Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You deserve to learn that even though the sun is bright, days are blaring with excitement, and ocean waves are crashing onto your soft, newly tanned skin—there will be times that you feel not so right. There will be clouds in your mind even though the weather is brighter than ever, but you deserve to learn that this is okay. You have the highest highs, but recognize that this comes with the cost of the lowest lows. Don’t feel discouraged, but embrace them as a way of teaching yourself about the ups and downs of life.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You deserve to learn that love, passion, and adventure stem from exploring new things. Summer is the time to venture out and discover all that you haven’t already accomplished for yourself. This means stirring things up within the typically mundane. Learn that it’s not just the vacations and outings that you get to experience new opportunities—you can do it in your everyday life as well.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You deserve to learn that you can do absolutely nothing and still enjoy yourself. Simply walking through a park with no agenda can lead to bursts of creative ideas and the opportunity to discover aspects about yourself that you didn’t already know. Summer gives you the chance to relax, something you may not entirely be accustomed to. One the days you have nothing to do, stick to that plan and see what happens.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You deserve to learn the importance of patience. Just because the sunburn on your skin is taking longer than usual to fade away, doesn’t mean life is ruined for you. Having patience will teach you that good things come to those who work hard and wait to see the results because they don’t always come right after. Don’t suddenly switch paths because it’s taking too long to get to where you want to be. This summer will show you that there are rewards for those who continue to work hard even when results aren’t apparent yet.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You deserve to learn the power of deeply understanding those around you. Summer is the opportunity to spend time with those you love and you should do just that, not just because they make you feel good, but because you can make them feel just the same. Listen to their deepest desires, fears, and secrets. Success and growth don’t only come from self-awareness, it comes from awareness of others as well.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You deserve to learn how to be spontaneous. That a flat tire and canceled date may actually lead to something far greater than what you had originally planned in your head. A breakup and lost job will actually put forth a new path that you may have never imagined. Let summer take the reins for once and follow its guidance.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You deserve to learn the importance of being alone and developing a sense of self without the help of others. You may find yourself surrounded by friends and family a lot this summer, but maybe taking some time for you will give you the advantage you’ve always needed. When alone, you get a taste of freedom to be a person that is sometimes taken away by the pressures of others. Go to the beach and watch the waves on your free time, write in a journal or read a book in solace. You will be grateful for it.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You deserve to learn the art of your emotions. You have always been one to express yourself freely to others, especially when you feel so much. This summer, give yourself the opportunity to feel those powerful emotions and create something out of them. Draw, write, take photos—make the time to be creative so not only do you feel your emotions, but make them into something beautiful. Everyone loves to hear your analytical observations of how you are feeling, but it would be so lovely if they got to see it.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You deserve to learn the importance of traveling. You have always been curious, outgoing and determined to get to where you want to be. The summer gives you a chance to explore new cities, countries or even friends that you may have cut all ties with in the past. You are a sign that thrives when change occurs, so it’s about time you make that change for yourself. Take a break from your life and get out there to explore the world. You deserve it.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You deserve to learn how to completely let loose, to give in to your deepest desires and to let go of control. As successful as you’ve been this year in achieving what you feel you are supposed to, give yourself time this summer to really feel what it is you have been craving. Eat ice cream while walking down the beach, escape your job for a few days to hang out with a lover or miss a few deadlines to work on personal projects. It’s okay. The greatest memories are those that are unplanned, that are determined by your heart instead of your head. Listen to it.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You deserve to learn how to express and stand up for yourself. You are highly intelligent, while also deeply empathetic. This gives you a powerful insight that you sometimes don’t share in consideration to another’s feelings. But, you need to share those thoughts with the rest of the world. This summer may be static for you, but only because it’s your turn to start making the moves and telling others what you want out of life. When you feel something, say it. When you want something, ask for it. It’s your turn to decide how your few months will plan out.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You deserve to learn the importance of handling and taking on criticism from others. You may have a lot of projects and plans this summer, but maybe getting the help of others is crucial in order to finish them. Ask friends to read through your stories, or get a co-worker to overlook your finished task. Don’t just listen, but actually take on some of the ideas they suggest. You have such a knack for empathizing and understanding others, maybe it’s time to use that as an advantage in the work you compile this summer.
