Today is Blue Monday — the year’s most depressing day. The post-festive slump is the moment, in the Northern Hemisphere, when we’re most likely to feel down in the dumps. Yet, astrologically there are reasons to be hopeful. With Venus moving from a relationship with Uranus to link with Jupiter, if we want to feel better about our lives, it’s time for bold, optimistic action. Even if things aren’t perfect, faith can be restored.

Imagine you are standing in an Aladdin’s cave of treasure. Untold wealth lies before you . . . yet you’re curiously unaffected by the opulence. Sometimes, in real life, even when our desires are being fulfilled, we’re left feeling dissatisfaction. It’s as though ‘something’ lies just beyond our grasp. If this feels familiar, don’t berate yourself for being ungrateful; accept it’s because you’re hungry to discover what’s going to happen next. A sense of anticipation is positive. The wheels of your next project are in motion. There’s good reason to be optimistic! Things can work out well in 2023. Call your year-ahead forecast: 0906 751 5604.

Someone’s trying to find the courage to tell you something. Even though there’s little chance what’s so important to them will have a major impact on your world, you sense their nervousness. On an unconscious level, it’s unsettling. So let them express their fears. If you can subtly and sensitively encourage them to voice their concerns, they’ll find the courage to speak.

You might not be able to fly — at least, not without the mechanical assistance of engines (or a pilot). But you do possess skills that others consider similarly specialised. They don’t know what you know. And they can’t imagine how you do what you do. With your unique set of experiences, you’re capable of achieving things others consider to be impossible. But, because they’re second nature to you, it’s easy to underestimate your abilities. Don’t doubt yourself. Great things are possible today. For news to help you make 2023 the year that your dreams come true, call your year-ahead forecast: 0906 751 5608.

Some folk are never satisfied. If trapped in a well and winched to safety, they’d complain about the discomfort of the harness. If the cavalry came to their rescue, they’d worry about the mess the horses had left behind. And if they’d been in a tunnel for a long time, the light at the end of it would give them a headache. If you’re in a problematic situation today, there’s a solution. Just because it doesn’t fit with your ideal doesn’t mean it won’t lead to a positive outcome.

THERE are times when less really is more. And right now, although you feel as though you need to add something to your life, actually, you just need to take something away. A process of subtraction will enable you to simplify an issue that has become needlessly complicated.

In your personal hive, are you the queen bee or one of the workers? Although it might sound better to be the queen — cosily cossetted and waited on hand-and-wing, without the workers, where would she be? No honey, no nothing. You might not feel you have much to add to a situation today. But, just like the workers, your role is integral. Speak and people listen. They trust you know what you’re talking about. Use your knowledge to make a real difference. The end product will be sweet! This year will be much better than you think! For news about what you’ve got to look forward to, call 0906 751 5611.

As children, we learn to expect certain developments and see familiar situations as normal. But they might not be so at all. In fact, they may be extremely strange. But if they’re all that we know, they become normal to us, then we feel abnormal if they’re no longer part of our lives. As adults, we become accustomed to negative aspects in our worlds. We recalibrate our expectations to cope. You’re being liberated from a difficulty in your life. Yes . . . it brings inevitable change. But that’s a reason to celebrate, isn’t it? Start 2023 with optimism and hope. Don’t miss your year-ahead forecast. For inspiring news, call 0906 751 5612.
