Horoscopes Saturday 8th January 2022
Aries 21 March - 20 April
It can help to plan out the days ahead in terms of your most pressing responsibilities. If you don't, then it could be a tad too easy for others to encroach on your time. Developing influences that involve ethereal Neptune, suggests a blurring of boundaries so other people's demands may seem just as important as your most urgent tasks. Put yourself first, and determine to stay in control.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You don't need to masquerade as being someone that you aren't, and yet you might be tempted just to impress a certain person. This could backfire though, especially if you have romantic inclinations towards them. Current influences suggest it can be quite a strain to keep up the faÃ§ade. Be your natural self with them, and if they respond positively, you're already a winner.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Resist the urge to view a situation as a worse-case scenario, as things really may not be as bad as you think. With an edgy aspect stirring up deep-seated issues around survival, it could be so easy to give in to a sense of futility and decide there is no way out. Tomorrow, a solution could be spotlighted by the Quarter Moon, with someone's expertise making it easier to resolve, Gemini.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
If you've had words with someone, now is the time to extend the hand of friendship and let them know that whatever happened, it's all in the past. A harmonious Sun/Venus link in your sector of relating, suggests this can be the perfect time for smoothing things over and reaching a compromise. If you really want this to work though Cancer, something might need to change.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Identify what is important to you, and focus on this to the exclusion of everything else. This is necessary because there could be conflicting demands on your time, and you might get little done if you spread yourself too thin. Calls and unexpected demands can be par for the course today, but if you keep your focus on your top priority, then you will begin to inch ahead, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Not sure why you feel as you do? The current planetary backdrop encourages you to trust your instincts. This can be especially so concerning a project you're itching to take further. If you've been riddled with doubt about this, today's Sun/Venus tie could shed some light on it. Is fear holding you back? Pinpoint why, and you may be able to override it by taking baby steps.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
The planets can encourage you to make more of the talents you were born with, and to ignore those who might criticise you for doing so. The current backdrop might inspire you to strike out in a new direction. Even if you're not sure what this is, the willingness to explore new options could be a game-changer. Don't let self-doubt prevent you from having a go, Libra.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Try not to be thrown by any unexpected news related to a plan you have nurtured. Present influences suggest that although a letter, call or email may come as a surprise, it could contain the seed of an opportunity. On a social note, the Sun/Venus merger suggests you might see someone in a new light. Would this be such a bad thing? Your horoscope suggests that it won't be if it improved your relationship.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
You may get insights into how you could increase your cash flow Archer, perhaps by selling items you no longer use, or by actively marketing your skills and services. And if you can use social media to boost your efforts, then so much the better. A conversation might generate some conflict though, and if both of you stubbornly hold out for what you want, nothing much will change.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
The Sun's link with image-conscious Venus can encourage you to consider a makeover, or perhaps to purchase some new clothes. Go for it, especially if you have an interview coming up or other occasion to attend. But even if you haven't, this could be a real confidence booster. A new look might be a great investment, opening new doors over coming weeks, Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
If you could make sense of an issue, it might reduce tension, leaving you less stressed and better able to get on with things. With Mercury angling towards Uranus, you may need to look at it from a different perspective to get the answers you need. Plus, the Sun/Venus tie can inspire you to be kinder to yourself Aquarius, as you could have a tendency to be your own worst critic.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
It may be helpful not to take what others say too seriously over coming days. With changeable influences showing up, whatever is decided can so easily shift. Nothing is set in stone, and even though someone might make a firm promise, it could be retracted. This is more of an opportunity to brainstorm ideas and solutions that thrill, rather than making a set commitment, Pisces.
