Weekly Horoscope January 21 to January 27
Your horoscope for the week of January 21 to January 27, 2024, is here, and there's a lot going on in the stars all at once.
On January 20, 2024, Pluto entered Aquarius, initiating a cosmic chain reaction that will have an impact on our lives over the next two decades. However, these generational transits take a long time to settle, and it is hard to predict how things will unfold in the coming months. On January 23, Venus will move into Capricorn, reminding us that achieving the things we care about takes commitment, dedication, and passion. It is time to focus our resources and time on what brings us the most satisfaction. This may involve rejecting projects that don't add value or being more realistic about our frivolous spending or dating habits. Venus in Capricorn may not feel like the most romantic transit, but the foundations we lay during this period will help us enjoy the fruits of our labor later on.
On January 25, the first full moon of the year will be visible in the night sky as it enters Leo. A full moon occurs when the sun and moon oppose each other and cause tension between our hearts and our minds. This full moon is an opportunity for us to put our egos aside and focus on what needs to change. If you have been holding onto a situation, job, or relationship that has been causing harm, now is the time to recognize when it's time to let go. For others, you may have already made that decision and are now searching for a new calling. Take a risk – even if you don't know where it will lead. Sometimes the most fulfilling journeys in our lives are the ones that start without a clear destination in mind.
On January 26, Uranus will go direct, marking the beginning of a period called "all planets direct" in astrology. During this time, there are no retrograde planets in the sky, which means that all of the planets in astrology will operate as expected, making their energy flow more predictable and easier to work with. This period will last from the end of January until April 1, 2024, allowing us to take advantage of the momentum provided by all the planets moving together in motion. To prepare, you can use the full moon in Leo to reflect on what changes you need to make to find true happiness this year.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This week presents a great opportunity for you to explore how to generate resources and bring success into your life, Gemini. This requires a deep reflection on your relationship with money and asking yourself the tough questions about why you do what you do. Consider if maybe you're meant to use your skills in a community-based or outreach role where your quick thinking and bright mind can bring people together. However, to make this change, you need to learn to view money as a resource that you can harness, rather than something that has power over you. Read your monthly horoscope here.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You're so used to putting other people first in your relationships that you've forgotten where your true power lies, Cancer. With the first full moon of the year setting up in your sphere of personal values, you're shedding this persona of meekness in favor of stepping into your proper authority. It's time to face the feuds head-on to solidify your position as someone worthy of respect and admiration. Expect some relationships to buckle while others fortify under the strength of this new era.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Pluto in Aquarius is your upgrade to a new life of luxury and excellence, and your creative spirit is leading the way. For the longest time, you’ve had a fire within you that was too big to contain. Now, with the full moon in Leo this week, you can break ground in a new era of innovation. The more you share your ideas and put yourself out there without the fear of being cringe, the more the universe will respond in kind. The most important thing to know about this week for you is not to get too affixed to anything that comes your way. Allow things to flow in and out of your life easily and without attachment— everything meant for you will be yours. Read your monthly horoscope here.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You've been living in a season of servitude for longer than you'd like, Virgo. And while it's given you a lot of humility to embrace your gifts truly, a star has to shine. You're shifting away from using your daily time to support the lives of others and favor investing in your dreams. This could be as small as picking up a side job to get out of the house or reinvesting in a workout routine or hobby that helps you feel centered. Starting with a small act of self-care can lead to something beyond your wildest dreams. However, don't let that be your main motivation. Choose something that naturally aligns with your desires and the universe will help you make it a reality. Read your monthly horoscope here.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct 22)
Your constant need to be liked by everyone has held you back for the last time, Libra. No matter how carefully you play by the rules, there will always be someone more ambitious and heartless than you who will do anything to succeed. Pluto in Aquarius signifies a time to let go of your people-pleasing mentality and embrace a new philosophy. You could benefit from taking a job outside your current field, returning to school to deepen your knowledge about your passion, or moving to another country to broaden your perspective on life. Sometimes, when the scales get too heavy to balance, you have to let everything topple to start over with a clear vision. Read your monthly horoscope here.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
It's time to shed your introverted side, Scorpio. Whether you like it or not, the first full moon of the year will set you up to seize control of your destiny. During Pluto's transit through Capricorn, you learned the rules for success, making you the perfect person to expose what doesn't work. With Pluto's movement into Aquarius, you'll be encouraged to seek a deeper connection with your neighbors and fellow human beings, which may even lead you to uproot your current life and start fresh. While you've been taught that security comes from material possessions, you'll discover that true safety comes from the relationships you build with others. Read your monthly horoscope here.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Sagittarius, it's time to unleash your inner wild spirit. The planets are aligning in your favor this week, allowing you to make a direct impact and inspire others to do the same on a larger scale. With the full moon in Leo, the illusion around you will be shattered, and you will lead a new underground movement that favors the bold. The spirit of the messenger is under your wings, giving you the eloquence and attention needed to provide a platform for causes close to your heart. This is your moment to inspire others to follow your lead. Seize the opportunity and make it count. Read your monthly horoscope here.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Everything you know about how to succeed and do well in life is about to change, Capricorn; and Pluto’s transit through Aquarius will challenge your ability to be flexible. The skills and coping mechanisms that you defaulted to when things felt uncertain before will no longer serve you, sparking a profound spiritual journey that will help soften your philosophy of self. Your instincts will tell you to cling to control wherever you can, only for those things to crumble between your fingers. Release attachment and get to the heart of what you want for yourself for the rest of this lifetime. Read your monthly horoscope here.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
This week is all about you, Aquarius, but more importantly, how you see yourself standing out amongst the crowd. For a long time, you felt that contrarian viewpoints were a hindrance to you and that they held you back from success. The truth is, they were, and now, with Pluto moving into Aquarius, that story is set to change. All the cracks in the foundation you’ve seen years before will crumble, leaving everyone in a pile of rubble. Because you’re a sign who can see innovation in destruction, this is your chance to rise to the top as a voice of reason to help reshape the future. Your stance as an outsider will become your asset over the next two decades, and you might find more people like you out there than you ever thought before. Read your monthly horoscope here.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This week, the full moon in Leo presents an opportunity for you to reassess your allegiances and relationships, Pisces. You may have felt the pressure to conform for a long time, but now you can chart your own course, regardless of whether others follow. Remember, you don't need to prove your worth to anyone to exist. You can explore who you are and what you want. It's natural to believe that everything you know is all there is to know, but taking a chance on yourself and stepping away from the familiar can lead to new adventures you never dreamed were possible.
