Horoscope for the Week: January 6, 2023

Tip of the Week:

The first Full Moon of 2023 takes place on January 6 at 16 Cancer 22. It is the culmination of the New Moon in Capricorn which occurred on December 23. In the article for that event, which you can read on my website, I wrote the following: ‘Specifically, the Capricorn New Moon chart emphasizes quality over quantity, even amidst the prospects of practical ambitions. Quality, here, includes meaningful contribution, authentic self-actualization, commitment to higher truths and ideals, and gratitude for life itself, all of which can be understood as spiritual themes.’ So, this presents an opportunity to observe these themes manifesting generally in society and hopefully more specifically in your own life. We are of course contending with Mercury retrograde which is also in Capricorn, so this could produce a blend of added focus but more anxiety. Venus in Aquarius indicates the likelihood of alternative approaches and the growing reality of A.I. and eCommerce. This week’s Horoscope emphasizes the Capricorn/Cancer axis of the current New and Full Moon cycle.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Assessing your current social and professional status is in the spotlight. Your focus has been somewhat soberly engaged in this regard for some weeks. Taking a traditional approach may not prove to produce confidence so you will be taking an innovative approach and everyone at home needs to understand.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)

You have been focused on seeing a bigger picture. This probably worked initially, but it may seem like you are contending with fog obscuring your vision. Positively, this is leading you to get imaginative regarding the possibilities. Your confidence levels may feel a bit shaky, but by February all will be… clearer.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

Some important changes transpired over the festive season. Certain traditions may have been interrupted possibly never to return to be what they once were. Positively, this has moved you to look forward to alternative options. Focus on what makes you personally feel secure and pay attention to the finer details.

Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)

Some new seeds of possibility were planted in your relationship life. These could well be primarily directed to your public and professional life. Some measure of delayed reaction should be more noticeable now. Focusing to maintain your equilibrium is ideal yet requires you to advance, if slowly.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)

Changes in your lifestyle will be evident by now. This could include commitment to a healthier diet or daily routine. Positively, you feel more disciplined and committed than you have been able to in this regard in the past. Your willingness to make changes to be healthier and more confident will have a positive impact on others.

Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)

A strong, creative impulse has been guiding your focus for a couple of weeks now especially. This focus continues and includes innovative approaches designed to emphasize your sense of individuality and unique approach. Your determination to be authentically you will bring rewards, so decipher what this means.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

Some important changes close to home were activated by the recent New Moon. These include a slow but sure progression to do things differently, to break with tradition. In some respects, this has produced some complications, but your best bet is probably to not overanalyze the matter and follow through.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

The seeds of new perspectives have been germinating for a couple of weeks now. The question is: are you resisting it or are you working to support the process? Say yes to new opportunities, if simply to take a closer look. Trust what is happening but reserve the right to have the final word.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

A growing determination to feel solid in 2023 should already be evident. This includes a willingness to consider alternative interpretations and approaches. A learning curve is implied, but it may remain a little unclear what exactly it involves unless they began last year. Change is in the air – embrace it!

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

A new impulse to express yourself more assertively is underway. Already it should be revealing signs of growth such as in the way of new relationship opportunities. Building upon new foundations continues and requires you to pay your dues, but also includes a revision of your priorities.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)

Often, new ideas are formulated behind the scenes and this is likely to be one of those times. It is possible that you have not been aware of them, but that is changing now. Changes in your daily rhythm are probably the most noticeable. Trust this process as it indicates feeling both more solid and advancing to the next level.

Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)                

Your sense of individuality received a boost over the 2-3 weeks. Expressing yourself differently or taking new approaches to existing business and interests are examples of this. The emphasis now is upon pursuing your creative interests and professional ambitions with added determination.
