Things having to do with the homefront move to the fore during the month of January. Most signs should concentrate on taking care of domestic issues and concerns having to do with family matters. If you do, you'll find that you tap into unexpected rewards, both emotional and financial. If there are small household tasks that have taken a back seat during the holiday season, now's the time to take care of them so you can relax and enjoy the post-holiday relaxation. If you've been meaning to tackle some sort of redecorating project, this would probably be a good time to get started. Projects begun around this time will be finished successfully.
Don't rush through even the smallest task; you may find that taking your time and doing a good job the first time through will be the most efficient route to take in the long run. You might be surprised by how much you enjoy your little jobs if you take the time to do them correctly and to the best of your ability. Don't try to impose your opinions and ideals on other around you, especially if the audience is obviously not particularly receptive to the idea.
This is not going to be a particularly exciting or inventive month for most signs, particularly in the academic arena. Chances are you'll be feeling a bit slothful, especially in terms of critical thinking. Better to simply get through the month with as little mental challenge as possible, rather than try to make big decisions that may affect your life for years to come. When it comes to decisions, it would be a terrible mistake to make spur-of-the-moment decisions; these will not work out to your own best interest. If decisions simply must be made, make sure you examine all the possibilities first and consider well the consequences of your actions. Conversely, some ideas you've had in the past which seemed impractical suddenly come back with a new vigor and you may find you're able to utilize them after all.
This is a good month for making amends for past mistakes, slights and insults. If you have done somebody wrong—or even if they only think you have—now would be a great time to rebuild those burned bridges. It's possible that one or more of these transgressions is years old and may have been bothering your conscience. Take the plunge and apologize; you'll feel so much better once you're able to move into the new year with a clear conscience and the knowledge that you've done the best you can to make things right.
When it comes to personal relationships, January could prove to be a great months for most signs. There is definitely romance in the air and the chance to build a wonderful relationship may be just over the horizon. The love you have been waiting for could well be moving into your life at long last. This is especially true for the first two weeks of the month, after which you may find things settling in a bit. If you've been thinking about asking out that someone special, this may be the time.
If you currently in a committed relationship, you'll find new and inventive ways to keep the fires of passion burning brightly now. Even the best relationship can benefit from a little "spice" now and then and yours is no different. Take time for a night on the town with your beloved, or simply spend a quiet night at home with no one but each other for company. You will find you're able to remember the passions which drew you together in the first place!
