The energy might feel off lately. This is common when three or more planets are in one sign simultaneously. Mercury, Venus and Mars are in Capricorn currently, which can create feelings of sluggishness or guilt over not being “productive enough.” Fear not, though! Later this month, this planetary dynamic will begin to shift right when we need it.

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

The world feels slow-moving right now. You may feel pressured to expedite certain processes. If you’re truly concerned about deadlines or lack of time for a group project, consider doing it yourself. Often people will fail to meet your expectations, leaving you to do the grunt work. It’s unfortunate, but it’s life.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Keep in touch with your friends. Life is not just about work and school. Granted, everyone can find it hard sometimes to balance such important aspects of life, and there is no one-size-fits-all formula to perfect this balance. Don’t be completely discouraged from trying to stay social and engaged with loved ones.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Your luck is about to change. Whether you believe it will be so or not, this change is coming. This doesn’t mean it will necessarily come easily, as nothing can be accomplished without effort. However, the tides will turn in your favor soon enough, which can only be strengthened by your own trust in the process.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Do you have writer’s block? Perhaps you have lost motivation or feel stuck somehow in old patterns. This is nothing to be afraid of or concerned about; everyone loses inspiration once in a while. If you can, go outside and appreciate nature. It may be just what you need to pull you out of any possible slump. 

Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)

Push your limits. You can do so much more than you believe is possible. Once you are able to build momentum, your projects and duties take on lives of their own, and everyone must step back in awe at how effortless you make it seem. Continue on this journey of fantastical achievement. The end goal is in reach.

Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

You greatly influence others. This might make you afraid of responsibility, fearing looking like a  failure in front of your peers. Learn to fail proudly and pick up your mess humbly. It may surprise you just how much of an inspiration such an act can be to your onlookers. In turn, you may discover that people respect you even more for your bravery.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Communication is key. Lately, you have been quiet; perhaps you’re biding your time, or maybe you simply don’t feel like talking. Remember that your voice matters and that it’s OK to initiate conversation. In fact, doing so will be beneficial for you in whatever projects or activities you have in these upcoming weeks.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Shun a bad habit. Everyone has their vices, and you are no exception. Don’t be ashamed of it, but do try and form healthier habits for yourself. You will find that life is suddenly a little more manageable than before, and you may even feel more energized to complete the more mundane chores of life, which is always a plus.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

Keep on trucking along. As a fire sign, having three planets in an earth sign can be especially hard on you, as you feel pressured to do more than you can handle; yet, the world can only move at one speed. Lately, it’s been hard to take a meaningful and restful break. Know that your well-deserved break is on its way.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

You have accomplished so much recently! It can be a challenge to consistently prove others your worth, yet you take it in stride as if it were nothing. Eat a delicious snack or two this week. In general, indulge in your senses more. You’ll find that life is more pleasurable when you take the time to engage in such simplicities.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

Happy birth season! Remember to keep up self-care routines whenever you can squeeze them in. This can seem impossible at times, especially when everyone expects something different from you. By focusing on yourself, you’ll likely be reminded of what you find most important in life. Your loved ones are there to support you!

Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)

Are you procrastinating? If you are, that’s OK. Almost everyone, especially college students, has been there. It may be that you’re procrastinating due to anxiety or depression. You have so much potential that will remain dormant until you decide to act upon your desires. Don’t run from your problems; instead, do your best to learn from them.
