GRAPHIC ILLUSTRATIONS BY ESMÉ-BLEECKER ADAMS AND GRACE GETMAN
Rat (born in 1984, 1996, 2008)
Though 2020 is the year of the Rat, take things one at a time. The Rat may be found overachieving and overworking in order to reach goals. Goal-oriented Rats may tend to rush the process to achievement when things are going too slow. Remember to grab opportunities.
Ox (born in 1985, 1997, 2009)
Ox, you may get lonely at times, but you don’t mind. This month, you will find comfort in being less lonely as you surround yourself with a person or passion that awakens you. Your calm routine remains, and you will continue to work the way you always have. However, you will discover new interests as you continue to learn more about yourself.
Tiger (born in 1986, 1998, 2010)
Tiger, you can get a bit aggressive with what you want because you feel the need to have power over your situations and the people in your life. This month, you will be introduced to a new way of thinking when it comes to how you use your power. You will have to choose between your passion for control and your passion for freedom as situations arise.
Rabbit (born in 1987, 1999, 2011)
Rabbit, your overall sensitivity to situations will keep you overthinking if you do not learn to let go of trivial matters. Though you keep out of a fight, you let stress eat away at your time and your mind. This month, allow yourself to be hurt without pretending you are not. It is better to be aware of negative emotions than to let them slide. Thankfully, luck is on your side this month.
Dragon (born in 1988, 2000, 2012)
Assertive yet impulsive, a Dragon is perhaps the most adventurous of the signs. You keep your cool, responsible personality for professional situations, but you have an adventurous and impulsive side when you are with your friends or family. This month is all about self-awareness, and there will be peaks in your professional and relationship sectors.
Snake (born in 1989, 2001, 2013)
Slow and steady wins the race; that’s the mantra for the Snake today. Snake, this month you will be venturing into something fresh, new and away from your experiences. As you experiment and try your best, feel free to set boundaries when it comes to socializing. You value your alone time to rejuvenate, so make sure you allocate time for yourself in the midst of a chaotic month.
Horse (born in 1990, 2002, 2014)
The old saying “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink” most closely explains the nature of a Horse. Horses are ones who will only do what they set their mind to and not what others expect of them. You are capable of challenging yourself this month and fighting for what you desire and deserve with no room for tiredness.
Sheep (born in1991, 2003, 2015)
Oh, Sheep. It seems like the most important quality of the Sheep (or goat) has been missing for the past few days, or perhaps weeks. Although your life may be going unplanned or rushed at times, allow yourself to get a little emotional rather than practical when approaching your heart this month.
Monkey (born in 1992, 2004, 2016)
Though you may find yourself going bananas as you search for a comfortable niche emotionally, allow yourself to open up to new people this month. The new year can only kick off on a great start if you leap from one branch to another. Monkey, see what’s out there before settling for a goal or group of friends that do not match your energy.
Rooster (born in 1993, 2005, 2017)
This month, you, the outgoing, flamboyant Rooster, will find yourself stealing attention with your achievements or meaningful conversations with others. Rooster, you know exactly how to communicate. However, find the line between being a people-pleaser and having a good time.
Dog (born in 1994, 2006, 2018)
Dogs will see their alertness and passion for justice come to use this month as their worrisome nature doesn’t allow them to take a break. Be aware of your actions and temper this month as it may break relationships if you are not careful and calm when discussing.
Pig (born in 1995, 2007, 2019)
Pigs are honest and kind by nature. This month is all about enjoying what you do and making sure that you retain your integrity throughout every obstacle you face. Your generosity will show directly in your actions this month.
