While we spent a majority of November with mercury in retrograde, December shows a bit of promise! Jupiter changes signs on December 2 and makes a glorious and innovative trine to Uranus in the process. Jupiter only changes signs once a year, an extra special treat before we ring in the New Year. Combined with the Solar Eclipse on December 26th, this should also help to restore some hope and creative possibility into the world. We’ll need it to prepare for January!
Aries | March 21 – April 19
Aries, you’re known for your passion and drive, but even you have limits. 2019 has seen many an Aries so driven and determined to fulfill their obligations and goals that they were at risk of burning out. It’s time for some triage. If you were to pick one defining goal that most feeds your fiery soul and invests it with excitement and enthusiasm, which would that be? That is the direction that you need to go. Focus on those particular things that nurture your radiant heart, not squelch it. This fiery pillow resonates with that purpose.
Taurus | April 20 – May 20
Taurus, albeit quietly, this month you’re declaring to the world: “I am a free bird, and no cage contains me!” You can just feel the excitement emerging this month as you come to realize that there are alternatives. For some, you may even find that everything you once believed and identified seems no longer valid. The world beckons, and it’s time to explore. Whether that means traveling, learning, or trying on some new experiences for size, be like these cranes flying high and free—your world is growing along with your perspective!
Gemini | May 21 – June 20
At this time of year, it’s natural to want to share your goodwill and cheer with others. It is indeed a festive time, and a waking time of heart. When you reflect on the ups and downs of the previous year, it soon becomes evident whom you can truly depend on. When thinking of showing your appreciation to those who mean so much to you, look for something equally lasting and meaningful. Even with a bounty of beautiful designs to choose from, how can you possibly go wrong with this magical throw pillow?
Cancer | June 21 – July 22
One thing that should have become evident by now is that it takes a village to accomplish our goals and tasks. We cannot do it alone. It should also be evident as to who has been there for you through thick and thin, and highs and lows. This is a month of festive celebration. Why not celebrate all those who stood by you, picking up the pieces where you left off? You couldn’t have managed it without them! Here’s to community working all together.
Leo | July 23 – August 22
Most people tend to be creatures of habit. However, it is said that even if you make small changes in your daily routines, it can open up your perspective to all sorts of creative possibilities. Think of one small thing that you can do differently each day, and you will begin to see things you never noticed before! Leo has been diligently paying attention to those things and those activities that dare to open up some of their latent but patiently simmering creative channels. Now it’s time to apply some of that creative ingenuity! These partying cats are right up your alley.
Virgo | August 23 – September 22
This is a month of holidays, celebrations and traditions. It’s also a month of radical and genius ideas. Although the old ways of entertaining and celebrating may have been festive and fun, look for opportunities to create newer and even better festivities and traditions. Dare to be innovative and creative: celebrating your own way in your own fashion. Add this colorful pillow into the mix, and invite those new people over as well! Be spontaneous and creative, and there’s no telling what you may discover. Virgo is well-positioned to find out.
Libra | September 23 – October 22
You might want to start thinking about some of those home projects you’ve been meaning to tackle this year. Be open to creative solutions and alternatives. Even small changes, such as these throw pillows, can prove to be inspiring, and help to open you up to even more creative and innovative ideas. Pick a design that resonates with your Libra soul, but might also have a story to tell, such as these birds inviting themselves over for dinner. They’re probably not going to be the only ones!
Scorpio | October 23 – November 21
I knew someone who used to spend their day-off traveling on the subway, randomly getting off at any stop along the way. This was their way to discover more about the city they lived in. This is a good month to emerge from your cocoon, go out and explore your surroundings. There’s no telling what you might discover! Be spontaneous, accept invitations, fill in your dance card, check out all the holiday decorations, get to know the neighbors. Do something spontaneous and different! This color blocked map pillow will be just the inspiration you need to get you started.
Sagittarius | November 22 – December 21
The past year has been pretty challenging for many, but it’s also been exciting as all sorts of opportunities and avenues of exploration opened up. If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to make a commitment to one particular path, and figure out how you can make that particular goal sustainable. Be willing to look outside the box, and do things differently. But most of all, believe. That faith in yourself will take you far, and this is just the pillow to support you on your quest.
Capricorn | December 22 – January 19
Hold on tight, Capricorn! With a Solar Eclipse on December 26, your world is about to get that much larger. This throw pillow is just one small symbol of what is about to unfold over the year ahead. No doubt you’ve been working hard to reinvent your life for some time now. If you are willing to explore the new opportunities that are emerging this month, there’s no telling where this will all lead! There is a whole world out there that is just waiting to be explored.
Aquarius | January 20 – February 18
Thanks to the Solar Eclipse on December 26 combined with an innovative Jupiter/Uranus trine, this month may just bring you the escape hatch you’ve been waiting for. Freedom, however, is also a state of mind. So for Aquarius, this is also about acceptance, forgiveness and making peace with the past. You might want to ask yourself: what are you holding on to that is causing you more harm than good? Time to slough that all off, and reach for the stars. An adventure awaits if you are willing to take the leap.
Pisces | February 19 – March 20
Now that Jupiter is entering Capricorn, a new and better vision for the future is trying to unfold. Many a Pisces will be asking themselves: What is next on the horizon? Where am I going to go from here? Be willing to look outside the box, and open to the possibility that new and exciting things can indeed happen. There’s no telling where that can take you! Dare to explore the vast and almost magical reaches of the possible.
