As the birthday celebrations start winding down, easing back into a more business-as-usual routine will be inevitable.

Libra: September 23 – October 22
It’s official: Libra season will be arriving this Thursday. Have you picked out the flavor of your birthday cake and snagged a venue for your epic bday shindig? Don’t get so caught up in gathering your BFFs for celebratory cocktails that you forget to treat yo’self to a luxury getaway for one or a weekend pampering sesh at your favorite spa.

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21
You, shy? Not during Libra season, you’re not! If there was ever a time to pack on the charm and slip on your after-hours-approved lace-up ghillies, it would be now. Don’t get so caught up in the blissful honeymoon stage that you start swapping heartfelt “I love yous” before you really mean it. In a long-term relationship? It’s true what they say: Absence really does make the heart grow fonder. A GNO (or two) with your squad is exactly what the doctor ordered.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
Work hard, play harder: Allow this to be your mantra for the next few weeks as you learn to dial things down a bit. Put your workaholic tendencies on the back burner in lieu of group activities that allow you to let loose. Between apple picking dates at the orchard, a haunted hayride and Oktoberfest street fairs, you’ve got your fair share of fall rituals to pencil in.
Capricorn: December 22 – January 19
New season, new Capricorn: The next four weeks will be dedicated to getting reinspired. Whether that means trying out a new hobby or booking a getaway to Boston to see the fall foliage, a change of pace is in order. And don’t stop there! It’s not too late to launch a side hustle or turn your passion project into a full-time gig.

Aquarius: January 20 – February 1
Adventure awaits you, Aquarius! Roll up your sleeves and get ready for the ride of a lifetime — there’s no telling what the next few weeks could bring. You could enroll in a personal branding workshop, attend a conference for creative types or book an epic Eurotrip. The latter *especially* seems likely during Libra season.

Pisces: February 19 – March 20
Single, coupled up or playing the field — your relationship status could very well change before the end of the workweek. Instead of playing the “are we or aren’t we” game, start dedicating more time to hanging with your boo. A romantic getaway for two or a spontaneous date night could shine new light into your relationship. Whatever you do: Don’t be THAT crazy girlfriend who reads too much into text messages or Facebook statuses. Capiche?

Aries: March 21 – April 19
Celebrate the end of retrograde with a major lifestyle change. Between saying adieu to a bad habit and jumping back on the fall wellness bandwagon, there’s no shortage of ways to embrace a healthier YOU this season. Post retrograde is the perfect time to schedule all those annual checkups (the dentist! your eye exam!) that you always seem to brush off.
Taurus: April 20 – May 20

Gemini: May 21 – June 20
After a jam-packed few weeks, it’s time to s-l-o-w down and embrace a more streamlined lifestyle. Remember that it’s okay to opt out of a crazy Friday night in favor of a low-key evening at Chateau Gemini (Netflix and pizza are actually bae). If your messy living space is giving you daily panic attacks, then a little redecorating and game-changing feng shui may be in order.

In true T.Swift fashion, the next month will be dedicated to showering your best gal pals with affection. Between fulfilling bridesmaid duties, hosting epic sleepovers and playing matchmaker for your single AF bestie, it’s ride-or-die when it comes to achieving next-level squad #goals. Start pinning dinner party inspo STAT as you step into your hostess with the mostest shoes for a season of celebrating and playing dress up.
Leo: July 23 – August 22
Don’t you dare go splurging on yet another denim jacket when you have more important monetary matters to attend to! (Like this month’s rent or student loans.)
