Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, Jan. 21st

Weaving stories to connect the apparently separate bits of data in our lives creates tapestries of information. The Moon’s shift into curious Gemini at 9:04 am EST pulls us out of our hearts and into our heads. We feel like we have all the answers as the Moon harmonizes with the conscious Sun, clever Mercury and confident Jupiter. Conceptual breakthroughs are likely as Mercury the Messenger forms a collaborative sextile with ingenious Uranus.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 Apr 19)

Your mind is free to explore new ideas today, and your words are in the spotlight. Although you can jump to brilliant conclusions very quickly now, think before you speak and carefully read your email through one more time before you hit the send button. However, there’s no reason to hold back once you’re sure of your message. Since you have a greater impact on others than you realize, it’s wise to get it right the first time. Give your waiting audience a show they won’t forget.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 May 20)

Your thoughts may run amok today, as if they’re not under the jurisdiction of your logic. But temporarily setting aside common sense can actually lead to an unconventional solution to a tricky problem. Unfortunately, your co-workers might not be willing to give your ideas a fair hearing unless you have the facts to back up your position. Do your homework and be sure to have your information in order before sharing your plans with anyone else.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 Jun 20)

The Moon’s return to restless Gemini inspires your thoughts to fly around in circles, as if they are eagles spiraling on the thermals. Your performance seems easy and graceful to others, but you might need to work hard to keep up the appearance. Meanwhile, you could feel stuck as the prevailing winds won’t allow you to break free. Don’t waste energy struggling against the breezes now; enjoy floating around until the wind changes and gives you an opportunity to escape.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 Jul 22)

Sharing your emotions can be a challenge now, even if you’re clear about how you feel. However, you sense a change coming and you aren’t yet sure as to which way your mood will swing next. Thankfully, this uncertainty isn’t upsetting or worrisome today as long as you are content to just wait it out before making any important decisions. In the meantime, discuss your options objectively and be open to the feedback you receive.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 Aug 22)

Someone might come to you with an unusual plan today, but you aren’t so quick to endorse what you consider to be a risky solution to a simple problem. You can envision alternate strategies that seem more straightforward, and you would rather exhaust these direct approaches first. Even if you’re certain that your answer is the most logical one, remain open to the surprises you encounter along the way.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 Sep 22)

Your friends need you today in ways that require you to express more emotions than you prefer. Even if you’re resistant to revealing your inner thoughts now, try softening enough to give others what they want. You may feel like you’re just going through the motions at first, but sharing your heart is a perfect prescription to brighten your day. You might receive something beautiful in exchange for stepping outside of your comfort zone.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 Oct 22)

You could find yourself in a jam today, and you’re uncertain if you should ask for help or just let it ride. Imagine what you would do if you had absolutely nothing standing in your way. Then, return your focus back to your current situation. If sharing your needs can bring you any closer to your goals, then don’t hesitate to say what’s on your mind and just deal with the consequences as they arise.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 Nov 21)

You may intellectualize complex emotions that normally elude description. But your intuition is operating in overdrive now, so don’t be afraid to rely on it. Nevertheless, you still have to prioritize your needs or you will be pulled in so many directions that you’ll just end up annoyed. However, having a clear destination in mind gives you just enough stability that you can be creative without losing your way.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 Dec 21)

You can talk your way out of nearly anything today, relying on your social graces to avoid conflict. Your charm and wit are working for you now in ways that surprise even you. You know what you want and are willing to ask for it. Still, you could miss a significant opportunity when it appears in your life if you aren’t receptive. Being more sensitive to others helps you recognize your own path to happiness.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

It may be challenging to stay motivated today because you can discover so many fun ways to keep your mind occupied that you end up avoiding your chores. Leaving a job undone is contrary to your basic nature, since you like to take care of business before you play. However, it’s time to try something different now by making pleasurable distractions your top priority for a change. The work will patiently wait for your return.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 Feb 18)

You could be very happy today, even if there’s too much happening in your life. For example, you might agree to one too many tasks and now you must find a way out of your extra commitments. Nevertheless, mischievous Mercury tempts you into thinking there’s a viable shortcut you can take. However, the flirty Gemini Moon’s presence in your 5th House of Fun and Games indicates that you should be able to enjoy the company of others even if you still have a job to finish


Pisces Horoscopes

(Feb 19 Mar 20)

Your thoughts are moving so rapidly now that you may not be able to keep up with your own fantasies as they overflow into your reality. But even the most original ideas don’t bring you any closer to a viable solution, so it might be wise to keep the unfinished schemes to yourself for now. Even if it takes another week or so, allow plenty of time for your plans to solidify before sharing them with anyone else. Start by writing everything down that crosses your mind, and then you can make sense of it all later.
