Horoscope for the week: January 8, 2018 - January 14, 2018
On Monday, all that hard work will start to pay off. For a while there it seemed like nothing was ever going to get done, but by sheer force of will, you have turned a couple of lemons into the tastiest lemonade. You have this amazing ability to make the realization of your goals seem inevitable, and this is especially true on Wednesday and Thursday. People bend over backward to help you out. Now the challenge is going to be to set your sights on a new challenge. Use Friday and the weekend for planning your next steps. This is only the beginning of what is going to be a glorious ride.
At the start of the week, you encounter one obstacle you weren't expecting. People. Sometimes, you just don't feel like dealing with them. So, what's your plan? By midweek, you wisely figure that your best bet is going to be to try to destroy them with kindness. Figure out what it is this person really wants - Adoration? Attention? And then try to give that to them without actually giving in. You are a master diplomat, especially on Friday. It may take some time to see real changes, but you'll get a glimmer of hope over the weekend.

You're lost in your head on Monday. A couple of big ideas are churning around in your brain, and rather than engage in idle chitchat you're most likely going to decide to turn a little inward and let yourself daydream through midweek. That's perfectly okay. Explain to others that it's not personal; you just have a couple things on your mind. It's a pretty sure bet some people are going to think you're being aloof nonetheless, and you are, in a way, but that's your prerogative. Later in the week and over the weekend, you'll feel more social again.
On Monday, you have an idea about how you want this to go, while this other person has another. You just see things differently. And there's no way to tell, at this stage, who's right and who's wrong. Don't jump to any conclusions, especially midweek. You both have good intentions. Instead, take this all in stride. And, speaking of taking strides, go for a long walk or two, especially on Friday and Saturday. The world has so much to offer in terms of beauty and adventure. The quieter you are, the louder and more enjoyable the sounds of the outside world will become.
The NEXT sign needs to think about what they really want!
You know that old saying about how if you love something you should let it go? There's a lot of truth to that, especially at the start of the week. Lately, you've been clinging desperately to things that you just shouldn't have in your life. If they are meant to be, they will stay with you no matter what happens. Midweek is going to be about figuring out what things in your life are golden and what are merely gold-plated. Just because something glitters, as you know, doesn't mean it's valuable. This weekend, you're going to learn something new about someone you love, and it's going to change everything.
Your old system? Obsolete. Doesn't work for you anymore, you realize at the beginning of the week. As your life continues to change, your routines need to change, too. Maybe you should start waking up earlier. Maybe you should take more risks and be less rigid in your ideas about others. Maybe you just need a new file cabinet to keep your incoming mail organized. Whatever it is, be open to your own evolution, especially on Wednesday and Thursday. Change can be scary, but these changes are for the better. Toward the end of the week, you're going to meet someone who's a lot less organized than you are, and it's going to drive you nuts!
It's possible that romance is in the air for the NEXT sign!
At the week's start, you get what you've been waiting for: Someone to spend the day with, laughing and dancing (and, if this is a romantic figure, perhaps even a little snuggling). Life is suddenly fun again. Weird how fast that can happen, huh? This is going to be a roller coaster of a week, especially Wednesday. Lots of good stuff, plus a couple of boring stretches of time tossed into the mix. If anything, the boring hours will make all the fun you're having seem that much more wonderful. This weekend is going to be all about you and your special someone.
On Monday, you have tons of questions: What's going on at home? Why does everything suddenly seem so chaotic? And, the bigger question, does it have anything to do with you? If at all possible, don't involve yourself in the madness. Let the others hammer out a solution. You have bigger fish to fry. And better things to do. Wednesday and Thursday, in particular, are going to be top-notch days, full of creative games and hilarious situations. Your friends are amazingly fun to be around. Over the weekend, though, you should take it easy. The world will be strewn with 'Watch Your Step' signs. Lay low and don't do anything wild.
Too many things going on for the NEXT sign. Talk about it with someone close!
How are you feeling? What's going on in your head? Get it off your chest at the start of the week. At the very least, put it all in an email to a good friend and send it off. It will feel so great to know there is someone else in the world who knows what's really going on. If you find yourself having trouble getting revved up by the middle of this week, well, that's to be expected. No amount of coffee is going to fix that. You need your spiritual batteries recharged, and you're storing up your energy for sunnier days. Sunnier days are on their way. The weekend will be particularly bright.
Monday, it's time to start planning for the future. No sense in expecting things to take care of themselves. If you sit down and write out your goals, that will make them that much more tangible. And once your goals are tangible, you'll be able to create a plan of action, especially on Wednesday and Thursday. You have all the materials you need, and you have a couple of troops ready to go into battle for you. Use Friday to decide what the marching orders are. This weekend, your priorities are going to temporarily shift a little bit. Someone in your family is going to need a favor.
This week is all about themselves for the NEXT sign!
On Monday, you're feeling great. You have a lot of energy and clarity and you finally know where you're going. Too bad on Tuesday that your friends are all out of sorts. (Maybe you can use your own clear-headedness to help them out?) There's a chance that you're going to be distracted from your mission later in the week, again, a friend is going to need something, and you're going to feel like it's important to come through for them, but this weekend you'll have the opportunity to turn your thoughts back to the things that really matter to you.
You can only help so many people at once. You're just one person. Still, you're feeling a tad superheroic, and there's a chance you'll be able to pull off a couple of superhero-worthy stunts on Monday. But on Tuesday or Wednesday, you're going to start feeling drained. Remember: even superheroes need their rest. Spend Thursday and Friday restoring your energy and doing stuff you really love to do. This weekend, a whole new challenge is going to present itself, and you're going to want to be as clear-headed as possible. (A hint: not everything will be as it appears.)
