ARIES (March 21 – April 19) Reserve your next Throwback Thursday for your BFF, Aries! The new moon in Aquarius on Jan. 20 has you ready to mingle. If you happen to be single, this could finally be the time to give love a chance. If you’re coupled up, it’s likely that you’ll find the Amy Poehler to your Tina Fey.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) Get ready to dot your I’s and cross your T’s, Taurus! An offer on Jan. 22 is looking real good. Remember that ice cream-taster job that turned you down a few months back? Well thanks to Mercury going retrograde, they want you back and bad. You have the upper hand now with whatever offer manifests as a blast from your past.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) Are you stuck in quicksand, Gemini? Everything’s going real slow right about now—and who can you thank for that? Mercury, your ruling planet, goes retrograde on Jan. 21 and with it brings a hellstorm of miscommunication. You know the drill: expect surprises from your past, don’t sign any papers and try not to drop your cellphone in the toilet.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22) Love is in the air and on the interwebs, Cancer! You can’t seem to quit swiping right—you’re consumed by all-things love and lust at the moment. While you might think you have online dating down to a science, be careful what you send out to some of your favored suitors. A mass selfie might find itself with a pair of mutual (soon-to-be angry) friends.
LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22) Don’t leave your credit cards laying around, Leo! Your carefree demeanor might get the best of you on Jan. 19. It might be time to quit using your pockets and to start using a wallet. Identity theft is around the corner, and that unsuspecting 80-year-old grandma visiting from Florida couldn’t be happier with your lack of organization when she picks your pocket!
VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Wondering if you’ll be the next case of measles, Virgo? Health will be the question with the arrival of the new moon in Aquarius. If you’ve had an ongoing, long-term health issue that doesn’t seem to beat it even with a few overdoses of Airborne, it’s time to get yourself checked out. The problem might be something larger than you originally imagined. Do yourself a favor.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) You don’t know until you try, Libra! Try to make a baby that is! The new moon, in fellow soul sign Aquarius, is here to help make big changes—like making children. If you’re committed to you for the rest of your life and not interested in a little one, this new moon could be emphasizing a new baby in another sector of your life—like a creative passion project.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Put the Fitbit down, Scorpio! While working out is always a great thing, we just can’t condone another gadget at this time. Especially with Mercury going retrograde on Jan. 21. Keep water away from electronics and take out all of the Apple insurance you can—things are about to get real messy for your tech-savvy appliances.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) Planning on taking a walk down Memory Lane, Sagittarius? We’re not talking past loves here—we’re talking an actual walk. You might find your inner adventurer seeking a familiar thrill—the thrill of one of your favorite locales. Brainstorm about some of your favorite places growing up and pay a visit—it might be the perfect place for a little reflection and reinvention.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) It never hurts to ask if you do it politely, Capricorn. Especially when the question, er, in question, could be solely responsible for you upgrading from Two Buck Chuck to a Robert Mondavi cabernet. It’s time for a raise and don’t be afraid to ask on Jan. 20—the stars want to see a little extra cash in your wallet!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Got a plan, Aquarius? Well, the new moon has a plan for you! Any lingering thoughts that have been clouded with what-ifs are about to take flight. Put some stock in your wildest dreams. Consider Jan. 21 your very own personal day to channel your inner Wolf of Wall Street moment—minus the felonies, house arrest and crumbling family life.
PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20) Feeling more courageous than Popeye after devouring some spinach, Pisces? Well Mars entered your sign and will find itself getting settled there this week. On Jan. 16 you’ll be full to the brim with courage and ready to voice your deepest thoughts and concerns. Use your innate intuition and follow your gut—you know what you need!
