HOROSCOPES – Georgia Nichols

Your stars for January 2016

Aries (March 21-April 19) This is the only time of year when the Sun is at the top of your chart, shining down on you with a flattering light. In reality, this means people in power and authority will see you as competent and talented, which is why you might be approached to take on an extra job. Everyone thinks you’re the cat’s meow! (Do nothing to dissuade them of this point of view, by the way.) Meanwhile, grab opportunities to travel. Chances to improve your job are waiting to be plucked.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) This month travel. You want a chance to discover adventure and see new places and meet new faces! If you cant travel, then be a tourist in your own city, which I have tried and it’s fantastic. (No one is more surprised than me.) Book a hotel and see the sights – the whole enchilada. It can be a one-night getaway. Enjoy romance, social diversions, parties, sports, playful times with children and yes – vacations! Fun, fun, fun! (Good food, drink and sex are de rigueur.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20) You are intense this month. Yes, you will feel passionate about sex but you feel passionate about everything! You see things in black and white. ‘I love this.’ ‘I hate that.’ Fortunately, fair Venus is opposite your sign, which smoothes things out for you with partners and close friends. Continue to look for ways to improve your home or benefit from the buying and selling real estate because this is what you can do. Likewise, family is warm and mutually generous.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) This is the only time all year when the Sun sits opposite your sign, which means it is as far away from you as it can get. Since the Sun is your source of energy, this means that you will be more tired and fatigued. Therefore, this month, you need more sleep. This opposing Sun also gives you a chance to objectively see your style of relating to others. You can learn something. A work-related romance might spring up now, due to the loving influence of Venus, which can also attract more money or praise on the job.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) This month, you will party hard and work hard. You will put lots of energy into fun times and entertaining diversions. Amusements, love affairs, romantic flirtations, sports events and playful times of children will be tops on your list. However, all this fun takes organization! Someone has to provide transportation, get the tickets, make reservations, buy the food, get the drinks and make it all happen so that everyone says, ‘Ha ha, it is to laugh!’ This theatrical magic takes planning and you will work hard to organize everything!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) This is the one time of year when you eat what you want even though a little voice on your shoulder is whispering warnings about suuuuugar! But hey, it’s your turn for vacations, flirtations, romantic téte-á-téte’s, the theatre, movies, sports events and playful times with children. Many will entertain at home more than usual and you will redecorate and tweak your digs to show off your elegant taste and prodigious efforts. And why not? With Jupiter in your sign – you shine!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) This month home, family and your personal life are your top priority. Many of you will focus on a parent more than usual. All of you will feel comfy in familiar surroundings, especially if someone else has vacuumed, dusted and polished the furniture. When everything looks sparkling and lovely, and decorated as only you can do – you enjoy your home. This is when you love to relax and remind yourself how fortunate you are. Of course, fair Venus will invite the hordes to create a slushy mess at the front door and make your kitchen look like a bomb went off. Oh well. (If you put out fresh flowers and light candles, you don’t have to dust.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Strap on your roller-skates because you’re busy with short trips and visits with friends and siblings plus a long To-Do list with increased reading, writing and studying. Many will shop for beautiful things for yourself and loved ones, perhaps taking advantage of sales after the holidays. ‘This is gorgeous and so cheap, I can’t resist!’  The pace of your days will accelerate but you will enjoy it. Some will see ways to earn more money on the side or boost your income. Meanwhile, life swoons dizzily along with your increased popularity.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Shop for wardrobe goodies because you will like what you see in the mirror. This lovely influence lasts until Jan. 23. Fortunately, this month, your focus is on cash flow, earnings and your possessions. You will give lots of thought to what you buy, what you want to give, what you want to get rid of, and what you want to keep. At a deeper level, youíre wondering about your values in life, in other words, what really matters? If you don’t know what matters, how will you know how to make important decisions?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) This is your hour to shine! Use this month to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. You have the advantage of attracting favourable situations and important people to you, so make the most of this! Many of you will travel and will continue to want to travel for months ahead because of Jupiter this year and next. Take advantage of this prompting from the universe because travel will be joyful in the next six months. The way to use astrology is know how to time events and activities so that you get the most bang for your buck.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) This month, you are best served to be low-key because you need to catch your breath before your birthday arrives. Indeed, your true New Year begins with your birthday. And that is the time when you really need to make resolutions that are meaningful to you. Therefore, use the month ahead to examine your life and scrutinize the past year so that you know what you want in your New Year. Meanwhile, Venus will attract friendly, fun-loving, times! In fact, a friend could become a lover. (This is often confusing for you.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) This month is full of fun-filled activities with friends and groups. This is the perfect time to share your hopes and dreams for the future with someone because their feedback will help you. Meanwhile, Venus, will attract a romantic interlude with someone older or richer, or someone who acts like a mentor to you. Others will ask for your input about office redecorating, furniture placement, layout, design, PR work or how something should look. People in authority are impressed with your diplomacy and charm. (It’s all smoke and mirrors.)
