Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, Jan. 7th

Although intense emotional stress appears to follow us around today, we can probably avoid the most annoying problems by talking about our feelings. The mood changes are extreme as the impetuous Aries Moon runs into one difficult aspect after another, encouraging us to react before we even have a plan. However, messenger Mercury aligns with loving Venus to sweeten our words. Denial isn’t a viable strategy, but a little self-restraint is wise.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You might tell someone you trust that you want to take things to the next level, but it’s not easy to reveal what’s in your heart. It grows more challenging to remain open as circumstances shift. The Moon’s visit to courageous Aries pumps up your enthusiasm, but you must push past your own resistance if you want to make real change. Don’t pretend that everything is fine if you’re fearful of emotional conflict. Admit your vulnerability and step into the unknown because that’s where the magic is hiding.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

There is no sensible reason to avoid a passionate person who plays an important role in your day. Even if your first impulse is to retreat, running away from an apparently unsolvable difference of opinions won’t fix anything today. Although you typically enjoy simple pleasures, you now have an opportunity to deepen a relationship that can broaden your perspective and teach you something you need to know. Your unrelenting persistence helps to turn a tricky situation into a positive experience.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Your current restlessness is not about being bored; it’s about wanting to escape from an uncomfortable emotional drama that appears to have hijacked your day. However, denying the truth only increases your anxiety now as you realize that your feelings don’t disappear just because you choose to sidestep the issue. Although resolution won’t likely be immediate, today’s stress passes faster if you share what’s on your mind.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your need to express your creativity runs up against the judgment of others today. Nevertheless, it’s wiser to take a risk now and do what feels right instead of trying not to rock the boat. Although a bit of caution could grease your path with good intentions, don’t sell yourself short. If you give in to fear, you might not get to do what matters most. Claim your power and act with confidence.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your coworkers may think they know you, but your no-nonsense attitude might be hiding the depth of your feelings today. It’s not that you’re trying to mislead anyone; it’s just that you don’t think it’s wise to reveal anything that increases your vulnerability now. Remember, you are not obliged to say more than is comfortable; it’s yours to decide how much of your inner process you wish to share.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

A loved one may come forward today to demonstrate his or her appreciation for your loyalty, but you won’t gain any points by strategizing on how to achieve a desired outcome. Your shortest path to increased intimacy is trusting someone enough now that you can act spontaneously and let your feelings flow. Instead of analyzing every option and considering all the possible reactions, simply follow your heart.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Other people are filled with surprises today and someone’s unexpected actions could stimulate a shift in your thinking. A change of perspective enables you to see the current events in a whole new light, inspiring you to come up with original ideas. However, it may not be such a wise move to express every opinion you have now. Be smart and think twice before saying something that you wish you could take back. Your natural mental flexibility serves you well.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

It’s tempting to become so obsessed with wanting change that you forget about the good things present in your life. The pioneering Aries Moon moves through your 6th House of Work today, encouraging you to add something new to your daily routine. However, instead of suddenly turning your life upside down to free yourself from a rut, consider putting your current drive toward improving what you already have on your plate.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Although you may be overloaded with responsibilities today, you are more than willing to set them aside in the name of fun or creativity. However, your reputation could suffer if you don’t follow through on your promises. Fortunately, meeting your obligations doesn’t mean shutting off your colorful inner world. If you’re clever, you can keep up outward appearances while still fantasizing about your next big adventure.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You can amaze others with your uncanny ability to stay on task today, even if your job isn’t living up to your own ambitious expectations. However, your determination doesn’t come from your attitude about current activities; it’s more likely based on your long-term goals. As long as you hold onto your dreams, you’ll be able to put up with nearly anything now; visualizing your current course will ultimately lead to success.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

It’s easy to give the impression that all is well today because you are so busy that others only catch fleeting glimpses of you flitting from one event to another. However, if you stand still long enough your mask of satisfaction could quickly turn transparent, revealing a deeper malaise. Your inner peace isn’t dependent on the happy face that you wear for everyone’s benefit. You’ll feel better in the long run when you stop hiding your true feelings from those you love. Let them show you they love you back.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Your self-confidence might run into a wall today if someone openly questions your actions or misinterprets your motives. Thankfully, the Moon’s return to your 2nd House of Resources increases your belief that you have something special to offer and ultimately boosts your self-esteem. Instead of allowing yourself to get discouraged by self-doubt, put valid criticism to use by applying it constructively in your life. No matter what, there’s always room for improvement.
