Whew, we made it! 2020 is nearly over, and we’re so close to better days. So, I think that deserves a round of applause. In anticipation for summer, Miss Fortune has decided to take a look at what’s in store for us, inspired by our celestial symbols.
In honour of the Ram, this summer you’ll want to be surrounded by grass; I hope you’re not allergic? You’ll be picnicking on Mt Eden, or perhaps stargazing in Devonport (I hope you know what else grass stands for? Because this just got on a whole new level). Whatever you do, you’ll be relaxed and thankful the year is nearly over! This week, your lucky number is 7.
It’s unfortunate that you’ll be steaming from the ears as exam prep melts your brain this week. It’s going to be hard to recover from that one. But just like the Bull, you’ll want to seek soft sounds and calming aromas. This means a trip to the gardens might just complete you. This week, your lucky number is 4.
Lucky for you; you don’t just get one celestial spirit, but two! The Twins are a blessing at most times, however, this also means double trouble. Your dual thoughts may get the better of you as concentration is key this month. But on the bright side, you’ll be the life at summer soirees with your multiple personalities. Your lucky number is 3.
With summer predicted to be one of the warmest yet, you’ll be in your element as you weave between the sea and the shore. The Crab has the ability to hide within small spaces, but you’ve been locked up all year and have had enough. Embrace the outside world and get some fresh air. Your number is 10.
Is the Lion the most awesome symbol ever? I’m sure you think so. This summer, there will be a desire to show off in order to make up for all that time in isolation. So, you’ll be sweating it out in gyms, conveniently placing your shirt in your waistband “because it’s hot”. Yeah, right. You’re better off just joining your fellow Crabs at the beach. Your number is 5.
Represented by the Goddess of Wheat and Agriculture… what does that even mean? Perhaps we’ll find you at some authentic markets with some French bread and a straw hat, simultaneously preaching that time you went vegan. Have you taken a look at yourself lately? Your lucky number is 12.
All year, you’ve felt the Scales have remained pretty neutral, but you’re beginning to feel bored (and you can’t be having that!). This summer, you’ll oscillate between the balance of what’s right and wrong. However, it won’t be ‘till after exams when questionable opportunities arise. Who’s gonna stop you? Your lucky number is 1.
In honour of the Scorpion, one of the most cliché ‘tough’ signs, you will have the desire to get a new tattoo. If you have some already, there’s no need to convince you as you’ve been ready and willing to get a new one for a while. If it’s your first… well, here’s the sign. Your lucky number is 12.
Undoubtedly the most awesome symbol (sorry Leo), the Archer has good things planned for you. Kick summer off by shooting arrows and drinking wine (or beer if you’d rather), at the one and only Waiheke Island. Soak up that summer sun and get involved in some day drinking, which is sure to make you forget the events of the year. Your lucky number is 22.
Spirited by the Seagoat, this summer you’ll tune back into your ‘water baby’ days and spend each waking moment by the shore. While this may sound like a good thing, you ought to stick to the shallows or risk being featured on the next episode of Piha Rescue. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Your lucky number is 13.
Represented by the Water Bearer… it almost sounds like you could be an Avatar prodigy. Guess you’d better fetch a hose and practice those water bending skills over these hot summer days. Oh, wait… the water restrictions are still in place, so you might have to do with a bucket (same difference, right?) Good luck young one! Your lucky number is 2.
Already, you’ve been picturing yourself on a boat this summer, blissfully relieved from what this year has put you through. You’ll engage in processes of self-reflection as you look in towards the ocean water, and see your spirit, the Fish, dancing in front of you. You’ve decided that 2021 will be a good year for you. Your lucky number is 21.
