Your Personal Winter Horoscope

By Emma Buttell and Grear Palmer

Aries (March 21- April 19): Aries give off a certain confidence and optimism, which, directed in the wrong way, can turn into impatience. Right now, you’re craving stability and clarity. Luckily, the Winter Solstice is bringing a new way of thought, causing you to ask, “What’s next?” Invite these feelings and begin to focus on cleaning up overlooked or unfinished business. 

Taurus (April 20- May 20): Tauruses are known for their practicality and reliability. Uranus in Taurus causes a break from normal routine, which can be uneasy for Tauruses due to their grounded nature.  Yet this is a period of revitalization and progression into a forward. In this time, symbols will appear that make you reevaluate your connections and what kind of future you envision. 

Gemini (May 21- June 20): Gemini tends to have indecisive and inconsistent qualities. This December, a full moon enters Gemini’s path. This energy will cause Geminis to make some finalized decisions and complete tasks that have been put aside. Known for their ever-changing and flexible nature, Geminis should use this time to really focus on important work.  

Cancer (June 22- July 22): The first full moon this winter season will be entering sensitive Cancer. This will allow you to focus on your feelings and emotions. The full moon honors family, making it a perfect time to strengthen family bonds. Focusing on your relationships will get you through the cold months. 

Leo (July 23- August 22): This winter month, your typical fierceness will be joined with energy. These feelings will allow you to accomplish a long-awaited goal, giving you a sense of power. Your energy will attract attention and gain you loyalty. 

Virgo (August 23- September 22): Virgos tend to be very self-critical and over-analytical. In this winter season, it is time to focus on your mental health. Past cycles have caused you to close yourself off, but this winter, you should allow new experiences to enter with limited caution. 

Libra (September 23- October 22): Libra’s charm will grow even more this winter season. This will allow you to make a good first impression on someone new in your life. Take your time coming into new relationships and experiences. This will allow you to completely open yourself up to them.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): After exiting Scorpio season, this sign will be tested on its fight or flight response. Due to Mars' appearance in this sign’s cycle, in upcoming challenges, Scorpios will be encouraged to use their born passion and fiery nature to assert themselves. 

Sagittarius (November 23-December 21): This winter season, Mercury will enter this sign sparking a period of shared information. Sagittariuses are known for their open-mindedness and curiosity. During this period, growth in communication will help resolve turmoil with close friends and family. This will allow Sagittariuses to expand their understanding of close ones.  

Capricorn (December 22-January 20): On December 2nd, Jupiter will enter Capricorn. Jupiter symbols generosity and fuels positivity. When this planet enters a sign, it is known to provide miracles and hope. This winter season, Capricorns will experience new opportunities that they were not previously provided. Being an Earth sign, Capricorns hold characteristics of practicality and groundedness. During this season, let unexpected events give way to new experiences. 

Aquarius (January 20- February 18): Aquarius biggest problem is their feeling of being constrained and limited in emotional communication. As Venus enters Aquarius, this winter is a time to truly focus on yourself. Try to release yourself from emotional attachments and restore your self awareness. 

Pisces (February19- March 20): As the Mercury retrograde is coming closer to Pieces, it will be harder for you to communicate your emotions. You will need to be less of an emotional thinker and focus on being rational to get through the winter season. You will come in touch with your creative side which will allow you to communicate artistically. Your compassionate self will want to give this season, but remember to focus on yourself.
