We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.

Happy 2013! I bet a lot of you are wondering where 2012 went, I know that I am! How do you control your year? Your day? Your hour? By first making the conscious choice to do just that and then creating a strategy, taking action and continue taking action is the magic formula to feeling grounded and in control.
Whatever your dream is for 2013 is, you must know that it isn’t always outside factors that are causing your life to go down that dead-end street; it is you that is driving that way. If you didn’t find your romantic partner in 2012, then maybe you weren’t in the right vibrational alignment with yourself that could then attract the right partner. The same can be said for job, money, and even health.
So, what is stopping you? Are you afraid of what will happen if you put it in reverse and go down a strange street? Are you afraid of the work, or are you afraid that all your dreams can and will come true? Oh, don’t be a sissy…. get on the ride called life, strap yourself in and make the changes that create your best life ever!
December 22 – January 19
Don’t have anybody to snuggle with in front of the fireplace, Capricorn? After January 10th it will be a fabulous time for you to find that snuggle partner. So, sign up for ski lessons, join an online dating site, let your friends set you up on a blind date or simply just see who looks attractive at the gym and introduce yourself. All eyes will be on you, Cap, and there is an excellent chance that you end up finding that someone special that could last a lifetime. If you are already in a partnership, the bond will grow stronger, just make sure that you schedule some time away from your busy work schedule – maybe even a long weekend at a cute Bed and Breakfast, so spice things up.
January 20 – February 18
The last few years have certainly been a crazy roller coast ride for you, Aquarius. Okay, maybe has been more like twelve years! But as you ring in the New Year, the negative attitude that you’ve had over the constant romantic challenges will fade and your loving, romantic self will shine through. January will bring new friendships and encounters which will make February something to really look forward to. Watch out, Aquarius, you will be irresistible this year, and there is a strong chance that you will find your soul mate. Good things do come to those who wait.
February 19 – March 20
You may have to be hosed down, Pisces, because January starts with you on fire – and you and others know it and are attracted by it. Sometimes you put your foot in your mouth with your bluntness, but the opposite sex will find you charming, funny and extremely sexy. If you haven’t found love, then the last week of January is an excellent time for you to strut your sexy self, and if it doesn’t happen then, don’t fret because March brings another opportunity. If you are in a relationship, you will get the admiration that you always believed you deserved.
March 21 – April 19
2013 begins with a romantic vibe, Aries. Single Aries may believe that Cupid won’t (or can’t) find you, but the month of January, all the way into late February, brings unexpected encounters. So if you are feeling as if 2012 romantically wronged you, brush yourself off and go to every and any social gathering that you are invited to over the next month as there will be a great chance to meet that special someone. If you are already in a relationship, January is a great time for you to reconnect as friends and as lovers. Misunderstandings from the past and buried anger can be released so that 2013 can be started on the right foot.
April 20 – May 20
You have been so consumed with worries and stresses that romance has really taken a back seat, Taurus. January for you isn’t the most ideal time for you to seek out a partner, but instead to work on loving yourself and reclaiming your identity, so that by March (which is an ideal time for love for you) when an opportunity for a romance knocks on your door, you are ready and not still scrambling to get your life in order. Those in a relationship may feel a bit unsteady through the month of January, and because Taurus is normally grounded and together, it may make you second guess your current relationship. Hold off and look within to see if it might be you that you aren’t happy with.
May 21 – June 20
Gemini’s have certainly been through the Merry-Go-Round of emotion when it comes to love and romance, and 2013 is no exception. January will start out with you feeling extra sensitive and maybe even nostalgic. There are still past hurts and issues that just cannot be buried, but must be let go of and burned. Make sure that you take care of yourself, because this year will have you emotionally taking care of your partner and your family. Be careful that your emotion don’t come across as needy and even whiny, but don’t feel discouraged, Gemini, it won’t all be for not. If you start out the year seeing, learning and letting go of what you did wrong in 2012, and forgiving what others did to you in years past, and set the intentions and affirmations for 2013 that you are ready to jump off the Merry-Go-Round and take control of your own love life – you will have the upper hand. For those single and those in a relationship, January may bring an interaction from an old flame. Just remember that an ex is an ex for a reason.
June 21 – July 22
You start out with your emotions feeling fluid, Cancer, and those single or in turbulent relationships will feel the sadness and heightened emotion through the entire month of January. It’s as if there is a love storm that has been circling you for the past few years, and the fear of making any changes, have you hiding for cover in the basement. It is smart for you to do that, Cancer, because relationships will be tested through the end of January. Be careful what you say, be careful what you do, and make sure that you are honoring yourself through all of this. Feel like crying? Cry! Feel like throwing pillows? Throw! Feel as if the relationship is wrong? Then you are probably right! The dust will settle in mid-January and you can come out of your shelter. Relationships meant to last, will at this time, but those of you who have doubts, will more than likely be making some huge changes. Even though change can be sad, it doesn’t mean that it is bad, and as the end of January arrives, that old Cancer confidence will begin to bubble once more.
July 23 – August 22
Leo, you’ve spent the last few years focusing a lot on your career and not so much on love. Yawn. The good news is that 2013 brings you the special formula for balancing both of them. In fact, there is a good chance that by the end of 2013 you may be working hard on planning a wedding, a baby, or both!
Rarely spontaneous, Leo, January finds you gifting yourself some down time and a fancy free feeling, which allows you to meet new people, experience new opportunities and finally understand that work and no play really does make for a dull Leo and a dull love life. 2013 will sparkle in all sectors!
August 23 – September 22
2013 starts out to be a happy month for you, Virgo, and if you haven’t found a serious love relationship, the gym is a great place to look! Love energy is certainly swirling around you this year and you will feel more connected to yourself and what you want more than ever, and a more secure person makes for a more relationship. It looks like my little Virgo has grown!
September 23 – October 22
January begins with you fretting over everything from love to money. When will you learn that worrying only brings you wrinkles and gray hair, Libra? Don’t fret, though, because by the end of January you will feel as if you are finally in control again. So, take the wheel and drive, Libra. The last few years you have wished upon stars. This year is about you becoming more assertive and making it happen. If you are single and lonely, change it. If you are in a relationship and it feels stale, spice it up.
October 23 – November 21
The last few years whatever you’ve touched has turned to gold, and 2013 is no exception. You continue on your soul journey, finally feeling content with yourself and with the social circle around you, and that is saying a lot because you don’t trust too many, Scorpio. By the end of January, your partner or love interest, may ask for your help in a career partnership and normally love and work can be a disastrous combination, but with you, Scorpio, sometimes they have to merge in order to get any time with you!
If you are single, January is a great time to put yourself out in the dating scene. In a relationship, it will continue to get stronger.
November 22 – December 21
Cupid is hot on your trail this month, Sag. You might not feel quite ready to find “the one”, but instead to have a January fling, which is okay. Any way you look at it, the opposite sex will be fawning over you and your ego will sure get pumped up. Those who are attached will find a calm and even sexy January with their love.
