4 Zodiacs Who Obsess Over Timelines

You don’t want to grow too obsessed with the idea of completing certain goals by a certain time. Even if you’re doing everything right, some things are outside of your control, so you can’t fault yourself for falling short of your own expectations. Here are the zodiacs who hold on too tightly to their plans and timelines, and need to be a little more flexible:


You want to make the most of your life, which is why you have planned it out so thoroughly. Unfortunately, there’s a huge chance your plans are going to fall apart at some point. You’re going to have to learn how to pivot. You’re going to have to roll with the punches. You can’t get too upset whenever your plans go off the rails because this world is unpredictable. While it’s important to have goals, you can’t be too set on completing them by a certain date or you’re only going to end up disappointed.


Virgo, when you have a plan, you want to stick to it. You hate feeling like you’ve fallen behind, whether it’s in your career or your relationship. But you need to remember to stay flexible. Just because you had a certain plan in mind doesn’t mean it’s what’s meant to happen. You might need to readjust along the way. You might need to rethink your journey. Of course, this doesn’t mean you aren’t going to reach your destination. Your dreams will still become a reality. They just might happen at a different pace than you prepared for.


You are obsessed with the idea of success because you want to make something of yourself. You want to make your loved ones proud. But you need to remember, you can’t predict when certain goals will be met. Not everything is up to you. You can control how much time and effort you put into your dreams, but you can’t control when and where you’re going to be rewarded for all that hard work. Just because you put in the hours doesn’t mean that you’re going to end up at your destination at your desired time. You don’t want to beat yourself up over taking longer to reach your goals than you planned. You don’t want to compare your journey to the people around you either. It’s not a fair comparison. You’re dealing with different obstacles, with different advantages. So go easy on yourself. You’re doing the best that you can.


Since you were young, you had a good idea of what you wanted your life to look like. Since you know exactly what you want and you aren’t afraid to work for it, you assumed it wouldn’t be too hard to reach your dreams. But life is rarely fair. Obstacles will get in your way. Hardships will throw you off course. You might have to take a longer route than you originally expected, but that is okay. You shouldn’t panic, just because your journey is taking months, or years, longer than you had planned. You are going to get there eventually as long as you keep believing in yourself. Your timeline doesn’t matter – but your dreams still do.
