Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

About you: Capricorn girl, you are known for taking pride in knowing a lot about a lot of things. Sometimes you are mistaken for a know-it-all, when really you're just passionate about learning. You are considered the most serious of the signs because of your undeniable discipline and self-control. 

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Do something at least once a week that scares you. Why? Because this is the year you take yourself out of your comfort zone, you try new things and you allow yourself to see all that you are capable of completing! Doing something that scares you does not mean you're not responsible, it means you're open-minded. 


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

About you: Being an Aquarius, you are both shy and energetic. One day you might be quiet and reserved, and the next day you're talkative and outgoing—it all depends on your mood. You tend to run from emotional expression which can sometimes get you in trouble.

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Make sure you make you time. You love having fun times with friends and engaging in deep and meaningful conversations, but you need to make sure that you save some time alone for yourself away from all distractions in order to recharge. Having personal time to yourself will help you think clearer and will keep you from being temperamental. So treat yourself! Get a mani, catch up on your fave TV show or read a book. Just make sure you're leaving time for you.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

About you: Pisces girl, you are naturally creative and drawn to anything musical. You're probably the most compassionate girl in your friend group and you are as sweet as can be. Totally selfless!

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Be a little selfish. It may sound odd (especially to you), but sometimes it's ok to be a little selfish. It's great that you love putting others before you, but it's important you take care of yourself. No one is going to love you as much as you can love you, so do yourself a favor and do what you want this year… not just what everyone else wants. 


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

About you: You are one confident chica. You are courageous, determined, enthusiastic and not afraid of any challenge. You act on impulse and go for things when you want them. 

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Think before you act. It sounds like a simple task, but for you Aries girl, it will be the perfect little challenge. Although acting on impulse can sometimes have its benefits, it can also cause you to take action before you've really considered how your actions can affect you and others. Before making any decision big or small this year, stop, breathe and consider how the choice you make can change things for better or for worse. 


Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

About you: You are a sensible one, Taurus girl. You stick to your ways and people can rely on you—a very good trait to have. Because you're so responsible, you're often given important leadership roles and are trusted immensely. 

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Let go. It's great that you are so reliable and devoted, but sometimes your powerful and practical nature verges on stubbornness. At times, you have too much on your plate, and this is the year to realize that you don't have to do everything alone. Let some of your responsibilities fall on others and trust that they, too, can get everything done. 


Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

About you: You are probably the most thoughtful and affectionate of all the signs. Although you can at times be very serious, you are also quite sociable and always love making others happy.

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Be more decisive. Your thoughtfulness is a wonderful quality, but sometimes you need to take charge and make decisions. This year, if your friend group is having a tough time deciding where to eat or where to go, you will be the one to take initiative and make a decision. Decisiveness is a powerful thing. 


Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

About you: As a Cancer you're no stranger to your emotions… you're a tad on the sensitive side, after all. You're tenacious, imaginative you truly care what other people think. 

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Be more confident. It's great that you care how others perceive you, but it matters most what you think about yourself! This year acknowledge how wonderful, fabulous and capable you are—others will take notice. 


Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

About you: Leo girl, you are a star. You are cheerful, humorous and always the life of the party. People are drawn to your energy, and you love the attention. 

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Listen more carefully. Although you love attention, you need to make sure that your friends feel they are receiving respect and consideration. Listen to what they have to say, take the sideline every once in a while, and be there to lend an ear when it's needed. They'll appreciate that your focus is all on them. 


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

About you: If you're known for one thing, it's that you're extremely hardworking. So hardworking, in fact, that sometimes you need someone to remind you to take a little break and have some fun.

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Be more spontaneous. As a Virgo, you like to leave nothing to chance. You can sometimes be too sensible for your own good, so this year try doing things more spontaneously. Go on a weekend trip, call up a friend you haven't seen in a while or talk to the crush you've been eyeing forever. There doesn't have to be a playbook for everything. ????


Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

About you: As a Libra, you are a social butterfly. You love being surrounded by close friends and fam, and you despise being alone. You're most happy when you're exploring new and beautiful places or on a hike in the great outdoors. 

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Spend at least one night a week alone. Although you thrive when you're surrounded by loved ones, you need alone time to recharge your battery and keep your sanity. Take one night a week to journal, read or do something calming like yoga. Then get back to your social ways revived and energized!


Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

About you: You absolutely love being right, don't deny it. If you feel like you have the right answer, you will stubbornly argue until whoever is disagreeing caves. You distrust anyone who challenges you. 

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Trust more. Face it, sometimes you're going to be wrong. So listen to what others have to say this year and don't always ride off other people's thoughts and opinions, you could learn something quite valuable. 


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

About you: As a Sag, you are extremely inquisitive and always on the lookout for your next adventure. You love travel, discovering hole-in-the new hangouts and always having something to do. When things slow down, you become impatient, seeing as you hate monotony.

Your perfect New Year's resolution: Practice patience. This is the year you should really stop, reflect and even force yourself to slow down. Enjoy each moment as it comes and don't think too far ahead about your next adventure or activity. Be in the now.
