Whether or not you believe in the stars, horoscopes or astrology, monthly forecasts usually resonate in some way. Our regular star-sign forecasts by Sharan (tarotbysharan.com) are actually based on tarot, so they’re a little bit different. We’ve been a fan of Sharan for years, so, if you’re in need of a little guidance, she might just be the card for you!
Capricorn(22 Dec – 19 Jan)
It’s a month of slowing down to regain perspective of your long-term plans. You may have veered off the path at some point and hit a wall. It’s time to retreat and take things slow, and perhaps stick to the tried and tested ways. As boring as that may sound, it feels like something that will get you on your path to achieve what you had in your vision. As a Capricorn, you’re not up for taking chances. You believe in doing what you are familiar with and leaving the daring stuff to the others. Being in complete control of the wheel and steering yourself in the direction of your long-term vision is what makes you feel more at home. So, a clear vision coupled with hard work is what will get you through the month.
Aquarius (20 Jan – 18 Feb)
For Aquarius, January is a fantastic month for relationships and families to flourish. Events will move along rather quickly, allowing you to feel a sense of wholeness, happiness and completion within your relationships. You may even seek to seal the union with marriage or purchasing a matrimonial home. This month sees the coming together of couples and families, and the achievement of a sense of alignment within these relationships which allows you to see your wishes come true.
Pisces (19 Feb – 20 Mar)
All good things come to an end. That seems to be the blunt message of the month. Don’t rest on your laurels just yet, because anything could happen to rock your perfect world. So, the key is to always be prepared for every circumstance. Relationships could come to a sudden end, finances could be lost overnight or your home could be devastated in the event of a fire. The message is, whatever happens, you have the ability to build it right back up again. So, stop wallowing and begin creating again.
Aries (21 Mar – 19 Apr)
The workplace is a battleground this month. You may think you are right – and you could be – but this conflict of trying to prove yourself right has already resulted in bad blood. You may have won the argument but you aren’t the flavour of the month anymore amongst your colleagues. In some way, your triumph leaves you feeling discontent with your approach. The fiery Aries will need to tame itself this January and eat a little humble pie. Apologising would be a good way out of the unpleasantries this month.
Taurus (20 Apr – 20 May)
Those under the Taurus sign aren’t in for the short haul. Whatever plans they make are for their long-term future. This month, it feels like the path to achieving that long-term goal has veered off, leaving you feeling disappointed. As you try to get back onto the path again, note that haste is not the way forward here, as things aren’t what they seem to be. External circumstances have shifted. It will require some flexibility on your part to move with these changes to get yourself back on track. It might also help to wait and see before you act.
Gemini (21 May – 20 Jun)
This is a quiet month of learning and reflection. Listen to your instincts and go slow. Not much action is needed this January as all will be happening in your head. It’s a calm start to the year for Gemini: you may opt to embrace this calm and pursue a spiritual journey of learning and understanding, or you may need this quiet time to map out your strategy. You will definitely need time to work out which ideas or inspirations are grounded and practical. It’s fun to dream but things have to work in reality. That’s the quest of your journey this month.
Cancer (21 Jun – 22 Jul)
It’s a time of listening to your heart this month, whether it’s moving countries or homes, changing jobs or pursuing a spiritual path of learning. It’s important to find your happy place. January is about moving away from what has made you unhappy and moving towards what makes you happy. Things may not make sense or feel practical at the time but just listen to your heart and instincts. You will most probably be drawn to what is appropriate for you at this time in your life. Just go with the flow.
Leo (23 Jul – 22 Aug)
You are dealing with a matter of the heart this month. There may be a need to end a relationship or seek a new beginning with one. Things aren’t what they seem. But you will need to stand your ground with your truth. Even if there’s a lack of physical proof, stick with your story. There is no right or wrong outcome here; if things are meant to last, they will, and if you are deserving of better, you may choose to move on. Whatever the course of action, take this as an opportunity to realise your worth.
Virgo (23 Aug – 22 Sep)
You are entering a time of change this new year. You may find that letting go of opportunities or people that aren’t a fit in your life will create a space for things that do fit. It’s not okay to settle or compromise anymore. You are on a journey to find the perfect fit so you can give your best and grow in the direction you want to. Change your mentality from one of lacking to one of abundance, and don’t be afraid of turning down opportunities. It doesn’t mean you’ll be short of them. It just means you are giving your full energy towards something that is fitting of your talent and ability.
Libra (23 Sep – 22 Oct)
It’s a blissful start to the new year for Libra. Everything you could ever ask for is right here and now. Finances are in a good place – you can finally treat yourself and family. Family relationships are harmonious and in a happy place. Your good spirits leave you feeling generous, be it with your time or money. You encourage growth in others around you with your wisdom, or with a loan to help someone pursue a business or study. You make decisions based on what your heart feels and what your intuition says this month. It may not make sense to others but it certainly sits right with you.
Scorpio (23 Oct – 21 Nov)
You are in full command of your life direction this month, but be careful with your choices. It may be wise to slow down to take a wider perspective of things rather than thinking of the gain in the short term. Spend your time assessing what is important to you and where your skills and knowledge lie. There’s no point plodding on at something which you haven’t got the skills or knowledge for, and that will take a long time to deliver results. Know your subject well and focus on that. Results will come, albeit slowly, but when they do come, you’ll be rewarded for it.
Sagittarius (22 Nov – 21 Dec)
Get out of your head and create the change you need this month. You seem to be stuck in your thoughts and can’t find a way out of your predicament. Know that things are constantly changing in life and nothing ever remains stagnant – you just need a change of perspective to find a way out of your worries or difficulties. If you’ve experienced a loss of work, financial security or the security of a home, for example, please realise that there is always a way out. Seek help and you shall receive. You will be revelling with close ones by the end of the month. Things will come full circle and your burden will begin to feel light again.
