Your Social Media Horoscope for February 2017
At Social Distillery, we focus much of our social media strategy on data and analytics but for 2017 we’ve decided to shift some focus to none other than the stars… What does your social media future have in store?
(March 21 – April 19)
A new month brings a focused and ambitious social media plan for you, dear Aries. Your “go get it” attitude will have influencers knocking at your door to #colab by the 3rd . Come mid-month, all of your hard work and positivity will lead to a substantial increase in organic followers as people flock to share in your passions. The 24th brings a pioneering attitude. Maybe now’s the time to finally sign up for the new music.ly app you’ve been hearing so much buzz about. After all, you’re a social star so go on and shine!
(April 20 – May 20)
Uh oh, dear Taurus, expect some troubling tweets to come your way at the beginning of the month. But don’t take a page from the Presidential social media handbook. Fighting back may land you in more hot water and cause a drop in followers, or worse, a fierce Twitter blasting from all sides. Maintain a low profile and you’ll beat the haters by the 10th. On the 20th be on the lookout for some #MondayMotivation to amp up your work week. Nothing says “you’ve got this” like a good meme.
(May 21 – June 21)
Dear Gemini, your gram game is on point! Expect an endless stream of double taps this month from friends, family and fans. On the 8th add your favorite quote or song lyric to your post to express yourself in new mysterious ways. By mid-month, take some time to repay the love. Discover new profiles in the explore tab and don’t be afraid to send someone you really admire a message. You never know which new person could become a friend or even a new love interest.
(June 22 – July 22)
A string of status updates from an old friend may have your head spinning on the 3rd, dear Cancer. Don’t let your emotions get the best of you. A stronger response may be to find a news article from a credible source to share rather than ranting back. The 14th will be a day or endless emoji heart eyes. Show your sweetie how much you care by snapping your favorite memories of them all day long. After all who needs a dozen roses when you can give them geofilter flower crowns. At the end of the month pack up your selfie stick and head out for a solo adventure!
(July 23 – August 22)
It’s time to take a good long look at your posts lately. How many of them have been selfies, dear Leo? Your friends may enjoy your #ootd and #vibes posts but your feed could use some new, less egocentric material. By mid-month you’ll be ready to show off those #squadgoals. Gather your friends for an impromptu night out filled with laughs and plenty of snaps. On the 23rd expect to feel a little down. Check out a fun profile like @dailyriggins to turn that frown upside down.
(August 23 – September 22)
We’ve got three words to describe you this month, dear Virgo – All The Likes. You’re a creative force to be reckoned with, so watch out world! On the 8th be ready for someone to challenge your status update. Prove your dominance and you can say adios to that troll for good. Take your time to proofread before clicking publish on the 13th. You may be in a rush but remember, Tweets can’t be edited. On the 27th expect a DM from a secret admirer.
(September 23 – October 23)
Relationship status changing love is in the air for you, dear Libra. Try to avoid Facebook at work or you may find yourself lost in your new sweetie’s timeline rather than meeting those deadlines. By mid-month you may be feeling some FOMO. After all, while you’ve been posting #datenight updates, your crew has been having plenty of fun without you. Let them know you are ready to get the band back together with a sweet #bestie post honoring them.
(October 24 – November 20)
You can’t ignore it any longer, dear Scorpio, you and #bae are not ok. Expect the first half of February to be a make or break time in your relationship and don’t be surprised if you end up celebrating #SinglesAwarenessDay and updating that old Tinder profile on the 14th. Luckily, the 22nd will bring just the positive pick me up you’ve been needing – #NationalMargaritaDay!
(November 21 – December 20)
Are you a budding influencer, dear Sagittarius? If you’re not, you’re about to be! The stars are aligned for some serious engagement. Expect a big-time regram on the 2nd that will send your likes, comments and followers soaring. Get outside on the 8th for some winter weather inspiration. Any creative blocks will be lifted and you’ll be back to your posting paradise. At the end of the month do some social housekeeping. Why are you friends with your high school teacher’s best friend’s cousin anyway?
(December 23 – January 20)
It appears you’ve let your resolution’s slip, dear Capricorn. Are you feeling guilty about making those series of promissory posts now? Don’t be! Take some time on the 1st to reaffirm your resolution in 140 characters. Then take it a step further and pin that Tweet to the top of your profile with pride. On the 13th your Instagram feed will be a neverending series of inspirational photos. It’s not coincidence, it’s fate. At the end of the month, you’ll be in the sharing mood. Gather your favorite #tbt and #fbf pics.
(January 21 – February 21)
It’s the second month of 2017 and you are just hitting your stride, dear Aquarius. A series of gifs will give you the giggles on the 2nd, followed by some seriously funny memes on the 3rd. Sharing what makes you laugh will bring you loads of love from friends and followers so don’t hold back. Get excited for the 14th because this year will be filled with nothing but ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️. Wrap up the month on a high note by pinning plenty of healthy noms.
(February 22 – March 20)
Love is love is love is love… for you, dear Pisces. At the beginning of the month you will be focused on helping others. Jump on @gofundme to see how you can share your giving spirit on the 2nd and 3rd. Everyone knows you’re a hopeless romantic, so be prepared for a rush of spectacular inspiration from the #VDay posts that will fill your newsfeed on the 14th. No matter your relationship status, you’ll find a way to surprise and delight those near and dear to you with sweet pics and kissy face emojis. At the end of the month expect to receive a humbling comment from a social media hero.
