Your January Horoscope

From relationships to career goals, find out what this month has in store for you with astrologer Fiona Graham’s predictions.

Aries  (21st March – 20th April)

You always mean business in life, and in love. After the festive dust has settled, embrace your chances to improve domestic life, and to strengthen family ties. You will feel reenergised if you make long-term plans for an exotic adventure during that future time when freedoms will be less restricted. This is a time for pooling material resources too. Someone’s seductive overtures may turn your head but do your homework on this – the current mood is best suited to reliable, mature connections. From the 20th courageous words will release someone else’s romantic spirit and you’ll have a genuine chance of greater intimacy. You’ll find that flirtatious fun is in the air, whatever your relationship status. Always do your research to figure out any hidden motives. This month, mutual appreciation is written in the stars.

Taurus (21st April – 21st May)

You’ll enter the New Year longing for action but must wait for others to agree to any major changes. A clash between life at work and home is challenging, but also very productive. A quick-witted personality will offer glamorous versions of reality, and it’s up to you to stay grounded while not being negative. A little fantasy feeds the soul, and some light-hearted entertainment is clearly on offer. Long-term partnerships should flourish from the 19th and one declaration is likely to be mind-blowing. Before long, it will be someone else’s turn to get serious about commitment, and your role will be to set the boundaries. Explore your dreams freely, as someone wins you over with inspired moves. Yet being too idealistic has created problems in the past; if this reoccurs, take charge and strike a balance between stability and your heart-felt desires. 

Gemini (22nd May – 21st June)

From early January it’s time to expand your horizons. This may mean investing more effort into family relations, considering a house move, or starting new ventures involving your loved ones. Stimulation is a romantic must, and by midmonth relationships will thrive on flexibility and leaps of faith. But frank communication is also essential. You may well ‘have it all’ if you follow your own heightened intuition. By the 18th attractive distractions will also affirm your own sex appeal, at the same time intense discussions are required to tackle old demons. Now is the time to banish them for good. Your own self-discipline will help stop someone else from getting carried away. Yet being swept off your feet is also possible. Connecting with another person creates a mystical union, but make sure you protect your individuality at all times…

Cancer (22nd June – 22nd July)

In order to achieve harmony at home in early 2021, you must share your hopes and fears with loved ones. From the 10th embracing the spirit of adventure is the boost that everyone around you needs. Relationships will flourish with clear and open communication. However, try to control the occasional urge to be pessimistic when others are carried away by big ideas, especially around midmonth. This may well be the time for new beginnings romantically too or re-igniting the spark with someone. You’ll also get to the bottom of a special person’s secrets, perhaps with racy repercussions. Being more in tune with all of this helps you understand your own needs better. By the 31st events reveal what really makes you and someone else tick. Compromise proves to be essential for intimacy, and for stronger bonds. 

Leo (23rd July – 23rd August)

New Year resolutions, and making personal changes, involve laying old ghosts to rest. From the 10th a compassionate approach will rejuvenate friendships, and some kind of shakeup is definitely positive. A heart-to-heart is therapeutic on so many levels. Relationships might be complex, yet also reveal hidden treasures. By the 15th your actions will prompt a rebellious – yet enlightening – response from someone. It seems there is never a dull moment! Abandoning old assumptions is the key to January’s success. Your heart may well leap at someone’s admiration, or at the prospect of getting to know someone new. However, challenges are inevitable in various areas of life. By the 30th a partnership’s direction is more established, and revelations demand an open mind. You are adored, so can be honest in terms of your own feelings.  

Virgo (24th August – 22nd September)

From the get-go in 2021, some outstanding issues will be resolved bringing positive results sooner than expected. A genuine combination of love and mutual trust goes far as early as the 6th.You may need to get set for a romantic roller-coaster ride. By the 15th, a tug of love leads to tension yet also excitement, which is revealing at the very least. It is time to rejuvenate an existing commitment, or risk taking a chance on a new kind of relationship. With courage, your love life could take off by the 24th and you’ll truly understand that the highest rewards come from rising to the toughest challenges. In late January you’ll be surer of your ground and can tackle all kinds of practical issues. Truthful interaction moves mountains, and this month’s experiences will deepen your understanding of the relationships you actually need.

Libra (23rd September – 23rd October)

There is no need to make heavy weather of complicated times. Encourage change, and you’ll get to the nub of what’s best for everyone this January. By the 8th you’ll see that your relationships are more loving and supportive, if you invest the effort others seem to expect right now. Around midmonth the strong emotions you feel will inspire lively responses in someone else: this is the moment of truth you actually want, although none of it seems to be predictable. Romance can blossom, and on the 26th someone’s attention may astonish you, so be absolutely sure you want it. By now you should be more confident of your own position, so you can make room for drama and extra passion. Be sure to recognise how much you are admired and aim to do some soul searching of your own. You can place your trust in speaking from the heart. 

Scorpio (24th October – 22nd November)

As soon as the festive season is over, opening up to your loved ones will be a wise move. A domestic makeover after the 7th will also be therapeutic, and at the same time you may discover intriguing family secrets. It’s time to inject new life into all relationships; you’ll readdress old habits in long-term partnerships or via adventurous virtual trysts with appealing strangers. From the 18th you may encounter differences between your own wishes and another person’s. As a result, flexibility is vital – you might in fact find that you acquire new tastes. Meet the challenges posed, as your relationships will benefit. However, someone’s jealousy will increase the heat and may mean it’s ‘make or break’ time. In late January commitment issues are likely to come up – someone surprises you, while you will need to take a leap of faith.

Sagittarius (23rd November – 21st December)

Optimism and risk-taking always inspire you; yet keeping your feet on the ground now will have sublime repercussions too. Resolving misunderstandings clears the air from the 7th. Once accomplished, feeling extra creative will prompt practical improvements at home, and lots of innovation. Your appetite for adventure inspires someone else around the 14th – a heady cocktail for excitement. Relationships are bound to be enriched and have the potential to heal old wounds. After the 23rd the scene is set for all kinds of fresh starts, and emotions may run high when confessions are made. A feel-good moment will work wonders in late January, and someone can’t help playing the hero/heroine. Soon you’ll realise that someone appreciates your finest qualities, and by knowing their innermost feelings you’ll be able to reconcile fantasy with reality.

Capricorn (22nd December – 20th January)

Giving and receiving freely are especially important this New Year. However, in early January you clearly need to speak out, as others don’t necessarily read minds like you do. Expect all kinds of entertainment – at unlikely times – as the month unfolds. By the 14th wearing your heart on your sleeve will appeal to many people, but don’t offer too much of yourself to someone who is undeserving. Your inbuilt caution will engender a more mature approach from most people. After the 22nd revelations will indicate how a relationship could work. You are fired up by a mission of your own, yet also desire sweet intimacy. Be prepared for sultry charms, plus some fireworks too. By the 31st someone’s appreciation is unmistakeable, and a great rapport is a true tonic. If your choices so far have shown real wisdom, your investment in love will pay high dividends.

Aquarius (21st January – 18th February)

You have a genius for living life with originality, and long may that continue! Responsibility rests on your shoulders now, and sheer determination reaps many rewards. Yet from the 4th, avoid letting work sap energy that is needed at home. This month it may be tempting to idealise your loved ones, while being too hard on yourself. If you keep your feet on the ground, a fantasy is more likely to materialise by the 16th. Sooner or later someone special will blow you away. Late January brings new love or unexpected romantic gestures in an established relationship. Lively arguments will actually be a healthy sign of shared emotional truths. Your life will expand if you conquer fears of confronting others and face up to positive and essential conflict. Take someone else’s frankness on the chin too – the spirit of compromise will build on all your hard work.

Pisces (19th February – 20th March)

2021 is the year to fulfil your own dreams, rather than other people’s. Postponed improvements become top of your list at home, so try to do all you can before other commitments demand all your attention. As soon as the 7th the heat is on for your emotional fulfilment and feeling free to express yourself. You’ll test the waters of someone’s commitment to discover if they deserve your undying devotion. By the 18th a friendship will also show its true colours - for better or for worse. This month adds spice to all kinds of interactions and presents new possibilities that break old rules. Calculated risks lead to positive surprises, and you’ll be wise to respond to someone’s genuine respect for you. By the 29th juggling personal issues with other expectations is stressful but working through this makes your closest ties unshakeable.
