Aries – Optimistic Artist (March 21 – April 19)
Every Aries should learn a new skill in 2017.
Courageous, sharp, and spontaneous, Aries thrives on exciting work. Known as the “baby soul” among the constellations, Aries embodies optimism, sometimes to the extreme, yet can be a bit selfish at times. However, with unparalleled enthusiasm, persistence, and initiative, there’s nothing an Aries cannot achieve. In 2017, focus on keeping your mind sharp and expanding your creative abilities through a design workshop or art class. Embrace your imaginative side and let it soar.
Taurus – Thoughtful Creator (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus must work as a team to achieve creative success this year.
Renowned for their practical instincts, Taurus is disciplined and dependable when it comes to getting things done. However, even the most stubborn Taurus can benefit from a touch of forethought. This year, tap into your natural ambition and creative independence by sharing your ideas with your team. Don’t shy away from launching new and challenging projects or implementing innovative ideas. Collaboration and teamwork will be the key to your success in 2017.
Gemini – Balance Designer (May 21 – June 20)
A distracted Gemini needs to come up with a strategy for the coming year.
Known for their quick minds and ability to think clearly, Geminis are great innovators. Highly sociable and playful, Geminis also possess a serious and contemplative side that can make focusing on long-term projects challenging. In 2017, harness your serious side to add balance to your creative work.
Strategize for success by organizing your projects and creative efforts, bringing structure to a potentially chaotic work environment. Be aware of relationships that may distract you and stifle creativity when you need it most.
Cancer – Dedicated Creator (June 21 – July 20)
2017 seems to be the year for Cancer to shine.
Cancer, known as the most creative sign of all, is sincerely dedicated to their craft. Generous with friends, family, and co-workers, Cancer thrives on creative expression. However, mood swings and pessimism can inhibit creativity and hinder success. This year, embrace new ideas, new directions, and new processes. Reignite your creative potential and set new career goals. 2017 holds endless possibilities for you.
Leo – Leading in Creativity (July 21 – August 20)
Leos must do everything they can to achieve their creative ambitions this year.
With a natural leadership instinct, Leo innovators are highly driven and fueled by the allure of success and personal recognition. Smart, calculating, and incredibly skilled, Leo’s downfall can be self-sabotage. This year, take control of your work and creativity. Meet deadlines, take responsibility, and keep your promises. 2017 will be defined by your hard work and creative successes.
Virgo – The Know-It-All Artist (August 21 – September 20)
Virgos need to relax and start learning to think outside the box.
With a brilliant mind, Virgo makers rely heavily on intuition. When something doesn’t feel right, it’s usually a Virgo who first suggests an alternative. The challenge lies in trusting your intuition enough to align with your career goals. Personal conservatism may hinder your innovation. Give yourself permission to think beyond your limits. Start the new year with new experiences, new ideas, and a fresh perspective. Let positivity guide your creative spirit.
Libra – Creative Consultant (September 21 – October 20)
It’s time for Libras to reveal their insides.
With an innate passion for beauty and harmony, Libra creators have a unique edge. Your ability to recognize and nurture talent in others helps facilitate great success with less effort. Expand your creative potential this year by seeking inspiration in music and dance. Discover your artistic side and use this newfound energy to combat stress and tension, which can hinder creativity.
Scorpio – Passionate Artist (October 21 – November 20)
Is this the year that Scorpio gets promoted?
Scorpio, with a romantic heart, is someone who opens up with endless sincerity. As a creator, Scorpio is fierce! Intense emotions fuel your creative spirit, and this year, it’s time to unleash that passion and enthusiasm that has been bottled up. The trick is to ensure that your hard work, dedication, and creative ingenuity are properly rewarded—perhaps it’s time to ask for that promotion.
Sagittarius – Motion Designer (November 21 – December 20)
Sagittarius have always been natural entertainers.
Freedom and mobility accurately describe Sagittarius, with many creators in this sign having a fondness for movement and animation. However, wandering too much can lead to losing control and draining motivation. In 2017, acknowledge your strengths by incorporating rhythmic elements into your designs and embracing your love for movement. Be careful not to get careless or lazy, and avoid promising more than you can deliver.
Capricorn – Powerful Artist (December 21 – January 20)
This is the year for Capricorns to reflect on themselves.
As the most recognizable zodiac sign of all, Capricorn creators never cease to surprise others. With a high degree of self-discipline, Capricorn is born to meet every deadline and exceed expectations. This year, focus on self-reflection to maximize your creative potential. Keep learning and allow insights to guide your creative efforts. Embrace a year filled with personal growth and creative achievements.
Aquarius – Imagination Designer (January 21 – February 20)
If you’re an Aquarius, it’s time to get out and connect.
In 2017, Aquarius creators should engage in group activities and seek connections. With new creative tools and digital art at your disposal, enhance your collaboration skills and hone your abilities. Your bold imagination and good sense of humor are your strengths—use them to inject fun into your work and proactively pursue what you truly deserve.
Pisces – Endless Dreamer (February 21 – March 20)
Pisces have a chance to take the lead this year.
