DECEMBER 22-JANUARY 20
Your goals are there for the taking, Capricorn, whatever they may be. Like many of the signs this month, your emotions will want to take the lead.

Aggressive! Aggressive! Beeeeee aggressive! You deserve to achieve your professional goals, Pisces. With a little self confidence, you’ll reach them.

Travel sounds nice this time of year, doesn’t it, Taurus? If you’re going to go, go now. Meanwhile, you’ve let go of past ties. You’re free right now to do whatever you put your mind to.

MAY 21-JUNE 21
Oof. Unlike some of the other signs, you’re going to be held back this month. Mercury is in retrograde (again), and it doesn’t really like to play fair.

Your drink this month is: Kiss on the Lips Cocktail

AUGUST 23-SEPTEMBER 23
Focus is your friend. The right next steps are important to you, so give them all you’ve got.
