January horoscope: Find out what destiny holds for you for the rest of the month.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
It’s a high-spirited and exciting time of the year for you. If you play your cards right you may win the love lotto this month. You have to be present to win the prize, though. Acting cool and keeping your distance is thus a disqualification.
This month’s memo: Get involved.
Birthday wish: True love.
PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Mars sails into your sign on the 12th, energising your imaginative and receptive side. Tap into the magic and let your artistic juices flow. Be mindful that daydreaming on the job is likely to sabotage your chances for success.
This month’s memo: Be creative.
ARIES (Mar 15 – Apr 19)
Kick-start 2015 with clear intentions about what you want to achieve during the forthcoming year. Hasty decisions and biting off more than you can chew during the first week of January is a danger. Remember Rome was not built in a day.
This month’s memo: Cultivate patience.
TAURUS (Apr 20 – May 20)
Family gatherings and social activities may leave little space for doing much else this month. It’s bound to be a time of great pleasure and enjoyment, but watch out for overdoing it. Indulgence robs the pocket and builds the hips.
This month’s memo: Everything in moderation.
GEMINI (May 21 – Jun 20)
It’s time to look further and perceive wider. Find ways and means to expand your horizons, whether through studying, reading, travelling or exchanging ideas with others. Allow time for possible travel delays from the 21st onwards.
This month’s memo: Expand your views.
CANCER (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
A healthy lifestyle should top your list of New Year resolutions. Make time on the Full Moon of the fifth to reflect on the year you’ve left behind. Release what belongs to the past to create space for the present, whether it’s habits, emotions or people.
This month’s memo: Live in the moment.
LEO (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
It’s time to party and have some fun. The embers glow brightly in your love life this month, making it an opportune time to spoil your partner with red roses and candlelight dinners. If single, Cupid’s arrows may find the mark.
This month’s memo: Love is in the air.
VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Since the workplace is in the spotlight this month, you’re bound to have your hands full. Self-perfection is an unobtainable goal, so be happy with the fact that your best is good enough. Make sure to back-up your files before the 21st.
This month’s memo: Don’t worry, be happy.
LIBRA (23 Sep – 22 Oct)
Your planet, Venus, moves into a compatible air sign on the third, stimulating your need for social interaction. With leisure and pleasure the predominant flavours of the month, this bodes good tidings for sharing quality time with your friends.
This month’s memo: Appreciate your friends.
SCORPIO (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You’re moving into a phase where building your assets takes precedence. These include material as well as spiritual and emotional resources. The goal this month is to balance the need for private time with pursuing work objectives.
This month’s memo: Find the balance.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Opportunities to get involved in neighbourhood activities and projects abound. Although this may curb your freedom, it could fulfil the quest for meaning. Be watchful of your open hand lest others take advantage of your generosity.
This month’s memo: Be eagle-eyed.
