Jan 20—Feb 18
(Jan 20—Feb 18)
Unlike other planets, Jupiter’s retrograde is far from chaotic. As it reverses course, it ushers in a quiet, peaceful time of self-reflection. It’s difficult for Aquarians to say no to plans, but now is the time to rest, embrace solitude and host a whole lot of parties—for one.
March 21—April 19
(March 21—April 19)
After three years in Aries (and four more ahead), Uranus has finally quit yelling “surprise” every month—though it hasn’t stopped dishing them out. The unpredictable planet loves to throw rams for a playful loop, roll with the punches on the 9th and expect the unexpected on the 28th.
June 21—July 22
(June 21—July 22)
Crabs are perplexing people. On the one claw, they love large groups, but they’re also quick to hide in the sand. During a big gathering on the 10th, don’t succumb to a sudden bout of shyness. Scuttle away too soon and an intriguing person won’t have time to say hi.
Dec 22—Jan 19
(Dec 22—Jan 19)
Maybe Capricorn’s born with it or maybe it’s Pluto. The dwarf planet is focused on total reinvention, which is why it sticks around until 2023 (no, that’s not a typo). It won’t lengthen lashes, but it does help Caps shed insecurity and feel more comfortable in their skins.
May 21—June 20
(May 21—June 20)
The new moon on the 24th brings a fresh start and a period of reflection for Geminis. After being run ragged last month, consider September a charging station. Take an inventory of life and only re-stock the things (and people) that increase health and happiness levels.
July 23—Aug 22
(July 23— Aug 22)
Thanks to Jupiter’s continued influence, Leos are luck magnets yet again. But the cosmos is a fickle friend. The moment lions take fortune for granted is the moment it will vanish. Protect that pot of astrological gold by giving back whenever possible.
Sept 23—Oct 22
(Sept 23—Oct 22)
Anxious scales love lists, but it’s easy to get so busy “to-doing” that they miss out on the moment. The 27th brings an exquisite day of love and happiness and Libras must force themselves to stop and relish it. Sure, a picture’s worth a thousand words—but a memory is priceless.
Feb 19—March 20
(Feb 19—March 20)
Dreamy Neptune is an enigma and as hard as it is to figure out, it’s even harder to shake. It rules from 2011-2025, teaching Pisces to be less codependent and more self-assured. Neptune’s also a bit of a magician, enjoy the tricks it has up its cosmic sleeves on the 18th and 20th.
Nov 22—Dec 21
(Nov 22—Dec 21)
From the 13th on, Sagittarians will feel like stars in a one-person episode of The Young and the Restless, thanks to antsy Mars. Fight the fidget by making lots of plans and steering clear of any evil twin siblings who return from beyond the grave.
Oct 23—Nov 21
(Oct 23—Nov 21)
Like walking, talking polygraphs, Scorpios are nearly always able to spot a liar. When Mercury enters on the 27th, this intuition grows stronger. When a close pal fails the test at month’s end, a tough call ensues: Is the friendship strong enough to survive a falsehood?
April 20—May 20
(April 20—May 20)
Get ready to join Neil Young’s Moon Appreciation Group. The full harvest moon on the 9th yields a month of glorious extravagance for deserving Taurans. Relationships will flourish, friendships will deepen and pockets may even fatten thanks to an unexpected windfall on the 20th. Oh, and feel free to go dancin’ in the light.
Aug 23—Sept 22
(Aug 23 Sep 22)
If ever there was a sign that sweated the small stuff, it’s Virgo. Their nitpicking drives pals nuts, but that same attention to detail makes Virgos essential employees. Wear practical shoes to the office on the 17th. It’s finally time to climb the ladder at work.
