Sun Sign Predictions – January 2018

Aries

MAR. 20 to APR. 19  

Do something spiritual for New Year’s. Float candles in paper boats; each one a symbol of where you’re headed. Make a vision board. January to May is time to accept the changes of the last seven years and move on. We only live in the present. An offer you can’t refuse comes in on the 5th – 10th. Look honestly at expectations and it will work out over the next two years. Be a freedom fighter on the 12th – 15th, but know there is no freedom without responsibility, which is clear on the 17th – 31st.

Taurus

APR. 20 to MAY 20   

Welcome the New Year with enthusiasm for the simple life from January 1st – 3rd. Reactivity in relationships opens the door to a massive opportunity for reconciliation between you and another or even inside yourself from the 5th – 10th. Align with the changing landscape that 2018 will bring. There is no other place to be. After January 17th, hopes and plans for the future gather light. Infuse them with your common and cosmic senses.

Gemini

MAY 21 to JUNE 21  

Messy expectations just before and during New Year’s are only a problem if you are a perfectionist. Humans were not made perfect. The right friends love you no matter, and you are glad of them from January 2nd – 7th. Time for cleansing and healing from the 8th – 13th. All things social beckon in the best way from the 17th – 20th. Respect your fears and learn more about sharing between January 24th – 28th.

Cancer

JUNE 21 to JULY 21   

January shows you a truth about your relationship. If what you see is not what you want, consider if it’s time to leave or get some counselling. It takes two. As long as you are both committed it can work out. The strength of love, yours and your beloved’s, is strong from the 5th – 10th. Words matter and truth must be spoken from the 19th – 28th. Don’t trust just anyone on January 31st.

Leo

JULY 22 to AUG. 22   

A dream on the 28th helps you deal with the past. Think of it as a New Year’s gift. It may take until January 2nd to fathom. Serious people who think they know you better than you know yourself are exceptionally annoying from January 5th – 13th. Possibly they possess a grain of truth. Still, it’s your life and no one gets to boss you around, not even Dr. Know-It-All. A little oxygenation in the form of your social life arrives from the 17th – 31st. Have a good time whilst keeping your feet planted in terra firma.

Virgo

AUG. 23 to SEPT. 22  

The truth about a relationship dawns on December 28th, just in time for the New Year. Carry this awareness through the holidays. The idea of speaking truth is often prettier than the actual experience but, as we know, there is no reconciliation without truth. Speak yours from January 3rd – 10th, even as you listen to the truths of others. The unexplained, unexpected needs of others intrude upon your sense of life-as-it-should-be from the 23rd – 31st. Time to embrace the ‘full catastrophe’ in all its glory.

Libra

SEPT. 23 to OCT. 22   

The New Year shows you, from the 1st – 6th: Your ambition, who’s challenging you, and what you want. Your guiding planet, Venus, is not visible in the sky at the moment so if you feel disoriented don’t worry. She’ll be back. Disruptions from the 13th – 15th test your resolve but won’t defeat you. You’re at it again by the 17th; possibilities are everywhere.

Scorpio

OCT. 23 to NOV. 21  

2018 arrives with encouragement in the direction of writing, teaching, and learning. Alternatively it might be time to connect or correct relationships with siblings. No getting away from it. Cracks and chasms open up on January 12th – 14th but you won’t fall in. Possibilities come from the wings starting on the 17th. Take advantage of your leadership qualities from the 24th – 31st. It’s how you clear the way.

Sagittarius

NOV. 22 to DEC. 21   

New dreams take you into the New Year from the 28th. January brings gifts; give a little, get a little. Discomforting dreams from the 5th – 8th are not what you think. Interpretation is necessary. Passion is unleashed on the 9th. Don’t get greedy. It’s not about how much you can get, but what’s worth having. Resolve to make effort toward sustainable choices from the 17th on. Values are the basis of economics. Be guided by this on January 23rd – 26th. From there you have energy for creative tasks.

Capricorn

DEC. 22 to JAN. 19  

Start the New Year with friends who ‘get’ you. Be amazed and let that amazement change the way you thought you were going on the 5th – 10th. Go off by yourself and crunch some numbers from the 18th – 25th. Unanticipated, unruly events or people show up between January 27th – 31st. Remember this bit of wisdom, ‘If it’s in the way, it is the way.’

Aquarius

JAN. 20 to FEB. 18   

2018 calls you to put your wellbeing front and centre. To do this from January 1st – 3rd you must think about how you live, as in what you eat, how you move, and your daily habits. Stand up for your truth from the 4th – 10th. No one can force you to face your fears but once you do, they shrink. Continue to ponder what cannot be seen by the naked eye from the 11th – 15th. Retreat and wait for the light of day to return from the 17th – 20th. It’s your world. You relate with vigour to the people in it from the 26th – 31st. Stay aware of your inner world even as you do.

Pisces

FEB. 19 to MAR. 20  

The way forward opens more easily if you look for spiritual guidance from December 27th – January 7th. Bow to that which shows you truth. Journey on January 8th – 10th knowing you are supported, be you stranger or tourist in this chaotic country we call life. The power of suggestion is strong from the 23rd – 29th. Restrain the urge to click or send. Spilled milk and/or sick pets distress you on the 29th – 31st. Are they distractions or fingers pointing at the need to make adjustments to your life?
