The energy this week: Boss bitch meets power broker, and they shake hands on a new deal. We’re in the heart of super-serious Capricorn season, but don’t look back. Look toward your inner sun, walk toward new dawn, and apply your crystal-clear mission statement. Read on to discover what’s in store for your sign during the week of January 13 through to January 19, 2020, and double down by getting to know your rising sign.
Aries | Aries rising
You’re at ground zero, the balance point between the end of a major cycle and the creative force of a new one. Shake off the dust, Aries—it’s been an endurance test, but the light is already glimmering on your horizon. If you experienced the wrecking ball of change, it’s because you wouldn’t clear the decks yourself and head in the direction you knew was calling. Nature abhors a vacuum, so be clear and conscious about what you want to fill this space, then embrace the new dawn. Career and public image are all up for reinvention. Use your mastery to next-level and set your sail for a career that can take you over the long haul. An old-school cocktail of determination, application, and dedication are well worth the effort over this period. Lock in your schedule and hit “go.”
Taurus | Taurus rising
The new dawn is all about opening your mind, getting on planes (at least metaphorically), and expanding the pegged line that defines your known universe by, oh, a quantum leap! Buckle up, and double the rate of change you experienced early last year. Keep running with the balls you’ve set in motion, and keep your sights set on your goal post. Your sign belongs to the element of earth, which is all about practicality. You need to make something tangible of your knowledge. You may need to keep leveling up in your learning, and if you can teach in any way, it will benefit you. How can you achieve this? With a blend of old-school traditional expertise, mastery, and authority—on a radical subject and or in a revolutionary way. Take your chance to build the next phase of your life.
Gemini | Gemini rising
Empire is built with the best of many participating parts. In this case, you bring yours and they’ll bring theirs. Use the finest sieve of discernment, and don’t be shy about making the cut where you have to. Vetting the person/people you consider merging with—in terms of anything from bodily fluids to talent to cold, hard cash—is the clue to building something bigger and better than you could alone. It could be raising children, or going in on a mortgage, a business, or a creative vision. You’ll only be as good as your combined worth, so due diligence, checks, and balances are essential. Overcome any awkwardness by leaning into your authority; it demonstrates that you value yourself and your contribution. And it’s a compliment to whoever passes muster. Take your time; there’s no hurry.
Cancer | Cancer rising
The happenings of your partnership zone continue as an important focal point this week. One-on-ones that have survived the tests of last year are robust and will see you through the long-term now. Thankfully, you’re more aware of your resilience and strength. This is a strong year for finding and establishing a business partner or a life partner. If there’s something—a person, a brand, or an artist—that you’re passionate about, how can you build on your relationship to mutually benefit each other? While Cancers don’t tend to like change, you have an instinct for initiating connections. Particularly if you view someone as family or if your profound care powers you for the well-being of people either in your family or for whom you’ve taken responsibility. Your stars suggest you can work this in your favor.
Leo | Leo rising
Your health is your wealth. Set yourself up by swapping out “treats” for nutritional snacks to power you through your day. Your sign’s element is fire, which represents energy—use it so you don't lose it. Where can you fit pockets of incidental exercise into your routine if your role is physically static? Get creative. Walk the stairs every hour if you’re at a desk in a building. Walk, jog, or run around the block every other hour if you’re based in your home or a low-standing building. Five to 10 minutes of stretches and simple yoga moves like the triangle pose will do more to wake you up than that third cup of coffee. The cosmos suggests mastering a health system or routine that has your back for the long haul, specifically if it combines body, mind, and spirit. Do your oms, breathe from the belly, and work toward your best physical self this year to balance your emotions and keep your mind tranquil.
Virgo | Virgo rising
Get serious about fun, Virgo. Promote your creative arts or hobby to a status deserving of how you feel about it. Your sign aims for perfection, which means next-leveling will be a no-brainer. The only obstacle may a lack of confidence; work on that or find a way to sidestep your propensity to self-doubt. An easy hack is to simply push that inner critic out on a ledge while you do your practice, promote, or invest in quality tools that support your passion. By building your abilities, you also build confidence and self-esteem—it’s a winning strategy. Speaking of love, who’s the gem on your radar? The chips have fallen; they reveal what or who you’ll be spending quality free time with. Make sure they’re as sterling as you are because they’re likely to be around for the long haul.
Libra | Libra rising
Coffee isn’t the only thing percolating at your hearth this season; a sense of permanence is too. Perhaps there’ve been some factors exiting your nest, making room for a new rhythm. That’s because your empire is in connection with your home, property, or family. Set your eye on the long-term in these areas because what you establish now will have legs. Luck is on your side all year; if you do choose to move (whether it’s buying, renting, or growing your property portfolio), this would be the time to start investigating the market. Think “bigger” and “made to last.” If you have room to expand by adding an extra area, take that into consideration. Leave room for and plan for sustained growth. If it suits, combining your home with your work—even just setting up a dedicated home office or nook—will benefit you.
Scorpio | Scorpio rising
If you’ve holed up after the party season, it’s not quite time to breathe a sigh of relief. Your approach to friendships, learning, and even some of your relationships is meeting a new dawn. Rather than working at your kitchen bench or even checking your morning messages, take yourself out for coffee and a (cinnamon) roll while you scroll (the socials). Put yourself at an intersection of people energy to pick up on the latest ideas, as well as share your own. Coworking spaces can act as melting pots for meeting and sharing; try a few different ones out. Don’t be too quick to "okay" the boomers. Sometimes the best advice often comes from experience, so be open to the wisdom of older people who have proven ideas tested in real-time reality.
Sagittarius | Sagittarius rising
Run a regular self-worth mental accounting that continues to stack your best qualities and make sure you shine. Financially, your inner money magnate has been reborn, and she’s focused on working with your highest values. Lean into natural talents you’ve worked hard to master. Consolidate what you’ve accumulated over the years, from skills and beliefs to possessions and savings—they’re resources you can bring to the table now. Your professional palate is unique to you, which is why only you can deliver; back yourself by bringing it all. It’s time to get serious about what you do for work. Make it count. Building on your resources this year will go a long way toward setting yourself up for years to come. Take yourself, as well as what you have to offer any role, seriously.
Capricorn | Capricorn rising
All eyes on you, Capricorn. It’s time to step up and captain your ship like a seasoned pro. This week bears the flavor of the rest of your life, so make it a decisive one. Of all the signs, you’ve had the most gnarly path of twists, turns, epic firsts, and a few epic fails. Things should begin to stabilize more as you aim toward a position of strength. With the changing times of a new decade—the and associated unsettled feeling a lot of people have—you’re in a unique place to represent the zeitgeist with your natural ability to direct and lead. Make sure you work through and transform anything unresolved so you can light the path with your wisdom. You’ll know by now what and where to get started; take the first steps, but only after you’ve planned and hired where you need to.
Aquarius | Aquarius rising
You’re the humanitarian of the zodiac and naturally geared toward broader social concerns, from friendships to the state of the planet. However, your empire over the next few years has its power base in the subtle realm. If you’ve been more science than seance, you may have noticed your mind opening up to the possibilities suggested by sages through the ages. Your entrepreneurial interest in designing and building systems and structures that you can eventually hand over is well-suited to this year. The key is introspection and learning to trust your inner voice as an authority. Science is catching up, so combine the two, or run your own experiments.
Pisces | Pisces rising
Every sign has a particular area of life that’s been hosting a slow-burning transformation, building up like a pressure cooker over the last year. Yours is centered around your broadest social reach and underpinned by long-held idealistic hopes and wishes. You know in your bones what you were born to contribute and give back, from friendships to society as a whole. Your project or involvement will be clear and possibly in its early stages of development already. Take it seriously, and build it to last, as what you establish now will see you through the years to come. Social impact is important to you and really sets the tone into this decade. Trust your capabilities. By combining your unique mix of experience and expertise, you develop further professionally, so don’t hold back, but don’t rush either.
