With the Moon in Aries aligning with Uranus and Pluto we could feel rebellious and keen to follow a more independent course of action.
However, with a Quarter Moon also on the cards today it can pay to give some thought to any key decisions first and to make sure they are in our best interests. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Wednesday 5th January 2017 please see below...
Horoscopes Thursday 5th January 2017
Aries 21 March - 20 April
There may be certain responsibilities to tackle, but you might not feel like dealing with them if you have something more interesting in mind. If they're important though it may be best to push on and get them sorted. The current backdrop suggests you may crave freedom from too many demands, but if there are duties to fulfil then getting these out of the way can prove a relief.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
With the Moon in a more secluded sector of your chart forging key angles, you may find it's easier to make an important decision by paying attention to your emotions. If you know the outcome you want and it feels right to you, consider going ahead. However, there's a suggestion you might not be certain about what's best to do. If so, do give yourself the time you need.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
You could feel determined to stick to a course of action, even if you sense that it may not be the best one. It could be that the outcome you seek is a good one, but the way you're approaching this might benefit from some fine tuning. One area where it might help to question your plans could concern finances, where the cosmos hints that better options may be available.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
A Quarter Moon in your sector of goals can encourage a decision, and it may concern whether to go solo with a project or involve another. This might not be something to take lightly, and careful thought may be required. It could be more a question of choosing the right person or people, as they may be an asset whether your goal is a personal one or more career orientated.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
You could be tempted by all kinds of distractions, perhaps as a way to avoid dealing with something that should be dealt with. And who could blame you, when there might be more interesting things that you could be doing. Nevertheless, if you're feeling that sense of urgency today, then it may be a signal to get it over and done with, so you can move on unhindered.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
With Mercury your personal planet, back in your home zone for a brief stay, you may find yourself drawn into a family discussion or reconnecting with a relative you haven't heard from of late. This could be the perfect time to catch up, but more may emerge from this too, as it can be an opportunity to rebuild a relationship that might be a valuable asset to you in the future.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
The recent holidays may have proved a distraction for you Libra, but the coming days can see you keen to normalise things, and you might feel like making a start by taking down decorations and getting your home space organised. Even so, other people could prove a pleasant diversion with their ideas, perhaps adding a fresh slant to a fun project or even to a key issue.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
It can be frustrating when things don't go to plan, but if you can be flexible over the next day or so you can turn this to your advantage. Other factors could come into play that you might not have considered, putting things in a different light. Your horoscope suggests a developing friendship may also become more supportive and could be soon something to cherish and really enjoy.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Taking the time to reaffirm a household arrangement or to revisit a conversation with a family member can mean the difference between experiencing one or two hitches and things going smoothly. Future plans can seem full of promise, especially around creative ideas. They could involve some sustained dedication on your part, but look to evolve things on a step by step basis.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You may have put a lot of thought into an idea linked with the home, only to find that family members may not agree with you. This could lead to conflict, but it may also be an opportunity to talk things through and find out where you might compromise. Coming days suggest that nothing is set in stone and that with give and take the end result can work well for everyone.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Your inventive side can bring all kinds of ideas into the mix that could add a certain sparkle to the weeks and months ahead. However, it will be impossible to attend to all of them Aquarius. Besides, today's lunar phase hints that deeper processes may be at work when deciding how aspects of the future might pan out, as one outmoded strand may actually need to go.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
You could find the thoughts of a certain friend to be rather conservative, making it difficult to resonate with their point of view over coming days. One particular topic could be a sensitive one for you and them, and caution may need to be exercised around this. You might have to accept that you'll never see eye to eye, but if the friendship is important need this matter?
