This week begins with an industrious new moon in Capricorn on January 2nd. It’s a great day to take ourselves seriously, to set intentions, and, of course, to invoke the over-the-top work ethic of super serious Capricorn actor Jeremy Strong (aka Kendall Roy on Succession). Capricorns always play the long game. At the same time, conversations are about to get a lot weirder as communication planet Mercury enters eccentric Aquarius on the same day. Never one to waste words, Mercury in Aquarius only speaks up when there’s actually something to say.
Then on the 8th, Venus meets the sun, making this week the halfway point of the love planet’s retrograde. If relationship woes have been taking over your life since December 19th, this could bring an “a-ha!” moment that leads to a breakthrough or a breakup. You don’t have to push, whatever’s ready to come to the surface will do so without your help.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)
