A wheel of astrological signs.

It’s Libra Season, which makes it the perfect time to work on finding balance in your life and establishing routine.

Now that you’ve more or less got a grasp on your classes, social life, and goals for the coming year, focus on the little details of your daily life. Tending to small, reoccurring things helps keep your stress levels down. 

With that in mind, using sun placement relative to Kingston and birthdates, here’s what this upcoming month may have store in you.

ARIES (Mar. 21—Apr. 19)

Don’t let the emotional wave of this month carry you away. 

You tend to respond to both positive and negative events in extremes, and there’s going to be a heavy mix of these—especially in the workplace. Focus on bringing beauty and warmth to the people you love.

TAURUS (Apr. 20—May 20)

When friends approach you for advice this month, admit when you don’t know something. Those who feel wronged by you can easily turn into enemies. 

Listen when others speak, especially romantic partners. There’s passion in you, but you must understand others to be understood yourself. 

GEMINI (May 21—June 21)

You can finally reap the rewards of all your hard work. This is an exciting time for new relationships, open and easy communication, and domestic harmony. You’ll also find financial opportunity. 

Just be weary of keeping secrets and say what’s on your mind—let your positivity flow.

CANCER (June 22—July 22)

If you’ve been feeling unsatisfied, look at the quality of your relationships. Accept the advice of your friends—they want you to be happy again. This month is also a very bad time to have a casual fling. It will only result in confusion and hurt feelings.

LEO (July 23—Aug. 22)

Relationships have been a bit strained lately because of a dip in confidence, especially with body image. This month is a time for rebirth. Look at the person you love instead of the mirror. They know how beautiful you are.

VIRGO (Aug. 23—Sept. 22)

Locate the source of your cluttered mind: Is the small issue you’re sweating over really why you feel so uncomfortable? 

Meditate and appreciate all the good things. You’re doing a great job handling all your responsibilities, but be conscious of the impression you make on others.

LIBRA (Sept. 23—Oct. 22)

Outwardly, you’re a dictionary’s definition of achievement. On the inside, you’re still pining for a happily ever after. Romance has no chance to bloom if your ideals block out the sun.

Balance out your expectations with realism and go on a small adventure to bring magic back into your life.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23—Nov. 22)

There will be a point of overwhelming adversity this month. Unfortunately, life can sometimes be cruel, but you have tremendous power to overcome.

Seek the advice and support of a trusted mentor. They will help you sort out your thoughts and lead you to solutions. Rest assured, fires can be extinguished.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23—Dec. 20)

Venus in Libra is going to do wonders for your love life this fall.

While romance has been too intense for you in the past, your newest endeavour is much lighter and more fun. But act wisely—you’ll be the decision-maker for where it goes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21—Jan. 19)

Since you’ve been so mindful with your spending lately, you’re going to have a lot of material opportunities coming up.  

Don’t be afraid to let your ambitious nature lead you to the next goalpost. Determine who in your workspace is reliable and network accordingly.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20—Feb. 19)

Venus in Libra has brought a lot of surprising newcomers to your social circle. Don’t be so attached to your life plan that you blind yourself to alternatives.

Seize new experiences, be creative, and have fun. Remember that your youth won’t last forever.

PISCES (Feb. 20—Mar. 20)

Just because you have a history of big achievements doesn’t mean you have to worry when life takes a slower pace.

Sometimes wrapping yourself into a blanket burrito and not leaving the couch is the best way to spend a day. When faced with frustrating delays, just laugh them off.
