January Snoozescopes with Angie Banicki

Snooze Scopes Horoscope

Feeling the rush of the new year? Slip on your coziest Lunya, slather on an ultra-hydrating face mask, and answer those emails tomorrow, because it’s time for some self-care restolutions (think: all the ways to help you feel Good in Bed).
Here with your roadmap to guide you toward more me-time and bedroom bliss, we turn to famed Snoozescopes astrologist Angie Banicki. Get enlightened on how to serve your highest (and snooziest) self, then don’t feel too guilty for postponing dinner with the in-laws. This year, you – and your rest – comes first.


ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Influenced by PAGE OF CUPS

One smile has the power to….calm fears, soften stone walls, warm a cold heart. Invite a new friend, mimic a loving hug. Beautify the bearer. Lighten heavy loads. Promote good deeds. Brighten a gloomy day. Comfort a grieving spirit. Offer hope to the forlorn. Send a message of caring. Lift the downtrodden soul. Patch up invisible wounds. Weaken the hold of misery. Act as a medicine for suffering. Attract the companionship of angels. Fulfill the human need for recognition. Who knew changing the world would prove so simple? - Richelle E. Goodrich

Aries this month for you is a month to really give some effort to detaching from the problems and finding the joys. The best way you can do this is to focus on bringing joy, even the little joys, to those around you! New friends, new romance, new sparks are flitting around you for the taking.  Let yourself feel the connection with some new energy this month. And when you feel the spark, spread the spark. You know what I’m talking about – smile at a stranger, buy someone a ‘just because’ gift (Lunya?), send a friend your favorite book. Spread the sparks! Feel the sparks. Spread the sparks. Repeat.

Sleep mantra: Be with the light. Be the light. Be at peace. Let it happen.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

Influenced by PAGE OF WANDS

The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.  – Jimmy Johnson

You are on an internal journey this month, Taurus. This inner journey is going to have a physical expression that is going to be a fulfillment of your destiny this lifetime. So do not avoid these small steps that are leading to something quite huge in your life. I have chills as I write this.  Perhaps your inner work is being validated in your dreams. Don’t be afraid to take note of what you are being shown there! And watch your waking dreams as well. Like now may feel hazy and soft and heartfelt like a dream. STAY in that space. Clarity and sharp concise plans and steps come later. For now be in the clouds. Be in the fog and float there.

Sleep mantra: I now choose to surrender any fear or doubt about my ability to succeed.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20)

Influenced by ACE OF SWORDS

Comparison is the thief of joy. – Theodore Roosevelt

You are in a transition zone in your life and relationships Gemini. This moment is going to open up so many opportunities for you. Choices you make now have the gravity to take you down hugely important paths. Your most important work this month is to take every chance, every risk that means choosing YOUR happiness. This is a very karmic turn for you and will feel like you are beginning a whole new lifetime. Don’t worry if it all doesn’t make sense yet what this all looks like. You are a newborn seeing the world with new eyes! Go listen to The Oh Hellos!

Sleep mantra: There is perfect harmony, perfect beauty, perfect creativity awakening with me. I will serve from there.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Influenced by TEN OF SWORDS

Beauty is the illumination of your soul.  – John O’Donohue

Breathe Cancer. Can you just breathe this month? Breathe and give it all to the creator, to your soul. There is WAY less to do than you think. You are letting go of the pain your mind has been holding onto you, holding you back. Space is being made to welcome in so much more into your life. Need a personal day? Take three. Your wellbeing is what matters most now. No worries about everyone else, just you! Silence and solitude are your best friends in January. Turn to them and let yourself be held there. Baths and bodies of water will reconnect you to your soul as well. Buy yourself a new bathrobe or some fun bath salts. Then dive in.

Sleep mantra: I trust in the wisdom and grace of the universe to help me keep the faith!

Picked for you:



LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

Influenced by SEVEN OF SWORDS

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder.  Help someone’s soul heal.  Walk out of your house like a shepherd. – Rumi

The universe is trying to bring you quite the gift this month Leo. Just relax and be open to receiving now. Your gift may be more abundance, more love, and an answer to a prayer. Or perhaps your gift becomes the magic of realizing more of your inner gifts to share. Whatever it is, I have a feeling you’ll be surprised at the shape and form it takes. A gift from heaven. A little P.S. – if you happen to have a trip or travel show up for you, go. Let your mind wander outside of itself in a new place.

Sleep mantra: I accept with full trust and gratitude the spiritual gifts flooding into me now.

Picked for you:



VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Influenced by THE LOVERS

If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine.  It is lethal. – Paulo Coelho

Love. Love. More love. Is all I get for you Virgo. Love is overwhelming your orbit now.  Let it come to you in all its forms. Many of you may see this in the form of a child or your children.  Some of you may find you are meant to meet someone now who is going to change your life forever. Love is your magic. Love brings you your magic. Let love overwhelm you. It might feel like too much or not now. Do not stop the love that wants to be with you now. Keep opening yourself no matter how scary. This is a big part of your growth Virgo. I promise it will be worth it.

Sleep mantra: I honor myself. I honor my truth. I honor how I’m led to express my truths. (Try sleeping naked!)

Picked for you:



LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)


I wish you the courage to be warm when the world would prefer that you be cool. I wish you success sufficient to your needs; I wish you failure to temper that success. I wish you joy in all your days; I wish you sadness so that you may better measure joy. I wish you gladness to overbalance grief. I wish you humor and a twinkle in the eye. I wish you glory and the strength to bear its burdens. I wish you sunshine on your path and storms to season your journey. I wish you peace in the world in which you live and in the smallest corner of the heart where truth is kept. I wish you faith to help define your living and your life. More I cannot wish you except perhaps love to make all the rest worthwhile.  – Robert A. Ward

A seed is being planted sweet Libra. This seed is showing you how your life will be changing in ways more than you might have imagined. Your work now is to see how you can be an individual while in a relationship. How are you seeing how your most important relationships are showing you how to be more of yourself within them? How are you taking care of your needs first while still being able to be there for others? Life is supporting you in this work now. Lean into your divine feminine. So take a deep breath and dive in.

Sleep mantra: I am supported through the shock of the new and what that brings to me for my growth. I welcome you with unconditional love.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Influenced by STRENGTH, RX

Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: I’m with you kid, let’s go. – Maya Angelou

Time to be at one with your dark side, Scorpio. Yes you heard me. Go there. Deeper.  And then leave what’s heavy behind. Do not let those fears infiltrate your mind. You are finding a new way of being at peace with yourself, Scorpio. And that means letting go of the fears of your mind.  We have to break you out of that mind though and it could feel scary, but I promise the other side is lighter and brighter and more beautiful than you could ever imagine. Letting love overwhelm those fears is going to open up your perspective to see so much more truth in the world Scorpio. This is a super power. Get ready to own more of that knowing – of yourself and of others. And really take care of yourself through this process. More sleep this month. More healthy meals. More downtime. Take care of yourself!

Sleep mantra: I am releasing all fears I have associated with seeing the truth. I am allowing myself to open up more. I am letting myself see my inner vision.

You don’t have to do this. You get to do this.  – Tom Kubis

Opportunity is knocking, Sag. And your cards scream YES YES YES! January is showing you into the castle of your dreams. Get your butt in there and dance. The thunderstorm in your mind is finally clearing and you are underneath the rainbow of a zillion colors. Your cards are the most magical I write today. There is a glow of energy lifting you up and you just have to allow it. Put the storms behind you and choose to step into this life. Also there is a strong surge of planet earth, mother nature pulls for you. If you are not yet involved. Get to it. Go plant a tree. Start that garden. Find a cause that speaks to you that works with the environment. Your glow now can really make a difference for the planet. Get to it.

Sleep mantra: I release. I let go. I open my heart.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)


Your work is to discover your world and then with all your heart give yourself to it.  - Buddha

See your child self, Cap. Let’s start there. Can you go hug that little one. Turn off the dark thoughts that started there. Throw them out and hug tighter. You’ve held on for too long. It’s time to stop carrying those painful memories and old stories. You are discovering who you are meant to be outside of what that little one thought was expected of him or her. You are now your own teacher. You have your life experience and all your lessons to be your own teacher, your own guru now. This month is your rite of passage. Your initiation. What will your inner guru have you do first? Listen!

Sleep mantra: I release all beliefs stored in my body that are belittling or minimizing myself out of fear or ignorance. I choose to be bold, big, and bright!

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Influenced by ACE OF CUPS

An entire sea of water can't sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship.  Similarly, the negativity of the world can't put you down unless you allow it to get inside you.  – Goi Nasu

The pains and negativity you have been holding onto placed on you intentionally or unintentionally by others – those pains are dissolving now Aquarius. You are freeing yourself from the negativity that was never yours to begin with. As this pain dissolves, you will begin to see the gifts show up to replace the pain. This month for you is about filling your heart from within. Take yourself on a date. Write yourself a love letter. Buy yourself a gift (Lunya?!). I have chills thinking about how good this will feel for you!

Sleep mantra: My light reverberates shame, fear and doubt. Only divine truth, light and love enter my energy field. I am held in light.

Picked for you:



PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)


Love the life you live.  Live the life you love. – Bob Marley

Sweet creative soul, Pisces! Your knowing of what the world needs now is at an all time high.  So open up to your higher mind now. What is it telling you? What are you being guided to do, to write, to create? Go make it happen. This is bigger than you. And you’ve got this! You might be thinking – that’s a crazy dream. I don’t even know why I wrote that. Uh yeah – that’s the thing.  Go do it. Get in there. You aren’t supposed to figure out more than to just go for it now. We need you to go for it. And if you are questioning what you’ve already done to this point, just be at peace and follow that higher guidance now. Bring that sh*t into form. I feel like spirit is writing this through me to make sure you hear loud and clear! Share your creativity with us!

Sleep mantra: I open myself to receive new ideas and inspirations.  I am empowered to bring my ideas to life!
