Do you want to be more optimistic and don’t know what to do? We all have problems, the important thing is to learn to see the other side of the glass.
Aries(March 21 – April 20)
Your mantra of optimism: Enjoy the ride!
Aries is not shy at all, everyone knows that. He is really confident in his own strength! He is full of optimism when he starts something, but loses it along the way until it disappears altogether sometimes. To avoid this, Aries should write down all the things that excite him at the start of a new project. That way, he can revisit his most passionate thoughts later when he needs a dose of optimism.
Taurus(April 21 – May 21)
Your mantra of optimism: Let yourself be carried away by the wave!
Taurus doesn’t do well in the cheerful mood department, so they don’t excel when it comes to optimism either. Fortunately, the hardworking and ambitious Taurus never shies away from a challenge. What he must avoid is falling into a pit of prudence. Taurus longs for security and stability, so if their partner ignores a message, they will quickly become suspicious. Instead of thinking of the worst version when faced with the uncertainties of life, another perspective could be extremely useful for him. When faced with a life change, make a list with three columns: best, worst, most likely outcomes. Seeing them written down can help you figure out what your biggest worries are,
Gemini(May 22 – June 21)
Your mantra of optimism: This too shall pass!
Gemini loves change, so they belong to the category of those gifted with some optimism. That means today will be different than yesterday: they meet new friends, start a new book, or learn a few moves from a dance seen on TikTok. That said, a Gemini’s mood can change dramatically from one day to the next, so it’s important for them to recognize and manage their pessimistic side when it arises. When this happens, Gemini can become uptight and critical, suddenly seeing the worst where they once used to see the best. All they have to do is become aware of their behavior and realize that it doesn’t represent them or bring them down.
Cancer(June 22 – July 21)
Your optimism mantra: I am in charge of how I feel and today I choose happiness.
Cancer’s hypersensitivity is both its blessing and its curse. So maintaining a more optimistic outlook will help him when he tends to get depressed. When a Cancer feels lost or pessimistic, they tend to isolate themselves and become uncommunicative. This will make pessimism worse. So, force yourself to get outside a little bit every day, even if it’s just walking to your favorite neighborhood coffee shop. Also, make sure you have a friend you can always talk to about anything. Speaking your feelings and an outside perspective will always help.
Leo(July 22 – August 22)
Your mantra for optimism: Someone else’s success is not my failure!
Leo is very optimistic about himself and his future. His optimism can also extend to those who lack positivism. Leo has an endless capacity for fun and entertainment (he’s very active on social media), but when he feels threatened, he can become ice-cold, jealous and aggressive. Just because someone has more Instagram followers than you doesn’t mean they’re going to outshine you. You have to remember that there is room for everyone on this planet!
Virgo(August 23 – September 22)
Your mantra of optimism: Done is better than perfect!
Virgo doesn’t lack for optimism when it comes to their own ideas, but they need a little help extending that optimism to those around them. A lack of control can send her into a whirlwind of fearful thoughts, and her high standards can mean that no thing or project is good enough to finish. When this happens to you, step away for a bit and revisit the situation later, or ask a trusted friend for advice. An objective outside opinion can help you see the good in all the things you think need improvement.
Libra(September 23 – October 22)
Your Optimism Mantra: Accept the good and the bad!
Libra is optimistic by nature and is known to be adorable, charming and an incurable romantic. She can really get into trouble if she lets problems get the better of her optimism, leading to major meltdowns even when the smallest things go wrong. You want everyone to be happy, but you need to make sure your needs are met too. Find a breathing exercise that works for you and calms you down, so next time you start doing it as soon as you see negative thoughts coming up. Then put your rosy glasses back on and get back to your happy life.
Scorpio(October 23 – November 21)
Your mantra of optimism: I am the sky. Everything else is just time!
Scorpio lives and feels everything at maximum intensity, and this means that they are prone to extreme bouts of optimism and pessimism. When his pessimistic side emerges, Scorpio can become secretive and obsessive. Instead of letting go of resentment after a breakup, he clings to and emotionally replays the betrayal. The next time something negative overwhelms you, turn your thoughts to the positive outcomes (forgive, move on, and meet new people). Write all these things down, and even if it seems mechanical at first, you will eventually start to think more positively.
Sagittarius(November 22 – December 21)
Your mantra for optimism: Don’t worry, be happy!
Congratulations, you are the most optimistic sign in the zodiac. Always ready to conquer the big existential questions, Sagittarius searches for a better meaning in everything. He is an expert in motivational speeches, inspirational stories, and the slogan “hope and change” is practically about him. But that doesn’t mean he can’t fall victim to pessimistic thinking just like everyone else, it’s just that it’s going to hit him harder because he’s not used to dealing with these types of feelings. These are the times when you need a friend who can help you get rid of these difficult emotions and restore your positive and cheerful self.
Capricorn(December 22 – January 19)
Your Optimism Mantra: I love myself no matter what!
Capricorn is super critical of himself. And although he is usually the most pessimistic of the zodiac signs, he can rise to the heights to see the good around him. Although fiercely independent, he should be careful not to isolate himself. When he gets to that quiet and scary place, everything is terrible. Then it’s time to call a good friend over and plan a night on the town. He doesn’t need special activities, being surrounded by people he loves and can talk to easily is all he needs.
Aquarius(January 20 – February 18)
Your Optimism Mantra: I am grateful for the present and all it has to offer.
Aquarius has no problem aspiring high and being optimistic about the future, but has a lot of trouble seeing the good in the present. Aquarius can get lost in existential thinking due to cynicism about this world and the people in it. When this happens to you, take the time to list ten things that you like about what is happening right now. Doing a quick scan or meditation like this can also help you reconnect with the present in an upbeat way. Then, by focusing on the positive things in your life now, you’ll be even better prepared to make the most of the exciting things to come.
Pisces(February 19 – March 20)
Your mantra of optimism: My feelings are mine alone.
- Pisces are generally optimistic people. They can run into trouble when their intense empathy and sensitivity causes them to pick up on the pessimism of others. While a Pisces native’s friends argue heatedly in the car, he tries to escape into his imagination to avoid hearing the noise. Pisces are extremely sensitive to the emotions of others and pick up on their feelings faster than they can put a jacket on them. When you’re feeling particularly pessimistic, look inside and see if it’s about you or someone else. Once you identify the source of your feelings, you will eventually be able to analyze them.
