January 2024

Aries (March 20 – April 20)

If you are as good as you think, you have to prove it to those around you. You might see group dynamics change on you, be it you wanting to leave or making changes to power structures. Take a look at your emotional responses when you deal with other people. You could be tainting what is going on now with things that happened in the past. Sometimes, a fresh start is needed to put things in perspective. The new view can allow for a way that leads to success that would not be reached if you stuck to the same course. Move forward.

THEME OF THE YEAR, Seeing the forest through the trees will let you create your reality.

Taurus (April 20 – May 21)

You can’t sit still in life, or things will just happen around you. This month will focus on what you believe in, making you re-evaluate what is important in life. The focus of your philosophy will come from either your worldly experiences or just the news of the world. Expanding your life view will allow you to shine above the rest because you’ll bring in a fresh perspective. Pay attention to subconscious feelings when you feel life is getting you down. Try to get some exercise and make healthy eating choices, as that will aid in keeping you in top form.

THEME OF THE YEAR, Old hurts don’t have to hospitalise you. In fact, you can become stronger.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Watch that overzealous views do not take down a road of isolation. Everyone understands that people have convictions, but most don’t like them shoved down their throats. That said, you will be full of insights and new ideas to advance your position. However, it shouldn’t only be confined to thinking or talking about it. You must take action if you expect things to move ahead. Embrace the individuality you create for yourself, as you can be exceptional at what you put your mind towards. Then, the reputation you want will follow you.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Put your nose to the grindstone, and the rewards will pay off in the long run.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

What is it that you want to do, and what direction do you want to go in? If you take the fork in the road that steers you to your dreams, you can make the most of matters, even if they are not the end goal. Watch for arguments with your partners, as that won’t lead you anywhere except disappointment. Learn from greater minds than yours to see where your ultimate path lies. It is not that you have to emulate them, but rather to learn from their actions – right or wrong. Change the things you can in life, and learn to accept the rest. Happiness isn’t the end – contentment is.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Maybe the future is predestined, but you have the ability to fill in the colours.

Pluto in your chart tells you how and where transformation will come from?

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

Do you think your dreams will come true just because you’re working hard? Think again, my feline friend. Life doesn’t just hand you a silver platter because you put in a few hours of overtime or because you did the dishes. This month will teach you that you have to plug away and work at your dreams. Double time, triple time, but without expecting rewards or compensations. The rewards come in time – what do you think life is – a Tim Horton’s drive-thru? The universe will judge you accordingly; sometimes, it feels unfair. Stay true to your aim, and that is a reward unto itself.

THEME OF THE YEAR , You don’t know it all, so stop to listen as you might learn something

Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

Cuba Gooding Jr famously shouted, “Show me the MONEY!” in the movie Jerry McGuire. Well, get ready to react similarly if you want people around you or your boss to show you the money. Well, maybe not to that extreme because you could be shown the door instead. However, if you put your head down and work hard, you will see some results. Try to get in on the dating scene if you are single or if you already have your special someone, then go out for romantic outings. If neither is an option, try the convent this month. Make the most of alone time.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Break free from the details and look at the vast universe before you.

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

You can learn from anyone this month. Your closest allies are the ones who will benefit you the most if you put past feelings aside—approach this month with eyes wide open. There will be a treasure trove of wisdom your allies can disseminate. Embrace your creativity, whether it is cooking or accounting. Although I’d watch the creative accounting, but you know what I mean. You don’t always have to do things that please others. You can venture into the realms you have not explored before. You have to break a few eggs in order to make an omelette.  

THEME OF THE YEAR , Sometimes you are your best teacher if you don’t latch on to your hurts.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Scorpio is the sign of transformation; for those born under this sign, transitions and adjustments are par for the course. For you, it is a survival tool. This month, the seeds of change are being planted, and they may be coming from someone close to you, asking you to grow. The urge to move or give yourself a makeover will be a driving force. These changes are not superficial, like buying a new style of jacket. You have a lot of mental energy, so why not take the opportunity to enrol in a new course of study? Why not sign up with a friend?  

THEME OF THE YEAR , Watch your spending this year, as you can go overboard.

the seven-year itch is related to Saturn cycles?

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Don’t think that just because you know something, you know everything. You sometimes have to dig a bit deeper. With the journey to find things out, you can look at things in detail, giving you a productive edge. While it is okay to hope and dream, if you want something, you need to put a plan together to achieve it, but only after careful consideration on whether you really need it. Why get a convertible when you live in Nunavut? Look to make your possessions give you the best bang for the buck. Look to up your exercise regimen.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Using charm, quick thinking and knowing when to speak will yield success.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)

If you can put on the charm, then make sure you wear it like deodorant. While you typically are a straight shooter, this month will require some social Aikido will be necessary to get around the BS coming your way. Being on your toes will be of benefit. You need a social break this month, so at least if you are prepared, you can enjoy some free time. Freedom from your own responsibility will also be necessary. You are your own worst jailor. Taking a break in your neighbourhood can give you more insights than glamorous and expensive foreign insight.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Our thoughts shape us. Allow those thoughts to make the most progressive you.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

When one has the ability to tackle imaginary foes for a realistic outcome, one should use that ability. Something empowering is going on for you this month. Being empowered is not the same as brandishing power. It means you have the ability to take matters into your own hands and make the outcomes you desire. Look to learn and teach from a place of calm wisdom. Look for the necessity of action and meaningful direction in your life. Don’t act from a place of being wounded but rather from a place where you can make a difference for yourself and those around you.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Achieve your goals by learning to make necessary adjustments along the way.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

Working hard and staying focused can be difficult when you’re a fluid double fish, but it will be necessary. You will be asked to get disciplined or organised, but it will take some planning. You are the sign that has a pulse of everyone’s soul, so with some planning, you can embrace that to make the best of the month ahead. You know what people want, and you can give them what you want with some adjustments to your approach. See how far this will get you if you do it. It is not about deceiving people but working to the best of your ability to move yourself forward.

THEME OF THE YEAR, Discipline is necessary to achieve your goals and rely on partners as they can help.
