ARIES

March 21-April 19

Body Matters:

Keep your cool, Aries, ‘cause this Full Moon on the 15th is gonna be all up in your business. How you handle feeling over-stimulated is yuge around that week because if you act out of impulse, you may end up hurting yourself. Find a balance between burning things to the ground and sucking up your feels altogether. Dance, jazzercise, run, or hop your way to relaxation this month. Movement is key to balance and chillness.

Social Scene

From the 4th through the 8th, it’s time to be on guard for weird stuff with your crew. You may feel like you’re being diplomatic and find that bishes have a different idea about things. Be honest with yourself about what you’re really feeling, so you don’t act nicey-nice and end up coming off as fake. If you’re in an intense place or hella bugged by people, figure out if you need to take some space or just come forward with more honesty. It’s possible to be cunty and kind at the same time, Aries; the trick is to be straightforward and compassionate while you do you.

Workspace:

Pick your battles wisely, Aries. You may wanna cut a bish if they get in your way, but trust that you’ll come to regret it if you do. Strive to be diplomatic with your problems this month but especially from the Full Moon in your sign on the 15th onwards. Be especially on the lookout for power struggles from the 18th through the 21st that may live on to haunt you if you handle them poorly. If you’ve got nothing to prove, then it doesn’t matter what others think or what they’re doing. Maintain your allies, and focus on your own homework for the win, babe.

Love:

Your sign is known for going out and pioneering, but this month is all about opening up your receptors. How you pay attention to others is up; and if you’re willing to be humble, you may find that you haven’t been listening as well as you thought you had. Everyone has their own version of reality, and it doesn’t matter if yours is the smartest, rightest version of them all; you’ve gotta respect that others may feel differently than you do. Don’t convince, fix, or compel others before you hunker down and try to really see things from their point of view.

TAURUS

April 20-May 20

Body Matters:

How you feel in your skin isn’t a static thing; you’re always growing and changing, and just as soon as you get used to your meat suit being one way, it goes and changes on you. How rude! On September 30th the New Moon will bring you hella helping vibes for gaining insight into some body-block that’s been nagging at you or to kick off a new self-care attitude or regimen. From the 4th onwards is an excellent time to research, plan, talk, and generally figure out what works for you. Don’t be shy to bring your friendship to your bod to the next level, honey pie.

Social Scene

On the 24th, Venus, the planet of love and beauty, enters into your relationship house; and it’s all-good, Taurus. Make friend time a top priority by throwing parties or curating quality hang time with the babes you love. In order for your friendships to thrive, you need to remember to make time to talk about things unrelated to love or just getting lit. Friendship should be more than a distraction; if you’ve been treating your fam like a placeholder for your love life, then you’ve likely got some repair work to do. Either way, investing in your friendships is worth its weight in gold.

Workspace:

With Jupiter, the planet of growth and chance, in your work house, this is a great time to 2.0 your game. Make use of opportunities that come your way, as it could be easy come, easy go times for you, my friend. The worst thing you could do is fall down a hole made of drinking games and long shots; take risks that give you more long term freedoms and expand your sense of potential. If late October brings turbulence to your plans, try to pace yourself through how you manage your reactions. Keep your eyes on the prize, and don’t get distracted by them shiny things, lover.

Love:

Your feelings have changed, but you’re unlikely to know exactly what that means. Sleep on it, Taurus. Let your emotions catch up to your head, and in the meantime you don’t have to do anything. Let matters develop in your heart of hearts, and be kind to yourself in the process. Not knowing where you’re at isn’t wrong; pushing yourself to feel something that just isn’t there sucks though. The Full Moon on the 15th should bring about some meaningful insights, but it’s chill to sit on them. Let things develop in the time they need to this month.

 

GEMINI

May 21-June 21

Body Matters:

It may feel like a million things are trying to steal your attention away from self-care, but you’ve gotta stay strong. Your relationships are demanding a bunch of your energy, and it may feel like there’s nothing left for you. Take alone time to tend to the needs of your body, buddy. You especially need to stretch this month, so take a yoga challenge; or if you’re more like me, just watch cats and do what they do, and skip the classroom. Find a way to care for your meat suit that makes you feel better in the here and now.

Social Scene

The Full Moon on the 15th is going to bring with it a big emo punch. Don’t assume you get where your bishes are coming from because everyone is going through their own version of intense feels bumping up against big ideas. Make sure you’re showing up as the kind of friend you wanna be. There’s helluv energy at play this month to make you feel edgy and quick to make assumptions. Breathe through the BS and try to lead with patience and kindness.

Workspace:

It’s all about who you know. Whether it’s BS or not, your connections grease the way for the kinds of opportunities you get and what people know about you. Focus on the social part of your profession this season while generous Venus is in your house of work. You may find yourself feeling lazy or like you just don’t wanna, but oh well; this Gem was meant to shine. Connect to the human part of your work life and goals so that you can find a way to win at life; work smarter, not harder, Twin Star.

Love:

You’re in luck, Twin Star. This season is all about whispering, texting, and crooning sweet nothings at your crush. Say what you mean and mean what you say, even if it’s scary AF. You’re poised for something new and exciting to enter your love life with the New Moon on the 30th, but what that might be is on you. Reignite your fire with your bae, brave a first move on someone, or start a new creative project. The key is to put yourself out there, focused on creating the loveliest life you can, while saying FU to your fears. Get on it, Mistersister.

 

CANCER

June 22-July 22 

Body Matters:

There’s a time and a place for pushing yourself, but if you’ve found lately that it’s always right here, you’re on a weird track. This is a good time for an elimination diet or any kind of body-based therapy that requires some self-discipline, but if your relationship to your bod becomes too restrictive, it won’t work. Be a good parent to the hard-to-understand child that is your carriage, Moonchild. Insert flow and fun in balance with hard work and restriction to balance out your self-care. The healthier your bod is, the easier it is to be happy and productive.

Social Scene

It takes a long time to be friends – not pals – with someone. Trust is not a singular destination as much as an onion with layers that sometimes makes ya cry. While trying to build a fam you really wanna be in, don’t let bumps in the road stop you from trusting people altogether. Let the things that are troubling you also inspire you to look critically at your choices. You’ve been pushing yourself somewhat blindly to stay connected to your friends; is it time to reevaluate your connections? Or simply to invest in them with greater clarity of intent? Take the time to figure it out.

Workspace:

There’s no use in pretending you’ve got limitless energy to waste away at a job or relationship that you don’t actually care about, Moonchild. You’re an emo creature and that doesn’t mean that you can’t work a thing out in the material world; it means that working it out has to include an informed respect for your own feels. Be prepared to confront some work/life balance stuff this Libra season. Your need for balance shouldn’t be a reaction to what’s wrong as much as an embodiment of what’s right for you. Figure your shit out, even if you can’t put it into action quite yet.

Love:

Your heart is full and fierce, but man can you hold a grudge. From October 18th through 22nd, things are especially likely to emerge that make your blood boil, but wait before you act; some things piss you off because of what they are, and some things get under your skin because of what they trigger inside you. These are different problems that take different medicine, and you have to be willing to unpack your reactions in order to know which witch is which. Don’t take your reactions at face value this month.

 

LEO

July 23-Aug. 22

Body Matters:

There’s a mixed report card for you this month. Your steeze is on point and you’re hella cute, Leo. You look adorbs and there’s nothing bad about that. The only problem is that you may be focusing on your looks instead of taking stock of your actual health, and that ain’t right. Don’t just think about how you look today – invest in your inner-health so that you can look fly when you’re old and grey. Make your friendship with your meat suit a happy one by giving it tough love when it needs it.

Social Scene

From the New Moon on the 30th onwards, this is an awesome time to invest in your homies, Leo. Don’t let shyness get in the way of letting people know how much you love and need them. Improve your listening skills, especially from the 6th through the 8th, even if all you wanna do is throw down some serious gossip. In fact, gossip can be extra fun this season, even if it’s ill-advised. Talk about others only the way you want to be talked about, Kitty Kat. The seeds you plant will grow, so sew with care.

Workspace:

Your vision is just as important as your execution, bae. This month will yield you lots of opportunity for getting your viewfinder affixed on the right destination. Set aside time, even if it’s on your commute to work or school, to think of the future. Where do you see yourself in a few months or years, and how happy are you with that picture? If you move forward without a destination in mind, you won’t be making the most of your potential, Leo, and ain’t nobody got time for that.

Love:

It’s time to get hella deep, Leo. What you want from love is changing, and by changing I mean maturing. Things you may have thought were le lame now seem totally desirable. Don’t judge your own growth, puppy. Allow space for your heart to work itself out because contrary to how it may feel right now, you will find a middle ground that works for you. The key is to not abandon your process just because it’s uncomfortable or you’re scared of being alone. If you’re gonna be alone, you might as well be single. Choose your baes wisely.

 

VIRGO

Aug. 23-Sept. 22

Body Matters:

What counts to you, for really and for true? Your actions may not be lined up with your values, and that’s gonna stink. Having a body is hard work, but it’s also a joy. If you focus on stupid shit – like the size of your pores, or whether you’re a size 0 or a size 12 – are you honoring the self you actually wanna be? How does the little stuff of how you look change or reflect on what you actually are? Don’t let anyone tell you what’s good or important when it comes to your body; that bish is your BFF.

Social Scene

Not knowing where you’re at or what you really wanna do is unsettling but doesn’t have to be tragic. If there are weird dynamics in your squad, it doesn’t have to be a big deal, and it’s certainly not forever. Confront weird feels with kindness, so you can flush out any problems with ease. This month may find you with the challenge of holding up a friend who isn’t really helping themselves; the line between enabling and supporting is a fine one, my friend.

Workspace:

You’ve totally got things going in a great direction, but all you can do is notice what you don’t have. Learn the difference between a conservative attitude and a straight up fixation on your fears. You’ve got the skills, the vision, and the resources on hand; the thing you’re missing is the confidence to put it all together. Ask for perspective or a helping hand because your viewfinder is more clouded than you think it is. You’ve got this, Virgo. Have faith.

Love:

Whether you’ve got an ex taking up real estate in your head, or you can’t seem to let go of a stupid fight with bae, this month is all about letting your feels bubble up to the surface so you can finally release them. Play catch and release with your obsessions from the explosive Full Moon on the 15th onwards. Let change flow, Virgo. Transform your feels before you have to by owning the messiness of them. Some things aren’t reasonable and that’s ok, as long as you stay away from self-destructive dynamics. Love is a healing force. Let it move through your life.

 

LIBRA

Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Body Matters:

Happy Birthday, Libra! Bring your feels to the forefront of your personal New Year. The New Moon on the 30th in your sign is a call for you to start feeling yourself. Luckily for you, Jupiter, the planet of expansion, and Chatty-Cathy Mercury are in your sign too, helping you to do whatever you need to get yourself to the next level. Thrift a new wardrobe, quit smoking, expand your self-love routine. You can have the best of what your meat suit has to offer this year if you make good choices in self-loving ways. Get on it.

Social Scene

It’s time to consider the role that fear has been playing in your life, lover. Evading crappy thoughts can for sure lead to good livin’, but it can also be a ploy to try and pretend that you’re feeling something that you’re not. Let bishes love you, Libra. Share the good, the fierce, and the ugly with your fam, even if you barely want to face it yourself. It’s your Birthday, and you’re gonna be showered with love and good times: yay! The good doesn’t undo the rough, so let them co-exist in a black lipstick and white frilly dress kinda way.

Workspace:

You need inspiration, and you need it yesterday. Part of the creative challenge of having a life that feels dynamic to you is to be able to look ahead. I’m not suggesting that you should live in the future, but if you consider where you ultimately want to be, your choices for the short term clarify themselves. Take bits of insight and pair it with baby steps that empower you, Libra. You’ve got the raw material; all you’ve gotta do now is follow through in the right direction.

Love:

Don’t make promises you can’t keep, Libra. At the start of September you may be feeling like anything is possible, but the Full Moon on the 15th is going to bring up hella complicated feels for you to sort through. Whether you’ve changed, or bae isn’t the same as they used to be, it’s time to face facts, Libra. If you’ve been trying to stuff your feelings down, now’s the time that things are going to erupt to the surface – and not too gently, either. Honor your investments in your sweetie, or if you’re single, in being the person you wanna be. You or your situation may need to change, and drawing things out won’t help.

 

SCORPIO

Oct. 23-Nov. 21 

Body Matters:

Sleep may evade you this Libra season, but especially in the October part of it. There’s helluv stuff up in your head, but it may feel like a big jumble of data instead of streamlined thoughts. Make an effort to protect your dream life, Scorpio. Try to have no devices in the bedroom while you sleep, and avoid using them at least a half-hour before you hit the sheets. Your subconscious mind needs time to unfurl itself so that your conscious mind can function at its peak potential. Try it for a month and see how it feels, and then you can stay up till all hours for your bday month (right around the corner!).

Social Scene

If you’ve got abandonment issues, watch out for triggers from your fam from the 12th onwards. It’s not super likely that you’re about to be left behind as much as you might feel that way. Beware of pulling a George W. Bush and doing a preemptive strike on a friend that you fear is icing you. Don’t jump to conclusions, Scorpio. If you’re gonna assume something, assume that your bishes love you and whatever they’re doing isn’t intended to mess with you. With Venus in your sign, it can be all lovey, all day; so try and expect the best this month, Puppy.

Workspace:

Even if you’re totally over your workload, it’s super unlikely that you’ll be able to up and leave. This month will bring you as much drama at work as you’re willing to participate in, Scorpio. When someone crosses the line or you’re just plain over it, you’ve got two choices: react to your feelings and cut into a bish, or come up with a plan (I vote for the latter). Get mad strategic about how to manage difficult people and situations by reconnecting with why you consent to being in your situation. If you find it’s not worth it, make an exit strategy. If you have a good reason to stay, focus on that instead of your desire for muuuurder.

Love:

The biggest danger to your love life is that you idealize the people that you know you like. There’s nothing wrong with loving someone for all you think they can be, but you’ve got problems as soon as it creeps into fantasy town. Accept people for who they are, even their crap parts. Knowing that a person is foolish in some ways doesn’t undo the ways that they’re lit. Love on your crush with the wholeness of the messy, messy truth that includes what you don’t really like. Realness is the stuff that lasts, lover.

 

SAGITTARIUS

Nov. 22-Dec. 21 

Body Matters:

Having a body can be a burden when it’s not a beautiful gift. With Saturn still hanging out in your first house, themes of aging may be making themselves known in lovely and disturbing ways. No matter what your age is, there’s wisdom and freedom in exploring what it’s like to be an older bish. The only thing you know for sure is that right now you’re as young as you’re ever gonna be and that there’s lit ways to grow older just as much as there are sad ways. Find your own.

Social Scene

Platonic love doesn’t get enough attention in our weird world, but your fam are the folks that hold you up when you’re down and give you a place in this world. Make space in your life for honoring your chosen family. From the 10th through the 12th is an especially great time to bring your friendships to the next level or to make new friends. Life is an adventure, but it’s a lonely one without babes that get you. If you run into conflicts in all your efforts to lavish attention on your friendships, don’t worry about it. Show up and speak your truth, and things’ll work out just fine.

Workspace:

You’re in a spectacular time to get things done, ‘Tarius. Follow through with your plans; and if you don’t have any, spend some time at the drawing board. Your focus is really important this month, and if you fritter your energy away on details that are less important than the whole, you’ll feel totally exhausted and frustrated at the same time. Do things as well as you can, but get ‘em done, lover. That means you’ve gotta focus on the highest impact tasks, and not all the things all at once.

Love:

You’re in a place of figuring out who you wanna be and what it all means, and that’s real AF. The trick is to take enough space from your bae life to fall in love with you. Instead of trying to get into a relationship, really investigate what didn’t work for you in the past. Strive to know yourself better so that you can make better choices with your achy breaky heart, ‘Tarius. If you’re already in a relationship, a good day to take a step back and do you is with the Full Moon on the 15th; honestly reflect on where you’re at, even if it’s hella complicated.

 

CAPRICORN

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

Body Matters:

Watch out! From the 15th through the 21st, you should be on guard against accidents and built-up frustrations. There’s helluv energy building up inside of you and it will be expressed, one way or another. The question is only if you’ll be the one calling the shots. Think of yourself as an animal that needs a balanced about of movement and activity in order to function correctly (because that’s exactly what you are). Step away from your devices, and exercise something other than your fingers and your mind for happiest results.

Social Scene

You may not exactly know who your friends are, and that’s a weird feeling. It’s not that you don’t know bishes, it’s just that you may be feeling disconnected from your fam. Don’t assume the worst and hide away in a sad-Cap hidey-hole, Kitty Kat. Reach out to your friends and ask for help, whether you need it for something deep or for help binging on Netflix.  

Workspace:

Be open to new projects and possibilities opening up for you this month, Cappy. The key is not to take on every opportunity that presents itself but to know which things offer you what you really want. If all you do is the busy work of getting ‘er done, you’ll never feel that sense of satisfaction and peace that you’re seeking. Be willing to say ‘no’ to things that take time and energy from the things you most want to say ‘yes’ to, especially on the 6th through the 8th of October.

Love:

When you feel at home with someone, it’s like you’ve arrived. The problem is that home is where bishes feel comfortable enough to act out, meaning that when you feel safe, it’s easy to not pay attention to your own behavior. Make sure you’re treating others well, Capricorn. Treating someone with kindness requires you to really stop and notice them, which is hard to do when you’re consumed by your own feels. Take time off to tend to yourself so that you can show the F up for the people you most love this month.

 

AQUARIUS

Jan. 20-Feb. 18

Body Matters:

Wait until you feel anxious and creepy and off, and then try this out, Aquarius: find the parts of your body that feel good, or that stand out and feel bad. Breathe and stay with whatever you feel. Don’t fix or find or any other thing. Just breathe and be a nice, chill friend to the part of your body that’s holding your bad feelings. Treat how you feel as the most important thing to you, lover. The emo and the physical are supes connected, and the clearer you are about how that functions for you, the easier it’ll be to have the most peaceful experience of both.

Social Scene

Not all drama is bad; sometimes things have to come to the surface so that they can be cleared away. Whether you’ve overstepped some boundary or somebody feels that you have, you may have to honor a friends’ feels this month. You don’t have to agree with what a loved one thinks happened in order to agree that hurt feels are the pits. Don’t confuse humility and guilt, or acknowledging someone else’s feelings with an attack on your own. True friendship takes maintenance, so get to work, bb.

Workspace:

This month can find you getting ahead in a meaningful way (yay!), but it’ll cost you (boo!). You’ve got to reign in you desire for everything to fall into place all at once, Aquarius. Instead of being inspired by the big picture, you’re likely to find yourself drained at the thought of what you don’t have. Bring your focus to all that you have going for you on the work front this month; even if where you’re at is the stage of acquiring the basics that you won’t get to use for some time, every small phase of development is necessary for the big stuff to happen. Work hard and you’ll get there by and by.

Love:

You know the old saying, “if you can’t be patient, just be obsessive”? Of course you don’t, because there is no such cray cray saying! Patience requires being protective enough of the things or people you love that you give them the time and space to develop. Picking at things will lead to drama and crapiness this month. If bae asks for space, give it to them. If you’re not feeling things and you don’t know why, give your heart some breathing room. Start having healthier boundaries with yourself, and you’ll find that your relationships benefit in untold ways.

 

PISCES

Feb. 19-March 20

Body Matters:

There’s no magic to it. If you don’t get enough sleep, or remember to breathe, or drink enough water, or eat nutritious foods, or get some sun on your face now and again, you’ll feel like crap. Before looking for complicated solutions to pretty standard problems, make sure you can say you’re regular on the afore mentioned self-care list. And I don’t mean that you should do some of those things, or only do them for a few days in a row to see results. Adopt a healthy lifestyle that tends to your physical foundations first, friend.

Social Scene

This is likely to be a long road if you don’t know where you stand or what you want. Instead of looking around your self for cues and reacting to where you think other people are at, try shoving all of that outta your mind for a minute. What do you want, Pisces? Don’t get so caught up in your fears that you can’t see your own self or your homies clearly. Change is inevitable, but the quality of that change is up for grabs. Show up with your most authentic self, and be patient with what unfolds from there.

Workspace:

What you value says a lot about you, but how you act on what you value says even more. Be open to insights and inspiration on the meaning that money holds for you and what you’re for reals willing to do to get it. You may have been resting on assumptions that you’ve outgrown or that were never even heartfelt for you at all, Pisces. It’s time to align your values with what you actually value. The best way to feel confused and crappy is to not have clear motivations guiding you. Clarify and carry on Pisces.

Love:

You are infinitely loveable, Pisces. You’re a gem. So why has your self esteem been in the shitter? Instead of focusing on what you don’t have, try taking stock of what you do have going for you. This month, gratitude is the attitude that’ll attract the most love and light into your heart-sphere. You’re nothing less than everything, and you don’t need someone else as proof of that. Treat yourself as the sexy beast you are, and hold out for the kind of love that makes you feel loved. What you consent to is the embodiment of your boundaries, and that’s no joke. Love yourself enough to hold out for the right kind of love.
