Daily Horoscope: Sunday 8 January 2017

Aries

You will be asked to train a newcomer. Whenever possible, try putting yourself in their place. It’s unfair to expect someone with so little experience to learn the ropes right away. Treat every question with respect. If you sense your explanation is too advanced, offer a more basic breakdown of the facts. Very few people learn as quickly as you. That’s why it’s important to slow down and make sure your instructions are clear. It’s your job to create a supportive, stimulating learning environment.

Taurus

Undertaking an intensive course of study will be refreshing. Lately, you’ve been performing a predictable job that has dulled your creative edge. Changing direction will be lots of fun. Don’t be surprised when you discover some hidden talents. You’ve always been very good with hands on projects. What you may not realise is your ability to think conceptually. Your ability to envision new ways of doing things will earn the respect and admiration for your teacher. Don’t be afraid to make bold decisions.

Gemini

A social activity will lead to romance, if you so desire. You’ll feel an immediate connection with someone who shares your love of a writer, musician or filmmaker. You have unique tastes that can make you feel like an outsider. Talking to someone who knows what you are talking about will be a great relief. Whether you decide to become friends or romantic partners is ultimately unimportant. Either way, you’ll bring a great deal of happiness to each other’s lives.

Cancer

When it comes to looking for work, think about the long-term future. Accepting an entry level job at a company with lots of growth opportunity will be very smart. You’ve got tremendous leadership ability, but won’t be able to exercise it until you get some experience. You do especially well in caring professions. For you, your career isn’t simply a means to make money. It’s a way to help others and make the world a better place. If you stay true to this ideal, you won’t go wrong.

Leo

Your charm, wit and intelligence make a great impression wherever you go. If you’re looking for love, you will find it easily. Resist the urge to hook up with a moody brooder who brings everybody down. You’ll fare much better with a fellow optimist. When you’re in such a person’s company, magical things will happen. Instead of dreaming about travel and adventure, you’ll act on your impulses. Are you already in a serious relationship? Encourage your amour to develop a creative project.

Virgo

It’s important to think for yourself regarding a cultural matter. Your family believes strongly in one way of life, but you’re more open minded. Trusting your instincts will pave the way for a strong friendship. Certain relatives will discourage you from getting you too close to someone from a foreign background. Thank them for their concern and then do exactly what you want. You’re the type who likes working with people from all walks of life. This flexibility paves the way for your personal success.

Libra

Your excellent communication abilities will be useful. Someone who speaks English as a foreign language may depend on you to interpret confusing instructions or articulate a complicated message. Be patient and friendly. Your helpful attitude will be rewarded in surprising ways. Everybody has had the experience of being a fish out of water. That’s why it’s so important to be compassionate towards newcomers. At some point, you’ll be placed in the same situation.

Scorpio

Take this opportunity to negotiate a better financial deal for yourself. Ask for a raise, demand a higher percentage of the profits or request a lower interest rate. Be friendly and courageous throughout this exchange. It’s difficult to turn down someone who exudes positive energy. You can be persistent without being rude. Doing some research will work in your favour. If you can show others are being paid more to perform your job, you will get the money you deserve.

Sagittarius

The more varied your experience, the more successful you will be. Never turn down an opportunity to learn something new, even if it means looking awkward in the early stages. Putting yourself in uncomfortable situations on a regular basis will make you more flexible. Soon, it will be no trouble at all to accept training from a seasoned teacher. Resist the temptation to pass judgement on instructors who are much older or younger. Age has nothing to do with a person’s ability to give guidance.

Capricorn

You’ve got a vivid imagination, but not many people are interested in hearing your ideas. Try not to take their indifference personally. By developing a brilliant concept in secret, your confidence will soar. The time you devote to your project, the easier it will be to promote it in a compelling way. By this time next month, you’ll get a very different response from your proposal. An adventurous entrepreneur will offer to fund an invention, business or charitable initiative.

Aquarius

Making plans for the future fills you with excitement. You’re finishing a job that took far too long to complete. It will be a relief to put this assignment behind you. Moving forward, you won’t have to slow your pace for less talented workers. Instead, you’ll be able to take a brilliant idea and run with it. Someone who is impressed by your initiative will ask you to join their team. Jump on board. You’ll feel an immediate kinship with your new peers.

Pisces

Your ability to deal with the demands of your superiors makes you a popular figure at work. Some influential people will fight to get your exclusive attention. It’s important to explain the dilemma to the person at the top of the organisation. Meeting everybody’s needs won’t be possible when the busy season arrives. Communicate your needs clearly and propose several alternatives. That way, nobody can accuse you of being uncooperative. Your work load should reflect that you have only one pair of hands.
