Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:
|Aquarius - The Water Bearer|
into the World
This week we have the first of two New Moons in Aquarius, which speaks to the potency of energy we will all be experiencing this week and for the next month.
It’s officially a New Moon in Aquarius at 8:14 a.m. EST on Tuesday January 20, 2015.
*Usually we post the New Moon and the Weekly Horoscopes separately, but since this week we have the New Moon so early in the week on Tuesday morning, the weekly and New Moon Horoscopes are included together here.
First off, Monday we have Venus and Jupiter standing across the sky from one another. It can be a time to want to feel glamorous and enjoy indulgence, but such desires can go a little too far for some today. Too much excess in foods and drinks can put on extra pounds. Pulling out credit cards to indulge in the pleasures of shopping can lead to excessive debt. Enjoyment doesn’t have to burn a hole in your wallet.
Finding joy in people is recommended now. In romantic relationships, magnetism increases when enjoying pleasure and expressing joy is a priority. Working in partnership and learning about one another’s creative and innovative gifts can be a lot of fun as well and bring forth great ideas.
We also have Mars meeting Neptune on Monday as well. Excess energy can lead to insomnia for many tonight. It’s a good time to work on uniting the root and crown chakras. Curiosity about the ancient wisdom of tantra can be alluring. Taking action to reach higher states of consciousness leads to wisdom. Dreams and fantasies can be active and magical.
This New Moon in Aquarius on Tuesday morning is at the very early degrees of Aquarius, just 3 hours after the Sun enters Aquarius. This has fresh start written all over it. New awareness and new ideas are inevitable. Write down and expand on your flashes of inspiration. New inventions, especially technological advances, will most likely make notable appearances over the coming weeks. This is a time of hopefulness and when intuitive breakthroughs can make a difference in the world.
It’s a great time to bring forward your unique qualities and celebrate them. Intuition will heighten as well and collective consciousness can start a new shift now with the power to influence and impact the world. What we hope for as a collective can be demonstrated by those who are intelligent and unafraid to speak and share the truth. A new view of the world starts with the individual shift in awareness. Creatives will find inspiration can be genius.
With this New Moon in Aquarius and the next New Moon in mid-February also being in Aquarius, many will feel more attuned to new-age spiritual philosophies. An interest in learning more about astrology and divination will also heighten for many. Science, technology and future thought are emphasized. It's a great week to enjoy sci-fi books and films for your enjoyment and stimulation of creative, inventive thoughts.
Our personal place in the world relative to the collective is emphasized now as well. How we can make a difference in our own lives and as part of groups and a larger vision for our future becomes increasingly important.
Also in Aquarius we have Mercury stationing retrograde on the following day, on Wednesday January 21st. As most of you well know, Mercury retrograde indicates there will be some technological glitches and miscommunications. However, with Mercury retrograde, especially in Aquarius, any challenges that arise will inspire us to think of new ways to be more effective. It’s a great time to rethink your strategy in how you communicate with others and work with information, especially technologically. Money matters and trade will get even more interesting. Rethinking what the financial future holds will be on many minds.
Mercury retrograde also speaks to internal processes getting more attention, and so being alone, or with closest friends to think things through is best. An independent streak is more likely now. It can be a great time to access more psychic aspects of yourself. Intuition can trump logic now. It's a great time to reconsider how you can be a bit of a rebel in your own right by following your heart. It is an excellent time for the creative minded to go within and rediscover how we access and process information. How we interpret our lives now will lead us to change course and realize how to create a better future.
If technological advances are released in the press now, with Mercury retrograde over the coming weeks, the details may not be so clear. People with an interest in new technology will likely point out flaws and changes that need to be made with more fervor. Details overlooked will need more attention. A lack of clarity in operations and processes will require tweaks to be made to deem the new, creative ideas as satisfactory. This can be true with your more personal interactions with apps and devices now as well.
As the week progresses this New Moon energy will increase as the Moon waxes towards the Full Moon in a couple of weeks. This can certainly be a time where personal insights and personal development increases. Many will enjoy being in their own bubble to work on what matters most to them personally. Personal awakening and moments of satori are highly likely. Pay close attention to double digits, especially the number 11. Are you saying or thinking anything significant or important at these times you notice synchronicity calls you? Write down your insights when deja vu and synchronistic phenomena catches your attention. Those insights at key moments are meant to help you realize and create a future in line with your newfound awarenesses.
On Friday, the Sun in Aquarius has a nice connection with Saturn in Sagittarius. Practical action that is inspired by self-respect helps us work on what really matters to us. Knowing what needs to be done, being responsible and mature, helps us actively pursue a future that is wiser and better. You can create greater stability in life by using your common sense. Determination brings a greater sense of purpose which helps you to enjoy life more.
On Saturday and Sunday the Moon is in Aries connecting with Uranus. We can get an extra burst of energy which could come on suddenly reminding us that we really do want our new beginnings to energize our life. A disagreement or surprise that affects you emotionally can lead to motivation to choose your way more independently. Brilliant thoughts can suddenly arise that are worth noting. You are encouraged to be a little more unconventional than usual now. There can be some resistance to change, but with a focus on growth and happiness, you’ll be able to invent yourself anew.

Virgo: A new, practical approach to your daily routine is right up your alley. It’s an excellent time for you to put new processes in place. Explore which ones feel right. With Mercury retrograde now, it’s best for you to try out various approaches and see which ones work best and rule out the ones that don’t. Each step you take and each step you plan to take should be guided by the larger vision. Break down the work into chunks.

It’s a great time for you to start a new health and wellness routine and create new habits.

Money matters of course come into play, and if you play your cards wisely, you will be able to balance your sense of security with your vision. However, with Mercury retrograde it is best for you to use this time to think new, but not necessarily pursue yet. It’s best to listen to your intuition and be patient for new information to come in as it may, before you make any decisions. Creative energy that is full of fantasy is with you. Surreal dreams of passion are certainly possible.
Sagittarius: Your self doubts can be alleviated by new insights now. Conversations are key. Talking about your future, what you want and who you want to be is really important this week. If you take a serious look at who you identify as because of who you were, you will be able to become wiser to who you want to become and what choices you can make to lead you there. Mercury going retrograde gives you a chance to reconsider your vision for your life. Your intuition will be heightened this week. This week you may feel like internalizing a lot, but conversations can hold wisdom you may need to hear as well, so keep an open mind.
Capricorn: New opportunities for money are a good focus for you this week. This New Moon brings a fresh start in your sector of finance. Your vision for what you want has a great impact. A need for independence can motivate you, but it’s not a bad idea to also consider how working with groups can bring you that sense of security you want to solidify. Rethinking your money situation is important this week. Relieving yourself of poverty consciousness is likely this week. Practical and spiritual ideas can merge and give you innovative ideas that are worthwhile.
Aquarius: The New Moon in your sign is of course bringing you to a place where opportunity knocks. With another New Moon in your sign next month, this can be a pivotal time in your life. This is a rare event to have two New Moon’s in your sign, so take advantage of the fresh, new energy and motivation on offer. This is a time to see yourself in a new light. Your identity is shifting and so is your vision for what you are working towards in life. All the answers won’t come overnight.

Who you are as an individual, has the ability to impact the collective consciousness.
Pisces: You may have insomnia this week. With Mars in your sign, connecting with your ruling planet Neptune, it can be an enlivening week for you.
