Important Dates:  February 14th, Valentine’s Day; the 25th, Mardi Gras and Shrove Tuesday; and the 26th, Ash Wednesday.

Winter Is Nearly Over…Hurry Up Spring!

I am not a big fan of winter. I don’t ski. I don’t go snowmobiling or sledding, nor do I involve myself in any snow related-activities. I hate the cold! I prefer the spring and fall when the temperatures are mild.  One of my favorite comedians, Lewis Black, said in one of his specials.  “Fall is great for about three days when the leaves change color and then after that, you have sticks for the remainder of the winter!”  There are a lot of sticks around here right now up in the Pocono Mountains.  However, the snow and/or ice that clings to them makes them seem alive somehow.

In Akashic Records and Metaphysical traditions, it is said that our soul has to learn how to experience becoming everything on this planet before becoming a human soul. Pets are supposed to be the most developed animal souls because they interact with humans. They are learning behaviors by how we treat them, so when they reincarnate, they will have some of the traits that their masters may have had.  This is also a process that takes many incarnations to be learned, but I digress. Trees too have souls in them. I wonder worry about them sometimes.  It has been proven that trees, plants, flowers, and most flora have reactions to certain stimuli, like cutting a leaf off of the branch or bush or perhaps cutting flowers for a vase.  So, I wonder throughout this harsh winter, how are the bare trees fairing?  Some are broken in half by the heavy ice.  Some are continually covered with snow.  Many have fallen over and seem dead and gone.  I wonder if the trees that are “dead” or “injured” in some way, continue to allow spirits to reside in them and is that part of the learning process.  I would assume the dead tree spirits go on their merry way to their next lesson, but what about trees that are cut down with only a stump is left, and what about damaged trees? Are the spirits still inside the tree or does the death or destruction of a tree coincide with the spirit moving on?  Maybe when I was a spirit in a tree, I was in the cold too long during a harsh winter or was up here in the Pocono Mountains and really started to hate the snow.  One never knows.  All I’m saying is, “Hurry up, spring,” with all the new life that will leap up around us to show us again that there is a cycle to life…life and death in trees seems similar to the human world. Be kind to your trees, for eventually they may be someone you will know or love!  

ARIES – March 21 – April 19

Now that the holidays are joining new organizations.  over, you seem to want to catch up on things you had to put on hold. Getting back to joining groups and organizations for your business or personal pleasure is a good idea.  It seems as if you will be meeting people who will be important to your well-being.  This is an invigorating time to start attracting additional friends and will want to start many new projects at work and at home. You are thinking about so many new exciting ways to change your life, especially what you should continue to do and perhaps what has to go or be altered in some way. Planned changes in business will help you move onward and upward.  Whether or not you stay with your present job, you will be successful.  Thinking from many perspectives at once, you are able to see what the outcomes of any scenario will be.  Your energy level is high and you seem to be doing too much at one time; be careful not to run yourself down which may affect your immune system or health in general.  Be sure to rest when appropriate and don’t take on too many things that others can help you with.  There is much luck, positive energy and great opportunities awaiting you if you decide to try something new; otherwise, things will stay exactly the same.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

Don’t try to keep your emotions pent up inside of you.  Depression may creep into your life from time to time, but life is going to get better and sometimes changes need to be made to push us into our next adventure in life.  It looks like a lot of things are changing in the way you think and feel about people and things that it may be an overwhelming time.  This also seems to be a very serious time in your life when you are thinking about your future direction and goals to make yourself happy and financially stable. You may be thinking from a philosophical or metaphysical point of view and may even take some classes to learn what this is all about. Your interest has been piqued in esoterica and your spirituality is going in a much stronger direction; that’s why your interest is so strong now.  There’s a possibility of a change in career, especially if you have been thinking about it for a long time.  If you are unhappy in your current position, perhaps it’s time to send out resumes and see what else is out there for you.  Be very careful about keeping your career on an even keel as it seems you will be getting upset easily so you will need to be more centered and focused within your goals.  Be open to change and a bit more flexible than usual and things will go more smoothly.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

New beginnings, new relationships, journeys, jobs, perhaps moving, and financial security are coming to you.  It will be like a breath of fresh air and you will be able to think in a more direct and positive way to decide what you really want to accomplish. There is much positive energy around you and outcomes couldn’t look brighter.  You sometimes feel as if you need to accomplish much in this lifetime on your own and you are so right.  You can do so many things and are talented in many areas; it would be wonderful if you could harness your energy to make life easier by condensing your workload and doing what makes you more money in a shorter amount of time or as the saying goes, “Working smarter and not harder.”  Making yourself a priority is important now.  Homelife is more satisfying whether you are alone or if you have a family. Divide up the household chores so you don’t have to do everything yourself even if they are not done to your specifications.  Children will learn and you will have more time to do what you need to do for yourself.

CANCER – June 21 – July 22

It seems dealing with finances and relatives will be your main interests.  Of course, perhaps planning short trips for a well-needed break from the winter is also possible. What a good time for making more money or acquiring it through investments, luck in the lottery, an inheritance or working hard and getting a promotion or more responsibility for more money.  You will continue to be very fortunate with financial stability.  Nothing makes you happier than having money in the bank and you will be able to save a bit more than usual.  Friends and associates may ask to borrow money, and it’s up to you whether or not you want to lend them money.   However, it doesn’t look like you’ll get any of it back.  Your romantic partner is still not on the same wavelength with you regarding money so another conversation is due.  Upsets and worrying can spoil the mood of your month, so find out what your exact issues are and deal with them one at a time until they are completed.   This is a transformational time for you to make yourself first in your life and having you not worry about everyone else.

LEO – July 23 – August 22

This is a wonderful time to get back into your artistic side, especially art and writing. Any hobby that makes you focus on yourself or gives you much-needed rest would be in your best interest.  Family and home life fall into place and you are ready to really get involved in your family’s interests, pastimes, and hobbies.  You talk a great deal to each other but now you are actually listening to one another.  You don’t have to be the caregiver alone any longer.  Share responsibilities and make sure you have enough time for yourself.  Classes, lectures, workshops, the spa, a massage, mani/pedi or anything else you feel like doing for yourself are important now.  You need to be pampered like you have pampered others.  If someone wants to do something for you, let them.  Smile and say, “Thank you,” instead of telling them that it’s okay because you’ll take care of it.  Some reciprocal energy was bound to find its way to you and now here it is.  Activity is mild; you have many plans, but just don’t seem to have the energy to do everything you want.  Prioritize and at least you’ll get some things done that are important.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

This is time to plan adventures and trips. You should get involved with many organizations that do the things you would like to do. It would be wonderful if they also had planned tours to either a country of your interest or a hobby class or lecture.  Romantic love, creativity and children seem to take up a good deal of your month.  Be careful not to fantasize about a romantic partner because (s)he may not be as perfect as you think.  If it is a new partner, be sure to ask family and friends’ opinions because you may not be seeing the real person. Emotions are high; you are also super sensitive now, so crying at the drop of a hat may be at hand.  Why?  Only you know.  You tend to make things worse than they truly are by worrying and being anxious over everything, so if you lighten up, you may immediately resolve some of your issues.  Money doesn’t seem to be your main concern as it is steady and you feel as if your life is secure.  Feeling as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders may be real or imagined.  Again, deal with reality and handle the things you have to and let other things go.

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

You are trying to get back into the swing of things with diet, exercise, trying to perhaps be more organized and you are also working on your procrastination issues.  Health improves once you try to keep New Year’s resolutions about eating better and exercising.  Have a checkup at your health care professional if you have let them slip by.  This would be a good time to make sure everything is fine. You are scattered and frantic trying to get so many things done during the winter.  Don’t panic or drive yourself crazy.  Having a list of things to do is a fine start to getting things done, but it is not set in stone. Make time for yourself to rest, meditate, pray or veg out.  You have the right to watch TV or listen to self-help CDs.  Take a class or two so you can become relaxed and calm.  If you get overwhelmed, give yourself permission to rest.  You always tend to do too much, so take it easy from time to time.  Visit friends and have a gab session.  Talking over your problems with others may put them in perspective.  You do not always have to be the one who helps others; let others help you now.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21
This is a time where you will find simple pleasure in doing little things for others and you will appreciate what you have in life.  You will try to get so much pleasure in changing yourself or your habits a little bit a time when you realize the results of your efforts.  You may take a yoga or meditation class (or the like) as you are ready to absorb more knowledge.  Set some boundaries so that you are not being taken advantage of on a daily basis. If retired, you may find that life is getting rather boring; you may need a part-time job or something to do to pass away the time.  Leisure is great, but without making a contribution to life, one gets bored to tears. Otherwise, health issues should be addressed and do not just let this pain continue without dealing with it.  If it is something that needs to be taken care of, you are ahead of the game since you went to the doctor early so issues can be dealt with and resolved quickly.  Depression and worry take hold of you from time to time.  If you can’t do anything about the problem, just take one day at a time. If you can change it, then take positive action.  You need to think in a more constructive way giving yourself many options for your career, love life and financial future.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 21

Doing activities with others or going to family events will be a continuing theme this month. This is a month where you will always seem to have someone to do what you want to do for a change.  It also suggests marriage or having a serious, romantic partnership is on your mind. Romantic and business partnerships may not make as much sense as they used to.  You are re-evaluating your relationships and may come to an interesting conclusion.  Some may think that being single would be the way to go while others could not think of leaving a partner, so which option is for you?  You have much to accomplish now such as art, reading, dancing, singing, writing, poetry, a blog or pottery to name a few things that you may have an interest in.  This is such a creative period so what will you be creating?  Make time for yourself.  There is so much potential for you to be artistic and creative, so get those creative juices flowing and see what happens. The more you change, the more the energy around you will change for the better.  Choose which friends should remain in your life and get rid of the negative people who always bring you down.  You need to be surrounded by positive souls who want the best for you and who want nothing from you.

CAPRICORN – December 22 – January 20

You should be concentrating on cutting through any confusing situation and making decisions about important topics.  This is also a good time to understand new situations in business or a good time to promote your own business.  You can see through any business situation with a sense of intelligence and logic that many people do not possess. You also have the opportunity for formal education, lectures, seminars, workshops or training that may be planned for the future.  Long-distance travel does not look too promising at this time.  Financial security and abundance are your issues this month.  You are concerned that there may not be enough money for the future and it seems as if you are concerned out about it.  Be sensible and try to deal with your fears and worries and the situation at hand.  Drama unfolds as you worry yourself to distraction over nothing.  This is a great time to reconsider what it is that you really need in your life.  Thinking about so many opportunities will make you crazy, so only choose a few you can really accomplish within your time frame and let the others go.  You seem very sensitive and emotional now, even though you may not want to admit it, but just know that better days are coming and once you decide the direction you want to go, then the opportunities and choices will follow. It would be good if you concentrated on your self-esteem and self-confidence now as they could really use a boost.  Let others appreciate what you do for them and don’t let your family and friends continue to take advantage of your good nature.

AQUARIUS – January 21 – February 19

This seems to be a wonderful time for organizing your business goals and objectives.  You have the insight to change procedures for quicker results and will be noticed for your efforts.  Also, you seem to be re-examining your life and what you feel has to change to make your life run easier and without stress. Travel and career are important now, so plan whichever trip you want, but be sure you do not leave during your company’s busy season (budget season, new promotions, etc.).  It is up to you to set company standards so be sure you know the company’s policy and are very clear to help those under you adhere to the standards your company has set.  Career goals may be changing for the better.  Some may be getting a promotion and others may be leaving their comfortable position for a new job.  This is amazing news since taking that first step will help you move into your new world with many positive changes that will make you feel wonderful.  Dealing with finances is still tricky, but you are doing well.  Keep that budget alive and well and your bank account will be the same.  Don’t let depression take over your life from past experiences and events.  The past is gone and there is nothing you can do to change it.  You must live for today and the future.

PISCES – February 20 – March 20

Being very careful about what you say at work would be a good thing.  Don’t trust too many people because someone is trying to sabotage you and make you look like a lazy or untrustworthy employee.  Just be aware that others may want to get you into trouble with your boss or company.  Think before you speak to others and try hard not to be too super sensitive since others will find that a weakness in your character and prey upon it.   However, if you are in a creative field, this is the time for you to shine.  You may just want to brush up on some hobbies that you haven’t worked on in a long time.  Thinking in a clear and concise way will help you figure out anything that needs to be decided. Don’t second guess yourself.  If you make a decision, stick with it.  Most times when you change your first decision, you are not doing what you are supposed to be doing.  Procrastination sets in and you are back into the negativity that kept you from making a decision in the first place.  Move forward, be strong and determined and you will get through any instances of worry, anxiety and confusion.

Are You Living in the Perfect State for You?

by Vikki Anderson  

Have you ever noticed that when you are on vacation or just traveling through a particular state, you can be more relaxed, creative, and your energy is renewed? There is a calmness or unexplicable peace surrounding you. Sometimes you feel one with the environment (nature) and other times no matter how many good times you had, you are glad to get back home. Another indication of a good state for you (while on vacation) is to see if problems occur when you are there. I have one friend who goes on vacation to a particular state each year and gets injured playing golf, falling off curbs and breaking bones or the weather is horrendous for the week of her vacation. These are simple clues to help you decide that this particular area may not be for suitable to your vibrations, you and your well-being.

In doing astrology over the years, I have rarely met anyone who takes state sun signs into account. Knowing what sun sign an individual state is can help improve peoples’ lives, mental outlook and prosperity. In many cases moving across country, or just to another state, helps an individual dramatically change his/her life; however, this is not necessarily the case all of the time because someone may have chosen a state in the same sun sign of the state they had just left without knowing it. Or they may move to a state that squares or opposes their sun sign and this would create more obstacles and challenges for them to overcome than the original state they had recently left.

When moving to another state, the chart changes; planets that were restrictive or causing too much conflict may move into another house in the chart and ease that area of life that was causing the anxiety or worry. An ascendant may be changed a few degrees or into a totally different sign which would allow the person to perhaps handle situations in a more calm, logical or creative manner than before. There are so many possibilities and I have seen dramatic differences in my clients’ lives that I know it works.

The easiest way I have found for people to know if they are living in their “perfect” state has been to live in a state that has your sun sign. Being a Gemini, it was no surprise that when I vacationed in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, I always had a wonderful time even if I had nothing specific to do. When one is in harmony with nature and the vibrational patterns in the environment around you, you are on the right path in your journey. This will lead to happiness, joy and contentment. One day in the future, I may even move to South Carolina because I feel so at home when I am there.

However, if you are planning to move and do not think you would like the states listed in your sun sign; you may always pick a trine state. For instance, in the chart below, if you are a water sign, let’s say Scorpio, your trine states would be in Cancer or Pisces. In turn, if you are a Pisces, your trine signs would be Cancer and Scorpio as indicated in the chart. Trine signs are the same element as your sun sign. You would also get along very well with these particular zodiac sun signs. Squares are three sips from your sun sign in either direction and oppositions are the signs exactly opposite or 180 degrees from your sign. It would be best to stay away from making these particular states your home. An alphabetical listing of the states and their sun signs is listed below.

Oppositions
( are 180 degrees or six signs apart)

These signs oppose each other which means they are opposite each other – usually there is an attraction for a short period of time and then the differences surface and there will be less and less attraction afterwards.

It would not be in your best interest to move to any of the states in the column which your sun sign appears. For instance, if you were a Leo, you would not want to move to a Taurus, Scorpio, or Aquarius state.

January 2020 Horoscopes

Important Dates:  New Year’s Day, the 1st; Lunar Eclipse, the 10th; and Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the 20th.

Happy New Year to all!  As a yearly reminder, some of the dates for sun signs have changed.  This is because there are 365.25 days in the year.  Every four years, we make up that day in Leap Year. If you are a specific sun sign, you will remain your birth sign.  These dates are just for the current year and for those born within this year.

Words Are Powerful

As the new year begins, we should be mindful of all the words that come out of our mouths.  We should want to make the most positive statements or comments that we can.  Are your words positive or negative?  Are they encouraging or discouraging?  Do people like to talk to you because you are optimistic and you motivate them? Or do they hide from you because they know you are going to tell them another dreadful experience or story that will make them depressed for the rest of the day?  I’ve noticed, when I ask, “How are you today?”, most answer, “Not bad.”  I reply, “Does that mean good?”  Or they reply, “Hanging from a frayed cord.”  You are imbedding these thoughts into your subconscious so you will never feel as if life is giving you an equal break unless you are careful of what energies you surround yourself with.  “I can’t afford that,” or “I will never get that promotion,” etc., sets you up for failure. Gossip is never a good thing to repeat as well.  Did you ever say that someone was a pain in the neck or butt?  It’s been shown that people who say specific negative things over and over eventually get pains in those areas.  You can control a good part of your life and outcomes with positive thoughts and words.

As I learned in Silva Mind Method, it is recommended that you say, “I am getting better and better every day,” or “Never better,” when people ask how you are. As a hypnotherapist, I recommend saying positive affirmations throughout the day to counteract any negative words that are around you.  You can say, “I am relaxed and confident and in full control of my life at all times.”  You can substitute my life for my health, my finances, my career, or any other thing you would like to replace it with. “Life is good and all situations will turn out in my best interest,” (or our best interest, if it’s a joint issue).  Also, as one of my teachers taught me in sixth grade, replace the word nice with other adjectives.  We were forbidden to use NICE when describing anything.  You will see how many new positive words you will come up with when this word is deleted from your vocabulary.

Words are important.  You can hurt someone’s feelings or you can uplift them.  Be cognizant of what you say to others.  Many years ago, a friend asked me if her butt looked big in the new pants outfit she was wearing?  I was always known for my truthfulness, so I answered, “Yes.”  I found out thirty years later, she never wore pants to work again because she didn’t want her butt to look big.  It was all because of a comment I made on her clothing!  I never realized what I had done.  Now, I always say that things look great, wonderful, lovely, original, etc., now as I will not hurt anyone else as much as I hurt her (and didn’t know it)!  Try not to criticize anyone because what goes around, comes around.  And as one of my favorite Cinderella movies quotes states, “Have courage and be kind.”

ARIES – March 21 – April 19

New ambitions, dreams, aspirations, and goals are in your future and what better time is there than now in the New Year?  This is a year that you shine.  Whatever you wanted to do but weren’t able to do it last year for whatever reason, reconsider trying it again.  This is a time where your self-confidence is high and you will welcome any challenge.  Deal with issues in relationships (personal or business) before they get out of hand.  Try to be a bit more flexible when defending your point of view.  You cannot always be right!  No one is.  Good luck is coming to you from all areas in life, so this would be a great time to take advantage of any help that is afforded you. Yes, you always help others, so maybe this is a time for payback of all the energy, help and support you have given others.  Think before you speak, and be sure that you let the other person air their points of view as well.  Being a natural leader, you will have a wonderful year doing so many delightful projects, chores or jobs, that you will even be surprised with your own accomplishments.

TAURUS – April 20 – May 20

Be sure to deal with any issues with friends as soon as you can or you may cause a rift that cannot be repaired.  Expect the unexpected now as this will be the norm this month, so be flexible and go with the flow so you may soar higher than you originally thought you could.  This may also be a time for many changes in all types of relationships.  You are being guided to have many more helpful people in your life.  Even if life gets you down here and there, be assured that the outcomes will be better than you envisioned.  You are thinking more about your future and what you really want to accomplish now.  You may also be thinking of changing careers or taking advanced college courses (or teaching them) because you have the need to know information.  So many changes are happening this year to you that you hadn’t expected, but they will all be good.  Jupiter is showering its blessings on you and wants you to succeed in everything you do, so be creative and start on the road of creativity and innovation.  You can do it.

GEMINI – May 21 – June 20

Perhaps there will be some buyer’s remorse when you receive your credit card bills this month. You’re not sure where all the expenses came from.  You seem to have been too generous with others, and you may have gone overboard in gift-giving and giving to charities, especially animal-related charities. This month is about consolidating debt, and not to be too depressed about your finances. With a budget or a plan of action, you will be able to get this debt under control in no time. Family members (or close friends) will try to lecture you on how to be economically frugal, but your generous nature can’t reconcile frugality with gift-giving.  There are many websites that offer items at drastic discounts, but you also may talk to friends and some family members about putting a limit on your gift-giving so everyone will be on the same page. Perhaps just give gifts to the children in your family so you’ll be saving on adult presents for birthdays or anniversaries, etc.  Getting closer to family and neighbors seems likely.  You are very gifted in many creative activities, so perhaps you can show others how to knit, crochet, paint, draw, sing, play music, etc., so the month will fly by and then you’ll realize you didn’t have to spend money to have fun.  Short distance travel (within states) will help you when you feel restless.  There is so much to see in every state, so take advantage of the historical sites, etc., near you.

CANCER – June 21 – July 22

You concentrate on your home after the holidays. You have waited to do some redecorating or accessorizing for the New Year.  Family issues may have you defending yourself for some ridiculous reason, but you want to start the new year right, so just listen and smile. You don’t have to agree or disagree, sometimes family just wants to be heard. Or you can say, “It’s possible,” and leave it at that.  They wouldn’t know if you agreed with them or not!  All in all, they feel as if they are giving you good advice because they care.  Acknowledge their concern and love for you.  You can’t always take care of everyone so let someone take care of you for a change.  You may wish to go out to explore nearby places of interest, restaurants, and museums.  You want to be active in this winter month, although staying home to catch up on reading or binge-watching your favorite DVR’d TV shows.  Health seems to be going along well, so just keep up the good work and just rest when it is required.  Don’t push yourself now.

LEO – July 23 – August 22

This is a time to reassess your friends, groups, and associations as well as your personal love life.  Are you staying in some relationships because it’s a habit? Or it would be easier to remain in the “group” or relationship because it’s so much easier than explaining why you feel you should leave?  This is a time for finding new love, romance, fun, and commitment so you can have a happier life without any of the excuses.  It’s not fair to the person you are staying with just because you feel you should stay with him/her.  Talk about it and then decide what you are going to do.  Joining some new groups that offer a variety of people to associate with maybe an opportune thing to do.  If you want to discover new things, make a list of what you would like to see and when.  Make a schedule.  You don’t have to do everything this month, but you will have a handle on everything you want to do this year and the timing of it so you don’t miss anything important.  You may not want to venture forth in the cold weather, but that’s ok.  Finish up on some house chores and projects that you didn’t have time to do in the months coming up to Christmas.  You will be happy you cleaned out closets, gave clothes to various charities, organized your home and environment so that new positive energy can flow into your home and life.

VIRGO – August 23 – September 22

Health is at the top of the list. Maybe changing your diet, exercise or working out in whichever way you feel is most beneficial to you will certainly help. There may be some tests or visits to see a friend/family member in the hospital.  Nothing to worry about. Worry is not something new to you; however, it should be limited and eventually stopped.  You are not helping yourself or anyone else with the negativity you are giving off by worrying about everything. Rehashing past loves, jobs, perhaps a fight or time you wished you did something different is not positive. Of course, listening to all your friends and family’s issues and concerns does not bring any positive energy to you, in fact, it’s quite the opposite.  Whenever you are told a secret, a problem or are around negativity, you seem to absorb it. You need to turn those negative or depressing thoughts into positive affirmations. You can do anything you want to do, as you are one of the most intelligent of all the signs. You can be so original and intuitive that this may be a time for you to enhance your abilities by taking metaphysical classes or studying on your own.  This is a time of self-exploration. There are so many possibilities, but the varied choices may keep you from taking a chance. You can’t make a decision.  Do something that is important to you and it will turn out just fine. Then positive energy can start attaching itself to you to attract other upbeat activities and encouraging behaviors from others.

LIBRA – September 23 – October 22

Relationships of all kinds seem to play an important role for you as the New Year starts.  Make sure all of your relationships, whether personal, business or pleasure, are good for you.  You may wish to plan a trip to a foreign shore when it is vacation time.  You have so many places you want to see and things you want to do that you should not hold yourself back any longer. A partner (romantic or friend) may wish to come with you.  Partners may act somewhat different than usual.  It can be anything from being overworked to mulling over a problem of a friend or colleague.  Don’t assume anything. Talking about any issues that are of concern for you should be discussed and dealt with. There may be a feeling of being detached in an important relationship. Whether it is you or your partner try to get to the bottom of this.  Nothing good will come of this unless it is discussed.  Your very airy mind will think all sorts of negative things that it could be when it will most likely be something very trivial.  Don’t take on burdens by yourself.  That’s why you are in a relationship so that your partner can help you whenever he/she can.  You’re in this together so act as a team. You should not take on any more responsibility.  You’ve done your share throughout the years.

SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21
You are aggressively trying to figure out how to keep most of your money and/or how it can work better for you.  You update all important papers; you just want to be prepared for anything that can happen without being surprised by something you didn’t do.  You are going to watch your budget, but don’t become miserly.  You have a good-hearted nature, so keep that alive.  Just cut down here and there and you will be fine. Buy what you need and not what you want at this time.  There may be new items that you want for your home or office, but you can always put those items on a list and wait until they go on sale.  Try not buying anything for one month, then it should be easier in future months.  There may be some contact with lawyers or perhaps there will be some sort of court case that you are attached to in some way. Leases and contracts require some lawyers and court can be nothing more than you contesting a speeding ticket.  Don’t get overly concerned about this.  Are you getting all your receipts and papers for the IRS consolidated?  Taxes may need to be paid soon.  Try to meet new people in church, book clubs, classes, and workshops.  You may meet some interesting people.

SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 21

You continue to go in many directions at once.  It would be a good thing if you could focus and make some concrete plans for your future.  Being very adept at so many things, you forget that others may not be able to keep up with you.  Perhaps a trip to a foreign country, or take a formal education course, (or lectures, seminars, workshops, and training) can only help you now.  You may be thinking too much about being a success at work and in your personal life.  You already are.  Sometimes you are too hard on yourself.  Philosophies and/or religion may be of particular interest now.  Metaphysics, spirituality, Ancient Alien Theories, and esoterica give you a lot of information to process, but you like the stimulation and you will have new things to talk about with family, friends and at get-togethers. Have an after-holiday party without the rush, pressure, and people you have to invite during the holidays.  You can always just have wine and cheese and crackers.  Make it an after-dinner party, so you know most people would have eaten.  You would love to entertain and it doesn’t have to be on a big budget.  You can ask everyone to bring a bottle of their favorite wine to cut down on the cost.  Getting out of the doldrums is just what you need.  Invite many different types of friends with different viewpoints, but be sure not to talk about politics which may be a disaster.  Put your mind towards anything you wish to do now because you have the energy and time to do it.

CAPRICORN – December 22 – January 20

Work, work, work!  You want to succeed, but give yourself some downtime where you can get a little bit of rest and relaxation.  May be a short weekend away with your partner or a date night would help you unwind. You are very detail-oriented, take pride in your work and want everything you do to be perfect and that may take its toll on you.  Not everyone needs as much perfection in their lives as you do, so don’t criticize others for not meeting your exceptionally high standards.  Ask what you can do to help them along on their assignment so it will truly be a team effort. You will then be well respected by colleagues because you will be a kind and caring employer or manager.  Spending too much time at work may put a strain on your home life. You must make time for your family, for they are wondering if they are less important to you than your job.  There is a lot of expansion in your life this year, so be sure to figure out what you need to expand:  friends, family time, job responsibilities, fun, education or travel, etc.  It may be that you want to expand a personal goal that no one else knows about.  This is the time to do it, so stop procrastinating and do something about it.  Stop thinking about it and make it a reality.                                   

AQUARIUS – January 21 – February 19

New friends and relationships come into your life this month.  Kind of go with the flow and see where it leads.  New people you meet may be able to add something that may have been missing in your life.  You’ll never know unless you try.  It seems as if love, harmony, peace and perhaps even a makeover (new makeup, new haircut or color, etc.) seems possible.  You would like to reinvent yourself a bit as you are taking on everyone else’s problems and trying to resolve them. You need to be adamant and do whatever it is you need to do in order to feel useful and constructive again. Maybe it’s time to help yourself.  Your life will be getting a bit quieter so this is a perfect time to add some enjoyment into your life with new hobbies, pastimes or diversions.  Relaxation is great, but you should push yourself out of your comfort zone. It might be a good time to join some clubs that have similar interests as you, or perhaps even some workgroups that may give you ideas for innovation and originality on the job, especially if it’s your business. You are thinking of so many things at once, but when you finally get your ideas prioritized, you will be amazed at how easily everything will come to you.  You will be accomplished in new disciplines and techniques to make your life, not only interesting but spectacular.

PISCES – February 20 – March 20

This is a very mystical time in your life. You are exploring new dimensions, new and interesting philosophies and esoterica.  Subconsciously, you want to know everything about so many subjects, but you must go slowly so that you understand the new information you are digesting.  You may also start seeing things through rose-colored glasses, so make sure you have a friend or family member confirm that what you are seeing/doing, etc., is real and not just some pipedream. Everything usually isn’t perfect, but no need to take unwarranted risks now.  See reality and recognize fantasy in your communications and transactions.   Small issues with your health may arise.  They will be minor issues, but you should see a healthcare provider to ensure you stay healthy. Perhaps a change in strength of meds or new meds may be prescribed by your doctor.  Try to do whatever is needed to keep your good health. Not a suitable time to travel, but it seems to be a good time to reunite the family in some way or help mend some hard feelings between them. Arguments may arise so you have to be able to bring a peaceful solution to the issue.  Being a peacemaker should be a full-time job for you because you are so good at it. LOL
