We live in a society of selfishness. Instead of focusing on bettering other people, one should first always look inwards. Yet we often get lost in what we think we should be doing, and forget this. Buddha taught us “a generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.”
Aries March 21 – April 19
A person who goes through their life without any drama never made it far in history. Anyone who ever did anything great didn’t hide away. Remember that and don’t stop yourself from doing something simply because you think it’s impossible.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Calling someone else fat won’t make you skinnier. There’s no reason to hurt others for the sole reason of distinguishing whether you stand above, next to or below them. And if you do insult people, karma will get you in the end.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
If we’re not supposed to have midnight snacks, why is there a light in the fridge? Apparently eating in the middle of the night is bad for you but rules, as they say, are made to be broken. Go now – those leftovers are calling to you.
Cancer June 21 – July 22
Only a life lived for others, as well as yourself, is a life worthwhile. It’s understandable that most of us students are dirt poor, but stop being fucking selfish for once in your life. Why bother doing charity work if it’s purely a form of self-indulgence?
Leo July 23 – August 22
Telling someone they’re stupid won’t make you smarter. There will always be people who try to make others feel inferior to them just so they can make it through the day but hey, we don’t have to tolerate their bullshit.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
You can fix a mirror, but the cracks will always be there. You can tell yourself you’re not broken-hearted or you don’t care. You can lie to the people around you, but there’s obviously a problem when you’re lying to yourself. Realize this and fix it.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Expect nothing. Live frugally on surprises. When we sit around waiting for everything to fall in our laps, life becomes boring. The best moments we experience are those that we don’t expect to happen.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
When you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done. When you were babies and wanted to get to the other side of the room, we had to teach ourselves to walk. Yet, as we get older we forget how to do this and become dependent on the rules of society to guide us. Set yourself free on purpose.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
The greatest pleasure in life is doing what other people say you can’t do. And as long as you don’t hurt anyone, why not? There’s no point in tiptoeing through your whole life only to get to the end safe and sound.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Only when you have lost everything are you truly free to do anything. In North America we think happiness is driven by money and success. However, some of the most content people in the world can be the poorest. Pay attention to what’s really important.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Work towards solving the problems in front of you instead of those too far away to see. Sometimes we are so busy focusing on what we’re trying to accomplish in the far future that we don’t properly prioritize all the little things. You don’t have to decide what you want to be when you grow up right now.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Challenges exist to make life exciting. Someone once said to overcome them is to make life meaningful. Instead of avoiding your problems, punch them straight in the face. You will thank yourself later.
