ARIES (March 21 – April 19) Hibernation never felt so good, Aries! With Pisces swimming upstream into Mars, it’ll be hard for you to muster the motivation to complete nearly any task. This, too, shall pass and instead of stressing about your deadline three weeks away from Thursday, try de-stressing with a nice down comforter.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) Back to the grind, Taurus! Sure, you may be sick of hearing about all of your friends hashtagging “New Year, New You!” eight times a day, but, for you, those words do carry a significance. Opportunities at work never looked more promising—don’t settle on Jan. 10.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) Looking good, Gemini! Is that a new gel in your hair or is it just Venus lining up perfectly with your chart? Your looks will be on your radar come Jan. 12. Don’t be afraid to try something new—maybe it’s time to dust off that fringe suede coat from ‘77.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22) Curious about your cash, Cancer? If your bank account has you wondering what’s worth spending on and what’s worth saving for, the stars are here to help you make a few expedited decisions on Jan. 14. Good news about your finances will arrive in an unfamiliar way—don’t ignore any emails or phone calls from your third cousin once removed!
LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22) We know what you’re looking for, Leo! Can’t seem to shake the thought of long walks on the beach and the sweet sound of serenading Spanish guitar riffs? Don’t panic—you’re ruled by your heart after all, and Venus is here to keep romance on the brain—especially on Jan. 13. Give into your inner romantic—your partner will thank you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Knock knock, Virgo! Who’s there? A pile of cash. Literally—money is headed your way on Jan. 13. Try to act surprised when your boss offers you a raise—wouldn’t want him to shoot the messenger. In any event, you will be recognized for your hard work and finally no longer have an excuse to avoid getting the garbage disposal fixed.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) Thinking about the one that got away, Libra? Well, don’t worry; your love story isn’t finished just yet. Keep an ear and an eye out—you might hear from and receive a message from a long lost love. Never thought your high school sweetheart would resurface in your life? That’s the magic of the stars—don’t be shy on Jan. 11. A little rekindling never killed anyone.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) What’s that sound, Scorpio? It’s your partner screaming and pounding his or her fists into the table, thanks to your latest IKEA project. Yep, it’s that time again. Time to redecorate and feng shui your home. On Jan. 14, take the time to assess what needs to go in your humble abode.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) A romantic getaway is nigh, Sagittarius! What’s more romantic that spending a weekend with your one true love? Getting out of town and exploring a new place with a bunch of strangers. Dance all night on the bar tops and give out a fake name at Starbucks—you have no one to answer to—live it up on Jan. 15!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) Take it all the way to the bank, Capricorn! The holidays got a little more expensive than you were hoping for, but there’s good news. You’ve got no need to spend anymore. Map out a savings plan on Jan. 12. Those $5 shakes were getting expensive and pretty counteractive to your New Year’s fitness plan anyways.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) It may be a new year, but that doesn’t mean you can just splurge on whatever your heart desires, Aquarius! Costs are going up and it seems, while you may have no noticed, your bank account certainly has. Watch out for excess spending beginning on Jan. 13. Lotto tickets are tempting, but if you keep guessing the same (wrong) numbers, there’s no point.
PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20) You’ve got the winning argument, Pisces! Whatever battle you’re trying to win, whatever pitch you’re trying to sell—it’s a go on Jan. 12. You’re in charge and in control and any idea you present will be met with praise and recognition. (Even that idea about a mandatory company team bowling night.)
