This weekly horoscope brings a cosmic vibe shift, ushering us into a more positive space. However, there will still be some bumps in the road over the weekend. Relationships with friends and family members might feel as though they're too close for comfort and we’ll want to break free of these bonds. This energy is short-lived, so don't jump into action before thinking matters through or having discussions. Being open and honest about intimate feelings could strengthen connections if we listen to what others are saying.
November 22 - December 21
This week kicks off your solar return, which means your birthday is coming up soon. Being the amazing party planner that you are, you may set the bar too high. Before your mind goes off into a daydream about having the biggest and baddest blowout bash, make sure that your hopes are realistic. You may not have an ice sculpture or get Harry Styles to perform at your bash, but you will be surrounded by friends and family who love you — plus, you'll have a killer cake. Don't worry, Harry Styles will be there in spirit.
December 22 - January 19
You're used to running around town and biting off more than you can chew. Now, you are reaching peak exhaustion from burnout. You do not have to commit to every holiday event if you aren't feeling it. It's ok to say no and set boundaries with people. Put your needs first. If you'd rather watch The Princess Diaries in bed to decompress, embrace that vibe. It's your life — you get to call the shots. The more you listen to your body, the better you'll feel. Also, you’ll be able to attend the celebrations you want after getting some shuteye.
January 20 - February 18
Your squad wants to hang, but the places they're choosing are very posh and out of your price range. Instead of declining the invite, ask if they'd consider meeting up at a place that is more low-key and in your budget. Odds are they’ll want to accommodate you — but you have to speak up and confront the matter head on. Once you voice your concerns, the plans will change. Just don't get on your soapbox when expressing your sentiments. Let your squad see your sensitive and vulnerable side in order to rectify the situation.
February 19 - March 20
Don't let family obligations get in the way of having fun. If you plan out your days accordingly, you'll be able to attend all of the season’s most important soirees with your crew. Try to do your chores and homework in a timely manner in an effort to prove to your parents that you are responsible. Then, they'll be open to you attending the festivities — as long as it’s supervised and you oblige by their curfew. You can have your cake and eat it too, if you find a middle ground and act in a mature manner.
March 21 - April 19
You have a flashy attitude. Sometimes you can be overly showy, which can make those who are close to you feel as though you're egotistical (but, aren’t we all at times?). This week, a few pals will call on you to give them a lesson in confidence. Before you shut it down, consider doing it. This way no one will call you pompous again — they’ll admire your swagger and ability to help others grow. It’ll prove to be a win-win for you and change your reputation for the better.
April 20 - May 20
Sometimes you have to put your foot down and slam the breaks on relationships when people are acting erratically. In order to regain your power in these situations, the only way to react is to not. Having the last word in an argument doesn’t mean sending an intense text or having an angry response. You don’t have to share your feelings once another has crossed a boundary. Give yourself time to think about what you want to say. Sending a heartfelt message when you’re ready will make you feel more in control of the situation and your emotions.
May 21 - June 20
It's unlike you to take a step away from the gossip because you're usually the one facilitating the rumor mill. However, this week you want to create harmony and peace among your peers. If that means putting an end to the salacious news you're hearing that you know isn't true, so be it. You don't like members of your squad (or anyone else) to be attacked over stories that are false. Use your investigative side to track down who began the false tale and squash the story from the originator. That will restore the positive vibes in your squad.
June 21 - July 22
Family gatherings bring out your sentimental side, but they can also be triggering at times — that is, if you don't create boundaries with your brood. When they ask you personal or embarrassing questions about your life, you can decline to answer. You don't have to share everything with everyone, and you shouldn't be expected to. Setting limits is a helpful tool that garners you respect. That’s why it is up to you to draw the line in the sand on your own terms.
July 23 - August 22
As the holidays approach, you want to go to town on the gifts you are handing out. The issue is that your bank account won't be able to compensate for your generous spirit. Rather than get upset about it, try to find new and unique ways to spread joy to others. DIY one-of-a-kind cards make special ornaments, or do a friend a big favor as a present. That way you’ll be able to show that you care, but on a budget that works for you. The best gifts come from the heart, not the wallet.
August 23 - September 22
The week ahead brings a lot of highs and lows in relationships. In times like these, it's advisable to lean on your besties for support. They want to be there for you in any way that they can. Although you are guarded at times, you shouldn't hesitate to let them in. They’ll offer you the consistency that you desire even if you're not getting it from your boo. By the end of the week, the energy will calm down and you’ll be in a calmer and sweeter space with your S.O./crush. Like most of us, they're having an hard time.
September 23 - October 22
You might be stuck in the texting stage of a flirtation with someone you met through a friend. Dating someone through text has been a great way to connect, but you want something tangible. The caveat is that you’re shy and nervous in making the move to initiate a rendezvous. Put a feeler out and once they reciprocate the sentiment, let them know that you’d love to meet for coffee. As long as you can get out of this stage, the vibe will shift and you'll see a real relationship develop.
October 23 - November 21
Your energy levels are heightening, making you want to take on the world’s issues. Translation: You might want to pick fights with people when they don’t reciprocate your level of enthusiasm for situations. The best way to use your lively and spirited vibe is to start a campaign amongst your peers that raises money for a cause you care about or volunteer at a charity. As long as you choose to use your impassioned sentiments for good, you’ll feel amazing about your choice to put your faith and time into a meaningful activity. Your friends will soon follow your lead.
