    Your Horoscope This Week: January 15 to 21, 2023

    The week ahead brings a wave of growth our way. The sun and Pluto connect on January 18 in Capricorn, right after Mercury turns direct in Capricorn.

    This energy can create havoc in the cosmos, as Pluto wants to transform and evolve relationships and situations swiftly.

    Being that Mercury completes its retrograde less than an hour before this planetary aspect occurs, there will be an extreme amount of frenetic energy in the air as we embrace change.

    January 20 brings the onset of Aquarius season, offering us a chance to lean into our unique attributes. The new moon in Aquarius on January 21 allows us to start fresh and embrace novel ideas that will augment our lives for the better in the future. 

    Aries Sun & Aries Rising

    Finding a special interests group to link up with that represents topics that you like will be part of an ongoing quest that begins on January 21.

    The caveat is that when you find these people to connect with, you  may maintain a critical eye over them. Don’t be too hard on their opinions.

    Being open minded and able to connect with individuals is the best part of this enlightening journey. With a bit of gusto, you can assert your goals and attain your desires in the days ahead.ILLUSTRATED BY SUCHET INUTHAI

    Taurus Sun & Taurus Rising

    New opportunities based on recent achievements from your career will level you up to attain fame during January 21’s new moon in Aquarius.

    As long as you are willing to take on a new professional role and all of the challenges that come with it (as well as the good times), you can revel in the success and prosperity that comes too.

    There will be nothing that can and will stand in your way at this moment, making you feel as though the universe (and your personal contemporaries) have your back and support you for first time in a while.

    Gemini Sun & Gemini Rising

    Your words have gotten you a little tongue twisted during Mercury’s retrograde which ends on January 18.

    For the past several weeks, your stance on matters has been wavering, as you’re unsure about what side to pick.

    The good news is that the 18th delivers a powerful punch of insight and knowledge when the sun and Pluto unite in the intuitive sector of your chart, which helps you uncover information.

    Now, you rally with your friends over situations that you fully believe in. If you’re not in the midst of forming a romantic prospect, use this energy to partner up. ILLUSTRATED BY SUCHET INUTHAI

    Cancer Sun & Cancer Rising

    Don’t let anyone emotionally blackmail you. If you’ve told someone your secrets in the confidence that they wouldn’t repeat any of it to another, then they should respect your privacy and boundaries as a friend would.

    It’s not fair to you to be exposed by someone you trusted when at your most vulnerable.

    If they have any damaging information on you that they  share, you’ll be able to flip the narrative so they are the ones at fault — not you. What goes around comes around without getting your hands filthy amongst all this unnecessary drama.ILLUSTRATED BY SUCHET INUTHAI

    Leo Sun & Leo Rising

    Your love life will be lit up during the Aquarius new moon on January 21, but that doesn’t necessarily equate to smooth sailing.

    Days before this lunation occurs, the sun and Pluto link up, creating inconsistency in romantic matters.

    Approximately an hour after this astrological occurrence happens on the 18th, Mercury ends its planetary moonwalk — right in the middle of the cosmic madness.

    Be aware that jealousy and feelings of inadequacy are the reasons why these issues are present. Therefore, it’s important to have an open and honest chat with your partner to work through these problems.ILLUSTRATED BY SUCHET INUTHAI

    Virgo Sun & Virgo Rising

    Although you like consistency, you may find yourself excitable on the 18th due to the unpredictability of the day.

    If there are any mundane patterns that you’re longing to break out of, January 18 offers you a chance to take a walk off the beaten path and try something new.

    This risky business may lead you to places and friendships that you haven’t visited in a while or ever before.

    The motive is to get you out of your comfort zone and to embrace all that life has to offer by the time of the new moon on January 21.ILLUSTRATED BY SUCHET INUTHAI

    Libra Sun & Libra Rising

    Mistakes from the past relationships can resurface until Mercury clears its retroshade cycle on February 7.

    The direct motion of Mercury plus the sun and Pluto conjunction could illuminate old wounds.

    Watch out for dramatic encounters on the 18th and try not to let anger affect your mood. If you must revisit old memories, think of it as a find to outgrow patterns and beliefs that don’t align with you on January 20.

    You’ll find that January 21 allows you to leave the past behind and start anew. Make the necessary changes and take the steps you need to transform.ILLUSTRATED BY SUCHET INUTHAI

    Scorpio Sun & Scorpio Rising

    Playing games on and off the field has its consequences — if you’re not careful.

    Although you’ll be tempted to make and adhere to your own rules, this could cause problems within your close friend group.

    Yes, you are tenacious and fierce (all of which are attributes that your besties adore about you). But, that doesn’t mean you get to be the boss of their lives.

    Doing so can create power struggles and arguments with those you care about. Give them some space to make their own decisions, while disconnecting from the need to control the outcome of their decisions.ILLUSTRATED BY SUCHET INUTHAI

    Sagittarius Sun & Sagittarius Rising

    The lesson of the week is to stop dimming your light to make others feel better about themselves.

    Own your awesomeness without having to sacrifice your star power. You can’t allow people to make you feel insecure based on the fact that they are projecting their issues onto you.

    Embrace your confidence on January 18. Not only does Mercury turns direct in the sector of your chart that brings you self-esteem, but the Sun and Pluto add a jolt of energy and positivity to your life that will help you thrive in the days ahead. Lean into this vibe, Sagittarius!ILLUSTRATED BY SUCHET INUTHAI

    Capricorn Sun & Capricorn Rising

    You have more power in one finger than most do in a whole fist.

    The issue is that you’re trying to embrace a peace mindset and take a calm approach to life. You can do so even if you opt to lean into your authority by investing your energy towards making minor changes (instead of transforming on a grandiose level all at once).

    As long as you use your expertise and past experiences to move forward against the roadblocks that have been holding you back, you’ll be able to crush and win at every matter you choose to take on.ILLUSTRATED BY SUCHET INUTHAI

    Aquarius Sun & Aquarius Rising

    It’s extremely important for you to stay in your lane this week, even though you may be tempted to peacock and show off or give extra unsolicited lip service during the new moon on January 21.

    So, consider taking a big step back from the current circumstances.

    The reason you’re sticking to the sidelines is because you aren’t ready to expose situations and create drama with your crew, colleagues, and family — at least not for now.

    You want the matter to unfold naturally, which will allow you to observe everything as an outsider and not someone from the inside. ILLUSTRATED BY SUCHET INUTHAI

    Pisces Sun & Pisces Rising

    Taking a stand in your peer group requires confidence, but you must do it in order to be heard.

    Defending those in need aligns naturally to your tender heart and gives you the chance to advocate for your beliefs.

    If you choose to be silent, it’ll only be a matter of time before one of your friends comes after you.

    In order to stop the hate in its tracks, you’ll have to speak up to help those who can’t speak loudly. Get on your soapbox and preach. The more potency you give to your words, the more people will listen.ILLUSTRATED BY SUCHET INUTHAI
