Observing the closure of 2018

Aries (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19)

November probably felt like one of the better months out of the year for you, just from the time you spent reflecting on how long you’ve tolerated toxicity. Your closer friends became a lot closer, and you’ve established a closer relationship with yourself, as well – your voice is louder than you’d ever thought it would be, and it’s filled you with confidence and vigor for what December has in store. You’re gearing up to rearrange everything in your life as 2018 wraps up, and there’s nothing more exciting than a New Year’s resolution you can stick to: looking out for number one from now on.

Taurus (Apr. 20 – May 20)

November was a very tender month for you. You redefined a lot of close relationships recently, which has filled your abnormally big heart with more security and love. It was a reassurance you weren’t sure you needed until now. With the holidays slowly approaching, though, be careful not to overspend like you tend to, Taurus. Just because you’re renewed by the overwhelming support you didn’t know you had doesn’t justify wringing out your finances!

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

The fickle one you tend to be has settled back into a place you feel comfortable with, for now, anyways. As a Gemini, you tend to jump from one goal to another, which tends to ruffle the feathers of your more grounded friends and family (some may have reacted more angrily than anticipated). November, you felt the most “sure” you think you’ve ever been, but now…you’re not so sure, again. December will give you some time to relax your fleeting mind, talk to those who know you best and figure out what it is that you’re truly aiming for.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

The past few weeks have been very stressful for you. November has brought you a lot closer to a mental break down than you’ve felt for a long time and for a lot of reasons, and it’s done nothing but make each day feel a lot longer. Instead of carrying the weight of it on your back all at once, try to find better ways to cope with it all. Remember, it’s not wise to hold onto stress. Also remember: your circle of close friends are never annoyed by helping you sort your feelings. Pick a day this December to talk it out with your chosen few.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

November was a good month for introspection. After letting down your pride-laden walls to speak to those you’ve offended for some unknown reason, you’ve had to choose between coming to terms with you being at fault, or deciding it was them just being too sensitive. Make sure you spend some time looking at each case through each lens, to be absolutely positive you’re coming to the right conclusion. Don’t be so hasty to cut people off, Leo, you need a lot more people in your corner than you think you do.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

This November, you were a little short tempered with those who you recognize probably didn’t deserve it. Now, it’s an internal struggle with whether you’re ready to acknowledge and apologize to those who caught the tail end of your usual reaction to stress. Instead of spending time mulling over an apology, try just turning the tables, taking a breath to put your issues aside and being there for them. They’ll be a lot more willing to overlook your actions than you probably realize.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

November was challenging for you, as you had to lay down a goal you were sure was going to happen this year. It’s alright, though – your chin remains high as you’ve found a way around it that you’re comfortable with. While you’re still in the habit of comparing your journey to others, you’re starting to focus your eyes on what’s on your plate. It’s not what you’ve done for so many years, but the more you do it, the better you feel about it – and you thoroughly enjoy it.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Who knew you could be so social and articulate, Scorpio? After last month’s emotional journey, you’ve come out of your shell a little more than you ever thought possible, and it feels good. While you’re still not exactly sure how you feel about this new aspect of yourself, you know that it’s been helping you get to where you need to go a lot quicker than before. Make December the month where you take a break from the self-criticism, and focus on the benefits on what you’ve discovered within yourself. It’s okay to not be in your head so much sometimes, Scorpio.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

After you’ve come to the conclusion that you were the reason someone close took off, you decided it’s within your grasp to also fix it. While you’re eager to this, make sure your eagerness doesn’t also translate into defending yourself. Abandon any previous assumptions and try not to anticipate certain responses or reactions. You can learn a lot from what’s coming for you, you just have to be willing to receive it. Don’t forget that this person is giving you a second chance, Sagittarius. It would be wise to not take that for granted.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 18)

You surprised yourself this November. The image you had in your mind about how people perceived you to be has proven false, and now, you’re not sure how to take that realization. It seems these past few months have taken the assumptions you had about yourself and challenged them. Before chalking it up to people just being overly nice to make you feel better, ask yourself: what if it’s true? What if you’re really not as cumbersome and awkward as you thought you were? These are all good challenges to your self image. You’ve always been quick to give people the benefit of the doubt. Don’t forget to include yourself.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Your proud nature may have gotten you in some trouble, Aquarius. You tend to take on a lot in good spirit, but that can sometimes come back to bite you. This is one of those times. A lot of people are now looking to you for answers or seek your time for help, and while you’re usually a pro with handling other people’s problems, you’re getting to a point where you can’t even tend to your own. Take a breath, and try to achieve a balance between what you want to do and what you need to do. And if you’re too swamped to offer your time, don’t hesitate to say so. Just make sure you do it gently.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)

You’ve always been described as sort of a maternal/paternal figure, Pisces, and that’s because you’re so sensitive to the feelings of others. It’s not a bad thing most of the time, however, sometimes you can invest your feelings into causes that aren’t worthy of your efforts. November has pulled you in different directions with situations that called for your attention and those that didn’t – but you’re getting better at discerning which ones are worth your devotion. After all, December is going to demand from you in the form of emotional availability. Make sure you’re ready.
