Aries – Improve Social Skills
The eleventh house is associated with group activities. So, with the New Moon in the eleventh house, Aries really has to improve his social skills and competences. The most important advice for these natives ruled by the warrior Mars is to avoid inflammatory subjects: don’t ask personal financial questions, avoid politics and religion, do not ask a woman about her age or if she is pregnant or just she’s getting fat! With your ruler, Mars, transiting the first house, Aries men and women feel more energetic than they have in some time. They are especially enthusiastic about new beginnings, at work, in relationships or in any other field. They discover a new hobby, but also some new friends with similar interests. They try a new dish, at a restaurant they never visited before, they listen some new music or go to the cinema to watch the premiere of a movie starring their favourite actor or actress.
Quote of the week for Aries: „You can make more friends in two months by becoming really interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you. Which is just another way of saying that the way to make a friend is to be one“ (Dale Carnegie)

Taurus – Self-discipline
Self-mastery and self-discipline become very important for Taurus men and women, if they want to reach their careers goals. „We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort“ said Jesse Owens, the four-time Olympic gold medallist. Self-discipline is not easy for Taurus, ruled by Venus, a planet associated with love and comfort. But, at least for a week, it can be done! At the end of this week, it is more important for those born under the sign of Taurus to stay focused on personal projects. They have to understand what is really important for them, not for others, and to prioritize their activities and to set up some goals for each project.

Gemini – Ruled by Curiosity
With the New Moon in the ninth astrological house, Gemini needs to expand beyond the regular experiences. Visiting remote and beautiful places, enjoying extreme sports, participating in strange rituals – this is the type of activities for Geminis, during this week. And this is not something unpleasant for this sign, usually characterised by curiosity. Group activities are also recommended for Geminis, this week. Teamwork and socializing with colleagues after work is also important for those born under this sign. They will get to know the human side of their boss and of their co-workers. However, we have a warning for Geminis: when joining co-workers for happy hour, try to consume as little alcohol as possible! You even don’t have to consume an alcoholic beverage to be a part of the gathering – nobody will mind if you drink a soda or a non-alcoholic cocktail. What is really important is to be together, to socialize and to have fun after work.
Quote of the week for Gemini: „Satisfaction of one’s curiosity is one of the greatest sources of happiness in life“ (Dr. Linus Pauling)

Cancer – More Efficient
Get up earlier, write a stop doing list and work in 90 minute blocks with 10 minute intervals to recover and refuel. These are just three advices for Cancer, between 23rd and 27th January, when it is very important to become more productive and more efficient at work. And remember, when writing the stop doing list: only 20 per cent of what you do each day produces 80 per cent of your results. So, consider to get rid of the things that don’t matter during your workday, that have a minimal effect on your overall productivity. It will help you a lot! At the end of the week, having the New Moon in eighth house, for those born under the sign of Cancer it’s a good time to pay off debt or to get money that’s owed to them.
Quote of the week for Cancer: „Progress isn’t made by early risers. It’s made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something“ (Robert A. Heinlein)

Leo – Start New Relationships
New Moon in the seventh house is a favourable time to start new relationships or to re-define existing ones. Leos need to re-evaluate relationships, especially if they are some signs that they are in an unhealthy relationship. Lack of trust between partners and jealousy are the most common signs that, in a relationship, this isn’t the way things should be. If this is your case, discuss with your partner and search solutions together! Leo men and women are very original and creative, at the end of this week. That’s because they understand the most important thing about originality: you don’t have to do things with the specific point of being original, only because you think they make you different. In fact, you already are original and you will show it only by doing things just because you want to do them, just because you are passionate about them. Therefore, this will be a great week for Leos with creative jobs and not so a great one for those jobs where creativity isn’t required (like accountants of all the employees being asked to wear uniform).
Quote of the week for Leo: „The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed“ (Carl Jung)

Virgo – Major Projects
You need to find new ways to increase your efficiency at work. Prioritizing tasks according to time commitment and priority level is a good idea. So is asking for help and passing off tasks to increase productivity. It is also essential to minimize interruptions, keeping your door closed and even your smartphone closed, when you work on really major projects. Virgo is good with money, at the end of this week. And, like all people who are financially successful, people born under this sign do more than to reduce spending and to save money. Cancer men and women take the next step and invest money that they free up through smart spending decisions. And they remember about not keeping all eggs in one basket – diversify! A well-diversified investments portfolio limits the risks so that investments have the necessary time to create real gains.
Quote of the week for Virgo: „It does not take much strength to do things, but it requires a great deal of strength to decide what to do“ (Elbert Hubbard)

Libra – Keep the Romance Alive
Good news for those Libras who are looking for the right life partner. There are greater chances than usual to attract authentic love into their life. This is a good week to go on a romantic date or to declare your love. There is no need for complicated scenarios or lines from romantic movies: just be original and express your love! With Mars entering the seventh house, Libra men and women find ways to keep the romance alive, at the end of the week. Leo and his/her partner make time to focus on one another and to talk about the day’s events, heart to heart and face to face. They also try new adventures together, doing together something more daring and more unusual than in the rest of the time. They also should remember what Barton Goldsmith wrote in his book about happy couples: „bedtime might be the only opportunity you’re alone together all day“.

Scorpio – Spend More Time with Your Family
Those born under the sign of Scorpio have to find new ways to spend more time with their family. It is hard to say how much time families should spend together. That differs from family to family: a newly married couple doesn’t need anyone else around and needs more time than an elderly couple. Also, young children need much greater attention and guidance that a teenager, who will prefer friends to parents. But one rule is essential: be sure that you spend enough time to satisfy all family members. At the end of the week, Scorpio has to create some balance between work and social life. Sunday, you need to slow down your life and to rest for real. One thing you must remember: hours slept before twelve at night are proven to be more effective than those slept after.
Quote of the week for Scorpio: „Govern a family as you would cook a small fish – very gently“ (Chinese Proverb)

Sagittarius – Spend Time with Children
Sagittarius parents spend more quality time with their children, during this week. What is important is to let your child choose how he/she likes to spend time with you: playing online games with you, going to the theatre to see Dorothy and Toto, going out and playing some football, cricket, basketball or any other sport. Don’t decide yourself for him/her, at least this time! And this is valuable not only for Sagittarius parents – any person born under this sign will enjoy activities with children and the kids will love him/her! For Sagittarius, the end of this week is a favourable time for learning something new. „In times of change, learners inherit the earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists“ said the American moral and social philosopher Eric Hoffer. Indeed, starting to think that you know everything and that you don’t need to learn anymore represents the first step to failure. Don’t make this step and learn something new every day!
Quote of the week for Sagittarius: „Grown-ups never understand anything by themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them“ (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry)

Capricorn – Financial Goals
Setting realistic financial goals is a recommended activity for Capricorns, this week. You must evaluate your financial situation and your financial goals, for the next months or for the entire year. Just one more thing to remember: „a budget tells us what we can’t afford, but it doesn’t keep us from buying it“ (William Feather). With Mars entering at the end of the week in the fourth house, Capricorn spends more time than usual at home, with the loved ones. Mars was the god and is the planet of war, strength and impulsiveness. In the house of family, this strength will be used to support the family and to defend any relative who is facing some problems. Capricorn is also very active at home, repairing electronics and appliances, taking care of plants and trees or making scratches in wood furniture disappear.
Quote of the week for Capricorn: „Before you can really start setting financial goals, you need to determine where you stand financially“ (David Bach)

Aquarius – Reinvent Yourself
With the New Moon in the first house, you have to reinvent yourself and to try new things. Ask yourself how you want your future to look like and make a list of all the things you want to change in your life. Then, ask yourself how you will change these things. And, during this battle to becoming a better person, it is important to stay mentally strong, positive and motivated. Communication is the most powerful and the ultimate weapon for success, at the end of the week. With Mars entering the third house, there’s a lot that Aquarius has to say. If they are in loved, but so far they couldn’t express their feelings, this is the time to declare their love. If, on the contrary, they want to separate from somebody, they will speak openly, assuming the risk to hurt the other person. Suffering now is better than suffering over and over again, because they keep living in a lie.
Quote of the week for Aquarius: „Every day, you reinvent yourself. You’re always in motion. But you decide every day: forward or backward“ (James Altucher)

Pisces – Spirituality
Spirituality must play an important role in your life, during this week. Meditating, praying, chanting mantras or any other kind of spiritual practice may help you a lot. „In order to experience everyday spirituality, we need to remember that we are spiritual beings spending some time in a human body“ said Barbara de Angelis. This could be an inspirational quote for Pisces. Those born under the sign of Pisces have plenty of work to do, during this week. It is possible for them to get a second job, for different reasons: on the one hand, to explore a new career without leaving the old one, on the other hand, to start saving money for something important they want to do or to buy. And, indeed, in the second half of the week they are some good financial news for those born under this sign.
Quote of the week for Pisces: „Make your own Bible. Select and collect all the words and sentences that in all your readings have been to you like the blast of a trumpet“ (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
