Are you wondering how to declutter based on your star sign? In the same way that your Zodiac sign can help you decide on the perfect pet, the stars can also assist with which areas of the home you should clean in January.

A visionary and someone ready for changes, Aquarians should focus on decluttering cupboards this January. With a love of clear, open spaces, people with this zodiac sign might find their drawers becoming a little messy over time — which is why now is the ideal time to give them a tidy.


January is the perfect time to declutter your home by tackling one space each day. According to Emily Anne Thornton from Solar Sister Tarot, Pisces should sort through photos and childhood items. Rather than getting rid of everything, use your time to organise things and give them a proper place to live.


The star sign Aries, born between March 21st and April 20th, should focus on decluttering small jobs, bags and coats in January. "Never indoors long enough to make a decision whether to keep or chuck an item. Start small – do the bedside area, then the gym clothes. You'll need to commit to a small job daily," says Inbaal Honigman.

Taurus and self-care go hand in hand. In January, they should turn their attention to organising books and skincare — especially those many bottles of unused products in the bathroom. As a Taurus craves structure, getting organised will give them a real mood boost.


After Christmas and the holiday season you may be ready for a clear out. One of the best things Geminis can do is to cancel newsletter subscriptions they no longer read. "Geminis can't bear to let any information go," says Emily. "You may have oversubscribed, so cancel the ones you don't get around to reading."


Cancerians should focus on organising their kitchenware in January. Whether it's dusty cookbooks or utensils without purpose, donate or sell anything you no longer need. The best way to make decluttering easier is doing it in stages — start with one kitchen drawer to begin with, and then work your way around the whole room.


If you're a Leo, it's time to sort through those sentimental items. "Even though regal Leos love living in stylish, uncluttered spaces, they enjoy having memories of days gone by. A box in the loft is where they belong, so get sorting," explains Inbaal.

Virgos, famous for paying attention to the smallest details, should spend January organising any receipts and letters. Emily adds: Virgos keep a log of everything, but do we really need that receipt from 2016? You're great at tax returns, however, keep it all in one place and clear it out after the year is up."


Librans are the slick, smart, charmers of the zodiac. When it comes to decluttering this month, they should focus on their wardrobe. From unworn shoes to old coats, a wardrobe clear-out will help them to get focussed. Have you started on your closet?


"Your tech drawer is overflowing and could use some sensible clutter-busting," says Inbaal. "Scorpios love the latest gadgets, so all your old earbuds, chargers and batteries are taking up much needed space."


Sagittarius are the travellers of the zodiac, with the experts explaining that they should focus on organising souvenirs and travel books. Emily adds: "Sagittarians have serious wanderlust but how about moving the books on and getting a kindle to store your travel guides."

And finally, Capricorns should put their energy into tidying up their home office. Boost your productivity levels by organising papers, filing bank statements, and putting back books neatly.
