January 2019 Tarotscope
With the new year in tow, instinctively we begin to make plans and resolutions, hoping to see them to fruition by year end. The first month of the year does leave us feeling very optimistic about our material goals. We kickstart the year by resetting our self-beliefs and what we stand for. It’s important we get our tune right first thing in the year. This will allow us to set the foundation and begin to plan prudently. The focus is to seek your passion, what you believe in, and hopefully turn this into something profitable. To have the best of both worlds would be to love what you do and get paid for it. Getting your finances in order either with the help from someone who is an expert in the subject or learning from past mistakes is the focus in the second week. Naive ideas and thought process make an exit and in its place comes more structured and organised ways of proceeding. As if there aren’t enough things to deal with already, by month end expect to come to terms with any emotional disappointments and experience a purge or release of emotions that you have held on for a while. We become more emotionally balanced by the end of January.
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Things are looking more upbeat then they were than the month before. There is a sense of clarity and certainty about your direction. Optimism replaces pessimism. It’s a case of what goes down must come up and you are definitely moving onward and upward this January. You aren’t particularly sure of everything. Some situations remain unclear or you feel people aren’t really what they claim to be. None of these things faze you because you are entering a time of peace, love and calm. You are learning to trust that everything will happen for the highest good. What is meant to happen shall happen and there will be something to learn from every situation be it good or bad.
Year Ahead (January 2019 – December 2019)
The year ahead is all about testing your mindset and the strength of your will. You will kickstart the year with a feeling of lack and inadequacy but will blossom into someone with great optimism and unbreakable belief in yourself by year end. It is a year of self-growth and cultivating resilience in any form of adversity. I suppose the most readily available method of measuring your self-worth will be by how much accumulate monetarily. This is something you might have had issues with and will be the first obstacle you overcome. By the end of the first quarter, your perception of your self-worth shifts. Money no longer becomes the only measure but the intangible value of family and work life balance becomes your measure instead. There is further emphasis in letting go of the need to accumulate shiny new objects to demonstrate your power and value in the second quarter. Your difficulties with finances and your relationship with finances will improve. But this will involve making an important decision in the third quarter. Most of the events of the year will seem to lead to your relationship with your finances. This is because that’s all you have ever known about measuring success. Realisation will take place that there are other ways to measure success. For example, by how you are feeling emotionally and mentally. You may not be the most wealthy person by the end of the year but will certainly feel more empowered detached in your outlook towards your material and physical possessions.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Your perspectives and approach to what you see as abundance changes this new year. Your appreciation of life takes on a much more multi-dimensional approach where you take in more of life by engaging more of your senses. An accumulation of material wealth will no longer be a measure of how abundant or happy you are with your life. Instead, simple things like the smell of morning pancakes or having roaring laughs with your family over a game of Monopoly take precedence.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
The decisions that you will make this month will set the tone for the rest of the year. So take your time with them. It’s a good thing to be in a position where your emotions aren’t going to rule those decisions. The environment will be uncertain and at times things or people will not be what they appear to be on the surface. The decisions that you make will revolve around career choices or business possibilities. Find something that suits your current climate and where you have the resources available to see things through. Having all the right ingredients will set you up for the year ahead.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
Life has thrown you lemons and without fail with your resilience you have made lemonades. This year is not different. No challenge will be too big for you, no obstacle too complicated and no difficulty big enough to wear you down. Your stamina and appetite is raring to go. You have not seen optimism like this in a while and it feels good to be feeling this invincible. You will embrace new beginnings head on. It is going to be a case of jumping into things first and worrying about the how later. Not a recommended method but it seems to work for you.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You are in for making big changes this new year. Balance is what you will strive to achieve. For a long time, you have always done what kept others happy. You sacrificed what made you happy or your ‘me’ time for others. This January you kick start an effort to seek out a creative hobby or just invent creative ways to take the load of yourself and to begin to learn how to share your responsibilities. The result is more time for yourself. And getting to do the things that make you happy or just pampering yourself.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
You are definitely in a position of wealth and it’s all thanks to your wise and prudent financial decisions made in the past year. However, the question is, will holding on to material wealth enrich your life further. The answer is yes, if you invest in things and opportunities that deliver an experience where you get the chance to learn new skills or knowledge which opens your mind. It isn’t going to add anything to your life if you have it parked away. This month, you embark on a journey where you seek to be a figure of authority in a particular topic of interest and find yourself investing your money for that very purpose.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
It’s not the time to resist change and expansion. You have been holding back for a while maybe because you have felt inept of taking the leap. Circumstances will certainly push you if you aren’t being proactive this month. There is no more room to grow horizontally. It’s time to grow upward and onward. You can’t possibly take everything on yourself. Be truthful and discerning about where you see your future heading if you carry on as is. Relinquish all fears, you can be assured the midas touch is yours this January. Seize this opportunity to grow and you will only find success if you do.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
There is prosperity, harmony, happiness and abundance in all areas of your life. Not something you would expect to have in your life all at the same time. But you seem to have been gifted with it this new year. Life has come full circle and your life is bearing fruit after a year of struggle and a lot of questioning. The key to all of this is the realisation of trusting yourself and your instincts and loving yourself in any circumstance. If you can find stillness and gratitude in whatever situation you are in, be it happy or sad, you will have discovered the art of being true to yourself. Your energy is the magnet for the situations you face in your life. This will probably be the most valuable lesson you will take with you through the rest of your life.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You begin the year on a perfect note with your finances. Your relationship with money is in the best place it can be. You aren’t hoarding and understand that a flow of exchange is necessary. You are in a position to help and will seek help if necessary and understand that there is no shame there. You learn that you can’t put a price tag on your health and your well-being in general. Shying away from pampering sessions or a full health check will become a thing of the past. This change in perspective is something of a work in progress but you are at a very good vantage point this January to realise what further improvements can be made to your relationship with your finances.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
It isn’t a very easy emotional start to the New Year for Sagittarius. But the important thing is that this is the month where you face up to your past disappointments and hurt. You have reached rock bottom and it’s enough of that and time to pick yourself up and dust yourself off. You put an end to all emotional struggles and find ways to cope with the unhappy events from your past. Not the easiest thing to do but it’s the perfect time to face up to your demons at the start of the year.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
It’s the beginning of laying a new foundation for yourself. You move yourself forward with great focus and determination very conscious about making a change this year. Wanting this change hasn’t come out of nowhere but from a lot contemplation. You will realise that a change is in order if you would like to feel more abundant in your life. You may not necessarily action this change yet but will work towards putting a plan together to get to your destination.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
The first month of the year, puts you in a position of questioning your quest for wanting more in life. Is chasing something bigger, shinier and better going to be how you will lead the rest of your life? Or should there be a stop to this at some point. You are certainly feeling a little drained by ‘the bigger and better’ syndrome. point. What you really do need to do is to start appreciating and sharing your material wealth. A realisation kicks in that there must be much more to life than just attaining. And so begins the journey of slowing your pace and stopping to smell the roses.
