You might as well know right from the get-go that your new horoscope columnist is a wistful Aquarius. I’ve spent most of my life with my head in the stars. How fitting that my first assignment arrived just as the Sun and Saturn joined the party.
Saturn, the traditional ruler of Aquarius, seems to have decided that now is the time to shake everything up and throw me into a new routine.
Saturn tends to be a real downer. It’s all about hard work, responsibility, and, you guessed it, karma. And that gets amplified when the Sun and Saturn get together, which can make for some pretty tough going for ordinary mortals. You know that really overbearing father figure type — the one who never gives any praise and is always telling you to try harder or do better? Well, that’s the universe right now, reminding you that good is never good enough.
It’s not Saturn’s fault, though. Saturn just wants us to realize our full potential. It’s worth putting in the hard work this month, whether on personal development, career goals, or actually sticking to those New Year’s resolutions that you’ve already forgotten about.
If you want to thrive while you’re at it, take on a can-do attitude, dig your heels in deep, and maybe utter a “yes sir, thank you sir” to Saturn.

July 23 – Aug. 22
Have a juice box, hon. We understand it’s not your season. Maybe do the dishes that have been piling up. It can’t be showtime all the time.
Aug. 23 – Sept. 22
Trust your gut. You spend a lot of time keeping busy, but now’s your chance to just sit back and breathe. And actually, you deserve a much-needed break. Try to enjoy it.

A brief respite: the Moon’s here to help you balance and regulate your emotions for a couple of days. The lack of conflict feels nice, doesn’t it?
Oct. 23 – Nov. 21
Talking directly to the universe is a perfectly reasonable way to spend your time right now. But if you keep doing it at parties, you’re going to get some strange looks.

Spend some time keeping things in the planning phase. Sure, you love to shoot for the stars — but do you even know how you’re going to get there?

Feb. 19 – March 20
