(March 21st to April 19th)
Say yes. When your friends ask you to go to that concert, say yes. When your mom asks you to go to that art show, say yes. Get out and do the things your broken heart is persuading you to say no to. Don’t let heartbreak ruin it for you.
(April 20th to May 21st)
Treat yourself. This is the time to do the things you want to do just because you want to do them. You want that new sweater? Get it. You want a boozey brunch that costs a quarter of your paycheck? Have it. Spoil yourself. It won’t make heartbreak go away, but it will make it feel tolerable.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
Find a release for your energy. Whether it’s going to a kickboxing class or running until your lungs feel like they’re going to collapse, do something that exhausts you but in a way that makes you feel like you’re actually doing something instead of just sitting on your couch eating ice cream.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
Surround yourself with loved ones. Your broken heart is trying to tell you, you want to be alone, but don’t isolate yourself. Your family and friends are there to comfort you, and they will, but only if you let them.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
Dive head first into that new project you’ve been putting off. Heartbreak shouldn’t make your dreams wait. Don’t wait. Begin. Start planning, doing, and executing, and you’ll feel a million times better.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
Go to the one place that calms you, the place where you feel at peace. Your mind is racing and all you can think about is your broken heart. You need to get away from the places where those thoughts are happening. Go somewhere you won’t think about your broken heart.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
Learn to be okay on your own. Don’t start searching on every online dating app to find someone to fill your evenings, don’t start looking for someone else to fill your time. Concentrate on you. Learn what you like, learn what you don’t like. Learn how to be alone and not feel lonely.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
Fight for the cause you care the most about. You’re passionate and smart, and you’re someone who can create change for the better. Find the cause you’re most passionate about and help. Your broken heart doesn’t have to distract you from the things you care for deeply.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
Pack your bags and get away. Explore somewhere you’ve never been even if it’s just around the corner, even if it’s just for the weekend. Get lost somewhere and maybe you’ll end up finding yourself.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
Learn from your mistakes, but also forgive yourself for making them. Begin to build your life moving forward. Concentrate on the things you know truly matter. Don’t hate yourself for falling. Love yourself enough to get back up and try again.
(January 21st to February 18th)
Spend some time by yourself. Don’t feel like you have to distract yourself by constantly doing things with other people. You’re allowed to do things on your own. You’re allowed to stay home, to get lunch or dinner alone, to watch a movie by yourself. You don’t have to feel like your heartbreak is disabling you just because you want to be by yourself. It’s okay if you don’t want to be social right now.
(February 19th to March 20th)
Find inspiration. Use your creative energy now more than ever. It’s okay to feel sad, and it’s okay to let those feelings out. It’s okay if some of those sad feelings still feel like they’re there even after you thought you purged them. Let your feelings inspire you. Let heartbreak inspire you, and create beauty from it like you do with everything else in life.
