Weekly Horoscope: January 16–22, 2023
If you’re a little cranky at the beginning of the week but don’t know why, just try to get through Monday and Tuesday as best you can. A big old helping of “fake it ‘til you make it” is your bestie as you struggle to get going after a hectic weekend and have trouble gaining traction to get the momentum you need to face your growing to-do list.
Luckily, mental Mercury (the cosmic thinker) leaves its unwelcomed retrograde cycle on Wednesday while paired with ambitious, focused Capricorn, which means you can finally get a lot of things going that have been stuck on the shelf for the past several weeks.
In other areas of your astrological universe, the ever-present sun (repping self-image) says adios to serious Capricorn for the freedom-seeking sign of Aquarius on Friday, so your social life will be pretty lit over the weekend. You love to get together with all types of people and learn about new cultures now. There’s no room for jealousy in this welcoming and expansive world of yours.
A fresh new moon (offering emotional guidance) in avant-garde Aquarius arrives on Saturday — just in time for you to push the envelope and get everyone outside their comfort zones. Making someone uncomfortable with your questions and actions is actually a compliment for you during this rebellious lunation.

Your eleventh house lights up this week as you experience a lot of Aquarian energy landing in your friends and trends zone. You’ll want to be at all the hot restaurant openings and best parties, not to mention wearing all the latest designer bling and hanging out with the cool kids. Do you have enough time to do it all? Hey, you can sleep when you’re dead, right, Aries?
There’s an excess of Aquarian energy to deal with this week, and as these uniquely original vibes hit your tenth career house, you’ll be ready to make some moves at work that no one saw coming. You’re an innovator and a pioneer now, which is a direct 180 from your usual slow, practical approach. Who even are you, Taurus?
The combo of open-minded Aquarius in your ninth house for more than one planetary placement this week is the sign you’ve been waiting for. It’s definitely time for you to expand your horizons and see what else is out there, Gemini. If you’ve been living life with regret, the Universe is telling you that you aren’t fulfilling your destiny. Go out into the world and gain those experiences you’ve been missing out on. #Nomorefomo
You have a steamy week ahead as experimental Aquarius lights up your eighth house of sexual transformation and awakening.

There’s a lot of interesting, eclectic energy surrounding you this week as the Universe absorbs a double helping of what social climber Aquarius is dishing out. Aquarius sits directly across from you on the zodiac wheel, Leo, and therefore this free-thinking force hits you in your seventh house of relationships. It’s time to open your world up to new experiences with interesting people.
Erratic Aquarian energy hits your sixth house of order and routine this week, Virgo, which can mean some initial discomfort for a practical sign like yourself. Yes, things are about to get shaken up, but in the best way possible! You know how you’re going along your day normally, you hit a detour, and you’re afraid it’s going to mess everything up; but instead, you end up discovering something you would never have seen if you’d stayed on your original route? Yeah, it’s like that.
Have you been working too hard lately, Libra? Because the big dose of silly Aquarian energy in your fifth house of fun and entertainment this week signals that it’s time to pump the brakes on your responsibilities and hit the gas on some good times. Can’t get any time off? This week’s anti-authority energy might urge you to be a little rebel and call out sick. We’re not saying that. It’s the universe.
Freedom from your responsibilities is something you’ll be seeking while there’s heavy Aquarian energy in your fourth house of home and family this week, Scorpio. It’s not that you want out of a relationship or don’t want to be a parent or part of an extended family, but you can’t help but think the demands placed on you are a little unfair. Looking for a way out now is natural, even if it’s just temporary.
You’re ready to change up the way you communicate this week as a lot of progressive, revolutionary thoughts flood your mind during Aquarius’ heavy influence on more than one planetary entity. You’re a technology whiz now, too, which means you could get in on the ground floor of creating a new app or developing a new way people keep in touch. If you invent something really incredible, you’ll get to name it, Sag!
There’s a lot of focus from independent, clever Aquarius on your second house of possessions and financial security this week, which has you feeling that when it comes to money matters, maybe you’ve been doing it all wrong! Don’t waste an opportunity to look at your money from a fresh new perspective now, Capricorn, because there are some life-changing ideas out there that can and will elevate and strengthen your financial future if you’re open to them.
This week you have the support from your independent, outspoken and individual first house to really turn up your personality and shine. Your ideas are unique and inventive, and the right people are finally taking notice of what you have to offer. Don’t get shy now, Aquarius. With the spotlight fully on you, it’s your turn to show off what you’ve got. The more you push people to question what’s “normal,” the easier it is for you to convince them that you’re a genius.

Both the sun and the moon are influenced by this sometimes-controversial air sign now, Pisces, which throws your usual romantic, idealistic daydreams into a weird mix of science fiction and fantasy. This is one wild ride you can’t wait to get off of.
