January marks the beginning of a brand new year! Find out what success lies in your future for 2012 in Kidzworld’s January horoscopes.
Aries (March 21-April 19):
A new year, a new beginning, that’s just what you are looking forward to. Whatever happened in the past can’t get you down. Your new lease on life shows this month, and in your favor too. Be prepared for what your charisma will grant you: new friends, and maybe new love.
Taurus (April 20-May 20):
A few people in your life have become overly dramatic, but don’t fret. This is the time to show your sensitive and diplomatic nature. Try spending one on one time with your friends and family, and remember, there are always two sides to every story. Everything will blow over by the 25th.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20):
2012 is starting off great for you, but in the midst of all your successes, you’re forgetting about the people who were there for you when you needed it most. Be wary of the fast friends you make, while leaving the old ones behind. Call that friend you’ve been thinking about. They’re just what you need right now to bring you back down to earth.
Cancer (June 21-July 22):
With the holidays behind you, you’re inspired to make a real difference this year. Take the cheer you felt during the last few weeks and use it to fuel a new project. Why not see it you can start a local organization so the holiday spirit can live on. Don’t forget to spread the love with your friends and family.
Leo (July 23-August 22):
You can’t help but feel anxious about how fast the year is passing, so it’s time to do the things you’ve always wanted to. Hit up the library for some great travel books or language kits. Look into possible trips abroad, the right opportunity is closer than you think. There’s a whole world out there, and you can’t wait to see it.
Virgo (August 23-September 22):
You’re thinking a lot about the future these days, which is what makes you a great organizer. With a new year, you can start fresh and make all the plans you want for a successful year. Steer clear of toxic people who want to get you down. You know what you’re doing, trust yourself.
Libra (September 23-October 22):
Your year starts rocky when you find yourself in between two people, and both want you to make a choice. Be the bigger person and don’t play into their games. Keep your sunny nature going and eventually they’ll see the bigger picture. This month would be a good time to take a small trip to get back in touch with what matters to you.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21):
January is the month to get ahead, academically or professionally. A new opportunity is on the horizon and you want to make sure you have everything you need to be the first choice. Do what you need to do - make lists, color coordinate your life - in the end it all pays off. Look to your closest friends for added encouragement.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21):
Even if you didn’t end up with who you wanted on NYE, don’t let that dampen your fresh start for 2012. Show the world what a catch you are, and focus on learning a new skill. You’re an ambitious person, one who will end on top. Don’t be shy to prove to yourself and to anyone else who you can really be.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19):
After the excitement of the holidays, you are ready to just take it easy. Don’t relax too much, and risk missing out on social occasions, like a surprise birthday! Choose a goal for the New Year and stick with it. It pays off in a month’s time, and the rewards are more than you expected.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18):
With the start of a new year, it’s important to reflect on the past. Be aware of any mistakes you make in 2011, and try not to make them again. Write a list of all the things you’d like to accomplish in 2012, and start living your life. Your go-getter attitude makes you new friends all month.
Pisces (February 19-March 20):
Always indecisive, you’ve done your best to start the New Year off right. It all pays off when an unexpected surprise occurs early January that really gets you going in the right direction. Keep your head up and maybe you’ll start to see a change in your luck sooner rather than later.

Uh okay, so I feel kind of stupid writing this here but I have nowhere else to go to about this. (I'm sorry if this is long).
I just really need help with my life as a whole.
Basically, I have extremely bad anxiety. It's gotten to the point where I cannot speak. At all. Every time I try to speak, I can never manage more than a few words before I clam up and start to cry. It feels like my IQ drops whenever someone tries to converse with me.
I can't go into public either. The last time I did, my back and palms started sweating, my mouth went dry and I couldn't look up from the floor. And this wasn't even to a party or something, this was just the shopping centre.
My mood is also extremely low. I feel both emotionally and physically drained which makes it hard to function sometimes. Some days I don't even have the motivation to get out of bed. I am sad 24/7. It is the most awful feeling in the world. Nothing interests me any more and I am so close to crying all the time, I dont know what to do. Sometimes I feel like dying, but death is my biggest fear so I'm not sure if I could be considered suicidal. I am not sure if it is depression because I don't have access to a doctor who can check. More than anything, though, I just want to stop being sad
My parents seem to take all of this personally for some reason. They think I am purposely being rude or ignoring them. This is not true, obviously. But I can't tell them that because, like I said, I can barely speak. They keep trying to get me help for THE WRONG THINGS and haven't even thought of getting me help for anxiety. It was the therapist who first suggested that I should get help for anxiety and low mood but my parents still won't even think about getting me help for that and keep trying the wrong things.
It doesn't help that my mother barely cares about me very much at all. I'm really sorry but this bit is gonna sound like I am whining. But put basically, I have no clothes, no education (she pulled me out of school 2 years ago), and am stuck in what is basically isolation.
I have asked her multiple times for clothes but she never buys me any and continues to buy tons for herself. (Or at least tried to when I could speak a bit better, haha, I haven't done since my anxiety got worse). But this means I have to about in the same un-ironed and sometimes unwashed outfit every day and it's gross, really.
And since I cannot go to school anymore I have absolutely no friends. None. I do not even have friends online anymore. This makes my mood even worse and I am so ######## lonely. I tried making online friends for a while but I couldn't and since then my laptop broke (I am having to use the mobile site rn) so it's near impossible to make friends anymore.
And on the topic of school, I have not had any sort of education in the 2 years I have been out of school. I do not even have a tutor. It's awful, and I would be going into Year 10 next year so I really need education soon since I only have two years left. :/ I feel dumb because of this since I have not learnt to do anything above a Year 7 level.
I just don't know what to do anymore!! I really just want to fall asleep and sleep for however long it takes for me to wake up to a better period in my life.
TL;DR: I am not at the best point in my life right now and my anxiety and mood only keep getting worse and I'm not sure what to do. :(

Definite red flag; talk about it with him/her/them. other signs, include: -being doted and adored one day, and the next being pushed away and ignored, -you're afraid of your partner -they obsess over and call/text you constantly -you may find you've lost your confidence -many ups and downs in the relationship, constant roller coaster -you aren't yourself. you change and adapt for them, drop hobbies if they're not into them, etc. -something tells you you cant trust them again, there are many resources out there if you need to talk. never be afraid to speak about it to someone- a family member, a teacher, a close friend, the police, a guidance counselor, etc.
I bolded that one part. The whole thread is great. And that one is a sign. But remember people with mental illness may also show signs like this to. If they have a good they they may spoil you and love you, and then the next day they're having a bad one. So they might push you away.
They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day.
I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there.
