Wondering about how this upcoming month is going to affect your zodiac sign? You’ve come to the right place. I will be your astrology prodigy!


This month is going to feel like it is going by slowly. The Mars retrograde in Pisces is coming to an end, only to lead us into another dreaded Mercury retrograde. The end of the month will bring back feelings of nostalgia and the realization that things are not quite as they used to be. Take this time to reflect and be forgiving of past wrongdoings from yourself and others. Grudges are meant to be let go in order to grow.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21):

Happy birthday month! This is your time! This month will be perfect for moving those pieces in your life that are not complete to where you want them to go. Your relationships will be the main focus of the retrograde until mid-January. This means there may be distance and trouble in relationships. Be sensitive instead of aggressive.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19):

Capricorns, there may not be a tight close to the year that you desire. There may be some troubles and gaps in employment and productivity. You may feel a little burned out, but that is alright! Learn to rest and take it easy on yourself.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18):

You, out of everyone, will feel how slowly this month is going. Frustrations around love and hobbies will arise, and you might feel stumped. I promise it won’t last forever. Do not jump into your emotions and fight without using your head. Be patient.

Pisces (February 19-March 20):

The end of your year will end with a fizzle. You will be gaining a lot of energy that is associated with frustration, but try your best to push the energy into moving forward and not digging your hole deeper. This month will also bring a lot of family and friends closer to you. Love and patience are what you will be gifted with.

Aries (March 21–April 19):

You might feel like you keep hitting roadblocks at every turn, and this will further your frustrations. Try to lie low. Don’t push yourself past the limits you know you have. Rest and recharge instead of pushing your problems up a hill. Communication will be hard, but be confident in your intentions and be clear with your words. Fortune is coming sooner than you think.

Taurus (April 20–May  20):

Money will be tight this month. Be careful with how you spend what you have. Social energy should be radiating off of you, and your relationships will feel emotionally fulfilling. This is the month when your dreams and aspirations are going to slowly start to come true. Strike when you can and take hold of the day.

Gemini (May 21–June 20):

This is going to be a challenging month. I promise it will not last forever, though. Push through the frustrations. Try not to be overly impulsive. Midway through December, you will reach a milestone of positivity when it comes to relationships. Do not be self-conscious and doubt your positive traits; assert who you are and what you have to offer.

Cancer (June 21-July 22):

This month, the focus for Cancer will be on personal and mental health. Go with the flow and stop running against the current. Lay low. Money will eventually start coming in, and possible travel is on the horizon, as well as a solidified relationship status.

Leo (July 23–August 22):

Friendships will be rocky this month. Try not to lash out at those close to you because everyone’s patience is wearing thin. A heartfelt milestone is ahead as well. Grab what you want and don’t watch it pass you by. Stand up for what you want. Your life is about to be kicked into hyperdrive for you. Be ready.

Virgo (August 23–September 22):

Career is going to feel exhausting this month. You are going to be thrown for a couple of loops as well. Do not fight authority figures either; it will not end well. I guarantee it. Relationships will go great this month, with a lot of positivity infusing them. If you are single, it is time to start your hunt for a significant other, and that does not mean going back to your ex.

Libra (September 23–October 22):

Don’t stress yourself out! Stop focusing on things that are not of any benefit to you and focus on the things that are. Some things that are challenging are secretly blessings in disguise. Do not push everything away; give some things a try. There is a lot of “soulmate” energy in this month for you.

Scorpio (October 23- November 21):

This month will feel like a headache. Do not burn through your cash, just because it is on a debit card doesn’t mean it is not “real money.” You may find yourself falling in love this month, whether that is with a hobby, a movie, a book, or a person. This is going to be especially lucky for you this time as well.
