Aquarius: January 20 – February 18
Happy Birthday, Aquarius! This month, Mars is oriented toward your sun, meaning you should pay close attention to your friends. Play a positive role in their lives by tagging them in relatable Facebook memes and sticking by their side. One day, they’ll return the favour, and you’ll be glad you were there for them all along.
Pisces: February 19 – March 20
This month, your ambition in pursuing a heavy course load and many extracurriculars may become overwhelming, Pisces. Take time to prioritize your activities—including self-care—and you will succeed in all areas of life.
Aries: March 21 – April 19
Aries, lately you’ve become bored with the status quo. Luckily, the lunar eclipse that occurred on Jan. 31 will give you the opportunity to change things up this month. Try out a new club or activity with your friends. But keep an eye out for Cupid, because around Feb. 6 or 7, you may find a love interest in an unexpected place like a samosa sale in McConnell Engineering, or during a drunken encounter at Cafe Campus.
Taurus: April 20 – May 20
The recent lunar moon will create conflict in your place of residence, Taurus. You and your roommate will be at odds about something in the household, whether it is their lack of understanding that dirty dishes do not clean themselves or their inability to respect your sleeping schedule. Try your best not to get too frustrated—you two will figure things out soon, possibly on the solar eclipse of Feb. 15.
Gemini: May 21 to June 20
Gemini, instead of spending all your time getting trashed on St-Laurent—as social Geminis tend to be inclined to do—spend the week of Feb. 10 applying for job and internship opportunities for this summer, as Leo signals that this will be crucial for your future. If you’re having difficulty with a course, now is the perfect time to go to office hours and talk to your professor about how you can improve—you’ll thank yourself later.
Cancer: June 21 to July 22
If you failed to start your New Year’s resolutions last month, don’t worry: January was just a free trial. This month, you will feel optimistic—a trait skeptics like you, Cancer, rarely display. Take advantage of your excitement to explore the city, try out a new winter sport like Snowga, or attend that house party you’ve been itching to go to.
Leo: July 23 – August 22
This is going to be the most romantic month of 2018 for you, Leo. If you’re in a relationship, you will be taking things to a new level this month. If you’re single, you may fall hard for an ex—whether this rekindling occurs through a late-night text or an accidental bump-in at Leacock, however, remains to be seen.
Virgo: August 23 – September 22
This month, you should focus on a hobby that makes you happy, such as playing guitar or coding. If you’re experiencing the infamous “quarter-life” crisis, Virgo, this month you will find a sense of purpose for all that you are currently doing. You’ll become more motivated in your hobbies (and classes) than ever.
Libra: September 23 – October 22
The lunar eclipse means that you will make new acquaintances and friends at any social event you may attend. No matter how awkward, all those faculty wine and cheeses or meetings for new clubs you’re trying out will be worth going to. Don’t get too distracted by these new friends though, Libra—you still need to study for midterms!
Scorpio: October 23 – November 21
As midterms approach, your stars are joined by Venus and Mercury, meaning that while it’s best to focus on studying, you’ll find extra value in taking a break this month. Make sure to call up that special someone, be it a friend or a romantic interest, for a relaxing day spent watching Netflix and eating rocky road ice cream.
Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
First and foremost, make sure to follow your instincts this month, Sagittarius. The stars are in alignment, meaning that many new opportunities are coming your way. Make sure not to overcommit, as you will regret this in the future and end up burning out in McLennan and re-evaluating your life choices.
Capricorn: December 22 to January 19
Get ready to be intimate this month, Capricorn. Venus and Pisces are in harmony on Feb. 10, which means that if you’re single and ready to mingle, you and one of your close friends will finally move your relationship to the next level. But if you’re cuffed, beware of the solar eclipse in Aquarius on Feb. 15, which suggests that you, your significant other, and your friends may clash in some way.
