You are feeling motivated this month Aries – which is a bit of a shocker, considering it is January! It is all work, work, work and you are really going to be throwing your all into your career. This is great, but be careful you don’t burn out altogether as pressure and tensions rise. You need to look after yourself and try not to lose your head so your health doesn’t suffer. It looks as though work and career will be the focus in your life during January, but it is important that you don’t let relationships; both loving and platonic, suffer because of this.

OK Taurus, you need to slow down in January. You’re a little bit like an excited puppy and keep jumping into situations, love, social and work, which might be a little too fantastical. You are feeling very confident, optimistic and energetic, but just try not too rush things and take a little extra time making certain decisions (trust us, you will thank us later on). Just make sure you stay grounded and make rational decisions and everything should work out for the best. Oh and one more thing, watch out for an unlikely relationship, which might grow out of an existing friendship.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, just allow yourself to be flexible and roll with the punches in order to avoid any issues. Just remember to be true to yourself and everything should work out.
