The Advocate HOROSCOPE
(March 21st-April 20th): From now until the 31st Mercury,
the planet of intelligence and communication, will be in your sign-
encouraging genius ideas! Your mind is going to be alert and
bubbling with solutions to every problem. Those around you will be less
fortunate however, and may be very caught up in their own lives.
(April 21st-May 20th): This weeks planetary energy will
have you feeling sexy and sassy! Enjoy the confidence and show
off your wardrobe. Be easy though with your words and attitude
towards friends- sensitivity is high and you don’t need any guilt to ruin this
(May 21st-June20th): Your phone should be blowing
up with invites left and right, and now is a great time to start to mix
your friend groups. If there is anybody you have been meaning
to introduce and connect make those plans now! Your old friends and new
friends will lead to new adventures- and more diversity (will help prevent
boredom this spring!)
(June 21st-July 22nd): Any opportunities to make
connections in your field of work- events, social invites and
workshops should be jumped on! You magnetism and ability to
attract powerful people is strong. Pushing for this growth now will lead to
more money in the spring!
(July 23rd-August 22nd): This weeks weather may have
really gotten to you, and your likely to be curled up this weekend
flipping through travel magazines/Pinterest. Fear not, spring is
right around the corner and a busy social life next week will keep you
distracted from the frost.
(August 23rd-September 22rd): If you find yourself feeling
quite defeated right now step back and look at the big picture.
Who is it that you are trying to please? There is a good chance
you’ve accidentally gotten caught up in trying to make a miserable (by
choice) person happy. It’s not you, it’s them…Let it go!
(September 23th- October 22rd): Libras are infamous for
struggling with making decisions. Big and small- they all tend to
really stump you. This upcoming week (and even maybe this
weekend) try to just listen to your heart instead of getting really caught up
in your head. You’ll waste a lot less time, and you won’t regret choices
based on feelings.
(October 23rd-November 22nd): Pay attention to helping
hands at work- the planets are encouraging you to recognize the
person assisting you most, or at least the person who could.
Whether it is a possible business partner or an assistant this person can
be of benefit in the long term and has a genuine connection to you.
(November 23rd-December 21st): Your enthusiasm,
humor and positivity will be at an all time high next week- and
people will flock to you like a moth to a flame! Enjoy this attention
and happiness- the winter blues got the best of you over the past couple
weeks! Start this fun period of time off this weekend by going out with old

inner most circle a priority this upcoming week. With Mercury
buzzing in your domestic sector, now is the time to connect deeply
with your loved ones and work around the home. Any changes you make
to your home will be successful too!
(January 20th- February 19th): With high activity in
your technology and connections area astrologically, next week
is the best time to buy and upgrade your gadgets. Changing over
to the new will go smoothly, and you want to get it done before Mercury
goes retrograde at the beginning of April! April will not be your month for
(February 20th- March 20th): Money will be on your
mind right now, specifically how you should be saving and
spending. Curiosity about how others handle their finances may
strike you- if so, ask questions politely to those you admire. Process
everything you learn from research, and plan the changes you want to
make! Energies are on your side for success.
