AriesYou’re in great shape to connect with your ambitions now, dear Aries, and as you do, you’re likely to enjoy increased influence and support. You’re ready to make empowering changes to your intimate life, work, health, habits, routines, or shared finances. Today brings an extra dose of enthusiasm and a positive outlook. Also today, Mercury moves into your sector of responsibility, career, and reputation, where it will influence until February 5th. More frequently than usual, your mind is on your goals and prospects during this cycle. You are more aware of how you’re coming across, and others are more interested in what you say. Mercury was in this area of your solar chart recently–from December 1st to 23rd–but then retreated due to a retrograde cycle. As you advance, you’ll gain momentum for ideas and plans that were delayed last month. You get to fill in the details for long-term goals and plans in the weeks ahead.
TaurusYou can be motivated to take steps to better yourself this week, dear Taurus, and driving this ambition is the desire for happier or more suitable relationship goals and needs. You’re also driven to find more satisfying ways to express yourself uniquely or creatively. Your appeal is both subtle and strong. Energy with you today is warm and positive. You’re attracting the right kind of situations and people to you. Mercury returns to your solar ninth house of spirit and adventure today, where it will influence until February 5th. This transit began December 1st to 23rd but wasn’t completed due to a retrograde backup. Now, you’re ready to move forward. In the weeks ahead, thinking in broad terms helps you see the bigger picture. You’ll be expanding your mind and your interests. Sharing your ideas and beliefs with enthusiasm can also figure strongly. You seek to understand your life and the world around you. It’s a wonderful cycle for an optimistic frame of mind.
GeminiYou’re ready to do things a little differently today, dear Gemini, if only for some emotional refreshment. Working on the work-home connection or renovating your routines in satisfying, productive, and healthy ways can be in focus. With the Sun and Venus parallel today, there can be important epiphanies about your relationships or nice progress with a special person in your life. There can be a feeling of hopefulness about a matter today that you haven’t felt for some time. This is a time for smoothing over relations. It’s not about glossing over problem areas, but it’s not a time for raw emoting, either. Today is better for showing you care with warm gestures. Keep things light and friendly for the best results now. Mercury heads into your intimacy sector today, where it will visit until February 5th. Mercury spent time in this area of your solar chart recently (from December 1st to 23rd) but then retreated due to a retrograde backup.

This cycle is especially favorable for consultations, research, and analysis. You’ll likely make some valuable discoveries with money, debts, motivations, relationships, attachments, and personal psychology.
CancerA budding romance or a satisfying pursuit can figure strongly this week, dear Cancer. It’s a generally good time to reach out and connect with others more meaningfully. As well, your studies and personal interests can be enriching. Strong energy is with you for peace-making and socializing today, especially on the job or while you pursue health or daily routines. You’re finding more joy in your work, chores, dedication, and health pursuits. It could be you see the more pleasing aspects of these things, or someone is helping to make things seem much better. You can help this energy by bringing more harmony, beauty, or gracefulness to your daily routines. Mercury moves back into your partnership sector today for a transit that’s active until February 5th. This transit occurred recently (from December 1st to 23rd) but then backed up due to retrograde motion. Now and in the weeks ahead, conversations that were left unfinished may resume, or information that eluded you last month can emerge. It can be a fine time to open the airwaves with someone special. People in your life can help you get in better touch with your ideas since conversations with others jumpstart your thinking processes. Someone may encourage you to think or express yourself more fully.
LeoYou are motivated to make improvements related to sharing yourself with others more spontaneously, dear Leo, and you’re also able to make more time in your life for doing what you love. It’s an excellent time to apply yourself to artistic pursuits or hobbies or discover a new passion. You’re chattier than usual today, and while you may not be incredibly focused, you see more options than usual, which opens up possibilities. Mercury returns to your sector of work and health today, where it will visit until February 5th. Mercury spent time here from December 1st to 23rd but backtracked due to a retrograde cycle. As such, plans or projects that began last month and faced delays, perhaps due to missing information, begin to move forward or gain momentum. This cycle is superb for attention to detail. It’s a favorable period for getting work done, leading to a more definite feeling of being in charge of your life. Examining work projects and relationships can be appropriate now.
VirgoMost appealing now is the chance to sort out your life in small but critical ways, dear Virgo. Your personality comes through beautifully in whatever personal interest or project you’re involved with now. Today is strong for bringing more harmony and enjoyment to your domestic world. Channeling your energies into a project around the home that will make life easier can be especially good for you now, especially if it’s something creative and interesting. There can be a lot of hopefulness with you today, and family affairs can be the motivator. Your ability to smooth over rough edges can win the day. Mercury heads back into your creative solar fifth house today, where it will visit until February 5th. Mercury was just recently in this sector (from December 1st to 23rd) but couldn’t complete its transit due to a retrograde backup. In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to move fun projects and pursuits forward. You’ll have more confidence in sharing your ideas and thoughts with others, and you may stand out for your unique viewpoint or intelligence. Thoughts might often turn to romance, children, and entertainment during this cycle, and you’re inclined to have a little extra fun with your communications.
LibraDeveloping your talents can be satisfying and empowering now, dear Libra. You approach your earnings or belongings more positively, bringing in different results. Turning a financial matter around can be a relief. You can be pleasantly busy most of the day. Relationships are particularly enjoyable and productive right now, and agreements work out well. You could even inspire someone. There can be a lot of talk about, or much thought given to, relationships right now. Mercury moves back into your sector of home and family today, where it will visit until February 5th. Mercury spent some time here recently (from December 1st to 23rd) but then backed up due to a retrograde and hasn’t had a chance to complete its transit until now. As you advance, you might resume conversations and projects or plans with family and those related to house and home. Projects might gain momentum now. It’s an excellent time for deep thinking and renewing old methods.
ScorpioYou can feel stronger through your ability to establish your independence, dear Scorpio, but it’s also a fine time to explore your desires to connect with like-minded people. Your influence and happiness with friends, groups, or networks are in focus. Today’s Sun-Venus parallel encourages a calm approach to your world. It also boosts your magnetism. Mercury heads back into your sector of communication today, where it will visit until February 5th. Mercury spent time here from December 1st to 23rd, but then backtracked when it turned retrograde. Now and in the week ahead, projects you left unfinished may resume. Information that you needed to move forward arrives, and you have more time to explore personal interests that you first toyed with back then. This transit often creates a natural flow of learning, connecting, and communicating.
SagittariusThis is a time for doing something extra for yourself, dear Sagittarius, although there is a temptation to overindulge. You have more impact than usual on a personal level today–your most charming and appealing traits are in the spotlight, and you may be trying to impress or come over exceptionally well. There is a real demand for the qualities that you are naturally projecting. You could be feeling amorous and rather desirous as well. It can be a good time for gifts and special indulgences. Mercury leaves your sign and enters your solar second house today, where it will transit until February 5th. Mercury spent December 1st to December 23rd in this sector but later turned retrograde and retreated into your sign. As you advance, you approach your finances from a new, refreshed perspective. You might pad your income through communications, networking, sharing, and word of mouth. Instead, it’s a time to develop strong money-making ideas or pay more attention to understanding your current resources and assets. It’s a good time to get down to brass tacks planning and dealing with your practical affairs.
CapricornPeople are curious about you and intrigued by you now, dear Capricorn, with the Sun in your sign parallel Venus in your private sector. A bit of mystery becomes you! It’s a strong day for seeking harmony and employing diplomacy. You might arrive at peaceful solutions to recent problems in the process. There may be recognition or reward for past actions, a pleasant surprise from the past, or good feelings and happiness experienced in your inner or private world today. Mercury enters your sign today and will stay in Capricorn until February 5th. You hosted this planet of communications very recently–from December 1st to 23rd–but then it turned retrograde and retreated into your privacy sector. As such, you had some mulling over, thinking twice, and processing to do. As you advance, you’re well-positioned to express yourself, make sharper decisions, and delight others with your communications. You’ll feel a nice burst of mental energy, and projects that didn’t gain momentum last month begin to move forward.
AquariusToday’s energies are rather pleasantly non-ambitious, dear Aquarius, and taking a break from demanding situations makes the most sense now. Still, a Sun-Venus connection can help improve your relationships and personal appeal. You’re seeking harmony and will do what you can to keep things on an even keel. Relationships can benefit from a light touch. Collaboration is more comfortable than usual. Mercury moves into your privacy sector today. It recently visited this area of your solar chart (from December 1st to 23rd), but, while retrograde, it returned to your social sector. From now until February 5th, you’ll review projects, work behind the scenes, and enjoy a break from overthinking. You’re looking at life a little differently and picking up information you’ve missed in the past, perhaps while you were too busy to notice. From February 5th forward, you’ll be in a more lucid state of mind for making quick decisions and beginning new projects once Mercury enters your sign. Until then, take the time to think things through. Wrapping up projects can figure strongly now.
PiscesYou’re bringing more warmth to your image or career, and this can be especially notable today, dear Pisces. You may be receiving more attention and admiration on professional or public levels as well as with friends, and it feels wonderful to be appreciated for your finer qualities, performance, or commitment. You can rather easily put yourself in a favorable light, and business can benefit as a result. This is a time when efforts to beautify, embellish, and please are in favor. Cooperation comes easily now. Mercury moves into your social sector for a visit that will last until February 5th. It visited this area of your solar chart very recently–from December 1st to 23rd–before it went on a retrograde backup. With the planet of communication here, you’re in a strong position for networking in the weeks ahead. The pursuits you started last month now gain momentum, and you’re finding the right information for moving new initiatives forward. This cycle encourages a more relaxed rapport with associates, friends, and networks. It’s also an active period for innovative and enterprising thinking.
