Well, we did it. I’m not quite sure how, or even why, exactly, but we are officially done with 2016–which, if you will recall from a whole two days ago, was a famously catastrophic year on a truly massive level. Sure, there were some good things, but most people, I think, are glad to be done with 2016 altogether.
Which brings us to 2017. What a gift! A new year! A new you! Even if you’re not totally sold on the idea that a new year will unequivocally bring about great things, it does feel like a breath of fresh air to have something that, finally, feels like a new start. While there are many things you can do to help make your 2017 great–studying hard, cutting bad people out of your life, spending more time on things you enjoy–it’s not all up to you. It’s important to know what the stars have planned for you, too. So, check out your horoscopes for January 2017:
