Miss Katelyn encourages with Mantra Week


by Katelyn Chamberlin

It’s Mantra Week! Enjoy these thoughtful quotes and my interpretation of how they apply to your life these next two weeks.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

“Leadership involves finding a parade and getting in front of it.” Being a leader doesn’t always mean starting something; there’s many ways to be a leader. Run for an office in one of Simpson’s many organizations.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

We know you’re stubborn and you just want what’s best for people. However, what’s best for them may not be what you think is best. “Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.”

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Your have been going down a bit of a destructive path lately, but it’s not too late. Recognize your faults and fix them. “Failure is not fatal, but failure to change might be.”

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

“Dreams are the reality you haven’t worked hard enough for.” Now is not the time to give up what you want. Before you settle, try again, but work twice as hard as you ever thought you could.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

You’ve been put in a position of power lately, and you might not be handling it right. Before delegating your responsibilities onto others, ask yourself – “It is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself?”

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

You’re popular, self-confident and loved: congratulations. But instead of reveling in all the adoring wall posts, spread the love and compliment someone else for a change. “Don’t forget that love is a verb.”

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

“Life is simple, it’s just not easy.” This mantra speaks a lot about your life lately. While you may only want to live a simple life, others around you make this impossible. Limit your time with those people.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Making a mistake isn’t the end of the world. If a past screw-up has been bothering you lately, consider this: “Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

“It is the weak man who urges compromise – never the strong man.” Be the strong one this month when others try to pressure you into things you are against. You are your own person – choose whatever option you feel comfortable with.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

A past relationship has been on your mind, and you’re not sure if you made the right choice to end it. This mantra may put you at ease: “If you believe that you can damage, then believe that you can fix.”

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

“People do not lack strength, they lack will.” Let this mantra guide your month. Take charge of your goals and aspirations. You can achieve more than you will ever believe. 

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Sometimes it’s easy to get so caught up in schoolwork that you forget you have other needs. “Life is relationships; the rest is just details.” Catch up with those friends you’ve been neglecting lately.
