ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
You will have so much on your social plate this January that you won’t know where to start ... or stop. Every friend and even some acquaintances, want a piece of you. This is not a bad thing Aries but you will have to make some tough decisions about what you need to forgo and into what you should immerse. Once you have decided, get totally wet!
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
You may think that you are readying yourself for some downtime or even an early retirement but not so fast, Taurus. Career options heat up to a rapid boil and you might find yourself more in the belly of the corporate beast and less on your belly on a calm beach. Take every opportunity as it comes. Some may have unexpected perks. Or is it jerks....?
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Get out of your usual routine this January and travel. You have been too cooped up and myopic, Gemini. Seeing the world with fresh eyes will be refreshing. If time and budgets are tight find ways to expand your world view in cheaper ways. Maybe an esoteric class? Or a foreign film? Or even a spicy meal in some strange neighborhood? Whatever gets you going.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Open yourself up to new possibilities and deeper personal connections - both physical and psychological - this January. Cancers may find that they are attracted to older, wiser or more established (read: rich) love interests. And why not? They say it is as easy to fall in love with royalty as it is with a serf. But I actually think it is easier.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Your relationships are ready for a reboot this January so make a new years resolution to do better and be more present in any one to one interaction. Leos enjoy being the center of attention and adoration but it is a good idea to spread the good vibes around. Who knows? You may find that you wield more influence as the power behind the throne than on sitting on it.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Starting the new year with a new health regime may be your ticket to success Virgo. Whether that means starting a new diet, getting to the gym more often, running a marathon or something stress reducing like yoga or meditation, is totally up to you. The important thing is to start somewhere. Try to get into ship shape for cruise season. Ahem.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Party season doesn’t have to stop at New Years, Libra. In fact it can continue for at least another month. So don’t poop out while the music is still hot and the drinks are still cold. Find new avenues of entertainment and bring your posse along. Or try something artistic and creative. Get your juices going without getting too squeezed.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
There is too much to do around the house this January so plan on being closer to home than usual. Scorpios need to map out their domestic agenda and see where they can make household improvements. Do your research and ask advice from the experts. Soon you will have the perfect crib where you can be babied. Hot tub or personal sauna anyone?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
January is the month to get the word out on any deeply important personal project or initiative. You will not only have a willing and eager audience, you will also be able to magnify your opinions and move things forward. Sagittarians like to make strong personal statements. Do you want to shake the world? Just be careful of the aftershocks.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
If you are compiling your new years resolutions this January be sure to include a section on your finances. It is time to get serious about your money Capricorn. That means saving, investing and planning for the future. Many of you are already on the road but there are still some of you that need to get going. It is never too late to start a nest egg. Sit on it until it hatches.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Aquarians are in the center of the action and cannot help but become the social directors of 2015. Get your new year in gear with a range of fun events that get the influentials within your sphere of influence. Launch new projects, meet new people, put forward your new ideas designed to create a new, magnetic you. You will move the tides and defy gravity.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
There is so much going on behind the scenes that you can be forgiven for feeling a little paranoid. But you don’t have to worry. ANything that seems hidden or mysterious will soon make it self apparent to you. In fact you may have the opportunity to gain the upper hand in a highly political situation. Be a bit mysterious yourself Pisces. Keep ‘em thinking!
