Use this year to really reflect, act, and react, and don’t be afraid to drop dead weight if it no longer adds to your health and happiness.

With Pluto in your house of communication, use this year to extend yourself into areas you may have previously been wary of; make the first move, work for that promotion, wear something you may not have before, and let your confidence flow into your aura to make you glow. And when you think you need it, take a step back and remember that, even when things are steadily fantastic, self care is important. Even by doing a simple face mask or reading a book, your relationship with yourself will grow stronger, and you’ll find yourself even happier.

Sagittarius (November 21—December 21)
For you sweet Sagittarius, 2020 brings mental clarity, happiness, and efficiency, which are tools you’ll need to wield tumultuous communications with others. Though 2020 will be fulfilling to you emotionally, bringing with it success and luck, you may find your interactions with others growing more and more confusing, whether because you find yourself miscommunicating your intentions to others or vice versa. So it’s important to be true to yourself this year, focus on what makes you you at your core and use that to set boundaries and goals with others. Search yourself, and ask—what makes you happy, Sagittarius, and how can you achieve that happiness? During times of isolation, reflect on yourself to better connect with others, and during social hours, try and keep in mind how you present yourself.
