Horoscopes Sunday 8th January 2017
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The connections you make and those you're already enjoying can add a warm and upbeat element to the weeks ahead. With the ongoing line-up between Jupiter in your sector of relating and Uranus in your sign, expect the unexpected in terms of the conversations you hold and the people you might encounter, as a receptive openness can bring fresh opportunities your way.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Recent weeks may have brought opportunities to clear out the emotional closet by being honest with yourself and willing to let go of situations and activities that may no longer chime with you. You might find your mood improves the less time you spend tackling tasks or maintaining relationships that aren't truly on your wavelength. Energy levels can be boosted as a result.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Mercury your guide planet forges ahead from today in your sector of relating, and yet you may find that certain relationships have improved since its retrograde phase began over three weeks ago. This can be because any awkward areas might have come to the forefront, and hopefully you have jointly taken more time to talk things through and listen, and improving understanding.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Although progress with a certain idea may be slow, it seems to be happening Cancer and today's influences suggest that if you persevere you could soon see bigger strides occurring. If it appears that you are going backwards at times then try not to let this faze you. The cosmos is encouraging you to keep going regardless, as confidence can build as your experience grows.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
You may feel keenly about aspects of your life and this could be down to a link between Mars in a more sensitive zone and Pluto in your lifestyle sector encouraging you to improve on your present situation. Someone who knows you may have a few suggestions. But you too could be aware of the need for specific changes, and committing can be the next step for you Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
With Mercury, your ruler, rewinding over recent weeks, you may have changed your mind about an idea more than once, especially if you've experienced delays or frustration concerning it. But as the planet of communication pushes forward from today you could find that things begin to come together, and that after a week or so you can have more confidence in it.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
With expansive Jupiter in your sign making you aware of various opportunities, the coming weeks and months may sparkle with promise. Some may need more work to bring them to fruition than others though Libra, and in one or two cases the tasks ahead of you may seem daunting at times. Even so, your horoscope reveals that these could be your biggest triumphs.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
A philosophical or spiritual approach to key issues could be the reason that you find it easier to handle certain issues in a more relaxed manner. And this focus on the subtle aspects of your chart encourages being more mindful and listening to your intuition as this can make a difference over coming months. Situations that seemed entrenched might become easier to resolve.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
The Taurus Moon and a potent tie to the Sun and Pluto can spotlight a lifestyle matter that you may have been hoping to improve for some time. The coming day or so can be a turning-point as something, perhaps a conversation or piece of information, might kick-start the process. Don't feel you have to be perfect right away. If there are a few false starts, just keep going.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
While the current blend of energies can encourage you to help out when possible, including friends or family who may need some support, there's a suggestion that while certain people may genuinely need assistance others might require a bit of attention and companionship. You can be there for both, but may need to draw a line if certain people become too demanding.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Lunar ties suggest enjoying some quiet time today can allow for you to reflect on any matters that may be at the forefront of your mind, and perhaps to come to some conclusions. Taking a more relaxed approach to such issues could allow for other perspectives to show up and these might swing things to the positive. Entertaining? A conversation could have healing power.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Key elements in your situation suggest you may not hold back from letting others know what you are thinking and feeling. Even so, with Venus in your sign encouraging a more sensitive approach, it may help to be cautious about what you say and to whom. While being truthful could immediately clear up a social situation, a friend may find it easier to handle if told gently.
