Aquarius (January 21- February 18)




The influence of the planets is saying that this month will be rather slow and you will lose some of your ambition. However, this only means that you should try harder to keep your head held high. To add on, this month is a prime time for encountering new romantic relationships, but some may be a trap so keep an eye out for toxic people. All in all, this month can be utilized for relaxation and, in general, keeping your spirits positive.

Pisces (February 19- March 20)





This is your month, Pisces! During January, you will have a flow of positive energy that can be utilized in your work. Whether it be writing an essay or contributing to a Hills club, your ambitions to work will be on fire. Others will notice your enthusiasm and effort which will attract many people, possibly even a romantic relationship. In general, you will be acknowledged for your hard work, but do not let that get to your head, just keep doing you.

Aries (March 21- April 19)





January is going to bring you many experiences mainly regarding your academic life.

One piece of advice that you will need this month is to simply relax because you will be caught in some stress that might feel overwhelming.

You can use this to your advantage by joining clubs such as the debate club considering the stars are saying that you will be very vocal this month.

Lastly, January will be a time for you to pursue some new goals because they will all be within arms reach.

Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)





January offers you a time to acknowledge reality by making some important decisions, especially academic wise. If you were planning on possibly switching out of a class that you feel is too hard, just remember that you may just have to work harder. While making some tough decisions, be mindful of how logical you are being because every move you make can impact how things turn out. Other than that this month will be very peaceful and you will be spending a lot of time with your partner, friends, or family. It is in these moments that you will be your best self.

Capricorn (December 22- January 20)





Dear Capricorns, this month will be a time to focus on some long-term goals such as studying harder for tests or working harder in general.

Along with this, you will have a positive aura, or Hills Pride, that will spread to everyone.
