We’re now in Mercury retrograde! We’ll be in this state until February 3 with a shadow week lingering afterwards. On Jan. 17, we will experience a full moon in Cancer, and it will oppose Pluto in Capricorn. The week will start off with an intensity, with the energy redirected towards themes of home, roots, or care.
This week also marks the start of Aquarius season! Wherever Aquarius is found in your natal chart will be impacted by the zodiac’s ingress.
Below are this week’s horoscopes. When reading your horoscope, read your rising sign first and then read for your sun sign.
Until next week!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Home will be top of mind for you this week, Capricorn. You may have outgrown your current space or are feeling homesick for a particular person or feeling that feels like home to you. Ask yourself what’s standing in the way of getting what you need.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): This week marks the start of your season, and it will be a good week to figure out where you stand professionally. Button up if you need to but also dedicate time to outlining what emotionally (and financially) fulfills you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar 20): Jupiter’s transit in your house is amplifying your biggest dreams and wishes. This makes it easy to get lost in the endless possibilities you play out in your head but in order to really tap into what this transit means for you; you have to act in real life. Midweek you’ll have the courage so take advantage of the moment!
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19): You’ll have your moment to shine midweek when the Moon moves into Leo. You’ll speak up more quickly (not that you struggle there) but this may get you in hot water if you are too blunt. Give yourself a few seconds before you answer. This is also a suitable time to toot your own horn if you have the evidence to back it up.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20): You’ll be surrounded by erratic nervous energy midweek when the transit Leo moon squares transit Uranus and transit Uranus squares Mercury and Saturn in Aquarius. You will be pushed and pulled emotionally and mentally so tap into your strength reserves if you need to and remember this too shall pass.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20): The harshness of Capricorn season brought too much for you to consider but midweek, the sun will move into Aquarius a sign that is more forgiving to you. Think of ways in which you can improve your life by helping others and don’t be afraid to keep certain ideas to yourself while you work out how to bring them to life.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22): The full moon in Cancer that began the week highlighted your sense of home, safety, and self. Meanwhile, the Moon’s ingress into Virgo later this week is going to exacerbate your sense of duty and service to others. Don’t become a doormat. You don’t have to say yes to everything.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22): Emotionally, you will delight while the moon travels through Leo but once it moves into Virgo, you will settle into a more detached sense of relating. The sun moving into Aquarius will also force you to deal with issues you have been ignoring or hoping would resolve themselves. But alas, you are the one that has to do the work so get to it.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept. 22): Your emotional, physical, and material state of mind will feel carefree as the Moon in Virgo beautifully trines Venus in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. Yours will be a week full of exciting thoughts, new desires, and the emotional maturity to see you through!
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): This week you’ll have a bit of a battle to face as the moon moves into Libra forming squares to Venus in Capricorn and Mars in Sagittarius. Not everything will feel comfortable to you because you like harmony, but your lesson here is to deal with discomfort outwardly and proactively.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): The full moon in Cancer will provide an emotional safe haven for you dear Scorpio, but as the moon moves into Leo, it will bring tension as it opposes Saturn in Aquarius. And if that isn’t enough, both the Leo moon and Saturn will square Uranus in Taurus. Your normal evocative self will feel emotionally erratic but restricted. Your feelings will have nowhere to go it seems. Make sure you don’t blow up all at once! If you can leak your feelings out throughout the day so, but whatever you do, don’t hold everything in.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22- Dec. 21): You don’t like being hemmed in, which is why the full moon in Cancer will feel so heavy to you. Moon in Leo will bring inspirational ideas your way, but what will really get you going is the opposition that will form when the moon moves into Virgo facing off with Neptune. Both of these planets will square Mars in Sagittarius. You will want to act and react, but you will also want to fantasize and daydream first. Make sure you remember to live in the present, too.
