Many of us read our horoscopes for insight, guidance or fun. For some, it's
serious business and for others it's just well...fun! But when it comes to
journaling, these bits can become valuable tools to help us connect more
with who we know ourselves to be.
Each of the twelve Zodiac Signs
corresponds with birth dates. Each Sign is considered to be representative
of the general qualities for people born during that time. Each comes with
positive attributes and challenging ones as well. While these associated
attributes don't necessarily indicate who we are, they can help us to see
what we could be.
Find your Zodiac Sign below and note the ten descriptive words associated with each one. In your journal, take one word at a time and write on it.
Start with a description. For example, if one of your words is "devoted", start with this:
To be devoted means to ...
Then take it a bit further and connect yourself with the attribute. For example:
I consider myself to be extremely devoted when it comes to... or Devoted is not something I would describe myself as because...
By exploring these, you redefine who you believe yourself to be and gain awareness into what you would like to develop within. Daily horoscopes can be an excellent way to get started with writing. You can read the material and then write your thoughts and feelings on it all.
