The Secret You’re Keeping About Your Mental Health (Based On Your Zodiac Sign)


Your work-life balance has a tendency to become a work-work-work and sometimes life balance, causing stress to wreak havoc on your body. Every year you say it’s going to be different, you’ll figure out how to juggle 50 balls at once, but maybe the solution is putting a few of those balls down. If you don’t begin to prioritize what’s important to you, as well as what your body needs, you’ll be on the road to burnout. Rest before that happens.


You have a better memory than most, particularly for events and situations that have caused you emotional wounds. You have learned how to forgive, sure, but you never forget. Even at your happiest, a part of you has been looking back towards the parts of yourself that cry out in pain. Let 2023 be the year where you resolve everything that you’re holding onto (whether consciously or unconsciously). It’ll never go away if you keep holding onto it.


You like to socialize and chat with those that matter to you, but how often do you talk about things that are negatively impacting your mental health? How often do you set aside this untrue feeling that you are a burden? I’m willing to bet the answer is “not often.” I want you to know that you are worth listening to, Gemini. Next time you find yourself sad or upset in any way, I encourage you to be open about that with the people that love you. Let others help you through it.


You care so deeply about people that oftentimes this care can look a lot like anxiety. Anxiety about whether or not you’re treating everybody with the kindness they deserve, or anxiety about your loved ones leaving and moving on, or anxiety about so much that you can hardly find a source to point at. Please know that you are doing more than enough, Cancer. You deserve the love and compassion that you show everyone else. Your worry is not based in reality, I promise.


Leo, you know exactly what you want from this life. You’ve daydreamed about it so extensively that it’s almost as if those scenarios in your mind are more true than reality. So whenever something happens to push you further from those goals of yours, it’s easy for you to fall apart over it. In 2023, you have to accept that nothing will ever be as perfect as the fantasies you’ve concocted in your head. That doesn’t mean you won’t be happy anyway.


Anger isn’t an emotion that you’d call yourself intimate with. You feel it, yes, but you’ve historically been able to set it aside in order to have rational discussions with the people you care about. But there’s a difference between expressing your anger in a healthy way and never addressing it at all. Anger is not an enemy, it is a teacher. Let this be the year that you begin to listen to it, rather than shut it down as soon as it rears its head. 


You are confident and playful, the life of the party, someone that knows how to be the center of attention. But nobody knows that you feel deeply insecure about whether or not people like you. At night, once everyone’s gone home, you can’t help but overthink every minor interaction, finding faults with all of them. You don’t have to suffer in silence, Libra. If you need some validation from your loved ones, it’s within your power to ask for it.


When life gets busy, the first thing you tend to abandon is self-care. And, of course, once you abandon self-care, even the most manageable of schedules can feel incredibly daunting and impossible to accomplish. I know that listening to your body and taking care of its needs may feel like “wasted time,” but you are your best, most productive self when you are well-rested, well-fed, and given space to breathe. 


You’ve been told your whole life that “patience is a virtue,” but its meaning has never really sunk in. Your fear of being stagnant for too long has manifested in an adulthood impatience that not only impacts your relationships with others, but your relationship with yourself. Sagittarius, it’s time to let your life grow on its own timeline. Give yourself permission to be happy in the waiting period between changes. I promise, you’re not missing out on anything.


Things have been looking good for you, Capricorn. You feel like you’re coming out of a slump and can finally see daylight on the road ahead. But there’s always been something about the good days that makes you wonder when they’re going to end and what you should prepare for in the meantime. Stop waiting for the next problem to arise and enjoy the present, where you have it all together. No matter what, you’ll be able to get through it.


Do you really know yourself? You think deeply about everything and could rattle off a list of your beliefs and interests if asked, but at the end of the day, Aquarius, who are you? You don’t need to have an answer, but I know that it often feels like everybody else has a clear idea and you’re the only one creeping through the dark. The secret is that we are always evolving and changing–you can know who you are one day, and then three years later be back at square one. You’re not alone.


You’re the type of person, Pisces, that absorbs the feelings of your loved ones as if they were your own. While this makes you an intuitive lover, friend, and family member, it also puts a lot of unnecessary stress on your body. You can help others through their issues without carrying the burden of them on your back. In 2023, make it a point to set boundaries in order to protect your mental health. You owe it to yourself to take care of you first.
