CAPRICORN [dec 22 to jan 19] // This first month is a roller coaster for you, Capricorn. You come strutting your stuff in the first week of the new year but after that, it may feel kinda rough. But don’t worry, you aren’t the only one who is feeling down (ahem, Leos I am looking at you). It’s going to be okay, this down period won’t last very long. And after that, you will be right back at square ONE! Let me tell you, Capricorn, things will get better — just be sure you have a good support system. This new year may be a little overwhelming, but this won’t last long.

AQUARIUS [jan 20 to feb 18] // Take your time getting in 2019. Just go in slow and easy. Things can get very overwhelming for you very quickly and rushing into things this year can cause a lot of stress. You may also be looking to change to change part something about yourself and once again you should take it slowly. This year you should pick something you enjoy and master it. Become the best at it and rock it. Take it slow this first month my water friends. Breathe and be happy.

PISCES [feb 19 to mar 20] // Pisces, this month could either be full of great new things or be very awkward. Things will happen this month that will force you to take a step back and think. You may be gaining some new friends but losing some old. Change is coming and how you look at it will determine if it is good or bad. You have to keep an open mind about things and keep your head high because some big opportunities could be coming your way and you will want to be ready. But be sure not to get overwhelmed. New opportunities can lead to stress. Just keep your priorities in order—as hard as that may be!

ARIES [mar 21 to april 19] // Happy new year, Aries! It’s time for a whole new of getting roasted by the truly superior Leo! You entered this year like your true tornado-self and went absolutely insane. You haven’t seem to realize that nothing much has changed since last year, just the date. You made a million resolutions but have already broken all of them. With Mars soon coming into your sign will make you absolutely insane. This really isn’t what your month is going to be like but a warning to all the other signs to run and hide because a literal tornado is coming.  

TAURUS [april 20 to may 20] // Capricorn season is a confusing one for you indeed, Taurus. See, you’re going to want to burst out of the gates right away, but try to hold yourself back. And for once in your life, let someone give you some advice; don’t be so bull-headed. You must keep your feet on the ground at all times, and even if you get distracted somehow, get your head out of the stars right away. There are many things coming your way and if you’re not focused on them [meaning you think everything will be handed to you perfectly] you might intercept them the wrong way. Just remember that everything happens for a reason, even if the thing seems bad at the moment. There’s always a chance it’s going to get better! Not saying this year will be your year for sure, but since it started off positively, there is hope for the upcoming months!

GEMINI [may 21 to june 20] // It’s okay, Gemini, it really is. Oh, wait, no it’s not! But maybe it is. We really could not tell you either way. Pollux is saying one thing and Castor is saying a whole other thing. It’s confusing having to deal with two sides in one sign all the time but hey, there’s not one other sign here who deals with it as well as you can. Anyway, we’re just here to tell you that right now might not seem like an ideal time to do anything but worry, but grab your Virgo and your Libra friend and just let it out. We’re not sure why January makes so many signs cry, but we’ve heard it’s a healthy way to reduce stress. Things will start to get better as soon as Spring comes and saves you, Gemini. You automatically function better.

CANCER [june 21 to july 22] // Let’s be real here, Cancer. No sugarcoating. Nothing. The stars have aligned this month to make sure the first month of your new year is all about you. But honestly, no one here is surprised. Take all the time in the world to focus on self-care and relationships that will probably, most likely, if not definitely fail. Not trying to be harsh, we just read the star charts and give you a probability of your future. You might get the chance of meeting someone though, but there is a catch as always: they’ll have just as many problems as you. What can we say? Cancerians tend to have more problems than others. But hey, take this month’s reading with a grain of salt, and try to make the best of your Capricorn season!

LEO [july 23 to aug 22] // Congrats, Leo! Without realizing it (or maybe you have noticed it) your life has been changing since February 2017 thanks to a series of eclipses. Now I understand you are coming off a pretty tough December and that’s okay but now it is finally time to start celebrating everything that has changed in the last 2 years! You have grown a lot and become a new person. Not everything that has changed has been good but keep in mind something good may come from them in the future. You have one more push from the stars this month to promote your ideas and talents. Leos, last month was absolute ASS, but this month you have to remember to stay positive. You have to understand your life is not perfect and there are just certain things you have to get over and move on. I know you feel like you won’t be able to get over whatever it is but you will. Stay Strong this month Leos!

VIRGO [aug 23 to sept 22] //  Whoever said that your happy party has to end right now, Virgo? Your new year is just beginning! If you did happen to make some New Year’s resolutions for yourself, don’t give up on them just yet, and just because we’re already into January doesn’t mean you can’t make some more resolutions for yourself. Stop cleaning your room, and go out and discover. You are a mutable sign, sis, you’re supposed to go with the flow, so DO IT. Now, if you’re a Junior Virgo, you might have a bit of worry coming your way because of those standardized tests and Seniors you’re worrying because of EVERYTHING, find your nearest Gemini friend, hold them close and just have a nice good cry. Right now might seem like the worst month and zodiac season in the world, but hey it’s almost Valentine’s Day, so it can only get worse from here on out until that awful holiday passes!

LIBRA [sept 23 to oct 22] // You’re most likely one of those people that keeps their Christmas trees up past Christmas because of you and your family who claim that it’s one of those “year-round trees”. False. The truth is, you’re too lazy to take it down or just feeling extra sentimental. Because of your extra emotions, thanks to the eclipse at the beginning of the months, you’re going to cry a lot. Emphasis on a lot. You might see a puppy when you’re driving through North Park. Time to cry. You might watch The Office. Time to cry. You might think about the midterm season. Time to cry. Whatever it might be, you might find yourself crying a lot. Not to worry, a good healthy cry is needed once every new moon or two [get it, cause it was a new moon eclipse]. Sorry for that awful pun, it’s not really my specialty, but to be honest it’s not quite yours either.

SCORPIO [oct 23 to nov 21] // For some reason, you’re very inclined to meet some strangers this new year, Scorpio. As per usual, you’re also going to take control of everything that you possibly can and try to change things for the better. Don’t let that temper of yours get in the way, though, it might just mess everything up. And also, start writing your to-do list down somewhere before you forget your plans again because we’re pretty sure your friends can’t afford you to cancel on them again. It’s really not a nice thing to do, and you know it. In fact, maybe because of this new year, you can get a new attitude as well as fixing your organization issues! And who knows, you might even be able to attract someone completely new and fresh that you would have never thought could like you. Like ever.

SAGITTARIUS [nov 22 to dec 21] // Boy oh boy is it the year for you my archer friends. 2019 is here and you are ready to take it by storm. It’s time to mix things up and change your routine. Try new things! Take some risks! Be ambitious! These new things can lead to some pretty exciting things that you could really enjoy. Anyway, Sagittarius, new year new you! With some hard work and determination, you may have some cash coming your way. Enjoy your new experiences Sagittarius!
