January 2020

Aries (March 20 – April 20)

It feels like you are going to be burying your head in your work.  You don’t have to do it alone.  Don’t be afraid to ask for help every once in a while because while you might think of it being a sign of weakness, it is not.  Things are easier with help.  It is like playing a team sport, but you are trying to make all the plays by yourself.  When things get too hard, you will be disillusioned with the results you are getting.  Teamwork makes things run smoother.  Despite the burden, and even if you do get help, you may find that you are going through a significant transition.  You will understand soon that if you embrace the sense of transformation and let time be your teacher, you can make something good for all. 

THEME OF THE YEAR , Lead by your knowledge and not by your sheer force. Be the smart car, not the bulldozer.

Taurus (April 20 – May 21)

Hey Taurus, why don’t you proudly display your signs of affection to those close to you?   Show people your sensual side so you can have a different philosophical outlook on life.  Look to learn what is happening the world around so you can advance your own wellbeing as well as those around you.  Try to eliminate your fears of moving around this year so you can embrace the world in which your life.  Listen to the words of your teachers and those you look up to so you can enhance your soul.  Don’t fear God!  That is nonsense.  Embrace her intention so you can be transformed into the person you want to see yourself as.  Embrace change!  Embrace revolution!  Embrace yourself.

THEME OF THE YEAR, Go off to see the world, expand your horizons and venture beyond the fence posts you have laid out for yourself.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

If you choose to go after someone, be ready for some losses.  I get that you have to stand up for yourself and I recommend that.  However, there are ways to do it that don’t result in blowing up your own home as a result.  In the story of Tyr, Norse god of war, he made a sacrifice for the good of all but he had to give up his arm.  A typical tale of real warriors.  So, I will let you decide how far you want to go.  Some animals will puff up to let others know that they are serious and can avoid conflict in that way.  On another note, why is all this coming up for at this time?  Maybe you are starting to change but you want to hang on to your old self?  Look deep.  Do a shamanic quest.

THEME OF THE YEAR , You cannot achieve your dreams if the way you do things isn’t working.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

We are all students of life, and at times we also take turns at being the teacher.  This month you need to focus on being the pupil.  There are some teachers around you that you need to listen to.  It will be a very spiritual time if you just open your senses to what is going on around you.  The butcher, the priest, or the neighbour can be people who can dispense knowledge and wisdom.  As you move through the month, you will gain more confidence as you understand the world around you a little bit better.  This will allow you to become the teacher but don’t let things get to your head.  Just avoid drinking the Kool-Aid, and keep an open mind.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Inspiration can come from many places, keep an open mind and go for it.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

You can’t dwell on the past.  If looking forward looks too far then just focus on a few steps in front of you to get you going, at least in the right direction.  You might be overburdened with work, and you might not be paying attention to what is going on.   Things will probably be changing and you have to either learn to adapt or you have to let go and move on.  There are plenty of openings out there if you just stop being so rigid in your approach.  Look to relationships to help you out of that quagmire you find yourself in.  Having someone around to give you counsel and guidance will make things easier.  Learn to battle your inner demons instead of others.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Look for the fun in the hard work the year will bring you. Be more Zen.

Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

You will have to pay attention to where you are going.  You may be going towards a head-on collision.  Somethings can be avoided with proper planning, not taking chances and calculated risks.  That is the thing for you this month.   You are all about the thrill and having fun but also you may be taking unnecessary gambles with the situation.  That might be part of the thrill but as the 70’s TV cop Beretta used to say “if you can’t do the time then don’t do the crime”.  I’m not suggesting you are going to get into seedy situations but consider the risks of what you’re doing.  You might have to deal with people who are all emotional and remember that you cannot save everyone.

THEME OF THE YEAR , You may feel good about yourself but don’t overestimate your capabilities.

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

If you are going to put on a show then why don’t you make it a good one?  The only thing I don’t want you to do is to put on the show to let your ex or you the person you most detest see that you are still harbouring resentment.  You have to let that stuff go because the more baggage you have to carry with you, the more the airlines of life will charge you.  Learn to pack your baggage onto a carryon bag, not four trunks of excessiveness.  Focus on how you want to be as much as the representation of how you want people to see you portrayed.   What that you don’t give in too much to shoddy dreams.  Focus more on the mentally satisfying projects.

THEME OF THE YEAR , If there is one year where you have to dump the crap, this is the year. Be you.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

We all have to succumb to authority at some point or another.  Rules are what they are, and you need to be creative to either break them or just work within them to get what you want.  One thing that will help you along this month is that you need to study and do your research with your peers.  Caving in is not something that Scorpios do without bringing everyone else down with them but then again why bring things down.  Use your resourcefulness to build things up from the bottom.  Others might be relying on your knowhow, so help them along and yourself while you’re at it.  Remember, it’s one for all and all for one, musketeer.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Collect the knowledge and wisdom that will make you grow and leave the sitcoms for the dopes.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

If you are attracted to shiny objects, then this is the month to go for them.  Well, if you have a bit more of a practical approach, then that is good too.  You have the opportunity to make substantial gains.  Use your social skills and sweet-talking abilities to turn situations around in your favour.  Allow radical ideas to ferment into the practical approach that will help you get what you want.  The one word of warning is that you try not to bowl people over and stomping on people’s toes.  Pay attention to those around and observe how they react.   Family issues might develop when you are not paying attention.  Don’t act now but wait for the fog to clear.

THEME OF THE YEAR , You can be concerned about your material wellbeing without being materialistic.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)

Time to get those creative juices flowing.  You will have double the opportunities to use your skills, but unfortunately, you don’t have double the time.  You will have to give up on somethings to accomplish what you need to do.  Pay attention to the subtle messages coming your way.  That might be difficult to do with your head in the fog of multitasking.  You have a lot of energy going your way so make sure you put it to use and don’t squander the opportunities given to you.  Just push and persevere to get what is essential to you.  If you choose to take a gamble, take the creative and unique approach rather than a straight approach, it will play out better for you.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Learn and take action in order to make things happen.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

As the Rolling Stones song goes “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you can get what you need.”  Don’t look at your losses as a defeat.  Sure, we try to achieve goals and try to be at a certain place by a certain time in life, but things don’t always go as planned.  Sometimes what we truly want from life gets clouded by the messages of the mainstream media.  So you don’t have fluorescent white glowing teeth!  Who cares!?  What is important is that you are in good health: mentally, physically, and emotionally.  Strive for that rather than more stuff or having to have a particular role in the company or the best grades.  Keep up your social charm as that will be half the battle for you.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Learn to let go of the things that anchor you. Learn what freedom is.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

There are times you have a pulse on what is going on in your life as well as those around you.  It is almost like you know it is coming even before it happens.  This can come in handy if you want to avoid situations where you know there could be issues.  Try not to be emotionally dependent on others or use emotional tirades to get what you want.  Instead, this is an excellent opportunity to plan for the future and layout plans where goals and objectives can put into concrete form with an end goal in sight.  Embrace the moment and the power you have and don’t shy away from the responsibility because you will have the fortitude to pull it off.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Anything is possible if you are ready to put the hard work into it.
