We all have our days when we need a little extra encouragement. Life can bowl us over some days, and we find it hard to see any light at the end of the day, but words of wisdom that inspire and resonate with one person, could mean zero to another.
Just like the language of love, we all have a different inspirational language that hits home for each of us. We each need to hear different things, be it “everything is going to work out,” or “you are not on your own.” So how do you know what works best for you, when you’re in your down place?
Well, let us look at the stars and see. Based on your zodiac sign, Here’s what quote or inspirational words you need to hear when you’re going through trying times:
Aquarius (January 20-February 18):
Aquarians are compassionate, energetic, fun-filled and extremely caring people. You love to fight for the underdog and causes you believe in. You are a free spirit; creative, with an intellectual mind that keeps on spinning. When you have a bad day, it can completely consume you, and you may feel like you’re drowning. Your usually clear foresight and visionary mind can suddenly seem faint. You need to be reminded that your strengths lie in your amazing ability to reinvent yourself and to change and adapt to your new climate. Like the water bearer that you are, you are an ever-changing tide.
Quote: “You may have to lose who you were to find out who you are.”
Aries (March 21-April 19):
You are a force to be reckoned with Aries, and you love nothing more than being first. So when you’re feeling unsure or in the slumps, you need something that helps you find and fire up your inner strength you know you have.
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):
As a Taurus, you find it difficult to back down from an argument or a challenge. As an earth sign, you are both grounded and practical, and you know that keeping your head down and working hard pays off. When you are down, you needed to be reminded that all your hard graft wasn’t for nothing and it will pay off in due course if you stay true to yourself and be patient.
Quote: “Strong women don’t have attitudes. We have standards.”
Gemini (May 21-June 20):
From playful to deadly serious at the touch of a button. As a Gemini, you are very funny, smart, quick-witted and adaptable. When you are having a bad day or feeling down, you need to be reminded of your strength and to never let them tame you.
Quote: “She was caught between a strong mind, a sensitive heart, and a passion more wild than a hurricane.”
Cancer (June 21-July 22):
Sympathetic to a fault and extremely intuitive. If any of your friends are in need, you are probably the first they call. When it’s time that you need some support to pick yourself up, you need to be reminded of how much you are loved, and you will make it through the hard times.
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):
Determined, friendly and a force to be reckoned with, the intense Leo is a hard one to knock down. Even the most self-assured, confident people have their down days. You can’t be full on confident all the time, and that’s ok. Leos need to be reminded that it’s ok not to be strong all the time, it’s ok to have a meltdown and cry, you are not alone.
Quote: “So many strong women began as a broken girl.”
Virgo (August 23-September 22):
Virgo, you instinctively know what works and what doesn’t. you’re analytically minded. However, your analysis of yourself can be too discriminating; you are your own harsh critic. On your bad days, you need to be reminded that the choices you made were based on your experience and own wisdom, you are enough, and you need to trust yourself.
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):
Libra, you are always on the look-out for the peace, the tranquility, the fairness and harmony in situations. If you were in charge, the world would be a better place to be because of it. When you’re having an off day or feeling down, the reasons are usually to do with feeling alone, no hope or an injustice. You need to be reminded that it’s impossible for you to correct everything, life is unfair, but if you are at peace with your choices, that should be enough.
Quote: “She is at a place in her life where peace is her priority and negativity cannot exist.”
Scorpio (October 23-November 21):
Possibly the hardest sign to figure out. As a Scorpio, you can be very stubborn, which makes you a force of nature. You are passionate, brave, capable and ingenious. You can usually be found leading the pack, but when you start to doubt yourself, it can be hard to come back. You need to remind yourself that the good and the bad is where you find your strength.
Quote: “She was life itself. Wild and free. Wonderfully chaotic. A perfectly put together mess.”

You love nothing more than freedom, nothing or no one can hold you back or try to cage you. You are charitable, considerate and full of charisma. You like to move fast and not let the dust settle. When you are feeling low, you need to zone in on your optimism; your strength is in the light you share with the world.
Quote: “That was her magic, she could still see the sunset even on those darkest days.”
Capricorn (December 22-January 19):
Capricorn you are practical, you are in control of yourself, and you usually have your act together. You make a great leader as you are quite disciplined, responsible and encourage others to be the same. When things turn upside down for you, your usual confidence and demeanor together can take a hit. When you feel this way, you need to be reminded that every day can’t be to without flaws, but it’s your resilience that makes you strong and not your perfection.
Quote: “It didn’t matter that she fell apart, it was how she put herself back together.”
