January 5, 2017 Horoscope - January


The more social you are, the happier you will be. Take a trip and see friends you haven’t seen in awhile. This is a good time to purchase a new or used vehicle. The right form of transportation is important for you now.  Start planning a relaxing retreat with someone special. You will both feel good about spending some quality time together.


Your personal career begins to pick up steam. Contacts are positive and may come from unusual sources. Doing your best now can lead to big profits in the near future. But don’t neglect the romantic side of your life. You may be quite busy, but you can always make time for romance.


Your strong and positive ability to debate on important issues comes across loud and clear. Gemini who work in law related fields should have a very busy and productive month. You have much to say and much you can teach others. Be straight forward, and speak what is on your mind.


No matter what it takes, no matter what it costs, you will find a way to get what you want. Think before you speak and be wary of hurting feelings by saying things too harshly. If you can kindly explain how you feel about things, you may be surprised at how cooperative and willing people will be to assist you. 'Kindness' is your word this month.


Don't expect anyone to treat you nice if you’ve been crabby lately. Learning how to be your own best friend and treating yourself well is important this month..


Daily activities will take up much of your time this month. “This is done…what’s next…OK…that’s done, now what do I need to do?” Keep a special 'to-do' list and give yourself credit for everything you finish. Without a list, you may feel confused and a bit overwhelmed. So make that list and get moving! 


If you’ve learned a new skill lately, now is the time to practice it. A special transformation is taking place within you. Create a sacred space that belongs just to you. Shut off the phone and meditate. The results will be amazing.


No matter your true age, you may be feeling the weight of your years. Try to remember that age is just a number and it is more your mental attitude that counts. You can truly be any age you desire when you have the right positive mental attitude.. Just smile Scorpio, and know that taking good care of yourself does pay off.


Look around you — your environment should uplift you. If you're feeling the opposite, box up old items that are collecting dust, throw away old paperwork that you know you don’t need anymore, and get outdoors as much as possible. Your energy and mood will be indefinitely better when you breathe in some fresh air and have room to think and move freely.


Sometimes you just don’t feel like doing anything at all and that’s okay. You are normally a workaholic because you know there are things that have to be done. But about 6 times a year, there comes a time when you just don’t want to do a darn thing…and this is one of those times. It’s time to get some much-needed rest. Enjoy yourself; the world won’t fall apart without your strong shoulders to sit on. The rest and relaxation you take now will put you in a better mood for the future and everyone will be grateful for that!


Do you sometimes feel like an alien on a planet full of humans? Are you able to understand things that other people just don’t understand? Do you sometimes have a hard time explaining what you mean, only to have people look at you thinking, “What in the world are they talking about?” You are not alone. You should keep a journal and write your thoughts down. You may just begin to see how truly intelligent you are after all.


This is the time of year that brings deep exhaustion to all Pisces. This mean it's a very good time to just kick back, visualize, and dream. Your dreams and visions can be quite revealing now. Also, take a moment (or a couple) and exercise a bit of willpower to rid yourself of any bad habits, you’ll be a lot stronger because of it. By the time the Sun moves into Pisces at the end of this month, you’ll be ready to take on new challenges.
