2018 Horoscope: Pisces

PISCES

FEB 19–MAR 20

ELEMENT: WATER

KEYWORDS: ARTISTIC, INTUITIVE, COMPASSIONATE, WISE, FORGIVING

In life’s recipe, you’re the ingredient that makes everything taste so much better. You’re more than an expert networker and mixer; you connect whole social circles. That’s likely because you’re helpful without expectation, faithful without wavering, and empathic without judgment. You get—really get—who people are and what they need, so of course you rule at the emotional part of relationships. Oh, and did we mention your flair for art and music? Yeah, you’ve got that, too.

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

If your groundhog predicts anything, it’s going to be a few more weeks of extra-inspired creativity. Whether hanging with your besties or taking advantage of alone time, there’s no wrong environment for turning your ideas into something dazzling. You’ll feel great—especially if you have a birthday coming up!

 

2018 Horoscope: Aries

ARIES

MAR 21–APR 19

ELEMENT: FIRE

KEYWORDS: DETERMINED, DYNAMIC, PIONEER, ENTHUSIASTIC, COURAGEOUS

You blow our minds with all the things you cross off your to-do-list. You hate to be bored and are drawn to adventure. Fortunately, your friends are far too fond of you to be jealous of all you accomplish. They love you because you‘re SO VERY accepting and open—which explains a couple of the eccentrics you hang out with sometimes. (We say that with love.) It does you good to press “pause” from time to time by channeling your off-the-astrological-charts originality into crafts, creating, cooking, or making.

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

That scarf you never finished knitting? The photos you’ve been meaning to artfully display? This is the perfect time to get serious about unfinished projects—you have laser focus and mad skills. Plus, you’ll need the break from your heavy work schedule. So revisit the stuff you almost forgot about entirely, pour yourself a glass of wine, and dive in.

 

2018 Horoscope: Taurus

TAURUS

APR 20–MAY 20

ELEMENT: EARTH

KEYWORDS: STRONG-MINDED, LOYAL, STRIVES FOR SECURITY, PRACTICAL

No one’s more devoted to family and friends than you. There’s not an ounce of criticism about them when you’re around. You have lots of friends, and you’ve known many of them since you were making friendship bracelets. Your patience and persistence make you the paragon of giving shape to projects. In fact, many of your sentences start with “Why don’t we . . .?” And you’re great at making others feel appreciated, whether it’s dropping off a one-of-a-kind gift or a bouquet from your garden. You’re reliable, warm-hearted, and loving…who wouldn’t want you in their tribe?

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

Love makes the world go ‘round. Friendship too, if we’re talking about your world this month. Your eccentric friends have your best interests at heart when they encourage you to be true to your inner self. And listen up, all you single ladies—you may meet someone special in February. And if you’re already in a relationship, your romance will grow even deeper. What’s not to love?

 

2018 Horoscope: Gemini

GEMINI

MAY 21–JUN 20

ELEMENT: AIR

KEYWORDS: COMMUNICATOR, INTELLIGENT, INQUISITIVE, QUICK-THINKER, CHANGEABLE

You put the “social” in “social butterfly.” And people love you for it. Life of the party—that’s you. When it comes to entertaining, you’re the perfect host (and guest). And you enjoy a good heart-to-heart as much as anyone—maybe even more. You’re a body (and mouth) in motion: eating, joking, talking, and texting simultaneously. Some say you have two personalities, and no one knows which one they’ll encounter. But we would never say that—we prefer “adaptable” and “versatile.” So fly, social butterfly, fly.

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

Woo-hoo! This is a worry-free month for you as life unfolds with a little help from your friends. And while there may be smallish disagreements in close relationships, you also have an opportunity to be more upfront and to grow even closer. Cue the dramatic bah-bah-bahm because an estranged family member may even reconnect. That would be huge!

 

2018 Horoscope: Cancer

CANCER

JUN 21–JUL 22

ELEMENT: WATER

KEYWORDS: SENSITIVE, NURTURER, CARING, ARTISTIC, HOMEBODY

You wear your heart on your fashionable bell sleeve. Everyone knows you’re loyal, empathetic, and emotional, all qualities that combine to make you loving—and lovable, too. Your intuition and creativity mean that you’re one awesome gift giver, crafting that just-right something for anyone lucky enough to be celebrated by you. (Let’s face it: You love to zhuzh things up.) You treasure all things home and family, and enjoy a quiet evening on the sofa more than any fancy event. Sometimes your imagination gets the best of you, and you tend to worry without cause, but that’s nothing a bubble bath and a glass of Prosecco won’t cure.

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

Be careful when going all in with that new creative project around the first of the month, when the stars aren’t exactly aligned for success. Better to wait until the end of the month when you’ll be so inspired, your ideas will outnumber your bottles of neutral pinkish nail polish. Who knows? You might even take up something brand new.

 

2018 Horoscope: Leo

LEO

JUL 23–AUG 22

ELEMENT: FIRE

KEYWORDS: POWERFUL, AMBITIOUS, SELF-CONFIDENT, NATURAL LEADER, KIND

Confident, charismatic, creative—that’s you. You’re really good at taking charge, too. Others may call you “bossy” but what they really mean is “visionary” or “idealist.” And when you complete a project, you’ll take high-fives, fist bumps, woo-hoos, and any other form of praise you can get. But while you love appreciation, you’re happy to scooch over and let the spotlight shine on someone else. Socializing is one of your special skills: You were born to entertain, choosing creative recipes and table settings that reflect your elegance, pride, hospitality, and generosity.

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

“Champagne taste on a boxed wine budget” may sound familiar this month, but no worries. Instead of buying expensive artwork or furniture to totally redo your living room, why not try thrifting it into something new. The possibilities are as endless as your creativity. And you’ve got tons of that. You’ll be just like one of those home shows, only better.

 

2018 Horoscope: Virgo

VIRGO

AUG 23–SEP 22

ELEMENT: EARTH

KEYWORDS: ANALYTICAL, PRACTICAL, OBSERVANT, REFLECTIVE, GENTLE

You’re a perfectionist. You kind of have to be with your perception of quality and attention to detail. Having people over for dinner? You’re the one who’s polishing the silver, putting out the grown-up wine glasses, and rearranging the flowers right up to the last minute—which is great because BOOM! Insta-worthy. You nail it every time. Still, with all that you could brag about, you’re remarkably modest. Intelligent? Absolutely. Creative? Don’t get us started. But you’re shy about being center stage so you prefer ghostwriting and songwriting to any of the performing arts. You’re super kind and tender, too.

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

A brand new year gives you the urge to make your nest the best. It’s time to enhance the spaces where you live and create, whether that means wall-papering an entryway, decluttering a craft room, or—eep!—moving to a brand new home. You don’t need to wait for spring to clean. You’re ready to get your sparkle on now.

 

2018 Horoscope: Libra

LIBRA

SEP 23–OCT 22

ELEMENT: AIR

KEYWORDS: SOCIAL, GRACIOUS, DIPLOMATIC, COOPERATIVE, FAIR-MINDED

If there’s one thing you want in your world, it’s balance. Not in an oh-that-frame-is-crooked-and-I-can’t-just-sit-here kind of way. It’s more about needing to bring fairness and equality to everyone around you—kinda like a super hero. And you’re one hero who wants a sidekick around as much as possible. Whether it’s a day out with your bestie or a night in with your person, you prefer partnership to alone time. Your inspiration comes from deep conversation and good books (probably two at a time!). Any time something sparks your imagination, you say, “Make it a double.”

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

Pay no mind to that groundhog. Shadow or no shadow, you’re starting February with a burst of energy. Whether you point it toward family and friends or toward a creative effort is all on you. If that energy fades in the back half of the month—hey, life’s all about balance. No penalties for coasting a bit.

 

2018 Horoscope: Scorpio

SCORPIO

OCT 23–NOV 21

ELEMENT: WATER

KEYWORDS: RESOURCEFUL, PASSIONATE, WILLFUL, DEDICATED, TRUE-BLUE

Don’t want no crap, won’t take no crap: That’s you, friend. Call that attitude fierce or aware or woke—you won’t settle for anything less yourself, and you have proven yourself time and again to friends who will call you loyal to the end. When your eyes are on what you want, you are determined and decisive. Why do people jump right in to be part of your squad? You’re a natural leader and a natural bestie. When a friend is in need, you’re on it. When a friend needs advice, you offer it. When a friend has a secret, you guard it like it’s your own.

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

Your February words to live by: Gut check! Don’t hesitate to put your “I’m decisive!” voice on mute and your instincts to commit on pause. Run any big decisions through your heart filter—or get some input from your circle of wise women. A great way to do that: Invite some pals to a theme night of your creation.

 

2018 Horoscope: Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS

NOV 22–DEC 21

ELEMENT: FIRE

KEYWORDS: IDEALISTIC, FUNNY, OUTDOORSY, GENEROUS, UNFILTERED

Freedom! That’s your battle cry. You want to roam free, feel free, do what you do, and say what you want. There are no limits to your creativity. You’re the ideal travel buddy for a spontaneous day trip. Your energy, curiosity and enthusiasm for anything new make you perfect for taking point on any excursion—near or far. Your open mind and wanderlust frequently drive (or fly!) you to different locales and cultures.

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

Feel that? Yep—cabin fever and ding dang do you have it! You’re gonna wanna run like the wind. When you do, bring family along; you won’t regret it. Whether you’re about town or on the road, get creative: Take pics, fill your sketchbook, tag a sidewalk with chalk. Don’t keep anything inside!

 

2018 Horoscope: Capricorn

CAPRICORN

DEC 22–JAN 19

ELEMENT: EARTH

KEYWORDS: DISCIPLINED, RESPONSIBLE, KNOWING, TRADITIONAL, WELL-MANAGED

When your tribe is looking for the grown-up in the room, all eyes are on you. You’re the organizer, the list-maker, the pal with a plan—and if that means that every now and then you’re also the fun-killer, fine. You’re the one everybody relies on to make things happen—the nights out, the weekends away, and the other fun stuff that seems to magically work out for you and your friends. What, that table for eight on a Saturday night just happened to be open? It’s more than just managing things: You’re a master at managing yourself, and those close to you admire you for it.

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

Watched as all of your pals got a big start to the new year? Now it’s your turn. Love is in the air—but for what? A redecorating project, a new playlist, a clever insight that breathes new fun into your work…there’s lots of ways ahead for you to feel the love, Cappy.

2018 Horoscope: Aquarius

AQUARIUS

JAN 20–FEB 18

ELEMENT: AIR

KEYWORDS: EXPRESSIVE, INDEPENDENT, ADVOCATING, PROGRESSIVE, ORIGINAL

For someone who can come off as quiet, you know how to find your voice when you want to. Usually, it’s when you’re standing up for someone else. You can imagine a better, happier world for us all—and you can envision a roadmap to get there. Your tribe is your jam, but you value your independence and alone-time…so your inner circle is a pretty exclusive club. And they’re the first to notice when you’ve put yourself at the end of the line long enough and need to rest, restore, and recharge.

HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2018

It’s a month of choices for you. Sounds dreadful, but no! Here’s a gift of advice, birthday or not: Choose people over stuff and you can’t go wrong. Eat with a pal. Work with a great team. Create collaboratively. Partner up for a run or yoga. People bring energy this month—seek them out!
