AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)
Mysterious people born under the sign of Aquarius should start the year listening to the lovely-mysterious rhymes and sounds of Australian born musician Alex Cameron. Don’t miss the show of this sweetheart on the 25th of January if in Washington, DC, US.
PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
Starting from the 20th of February the punk contemporary artist and inventor Julius von Bismarck will present his project “Die Mimik der Tethys” (the expressions of Tethys) at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France. Always sensitive Pisces should find themselves at the exhibition dedicated to myths and the power of nature all swaying like the sea.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
Prepare for your next fight, Aries. But be sure the opponent is edgy and soft at the same time. Just like the music Connan Mockasin puts in your ears and souls. Listen to the latest creations of his on 21st of March in Melbourne, Australia. So who won?
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
Strong as iron Taurus will experience early summerish warmth and cultural noises visiting OFFF Festival in Barcelona on 25th-27th of April. The annual conference of visual culture, design, creative thinking and other good stuff is here for you to melt a little!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
The absolute gem of the art world in 2019 will shine brightly for Geminis. Venice Biennale will open the gates of its traditional venues – Giardini Garden and Arsenale – together with other beautiful spaces in Venice starting from 21st of May. Go with no doubt.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
These sappy lovers of little dramas will have to travel in 2019 – Cancers can choose backwards as they usually do, or using connected flights as many do. This time to Japan (except if the reader Cancer is already there, konichiwa then!). While in Japan visit this sanctuary for ramen, try it, and let us know which ones were the best.
LEO (July 23 - August 22)
Forget all the top-10-best-music-festivals-this-summer-lists and your crown for now, Leo. The actual good thing, real musical, creative and social experience that you need to attend happens in a small province of Lithuania at the end of July. Fingers crossed, The hiccup cure of Braille Satellite will fill an old mansion with its magic in 2019 too. TBA.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
Always serious and believing in “better done AND perfect” Virgos are invited to chill out for a moment. By Eddie Izzard - hilarious, sharp, and wearing a lipstick kind of a man. Choose your perfect date to attend Eddie’s stand up show in the UK on September.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)
Not sure if Libra or The Joker should be found as a more unpredictable figure. The first one is considering every little decision, the second one gives you shiver. But both will meet and exchange their special gifts since the 4th of October when Joker movie with the fabulous Joaquín Phoenix will hit cinemas.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)
The father of Fluxus movement, Lithuanian Jurgis Maciunas once told his fellow friend: “Never lend a TV to Nam June Paik, he always breaks it”. A real art legend, the visionary invites his also destructive Scorpio buddies to visit his retrospective of sounds and sights, reflecting our world full of new technologies and mass media at Tate Modern, London, since 17th of October.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)
Prague, Brno, Bratislava, and other cities in the Czech Republic and the Slovak Republic are waiting for the real winners – Sagittarius. The Snow Film Festival will take place in these cities until the first week of December and will fill the adventurous hearts of Sagittarius with ideas about extreme winter sports, polar exhibitions and mountaineering. Go surpass yourselves!
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)
While on their way to visit Santa Claus in Lapland, Capricorns are told by the stars to check out Kumu Museum in Estonia next December. Starting from the 6th of December the exhibition Creating the Self: Emancipating Women in Estonian and Finnish Art will be opened there. What a serious way for serious Capricorns to celebrate the end of one more serious year of hard work!
Stay consistent, follow all the tips given above to you by the stars and at the end of the year you might find out it went pretty well. Or even glorious. Or shitty. Just try some good stuff next year, and drop the line to us next December, how was it?!
