Horoscopes for the month of January 2018

Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): January may kick off with a bang in the form of challenges when it comes to the job, career, and occupation, so you may find it wise to sit back and assess what is happening, and where to go from here. You may find that money as it comes to you from there is currently tight, and that if you’re not careful, this may impact your personal relationships. You may also find your emotions are out of sorts because of this. However, as the month rolls along, you may notice the challenges in the workplace remain, but love and money begin to roll along a lot better than before, and that overall you may feel more relaxed and in control.

Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): If you listen closely to your intuition, you may find the potential that comes in with January is amazing, especially as it pertains to your overall direction of life and the career, so it would be wise to capitalize on the opportunities you see. However, your temper may be shorter than normal, and you may find it wise to spend frugally. As the month goes on, you may see those opportunities dissipate into challenges, making the latter half of the month a lot more intense than earlier. You may also find it wise to take special care when it comes to your love relationships during the last two weeks as well.

Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): While it may feel like January has a communication hangover from the December retrograde, you may find that is the only challenge at the moment, so as January unfolds, you may find it wise to assess and plan for the upcoming year. As the month moves on, you may feel things are starting to line up, especially when it comes to love and money, and even though you sense they are coming, they are not there yet, so it would be wise to put yourself in a position to capitalize on what’s coming your way in February and early March. It is also worth mentioning that if you make some key adjustments, you can unlock a lot of business potential.

Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): Out of bounds emotions, and tensions in the workplace may be the two biggest themes to begin January 2018, so it would be wise to thicken up your skin and know that this too, shall pass. You may find challenges when it comes to your career and occupation, but also money through the job. You may also find challenges when it comes to your love life due to maturity being needed but not present. However, there is a lot of potential for business expansion if you apply yourself. As the month moves on though, you may notice the love life eases up at least, making everything else more bearable.

Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st): Short tempers and way too much energy may be two of the biggest challenges you face at the beginning of January 2018, but if you channel that information carefully, you may find you can make a lot of progress in the overall direction of life. However, it would also be wise to play things conservatively when it comes to your business and shared resources. As the month moves on, you may discover your emotions get tense, and that there are tensions present in your love life, so it would be wise to address what comes up when it comes up so it doesn’t build into something worse on down the road. For the whole month, it would also be wise to watch your temper.

Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox): If you bury yourself in your work, you may find a lot of good things can be created in your workplace and career. While communications may still be challenged after last month’s retrograde, you may also notice that by focusing yourself on your work, you can move through a lot of the potential disasters with ease and minimal issues. As the month moves on, it would be wise to ease up the emphasis on the long-term and focus on the short term instead. There is a lot of good money, work, and business potential present for the entire month, so the early bird may indeed get the worm.

Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): Challenges may abound in the beginning of the month, but the good news is that this is only occurring in a few life areas: the career, the occupation, the overall direction of your life, and your love life. So if you focus on the day to day, which may be irritating in and of itself, you may find you can navigate the first three weeks with ease and grace. As the month moves on, you may find things ease up extensively, and that in some ways, especially as it comes to your romantic relationships, there are very good things manifesting. You may also find that money begins to roll along a lot smoother, and while your communications are still challenged, you can sense they will be evening out soon.

Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): Can you say powerhouse month, Scorpios? If you’re on point and on your game, you may find so many wonderful things manifest, especially when it comes to business, the career, and where you’re going in life. Your intuition is firing on all cylinders, so it would be wise to listen to it when appropriate. As the month moves on though, you may notice challenges come with regards to the love life, and your day to day expenses, so it would be wise to take great care with both of them during the last two weeks of January.

Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): Person to person communication may be your desire for the first half of the month, but you may notice that you are in the minority of people that want this, so it would be wise to use that natural gift of gab to move forward in your occupation by helping you make the minor changes necessary to catapult you forward. As the month moves on though, you may find it wise to pay attention to details in the workplace but to also watch for good things coming your way with regards to the love life. You may also find an odd windfall of money comes your way from somewhere unexpected.

Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Happy birthday Capricorns! This is your month, and even though emotional tensions may be present, especially in the home life, you may find your career and business is not only moving along fantastically but also that there is a lot of room for expansion. However, there is a catch, and in this case the catch is stepping up, maturing, taking on more responsibilities, and demonstrating that you’ve learned from previous life lessons. As the month rolls along, a lot of the same good things in the workplace will continue, and while you may sense things slowing down in the near future, that will not occur in full force until February, making this the perfect month to move ahead full steam.

Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): Business and shared resources may have you agitated at the beginning of the month, but in this rare case, I assure you it is probably from too much of a good thing rather than a lack. As January begins, you may also notice a shorter temper overall, but that is present because of too much energy and not enough focus, so it would be wise to channel that energy into positive ways. You may also find you can make a lot of forward progress in your overall direction of life if you make the minor choices necessary. As January proceeds, you may feel things are taking a direction for the good, and you are correct they are, but if you stay focused on the day to day, you may find some small pearls of wisdom reveal themselves to you.

Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): The way January 2018 starts off for you is very similar to how it starts for Capricorns, but there are two huge exceptions. The first is that if you hit the ground running, you can capitalize on a lot of the same things, but if you’re lazy or distracted by your emotions, you may miss to long term potential present. Your intuition is on point, and there is a lot of expansion with regards to your business, so it would be wise to keep your nose to the grindstone as they say. As the month moves forward, you may discover things continue at this quick clip, but that it is now time to make some small adjustments when it comes to your love life and circles of friends, so it would be wise to adjust when you can, and to enjoy the rewards that come your way for your efforts.
