What You Need to Do to Own 2018, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

The new year has just begun, which means 2018 is full of millions of different possibilities.

If you really want to make the most of this year, your zodiac sign reveals what you have to do in order to own it below.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Stay on Track

Energetic Aries, not a day goes by that you aren't doing something. While others will take a few days off to recover, you're not one to rest. You have a lot you want to accomplish, so you always do your very best to do just that. The only problem is you tend to get sidetracked rather easily. This year, instead of just following your instincts, make sure you write out your plan and stick to a stricter schedule.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Save Your Money

You enjoy the finer things in life, Taurus. You've been known to drop some serious dough when you want to treat yourself or your loved ones. While you work hard for the money, you'll truly benefit from being a little less frivolous with your spending. Rather than spending your money the second you get it, save some for a big trip or a major splurge later in the year.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Try Something New

You love learning, Gemini. You have this insatiable curiosity that takes you to some unique places and introduces you to a ton of interesting people. You just want to know everything about everything, but sometimes you talk yourself out of your adventures because you're not the biggest fan of uncertainty. Instead of stopping yourself from eating at the new restaurant or joining a different club, just do it. Don't think, just do. Trying something new will lead to discovering things you never knew you were capable of.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Get Artistic

Emotional is the best way to describe you, Cancer. What can we say, you just have a lot of feelings that are difficult for you to express. You tend to suppress them until they all boil over. Rather than hiding your true feelings from everyone else, yourself included, turn them into art. Whether you decide to draw, paint, sculpt or write, let 2018 be the year you find your artistic outlet.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Practice Self-Love

You have no problem making friends, Leo. Everyone who meets you instantly adores you, mainly due to your charismatic and generous personality. You wouldn't have it any other way. You don't just enjoy the spotlight, you crave it. You always need to know what others think of you, but let's leave that in 2017. This is the year you practice some much needed self-love. Little by little, you'll find yourself not being so concerned with others' opinions of you.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Be Less Critical

As the perfectionist of the zodiac, you tend to get in your own way. You can be your own worst enemy at times. You just want everything to be, well, perfect. Allow yourself to let go a little bit and trust yourself more in 2018. There is only so much you can control, so when things don't work out as you hoped, don't be too hard on yourself. Learn from your mistakes and move on.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Trust Your Gut

When people need help making a tough decision, they turn to you. You have a knack for weighing every outcome and figuring out which one will turn out best. The only problem is that it can take you days, weeks, years to finally make a decision. If you want to prosper in 2018, learn to trust your gut a little more. Start by letting it guide you with smaller decisions and then work your way up to bigger choices. You got this!

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Admit When You're Wrong

You're as stubborn as they come, Scorpio. You stick to your opinions like glue, mainly because you've done your research and know they're valid. Though this very rarely happens, you can be wrong occasionally. When you discover you've made a mistake or are in the wrong, you have a problem accepting that. This has caused some of your past relationships to fall to the wayside. You can totally own this year if you learn to accept defeat every now and then. It won't be easy, but you can do it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Keep Your Promises

Being the carefree adventurer of the zodiac, you're a total traveler. There's no city too small, no country too big for you to explore. You're also incredibly philosophic in terms of how you think. People truly appreciate your idealistic nature. The only thing they're not too fond of is your inability to keep your promises every so often. Often times, you forget about your commitments and let others down. Vow to be more careful about following through on your agreements in 2018.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Have Fun

Everyone knows you're a workaholic, Capricorn. You're responsible and disciplined, so you're definitely the "mom" of the zodiac. Being the hardest working individual is just who you are, but everyone needs to have some fun free-time. Make sure you schedule a few hours every day to just let loose and do something for yourself. You'll have a much happier year, if you do so.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Socialize

No one craves their alone time more than you, Aquarius. While you enjoy meeting new people and having intellectual conversations, you tend to hide away from the outside world. There's nothing wrong with staying in to watch Netflix, except when you do it every single day. This year is all about socializing with your classmates and making new friends. Remember, life begins where your comfort zone ends.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Spend Time Alone

Compassionate and gentle Pisces, you always do your best to make sure everyone around you is living their best life. You're really the bestie we all deserve. But your tendency to put others' needs ahead of your own is the cause of your low self-esteem. Rather than being there for everyone else, check in with yourself and do what you need to live your best life. Your friends will understand. And if they're your real friends, they'll help you on this confidence-boosting journey.
