The start of a new month (hello, February!) means a blank slate and an awakened sense of purpose. With Valentine’s Day officially just around the corner, there’s no time like the present to get your plans rolling. Celebrate the potential arrival of an early spring (we’re rooting for you, Punxsutawney Phil!) + scroll on for your AstroStyle horoscope.
Aquarius: January 20 – February 18
This week, it all comes down to the people you have in your inner circle. Kick bad vibes to the curb by letting go of any negative energy (ahem, or certain Debbie Downers) and embracing positivity all around. Put yourself out there at an upcoming post-work networking sesh and you’re bound to meet a kindred soul (or two).

By the end of the work week, a personal “me” day is in order. You’ve earned it, boo. Being on your A-game all day every, day is more exhausting than it seems. Say bye-bye to any obligations and hello to a Sunday of Netflix binge watching + some much needed at-home pampering.

Aries: March 21 – April 19
In all aspects of your life, remember that honesty is always the best policy. While a little white lie won’t kill anyone, mixed intentions will only get you into more hot water than intended. Clear the air with colleagues and lovers by telling it like it is and establishing trust from the get-go. None of this “are we or aren’t we” business in your romantic sector.

Leave the self-doubt at home by taking a risk in the creativity department that could pay off big down the road.
