What's in Store for Your Love Life This September, According to Your Zodiac
(March 21 to April 19)
Feeling lost and alone and hopelessly single? You might be looking too far away. Sometimes, limiting your love landscape can actually be a good thing. It's time to get really pensive this month and reexamine the kind of partner you're looking for. When you get specific about the characteristics you feel you'll fall in love with, your eyes may start opening up to people who are within your social circle. Some folks deserve a second look—what you're looking for may be staring at you right in the face!
(April 20 to May 20)
Having someone be the object of your affection can totally wreck your sense of self-worth sometimes—insecurities start popping up out of nowhere and even when you feel 99% on point, that 1% can sneak up on you and totally ruin your flow. The stars are reminding you this month that you are awesome, exactly as you are. And that person you've been trying to impress? They're already pretty impressed—and that's without you having to change a single thing. You go, Glen Coco!
(May 21 to June 20)
It's way too easy to lay all the blame, bitterness and jadedness on the ex. But if you really want to move away from the past and start shedding all that baggage, you’re going to have to acknowledge that those past loves—no matter how ugly and hurtful they got—have helped shape the you of the present. All the mistakes you've committed before have brought you to where you are, and any hope you have for a better love in the future springs forth from that. Accept your past and be okay with it.
(June 21 to July 22)
You downplay your good points way too often, Cancer. This month, allow yourself to be bold and wonderful and totally worthy of someone's full attention. You are epic! And don't let anybody make you think otherwise. You're great at helping prop your friends up when they're going through their own love dilemmas, it's about time you took the spotlight and enlisted their support—trust the stars, they'll be happy to help you out. When that guy you've been eyeing returns your attention, don't shy away. Embrace it.
(July 23 to August 22)
You appreciate a good shakeup, Leo, because having things be calm and peaceful on the love front can get a little too boring and ho-hum for your fiery spirit. This month, your relationship may take a couple of non-threatening hits—perhaps an argument here or there, a little bit of jealousy being riled up. Know that the conflict is part and parcel of growing together and evolving together. Just don't get in over your head so that pettiness doesn't take over!
(August 23 to September 22)
You're definitely all for equality when it comes to relationships—you're totally being okay with "leading" and making important decisions for you both, and your partner doesn't have any problems stepping back. That said, it's time to give your receptive, feminine energy side some attention this month. Explore the fun in being led, being surprised and perhaps, even being courted this month. Let yourself be treated and be confident enough to know that that you're still both on equal footing.
(September 23 to October 22)
Before you start whining about never getting your way when it comes to your love life, consider this first: have you actually asked for what you want? There are a ton of wins waiting for you, Libra—if only you bother to ask for them. If you've been waiting around for a prom invite forever, have you even thought of being the first to ask? Great rewards come from great risks. Sure, rejection may sting a little but the stars are reminding you that there is an abundance of love surrounding you. The Universe supports you.
(October 23 to November 21)
If you've been dumped recently, or have been out of that old relationship for so long but haven't gotten out of your rut, then it's time to enlist your friends to help you find your joy once again. Moaning and whining is not a good look for you, Scorpio. You may like to play up the feels and the pain and the "woe is me" mentality, but you're never going to find new love if you're constantly hemming and hawing about your past. Ask your best girls to take you out for a night out. Open yourself up to cheer once again.
(November 22 to December 21)
Things aren't going to change between you and your partner (or that person who you've been wanting to hook up with forever but haven't) if you don't initiate change. How many more times are you going to let yourself be a doormat before you realize that you can actually end it yourself? There is so much light in you, Sagittarius—but if you’re refusing to see it and are continuing to stay in a pattern of self-deprecation, you're not going to feel any better. Change starts now. Rinse and repeat.
(December 22 to January 19)
Has something been bugging you about the person you're interested in? Your friends may say you're being unreasonable, and your logic may even tell you that you're making no sense. But those gut instincts are there for a reason and if you really feel ticked off one way or another about the person you're with, then perhaps you should explore not being with them anymore. It's time to accept the hard lessons and receive what the Universe offers up to replace them. Things could get a whole lot better!
(January 20 to February 18)
Is your love life stressing you out, above school work and family obligations and extra curriculars? It's time to drop those worries and let your inner queen take over—someone who's feathers don't get ruffled by the little things, someone who can fiercely deal with any attacks coming up, and someone who knows that life has got more to offer than the stress on your table at the moment. Love and falling in love should feel good. Make space for that kind of love in your life, not any other kind.
(February 19 to March 20)
It's about time you turned the story around, Pisces, and focus on yourself first. It may appear ruthless to dismiss all the people who are interested in you (and hanging around by the sidelines), but there comes a certain integrity and honor when you say "Wait a minute, I'm going to need some ME TIME right now." How can you give yourself the love you know you deserve in your heart, instead of waiting to receive it from someone else? Fall in love with YOU.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song
By: CJ Reyno
Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?
Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.
You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.
As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”
I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
Here's a fan art that I made for Lee Joo Young of Itaewon class! I've been making digital illustration since last year and I'm happy that I was able to see my improvements. I'm also happy to see people's reactions and support for my craft even though all of it are made through my phone (adobe illustrator) only ????. You don't actually have to use expensive or complicated medium as long as you know how to be creative and like what you're doing, then you can do it. ????
