Weekly Horoscope: January 1–7, 2024
Happy New Year! As a new week begins, you’re like an old race car that still has plenty of life in — slow to start but gaining momentum until you hit maximum speed as the weekend approaches.
Your engine is just getting warmed up as a square between Venus (the desire-driven cosmic diva) and Saturn (the planet of discipline) shows up on Monday, which is an aspect that doesn’t really push any boundaries. If you don’t feel like doing too much or being overly productive, that’s totally fine. Enjoy the first day of 2024 without putting any pressure on yourself.
Later on Monday, Mercury (our communications manager) goes direct in energetic Sagittarius, so you’ll feel your motor slowly start to rev as the energy heats up around you. You’re a lot less stuck and a lot more anxious to go somewhere exciting or learn something new. It feels great to be headed forward again, the road stretched out ahead of you, full of possibilities.
On Thursday, Mars (the planet that gives us strength and drive) enters ambitious Capricorn, which is when you’re ready to throw it into fifth gear and hit the open road. Start tackling those New Year’s resolutions with purpose! With this ambitious energy behind you, you can easily find your way around any roadblocks that try to stop you from getting where you want to go.
Your Zodiac Sign’s Weekly Horoscope
After a slow start you’re more than ready to pick up speed. You’re one of the most competitive signs around, Aries, and you aren’t about to let anyone pass you by. By setting some serious goals and going after your dreams, you easily set yourself apart from the rest of the pack.
You’re one of the steadiest zodiac signs, Taurus, but this week requires you to pick up the pace a little bit. You don’t have to be the fastest, but you also don’t want to get totally left behind. Conserve energy during the week and put your reserves to good use toward the weekend. Save challenging tasks until then if possible.
Being overly curious about what everyone else is up to will ruin any momentum you’ve built up this week, Gemini. You’re a lot more mentally active than most, but your own scattered thoughts can act as a big distraction when you’re trying to get things done. Your biggest challenge is to stay on task despite this week’s drama and disruptions.
Most of the time you’re okay with not being part of the drama, but this week something or someone plays on your emotions and draws you in before you even realize it. Don’t let yourself get caught up in a situation that will only lead to heartache, Cancer. Once you see red flags, hit the exit. Use every bit of willpower you have to walk out that door and don’t look back.
You love to be near the action, so this week’s dramatic developments bring you more pleasure than most. Yes, you might be late to the party, but once you get there, you’re set on being the last one standing. Luckily, your rizz makes you a popular guest at almost any event. No matter what the occasion, you’re on the invite list! Have fun celebrating, Leo!
This week contains enough excitement to keep you interested in what might happen next combined with the steadiness you need to stay interested and on track. Not getting too far off the rails in either direction is one of your trademark qualities, Virgo. While you might not have the most exciting life, it’s a tradeoff you’re happy to make.
While it might look like kind of a train wreck in the beginning, the week’s ups and downs ultimately give you that all-important balance you seek, Libra. As an eternal optimist you’re able to see things from a positive point of view, which helps you accomplish whatever you need with minimal stress. You’re definitely one of the lucky ones!
You have a choice to make this week, Scorpio: either stress out about all of the things you can’t control, or just roll with the waves as best you can. We advise the latter, especially since there are so many unpredictable moments headed your way. Yes, we know you don’t like to be blindsided by unpredictability, but sometimes you have no choice but to just deal with it.
You’re not about to let some little bumps in the road stop you. You kind of live for those little surprise moments, and you accept that all of them aren’t going to go your way. Which is fine with you. Really. You love a good challenge, which is a good thing, because this week is full of them!
Unlike other less driven signs, Capricorn, you look at the curves ahead sign and don’t doubt for a second that you can expertly navigate them. You’re steady behind the wheel, and you’re patient enough to go slow around those treacherous corners. Let other people go around you; you aren’t deterred by their lack of patience.
Even when you know that everything isn’t going to be smooth sailing, you can’t wait to get started on your journey. Your logical, inquisitive outlook makes you want to explore the ins and outs of every problem, even if it slows you down and causes you to miss a date or deadline. Figuring things out is what you do best, and you have your plate full of difficult puzzles this week, Aquarius!
You’re in the mood to procrastinate, but doing absolutely nothing won’t give you good results. How about committing to doing at least the minimum so that you can feel a small sense of accomplishment by the time the week is over with? Your head is at home in the clouds, Pisces, but some tasks require you to use your brain to do more than just dream.
