Astrologically the best time to make your New Year’s Resolutions isn’t New Year’s Day as many of us understand it. It is our own New Year’s Day; the day when the Sun returns to the place that it was at the time of our birth otherwise known as our birthday. This is a time when many of us do review what we have done to date and make a commitment to ourselves that (if things are not as we wish them to be) this year will be different. On our birthday we often decide how we want things be in the coming year and if we choose to make a resolution to accomplish something we are more likely to succeed than if we make a resolution at a time that has less personal significance for us.
Now when it comes to making birthday resolutions we are more likely to be successful if we pick resolutions that fit in with who really are as opposed to going for one that we think we ‘should’ make.
Why not resolve to become more like to like your Sun sign? Why not pick a few of those wonderful Sun sign strengths and character traits that you have waiting for you to develop, and develop some of them further? Why not play to your strengths and make some resolutions and goals that you will make you feel fulfilled when you hit them? How do I know that you will feel fulfilled when you become more like your Sun sign? Take a look at the blog manifesto for the answer to that one!
Developing your Sun sign strengths will make for more lasting results than trying to stick to a New Year’s resolution that is at odds with you really are. Let’s face it Aries is going to find sticking to a resolution to be less impatient much harder than resolving to be more assertive or to set up their own business. That’s not to say that developing your Sun sign strengths is always going to be easy, sometimes it will be rather challenging, but the results will be both satisfying and long lasting.
So with this in mind I am making a few Birthday Resolution suggestions based on your Sun sign. There is one Bithday Resolution suggestion that applies to all the Sun signs and that’s to love your Sun sign. Be proud to be a member of Team Aries, Team Taurus, Team Gemini, Team Cancer, Team Leo, Team Virgo, Team Libra, Team Scorpio, Team Sagittarius, Team Capricorn, Team Aquarius or Team Pisces. Have a look at some of the forums that are devoted to one specific Sun sign in order to connect with people who are the same Sun sign as you. Find out what makes them (and you) fabulous!
Rather than suggest you make Birthday Resolutions to deal with your Sun sign’s negative traits I’m going to suggest that you make New Year’s Resolutions that will bring out your Sun sign’s positive traits. The more you express those the less likely you are to express those nuisance negative traits that hold you back.
So what talents and traits might Leo resolve to make the most of?
New Year, New You. Birthday Resolutions For Leo
Leo when being true to their nature is usually full of fun and confidence. They are usually a natural leader too, so if you are stuck in a support role rather than being centre stage you need to find other activities where you can be the leader. You also need plenty of praise and appreciation so a wise Birthday Resolution might be to identify, befriend and surround yourself with people who really do rate you as highly as you rate yourself.
Leos are naturally sociable souls so making a Birthday Resolution to meet more people (unless you have enough high quality friends already) would serve you well. Most Leos blossom when surrounded by friends or with a close friend so if you are short of friends make a promise to yourself to get some. There will be some posts coming up on choosing friends that are good for you in the coming year.
When it comes to friends most of us do our best to fit in with them and sometimes (if they are underachievers) that can hold us back. We can end up in a position where we don’t want to be more successful than them in case we lose them as friends. Make a Birthday Resolution to upgrade your friends if they’re holding you back!
As Leo is a natural mentor you might also make a Birthday Resolution to bring some other people on. If you are good at sports you might like to do some coaching at your local sports club. You might even like to devote some more time to playing sports in order to get even fitter.
Not only does Leo like to be fit in terms of health; they like to be fit in terms of appearance as well, so any Birthday Resolution to look even better would work well for you. Whether it’s losing weight or getting a new hair style you’ll be able to see this resolution through with ease.
Leos also love acting so making a promise to yourself that this the year that you’ll learn to act, sign up to become a film extra or join your local amateur dramatic society is a promise that you are likely to keep.
Leo is happiest when being creative so if you’re starved of opportunities to be creative make a Birthday Resolution to create plenty of opportunities to unleash that Leo creativity.
