Any good maximalist has rolled their eyes at Coco Chanel's famous quote about taking at least one accessory off before leaving the house. "Less is more" is not for everyone. Yet, in life and in love, sometimes the most important lessons are that of unlearning, of taking someone off before you leave the house. The process of unlearning, of discarding skills or ideas that no longer serve you is no easy task. You can reread old diaries, old texts, old Tinder conversations trying to map your mind on love, hunting for the 2019 love lesson you need to unlearn, and you still may be wondering, what problems am I creating for myself? And how the f*ck do I stop doing that?
Getting out of your own way takes self-awareness, reflection, and sometimes looking at your problems from above. Like, from-the-constellations-above. I reached out to the amazing astrologer Cindy Mckean about the love lessons each sign needs to unlearn in 2019.
Of course, astrology isn't a life sentence — your future may hold all sorts of things nothing and no one could have ever predicted. Yet, from embracing imperfection to letting someone take care of you for a change, Mckean's lessons of unlearning are short but sage, and really hit home.
