8 Dressing Rules That Everyone Should Learn Once And For All

Everyone has their own unique style and way of getting dressed, but there are certain rules to follow when you wear some items. Now, of course, you can always choose to ignore them.

However, following them might actually help your overall appearance and you might decide that it works better for you.

So what are these dressing rules exactly? Well, we’ve got a few basic rules for you that’ll help keep you looking in tip-top shape:

1) Always close the middle button on your suit jacket. You can choose to keep the top button open or closed – that’s up to you. However, the lower one shouldn’t be closed.

2) Apparently too much jewelry (especially matching jewelry) looks a little tacky. For instance, you can wear earrings that match your bracelet, but you probably should stay away from wearing a matching bracelet, necklace, earrings, and rings. Do you though.

3) The bottom tip of your tie should reach your waist and pass it by just a little bit. Above that is too short and below that is way too long.

4) If you are wearing a button-up dress shirt without a tie, you don’t need a jacket. Put a tie on and it’ll look like you’re missing your jacket.

5) If you tuck your shirt into your pants, you should probably wear a belt, otherwise just untuck your shirt and live your life.

6) Your belt should be the same color as your shoes. I mean, it doesn’t have to be, but it definitely looks much better.

7) This happens to the best of us, but remember to remove all visible ties from your clothes. Sometimes clothing brands place tags in really strange places. To ensure that all tags are off you before you head out, have someone spin you around to check if you’re good to go.

8) Wearing too many prints makes you look like a quilted upholstery. Take a step back, you’re doing too much.

Pick A Card And Find Out What Fate Is Preparing For You In The Near Future?

Who among us doesn’t want to know what fate has prepared for him? What will happen in our lives in the near future, and whether this can be avoided or used to our advantage. All you have to do is choose the one card you like the most and read your prediction. Let’s start!

1- THE CREATOR

Meaning of the Card: There are two types of creators in the world. One type of creator works with objects – a poet, a painter, they work with objects, they create things.

The other type of creator, the mystic, creates himself. He doesn’t work with objects, he works with the subject; he works on himself, his own being. And he is the real creator, the real poet because he makes himself into a masterpiece.

You are carrying a masterpiece hidden within you, but you are standing in the way. Just move aside, then the masterpiece will be revealed.

Everyone is a masterpiece because God never gives birth to anything less than that. Everyone carries that masterpiece hidden for many lives, not knowing who they are and just trying on the surface to become someone.

Drop the idea of becoming someone, because you are already a masterpiece. You cannot be improved. You have only to come to it, to know it, to realize it. God himself has created you; you cannot be improved.

Commentary on the Card: The Zen master in this card has harnessed the energy of fire and is able to use it for creation rather than destruction.

He invites us to recognize and participate with him in the understanding that belongs to those who have mastered the fires of passion, without repressing them or allowing them to get destructive and out of balance.

He is so integrated that there is no longer any difference between who he is inside and who he is in the world outside. He offers this gift of understanding and integration to all those who come to him, the gift of creative light that comes from the center of his being.

The King of Fire tells us that anything that we undertake now, with the understanding that comes from maturity, will bring enrichment to our own lives and to the lives of others. Using whatever skills you have, whatever you have learned from your own life experience, it is time to express yourself.

2-NEW VISION

Meaning of the Card: The figure on this card is being born anew, emerging from his earthbound roots and growing wings to fly into the unbounded.

The geometric shapes around the body of the figure show the many dimensions of life simultaneously available to him. The square represents the physical the manifest, the known.

The circle represents the unmanifest, the spirit, pure space. And the triangle symbolizes the threefold nature of the universe: manifest, unmanifest, and the human being who contains both.

Now you are presented with an opportunity to see life in all its dimensions, from the depths to the heights.

They exist together, and when we come to know from experience that the dark and the difficult are needed as much as the light and easy, then we begin to have a very different perspective on the world.

By allowing all of the life’s colors to penetrate us, we become more integrated.

When you open up to the ultimate, immediately it pours into you. You are no longer an ordinary human being – you have transcended. Your insight has become the insight of the whole existence. Now you are no longer separate – you have found your roots.

Otherwise, ordinarily, everybody is moving without roots, not knowing from where their heart goes on receiving energy, not knowing who goes on breathing in them, not knowing the life juice that is running inside them.

It is not the body, it is not the mind – it is something transcendental to all duality, that is called bhagavat – the bhagavat in the ten directions…

Your inner being, when it opens, first experiences two directions: the height, the dept. And then slowly, slowly, as this becomes your established situation, you start looking around, spreading into all other eight directions.

And once you have attained to the point where your height and your depth meet, then you can look around to the very circumference of the Universe. Then your consciousness starts unfolding in all ten directions, but the road has been one.

Commentary on the Card: All roads lead back to Source. Whatever the lessons your Soul has arranged to experience in this lifetime and whatever you make of your physical reality in this particular lifetime, all roads lead back to the Divine.

Really there is no right or wrong, just experience. There is a multitude of opportunities open to you in every moment, whether you see them; acknowledge them; take them or reject them, every decision will have a consequence.

Every consequence will lead to a longer road or a shorter road. Every choice will lead down an easier path or a more challenging one. You could completely change directions at any moment and forever alter your life’s journey.

But can you fully comprehend the potential available to you in this realm of infinite possibilities?

Only removing yourself from the everyday routine, the repetitive thoughts, the sameness of your reactions, the limits of your expectations will open the door to the higher dimensions.

Silence, stillness, contemplation, and receptivity are key.

3- BREAKTHROUGH

Meaning of the Card: The predominance of red in this card indicates a glance that its subject is energy, power, and strength.

The brilliant glow emanates from the solar plexus or center of power on the figure, and the posture is one of exuberance and determination.

All of us occasionally reach a point when “enough is enough.” At such times it seems we must do something, anything, even it later turns out to be a mistake, to throw off the burdens and restrictions that are limiting us. If we do not, they threaten to suffocate us and cripple our very life energy itself.

If you are now feeling that “enough is enough,” allow yourself to take the risk of shattering the old patterns and limitations that have kept your energy from flowing.

In doing so you will be amazed at the vitality and empowerment this Breakthrough can bring into your life.

To transform breakdowns into breakthroughs is the whole function of a master. The psychotherapist simply patches you up. That is his function. He is not there to transform you. You need metapsychology, the psychology of the Buddhas.

It is the greatest adventure in life to go through a breakdown consciously. It is the greatest risk because there is no guarantee that the breakdown will become a breakthrough. It does become, but these things cannot be guaranteed.

Your chaos is very ancient – for many, many lives you have been in chaos. It is thick and dense. It is almost a universe in itself.

So when you enter into it with your small capacity, of course, there is a danger. But without facing this danger nobody has ever become integrated, nobody has ever become an individual, indivisible.

Zen or meditation is the method which will help you to go through the chaos, through the dark night of the soul, balanced, disciplined, alert.

The dawn is not far away, but before you can reach the dawn, the dark night has to be passed through. And as the dawn comes closer, the night will come darker.”*

Commentary on the Card: We all have moments where we entertain change, then turn a blind eye to these desires and doggedly return to the routine.

We have moments of lucidity, where we suddenly rise above the chaos and can see the broader picture, the truth. Like swimming up to the surface and breaking through, breathing in the fresh, clean air and feeling the sun on our faces… then being dragged back down into the muck by our ever-present fear.

We have come too far to back down now, and it’s time to slay the dragon. Believe that you can do this, and move forward fearlessly, knowing that there really is no backward… not any longer.

Yes, it may seem dark and scary, but have you “let your eyes adjust?” maybe, just maybe, it is all a matter of perspective.

Maybe once your eyes adjust to the dark, you will see that the monster is not nearly as large as he seemed, that your sword is much larger than you realized and that you don’t even need the armor you have been dragging along for so long.

Victory is yours, but you must walk forward, one step at a time, into and through your fear, knowing that there is only light on the other side.

Or, you could just bust straight through it… your choice.

How To Make Up With Your Lover After A Fight Based On Their Zodiac Sign

Misunderstandings or disagreements come up from time to time in a healthy relationship. A weak relationship can be seen when one partner always agree with the other.

This means only one voice rules the relationship. A relationship such as this is not likely to last.

On the other hand, frequent quarrels can hurt the stability of your relationship too. This could signify you two are simply two different people who are unable to meet at a common ground. Parting ways could be the best answer to finding each other’s happiness.

If you feel your partner is the one, engaging in a fight with them hurts you the most. You know too well that you couldn’t imagine a future without them.

Making up with the person you love is not that easy, especially when the hurt is deep. It takes a lot of effort to win their love and trust once again.

In order to know how to appease your lover’s bleeding heart, the sign of their zodiac may provide you a guide.

How To Make Up With Your Lover After A Fight Based On The Zodiac:

Aries

Be direct.

Be prompt and direct when asking forgiveness from your Aries lover before it would be too late. Aries doesn’t like it when you’re beating around the bush, nor are they patient enough to wait for the ‘right time’ to come.

Admit your mistakes, ask the needed apology, and promise never to commit the same mistake again before Aries decides to jump into the dating pool.

If ever it’s their ego you’ve hurt, a public apology might be all they need.

Taurus

Admit that they were right.

Whether they admit it or not, but Taurus is the most stubborn sign in the Zodiac. Thus, it helps to admit that they were right in the first place.

Crafting a plan for possible future conflict is a big help in dealing with such conflicts in a healthy and constructive manner. This will pacify your Taurus lover who is security-conscious.

Gemini

Add humor.

Humor has the power to break a Gemini’s reserve. Sending them a funny note of apology is a wise move.

Make it quick because Gemini admires swiftness and decisiveness. Waiting is not their cup of tea.

Communication is the best and fastest way to smooth things out between you and your Gemini lover. Allowing things to settle down for days is considered by Gemini as a sign of holding back.

Cancer

Handle them with care.

The Crabs are sensitive people whose feelings are easily bruised. It takes patience, delicacy, and tact to win them back.

But if you tell them you can’t live without them, they may soften their hearts. If this trick won’t do, cook their favorite dish and keep on telling them how you only want the best for them.

Always see to it that you meet the needs of your Cancer lover.

Leo

A bit of flattery does it.

As lions, Leos love flattery and lavish tributes. A profuse admission of your mistakes with a declaration that you don’t deserve their love are likely to melt a Leo’s heart.

Shower them with gourmet chocolates and alluring flowers. This might do the trick as well as dressing well.

Leo may accept you back once they see that you’re trying hard enough to win their affection back.

Virgo

Watch your language.

Virgos don’t like foul language such as swears and curses. Try your best not to utter these words when you’re with them.

If you mess up with them, win them back by cleaning up your act. Virgos appreciate it when you’re being on time and take the effort of tidying up your home.

Don’t tend to be too emotional with them as they prefer dealing problems on a more logical way. A good book would be the best peace offering for Virgos.

Libra

Shower them with compliments.

Libras need constant verbal and physical assurance. When you ask for an apology, make it formal through spoken or written communication.

Remind them how serious you are in your relationship and that you are willing to change for the sake of having them back.

See to it that you keep your romance alive and never forget to shower them with constant compliments.

Scorpio

Demonstrate your devotion.

‘Walk your talk’ is a mantra you should keep reminding yourself with a Scorpio lover because they’re individuals who see that words are meaningless unless you act on them.

If you want to win them back, you have to take serious positive actions, like breaking a bad habit or giving up anything that challenges your relationship.

You will thank yourself when you take a Scorpio’s complaint seriously and make efforts to satisfy their concerns.

Sagittarius

A pet is an affectionate peace offering.

Being pet lovers, Sagittarians might be unable to resist when offered with a cute puppy or adorable kitten as peace offering.

You have to have an open mind in dealing with a Sagittarius lover because they don’t follow rules nor social conventions. Befriending their pals or becoming one of the gang is the easiest path to making up with them.

Capricorn

‘Honesty is the best policy’.

A Capricorn lover appreciates an honest and vocal partner. Spotting a lie is one of their strengths.

You better back off if you want to use lying as a tool for covering up your mess. As much as they hate lying, the Goats dislike teasing as well. They don’t want to play around.

If you’re serious in winning them back, admit your fault and do something that assures them of your love. Opening a savings account for your future together may pacify their desire of material security.

Aquarius

Be more open.

Aquarius lovers are open-minded. Discussing issues with them over coffee is a wise move since they love swapping ideas with others.

Try not to be emotional nor keep secrets with your Aquarius lover. They appreciate it more when you keep everything out into the open.

You will win the approval of your Aquarius lover if you’re more adventurous with them as well as follow their suggestions from time to time.

Pisces

Resist the urge to be possessive and demanding.

Pisces are sensitive and compassionate souls who can’t stand in seeing the agony of others. They are fragile beings who need to be handled with care.

In dealing with them, try not to be possessive and demanding. Pisces can’t breathe in a suffocating relationship.

Be more tender and loving in making up with them. Expressing your love on a regular basis even if there’s no occasion will serve your relationship best.

8 Small Things People Use To Judge Your Personality!

The human brain is hardwired to judge. This survival mechanism makes it very hard to meet someone without evaluating and interpreting their behavior.

While we tend to think that our judgments are based on the content of conversations and other obvious behaviors, the research says otherwise. In fact, the majority of our judgments are focused on smaller, subtler things, such as handshakes and body language. We often form complete opinions about people based solely on these behaviors.

1. HOW YOU TREAT WAITERS AND RECEPTIONISTS.

How you treat support staff is so indicative of your makeup that it has become a common interview tactic. By gauging how you interact with support staff on your way in and out of the building, interviewers get a sense for how you treat people in general. No matter how nice you are to the people you have lunch with, it’s all for naught if those people witness you behaving badly toward others.

2. HOW OFTEN YOU CHECK YOUR PHONE.

There’s nothing more frustrating than someone pulling out their phone mid-conversation. Doing so conveys a lack of respect, attention, listening skills, and willpower. Unless it’s an emergency, it’s wise to keep your phone holstered. Pulling out your phone during a conversation lowers both the quality and quantity of face-to-face interactions.

3. REPETITIVE, NERVOUS HABITS.

Touching your nails or face or picking at your skin typically indicates that you’re nervous, overwhelmed, and not in control. Research from the University of Michigan suggests that these nervous habits are indicative of a perfectionistic personality, and that perfectionists are more likely to engage in these habits when they’re frustrated or bored.

4. HOW LONG YOU TAKE TO ASK QUESTIONS.

Have you ever had a conversation with someone where they talked about themselves the entire time? The amount of time someone allows to pass before they take an interest in you is a strong personality indicator. People who only talk about themselves tend to be loud, self-absorbed “takers.” People who only ask questions and share little about themselves are usually quiet, humble “givers.” Those who strike a nice balance of give-and-take are reciprocators and good conversationalists.

5. YOUR HANDSHAKE.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, but your handshake can exude confidence or weakness. You can also determine a lot about how introverted or extroverted a person is based on the strength of their handshakes.

6. HANDWRITING.

According to one study, people with small, meticulous handwriting come off as shy, where as people with larger, sloppier handwriting appear more outgoing. They also found people who were careful about how their writing appeared and wrote slowly were more empathic and sensitive.

7. EYE CONTACT.

The key to eye contact is balance. While it’s important to maintain eye contact, doing so 100% of the time is perceived as aggressive and creepy. At the same time, if you only maintain eye contact for a small portion of the conversation, you’ll come across as disinterested, shy, or embarrassed. Studies show that maintaining eye contact for roughly 60% of a conversation strikes the right balance and makes you come across as interested, friendly, and trustworthy.

8. BRINGING IT ALL TOGETHER

Sometimes the little things in life make a big difference. It’s good to be ready for them, so that you can make a strong impression.

7 Behaviors People Who Were Unloved As Children Display In Their Adult Lives

Here Are 7 Behaviors People Who Were Unloved As Children Display In Their Adult Lives

1. LACK OF TRUST

Developing a sense of trust on an individual level requires a steady external environment. During childhood, it is essential that the people around us be relatively stable. We must feel safe and feel some semblance of emotional giving from others.

Without a stable and nurturing environment, the child may very well find it difficult to trust others. Of course, this underdevelopment makes just about every type of relationship difficult.

2. POOR EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE

Children learn to interpret emotions primarily through dyadic communication such as words and gestures. Both play a crucial role in helping the child articulate their feelings, manage fears, understand negative emotions, and develop resilience.

Without the ability to correctly interpret their emotional states, the child may never develop an essential life quality: emotional intelligence.

3. FEAR OF FAILURE

Tragically, children who grow up in a neglectful environment never develop a healthy sense of self-worth. On the other hand, a stimulating and loving environment can instill confidence and fortitude.

A child who is unloved almost certainly feels an absence of self-esteem; often manifesting as an unjustifiable sense of failure. Many otherwise intelligent people don’t live up to their potential only because they weren’t loved and embraced as children.

4. TOXIC RELATIONSHIPS

The human brain learns primarily through association and pattern recognition. In psychology and cognitive neuroscience, pattern recognition is “a cognitive process that matches information from a stimulus (the outside world) with information retrieved from memory.”

Regarding relationships, the unloved child will seek out the familiar; namely, toxic people.

5. INSECURITY AND ATTACHMENT

Every legitimate mental health expert will agree that a positive environment outside of the home helps – at least, to some degree – counteract the negativity found inside of the home.

But this is where things get complicated (and infuriating).

If a child can not rely on the very people who are responsible for ensuring his or her caregiving, how can he or she rely on anyone?

children

6. DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY

It is no surprise that unloved children often battle mental health issues.

Depression and anxiety stemming from (a) having experienced neglect, and (b) the inevitable complications that surface once the child ages, are commonly-cited experiences.

Depression and anxiety are the two most common mental health issues in the world. And the chances of an adult developing both increases substantially with a history of neglect.

7. OVERSENSITIVITY

We’ve all heard the term “Don’t take it personally.” On the whole, this is solid advice. People dealing with their own issues often project these issues onto others, and it behooves us to understand this human inclination.

However, for someone who had the misfortune of growing up in an unloving home, to not take things personally goes against the grain of their psyche. After all, the person must now contend with an intense fear of rejection – a byproduct of feeling insignificant and unloved.

“Stop being so sensitive” is a go-to phrase of abusers; ironically, this belittlement only heaps onto the person’s already fragile sensibilities.

Final Thoughts

“Overall, caregivers communicate love and nurturing through how they live their own lives.”

Everyone has their own way of showing love to children; but it is through showing love – regardless of the method – that sets the very foundation for the rest of their lives.

In an article named “Early Childhood Love And Nurturing,” written by three prominent child psychologists, the experts provide the following advice:

– Making it a priority to demonstrate love and affection for your children every day.

– Giving words of praise when earned (through chores, academic achievements, etc.)

– Showing a positive outlook and exhibiting emotional maturity (calmness, patience, etc.) creates a peaceful environment for children.

– As a parent or caregiver, feeling “consistently grouchy, irritable, negative, or sad” may hinder a child’s development.

– It is necessary “to get assistance … (through) a support system for encouragement and assistance.”Source

When Someone Really Cares About You

If someone really misses you, they will give you a call. If someone really wants you, they will make the effort to tell you. If someone really cares about you, they will always try and show you. If they don’t bother then they just aren’t worth your time.

“I think… if it is true that
there are as many minds as there
are heads, then there are as many
kinds of love as there are hearts.”
― Leo Tolstoy

“No one knows for certain how much impact they have on the lives of other people. Oftentimes, we have no clue. Yet we push it just the same.”
― Jay Asher

Cold Water Vs Warm Water: One of Them is Damaging to Your Health.

Most people reach for a cup of coffee or a cold cup of water right upon waking up. But, it turns out that in order to get the most benefits of drinking liquid in the morning you should enjoy a warm cup of water instead.

Multiple studies have shown that drinking warm water on an empty stomach offers a wide plethora of health benefits and is one of the best ways to jump-start your day for maximum productivity. Here is a short list outlining some of those health benefits:

1. IT RELIEVES PAIN

Drinking warm water has the ability to reduce swelling in the throat, which in turn provides a temporary pain relief. It indeed works wonders for irritated and dry throats, too.

This is especially useful during mornings when you wake up with a dry throat which causes you pain as you swallow. Amazingly, a notable improvement can be experienced after taking the first sip of warm water. Ultimately, warm water also soothes cramps by relaxing the muscles of the stomach.

2. IMPROVES BOWEL MOVEMENTS

A study done by the Journal of Neurogastroenterology and Motility has shown that up to 58 percent of patients suffering from achalasia, a condition in which the muscles of the lower part of the esophagus fail to relax, experienced notable improvement in their condition after drinking warm water.

Drinking a glass of warm water on an empty stomach is a good way to stimulate the colon to move the bowels easier. In addition, it sets the body for better absorption of food during the day.

3. IMPROVES CIRCULATION

Drinking warm water improves blood flow in the body`s circulatory system. It has been scientifically shown that when the body is exposed to warm temperature, the blood cell flow initially raises by a dramatic amount.

Then, it drops back to normal rate of blood flow and starts to gradually increase the longer it is exposed to the warmth. Warm water basically improves circulation by warming up the body from within.

4. WEIGHT LOSS

While staying well hydrated is generally beneficial for weight loss, it turns out that taking it warm is the best way to consume this liquid. In a study done by Journal of Natural Science, Biology and Medicine focused on a group of overweight women who were given large amount of warm water. At the end of the study, it was found that women had experienced a notable decrease in appetite, weight, and body mass index.

WHY IS DRINKING COLD WATER BAD FOR YOU?

Having a glass of cold water on a hot, summer day is one of the best feelings ever! It indeed helps cool down in a matter of seconds, but it does many other things to your body at the same time. Unfortunately, those things are anything but good for you.

  • Cold water constricts the blood vessels, which in turn reduces hydration
  • Drinking cold water causes the body to work hard to digest food as cold liquids solidify the fats in the bloodstream
  • The body expands energy when you drink cold water in order to heat it up and use it
  • Cold water forms excess mucus in the respiratory system, leading to congestion and higher risk of infections like throat infection.

This Is How To Find Balance, According To Your Zodiac Sign.

INCE THE DAWN OF TIME, PEOPLE HAVE BEEN USING ASTROLOGY AS A MEANS OF FINDING PURPOSE AND GUIDANCE IN THEIR LIVES. Even today, with the many technological advances our society has witnessed, astrology is an invaluable resource for those seeking empowerment and self-discovery.

In keeping with this age-old practice, today let’s take a look at what each zodiac sign must do to find peace of mind.

ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19)

Those who fall under the Zodiac sign of Aries tend to be passionate and confident. At the same time, they can be short-tempered and impulsive.

If this describes you, focus on achieving balance by finding time to relax and meditate. Work on decluttering your professional and personal life by simplifying your routine, home and workspace.

TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20)

Tauruses are generally warm, kind-hearted people. They can, however, become rigid, stubborn and possessive when things don’t go their way.

If this is you, achieve balance by spending more time thinking about how your actions affect others. Make a conscious effort to truly listen to others’ ideas before you speak up in support of your own.

GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20)

Geminis are highly intelligent and upbeat people who often find themselves surrounded by tension.

If you are a Gemini, balance that tension by learning to control your nerves – perhaps with the help of meditation or through the use of a herbal tea.

CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22)

Cancers are very caring and protective. Those attributes, while great, can become overbearing to the point where they manifest in clinginess.

Cancers ought to take care and find ways of nurturing themselves that don’t require clinging onto another person, place or situation. Yoga – or any other activity that focuses on the present, inner self – can go a long way towards achieving this.

LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22)

While Leos enjoy incredible boldness and creativity, these attributes can lead to bossy behavior and self-indulgence.

If you are a Leo, balance these two aspects of your personality through development of your listening skills. Focus on hearing people out and giving their ideas and thoughts a chance. As far as your tendency towards self-indulgence goes, counter this by spending time listening to and caring for others’ needs.

VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22)

Virgos are all about the analytics. This can lead to them being perfectionists that overthink details of every little situation.

Virgos ought to balance this out by getting outside of their heads more often. When possible, solve problems mentally while taking walks outside instead of sitting in front of a computer screen.

Virgos also need to pay attention to their inner dialogue and watch out for overly self-critical language.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22)

Libras are very idealistic, easy-to-please people. Unfortunately, this can render them gullible and easily taken advantage of.

If you’re a Libra, make a conscious effort to stand up for yourself more often. When negotiating situations, take micro-risks by asking for small things the other person may not have offered right off the bat. This will help you balance your easy-going nature with practicality and confidence.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21)

Scorpios are incredibly passionate, which can sometimes boil over into obsessiveness and jealousy.

If this is you, balance these two sides of your personality out by practicing deep breathing techniques whenever you feel your emotions getting the better of you.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21)

Those who fall under the Zodiac sign of Sagittarius are very optimistic, to the point where they forget that the universe doesn’t always reward such thinking.

If your Zodiac sign is Sagittarius, make two sets of goals and predictions – one optimistic set that you’d love to see unfold and a second realistic goal. This will help you grow accustomed to being satisfied with reality.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19)

Capricorns are incredibly practical, which often boils over into pessimism.
Such individuals ought to find balance by making an effort to write down bright moments of each day. By doing so, Capricorns will find that they are able to see the positivity in things they previously would have overlooked as negative.

AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18)

Aquarians are incredibly free-spirited, a trait that can make them seem distant and unpredictable to loved ones.

If this is you, find balance by making an effort to communicate your thoughts, feelings and plans with loved ones. Allowing them to feel included in your free-spirited nature will go a long way.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20)

Pisceans are very sensitive, which makes them great empaths but also has the effect of making them overly soft and vague in times in stress.
To balance this out, Pisceans should figure out what they can do to be less stressed out. This will help them escape the cycle of feeling like a victim of circumstance.
