Weekly Astrology Horoscopes for January 18 to 24, 2016 and The Full Moon in Leo

Weekly Horoscope Overview
Weekly Horoscopes for each Sign are listed below after the overview:

Welcome to another week. This week begins with Venus in Sagittarius and Jupiter retrograde in Virgo at odds. Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius so Venus is in his domain.

This says that we want the good blessings in life, but we’ve got to learn how to make it happen. Abundance and prosperity usually don’t just fall into people’s laps. Sometimes people are lucky, sure, but usually you need to make things happen by figuring out how to get to that place of comfort you wish for. It can be difficult for many to feel grateful for where they are now.

With Jupiter retrograde in Virgo, it’s about having faith in yourself, to believe in yourself and live from that place every day. It’s time to learn how to do the inner work to grow. New routines, new approaches and putting a system in place that allows you to be productive and make gains step by step is recommended now. It’s about taking the time to develop your skills so you can grow from the inside out. Once you have put in the time and effort to grow your talents and skills, you can then use those abilities to attract and create the abundance and prosperity you seek.

Jupiter is also joined with the North Node now in Virgo in very close orb. Your day to day routine is where the magic is found. Each of us are implored to bring greater attention to how we’re living our lives day in and day out, including our health and work habits. Is what you’re doing every day, and are your habits adding to the bigger picture and helping you get closer to your aims? This is a great time to reevaluate your habits and to replace them with better choices.

Mercury is the ruler of Virgo. With Mercury retrograde in Virgo’s fellow earth sign Capricorn as well now, this adds to the atmosphere of rethinking your routine. For instance, if you tend to go to the same gossip websites, passively scroll through social networks, are addicted to your phone or to the news on tv, and excessively waste precious time as so many do, you may try replacing that mindless information consumption habit with researching subjects you’ve been meaning to learn more about. Actively changing your habits makes room for your better intentions and aims to grow. Each small change sets the stage for better things to come.

When Mercury is retrograde we can also see people coming back into our lives, making appearances again in the media and in Capricorn politicians can show up again in the news. On a personal level memories of people and pets from our past can come up, and physical objects found can bring back reminders of those from your past.

Venus in Sagittarius has us finding greater value in our lives. Living with purpose can help to attract the good things that will support us and help us feel enthusiastic and grounded. But, since she’s at odds with Jupiter now, the dream of having a glamorous, abundant lifestyle can come with a reality check. If for instance you were to attempt to use your good looks as a way of getting whatever you want, you may have a wake up call where you’re instead asked to show your skills. The famous phrase by Judge Judy comes to mind, “Beauty fades, dumb is forever.” Maybe that’s a bit of an extreme, over the top statement, but Venus and Jupiter at odds does speak to being a bit excessive.

With Venus and Jupiter at odds it have us asking, “What’s holding me back from my blessings?” The answers will lead to creating new habits that are in line with your vision.

Jupiter retrograde in Virgo speaks to smart, articulate, intelligent inner growth. Changing habits, and learning new skills are highly recommended to make the most of this time.

Neatness and tidiness are also recommended. You can be reminded now of how much more beautiful you can make your environment by seeing how much improvement can be made. Valuing what you do have, and being grateful for your material possessions can prompt a cleaning and caring for your space. Health and wellness, including waking up to realizing your bad eating habits and replacing them with better choices is likely to show up for many now as well. If you need motivation, just watch an episode of How Clean is Your House with Kim and Aggie to see how bad it can get when people are not keeping up with their day to day routines, and how much of a difference a bit of focus, attention and care can make.

On Wednesday, the Sun enters Aquarius. Happy birthday to all the Aquarians out there! This is when we start to pay more attention to where we’re headed in the future. As you’re aware Mercury is retrograde now. He was in Aquarius when he began his retrograde phase, and now is back in Capricorn and in a few weeks as he heads forward will return to Aquarius. This has us rethinking where we're heading in our future and what needs to be addressed further to help clear the path.

Mercury retrograde in Capricorn reaches out to Uranus in Aries. This Mercury retrograde cycle is bringing more attention back to the Uranus-Pluto square.

Mercury retrograde has us rethinking a lot of things and asking a lot of questions. Some of them can be more personally oriented around our goals and careers, but a significant area of focus now is the economy. Mercury rules commerce and when he goes retrograde we need to take another look at what’s happening in the exchanges of money. The stock market has been dropping significantly for all of January so far. Mercury retrograde is the trickster and it’s not uncommon for lies and manipulations to be under the microscope. Mercury was all set to go forward into the future in Aquarius, but then right away it was like he said, “Wait a minute. I’ve got to go back and take another look at what’s been going on in the economy, with big business and the big players on the world stage.”

Mercury will also be meeting Pluto in Capricorn this week during this retrograde phase. Capricorn rules authority, government, politics, business and larger institutions that govern society and business which of course includes banks. Pluto is the planet that signifies transformation, death and rebirth, he is the ruler of the underworld. With Mercury retrograde here now this is when we take a look at what’s going on behind the scenes in the economy, business and the stock market. There’s a big pullback now, with stocks dropping significantly for all of 2016 so far. Pluto also rules Scorpio and resources, much of which, as we know, boils down to debt.

The Uranus-Pluto square is up for consideration again with Mercury reaching out to Uranus and meeting Pluto now. Are we going to be able to figure out a way to find freedom from the dark side of the political-socio-economic system?

On Friday, Mercury reaches Pluto and they conjunct in Capricorn. Expect the media to be in full force this week with lots of rhetoric and talk about the economy. Political discussions on finances and even war are also likely to be amped up with Uranus in Aries.

On personal levels this has us thinking more deeply, but not having all the answers or all the clarity. Information can be missing, and so researching in depth on subjects you want to learn more about will take extra time. The process of going around in circles a bit can be beneficial though by revealing various, random points of view you may not usually consider. It is easy to get distracted from your own focus though and get caught up in gossip and political ideas.

On Saturday Venus enters Capricorn. Money matters in business and the economy get even more attention. People’s values will increasingly become more front and center. Commitments in love can become a more prominent goal for many.

It’s a Full Moon in Leo on Saturday, January 23, 2016 at 8:46 pm ET.

For the past couple of weeks we’ve been working our way from the New Moon in Capricorn toward this Full Moon in Leo. The New Moon had set the stage for us to focus on our goals, careers and higher aims.

Now with the Full Moon in Leo, we are likely to see people’s personalities come out more. For some this will be finally allowing creative expression to come to life. Whether it’s through arts or entertainment, the creative spirit can flourish now.

There’s a lot still happening in Capricorn, so world politics and the economy is a big issue. When people in top positions of authority are feeling high and mighty it can also bring out the bossiness, domineering side of people. With a Full Moon in Leo, the ego can be unleashed and clash in grand displays by those who live from a highly self serving perspective.

But, now that the Sun is in Aquarius, and we have a Full Moon in Leo, people are going to want to start paying more attention to what the vision of the future is. Who we are expressing ourselves to be is essential in how the future unfolds. How can we be more inventive and create more joy, enthusiasm and happiness in life? How can we focus on improving our relationships? It’s important for us to start communicating hope with one another, and sharing our very best in our relationships.
