Every day I try to imagine what it's like to live without obstacles. Like running through the woods without having to fear that you’ll stumble on dead twigs or without having to make life-threatening decisions on which flower you can eat. What if everything runs fast and smoothly regardless of the option you pick? Does that sound fun to you? Or boring?
This week we’re going to meet another New Moon. This time in Aquarius, on the 27th right before the Chinese Lunar New Year. It’s a celebratory day if you know how not to make a mess. The New Moon in Aquarius brings a new wave of surprises, life-changing events, and a rush of ideas. It’s like learning to sail for the first time, excited, but a bit anxious. You have to be the captain of your ship to achieve a stable point. Understand when to make a difficult decision, when to make friends, and when to deviate from your routine. Step aside from your life for once and be a third party observer. You might need to take a leap of faith.
Not to worry, Mars in Aries will root for you starting from 29th January 2017 to fulfill your thirst for a spontaneous action. When Mars comes back to Aries, its designated residence, the force of ambition and strong will is going to pervade in the air. It’s so obvious you can almost smell it like a freshly brewed coffee. Ah, the smell of Monday morning.
As New Moon in Aquarius brings crazy new ideas, Mars in Aries will be your biggest cheerleader, making you feel as if anything is possible. Do you feel like studying abroad? Maybe you can start applying to uni next week! Or even the smallest ideas like decorating your space with new marble wallpaper is worth a shot. As long as you don’t feel like robbing a bank, I guess everything is going to be okay.
“It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me. And I’m feeling good.” -Nina Simone
This week we are exploring our options, moving full throttle ahead while keeping our hands firmly on the steering wheel. Unlike last week where tiptoeing is your only option, now is not the time to be too careful, especially when everything around you is moving too fast. You have to catch any moment as quick as a fox while snipping the negative vibe around you in a snap. Don’t let petty and jealous frenemies put you down for having bizarre ideas and life plans. Better snip them off now so you can find another like-minded company to go through this journey with you.
Most importantly, buckle your seatbelt and get ready for a Fun (with capital F) ride!
Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Five of Cups (Disappointment)
Not all glitters are gold. But if you don't need actual gold, it doesn't matter which one is which, right? This week is the best time to sort out your priority. Have you been pushing yourself too hard to achieve an unattainable standard? There's nothing wrong with being the second best, btw, if being the first causes you too much stress. But if the problem is that your lover doesn't love you as much as they love another person, maybe they are just not worth your time. Remember, Aquarius. You don't have to be gold if you can be glitter, silver, copper, or even rose gold! You can always shine in your own way, and be happy in your own skin.

Reflection - Lea Salonga (Ost. Mulan)
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
I'm glad to see that you won't back down this week, Pisces. Everything happens for a reason, and the dreamy you has always believed this. Now is the time to use that optimism and put it to something good. Do you have anything that you always want to do but were always too afraid to do? At least for this week, care to give it a try?
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Something bothers you, and you want to get to the bottom of it. A part of you want to take full control, but you know it's not going to do you any good. Have you ever heard that giving up doesn't mean losing? I think that will apply to your decision-making process this week. Try to lay low, for now, Aries, but stay alert like a lion watching its prey.
Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)
The Hanged Man
One thing for sure, Taurus, every path you choose, every decision you make, is not for nothing. They are a string of work of your subconscious. If you're wondering how certain things happen to you, look back again. What lead you to this spot? I'm sure you know the answer to everything. Don't worry, just follow the cookie crumble tonight.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Knight of Cups
It seems like you're having a difficulty figuring out what you want, especially when you can do EVERYTHING without any problem. As an air sign, you are known for your breadth of talent and interest. A suggestion: maybe pick something that is of the highest importance to you? At least a sense of responsibility will help to curb your qualm.
Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22)
Two of Disks - Change
At last, you're no longer scared of someone new. By opening yourself to another person, you can see a fresh new perspective changing your ever-stubborn mindset. The best life experience often comes from stories. Those are the things that we should be grateful about because we can "live" it without actually enduring it.
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Ace of Wands
Sometimes when you see another person walking behind you, you may sense that that they’re up to no good. Well, this week, your senses are appropriate, Leo. Any uncomfortable feeling you have about someone or something serves to protect you. Don't be afraid to find out what it means, even though that may cost you something.
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Two of Cups - Love
You're in luck this week, Virgo. You will find something for your heart to set on: activity, object, place, person, a purpose. A nurturing Virgo is a healthy Virgo, and there's nothing that will make you happier than finding something to fight for. However, don't let it blind you from taking care of yourself. You are worth a bit of pampering once in a while.
Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)
Ace of Disks
Understand that not everything has a happy ending, Libra, so think of the worst-case scenario whenever you plan something for yourself. Right now you have a lot of ideas on how to manage your life, but you're worried about being overwhelmed too. So what if you can't keep your promises to yourself? Come on, let's relax and slack off for a while.
Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Queen of Wands
Wondering what it's going to feel like to look the other way? Or to choose another option in your love/career? This week you will get a taste of it, but don't hope too much. Stability is what you need, but a dull routine can bore you to death. At least by taking a short break (or perhaps breaking the rule), this week you can finally appreciate that routine better.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
Queen of Swords
If you don't feel like doing anything at all, maybe you shouldn't. Sometimes even the fastest runner like you (yup Sagi people are always changing, always ambitious) gets tired of running. Settle down, and be happy with your progress for now. Don't wish for anything exciting yet, because you may lose what you have at the moment.
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Princess of Disks
One failed attempt does not determine your success or your worth, Capricorn. Don't be discouraged. Everything's going to be okay! Just because they don't message you back, (they’re probably busy anyway) it doesn't mean you can't try again. Stay persistent and do what you do best until you fail more than thrice. Give up not, try more yes.
