Happy birthday to every result of a very steamy Valentine’s Day, and sorry for the constant reminder of that fact. I suffer with you.
Aries (Mar. 20- Apr. 18)
This month, you are allowed to seek retribution from whoever has wronged you recently. Anger is hard to hold onto and getting closure on hard chapters will help you let go. This November, the goal is to feel lighter.
Taurus (Apr. 19- May 20)
You will have a November rich in love. Friends, fiends, family, and lovers—you will discover new facets of your appreciation for many people in your life and might develop deeper connections with the people in your life, provided you don’t give in to your destructive tendencies. Be careful, enjoy.
Gemini (May 21- June 20)
It seems some things will catch up to you. Secrets that have haunted you will play a big role in your life this month—but not all will be negative. Satisfaction will be hard to obtain but not impossible. If you are true to yourself and to others, you will get through this time unscathed.
Cancer (June 21- July 22)
November will be the perfect time to take things to the next level, especially in your career. Opportunities will present themselves to be well within your reach. This could be what you have been waiting for to advance in your life, the next step to help you reach your goal.
Leo (July 23- Aug. 22)
It seems change will take up much space in your life. Whether it is meeting new people, trying new activities, sorting out family things, or changing career paths, big things are coming. The best advice for you would be to stay flexible when the unplanned comes.
Virgo (Aug. 23- Sept. 22)
Wrap up in a blanket and do not leave your room. A lot of negative energy will be coming your way, but it has nothing to do with you. Try to remain unaffected and be the happy, unbothered person you are.
Libra (Sept. 23- Oct. 22)
You have been putting too much pressure on yourself. Whatever has been going on does not solely belong to you, and it is not your job to fix everyone and their perception of you. Take the time to heal and feel your feelings—they are valid, too.
Scorpio (Oct. 23- Nov. 21)
Things may be tense right now but try to fight that natural reaction that tells you to build up that diamond wall around your heart. They mean well, and pushing people away is not always the only answer—nor the healthiest. In November, try to communicate.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22- Dec. 21)
The best place to be is in the present. Sagittarius, take a deep breath: overthinking about how you got here and how you will get there is not helping so much. Be thankful for the place you have in the world and let life take you where it will.
Capricorn (Dec. 22- Jan. 19)
You are allowed to find comfort in strange things. Perhaps you like ketchup in mac’n’cheese. Perhaps you like screeching into the cold dark at midnight. Perhaps you like watching mice getting preyed on by snakes. The point is you should not let people’s judgement defer you from what you enjoy—be you.
Aquarius (Jan. 20- Feb. 18)
You might be distracted this month. People will leave, people will come, school will take on a big place in your life, and family will do nothing but toy with your emotions, good or bad. It might feel like nothing has your full attention, and that’s okay. You are allowed to stay numb until it clears up.
Pisces (Feb. 19- Mar. 19)
Do you feel like everything is stuck in place? Are you bored? Did you wonder what death tastes like 130 times this week? Then it might be time to make a radical decision. If you’ve been thinking of making a big change to your life, this is a sign to do it. Change countries, change your name, change whatever you need to feel fresh again.
