Every sign in the zodiac has a little something to learn. We’ve given each a one-word mantra to help them grow where they need to most.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19): "Slow"

As the fastest sign in the zodiac, Aries need to remind themselves that patience is a virtue.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20): “Give”

Tauruses are blessed with expensive taste, which they can parlay into giving back to those around them.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20): “Quiet”

Peace and quiet don’t come naturally to the zodiac’s motormouth twins, so it’s something they really have to practice and embrace.

Cancer (Jun 21 - July 22): “Open”

Self-protective Cancers are great at building a fortress to keep out intruders, but they need to occasionally lower a drawbridge to let in friends.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22): “You”

You have to love yourself to love others, and Leos are especially strong on the first part. Try to think of the person sitting across from you at dinner.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22): “Gravity”

Virgos are such perfectionists, it can be hard for them to tolerate the chaos of life—but that’s essentially what life is. Accept its nature, and you can hone it.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 21): “Decide”

Libras can see the good in all sides of an argument, but they can only move forward once they make a choice. Eeny meeny… 

Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 21): “Release”

No one holds onto a grudge longer than a Scorpio, and sometimes, you have to free yourself from the weight of your own baggage. 

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21): “Sugar”

The Sagittarius is wise and honest, but they must pair their insights with tact to be truly effective in all of their relationships.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19): “Play”

All work and no play is never a sustainable business strategy, even for the industrious Capricorn.

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18): “Humble”

While Aquariuses are incredibly brilliant, it can come with an edge that must be tempered with humility.

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20): “Solid”

Empathetic Pisces can easily take on the priorities of those around them and must remember to hold firm to whatever is truly important to them.
