January 2017 Tarot Forecast
It’s going to be quite a charged up first month of the year. The advice is to rev up the engine when it suits and slow down when it feels appropriate to do so. And everything should just fall right into place. Like everyone the start of a new year brings with it a list of resolutions. The idea is know what is it that you really want to achieve rather trying to achieve something because it will mean you will have something to show to others. Begin with your finances in the first week. Make unbiased decisions as much as you can. Anything that uses your emotions is going to be far too risky. To preserve your finances take only calculated risks and you will be assured of success. You might be in need of some rest and relaxation before you take things up a notch come second week. Look after your energy levels when you can so you can fire up when it’s needed. Go full steam ahead and don’t look back with your ambitions. Of course practise balance, patience and moderation when it’s needed. Discontentment or wanting to perfect things in your environment drives you to take control of matters and steer them in the direction that you want. It’s the perfect week to go charging ahead. But be warned rushing won’t necessarily guarantee the best results. The focus shifts towards your family and relationships during the last week. Whatever issues that you may be having seems to be ironed out. You realise you had drawn yourself into a box. When you do step out of this box and decide to step in the other party’s shoes you shine a very different light on a self-imposed dilemma. It’s not so bad conforming to another’s ideologies if it brings back harmony to relationships.
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The start of the new year doesn’t quite pan out the way Capricorn would like it unfortunately. Be prepared to experience heartbreak and deceit. It might come as a shock or it may be something you were feeling for sometime but wasn’t able to confirm your instincts. But i say better for things to reveal themselves sooner than later. The good thing is you don’t seem to dwell on the unfortunate for too long. You take this as a learning opportunity and flip the situation to your benefit. Your acceptance of bad things or situations are part and parcel of life and make you a stronger person certainly lifts the black cloud off everything.
Year Ahead (January – December 2017)
The focus for the year ahead seems very much centred around career, business and finances or simply on how you view life itself. Extremely focused Capricorn is not one to sit around and wait for things to happen but you like to be in the driver’s seat of your life. Fantastic attitude to have and your discipline can be matched by no other zodiac sign. You are embarking on a new project come first quarter. You like the adrenaline and rush of creating something with your signature and that is exactly what you will do. A new you seems to be emerge through this process by the end of the first quarter. However, don’t get too caught up with things and end up neglecting your loved ones. It will be a testing time as the second quarter comes around. Results might be slow to come but you will definitely get there. So if you feel like a new skill or education or training is required then go for it. Learn whatever you need to get where you want to be. A celebration looks like in order as you approach the end of the second quarter. Take time to recuperate and catch up on rest as we enter the second half of the year. Energy levels might feel a little low so to charge yourself up take a well deserved vacation or a spa retreat. As you rest and relax, you will be pleased to know that all your efforts would have fallen into place and rewards will be ready to reap. By the last quarter of the year, expect to have dealings with a regulations authority or be the one to lay the rules and regulations to get things in control. It’s not like you have let things out of sight but it just got a little top heavy so delegate if you need to. Your worries are laid to rest somewhat when you see that things aren’t as bad as you made them out to be in your head. You hold things together rather tightly throughout the year and never let things slip out of your sight. So expect to have an extremely productive year ahead but take time to be kind to yourself at the same time!
