Astrologer Patsy Bennett checks out what the stars have in store for you this month.

2015 promises to put the icing on the cake of exciting ideas and plans which were already underway in 2014; and the month of January will provide the opportunity to review and reconsider various areas of your life – or even attitudes – which no longer serve your purpose moving forward.

Think back to the most positively life-changing events of 2014, and get set for these areas to step up a notch in 2015. Developments during the days either side of the Full Moon on January 5 will further clarify which circumstances will grab your attention for at least the first few months in 2015.

Be ready to step up to your full potential, especially cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn (although we all have some aspects of these in our birth charts). To do so, it’s time to let go of outworn behaviour patterns and to seek new methods to get ahead.

2015 is all about self-transformation, especially if you’re already seeking self-improvement on some level, be this through gentle exercise such as yoga, creative visualisations, or in-depth spiritual practices, such as deep contemplative meditation or prayer, for example.

The interception of Uranus with the Moon’s South Nodes mid-January will steer you on-track in a direction which really does resonate with you on a deeper level. This is the year to step up to your own personal goals, and teachers and people with a seemingly fated connection will arrive to help you to do so.

The New Moon on January 21 will help you to think outside the box, and it promises to help Aquarians, Leos, Taureans and Scorpios, especially, to move forward with carefully laid plans. The New Moon is always a good time to take steps into new territory or to take a fresh direction, so set your intentions and aim for your goals then, as the cosmic climate will support your efforts.
