Entering Aquarius season

It’s the age of Aquarius…

Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18)
Happy birthday Aquarius! Venus moved into your sign on Jan. 3, marking an exciting time for your connections with friends and loved ones. Take time to push yourself socially and open up to the people around you. You never know what could be waiting on the other side of the walls you’ve built. When Uranus — your ruling sign — ends its retrograde on Jan. 22, inspiration and progress will finally strike. Take hold of this motivation and run with it for as long as you can.

Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20)
It’s looking like a good start to your year, Pisces. Neptune, your ruling planet, is in your First House of Self, bringing sparks of inspiration and self-understanding. Plan for your future, but don’t let yourself forget to spend some time in the present, both with yourself and others. Mars is in your Fourth House of Home and Family, pushing you to fight for some stability and security in your life. Make yourself a schedule! Just make sure you’re keeping to it. Allow manifestation and hard work to propel you forward into the new year.

Aries (March 21–April 19)
2022’s end may have left you feeling spun out and exhausted, Aries, but balance in your life is coming up quick. Though your ruling planet, Mars, has been in retrograde since October, January brings you a return to feeling energized and driven. Take charge of your life and your work this month. Be assertive. It suits you.

Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Jan. 1 brings a surprisingly social start to your year, Taurus. Your ruling planet, Venus, joined Pluto in Capricorn before entering Aquarius on Jan. 3. Be prepared for deep and important conversations with your close friends or partner, especially if they’re a fellow Earth sign. Listen closely. They likely have wise words for you.

Gemini (May 21–June 21)
Mercury’s retrograde that began late December finally ended on Jan. 18 for you, Gemini. A return to classes and campus life means safe travels and good conversation are on your horizon. Give yourself time to settle down after move-in and practice some much-needed self-care. You should start feeling at your best now that classes have started..

Cancer (June 22–July 22)
A full moon shone in Cancer on the sixth of this month. Open yourself up to your emotions, letting them crash over you. It’s okay to not be okay all the time. Do some journaling and drink lots of water. Let the full moon charge your intentions and empower you to achieve them this month. You can do this. Good luck!

Leo (July 23–Aug. 22)
Saturn moves into your Seventh House this month, Leo. Relationships of all kinds are challenging you, for both good and bad. There’s strength in reflecting on what you bring to others and what they bring to you. Don’t hold onto relationships that aren’t serving you anymore. Open yourself up to new people who may enter your life, and push yourself to serve others.

Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22)
Like Gemini, Mercury’s return to a direct path will bring you some much needed balance in your social life, Virgo. Be careful to not let the positive wave of lunch meet-ups and house parties keep you from taking time to prepare for the semester ahead. Going to class every once in a while is — allegedly — good for your grades. Give yourself a good start this year.

Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 23)
Libra, your ruling planet, Venus, enters your Fifth House bringing you abundant love and good energy this month. Open your eyes to the people around you and their actions. Take time for gratitude and some self-care this month to charge up your year to be one of strong relationships and a strong sense of self. Stop and smell the roses.

Scorpio (Oct. 24–Nov. 21)
These are uncertain times for you, Scorpio. The full moon in Cancer on Jan. 6 entered your Ninth House of Philosophy, nudging you to rethink and overthink your recent goals, relationships and actions. Reflection can be a good thing, but you can’t let it send you spiraling. Mars, one of your ruling planets, ended its retrograde on Jan. 12, bringing you some much-needed solace and peace of mind. Allow yourself to enjoy and take in what’s happening around you. There is no single perfect path to anything in life.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21)
This will be a bit of a whirlwind month for you, Sagittarius. Like everyone else, Mars and Mercury retrogrades have made communication and motivation rocky roads for you so far. Though things got easier when these planets went direct towards the middle of January, the new moon in Aquarius on Jan. 21 will reconnect you with your closest communities and grant you time to spend with loved ones. Expect good news around Jan. 26, when Venus enters Pisces and your Fourth House of Home and Family, bringing some stability to your apartment or finances.

Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19)
Pluto entered Capricorn in your First House of Self on Jan. 1, bringing you all kinds of renewed energy and self-worth to carry you through the start of the year. Treat yourself to the kinds of experiences you deserve. Push outside of your comfort zone. Energy put towards bettering yourself now will stay with you for years to come. This month is a great time to reevaluate the people, goals and habits in your life. Look outward for inspiration and inward for changes you can realistically make. New year, same you — just with a few software updates.
