Hello, you fly Hunter Hawks! 2019 has officially ended, and with it, the core-shaking stress from our latest batch of finals. Excelsior! The beginning of 2020 offers new opportunities and adventures! Now is the time to get started on those New Year’s resolutions that will likely only last through January… but let that never discourage us! These horoscope forecasts should help everyone plan ahead so we can make the most of January and get energized for 2020!
Welcome to your season, Capricorn! It’s about to get REAL. You’ve got all the power and potential in the cosmos, so whatever you desire is literally yours for the taking. You just have to go for it. Since this is technically your party, no one’s going to blame you if you get a little #savage. So, when it comes to getting what you want out of life, be relentless and don’t take no for an answer. However, do be advised that your relationships are a different story, and will still require delicacy (and potential compromise).
Final thoughts: Don’t plan for too many wild nights out, because you probably won’t feel like following through. Your brain is too busy buzzing with thoughts of the next phase in your life, so allow yourself this time to meditate on you.
Aquarius, you’re energized and ready to begin anew! You may have some idea of what you need to do to achieve your goals, but if not, just meditate on this during the full moon (the tenth of January) and it will come to you! You’re right where you need to be in life, so don’t give up! Keep putting in the effort, and let go of the fear of failure from past disappointments. You’ll end the month on a confident note, so hopefully that means that you’ve got the job or score on the exam that you wanted!
Final thoughts: Pay attention to the signs you’re shown this month, and never neglect your inner voice! It knows best.
While your sign may be that of the fish, this month you’re a social butterfly! January is all about making new connections for you, Pisces. Keep your eyes peeled for people who can potentially help you get ahead in your career (or life in general). Next time you’re in line at the coffee shop, don’t retreat into your phone — look around and make a new friend! Don’t underestimate the power of positive conversation! We all need a #supportsquad!
Final thoughts: Don’t forget to take time to nourish your sensitive soul amongst all the new energies that could surround you this month. Do the rituals you need to do to keep yourself sane and pay no mind to negative vibes.
If you’ve got your sights set on something, Aries, then that means that you’ve already got it in the bag. This month, it’s OK to bask in the glow of unbridled confidence, because whether you have a competitive test, application, or interview, success will be yours! There’s no need to overwork yourself, though. Just focus, be yourself, and watch all doors open before you!
Final thoughts: There’s no need to neglect your relationships while you’re busy being a #boss! In the words of Lizzo,“You can have it all, no sacrifice.”
This month, Taurus, you’re all about discovery. This could be a journey within yourself, or a more physical adventure. Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and explore! Whether it’s a new class or a new method to something you’ve done a thousand times, try it! And if you’ve been thinking about traveling, a semester abroad couldn’t hurt, right? Well, it’s up to you to find out!
Final thoughts: Remain mindful! New opportunities await, but don’t rush into them. Think about your plan. In other words, look before you leap, but definitely still leap!
Gemini, you’re always so well-informed on everything that surrounds you, but now it’s time to focus on that which lies within. Energies around you will be intense, but tune into your inner voice to uncover what you truly want and need. Now is your time to regain agency in any areas of your life where you may have felt a lack thereof. Big changes are coming, but trust that your gut knows what’s best for you, and let no one else be the master of your destiny.
Final thoughts: If you’re weathering a storm, just know that you’ll eventually be met with clear skies and still waters! On you sail, diligently, toward success!
Cancer, things have been a bit off this past semester, haven’t they? This is most likely due to an imbalance you’re having in your relationships — whether it be the relationship you have with yourself, or with someone else. Your goal this month should be to focus on realigning your vibrations so you can get back to studying in peace. Just remember to be gentle with yourself and kind to others during this realignment process!
Final thoughts: You know who you truly want to hang out with and what you want to do with regard to your own aspirations, so just be honest!
Do you have any bad patterns you wish you could kick, Leo? Well, now would be the perfect time! Right before the start of the Spring semester, your determination is strengthened, and you’ll be super successful in sticking to your resolve. Beyond that, you might have a revelation about what you need to do to succeed in your academic or professional career. Inspiration can come from anywhere, so be spontaneous and optimistic!
Final thoughts: If you encounter someone who doesn’t see eye-to-eye with your changes, let them know what’s up, but take care not to be too catty. In that same vein, if you’re being criticized too harshly, stand your ground and let them hear you roar!
The prosperity and peace of mind that has escaped you for so long will be within your grasp this year, but only if you get yourself together, Virgo! Meditation now, actualization later! You’ve got to align your conscious mind with your innermost desires if you want to succeed. Figure out what you need to do to bring forth your best life, and make your preparations! Get those applications in, make your lists, and organize your goals on a vision board! It’s time to commit yourself to your future success, so don’t lose focus!
Final thoughts: Certain people may present themselves as distractions, but remember: if they’re really worth your time, they’ll respect your grind!
Libra, have you finished all your applications and picked out your classes yet? Get on it! Now is the time to sow the seeds of success for your future! Focus less on how your friends and family are doing, and more on yourself. Do the things that you know you want to do, and try not to get caught up with opposing opinions. If you feel it’s the right move for your life, that’s what matters most!
Final thoughts: Whatever you do, don’t get bogged down with people who are on lower vibrations. Dump the baggage and continue doing you!
Scorpio, your motto for this month should be “just do it,” because that’s exactly what you’re going to be doing. Whatever it is, you will be stubbornly determined to Get. It. Done. This is a great time to start on any work or projects you’ve felt uninspired to complete in the last year. With your strengthened sense of responsibility, you’ll want to do the work now, so later you can revel in the abundance of the fruits of your labor.
Final thoughts: Push yourself to go after the things you want. You have a great opportunity to accomplish heaps, but only if you get started!
Sagittarius, if this last semester really did a number on you and your health has deteriorated, then this is your month of healing. You’ll be feeling better in no time, and will soon regain your fervor for life. You will have the strength to actively work towards increasing your zeal and determination during your healing process. Don’t neglect your responsibilities, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed, do your best to reach for balance!
Final thoughts: Focus on regaining your sense of personal or financial security so you can later have the confidence to actualize your goals!
