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)
You are being asked to dream and wish this month. I think what the cards are saying is to set your goals and intentions in January. And it doesn’t matter if they sound impossible or impractical at this stage in your life; hold on to them and believe in your abilities. What you’re going to do is lay out a plan of action to make your dreams and wishes come true.
Aquarius (20 Jan – 18 Feb)
Families can be hard to keep happy – it might be best to keep your distance for a bit this month. The friction is mostly being caused by disagreements over traditions, culture and beliefs. Basically, you’re trying to break free from the conditioning you have been moulded with but family is holding you back. You may need to keep things sweet for a time by indulging them every now and then. But it will be best to keep your opinions and thoughts to yourself for a while.
Pisces (19 Feb – 20 Mar)
You will be facing challenging times with relationships this month. Stand by your truth at all times to navigate through these uncertain and unclear times. A different perspective will help alleviate tensions, and so will a dollop of empathy. Too often we get caught up in our own tunnel of thoughts and fail to put ourselves in the shoes of others to understand the challenges they are facing.
Aries (21 Mar – 19 Apr)
The start to your year calls for you to take things easy. The previous year has been riddled with battles, most of which were losing battles! Lots of energy has been wasted and it’s time to replenish yourself this January. Don’t make big plans for yourself; just manage expectations with any outcomes you’re awaiting.
Taurus (20 Apr – 20 May)
The actions that you’ll take this month will be very unlike Taurus. You will take a journey like you never have before, grabbing an opportunity that comes out of the blue by throwing caution to the wind. It doesn’t mean you’ll be careless with your decisions. But you choose to go where the tide brings you for a change, because you want to try something different – you just aren’t sure what. Being open to all options seems like your best chance to hop onto something new.
Gemini (21 May – 20 Jun)
It’s a time for being open and honest with yourself regarding your relationships this month – a time to move forward and leave the struggles and disagreements behind. This is not to say to forget them but rather to learn where things went wrong. Was it you? Was it your lack of empathy? Or were you being selfish? These are very difficult questions to ask yourself; the easier route is to lay the blame on the other party rather than take ownership of why and how things have gone wrong.
Cancer (21 Jun – 22 Jul)
You’re trying to step out of your comfort zone this month, and it’s not going to be the most comfortable journey. But it feels right and it feels like it’s the time for this. You may choose to embark on a new career, overcome your fear of water by taking up swimming, or embrace a new way of thinking or spiritual path. You aren’t forced into your new ways. You are choosing it. So, whatever comes with it, you’ll be mentally prepared.
Leo (23 Jul – 22 Aug)
You are leaving a time of turmoil and difficulty this month. There was a time where you could not “see” what was unfolding before you and you chose to stay under your shell and believe a certain way about things. This month, the veil is finally lifted. It’s challenging, but you are beginning to see things clearly – see things for what they really are rather than being told what they are.
Virgo (23 Aug – 22 Sep)
Your ideas, decisions or perspectives will most likely not be welcomed by the people who care about and love you this month. It’s best to choose your battles wisely in January, or perhaps not to share. To maintain harmony with the relationships that matter a lot to you, it might be better to withhold your truth until you can find the right time. Such is the delicate nature of the fabric of our relationships; not everyone will be ready to embrace a change that will ultimately alter the reality they thought was true all this time.
Libra (23 Sep – 22 Oct)
You are focused on moving forward in your life. You’re giving things a final push to make them happen. It might be better to buckle down and retreat when things get challenging. Sometimes the opinions of others can pose a distraction to your focused determination. It’s a testing month but it doesn’t look like you’re about to give up, even when the going gets tough.
Scorpio (23 Oct – 21 Nov)
You need to stand your ground and take control of whatever challenge or battle you’re facing. This month, it looks like the spotlight is on your relationship; this may refer to both a romantic one or a business one. You may worry that you’re losing – you could feel as though the plates you’re juggling are about to come crashing down. But hang on; it looks like you’re nearly at the finish line of having a breakthrough. Just hold on a little longer!
Sagittarius (22 Nov – 21 Dec)
Lots of changes and movement are taking place this month in your world, Sagittarius. The key is to just go with this flow. Go with how your intuition guides you. The more you trust your intuition, the clearer things will become regarding your purpose or what you’re meant to learn or experience. The changes are all going to result in a positive outcome, so try not to worry about the unknown!
