This week's potent Aquarius New Moon also sees Mars power into one of its two home zones of Aries. This can create a sense of new beginnings and fresh energies as much as anything, but there can also be certain other situations, especially around close relationships which will need grappling with. For your FREE Weekly Horoscope 23rd January 2017 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
All this week, Venus the planet of love is going to be squaring up to Saturn the planet of structure. In the first half of the week Mercury is also in conjunction with the dreamy energies of Neptune. Therefore, there could be some doubts, confusion or some home truths shared around a key relationship. But your future direction can yet be reinforced by a lovely New Moon.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Friendships can be the source of great inspiration this week, but not everyone you encounter will necessarily share the same values as you. In fact, there could even be a little bit of jealousy washing around. With this in mind, give people the benefit of the doubt, but at the same time if you're planning anything, if need be, do take a leading role and steer things the way you want.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Someone you encounter professionally, though friendly, may still need to be dealt with in a more formal way. They could be carefully reviewing how you interact, and your ideas need to be realistic and workable to truly win their goodwill and approval. However, with the Sun gaining traction in the most adventurous of sectors, planning a holiday or a new approach can appeal.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Your imagination can be absolutely awesome this week. And your appreciation of film, drama, the arts and anywhere you visit can be greatly enriched. If you encounter anyone new, particularly anyone you might be attracted to, do though, consider if they would realistically blend with you in an everyday way. Long-term financial and property considerations are also to the fore.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Saturn continues to forge some very positive angles which can help you to open up your prospects step-by-step. However, it does also forge a jarring link to the beguiling energies of Venus this week, and as much as the new moon in your sector of relating sees you wanting to think the best about others, it's also going to be very important to be realistic about them too, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Someone very alluring can capture your imagination this week. Are they for real or not? If you are unsure, proceed carefully. Continue to engage but try to get a clearer idea of where they're coming from. In an existing relationship, if someone is full of charm but yet somehow illusive, consider what their motives may really be. Need to get a health plan on track? Now's your chance.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Your ruling planet Venus is challenged by the rather restrictive influence of Saturn. With Neptune also engulfing the more logical energies of Mercury, you may find it difficult to maintain your boundaries should anyone seek to tap into your natural goodwill. However, your physical vitality, personality power and drive are all given an incredible boost by the wonderful New Moon.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
This is perhaps not the best of weeks to be rather frivolous with your resources. Yet despite this, there may be something that really captivates your interest that you do actually want to invest some money into. But whatever it is that might intrigue you, calculate its benefit to you from the viewpoint of the emotional and physical security this will help to guide your moves best of all.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Someone close to you may have expectations that you find a little bit difficult to fulfil this week. In fact, the whole realm of emotions, family and home life could leave you feeling rather drained and overwhelmed. What can assist your situation this week is an increase in mental energy and for some, even the consideration of a new vehicle or tech device.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Someone may hint at something this week, but not necessarily come out and say so directly. In fact, you could be on the end of some mixed messages. It's also possible that an old situation can rear its head once more, or that despite your best endeavours, someone seems somewhat out of reach. Try to stay available yourself and keep the lines of communication open.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Someone's integrity can be somewhat less than robust this week, and could make any discussion over a financial matter challenging. But keep the faith, for the Aquarius New Moon in your sign is a wonderful opportunity to recast your personal identity and live your life in exactly the way you want. Just be sure not to feel compromised around your own values.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Your imagination can continue to be extraordinarily high. However, the same energies that give you this capacity can also see you soaking up energy from around you, and this could diminish your own needs if you encounter anyone who is not good for your psyche. Someone at work can also seem a little harsh. Relationships generally could be somewhat less harmonious.
