Nov 22 – Dec 21
You may think you give good advice but is anyone listening? Your words may not inspire as well as they used to, so be ready to walk the talk to prove that realistic optimism is key. Taking a break from a relationship might be a good move, but only if it’s for the right reasons.

Dec 22 – Jan 19
Everything is (mostly) going according to your master plan. But don’t sit back and watch it all unfold as it should; people are watching you, and they have high expectations. Your social life is low priority and that suits you fine for now. A tiff with a friend may tie you in knots—give it as much healing time as it needs.

Jan 20 – Feb 18
Getting away with your guy for a long weekend will be just the thing to put your bodies in sync. You need a break from the mixed bag at work anyway, where some projects take off and others fall flat. Sending out resumés? Make sure you’re motivated by more than impatience. 

Feb 19 – Mar 20
If three planets zipping through your wellness sector don’t help you get back on track, nothing will. Time to take your workout to the next level or realize less is s’more with the comfort food. Is it time to cast your relationship in stone—or get a new mould? Take your time, and you can craft this one more to your liking. 

Mar 21 – Apr 19
Before you invest in both the thigh-high boots and Prada jacket, think twice. Unexpected expenses could knock you off your financial footing if you’re not prepared—best keep one foot on the ground. Loose lips could sink your relationship, but only if you’re not careful.

Apr 20 – May 20
Venus turns retrograde on you—meaning personal plans (and possibly your main relationship) stall in the gate through no fault of your own. It’s just a testing phase and at least your friends offer diversion. There’s no reason not to charge ahead with a work project or two. You’re quietly building goodwill and status, which will pay off.

May 21 – Jun 20
Mars hits the accelerator on the work front. Fortunately, you thrive when doing nine things at once, and this time you’re organized. Life in the fast lane means some people you pass may resent it. Hit the rest stop at some point because your love and creativity sectors are alight. Write poems, invest in a new wardrobe, fall head over Jimmy Choos with someone new.

Jun 21 – Jul 22
He’s so hot to trot as the month begins, it’s hard to keep up. But don’t be surprised if he digs in his heels soon. With Venus in reverse, everyone is rethinking relationships and it’s best to delay any commitments. What does get the go-ahead? That lust for a home to call your own.

Jul 23 – Aug 22
A new moon in your communication sector helps you make your point with flair. Use it to finesse your private agenda at work, text your way to that new guy’s heart or find a new way of talking to the old one. The downside of telling it like it is: you’re bound to ruffle some feathers, especially with your family. Rehashing the past may not be much fun, but it’s necessary now.

Aug 23 – Sep 22
You’re sitting pretty, at least financially. Don’t just lounge on your laurels; get your assets in high gear and set yourself up for the future. If you’re looking to upgrade your career, this is an optimal time for the hunt—not that your packed schedule provides much leeway, however. Still, you can always find time for everything plus a little romance by multitasking.

Sep 23 – Oct 22
A new moon casts you in a new light. Since this cycle involves Saturn, expect everything to be less Gossip Girl-like and more reality series. If you can embrace more serious roles, you can have the goals of your dreams. For now, set your strategy and don’t forget to pay all your bills on time. Focus on the big picture and invest in a killer fall wardrobe.

Oct 23 – Nov 21
Venus backpedalling in your sign creates a lull in your relationships—public and private. The big lesson: the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Forgive minor trespasses and don’t be so quick to chop your “Friends” list. Your sixth sense is exponentially keen this month, which helps put you in the right place at the right time.
