Your Weekly Horoscopes Are Here: January 3rd – January 10th

See what the stars have in store!
If you celebrate your birthday this week:
 
Your Year Ahead
What an amazing time it’s been – a period of dramatic change.  You, more than anyone, have been vulnerable to the cosmic madness that’s plagued our planet.  Major changes affecting work and home have either merged these two interests or split them wide apart.  Either way, it’s been disruptive.  But here’s a year worthy of celebration.  Love and professional matters appear back on course, with a delighted Jupiter cheering on both passion and financial flamboyance.  You’re also encouraged to take more of a gamble, which could mean a new job or a complete change of occupation. The biggest surprise this year will be just how well you cope with the unexpected.  
 
 
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day:  Sunday 5th
 
Be very careful when tackling your finances this week.  Someone might be nursing a grievance and they’re looking for some kind of pay-back.  Still, there’s no one quite like you to scoff in the face of any kind of adversity.  Somehow, you often turn any misfortunes into a success story.   Better still, you may now find someone to play with.  
 
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day:  Tuesday 7th
 

If money’s been a constant battle, you’ll love this week.  The cosmos declares war on poverty-consciousness.  Breathe a sigh of relief as well deserved luxuries come well within reach.   There is a catch, though.  If something, or someone, instinctively feels too-good-to-be true, it probably is.  Discernment is the key.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:  Saturday 4th
 

You have an expert eye for quality and opportunity, although this week others may question your direction.  Don’t be dissuaded by their lack of vision.  Ambitious Geminis can spot a winner that many would underestimate, be it personal or professional.  So turn a deaf ear to others’ uninspired warnings, and listen to your instincts. 

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day:  Sunday 5th
 

Everyone seems to have lost their sense of humour right now, even you.  Early to mid week, in particular, your psyche enters one of its rare meltdown phases.  It’s the great outdoors that calls – especially if you need to thrash things out in solitude.  The world won’t fall apart if you take some time out – but you might if you don’t.

Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day:  Monday 6th
 
If you don’t know which way to turn, sit still and let events take their course.  There’s little point in taking action when you’re unsure of the direction you should head.  The best thing you can do is find some good company and a sympathetic ear.  This week allows some down time, which helps you to catch up on personal and professional stocktaking.  
 
Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:  Saturday 4th
 
Virgos finally tackle the backlog of work and chores that have been piling up, but you’re not propelled solely by the work ethic.  A more likely motivation is your longing for luxury, which needs financing. You may, however, find yourself battling with someone in a position of power.  Venus compensates by introducing an intriguing new friend.
 
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:  Wednesday 8th
 
Establishing a routine has been difficult, and self-discipline a bore.  You may be fretful about finances.  Not surprising, as you’ve recently been presented with a not-so-great report on how you’ve managed your funds.  If necessary, rein in the plastic and nurture nest eggs.  Professionally, stay open to new opportunities.
 
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:  Friday 3rd
 
Scorpios could feel disappointed by something that hasn’t taken off as you thought it might.  But don’t let this sober reality check be the wrecking ball to your fantastic ideas.  If you have to dial back and make sure all the fundamental pieces are in place, so be it – just don’t give up.  Instead, consider this as some much needed “timeout”.
 
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day:  Thursday 2nd
 
Loved ones seem to have unruly spending habits at the moment.  Patiently explain to them the income-versus-expenditure formula.  When all the sale shopping is completed, confiscate all lines of credit.  There may be tantrums, but they will be grateful soon enough.
 
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 
Best Day:  Friday 3rd
 
A lagging cosmos has doused your enthusiasm for some time now, and you’ve felt held back. So consider it perfect timing when this week offers to unleash restrained ambitions and talents. Financially, your bank balance looks to be replenished.  Watch, too, for an opportunity to make the most of work contacts. 
 
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Wednesday 8th
 
This isn’t a time for quiet contemplation.  Instead, push for the things you want.  You’re riding in the slipstream of benevolent planetary forces and hopefully you’ll use this week for what it is – a ticket to success.  Expect some extra cash too.  In relationships, make all your daring moves by week’s end.  After that, the magic could wane.  
 
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:  Monday 6th
 

This week, short-term plans attract you more.  In matters of the heart, singles catch the attention of someone special.   For couples, there could be pressure to fall in line with a partner.  If so, maintain a strong sense of independence and equality.  At work, too, if you’re dealing with someone unreasonable – stand your ground.
