January 2021 Tarotscope

Time for fresh goals and intentions..

It’s the first month in the new year. Time for resolutions and a fresh set of goals. This January will be a time of fine tuning things you are already working on or digging into new ventures. Use your power and authority sparingly. Remember the double edged sword. Power when put to right use can bring its benefits, abuse it and you could be in an undesirable place. Being a new month of the year, you can’t help yourself being ambitious. Learn to prioritise things, and delegate when necessary. You may make bad decisions this month, don’t spend too much time fretting and regretting. Learn from it as quick as you can and move on. It’s a great month for creating synergies. You could collaborate or tie up with someone for business which could add value to what you can offer. It will be the best way forward if you wish to grow your business. 


Happy Birthday Capricorn!

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You are in the best place you could ever ask for in terms of career success and financial freedom. However, all this success has brought about envy and competition that has made you rather disappointed. It’s brought you to a place in your life where you are now questioning what is honest and what is fake. The lines have blurred in the throes of your success. There is a need to get your perspectives right. Be open-minded and welcome competition instead of feeling insecure. It’s a good way of seeing what others have thought about that you missed out on. And pick on ideas that you can take and use for yourself to grow. Competition is always healthy, without it we will never grow.

Aries (Mar 21– Apr 19)

You need to make some changes this month if you want to achieve some results quickly. Let go of a mindset where you feel you are incapable because you lack the knowledge. It is always possible to teach an old dog new tricks – so never say never! If you have never dabbled with stocks and shares it doesn’t mean you should never get into it. You can always pick up some tricks of the trade. The key is never to be afraid of the unknown. Lay a plan, be methodical and detailed and you should be on your way to achieving your goals. 


Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

A change of plan is needed this January. Work out what your priorities are and work on laying down long-term plans. There are some things where you just can’t expect quick wins. The results won’t last. Take the time to lay a meticulous plan. No more shortcuts. Face the nemesis and do not run and hide. Or push it to someone else to deal with it. Remember it won’t be the last time you will be faced with this situation if you decide to avoid it this time.


Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20)

January is looking like quite a stressful month for Gemini. You may find yourself carrying more responsibility than you signed up for. If you are a new parent, you may be feeling overwhelmed by this new found responsibility so much so it is making you want to escape your current position. You may also become a carer when something unexpected happens to a loved one. Or you may just be feeling so dissatisfied with your career because the amount of responsibility is outweighing your compensation. The natural instinct is to run and hide to escape your situation. But you need to apply a more logical approach to your situation rather than an emotional one if you are going to work around your stress this month.


Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

It’s time for family, togetherness and security this month. If things have become unpleasant with family or people that you deeply care about from your past, you will find these relationships entering a time of healing. It must however, begin with you taking the first step towards this healing process. You may have avoided this in the past for fear of you not being in control of the other party’s reaction. But it feels like it’s going to be now or never. Establishing and maintaining harmony will be one of your goals this 2021.


Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You have a choice or a decision to make around your work this January. The work environment is turning competitive. It could even turn toxic when your colleagues begin to turn against you or begin to feel jealous of your promotion or praise. You begin to feel excluded from the work environment as a result. You could choose to ignore the situation and let them carry on with their sour grapes attitude. If things are too much for you to take then you can make the decision to move on. The ball is in your court really. You create the situation you want to see happen in your life.


Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

January will feel like the calm after a storm. There are many directions to take. But don’t get too overwhelmed with choices. Remember to have your feet on the ground. It can be easy to get carried away. Go with what you stand for and what your beliefs are. You need to think about the long-term repercussions of making the decisions you need to make this month. It’s not something that can be rushed. You need time to weigh the pros and cons.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

It looks like there is a pleasant surprise lurking around this January. For some time, you have been facing disagreements which you haven’t been sure about how to deal with. There is a lesson to be learnt in all of this which will become obvious this month, and that is to practise empathy rather than applying logic. Sometimes, all people really want is to be heard and understood even though their arguments may not be valid. Just the act of making them feel like what they have to say matters. So tune into their emotions rather than approaching things in a cold and logical manner. You will be pleasantly surprised and how the dynamics of the relationship move away from one being aggressive to a calmer one.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It’s a great month to be embarking on new projects. You are in a month that anything you take up will most likely lead to success. However, try not to get ahead of yourself. Take time to pause and reflect rather than jumping into things without thinking it through. There will be a tendency this month to charge ahead with that fire in your belly. Hold on before you do. Do your research and trust your intuition at all times especially when things don’t make logical sense.


Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The start of 2021 calls for patience and moderation. Time will be spent on reflecting on past conflicts. It’s time to reopen the doors to your heart. Move on from relationships that you feel cannot be mended or make an attempt to be the bigger person to try to nip things in the bud. The goal for the year ahead is to lead a more calm and balanced life. So you begin by moving forward this month by managing your temperament and emotions with past grievances.


Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Not thinking through your actions thoroughly could turn out to be a very bad downfall for you this month. Money is always a motivating factor but you need to be careful when it comes to communication. You are very good at arguing your point so prepare your argument well if you find yourself in such a situation. The key is to be meticulous and methodical. The pressure is on. And you will be observed how you manage the pressure to deliver what you have promised.


Pisces (Mar 20 – Apr 21)

You experience the demise of a creative idea this month. Just because of the opposition you are receiving all around. Instead of playing the victim or giving up completely on your vision. Revisit the drawing board. Cast your visions further afield for inspiration. Try and try till you get it right. You may not always be well received by everyone. Perhaps you will need to trust your instincts on this one and rely less on others’ opinions.
