Your Language Learning Horoscope!

​Ever since I was a little girl, I had an interest in astrology. I loved reading about zodiac signs (especially when they were on point)! I bought magazines mostly for the horoscopes inside. I mean, who doesn't love horoscopes? They are so fun to think about! Here's the tea on how each zodiac sign learns languages. Enjoy!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You are enthusiastic about learning languages because you love to embark on new adventures and new challenges. You are assertive and love making yourself understood. Your impatience, when it comes to language mastery, can be a problem for you. It's a marathon, not a sprint. It is perfectly ok to pace yourself.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You're willing to invest the time needed to enjoy the process of learning a language as well as the culture that comes along with it. You know how to stop and smell the roses, feel the sun rays, listen to the wind and take in the beautiful view. Your stubbornness in thinking you know the best way to learn a language could get you stuck. You may have to unlearn what you think you already know about learning a language or be open to some new ways of learning.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You have a natural way of letting your charm shine through and making friends wherever you go. You use foreign language to connect with people of all walks of life. Although you're adept, you seem to get bored easily and as a result sometimes stop learning a language abruptly to go focus on something else. Take a moment to think about why you are suddenly feeling bored, how language learning fits your needs and make a plan to work at it.   

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
If you're learning a language it's because you made up your mind a long time ago to do so. Since you are creative, emotional and sentimental, you tend to tie the language concepts you learn with emotions or memories you experienced when you learned them. Sometimes your inner control freak AND your self-doubt both rear their ugly heads to make language learning difficult for you. Work through it—let it all go and let it flow.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You love to learn languages of luxury (read: Italian, French, etc.), and to immerse yourself in the luxurious parts of a culture as well. You are also a natural at mastering the art of flirting in a foreign language and can draw foreign men to you easily. You are determined to master any language you start learning. It's hard for you to admit your mistakes and limitations, which can sometimes come across as arrogant and irritating to those who want to help you.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You are such a perfectionist, you never seem to realize how advanced in languages you actually are. You're diligent in your studies, an excellent planner and organizer. You have a tendency to analyze everything and come off as a know-it-all. Be ware because your corrections could come across to others as criticisms. You are insecure about your talents and should learn to appreciate yourself more. Give yourself the encouragement and support that you so easily and enthusiastically give to others.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)
You're not sure which language you should learn and are sometimes indecisive in general. Some people mistake it for laziness, but you just like to weigh the pros and cons instead of making rash decisions. Once you've decided on something, you stick to it. You have a tendency to get complacent easily and may settle for a lower level of fluency rather than overcome the difficulties necessary to get you to the next level.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You are impulsive and have a tremendous belief in yourself that you can master any of the intimidating languages that others often shy away from (Chinese, Russian, Arabic, etc.). You're persistent, resilient, and resolved to learn the language of your choice no matter how much it requires of you. You can be ruthless when it comes to your pursuit of language mastery and will sting those who you feel are getting in your way.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You're free spirited and love the freedom that comes with long distance traveling. You also enjoy being in company and talking about language and culture. You thrive in language learning study groups, meet-ups and networking events. While you enjoy hearing others' point of views, you especially love to give yours. Because you're frank and tactless, it can be a little off putting.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You're very disciplined and realistic in your approach to learning languages. So much so that you sometimes forget that learning languages should also be fun! While it's okay to have goals and aspirations, you should take some time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. A little lightheartedness can go a long way.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You're idealistic and feel that language learning and intercultural understanding is what will bring world peace. You're one of a kind in the way that you learn languages and find that the conventional methods of learning don't suit you. You're a visionary and because you tend to look so far into the future, you sometimes can fail to acknowledge your current language learning needs. 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You are highly ambitious and will jump in head first into learning a language. You love to learn by immersion but also love the positive feedback you can get from a teacher in a classroom setting.  You sometimes rely too heavily on positive feedback from others and can be discouraged when you don't receive any. While nothing is wrong with guidance, learn to believe in your own talents and use them to work towards language mastery on your own.
