Your Starsign

Scorpio

October 23 - November 22


Today's Horoscope for Sunday January 21st

You will want to nurture loved ones and friends out there in the social scene. Just don't mother them and smother them, because they may not all take to it very kindly. Just keep singing, dancing and laughing and you reach the same result of boosting everyone's morale. In a generally positive frame of mind, you'll find your popularity rising, though you could get a little ahead of yourself or above yourself. Jupiter in your own sign can boost your sense of your own self-importance.


The Weekly Outlook from 15th January

Success, work promotion, or just a bit more money, - something nice is happening that gives you a feeling that you are more in control of your life. You have got more power so you can make things work a little bit better for yourself.

If loved ones are vague or evasive, try to be forgiving rather than critical.rnA fairly heavy everyday schedule may weigh you down at times, making you want to withdraw, getting sensitive to those who won't listen at work or out in the neighbourhood. Maybe you need to change your approach. Be persistent in getting your message across, listen to feedback and find out what those around really want to hear. Being less dogmatic or forceful will help. Getting organised will be key, streamline your efficiency and manage your time well.rnSince nothing will stay the same for long at work, try to schedule in time for reflection and de-stressing, since you will get highly-strung at times. Be open to new methods and new approaches. Go with the flow and even if certain projects don't work, others will. One door closes, another opens.rnLuckily with Jupiter in your sign till November, your confidence will stay high and luck will be on your side. You'll attract enthusiastic responses from everyone you meet as well as resources. Late in the year, money will roll in faster. And probably disappear just as quickly since your spending will shoot up. Try to save some of your good fortune as you go.rnFrom July you'll be aiming to spread your wings to bring more excitement and adventure into your life. This'll be the time to find your vision and follow your dreams. Your ambitions will need a hefty push as well if you are to get the praise you want for your abilities. Don't be a shrinking violet. Take the initiative and make it happen over the next few months.
