Your Weekly Horoscopes: January 7 to 13, 2024

Let’s lay some groundwork for this year

2024 has already been off to a productive start and the new moon in Capricorn on the 11th is yet another opportunity to lay some groundwork. But what you go into the week wanting may not be what you leave the week wanting. Mercury connects with Neptune on the 8th stoking the flame of some deep desires, and then the sun connects with Uranus on the 9th throwing some curveballs into the mix. What if that spontaneous decision is actually the best one?

Whatever the plan is, there’s plenty of energy to put things into motion. Mars connects with Saturn on the 9th and then Jupiter on the 12th giving depth and clarity to our actions, even if we’re feeling overwhelmed by last minute decisions. The week ends with Mercury entering Capricorn on the 13th, a shift that grounds our thoughts and communications as we move forward with the plan.

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