The signs of the zodiac are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.

Pisces season starts within the week! Prepare yourself for emotional sensitivity and greater passion for life. Also, the full moon in Leo on Wednesday may bring us feelings of pride and accomplishment in our work. Life may be tough, and projects may seem hard to complete, but we will all succeed as long as we can keep pushing ourselves.

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

You’re not out of the woods yet. Chaos is simply a part of your life which you’re probably used to, even if you don’t like it. Embrace the chaos for a change instead of resisting it. You may find that it takes you on an unexpected adventure or brings you a newfound sense of joy. It’s OK to not have all the answers to your problems.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Try to be understanding of other people. Often you get wrapped up in your own affairs, likely forgetting that other people have feelings too. Challenge yourself to see things from others’ points of view. This will keep you humble as well as push you to foster greater empathy for your loved ones and colleagues.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

Do you have time to breathe? You’ve purposefully put a lot on your plate without thinking about the toll it might take on your body. It’s an honorable endeavor to try to do everything as much as possible, but you deserve a break! Find the time in your busy schedule to meditate or cook something delicious to help you recharge.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)

Take yourself on a date. If you have been feeling neglected, dear water sign, know that it is not the universe playing a cruel trick on you. Your worth does not stem from your likability, nor even from how people perceive you. Work on your self-esteem and self-love; eventually, you may discover you don’t even desire others’ approval.

Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)

Poetry: Write it, read it, speak it to others. This creative slump you may be feeling needs to be fixed by an equally creative effort. While poetry itself may not suit your artistic inclinations, the pursuit of it could spark an interest in you for something bigger. Nobody understands you better than yourself; only you can pull yourself out of this slump.

Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)

Be conservative with your social time. Not only is COVID-19 a consistent concern we all face, but earth signs like yourself are likely to feel drained by social activities before your air and fire sign friends. You like being around people, and that’s great, but you need to remember to take time for you — nobody else can do that for you.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)

Let Wednesday’s full moon engage you. Lately, something (or someone) has been an inspiration to you. Keep following your impulses when reaching your goals, however lofty the goals may seem. The energy of this full moon is especially suited for those with ambition to feel encouraged in their pursuits of greatness.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)

Go with the flow, water sign. The energy of this week may influence you to randomly cry, or dance, or shout in frustration, and all of the above is encouraged to be expressed. Remember what you’re good at, too, and those skills will help you find the path of least resistance to get through the next seven days. 

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)

Remember to rest. You can’t be a nonstop machine forever, even if you’d like to or are expected to. Self care is the name of the game this week: Stretch, drink water, get adequate sleep and take your meds. No one is capable of functioning 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so don’t expect that of yourself — you’ll just end up disappointed.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)

Weather permitting, a walk in nature would do you good. Like any sign currently, you’re probably incredibly busy and it can be hard to stay calm throughout it all. Somehow immersing yourself in nature may help to ease your troubles. A few planets are still traveling through Capricorn, which may also have a residual effect on you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)

Happy birth season! You have your eyes set on the horizon, either hopeful about or dreading something. Whichever you’re feeling, you’re worth holding out for. Everyone experiences their own highs and lows, and whatever is next for you on such a pendulum is coming for a reason. You have the strength to push through these challenges.

Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)

Happy birth season! Get ready for a celebration of some kind. Regardless of your upcoming birthday, people around you are excited to get to know you and revel in your accomplishments with you. This shouldn’t all go to your head, however — all parties must eventually end. Stay humble and your successes will taste sweeter.
