    Month in Brief.

    Go to TopSun Jan 1: New Year's Day
    Happy New Year, Cancer! You are energetic and full of optimism today and this should set the tone for the coming year. You are likely to find that your needs are more or less fulfilled and obstacles cleared to your satisfaction. Thanks to Jupiter, you could hear some good news later in the day. Check out your stars for the year ahead! Fortunate colours are rose quartz and blue sapphire. Lucky numbers are 3 and 10.
    Go to TopMon Jan 2: Be Flexible
    Something about your personality or appearance is drawing a lot of attention today, dear Cancer. Is your stubborn streak is showing? Flexibility might be easier under the ambitious Aries Moon. Be kind to those with long memories, especially if you think you might run into them again at some point in your life. If you can't think of anything nice to say, don't say anything at all. Get together with friends tonight. Fortunate colours are plum and apricot. Lucky numbers are 30 and 32.
    Go to TopTue Jan 3: Quick Draw
    No one can accuse you of being a wallflower today! You won't be afraid to tell it like it is. Your responses are quick, and your timing near perfect. If you don't accomplish what you set out to do by the end of the day, it won't be for lack of trying. Getting an 'A' for effort is sometimes better than facing the test. Beneficial colours are terracotta and bronze. Lucky numbers are 20 and 30.
    Go to TopWed Jan 4: So What?
    You may not be privy to every little thing that's going on around you, but so what? Crabs can't always be in control, but you don't need to feel insecure, either. Thanks to your inside knowledge (and your collection of gadgets), you appear to be almost godlike to those who don't have the same access as you do. Just make sure you memorise the important bits, in case the system goes down. Favourable colours are pale yellow and sky blue. Lucky numbers are 11 and 25.
    Go to TopThu Jan 5: Edgy Day
    It's a moody kind of day for the Crab, even a bit edgy with the Moon in Gemini. Annoying people keep bugging you, so it's best to keep your own counsel. In fact, you are better off taking the day off if you can, so that you get some private time to rebuild your inner structure and charge those spiritual batteries. Propitious colours are emerald green and purple sage. Lucky numbers are 12 and 16.
    Go to TopFri Jan 6: In Your Shell
    It's a struggle to display your real emotions today, dear Cancer. Being so sensitive, the smallest things do hurt your feelings, but no one else is likely to realize what's going on since you retreat into your shell at these times. It's not a conscious decision, but frustration may make you blue when you can't explain the pain. Beneficial colours are pale green and charcoal. Lucky numbers are 7 and 12.
    Go to TopSat Jan 7: Forge Ahead
    The urge to move onward powered by your wisdom opens up today, even if you are still feeling a bit fragile. After all, dear Cancer, when you're right, you're right. You know that further explanation is unnecessary, but the people you're dealing with might need it spelled out for them. Take the time to draw a picture or use simpler words to get your point across. It will be much more relaxed tomorrow. Favourable colours are crimson and pearl. Lucky numbers are 29 and 36.
    Go to TopSun Jan 8: Out In Front
    Embrace the moment, even as you throw yourself into the uncertain future. What's going to come next? What seem like spontaneous decisions are actually emerging from knowledge deep within you. If you have a plan in mind to get what you want, this is the time to implement it. Legal matters, debates, contract negotiations, partnership and other alliances, and joint ventures of any kind are in the picture. Business and romantic rivals can't compete with you at the moment. Excellent colours are jade and charcoal. Lucky numbers are 1 and 7.
    Go to TopMon Jan 9: Full Moon
    Wake up to a special day, with the Full Moon in your sign -- although it may not seem that way at first. Make a conscious decision to think of things in a more positive light, dear Cancer. Each passing hour strips away another layer of doubt, leaving you totally fancy free by evening. The Universe is starting to return you to your natural state. Delight, ease and energy are there for the time being, so put them to good use. Fortunate colours are ruby red and caramel. Lucky numbers are 1 and 7.
    Go to TopTue Jan 10: Look Before You Leap
    Although it's tempting to butt into other people's business, it's in your best interests to hold back and keep a low profile. A fool rushes in where angels fear to tread, so advance scouting would be worth your while. There are limits as to how far a professional relationship should go; the trial and error approach could be costly. However, a lucky financial break could be yours today. Cautious colours are silvery grey and foxglove. Lucky numbers are 12 and 30.
    Go to TopWed Jan 11: Needs Vs Wants
    An urge to look at the financials could take hold of you, but your responsibilities and the needs of others could keep you from this investigation. It's a good day for realizations about the forces that drive you, perhaps by accident rather than design. Just go with the flow. Creeping uncertainty makes you nervous. Things get clearer later in the week. Favourable colours are olive green and bright orange. Lucky numbers are 17 and 39.
    Go to TopThu Jan 12: First Out
    There is no reward for coming second now, dear Crabs. You need to be first out of the gate if you hope to make any real progress. Is an important relationship in a state of flux? Think about others as well as yourself. Communication is the key, especially if the law is involved. There's a lot to do, but you should be able to accomplish everything on your list if you plan things in advance. Fortunate colours are rich red and laurel green. Lucky numbers are 11 and 32.
    Go to TopFri Jan 13: Be Noticed!
    Crustaceans won't get anywhere if they insist on waiting in the wings and the best way to advance is to get more deeply involved. It's time to stand up and take notice, as well as be noticed. You're sure to find that many interesting things have happened since you last gave things your full attention. Take inspiration from a competitor who is getting ahead of you. Instead of being envious, pay close attention to what they are doing right. Read more on Friday 13th! Beneficial colours are pink and spring green. Lucky numbers are 25 and 34.
    Go to TopSat Jan 14: Sense Of Timing
    Your sense of timing is a off at the moment: when making out your schedule, keep in mind that being too early is just as bad as being too late. Higher education, religious activities, political interests, and cultural pursuits take on a more social atmosphere this month. Romance, marriage, or any cooperative venture involving a foreign country or someone of another culture or race is stimulated. Make sure you think things through carefully before blurting out the first thing that comes to mind. Stabilising colours are sage green and pewter. Lucky numbers are 4 and 25.
    Go to TopSun Jan 15: Good Fortune
    You might be in charge, but that doesn't give you the right to work other people beyond their capacities. Lighten up, Cancer. Good fortune comes your way without any pressure. This is, or should be, a day off from your usual pace. You might be surprised at how natural it feels to put on a friendly face. Fortunate colours are sapphire blue and silver. Lucky numbers are 28 and 37.
    Go to TopMon Jan 16: Stars On Side
    Nothing much can get by you today, my dear Crustaceans. Even though it's Monday, the atmosphere is fresh and alive. Are you ready to take on the entire world? Sure you are. If there's any mystery in the works, you're eager to get to the bottom of it. You're in your element today. Take clues from outside sources where possible. You never know where your next big idea will come from. Fortunate colours are cobalt blue and red satin. Lucky numbers are 32 and 39.
    Go to TopTue Jan 17: Fully Centred
    You're fully centred and completely aware of your surroundings. Mystery is attractive to you today and not sinister at all. You're free, articulate and ready for the next step. This is a great time to explore new places: take a long lunch and walk through a different part of the city, or try a new cafe this evening. Your world is full of possibilities: you'd be foolish not to participate. Favourable colours are sage green and sunset pink. Lucky numbers are 9 and 25.
    Go to TopWed Jan 18: Wrong Side of the Bed?
    Any side of the bed feels like the wrong side this morning, so you might as well stay where you are. The other option (and perhaps the more reasonable) is to leave the house in full battle gear. Clearly it would be easier to have a day of rest, but if that isn't possible, you must find a way to persevere. If you're in a position of authority at work, delegate as many of your tasks as possible. Fortunate colours are peach and rose. Lucky numbers are 33 and 34.
    Go to TopThu Jan 19: Crab Crawl
    Speed is a useless and frustrating force for Crabs at the moment. Slow down before you do something you'll regret. From the beginning, you always knew that there would be a downside to this whole operation. It never hurts to try to look on the bright side: at least any bad news today will make tomorrow's good news sound even better. Auspicious colours are ruby red and jet black. Lucky numbers are 17 and 18.
    Go to TopFri Jan 20: Stay True
    Tell others what they want to hear, but not to the point of telling an outright lie. Take extra care to be sincere, because sooner or later your stretches of the truth are going to catch up with you, especially in the financial world. As the day progresses, starry-eyed potential and hardheaded reality begin falling into line. It's possible to achieve your goals and stay true to yourself, but you might have to go out of your way to do it. Appropriate colours are tan and orange. Lucky numbers are 3 and 12.
    Go to TopSat Jan 21: Reap the Benefits
    Do something to surprise yourself or someone else today. You'll feel like being adventurous and trying something different for a change. Don't be afraid to go where no Crab has gone before: even if you don't like the result, other people's expressions of delight will make it all worthwhile. Someone close to you loves that you're unpredictable. Reap the benefits from this change of attitude! Beneficial colours are smooth bronze and clotted cream. Lucky numbers are 33 and 34.
    Go to TopSun Jan 22: Big Egos
    Why is everyone questioning your motives today? After all, your efforts are no doubt noble and necessary. But where's the gratitude? Pay attention to your style of delivery, and with a few subtle changes, you can make this picture perfect. There is more at work behind the scenes than you think and if big egos are involved, be among the first to drop the attitude. Beneficial colors are charcoal and mint. Lucky numbers are 16 and 26.
    Go to TopMon Jan 23: New Moon, Year Of The Dragon
    A New Moon in your eighth house could see a major development with financial involvements or joint obligations. Make sure your payment schedules are up to date. Prepare for an interruption (or an end) in a fiscal situation, and you may need to allocate funds from lesser priorities. Occult interests may come forward; a break, or a new start, in your sexual and psychological interests is in the air. Be sure your taxes are current, or you could be struggling in the Year of the Dragon! Fortunate colors are pale green and pearl grey. Lucky numbers are 7 and 8.
    Go to TopTue Jan 24: Mars Retrograde
    Mars turns retrograde in Virgo, so the weeks ahead are apt to be swamped with information and ideas, much of it misleading. Travel and transportation are highlighted and you'll be keen to update your phones, and other gadgets. Be sure to take care in any detailed issues connected with this, because circumstances may create obstacles to your action. If you are planning a trip or the purchase and sale of a car, it might pay to wait until you have thoroughly investigated everything connected with this. Read more on Mars retrograde! Protective colors are yellow and lilac. Lucky numbers are 3 and 7.
    Go to TopWed Jan 25: Give It Your All
    Choose something you're good at, then give it your all. Your favourite game is begging to be played in the professional arena. Others are so impressed that they might not even bother to compete. This is the perfect time to capitalize on your speed and strength. Be careful which fires you start; people are going to expect you to put them out eventually. Advantageous colors are clay red and spring green. Lucky numbers are 8 and 10.
    Go to TopThu Jan 26: Try Something New
    Cancer is always looking for the angle, but today is a good day to let your preconceived notions go. Don't be afraid to try something new, just for the pleasure of it. The advantages of your discoveries are clear -- not just to you, but to everyone else as well. The best moments are spent with the people you truly care about. Beneficial colors are shocking pink and neon green. Lucky numbers are 26 and 41.
    Go to TopFri Jan 27: Softly Softly
    A loud voice doesn't carry as far as a soft one right now. Don't overwhelm people, Cancer. You don't want to ride roughshod over potential future allies. Your strong suit is most often your subtlety. Of course, a small dose of exuberance is fine, unless it leads to a careless mistake. Whatever you want to accomplish today, it's important to strike some kind of balance. Harmonious colors are lavender and sea green. Lucky numbers are 12 and 30.
    Go to TopSat Jan 28: Keep Your Head Down
    The less you expect everything to go your way, the better off you'll be. Those who like being watched will just have to be satisfied with a distant audience right now. Divisions between people are wider than they usually are. For now, keep your head down and concentrate on the thankless tasks that need to be done. Auspicious colors are midnight blue and lavender. Lucky numbers are 3 and 21.
    Go to TopSun Jan 29: Career Issues
    Career issues move into the foreground. The good news for Crustaceans is that the market is becoming increasingly friendly to someone with your particular talents. Make sure you keep things on a professional level at all times. If you have to explain something more than once, then you may be dealing with the wrong person. Favorable colors are ruby red and sapphire. Lucky numbers are 4 and 27.
    Go to TopMon Jan 30: Truth And Justice
    There's something fishy going on, Crabs. Be sure to get to the bottom of things, even if it costs you a friendship or two. Luck is on your side, so if you are on a quest for truth and justice, just be sure that one of those hairs you split isn't your lifeline. You still have a long way to go, so don't burn all your bridges. Developments later in the day could be quite transformative. Advantageous colors are pale gold and lavender. Lucky numbers are 7 and 10.
    Go to TopTue Jan 31: Your Choice
    You're vulnerable to your emotions and feelings, but you should start to feel more confident and happy as the day progresses. A stressful situation at work threatens to get on top of you, but it doesn't have to, if you don't let it. If you can, do something that takes your mind off things. Divert yourself with friends and associates. Companionable colors are cerise and charcoal. Lucky numbers are 3 and 7.
