The next few weeks will be about diplomacy and cooperation for most signs. This is a good time for negotiations, finalizing legal or financial matters, and tending to the home and family. We'd do better to not start anything new until we've cleared up the old. Water and Air will be reflective, but Fire and Earth should also slow down and review their goals. Anything involving details, paperwork, filing or the like should be done to allow a fresh perspective and clean slate. Clear up any confusion surrounding property or investments before signing on the dotted line.
AQUARIUS – Contrary
January 21 – February 18
Your birthday month will see you standing your ground while trying to meet everyone in the middle…confused much? For most signs, this wouldn't make a bit of sense, but Water Bearers are at their best when everything is contrary. You'll be in the thick of a throng of people, and inspiring them with your boundless enthusiasm. Don't be surprised by a new love interest or a former flame cozying up to you. In all of this, be frugal and avoid big purchases or splurges. Whatever latest techno-gadget you've been drooling over can wait until it goes on sale.
You won't feel contrary at Festivals.
PISCES – Wait and See
February 19 – March 20
You're in a wait-and-see period which can bring a lot of clarity if you remain patient. Contemplate any major decisions by allowing your thoughts to focus on your daily tasks while your mind works out bigger issues in the background. A slightly different approach to your career could see you making some dynamic shifts in terms of your role or occupation. Things you've always wanted to explore but weren't brave enough to follow through with should be pursued, albeit slowly. Keep your options and your calendar open for now while you assess.

ARIES – Organize & Prioritize
March 21 – April 20
This month is all about organization. You've probably already started a pre-spring cleaning, but now you need to focus on time management and priorities. Attend to the nitty-gritty details. Reassess your game plan and make sure your strategy has a backup plan just in case. Anything you've dreaded doing should be dealt with ASAP. No more procrastination or excuses! Find ways to reward yourself to help you stay dedicated to the cause. Imagine how much freer you'll feel once you've addressed the anvil tied around your ankles. You can play hooky later.
Go Shopping for your home.
TAURUS – Stop the Melodrama
April 21 – May 20/21
Stop the melodrama! Your latest obsession is causing undue stress. Let go of expectations. Have faith that events will unfold as they should without your meddling. Keep yourself busy and distracted from your whirling thoughts regarding the unknown. While you may have a good idea of how your life should be, it doesn't mean this will manifest just the way you thought it would. Avoid coming across to clingy or co-dependent. Your neediness could send folks running away. Be open to possibilities. This means releasing control. Allow surprises to happen organically.
See drama at Theater.
GEMINI – Sharp
May 21/22 – June 21
You're going to be mentally sharp this month and others will notice your quick-wittedness. This shouldn't come as much of a surprise as the Twins are one of the savvier signs of the zodiac. But the next few weeks can actually showcase your many hidden talents so long as you're confident in your dealings. A job promotion or an unexpected project may fall into your lap. The obstacle to all this is you may prefer to work solo and avoid taking your fair share of credit. Focus on cooperation instead of independence. Create and invent but share the wealth too.
You'll be ready to see a smart Film.
CANCER – Nesting Phase
June 22 – July 22
Local outings to your favorite bistro or café will be more to your liking instead of big ventures. You're in a nesting phase for the next month and should attend to domestic matters now. Close friends and family can be better company than a crowd of strangers so spend time with your cherished ones. Financial concerns could have you feeling slightly pinched and worried. Save rather than spend, especially if you're considering a major investment. A new home is possible, but not recommended until autumn. Get your crabs in a row first before making a rash decision.
Nest down with Books & Readings.
LEO – Quality Time
July 23 – August 22/23
Make time for the ones you care most about this month. You may find yourself frustrated by the demands of another (or others), but you'd do well to be there for someone when it's needed. Be open and generous with what you have. Listen and enjoy quality over quantity. You'll be able to attend to your personal matters too so long as you stick to a schedule. Avoid procrastination and juggle your time well. Any obstacles that arise are actually opportunities in disguise. Learn from your past mistakes and failures instead of wallowing in regret. Laugh and live more fully.
Spend quality time at Restaurants & Cafes.
VIRGO – Decisions
August 23/24 – September 22/23
You have a lot of important decisions to make this year. Give time to mull over what matters most and weigh your current actions carefully. Any impetuous decision now could make situations more difficult down the road. Review your goals and follow through with your excellent attention for details. Examine every angle before forging ahead into unknown territory. If it sounds too good to be true….then triple check the small print. Don't be so impatient or rash. It is better to make a couple of major moves then expend unnecessary energy. Think through firstly.
Make a decision to see Dance.
LIBRA – Don't Overdo It
September 23/24 – October 22/23
A bit of discipline is in order now. Tighten the purse strings and try not to give in to temptation. Your scales have been unbalanced since the holidays, and it would be better for your overall wellness to right them again. Lately, it seems you've been gluttonous, whether your weakness is food, shopping or partying. You can still have a good time, just don't overdo it. Part of this problem could stem from your recent need to say "yes!" to whatever presents itself. This isn't a bad approach, but you need to find time for solitude and deep reflection in order to prosper.
You can't overdo Health & Fitness.
SCORPIO – Pretence
October 23/24 – November 22
Things may not be going quite as planned, which means either quit or punt this month. Your fantasies may have gotten the best of you and now reality is slapping you in the face. This would be a good opportunity to reflect on last year's choices and seek understanding as to your motivations and needs. You're feeling as though what you manifested isn't truly what you wanted and you may have bitten off more than you can chew. Contemplate your next move. It requires a lot of strength and honesty to admit a mistake. Better to fix it then maintain pretence.
Get in touch with your feelings through Art.
SAGITTARIUS – Rest and Relaxation
November 23 – December 21/23
This month is about taking a little R & R before leaping into your next great adventure. You've been juggling a lot of responsibilities the last few months and could use a break. Take this period of calm to address your home and pamper yourself whenever you can. Curl up with a good book or catch up on your Netflix. Be lazy and sleep in. Find your center right now. Tackle early spring cleaning projects a little bit at a time rather than all at once. Clearing out your space will improve your focus in the months ahead. File and throw out anything that isn't useful to you.
Take a day off to visit Museums.
CAPRICORN – What Matters Most
December 22/24 – January 20
You could feel torn between your passions right now. Weigh what matters most and is deserving of your utmost attention against projects that may not yield results for some time. Tackle work with gusto in order to spring ahead through summer. Anything that is pure speculation should be explored only when you have the time and resources to delve into it. Be flexible, however, in the shifts to your otherwise solidly laid out plans. You could be in for surprises but don't try to foresee them in advance. Stick with your routine and be steadfast.
What matters most is Recreation.
