january 2013 Horoscope: Predictions for Aries
Ready, set….go! With the Sun spending the first three weeks of the new year in Capricorn, your tenth house of ambition, your New Year begins with a confetti-filled bang. While your friends are lazing about on January 1, mimosas in hand as they relive antics from the last night of 2012, your brain is already on overdrive. No foggy headed resolutions for you—you gave your list a final proofread days before that ball dropped. You begin 2013 goal-oriented and with your eyes on the prize. So which mountain will you be scaling this year? Whether your personal Kilimanjaro is rising the ranks at your current company or aligning your worklife with your soul’s deepest desires, you’re primed to reach the highest peaks.
On January 11, the Capricorn new moon helps gel your long-term goals—or clarifies them if you’re not as early to the go-getter party as your fellow Rams. If you’ve been skirting the edges of commitment, now is the time to dive in all the way. Perhaps you’ve been gunning for success in your head, but not 100 percent in your actions. Now is the time to further refine your resolutions and set for a road map for making them a reality. With transformative Pluto, communicative Mercury and magnetic Venus in Capricorn, too, this new moon is a divine invitation to align your earthly goals with your soul.
With the heavy practical emphasis of the first three weeks of January, a little soulful nudge wouldn’t hurt you. On January 19, the Sun enters Aquarius, electrifying your eleventh house of group activity and networking and reviving the spirit of fun. For the next four weeks, your social calendar is abuzz, with fruitful happy hours and other promising invitations to connect with like-minded souls. Now that your professional objectives are set, all this moving-and-shaking has a clear agenda: to meet-and-greet with people whose own objectives may dovetail perfectly with your own. You now have the chance to assemble a star team (or just to mingle in a crowd that suits your currents trajectory/state-of-being), easing up the burden of duty and reminding you that even work can be fun.
Speaking of fun, on January 26, a full moon in boisterous Leo lights up your fifth house of passion, creativity and fertility. The reasons to swoon are many—new love, a passion project or overall joie de vivre. Since full moons bring illumination, you may see the culmination of a situation or project that’s been in development, such as baby news or the opportunity to wear your heart on your sleeve and finally tell the object of your affection just how you feel.
