January 2018 Horoscope: Get Ready for Magic
New year, new you? While a brand new year means turning over a new leaf, the stars are asking you to dig deeper into who you are (and who you want to be) Uranus turns direct after five months of retrograde motion, so you may find that projects you laid groundwork for months ago are finally beginning to take off. You may feel overwhelmed at the beginning of the month, but it’s better than being bored, right? Things are all working toward a conclusion, and the January 31 eclipse will tie up a lot of loose ends. Beware arguments, especially at the end of the month, when Mars enters Sagittarius, and tempers flare. Try to stop letting your own pride get in the way when it comes to arguing your path. Here, what else to expect in January 2018.
Aries January Horoscope
You may be dealing with some leftover drama at the beginning of the week. Try to tie up loose ends, because the event won’t disappear, and hurt feelings may need soothing over. The sixteenth brings up new career opportunities. Keep your ear to the ground before then and be aware that the interview process may be a little more low key than you’re used to—you may be getting judged by future colleagues at a happy hour, fitness clsss, or other place where you think you’re off the clock, so act appropriately! On January 31, your creativity is cranked up. You sometimes save reading, watching movies, or looking at art for “when you have time.” That time is now.
