Lunar Notes: January 2023

Aries: You concentrate on networking and positioning yourself, with an eye to the future. Who do you want to be and where do you want to go? Jupiter in your sign until May brings good fortune and puts you in the right place at the right time. Take advantage of this time. Be wary of becoming overconfident and promising more than you can deliver.

Taurus: You contemplate a career move and change in direction. Wait until mid-month before making any big changes. During the New Moon on the 21st, certain developments emerge that have a bearing on your future plans. Assess these changes before making any decisions. Money is important but you are searching for satisfaction.

Gemini: You will be shifting gears when Mars goes direct on the 12th and Mercury, your ruler, on the 18th. Certain issues become clear and you are energized as you begin to plan your next steps. You factor in budget issues before making changes. You adjust your thinking and actions to suit the situation you find yourself in. Your asset is your adaptability.

Cancer: As the New Year begins, you scrutinize some of your relationships. Do these folks have the same values as you? While you are analyzing all of this, some new and exciting people enter your life. They are different and fun but may not be stable or long-term. Only you can decide who is in your life and who is not.

Leo: You keep a healthy balance between work and play. The folks in your life are a mixed bag of colleagues, friends, and family.

There may be some legal issues or upsets in the cash flow. These issues don’t slow you down as you continue on your way.

Scorpio: As the month begins, you’re busy with appointments, conversations, and generally running around town.

Sagittarius: You think about the things and people you value and how to get more of those in your life.
