Aries – Balance Work and Family
This week, with the Full Moon in the fourth house, you realize that there’s no point in a professional life if your personal life is a mess. The reciprocal is also true, so that what you need is to balance work and family. Be sure that sure that the entire family understood your obligations and responsibilities at work, but also that your employer and boss understand that you have a family and you need time to spend with the ones you love. Imbalance is sometime unavoidable (for example, when one of the family members is sick or when you have an important meeting at work). But, most of the time, it is possible to be flexible and adaptable. Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your tenth house, so that you will be more organised at work. Also, Capricorn men and women have good relationships with people in high positions.

Taurus – Socially Active
This week, with the Full Moon in the third house, unexpected appointments could come up. You meet many people, you have to listen to them, to participate in your community. There are some advantages, when you are so socially active: you never know when a stranger can turn into your new best friend or business partner. So, don’t stay home and embrace every opportunity to meet new people! Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your ninth house, so this is the best time for study, until February 9th, when Mercury enters the tenth house. In the astrological house of knowledge and philosophy, it will help any intellectual activity.

Gemini – Prevent Overspending
This week, with the Full Moon in the second house, the most important advice for Gemini is to prevent overspending. The more time you spend in a store, the more you’re likely to buy. So, don’t go in the store. Or, if you have to go, just get in and get out as fast as you can. And another rule, especially important for clothes, but not only for clothes: don’t buy anything that you don’t know you need! At work, you really need to receive some positive feedback. You like to feel valued and appreciate and feedback helps you to improve and increase performance. Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your eighth house, so that Geminis become more intuitive that usual, learning to recognize and to listen their inner voices, their intuition.

Cancer – Focus on Yourself
This week, with the Full Moon in the first house, you need more attention from others and you need to focus on yourself. Define your priorities, your desires, spend some time thinking about who you are, who you were and who you want to become. Taking care of your own physical, emotional and spiritual needs is not selfish. On the contrary, enables you to be a stronger and more resilient person who can give to others – especially to the family, remembering that Cancer is the family man (and woman) of the zodiac. Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your seventh house, improving communication with your partner, but also at your workplace. Last week, there were situations when you loosed your temper at work or when you didn’t listen what your co-workers said. This week, you succeed to avoid this type of situations, considering your tone and keeping criticism constructive.

Leo – Spend Some Time Alone
This week, with the Full Moon in the twelfth house, being alone for some time (especially Thursday) may be the best thing for you. Sitting down and thinking through a problem, thinking about what caused it and how best to resolve it can result in very effective solutions. Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your sixth house. From now until February 7th, with the planet of thinking and communication transiting the astrological house of work and daily routines, you become more productive and efficient at your job. It will be easier for Leo to beat distractions and to stay focused, when working for important projects. Effective communication with co-workers will also become something normal. So, these four weeks at the beginning of the year can help those born under the sign of Leo not only to improve their performance at work, but also to be recognized as good and professional employees and co-workers. In conclusion, this is the best time to schedule important business meetings, to try to get a promotion or a raise.

Virgo – Avoid Unnecessary Secrets
This week, with the Full Moon in the eleventh house, building trust in his/her relationship is a priority for Taurus. It is important to be as open as possible and to avoid unnecessary secrets. Phrases like „I trust you“ or „I know you’ll do the right thing“ can help you build your partner’s confidence. And, of course, the most important thing is to show trust through actions: spend more time with your spouse and, when you are together, forget about anything else; turn off the laptop and forget about the smartphone – nothing can be more important than the love of your life! Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your fifth house and you are more creative than usual, in the next three weeks. It is also best time to declare your love, if you are in love and you haven’t told anything until now.

Libra – Improving Your Image
This week, with the Full Moon in the tenth house, improving their personal image becomes the most important task for Libra men and women. They know and use some little common tricks that always work: smile at everyone, use good manners and good language, make good eye contact and say goodbye to everyone as they leave. Physical appearance is also very important, so they try to define a new fashion style, dressing according to their body type and shining at every social event. Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your fourth house, the family becoming the most important thing in your life. Domestic activities will be a favourite pastime and you will spend a lot of quality time with your partner, your parents and your children.

Scorpio – Always on the Move
This week, with the Full Moon in the ninth house, those born under the sign of Scorpio are always on the move: some of them have to visit some relatives or friends, others need to go somewhere to complete some work tasks and the happiest of them go on holyday in these winter days. But one thing is certain: they will not spend too much time at home, so they will need good shoes and a full tank. Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your third house and this is an important transit for Scorpios. The communicative and flexible Mercury is the natural ruler of the third house, so it will help you a lot, for example by offering you the ability to multitask successfully. Effective communication helps you resolving old conflicts.

Sagittarius – Settle Your Debts
This week, with the Full Moon in the eighth house, it’s a good time to settle some of your financial debts. You must control your spending habits and find some ways to increase your income. Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your second house. In the next three weeks and a half, you are more practical and rational in your approach to finances. If you did some mistakes last week, (when Mercury was moving backward in the same astrological house), now it is a good time to fix them. And it is also a good time to make better financial decisions. You certainly don’t want to rush and you take your time, when you need to decide a major investment or to sign a contract. Sometimes, you miss out on a financial opportunity, but in the long run it will be in your benefit. Mercury also helps you to have great ideas at work and enhances communication and team-work. That means good relationships in the workplace and increased productivity.

Capricorn – Overcome Timidity
This week, with the Full Moon in the seventh house, this week is the time when Virgo men and women must learn to express their feelings to the ones they love. Those Capricorns who are single must overcome timidity, go out and meet someone nice. If they already have met this person, now is time to declare their love. On the other hand, those Capricorns that are already married or have a long-term partner have to pay more attention to the one they love. He must know how important is for you from the beginning of the day, after waking up in the morning, until the evening, when you’re back together after a hard day’s work. Declare your love! Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your first house. Having the planet of knowledge and intellect in your own sun sign, there are moments when you think too much. The positive aspect of this transit is that you communicate better and you overcome your shyness. Capricorn is not as introverted and shy as usual.

Aquarius – Listen to Your Body
This week, with the Full Moon in the sixth house, old habits are hard to break, but this is what you have to do– especially the habits that affect your health. Listening to your own body and its signals will make the difference. If you feel bad after coffee, you don’t have to be a doctor to understand that coffee is not good for you. It is also important to understand how much sleep you need and not only how much, but also what kind of food you need. At work, you tend to over-evaluate yourself and to lose control, because you have too many projects to work. It is essential to understand which projects are the most important and which ones can be postponed. Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your twelfth house; this is a good time for spiritual growth and meditation. You need some time on your own, far from the madding crowd.
Quote of the week for Aquarius: „Your body is your best guide. It constantly tells you, in the form of pain or sensations, what’s working for you and what’s not“ (Hina Hashmi)

Pisces – Naturally Good with Kids
This week, with the Full Moon in the fifth house, children play an important role into your life. The Full Moon makes you naturally good with kids, but not necessarily with your own. They just love you because you pay them attention and take a sincere interest in them. Of course, this is especially good news for them with careers involving children, like school teacher, paediatrician, nanny or child party entertainer. Your creativity is also enhanced by the Full Moon. Just because something has always been done that way, or used for that purpose, doesn’t mean things can’t change. So, you ask yourself „what if“, you let your creativity fly and work for you! Starting from Thursday, Mercury enters your eleventh house, you think out of the box, having some original ideas. And, additionally, you know how to present these ideas.
Quote of the week for Pisces: „Live so that when your children think of fairness, caring, and integrity, they think of you“ (H. Jackson Brown, Jr.)
