Taurus (April 20 – May 20): To Be Wiser
Taurus is a grounded, well-rounded sign known for their reliability, intelligence and ability to get things done. You pride yourself on your stability, which is why you're always eager to learn more—and to learn to be a little more sensible along the way. Since you can tend to be a little indulgent and overfocused on elegance and luxury, you hope to have more restraint in the new year. After all, the more you save now, the more you can splurge when it counts.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): To Be More Decisive
Gemini is symbolized by twins, which makes sense because of the sign's dual nature.

Your wish is for decisiveness, not only so that you can finally make a choice, but so that you can discover who you truly are.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): To Be Stronger
While they can have their downsides, Cancer's powerful emotions can also be their biggest strength. Things can really get to you, but that's not a bad thing. You're sensitive to other people's feelings and are always willing to be a shoulder to cry on. You'll be seeking strength in the new year, and while you might think that would mean pushing away your emotions, it actually means embracing and honing them.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): To Say No Sometimes
Libra is born to avoid making waves and please others, which can sometimes leave little or no room for them to take care of themself.

You'll find it a lot easier than you'd expect.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): To Focus on the Present

But in the new year, you will want to finish what you've started by focusing on what's in front of you instead of glorifying what could be. By taking things on one at a time, you'll be able to accomplish more than you ever have in the past.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): To Just Have a Good Time

You pride yourself in your ability to get things done, and get them done right, but you also recognize the need for a little bit of work-life balance. In the new year, you'll be looking for a chance to let loose, and let your free time be free time instead of filling it with work. Once you start truly having fun, you're going to want to keep having fun, and that perfect middle ground will finally show itself to you.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): To Start Fresh
Aquarius is a sign that values freedom and independence above almost everything else, and the last thing they want is to be bogged down by the past—no matter how recent. You march to the beat of your own drum and aren't going to let anybody's expectations or prejudices get in your way, and all you want this Jan. 1 is to have a totally fresh start. You're ready to throw away everything negative that happened in the last 12 months and embrace something new and wonderful.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): To Try Harder
Pisces is as creative, intuitive and genuine as they come, but it's not exactly known as the sign of doers. You're typically the idea person, dreaming up big, artistic concepts, but rarely taking the time to make them a reality. Often you'll want to see something through to completion in your imagination before you set it to paper, and that rarely happens—but maybe this year will be different. It's time to stop being lazy because it's easy, and to really try. The more you can achieve, the less you'll be tempted to lounge around.
