Horoscope Weekly Jan. 11 – 17
By Samantha Perkins
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19) – This week, you’ll want to take the world by storm! Now is a perfect time to charge ahead on those new ideas you’ve been pondering. Keep up that can-do attitude as the week continues, and don’t be afraid to use the people around you to get what you want, they’re there to help. Just make sure not to neglect your friends and family, they may feel left out. You’ll be forced to slow down towards the end of the week because a real problem may arise. Resist the urge to stop the problem in its tracks. Let it burn out on its own.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) – Be cautious this week, as risks and rewards may be hard to tell apart. By the middle of the week, a person in a position of power may be pushing you over the edge. They’re provoking you on purpose, so don’t let it get to you. You have a few friends who are experiencing the same thing, and you could all benefit from blowing off some steam. With that in mind, why not plan a get-together for the weekend? That way everybody can relax and share some laughs once the week’s behind you.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 21) – It’s wise to restrain yourself this week and bite your tongue while others make some choices you don’t agree with. Allow your friends to learn from their own mistakes. In doing so, you will distance yourself from some, but grow closer to others. Something confusing may happen to you on Wednesday or Thursday, but it’s best to just watch from the sidelines and not get involved. This weekend, satisfy some creative urges by visiting a museum, going to a concert, or creating your own kind of art.
Cancer (Jun 22-Jul 22) – Feel free to focus on yourself at the beginning of the week, you’re in need of some TLC. Some problems in your social life have got you over-thinking, so try to restore your positive energy by treating yourself well. Don’t worry if you feel like spending time alone as the week progresses, it’s okay to turn down invitations to give yourself space. By the time the weekend comes around, your good energy will return and you’ll want to spend some quality time with your best friends.
Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22) – Thoughts of that special someone will stick with you all week long, giving you an energy boost when things turn dull and encouragement when that homework load piles up. Expect a bit of travel early in the week. You won’t be going too far, but it’ll reawaken that wanderlust you thought you had lost. As the week ends, make sure your pride doesn’t get in the way of a relationship. It’s best for you to listen and stay calm. Sometimes things aren’t always about you.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22) – You’re always rushing around, trying to get things done, but lately you’ve felt like people are getting in your way. But are they really? Try doing things at a slower pace this week and see how it feels. A family obligation may cause a bit of conflict. Take a risk and suffer the consequences (which won’t be that bad). Be kind in your assessment of others. Just like you, they’re doing the best they can.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22) – Look for new experiences and innovative ideas throughout the week. You’re starving for new information, so feed it anything that makes you curious. Even if some bad memories from your past resurface towards the middle of the week, you should be able to see them in a new way and learn from them. Over the weekend, get involved with something that helps make the world a more beautiful place. Invest your time doing some community service, perhaps.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21) – You’ve got good instincts, Scorpio, and it’s important to remember that this week. People may encourage you to just “go with the flow,” but you know what’s best for you, so listen to your heart. Your ambition may override your self-control as the week wears on. You’re working closely with an influential person who’s good at making empty promises, so proceed with caution. There’s some negative energy around your home as the week draws to a close. It may be better to stay out of the house over the weekend.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21) – You’re going to have a week full of warm, fuzzy feelings. If you feel it, say it. Those are the words you should live by throughout this week. You may be worried about a lack of money this week, but small adjustments, such as making your own lunches for a while, will help out a lot. By the time the weekend rolls around, you may feel a little emotionally exhausted, but that shouldn’t stop you from having fun. Make plans with your friends and share a few laughs.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19) – You’re a perfectionist, and that may come in handy this week as a few challenges will arise right at the beginning of the week. You’ll need to stick to your plans to get everything done. Luckily, you’ll be able to lighten towards the end of the week, and everyone seems to be praising your accomplishments. It’s nice to bask in a job well done every once in a while. The positive feedback will give you a much-needed boost of energy, which will propel you into a great weekend. Use this energy to do something fun and active. Go dancing, go for a run with friends, maybe go ice skating. You’ll be up for anything.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) – This week is full of opportunity for you! You can make amazing things happen this week. If you spend some time participating in group activities, your communication skills will be strong. As the week continues, you’ll get a nice burst of energy that will drive you to explore new things and contemplate making a big change in your life. Make sure you have a plan for making that change, though or it’ll never work out the way you want it to. Watch your financial situation as you enter into the weekend. Maybe you should do something with friends that doesn’t cost money, like have a Netflix marathon or a sleepover with a best friend.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20) – You’ll be met with a disagreement at the beginning of the week. Make sure to stand up for what you believe in, even if those in positions of power may disagree. Luck will be on your side, just be sure to be diplomatic. You’ll need to choose your words carefully. Some of your lesser-used skills will come in handy when a friend calls on you for help. Once their problem is solved, you’ll feel all warm and fuzzy after a job well done. Spend the weekend treating yourself, because after the week you had, you deserve it.
