The Best Motivational Quote for You, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
From step-by-step wedding planning to hot home decor trends and bangin’ brownie recipes, Pinterest has all our most pressing needs on lock. It’s a place of infinite wonder, with a huge helping of motivational quotes thrown in. Seriously, is there a single Pinterest feed that’s not sprinkled with inspirational sayings from various historical and cultural leaders? While they can definitely veer into majorly corny territory, there’s something sweetly comforting about these motivational missives. To celebrate the ubiquitous quotes, we thought we’d hook each zodiac sign up with a Pinterest-worthy saying to pin for those times when you’re feeling down.
aries (march 21 – april 19)
Bold, fearless, and more than a little impulsive, you’re all about going with your gut, Aries. And just when you thought you couldn’t love Tina Fey any more, she goes and totally *gets* you with a single sentence, completely validating your penchant for leaping headfirst into the unknown.
taurus (april 20 – may 20)
There’s a certain peace and calm that pervades your life, Taurus. You crave stability and simplicity, which means you’ve become quite adept at making the most of what you have. You’re not one to constantly seek new experiences out of jealousy or impatience, and Neil Barringham’s twist on the “grass is greener” metaphor couldn’t speak more fully to your ability to be comfortable in your own skin.
gemini (may 21 – june 20)
Gemini, you love learning. As a master communicator and perpetual student, you’re always seeking out new information before skipping along to a new interest. Marc Jacobs’ quote speaks to that boundless enthusiasm in the most positive way — there’s so much for you to do and so much for you to love, so never feel guilty for your curious nature.
cancer (june 21 – july 22)
You’re ruled by the moon, so there’s a definite back-and-forth to your emotions, Cancer. You often over-think things and can let your nurturing, sensitive nature get in the way of making necessary changes in your life. Suzy Kassem’s quote can serve as a reminder to continually work on achieving your personal goals no matter what (perceived) criticism you may encounter.
leo (july 23 – august 22)
Duh, Steve Martin. This one kind of feels like a no-brainer, right, Leo? You shine brightest in the spotlight, and have no problem taking up your rightful space in this world. No one can ignore you, and honestly, who would want to? You’re good at everything you try, and it’s a pleasure to watch you grow.
virgo (august 23 – september 22)
We know how tough it can be for you to keep going in the face of so much adversity, Virgo, but we commend your vigilant desire to fight for what you believe in. Hillary Clinton knows a thing or two about adversity, and she’s just the person to keep in mind when you’re feeling doubtful of your place in the world.
libra (september 23 – october 22)
All is right in your world when there’s a happy equilibrium for the people you care about, Libra, and your generous heart plays a huge part in that. As the diplomat of the zodiac, you’re constantly seeking balance — not just for yourself, but for those around you. DVF’s quote is a powerful reminder to keep doing you.
scorpio (october 23 – november 21)
Things can often get dark in your scene, Scorpio. Your intensity and passion sometimes makes for a seriously moody experience. And sometimes the only way to snap out of it is a big glass of wine and a heavy swipe of lipstick. And if anyone can speak to this manner of motivation, it’s definitely Liz Taylor!
sagittarius (november 22 – december 21)
You and Walt Whitman seem to have a lot in common, huh, Sag? You too “tramp a perpetual journey,” always seeking out exciting adventures and new information. You’ve got an incurable case of wanderlust, and your goal-oriented mind makes sure you continue on your path with an optimistic energy we admire.
capricorn (december 22 – january 19)
‘Ye may not be a Capricorn himself, but his intense drive to succeed definitely speaks to your most fundamental cosmic cravings, Cap. You’re driven, stable, and committed, no matter how long it takes or how many rungs you have to climb. Slow and steady wins the race, right?
aquarius (january 20 – february 18)
You take on every aspect of life with a pure rebel’s heart, Aquarius, which means you’re often riding solo on your journeys. But you don’t mind (and neither does Tom Ford!). In fact, your fierce individualism makes you one of the most inspired thinkers of the zodiac, on a constant quest for ultimate truth in all you do.
pisces (february 19 – march 20)
There’s no doubt you’re super smart, Pisces, and your strong mind comes from your active imagination. You’ve got your head in the clouds in the best way possible — your dreams make you the most compassionate sign of the zodiac, and this energetic empathy is extra special in a world full of tough situations.
