Whether you’re a firm believer in your horoscope, or you just read them for fun, horoscopes have always been a point of interest among those who come across them. I personally think they’re exciting to read, regardless of the validity behind them or not. Of course, I’m no expert, so take these summaries as you will and have a lovely month!


Capricorn (December 22- January 19)

This month will be one for you to do the things that you want to do for yourself but have been holding back on. So get that record player, those pants you’ve been eyeing, or watch that movie! You deserve it! Something might go wrong for you professionally, but have no fear. All of your hard work will pay off eventually and you will receive the credit and recognition you deserve. This month will be one full of strong emotions, so remember to keep your cool!


Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

This month will be one for you to reassess things professionally. Figure out what your priorities are and what they should be. After working tirelessly at your current goals, recalibrating is necessary to truly move forward. Be sure not to overwork yourself, self care is a priority as well!


Pisces (February 19-March 20)

This month will have you feeling a bit more impulsive than usual, so maybe press pause before you buy that new phone. With that being said, this month will also be one full of you questioning the “meaning of life” and your own beliefs. Read something new, maybe it’ll help sort everything out! Speak your mind! Take any mistakes you make in your stride, dwelling on them for too long will only hurt you this month. Take action on what goes wrong, especially in school. 


Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’ll be feeling extra motivated this month, professionally and personally. Reinventing yourself and pushing yourself to meet your goals will take priority overall, but you’re going to have to make compromises at some point. Don’t get too flustered but, you might have to walk away from things that might sound good but are truly a toxic point in your life. Truly take a moment to pause and think about what your goals truly are, and how you’re working to achieve them.


Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This month will just be one to get through for you; just working through the week to get to the weekend. Let go of something that’s weighing you down. But, have no fear, for that loss will soon be replaced by insightful ideas coming your way. Let them out and see where it takes you. 


Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This month will be one where you want to connect. Call that friend, send that special someone a text, or just spend a little extra time with your loved ones! Open up to them about what’s bothering you, it’ll make the biggest difference. Clean out the physical clutter in your life; it’s weighing you down. A consistent routine and big decisions will be your friends this month as the former will be crucial to guide the latter to go well. 


Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This will be a month where you question the “why?” behind your actions. What are your goals? Pick up a little something to help you relax, because this will be a month full of tough questions. Don’t be afraid to ask for other people’s opinions, it might be the trick to clear up your own. 


Leo (July 23- August 22)

You’ll be in the mood to splurge this month, but remember to be mindful of your finances, you might need some extra cash soon. It makes sense that you’d want to spend money on trivial items: you’re trying to find a sense of self. That goal you were pursuing may not be coming into shape, but don’t lose yourself because of it, just stay afloat until next month. Patience is definitely a virtue this month!


Virgo (August 23-September 22)

This is the month to go get what you want and deserve. Talk through big decisions with loved ones because chances are, their advice will be the right one. Positive vibes and confidence are coming your way, so don’t be afraid to ask that question or try that new thing. 


Libra (September 23-October 22)

Happy birthday Libra! You might feel down and overwhelmed, but great things are coming your way! You will be extra considerate and prudent with money this month, and that is not necessarily a bad thing. Reassess your relationships and don’t be afraid to create new ones and leave the bad ones behind. With everything happening in the world, take a break on your birthday and spend the day on you and only you. 


Scorpio (October 23- November 21)

This month is one to go after the goals that you have set for yourself. No more procrastinating on the project or that essay. Get it done! Remember to keep a good school-life balance, and you should be a-okay this month. Friendship will be such a crucial source of serotonin for you, so spend some time strengthening those relationships. This month will also be a great one to put down your phone and live for the little things.


Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

You’ll want to connect with your friends a little extra this month, but remember to social distance and keep your masks on! You’ve been getting things done, and this month will be no different, so keep crushing it! Catch up with an old friend to satisfy those nostalgic pangs and strengthen your relationship with your past. As someone who is usually pretty positive and go-lucky, maybe this month could be one for you to delve into your true emotions.
