2019 is fast approaching, which means it’s time to start thinking about resolutions. Many people vow to make changes at this time of year, but those changes don’t always stick. Sometimes that comes down to a simple lack of discipline, but sometimes it can also be because they’re choosing resolutions that are just wrong for them at this point in time.
And if that’s the case, how does any person choose a resolution that’s actually right for them and will benefit them over the next twelve months and beyond?
All anyone needs to do is ask the stars!
The twelve astro signs each have their own resolutions for 2019 that will improve the quality of their lives. These resolutions were chosen with the personalities of the signs in mind, including their likes and dislikes, and their strengths and weaknesses. The four elements—fire, earth, air, and water—also have similar habits that should be broken in the coming year, and goals that they should stick to based on the characteristics of their personalities.
So what New Year’s resolution for 2019 is a good fit? And what habit has to go in the coming year? Check out the list below to find out!
20 Aries: Get Enough Sleep Every Night
Getting enough sleep every night might seem like a simple resolution to make, but you’d be surprised how tricky it can be! This is especially true for Aries, who is always on the go. And Aries ladies need more sleep than everyone else precisely for that reason! In general, they’re the most sleep-deprived of all. When you’re not rested enough, you can’t perform at your best, and we know how much Aries likes competing and giving the best she can. Set a bedtime that’s going to give you enough time to fully rest your body and stick to it in 2019.
19 Leo: Get Rid Of The Toxic People
Leo ladies have probably been thinking about this for a while, but now it’s time to do something about it.
In 2019, Leo should take action to remove all of the toxic people from her life.
This is anyone who is bad for her, even if she sometimes enjoys their company. It’s all about increasing her wellbeing and making the best decision for her in the long run. Because she’s such a social butterfly and loves to surround herself with all kinds of people, it’s easy for a few bad eggs to slip in. A big social clean out is in order for 2019!
18 Sagittarius: Travel Somewhere New
What’s the one thing Sagittarius loves to do more than anything else? You’ve got it—travel! So she should spend the next year doing exactly what she loves. Especially if she’s been wanting to get away but has made excuses and put it off, there’s no better time to plan a trip than right now. It’s tempting to re-visit places that you’ve enjoyed, but Sagittarius gals should think about going somewhere completely new. She should visit the one place she’s always wanted to but hasn’t gotten around to. This will satisfy their love of adventure and endless curiosity, at least until the travel bug bites again.
17 Fire Resolutions: Slow The Pace
Our advice to the fire signs for 2019 would be to slow things down. Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are always looking for excitement and love to rush through life.
If they learn to slow the pace and take life as it comes rather than forcing things to happen too quickly, they might notice a huge load released from their shoulders.
Aries should literally slow down by relaxing more and getting more sleep. Leo should stop and think about the people in her life, and whether she actually wants them there. And for Sagittarius, slowing down can be taking a break from work and doing something fun.
16 Fire Signs Should Stop: Reacting Too Quickly
If there’s one bad habit that the fire signs should leave behind in 2019, it’s reacting to situations too quickly. All the fire signs are toasty-tempered and fiery (of course), and they’ve all been known to overreact in the past.
The problem with overreacting is that you can say things that you don’t really mean, and cause some serious consequences that could have been avoided if you’d waited for the emotions to pass through you.
These signs might like to try taking some deep breaths and putting off giving a response until they know they’re totally calm.
15 Taurus: Start Saving Money
The one resolution that Taurus should try hard to stick to in 2019 is to save more money. This may not seem like an exciting goal, but it will become exciting in the future when she has plenty of money behind her to start doing the things she really loves in life.
Taurus is a hard worker and definitely has no problem with earning money, but it’s the resisting the urge to spend part that sometimes gets her.
In the coming year, she should try hard to resist! Even making little changes, like reducing the number of times a month she brunches with her friends, can make all the difference.
14 Virgo: Learn To Go With The Flow
Sometimes, it can seem pointless to tell a Virgo to let go of control and trust that life knows what it’s doing. But in 2019, Virgo ladies should try hard to just go with the flow, even if it goes against their natural tendency to control and plan. It’s a simple fact of life that you can’t control everything, and you certainly can’t plan for everything. So the sooner a gal can accept that sometimes life is a ride and she just has to hold on tight rather than struggle against it, the better. When Virgo does go with the flow, she has a lot more fun.
13 Capricorn: Make Time For Self-Care
Capricorn is one of the signs who is the most notorious for forgetting to look after herself. This sign is all work and no play, which usually means she’s successful in life, but that comes at a price.
In 2019, it will be in her best-interest to practice a little self-care.
The amazing thing about this you don’t have to stop working altogether to make it happen. It’s all about the little things—she might change her skin care to something that feels heavenly, or make time for a massage once a month, or set aside five minutes a day to meditate. It’s worth it.
12 Earth Resolutions: Correct Bad Habits
For the earth signs, 2019 is going to be all about correcting bad habits. It’s no secret that Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn love to work hard and be the best they can be, so it should be a year to look forward to! One of Taurus’s guiltiest habits is splurging on material things, and in the coming year, she might like to set a budget and start saving money. Virgo’s worst habit is over-thinking and trying to control everything, so she’ll have a much more peaceful 2019 if she learns to relax and let things go. And Capricorn’s bad habits usually revolve around her neglecting herself, which can be fixed with some self-care.
11 Earth Signs Should Stop: Taking Everything So Seriously
A common bad habit of all the earth signs that should be corrected in 2019 is taking things too seriously! These signs might never be the type to think of life as one big party, but they don’t have to stress themselves out by taking absolutely every little thing to heart. There is too much going on in life to take everything totally seriously, and life is too short to never have time for a joke. It’s highly likely that if these signs learn to laugh at themselves and not worry about every little thing, they’ll feel much happier on a daily basis.
10 Gemini: Spend Less Time On Social Media
This might be a goal for a lot of people to consider, but it’s important for Gemini ladies especially. Try and spend less time each day on social media. For Gemini, being present in the moment and living life to the fullest is important, but when you’ve always got your face in your screen, you’re missing what’s going on around you! It might be an idea for Gemini to set a limit for how many minutes a day she spends scrolling. Also, Gemini tends to suffer from a serious fear of missing out, and it’s really bad for her competitive streak when she watches other people brag about their lives.
9 Libra: Have The Confidence To Speak Up
Having the confidence to speak up isn’t always easy, but this is something that Libra can work towards in 2019. By nature, Libra is diplomatic and agreeable, and she can always see the good in everyone and everything.
She doesn’t have a problem with speaking, but it can be hard for her to raise her opinion if it’s one that may be a little controversial.
But sometimes those opinions need to be shared! Libra is also naturally very wise, so she can use her wisdom to judge when it’s appropriate to speak up and when she should wait for a better time.
8 Aquarius: Appreciate Loved Ones
Aquarius has a natural humanitarian streak inside of her, but she sometimes gets carried away with the bigger picture and forgets to appreciate the people who are the closest to her. In 2019, it might be a good idea for her to pay extra attention to the important people in her life, and to make sure they know how much she appreciates them. Sometimes Aquarius can be a little emotionally distant, which makes people feel as though they’ve personally done something wrong. While she can’t change her personality, she can let them know that it’s nothing personal and she still loves and appreciates them!
7 Air Resolutions: Count All The Blessings
The air signs are very blessed in many ways, and in 2019, they should count their blessings and practice gratitude.
Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are all naturally positive signs, so it shouldn’t be too difficult for them to acknowledge the good things they have, and in doing so, attract more good things.
Gemini has to stop competing with others and learn to feel grateful for what she’s got, while Libra should value the qualities and skills she has, and use them more frequently. And when it comes to gratitude, Aquarius should show her appreciation for the amazing people in her life.
6 Air Signs Should Stop: Neglecting The Things That Matter
Every now and then, the air signs can fall into the trap of neglecting the things that are important and paying too much attention to things that are not. In fact, this might not just be exclusive to the air signs!
But in 2019, these signs might like to make a whole new list of priorities and stop neglecting the things that matter.
This might be self-care, hobbies, professional aspirations, a relationship or even family and friends. Even just expressing gratitude and appreciation for the things they have already can remind these signs of what’s important in life and what’s not.
5 Cancer: Learn How To Say No
Being able to say no is something that everyone should be able to do by a certain point in their lives. It’s not always easy to say no, but that doesn’t make it any less important.
Cancer, in particular, can have a lot of trouble with saying no because she loves to impress and please people.
She also doesn’t enjoy conflict, and would rather go along with something that doesn’t feel right to her, than risk upsetting someone else by saying no. In 2019, Cancer can start by saying no to the little things that she knows won’t be a big deal. After a while, saying no will get easier.
4 Scorpio: Don’t Worry About Things Beyond Control
Not worrying about the things you can’t control is easier said than done. But it is still important because worrying about the things that you can’t change brings on a serious amount of stress and frustration. Scorpio has a tendency to worry about every little thing under the sun because she has an intense, passionate personality. She wants things to be perfect and can get upset quite easily if they’re not. The best thing this sign can do in 2019 is accept that she doesn’t have control of absolutely everything, and she should stop worrying about the things she can’t change.
3 Pisces: Reconnect With Old Friends
One of the greatest joys in life can come from reconnecting with people who were once very important to you.
Relationships of all kinds are important to an emotional and sensitive sign like Pisces, so she should think about reaching out to some old faces in the coming year.
Rekindling those sparks might give her a sense of happiness, but also open up some new opportunities. You never know what or who people can bring into your life if you make the effort to catch up with them! If there are old grudges there, Pisces will feel much happier letting them go.
2 Water Resolutions: Go Beyond The Comfort Zone Boundaries
The water signs—Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces—can sometimes get stuck in their comfort zones. Cancer and Pisces, in particular, tend to tread carefully and don’t always like taking risks. But the truth is the most amazing things can happen when you leave your comfort zone! It’s worth putting yourself out there, just to see what you can get in return. Cancer can leave her comfort zone by learning how to say no to people and standing up for herself. For Scorpio, it will be about relinquishing control, and Pisces should put herself out there socially and see what comes back to her.
1 Water Signs Should Stop: Ignoring The Call Of Their Hearts
The water signs are very in tune with what their hearts are saying to them, but that doesn’t mean they always follow the call. Sometimes, for whatever reason, they choose to do things that go against their inner voice and intuition. In 2019, it’s time for these signs to stop ignoring what they really want. Most often, they don’t follow their dreams out of fear that they won’t come to fruition, or because they don’t want to disappoint people. The water signs should leave those fears aside and take a huge leap that could change everything for the better.
