Claire Barrow

Do you read your horoscope regularly?
No. Haha.

What star sign are you and do you fit the description?
Pisces, and yeah I fit it exactly. It's just like very emo. You feel sorry for yourself quite a lot but people put up with it because you've got something that they don't mind. And Pisces are very creative too.

Do you have any new years resolutions?
Not yet. I need to create a list first of what i'm grateful for. But last year my resolution was to be bolder with my decisions and collaborate with others, and I think i have done that this year very much. This year has been the year of collaboration for me, which has been really good.

What's on the cards for next year?
Now that I'm 28, it's about honing in on what i feel happy and comfortable doing. Because I got to sit and make this jewellery (featured in the calendar), every day and night I was working on it and it was great to actually be able to sit and make stuff, rather than all the other crap that comes along with that. Usually I'm stuck at a computer or running around producing things. So having the time to create next year is going to be really important. And I'm going to try to get to the stage where i can do that more often.

Is the year of the pig going to be a good year?
It depends what happens. It's so unpredictable about what's going to happen with the government, then there's global warming, natural disaster, I worry we've got something brewing. But hopefully there is a general spirit of progression. Maybe the best thing everyone can do next year is try to look out for other people a bit more.

Anne Sophie

What star sign are you, and do you fit its description?
I'm Taurus. One of the things that I love the most about my star sign is that in my astral map my Mars is in Capricorn. The higher quality associated with such positioning involves the idea of persistence, of willpower powerfully engaged in one direction, but also -- and often unconsciously -- of a belief that all things in my life need to be harsh, arduous and time consuming. This is not true, the fact is that I see to choose the most difficult paths, perhaps as a way of always proving the strength of my will. I love that Taurus is stubborn, so actually the moment I get something in my head, I will do it.

Do you read your horoscope regularly?
I am into astrology, not as much as I would like. I am Portuguese and I have a very strong connection with Brazil. In Brazil people are very connected with body and soul, and in the pursuit of self-knowledge astrology is one of the best ways to connect with yourself. I have been registered with a Brazilian site for many years. I check it, thought not all the time. But if, for example, I wake up extremely tired, and I don’t understand why, then I see my horoscope and it says something like: “Your Mars is in retrograde for the next 8 days, which means your energy levels are going to be low.” So, I adjust my life. Maybe I won’t exercise as much that week. Or I'll go early to bed every night to compensate.

What's the best thing that's happened to you this year?
Acknowledging that I don’t live unconsciously anymore. That I am present in everything I do. That my unconscious doesn't control me anymore.

Do you have any new years resolutions?
Oh yes! Loads! Learning how to save is one. Another is learning piano and actually studying more about astrology.

Are pigs the best animals?
Yes they are! It’s fascinating how intelligent they are!

What star sign are you, and do you fit its description?
I’m a Gemini, but half of my life I thought I was a Taurus! Geminis are a social butterflies, they love a great sense humour and love to make people laugh -- like I do. But I'm also workaholic AF, and very independent, like a Taurus.

Do you read your horoscope regularly?
I’m obsessed! I got co-star (the horoscope app on my phone), follow horoscope memes on Instragram, and read Susan Miller monthly.

What's the best thing that's happened to you this year?
It’s been a huge year of change for me! I started my own solo path after working in branding for many years. I did my first solo book — PZWORLD, published by IDEA, in which I got a chance to work with 55 amazing contributors like Virgil Abloh, Alastair McKimm, Ava Nirui, Martine Rose, Rombaut, D’heygere and many more great, talented people. The book launched in October at COMME des GARÇONS Trading Museum in Paris and is now almost sold out around the globe.

Do you have any new years resolutions?
You betta work-out bitch! Save money and be more organised in finance lol.

Are pigs the best animals?
Pigs are the best animal for luck and Year of The Pig is the best calendar you and everyone must have!

Kiyoko Odo

What star sign are you and do you fit its description?

My star sign is Aries. Some people say Aries are interested in everything, like children. Yes, I think I am like that.

Do you read your horoscope regularly?

I don’t really read English Horoscopes, but I’m interested in Japanese fortune tellers and I do like to do taro cards.

What's the best thing that's happened to you this year?

I think the best thing that’s happened to me this year is working a lots of people who I wanted to meet/work with.

Do you have any new years resolutions? For 2019 I want to definitely concentrate on exercise and keeping my body healthy and also my mind -- and also I really want to start pottery classes.

Are pigs the best animals?
I really love pigs, especially piglets.

Eloise Parry

What star sign are you and do you fit its description?
I’m a cancer. I’m happiest around water, I’m very particular about how my personal space looks, and I like to think I’m pretty intuitive... so I guess I’m a pretty typical Cancer.

What's the best thing that's happened to you this year?
I’ve spent a lot of time out of London, either by going to new places or being by the sea with my dog and boyfriend.

Are pigs the best animals?
I think my favourite animal is the dog, but I love pigs too -- they’re extremely sweet-natured and intelligent.
