Horoscopes Monday 2nd January 2023
Aries 21 March - 20 April
If you're shopping in the sales, today's bend of nebulous aspects suggests checking you really are getting a deal. Even if someone in the know insists it's a bargain, do your own research. At least be sure to keep receipts and paperwork so you can take it back. Plus, the Sun's angle with Chiron, hints at an opportunity to make peace with someone you may have fallen out with, Aries.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Just because someone says something is true, doesn't mean it is. It might be wise to check any information, as with Neptune ties showing, even trusted friends can get things wrong. This also applies to anything you read online or any schemes that imply instant success. On the plus side, your creative and romantic options are enhanced, so something good could emerge from this.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
If someone shares something in confidence, then keep it to yourself, even though you see little harm in telling others. The Moon and Mercury's link to Neptune, suggests secrets can slip out of the bag which could reflect poorly on you, even if it does happen by accident. If this is someone you're keen to stay on good terms with, then it would be very unwise to jeopardize this bond.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Need to discuss something important? Don't let yourself be persuaded into backing down. If you know the outcome you want, then stick with it, even if others aren't shy about showing their disapproval. A nebulous link could inspire you to use a little charm, but any solutions or compromises need to be aligned with your ideas and principles. Integrity rules at this time.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Go easy around finances, as you might be drawn into a scheme or to purchasing something that could see you losing more than you stand to gain, Leo. You are usually very astute, but on this occasion, you may slip up if it seems especially alluring. Ask questions, even those that might seem a tad embarrassing or obvious, as you'll then know the state of play and what to do next.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
A romance may seem to have wings and be perfect for you, but if you sense an undercurrent then trust your instincts. Today's ethereal line-up can be bewitching, and you might fail to notice some obvious flaws. A little detachment could assist you with seeing the reality of this potential bond, and from there to make an informed decision. Take it a step at a time and see how it goes.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
It may be the start of the week, but with the Moon in a private zone, you might welcome some alone time to get your bearings Libra. If there is a lot going on and you're getting in a muddle, then this can be crucial to getting your priorities in order and enjoying a more successful week. Half an hour may be all you need, and you'll be confident about your intentions going forward.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
You may be keen to help someone out, but are your motives totally pure, Scorpio? Is there a chance that you might be hoping for something in return, or that this person will take more notice of you in the future? If you give because you genuinely want to, then they could sense this, and your efforts will be reciprocated. If you do want something from them, why not ask for it!
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
The Moon in down-to-earth Taurus, encourages you to be realistic about your chances of success. With Neptune in the mix, you could dream of achieving more than is possible or imagine something working out perfectly, even if the chances are slim. It will likely not be as bad as expected, but not as brilliant as you would like, but you can work with this and still succeed.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
The emphasis on your sign is encouraging, although with Mercury rewinding, you'll need to allow more time for things to come together. And with aquatic Neptune in the picture, it helps to check the facts, times of meetings and other key information. Your horoscope suggests that it would be a shame to miss out on an opportunity just because you wrote it down wrong Capricorn, or someone made a mistake.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
The focus on a quiet zone can be a call to take life easier. While you may have a lot to contend with, cooking yourself a wholesome meal, enjoying a relaxing bath or relishing the simple pleasures of life, can recharge your system. New springs of energy could inspire fresh ideas and insights that might help you resolve any awkward issues or current concerns, Aquarius.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
As Mercury retro and the Moon align with Neptune, take whatever you hear with a pinch of salt, Pisces. You'll need to do your own digging if you're going to find out the truth. It's also possible you'll take something the wrong way or mishear it, which could also cause issues. But your creative side will be in full bloom, so using this time to make beautiful things may be healing.
