Aries Weekly Horoscope
The lunar eclipse in your leisure sector causes everything, even friendships, to feel like they have some sort of deadline or ultimatum. You’re feeling incredibly passionate, and if you’re in a newish relationship, things might be moving fast. Be aware that eclipses tend to cause chaos, and the best option may be to step back, weigh your decisions, and not make any permanent ones this week. You have more time than you think, and the deadlines you think you have may be more suggestions. Breathe!
Taurus Weekly Horoscope
The lunar eclipse on January 31 stirs up tension in your family, and you may be the point person for family members to air their grievances. Try not to get pulled into the drama, especially if it doesn’t involve you. Later in the week, chatty Mercury may suggest a solution or intervention, but for now, disengagement is best. This is especially true if you can’t have a face to face conversation; too much gets lose in texts and voicemails.
Gemini Weekly Horoscope
If you’re not careful, you may be making promises you can’t keep, Gemini. The lunar eclipse exists in your sector of talk and thought, and it’s too easy to get carried away, overcommitting to people or projects. Reign it in. The eclipse may cause some turbulence, either personally or professionally. An opportunity may come your way, or one may end. Go with the flow. Even if something ends up not working out, trust that there will be a Plan B that presents itself soon.
Cancer Weekly Horoscope
Take care with financial matters, as the lunar eclipse in your financial sector may lead to unexpected surprises, charges, or issues. It’s a good time to dogeneral financial maintenance and make sure that you have the start of an emergency fund, and maybe get a head start on your taxes. Not fun, but essential. It’s also important to face up and voice any financial problems—it may be a tough thing to admit, but you’ll feel relieved when you’ve done it.
Leo Weekly Horoscope
This week is a powerful one, especially when it comes to relationships. The lunar eclipse focuses on love, and you may find that love is either beginning, ending, or changing. Don’t ignore your observations or the feelings you have. Things can work out, but things also may have to be set into motion, and you may have to be the one to do so. Whether it’s confrontation, being the first to say “I love you” or otherwise, take the lead. Be brave, Leo!
Virgo Weekly Horoscope
This is an emotional week. You can sometimes be overly practical, pushing aside feelings in favor of action. The eclipse asks you to sit with your feelings, feel discomfort, and move forward. You also may be caught up by past thoughts, emotions, or hurts. Learning how to move beyond them (here’s a primer) can help you distance yourself and move on from the past and focus on the future. The key this week is to let emotions unfold.
Libra Weekly Horoscope
The eclipse in your friendship sector could cause changes in your social life. Maybe you have some new friends, maybe it’s becoming evident that an old friendship is no longer working, or maybe you are realizing that your friends are an important part of your life and you need to schedule accordingly! If it seems a friendship is ending, that’s not a bad thing. Respect moving on, sometimes, more damage can come from trying to hold onto a friendship beyond it’s natural term.
Scorpio Weekly Horoscope
The spotlight is on you, especially with the lunar eclipse focused in your sector of goals and ambition. It’s not all smooth sailing, though. You could be caught in a few political moves at work, and may not get a position, title, or bonus you’d been gunning for—know that this setback is just temporary, and handling the situation with grace is a much better option than getting angry. Again, focus on the future, and try not to get too caught up in the alliances, jockeying, and drama of the here and now.
Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope
The eclipse in your sector of travel and far horizons may cause drama when it comes to travel plans. A last minute adventure may fall in your lap, or you may feel like things for a set trip are now falling apart. Consider this a lesson in going with the flow. Plenty of positive things are also coming your way from the universe, and staying local next weekend may not be a bad thing—the stars portend a magical weekend no matter where you may be.
Capricorn Weekly Horoscope
The lunar eclipse is in your sector of transformation and today may be a week of radical changes, shifts, and moving forward. It may be a time of letting go of other’s expectations, and embracing a more real, authentic you. This change could be physical (hello, unicorn hair streaks!) or far more emotional, or could be a combination of both. Frequent tune-ins to your emotions and well-being are key. Change is good, but change for the sake of change isn’t necessarily what you need right now, Caps.
Aquarius Weekly Horoscope
The lunar eclipse in your sector of relating may test bonds. Empathy is key. You may need to consider other’s POV. Don’t drive conflict if you can help it. Much better to let things lie and allow things to shake out in a few weeks. Right now, know that everyone around you is on edge. On the positive side, this week can be a great time for networking, but in order to be effective, you may have to share some of your vulerabilities. After all, if everything’s “going great!” why would anyone think you may need a job opportunity or intro to a romantic potential? It’s all about honesty.
Pisces Weekly Horoscope
Your energy level may dip this week as the lunar eclipse occurs in your sector of well-being. You’ve been pulled in a lot of different directions, and have loved being able to burn the candle at both ends. But you may feel exhausted this week. Prioritize, say no, and make sure self-care is an important aspect to your week. You need some relaxation and rejuvenation! Seek it out, Pisces.
