Monthly Horoscope: Aries Season
Aries, to say you’ve been working through some personal challenges lately is an understatement. Well, don’t get too comfortable. While you may have some things worked out on a personal front, there is great financial change ahead of you. Now is the time to overcome those obstacles that have been blocking your way for far too long and take that financial risk you’ve been mulling over. There will be a learning curve and not every new venture will be a successful one—so you’ll have to be quick on your feet and learn to roll with the punches. But the risk will be worth it. That lash studio you’ve been dreaming of opening? Now is the time for you to take your first serious steps toward it. That microblading course you’ve been thinking about saving up for? Now’s the time to invest in furthering your education. Whatever that little voice in the back of your head has been softly whispering to you to strive for, now is the time to listen and act.
Taurus, it will seem as though new opportunities are being delivered to you on a silver platter these days. People will be naturally drawn to you this month, so take advantage of it! Take the time to really educate your clients on their skin; they will be so interested and impressed with your professionalism and knowledge, that they won’t even hesitate to rebook their next treatment with you.
Gemini, you’ll be seeing nothing but money signs for the next month. But while you’re busy making major profits, take a moment to reflect on your success and the industry you work in. While things are going great now, don’t forget that the esthetics world is everchanging. This is a perfect time to analyze your career, see where you currently stand, and work out where you want to be next.
Cancer, important eyes will be on you this month. Show them what you’re made of and what you can bring to the table and you will be rewarded. Whether it’s an increase in pay or a promotion to a spa management position, your work ethic and dedication have caught the attention of your superiors and colored them impressed. Maintain a positive reputation and don’t be afraid to network—these actions will help you get to where you’re going.
Leo, networking and cooperating with your peers will be a key focus for you. This may be a slow month for you finance-wise, but don’t let that get you down (or tempt you to make any major purchases in the hopes that it’ll make you feel better… it won’t). Channel your energy toward being in the right place at the right time and your career will thank you for it. Attend a trade show or a local event and you may meet just the person to help give your career the boost it needs!

Virgo, you’re starting to feel more like a therapist than an esthetician. Clients seem to be more comfortable venting their frustrations or sharing details of their personal lives with you. And that's okay, as long as you're not giving mental or medical health advice (remember your scope!). Every now and then, it’s okay to let others take the spotlight and focus on what’s happening with them instead of what’s been going on with you. Your active listening skills will pay off.
Libra, you’re in a bit of a lull this month, huh? It happens to the best of us. We can’t always be back-to-back with clients every moment of every day. While your mental focus has been elsewhere, in more personal aspects of your life lately, your enthusiasm for work will slowly but surely return.
Scorpio, the hustle is REAL. You’ve been busting your chops to make ends meet and even though you’ve been wiping the sweat off your brow at the end of every day (or every wax service), you’re feeling happy and full of creativity! You’re not letting the stress get to you, and your clients are loving the energy you exude. Your boss and those around you will also be impressed by your hard work and ambition.
Sagittarius, patience is a virtue. Despite exhaustive efforts you attempt to further your career faster, you won’t get very far. Sometimes it’s just a simple matter of biding your time until the moment is right. Practicing patience will prove more impactful than the constant push. While you’re taking a step back, shift your focus to your mental strategy. Dreaming, preparing, visualizing—don’t dismiss those strokes of brilliance that come to you at 2am. Something major lies there.
Capricorn, you’ve always been good at managing money and it’s paying off (Ha! Get it?). You’ll finally have a firm grasp on your expected income, and even better … you’ll feel comfortable and in control of your finances. For an esthetician, this is a huge accomplishment, as financial stability can take years to achieve. So go ahead and treat yourself (responsibly, of course)! Take a vacation, have yourself a nice dinner, or treat yourself to your favorite facial treatment. You deserve it!
Aquarius, it’s time for some spring cleaning! This is an excellent opportunity to give your salon or spa room a face lift. Whether it’s repairs that are needed, a whole new look, or simply rearranging the space, this will provide both you and your clients with a refreshed, inspired feeling. Also be on the lookout for a partnership opportunity coming your way. It could prove to be very advantageous for you.
Pisces, whether you are actively on the job hunt or are currently employed and casually keeping your options open, the world is your oyster right now! There are so many amazing career opportunities open to you right now, all you need to do is reach out and pick on
