Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, January 1

Unimportant events that might normally pass by unnoticed now stand out with greater emphasis once the Moon slips into detail-oriented Virgo and sharpens our perspective. However, words don’t seem to match up with what’s happening as communicator Mercury aligns with confusing Neptune. The Moon’s stressful opposition to Neptune infuses our feelings with fantasy. Nevertheless, separating facts from fiction can be enough to create positive change.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Although this is likely a day away from work, there might be so much to do at home that you wish you were on the job. Nevertheless, you can see past the present moment as you anticipate the waves of relief heading your way. In the meantime, focusing on the present moment keeps your mind occupied. Don’t let your responsibilities lag; taking care of the most pressing tasks right away eases the intensity so you can find time to relax.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

A cautious approach to having fun today might sound restrictive at first, but you should be able to make this strategy work with ease. There is no need to go overboard with any type of indulgence; you can thoroughly enjoy yourself now by sharing simple pleasures with your friends or family. Instead of scheming for more gratification in the future, find contentment with what you have in the present.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You may feel conflicted today because you’re currently motivated by needs that are different from your natural tendencies. Normally, you would choose communication over silence and activity over passivity. However, you can recharge your emotional batteries now by passing up a tempting party invitation or skipping a distracting trip to the bookstore. But even if you wisely choose to retreat, a part of you still longs for the action. Rest now; play later.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

You are unsure about how involved you want to get with the emotional dramas that are unfolding around you. You might decide that acting cautiously is smarter than jumping into a conflict, only to discover that you are already playing a role in the scene anyhow. You may as well offer your assistance today, for your resistance will only delay a workable resolution. Showing your support by listening to your friends is the first step to establishing common ground.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You may doubt yourself if you are putting too much effort into containing your energy. You’re happiest when your love can be expressed naturally and everyone fully appreciates the magic you bring to their world. Now, however, it’s tricky finding a healthy balance between your inner and outer worlds. Too much exuberance makes others uncomfortable. Too much self-restraint prompts them to worry about you. Don’t be overly concerned; ultimately, all you can do is be yourself.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Even if there are unresolved issues floating around a current relationship, you can still latch onto a sense of well-being today. Once you decide to take everything in stride, communication becomes more straightforward and you’re apt to just say what’s on your mind. You’re smart enough to know that some things are beyond fixing, and worrying about them won’t make it easier to let go. Forget about the big picture for a while and revel in what you can do in the present moment.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Retreating from the hectic world is a smart idea today and if you take care of your responsibilities early on, you can actually manifest a very relaxing day. However, you must scale back your social obligations or things probably won’t unfold according to your ideal plan. Be ready for a few unexpected twists and turns; engage them willingly instead of resisting the inevitable. Your adaptability is the secret to your success.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Although you might believe that being alone with your thoughts is the best way to spend the day, you will probably be better off hanging out with others today. But don’t squander your time by celebrating with just anyone; you can be as selective as you want when it comes to the company you keep. Choose a few special friends and carve out enough space to share something meaningful. An unexpected gift of appreciation or a warm gesture of affection is a wonderful way to demonstrate your love.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You have recently experienced a phase of expansionism and it’s time to re-establish balance in your life. Actually, your tendency to overstep limits may be a central theme for months to come, but it’s still not healthy to lose yourself in unrealistic visions for next year. Instead, focus your attention on something you can change right now — in the present moment. Today, thinking small is your smartest strategy.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Having a concrete plan can help you feel better, but it still may be difficult to turn your thoughts into actions today. Don’t be too self-judgmental if you can’t yet get the traction you desire. You wisely realize that the best ideas take time to develop. Nevertheless, remember that you are currently caught between optimism and realism. Be patient; the pace will accelerate in the months ahead and a solid foundation prepares you for the changes of the future.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

It’s awesome that you can still be comfortable even when life gets strange and weird. It’s not that anything in particular is going wrong now; it’s just that there are lots of loose ends that defy tying up. Instead of attempting to finish last year’s business today, accepting circumstances as they are may be your most intelligent approach. Your irreverent sense of humor might just save the day, capturing the attention of admirers of a quick wit.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your friends might try to bring you back down to earth today, but it’s not easy to spend time with them if they’re raining on your dreams and draining your enthusiasm. It’s not that they have bad intentions where you’re concerned; it’s just that they don’t understand the intense relationship you have with your imagination. You can be more tolerant of others once you understand that they sincerely have your happiness in mind.
