The January 4 Full Moon pits family concerns against work demands. Work may be trying to drive you crazy, but you don't have to fall for it. Be calm and clear, and don't get rattled. Wednesday, January 14, and Thursday, January 15, avoid strife or disagreements with a boss or authority figure. Try to see things from their side and let it go. The New Moon on January 20 scrambles your social life and rearranges some alliances or friendships. You may be able to read between the lines and see other people's secret agendas. Don't lose your temper or cling to what's old and stale.
Love - Romantic
You are really, really, really feeling romantic, from the looks of things on the 1st and 2nd. Or, if not outright romantic, then just plain content. Which is a close cousin of romance! After all, there's nothing that gets you in the mood for a candlelit dinner quite like being in a deep-breathing, receptive, joyful state of mind. You know? There looks to be a lot of flowers in your life on the 6th and 7th. Are you giving somebody special a beautiful bouquet? Or is someone who has a big crush on you gifting a lovely potted plant? Either way, it's fantastic. Challenges are just part of the package, when it comes to romance, so embrace them on the 13th and 14th. Then embrace your honeybee! Go ahead and crawl back under the covers on the 18th and 19th. You need some serious 'you' time! Your amazing date ideas meet with a great deal of approbation on the 24th and 25th. Romance is, like, totally in the air on the 28th, 29th and 30th. Remember to remember all the little details about them on the 31st.
Business - Money
Have you always wanted to paint landscapes? Paint houses? Paint the town red, but, like, professionally, say in the capacity of a party planner or extremely hands-on social secretary? Well, why aren't you living your dream? Your month gets off to a super auspicious start on the 1st and 2nd, and now is a great time to turn your career dreams into career realities. You know? So get out that paintbrush! Put on your party hat! And go! Communication is key to just about every single work-related enterprise, and that means you're in luck on the 6th and 7th, because everything you communicate you communicate with panache. Hence, your projects are pretty panache-y, too. Great! If a challenge presents itself on the 13th and 14th, take a deep breath, consider your actions carefully, then meet it. Yay! You'll figure out how to paint a house without a brush, yet. Give yourself plenty of down-time on the 18th and 19th. You need it! Your ideas are really, totally, utterly amazing on the 24th and 25th, and you are right to believe in them. Romance trumps work on the 28th, 29th and 30th, and that's just fine. Work hard, but don't forget to play, too, on the 31st.
