Weekly Horoscope: January 23–29, 2023
Now that the craziness of the holidays has officially died down, this might be the first time you can sit back, relax and take a little breather from the busyness of the last couple of months, which the universe fully supports with its uplifting, free-flowing transits this week.
Early on you’ll still be vibing off last week’s Lunar New Year that ushered in the year of the Water Rabbit, welcoming partnerships, diplomacy, and ingenuity. You get the most done when you collab with other people, and work hardly seems like work when you hang out with groups that match your positive energy.
Luck is definitely on your side during Tuesday’s promising sextile between the vibrant sun (our guiding light) and generous Jupiter (the planet of destiny), so you won’t have to do much to attract amazing things. This is the time to fit the phrase “everything just works out for me” into your inner dialogue ‘cause, during this fortunate aspect, it’s totally true!
On Thursday kind Venus (the planet of pleasure) pairs up with dreamer Pisces, painting colorful, playful visions of cartoon hearts, rainbows, and unicorns onto your daily canvas. You refuse to be a pessimist during this lofty transit, and you’d rather admit to having your head in the clouds than say or think anything nasty or depressing.
A social trine between the dynamic sun and take-charge Mars (the driven planet) shows up on Sunday, encouraging you to end the week with some fun time out with friends. There’s no reason to stay home dreading Monday when you could be out enjoying some pre-workweek distractions. Suggest a casual meetup in a group text and see who shows up. Then go with the flow and see where it takes you!
Your Zodiac Sign’s Weekly Horoscope
It’s against your fiery Aries nature to adapt to a more laid-back vibe, but we bet you can do it if you really try! Actually, the whole point of this week is that you don’t really have to make much of an effort. Even if relaxing, sitting back, and waiting for things to come to you instead of going out and pursuing them isn’t one of your strengths, you might enjoy being in the passenger seat for a bit. Give it a whirl, Aries!
You can really get into living a laidback life of luxury, Taurus, so no one’s going to find you complaining about the free-flowing positive vibes that surround you for most of the week. It might take you a minute to get out of work mode, but once you do, you’re on board with relaxing and enjoying life 100 percent. Is there such a thing as being too self-indulgent? It’s a privilege to be able to find out!
You love the social vibe of the week, Gemini, especially since you’re typically the first and last to leave the party. There’s no pressure on you to perform or be “on,” but your charm still makes you the center of attention in most places you go. Your curiosity drives you to try to uncover the mysteries of the Universe now, but even your deep dives into the unknown are relatively effortless. You can’t really explain it, but good things just seem to happen to you while you’re on the way to your next great adventure!
Your heart of gold shines a little brighter with the positivity radiating from the Universe this week. For the first time in a long time, Cancer, you might feel like your dreams do have a chance to come true. Yes, the struggle has been real, but for now, you should have some time to set aside your doubts and believe in yourself and the goodness of others. You really need this uplifting recharge.

Leo, you’re no stranger to positivity, but everything seems just that much brighter this week, which you love and totally embrace. Never one to turn down the spotlight, you welcome your chance to bathe in the intense light that the universe bestows on you as it encourages you to show off your talents effortlessly. It won’t take much to make others see what you see when you look in the mirror! #Pureroyalty
Virgo, you live to work and be of service to others, so you can’t help but get a little panicky when you hear that it might be time to relax and take some time off. The last thing we want you to do now is stress, of course, but yes, you probably won’t be called on to do as much as you normally do this week, and that’s okay. Laying low and taking some time to yourself doesn’t make you any less important, valuable, or needed. We promise.
You usually have an easy time seeing the beauty in the world, Libra. This week everything seems even brighter, prettier, and more dazzling than usual. Including yourself! You radiate confidence now, which makes other people want to be near you. Your chosen aesthetic is alluring and draws people in, allowing you to make new friends or maybe even fall into a new romantic entanglement. Life is good.
When things are going well, Scorpio, don’t look for ways to F them up! You can be quite the pessimist at times, and being one this week will definitely be a huge buzzkill. There’s nothing worse when everyone’s having a good time than pointing out what could (but probably won’t) go wrong. Your control issues make it hard for you to totally relax sometimes, but there’s no better time to let go and trust that the universe has your back than this week.

The universe is giving you a pass on a lot of things that would normally cause you stress this week, Sagittarius, and less time spent on responsibilities and “have to’s” means more time for adventures. Woohoo! Solo journeys are life-altering now, but group outings can also be enlightening. Luck is definitely on your side, and you have plenty of encouragement from those who matter. As long as you have some good karma built up, you’re unstoppable.
“Relaxed” and “laid-back” aren’t really how anyone would describe you on a typical day, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t capable of being those things. Right, Capricorn?! You are sometimes one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. This is a good time to let loose and show that you have a whole other side to you. Show you have a chill mode by leaving on your gym clothes to run your errands instead of changing in the locker room. Or tell a dirty joke. Or leave work early (gasp). Even if none of those actions show who you truly are, it’s fun to keep people guessing!

Your sign practically invented the laidback attitude, so you won’t have difficulty adjusting to the carefree vibrations sent out by the universe this week, Aquarius. Your ability to remain objective, unemotional, and relatively removed from drama and chaos makes you seem like you were born calm and that’s okay! No one has to know that sometimes you have to work at it. But not this week. This week you’ll master the art of being chill so well that you could teach a class on it!
The one major planetary movement this week involves you, gentle Pisces, which is an excellent indication that everything is going to work out just fine for you. As one of the most intuitive members of the zodiac you of course do believe in signs, so you’ll be looking for those synchronistic little clues that tell you it’s okay to relax and let go of your worries. It might take a minute to recognize them, but once you do, you’ll see little reminders everywhere that life can be magical and amazing without putting in a ton of effort.
