May 21 – June 20
Gemini season, much like Yeezy season, is a dope time to be whoever you want to be. No one’s watching as closely as you think they are and anyone who is doesn’t have any say in the matters of Ya Girl anyway. Spend some time alone, spend some time being quiet, then finish out the month getting lost in a crowd somewhere. It can be a dance club or a book club, whatever fits best. This is a good time to wear some flowing garments. Get yr gauzy fairy wear on, y’know?
June 21 – July 22
Trying something new is a good way to get your creative juices flowing but don’t lose sight of what keeps you held together or forgo previous self-care rituals in the process. This is gonna be a long month but not a bad one if you keep your focus focused and your time in order. Have you considered a new haircut? Have you considered watching an Adam Sandler film? If your answer is the latter, well…. We’ll pray 4 u.
July 23 – August 22
Last month was the glow up and this month is the keep glowin’. It’s not all sunshine and sparkles, but if you keep your head up there’s no telling what else is going to come your way. Don’t let all your good vibes get in the way of being gracious to people in your path, though. You’ve got the tendency of only looking out for yourself and while it’s served you well in the past, you might be overlooking some people who need your energy too. Consider re-centering your focus for a split sec and directing it elsewhere. You’re gonna reap the returns. *prayer hands emoji*
August 23 – September 22
Lots of change is coming your way and the best way to prepare for that is taking stock in where you’re at right now. Don’t get caught in a tidal wave of worry later if you can save yourself the trouble – what can you lose? What can you make time for? What have you been neglecting? Get some sun if you can, dip your feet in a body of water if you can. If you haven’t had a Rice Krispy Treat since you were a child, I highly recommend. They hold up!
September 23 – October 22
Yr power color heading into the summer is yellow. Think Beyoncé in the video for Hold Up. Think Rihanna at the 2015 Met Gala. Think the sparkle emoji. Think this statue of Joan of Arc. Okay, the last one is gold, but that’s a good power color too. Don’t get caught up taking the word of everyone who says they have “good intentions” this month. Call your own shots, even if they’re insane half court lobs at the last second. It might be risky, but sometimes you gotta do that in order to shine.
October 23 – November 21
Last month might’ve been a hell-raiser, but this month. THIS. MONTH. Your lipgloss is particularly glossy. Your name might as well be Stella b/c it seems like you’ve truly got your groove back! Don’t forget that grooves ebb and flow and can take practice. If you fall into a rut here and there your time is better spent thanking yourself for all the hard work you’ve been doing than beating yourself up for stumbling. Meditate on the importance of this old adage. Go get ‘em.
November 22 – December 21
You can be a Boss Bitch without necessarily being the boss (yet). Contemplate on the areas in your life that are leaderless and make some moves. Get your foot in the door where you can. Take no prisoners. Take no roadblocks seriously. Be ruthless. You can be all of this without losing your center, without losing your softness. Eat some fruit. Watch your favorite childhood movie. Throw some tactful shade at the haters in your life just to remind them you’re comin’ for their *cash with wings emoji*
December 22 – January 19
Hey Cap, did you know you share a sign with some of the truest G.O.A.Ts? David Bowie? Check! Muhammed Ali? Check! Lebron James? Check check check! Make your fellow signs proud by doing you the whole fucking month. Ask for what you need. Demand better of yourself and your friendships. Meet your biggest opposition with a knowing smile and an arsenal of cunning plans. Look to those closest to you for support but don’t rely on them for it all – no one knows you better than you (but that doesn’t mean some outsiders don’t have a helpful outlook)! Take yourself to a movie. Wear linen. Blast LEMONADE.
January 20 – February 18
Remember last month? The advice about the snake? Well, your partner decided not to keep it even though you’d settled on being okay with it. And maybe there’s something to that. You can get surprising results when you trust yourself to make hard decisions, even if they’re not the sort of calls you’ve previously made. No one ever got nowhere by pacing in the same spot. It’s never a bad time to lotion your elbows. Avoid anyone with the name Tony, I’ve never met one who wasn’t a jerk.
February 19 – March 20
Much like your Aquarian pals, this month is a good a month as ever to avoid the Tonys in your life. If you don’t know any Tonys, how about Gregs? Pauls. Zachs. The last few months have been breezy baby, but that doesn’t mean you can sleep on keeping your eyes on the prize. Read something non-fiction, watch a documentary, keep your brain thinking, knowing. If you haven’t listen to Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” any time recently, I highly recommend. What a banger, imho.
March 21 – April 19
Buy yourself a houseplant. Buy your closest friend their favorite sweet treat. Hold a routine for a whole week this month even if it’s just making your bed in the morning or drinking more water than usual. Aim your impulses towards the long-con instead of what’s right in front of you. You don’t have to have a full fucking game plan but maybe try looking outside your immediacy for a second. You might find something surprising. You might find something sobering. Listen to Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and don’t forget to stretch every now and then.
April 20 – May 20
Every Single Awful Thing In Retrograde is finally over and you can come out of hiding.. While the last month might have been a good time for reflection, this next one is time for gettin’ shit done! Summer’s on its way, bay bay! You’ll need to clear out your calendar of all the put-off tasks (emotional, literal) if you’re going to have the space and time to truly enjoy yourself. Save your pennies, keep your eyes on the prize, don’t forget to hydrate. Avoid getting into a new TV show just this second, no one has time for that.
