“Don’t fashion me into a maiden that needs saving from a dragon. I am the dragon.”
Life can be overwhelming. So it’s not a stretch to say that ALL of us need a little pick-me-up once in awhile. But not all of us are inspired by the same sentiments.
The same we all have different “love languages“, we have different “inspo languages” as well. Some of us may need to hear that everything is going to be okay, while others need to hear they’re not alone. How do you know what you respond to best in your time of need?
Once again we look to the stars. Here is the quote you need to hear to power through the tough times, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Aries, you are a force to be reckoned with and love being first. So when you’re feeling down you need something that will help you find that inner strength and power you know exists inside of you.
Your quote: “Do not tame the wolf inside you just because you’ve met someone who doesn’t have the courage to handle you.”
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus, as an earth sign you are grounded and practical and know with all your heart that hard work pays off. Which is why you’ve never backed down from a challenge. But when you’re feeling low, you need to be reminded that the fruits of your labor have not been done in vain and will pay off in the end.
Your quote: “Strong women don’t have attitudes. We have standards.” Stay true to yourself and know that it will be worth the wait.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
As a Gemini you are versatile, quick-witted and can go from funny to serious in the blink of an eye. When you start doubting yourself (all your “selves”) you need to be reminded that there is strength in your many, many sides.
Your quote: “She was caught between a strong mind, a sensitive heart, and a passion more wild than a hurricane.” Never let them tame you!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
As a Cancer you are deeply intutive and sympathetic. In fact, when a friend needs help you’re usually their first call. So when you’re the one who needs a little support you can get down on yourself quite easily. What you need to remember is that you are loved and you WILL get through this.
Your quote: “Don’t give up now. Chances are your best kiss, your hardest laugh, and your greatest day are still yet to come.”
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Tenacious, gregarious and fierce, the fiery Leo is a hard one to tear down. Your confidence usually carries you through any situation, but even the most confident person can feel down sometimes. You need to be reminded that you are not alone, you don’t have to be strong all the time, and it’s okay to cry once in awhile.
Your quote: “So many strong women began as a broken girl.”
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgo, you are loyal, kind and have a keen-eye for what works and what doesn’t. But your shrewd anaytical skills can sometimes lead to an overcritical analysis of yourself. When in doubt you need to remember that the choices you make are grounded in your experience and deep wisdom. You ARE ENOUGH, so have faith in YOURSELF.
Your quote: “And one day she discovered that she was fierce, and strong, and full of fire, and that not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears.” – Mark Anthony.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libras: peaceful, fair and always searching for harmony. If you ran the world we would all be better off because of it. When Libra gets down it’s usually do to an injustice, a feeling of isolation, or a loss of hope. You need to be reminded that you can’t fix everything, life is not fair, and that as long as you are at peace with your decisions that is enough.
Your quote: “She is at a place in her life where peace is her priority and negativity cannot exist.”
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Oh Scorpio, perhaps the most mysterious of all the signs. You are resourceful, brave, passionate, and stubborn which makes you a force of nature. For all these reasons you are usually the one leading the pack, but when you start doubting yourself it can be hard to recover. You must remember that everything you feel — the good, the bad and the ugly — is what makes you so strong. Do not let anyone make you feel otherwise.
Your quote: “She was life itself. Wild and free. Wonderfully chaotic. A perfectly put together mess.”
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Sagittarius, you are generous and charismatic with an immense love of freedom. So much so nothing and no one can hold you down. But you also like moving at the speed of light and sometimes life doesn’t allow that. So when you’re feeling low you need to tap into that depth of optimism that has gotten you this far. Your strength lies in the light you shine on this world. Use it!
Your quote: “That was her magic, she could still see the sunset even on those darkest days.”
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorn, you are a master of self-control. In other words, you usually have your shit together. You’re responsible and disciplined and like others to be the same, which is why you make a great leader. When things get tough it can be a shock to your usually-confident-and-organized demeanor. You need to remember that not all days are perfect, getting dirty is just a part of life, and it’s your resilience, not perfection, that makes you strong.
Your quote: “It didn’t matter that she fell apart, it was how she put herself back together.”
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
As an Aquarius you’re the best of both worlds: immensely thoughtful but fun-loving and energetic. You love fighting for causes you believe in, are highly independent , free spirited and love to use that intellectual mind of yours. But when you’re struggling it can like drowning. While the future is usually so clear for your visionary mind, it suddenly feels bleak. You’re strength lies in your fearless ability to reinvent yourself and change with the tides like the water sign you are.
Your quote: “You may have to lose who you were to find out who you are.”
Pisces (February 19 To March 20)
Pisces: a gentle, wise and compassionate soul. Your selfless nature makes you a valuable ally and friend. But sometimes your intuition and empathy for others can take a toll. So much so it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders. When you’re feeling low or like there’s nothing left to hold on to, you must remind yourself that you are stronger than your kind demeanor implies. You are not one to be underestimated.
