We’re all going to be undergoing a lot of changes this month—but you probably didn’t need a psychic to tell you that.

While you’re settling in to your next phase of life as the school year begins, remember to concentrate on your pre-existing goals. Study, go to class, and then worry about your planetary placements. Jupiter’s in Libra, after all.

Using sun placement relative to Kingston and birthdates, here’s what this upcoming month may have in store for you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

As always, you’re so ready to jump to the next thing that you’re buzzing with energy.

Wind down a little, plan out your schedule before there’s total chaos, and put sleep on the agenda. The friend that keeps appearing in your dreams needs you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You probably won’t be happy to hear this, but it’s going to be a quiet month for you.

Take advantage of the peace—watch a documentary, or maybe indulge in those recommended class readings. Internal reflection is what you need to blossom, which will help you with the intense romance that’s on your horizon.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

Pay attention to your words this month. While you’re universally adored, you also have a habit of hurting people’s feelings unintentionally. Don’t get into any arguments with loved ones and take some much, much needed time to relax.

On the positive side, some financial luck will let you splurge.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Your clear goals for the future and unique way of thinking provide the solutions your community needs. Don’t let a bad mood or some petty drama obstruct your path—give yourself structure. Your emotions will be all over the place, but fate is on your side.

LEO (July 23-August 22)

Everything is up in the air, but don’t let the lack of direction stress you out. In fact, it’s a great time to drop your meticulous life plans and get out of town for a weekend. Bring a friend—you have to talk things out sooner or later.

VIRGO (August 23-September 22)

Your honesty is something to be admired, but remember that you’re not always right.

You can’t organize other people’s lives for them, and anyway, it’s time for you to be the center of attention. Put on your favourite fall clothes and get excited for your upcoming academic success.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22)

If you allow yourself the breathing room, this month could be the start of a grand spiritual journey. People will always judge no matter what you do, so adopt a more self-indulgent attitude. Experiment with exercise, meditation and journaling.

But beware of procrastination: it’ll be your downfall.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 22)

You don’t deal with things emotionally, so this completely irrational creative block is driving you crazy. Stop focusing on the one thing going wrong and appreciate everything going right. Re-engage with your social life—there’s more than one person who’s been waiting for your text.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23-December 20)

Instead of putting distance between you and the person on your mind, try talking to them face-to-face. Take that step or live with the ambiguity forever. It’s difficult putting your personal thoughts into words, but it’ll be less complicated than it seems.

CAPRICORN (December 21-January 19)

Though you deeply care for people close to you, don’t let their expectations weigh you down. You’re good at hiding when you’re upset, but silence isn’t a permanent solution—make the necessary changes before you explode. You don’t need a destination to get on the road.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 19)

Throw away your doubts about self-worth: you’re not just book-smart; you’re people-smart. That’s why friends always surround you. You could go wherever you want in life through sheer willpower. As soon as you accept that perfection is an impossible goal, you’ll snap back to full confidence.

PISCES (February 20-March 20)

If you encounter any problem, no matter how big, you can handle it. You’re in full fighting form this September. But don’t get too comfortable in your new surroundings. Stability is still a long way off, and that can’t be resolved with brute force. Stay resolute on the path you’ve set for yourself.
