December 23 - January 20
Today's Horoscope for Monday January 22nd
You do not always get on well at the moment in team situations or under authority figures. You find it tricky to be calm and controlled. You can simmer with resentment and then overstate your case. Try to assert yourself in a steady way. Luckily, later you will be charming everyone in sight. Able to communicate happily and harmoniously with almost everyone at a social level, you will be even more popular than usual and welcome wherever you go.
The Weekly Outlook from 22nd January
You are being drawn more than usual to the good life, and all it brings with it, which never comes cheap. But you won't be happy unless you can boost your nest egg as well. Maybe later in the week you will feel uneasy, not able to muster up confidence or competitive drive to get your own way for the time being. But it is only temporary. Do a little strategic planning ahead to the time when you can act with greater speed.
Your Monthly Horoscope for January
Your birthday Sun at this time of year usually gives you a lift but you'll be more serious now. You'll be reorganising your life and your wardrobe wanting to revision your image to suit your new sophisticated approach. Try not to be too defensive when meeting people. You will warm up later but it could be off-putting. Luckily enthusiastic and dynamic friends will be around to give you a nudge and keep you looking ahead. Your optimism will be high since you'll sense better times are coming. You'll be in your element in group activities at work and in your leisure hours, with everyone pulling together.

and Next Month's Horoscope for February
As an ambitious, practical and traditional sign, having your finances in order and enough money to keep up appearances is always important to you. Especially now you'll be taking the initiative to improve your situation. There is a slight risk of you spending to impress but your main motivation will be to give yourself a comfortable lifestyle and security in the time ahead. Your optimism will be high with enthusiastic friends lending a hand with encouragement and sensible advice. Thoughtful gestures from everyday mates will make you feel appreciated. It may not be grand passion but it'll warm your heart all the same. Your charming way with words will keep them happy in return. Behind the scenes you may be frustrated at slow progress in one pet project. Be patient. All will come right next month. Keep pulling strings discreetly and wait for the tide to turn. Staying on top of detail and communicating clearly especially around the 17th will avoid mishaps. Thereafter you'll be speeding ahead in good style.
Year Ahead 2018
Your optimism will keep you sailing along in good spirits through 2018. Friends, new and old, will be around to boost your morale and keep your focus on what's coming next. Not all of their advice may be realistic though it'll always be cheering to hear. Just check out in advance before making decisions for yourself. Keep networking since the universe is behind you.rnBut for all that you will be more serious at times with Saturn now in your own sign making it clear you have to keep your feet on the ground. Part of its influence will be to prompt you to clear old baggage of any variety that you no longer need, out of your life. Whether in possessions, attitudes of mind or even people you no longer have common interests with. Think of a plant being pruned back, which stimulates new growth in time. Then apply that to your life. Just don't be too standoffish or give in to self-doubt which could happen in odd moments.rnYou'll be busily sorting out your personal finances in the first few months, taking the initiative and ensuring that your long term security comes before indulgences. Then after July you'll be keen to reorganise joint finances, where you share responsibilities with others. The Leo Eclipse will nudge you into changing the way you handle co-operative agreements, financial and emotional. Be open to the idea that maybe your old approach is outworn, so trying new terms of engagement would work better.rnClose relationships will be going through a period of adjustment also from July for a few months as you seek to reach new understandings both internally as you ask yourself what you really want, and with partners. You will feel unsettled at home, wanting to say on the move, perhaps anticipating another relocation soon. All of which makes it tricky to put down roots. But you will be aiming ultimately for more freedom.rnLate in the year you'll sigh with relief at getting more time to yourself.
