  Aries Aries (Mar 20 – Apr 19)
A new year's resolution for you may be to develop a more consistent health routine. Attending exercise or yoga classes, and eating smart will be an easier goal to achieve. The new moon of Jan. 9th may help to focus which career path to take, as your authority is being tested on the job. The need to network arises for you late Jan. thru Feb. 18th. New acquaintances become friends and friends become even closer. This social trend continues throughout Feb. As the month closes a full moon on the 22nd stimulates your psychic ability. Meditations, dreams and inner reflections guide decision-making. The last eleven days of Feb. indicates a time for you to rest and relax.    top
  Taurus Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Your new year's resolution is all about fun! The creative and enjoyment sector of your chart is being activated inspiring you to make leisure time a priority in the year.
