5. Leo (July 23–August 22)
Ifs and buts are a part of life, Leo, so don’t take them seriously and have some fun. You might need to smack some sense into people, scream your head off, or even break a dish or two. But you gotta do what you gotta do if you want things to go your way. And it is not just about clearing your space, it is also about clearing your head. Rant all you want or share what’s on your mind with someone you trust. Don’t hold back and bottle up because communication is your best friend this week.

6. Virgo (August 23–September 22)
You’ll be feeling a lot calmer this week all thanks to ignoring the negative vibes of people around you. Dear Virgo, sometimes, being in your zone can really be zen, so stay away from nosy people and stay away from becoming one of them this week. Just live in your bubble and don’t indulge in any excess cleaning or lecturing. That should be your motto for 2022. The idea of a happy life is romancing with your bae and keeping the side chicks away. So, send your boo a steamy text and see the week turn hot as hell, quite literally.

Dear Scorpio, the first week of the year is going to be super busy. You’ll face a storm of work, personal affairs, and family. So, the weekly horoscope asks you to take some time out for yourself and take a minute to breathe. You’ll be able to push through most of the week, and honestly, you’ll have fun being productive. Along with that, it’s a great time to indulge in some couple activities if you’re boo’d up. Be it a virtual date, an intimate dinner and drinks scene, or just long hours of conversation over coffee, you have an eventful week waiting ahead for you.
AAE Pro Tip: Sometimes, it’s okay to snooze during work hours, skip the shower, and call it a day.
9. Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Looks like someone is feeling themselves! Well, well, I know that you have been working your ass off and earning big bucks. And you totally deserve it, my darling Sagittarius. But I suggest keeping a check on the incoming cash flow and your expenditures. Just because Zara and H&M have a sale, it doesn’t mean you’ve got to buy those leather pants that will probably never see the light of day. So, unless you want to burn your hard-earned money on wasteful things and then cry over it later, be a wise shopper this week.
AAE Pro Tip: Remember when Ross thought having leather pants is cool? Well yeah, think twice before you shop.
10. Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Bad habits die hard and a Capricorn’s bad habits just don’t die. Delaying your work till the last minute, staying up late watching stupid YouTube videos, and wasting your precious time on people’s opinions of you is going to have an ill effect on your health. So, let the birthday month help you straighten up a little and get you into a decent schedule. Don’t lose vision of your big goals, Cap, ’cause what you manifest now will be achieved later. Keep up the hard work and find better ways to utilise your time (go work out).
AAE Pro Tip: Birthday month is the perfect excuse to slip some liquor into your coffee and make WFH fun.
11. Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Regrets are a part of everyone’s life and a major part of yours, Aquarius. You may have pulled some shit that is going to push you into hard times, so I suggest you sit your ass down for a bit. Stop being all over the place and get your shit together. The first week of the year gives you a great chance to tidy things up for yourself and clean your mess. You don’t want to be in hot waters with people this month, and Capricorn season encourages you to have clear and precise conversations. Stay away from offending jokes, nasty comments, and interrupting people when they are telling you something.
AAE Pro Tip: A little ‘new year new me’ attitude can really help you this week.
12. Pisces (February 19–March 20)
This week brings a helluva lot of family time, and honestly, you could definitely use some. Being around your close ones can really keep you in the right spirits, so have a little fun. Work might get a little extra but you can cut yourself some slack and delegate what isn’t important. Learn to work smart and not just hard if you want to live a little. Go back to doing things that you have always enjoyed because this week promises a creative breakthrough. Get your painting book out or wear your apron and chef’s hat or get back to some good old gardening to connect with yourself this week.
AAE Pro Tip: A fun games night is on the cards, so refresh your bluffing and cheating skills if you wanna stay on top.
Have a lovely first week of 2022!
