Choose your astrological sign below, and learn what this month holds in store for you and your writing!
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
Over the next few months, you’ll be especially creative and inventive. Use this high in creative energy in your writing! Write about those unpredictable topics you’ve been itching to discuss—perhaps something related to humanitarianism or environmentalism.
It’s easy for you to become detached. However, when it comes to writing and working, passion can really invigorate your life. See feedback for what it is: a chance to grow.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Yesterday you were in love with your writing. Today you want to throw it in the garbage. Tomorrow you’ll probably rummage through your trash can for it. You’re on an emotional roller coaster with your project! Try to ignore your more intense emotions for the next few weeks. Let your thoughts and plans flow freely without judgment. Trust yourself!
Fictional Character You Most Resemble: Charlie Brown
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Your 2018 resolutions might already have your head swimming—finish writing trilogy A while starting trilogy B. You’ve got a lot of ideas that demand your attention! As you analyze your progress, be more patient and avoid comparing yourself to other writers. Just because someone has gotten further than you doesn’t mean it’s time to trash the whole thing.
Fictional Character You Most Resemble: Wonder Woman
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
You might be having some difficulties with setting goals or coming to terms with potential changes this year. And who isn’t? Maybe it’s time to step up your game and go completely freelance—maybe it’s time to move. You can accomplish your toughest obstacles yet by being patient with the rollbacks and by surrounding yourself with people who want you to succeed.
Fictional Character You Most Resemble: Lucas Sinclair (Stranger Things)
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Over the next few months, you’re going to feel more fulfilled and more confident. You could be feeling this way from all the witty one-liners you’ll slide into your writing this month, or you might write a piece or two that is exceptionally eloquent. Geminis tend to be intuitive about the world around them, so perhaps this month you’ll use your eloquence to write about something that really matters and motivates social change.
Regardless of the topic you choose, try to remain consistent with the amount of writing you do and with your writing habits.

Cancer (June 21–July 22)
You pour your emotions and imagination into everything you do, and that’s a good thing! The next step in your writing process may be a bit hard though.
While your intuition and imagination help you create amazing work, you’re a bit protective of and personal with your writing. In order for your work to achieve its highest potential, you’ll need to share it with someone else. Try to open up and let others catch a glimpse of the real you. Embrace their feedback and love them for helping you.
Fictional Character You Most Resemble: Sailor Moon
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Leos may be feeling intolerant toward mistakes or imperfection this month. You might be able to make these feelings work for you—particularly as you proofread or edit your writing. However, don’t let your grammar or style mistakes get you down. Remember, a typo is just a typo. It doesn’t reflect your ability to write.
One of the best ways to get better is to remind yourself how far you’ve come. You can do this by reading through some of your old writing projects. Again, don’t be overly critical. Just appreciate the way your writing has changed over time and the improvements you’ve made.
Fictional Character You Most Resemble: Princess Leia
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Your interpersonal relationships may inspire some of your writing this month. As you engage in analytical and intelligent conversations, you may feel motivated to write about some of the things you’ve been discussing. This could make your writing extra prolific and interesting. Use your meticulous attention to detail and write down everything that inspires you. A little extra work will really pay off in the coming months.
Virgos tend to be modest, but you should congratulate yourself when you accomplish something well. After the work you’ll do this month, you’ll deserve it.
Fictional Character You Most Resemble: Mary Poppins
Libra (September 23–October 22)
You may be especially indecisive this month, and that could affect your writing. From constantly changing topics at the last second to a total disinterest in more mundane topics, you might find the beginning of this month could be a little rough. It might help to indulge yourself a little. Consider writing in public, like a coffee shop or your local library. Since you’re sociable and charming, this should be a breeze for you. Remember to treat yourself.
Fictional Character You Most Resemble: Hamlet
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
You’re determined, powerful, passionate, and magnetic. And you can use these traits to champion your writing. Are you writing a proposal or a query letter? Now is the time to use some persuasive writing and speaking to get people on your side and get your work published or accepted. Let your enthusiasm for your project speak loud and clear. Remember to take time to relax and rejuvenate, though. Don’t exhaust yourself.
Fictional Character You Most Resemble: Batman
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
Over the next few months, you may want to tone down your restless nature. Try to be patient and listen to your inner editing voice. This month will have a lot of learning opportunities for you, but only if you pay attention.
You may find philosophical topics particularly interesting this month. If so, find a way to include your research or incorporate cool ideas into your writing. Because you’re so straightforward, you have an easier time explaining difficult topics than others do. Use this to your advantage as you write.
Fictional Character You Most Resemble: Indiana Jones
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
Due to your ambitious nature, over the next few months, you’ll work on establishing yourself as an expert in your field. This could simply mean you’ll spend more time researching before you start writing, or it could have to do with the amount of content you produce. One reason for this could be because of some of the New Year’s resolutions you’ve made. You may be motivated to improve yourself during this time of the year. Be patient, Capricorn. With time and hard work, your efforts will be rewarded.
