Aries March 21 – April 19
From rethinking friendships and career goals to falling more in love with your own environment, as well as reevaluating and rediscovering your own personal values, core beliefs and truths—these next two months are going to be jam-packed with reflection, renewal and reconnection. Remember that your inner world always reflects the outer world and spending time getting clear on what makes you feel happiest, safest and most comfortable with yourself will have the biggest impact on the type of life you live.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Although you are usually not a spotlight seeker, you shine comfortably in it nonetheless. Due to your grounded nature, others also usually benefit when you are feeling seen and loved. During this time, however, there could be some intense jealousy from relationships that you would not expect under normal circumstances. It’s just that right now the universe may be favoring you a little more than usual. And why wouldn’t it, dear Taurus? You absolutely deserve all the accolades, gifts and blessings that may be bestowed upon you now. This is a season of receiving and believing, so go with it and enjoy being the star that you are.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
Questioning everything is nothing new for you, Gemini; however, you may be more inclined to dig much deeper than you normally do during this time. Who am I? What do I want? What does it all mean?
While there may be some existential seeking on the horizon for you, the good news is you always find the answers. It may require a cleaning house of sorts (think of it as spring cleaning for the soul), but you will have a much better grasp on your life’s meaning and purpose by the time it’s all done.
And in true Gemini fashion, don’t be afraid to take second and third looks in order to get the full picture. It’s leveling-up season for you, but isn’t that just how you like it?
Cancer June 21 – July 22
You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs, and sometimes you can’t move forward unless you take a few steps back. Perspective is your best friend during this time, Cancer. Reviewing what we’ve learned so far is the only way we can truly comprehend the lessons we’ve learned and the progress we’ve made.
And while the journey is yours to walk alone, the path is lined with friends, family and supporters who want to see you win. Reaching out to and leaning on others whenever you need to will only help you in achieving your goals faster and easier. Remembering the old adage “a friend in need is a friend indeed” would serve you well here.
Leo July 23 – August 22
Right now it’s not about what you know but who you know, lovely Leo. Connections, networking and friends in the right places will be all very useful at this time as growth or expansion in your career is highlighted. But it’s always a give and take, isn’t it? You may be asked to reevaluate close personal relationships as well as long-held foundations that may no longer fit into your new long-term goals. Falling back in love with yourself by remembering who you once were and what you wanted to be is the healthiest thing you can do.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
If you’ve been spending too much time, energy and focus on others and what they can do and bring to you, it’s time to recenter and realign with your own self by evaluating what YOU can do for you. Ask yourself positively affirming “why” questions: Why am I the whole package? Why do I always know what to do? Why does everything I touch turn to gold? Your analyzing brain will work to answer these questions and provide you with the self-confidence you need to turn your attention inward and grow yourself into the idealized version you’ve long held in your mind.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Maybe you love what you do, but does it love you back? Maybe you just convinced yourself to settle for the life you’re in without actually taking a deeper look to see if this is really what you want. Now is the time to do just that, Libra. If you aren’t finding joy, fulfillment, or even contentment in your daily life, it’s time to take a second look. What needs to change in order for you to be happy? It could be a simple few tweaks or it could be a complete overhaul. Whatever the case, it’s time to start prioritizing your happiness. Take the steps now for the long-run payoff.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
You’re not known to embrace change or let others in, but you may find yourself doing both of these things during this time. Do you even recognize yourself right now, Scorpio? It may be a little jarring, but it’s most definitely a good thing. A makeover of yourself and/or your home may be just what the doctor ordered. A scorpion will shed its exoskeleton when its outgrown the previous version of itself, so this renewal of yourself is simply nature at work. Feeling more empowered and secure in love and career is a vibe that is available to you now. Go ahead and allow yourself to receive all of that.
Sagittarius November 22 -December 21
If it were up to you, Sagittarius, life would be all play and no work. Unfortunately that’s not how balance is achieved. There’s an ebb and flow to things and right now it may be a little more ebb than flow, leaving you feeling bored, forlorn and wanting.
The good news is that nothing lasts forever. The not-so-good news is that it’s time for you to buckle down and be serious. Although this is not your ideal, it is absolutely going to set you up for good times ahead. If you’re feeling resistance to something, dig a little deeper and find out exactly why and how to work through that instead of trying to go around it.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Life may feel like it’s taking on an “if it isn’t one thing it’s another” vibe right now, but this is only because you need to get better at loosening up, letting go and enjoying the ride. Trying to control everything all the time never works, except to raise your anxiety levels. It may be a time to try the opposite of what you would normally do. Whatever method of madness you employ, the main directive is to have more fun regardless of the endless list of responsibilities that you believe should come first. This could be a very enjoyable lesson if approached correctly.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Adapting and overcoming is nothing new to you, Aquarius. Finding new and innovative ways of being, doing and believing is a typical day in the life of you. If you’re feeling like things need to switch up, chances are you’re not wrong. It may be time to move on and move away from people, places and spaces to yet again embrace the unknown. Maybe it’s even time to adopt a new identity? Whatever the case may be, life is shifting before your eyes and since you’re not one to just let things happen to you, it’s time to grab the wheel and steer this boat in a brand-new direction. Wherever you’re headed and whatever you’re going to do, you can be sure it will be unique, interesting and exciting.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Out of all the signs, you understand best that nothing is real. Free-falling through reality is a comfort zone for you, dear Pisces, so long as you remember you’re built for this stuff. You’re not like the others and so your experience will be unlike any other. Embrace this. The beauty of your magical existence is that you know you can make up the rules as you go along. Don’t like your current reality? Simply change it. For most, this would cause an existential crisis, but for you, it’s just another day in wonderland. Rolling with the punches (or ocean waves), comes naturally to you, so grab your surfboard because the tide is coming in.
