Weekly Horoscope Sunday, January 8 to Saturday, January 14, 2023

All Signs

This year Hanukkah took place from December 18 to 26. Yule culminated its celebration on December 21, on the Winter Solstice. Yesterday, January 7, was Christmas in Ukraine and for others who observe the orthodox calendar. On January 15, it will be World Religion Day. And for many of us, Christmas was celebrated on December 25th at home or in airports. But to my way of thinking, the Romans knew what most of us are facing this week; hence, their famous phrase: Veni vidi vacus. I came, I saw, I vacuumed.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is the perfect week to gear up and reach out to others and socialize! Make contact with people you have not seen or talked to for a while. In particular, you will enjoy interacting with creative, talented individuals. Furthermore, everyone will be glad to see you because with the Sun at the top of your chart, you look fabulous! Plus, lucky Jupiter is now in your sign, which also hypes you popularity and increases your good fortune! By Thursday, you’re raring to go. This is when Mars turns direct in your House of Schmooze. By the end of the week, you’re sailing on steroids!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This week, you are full of ways to explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine, the law and taking courses perhaps, or working in higher education. These are all things that will expand your horizons. However, what will most titillate you, will be an opportunity to travel! This is why many of you are travelling or making travel plans for the future. Meanwhile, relations with bosses, parents and VIPs are warm and mutually supportive. (A romance with a boss will flourish for some.) By Thursday, financial matters will get the green light, which means you will be excited about moneymaking ideas. You will also be spending fast and furious! Ka-ching!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a lovely and energetic week! Travel for pleasure will appeal. Some of you will strike up a romance with someone who is “different.” You look attractive to others, which is why you are starting to be more popular. This is also why some of you are increasing your involvement in clubs, groups and organizations. Sharpen your focus on shared property, inheritances, debt and taxes to clean up loose ends because you can do this with skill, planning and attention to detail. Meanwhile, Mars has been retrograde in your sign since late October, creating snafus and delays! This week on Thursday, Mars turns direct, which means from here on, you’ll be all systems go!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This week you will be friendly and sociable with everyone including members of the general public. In particular, you will have a stronger focus on partners and close friends. In fact, physical intimacy will be particularly affectionate and meaningful at this time because fair Venus is hyping your romantic desires. Your reputation will shine now and in the coming year, because Jupiter is at the top of your chart making you look successful to everyone. This week gifts, goodies and money from others might come your way. Meanwhile on Thursday, when Mars stops being retrograde, you will feel that “behind-the-scenes difficulties” are over. And the rain fell and the crops grew and there was peace in the land.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This will be a productive week for you – no question. The timing is right. You’re ready to swing into action. For starters, relations with others, especially partners and close friends, are mutually supportive, friendly and agreeable. Meanwhile, the position of the Sun and Mercury in your chart will make you want to work efficiently and be as productive as possible. In fact, you will pay attention to detail and be willing to do routine work to get it out of the way. Meanwhile, on Thursday when Mars stations direct, you will find that interactions with groups and organizations, as well as contacts with friends will suddenly spring to life! People will contact you. You will contact them. Busy, busy. “Shops must be visited. Money must be spent.”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a glorious, lovely week for you! Grab every chance you can find to enjoy fun, social outings with others. A power breakfast? A long lunch? Fun with the gang at Happy Hour. Meet a friend for dinner? Grab a movie. See Avatar in 3-D (something I have yet to do). Enjoy sports events and playful activities with children. Of course, romance will flourish! Meanwhile, work colleagues will be supportive and friendly. You might see ways to boost your income through your work. On Thursday, Mars will start moving forward at the top of your chart, which will arouse your ambition as never before! Enjoy good times. Expect success.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

I’m sure you can resonate with the Roman phrase in All Signs above because this week, you want to pull your act together at home and where you live. This makes sense because more than any other sign, you are affected by your immediate environment. Lighting, smells, sounds, colours and the general ambience of the world around you will affect your mood. On Thursday, when Mars stations direct and starts to move forward, you will be keen to travel and explore opportunities in publishing, legal matters and medical issues. However, you will also feel ambitious and very hands-on about straightening up where you live and making everything look wonderful. Begin this new year in lovely surroundings. You deserve this!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your daily pace is accelerated now because you have a busier than usual schedule due to appointments, errands and short trips. Fortunately, it’s a “happy busy” time so you won’t mind hustling. This is an excellent time to study and learn something new. It’s also a great time to converse with siblings, relatives and neighbours. Meanwhile, you will enjoy redecorating your digs and making them look better because this will please you. Since this is a year when you will improve your health and improve your job, it’s important to make sure that your home base is covered and you don’t have to worry about that too much. Give yourself this luxury.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your focus on money, earnings and cash flow continues. You have moneymaking ideas, which are worth your consideration. (You often like to dream up ideas about how to get rich quick.) In this vein of thinking, many of you will make money in the coming year related to the entertainment world, the hospitality industry, resorts, golf courses, and anything to do with sports. This also includes the education and involvement of children. This is because financial speculation looks good for you in 2023. This week, communications with others will be sweet and supportive. You’ll find that you have a greater appreciation of your daily surroundings. Certainly, from Thursday on, relations with partners and close friends will improve. Thank heavens!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a powerful week for you! For starters, the Sun and Mercury are in your sign, which attracts favourable situations to you as well as people. In turn, Mercury will promote your ability to reach out and connect with others. This is an excellent time for example to give a public talk or to teach. People want to hear you. Meanwhile, you can attract money to you at this time! This is also why you are spending money on beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. This is not surprising because this year, you will improve where you live by fixing up your current home or moving to someplace better. On Thursday, when Mars finally goes forward after being retrograde for the last few months – you will be keen to work and be as productive as possible!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This continues to be another week when you are happy to keep a low profile. With all the recent hoopla, you welcome a chance to catch up on things by working alone or working behind the scenes. In fact, you will make great strides doing any kind of research, or the study of the past, or the study of history. Despite your desire to be low-key, with Venus in your sign, you find it easy to schmooze with others now because you are so charming and diplomatic. Those of you who are involved in sports, the entertainment world, the hospitality industry and working or educating children will be happy to know that the delays you have suffered in the last few months are over as of Thursday. You can move forward now with confidence!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a popular time for you. In particular, you are enjoying the company of younger people and sharing ideas as well as goals for the future with others to get their feedback. This week is an excellent time to reach out and make contact with others. Make social plans. Make an effort to see others. Invite people home to your own digs because all these interactions with others will please you. On Thursday, when Mars finally moves forward after being retrograde since late October, you will feel a strong energy to revitalize your home and do whatever you can to fix repairs and make things better. This same positive energy will encourage you to interact in a positive way with family. Yay!
