In a situation where romance and finances are a priority or putting one before the other with a list of responsibilities, separation, or choosing which direction you need to go is best for you. The concepts can seem like a tug of war, and “damn if I do or damn if I don’t.” If a heart-to-heart conversation is needed, then, by all means, do so. Don’t beat around the bush. If you want to propose to someone or perhaps call it quits regarding a career, a relationship, family affairs, or stepping out on your own to start your profession, then do so. Just make sure you have something to stand on and hold you over for the next 6 to 9 months. It’s about concentrating on you now. “Pursue what catches your heart, not what catches your eyes’’. Roy T Bennett

Capricorn: A strong sense of freedom, flexibility, responsibility, and making the best decisions for yourself without being compromised this week is in your best interest. Continue to lay the foundation of your achievements for the life you want to live. What is your passion? Does your passion speak to you daily? Toward the end of the month, life may throw you a curveball as you are approaching a turning point in your life. A resolution of a profound nature of some kind is likely to introduce itself. “Gratitude is the fairest blossom that springs from the soul.” Henry Beecher

Aquarius: Patience, discipline, and self-sustaining factors are the keys for you this week. We can’t control so many things, yet you can control what you do, say, and how you react to a situation. If you’re thinking about starting something new, it’s time. On Jan. 13, the New Moon in Capricorn suggests it’s a great time to create new programs and projects while releasing outdated methods and redirecting your energy to something more useful and resourceful to liberate yourself. It’s best to prep 2-3 days before the upcoming New Moon to get yourself into the rhythm. Take a deep breath once a day or 10 minutes of meditation, yoga, exercise, or something of your choice to elevate your mind, body, and spirit. “Stop now. Enjoy the moment. It’s now or never.” Maxime Lagace

Pisces: sometimes, when we want things right now, quick, fast, and in a hurry, it doesn’t happen. At times you had to keep your composure and allow love and divine timing to intervene while you continue to do your portion. This week you may feel a bit stagnate, up in the air just floating around toward completion. In the meantime, listen out for useful information while concentrating on your desires. You’re very sensitive this week and can be easily wounded in your feelings if approached, touched, or spoken to unjustly. Emotions of other people’s emotional state of being may also drain you. Set some boundaries within your personal space. “Give thanks for the little and you will find a lot.” Hansa Proverb

Aries: If you have a stack of papers on your desk that needs cleaning, sorting, and filing away, that seems about right. Utilize this week to organize your workspace, at home, and in your immediate environment. Make sure you do your homework and take care of yourself in the sense of any news or a possible job offer, even opportunities that may come your way. Pick an area of your life you would like to improve on and start a 28-day process to take action and record the process. You’ll begin to see the difference within you in no time. “In all affairs, it’s a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have taken for granted.” Bertrand Russell

Taurus: What do you love and value the most, my earth friend? Is it your work? Is it that you help people become successful by mentoring, teaching, by advising, and counseling? It’s like you’re an advocate, helping your community in some way, shape, or form. This week team up with a study group of your choice or join in on a stimulating conversation, giving and receiving without being judgmental of each other. It’s all about coming together and being open to new avenues of adventures, ideas to bridge the gap. “Gratitude is the sign of a noble souls.” Aesop

Gemini: As you approach this week, you may experience mood swings, emotional upsets, and feeling a bit restless for the moment. When you think your energy is changing, don’t go against the energy. Take a moment to contemplate what’s on your mind. Is there a person of interest, or are you thinking about being more focused or structured to clarify what’s on the agenda? Rest, review, and reconstruct the way you handle your affairs. There’s a lesson at play you have to encounter to get you through that way you’re thinking for the long run ahead. “No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks.” James Allen

Cancer: Step into a new version of yourself by changing your hair color, adjusting your diet, wearing your clothes a tad different way to lighten and brighten your appearance. Do you check yourself in the mirror, really review yourself? Do you check your attitude and your mindset as well? If you’re looking for ways to improve your business and home, this is the week to advance your career and relationships. Also, news of a pregnancy, birth of a new idea, the separation of possible family members, health conditions, and water-related issues may come up this week. It’s best to take a slow and steady approach in your due diligence. “When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” Maya Angelou

Leo: If you can get away briefly, go near or vacation where there’s a beach, a river, lakes, or waterfalls to seek answers to questions along with an inner desire to seek truth or find moments of solitude. Touch, lay, bathe in the water to purge, renew, regenerate, and remove away all the hurt, pain, disappointment, and outdated ways longer supporting your growth at this time. Sometimes, the unexpected demise of a person’s life, or life-changing events, can trigger the body to elevate you to a higher plane spiritually, mentally, and physically. “As long as this exists, this sunshine and this cloudless sky, and as long as I can enjoy it, how can I be sad?” Anne Frank

Virgo: Sometimes we march to our own drumbeat best, plus sometimes we march to the beat in uniform order of togetherness to help support one another or bring out the best in everyone. What routine you put in place may need an extra step, be it a left, a right turn, or take steps to stay in rhythm. A feeling of awkward destructive energy may challenge or break you down to get you through to a situation for more simplicity. That approach will certainly help you on your journey. “In ordinary life, we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Libra: Your actions and deeds of what you do now to be free later on, within nine months to a year and a half, may make all the difference in the world. What seems to be especially true where working or sharing plans and ideas with a new group of people to get the job done are concerned. Shift your frequency to what empowers the new you. What visions do you see that can create a product or service that can help others on a humanitarian scale help bring people together? A delightful week to indulge yourself in some form of study, roundtable discussion, and other ways to improve your reputation. “The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it.” Richard Bach

Scorpio: Romance, finance, duty, obligation seems to be swinging in one direction as the due date is approaching to get things in place and back on schedule—the secret ingredients are stability, routine, and a commitment rather than stagnation in the queue. Figure out a way to improve areas of your life that may need attention. Write them out, then read it back to yourself, then go from there. Aim to tackle one bullet point out at a time to get the maximum use of the flow of making adjustments to make better improvements for yourself. “We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.” Cynthia Ozick

Sagittarius: It appears this week, a wait-and-see game, similar to the cat and mouse chasing each other, as to who will make the first move now. Well, you can have a very determined heart to make the first impressions or have a bit of consideration and patience while giving some thought before you sound the alarm. How do you feel this week? Are you having discomforts regarding your digestive system due to an outburst of what you said out of anger, jealousy, or perhaps something you ate? On the other hand, all is well and strong enough where you or someone admits, acknowledges, or accepts their wrong to solve a problem that frees you of them? “Don’t pray when it rains if you don’t pray when the sun shines.” LeRoy Satchel Paige
