There is no better boat than a horoscope to help a man cross over the sea of life.

Aries

Aries

21 March – 19 April

January brings a career revolution for ambitious Rams. Although you may have to appease your boss by carrying out an uncomfortable task. Still, in doing so, you’ll show your superiors you’ve got what it takes, but is that what you really want? If the answer is yes, you’ll be tempted to step on someone’s toes to hit your professional target – don’t! There are more ways to skin a cat, and by mid-month, January’s new moon shows you how. A money stressor comes to a head, and like popping a pimple, you’ll extract what needs to go and keep only what’s in your financial best interests. Jupiter and genius planet Uranus help you clear away debts. By month’s end, the full moon illuminates your love zone. Couples fall in love all over again. While singles romance themselves with a little retail splurge or indulgent experience.

Aries

Taurus

20 April – 20 May

Mars motivates you to get-up-and-go in the first week of January. This is great news for Bulls wanting to finish a major undertaking. Feeling lacklustre? This month, you’ll be revved up ready to conquer the world! One word of caution, though; don’t be too quick to engage in risky activities. Mars might make you more accident-prone than usual. And also, a hasty decision may not turn out for the best. Avoid regret by looking before you leap, and make sure you have all the facts before signing up for anything important. Make all that extra oomph work for you rather than against you. A male colleague has your back from January 20th, as the sun supports your career sector. This is a great time to ask for a professional favour, so believe in what you bring to the table.

Gemini

Gemini

21 May – 20 June

January inspires a karmic connection or a mind-blowing epiphany. If you’re single, chances are you won’t be for long. Look out for someone that feels like an old friend – that’s your soul mate! Coupled up? There’s still something new to learn about your partner that can strengthen your bond. During your life, you encounter more than one soul mate, yet it’s the lessons you teach each other that help shape your experiences. January’s new moon makes a change to your financial landscape. You might have to put in extra hours at work or devise an improved savings scheme, but if you fertilise your money tree now, it will bear juicy fruit by next month. As the month wraps up, Mercury’s retrograde takes you out of town. Double-check all travel details and don’t forget to pack small essential items, like your toothbrush or supplements.

Cancer

Cancer

21 June – 22 July

January kicks off a friendship inventory, as assertive Mars dishes up an extra serve of confidence. You’re compelled to cull people that don’t bring value to your life, on either an emotional, mental or spiritual level. As 2021 begins, you realise you don’t have time for human parasites. Instead, you decide to be discerning about who you invest your time in. For a moment, you let sentimentality get the better of you. But then quickly remember that relationships are a two-way street and walk on. Good for you, Cancer! On January 9th, the Sun and Neptune lure to you the sea. Fancy a beachside holiday? Work responsibilities or travel restrictions may hold you back. In that case, spend some time in your local bayside area. Breathing salty air will do wonders for your wellbeing. January’s full moon asks that you get crystal clear on your money goals for the upcoming year.

Leo

Leo

23 July – 22 August

Venus opens your heart to love that’s raw and real. Let’s face it, Leo, you’re pretty fabulous. But sometimes, it’s easy to get caught up in glitz and glam, which can affect your relationship. Try to appreciate what’s right in front of you, even if he’s not the knight in shining armour you were hoping for. The best person for you might be a little rough around the edges. And, maybe you don’t need a knight anyway? Consider that you’re precisely enough as you are, with or without a partner. Business owners are cautioned to be meticulous about negotiations or alliances. Mercury’s retrograde may cause a detail to get lost in translation. Healthwise, you’re on top of your game in January. Use your extra glow to improve a PB or try out a new exercise technique. Discover a new class or group of training buddies that bring out the best in you.

Virgo

Virgo

23 August – 22 September

January’s new moon activates your love zone – it’s time to move forward. Taken maidens step up commitment in their existing relationship. This could be as simple as changing your Facebook status, or as complex as having a conversation with your partner where you outline needs that aren’t being met. The stars support you getting what you want, so be brave! Singles embark on an exciting new romance with all the bells and whistles. Maybe this is the one, or maybe it isn’t. Enjoy the ride anyway. Minor health niggles melt away when the sun warms up your wellness sector. By month’s end, both your career and home sectors are activated by the moon’s nodes. This lunar dance sees you stay put if you’ve been working from home.

Libra

Libra

23 September – 22 October

Family matters take priority, as Venus cocoons those you cherish most. Spending time with loved ones makes you realise that home is where the heart is. A female relative is your primary focus and may need more of your attention than usual. Try to be there for her as best you can, without sacrificing your own needs in the process. It’s a tough balance, but you are the sign of the scales, after all. Librans looking to move to a new house or purchase real estate are blessed when the perfect property lands in their lap. One word of caution; Mercury retrogrades by month’s end, so read the fine print when it comes to signing legal documents. This retrograde also calls for a love review. Like it or not, you’ll be questioning your needs, which through no fault of your own, may have changed. Just don’t neglect to communicate where you’re at with your partner.

Scorpio

Scorpio

23 October – 21 November

Uranus, the planet of restlessness, makes a positive shift in your relationship zone on January 14th. Expect a relationship revolution! If you’re unhappy in your current circumstances, it’s time to shake things up. This doesn’t mean you’ll abandon your partner or vice versa, but it does indicate that the status quo may no longer be a good fit. Happy couples use this planetary shift to do something radical together. Go on an adventure that pushes you out of your comfort zone. One thing’s for sure; it will be a thrilling experience that you’ll remember forever. Bungee jumping anyone? January’s full moon opens you up to a plethora of professional possibilities. Choose wisely, because the seeds that you sow now will set up your career for the remainder of the year. Some Scorpios are due for an award, promotion or praise. Accept the recognition that’s due to you, knowing that it’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius

22 November – 21 December

This month, money makes your world go around. January’s new moon suggests you review how you make it, grow it and spend it. If these three areas are balanced, great! However, if you’re spending more than you earn, it’s time to tweak your budget. A small adjustment may be all that’s needed, so don’t avoid the problem, hoping it will fix itself. You’re a wonderful teacher, Sagittarius. When Jupiter and Uranus align in your communication zone on January 18th, you have something important to say. Spit it out! Think of yourself as the mouthpiece for a topic that could create positive change. Romantic relationships are due for a karmic reckoning. Archers unsure if their lover is ‘the one’, will know by January 25th. On this day, the moon’s nodes whisper a message about your soul mate.

Capricorn

Capricorn

22 December – 19 January

January’s new moon is all about you, Capricorn. When was the last time you put yourself first? This month, focus on fulfilling personal needs that have fallen by the wayside. Usually, you excel at leadership and managing other people, whether that be on a professional or private level. But now it’s time to sort yourself out. For starters, stop for a moment, take a breath and tune in to your heart. Then, make a move towards what makes it sing. After January 7th, Mars adds spice to your love life. It’s time you let your hair down – tap into your wild side. Doing so might feel a bit weird at first, but once you let down your guard, there’ll be no stopping you! Sexually speaking, January promises to be red hot in the bedroom. Those loved-up endorphins are great for your health too, so don’t hold your inner sex goddess back! Money commitments are best executed in the first half of January before Mercury retrogrades through your financial zone.

Aquarius

Aquarius

20 January – 18 February

Happy birthday Aquarius! Not only does the sun mark a brand-new cycle from January 20th, but the world is bowing down to you, in the Age of Aquarius. The seeds you sow now have the potential to grow into great success stories. Still, before you reap your rewards, you must get clear on your goals. And, this month, the sun helps you do just that. Mercury’s retrograde is in your sign too, which can be super positive if you use it to reflect on past mistakes. Mercury doesn’t want to wrap you over the knuckles; he just wants to make sure you’ve gleaned wisdom from your lessons. By the second half of the month, you’ll be dreaming big, and that’s just the way it ought to be. Avoid thoughts and people that hold you back, because the sky’s the limit for you now, Aquarius! On January 29th, the full moon illuminates your relationship zone. You’ll learn something surprising about your partner. Or, if you’re single, you’ll encounter a soul mate with creative flair.

Pisces

Pisces

19 February – 20 March

Being the twelfth and final sign of the zodiac has earnt you the reputation of the being the psychic sign. Whether you exercise your intuitive talents or not, depends on you. Still, when Mercury retrogrades through your subconscious sector, pay attention! You’re likely to receive a message from beyond. It could be that you gain a greater understanding of why something happened in the way it did, which brings you peace of mind. On a lighter note, you’ll enjoy a gorgeous night out with your soul sisters, in the second half of January. This night is all about good food, fun and quality friendship, and it gets you thinking that the least complicated relationships are indeed the best. Because sometimes, a girl needs to let her hair down and not take herself too seriously. January’s full moon in your health zone motivates you to sign up for a marathon or commit to PT training with a group of like-minded gym junkies. Above all, stop procrastinating!
