Weekly Horoscopes • January 23 – 29

ARIES (March 21- April 20)
Dealing with others can put you under a lot of pressure mainly because you will want to focus on the future and they can be very vague. This vagueness is intentional and is being used as a means of either holding things up or avoiding the path they know you want to take. Some sort of ending might be the only solution.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20)
You might need to consider where your priorities could clash with the expectations of somebody else. They may accuse you of promising something other than what they feel you are coming up with. There could be a lack of understanding about goals here. You need to be straightforward with your intended long-term goals.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Don’t feel as though you need to respond instantly to any demands of somebody else especially if this will interfere with obligations you need to see to. It could also be that you are expected to take on commitments that you are not certain you can handle. There is no other way than to be definite in refusing and fighting it out.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)
There is little point in putting work and effort into something that has no clarity with future direction, or you can find yourself working like a slave for no result. The opportunity will be there to gain definite answers but you have to take the action to find the person who can do this in that they understand where your priorities lie.

LEO (July 23-August 22)
Interaction with others is strongly highlighted but you should not be tempted to launch into matters of pleasure or risk taking that might seem appealing on the spur of the moment. This can include taking any financial risks that someone else might encourage or suggest. You need to keep details and routines under control.

VIRGO (August 23-Sept. 22)    
It can be difficult to get agreement from others when it comes to the things you want to put in place. This could include situations involving home and family. You could find them avoiding matters in a very subtle manner. To get a response, your best line of action would be to restrict something of pleasure that is important to them.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
It will be difficult to push yourself when it comes to sorting out the details or getting a better routine in place. More information might be what you need. Putting your energy into this can feel more satisfying and eventually bring you to a point of having the right answers. You will feel content knowing how to move ahead.

SCORPIO (Oct.  23-Nov. 21)   
Something could cost more than you expected which might lead you to wonder whether it is really necessary. If it is to do more with pleasure than anything else, it probably isn’t necessary. Any changes you decide to make could result in some rebellion from somebody else, which might surprise you. It can be sorted though.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Before you rush into anything be sure you are clear on the way this can be put into place, especially if it involves family in any way. Any lack of clarity will greatly hinder the ability to move forward. You could discover that attempting to alter the status quo when it comes to old routines might very well be the underlying problem.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
This is an important time in your life and this week you could be mentally frustrated about not being clearer in your mind about matters. There are certain things that are not evident just yet and you need to be patient about letting them come to the surface in their own time, as they will. In the meantime keep gathering information.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Before you spend money on anything frivolous you should consider how long the appeal would last. It might only serve to make you regret not having that money available for other things later. Any involvement with friends or a group of people could produce some tensions especially if they cause disruption to your security.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
There will be little to encourage practicality but every reason to escape things of little appeal. That is fine if you are truly in a position to do so but important obligations should not be avoided or you will be left feeling very disappointed. The best thing would be to put a little time aside for escape from any harsh reality.
