The typical Libra is going to have to keep an eye on his or her bottom line in January. There is increased activity on the financial front, which could lead to great net gains at this time. Not only will money making opportunities come to you at this time, but you have more than your usual amount of drive and power to take advantage of them. Hard work and willpower will pay off for you in ways you may not previously have foreseen or even imagined. If you've been thinking about investing in a new industry or taking on some sort of monetary responsibility, now may be the time. Both long range and short range plans made this month will likely come to fruition.
With this influx of cash, you may be tempted to spend more than you would in ordinary circumstances, especially on luxury items or things you could really live without if you wanted to. There's nothing wrong with getting for yourself a few luxuries, but you must guard against the temptation to overdue it. Overspending will be counterintuitive to the aspirations you've set for yourself and may even be your undoing unless you're very, very careful. The best idea is to pay close attention to the money coming in and the money going out and act accordingly. You sometimes have a desire to appear more successful than you really are, and a unexpected influx of cash could aggravate that unfortunate personality quirk. Whatever you do, make moderation your watchword. Others are more impressed with who you are, rather than what you can afford to buy. Make the most of that fact.
It could wind up being "old home week" sometime thins month, particularly in the latter weeks. Friends and acquaintances you have not seen for a long, long time may drop back up in your life at this time, bringing with them memories of times long past. Make sure to leave an abundance of time for long strolls down memory lane with these friends from your youth. News of former friends and associates also works its way to your ears this month. You'll find yourself thinking thoughts you've not considered in many years, and those thoughts may prompt you to consider changes in your life. If you do, make sure to consider all possible consequences carefully. The place you're at right no isn't really so bad, most likely, and even if it is, you should double check your facts before deciding to move on to someplace new.
This month you also realize that you are part of a greater community, especially on the neighborhood level. Most of those interactions will be agreeable, but if not, try to make the best of things and find the best peace you can. These are people, after all, with whom you'll likely have to share nearness for many years into the future. It's far better to get along than it is to constantly bicker. But with any luck, you'll find your relationship with your neighbors improving in a most satisfactory way throughout January, and the friendships you make now could well last for years to come.
