Saturday, January 27th, Leo
The haircut makes the hair slowly but vigorously regrow. Good for baking and dry cleaning. The Italian bean and pasta stew “Pasta e Fagioli” is delicious and suits the cold weather. In general, be mindful of the origin of food; cheap goods are often produced under questionable conditions and may not be healthy.

Sunday, January 28th, Virgo
Bundle up, the risk of catching a cold is slightly higher. Avoid cold drinks and heavy, fatty foods because the digestive system is more sensitive.
