January 2021

Aries (March 20 – April 20)

You are not going to be able to satisfy everyone.  However, you are an Aries, so you eventually butt heads with everyone anyway.  This month is going to be a challenging one for you where you face some difficulties.  Keep your cool because things will open up.  Despite the challenges, if you pay attention, you can learn a lot.  You also need to be willing to change (or accept) the changes coming your way.  If you resist the changes, then that is when things get uncomfortable.  Some form of enlightenment will be coming, so pay attention and be sure to do your homework for when that time comes.  Don’t let your past define who you are as you can progress and move forward. 


THEME OF THE YEAR, Not everything comes easy, so work hard and do what’s right for you.

Taurus (April 20 – May 21)

Nobody likes being taken advantage of.  You may be susceptible to this because you are not seeing things clearly.  There are times you must put your foot down and rebel against the system.  If you don’t stand up for yourself, you will have to wait for someone to do that for you and who has time for that? You have to balance both growth and control to optimise your output.  You might be idealising things to the point that you are not taking action or just running around in circles.  Don’t drive with the breaks on.  Figure out why you are angry and let it go so you can move forward.  Remember, if you are not in charge of your destiny, then someone else is.

THEME OF THE YEAR, The same old isn’t working for you. Shake things up for the better.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

As a Gemini, you like to learn things, and you look to apply your knowledge.  The skill you have this month is that of a matchmaker.   No, you’re not going to set up your friends with each other but, hey, who’s stopping you?  However, one thing you have going for you is that you can see through most people’s nonsense.  Learn to use that energy to empower yourself.  When do you speak?  When do you act on matters?  These are going to be the decisions you have to make.  As per usual, what say will affect how things go down this month.  Sure, you can put your mouth in gear, but if you want to hook up with anyone, then you have to choose your words wisely.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Your choices decide your future. Be part of the decision!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Do you like surprises?  There are a few of them coming down the pike for you.  The month’s circumstances will challenge you, but if you can tolerate the changes in direction, you can react accordingly.  If you decide to take some counselling, this could be an excellent way to usher in the new year.  Changes are always necessary to keep you moving forward.  Some might be a bit difficult to get your head around.  Financial advice would definitely be highly beneficial during these turbulent times.  One tricky thing about this month is that if you want to amplify your presence on the stage, you have to get out of your shell and push your agenda.  Make yourself seen. Make yourself known.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Your values will be challenged. Learn to adapt but also to stick to your essence.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

You better clear your head and start thinking of what you want to accomplish this year.  You need to be open to new ideas and be ready to accept the new directions afforded to you.  I wouldn’t sit on your couch waiting for the lottery ticket to be delivered to you.  You will have to work for it.  You will feel people will challenge you for who you are, but maybe they are pushing you to grow.  Try listening to what they have to say because another point of view can be helpful.  Try asking questions if you don’t understand what they are saying, try not to get offended or get your back up.  You would best benefit from an exercise plan to keep healthy.  Don’t make it the two week New Years resolution plan but look to actually follow it through for the rest of the year – healthy body, healthy mind!

THEME OF THE YEAR , Revolutions don’t have to be destructive; they can be creative. Make things happen.

Virgo (August 23 – September 23)

What is it that you want to get this month?  Like going out for trick or treat, you only have to hold your bag out to get what you want.  While you may think this is something that comes easy, remember the hard work you have been putting into your efforts over the past few months.  This is what is paying off for you right now – one part hard work and one part luck.  Like a little child, take what you have and run with it.  Show it off as that will help solidify your position both at work and with your relationships.  There is nothing more you can ask for than that. You have to accept what you are given and do the work to make it better. 

THEME OF THE YEAR , A gift can get used and put to use or just put in the closet. Your choice!

Libra (September 23 – October 23)

You need to remember who your friends are.  If you put your glasses on, you can see who has been giving you a hand and who has not.  As Libra, you obviously know to reciprocate, but there are times you have to ask yourself if you should actually do so.  I want you to think about what is it about helping people and people helping you that has you trapped in a spinning whirlpool?  Take a step back to see if there are any co-dependencies.  I’m not saying there are problems but stop to understand if someone is pressing you, what the real issues are.  Watch your health this month as you may be susceptible to the flu or other immune system issues.  Exercise and eat well.

THEME OF THE YEAR , True change comes from within. If you force the revolution, then life goes your way.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

You will have to have some in-depth discussions this year.  It is a time to do some deep dives into learning what you need to advance your position.  It is about setting up a routine or regimen to allow you to make the most of what is to come in the first part of the year.  It might feel like a burden, and you have too much to do but try not to let your emotions get the better of you, and things will be just fine.  You know what is important to you and don’t waver from your principles.  Don’t take short cuts or put up with anyone’s crap.  Call them out on it and make sure they know why you’re doing it.  Doing so will put everyone on the same page and will maintain healthy relationships.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Who said an old dog can’t learn new tricks. Always advance.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

There are times when you just want to get away from it all.  The only problem is it might not be safe, or you might feel hindered. The holidays may have taken their toll on you.  Money will be on your mind, and you need to look to earn more by freelance work or be prudent with your spending.  A physical outlet might be what you need to break you out of that funk.  It doesn’t have to be pumping iron but regardless, get your body moving.  Be careful how you direct your anger because you might be causing unnecessary problems for yourself if it comes out the wrong way.  Smiling and being polite is the best course of action.

THEME OF THE YEAR , You know what you want, but you have to work to get it.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 20)

Watch what energy you kick up this month.  Your words hold the key to your world and if you feel like turning it upside down then put your mouth in gear.  You can do the same thing in a positive sense with carefully chosen words.  Only you have the ability to make the improvements you want to your life.  Be leary of doing things just because others are doing them or desiring what they have.  Make the changes in your life that are appropriate for your personal growth.  Growth and setbacks are part of life, but the difference is you can examine both and learn your lessons from them.  The biggest word of warning I can give you is not to take erratic gambles that will mess with your better judgment.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Learn from your ups and downs and make necessary, not whimsical changes.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Do you know how when you squeeze a balloon at one end, the air is forced into the other end?  If you feel you are being squeezed on one side, then move over to the other side.  It is not about avoiding the situation but rather about reacting and focussing your energy in the right place.  If you are wondering what is going on in your life, you have to do some self-reflection to ascertain the motivating factors.  Relationships will be a driving force.  I have been told relationships are there to act like a mirror reflecting ourselves onto ourselves.  Take all these issues and make sure you are primed to move forward and not get stuck in the same old patterns that make you think you are comfortable.

THEME OF THE YEAR , Growth comes from reflection and putting efforts into improvement. Make the change.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

While you may have been okay with COVID social-distancing, it is time to start socialising.  Your relationships may be a bit strained this month.  Remember, relationships are not a competition.  There might a struggle between what you find important versus what the other finds important.  There isn’t a right or wrong in this situation; it is just what you prefer.  If you were listening for the past few months, you should be ready to reap what you have sown.  If you had been working towards your end goal, it should be in reach.  Don’t be hard on yourself, if things don’t work out.  Just be more disciplined with regards to your approach.  Watch your health. 

THEME OF THE YEAR, You have to put in effort to achieve things, so don’t give up.
