Happy New Year!

It’s a great start to the year for Taurus and Gemini. Read on for all the details.


*only for entertainment purposes



You’ve got everything in hand this month along with some great new beginnings!

The month starts off with you feeling really quite competent and in control of what seems like chaos to very one else. You’ll be the one everyone turns to for direction, advice and inspiration. Money is there, but not always readily available. This is a good thing as you might overspend at the beginning of the month otherwise.

The middle of the month may bring the release of a contract which has been impeding you, or the renewal of one more in your favor. Any heaviness of spirit you may have felt earlier in the month will disappear. If you’ve been searching for a new job, you’re likely to find one before the month ends.

The last third of the month holds some wonderful news. You might win an art raffle of some other small and slightly embarrassing prize, which nevertheless will have you smiling. You might also receive long awaited news about love and new creative projects. One thing’s for sure, whatever the news is, it will make 2017 seem like one of your best years already.



A bit of a dour start to the month. There might be lots of harsh words flying around, bad judgements and more accusations about lack of responsibility. That success which was almost within reach has shifted a little away…

The first part of the month may bring some legal or career problems. Laws and legislation will be causing you much stress, and your new boss might be very, very demanding of your time. He/She really does not know the meaning of: ‘just give me a break’. Arguments with your spouse or ex may also bring up issues which should have long been dealt with. This is what running away brings you. Take note and resolve to not let domestic issues slide as you’ve done in the past.

Mid-month brings back your self-confidence and teaches you more about boundaries – if they are too lax, too strong or just right. You might want to shift some of those boundaries, especially related to your time as someone or something may be taking advantage of your time.

The month ends on a slightly brighter note. Hard-to-please boss might actually compliment you on your job or offer you an unexpected opportunity you’ve long been waiting for. This is all good, but don’t expect it to be a bed of roses as there’s much hard work to do, and if there’s a change in location, it may well be to a place where the sun don’t shine much.

Be brave, you’ve got this.



You’re still clearing out much of the old, and haven’t really noticed that it’s a new year energetically. The last of 2016’s business and issues are still a concern, but you can just about see the end of the pile of stuff you’ve got to get through.

The month begins with a feeling of being ignored or left-out of things. You may feel like your partner is ignoring you or that nobody minds what you say…And then you’ll receive a surprise gift – a new dress or shirt which proves otherwise. There might also be a surprise party or a treat which soothes your soul and makes you a little wistful.

Around mid-month you’ll be in a much better space mentally. All the drama and trauma of 2016 and will no longer affect you or bring you down. You’ll be able to speak frankly about matters which are concerning you, and you’ll stop retreating from confrontations you may have feared. Things wouldn’t be half as daunting as you thought they’d be.

As you get to the end of the month, you’ll be able to breathe a sigh of relief. Your greatest efforts from over the last ten weeks will begin to bear fruit and you can toast yourself on a job well done. You might also pay off a small debt (in money or in kind) and will finally feel that a new year has begun.



Okay, so your big dreams didn’t materialise as you’d hope. Time to let that go and focus on the more mundane as the new year begins. There’s some hope for later in the year, but for now, you’ve got to get your energy levels up again.

As the month begins, you find yourself in more cheerful waters. Whatever or whoever was bringing you down no longer has you doubting yourself. Your mind is clearer even if the weather is not.

Towards mid-month and just after, you may feel a little rebellious at work. You don’t want the same office as last year, you don’t want the same parking space as last year, you so don’t want last year… But be reasonable, you still have some chaff to sift through before you can find the metaphorical gold you seek. And you have to admit you’re much better off than Chad next door. Bide your time, it’s coming.

The month comes to an end with some success. You may find you’re accepted into a fellowship or program you hadn’t thought you stood a chance of gaining entrance into, or you start planning and gathering the elements for that great business idea you’ve had.

Bide your time. It’s coming.



Aww, Taurus, you have like the best start to the year! Someone loves you very, very much and is trying to find the best way to show this. Not that there aren’t any challenges this month, but they’ll pale into insignificance with all the good stuff going on.

The new year begins with you looking and feeling great! Lots of compliments come your way and children and animals adore you. So if you’re allergic to either, you’ll want to carry some anti-histamines. You’ll also feel very respected and may even be given the royal treatment. Perhaps someone is taking you out for a high-tea!

Around mid-month you’ll have your first challenge and opportunity of the year. Some deliberation is called for, so please don’t be too impulsive. Neither should you delay the decision too long. Timing is critical so follow your intuition, weigh it together with the facts and shake your lucky dice just to be sure. Don’t let others influence you unduly. A misstep now may lose you more time and face than you can comfortably afford just now.

As January draws to an end, you might have to fight for your rights and find yourself justifying your decisions. This doesn’t make your decisions wrong, just hard for some to digest. So you may no longer be the most popular person in the office, but that’s okay if the work is getting done in time. Yes, this will go on your permanent record, and in a good way.

Be strong, but not too stubborn. Let the other person be heard as well.



A better start to the year than you would have believed a few weeks ago. You, too, will be Mr/Ms Popular, drawing lots of admiration. Pity you may not notice it all as you’re so stuck into your studies and projects. And that thing/person you’re pursuing (yes that one) is almost within your grasp.

The new year brings an abundance of good stuff your way – new clothes, new shoes, new look and lots of treats with family and friends. You’ll steal any show without even trying, so beware the green-eyed ones…not that you’ll notice as you attention is on that thing/person you’re pursuing (yes, that one).

Around mid-month, studies and money turn serious and consume almost all your attention. It’s a good time for research as you’re in the mood to dig, and dig deep to get all the information and knowledge you need. And what you unearth will bring you satisfaction. If archaeology is your new passion, you may well discover something remarkable which will occupy you for years to come.
Pets (especially dogs) will also be in a digging mood, so fence off your prized veggie-patch carefully.

The month comes to an end with you in a stronger position than you’d hope to be. Your vitality will be high, and your presentations will go well. Others will look to you for leadership. Health will be good as well. It’s a great start to the year!



Darn it! Why do the goal posts keep moving for you? While the year begins on a sociable note, the rest of the month calls on more personal resources than you may be willing to give.

The new year brings new friends, lots of gathering (some virtual) and perhaps a love message from a fire sign. You may also find a new way of communicating – joining a new social media platform or a new sports or social club. It’s also a good time to complete creative projects. Internet dating will also go well.

Around mid-month your beliefs may shock others, or you may experience a mild shock, probably related to a family member. Your world will change, but not in a violent way. Perhaps you’ll get news of a parent’s health problem or your project may be delayed, or you may finally get that scholarship or work visa you’ve been hankering after for ages, or that real cutie may actually notice you exist! Not all shocks are bad, but why now, just when you’re so comfortable? Darn it!

The month ends with some breathing space. Your dream may be slightly delayed till the end of February, giving you ample time to digest the news, and make plans and preparations. It’s an exciting start to the year so get as much sleep and me-time as you can.



Poor Leo, why are you starting the year with such a frownie-face. Never mind, things will get sexy for a while, and then you’ll have to return to the drawing board if you really want to realise your dreams this year.

The year begins with a larger tummy and maybe hitting the gym will be a good idea. Your romantic partner/spouse will be very attentive and demanding, and neither of you will want to leave the Build-It store, the furniture store, the new car-dealership, the January clothing sales…Yes, things are important to you this year, and you’re determined to get them.

Mid-month jolts you into second gear with a challenge. It may seem unsolvable at first. Once you stop ranting and raving, you’ll be able to see a way through, but perhaps not using your usual methods. Take this new idea to the boss/client and be surprised at their reaction.

The month ends with your frownie-face turning shifty-eyed. Someone (could it possibly be you?) is not being quite straight with everyone. This may just be your paranoia, but it’s a good idea to upgrade your internet security and anti-virus too. And no, you don’t do shifty-eyed very well. Go back to frownie-face and you’ll get to the bottom of things much faster.



An unsettling start to the year. You may feel that something’s missing from your life just now, and begin exploring less traditional concepts in religion and study. You’ll also want to renovate or decorate this month.

The year begins with the feeling that a vital part of your life is missing or inactive. Is it a romantic partner, children or the feeling that you aren’t following your true life path? Reunions are harder to arrange this month, and finding time to catch up with old friends will prove more difficult than expected. Mostly though, you’ll be craving a romantic partner if single, or more time with your beloved if not.

Mid-month has you looking at less traditional beliefs and ways of getting things done. You may innovate or otherwise recycle old ideas and items, perhaps at the displeasure of more traditional thinkers. You’ll also consider a less traditional relationship, perhaps with someone who has very different religious beliefs to you.

The end of the month brings much dissatisfaction with your immediate environment. You might have new cupboards or cabinets put in, or throw out old and worn furniture to revamp your home. You’ll have lots of fun mixing and matching styles, and will try out different styles and feels around your home to find one you’re most comfortable with. So don’t stress, experiment.



An emotional month for you may bring an overwhelm just when you thought the fun would start.

The year begins with a yearning for someone’s attention, perhaps someone who is quite far from you distance-wise. You’ll be looking for missed opportunities and second chances, or perhaps giving one yourself. You’d like to comfort someone who seems to be hurting, but you don’t want to step over any boundaries either. Your intuition is right; give this person some space, but let them know you’re there for them as well.

By mid-month you might suffer a crisis of faith – perhaps in yourself. You may be spreading yourself a little too thin, and so may have bitten off more than you can chew. Yes, it’s good to be there for others, to be the shoulder everyone needs to cry on, but you too need some space — some breathing and centering time — so be sure to not short-change yourself this month.

Towards the end of the month, you may be inundated with memories, both sweet and sour. Deal with any emotions this brings up by reaffirming your present and your commitment to your future. You can sense your life is changing for the better, and these are the old ghosts saying goodbye. By mid February, you’ll be easily ensconced into your new life and no longer troubled by past issues or regrets.



‘So close yet so far’, that’s what may be your mantra this month as Mercury retrograde plays awful tricks on you. It’s only because you been asking for a massive change, and all this bother is now preparing you for it.

You may have to act quickly to avoid a bad situation. Be careful when driving and remember to always wear your seat-belt. There are shuffles and quick-steps at work as well. A new boss or a take-over doesn’t help things run as smoothly as usual. Storms will also unsettle you and possibly give you reason to reconsider your home, your transport or your communication devices.

Mid-month brings lots of missed or misunderstood communications. Your spam folder will be unusually fill with really important messages you may be waiting on for days. You partner may not understand what you’re saying either, so double-check that everyone is on the same page.

The month ends with a celebration you really don’t want to attend. It’s a new year, but the conversation is old, the food is the same and your boredom is becoming so obvious that it borders on the impolite. Stay at home and play a computer game or watch a new movie you’d never consider watching otherwise. It’s less sociable, but it may save a friendship or two.



So you’re feeling a little stranded, marooned even. Hardly the fun, exciting start to the year you’d been so looking forward to, but at least you’re forced to stand still and reflect for a few moments…or days.

The year begins with a sense of stagnation, or even resentment at having to take a step or two backwards. It’s not a good idea to push for anything, make new travel arrangements, or try new methods of communication. It feels very much like you’re stuck in transit, sitting in traffic or lost a map. Chill and enjoy being a passenger. Wind down the window and smell the roses (or car fumes). It will remind you how much you have that you can be grateful for.

Around mid-month, you may realise that your cherished wish is going to be delayed again. Something’s not quite as perfect as you’d wish it be, and if you’re getting engaged, the jeweler has made a rather large mistake with the ring. Or, you may be waiting on others who just don’t have the same sense of urgency as you do.

The month comes to an end with more settled feelings. The heartache is healed. Your anger has died down, your sense of urgency is put into perspective, and you can be your own amiable self again. And while it may look like your passion is diminished, it’s merely simmered down waiting to energise you later in the year.
