Pisces

Pisces embodies the energy of compassion, love, acceptance and understanding; which shows in how they put themselves in other people's shoes and suffer with them. They are adaptable, devoted, creative, selfless and humble. But their innocence and humility can at times leave them vulnerable to being taken advantage of.

Their creativity and imagination vibrate at a very high level so they will be drawn to a field that allows them to express that gland. Look out for musicians, artists, designers and writers since this sign is full of them. People with a strong Pisces influence usually are very spiritual but can easily be lured away from their Spiritualism when they enter into self-pity and oversensitivity. 

When in the time of Pisces, we should all take great care to not take things personally and protect ourselves from the fragility of our emotions. It is also important to be on the lookout for laziness, to show persistence and dedication, to stay focused and grounded and most importantly, to go through life with an optimistic tone and confident smile.

Aquarius

Aquarians bring in the energy of free thinking. They are typically unconventional and march to the beat of their own drum; and even though it appears they want little to do with emotion and rely more on their intellect than their feelings, Aquarians heart is warm and giving and they are willing to go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to helping those in need. 

Those born under this sign must understand the need to become a little more connected to their feelings and the feelings of others and to practice humility, as they can easily get too involved in their own quests. When in the time of Aquarius we all need to be on the lookout for our own lack of emotion towards ourselves and others; stay clear of sarcasm, stubbornness and the need to go against the  grain. We should learn to accept responsibility, follow rules, and focus more on the little things

Capricorn

People born under the sign of Capricorn tend to be responsible, resourceful and motivated; and although sometimes can be viewed as cold or distant, they are just in the belief that they need to do things themselves in order for it to get done correctly. Capricorns are ‘old souls’ with good intuition but tend to view life in absolutes which can lead sometimes to a lack of compromise and a stubborn stance.

When in the time of Capricorn, we should all take advantage of the amazing opportunity to become more flexible and fair; humble and patient. There’s also a great opening for everyone to push past the desire to do things on our own and learn to ask for help. If we can apply humility and mercy to our daily lives we are well on our way to correcting this energy.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius is a free spirited, independent and fun fire sign. With a very complex combination of traits combined with their strong creative side and their natural wisdom, they’re always on the look for something new; as the search for the unknown is quite luring whether it’s spirituality, adventure, knowledge or excitement. Their determination to make the world a better place paves the way for internal transformation and spiritual growth. Sagittarius is a very kind and compassionate sign, but rarely do they think on their feet. Their best performances come with a little push in the right direction. Like the other fire signs they can be very childish and playful at times, especially in the way they process emotion and thoughts. They are very sensitive and can hold many things inside for a long time until they burst.

For the time of Sagittarius, the thing we really want to work on is learning to give 100% effort. Sags are usually known for getting bored easily and to be always looking for change. It’s important for Sags, and for all of us during this month, to see things through and believe in ourselves more than others believe in us. We should all focus on taking risks and believing in ourselves as well as in our ability to achieve goals.
