Horoscopes Tuesday 3rd January 2017
Aries 21 March - 20 April
In order to make this coming year stand out from last year, it might be necessary to finish completely with situations that are fading from your life. Moreover, you may have been aware of this for some time, but only now feel really ready to take action. Sometimes just letting go can be enough. If a friendship is involved though, a heartfelt conversation might be the better option.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
As Venus your personal planet, sashays into your sector of friends and community, you may find yourself drawn into groups and becoming more actively involved. But before you do, consider what you want for yourself. With other factors revealing this can be a time of change for you, it may be wise to leave spaces in your schedule for new opportunities and plans to take shape.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Leaping into action may not be as effective as a thoughtful pause. The ongoing focus hints that various ideas can be contributing to a picture that could show plenty of potential. It may be a case of separating the various strands so that a clearer image of what you would like to accomplish can emerge. A former colleague or old friend could have good words of advice too, Gemini.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
There can be a very intuitive and somewhat mystical focus which may entice you to take a closer look at key beliefs. If you have tried to make progress in one area and found the same dilemmas cropping up, then it could be that an old pattern has been holding you back. Someone you trust may be able to help you become aware of any blind spots that might be a factor here.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Sometimes the best way to deal with powerful emotions can be to channel them into exercise, whether of a gentler kind such as yoga, or something more vigorous such as aerobics. The act of moving your body might allow certain more intense feelings to gradually dissipate. Talking things through can also be a way to release tension - if a relationship has been a cause of angst.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
The ability to compromise in relationships can be enhanced as Venus moves on, with her presence helping to smooth over any difficulties. There may be a tendency for someone close to dominate a situation by using a degree of manipulation and this might be something to watch out for. They may not do so consciously though, which is why a careful approach could be necessary.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Rather than glossing over an issue and hoping that it might resolve itself, the present picture suggests that it can help to bring it out into the open and encourage those involved to talk. This might be easier said than done, especially if it is a particularly sensitive issue. Even so, it may be the only way that things can begin to move forward, even if uncomfortably so at first.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
With the Moon linking to Neptune then Mars, a decision regarding a creative project could be dampened down by conflicting feelings, meaning that less is achieved. If it seems to be coming to a standstill, then focusing on something else for a day or so might be an answer. Your horoscope suggests that as you take yourself out of the equation, fresh ideas or information will come to light.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
A bright blend of energies continues to add vitality to your social life, which can see you venturing out to lively New Year's meet-ups. During this time a certain friendship might develop further and can prove a source of inspiration for you. Family interactions can be another matter altogether and it could be just as well to tread with care here Archer as loyalties can be tested.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Mercury's connection with Venus can be an opportunity to review an agreement, especially if you have had second thoughts about it. This is not to say that there is a problem with it, but that you might feel easier for checking things over. Still, with other factors showing that could muddy the waters, it may be just as well to look at the finer details just in case something is amiss.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
You may be wondering why a certain matter seems to evoke such emotion in you, but it can be because it brings out some of your noblest values. If you see an injustice that you can help remedy then you may be moved to do so, even if it means making a bit of a sacrifice. Be sure it is what it seems though, especially if you're considering donating time or money to this cause.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
As Venus, the lovely planet of relating glides into Pisces today, it can coincide with a time when you could be more accepting of yourself. This won't stop you from wanting to make a few finer improvements though, and if some new clothes or a new hair style can leave you ready to take on the New Year in style, and give extra confidence, then go for it Pisces. Expect more attention too.
