Let me tell you about the good, the bad, and the gorgeous this month, babes. The first week of February is likely to be a contentious one, as intense Pluto and unpredictable Uranus mess with Venus and Mercury, the planets of diplomacy and communication. The results can bring about a crisis within your relationships, as it’ll bring things out into the open—for better or worse.

From the 11th through the 17th, go-getter Mars will sextile fun-loving Jupiter, and this will be a great time for connecting with loved ones or getting your swerve on. Just don’t act too impulsively, lovers.

The month ends with a Neptune conjunction to the Sun from the 27th through 29th; this energy will make you either feel really dreamy and idealistic or straight exhausted. Hold off from any life-altering decisions on those dates because your thinking may be more romantic than realistic.

Aquarius: January 20–February 18

Pick your battles wisely, lover. This month, passions are running high and you may be feeling extra ambitious or pretty agitated, depending on your nature. If you’ve been feeling stuck lately, this is a great time to motivate and move on. If that’s not possible, be extra kind and patient with your friends ‘cause your frustrations are likely to leak out at innocent bystanders. On the 8th, there will be a new moon in your sign, making it a great time to feel into new possibility and potentially attract new people or possibilities to you. This month, you can be a total shero baller, so get out there and get yours. Just make sure to notice the people who are helping you out and show them appreciation. Collaborate in generous ways, even if you’re on a mission to do you right now, Aquarius.

Pisces: February 19–March 20

There is a time for everything, but it sucks when you wish the time was now for a thing that just isn’t flowing. You need some QT to get your head in order, lover. Instead of piling other people’s needs and wants on top of your already overwhelmed head, try slowing down and chilling out on your own for a minute. Don’t worry so much about spending time with dates or your fam if you’re feeling stressed or if you just need a breather—anyone who’s got your back will understand. This Leap Year happens to bring with it some mystical vibes, so keep your senses alert on the 27th through the 28th, but don’t make any serious decisions on those dates if you can avoid it. You may be offered something totally ideal, or it may be a beautiful illusion, and only time will tell which one it is.

Aries: March 21–April 19

The stars want you to pinpoint your healthiest place between individuality and compromise, and will give you ample opportunity to figure it out this month. The attitude with which you take on your challenges will define where you go and how it feels getting there, Aries. If you’re trying to create security, you’re likely to be hella frustrated this month—especially in the first half—because you’re not supposed to have it. Now’s your time for growth, and your chance to negotiate your needs and desires with the bishes you love as well as the ones you just have to work with. It’s easiest to make good decisions if you’re coming from a place of self-love, so this Valentine’s Day, look in the mirror and repeat after me with love in your eyes: “Self: will you be mine? I love you so very much and promise to treat you right.”

­Taurus: April 20–May 20

No matter what it feels like, you’re not running out of time. If you allow yourself to be driven by a sense of panic and scarcity, then you’ll be looking too hard. If you’re too intent on finding the right person, job, or feeling, you’ll end up ignoring the only thing that you actually have power over: yourself. Focus your attention on how you participate and how you take care of your feels, Taurus. You don’t need to be nice all the time; you need to be authentic. Create a life that feels true to you instead of one that you think will abate your fears. It’ll help if you take a collaborative approach to life this month. Ask questions and share what you really think. You can’t control what’ll happen tomorrow, but you can develop greater acceptance and happiness with where you’re at here and now. It’ll create the perfect foundation for your desires to become a reality, I promise.

Gemini: May 21–June 2

When you’re running on empty, it’s easy to feel like things are falling apart, even when you’re totally fine. This month, you need to install some serious self-care habits to help you make it through. You’ve been going through a major shake-up, and whether it’s wonderful or a pain in your adorable behind, the end result is the same: you need a break, and you better take one before you start acting weird. This year is a Leap Year, and from the 27th through 29th, you may feel plagued by some serious exhaustion or a case of the sads. It’s no big deal if you take it in stride, but if you continue to ride yourself so hard, you’ll enjoy the worst of what these days can bring. Manage your anxieties, and you’ll be surprised at how much other things in your life are improved for it.

Cancer: June 22–July 22

It’s wicked awesome to learn from your past by reviewing it, Moonchild. If you can understand why you did or didn’t do your part in past relationships, that’s huge. If you can gain peace around why you chose to consent to the things that didn’t work for you, that’s even bigger. Take the time to look back at your past loves and likes so that you can accept them and move on. They say that “forgiveness is letting go of all hope of a better past,” and they are totally right. Let your own patterns guide you away from the same old BS this month. If you’re going to let something new in your life—a love, a new dynamic, new friends—then you’ve gotta stop clinging to the past. The full Moon on the 22nd will be an especially good time to get real with your Dear Diary, and let go and move on.

Leo: July 23–August 22

If you don’t question where you’re going, you might find yourself way off in the wrong direction, Leo. You’ve been through a lot, and I don’t blame you for wanting things to chill out for a while so you can have a well-deserved break. The thing is, if you wait for your circumstances to kick your ass before you make changes, you’re basically inviting the Universe to sucker-punch you. Use the relative calm of this month to have a Come to Jesus/Buddha/Prada moment; make sure you’re going in the right direction for your heart to be truly happy and not just to maintain the status quo. If you’re gonna let new people or things into your life (which you totally should), then you need to let go of your attachments to how it used to be. When you grow, it’s inevitable that you outgrow some things, sugar. Embrace the path you’re on this month.

Virgo: August 23–September 22

When you believe in yourself, it frees up your mind from having to defend your right to think, feel, or do whatever it is that you feel called to, Virgo. Your mind is an all-powerful machine, and thank God you’ve got it, but it shouldn’t be your only tool for dealing with stress ’cause it gets all wonky on you. Pace yourself through your thoughts so that you have time to check in with what you feel. If you’re feeling insecure, don’t ask others to approve of you before you figure out if you believe in what you’re doing, lover. Once you get into a mode of trying to prove to yourself that you’re OK, you’ve already lost touch with your heart. If you’re scared, figure out what you need to take care of those feels. If something feels wrong, change it. Have healthy and loving boundaries with yourself and you’ll not only feel better, but think clearer, too.

Libra: September 23–October 22

Don’t shy away from the deep stuff this month, Libra. You’re on call to be bigger and badder than you’ve been, and you can only do it if you’re willing to take up more space. Your task is to figure out how to be more forthcoming about what you need with people before you’re totally maxed out and can’t deal. Telling people where you’re at is not being rude or mean; it’s being real. Even if your relationships have to get a bit awkward, it’s totally worth it to know that you can be yourself with those you lurv. From the 1st through the 7th, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to make nice or stand up for the truth. There’s a tension at play between what you want and what you think you can get, so talk it out with fam you trust instead of obsessing about things on your own.

Scorpio: October 23–November 21

The middle of this month is riddled with distractions and some of them may be delicious, but they’re distractions just the same. Your major themes this month are around how you listen to your inner voice and what you do with that 411. You have a tendency to push yourself even when it’d be better to yield; the reason for that is because you’re trying to avoid some unpleasant feels. Stop it, stunner. Confront the junk that’s clogging up your instincts and allowing you to run away from more than you’re running towards. The 5th through the 11th are great dates to start a new self-care regime or just connect with your body. You’re likely to reform or regress on those days, so don’t say I didn’t warn you. V-Day may be a bit emo for you with the Moon in your opposite sign. Use those vibes to get in touch with your feels rather than getting more goal-oriented in your efforts to avoid them, babe.

Sagittarius: November 22–December 21

The difference between your impulses and intuition is deep; one is a reaction to the surface, and the other comes from deep within you. Your impulses scream and shout, demanding to be heard, while your intuition is more of a whisper. Honor your inner knowing by quieting down enough to hear it, Sagittarius. Pay especially close attention to repeating themes in your life and in your dreams on the 3rd and 4th, as well as the 27th through the 29th. Your love life is going to be really engaged this month, especially leading up to V-Day. If you find yourself frustrated, it’s because you’re feeling stuck, so start listening to your gut instincts for what you can do to unstick yourself, bae. The stars may just bring you a big, beautiful, passionate encounter, too. There’s what’s good, and then there’s what’s good for now; they’re both awesome but require you to adjust your expectations accordingly. #WiseWomenFinishFirst

Capricorn: December 22–January 19

Sometimes your troubles line up to be so annoying that you have little choice but to deal with them. The first week of February has a bunch of planets in your sign, making everything feel hella up, Cappy. You’re likely to have big breakthroughs, and that’ll be either exciting or dramatic, or some hybrid of the two. You’re ready to grow deeply, but to do so, you’ll have to traverse through a passage of discomfort and uncertainty. That’s hard because when you don’t see evidence of things thriving, it’s easy to want to bounce and focus on the stuff that’s flowing more easily in your life, but that’s exactly what you shouldn’t do, BB. Make sure that the thrust of your time and effort is towards the things you value most. When it’s scary and you don’t see improvements is when you need to redouble your efforts, not back down, lover.
