Use the horoscopes for your Sun and Rising sign below to help get you stay focused survive all the madness.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Welcome to your season, Scorpio! The fall is your domain, and this year Jupiter’s presence in your sign just deepens your potential for long-term success. When it comes to Jupiter, abundance is almost always guaranteed but it is up to you to be prepared for it. When you gain access to the spotlight, everything is up for examination. Make peace with all the parts of yourself that are still growing and healing and drop the idea that you have to be perfect to put yourself out there. Take note as to what is taking off in your life and what has been dragging you down. Gaining insight into what is working and what feels forced will give you the information needed to make the most of Jupiter’s juice.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Your ruling planet has finally sunk into Scorpio and invites you to take a closer look at your psyche. Facing your fear is not about ignoring it. The process of owning up may be messy but you have to learn to embrace the process and push through. Dig a little deeper into what has been holding you back from making major changes and explore what makes you uncomfortable about your own success. There is a new side of you waiting to emerge but right now it may feel like pawing through the darkness. Trust the process and promise yourself you won’t abandon your own growth. Own the truths that reveal themselves. Your work can wait and I promise it will be much deeper once you make it through.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
It is time to bring the fire, Capricorn. This month supports your commitment to changing the world around you through the unique gifts that only you have. Most everything has been done before; but not by you. Let yourself live in the power that you put into your work and bring people onto your team who do the same. Making connections and staying clear and focused on what it is that your bring to the table is key. Jupiter’s movement into Scorpio emphasizes your need to create a web of connections that stabilize the fabric of your enterprise. Get present with the qualities you have and search for, encourage and partner with those that possess the ones you lack.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb.18)
This month undeniably contains magic for you, Aquarius. Jupiter is now illuminating your sector of social standing and career capability and your ruling planets take this month on hand-in-hand. Use all of this energy to boost your foundation and stabilize the systems you use to execute even the smallest of tasks. Your brain works like a well-oiled machine and it is time for your process to as well. Use this month to test out innovative ways to maximize your efficiency and work out all of the kinks that come with the territory of being a creative. With so much energy at your disposal, it is important to know exactly where you want it to flow and to figure out how to have the most authority in guiding it there. The devil is in the details.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Energy is freely flowing for you this month. All the planets in your sibling sign, Scorpio light up your world of travel and philosophy. If you have been teaching, it is time to get back to the study and practice, if you have been studying it is time for your to step up and teach. You are a wealth of emotional and earthly intelligence, Pisces. Don’t keep all of your great ideas and understandings to yourself. This month, find ways to express what this life has taught you so far and be open to new avenues of further growth and learning. Jupiter is pushing your expansion into the outer world. Take what living in your inner world has taught you and let it enrich and guide a new journey.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This month kicks off with the moon in your sign and encourages you to get right with your feelings and friendships before diving into what’s next. Take the first few days to check-in with your internal workings and get into alignment with what your heart needs. This month is cloaked in some intense energy that may leave your world radically different when it’s all over. Make sure you have a say in what those changes are by getting crystal clear on what you want and don’t want and communicating accordingly with those around you. The electricity of this month can provide a boost in stamina and drive. This can be great for finishing all your projects, especially mid-month, but it is all about staying present and persistent.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This month is all about resolution and trust, Taurus. Planets in Scorpio light up your relational world and can make it feel heavy and hectic. Gain perspective and grounding through it all by trusting yourself. Slowness only becomes stagnant when it is motivated by a lack of understanding and forethought. It is time to revisit your judgement and values and figure out where you are coming from before you draw any lines in the sand. Relationships are relationships because they involve more than just you. Clue your partners in on what is going on with you and be as honest with them as you are with yourself. Resolution will only come from you owning your fear and downfall and making space for your partners to hold you through it all.
Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Early on this month you may feel disillusioned by your work life. Whether the work is temporary or your place of passion, work is work and sometimes you just have to do it. Your ruling planet, Mercury, is in Sagittarius and can become restless and idealistic there. Try not to get wrapped up in fantasies or become so jaded that you lose sight of what part of the path you’re on. You are always working towards something, Gemini. If you feel like you’re spinning you wheels it may be time to refocus but don’t abandon the projects you’ve committed to for a moment of lost hope. Once you put your current plight into larger perspective, you will be able to regain your footing and use the energy that is being offered to you to soar.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
The attention of this month is focused on the quality of your connections. Jupiter has entered your fifth house and is encouraging you to commit to yourself and what compels you.Your passion has always been most present when you feel nurtured and protected. Use this month to reconnect with the people, places and things that make you feel less alone. Be careful not to decide for anyone but yourself what people can and cannot do. Ask the people around you to show up in the ways you need and then decide what to do if they cannot meet your requests once you have given them the chance to appease you. You deserve to be happy, Cancer. Find out what and who provide that feeling and then invest.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Welcome to your nesting season, Leo. As planets pack your house of home and family, you are given much deserved time to rest and plot your next moves. This is a great time to rearrange your home and the life you live out of it, accordingly. The Full Moon on the third is your opportunity to see what your work plate has become full with and what you may need to re-frame, trim or change according to what is no longer working. Any time spent with family or friends can be nourishing and offer your further guidance into what decisions need to be made. Your only task this month is to be unabashedly you and to prioritize and refresh the relationships and spaces that encourage you to do so.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
It may be time to have some uncomfortable conversations, Virgo. You are now fresh into a new solar year and your life and relationships must reflect where you want to go with it. There is no time to get caught up on difference of opinion, but the quality of your connections and your ability to be honest is of the utmost importance. Find the best way to stand your ground while maintaining flexibility and perspective, this month. Write down or recite your intentions with all of the connections you have and stick to conversations, collaborations and time spent accordingly. Your time and energy are precious and you deserve to give them to yourself first. Don’t be afraid to set boundaries that reflect that.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Mars remains in your corner for the remainder of this month and provides lots of dynamic energy. Your year is just getting started and martian energy can be an incredible boost to get started on the projects you set out to complete. Don’t be afraid to be selfish with your energy or to dream big but also make sure to keep a strong sense of time. Make goals that are measured and meant to last and make your plans for completing them accordingly. Make time for all that is important to you and stay rooted and present in the impact of all your endeavors. As long as what you do is aligned with how you feel and what you think, success will always follow.
