Sagittarius season and New Year’s beginnings

Finals stressing you out? Take comfort (maybe?) in your horoscope!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21)
It’s your season, Sagittarius! Your ruling planet — Jupiter — enters Aries this month, heightening your already fiery spirit and pushing you forward. This is a time for adventures and connections with loved ones, with the Sun entering Capricorn to bring you that sweet, sweet, birthday cash. Go forth and make great strides in the things you love. The planets are on your side for getting things done.

Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19)
The second half of the month is your season, Capricorn. A new moon in your sign at the end of the month is the ideal time to start manifesting your new year. Take this month as a downhill slope to gain momentum for what you want out of 2023. Get a jump-start on your New Year’s resolutions and start building positive habits into your day-to-day life. Treat yourself to something nice and shiny. You’ve earned it.

Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18)
Aquarius’ ruling planet, Uranus, is in conjunction with Mercury this month in order to help you effectively communicate with yourself and others. Introspection can be a good thing, but be careful not let it consume you. Journaling or writing poetry to share with others can help you expand your sense of self and connect with your loved ones. Patience with yourself and others this holiday season will carry you far. Deep breaths. You’ve got this.

Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20)
Neptune’s retrograde, which started back in June granting heightened intuition and achievement, will finally reach its conclusion at the start of December. With your guiding planet no longer at its most active in your life, things may seem to slow down or get shaken up somewhat. Plan for things to not go how you thought they would. Lucky for you though, Jupiter — your other ruling planet — will be making a return to your sign at the end of December, and staying through the beginning of May. Use this time to reflect on your year and you’ll find that the dots will start to connect as a roadmap for your year to come.

Aries (March 21–April 19)
Your ruling planet Mars will be at its brightest and most visible this month. There’s going to be a strong pull to travel as Mars enters Gemini, so acting on those whims may bring you new opportunities. Let yourself get creative and independent this month. Treat yourself on a spiritual level. Give yourself some much needed alone time to recharge. The holidays will be jam-packed, so prepare yourself for them accordingly.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Your year has slowly but surely been opening you up to acknowledge and accept emotional, romantic and professional success. Where Venus and Mercury’s conjunction this month is less likely to go well for Gemini, you will be provided an opportunity to rise to the occasion. A strong social connection formed this month can help usher you into a new era of self-discovery down the line. Academic, project and travel plans can flourish if you take care of yourself and are intentional in your forward steps. You’ve got this!

Gemini (May 21–June 21)
Talk about kicking off the season strong! Geminis were graced with a full moon in their sign on Dec. 7, the Geminid meteor shower this month. Radiating out from one of the constellation’s brightest stars, the meteor shower will be the most visible on the nights of Dec. 13 and 14. Expect opportunities to come your way this month. Don’t let them pass you by unnoticed or unappreciated. That being said, keep an eye on the conjunction of Venus and Mercury at the end of the month, especially as Mercury enters retrograde. Your relationships and mental stability may butt up against each other, making life feel like it’s spinning out of control. Remind yourself that with the bad, comes the good. Keep your glass half-full.

Cancer (June 22–July 22)
Cancer is the lone sign to be guided by the moon, and thus is especially susceptible to its whims. This month, the moon and Saturn enter a conjunction, putting a lot of emotional energy up against some of the strongest independent/self-focused energy for a brief time. These conflicting energies are likely to shake you in particular, so be sure to be extra kind to yourself this month, and let positive energy from others help you rechange. Doing something active and good for your body will do wonders for your mind.

Leo (July 23–Aug. 22)
You have a lot of pent-up — likely anxious — energy this month, Leo. The holidays are a perfect time to let it all out. The sun is moving through your 5th house, bringing a new surge of fun and creativity to your life this month. Don’t let Venus’s opposition to Mars’ retrograde on Dec. 1 hold you back, though it might leave you feeling like everyone is picking you and your work apart. Everything will soon fall into place, and you’ll feel back on top of your world again. Make time for the people you actually enjoy this month and use it as an opportunity to recharge your social battery. Let it carry you through into the new year ahead.

Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22)
Mercury also rules your sign, Virgo, meaning the conjunction of Mercury and Venus at the end of the month will leave you with some positives to look forward to as well. Be prepared to have a lot more people suddenly on your wavelength than you’re used to. This could greatly deepen connections and open up new relationships or friendships. However, if it’s left ignored and shut out, it could cause you even more problems when Mercury enters retrograde. This applies to new career and financial opportunities as well this month. Be kind to yourself, but especially kind to others. It’s a smaller world than you think.

Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 23)
Not unlike Taurus, Libra’s year has been a gradual build towards something better. Self image and health show promise of improvement at the Mercury and Venus conjunction. Your mind has the opportunity to rest in self reflection and love before you rush into the new year. Relationships and internal satisfaction can bloom in this moment of peace. Be kind to yourself to prepare for Mercury’s retrograde at the end of the month. Getting a jump-start on your finals is more likely to relieve you stress in the near future. Just don’t burn yourself out trying to cram everything in.

Scorpio (Oct. 24–Nov. 21)
December is a gradual incline for you, Scorpio. Venus’ opposition to Mars’ retrograde on Dec. 1 may have left you struggling with self-perception and your relationships with others. Similar to Aries, Mars being at its closest and brightest will bring you a much needed sense of realignment and energy this month. Taking time during the second half of the month to recharge as much as possible between deadlines and events will be crucial to finishing the year running instead of crawling. Making time for the little things in your day to day will carry you far.
