The year is only beginning, but that doesn’t mean that it’s gone smoothly. A few days is more than enough time for everything to crumble around you — or, at least, for it to feel like that’s the case. Here are some zodiacs who are already having a tough time navigating the new year:
Aries, you’ve been trying to stay hopeful moving into this new year, but it’s hard when your goals feel so far out of your reach. When you’ve been wondering whether success is actually in your future or is only a pipe dream. The new year is typically a time to work toward your biggest dreams, but you’ve been working toward them for a while. Honestly, you’re not sure how much you can change in the new year. It feels impossible to do more because you’ve already been working your hardest. You’ve already been putting in your full effort. You’ve been stressed out because you spent the last year challenging yourself and it hasn’t paid off yet. You’re worried this year won’t pay off either. You’re worried it’s bound to end the same.
You’re a dreamer, so you always raise your expectations a little too high around this time of year. You come up with a million things that you want to do, goals you hope to accomplish, and milestones you want to hit — and you are already behind on some of them. But you shouldn’t feel so disappointed in yourself so early in the new year. You still have plenty of time to pursue your goals. You don’t need every single day to be a productive one. You’re allowed to have some restful days too. Some lazy days. Some recharge days. If you push yourself too hard, it will backfire anyway. You need to give yourself some grace.
Scorpio, you’re naturally a pessimist, so it hasn’t helped that the first few days of this new year have gone horribly wrong. You’re worried that this is setting the course for the entire year — but that’s not true. It’s impossible to have a year filled with entirely good days. There are bound to be some bad ones. Maybe you’re getting the worst out of the way. Or maybe there’s more stress in your future. Either way, your reaction to these tough times is incredibly important. Remember, half of what happens to you is out of your control, but the other half has to do with your reaction. If small things are going wrong, don’t act like it’s the end of the world. And when big things go wrong, remember you’ll get through it. You always do.
Pisces, you get overwhelmed easily. You allow little things to bother you and stay on your mind all day. Maybe even for multiple days. But you need to remember that you have worth. You are valuable. If others can’t see that, it’s their problem. Don’t concern yourself with outside opinions. Even though you’re naturally a people-pleaser, you need to spend this year focusing on yourself more than others. It’s not selfish. It’s self-love.
