ARIES (MARCH 21–APRIL 19)
You’re all about comfort this month, Aries. Unfortunately, work and life have a funny habit of getting in the way of your plans (sigh). Don’t worry—you’ll still find time to snuggle under a blanket in the AC while binge-watching KUWTK.
When Mercury goes retrograde on the 7th, you’ll suddenly have a ton of big ideas. Um, why shouldn’t you try out for The Bachelor? (Especially if, fingers crossed, it's Mike Johnson.) Plus, the full moon on the 16th makes you mull over your job, so maybe it’s time for a change after all. Finally, when the Sun goes into Leo on the 22nd, you’ll have a serious urge to just kick back and enjoy life. Cocktails al fresco, anyone?
TAURUS (APRIL 20–MAY 20)
You’ve got a lot of on your mind, Taurus, and it’s all thanks to the new moon on the 2nd. Suddenly, you’ll start to think about life differently. Maybe you’re finally ready to move to a new city, or you realise your job just isn’t a good fit anymore. Whatever it is, listen to your gut.
Later, the full moon on the 16th is in a sector of your chart about seeing the big picture, making petty things (like the fact your BFF still owes you for happy hour) seem not so important anymore. When the Sun moves into Leo on the 22nd, you’ll really start feeling yourself. Take the time to revel in all that self-love—and your sheer awesomeness.
GEMINI (MAY 21–JUNE 20)
You know what you’re worth, Gem—but you’ve got to ask for it. The new moon on the 2nd is happening in a sector of your chart that represents worth, money, and resources, making it prime time to ask for a raise. Oh, and that shopping spree you've been putting off? Do it ASAP—you’ll find plenty of bargains.
This month, Mars and Mercury are in your house of communication, so you'll want to cut through the BS already. You’re not going to explain yourself over and over. Who has time for that? One more thing: Little errands can add up this month, stressing you out. Luckily, Mars energy will do you a solid and keep you motivated, so you can bang 'em out.
CANCER (JUNE 21–JULY 22)
Happy birthday, Cancer! Unfortunately, it's not all bday wishes and cake—the new moon on the 2nd raises some big questions for you. What do you want out of life? Are you getting it right now? Now's the time to think about what you want for the year ahead. Maybe you’re finally ready to take that yoga teacher training class you’ve been mulling over, or maybe it’s time to move to the city of your dreams.
Mars and Mercury are in your house of financial resources, so don't be surprised if you start rethinking your spending habits to focus on what’s actually important to you. You’ll also take a solid look at your personal vs. professional life. Do you have a good balance? If not, time for a change.
LEO (JULY 23–AUGUST 22)
This month, get to know yourself on a deeper level, Leo. You’ll be tempted to just get away from everything to give yourself time to think. Go for it—you’ll be surprised at what you discover.
Mars, the planet of action, is in your sign for most of the month, making you want to get off your butt and do something. So, have a solid think about your dreams, and then take the necessary steps to make them happen. FYI: The full moon on the 16th is in a sector of your chart about paying your dues. Just know that you might have to put in a little grunt work now to see a big payoff down the road…but it'll definitely come.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23–SEPTEMBER 22)
You’re all about your besties this month, Virgo, and it’s all thanks to the new moon in a sector of your chart about friendships. You'll feel a serious urge to get the girls together for a special night or reach out to an old friend you’ve been meaning to call for ages.
Next, the full moon on the 16th makes you wonder what you want to be known for. Are you on the right path to reach it, or is there room for improvement? While you’re at it, take a beat to think about your job. Do you still enjoy it? If not, what can you do about it? Only you truly know the answer.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23–OCTOBER 22)
You’ve got work on the brain this month, Libra. The new moon on the 2nd is in a sector of your chart about career, making you mull over whether your job is emotionally fulfilling. Plus, Venus is in Cancer for most of the month, making you think about how much you reallylove your job. Now's the time to figure it out: A new offer could be waiting in the wings.
Mercury goes retrograde on the 7th in a sector of your chart that represents friendships, urging you to put more energy and effort into that area of your life. Be flexible when it comes to meet-ups. Sure, it can be hectic when an old friend suddenly pops into town, but making time for a solid hang will ultimately feel SO good.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23–NOVEMBER 21)
Things are just ~flowing~ for you this month, Scorpio, so go with it. It’s tempting to wonder how the heck things suddenly got so good, but don't—it’s crucial to kick back and enjoy the ride. You earned it. On top of that, you’ll feel a pull to learn new things that you’re passionate about, so don’t hesitate to finally sign up for that free work course being offered.
Throughout July, Mars, the planet of action, fires you up with some serious take-charge energy. You’ll get the basic life crap out of the way, so you can have plenty of time to play. When the Sun shifts into your work sector on the 22nd, you'll crave recognition for all the hard work you’ve been doing. Don’t be afraid to speak up about what you’ve done. You put in the grunt work—now it’s time to get props for it.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22–DECEMBER 21)
You're the boss of your resources, Sag, so this month, expect to spend a lot of time figuring out how much you want to pass around. The new moon on the 2nd brings up a chance to pool funds with someone else. Do you and your BFF want to go in on a Netflix subscription or nah? Plus, the full moon on the 16th is in your house of money, making you wonder how much you’re willing to stretch your finances to get what you want.
And you’re going to want plenty. All the astrological action at the end of the month (the Sun in Leo on the 22nd, Venus in Leo on the 27th, and new moon on the 31st) makes you want to be **unlimited** in life. You'll desire to go everywhere and do everything, and that’s totally okay. Just, ya know, budget first.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22–JANUARY 19)
It’s the halfway mark of your birthday year (happy half bday, Cap!), and that’s a BFD. You’ll suddenly be super aware of the fact that half of the year is already gone. What have you achieved that you set out to do, and how much do you still need to accomplish?
Btw: If you’ve been thinking about asking for a raise, now's the time. The full moon on the 16th is your full moon (i.e. it’s in your sign), making it feel super strong for you. So, if you don't have the life you want, what are you going to do about it? Don’t stress too hard—the answers will eventually come.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20–FEBRUARY 18)
The new moon on the 2nd is happening in a part of your chart about your everyday life, meaning you gotta pay your dues before you can get what you want (which, okay, fair). Expect to feel that in both big and small ways, like folding your laundry so you can go have fun, or working a day job so you can afford to hit up open mic nights after hours. When in doubt, think about what you should do now to get the life you want later.
When Mercury goes retrograde on the 7th opposite your sign, you’ll suddenly be inspired by other people. If they can achieve their dreams, there’s no reason you can’t, too. Just make sure to keep your boundaries this month: Don’t be afraid to speak up when something just isn’t for you.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19–MARCH 20)
You’re ready to kick back this month, Pisces, and the universe is here. for. it. The new moon on the 2nd is happening in your house of enjoying life, so why fight it? You’ll be flooded with invites to BBQs, parties, and getaways, making it the perfect time to just have fun in the sun.
Mars and Mercury are in a sector of your chart about the daily routine of life, reminding you to get basic sh*t done in between all that fun. Don’t ignore the laundry, cleaning, trash, etc. or it will seriously come back to bite you. Btw, if you have a roommate, don’t hesitate to put your foot down about sharing responsibilities. While you’re happy to do your part, that doesn’t mean you should do everything. You have another party to get to, after all…
