Your horoscopes for the week 23 January to 29 January 2017
Aries – March 21 to April 20
The New Moon urges you to find fresh ways to connect with those around you, as you contribute your considerable talents to a group, club or organization. And don’t worry if your spontaneous approach results in mistakes along the way. Impulsive Mars [your power planet] charges through your sign from Saturday until March 10. So your motto for the moment is from French writer Colette [born on February 28, 1873] “You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.”
Taurus – April 21 to May 21
When it comes to your career, don’t be complacent. Start asking some serious questions. Is it time to look for a better job or change vocation? Are you overdue for a pay rise or promotion? Maybe you need to work smarter, rather than harder? If you resist making changes then you’ll be left behind, as the New Moon encourages you to explore fresh professional pastures. Expect some relationship stress on Friday/Saturday, when Saturn increases frustration and stymies displays of affection.
Gemini – May 22 to June 21
You’re super busy but are you actually achieving anything of substance? If you tackle tasks in regular short bursts, then you’ll gradually get things done. Courtesy of Saturn, cracks may appear in a romantic or business relationship on Friday or Saturday. Instead of pressing the panic button, look for sensible long-term solutions to current problems. Single Twins – give superficial suitors the flick. You need a partner who’ll bring stability and security into your topsy-turvy world.
Cancer – June 22 to July 23
Crabs are sentimental creatures and can spend too much time in the past. Resist the temptation to brood over love gone wrong. This week’s stars help heal your hurt feelings so you can finally let go and move on. The New Moon signals a major shift in the areas of sex or money. Perhaps a passionate new relationship or the start of an exciting financial partnership? But plenty of patience is needed on Friday and Saturday, when a close partnership goes through a tricky patch.
Leo – July 24 to August 23
Mick Jagger, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Robert de Niro, Jennifer Lopez … why are so many major entertainers [past and present] also Leos? Because they relish being the centre of attention. But this week’s New Moon encourages you to share the spotlight with someone else, whether it’s a lover, child or friend. Some love-crazy Lions will launch a new romantic relationship [or rejuvenate an old one]. Singles – look for love with a gregarious Gemini or an adventurous Aquarius.
Virgo – August 24 to September 23
Virgos love to be in tip-top condition. And, with the New Moon in your well-being zone, it’s the perfect time to start a more nutritious diet and a more challenging exercise program. If you’ve been neglecting your health, then it’s definitely the best week of the year to swap fast food for home-cooked meals; cream buns for carrot juice; and long TV sessions for power walks or gym sessions. Virgos thrive on a regular routine and a healthy lifestyle, so stop the excuses and start ASAP!
Libra – September 24 to October 23
Have fun connecting with your inner child, as you tap into the stores of creativity within. But there could be some conflict between your professional and personal relationships, as Venus and Saturn highlight your struggle to achieve ongoing balance at work and home. With Jupiter journeying through your sign, have the confidence to follow your own instincts. As birthday great Mozart declared “I pay no attention to anybody’s praise or blame. I simply follow my own feelings.”
Scorpio – October 24 to November 22
It’s a wonderful week for a domestic clean-up and de-clutter, as the New Moon highlights your home zone. Do your best to make Casa Scorpio a cocoon of calm, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy outside world. Mars charges through your work zone [from Saturday until March 10] which increases your ambitious streak, and your domineering side. Perhaps it’s time to boost your own performance, rather than telling everyone else what they should be doing?
Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21
Sagittarius is a sign of exciting extremes, big bold moves and extravagant gestures. But this week serious Saturn clips your wings, and compels you to be more balanced, careful and circumspect. Which will be difficult … but not impossible! Then impulsive Mars charges into fellow fire sign Aries [from Saturday until March 10]. Which makes you more inclined to jump to hasty conclusions about family and friends. Before you judge others, take a close and considered look at yourself.
Capricorn – December 22 to January 20
Show me the money! With this week’s New Moon stimulating your cash zone, it’s time to take stock of your financial situation and initiate some smart new strategies. And don’t forget to do an inventory of your inner wealth as well, which includes your self-esteem and core values. Remember – you are more than your job, what you earn and what you own. It’s also crunch time for a relationship on Friday or Saturday, when you may have to make a serious commitment [one way or the other].
Aquarius – January 21 to February 19
There’s a New Moon in your sign this week, so you’re searching for innovative answers to persistent problems. You’ll be twice as much fun – and twice as much trouble. You’re feeling avant-garde and adventurous, and are keen to revamp an important area of your life. But you’ll also feel restless, reckless and rebellious as you shake loved ones out of their comfort zones. Be inspired by Aquarian actress Vanessa Redgrave “Ask the right questions if you’re to find the right answers.”
Pisces – February 20 to March 20
Pisceans can procrastinate. Never more so than this week, when the New Moon energises your ‘escaping’ zone. Plus Venus, Mars and Neptune are also transiting through your sign. If you have a problem that needs to be faced [or a decision that needs to be made] then resist being distracted by other people’s agendas. And make sure contemplation is closely followed by decisive action. As birthday great Oprah Winfrey says “Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”
