A LOOK into the stars for the week running until Sunday January 15.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22—January 20)
With your mind sharp next week, you are well placed to work out finances. Ask the right questions and avoid being hoodwinked by jargon. Get these matters sorted out before your mind turns to romance midweek. Are you organising a special treat for your partner at the weekend? Think really hard about what they would enjoy. It need not cost the earth!
AQUARIUS (January 21—February 19)
As next week begins, the Cancer Full Moon shines a bright light on career matters. The pressure may be on at times but if you keep things simple, stress won’t get a look-in. Seek to balance social life with work. At times, they may cross over. New relationships in this area can be beneficial. However this benefit may not show for some months. Team patience with optimism.
PISCES (February 20—March 20)
A powerful boost is given to your social life as the week begins. Romance seems to involve a lot of people. Perhaps family demands mean taking a partner along with you or enlisting their help. Older people need extra attention. Some of the much younger people in the family can easily help in some way. Mars may rock your love life next week so if you want to ask a favour, do it now.
ARIES (March 21—April 20)
The shimmering light of romance arrives with the Full Moon as next week begins. Being single never seemed so exciting and being part of a couple never so loving. Make the most of this period by showing your feelings and sharing your hopes and dreams. Spin-offs include a more sympathetic approach from work colleagues and optimism that things are about to change for the better. Finances may still be on your mind but energy is high.
TAURUS (April 21—May 21)
Pastures new beckon as Monday’s Full Moon inspires you to travel. At the moment, this may be all in the mind, but not for long. This could be the year that you take that yearned-for trip. Of course, it may take an extra-special effort to get there. Meeting a new friend is probably the spur that you need now. Getting out and about and joining in group socials seems the way forward. Don’t be shy.
GEMINI (May 22—June 21)
Finances are generally highlighted by Monday’s Full Moon. An offered promotion needs considering before you share the news with family and friends. Romances are strengthened and secrets are shared. Keep these very much to yourself! People are generally changeable and someone who shared your ideas a few weeks ago may disappoint. You have energy enough, however, to go it alone.
CANCER (June 22—July 23)
Relationships are going apace as the Full Moon kick-starts your week. Mercury gives a helping hand too. The Messenger urges you to let your feelings be known and your dreams be shared. This is not a time to shy away from a very special offer. Colleagues are not always easy to read and you need to draw them out on a personal level first.
LEO (July 24—August 23)
The Cancer Full Moon is the start of a process of renewal for you. This may carry on from some New Year’s resolutions to change your appearance or attitude to others. Avoid stress more by taking a different, more philosophical approach. What is really important to you? Why waste time worrying over things that are not? Seek out your favourite people, videos and books. Enjoy your leisure.
VIRGO (August 24—September 23)
Even as the sparkling Full Moon shines down on you on Monday, you know that next week will be special. Something fresh comes into your relationships. There is encouragement from loved ones for a new project. Thinking of joining a course or group activity? There never was a better time. Mentally, you are prepared to move on and be a part of something much bigger.
LIBRA (September 24—October 23)
Someone who can really influence your career comes along next week. It may be some days after the Full Moon on Monday, taking you by surprise. Open up your plans and hopes to this person but be wary of a romance. In this situation, it could complicate matters. Keeping business and pleasure separate is not cast in stone, however, and at a later date, things may change.
SCORPIO (October 24—November 22)
Being full of energy and enthusiasm next week, you will want to reach out to others. Communications are good. When discussing a project or idea, it seems that taking a course or somehow learning more is to your advantage. The Cancer Full Moon urges you on and exciting travel is likely.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23—December 21)
Interactions with others is highlighted, especially where there are finances concerned. Work closely together with them to get the best deals and make good decisions. You may seek to take professional advice where a business matter is concerned. Certainly you should get well organised in this area. Someone is able to help you if only the right questions are asked of them.
