Scorpio (October 22nd to November 21st)
I used to believe that how you start your new year is really how it would go the whole year. I haven’t found this to be the case, after observing and reflecting on this for decades. However, a whack start to a new year takes a while from which to re-cover. So here’s a quick guide to avoid a whack start. 1) Don’t sweat the little stuff. There’s a lot of Mars activity at the start of the New Year, so that suggests ample op-portunity to get pissed off. Knowing this, perhaps you can decide not to get or stay pissed off. 2) Pay attention to the feeling and intention behind words or actions. An-other way to say this is to stay present. Don’t let your head run off with hypotheti-cals. Trust what you’re feeling, whether good or bad from others, and take positive action from there.
