Hi Breeps!!

Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and are ready for tonight's festivities, New Year's Eve is always a funny one, some people love it and others dread it. My personal opinion, is to live in the moment. Celebrate today, live for today, don;t think about the past because it's gone and don't worry about the future, because it hasn't happened yet. So I raise a virtual glass to you all and cheers to Today.
Much love to you and Yours.

HAPPY NEW YEAR AND ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE IN 2013.

ARIES.
The new way of looking at life this past year in has brought a creative side of you to
light so make hay while the sun shines and impress those you can .The middle weeks from March will be busy for several weeks.

TAURUS
You have to clear all tasks and make space for a new beginning in the area of work.
By the end of February you will be able to chill out a little however after that be focused on what you are planning for the rest of the year.

GEM
What do you want to achieve by your present way of life.Who do you want to impress or push away .These are important questions for your attention this year coming and when you “feel “ what that is, rather than think it , life will blossom.

CAN
Be careful traveling this month ahead as the planets can throw you a wobbler of a time. Make plenty of time for departing and keep an eye on your belongings at all times. You will be making decisions on moving, maybe home or work by April.

LEO
This year ahead is very important  for you especially if you are signing papers or buying a home or expensive car.Just be sure to clarify all the terms before you sign. You will be more financially secure than for many a long year this coming year .

VIR
Most likely the work arena will not as you would wish but that’s life and as time and tide waits for no man do not dally when you need to take action in this area. This new year brings a lot of work your way if you step outside of your comfort zone.

LIB
As the karma planet Saturn sat in your life for a couple of years past the lesson learned is that you would be wise to listen to your intuition and make decisions as soon as you feel its right don’t procrastinate. He is sitting in your area of finances and its up to you how that works out.

SCOR
Jupiter the luck bringer will be blessing you plenty by in the spring as he sits in your money making area. This will bring interesting situations in to your life of a positive nature even though you may have felt isolated this year by circumstances which often have a reason for happening.

SAG
Just watch that temper if things don’t always go the way you planned this year life is an unfolding story books remember that child like curiosity you have and uncover the magic of new beginnings which will be in full swing come summer.

CAP
This could be the year that it all comes together or goes out the window it is entirely up to you how you make it work .So be sure this coming February you don’t let any body talk you out of something that can be very beneficial for you and  may not work so well for them.

AQU
You will always get back what you put out and just be careful you don’t say too much to others This can really blow up your good intentions. Keep your thoughts or judgments to your self this year especially in March. Later in the year home adjustments will be made.

PISC
This is the most creative year for you overall due to your dreamy boss Neptune visiting you for a long visit, so let your inner artist come out to play. You also must not be so open to another who would criticize you or your plans .You are the master of your own destiny.


And finally....  A brit of Humour
