Your December Life Horoscopes Are Here!

Ring in season's greetings by following the stars.


(November 22 to December 21)

The rush of finals, family reunions, and friends getting super demanding may be getting to you, Sagittarius. The holidays, for all their fun, can be a lot of pressure. Learning how to navigate your way through the trenches can be tricky. Here's a suggestion—make time for yourself. It may seem like there aren't enough hours in the day to get things done, but we promise that if you can sneak in a 30-minute catnap pre-review, pre-game, and pre-party, your sanity (and your eyebags) will thank you for it. Keep your chin up!


(December 22 to January 19)

You normally like things slow and steady, but here's an advanced warning—things are going to move super quickly once December rolls in. It may leave you feeling shell-shocked, how Christmas and New Year's can get things out of control. One way to keep stable despite all the hoopla is to remember why anyone bothers with the holidays—it's the best time to show the people you care about that you love them. That's right, love. It's looking like a great season to open your heart to romance, too.



(January 20 to February 18)

Watch your back, girl—things may get a little tricky on the friend front. If you have a sneaking suspicion that some sneaky things are going on behind your back, follow that instinct. Keep your friends close and your frenemies closer.

(February 19 to March 20)

How to end the year with a bang? Get out of that comfort zone you've been inhabiting forever and finally start on whatever it is you've been wanting to do. Ask that guy out? Try out for the football team? Get into advanced calculus? You can do it.


(March 21 to April 19)

If you want people to get you, you're going to have to speak up for yourself and get your message across loud and clear. Truth-telling sounds way easier than it actually is, but you'll get a tremendous load lifted off your shoulders once you're clear about who you are and what you deserve.



(April 20 to May 20)

Your confidence may be dropping right now, given all the social events you have to keep up with and academic obligations you need to fulfill. Look at yourself in the mirror and spot what's great about you. You can be anything, do anything, make anything happen.


(May 21 to June 20)

Stop for a moment and notice just how great all your relationships are. Your cup runneth over this season, Gemini! If your relationship has been feeling a bit stale, you're getting a chance to get excited about romance again. Your emotions are at an all-time high (and in a good way)!


(June 21 to July 22)

Take your time off school this month to prep for an awesome new year. It's time to make a game plan and visualize what you'd like to happen over the next 12 months. If you're a senior, this is most especially true for you. It's time to conquer college and the real world.



(July 23 to August 22)

Have you ever tried dipping your fingers in some artsy craftsy activities? There's a strong pull for you to express yourself this season. Everyone needs to release all the pent-up energy they've got deep inside—it'll do you good to get all those feelings off your chest.


(August 23 to September 22)

There's just too much on your mind right now, Virgo. It's time to give your poor brain a break and let those voices in your head peter out. If you're wound up 24/7, there's no way you can tackle everything on your To Do list. Leave the assignments, even for a minute. Life goes on even when you miss a thing or two.


(September 23 to October 22)

You're on the brink of something brand new. Maybe you've met a new guy who's finally convincing your heart it can still feel things. Maybe you've rediscovered a newfound love for playing guitar. Whatever it is, don't let go of it. Life's about to get more interesting.



(October 23 to November 21)

Family reunions can get a little awkward right now. Try not to ruffle anyone's feathers and keeping things low key. Sometimes, it'll do you good to just sit through all the obligations without stirring up any drama. The holidays spent in peace will be worth it.

Winning Heart

The journey of how I won people’s hearts by having a winning heart

Whatever happens tonight, I am a winner. That was the last line I delivered in front of the roaring crowd. My knees were trembling and my smile was shaking. I wanted to radiate confidence but I knew inside me were whirling storms of uncertainty. I wasn’t sure how to carry on for the rest of the night, it was only the first hour and my soul was already exhausted. I stood in front of an unfamiliar sea of people, I felt uncomfortable as they fixed their glances on me. The stage was bright and flashy as my co-contestants glazed the platform with outstanding physique and beauty. I couldn’t look straight at them because every time I did, a bucketful of insecurity was being poured on me. The whole pageant took about a few hours but it felt like eternity to me. I repeatedly asked myself questions every single time I stood on that platform. My vision was impaired by the blinding spotlights and all I could hear were the deafening roar of the audience combined with the booming music of the event. My head was filled with questions like “why are you here?”, “Will you be okay?” What will others think of you?” “What if you fail?”. Every step was heavier as I continued to overthink.

For a moment on stage, I felt like I was floating. I was staring blankly at the end of the gymnasium. I was awakened by the loud cheer from the front row, I fixed my glance and saw large letters A-B-Y. it was like a snap to reality, I realized that’s my name. This time I could hear the synchronized cheers of people screaming my name. I smiled, walked away from the spotlight as I whispered to myself “let’s do this”. As the curtains opened, I walked towards the stage I felt lighter and different from the person a while ago. Walking was much easier and my knees weren’t trembling any longer. I stood at the edge of the stage, wandered my glance, and smiled genuinely. Flashing those pearly whites took barrels of longtime stored courage from within me. I marveled at how I could see the rainbow in the lights, the spotlights weren’t blinding anymore.


My feet started stomping to the music every time I pose and my hips would flawlessly sway to the music. The roar of the audience was overwhelming no more, it was like whispers lost in the beat of the music. I knew as I stood there, all I needed to do was smile and be myself. My name was called accompanied by the thunderous applause and booming cheers of the crowd. I stood there alongside with other contestants. I was holding a bouquet and a trophy. I could feel the heavy crown on top of my head. However, the trophy beside me was much bigger, the lady beside me wore an even flashier crown, it was the crown of the titleholder. That night I landed the first runner-up spot. My head was filled with “what ifs”. What if I did just a little better, what if I exerted more effort and so on.


As I stepped down on stage, several people rushed to me. They were jumping, screaming and clapping. It was so chaotic that it took me a millennium to recognize them, it was my family. They were hugging me from all directions. When I saw their smiles I knew I did great. I realized that was what I meant when I said “whatever happens tonight I am a winner”. Their presence, genuine smiles, and warm hugs meant more than the trophy and sash that night. For them, I was a star who shined through the darkness of the night. Before leaving the venue, a hand tapped me from behind “Congrats,” she whispered I turned to see her, and to my surprise she was a schoolmate who used to tease me because of my chubby physique.

I smiled as I expressed my gratitude towards her. As I walked away, I realized that I accomplished something legendary that night. I was able to showcase that pageants are not only for thin-looking, tall people. I managed to snatch everyone’s attention with this average height and chubby body. That night started with so much uncertainty and insecurity. As I stared at my reflection, I looked exhausted but I was wearing a different smile. A smile of victory and bravery. A smile that defeated the stereotypes and stigma about people like me. That night ended with a realization that maybe winning isn’t always about winning the crown, it’s about winning people’s hearts and having a winning heart.
