Your weekly horoscope is here. Hooray, the first Mercury retrograde of the year is over on Wednesday, so any social mistake is a thing of the past. This is your final week of professional development under the starry Capricorn sky, as the sun moves into humanitarian Aquarius on Friday. Just in time for the weekend, so keep it on fire; social and group oriented!
Read on to discover your weekly horoscope and see what’s in store for your zodiac sign for the week of January 15 through January 21, 2023.
Midweek, a career or image plan is ready to start. What thoughts did you have as you enter 2023 in this department? Time for you to stand up and embrace your authority? The professional version of you may be a little different in pace than how you project your personality in casual situations, and that’s okay. If it’s more effective to plan and structure and work more systematically, then go with it. After all, you can write your own rulebook. Your friendship zone lights up on Friday, continuing and reinforcing a social theme. This is the season to build your network, connect with a wide variety of people, quirky types, nerds and sci-fi, or start your own special interest group.
Rethinking the bigger picture, Taurus? Communication planet Mercury makes a reversal in your zone of expansion, travel and philosophy on Wednesday. It’s time to adjust your course unless you want the same result as last year. Clarify your purpose so that decisions and the boundaries you need to make them are easier to define. It also makes it easier to say no to options or offers that clearly don’t meet your goal. On Friday your career zone lights up for the next month, so give it focus. Here you need to wave the flag for your ambition, pitch, show up and make connections. Detachment, a group effort and an overarching rather than personal perspective will benefit. Push yourself out of your comfort zone for best results.
Rethinking an intimate relationship? Need to make a clean break, turn on the one, a past lover haunting you, or time to put some cards on the table? Mercury’s backspin in your zone of sex and intimacy suggests that some rules and boundaries need to be established or adjusted. By the middle of the week, you’ll know more clearly what and why, so have the conversation and move on. It may be time to let go of a certain way of thinking and turn your mind to something more constructive. Your international zone of expansion, philosophy and learning lights up from Friday, so connect with people from different cultures. Try a class, watch a show, or try a new ethnic cuisine for inspiration.
Mercury’s retrograde was about picking up and weaving loose threads in your relationship zone. Since it’s ending mid-week, what caught your eye in your important one-on-one? An opportunity, clarity about how to structure communication or a message from the past? Continue to rewire communications and discontinue old approaches that were not up to speed. Your zone of sex and intimacy will be in the spotlight starting Friday, so plan to stay indoors! Order takeout or cook up a feast for your love nest. Things may heat up or level up if you’re new to dating or thought you were satisfied, but no, there’s more. Enjoy a private escape with just the two of you, or a close friend, pizza and platonic bonding time.
What have you reassessed in your wellness and work zone? Mercury is ending its most recent retrograde, suggesting it’s time to make changes from Wednesday. Get a special trial pass offer for a fitness or nutrition class, or is it time for you to teach? Aquarius season starts on Friday, and since that’s your opposite sign, it’s especially relevant. Light up your zone of equal partnerships, it’s worth highlighting your partner, bestie or co-worker. Who’s showing up this month, anyone new? Schedule time for dates and try new things together. Apparently, bonds are made by sharing unique and new experiences, which keeps relationships fresh. Try it out over the weekend and see if researchers got it right.
Taking a new approach to a creative interest Virgo? Starting Wednesday, Mercury, your ruling planet, will pull out of retrograde and slowly swing back into let’s-do-it mode. Dating is also involved, so what are your new and improved rules of engagement? A dating strategy for efficiency, perhaps? Your sign is often invested in well-being and work, so you’ll be happy to know that this area is in the spotlight for the next month. Starting Friday, it’s time to favor habits and routines that boost your vitality and drop those that don’t. I suggest upgrading the technology in both departments. Lean into the power of the people with a group class or team event to bond with colleagues.
During the first two weeks of 2023, the emphasis was placed on reworking communications in your domestic sphere, as Mercury was retrograde. On Wednesday, however, he swings back into gear, so you had better too. Do something with information, adjust that one thing that you know needs some work. And maybe that was your work or study corner. Good news for the lover of love; the sun illuminates your sector of self-expression and romance from Friday. Double down on a special interest, schedule lots of playdates, and leave plenty of room for spontaneity. A technology or science-based hobby might be the way to go, and if you have kids, it’s time to get them excited about science, space, and bonding instead of geeks.
Rethinking your study strategy Scorpio? Is it time to focus and build specific knowledge around a certain topic? No problem for you, because deep dives are your thing. Create a goal and strategy for the year around a subject you want to master. Duty to a sibling may include speaking on their behalf or acting for them; Wednesday you know. It looks sunny at home, as your home zone is lit up from Friday. Anything homey and snuggly can entail an extension of the extended family, so welcome a unique approach rather than your usual private style with locks on all doors.
Update your approach to finances as Mercury, the communications planet, flips out of its retrograde midweek. Do you now know what irritated you, or did that inspire you? Since your sign responds best to inspiration, take a positive reframe. Other people build houses while you accept fees that don’t cover your own material dreams, let alone provide security. It may be worth taking the long term or an entirely new approach if you want things to change. By Wednesday you will be clearer and open to seriously exploring or initiating options. Get out and about in your own environment. There are discoveries to be made and coffee dates to plan. It’s good for your vitality and joie de vivre so mix it socially.
This is the last week of your solar season, so make the most of it and do what you do best. Determine a strategy so that you can achieve goals throughout the year. Midway through the week, Mercury’s retrograde ends, all the more reason to keep those plans in place. Running back in your sign since December 29, there may have been a few false starts and crossed wires into the new year. So think about what conspired to persuade you to review and redirect. The weekend heralds a social change, so things get lighter from here. Your financial zone’s affairs are highlighted, so it’s time to budget. Why not look ahead over the year and then set goals on inbound and outbound. Align with your values and strengths for best results.
Happy Birthday Aquarius! Your solar season officially starts on Friday, so gather your team and organize a social weekend. Put together an eclectic mix of people, because the planet of love and friendship is also in your sign. This is one of the best times to cross-pollinate people from different parts of your life and meet new and exciting people. Fresh ideas and conversations fill your sails and propel you forward. Live your best life Aquarius! Midweek Mercury turns retrograde and follows the path it went through in your Zen zone. What is the best way to tap into your intuitive side in the future? Are you open to the symbols and language of your subconscious mind and dreams? Try keeping a dream journal to exercise that capacity.
Midweek Mercury retrograde finally pulls out of its most recent retrograde in your zone of friendship. Who has returned from the past, distanced themselves or improved your friendship status? Have you decided to join or leave a membership or organization? Or start one? Re-route with the information you have. A breath of fresh air will blow on Friday as the Aquarius season begins. This air sign is aloof and intellectual, so water types can feel somewhat out in the cold. If so, close the gap by initiating connections and bonding. Illuminate your dream zone and the collective, take time to hibernate and enjoy solitude. You are better able to pick up on the subtle information that is coming in now.
