Aries (March 21 April 19)
As an Aries, the reason why you find it so hard to find happiness is because of your relentless need to just control everything and everyone around you. You don’t typically like to get too caught up in your emotions all too often but that doesn’t mean that you’re incapable of feeling things very deeply. You just need to stop putting so much pressure on yourself so you can really be happy.
Taurus (April 20 May 21)
Any alteration to your routine will be enough to just completely throw you off. As a Taurus, it’s very important for you to establish stability and consistency in life. And while that’s good, it also leaves you susceptible to being crippled by unexpected changes. Your unwillingness and incapability to adapt is what is holding you back from really being happy.
Gemini (May 22 June 21)
Your reluctance to be alone is the reason why you just can’t manage to attain full happiness. You have to understand that as bleak as it may sound, you are alone in this universe. You can only ever really rely on yourself to have your back at all times. You have to learn to be happy in your solitude because even the people who love you most in this world can’t be there for you all the time.
Cancer (June 22 July 22)
You are a very sensitive and empathetic soul. As a Cancer, you are very much in touch with your emotions and it’s the reason why a lot of people feel comfortable with you. But your sensitivity also makes you fragile and weak. You need to toughen up a little bit because your weak spirit is what is keeping you from being happy.
Leo (July 23 August 22)
Your ego is really what’s holding you back from finding real happiness. You let the littlest things get to you. You are so confident in yourself but a simple comment could also make you the most damaged and insecure person in the world. You need to gain better control of your ego. You can’t tie your self-worth to the validation of other people.
Virgo (August 23 September 22)
Your obsessive compulsion to make sure that everything around you is perfect is why you are unhappy. You have to understand that perfection doesn’t exist in this life. You need to accept that many people and situations aren’t going to be perfect.
Libra (September 23 October 22)
Whenever imbalance or inequality present themselves to you, you just die a little bit on the inside every time. You are a peacemaker. You took that role upon yourself and it’s also the reason why you just struggle to find genuine happiness in life. You just have to accept that you can’t be everyone’s savior. You can’t always maintain the peace especially in a society with such a diverse set of philosophies and worldviews.
Scorpio (October 23 November 22)
You have a very intense personality; which can also make you toxic to yourself. When you get hurt, you feel these negative emotions intensely. You dig an emotional hole for yourself that’s just way too deep even when it doesn’t have to be. And it can be hard for you to be happy if you can’t keep things in moderation.
Sagittarius (November 23 December 21)
Your fear of commitment is what is holding you back from being happy. As a Sagittarius, you hold your desires to be free a little too tightly. You are so hell-bent on being a free spirit to the point where you are essentially crippling yourself. It’s almost ironic. Your reluctance to stick to one place, person, or path is the reason why you remain to be unhappy.
Capricorn (December 22 January 20)
You are a natural-born leader who is always striving towards a specific goal (sometimes, even multiple big goals at once). And as a result of your sheer determination and focus, you tend to neglect your own personal needs and wants in life. You have to remember that aside from working towards your dreams, you also have to feed your soul with joy and meaningful enrichment.
Aquarius (January 21 February 18)
You just have to learn to listen to your heart every once in a while. As an Aquarius, you are a rational thinker. Your mind is your greatest asset but it is also your greatest downfall. You are always trying to rationalize everything that you end up depriving yourself of a genuine human experience with your emotions.
Pisces (February 19 March 20)
You are something of an emotional rollercoaster as a Pisces. You are constantly having to endure a life of ups and downs with your feelings and that’s why you can’t seem to find happiness. The moment when something manages to bring you up, it doesn’t take much to bring you back down. You need to stop letting your feelings and emotions rule your life. You have to have better emotional control.
