Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)  
January is named after the Roman god Janus. Janus was often depicted dual faced and hung over doors and gates. He had one face looking one way toward the past and another facing opposite, toward the future. Interestingly, the temples of Janus were closed in times of peace and open during times of war. If Janus had a temple in your life, it would be open. Perhaps you intuitively know that and it might have you fearing the worst aspects of “war,” like loss and pain. But this “war” going forward will require a sacrifice, but it’s not only of a material kind. You could also gain some rewards.  However, going forward, you sharpen your will and mettle to go for what you want or release other things that must be lost to preserve what’s most impor-tant to keep.
