Horoscopes January 2014

  • Aquarius

    Jan 20—Feb 18

    (January 20—February 18)
    Though it’s early in the new year, Aquarians are knee-deep in a full life makeover. There are many changes to ponder, but most importantly, a contract with a new employer to sign. Beware that the moon is erratic when void of course, so luckiest signing days are the 5th, 10th and 26th.

  • Aries

    March 21—April 19

    (March 21—April 19)
    When the moon is void of course, signing a contract is the ultimate no-no. But for Aries, there’s an extra special warning. Don’t be a party to anything that has been hastily planned, and take great pains to avoid hotheads. In February, you can embark on all the shoddily constructed adventures with lunatics that your heart desires.

  • Cancer

    June 21—July 22

    (June 21—July 22)
    Jupiter’s closeness to Earth on the 5th may make Cancers very emotional. A desire to learn more about roots could prompt a call to a distant relative, but don’t be surprised if they step forward first. Traditions come in all shapes and sizes; don’t be surprised if a special new one is made on the 8th.

  • Capricorn

    Dec 22—Jan 19

    (December 22—January 19)
    Venus retrograde holds a mirror up to our biggest relationships, forcing us to see them completely bare. Without makeup, devoid of any spin: How does it look? Honest Capricorns will immediately realize who is bringing them down. Strong Capricorns will make the split by the 31st.

  • Gemini

    May 21—June 20

    (May 21—June 20)
    The barely visible New Moon on the 1st is a stargazer’s dream. For a few precious moments, nothing obscures the galaxies and clusters sparkling above. The universe has a simple message for the new year: Beauty is everywhere, sometimes you just have to look up.

  • Leo

    July 23—Aug 22

    (July 23—August 22)
    A string of disappointments colored December, but Jupiter will—as the great Missy Elliott said—“flip it and reverse it.” Leos are in for a golden period of luck, but they won’t smell anything with noses stuck in the air. Fortune can spring from unlikely wells. The key is taking a deeper look, especially in spots they’d normally avoid.

  • Libra

    Sept 23—Oct 22

    (September 23—October 22)
    Mittens can help on a chilly winter day, but there’s nothing like the warmth of a beloved friend’s embrace. Libras have been lucky in love, but while their nights are nice and toasty, their friendships are freezing over. Gather the core group for a meal and quickly serve the dish they really want: A sincere apology.

  • Pices

    Feb 19—March 20

    (February 19—March 20)
    Neptune (Pisces’ ruler) has an uncanny sense of when people are being oppressed. All the weeks of being made to feel small are officially over. On the 4th, summon that little voice, think before speaking and let it rip. Wounds can be nursed, but well-placed words will not be forgotten.

  • Sagittarius

    Nov 22—Dec 21

    (November 22—December 21)
    Santa must have put “no mercury retrograde” on his Christmas list, ‘cause that wish has officially come true. With no wild planet messing up lines of communication, it’s time to initiate a difficult conversation or finally sign a contract. Vexed by two difficult options at work? Deciding by the 21st is encouraged.

  • Scorpio

    Oct 23—Nov 21

    (October 23—November 21)
    Sharper than a serpent’s tooth is an ungrateful Scorpio. Though January delivers good news in all aspects of life, that just isn’t enough. Scorpios get a chance to repent on the 30th when the new moon rises, allowing rebirth and a clean slate for all signs. Get scrubbing.

  • Taurus

    April 20—May 20

    (April 20—May 20)
    Gearing up for a career change? With Mars in the work sector, Taurans may feel a little extra aggressive. Instead of acting on it, use it as a springboard to talk with new companies. A cosmic boost of confidence goes a long way too, so interviews will be as smooth as the cocktail you celebrate with later.

  • Virgo

    Aug 23—Sept 22

    (August 23—September 22)
    The cream always rises to the top, and so too do Virgos at work. The independent nature that puts them at the head of the boardroom is also why they’re not asked to happy hour after. Take a tip from the full wolf moon on the 16th and treat the work pack well.
