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.
Have Your Say!
What's your sign? Tell us in the comments section right below this story!
You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too. If you blurt it out it could be the shock.
You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive. Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with? An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react.
Good luck mate and takes your time :angel
I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...
Either way. Thanks for the advice!
If you don't think that you'll be in a safe situation (for example, your parents try to kick you out, or hurt you physically or emotionally) than you should definitely wait to tell them. I think you'll know when the time is right. We can't tell you how they'll react, but I bet you can sort of figure it out from how they feel and act about these topics.
Remember, you are not obligated to tell anybody at all. It's personal. Wait until you're for sure ready to tell them. And when you do, tell them the way in which it's easiest. Get your point across, offer resources, reassurance, and give them time.
Hey guys, so I do kinda have a personal issue, but I need to tell my family about it. Truth is, I'm not even sure how they'll even react. Very few of my friends know, only the ones I trust anyway...
I'm gay. Or at least bisexual. I kinda had a thing for girls, but that was a long time ago. I think I'm fully gay. I have a very supportive boyfriend, who loves me with all his heart. But that's not what it's about; it's actually coming out to my family, whom I know some of them are quite homophobic. Homophobia runs in my family. Sorta...
It makes my stomach turn when I think about it. I sometimes look into the mirror, look at myself and think if my conscience suddenly made me decide I was gay, or if I was born with it. Science tells us that we are born that way, due to lack of man chemicals entering a boys brain when in development.
I feel like I've chosen it (even though I know deep inside I haven't) to be gay, probably because of my family almost forcing me into getting a girlfriend and such. I come from a Catholic family, to make things even worse. I'm like the only practising person in my family, but somehow I feel that they'll use my Faith against me if I come out.
So, should I just wait until I'm older? How do I know when the time is right? How will they even react? How should I even say it?
