8 Mind-Clearing and Productive Crystals to Keep at Your Work Desk

Whether you’re an entrepreneur starting up your dream business or have been continually successful, keeping crystals at your desk can make sure both your mind and to-do lists are clear.

Many of us are aware that crystals can help with productivity and cleansing one’s thoughts. But crystals are masters at a variety of work challenges from self-doubt, feelings of failure, lack of inspiration—even the foibles of unpleasant coworkers can be fixed with a little crystal guidance!

Here are eight crystals for your best work life yet.

Rose Quartz

Best for: Self-confidence

For those who never seem to feel good enough, rose quartz is a perfect answer for your problem with negative talk. Feeling nervous about a presentation? Can’t seem to shake self-doubt when preparing to ask something of your boss? This gentle, reassuring, self-love crystal will open up your heart chakra in order to give you the confidence you need to take on anything.

Is negative self-talk an issue for you? Did a conversation with your manger leave you with feelings of self-doubt that you’re just unable to shake? Take a short break with a quick rose quartz ritual. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and try a metta (loving kindness) meditation, if possible. The crystal of love and self-love will help open up your heart chakra to heal you.

How to use it: When you’re feeling antsy, take a short break with a quick rose quartz ritual. Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and try a metta meditation (loving kindness meditation). In your head or out loud, repeat phrases you would like to instill in your heart such as, “May I be confident. May I be strong. May I be happy. May I be peaceful and at ease.” Repeat until you feel calmer (and ready to take on anything!).

Black Tourmaline

Best for: Protection against EMF exposure; protection against negative coworkers

If you only keep one crystal at your desk, let it be black tourmaline: the black shining armor of the crystal world. This crystal shields against electromagnetic radiation fields (EMFs) that are emitted from devices such as computers and cell phones. Though the health risks posed by EMFs is inconclusive, a few theories suggest these rays can cause you to feel stress, fatigue, and anxiety—all the feelings that can hinder your productivity at work.

Black tourmaline also protects you from the negative energy of other people—like that coworker who won’t stop coming up to your desk, or that family member who doesn’t understand why you can’t answer their mid-day texts.

How to use it: Keep it close when a particularly aggravating situation comes up. For instance, if your coworker approaches your desk (once again), take hold of the tourmaline in your hand. If your mom texts you for the third time in a row, turn your phone face down and place the tourmaline on top.

Citrine

Best for: a creativity boost; inspiration

citrine

You don’t have to keep banging your head against the wall when faced with an issue or dead-end project. Citrine can help open your third eye and give your imagination an open channel to receive out-of-the-box thoughts. For that reason, this crystal is especially useful for people who work in creative fields.

How to use it: Hold the crystal and set your intentions. Take a deep breath. Journal your goals or write out a quick to-do list. Then, get ready for it all to come to fruition. Do this daily or weekly—it really depends on how fast you want things to happen!

Smoky Quartz

Best for: Concentration

Is there too much going on in your head? Is your productivity waning? Feeling overwhelmed or distracted by life at home? A smoky quartz can help you to focus on the task at hand. By decreasing stress, anxiety, and other toxic cloud that can take over your thoughts, it can help your mind restore itself to a more grounded state.

How to use it: When you’re feeling overwhelmed, hold your smoky quartz, close your eyes, and breathe deeply until you feel settled once again. 

Selenite

Best for: Energy cleanse; positivity; charging other crystals

As one of the most powerful crystals out there, selenite can be used to cleanse energy and provide positive vibes. It’s particularly useful in a large office or coworking space where there are a lot of energies around.

This crystal is also especially important for entrepreneurs, as it keeps the good juju going when you’re starting something new. Pro tip: Combine it with citrine to clear any blockages related to finance.

How to use it: A selenite charging plate is also a useful tool to keep your other crystals charged.

Green Aventurine

Best for: Money; promotions; success at work

green aventurine

Green aventurine is a beautiful stone that helps manifest abundance of all kinds. While it is often advertised as a money stone, it doesn’t just help in the cash department (although it’s perfect for money abundance if that’s what you’re looking for!). Green aventurine can also help bring many types of abundance into your work life. For instance, it could help you receive a promotion, create new partnerships, or see to it that you get acknowledgement at work.

How to use it: Write down a goal around abundance on a piece of paper. What do you want to see happen? Fold that piece of paper up and place your aventurine on top. On your desk it’ll serve as a daily reminder to quietly meditate no receiving your goal.

Tiger’s Eye

Best for: Calming those jitters 

https://www.instagram.com/p/CCoNCxzHb_e/

Are you nervous for a presentation? Wondering how you are going to get up there and do your best in front of everyone? Channeling the “eye of the tiger” has never been easier with this stone. Think of tiger’s eye as the crystal version of your own personal cheerleader.

How to use it: While you can keep a larger stone on your desk for everyday nerves, a small tumble stone for your pocket is perfect for you to take into meetings.  in your pocket can also get the job done.

Amazonite

Best for: Healing; communication with others

https://www.instagram.com/p/B-zwUuFg8TP/

Connected to the heart and throat chakras, it’s no wonder why this crystal touches our most personal and communicative issues. For days when you’re simply maxed out and you desperately need to soothe your body, mind, and spirit, amazonite is your solution. For days when you need to have sensitive discussions with coworkers, amazonite is the best to have by your side.

How to use it: Hold it close a couple minutes before a meeting or when you’re feeling overwhelmed. You should find that your energy re-balances, leaving you open and free to new possibilities.

5 Crystals to Help You Win at Work

5 Crystals to Help You Win at Work

5 Crystals to Help You Win at Work

A few months ago, I found myself completely overwhelmed with a writing project I’d agreed to take on. Following through would mean accomplishing a huge personal goal, but when I sat down in front of my computer, I couldn’t focus, and I was riddled with anxiety and self-doubt. I was looking for a way to recenter my energy and get the creative juices flowing—and I knew my usual strategy (guzzling half a pot of dark roast and hoping for the best) wasn’t going to work this time.

Enter: crystal medicine

I’ve used crystals to help me get over a breakup and for insomnia, but I’ve never incorporated them into my creative process. But, “there are so many stones that you can use for work space,” says Courtney Taylor, a psychic clairvoyant and energy healer who frequently prescribes crystals to her clients.

Read This Now: Crystal Cleansing 101: Everything You Need to Know

After speaking with Taylor, I was prescribed two different crystals. I started wearing them daily. While I didn’t notice a dramatic change initially, feeling them against my skin was a reminder to focus my energy on the task at hand. A week into wearing the stones, I started to notice a shift in my energy and more opportunities flowing my way.

Read This Now: The Most Powerful Crystals for Your Zodiac Sign

As Taylor explains, within the crystal universe there are “manifestation stones” that will help you get what you want. So, whether you’re hoping to make a move up the corporate ladder, tap into your inner confidence or simply manifest more abundance in your life, here are a few crystals to try.

Citrine

“This is always the first stone I give people when they’re wanting to change jobs, get a promotion or get more money,” says Taylor. In my case, wearing citrine has helped me shift my energy around money from a place of lack to a more positive space. Taylor says this is common. “It is a growth stone. It’s a manifestation stone. It’s an abundance stone. It’s really good to help purify and center you. It also helps identify which areas you need to work on. It will get there. It carries through.”

Facing difficult job challenges? Let the Tarot help…

Aventurine

Known for its gorgeous green hue, aventurine is another manifestation stone. If your current work situation is getting you down or you find negative self-talk is hurting your confidence, wearing some aventurine can help. As Taylor explains, “aventurine works more on the emotional side and keeps us in a place where we’re optimistic. It’s a healing stone and very gentle. It also creates balance.” Because aventurine is connected to the solar plexus, it can also help boost our confidence and self-esteem.

Taylor says that it’s especially great for work because, “it also helps keep us in a positive energy space while trusting what’s going to come.” So, if you’re angling for a promotion or your next big gig, “it’s a stone that keeps you out of your negative thought patterns.”

Taylor says it also pairs really well with citrine, “because you’re manifesting but you’re also being realistic.”

Pyrite

Also known as “fool’s gold,” this ultra sparkly stone is perfect for those times when you want to keep your mind clear and your eyes on the prize. “This is really good at giving you clarity, optimism. It has a very bright energy and is very flashy so it gives you the feeling of ‘I can do anything, I can take on anything,’” says Taylor. However, because Pyrite tends to come in a larger cluster, “this is one that I don’t recommend you wear but instead keep in the house.”

See the wisest next steps you should take on your career path…

Jade

Looking to get that raise or double your business profits? Jade is your lucky charm. Taylor says, “this one is all about money.” While jade will definitely help you manifest more money in your life, it’s connected to your heart chakra which means it will also help keep you, “from holding yourself back and delaying living up to your full potential,” she says. A gentle, pick me up stone; jade will remind you good things are coming into your life.

Iolite

Want to kickstart the creative process? Just add Iolite. This stone is connected to the seven laws of attraction and really powerful when it comes to tapping into your imagination and bringing visions to life. “It helps get you into a very visionary state. I love this one for people who are in the arts and media—anyone who is in a creative space, Iolite helps bring you to that creative space,” says Taylor.

Iolite is also connected to your third eye. Because of this, it’s a helpful crystal for the manifestation process because it allows you to take ideas and project them forward. It’s a good stone to use when you’re building your own intuition. As Taylor explains, this is the perfect stone to use when you want to send a message to the universe that, “I want things and I’m going to get them.”

As Taylor reminds us, “many of these stones are manifestation stones for the career space. They will help you set your desires, manifest money and project forward to get there.” However, because crystals are a form of energy medicine, people react differently to every stone. “I like giving different ones because our body gets used to wearing certain stones and the energy needs to be changed up every now and then,” says Taylor. Start by experimenting with one or two stones and go from there.

Your Horoscope for Monday October 16: To Manifest What You Want, You First Have to Dream

Whatever you did this weekend (and we know it was wild, Scorpios!) today is the day to get everything back on track and where it should be. With the moon in detail-oriented Virgo, all signs are feeling a surge of productivity to get sh*t done,  making today pretty painless, as far as a Monday goes. No wild moves—today is slow, steady, productive, and one of those days you can get ahead, which is so key, especially as the passionate, intense vibes of Scorpio, which moves into the sun next week, are already being felt by certain Zodiac signs this week. For now, shore things up, and know that things will get wild, crazy, and fun in the future.

You get lucky in October. Find out more with your premium October horoscope!.

Aries Daily Horoscope
While everyone around you is talking about their productivity hacks, you may feel like you’re missing out, or like you need to add more order to your life. Nope! You do you, Archers! Today, you’re going to cover a lot of ground simply by your charm, but trying to stick to a schedule or be someone you’re not will only backfire. Instead of focusing on your weaknesses, focus on amplifying your strengths. 

Taurus Daily Horoscope     
Someone from the past is dragging you down today, Bulls. It may not be anything that person is actually doing—no accusations, please!—but the old energy of a past partnership, job, or relationship is getting in the way of the moves you want to make today. Your course of action? Let it go. On a piece of paper, write down the person’s name in pencil, write yours in ink, and then put the paper in a safe place—it’s not harmful, you’re just reminding the universe that you need to focus your energy on you. 

Gemini Daily Horoscope      
You want something new, right, Gemini? You’re feeling restless and uncertain about the things going on in your life. A big change is in the horizon, but for today, the stirrings you feel are simply a sign that when change comes, although it will be sad, you’ll be ready. For now, shore up your connections to friends and family. Your network is everything.

Cancer Daily Horoscope
With responsible Saturn in your sector of routine and the sun in your home sector, today’s a day to tune into what your home needs. For you, your home is your heart, and if you’ve been neglecting it for awhile because of your schedule, you’re going to feel it. Cleaning up and restoring order may seem like a small task, but it’ll do wonders for your mood. 

What color is your aura, and where is it leading you? Ask the Chakra Tarot….
 

Leo Daily Horoscope
You’re both in love with and conflicted by your routine today, Lions. On one hand, you’re on top right now, with respect and accolades coming your way. On the other hand, you’re feeling constrained by rules and expectations. The result: A lot of frustration. For today, while you may be tempted to make major changes, consider the good in routine. There’s a lot of comfort to it, and the more you lean in, the more satisfied you’ll feel.  

Virgo Daily Horoscope
With the moon in your sign, you’re feeling a lot more emotional turmoil than other signs, Virgo. While it’s a good thing to pay attention to your emotional needs, don’t allow them in the driver’s seat today, as that could be a distraction. Practical and cool—the Virgo way—is the best way to sail through the day and emerge on top.

Need an instant answer to a tough question? This Tarot deck has it.

 
Libra Daily Horoscope
Libra is all about playing well with others, but today, you just may not be feeling it. Whether it’s a friend or colleague, you’re butting heads and feeling frustrated. Take a step back. Pushing buttons won’t solve the issue, and some space for both of you will give you the best perspective to tackle the issue later. 

Scorpio Daily Horoscope
You’re all about forging ahead and making plans today, Scorpio, but some niggling issues in the back of your brain are holding you back. They won’t go away without action, so taking the time to address them this week will pay off so you have a free and clear birthday month to look forward to!

Sagittarius Daily Horoscope
A Sun-Saturn connection gives you the energy and concentration you need to get things done today, Sags—or would if your phone didn’t keep blowing up with texts. Some personal drama, likely only tangential to you, is unfolding, and you’re getting sucked into it. To avoid it being even more of a time suck, repeat after us: I’m busy right now. Will handle this tomorrow. Seriously, the more you stay focused on your own things, the better you’ll be. 

Capricorn Daily Horoscope
Today is a golden day for work, and Caps are working it. Your reputation has preceded you, and people are coming from all over asking for advice, and may even be feeling you out for a job lead. Bask in the adoration, but know you don’t have to many any concrete next steps just yet.

Where is your love life headed? Get two valuable perspectives.
 

Aquarius Daily Horoscope 
You had a creative, strong weekend and the trend continues today. You may find yourself thinking about a passion project you would love to take on, or start seriously thinking about starting a business. Enjoy allowing your mind to run with this idea—this week is a great one to actually get your dreams off the ground!

Pisces Daily Horoscope
Today is a great day to have that scary conversation with a boss or coworker. Your chart is in a spot where the universe is admiring you, and bringing up a difficult question or topic will only make you seem more responsible and on top of things. Your instincts are totally on track today, Pisces: Follow them to see where they lead.

Your Weekly Horoscope for October 15 to 22: Go Deep. No, Deeper.

Your Weekly Horoscope for October 15 to 22: Go Deep. No, Deeper.

By Horoscope.com

On October 15, 2017

In Aspect, Relationship, Spirit

Your Weekly Horoscope for October 15 to 22: Go Deep. No, Deeper.

The stars bring huge changes in the month ahead. Get the full scoop with your premium October horoscope!

Ready to go deep? This is the week to do it.The stars are asking you to turn inward, do some introspection, and sort out what you want. Next week, the sun moves into moody, intense Scorpio, signifying a deeper, richer, more passionate phase in your life. You’re likely to feel rumblings of this change in the week ahead, and don’t be surprised if encounters are more passionate than usual. This isn’t a bad thing. Passion drives change. The stars are asking you this week to tune in and honor your emotions—the more you feel, the more you manifest change. Here, what else to look forward to (and watch out for) this week!

Aries Weekly Horoscope 
Expansive Jupiter is in your sector of transformation, and change not only seems possible, it seems inspiring. This is a great week to consider a physical shift—whether it’s a new haircut or trying a new look, you’ll be surprised by how the new look cranks up your confidence. But you’re also thinking longterm change—and Rams are always ready to take a leap, but the stars say that you’ve got time. Hold your horses, and now that if the move is right, it’ll still be right a week, a month, or even a year from now. Jupiter stays in this sector until next November, so you’ve got time. Baby steps will still get you where you want to be—promise. 

Taurus Weekly Horoscope    
An aspect in your relationship sector has love, like and everything in between on your radar this week, Bulls. Here’s the thing: In order to get what you want (and you know what that is) you’ve got to simultaneously be honest and tactful. It’s all about walking in the other person’s shoes. What do they want? And how can you partner with each other’s desires so everyone is happy? Meanwhile, expanding your social circle could be a smart move this week—you’ve been pretty driven on one goal in the past few weeks, but taking a bigger picture focus on your life (and balance within it) will pay off. 

Is love in your stars?

Gemini Weekly Horoscope    
With frisky Venus in your leisure zone, romance is everywhere, and it is hot, hot, hot. In the next few days, the universe is giving you the gift of the moment—truly everything is where it should be. The only thing getting in the way is yourself. Stop thinking about the past and the future, and as much as possible, pay attention to the moment. Put your phone down or keep it home for the day. It’s all about connection, baby! And on that note, how deeply connected are you to you? With Mercury, your guide planet, about to enter Scorpio, it’s the ideal time to focus on a long dormant goal or plan. You got this! 

Cancer Weekly Horoscope
With sociable Venus in your home and family sector, Crabs are all about connecting this week. It’s a great week for turning inward and having long conversations about the meaning of life and love with BFFs. But any long and meandering conversation must be followed by a plan of action. Don’t get too caught up in talk. And on that note, get out of your shell a little more this week. Yes, Netflix and takeout are divine, but even more fun with a friend! Extending invites is key this week. 

Leo Weekly Horoscope
Optimistic Jupiter and chatty Mercury are in your home zone, and you’re all about shaking things up at the casa. Maybe it’s finding a new place, moving in with a new roomie or partner, or even considering buying a pad. But while lions are all about taking action, the cosmos say that examining all options are key. You may overlook an issue in your haste to make something happen. You’re also in the prime place to network. The word sounds daunting, but really, it’s just about striking up conversations—talk to that stranger! You won’t know where the connection will lead until you take that first step.

Virgo Weekly Horoscope 
Finances, fun? Maybe not, but this week, you’re finding all sorts of inspiration in your financial sector. Maybe you’re exploring a promotion, cranking up your side hustle, or making steps for obtaining a more secure financial future. Whatever it is, you’re feeling buoyed by possibility and are actually finding the more you know about your money, the more confident you feel in your power to make it. Virgo, you can sometimes be idealistic when it comes to cash flow, believing “everything will work out.” And for you, it usually does. But this week, you’re realizing that taking a detailed look at what you’ve got and what you want will only make you feel more flush. 

Libra Weekly Horoscope 
Lovely Venus (your planet) is in your sign, and you’re pretty unstoppable, Libra! Ride that wave. You’re naturally charming everyone who crosses your path, and are finding tasks to be more effortless than they’ve felt in a really long time. Don’t take this period for granted. Yes, go with the flow and enjoy (you’ve earned it!) but also know this is the prime time to make the moves you want to get the life you want. Set up that meeting. Make the first move to arrange a date. Bring up that hard conversation. The more you work this week, the more the week will give back to you. 

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope 
With lucky Jupiter in your sign, you’re feeling pretty unstoppable in the week gearing up to your birthday month, Scorpio! You’ve had a pessimistic streak these past few months, but now, you’re feeling some internal optimism. Overall, this attitude shift is helping you manifest latent desires and get things done. But here’s the thing: You can’t ignore your past, and issues will come back to haunt you. Addressing some past issues, insecurities, or concerns will only make you more unstoppable.

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope 
Sweet dreams, Sags! With Jupiter in a secluded sector of your chart, your subconscious is working overtime, giving you some pretty intense dreams that provide clues into what’s going on (and what you need to do) in your real life. Pay attention to those clues—they can give you a powerful and accurate road map for next steps you need to take. But don’t go 100% hermit. With the new moon in your social sector, make sure to go out, meet new people, and say yes to events you may not have in the past. As your dreams most likely have told you, you need a shakeup, and you’re going to get it by connecting to others. 

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope 
You are charming AF, Caps, thanks to lovely Venus. Work it! You tend to be serious and introspective, but this is a great week to give in to whimsy. Try something new. Say yes to a lunch away from your desk. Forget about your evening routine. The more you follow your gut and do what you want—not what your schedule dictates—the more doors will open up for you. The new moon on Thursday opens up a pretty key door, either for a new relationship, business opportunity, or social plan, but you’ve got to be open to it for it to manifest. If you seem like you’re too caught up in your daily to-do list, it just won’t happen.

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope 
The universe is asking you to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Are you ready? Optimistic Jupiter is driving your ambition, but you have to be realistic and know you may have a few overbooked days in your future. The good news: They won’t feel like a sacrifice. For now, this week is a prime time to make sure your personal care is on point—the healthier you feel, the better you’ll handle the challenges Jupiter will throw your way. It’s a great week to commit to trying the gym, eating healthier, or going to bed on time. (Need inspiration? Read The Perfect Workout for Your Zodiac Sign.)

Pisces Weekly Horoscope 
You’ve got major wanderlust, Pisces. Book that ticket! But before you go, ask yourself the key question: Are you running toward something you want or away from something you don’t? That key question will determine next steps and moves. Meanwhile, even if a ticket to a far-flung location isn’t in the cards, the universe is making it clear that it wants you to expand your horizons. Whether it’s taking a class, reading a book, or otherwise engaging with the world in a new way, doing so is essential for feeding your soul this week. Fish may be especially drawn to crystals this week, which can help manifest the goals and dreams you already have brewing.

When Jupiter Moves Into Scorpio, Every Sign Wins. Here’s Why.

Big news today! Jupiter entering Scorpio means your luck is about to change—for the better. Why? Jupiter, the planet that rules abundance, expansion, and growth, is known for turning everything that it touches into gold. From today until November 8 of 2018, we will experience massive collective healing, which will happen through the deepening of our closest relationships, seeking and exposing the truth, and laser-focusing on the task at hand. Scorpio is one of the most powerful signs, and it is precisely that power that Jupiter is gifting you. 

Every single sign in the zodiac can and will benefit from this aspect. But we are not going to lie, you will have to work for it. During the next thirteen months, remember that Jupiter wants you to win, but to receive its gifts, you most focus your energy and your intention on that specific area of your life to which Jupiter will be sending its fortunate vibes. Here, exactly how Jupiter will affect each sign.

The stars bring huge changes in the month ahead. Get the full scoop with your premium October horoscope!

Aries 
Not to worry, Rams. You are still the most important thing since this aspect will be encouraging you to explore the depths of your being. Now, more than ever, analyzing your subconscious mind, your feelings, and your emotions will be not only fun… but mind-blowing. Jupiter’s gift to you is getting to know yourself and developing a better understanding of your psyche and how it can help other areas of your life. Don’t be surprised if listening to your intuition starts paying off more than you could ever imagine. If you ever considered working with a coach or a guru to reach your fullest potential, consider this your signal.  

Taurus 
Scorpio is your opposite sign in the zodiac wheel. This means that this aspect will shake your relationship sector—in the best of ways. All your relationships will get an optimistic boost, including business and love connections. If you are already in a serious relationship, this could be the time you decide to take it to the next level or get proposed to. If you are single and looking, you might meet someone with real potential. And if your relationships have not been stellar lately, Jupiter’s got your back!    

Gemini 
Big news for your health, wellness, and lifestyle sector! If this sounds boring to you, think twice, because when you feel good, you look even better. It seems that during this transit, you will make better and healthier choices that will nurture your spirit but also your body. Partying could become boring and doing yoga-and-lunch with your buddies could be the part of your weekend you look forward to the most. Plus, all these feeling-good vibes might even end up flowing into other areas of your life; possibly your career sector. Think big and you will manifest accordingly.

Cancer 
Ready for some serious snuggling, Crabs? Your chart will be welcoming Jupiter’s lovely vibes in your romance and leisure sector. How lucky is that? Now, romance can come into your life in many different forms. Yes, you might meet someone if you are single and looking, or an existing relationship could deepen. But a different kind of love could also develop inside of you. This could be a hobby, sport, or new project. Pay special attention to what your emotions tell you during this one-year transit. What you find out through them will be beneficial and long-lasting.

Leo 
For outgoing Leos, home is where the most exciting things will happen. For the next thirteen months, you might have more and more reasons to stay in and chill. Your home sector will be lit up by the fiery energy of Jupiter, making it a stellar time to either remodel, move, or buy a home. This is all great news, right? Who doesn’t want a nice home? The one thing to watch out for is a tendency to go big. This is something that you already must watch out for, but because the energy of both, Jupiter and Scorpio, are also larger-than-life, make sure you are making the right decision before you pull the trigger.

Virgo 
Mercury-ruled Virgos will move with so much ease and grace during this period. You are a pro at communication, and Jupiter settling in this sector is exactly what you need right now. You will not only be able to express your ideas and thoughts more concisely, you can also boost your career options significantly; especially if you work in sales, publishing, and social media. It is very important to take advantage of the power that your words will have, Virgo. This is no time to be shy, let yourself sing and people will dance to your rhythm!

Libra 
Jupiter leaves your sign to enter the next one in the wheel. It has been quite a year for you, so you can’t really complain, can you? Something in your life went well, better than expected. Picture that but translated into your money and financial sector. If you are thinking of all the pretty things you can buy, cool, that’s fair and fine. Do keep in mind that investing (at least some of) this extra cash can really take off during the year ahead while you have all the celestial help you could get in this sector of your chart.  

     
Scorpio 
So, how does it feel to be the favorite, Scorpio?! You have come a LONG way, and you know what? You will be rewarded for it. For the past year or so, Jupiter was in your spiritual sector, taking you on a soul-searching journey of self-discovery. Now, you are ready to put into action all that you learned about yourself. Jupiter only enters your signs every twelve years, which means that there is no better time to make your deepest dreams and ambitions come true. Lucky coincidences, miracles, even more charm, and all kinds of resources are at your disposal… the question is: What will you do with them? Hint: Focusing on self-improvement and self-expression will direct Jupiter’s expansive energy exactly where you want it to be. Stay tuned!

Sagittarius 
Get ready for the ride of your life, Sags! Your ruling planet in the watery sign of transformation will (for real) shake your life. Your spiritual sector is now under focus with no-nonsense Scorpio making you take the deepest and most intense plunge yet. Suddenly, the globetrotter becomes a philosophical guru in a never-ending quest for self-improvement. In about a year, it might surprise you how much the people around you, your priorities, and yourself as a whole have changed. How exciting! During this cycle, however, do try to keep yourself in check as extreme Scorpio will be pushing you to the edge!

Capricorn Weekend Love Horoscope 
How does leaving work early and going to a happy hour, an art show or a museum night party sound, Caps? For you, this might not be the most comfortable of aspects. Jupiter will expand your social circle and will inject some energy into your social life. You are not the most social of signs, but this year, you will gain significant confidence in the way you interact with people. You might even be the first one to make a move. Very sweet! Plus, some of the new connections you make will become business associated, best friends, or even lovers or partners!

Aquarius Weekend Love Horoscope 
If it has been a rough ride for you when it comes to career and finances, things are surely going to get better for you. Your career and ambition sector will be hosting the benevolent energy of Jupiter. If you have been unemployed or a personal project isn’t picking up as fast as you expected, you could see results or even an offer before the year ends. And yes, you must work… hard. Not that you haven’t, the difference here is that it will become natural for you to share your talents with others, making it easier to put yourself out there and find the resources that were previously hidden.

Pisces  
If you have been considering going back to school, taking a sabbatical or just taking on a new hobby, you will love the treats that Jupiter has in store for you. By entering your learning, travel, and wisdom sector, it will expand your view of the world (possibly taking you on a trip to a faraway land), and therefore, the way you see life in general. Scorpio is a buddy of yours, making you one of the luckiest signs during this transit. Make it worth your time, Fish. Who knows who you might meet in the process!

Today’s Horoscope for Tuesday, October 3: A New Perspective for Every Sign

Today’s Horoscope for Tuesday, October 3: A New Perspective for Every Sign

By Horoscope.com

On October 3, 2017

In Aspect, Future, Spirit

Today’s Horoscope for Tuesday, October 3: A New Perspective for Every Sign

You get lucky in October. Find out more with your premium October horoscope!.

Later in the week, a full moon in Aries causes shakeups across every sign; and next week, Jupiter moves into Scorpio, creating a shift in your ambitions, goals, and relationships. Starting today, confusion may reign. Don’t be surprised if you get conflicting information from various people. Although it may be tempting to vent with friends, what you say behind someone’s back will get back to them today. (Better to tell it to your journal!) Here, what each sign should look out for today, Tuesday, October 3. 

Aries Daily Horoscope
Today, the moon is in nurturing Pisces. Although you tend to be all about tough love, the position of the moon ignites your sentimental side. Don’t let logic get in the way. The small steps you take to help others will make you feel better, promise. And while you’re usually all business, today is a really good day to prioritize the relationships you’ve got. After all, in the end, isn’t love all we have, Aries? 

Taurus Daily Horoscope   
Bulls may feel as if everything has been same-old these past few weeks, but trust that change is coming, via Jupiter’s transition to Scorpio. For now, find comfort in your everyday routine. Make plans, get your closet organized, and begin tackling just one of those projects you’ve put aside in recent months. Outside forces will shake things up in the next few days, so take advantage of the relative calm and create some external order in your life, Bulls!

Gemini Daily Horoscope      
As Venus trines Pluto, Gemini may be feeling extra amorous. Usually, you like the other person to take the lead, but why hold back? The confidence you have in your feelings is a turn-on, so let the person in your life see it. You may also find that your creativity is amplified—use it! Even taking five minutes to set up the perfect artsy Instagram shot will have a huge positive impact on your mood today. 

Cancer Daily Horoscope
Hey Crabs, you’re irresistible today, so use that extra charm and fire up Bumble, set up a date night with your boo, or just flirt with everyone who crosses your path. While you usually draw your energy from your internal reserves, this week has you mixing, mingling, and loving the outside world. Say yes to any invites that might come your way—you sometimes say “no” or “maybe” out of habit, but trust that for today and the rest of the week, you’ll meant to go out. Have fun! 

What color is your aura, and where is it leading you? Ask the Chakra Tarot….
 

Leo Daily Horoscope
As stylish Venus enters your second house, your index finger is getting the urge to click, click, click. But before you purchase a brand new fall wardrobe, pause and take stock of what you already have. While it’s not fun, today is a good day to do some general bookkeeping, so you know how much money you actually have. Once you set a spending budget, splurging will be soooo much more satisfying. Promise. 

Virgo Daily Horoscope
Lusty Mars is circling your sign, ready to settle down when you’ve decided who you want to focus all that amorous energy on. Attached Virgos will find that sex makes everything better this week, while single Virgos need to get in touch—literally—with their physicality. Not in a physical relationship? Even touching yourself in the shower will get you in touch with your sexual flow, which will make you pretty damn unstoppable today. 

Need an instant answer to a tough question? This Tarot deck has it.

 
Libra Daily Horoscope
You’re super fixated on what’s going on today/tomorrow/next year, but what if you let go a little? As flirtatious Venus flows through your house of fantasy, now’s the time to play what-if: For example, what if you skipped out on your plans for tonight and did something else? There are a lot of options around you today, Libra, but it’s up to you to be open to them and decide if you’re brave enough to follow through. 

Scorpio Daily Horoscope
Jupiter’s preparing to enter your sign next week, making you want to tie up loose ends. Perfect! Today is a day to hunker down and get things done. While you tend to enjoy the spotlight, taking some time to yourself isn’t a bad thing at all. Resist the urge to take the lead today—getting your busy work done will yield a bigger payoff, you’ll see. 

Learn about your animal sign with the wisdom of Chinese astrology.

 
Sagittarius Daily Horoscope
Sags are all about work today, and your uber-productive Monday mood carries over to today. Coworkers may make fun of your “all work and no play” attitude, but there will be plenty of time for chilling out and relaxing in the next few weeks. For now, it’s okay to be a little boring. You may not get a ton of sleep this week, but repeat after us: You got this! 

Capricorn Daily Horoscope
Today is a red letter day for love, as Venus urges Capricorns to stop playing by the rules and experiment a little. For one, who says a date night needs to be on a weekend? Take a chance, and follow through on your desires—you may be surprised at where (and who) they lead toward. 

Where is your love life headed? Get two valuable perspectives.
 

Aquarius Daily Horoscope 
The moon, which was in your sign until yesterday, pushed you to ask the big questions over the weekend. Now, your focus is purely practical—and you may find yourself having to get through a backlog of work. Today is all about getting things done, but don’t let those big questions totally disappear—take the time to meditate or write for five minutes in a journal, and a gem of enlightment will reveal itself to you.

Pisces Daily Horoscope
As the moon enters your sign, you’re feeling a profound need for connection on a deep level. You may find it not with the people in your day-to-day, but someone from your past, or someone you have yet to meet. You have a huge social circle, Pisces. Utilize it!

Get a map to your future, with a free psychic reading.

As Libra season begins, the planets urge you to take a leap forward—especially if you’ve been stalling. Last month, Practical, ambitious Virgo gave you the tools and knowledge you needed to take important steps. You may not have all the details worked out, you may be second guessing yourself, but trust that the planets and stars are telling you to make further moves now; balanced Libra will help you work out what they are in the days ahead. During the week, a new person, idea, of offer may appear enticing, but the stars encourage you to consider all options. Finally, look forward to the weekend! Your ambition is through the roof, and it may be wise to just this once set aside some time to do some work or invite coworkers to a party—your work life will have a powerful impact on your personal life in the upcoming weeks. 

Aries Weekly Horoscope 
Balanced Libra asks you to take a hard look at your relationship (or your pursuit of one). Has spending time with your favorite plus-one overtaken other parts of your life? If so, then take a step back and recalibrate. Take the week and find a pocket of time where you can do something solo—reconnecting with yourself can help you remember some essential truths about who you are. The week ahead can be especially confusing, with conflicting information coming at you in all directions. While you may feel like you have to act now, remember: Taking the time to consider a decision is a decision. 

Taurus Weekly Horoscope    
Feel that stirring energy rising from your chest to your stomach? That, Bulls, is your call to action! You’ve been tentative all summer, putting off plans, but now is the time to move, move, move. Change is scary, but think about it: What do you lose if you don’t take a risk? Right now, what you need is a dose of courage. How to find it: Hang out with friends who have your back and can remind you how awesome you are. Pump up your adrenaline with a trip to the gym. Listen to a Spotify playlist on repeat. Finally, stop thinking and just do it—once you do, you’ll be amazed at what’s on the other side of that fear.

Is love in your stars?

Gemini Weekly Horoscope    
Open your eyes, Gemini: The universe is trying to teach you a lesson, and it may not come in the format you would expect. Put your phone down, take your earbuds off, and listen to conversations around you this week. You’re likely feeling in between a few different decisions or choices, and part of the process in searching for clarity is picking up on subconscious clues whispered by the universe. While you’re ready to embrace something fresh and different, prudence in the upcoming days is essential. You’ve got time on your side, and a too-quick decision could come back to haunt you. 

Cancer Weekly Horoscope
Admit it, Crabs, you’ve been feeling a little stuck. Right now, your focus is on all the things that aren’t working in your life. First, take a step back and take stock of what is—whether it’s your great group of friends or your commitment to hitting the gym, balanced Libra is reminding you that a shift in perspective is essential in making lasting change. Second, the stars say that something could change in your work environment—but you have to lead the charge for it to happen. To begin, ask yourself what would make your work life more enjoyable. It may be a more simple answer than you think. And regardless of what you think, consider adding a plant to your workspace, if you can. Bringing some of the outdoors inside will do wonders for your mood. 

Leo Weekly Horoscope
This week, Lions are likely to meet someone who could have a profound impact on their life going forward. The trick is to actually figure out who that person is, and to do that, Lions are going to have to go deeper than they normally do. While Leo is adept at having surface-level conversations with a variety of strangers, the stars say that you may need some one-on-one time to figure out what lessons this person is trying to teach you. Finally, it’s time to rethink priorities. You’ve been burning the candle at both ends, but doing that forever is unrealistic and will only make you exhausted. Time to figure out what you don’t need to do in order to be happy,

Virgo Weekly Horoscope 
Expansive Jupiter and innovative Uranus intersect right in your financial sector. What this means: You’re ready to make money. Whether it’s starting up a business, cranking up your side hustle, or finding yourself getting bonuses at your job, the sky’s the limit. And while you’re feeling confident, don’t get cocky—and don’t spend anything until it’s safely in your bank account. Want to make even more? Suss out what, exactly, you’re working for. The more passionate you are about a goal, the more money you’ll make. Enjoy the abundance! 

Libra Weekly Horoscope 
Romantic possibilities swirl around you this week. Great news if you’re single; tricky if you’re attached. Your flirt game is on point, but if you’re not looking, someone may misunderstand your intentions. It’s also so important to be honest about what you want and what you’re looking for. While compliments can be addictive, they mean so much more when they’re coming from someone you genuinely like. Finally, be careful what you say. You may be caught up in the moment, which can lead to tricky misunderstandings to untangle down the road. 

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope 
You finally clear the air on an issue that’s been bothering you for the past few weeks. While the conversation itself may be stressful, the relief you feel will be palpable. Getting past this issue also frees your mind to focus on something new. It’s a great time to consider shaking up your daily routine—perhaps trying a new gym class, or listening to a podcast you haven’t heard before. It may be a minor tweak, but trust that the change can help you maximize your full potential.

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope 
Oh wow, Archers—love is in the air, and it is good. In the next few days, expensive Jupiter, your personal planet, links with revolutionary Uranus, casting a spotlight on a person you may not have considered as a potential love interest. Attached? You may discover something (good!) about your partner that you never knew before. Bottom line: Libra, the sign of partnership, wants you to tune into your relationship potential. You’re always independent, but it’s okay to ask for help, do things together, and otherwise go through the world as a couple. 

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope 
The family tension is high, and you’ve just about reached your breaking point. First off, deep breath. The best thing you can do is take some time to destress before you explode. Second, it may be time to have that conversation you’ve been avoiding. You may be worried about hurt feelings or burned bridges, but trust that things will only get worse if you don’t let people know what’s bothering you. Finally, a reminder: You are not your family. Reclaiming your independence and realizing how you differ can give you some space to assert yourself. 

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope 
As dynamic Jupiter links to inventive Uranus, you’re on fire! Your brain is moving a million miles a minute, and you have so much to do, say, invent, and explore. It’s awesome! Remember: Ideas are more powerful when you share them. Inviting others to share your ideas not only will help you when your enthusiasm flags later this month, it can also help you actually get your idea off the ground. Also, consider becoming friends with your coworkers—you sometimes seem aloof, but right now, the stars say a bit more comingling of your work life and personal life could be a great thing. 

Pisces Weekly Horoscope 
You are so ready to take a leap! And you should—but remember, sometimes five small steps can be just as fast, effective, and smooth as one jump. In other words, take the risk, but break it up into a few different actions, so you aren’t doing everything all at once, you have everything accounted for, and if an issue does arise, you can quickly change course. What’s the big rush? The slower you go, the more effective you may be. Trust that things will work out—but hurrying things can backfire.

In Aspect, Sign, Spirit

Your Weekly Horoscope for September 10-17: It’s a Golden Week. Here’s Why!

Get a map to your future, with a free psychic reading.

A Pisces full moon may have made you feel ultra emotional last week, with explosions, confusing conversations, and an inner emotional rollercoaster. Luckily, that’s all behind you, and this week, as things settle down, you may feel a deep urge to be as productive as possible. Roll with it. That “back to school” feeling isn’t your imagination; Mercury is now direct and the planets are in a prime position for you to forge a path forward, make plans, and work hard to manifest your dreams. But it’s not all hard work. Your social life blossoms as well, with things for all zodiac signs feeling lighter, easier, and more fun than they have in awhile. In short: It’s a golden week. Make the most of it! 

Aries Weekly Horoscope 
Rams are ready to go, and have a big project in mind. What’s stopping you? Yourself. Getting mired down in details, what-ifs, or small picture issues can only make it tough to get your idea off the ground. Trust that those issues will work themselves out, and keep your focus big. You may want to invite someone else into your plan—having more people on board will help you keep your momentum. This weekend, the planets say a lovely aspect will reveal itself on Friday night, making it an amazing night to go out or plan a date if you’re single. Attached? Spend some one on one time with your partner—you’ve both been busy, and reconnecting as a duo is the piece of the puzzle that’s missing in you becoming unstoppable. 

Taurus Weekly Horoscope    
For a Bull, home is a sanctuary, but a busy summer schedule has made it tough to do anything more than the bare minimum. Spending some time getting your home fall-ready, whether it’s redecorating, getting some new accessories, or even just doing a deep clean, will be exceptionally satisfying for you. It may be time to invest some money in your home life—whether it’s upgrading to a nicer place, or even just buying a home accessory that makes you happy. As the weekend approaches, someone from your past may pop up. Forget the “I’m tired” excuse and make an effort to see them—the stars suggest it’ll be more than a casual catchup, and they may be key for a new job or romantic opportunity.

Is love in your stars?

Gemini Weekly Horoscope    
Things are stressful this week, Gemini! One word: Relax. We know, it’s easier said than done. But the more you add some self-care rituals into your routine, the better you’ll feel. Don’t try to forge through everything alone, though. Even if someone can’t “help” you, talking through it, or allowing yourself to take a coffee or ice cream break, may be just what you need for a change of perspective. Also, are you so sure you’re the only one who can solve whatever problem you’re facing? Inviting others to help troubleshoot may be the wisest move. This weekend, a family issue takes most of your attention: Remember, you’re already stressed; do whatever you can to mitigate it—including taking yourself temporarily away from the situation.

Cancer Weekly Horoscope
The stars say that you may have received an infusion of cash at the end of last month, and Crabs are feeling it burning a hole in their bank account! Instead of indulging, consider using some of that money to invest in your career in some way. Taking a course or working with a career counselor or life coach may pay off. If you are going to indulge, think quality, not quantity, and give yourself time. If something sells out immediately, then it just wasn’t the right purchase. Your home sector is in focus as the week rounds out; consider inviting friends over to your place. Hanging out at home with your favorite people is exactly the non-monetary indulgence you need. 

Leo June Weekly Horoscope
Intense Lions are itching for a challenge this week. Instead of focusing on work, where you’ve spent a ton of time and energy lately, consider investing in a hobby. Either try something you did as a kid, pick up something you haven’t done in awhile, or take a class, course, or guided hike, just for the fun of it. Bonus points if it’s outside: Sun-loving Lions are especially attuned to the rhythms of the season, and this time of year can be tough for Leos—getting some fresh air and Vitamin D can combat those fall blues. Finally, this weekend is red hot when it comes to your love life. If you’re single, stop using the “too busy” excuse and sign up for a dating app. Attached? It’s time to do a date night right. Candles, wine, conversation—you know the drill.

Virgo Weekly Horoscope 
You’ve got some major ideas, and you know one of them is slam dunk awesome. So why are you trying so hard to convince others? If you believe in it, go out there and get it done! Trust that admiration and praise will come later, but right now, the most important thing for you, Virgos, is to get that idea out there and bring it to life. As the stars move to a more secluded sector of your chart, you may find yourself thinking about the big questions, including what your life purpose is! Meditating, reading, studying can all be helpful; just give yourself a chance to hear your inner voice—it’s your biggest ally this month. 

Libra Weekly Horoscope 
With harmonious Venus in your chart, it feels like you can do no wrong. Right? Just remember that even superheroes need friends, and it may be prime time to enlist the help of someone else. A life coach could help bring your life to the next level; a conversation with a friend can help remind you just how good you have it. So reach out. Another option: Consider volunteering this week. The world needs your sparkling personality more than ever. The more you get out, the more you get outside your head, which is essential for moving forward and not tripping yourself up.  

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope 
Your social zone is on fire this week, but chatty Scorpios still need to be careful about what they say—and who they say it too. While Scorpios like to be direct, and are proud of the way they handle social drama, as Mercury catches up to lively Mars, it’s essential to just think a sec before you blurt something out. Talking behind people’s backs will backfire. If you must get something off your chest, make sure you keep the gossip to a minimum, and do it out of earshot of anyone else. People are noticing you this week, and that’s not a bad thing. You may find that a skill you’ve kept on the back burner is getting a lot of attention and praise; it might be a good week to see if you want to bring that skill to the next level.

Tired of being alone? See what’s in the cards with a free tarot Love Reading.  

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope 
Work is driving you nuts this week. While it’s tempting to spill to whoever will listen, the more time you spend talking about work drama, the more it will affect your life. The best antidote is to get outside, get moving, and socialize with people outside your work environment. And while a clash between you and a coworker may be inevitable, approaching the issue with a clear head is key. As much as possible, move passion to the side and focus on facts for a quick resolution. And it may be time to consider a new professional step. You may get inspiration from the unlikeliest sources, so keep your eyes and ears open!

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope 
It’s a good week, Caps! First, your sector of travel is lighting up, which may mean a trip is on the horizon. But before you say yes, weigh the pros and cons. Skipping the expense and having some time to yourself may be what you need. Second, you may get some sort of financial windfall. While practical Caps have no problem being smart about their money, the stars say it may be high time to splurge a bit. Ask yourself: What do you want? And remember, there is no selfish answer. The weekend has all the markings of being a great one, and it may be the best time to mix business and pleasure. Socializing with your colleagues, or getting caught up on a work assignment, may be exactly the steps you need to take to get your career where you want it to be. 

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope 
Ch-ch-ch-changes. You’ve had a long summer thinking about what you want your best life to look like, and are ready to make things happen. But your friends may be holding you back, which is both confusing and angering. Here’s the thing: They’re afraid that change will pull you away from them. And it might. Which is why it’s such a good time to assess the roles the friends you have are playing in your life. Maybe the ones who are holding on too hard just don’t serve you anymore. Because, Aquarians, you’re ready to become unstoppable. Stop worrying about what others think, and go where your gut leads—you won’t regret it! 

Pisces Weekly Horoscope 
The Pisces full moon last Wednesday was tough. The good news is, it’s over, and you may have emerged with a new or more evolved understanding of yourself, and, if you’re in a relationship, your SO. But before you say anything, make sure you’re in touch with yourself. You’re still feeling vulnerable and sensitive, so it may not be the best week to bring up a life changing conversation. Next week, the future will be so much more clear. And in the meantime, indulge in some self-care. Treating yourself well is what your soul really needs.

5 Ways to Seriously Rule This Virgo Season

5 Ways to Seriously Rule This Virgo Season

By Gala Darling

On August 28, 2017

In Luck, Spirit, Summer

5 Ways to Seriously Rule This Virgo Season

There’s no better time to take control of your career than Virgo Season. Your astrological Career Report will show you how.

Take it from a card-carrying Virgo: This is an auspicious time. Is it any surprise that back to school kicks off in Virgo season? Those of us who are familiar with Virgo’s get-it-done energy know that nothing could make more sense. After all, Virgo season is a time for self improvement, self-awareness, and getting your sh*t together. No matter how productive your year has been so far, September presents us with the perfect opportunity to recalibrate and seriously step up our game. Got unfinished projects? Now is the time to make a plan and finish the year on a high.

5 Must-Do Moves to Energize Your Life This Virgo Season:

1. Get rid of your old clutter. 
Nothing drives a Virgo crazy like a big old collection of crap, so make like one of us and go through your home with a big garbage bag. We live by William Morris’ proclamation: “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” So, keep this in mind as you liberate yourself of uncomfortable pairs of shoes, broken necklaces, and hideous old coffee mugs your ex left behind!

2. Priortize your goals and create a plan. 
What are the top three things you’d like to have completed by the end of the year? Do you want to finish your first draft, launch your business, buy a home? Select your three most inspiring and exciting goals, and then work backwards. What will you need to do in order to cross them off the list entirely? Write down each micromovement, set yourself some deadlines, and make it happen! If you do, you’ll look back on 2017 as a year that really meant something. If not, it’s just another year, no different from the rest.

3. Step away from relationships that don’t serve you.
When you’re truly devoted to your work, it becomes clear that positioning yourself in the center of a maelstrom of drama is a huge time-suck. If you really want to have an impact and contribute something meaningful to the world, you simply have to cut off those people who create unrest in your world. Stop replying to those text messages, don’t initiate coffee dates, and unfollow them on social media. Life is too short for bullsh*t! Instead of surrounding yourself with a fleet of drama queens, focus on a few great people who support you and want you to be your best.

4. Back off from your social calendar!
Virgo energy can sometimes remind me of The Hermit card in the tarot: It’s about going inside yourself so you can focus and create things of substance. It’s almost impossible to work on your masterpiece when you’re meeting friends every night and prowling around town like a wild animal. Making something meaningful requires sacrifice, and it also requires introspection and time alone. Don’t worry: There are plenty of holiday parties just around the corner! Get your work in now and you can celebrate it all later.

5. Create routines and rituals that support you. 
We’ve all had a grand old summer, living it up and letting it all hang out. But now it’s time to get back to the grind, and in order to do it properly, you need systems, routines, and rituals that will facilitate the process. Do you need a new workout regimen? You might try my Bad Witch Workout, or find a workout that matches your sign. Do you need a diet do-over? Watch What The Health! Do you need an offline organizational system? Filofax is my favorite! Ask yourself, What do I need to do, eat, and plan in order to be my optimal self? And then go out there and do it.

This Virgo believes in you!

The Surprising Influence Birth Order Has on Your Zodiac Sign

Genetics, family dynamics, temperament — there’s so much that goes into making you the person you are, and much of it is happenstance. But understanding what factors are at play can get you on your way to living your best life. Both your zodiac sign and birth order have an affect on your personality, but what if the effects seem to counteract? Because your sign underplays a major part in your personality, it can also affect what traits resulting from your birth order are amplified over others. We’ve broken down how each horoscope sign deals with being the eldest, youngest and everything in between.

According to psychologist Dr. Kevin Leman, cauthor of The Birth Order Book: Why You Are The Way You Are, your birth order shapes your personality. Furthermore, each spot in the birth order has its own unique challenges, according to child and family therapist Mari Wallace.

Firstborn

Typically, the firstborn is a natural leader, and as firstborn, you are reliable, conscientious, and structured. Your parents gave you a ton of rules that you not only followed but instilled in your younger siblings, leaving you with some control issues. You are more cautious than your siblings, and also more success-driven. You want to be the best at everything. After all, you were born in first place after all!

Aries

Over-achiever, competitive, and substitute parent for your younger siblings. You tend to be confident in yourself.

Taurus

Cautious, dependable, very determined to reach your goal, and a textbook example of a firstborn. You will do anything for your loved ones.

Gemini

Charming leader, able to talk your way out of anything, can get very nervous when things don’t go right, and a jack of all trades.

Cancer

Protective and supportive. You will do anything for your loved ones. Cautious in new situations, you’re usually watching out for your siblings. You get the “feels” a lot.

Leo

You to be in charge and to take care of others but sometimes feel bossy. Warmhearted and caring to the core.

Virgo

A chronic worrier, you look before you leap and plan everything in advance. Very intelligent. As a child, you acted as a “mini-adult” to your siblings. People can rely on you.

Libra

Idealistic and charming, you want to help everyone you meet. You are a major flirt and have big dreams of travel and adventure but are always changing your mind.

Scorpio

Incredibly driven and determined to succeed at whatever cost. You want to be the best at everything and you have a powerful vibe that draws people in. The term “work hard, play hard” fits you like a glove.

Sagittarius

Smart and well read. You are straightforward with others, which can lead to hurt feelings. Resentful of rules, preferring to follow your own paths.

Capricorn

You are both practical and ambitious. You are a very careful and hesitant person, but that doesn’t dampen your humor.

Aquarius

You are an independent person who is loyal and open with everyone. You have a humanitarian streak in you and want to help others whenever you can. You can be a bit contrary with your need to be in charge and your need to go with the flow.

Pisces

The compassionate personality, you are sensitive to other people’s emotions, offering empathy unselfishly. While you are kind and intuitive to others’ needs, you keep things close to the vest when others try to get close to you.

Stuck in the Middle

Middle children tend to try to stand out from the crowd because, as the middle child, you are often looked over in favor of your oldest or younger siblings. Being stuck in the middle has made you tough and able to stick up for yourself, but also extremely social (you were always surrounded by people). You are a people-pleaser with a somewhat rebellious streak. You have a lot of friendships that you love and tend to be the peacemaker in real life since you were the bridge between your eldest and younger siblings.

Aries

Rebellious, and always wanting to stand out from the crowd. Wanting to be the star, you don’t back down or get pushed around.

Taurus

The peacemaker, a listening ear for anyone who needs to vent, easily jealous, and you tend to whole grudges.

Gemini

You have a large circle of friends, and you’re always in everyone’s business. Great social and communication skills.

Cancer

Moody, sensitive to others’ feelings, loving and understanding. You always have a close-knit friend group.

Leo

Rebellious nature, often fighting for attention. Very strong personality and extroverted. You hate being bossed around by anyone, so you follow your own rules.

Virgo

You are painfully shy and try to stay out of the way. You want to please everyone and become overly critical of yourself when that does not happen. You watch and analyze everyone around you.

Libra

Classic Libra. Peacemaker, diplomatic, and your social calendar is always full. It’s very hard for you to decide because you can see so many possibilities.

Scorpio

The black sheep of the family. You are passionate and will do whatever it takes to get what you want. Prone to jealousy and are stubborn to the bitter end.

Sagittarius

A restless soul, you never want to stay in one place. You have a large circle of people you know, but only a few close friends. You use humor as both a way to make yourself stand out, and to cope with life.

Capricorn

As the middle child, you learned the fine art of patience. You act shy and reserved and hold grudges easily.

Aquarius

You are outgoing and have no trouble making friends. You stand out from the crowd by always reinventing yourself and showing off your uniqueness, even if that makes you a little unpredictable.

Pisces

You are a people pleaser who just wants everyone to be happy. You are sensitive to teasing but also kind to others who are suffering. You seem to know when something is wrong and how you can make it right.

The Baby

The baby is the family’s free spirit. As the baby of the family, there was always someone watching over you, making you more fun loving but less responsible. You always seem to get your way. Mostly, you’re outgoing and uncomplicated, unless you are the youngest in a large family. Then you might have more attention-seeking traits. When your siblings are freaking out, you know things will work themselves out.

Aries

Fun loving, carefree, adventurous, and a little self-centered.

Taurus

Loving and outgoing, persistent in getting what you want, and uncomplicated.

Gemini

Young at heart, outgoing, and lively. You always want to be the center of attention, and are a little flighty at times.

Cancer

Free spirit, kind to others. Shy, but not afraid to ask for help. You develop deep and intimate relationships.

Leo

Fun-loving, outgoing, and craves being the center of attention. You either resent being the youngest because everyone bosses you around or love it because you will always be spoiled. Your motto is “everything will work out.”

Virgo

Quiet and reserved around new people. You try to live simplistically and don’t welcome drama by any means.

Libra

Dreamy, easygoing and romantic. Because you are the youngest, you were easily tricked by your older siblings, making it hard for you to trust others.

Scorpio

Emotional and exciting, you live for adventure and can be a little reckless. You love to have a good time and live to be the center of attention, and often are because your magnetic energy excites all who come near you.

Sagittarius

Blindly optimistic that everything will work. Can be careless. Happy-go-lucky and with an easy sense of humor, you value freedom above all else.

Capricorn

You have a great sense of humor and ambitious in getting what you want though you have a hard time staying disciplined.

Aquarius

Fun-loving and uncomplicated, every day is an adventure for you. You tend to wing things and seek to stand out. You are deeply loyal and creative.

Pisces

Taken care of by your parents and siblings, you have a childlike quality about you. While that makes you imaginative and kind, it also makes you unworldly and easily led.

The One and Only

As the only child and sole source of your parent’s attention, you are mature beyond your years because you spend your childhood around adults. Like a firstborn, you are conscientious, diligent, and a natural leader. You are also shyer around people your own age and have a perfectionist streak in you.

Aries

Leader, always needing to be in charge, and confident in your ability to succeed.

Taurus

Mature beyond your years, patient, and diligent. You have a very hard time sharing things with others.

Gemini

Very intelligent and well spoken. Can easily talk to people of all ages, but the nervous type.

Leo

A natural leader with tons of creative talent. You are very generous and think of others before you think of your own needs. Loyal to a fault.

You are an old soul with a type A personality. A perfectionist who is meticulous, diligent, and wise beyond your years. You are also painfully shy in new situations.

Libra

Idealistic, easygoing, and can be gullible. You see all sides of a problem by being mature and objective.

Scorpio

Very secretive and stubborn. You can become very passionate about things that matter to you. You want everything to be perfect. Highly intelligent and cunning.

Sagittarius

Intellectual and philosophical, you speak with the wisdom beyond your years with little tact. You are a straight shooter with a clever sense of humor.

Capricorn

Ambitious and disciplined, you are a classic Capricorn. You have the maturity to not rush into things, willing to wait to get the things you desire. An adult sense of humor.

Aquarius

You are an original. You are smart, creative, and honest to a fault. You may come across as detached from reality, but you truly care about the people in your life. If you were a fictional character, you would be Luna Lovegood.

Pisces

Idealistic creative type, you tend to be shy and keep to yourself. You’re sensitive and can be hurt easily.

And remember — astrology and birth order are only a few pieces of the puzzle! Your upbringing, environment, and even your siblings’ and parents’ zodiac signs can play a big role in what makes you… you!
