Capricorn 12/22 – 1/19
Although Mars and Jupiter are out to get you this month, Saturn will do a fantastic job of shielding you. But by far the majority of your positivity will come from The Black Moon who really has taken a shine to Capricorn in January. Much of your significant events and issues seem to focus around your social life this month. Even your potential work problems will occur because of something you said or did while on a work’s night out. Try to stay professional, but if it’s too late, apologise if you offended anyone and laugh it off as you letting your hair down if you didn’t. Likewise, your relationship will be put to the test due to silly arguments and jibes around your social life. Maybe one of you dislikes the other’s friends, or you don’t agree on what you do for fun. Whatever it is, recognise this for how unimportant it is and try to find a way past it.
Aquarius 1/20 – 2/18
Mercury and The Sun are having a little squabble over who can give you the most light in January. While this might sound great at first, it could result in neither of them giving you the light they’d intended. At work there is the very real possibility that someone will, or at least try to, steal your ideals and pass them off as their own. To make it doubly harsh, for any Aquariuns who work with family members, you need not look any further for the culprit. Be prepared to stand up for yourself no matter how much this hurts. For those people, this will spill over into your personal life and cause arguments and tensions in your family. For others, your work life will still bleed into your personal life, maybe because work is taking up all your time and attention. Explain where you’re at right now and ask your partner and friends to be patient.
Pisces 2/19 – 3/20
Jupiter is taking on the role of your protector this month, while Mercury is has nothing but positive energy to flood your house with. If this sounds like a dream situation, don’t get carried away too quickly. It does mean that, although any rivals or competitors you have at work will try to work against you, your protector won’t let them succeed. However, the fact remains that these people want to cause you problems and you will have to face them at some point. Likewise, in your personal life, you’ll find out that one or more of your friends wants to see you fall, and while they won’t succeed in bringing you down, the sad fact remains that they want to. Through all of this, your girl has your back, and with her help you can work out a way forward.
Aries 3/21 – 4/19
Due to the positions of Mars and the Sun, influencing your professional life, and Venus influencing your personal life, January looks like being a month of two very different worlds for Aries. Your work life will be uneventful. Some of you will have almost half of the month off anyway, and for those who don’t nothing of note will happen. Especially if you work as an employee with no real responsibility, expect a quiet time! Your personal life couldn’t be more different, and not in a bad way. For those Aries who are single this is the perfect time to go out and have fun. January is your playground. But Venus has plans and whether you’re looking for it or not, love is coming your way. If you’re in a relationship you’ll experience a deeper connection and a loved up start to the year.
Taurus 4/20 – 5/20
While Pluto and Venus are busy having a battle over your love life in January, Saturn will sneak in and take control of your work life. This means the success you’ve been experiencing lately is set to continue. While you shouldn’t expect any major leaps, January is all about setting up your success over the next few months and laying foundations for some major blossoming. Unfortunately your personal life won’t be as straight forward. Whether it’s because of or in spite of your busy and blooming career, your relationships have cracks in them. It’s not certain if this relates to a lover or a friend, but betrayal is on the cards. If you suspect anyone of jealousy over your success now is the time to deal with it. Try to understand what’s going on and talk things through before you react.
Gemini 5/21 – 6/21
Jupiter and Pluto don’t often work on the same side in the house of Gemini, but when they do you can expect trouble. The good news in January is that Mercury is ‘clearing up’ behind them and will do its best to set any mess straight again. If this sounds confusing, it is, and you may well find you get used to that feeling this month. Your work life will be plagued by annoying inconveniences that aren’t serious but could drive you insane if you let them. At home it’s the same story, niggles and minor arguments could turn into something bigger if you don’t take some deep breaths and stay calm. Remember, nothing serious is going on here, just petty frictions and frustrating annoyances. Keep smiling and you’ll come through on the other side.
Cancer 6/22 – 7/22
Mars and Jupiter are going to swap sides in January, meaning while you win with one hand you lose with the other. The Moon is going to do its best to keep the bad effects to a minimum, but the rest is up to you. With Jupiter trying to throw you off course at work, the important thing is to stay true. Don’t abandon a project because you think it isn’t going well, but see it through and stay focussed. If you switch to something else now because you think the grass is greener, all you’ll find is a field of mud. In your personal life you’re going to feel confident and free. While in most cases you should run with this feeling and do the things you want to do, if any of that might be hurtful to anyone else you’ll quickly lose the support of The Moon and it could end in disaster. Be considerate of other’s feelings, even if it’s someone you don’t know.
Leo 7/23 – 8/22
While Mercury is usually the bad guy in the house of Leo, this January it’s turning coat and bestowing you with light. This means opportunity and lots of it. What you do with this is up to you, but you can be confident about your abilities and know that you are capable. With Mercury onside in your work life you shouldn’t turn any chances down. Now is the perfect time to take opportunity by the horns. All this will have a curious effect on your personal life. This positive energy that’s flowing around you will result in heightened senses, invigoration, fantastic sex, and all round happiness within you. This is the perfect time to take a trip, spend quality time with your girl, party with friends, and go out with your family.
Virgo 8/23 – 9/22
Neptune will try to cast some negativity at you in January, but it’s no match for Mercury who is strong this month and feeling generous towards Virgo. Your greatest advantage will be in your ability to get ahead of everyone else. This will be most useful at work when your colleagues and competitors are returning from the holidays quite slowly. You’ll feel energised and positive and can spring into life faster and with more zeal than anyone else. In your personal life you might feel as if things aren’t going quite as well. It may not be going exactly as you’d planned, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t right. Stop and think over where you are and what you want. Any doubts you feel about your current situation are likely to be spot on.
Libra 9/23 – 10/22
With The Sun strong in the house of Libra this month and Mars and Venus both feeling positive it looks like being a harmonious and happy time through January. The first ten days of the month you’ll feel like nothing is happening at all and that the year has started on a limp note, but a slow start often wins the race so don’t be disheartened. Live in the moment and count your blessings, if everything is stable nothing bad is happening. Now is the time to bask in the light being shone on your house and let yourself relax and be happy. Striving for more is always good, but sometimes you need to stop and smell the roses.
Scorpio 10/23 – 11/21
Mars has decided to turn a spotlight on Scorpio this month, meaning whether you like it or not, January will see you being the centre of attention. Exactly what this means for you depends on your life situation, but you should expect all eyes to be on you in one way or another. On the face of things this looks like being a very productive and rewarding time for you. Your work life is presenting you with some fantastic opportunities and chances for financial gain. However, you will feel under pressure to make decisions and these offers come with a time limit. Because you’re so busy at work this month, your home and family life will suffer. Your partner and family will say they understand, but recognise the strain this can put on your relationships and do all you can to make it up to them.
Sagittarius 11/22 – 12/21
It looks like Mercury is fighting hard in your corner in January. Mars and Jupiter are both in a bad mood and want to cause you problems, but these angry planets can’t seem to get through. At times you’re going to feel as if you need help from those around you to see you through problems, and while it’s always a good idea to seek help when you need it, you can feel confident in your own abilities right now and know that you are capable of succeeding on your own merit. Similarly, in your personal life you’ll feel as if there are problems brewing and issues ahead where there are none. These feelings of inadequacy and paranoia are to be expected, but try to take a step back and empower yourself with positive thoughts and affirmations. These negative feeling won’t amount to anything and will pass.
