Jan. 21 ‑ Feb. 19
You made it through October, Aquarius, and you were smart to follow our advice and stay inside. Now it’s time to get back out into the world. You have projects you’ve put on hold, relationships you’ve put on hold, and that nagging issue you need to see a doctor about? It’s time to do something about it. But be sure to check your car and electronic devices before you venture back out. There may be something (or someone) causing them to fail.
Feb. 20 ‑ Mar. 20
You’re in a real pickle this month, Pisces. You’ve been craving attention from family and friends, and now, FINALLY, it looks like there’s a horde of people ready to get back into your life. But think carefully before you invite them back in. If they used or betrayed you before, they’ll most certainly do it again. Enduring another month of painful, solitary loneliness will pay off in the end.
Mar. 21 ‑ Apr. 20
Your ability to express yourself, share your emotions and embrace intimacy is nothing but a benefit for you, Aries. You’ll feel closer than ever before to your loved ones, and that closeness will extend to anyone and everyone around you. You are glowing with love! You are exuding passion and happiness! You are basking in the glory of being an Aries. Which is exactly as it should be.
Apr. 21 ‑ May 21
Your bullheadedness may have finally paid off, Taurus. You stood your ground on some important issues at work, and now you are perceived as someone who sticks to his guns. Even if his guns are so very, very wrong. Which they usually are. And everyone knows they are. But hang in there! One of these days you’re going to get it right. Just not this month. This month is another long, wrong month for you.
May 22 ‑ June 21
You’ve tried, Gemini, lord knows you’ve tried. You uncluttered your life, delegated a few tasks to people you trust, and even managed to finish one or two projects that have been hanging around for far too long. The problem is now you think it’s time to move on to something new. Don’t do it. Try to hold off because if you don’t, the outcome may not be exactly what you hoped for.
June 22 ‑ July 22
And here we go again, Cancer. You want a partner so bad you can’t see straight. But this is not the month to start another relationship. And under no circumstances should you get married this month. It’s a terrible idea that all goes back to this thing called the Mercury Retrograde. You don’t need the details, just know that you should postpone anything having to do with a relationship. No proposals, no promises, no nothin’!
July 23 ‑ Aug. 23
You’ve worked hard this past month to find out who you really are, Leo, and it’s going to pay off for you. Just not this month. This month needs to be another “be by myself” month, because otherwise you may have no choice BUT to be by yourself. This will happen because you have a natural tendency to run people off, even if you do know who you are. Because right now, you’re still kind of stubborn and unpleasant.
Aug. 24 ‑ Sept. 23
The panic you’re feeling is just a natural part of life, Virgo. This will pass. Doomsday is not just around the corner. It’s just the opposite, in fact! November is historically a calm, quiet month for you, and we recommend you keep it that way. Also, don’t sign any contracts or make any verbal agreements this month. If you have to, be sure to read the fine print. Sometimes things really aren’t as they seem.
Sept. 24 ‑ Oct. 23
You love this time of year, Libra. The holidays are upon us! It’s the time of year you can finally put your plans to work. Those gifts you’ve been eyeing? They’ll soon be on sale. Eggnog? It’ll soon be on the shelves. And as far as you go? Now is the time to share all those wonderful things you do every year to let your family and friends know how much they mean to you. And you’ll do it without missing a beat, because you are, after all, Libra.
Oct. 24 ‑ Nov. 22
Oh no, Scorpio. You went out and found yourself a new love. Except it wasn’t really a new love, but an ex who was willing to give you another chance. The thing with an ex, though, is they are normally an ex for a reason—a reason you chose to ignore. So now the best thing you can do is end this ridiculous attempt, retreat back to your safe place, re-energize, re-think this situation, and try not to re-endure the same experience you had the first time around.
Nov. 23 ‑ Dec. 21
Multiple planets are colliding this month, Sagittarius, and the result is you need to do absolutely nothing. Do not start a relationship. Do not start a new job. Do not start a new project. Do not invest in anything. Do not sign contracts, make verbal agreements, or get married. In summary, you are Aquarius, Pisces, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Scorpio and Capricorn all rolled up into one. This may be the worst month ever for you. It’s not doomsday, but it’s close.
Dec. 22 ‑ Jan. 20
The stars lined up spelling out MONEY for you this month, Capricorn. Unfortunately it’s not in the plus column. It appears you made a mistake (or two), and a very large tax bill is coming your way. And your water bill will triple. And your car will break down, your roof will need repair and your A/C will be on the blink. Poor Capricorn. Unless you figure out a way to realign those stars, all you can do right now is pay the bills and tough it out
