The start of the new year brings about a heap of change, change in perception, in attitude and in your goals – in fact we spend most of January trying to stick to our new-found prosperity and hope for the future year. Most of the time our new year’s resolution list is the length of our arm and trying to condense all the things we hope to be and do in the near year is almost impossible. We often do some serious self-reflection before choosing our final ones, we seek advice from our friends and family, pick from a hat or even download an app all to determine how we should take on the year ahead and what is important to focus on throughout it.
However, in the wake of last year’s negativity and sometimes even its small moments of terror we have decided that this year we need some serious mojo, some serious magic to guide us, to help us get through and come out better than the year before; we decided to turn to the stars in 2018 for advice and for guidance.
