Your Weekly Horoscopes: January 14 to 20, 2024

Turn and face the strange changes

weekly horoscopes_1_14-20_uni

We’ve arrived at a crossroads. Remember that Mercury retrograde from back in December? Well, any loose ends that are still hanging from then—ghosted dates, flaked-on emails, missing links—should get tied up this week. Overall, if it doesn’t fit into your future, there’s no room for it anymore. Aquarius season begins on the 20th, and this year our season of freaks is extra freaky. Just as the sun moves into Aquarius so does Pluto, the era-defining planet of transformation. This transit will bring great change to our social structures, technology and collective thought over the next twenty years. Notice what’s coming up for you this week as there are likely clues about what’s coming for many years to come.

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)

The last few weeks have given you a chance to set goals for the year ahead, and as we enter Aquarius season on the 20th, your focus shifts to serving your community.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

As Capricorn season wraps up and Aquarius season begins, you’re being called to share your knowledge and show up as a leader. But even with some very loud clues from the universe pointing you in the right direction, this week, you’re still feeling confused about the best path to take. Before jumping into a project, make sure you’re not living someone else’s dream.

This week’s mantra: “Clarity.”
