New Year, New You. Pisces Birthday Resolutions
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 Pisces resolve to make the most of?

Now what Birthday Resolutions might suit a caring, compassionate Pisces? Well, I won’t be suggesting that you resolve to go with the flow as most of you do that, though a rigid Pisces might like to learn to get relaxed about change in order to express their true Pisces nature.
A Piscean without a creative outlet is like a fish out of water so if your creativity is stifled at work find ways to unleash it in other areas of your life. Make A Birthday Resolution to learn to dance, attend a New Age retreat, learn about aromatherapy, take up photography or anything else that allows your creative and spiritual nature to express itself.
Another sensible Birthday Resolution might be to become comfortable with setting boundaries so that you tell people what you will and will not tolerate and when you need time to recharge your batteries.
Some Pisceans can be rather gullible so make it a Birthday Resolution to develop your intuition and ability to read people in order to avoid being taken advantage of. Your ability to read people is impressive so instead of blithely ignoring those warning bells you get tune into them and take time out before reaching a decision.
Like fellow Jupiter ruled sign, Sagittarius, you think time is elastic, so can find yourself always running late, so a Birthday Resolution to develop some time management skills might be useful.
You can be a little irresponsible when it comes to money, so shadow a Capricorn, Virgo or Scorpio friend for a day to learn and model their financial skills, you might also use them as a role model when it comes to time management.
Other Birthday Resolutions that you might care to explore are ensuring that you get enough fun into your life and making sure that you spend plenty of time with positive people.
