There is an extremely powerful alignment of planets right now, which jump-starts the New Year and gives you a mighty push into 2014! The coming 4 weeks are important to map out what you want to accomplish this year. New Year's resolutions are all fine and nice, but think bigger. Where do you want to be a year from now? Maybe you want to improve your health, or find a new job, or build a financial nest egg, or get a business off the ground, or develop a new skill or knowledge, or bring new love into your life, or let go of an old love that is only complicating your life, and so on. Write down a list of things you would like to accomplish.

Now: pick one. Just one (for now). Take some time and focus on it, imagine it, think about it. What does it look like? Smell like? Sound like? How will you feel when you've reached your destination, and how will your life be different? What parts of your life will be affected positive or negative? When you think about this goal, what do you love about it? Write it down. It can help you remember where you're going and why you want to get there. What about your goal scares you or makes you uncomfortable, overwhelmed or sad? Write it down. These things are meant to remind you of why you're on this path, how you get stuck, and (most important) the fact that to some extent you've already managed to make some progress with it. And if you did it once, you can do it again, as many times as it takes.

Next, plot a course from here to there. What is one thing that needs to happen before you can take that final step across the finish line? Okay, what needs to happen in order for that to fall into place? Approach it logically or brainstorm intuitive ideas whatever works for you, write it down. You're just gathering ideas now, nothing's written in stone. If there are steps missing in your path, don't worry about it right now; just make a placeholder for it with a note that you need to figure out how to get from the step before it to the one after it. Maybe a trusted friend or advisor can help fill in the gaps.

At some point, you'll arrive back at the present and you'll know what your next step is. What your first step is. Write it down. Keep a log of steps you have taken. What worked and what didn't. What you learned from it. Keep fine-tuning your plan. If deadlines help you to keep moving then estimate some realistic deadlines for various steps along your path. If deadlines just make you feel claustrophobic and pressured, then think in terms of milestones instead; something you can clearly define so you'll know when you have (or haven't yet) achieved it. As always, write them down.

And finally, celebrate your victories all of them! Whether they're big or small, major turning points or just inching your way along the path, it's important to give yourself that credit, feedback and encouragement. Remember that this is a plan, a guideline, not a contract written in stone and signed in blood. If you feel too pressured or overwhelmed, take some time to find a place of calm inner balance before you proceed. If you get stuck, consider whether you might be trying to do too much. It may help to simplify you're approach or break it down into smaller steps. If you're feeling exhausted, discouraged, stressed out or depressed, give yourself permission to be human and have your feelings, but also dare to believe in yourself and your ability to move beyond them when you're ready.

Happy New Year 2014!

Lunar Forecast for the

FULL MOON in CANCER

This Forecast in effect
January 15 to 30, 2014

The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

This year started off with a challenge to formulate a plan for what you want to accomplish this year and where you want to be by this time next year. Have you nailed down your plan yet? Perhaps you're feeling a bit anxious about whether you've constructed a solid enough plan, or whether you're really up to the task. Or maybe you're anxious to get moving and feeling frustrated that it's taking longer to make it happen than you had hoped. Or you might be having doubts. For example, you may really want the destination at the end of your path, but the journey to get there is starting to feel a bit daunting. Or you may be chugging along quite nicely and just want to make sure you don't "run out of gas" and lose the momentum.

There is a piece that needs to be put into place at this point in your development, which consists of feelings, intuition and creativity. It may be all too easy to get lost in the mechanics of what needs to be done and what comes next, and forget that you're still a human being (not a machine). You need variety, safety, socializing with trusted others and to be able to express your feelings about it all. If you stick too closely to the plan, you might start to feel a bit starved for comfort and connection, or lose your sense of why you're doing this in the first place. You, the fallible human being, need to be part of the equation for success or you risk becoming drained and despondent.

Structure can be your friend at this point in your journey. Make room in your schedule for playtime, fun, rest and socializing, especially with people you trust and feel comfortable around. Some comfort food and other soothing things could be helpful too. The idea is to nurture your Inner Child and allow him/her to participate in the process and contribute to it with gifts that only a child has to give fun, silliness, expression of feelings and comfort. If you're escaping a bit too much into those things, give yourself some gentle discipline through structure. Build into your daily routine some time when you can just listen to your Inner Child and hear whatever s/he has to say, like "I'm scared" or "I'm excited" or "I'm curious" or "I want to play" or "I want comfort food" or "I want a hug," and so on. When your Inner Child is getting enough attention and being heard, s/he won't be pestering you while your Adult is trying to work and do the things that are necessary.
