February 19 – March 20
You’ve been a bit of a loner lately, leaving your friends out in the cold, so do your best to make some time for them this month. Since you love chilling out at the house, have a sleepover with a few of your closest pals. After a few bottles of wine, a cheesy movie and one of those complicated board games all the adult nerds are into these days, you’ll remember how good it is to have social interaction.
March 21 – April 19
With fire as your ruling element, you can be a bit of a hot head. Tread lightly this month to avoid accidentally blowing up on a friend and risking a strong relationship just because you get a little too honest. Whether or not you’re right, what you say or think doesn’t matter when you say it at the wrong time.
April 20 – May 20
Venus is the planet that rules your sign and it shows — you’re a very sensual and romantic person. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, make some plans with the person closest to you for a romantic evening or a best friend date. Get some drinks at a quiet bar or check out a new movie at home.
May 21 – June 20
You hate falling into a routine, and lately work has you feeling beat. It’s time to get some quality Gemini time with yourself and do something that brings you joy. Even if it’s something simple like buying a new album on iTunes or getting a bunch of pointless magazines to read, treat yourself to a little something this month.
June 21 – July 22
You’ve been nesting pretty hard lately, but you’re still feeling uninspired. Get on Pinterest and find any stupid DIY project to keep your mind and hands busy this month. Just make sure it’s not too big of a project, or at least price it beforehand, so you don’t end up wasting too much money on something that’s supposed to be fun.
July 23 – August 22
For Leos, Sunday is your day to shine and live like a king. This month will be a busy one for you. Even if you have plans on every Sunday, make some time elsewhere in the week to relax and have some one-on-one time with your bestie or partner. Sometimes you can accidentally be so self-centered that you forget about them.
August 23 – September 22
You work too hard, and you’re already on the quick path to burning yourself out this year… and it just started! You’re already looking at your vacation time and thinking how you can use it ASAP. Slow down a little — but stay focused — and plan a three-day weekend for yourself. Even if you just stay home on the couch, you’ll enjoy turning your brain off for just a bit.
September 23 – October 22
Life’s been a little crazy lately, and it’s got you down in the dumps. However, when a Libra has a pity party, it ends up being a month long thing. Do your best to stay distracted from whatever is under your skin this month. Dwelling on it will only make it worse. Talk out any problems with the people involved, or just go ahead and get over it to save yourself some time.
October 23 – November 21
You get swept up in new flings and romances rather easily, whether it be people or hobbies. It’s a great idea to have fun, but make sure you don’t put your friends and other obligations on the back burner this month. They might not be there for you when the honeymoon is over and you realize you miss them.
November 22 – December 21
This month will be a very trying one for you since you have no problem being too blunt and honest to the people you love. Someone close to you will reach out to you for advice on a tough issue, but remember to think before you speak. Answer too quickly or judge too harshly and you could end up with one less friend.
December 22 – January 19
This year is chugging along, and you’ve finally found your rhythm. Reward yourself for all your hard work with a practical splurge, like a nice watch or a new purse. Just make sure whatever you treat yourself to is something useful so you can have a daily reminder of all the hard work that went into it.
