Your Weekly Horoscopes Are Here! January 10th – January 17th

See what's in store! ✨
If you celebrate your birthday this week:
 
Your Year Ahead
 
2020 finds you taking a chisel to long-held beliefs that no longer serve a purpose. Your attention now shifts away from the inner world and towards the outer.  Saturn encourages new studies; Uranus shakes up your love life, while the Sun pushes for material and professional gain.  Should emotional issues chip away at your relationships, new ground rules will need to be applied.  Unfortunately, this may mean that some ties are broken.  Either way, it’s a year when you feel more empowered by whatever decisions you make.  After all, they’ll be your own.  Just remember, though, to step off the treadmill every now and then.   Take the occasional breather.
 
 
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day:  Monday 13th
 
It could be difficult to differentiate between truth and fiction this week.  If asked to referee family feuds, step away.  You’ve more pressing issues to address. In all of this, take special care of yourself.  Despite feeling energetic, it wouldn’t hurt to make a point of observing good health and safety precautions.  Prevention’s always better than cure.
 
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day:  Sunday 12th
 
If your love life has fallen short of exhilarating, this week finds you searching for new ways to have fun.  You’re impassioned, and impatient.  Licentious feelings run high and openly – so unlike you, Taurus.  Still, don’t feel guilty about sudden attractions or wandering thoughts.  We all have the occasional itch to scratch.
 
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:  Saturday 11th
 
You’re craving reassurance and sympathy.  The only problem is that you keep pushing friends and family away.  What’s stopping you from being truly honest with yourself, or others?  It’s time to drop the defences, Gemini.  Be brave enough to discuss troublesome issues.  More importantly, tell the truth.
 
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day:  Tuesday 14th
 
Clutter can drain Cancer energy.  When you walk into a room or a building, you have an instant reaction to it.  The space can agitate or calm you.  So stroll through your home or office, and notice how you feel.  Mess can be a huge obstacle to the natural flow of energy and energy is something you’ve lately lacked.  This week, clear the trash.  
 
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day:  Friday 10th
 

You’re probably still confused, not quite certain whether recent events were a pleasant dream, a nightmare or just fate.  Confronted by surprise or suspicion, this week forces you to explore new dimensions of your talents, inner truths and affections.  Out of this intense transformation you will emerge, in many ways – reborn.

Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:  Thursday 16th
 
You have a reputation for conquering your competition with words.  Wry, double-edged humour is Virgo’s style. But if making light of others’ quirks, don’t expect an appreciative audience.  Sure, there are times when the world deserves ridicule, but not everyone will get the joke.  Play nice.  
 
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:  Wednesday 15th
 
If you’re asked to tend to a partner’s or family needs, don’t oblige out of guilt.  You have your own life to lead and sainthood is a tiring road to follow.  If you need some clear thinking space – perhaps a few days break might let you reflect from a distance.  The planets encourage you to spread your wings and fly – preferably somewhere quiet.
 
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:  Saturday 11th
 
Scorpios are usually resistant to change.  Not so now.  If anyone’s venturing out in search of excitement – it’s you. Trouble is, few seem willing to share your dreams.  Perhaps they’ve been witness to your less adventurous side in the past.  Get moving and show others how passionate and daring you can really be.  
 
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day:  Friday 10th
 
Short term projects catch your interest. You’re focused, but with only limited patience – which could lead to some frustrating moments.  Don’t be in such a rush, Sagittarius.  Give dreams enough busy hours to become a reality.  In matters of the heart, singles may literally bump into someone special.  Couples reignite the spark.
 
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 
Best Day:  Wednesday 15th
 
This week, socially – you’re a natural; professionally too.  The old cliche about catching more flies with honey than with vinegar springs to mind.  It’s also a great time to update your image.  If any caution is needed, it will involve finances.  Thanks to spend-happy cosmos, you suddenly want everything you see – including new playmates.  
 
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Monday 13th
 
Don’t let your talents go to waste by allowing others to hijack your hard work.  At the same time, expect a crash course in relationships, the main lesson being a realistic view towards others. Impractical hopes tend to come tumbling down when placed on too high a pedestal.  And if a particular love is unsalvageable, perhaps it’s time to go solo.
 
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:  Sunday 12th
 

This week, diversity rules.  When so enthusiastic – trying to relax would be a waste of time.  Love, friendships, business – they all fight for centre stage. The power of the word becomes inspirational, so if you have a tale to tell – start blogging!  You’re surrounded by encouragement.  It’s also a great time to let others know how much you love them.
