Start Something New

Want to make a new habit? Here’s how the different stars do it

By MWB Desk

Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

To start a new habit, Aries will benefit from leaning into your childlike excitement. Rather than trying to force yourself into what you think you should be doing, pick habits that make you smile. In other words, make it fun and it’ll be easier to stick to.

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

Taureans are determined and hardworking, but also love their creature comforts. They’re more likely to stick to a habit when they can come home to coziness. Plan out a reward system, or make it comfy, and they’ll pick up the habit in no time.

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

This mercurial and talkative sign thrives on clear communication and intellectual challenges. To build a new habit and stick to it, you’ll have to talk it through, and change it up every once in a while to keep things interesting.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Cancer’s famous moods are often the result of avoidant behavior, which is why to try something new, and to stick to it, routine is king. The comfort of familiar patterns can create a sense of security that lets the crabby star sign get into a habit.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Leo’s legendary need for the spotlight means solo activities will be hard to build a habit from. Whether it’s company on a diet or a fitness routine, or even a reading goal, grab a buddy to cheer you on, and you will crush all your goals.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Virgo’s famous organizational skills are no joke. Your sign likes checking off little boxes, creating shared Google calendars, and ensuring your workspace perfectly fits your needs. If there’s a new habit you need to pick up, it’s probably self-care. Approach it with the same attention to detail and you’re gold.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Libra is represented by the scales, and this sign needs balance to feel complete. If it’s exercise you need, pencil in time for rest, and if it’s a cerebral habit you want to pick up, like reading, balance it out with some exercise. When you find that equilibrium, you’ll stick to your new routine.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Scorpio has a reputation for emotional intensity, and the rumors are true. Meditative rituals should help you get in the zone for whatever new activity you want to get into.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

Sagittarius loves knowledge and is one of the most academic signs, so you do well with habits that involve learning new skills. Tap into the cornucopia of online courses to build your next superpowers, and you’ll have mastered a new habit in no time.

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

Capricorn is a very hard worker and loves creating and maintaining new habits — anything to keep moving forward. If there’s one sign who’s got this covered, it’s the driven sea goat.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

Aquarius is the humanitarian of the zodiac and will not just sit at home while the world at large needs help. Your sign will have the most success with choosing habits that help your community, so look for a project with meaning.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

Pisces is one of the most creative signs of the zodiac and will benefit from picking up a new, artistic hobby. If it’s a fitness hobby you need to develop, think of an out-of-the-box approach for it.
