Horoscopes for January 18 to January 24

By: MARY MORRISON

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

Romance is in the air this weekend, particularly for the unattached, as the Sun enters your sign on Sunday. The Moon’s aspect to Mercury opens the communication channels among friends and family. Saturn and Jupiter are in brilliant aspect on Monday, giving your business prospects a good start for the week ahead. You may want to take a chance on Tuesday when an opportunity arises. A surprise visitor might throw things out of kilter on Wednesday.

PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

Your plans for the weekend are likely to go without a hitch. The Moon’s influence should spread a little harmony around your domain on Saturday. Sunday evening holds the promise of romance for any unattached who might be in search of a mate. Monday morning is a good time to get to grips with your finances and perhaps consider your career prospects. The week will encourage you to make decisions that could bring you more security and stability.

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)

Your prospects look quite bright for this week. Saturday’s Moon highlights the need for clarity of vision before you make any final decision. However, Saturn’s influence will no doubt ensure that your feet are on the ground before you commit yourself. If you happen to be unattached and looking for a partner, you may be lucky on Wednesday evening. Thursday’s Moon is favourable to Pluto, which will help you deal with those in authority positions.

TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)

Chances are that you will find yourself involved in a spot of bother between two parties who may expect you to act as referee. If you can endeavour to remain detached, your common sense will no doubt prevail on Saturday, in allowing you to bow out gracefully! Monday’s aspect is likely to lend support to an idea for a business venture. There are one or two loose ends that will need to be tied up and Tuesday is a good day to write the last chapter.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 21)

You might have been experiencing delays of one sort or another, which can lead to a degree of frustration. However, the influence of Jupiter’s brilliant aspect to Saturn should turn your situation around and get things moving forward this week. Monday is favourable for finalising any contracts that might be pending or agreements that are waiting confirmation. The unattached may encounter romance on Thursday when the Moon makes overtures to Pluto.

CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)

You seem to be faced with a choice that may be difficult to make right now but the longer you procrastinate over the matter the tougher it will be in the long run. Jupiter’s aspect to Saturn on Monday will help to point you in the right direction by sending you a clear message. Romance is in the air and could begin through an unexpected meeting on Tuesday’s Full Moon. Thursday is a good time to raise funds for a business project.

LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)

There are times when you feel you are the only person in your domain who gets things done. This may have something to do with the fact that you take everything on without thinking twice and do whatever needs to be done before others have time to think about it! It is time to let go and hand over the responsibility a willing recipient. Your financial prospects are likely to improve this week thanks to the steadying influence of Jupiter’s aspect to Saturn.

VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)

You seem to have made a u-turn which, it appears, has backfired on you, somewhat. Perhaps you need to be a little more assertive in your dealings with others and not allow their entreaties to distract you from taking the right action. Monday morning is likely to bring an opportunity to extract yourself from a tricky situation and Tuesday’s Full Moon will help you to stand firm. Thursday’s Moon will shed the light of romance on the lonely heart.

LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)

The scales have been a bit up and down, leaving you feeling a little unsettled in the scheme of things. This might have led you into a state of indecision and doubt, even mistrust of your judgement. You should be able to free yourself from this particular malaise when Monday brings you some good news that you can rely on. The Full Moon on Tuesday could stir up a storm in your solar house of ambition and spur you on to greater things in your career.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)

Your energy is likely to return this weekend, putting you in the mood for entertainment. Saturday is a good time to throw a party and open the door to the world. Monday is likely to bring you into contact with influential people and enable you to play your trump card. The Full Moon on Tuesday bodes well for travellers whatever their purpose, business or pleasure. The unattached are likely to benefit from the Moon’s aspect to Venus on Thursday.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)

Your sense of humour will always serve you well as you have the knack of turning tragedy into farce at the drop of a hat, as Saturday will demonstrate. Others will applaud you when your quick thinking saves the day. Monday favours those involved in business or legal transactions when Jupiter is in harmony with Saturn. You may find your patience wearing thin with younger family members on Tuesday’s Full Moon. Counting to 10 might do the trick.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)

Things should go well for you this week and everything appears to be under control at present. Your plans for the weekend are likely to go without a hitch and there is a degree of harmony in your domain. Monday’s aspect between Jupiter and Saturn is extremely beneficial for land development and projects that involve property and home improvements. Take care when dealing with neighbours, particularly where boundaries are concerned.
