Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, January 8th
Love might seem scarce today, but we may be pleasantly surprised if we slow down and look beyond surface appearances. It’s tempting to show our displeasure by withdrawing emotionally as the austere Venus-Saturn conjunction resonates through our lives. Blending the warmth of Venus with the coldness of Saturn requires hard work. Meanwhile, the Moon’s shift into goal-oriented Capricorn at 10:06 am EST confirms that there are no shortcuts to happiness.
Aries Horoscope Mar 21 – Apr 19
Giving someone the cold shoulder isn’t nice, even if you want to send a message of disapproval today. Withdrawing support isn’t helpful if your response is actually based on your current fear of the unknown. It’s more productive to engage in an honest discussion about the cause of your concerns without throwing any blame around. However, don’t expect the tension to dissipate immediately. A river cuts through rock not because of its power but because of its persistence.
Taurus Horoscope Apr 20 – May 20
It’s no fun feeling like you’re being left out of all the action today. It’s as if there’s an emotional chill in the atmosphere now that affectionate Venus is burdened by the weight of karmic Saturn. Although you might push back against the resistance at first, the smartest way to turn an uncomfortable situation into a sweet one is to let go of control. Relinquish some of your independence voluntarily; it’s a small price to pay in the big scheme of things and can improve your chances of feeling like you’re a part of the pack.
Gemini Horoscope May 21 – Jun 20
You may be required to make a tough choice today, especially if you’re not one to sign on to a commitment easily. You could be quite convincing now as you reveal your desire for greater intimacy in a relationship, but you might still feel the urge to run for the hills if someone gets too close to your heart. Thankfully, you’re not doomed to repeat the same old patterns just because you’re worried about getting hurt. Mustering up the courage to push past your fears is the secret to your happiness.
Cancer Horoscope Jun 21 – Jul 22
Gaining support from a coworker is tricky business today, but you won’t know what you might receive unless you ask for it. Even if you can’t imagine that anyone will actually go the extra mile on your behalf, taking a calculated risk could turn out in your favor. Don’t scare yourself by assuming the current situation demands an all-or-nothing approach. Instead, be cautious and systematically establish common ground as the basis of a solid working relationship. You’re not alone; let others nurture you the way you would nurture them.
Leo Horoscope Jul 23 – Aug 22
It could be awkward to engage in a casual conversation today because your feelings might be exposed, and you’re worried that you won’t get what you want. Ironically, your unspoken concerns could manifest into a self-fulfilling prophesy, especially if you choose to withdraw from social interactions. Luckily, you have the resolve to overcome the negativity of your own fears. Turn things around quickly by changing your attitude and opening your heart.
Virgo Horoscope Aug 23 – Sep 22
It may be disheartening if you don’t receive the respect you deserve from a loved one as vulnerable Venus bumps into judgmental Saturn in your 4th House of Home and Family. You’ve done everything right, yet your ego can trick you into believing you should be more appreciated than you are today. Don’t waste your time dreaming about receiving accolades and standing ovations. The best reward is the deep satisfaction that comes from within when you know you’ve done your very best.
Libra Horoscope Sep 23 – Oct 22
Too much resistance from a friend or coworker doesn’t give you an excuse to sulk and brood today. Don’t isolate yourself from your companions just because you think that everything isn’t copacetic between you. It may be tempting to hide your feelings from those closest to you, but this avoidance tactic is not a satisfying solution. Confronting the shortcomings of a relationship might put you back in touch with what you admire about each other the most.
Scorpio Horoscope Oct 23 – Nov 21
You’re not inclined to put too much effort into sharing your feelings today. In fact, you’re quite practical when it comes to allocating your time and energy now that resourceful Venus joins forces with austere Saturn in your 2nd House of Resources. You may be very straightforward about cutting back on frivolous pleasures to assure you will have what you need on a rainy day. Naturally, exercising caution makes logical sense at first. However, there’s an unlimited supply of love in the universe, so you can always splurge when your heart is involved.
Sagittarius Horoscope Nov 22 – Dec 21
The time has come to make a crucial decision about how to spend or save your money. But this choice goes much deeper than being a simple cash flow problem because the underlying issue is more likely about your self-esteem. When you realize all the skills you have to offer, your earning power could grow beyond your current expectations. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you’re worth any less than you actually are. Real wealth is not about your income potential; it’s about appreciating what is already yours.
Capricorn Horoscope Dec 22 – Jan 19
There’s no reason to suffer in silence today if you’re willing to face an old fear with a fierce new attitude. Your emotional isolation is probably more voluntary than you care to admit now that the sobering Venus-Saturn conjunction influences your 12th House of Invisibility. It helps to acknowledge that the current situation is not the same as what happened in your past. You can choose to respond defensively, based on an old habit, or you can live in the present. There’s no question about it, being an optimist is a much more empowering strategy than being a pessimist.
Aquarius Horoscope Jan 20 – Feb 18
Don’t rush to the conclusion that your friends are putting you down today when your limited perceptions may be contributing to your worries. In fact, you could be so sensitive now that you imagine trouble where there isn’t any. Unfortunately, it might be too late to sidestep a dance with discomfort. Nevertheless, it’s not necessary to project your previous failures onto others; discuss your concerns without pointing fingers at anyone. A heart-to-heart discussion may be all that’s needed to put things right.
Pisces Horoscope Feb 19 – Mar 20
Unfortunately, there’s no room on your busy schedule to surrender to your desires now. Instead, you must maintain an emotionally cool and competent presence at work while flirty Venus hooks up with responsible Saturn in your 10th House of Career. There’s no time to waste energy complaining about what you’re missing as you strive to achieve your long-term goals. Seeking personal satisfaction can wait; practicing patience today is your best strategy for realizing your dreams tomorrow.
