January 2010 Overview Horoscopes
The following are short overview horoscopes for an upcoming month, written by Annie Heese for Essential Magazine. For our detailed December monthly horoscopes, see Monthly Horoscopes from January 1.
Career and professional matters are in strong focus this month, dear Aries, but they are not always easy. While you have the opportunity to truly shine professionally, blockages can come from both outside and within. You are not as sure of yourself and uncharacteristically second-guessing your decisions these days. Rules and plans seem to be changing. Roadblocks and delays don’t help, but are mostly cleared up by mid-month, when you have a chance to start fresh. Continue to expect tests and hold off on major career decisions for now. You end January with friendlier energy.
Challenges this month mostly revolve around home, family, finances, and personal energy levels, dear Taurus. A partner is facing problems that ricochet back to you. However, opportunities to break the routine and to get away are likely to arise now and in the coming months. Family tensions and possible home repairs cannot be escaped, but a change of scene can help your overall mood. Some of you will be relocating, although it’s better to do so after March. Finances improve from mid-month, and you are feeling decidedly more independent. New friendships are opening up for you.
You can expect 2010 to be a banner year for your career, dear Gemini, with doors opening up for you and strong support from others. Late January brings a taste of that exciting energy. Until then, you have to deal with some tricky misunderstandings, delays, and miscommunications. Most of these (the more challenging ones) clear up by mid-month, but you are likely to deal with mechanical breakdowns and communication snafus, especially with friends, until mid-March. Finances are also touchy this month, with most problems finding resolution in the third week of January.
The holiday season was colorful for you, dear Cancer, and you start out the New Year with some challenges with those close to you. However, by mid-month, you are rediscovering the joys of partnership, as well as a newfound urge to explore and expand your horizons. Meeting new people and learning about the world around you are healthy escapes. Domestic responsibilities are heavy now and this year, and power struggles are likely as you attempt to bring more order to your home life.
More rethinking of your strategies when it comes to personal plans is in order this month, dear Leo. Others might not be getting you right now, and you experience delays and frustrations that force you to go over your plans and refine them. You are also learning to be more humble and patient. However, work matters improve significantly by mid-January, although you still have to deal with some power struggles on the job front, and a partnership feels stronger. As well, finances are likely to improve this year starting in January.
You are learning about what motivates you and how to express yourself more freely as a result, dear Virgo. A new beginning or a surge in your romantic life is experienced from the 13-18, although you’ll still need to iron out your differences when it comes to shared values. A romance or creative project moves forward at this point. For some of you, a child gets a lucky break or is in better humor. Saturn reminds you to save and cut back, and your body gives you a strong message to rest. This year, doors open up for love and business partnerships. Work is strong and rewarding from the 20th.
2010 will bring its share of responsibilities to you, dear Libra, but nothing you can’t handle. In fact, you will come out stronger and more self-reliant than ever before. More confidence is with you on the job in January. You will need to be careful, however, that you don’t take on too much. Friends might be difficult or hard to find when you need them most this month and the next. By mid-March, you will figure out a plan to change this. Mid-January brings a need to take charge on the home front and more pleasing circumstances surrounding your home and family. From the 18th you’ll be enjoying a more sociable time and lighter spirit.
Career demands are heavy this month, dear Scorpio. Some decisions or plans may be on hold and projects need to be redone. While you have excellent ideas for projects now, mull them over until a better time for launching them. This year, making money can actually be pleasurable, whether it’s because you are liking what you do more, or monetizing a favorite pastime or hobby. Entertainment and leisure opportunities open up for you this year, starting in January. Your romantic life picks up speed, you’re feeling more creative, and your interests expand.
As adventurous as you are, dear Sagittarius, January pulls you closer to home and family. This is a trend that continues much of the yearfamily and domestic activities bring joy and increase. Challenges with friends over values are likely to crop up now and throughout 2010. This has you questioning who is a true friend…and who isn’t. While it may not feel great initially, you’ll be strengthening true friendships this year. Some delays occur with travel, education, and possibly in-laws. January is strong, however, for money matters, with a windfall, gift, or bonus likely.
January is a personally important month for you, dear Capricorna time for reinventing yourself. While there are more career pressures to deal with, you have very strong powers of attraction and can form a beneficial friendship this month. A year of learning and improving your skills is in store, as well as increased charm in your manner and the way you express your ideas. Gifts, pay increases, or other bonuses are likely forthcoming this month. However, financial challenges are likely when it comes to debts, alimony, or a partner’s income.
Until the 18th, dear Aquarius, life is quiet as it should be. It’s time to catch up on your sleep , pay more attention to your dreams and intuition, and deal with some endings that need your attention. While the New Year may not start with a bang for you, from the 18-20 and forward, others pay close attention. You are more magnetic and personally popular. Some surprises are in store at work this month. Now and over the next few months, your bank account may increase, but so could your urge to splurge!
Barriers have been coming down for you in the past years, dear Pisces. With jovial Jupiter moving into your sign this month (and staying there much of 2010), you’ll be enjoying a lucky streak of sorts. Your confidence and optimism increase. Career and professional matters will soar this year, although now and until March, backtracking in your work and other frustrations may be in store. Some financial tensions are likely, coming from others draining your resources. Hold on to your money. January is excellent for making new beneficial friendships and connections.
