Happy 2021! After the dumpster fire that was 2020, we might all be a little hesitant to say, “2021 is going to be my year!” But that doesn’t mean we can’t set goals, right? New Year’s resolutions can be a lot of fun, and they can help you get the year started on the right foot. But what goals should you be setting?
It’s a brand new year, so let’s talk about how you can set the theme for 2021 with a resolution based on your zodiac sign.
Capricorn, you’re so ambitious. You’re our favorite overachiever. And, of all the signs, you’re the one who probably already has this resolution thing figured out, right?
Well, just in case you haven’t already created a multi-tiered plan with benchmark deadlines, how about this? Capricorn, we want you to resolve to relax a little more in 2021. Take some time every day (or every week, if every day is too much for you) to do something completely for yourself. And we’re not talking about something that will help your career or boost you on the way to your next goal. We’re talking about some quality you-time — like soaking in the tub, bingeing a new fav show on Netflix, or curling up with a book.
Think you can get away from the grind long enough to chill for just a bit this year, Capricorn? If your answer isn’t a resounding “Heck yes!” then we definitely think this should be your 2021 resolution!
Aquarius, when it comes to making the world a better place for others, you’re a rock star. Why not put some of that energy into making it a better place for yourself too?
You care deeply, and you’re always using your creativity and passion to find ways to give back. For your New Year’s resolution in 2021, we want you to include your friends and fam in your causes. They might not always want to come with you to protest for climate change, but they might have a great time with you on a Sunday morning at the soup kitchen.
Aquarius, in 2021, we want you to share your passion with the people you care about and let them show you that they can be there for you too.
Pisces, your intuition is unmatched, and so is your imagination. Why not put both to work for you in 2021? For you, our beautiful waterbaby, we recommend a resolution to take the big risk that helps you achieve your dreams. What have you been daydreaming about? How can you make it a reality? Dig into your intuition and your spiritual side. Check your gut and go with what it tells you. You don’t have to explain it — just believe in yourself and make it happen.
Aries, your upfront, fiery approach to life is impressive. But sometimes you just need to take a beat. Learn to step back, pause, and take a breath before you react. For you, Aries, we recommend a 2021 resolution that includes some inner peace work. It might sound crazy, but maybe resolve to meditate for five minutes a day — or just when someone gets in your face for the fifth time in twenty minutes. Let 2021 be the year of the calm, collected warrior. You’re still a badass, but you might benefit from a little chill to temper your fire.
Taurus, girl, let’s talk about getting out of your comfort zone in 2021. Let’s talk about learning to be more flexible. What’s your first instinct when someone changes plans at the last minute — and the new plan doesn’t involve Netflix and chill? Just thinking about it makes your skin crawl a little, right? We’re not suggesting that you need to go full Gemini, but maybe take some cues from your air sign sisters on how to go with the flow (just a little). In 2021, Taurus, we want you to step out and take some risks. Practice your flexibility. See where a little adaptability can take you.
Gemini, you’re the brightest, shiniest sign in the zodiac. You’re gorgeous, and you know it. But you’re also kind and warmhearted. We think your 2021 New Year’s resolution should focus on helping others shine as brightly as you do. Whether it’s volunteering with Big Brothers Big Sisters, donating time to helping a friend get her business off the ground, or shopping for a local food bank. Gemini, in 2021, we want you to feel the warmth and brightness that comes with giving back. Trust us, it’s a really good look.
Cancer, you’re as discerning as they come. Of all the zodiac signs, we would choose you for fashion advice and brutal honesty when we need it. But not every situation requires that harsh truth. And we know your perceptions are dead on, but they can also be more than a little judgmental on occasion. So why not make your 2021 resolution to be less judging and more understanding? You don’t have to be a doormat, but why not give someone a second chance now and then? Or you could resolve to practice seeing things from others’ perspectives. Before you say “Oh, honey, no,” to a friend’s new idea, resolve to ask “What’s your motivation? What are you seeing?” Take a breath and take a look through others’ eyes in 2021, Cancer. You might be surprised at what you see!
Leo, you’re not just a pretty face with a great voice — you’re a natural-born leader and a fantastic listener. How can you use those talents to make the world a better place? Is there a cause in your community that could use a little organization? In 2021, we want you to look for opportunities to take the lead to make the world a better place. Use your lioness powers to give back and give your life a little more meaning and warmth this year, Leo.
Virgo, you’re going to hate this, but we think your motto for 2021 should be something like “Bless this mess!” You’re a perfectionist, and we love you for it, but it can drive you (and everyone around you) a little crazy. This year, make a resolution to let go, relax, and embrace the concept that done is better than perfect. Leave the dishes in the sink now and then. Let someone else take on some of your load, even if you know they aren’t going to do it as well as you would. Let the baseboards collect a little dust while you grab a nap or go get a pedicure. You might be surprised at how much more you can accomplish (and how much more time you have for yourself) when you let go just a little.
Libra, honey, you’re full of love, light, romance, and you’re the biggest flirt we know. But, when it comes to making decisions, you’re the WORST. People see your indecision as weakness when you’re really just trying to figure out how to choose the best option for everyone. If you could figure out how to make the whole world happy, we know you would. But, because you’re so invested in making everyone’s day, you get lost in the mix. And people take advantage of you.
So, for your 2021 New Year’s resolution, Libra, we want you to practice making solid decisions, standing by them, and standing up for yourself. Whether someone’s interrupting you in a conversation or taking credit for your idea at work, we want you to stop going with the flow in 2021, Libra. Take a cue from Aries and channel your inner badass. Get in touch with your favorite Taurean and practice a little stubbornness.
Apply a little fire and just the slightest touch of bullheadedness to your daily life in 2021, Libra. When someone asks where you want to go eat, picture the first place that comes to mind and go with it! When you have a great idea and somebody tries to talk over you, use your sweetness to kindly and gently stand your ground and make your point. You got this!
Okay, Scorpio, this is going to be a challenge, but… We want you to open up in 2021. You don’t have to tell strangers your deepest, darkest secrets, but try unloading what’s on your mind and what’s in your heart to a few of your closest girlfriends. Revealing that you aren’t a robot or an impenetrable brick wall will help you get closer and forge those lasting bonds. You don’t show it a lot, but we know you crave that kind of intimacy. You can get it in 2021, Scorpio. Just resolve to open up, even just a little.
Sagittarius, we love your joie de vivre. We love that you’re a free spirit and you go with the flow wherever it leads you. We wouldn’t ever change any of that — it’s what makes you so very special. But hear us out. What if, in 2021, you resolve to be just a little more dependable? You love building strong bonds with your friends, family, and romantic partners, right? Those bonds are so much stronger when your people know they can trust you to be there for them. They love that you take them on adventures, but maybe try to be less than an hour late for those road trips and lunch dates?
