It will be a strange start to the year where you will be faced with disagreements from people around you. It’s a difficult decision to make when you have to weigh which is more important to you, upsetting people or sticking to your beliefs. It will pay to stick to your guns even though things are going to feel heavy and lead to utter heartbreak and disappointment. The decision you take will certainly pay well in the long run. Following your emotions and instincts to carry on with the rest of the month will be key. Carry on working on your goal which is to become independent and someone that can be relied on. Avoid being reckless but be more aware of any potential shortcomings before you take each step. Be prepared is the motto to follow. You are guided by your intuition as to how you can make things happen in the third week. You finally begin to see things shifting. You can afford to take things easy by the end of the month. Balancing your time with work and play and also proper planning allows you to have things moving along productively as you enjoy the fruits of your labour.
IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
This first month of the year, you begin to question yourself on the direction your life has taken so far and where do you intend for it to take you in the coming years. You may regard this as a decluttering of the mind and your belief system and lift any obstacles that might be in your sight to make happen what you wish to see happen. It’s expansion time. Doing bigger and better things which may require more out of you than it did in the past. You are at a time in your life where nothing will faze you and your inner strength is at its peak. Expect to travel, take on new studies or even accept a role that you would not otherwise do.
Year Ahead (January 2018 – December 2018)
Quite a number of challenges lie ahead in the coming year. It’s all very focused on your efforts to see success in your path. It might be the right time to review the how rather than the what you wish to achieve. It does seem you have got things in perspective but just face obstacles in getting what you want. The first quarter appears to be full of hard work, a test of your inner strength and your level headedness. Detachment is very important when it comes to making crucial decisions this first quarter. If you feel you haven’t got the authority to make these decisions then seek help from someone who is in authority. The struggle somewhat continues into the second quarter, sticking to the old conventional ways and what you have known for a long time or what you feel so accustomed to might have to change. These old ways are going to displace you out of the competition. So to stay ahead you certainly need to review your methods. Something clicks in the third quarter, you find a match to what you would like to do and what you feel is out of your comfort zone. It might mean you will need to start right at the bottom and this doesn’t sit very well with you. But it’s important that you get your foundations right if you wish to face the competition that is out there. Things do fall into place in the final quarter and you finally achieve breathing space. Your worst nightmares are over. After searching for the right fit, you are in a place where you can finally monetise your efforts.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
You achieve a healthy relationship with your finances this month. There is good inflow and outflow. However, having to juggle things or having to do more than one thing to sustain the inflow doesn’t leave you very happy. Life becomes very one-sided and there isn’t much time to enjoy the other aspects of it like family time or having a hobby. It’s probably time to make a decision to create more balance so you can get to enjoy the fruit of your labour.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Self-realisation puts things into perspective this month. Your feelings of being an underachiever are really created by yourself. It’s time to work on self-love and trust. It takes a bit of work but you realise it’s a very important step in moving forward. The biggest obstacle has been in listening to your inner voice and trusting it. The more you do this the more your self-confidence will be raised. Your direction begins to take shape as you start to see that you become what you think. Taking control of your self-beliefs becomes ever so important in establishing what you stand for.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)
You are getting close to completing your achievements. Maintaining your optimism as well as seeing things from a perspective you otherwise would not will be essential to completion. Your can-do attitude is at its peak as you feel you getting very close to the end of seeing the results you have been striving to achieve. If you feel stuck in anyway, remember to hit pause to reflect and do not allow your over eagerness to get the better of you. This hurry could just be the cause of you having to start right from the beginning all over again.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
Family is your focus this January. It might seem that you have finally won over your family by showing how you understand and relate to what they are thinking and feeling. It’s hard work to get to where you have and being able to enjoy good quality time with them. However, you soon learn old habits die hard. Perhaps you are meant to be the black sheep after all. And maintaining harmony with them doesn’t last very long. It might just be time to understand that caring for them from a distance might be the healthier option. A different mindset from your family’s doesn’t always make you a troublemaker.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
It’s kind of your way or no way at all this month. It will be hard to get everyone to be in agreement with you. It might be worth coming up with alternatives. It is going to be up to you to decide if it’s worth forsaking everyone just to do what you feel is the right thing. A bit of tweaking perhaps is all you really need to change everyone’s sentiments to get them on board to see success. There is no such thing as the right or the wrong way this month. It’s all about what fits you at this time in your life.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Whatever comes down must go up. So with any bad situation you have to realise that things can only get better from now as the worst has already taken place. It’s a chance to recognise that a new cycle in life awaits. Always move forward with your heart. Don’t doubt your inner direction for once. If decisions are a little difficult for you at the moment, it might help to stop over analysing and trust those inner instincts instead. Do not close off your heart because of a mere bad experience but keep your options open.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
It is a time for creating a balance between your intellect and your dreamy side. There is absolutely nothing wrong with dreaming. Because it is only through dreams that our goals are realised. Weigh each idea or inspiration with detachment. It’s tough trying to create a balance between the two. But through this all, you will learn to trust your own judgement on matters concerning your journey in life. Maturity and level headedness concerning your dreams is the key to achieving them this January.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You are finally being recognised and granted an opportunity to showcase your abilities. You waste no time in charging forward to deliver it. It is important to you that you make full use of this opportunity to shine. However, the advice is not to act in haste. Think through the consequences before every action or you will be putting yourself in a spot. You might be faced with very tricky decisions during this process so be sure to slow down to weigh the pros and cons before you proceed with any action.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
‘Stop clinging on to your past!’ will be the message to take in this month. While it’s all nice and rosy before, what may have worked in the past may not necessarily work in the present and future. It is sometimes best to accept that things will never be the same and that new memories will have to be created. Leave the past in the past. It’s going to be a positive wake-up call where you will begin to see things moving in your life again for the better!
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
2017 has been a whirlwind of a year for Aquarius. You finally arrive at feeling a sense of completion. Everything feels well in every department. You are nicely stocked up financially, family life is happy, your career or business is flourishing and your health is in a good state. You can give yourself the chance to wind down while everyone winds up for the new year. Enjoy your time reflecting on the past. Revisit your home town perhaps or a time in your past where you were the happiest. Get yourself all recharged and inspired opportunities in the near future.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
It is going to be a high powered month this January. No time is wasted in getting things on the way. There are plans for expansion. You are a bit weary of the slow pace of 2017 and wish to speed up the process of achieving your ambitions this 2018. Plans for expansion can include travel, picking up a new skill, studies or perhaps just treading where you haven’t before. You are in for a shock to the system and will not give up till you see results. Be aware of not turning into a demanding tyrant. You don’t really want to be losing those nearest and dearest to you through this process.
