Your Weekly Horoscopes Are Here! January 17th – January 25th

Look out, Pisces!
If you celebrate your birthday this week:
Your Year Ahead
If you find yourself standing at a crossroads and wondering why you’ve never taken that deviation to the left, now’s your chance.  This year, gambles can be transformed into triumphs. Jupiter, in particular, will draw out your spirit of adventure; with you very keen to follow that proverbial yellow brick road.  Just don’t trust others so readily, or so often.  Cosmic shenanigans also takes place in your love sector. New relationships run hot and dying embers may be reignited.  After July, though, make sure you don’t walk into anyone else’s psychological cesspool.  Thankfully, you’re intuitive enough to recognise any early warning signs.  If necessary, hatch an escape plan.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day:  Monday 20th
The planets push for more honesty at home.  If relationships feel strained, talk problems through.  For others, the week attempts to sort out family feuds.  Perhaps, too, painful remnants of childhood demand resolution.  Saturn also delivers a busy work schedule.  There may be little rest right now, but much should be achieved.
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day:  Friday 17th
You need closure which, under normal circumstances may cause tension – but now feels welcoming.  Maybe it’s because you’re more forgiving. Maybe it’s because others are sincerely sorry.  Whatever the case, increased happiness spills over into love and friendship.   Persuasive planetary forces also inspire career confidence.
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:  Sunday 19th
Normally, you have no problem letting others know when they have overstepped the mark. Someone’s almost marched into your territory, and somehow – you’ve let this happen. Don’t panic, and don’t lose your temper.  Calmly address the matter, and reclaim your own dominion.  Wannabe opponents will soon back off.  
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day:  Saturday 18th
A look at recent expenditure will probably unveil a record of debt.   Clearing the bills is an obvious move – but that’s more easily said than done.  Love-wise, the week could bring an almost idyllic companion – deliciously sensuous and sensitive.  Coupled Cancerians, too, are more tender towards a partner’s needs, and sharing seems effortless.  
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day:  Wednesday 22nd
Don’t stand back and let life pass you by.  Leo is a fire sign, meaning you have more drive and ambition than most, so this week – no more excuses about getting back into the game.  I know you’ve been a tad withdrawn lately, but it is time to rejoin life.  Just remember:  some things matter, and others don’t.  Use your energy wisely.  
Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:  Tuesday 21st
There’s a confident energy to the week, and very little will escape your attention.  If teamwork’s required, there’s no better time for presenting new ideas.  Even so, timing is important.  Don’t force issues until all signals say go – some things are worth the wait.  Late week brings another kind of joy.   The romantic kind.  
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:  Wednesday 22nd
The Libran ideal is a world of unencumbered fun and fortune.  And yet somehow the best of us can become entangled in life’s complex web.  Success could be yours this week, but it may be at another’s expense.  If this makes you feel uncomfortable, allow other struggling souls some leeway.  The favour will definitely be returned.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:  Monday 20th
A friend or family member confronts you with a hard luck story, but it’s nothing you haven’t heard before.  This week, determination comes into play as you simply refuse to be seen as an endless source of funding.  Gently suggest that they stand on their own financial feet.  You’ll be amazed at what such tough love can do.  
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day:  Thursday 23rd
Devote more time to you, Sagittarius.  It’s busy at work, but remember to look after yourself as well.  Whatever happens, you have little trouble winning over a new audience.  Being in the right place and making the right contacts works in your favour – but if the pressure gets you down, consider a change.  Out with the old, in with the new.  
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 
Best Day:  Friday 17th
This week brings surprises.  For starters, romance rules.  Throw in a cash bonus for good measure, and it seems you’re in for some delightful treats.  This is what happens when the planets applaud you.  Even if there’s a conflict of interests between business and pleasure, simply follow your instincts.  They’re pretty dependable right now.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Thursday 23rd
Aquarians are a law unto themselves.  So when this week offers something different, you’re keen to give it a go.  Other people’s schemes, no matter how tempting, are ignored as you become more determined than ever to follow your own path. But take some time to relax too.  Pace yourself.  A little rest does wonders for stamina.  
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:  Saturday 18th
Although times have been tough, you have survived – so give yourself a congratulatory pat on the back. Your confidence has grown, and your life priorities – changed.  Some feel like they’re a different person and, on some levels, you are.  Sensitivities are heightened, not only to what you consider beautiful and inspiring but also to the new.
