Many of us have just come off a very challenging year. I can only speak for me to say that I am doing affirmations every day to help me continue to shift my thinking and really go to the positive and possibilities and not allow my ego to bring me down or limit me.

I feel that I have made it through the last few years and now I can finally spread my wings and fly. I am not exactly sure how my passion and work will unfold as I am looking for permanent work now. I do know that I will like to take my knowledge and experience for the last three/four years and bring them to the table to continue to be an agent of change and make a difference.

I wanted to share from one woman, Sarah-Jane Grace, and her Yearly Astro-Forecast for 2015 followed by her January Forecast, 2015 (2 messages – see below)

One thing I know is that this is an “8” year which translates into abundance and also inifinity. We have the choice and free will to bring in all the abundance we deserve, or not. It is still a choice. I choose to bring in the abundance in all areas of my life. Please take a look below. It is a guide and of course things can change depending on your will and choices.

This weekened make a decision how you want to think, respond to things, and live. I spent time writing my intentions for this year. If you have not I suggest you do.

I want to wish you a wonderful weekend.

Yearly Astro-Forecast For 2015
A message from Sarah-Jane Grace
Thursday, 1 January, 2015 (posted 5 January, 2015)

Message for 2015

The shift from one year to the next is something we should be used to, after all, it has happened every single year each of us has been alive, and for many, many years prior to that. And yet, there is a sense that few of us have ever really paused in the brief moment in-between the end of one year and the beginning of the next in order to sense the bigger picture both within, and around, us. Few ever notice the brief pause or the silence; it is as though life itself takes a moment to breathe out before breathing in and carrying on for another year.

It seems important for each of us to acknowledge more of the silent moments and the pauses over the coming year as the more aware we are of them the bigger they will grow in our lives. Whilst in real-time they will remain brief flickers, in our consciousness, they look set to expand, enabling us to connect even more deeply to both ourselves and the universal whole. It’s easy not to notice the stillness and those little bits of life that exist in-between the things we do: the moment before light becomes dark (and vice versa), the moment before a thought turns into a conscious idea or the moment between breaths. Yet, not to notice is to miss out on those little bits of life that have the power to remind us just how precious, amazing and incredible life truly is!

2015 looks set to be a year for profound inter-connection as each of us opens up our hearts and souls towards living more consciously in each and every moment, even in those moments never before considered ‘moments’. This may sound a little confusing to some, but let go of the mind chatter and instead feel the words and let the energy of becoming more conscious lead the way. In other words, don’t think it, become it.

Life and it’s unpredictable twists and turns can be a maelstrom of confusion at times, yet the more we are able to appreciate the silent moments and the spaces in-between the spaces, we feel less like pawns in a game of life but more like awakened souls riding the waves of life. Of course, we can never know what’s around the next corner and we can never know exactly what lies ahead, yet the more conscious we become of now, the more alive and interconnected we begin to feel as we realise that this moment is all we ever truly have. This is not to say we should let go of dreams or aspirations for the future, but we should acknowledge that the future is not now.

It’s easy to get lost in linear time as it constantly reminds us of where we are, where we were and where we want to be, but such a focus instils a sense of lack within us as it shows us the difference between here and there rather than showing us the richness that’s here already. This isn’t to say that life is perfect now, just that it is the life we truly have; the future hasn’t happened yet and however hard we try, we cannot make for a better past as it is in the past. By appreciating the magic of this moment more and embracing the moments of stillness, we look set to find a brand new way of living and being. As a result, every sunset expands, the sunrise enriches, a birdsong nourishes, and the breath allows us to feel truly integrated and connected. I wish you a bright, blessed and joyful 2015.

With love,

Sarah-Jane

Aries

2015 looks set to be a year of inner revolution and profound change as you make some major shifts in the way you live your life. Whilst a great deal of this change is likely to be internal (your thoughts, beliefs and philosophy in life), there is a sense that you will begin to walk a new pathway that feels both inspirational and empowering as you embrace a brand new way of living and being. Of course, in many ways, you have always done this, as you are forever changing and evolving, yet this coming year feels different as the over-arching energy is one of running towards something new rather than running away from something old. The difference may be subtle, and the outcome may be the same, but the dynamic is extremely important as it shows a change in your demeanour and reveals your true tenacity, self-belief and courage.

As a result, your year ahead of inner revolution looks set to be one of re-definition and re-birth as you re-shape your world. This could be a spiritual re-birth where you open up to some new ideas and beliefs, but more likely is a multi-levelled re-birth which reaches deeply into every aspect of your life. Although change is not always easy, there is a sense that you are more than ready to ring the changes. Just remember to keep your feet firmly on the ground as you establish that new terra firma beneath you; you may be ready to fly, but take your time and make the most of this powerful and amazing opportunity to re-write your life from the inside, out…

Taurus

Looking back over the year now behind you, there is a sense that you have achieved much, travelled to new depths/heights within and discovered a great deal about your true self. Yet, when you add up your achievements, you can’t quite equate this feeling with your reality as, in many ways, you feel as though you spent most of 2014 running on the spot. Of course, running on the spot means you haven’t gone backwards, but it also doesn’t suggest a great deal of forward movement either. However, despite what you see with your own eyes, you can’t help but feel a sense of achievement. Whilst the illogical logic of this niggles at you, it seems important that you stop trying to measure your life on how much you do or achieve and instead realise that a good life is based on a life well lived, one where you feel alive, inspired and awake.

You know only too well that life can become a treadmill of things to do, people to see and places to go if you let it, and you also know that the sparkle of your true essence can get lost under ‘stuff’ and responsibility if you lose your focus and sense of self by trying to be everything to everyone. 2015 looks set to be a year for consciously connecting to loving the life you live and to living the life you love. These do not have to be mutually exclusive as you can have your cake and eat it; after all, you are the chef, so you decide…

Gemini

2015 looks set to be an inspirational year of breakthrough and release as you finally step from where you were to where you want to be. There is a sense of liberation of your mind, body and soul as you shed the skin of old beliefs and embrace a new way of living and being you. This inspiration feels infectious and, the more you embrace the spirit of adventure, the more likely you are to dance and shine. You’ve always had a spark in your feet and a twinkle in your toes it’s just that you’ve often got lost trying to work out why your feet want to dance rather than simply letting them tap, stomp and swirl with the natural flow of life. In a way, your mind has been both your biggest asset and your biggest obstacle, as you so often over-think and over-analyse.

It would be easy to berate your mind for getting in the way of you being you, yet your mind is a part of you so it has been important to incorporate your swirling, busy head into the bigger picture of your life as trying to ‘fix it’ has only led to a feeling of inner disconnect. You are ready now to be at one with your mind exactly as it is, to find peace in the rush and swirl of thoughts and to know that your vibrant thoughts are a part of you. At the same time, the more you love yourself for all that you already are, the more you will realise that you have always danced, it’s just that you are now able to consciously enjoy the process…

Cancer

There have been many moments of your life where you have taken a sharp inhalation of breath as you squeezed yourself through a tricky patch or difficult chapter. The inhalation is more energetic than literal; as though you somehow made yourself a bit smaller in order to make it through the tough times. Such a strategy clearly works as you are here to tell the tale, but there is a sense that, on some level, although you got through to the ‘other side’, you forgot to take a big deep breath and reclaim the space that is rightfully yours. In essence, you retracted yourself to pass through life with less resistance but never got around to expanding back again. This is, of course, understandable, after all why would you want to risk facing more resistance? Yet, it seems more likely that your on-going breath-hold is a result of habit more than anything else; you just got used to being ‘smaller’ and it became second nature to you.

However, intuitively you have grown increasingly aware of the desire to breathe more deeply once again and although you have resisted for a while (as it made for a quieter and more straightforward life) you now seem ready to consciously focus on your breath and on allowing your lungs and your energetic self to expand and grow. 2015 looks set to be a year for being you and for breathing freely as you open up your heart and soul towards new heights and goals. Reclaiming your breath looks set to catapult you into a new chapter of balance and inner equilibrium…

Leo

‘Moments of being’ looks set to be your mantra in 2015. ‘Moments of being what?’ you may ask, but there is no what and there should be no questions! ‘Moments of being’ is as it should be: pure, unadulterated, fluid, nebulous and completely open to interpretation. Although you may want further clarity, direction and instruction, life rarely obliges in such a way! Yet, feel the essence of the words and you can begin to capture the idea. Your year ahead looks set to be one of living consciously and vibrantly in each and every moment, to stop gazing quite so intently on what may or may not lie ahead and to let go of whimsically looking back on your past; the grass may look greener all around you but when you take the time to actually notice where you are now you will begin to realise that constantly looking forward and back simply diminishes the moment you are standing in.

Being in the here and now, breathing in the fullness of your being and giving yourself the room to be aware of even just of few of those trillions of moments of being will inspire you to become more tender and more compassionate with yourself, to love yourself and to be yourself. Sometimes, it’s easier to accept the idea that life doesn’t come with an instruction manual, sometimes you just have to trust, let go and be you. Of course, with you being you, you want more than this, but the fight to get it can diminish and deplete you, leaving you out of balance and disconnected, so it seems the time has come to stop fighting and start being…

Virgo

2015 looks set to be a year of illumination and radiance for you as your inner light takes on a new strength and vigour. Although you have always been a determined soul, there is a sense that you have lost sight of your tenacity and passion over time as life has thrown you its fair share of challenges. As a result, the light in your eyes has dimmed slightly reflecting a kind of inner retreat and disconnection. Yet, however disconnected you may feel, your inner sun is still at the centre of your soul, so even though the clouds may have obscured the view, the light is no less bright or radiant than it was before. Such a realisation is logical but it can be hard to feel reassured when you can’t actually see it!

It’s important to remember that although you are an earthy soul, the fiery heat of the sun illuminates your world, and the more you can embrace the light, the more you will start to feel awake and alive once again. Just as the sun in the sky remains vibrant and strong, the light and power of your inner sun doesn’t ebb and flow; it remains constant. You seem ready now to turn towards the light within you in order to reconnect to your passion, creativity and spark. You also seem ready to trust that clouds come and go, and they are not a reflection of your skills or talents. Although you cannot control the cloud cover, if you remain focused on the constant companionship of your inner light, you will realise that the idea of disconnection no longer forms a part of your world…

Libra

Questions, questions, life is always so jam-packed and full of questions. What? Why? When? Where? How? Your mind is constantly digging, probing and analysing trying to work out why things are the way they are. There are times when you feel tied up in knots as the questions get tangled and you lose sight of yourself in the process as each question builds up like layers of sedimentary rock; in the end, the pressure at the bottom becomes too intense and the pile comes tumbling down. There are also times when the question asking becomes more of a distraction than a necessity; the intensity of inner question asking takes you away from the daily humdrum and busy-ness of life.

Yet, distraction doesn’t truly fix anything as the ‘stuff’ just hovers and builds until you actually do something about it. Of course, you already know this, but you have become such a master at questions, you frequently lose sight of logic. It’s important to remember that the quality of the answers you seek are often a reflection on the quality of the questions you ask rather than the quantity. At the same time, it’s important to accept that sometimes, there are no answers, and, no matter how hard you ask, the answer cannot and will not appear; it’s not hidden, it simply doesn’t exist. 2015 looks set to be a revelatory year for you as you stop pushing so hard for the answers and instead start going with the flow more. You seem ready now to stop hiding behind question-asking in order to step consciously into the true wonder of life…

Scorpio

2015 looks set to be a year of inner balance for you as you step from one path to another when it comes to embracing your true essence and honouring yourself. You have always known the truth of what it is to be you, but life hasn’t always facilitated a way for you to be you; distractions, obligations and duties have often turned into obstacles preventing you from living the life you intuitively sense you were born to live. Of course, in hindsight, you now realise that these only became distractions because you allowed them to be, for in truth, there is actually very little that can get in the way of you being you. You are a phenomenal force of nature and you have a potent energetic presence.

As a result, life usually only holds you up or sends you on a detour because you actually want a change of direction. Although this could be at soul-level and you may not be aware of the bigger picture of your life, it seems clear that you are far less of a pawn in the game of life than you often believe. Admittedly, you are not able to control the flow as life rarely works that way, but you are far less pliable than you often believe. Your year ahead looks set to be a time for you to consciously step back into the flow of life, feeling empowered and enlivened, inspired and energised as you realise that you are already living the life you were born to live: always have been, always will be. Can it be any other way?

Sagittarius

As a vibrant, passionate, sensitive, warm-hearted and compassionate soul, you are the kind of person that everyone wants as a friend. You inspire those around you with your optimism, and, even in the face of challenge, you seek out the positives and extract the lessons learned. Yet, despite you being the epitome of a great person, there is one person that so frequently forgets your qualities: you. More often than not you berate yourself for not being good enough, busy enough, successful enough or simply just enough. You push yourself hard and expect nothing short of perfection. Whilst this does lead to achievements, there is a sense that you often feel disconnected from them because you have driven yourself into the ground to get there.

2015 is your year to finally change the dynamic and flow in your life; it is your year to start being the friend to yourself that you are to everyone else. You need to love yourself, be sensitive to your needs, be compassionate to yourself and to be your own best friend. This isn’t to say that you are about to turn into ‘Billy-no-mates’, far from it, but until you are a true friend to yourself, you will never appreciate just how special a soul you really are. Self-flagellation and harsh inner language need to be eradicated from your inner dialogue as you start to cultivate an attitude of gentleness, compassion and tenderness for yourself. Don’t beat yourself up and know that, by being the friend to yourself that you are to others, you will finally find the balance and joy in your life you have been searching for…

Capricorn

2015 looks set to be a year of establishing a true sense of balance in your life as you become more conscious of where you are now and less focused on where you’ve been and where you hope to be heading. It’s easy to use the past and the future as reference points for the present as they allow you to see the progress you have made but there is a risk that your focus can become so honed on what’s behind you and what might be ahead of you that you lose sight of where you are now. At the same time, there’s a chance that such a focus can leave you feeling a sense of lack and, as you are not quite where you think you should be, you still have to push on to find that little piece of happiness with your name on it. Newsflash! You already have the piece of happiness; it’s just that you’ve been too distracted to notice it waving at you from the shores of the deep pool of your soul.

When you pause for a short while, take some deep breaths and connect to your inner self, your sense of balance quickly returns enabling you to see your life more clearly. Over your year ahead it seems important that you become far more conscious of the present moment and allow each moment to fill you completely. At the same time, stop pushing and chasing so hard to get to the ever-expanding horizon: be gentle with yourself. Notice where you are now, be in the moment and let it nourish you right to the depths of your being…

Aquarius

As the kaleidoscope of your life continues to swirl and fizz like fireworks on Bonfire Night, and your connection to spiralling galaxies and dancing comets in the night sky light up your soul with inspirational thoughts, you grow ever-more conscious of your evolving nature. There is a sense that your understanding of life is changing as you open up your heart and soul to embrace a new way of living and being. You have always known just how fluid life is but, as a thinker, it can be hard for you to let go of the need to make sense of life. As a result, there are times when your mind stops you from consciously connecting with the fizz and bang of being you.

2015 looks set to be a year of letting go of the need to push quite so hard to make sense of why things are the way they are before you accept them and move on; instead you seem ready to trust the flow a little more allowing your powerful intuition to lead the way. Allowing your more fluid, creative and innovative side to flourish looks set to see you walking a very different path as the year progresses. This could be adopting a new approach to life or it could be adopting a new life; only time will tell. The reason for this uncertainty is because nothing is set in stone and, as you continue to evolve and expand, your true goals, dreams and needs will change. So, take each moment as it comes, dance with the stars and feel your entire being radiating with the glow of life…

Pisces

2015 looks set to be a year for stepping beyond the boundaries of your life and exploring some new terrain when it comes to living the best life possible. You have been a little life-weary recently as the pressures of being everything to everyone has started to take its toll on your effervescence and enthusiasm. There hasn’t been much time for you as those precious ‘you time’ moments have slowly been squeezed out of your life. Yet, you are a strong, vivacious and vibrant soul; you are no doormat, so you haven’t been the victim of some random ‘life squeezing’ event! Perhaps you have continually taken on so much as a way to distract yourself from thinking about stepping beyond the imagined boundaries of your life? Although you want to expand and step joyfully into the wilderness of life, it also feels a little alien and unfamiliar at the same time. It’s understandable to feel this way, after all, the wilderness is unknowable and wild, but it’s also something your soul longs for.

Trying to be everything to everyone is your way of becoming so indispensible that you can avoid ever truly having to be the free spirit you know yourself to be, yet why? Embracing change, exploring new terrain and allowing your true essence the room to dance freely is not for the faint hearted but you are not faint of heart! It seems important now for you to listen to your inner voice, to honour your true needs and to allow yourself the freedom to be you. Trust your instincts, see beyond those boundaries and know that this is your opportunity to shine brightly…

Monthly Astro-Forecasts January 2015

A message from Sarah-Jane Grace
(posted 9 January, 2015)

Message for January 2015

As we step from one year into the next, there is a sense that January will be a month for quiet reflection and contemplation as we prepare for the journey ahead. Of course, we each have our own journey in life, one that is unique and distinctive, yet we also collectively walk together at the same time, and it seems that both of these are growing stronger and more vibrant with each passing day as though the threads are beginning to entwine more tightly and more concisely than ever before. In many ways this is a sign that individually we are letting go of fear, anxiety and the sense that we haven’t, as yet, reached that elusive destination where we feel whole and complete to instead realise that we already are whole and complete exactly as we are. As a result, the disconnection that often appears when we live at a tangent to our own truth is fading as we open up to wholeheartedly feeling, living and being all that we know ourselves to be.

Feeling connected allows us to tap into the collective consciousness and awaken to the true flow of life. In a way, this is a ‘chicken and egg’ scenario as it’s hard to say which comes first: personal or collective evolution. There is a sense that the more we allow ourselves to be free, the more we can connect to the collective and this will, in turn, inspire us to connect ever more deeply to ourselves. A deeper inner connection will drive forward a collective spiritual revolution as each of us consciously come together in energetic harmony. Such a path feels inevitable now as the journey each of us has made up to this point has reached a kind of ‘wisdom crescendo’ where we feel able to ‘let go’ into the freefall of life and ride the waves with trust, faith and a deeper sense of knowing. Whilst this doesn’t fix or change the reality we live in, it does enable us to live more vibrantly as a result.

Faith is an important part of this journey; not so much the details as we all have our own, unique beliefs, but the bigger picture: an openness to the divine, a willingness to love and a true compassion that not only reaches out to others but reaches deeply within as well. The ‘wisdom crescendo’ is akin to reaching a mountain summit as it brings a sense of exhilaration and achievement, yet as one gazes out across the clouds and sees other mountains to climb, we quickly realise that we have not reached the end of our journey, but the beginning of the next.

Letting go involves faith and courage as it shows a willingness to trust the flow of life to carry us forth. Yet, it is not giving up; it is waking up and being fully present in each and every moment. It is a willingness to turn to face life exactly as it is and to choose to live anyway. The ‘wisdom crescendo’ is but a wave of many that lap the shores of the soul, some waves crash in on the rocks with force and power, others gently tickle the rocks. Yet, this wave feels significant as it seems so distinct from the others. As a result, January looks set to be a time for reflection but a time for inner unification as well as we open up to taking a big, deep breath of life and choose to do so again, and again…

With love,

Sarah-Jane

Aries

January looks set to mark the beginning of a new chapter in your life, not so much a ‘new year’s resolution’, but more of a ‘new year’s revolution’ as you begin to re-shape and re-define your approach to life. There is an air of dynamism building momentum from deep within you as you connect to a new wave of drive and determination, and this looks set to inspire you to think creatively when it comes to living the life you love and loving the life you live. On first thought, these two may sound the same but it’s not always the case that one automatically appears with the other as life rarely works out that way. Therefore ensuring you love the life you live and opening up to living the life you love allows you to approach your ultimate goal from two different directions.

Of course, the biggest challenge comes in knowing what your ultimate goal actually is! Whilst you may be a driven, enthusiastic and determined soul, there is a sense that you often run before you can walk and this can result in you running in different directions at the same time, seemingly towards a goal, but often involving lots of cul-de-sacs on the way as you test the water as you go rather than fully pondering the matter and making more informed choices. A lot can be said for spontaneity but combining it with your wisdom, courage and creativity will allow you to revolutionise your life from the inside, out…

Taurus

Breathing space looks set to take centre stage in your life throughout January as you begin to take stock of the life you’re living, the life you’ve lived and the life you still hope to live. It’s easy to get caught up on the giant hamster wheel of life, keeping on keeping on, getting through each day as best as you can. Life isn’t always easy so such a strategy is understandable; however, there is a sense that by keeping your head down you are also losing sight of the bigger picture and the realisation that there is so much more to being you! Life isn’t solely about things to do, places to go, people to see and achievements to make, there is also a need to be fully conscious in order to be a part of the ride!

You are not just a cog in the universal machine; you are an awakened and evolved cog as well! Therefore, being conscious and fully awake will inspire you to breathe more freely, giving yourself the freedom to expand your lungs, exploring a deeper sense of connection to yourself and to the universe. Life doesn’t have to be complicated in order to be wonderful; sometimes it’s the simple things that actually bring the most enrichment and nourishment. So, allow yourself some time to breathe more consciously, take the time to notice the world beyond the daily grind and let yourself expand into new terrain with every breath you take…

Gemini

January looks set to be a month for you to open up to a brand new way of living and being as you finally let go of some long-held beliefs which have shaped and defined your world for many, many years. Although these beliefs no longer seem relevant to your life, it is important to acknowledge the role they have played in making you the person you are today. Whilst you may feel relieved to be shedding the old, don’t forget to honour it as it sails off into the sunset. At the same time, try not to immediately start searching for replacements the moment the ‘old’ reaches the horizon, instead try to give yourself some quiet time to be in the space between there and here in order to re-centre and re-balance.

It’s only natural to want to fill the spaces that appear in your life but sometimes those spaces carry more than fresh air and can be a source of tremendous inspiration and nourishment. In other words, don’t turn your back on the emptiness that remains once you let go of the ‘old’ as it seems likely to contain a great deal more than you might expect. It’s not always easy being comfortable with ‘space’ as it often reflects back into the depths of the soul. Yet, although it strips back layers to truth which can sometimes be uncomfortable, space also invites a deeper inner connection and this looks set to be the source of great enrichment for you now…

Cancer

The grass often looks greener on the other side on the fence and the sunshine often appears brighter on the other side of the hill. It’s easy to perceive how much better things are ‘over there’, particularly when things ‘over here’ are not as good as they could be, and it’s understandable to allow your gaze to wander, particularly as that greener grass and brighter sun look so appealing. Yet, intuitively you know that the sun shines on everyone in the same way; it doesn’t discriminate or choose to give some more sunshine than others. Of course, there’s a choice when it comes to standing in the shade or living in the Tropics, but the philosophy of greener grass and brighter sun occurring everywhere but where you are now really doesn’t have much credence in fact.

Yet, when you can see the grass is greener and you can see others wearing sunglasses, how can you not think that things must be better over there? Such a frustrating conundrum! January looks set to be a month for shifting the focus of your gaze and realizing that the grass under your own feet is actually rather green and that is because the sun is happily gazing down upon you. It seems you have become so focused on looking over ‘there’ you have failed to notice that the life where you are now is actually rather good. It seems time for you to stop splitting yourself in two by being here but wanting to be there and instead allowing yourself to live fully, vibrantly and consciously now…

Leo

‘What do you truly want?’ looks set to be the question that shapes and defines both your January and your year ahead as you begin to reconnect with everything that’s truly important in your life. For quite some time now, you have felt stuck on the treadmill of life, trying to be the person you thought you ought to be and trying to be everything to everyone around you. Although both of these are not untypical for a gallant and generous soul like you, it’s important to realise that there comes a time when over-giving of yourself becomes more of a detriment than a blessing (to both others and yourself). Sometimes, over-giving can deplete you as there is nothing left to give and you can become understandably reluctant to let go of any more when you can only just about keep your head above water.

Although things haven’t, by and large, been quite as bad as this, intuitively you can sense the top of the slippery slope that leads in this direction as you have been over-giving, over-doing and over-being for too long. Over-being may sound odd, but when you over-give, it becomes increasingly harder to be you, as a result, you ‘over-be’ as you push hard to reclaim your sense of self and this can feel a little hollow at times. You seem ready now to reset the balance in your life, to honour yourself more and to finally reconnect to the question: what do you truly want?

Virgo

January looks set to be a month of re-connecting to your deeper values and innermost needs as you shift the focus of your life away from doing, pushing and chasing towards being and conscious living. Such a shift may sound rather passive but it takes great strength to stop pushing so hard to instead let go and trust the flow more as it takes courage, determination and a willingness to let go of the handrails that have been your comfort blanket and reassurance for so long. The handrails are of course safety rails so you may be reluctant to unpeel your fingers from the bar; this is understandable, but it seems important that you at least explore these rails in order to understand their presence in your life and your need for them.

There is a sense that they have been around for so long that they are now second nature and a part of the furniture of your life. As a result, you don’t notice them and the role they play in your life. Safety rails have a purpose of course, but when they are carried around at all times (‘just in case’), they can become more of a burden than a blessing as they can prevent you from being you. Caution is wise but sometimes you need to trust a little more. You are a vibrant, passionate, creative and innovative soul, and the time has come to use these skills to fly free…

Libra

January looks set to be a month of wonder and awe as you take a step beyond the boundaries in your life in order to explore a new way of living and being. You have long contemplated living a life that allows you to fulfil your hopes and embrace your dreams; you have spent a long time shaping such a life in your mind, weighing up the pros and cons of different choices and decisions. Yet, despite having spent so long thinking about this, there is a sense that, when it boils down to it, you are still not completely clear as to what you truly want in life.

Many of your dreams are external goals; achievements to tick off your ‘to do’ list in life, yet what about the bigger picture? What about living joyfully, peacefully or contentedly? Only you know what’s truly important to you, but there is a sense that you have become so focused on what needs to be done to get you to where you want to be, you have lost sight on where you are now and on the deeper significance of how you want to live and how you want to feel. This isn’t about your ‘to do’ list, it’s about living well, being well and being you. The aforementioned month of wonder and awe comes from consciously embracing the realisation that life is about being rather than doing. Stepping beyond boundaries is an opportunity for you to re-shape and re-define your life from the inside, out…

Scorpio

As the power of your consciousness continues to expand and grow, there is a sense that you are beginning to see a new side to yourself as you open up to seeing both yourself and your life from a different perspective. You have long been open to re-invention and re-birth as you know that you are constantly evolving, growing and changing with each passing day. As a result, it has been hard for you to accept any attempts to make the moveable world immoveable; in other words, you don’t fight the flow of change, you ride with it. This has been hard to accept for many around you as it seems to be inherent within most humans to resist change and to cling on to everything that’s familiar.

Whilst you are not that keen on change and loss, your acceptance of it in the flow of life enables you to live your life more consciously as you do not chase horizons nor do you try to cling on to the past. Of course, such a liberated attitude can make it hard for you to settle comfortably into a role in life and stick with it without question as your free-spirited essence needs the space to roam, dance and be free. Yet, if being a free-spirit is your true essence, should you really fight or resist it? The new perspective emerging in January looks set to be a willingness within you to give your feisty, free-spirited self more freedom and space to be you…

Sagittarius

As you continue to find harmony and unity between your passionate heart and your powerful mind, there is a sense that you are beginning to gain a new sense of clarity when it comes to living the life you intuitively know you were born to live. You have always been aware of the gap between where you are (here) and where you want to be (there) and although you have remained driven and motivated to reach ‘there’, it seems your awareness of ‘there’ has diminished the power of ‘here’ as you have felt a deep sense of lack connected to feeling incomplete until you have achieved the dizzy heights of ‘there’.

Even though you intuitively know the power and the value of the present moment, it’s hard not to focus on where you want to be as this is a part of being human. Goals and dreams feed the spirit and inspire your creative and innovative flair. Yet, if you feel as though you cannot be truly happy until you have reached destination ‘there’, then the present moment will never be enough. January looks set to be a month for you to realise that here is not only enough but it is also rather magnificent as well. A willingness to be more conscious in the present moment will help you to realise that you are already whole. Of course, your dreams will still drive you forward, but not at the cost of now; after all, the present is all you ever truly have, so treasure it…

Capricorn

January looks set to be a month of clarity and vision for you when it comes to re-shaping your life and re-honing your dreams. For a long time now you have been keeping on keeping on, doing your best to fit in and working hard to be the person you felt you ought to be. As a result, there is a sense that you have become disconnected from your true sense of self, feeling more like one of the flock rather than the magical, mystical, unique sea goat you truly are. It’s easy sometimes to forget the real you as life so often consumes you with things to do, people to see and places to go. Yet, at the same time, you never truly lose sight of the real you as your awareness of the discord and disconnection is a sign that you know something is amiss.

This is a good sign as it means the journey back from where you are to where you want to be isn’t all that arduous; there is a sense that a shift in focus is all that’s needed to remind you of your strength, courage, vitality, vision and creativity. Quite what you do with all of these is up to you, but it seems clear that ignoring them isn’t serving you too well! Of course, it’s ultimately up to you how you live your life but the clarity and vision coming your way looks set to re-ignite a passion in your soul for embracing the magic of being you…

Aquarius

As you continue to re-shape and re-define your life and your ideals, there is a sense that you have reached a point of realisation that the picture or vision you have of your life is quite different to the reality you are living. It seems that such a perspective is a common part of being human as dreams versus reality can often drift apart over time. However, for many souls, this drift is something they never notice as life is too full of distractions, and so they can end up slowly moving further and further away from their dreams until they reach a point of disconnection. Yet, you are not like most people and so you are acutely aware of the incongruence between the two.

As a result, you frequently feel a sense of lack that, despite knowing of the incongruence, you still haven’t managed to bridge the gap. Of course you already know focusing on the gap gives it more power in your life but it’s hard not to notice it as you’ve chosen not to ignore it! January looks set to be a month of seeing the gap in a new way; not as something to conquer, but as something to love. There will always be a gap in life, that’s part of being human as we always have new horizons to explore. So, instead of seeing the gap as a challenge, love it and accept it, knowing that it is there to inspire you, and it’s presence will help you to evolve, flourish and blossom…

Pisces

As you stand in-betwixt 2014 and 2015 there is a sense that you are not quite sure whether to breathe a loud sigh of relief that one year is behind you or to whoop loudly at the adventure you intuitively know lies ahead. There can be no denying you have faced your fair share of challenges over the last twelve months and these have eroded your ‘you time’, ‘rest time’, ‘self-compassion time’ and ‘quality time’. Of course, there have been things to do, people to see and places to go, many of which are part of the mass of responsibility you carry on your shoulders and, although you have felt overwhelmed with the pressure at times, there is also a sense that you rather like the distraction of being busy as you sense that the ‘you time’, ‘rest time’ and self-compassion might open up a can of worms.

The can of worms is a fear that turning the spotlight back onto you might lead to a realisation that all is not quite as you want it to be in your life. Of course, all is not quite as you want it to be, but knowing this and doing something about it is quite different. January looks set to be an inspirational month for you, one where you start to honour and respect yourself much, much more. Remember, if you want to fully embrace life, you need to live it. You also need to love it, and this includes loving yourself, knowing yourself and being yourself…
