VirgoYou could find that people are preoccupied with their issues as Venus changes gears today, dear Virgo.

With its station today, there can be some ambiguity. However, you’re recognizing what’s most important to you, who and what you value, and where you stand, particularly on a family or home issue that was left hanging or delayed. Comfort levels increase from today forward. Mercury is still retrograde for several days longer (until February 3rd), suggesting some backtracking.

ScorpioSome signals can cross as Venus stations and turns direct today, dear Scorpio, after six weeks of retrograde motion. Changes are in the works, and they’re strengthening ones, but the shift itself can fog things up just for now. Over the coming weeks, you’ll find more satisfaction in your projects, studies, and communications. A transportation matter that met with delays can now resume or straighten out. Some communication mix-ups or computer problems can come to a resolution, although Mercury’s retrograde that continues until February 3rd can be the source of other slowdowns. You focus less frequently on the past and more on where you’re going. Take your time for best results, particularly with Venus still slow and Mercury retrograde. Avoid situations that require judgments of value today if this is possible. Later today holds good energy for harmonizing, sharing ideas, and ironing out differences.
SagittariusVenus ends its almost six-week retrograde phase today, dear Sagittarius. Ideally, this period has helped you better understand your needs and wants. You may feel that you’re given second chances or picking up the pieces. Life seems a little easier when you know what’s in your heart. There can be some pleasant opportunities to enjoy new interests or take a fresh look at old problems in the upcoming days and weeks. Financial issues, delayed income or projects, and confusion over property can clear. Relationships tend to be more predictable. Even so, the shift today can intensify problems temporarily, or at least we perceive things this way! It’s best not to make or break commitments while this shift occurs, so be sure to take your time. Aim to think up new ways to protect, improve, or build your resources.
CapricornVenus ends its almost six-week retrograde cycle today, dear Capricorn. Because this phase occurred in your sign, it’s been a little more personal for you! While you can be cautious with your heart for a bit longer, you’ll slowly get back on track in the areas of pleasure, comfort, and love. In the coming weeks, you’ll get some second chances with others and plenty of time to enjoy yourself. You’re clearer about who or what you want. Personal appeal increases. Matters that have challenged you in recent weeks may resolve, and stuck areas of your life can unclog and move forward.

The Moon moves into your sign today, and you’re in good shape for self-expression, friendship, and a positive self-image. Working towards the goal of increased happiness and health are in strong focus.
AquariusAfter six weeks of retrograde motion, Venus turns direct today, dear Aquarius. While it helps clarify your feelings, the shift itself can generate some confusion today. Nevertheless, complicated relationships or feelings can start making sense in the coming weeks, and the road ahead seems to be a little more certain. A decision about a matter of the past now may seem more straightforward to make–it may even become irrelevant. There could be a resolution to feelings of being stuck in the past or hung up on a matter/relationship that’s no longer viable. As with all stations, whether it’s a shift to retrograde or direct, it’s not an ideal time to make or break commitments. Ease into this new phase for best results. As well, Mercury remains retrograde until February 3rd. As such, you can enjoy progress on certain fronts and some apparent backtracking in other areas.

You’re seeking a healthy escape from the usual fare, and emotional refreshment is easier to find than usual.

In the coming weeks, emotional entanglements or complicated feelings and friendships will likely clear up. There can be significant improvements or clarity in your social life. Ideally, you’ve gained valuable insight into your friendships, goals, and level of satisfaction with your connections. Delays lift, answers arrive for some questions, and life goes on. Keep in mind that Mercury remains retrograde until February 3rd, and while some matters are moving forward, other blockages or delays are ongoing. There can be minor delays and problems to manage, but you’re feeling more confident about your feelings and affections. Today, you may get a nice boost from sharing ideas with others or supporting a friend.
