Horoscopes January 2015

  • Aquarius

    Jan 20—Feb 18

    New year, new you... same old Uranus. The ideas planet and Aquarius ring in the next three years together, and there’s no better pair in the cosmos. Uranus comes bearing opportunities, setting water bearers up for the next exciting phase of their lives. Uranus may be an ice giant, but it ushers in a hot 2015.

  • Aries

    March 21—April 19

    Auld Lang Syne is the musical equivalent of Mars: It pops up every year, and we don’t understand it. Mars is an acquaintance Aries will want to forget, since it gleefully stirs up trouble in early January. Keep that temper in check, and by the 10th, rams will be singing a much happier tune.

  • Cancer

    June 21—July 22

    Cancers are incredibly nurturing and domestic—they’re the least selfish shellfish around. Thanks to needy Mercury though, crabs can turn into stage-five clingers. Co-dependency isn’t a typical trait, and it may freak out friends and family, but by the 15th, the possessive period (and all this alliteration) will pass.

  • Capricorn

    Dec 22—Jan 19

    Like a cosmic infomercial pitchman, Mercury wants nothing more than to empty some Capricorn wallets. When the greedy planet goes retrograde in mid-January, it makes goats get super retail happy. When the desire for spontaneous purchases rears its pricey head, rein it in.

  • Gemini

    May 21—June 20

    Sneaky Neptune is dedicated to pulling the wool over Gemini eyes for the next nine years. Luckily, the third sign of the zodiac doesn’t suffer fools gladly—and certainly won’t be made to look like one. When a friend tries to pull a fast one on the 18th, tell that person that wolves in sheep’ clothing are so last year.

  • Leo

    July 23—Aug 22

    Here’s one rhyme lions won’t mind: In 2015, everything’s coming up green. Smart business decisions on the 6th will have a lasting impact all year. Pluto’s like the Wolf of Wall Street, minus the immorality and jail time. Everything it touches turns into opportunity, and it’s reaching out to Leos (and Leonardo).

  • Libra

    Sept 23—Oct 22

    There’s nothing scales like more than a solid, balanced relationship, and Uranus upsets that delicate harmony when the clock strikes 2015. When a fierce desire for independence develops, honor it. Some blissful alone time is just the thing Libras need to reestablish evenness.

  • Pices

    Feb 19—March 20

    Make new friends and keep the old, one is silver and the other is… Saturn. The planet of love’s long embrace ends in January, but that doesn’t mean Heartbreak City’s around the bend. Instead, it’s a sign that fish are ready to navigate relationships solo. Welcome to Love Town, population: Pisces.

  • Sagittarius

    Nov 22—Dec 21

    The word ‘Mars’ could easily have been substituted for ‘ironic’ in Alanis Morissette’s hit. After all, Mars is totally like rain on a wedding day. The planetary party pooper tries to bring Sags down until the 17th, so counteract it with positivity. This is some good advice that Sags really should take.

  • Scorpio

    Oct 23—Nov 21

    When the fortune wheel was spun on the eve of 2015, it landed right on Scorpio. Jupiter, the planet of luck, will stick with scorpions for the first seven months of the year. Like a cosmic 401K, it matches what’s put in—so the harder scorps work, the bigger their return will be.

  • Taurus

    April 20—May 20

    Know those people who get invited to New Year’s parties out of obligation? The ones guaranteed to get over-served and then overstay? That’s how Mars acts on the 12th when it goes retrograde. Lines of communication go haywire until the 14th, so important info shouldn’t be texted or emailed. Make a call like it’s 1999.

  • Virgo

    Aug 23—Sept 22

    Virgos would rather have one great pal than a group of fair-weather buds. Mars, on the other hand, has friendships as thin as its atmosphere. Under the red planet’s influence, Virgos form bonds much faster than normal. Don’t be surprised (or upset) when they break in February.
