1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
This month has brought about the collapse of certain ideas and values you held for many year; not just pertaining to yourself but the world at large. You’ve been disenchanted by what you previously placed a great deal of faith in, the results of which have been both humbling and transformative. The process may not be over yet, but this month will find you stepping into new and empowering revelations.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
You have had to learn the hard way that you can shower someone with all the affection and fulfilled needs in the world and still come up short. Time and again your efforts have been wasted on the careless and selfish, and this month may just be the final straw. While you worked hard in 2020 to balance your Taurean stubbornness with necessary compromise, the first month of 2021 will find you reestablishing boundaries that were previously breached.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Harsh words and harmful acts don’t exactly roll of your back, Gemini, but of all the astrological signs you’re the least likely to take anything too permanently to heart. You’ve made considerable life changes in the past year and endured more than your fair share of criticism; this month will see you proving all the naysayers wrong and finally finding your hard-earned peace.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
As a water sign and ruled by the moon to-boot, it’s almost impossible *not* to feel things more intensely than your companion air, earth, and fire signs. Water signs are natural empaths, not only weathering their own heady emotions but frequently feeling the effects of others’. Take care to protect your heart and mental health this month, Cancer, as emotional demands may run high from the people in your life.
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Your pride is often your undoing, Leo, and the past few years have been a mix of unimaginable highs and devastating lows. The good news is the lion is never kept down for long, and you’re already rediscovering your roar–and unsheathing your claws. Just be careful this month when going up against your opponents, as you may end up making enemies out of allies
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
As the sun enters your house of work and routine, you have the good fortune to be able to distract yourself from personal conflict. While you should absolutely take advantage of this welcome reprieve, don’t be fooled: distractions are just that, and are almost never permanent. You may wish you had as much control over your relationships as you do your work ethic, Virgo, but human hearts don’t work that way.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
With the Sun in Aquarius you feel emboldened to speak your mind at last–to hell with those who don’t like it. For too long you’ve had to juggle the unrealistic demands of others, and no one could blame you for redirecting that energy towards your own wellbeing for a change. The only word of caution this month: use some of that newfound empowerment to inspire others to stand up for themselves too.
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Like your fellow water signs Cancer and Pisces, you hate the idea of hurting another soul, intentionally or otherwise. And yet you have, Scorpio. What’s more, given your considerable intuitive gifts, you probably already know this. Perhaps you overstepped the boundaries of another, or allowed jealousy and maliciousness to overshadow your better behavior. This month will determine the severity of the damage, so take care to make amends before it’s too late.
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
It’s rare for the gregarious archer to be felled for long by another’s cruelty, as Sagittarians have some of the thickest skin in the zodiac. “Live and let live” could very well be your motto, but this month will find you faltering when it comes to your actions regarding another. You would never intentionally hurt someone, and it’s likely there was a mix-up in communication somewhere, which isn’t unusual for your multi-tasking sign. Take this month to reach out and correct a perfectly fixable situation.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
The full moon on the 28th will bring you back into the spotlight, along with the usual reactions ranging from ecstatic to discouraging. You probably don’t need to be told not to give too much credence to outside input, as your sign is as steadfast as it is stubborn. In the end, you know yourself better than anyone else so stay focused, Capricorn, and don’t let the naysaying of others deter you.
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You’ve undergone significant changes in the past year, Aquarius, including the way you express yourself to the world. This has brought about a number of welcome changes in the dichotomy of your relationships, as you’ve come to realize that smarts and sensitivity need not be mutually exclusive. This month keep sharing your knowledge and clarifying your points while continuing to show more consideration for the perspectives of others.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces has weathered many an astrological storm, being the oldest and most psychic of the signs. You instinctively understand people before they even open their mouths, but that doesn’t mean you’ve been responding with your usual patience and goodwill. In fact, you’ve found yourself considerably short on both of late. This month you would do well to lay low and keep the peace, however much you’d like to blow up.
