This week is the beginning of Capricorn season! We may start formulating our New Year’s resolutions now under the influence of this earth sign as we long for structure, progress and peace of mind. Do something to ground yourself this week, such as yoga or making tea.

Aries (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19)

Take a step back. This winter break has done so much good for you so far, but you’re still learning to trust the process. Try to chill out this week as you reap the benefits of your hard work, and then allow yourself to keep pushing on afterward.

Taurus (Apr. 20 to May 20)

Eat some soul food. Lately you’ve been making great progress in your personal endeavors, but this means you deserve to relax even more than before. Some may see you as food-motivated, but in truth, you simply always strive to experience fine dining. Allow yourself that pleasure!

Gemini (May 21 to Jun. 20)

Release your inner chaos. The holidays have you stressed out (understandably), and you might be unsure how to calm down. If you have the means, therapy will do you a world of good. If this is inaccessible to you, try visual art, such as finger painting, as an outlet.

Cancer (Jun. 21 to Jul. 22)

Lean into your natural ability for leadership. You’re one of the four cardinal signs of the zodiac, which means you are a self-starter, trendsetter and an initiative taker. Even if you’re normally shy or quiet, you have the latent power to lead and guide others.

Leo (Jul. 23 to Aug. 22)

Are you feeling tested? Perhaps the best remedy for your struggles is to find a (consenting) shoulder to cry on and let loose your emotions. Giving yourself the space, time and permission to process will often lead you to feeling more confident in finding the best path forward.

Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

Remember to be kind. Sometimes, you can give people the cold shoulder or even shut down when faced with tough decisions. It will serve you to open up to others and practice empathy. If you believe in karma, now is the time to start straightening yours out.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Examine and appreciate your inner beauty. If you care deeply about your appearances, this is a sign to let go of those notions and start looking inward. You have a lot within you to be thankful for; don’t shortchange your own opinion of yourself!

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Learn optimism. You’re likely a realist, but sometimes people can confuse this with pessimism. The ability to flourish might seem out of reach, but by practicing a little gratitude every day, your outlook on life will steadily become cheerier.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

Savor what’s left of winter break. As a fire sign, you may often be swept up in new projects or activities that take up more time than you predicted. Unfortunately, time is relentless. You might as well enjoy as much of your remaining free time as you can.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

Happy birth season! Celebrate your achievements however you please, because you deserve it. You’re naturally a hard worker, but you’re still learning how to play hard and rest hard. Try out new methods of entertainment or relaxation and discover something new about yourself.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

Deepen your breathing. Lately you’ve been working so hard that your breathing has become shallow to cope. This won’t do you any good; breath is life! Dust and vacuum your space as well. You’ll subconsciously give yourself the permission to breathe more fully.

Pisces (Feb. 19 to Mar. 20)

Don’t sit idly. It may be tempting to wait for what you want, as you believe good things happen on their own time. What should become even more tempting for you is the act of reaching your goals. If you truly want a change in your life, take any opportunity to make it happen!
