There are certain lessons we all need to learn in order to truly accept our life’s purpose.
Finding your life purpose isn’t for the weak or simple minded. It’s more than just looking at your astrological chart and finding your north node.
True meaning in life comes from walking a path that hard and rich experiences that pertain to your Sun, Moon, and rising zodiac signs.
As we get older, there are certain life lessons we come to adopt: If you don’t say please and thank you, you’re rude and if you tailgate the person behind you, you’re going to end up receiving a few choice words we are not allowed to publish on this site.
But, what life lesson drives you as a sign? Maybe you don’t have a motto that you live by.
In his next book, Untaught Truths of Adulthood, author Alexander J.A. Cortes wrote out 303 life lessons we ALL can learn from.
From paying off your student loans before they pile up to all the math you learned in high school being useless, Cortes touched upon pretty much every life lesson we can learn throughout our journeys around the sun.
Maybe you already have a life lesson that you believe drives your sign. If not, get ready to connect with a life lesson that may hit too close to home – Yes, Leo, your life lesson may or may not be to stop being so lazy.
It is important to remember that you really can’t have it all in life, but you can make the most of what you do have through trial and error.
Learn from your mistakes and faults. Be the change that drives your passions. Who knows, maybe Cortes is onto something here and you end up tattooing your life lesson across your forehead (Just as a simple reminder).
Here how to explore finding your life purpose by the zodiac sign you were born with, per astrology:
Aries (March 21- April 19)
Aries, “Competition is only honestly competitive when it’s your life or your reputation. Everything else is dress-up.” You know you can be overly competitive and live for racing through life. But, what are you truly looking to be first in?
If it is your own life, then go for it. If you are trying to be the first in everyone else’s life, forget it. Only you can outrun yourself. Stay active, go outside and try not to run faster than the person next to you. Instead, trying running faster than you did the day before.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus, your life lesson is, “Wealth is waking up whenever you want. Happiness is looking forward to waking up when you go to bed.” Don’t let money make your world turn.
There is way more to life that material objects.
Taurus, you actually have two life mottos – your other one is “Money does NOT equal happiness.”
While getting presents and having a job that brings in that cash flow can be beneficial, it is not the end all be all. In fact, you would be happier with no money, surrounded by the people that you love.
Gemini (May 21- June 20)
Gemini, “A sense of humor will keep you young,” and boy, is that the truth. You already have the social skills down – you know you are an expert communicator.
But, when things start to get too playful, you turn to the serious side. Let your people skills guide you and don’t be afraid to crack a few jokes here and there.
A sense of humor will keep you young. Maybe you’ll develop some laugh lines, but those are the only type of wrinkles you’ll want to have when you get older.
Cancer (June 21- July 22)
Cancer, you need to live by the motto that, “When someone is being self-destructive, don’t try to stop them. It’s contagious.”
This motto is a little counter intuitive because Cancer, you are the self-destructive one.
Don’t let yourself be so insecure that the others around you start to doubt themselves and their relationship with you.
Your vibe attracts your tribe, so don’t let your tribe be full of self-deprecating, insecure ladies who compete with each other.
Love who you are and what you have first and foremost.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, your life lesson is simple: “People are lazy.” Yes, you are lazy. It is okay to be lazy to a fault; we all wish we could just have those days where we lay in bed all day, not caring about the world outside.
But, you tend to do that too often. Get outside and enjoy the rays. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone! When in doubt, call up your friends and force them to take you out.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, the life lesson you need to live by is, “Those who never take vacations will never ultimately be fulfilled by their work.”
You’re all work and no play attitude makes it hard for you to let go. With summer in sight, remember life is too short to spend it anywhere but under the sun.
Don’t be afraid to let loose this year and stop being so hard on yourself. Go sip a martini on the beach somewhere.
Libra (September 23- October 22)
Libra, “Don’t waste time explaining yourself to people who don’t understand context.” People are going to question your peaceful nature.
If someone bombards you with questions pertaining to why you are the way you are, then they haven’t gotten to truly know you yet. It’s okay to step away from confrontation, and you know that.
This makes you a step ahead of the game.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio, your life lesson to live by is, “Don’t choose to do anything you hate, regardless of the upside in doing it.”
You love to experience life to the fullest and while this can be a positive trait, you need to be careful that you aren’t doing something just because it is the “right thing to do.”
Stick to the passions that drive you and make you happy. Don’t do anything because you feel forced to.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, “When in doubt, be calm,” is your life lesson of the day. You know that you take on more than you can handle in order to please everyone around you.
Stop juggling the world in your hands and slow down. You know it can be hard to just breathe and see what the next day brings, but your impatient nature can make this difficult.
Relax, calm down, everything will work out.
Capricorn (December 22- January 19)
Capricorn, “You become the people you spend the most energy with,” is your life lesson.
You are a family and friend oriented individual. You love to be around those you treasure most.
But, remember that you should spend the most time with yourself. Take a step back from the family drama and pamper yourself.
Surround yourself with your positive energy and the rest with follow.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius, the life lesson you need to hear is, “The only real knowledge is learned by experience and proven by practice.”
You tend to over analyze pretty much anything. While you are an excellent thinker and problem solver, remember that not all knowledge can be learned from a textbook.
You also weren’t born with all the knowledge in the universe. On your next journey around the sun, learn from your daily experiences and the people around you.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces, your overly trusting nature makes the life lesson,“People that lie to themselves will lie to you,” your perfect match. You let anyone in too quickly.
You can be too trusting to a fault and that is why you need to seek out the genuine side of a person before telling them your deepest darkest secrets. If they can’t be true to themselves, they can’t be true to you.
