Forecast for January

January is for you to connect with your near and dear ones. And you have been missing the togetherness.
The month begins with a new moon in Capricorn, which will encourage you to start afresh. Maybe spend some valuable time with your family (the full moon later in the month will certainly help you in this, and you know that you need this time out). Maybe embark on a new life journey. There is a lot of churn going on in your mind regarding changes that you want to make. So take this time to think. The time out may give you some much-needed insight into where you want to go and what you want to do.

The new moon will focus your mind on matters you still need to attend to on the professional front.
But as the month chugs along, use this self-reflection to reboot for the year – set new goals, make new memories. Be confident and keep moving forward. You will emerge stronger. Details can be known through an individual analysis for which you can contact me.
