ARIES: you call me your little flower, when you yourself are an entire garden of love. your roots have found home in my tourist heart and for that i am grateful. smile, laugh, and dance around to the sound of time because the future isn’t something you should worry about. you’ve got it under control, even if you don’t think you do.
TAURUS: i gave you a piece of french bread for your birthday, and i told you bon anniversaire because it made you laugh, and i think babe, you should do a lot more of that. laughter, excitement, happiness - all my birthday wishes to you. you’re growing up, but i hope you never really grow up, because there’s so much of you i wish i could trap and save because i know one day you’re going to drive away, and i still won’t have my license. you’re sincerely one of the greatest people to know.
GEMINI: i feel such admiration for you because you’re so kind even though you don’t have to be. you’re a rare kind of person, never forget that. i want you to step outside in the spring summer weather and pick flowers for the ones you love. i know it’ll make you happy.
CANCER: you are the nicest person i know. i can see your shoulders sagging against the weight of a face both of us can’t name, but i will hold you up as long as you need me to. we’ve made it this far kid, and even if these lit rooms feel like darkness, i hope you know you’re gonna make it out alive.
LEO: you’re gonna do it. you’re gonna be just fine. you’re gonna learn how to live again, and i can’t wait to be there when you do, when we both do, because you actually are a human embodiment of Jackson Pollock painting. there’s so much to you, and it’s all so goddamn beautiful, and it’s going to be a masterpiece when you figure it out. and you will, because little lion man, no matter how many times you say you’ve messed up, you never really have.
VIRGO: darling, you should surround your room with plants and flowers and life to remind you of what you are every morning when you wake up, because you are art and life and color. but in a different way, than most people, and i think that’s pretty damn cool. you’re so you, and you should embrace that more. if there’s something you want to change, something you want to continue, something you just want to do, just go ahead and follow your pretty mind. the path you walk on will be paved with sunshine.
LIBRA: there is a fine line between being good and being bad. you teeter totter along this line as if it’s a game, and honey, please stop playing. life isn’t a game, it’s life. we were not made as puppet strings and puppet masters, and i know you know this deep inside. let yourself live a little, and learn the definition of love.
SCORPIO: there is so much of you i want to know, i feel as if i’ve made a new discovery from the very first “hello”. you write like obsidian dipped in chocolate and i wish you were all sweet and less pain, but i know life will never be easy for people like us. but keep writing, because you are poetry, whether you know it or not.
SAGITTARIUS: things are not as easy nor as difficult as art, but i hope you know you’re entire life is a painting just waiting to be framed. every smile, every tear, it’s all color somewhere and that means a whole lot i think. take some time to love yourself, and take some time to read.
CAPRICORN: i miss you, i miss you. i think you’re an artist of your own terms, and it absolutely fascinates me. please never lose this spark you have, and i know i worry like the mother i am, but the world is a shitty place, and you’re my little flame. don’t burn out, you’ll find it my dear.
AQUARIUS: look at yourself, and hold onto yourself, and love yourself, above everything else. please. if you’re just even trying, i am so proud of you for that, because i know how hard it is. this is a first step, up a hill, past the tide, on the moon, this is a first step, and it is amazing. you have the entire strength of the ocean on your side, and nothing is going to stop you. it’ll all fall into place somehow, and yes you’ll get a little broken along the way but there’s nothing left that can’t be fixed. trust and tell the truth.
PISCES: there’s spaces between you and i, but no matter because love transcends it all. you are warm and sugar cookies in a black and white aesthetic kind of way, and i wish i could hold onto you with my actual arms. drive around to arctic monkeys songs and realize that’s what you are. write poetry about being the representation of a road trip and home.”
