Your Audiobook Horoscopes for the Spring Equinox

Happy new year, stardust! We’re three months into 2020 and things are stranger than ever, but the Spring Equinox (March 19, 2020) marks the beginning of a brand new astrological year. That means another go at the whole “fresh start” thing. And doesn’t that just sprout your daffodils? Lean on audiobooks to get you through this transition–they’ll help breathe fresh life into your (real and metaphorical) spring cleaning, and make even old stories seem new.

ARIES

Have you blown out your birthday candles already, Aries? Because big dreams that seemed like they were merely a wish for you are coming true. Say what?! Let this dream within your grasp make you motivated. Go forth with gusto, you firey ram, ask for the whole dang world!

TAURUS

Stubborn? You? In spring? Groundbreaking. This time though, that classic Taurus hard headed-ness comes through in the way you’re standing up for yourself. Don’t be afraid to throw a few (metaphorical) wrenches where you see fit, and don’t second guess.

GEMINI

You’re feeling a little disheartened recently, perhaps with a number of things: your work, your relationships, the state of the world. Fear not, because there is still magic and beauty and things to give you butterflies. Take a step back and look inward to find it. It might have been there this whole time.

You should listen to: Nobody Will Tell You This but Me by Bess Kalb

CANCER

Think outside the box in the way you make connections. After all, connections are Cancer’s lifeblood, and you could be missing out on someone really magnificent. Surprise one of your friends. Reach out to someone you feel you NEED to be pals with. Carpe crabby!

You should listen to: The Lonely Heart of Maybelle Lane by Kate O’Shaughnessy

LEO

YOU are the king/queen of the forest, you great beast. You have courage, even when you think you don’t. Courage can mean anything–even something as simple as merely showing up. Show up so no matter what, even if you teeter, you can look back and know you tried.

You should listen to: Franci’s War by Franci Rabinek Epstein

VIRGO

You’re feeling a little lost right now–whatever situation you find yourself in isn’t lending itself to your usual go-get-em-tiger tactics. Take some time to think creatively about how you’re best equipped to work right this very second. Don’t lose your spirit. We need you, Virgo!

You should listen to: Burning Bright by Kelsey J. Patel

LIBRA

You’re feeling down in the dumps, which is okay. Feel your feelings. But don’t let that mope become permanent. You gotta open up those eyes and look through the sludge to find the things that make this life worth it. And sometimes there is a lot of sludge. No one is doubting that there is a significant amount of sludge. But the good is in there, too.

You should listen to It’s Not All Downhill From Here by Terry McMillan

SCORPIO

Have you ever seen an enraged scorpion? No? Me either, but I bet it looks a lot like you, right this moment. Injustice, lack of compassion, people putting the recyclables in the trash can. You’re tired of ALL of it. Don’t tamper down your anger or take a nap now–your fury is going to propel you to fight the good fight.

You should listen to: Unfree Speech by Joshua Wong

SAGITTARIUS

Time to put your money where your mouth is (or pony up, if you wanna be cute). Commit to your values by doing some classic show-don’t-tell good: reach out to a friend, offer a helping hand, or pick a cause and use your voice to amplify it. When you walk the walk, you’ll find yourself coming closer to living in the world you’d like to see.

You should listen to: The Love Story of Missy Carmichael by Beth Morrey

CAPRICORN

You are the star, the director, and the PA of this movie we call your life, Capricorn. This means you’re going to have to do the nitty gritty work before you show off something shiny and cool. No one is going to do it for you. You’ll even have to get your own bagels.

You should listen to: You’re a Miracle (And a Pain in the Ass) by Mike McHargue

AQUARIUS

Your whooole situation is changing right now–are you on a vacation? Has your routine been shaken up? Luckily, Aquarius doesn’t shy away from the odd or the odd ducks. I bet you’re already imagining various ways you could better fit into this new life of yours, even if it’s only for a little while. Go with, as they say, the flow.

You should listen to: The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel

PISCES

Are you feeling that chaotic energy, Nemo? Spoiler: it’s chaotic good. Life is wild and you’re up for the challenge, because you are feeling. Your. self. You know your worth. Keep an eye on those around you–there might be a connection you didn’t know you needed right nearby.
