This is your year to be bold, fearless, and powerful. You have all the tools you need to be a strong woman, but you might need a little direction. Luckily, we’ve got your back. We’ve determined the one thing that should be at the top of your to-do list based on your Zodiac sign so you can be the most badass version of you.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
The partial lunar eclipse with Pluto in July in your sign may bring intense emotions and compulsive behavior. You can channel this in an empowering way: call someone out who is disrespecting you or harassing someone else. Badass women don’t let others walk all over them.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th)
Jupiter, the planet of abundance, moves through your friendship sector until December 2, so use this year to reach out to your friends. The most successful women have a powerful support network, so whether it’s a regular brunch routine with your girl squad or being there when someone’s feeling down, let your friends know how important they are to you.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
Pisces has a tendency to listen too much to other people, even the haters. This will be especially noticeable on January 13, June 16, and again on September 21 when Jupiter squares off with nebulous Neptune in your sign. Being open to others is one of your strengths, but know when to block out noise you don’t need from toxic people.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
As a strong-willed fire sign, you’ll feel a cosmic boost when your ruling planet Mars enters Aries in January. Let that energy fuel you as you become the boss lady you’ve always wanted to be. Take a smart risk this year –– ask for a raise, travel somewhere new, or even take the plunge in a new relationship.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
Your grit and determination last year may bring rewards in the new year, but at a cost. When was the last time you devoted to self-care? When Mars enters your sign in February, he’ll urge you to start looking at your own interests. After all, you can be generous without being a martyr.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th)
Badass women invest in themselves without apology. When Jupiter, the planet of wealth and abundance, squares with Neptune thrice this year, Gemini will understand her wealth. Whether it’s a new haircut, a firmer handshake, fitted clothes, or your redesigned schedule, taking pride in what defines you is an important step to becoming a true classy lady.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
As chaotic Uranus finally moves past your sign, you’ll be able to see your boundaries more clearly. Once you establish these, let others know them, too. You don’t have to accommodate the loudest voice in the room to be respectful. When you assert your expectations, the people in your life will learn to honor them.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)
You don’t need validation from other people to be a strong woman. With a new moon near your birthday on July 31, your vision will be clear –– and uniquely yours. Have confidence with your own perspective and trust your gut.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)
A February full moon in Virgo will illuminate the toxicity in some of your relationships. As a people-pleaser, you’ve humored people with their petty complaints. This year, ignore the drama that wastes your time. You have more important things to do in the new year.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
The Jupiter-Uranus trine in the second half of the year will spark your creative energy. Maybe you’ll feel inspired to dress differently or rearrange your workspace. If you feel the urge to be quirky, embrace it. You never know where it may take you.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st)
When Uranus, the planet of instability, conjuncts with Venus, you’ll need to reevaluate your relationships. Have you been changing who you are to mollify your romance? Stay true to your identity and your needs this year. Just because your partner expects you to enjoy things that he likes doesn’t mean you have to do so.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st)
2018 took a lot out of you, but if there’s one thing that defines a strong woman, it’s how she picks herself up again. Fortunately, abundant Jupiter enters your sign in 2019, showering you with cosmic luck. Knowing that the worst is behind you, don’t you think you can try again?
