome journaling and setting more traditional goals for the year, a vision board may be more your style. What do you want your year to embody? What do you want your life to look like one year from now?
 
Since Libras favor beauty and symmetry, setting your goals for the year should feel like creating a painting. All of the details might not make sense at first, but they come together to create a beautiful portrait of your life.
 
Also, make sure that you’re prioritizing those goals and steps that will actually propel you forward. Use your vision board as a reminder of where your hard work is leading you so you stay motivated to keep moving forward.
 
 

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You are the task-master of the zodiac. Focused and driven, you rarely have difficulty staying on track and rarely need to remind yourself of why you’re doing the hard work. But there are still ways you can motivate yourself to keep pushing to the next level.
 
For one, you are competitive by nature, both against yourself and others. Consider getting others involved in a friendly competition, or giving yourself small challenges to complete. It will keep you interested, involved, and motivated each day.
 
Additionally, you tend to get distracted by clutter, which includes the mental clutter caused by overwhelming email inboxes or social media distractions. Carve out an hour or two each week to turn off the email notifications and put away your phone so you can focus solely on working towards your goal free of distractions.
 
 

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You are creative, Sagittarius – and that’s putting it lightly! You greatly excel at dreaming big dreams and creating imaginative solutions.
 
But where you shine at big picture thinking, you may also have a tendency to skip the details that are necessary to get the job done. But in reality, those details are important, too! Try dividing your goal into smaller, bite-sized pieces to help you gauge your progress.
 
Write your resolutions down in a way that most appeals to you – whether that’s a vision board, a bubble chart or bullet point list. Next to each resolution, write down the details of each step that you need to accomplish so nothing is overlooked and you feel organized to dream big – but also follow through.
 

Use Your Zodiac Sign to Accomplish Your Resolutions For 2018

No matter what your zodiac sign is, to make sure that you’re staying on track and are able to follow through on your resolutions by the end of the year, time management will be key.
 
Getting familiar with the inherent tendencies of your zodiac sign will empower you to take the action you need to make those resolutions a reality – and enjoy the process along the way.
