You can finally get your big break and that’s totally exciting! That is, of course, if you keep yourself motivated to take on every challenge that comes your way.
Do everything with grace. Be realistic about your expectations, but do not get discouraged when reality becomes less than your ideal. Take things one step at a time and you’re going to have it all. Trust in your abilities, and remember that there are people who have your back. Don’t forget to balance hard work with time with those you love, too.

It’s time for a transformation, little Pisces! 2017 has been somewhat of a challenge for you, but this year, you are in the right position to manifest your dreams. You just need to be focused as it will require a lot of hard work and patience to get you started. This year will also bring new opportunities for you to find love–and you might come close to finding something you’d really want to pursue. So, believe in the magic, little fish. It’s going to be everywhere.
You’re going to need that extra push to keep going. Don’t be discouraged if progress is slow. Believe in the power of positivity! Coupled with presence of mind, you are truly going to make magic.
To help you get that extra push:
- Sell: Your bed. You’ve maybe worn it out and you’ve gotten too comfortable with it.
- Buy: A new bed. Explore new territories–maybe even with someone new!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Letting go is hard isn’t it, Aries child? You’ve learned that a lot this past year. You’ve been met with the choice to work at something you’ve already started, or to let go of something that might not be working. But you know how amazing you are, right? So keep in mind that whatever you choose to do from here on out, you can achieve beautifully as long as you keep your head up high.
Stay optimistic. If there are things to let go of, let them go with a promise to yourself that you can try again. Nobody but yourself can tell you what you can or can’t do — so be your own best cheerleader. So much awaits for you out there.
To help you stay optimistic:
- Sell: Stuff that remind you of the past. You know why.
- Buy: A film camera. You have so many precious moments ahead of you — make ’em count!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You’re enjoying the changes in your life that you’ve always wanted. Are you ready for the new challenges that will come your way given this brand new disposition? Why yes, of course! Trust that with the right amount of independence and teamwork with others or with a partner, you can achieve a great many things. But you have to make it clear to others that you value both.
By meeting eye to eye with others, and by taking care of yourself mentally and physically, you can achieve fulfilment. Keep everything in moderation, even your spending habits, or any other unhealthy habit you might have. Don’t go back to your old ways, you’re making so much progress already!
To help you keep healthy:
- Sell: Your deep frying machine. It’s time for healthier alternatives from frying!
- Buy: A fitbit. To keep with your progress, and to motivate you even further!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Oh dearest, Gemini! What has been on your mind lately? Is it that you crave for the bigger picture? A deeper understanding of your purpose? Well, understandably so. In the last years, you’ve accomplished so much and it’s good to wonder where it’s all headed. But–you’re going to want to reflect deeply on what makes you happy, because you know how it’s not a destination, but like it’s been said many times before, a journey. So keep your mind and body healthy. Have a goal but don’t forget to smell the flowers.
Align your bigger goals and purpose to your everyday tasks. When you feel lost, remember that you are only human–so take some time to laugh and be easy on yourself. Even if achieving greater things takes time, splitting it into smaller, more digestible tasks makes it easier to find pleasure in the things that you do.
To stay grounded:
- Sell: Your preloved shoes. You’ve been walking in them for too long.
- Buy: A card game or a board game. Invite your friends over for a few laughs every now and then.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Love and relationships will be a big thing for you in 2018, baby crab! You’re treading unfamiliar territories of letting yourself be vulnerable and fully trusting another person with the way that you feel, and the things that you need from them. This is your chance to be more honest with yourself so you can be honest with your partner, too. Think about what you want to achieve personally. Admit to yourself that these are what you need help with in order to work harmoniously with someone else.
Relationships are hard work. It requires a lot of effort, patience, compromise, and respect. But this is an opportunity to become a better person, too! Through another person, you learn how to coexist and create a safe space together.
To help achieve harmony with another:
- Sell: Your one-player video games. Trade them for multiplayer games with your partner!
- Buy: A bigger blanket. For when you need to cozy it up and spend quality time together.
Leo (July 23- August 22)
In 2018, Leo babes, ask yourself what you really want. Are you working towards it yet? You might be feeling like you’ve done a lot of great things in your career and in your personal life, but you are still lacking that special project that will shake things up and change you. Once you determine what it is, hard work and perseverance will help you achieve it. It will yield to amazing results once you give yourself a direction to follow, given that you already have so much potential.
Have faith that things will work out once you set your heart to it. Decide on a path and stay on track by working diligently. You’re a lion and you are set to do amazing things! So roar!

You possess admirable traits, Virgo bes, that’s why people are naturally drawn to your leadership and influence. This year, these will definitely show in the work that you do. You will succeed in many fronts of your life and your horizons will expand further. But do be careful about the dynamics that you have with other people. It might be easy for you to miss the small details that make up your success and others can interpret this as you being too engrossed in your own and only your own success.
Stay humble. In your journey to accomplish things, do not forget that you are where you are because of the people who back you up. Learn to show a better appreciation for others, and there will be less roadblocks along the way.
To help you stay humble:

And that includes a lot of new opportunities to earn, advance your career, and take steps towards a greater sense of agency and independence. At some points, you might feel like this can get too much for you. You might start to feel like you owe time and attention to the people at home, and this can cause you to stress out about not finding the right balance between your professional and personal life.
But don’t worry. You’re good at this. Take it as an opportunity to learn and grow into the beautiful flower that you are. Forgive yourself for not getting it right all the time. Learn to dance with life: sometimes slow, sometimes fast, but beautiful nonetheless.
To help you achieve balance:

You’re venturing into new territories in 2018, Scorpio friend! Something you might have considered as just a hobby will prove to be something you can earn from. The timing is right to explore this, there will be plenty of opportunities for you to do so. But do note that the decisions that you’ll be making this year will have lasting effects for you in the future. So choose well!
As you redefine your values and your priorities, remember to seize the opportunities for improvement that come your way.

Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)
Taking care of yourself and your need for independence will be your focus this year. Identify the things that you want and take more responsibility for your own happiness. You already know this, dear Sagittarius baby, but maybe you’d need to be reminded every now and then when you feel like people around you start to demand things from you. You might think you’re spreading yourself too thinly. But by focusing on your own objectives, you’d feel a better sense of accomplishment and more able to help those around you.
Focus on yourself. Take the time to ensure your own health and your own happiness so that it spills over to your relationships as well.
To help you achieve focus:
- Sell: Your extra phone. Take some time off of people and learn new skills.
- Buy: A yoga mat. Yoga keeps you feeling energized, focused, and present to yourself.
Good luck with the new year, OLXers!
