Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
Working behind the scenes will be rewarding starting on the 6th. Take this opportunity to launch an important and confidential project. Your imagination will run wild if you can escape the attention of critics and cynics. This is also a good time to work with big bureaucracies like hospitals, universities and government agencies. Paperwork will be processed very quickly, especially if you treat officials with courtesy and consideration. A Lunar Eclipse on the 10th marks the end of a tense domestic situation. You may decide to relocate to a more tranquil and scenic setting. It's also possible you'll cut ties with a contentious relative. A pay rise, promotion or more responsible role is yours for the asking on the 13th; and an important ambition will be satisfied. The New Moon on the 24th warns against getting pulled into a group project filled with intransigent individuals. It will be better for you to go solo at the end of January.
Sunday 19th of January 2020
You're in a position of professional and political power. People are asking for help with advancement. A reference from you is worth its weight in gold. Be discerning when making recommendations. Promote only the people who are a good fit for the positions they seek. Offering trustworthy referrals will pave the way for a new opportunity. Getting paid to share your opinions about art, music or movies will be the answer to a prayer. Use this extra income to open a savings or retirement account.
Week beginning Monday 13th of January 2020
Your romantic partner or best friend will not mean to upset you. Comments they make might seem inconsiderate but they've just not thought about the impact of their words. Their remarks will make you despondent at first but if you take time to talk it over, you will overcome any negative feelings. A senior colleague's advice is not meant to be taken literally. Although you respect their opinion, you might see alternative options. You need to appreciate the value of being versatile.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and this is exactly where you need to be in your life, up front and first!
You are ruled by Mars, the fiery red planet, named after the Roman God of war and fertility. You are a natural warrior and champion. You're not inclined to back away from a challenge, nor will you back down in an argument when you know you're right. You're often at your best when there is a competition to win, a cause to champion, or a friend to defend. To you, a friend in need, is truly a friend indeed! You'll go out of your way to help others or to promote a good cause.
The symbol for Aries is the Ram and the body part associated with Aries is the head. A ram will head-butt others out of its way and will lock horns with other rams when the need arises.
Being the first of the signs, you're considered to be the youngster of the zodiac. Like a baby, you're an innocent and you can at times be quite naieve or overly trusting. Like an infant, you can also be quite loud or vocal when your needs are not being met! If you're upset or angry, you usually don't mind who knows about it.
We all judge others by our own yardstick. Your way is to be honest, direct and straight to the point. Because you do not have a deceptive or dishonest bone in your entire body, you can be blind to those faults in others. With you, what you see is what you get. Most people find this energising and refreshing!
You were born in the spring when the leaves return to the trees and new life abounds all around. In tune with your birth energy, new growth and new things excite you. You will often be the first to see the new film, to read the new book, or to embrace a new experience or a new way of doing things. Your natural enthusiasm for the new can be a true inspiration for other people.
You get along best of all with the other fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, also with the air signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, as they provide the oxygen that your fire needs to burn brightly.
The water signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, can sometimes dampen down your fiery nature, or worse, extinguish your flames altogether. Likewise, you may find it more difficult to shine brightly, or at all, when smothered by the earthiness of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
There are 12 types of Aries, because your ruling planet, Mars, visits all 12 signs of the zodiac on its travels. The sign where Mars is placed in your individual horoscope is important, as this will add characteristics to your fiery Aries spirit.
An Aries Sun who is born with Mercury, Venus and Mars in the adjacent, placid and cautious, down to earth sign of Taurus, may not recognise himself from this description. If you don't know where Mars was transiting when you were born, one of our astrologers will be pleased to tell you more.
