Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Countdown! It may not be time to change the calendar just yet, but you have your eye on the timer. You’re getting all fired up and excited to meet your 2017 milestones. There’s no time for ridiculousness and drama, Aquarius. You’re on a mission and the only way to go is up (don’t let anyone drag you down). Word of advice: put in those long hours as well because the remainder of this year is going to have a very social vibe. You won’t be feeling like rising to the occasion, so hurry up and make your moves! You may start to get interested in the larger role you want to play in this world which makes it a good time to start drafting out your New Year’s resolutions. One last word of advice: cut out unneeded obligations that drain your energy and waste your time.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Unleash your Pisces power this month because big and bold is just your speed! You’re in the mood for growth and adventure, and there is no time for small talk when you’re bubbling with so much passion! If you’ve got a bucket list, get reacquainted with it. Then, get busy making plans to achieve your dreams! (You might even want to add a few new things to your list.) The perfect time to start an ambitious plan is coming and you’ll start seeing good results from any leaps of faith you take.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Into the depths you go! This is your annual month for reflection and self-analysis. Like a butterfly, you’ll soon emerge with brand-new, strengthened wings. You should avoid scattering your energy and tune out background noise. This intensity might just be your “new normal”, Aries.
A gentle creative vibe will soon start to flow, but don’t expect things to go smoothly. Some unexpected shifts may occur.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Get ready to hear some helpful feedback Taurus, and try to be open-minded about it. It’s like having a bird’s-eye view of yourself. You might get an extra dose of truth serum because you, or other people, could observe some things about your routines or habits that might just be a little embarrassing. Instead of getting defensive, switch your attitude about it and see what happens from there.
Some deep emotions could arise, maybe even some you’ve been pushing down for awhile now. Your mood swings could vary dramatically. One moment you could be content and the next you could be bitter, just hang in there.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Taking care of business! That’s what the stars have in store for you during this super-productive cycle. Since your levels of fitness, health, and efficiency are up, you are tossing organic greens into your diet and cracking down on your goals while the rest of the world is winding down the year. But that’s okay ‘cause that’s how Geminis like to roll, when everyone goes left, you go right!
Word of advice: you should really enjoy your private time and personal space, what with all of the work you’re getting done. If you’re feeling restless about what you should be doing instead of taking a break now and then, put all of that aside and enjoy the moment that you’re in.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Get the festive spirit going early! You’re really feeling passionate and fun this holiday season. If you’re not the first one putting up decorations and playing holiday music, you’ll be buying and wrapping presents.
Watch the drama! This pungent solar cycle can bring out your fiery side. Don’t let your emotions build up to a breaking-point. It may be hard to hold back, but you could direct that passion into an artistic project or fun activity.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You should care for yourself with family bonding, blissful solitude, and some comfort food this holiday season. Most likely, you’ve got a pile up of books to devour or a fully loaded Netflix queue to empty.
Family should start arriving at your home this month and you could be forced to aim your attention on matters close to your heart.
Has there been family friction this year? Well, you could start a whole new chapter with a relative/family member this astrological Scorpio season.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
And you’re off! You can’t stem the tide of ideas, a-has, and conversations this month. After a conscientious November, you have earned the right to celebrate the holidays in lightheartedness. Take pleasure in this social season and rally up with friends. Get back to pleasurable pastimes and favorite local hotspots.
You should feel secure and faithful in your talents, skills, and experiences because of your faith in inspiration and endless possibilities. Your family and friends may be encouraging you beyond your comfort level, but really, they’re right.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Settle down, Libra. Fall has been a whirlwind so far because of it being your birthday season, and you’ve been downshifting from a breakneck and adventurous pace to a more grounded groove. In November, you have gotten to settle into that more moderate rhythm, but unfortunately now that the holiday season is in full swing you have to pick up the pace. Hopefully you’ve chosen and planned out what you want to focus on for the remaining month (!!) of the year.
Libra, you are encouraged to resolve anything that has been worrying or annoying you. It may not be important in the long run, but right now it seems pretty important. So clear it up and be done with it because once you do that, you are sure to feel a lot better. You have many assets and people to offer moral support and aid you in the process to fix whatever’s been bugging you.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You will have chance to do or say things that you normally wouldn’t. Be thoughtful and keep it nice then people will probably appreciate and people will probably agree. You could even change your look now and people won’t judge or offer negative criticism.
Now to your agenda, Scorpio. Here’s the big question: What do YOU want or long for? For whatever reason, this suggestion might be frightening or exhilarating. But now you have a big open canvas waiting for you.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You might be having a hard time getting out of bed, Sagittarius. As much as you want to get up early, it’s getting even harder now. You’re dealing with a change or possibly a bundle of emotions. To say the least: you’re pooped! But you should rest up whenever you can because it is your birthday season! It’s not that you’d be lying around doing nothing, exactly. Those extra hours of sleep and intense dreams is your mind and body’s way of sorting through the heavy-duty issues that can’t be solved with your thinking mind. Even when you’re awake, your rambling pace is leading you somewhere. Follow your muse, intuition, and signs from the universe.
When you’re actually doing something, focus on completing the projects you’ve started instead of starting new ones.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, the future belongs to those who have faith in themselves. These are words to live by this month. Cutting-edge collaborations could take place now, so start thinking of maybe adding some like-minded people to your group. This month is really going to be about the people you know, which you might need to remind yourself of. Develop your existing bonds and forge new ones.
Overall, this month has relaxed and all-encompassing vibes. This makes it easier to rise above any conflicts. You could spread an inspiring message through your social media platforms. Your out-of-the-box ideas could go viral.
