Over the next three weeks, you'll likely feel frustrated by unpredictable people (no matter how attractive they may be), so focus instead on people who have already proven you can depend on them. On Thursday, a dramatic full moon in Leo stirs up big, loud emotions. It's important to express how you're feeling right now, but it's better to confide in someone you trust than to shout it from the rooftops. Finally, late Friday night, Uranus retrograde ends. As the planet of progress and revolution begins to move forward again, you may feel shifting or imbalanced within yourself. Don't back away from change; Do your best to face it with courage and a sense of adventure. In the meantime, find your weekly horoscope for each zodiac sign below.
You care deeply about doing the right thing. Certainly more than they give you credit for. You want to be a good person, and leave your little corner of the world better than you found it. Lately, though, it's been hard to imagine what that looks like, and what that is means On a practical level. I felt confused, even frozen at times. Finally, this week you will find the inspiration you need to move forward despite the uncertainty surrounding you. You may stumble, but at least you'll gain momentum in the end.
It may be difficult for you to trust your instincts. Your inner critic is loud and persistent, yelling at you to take heed and step back.

Don't worry too much about making mistakes. You'll find out how to fix it. When you encounter a misunderstanding, you will put things right. You are much more capable and powerful than you realize.
The greater your ambitions, the easier it is for you to become discouraged in your pursuit of them. Instead of seeing everything you have achieved, you focus on how far you still have to go. Instead of appreciating everything you've learned, you emphasize how much you don't know yet. And when you look at all the work ahead of you, you may feel like you'll never get it done. The best thing you can do this week is to stop looking ahead. You can find magic in the small, seemingly insignificant moments, if you slow down and look from the path you are on.

However, you have an opportunity this week to make connections with those who will Appreciate you – and not just when it suits them. Maybe you'll just meet someone new Obtains Maybe you'll find a new balance with an old friend after an honest conversation. Whatever the case, you can build bridges. You will find the support you have been missing.
Every once in a while, you have the fear that just by being yourself, you'll become “too much” — too loud, too sexy, too demanding. People have probably told you the same thing in the past. Although it's important to be considerate of others and remember that the world doesn't revolve around you, that doesn't mean you have to downsize yourself or pretend to be someone different. Let your bright and warm energy shine this week.
Spending time and energy thinking about — or worse, talking about — your feelings feels self-indulgent at best, and a complete waste at worst. Given the choice, you would rather focus on doing something of value for the world outside yourself. But processing your feelings this week will help you help others. If you're like one big nerve, it's easy to unintentionally hurt yourself and the people around you. So take some time to rest. Lean into your heart. Get in touch with feelings you might prefer not to deal with. It's not selfish. It is difficult and important work.
This week you may feel like everything is on your shoulders. Not just at work, but in your personal life as well: Your friends look to you to make plans, host gatherings, and keep the conversation flowing. It's understandable, considering how good you are at it. But it gets tiring (even for you) so don't try to do it all yourself. Remember, you are allowed to withdraw, go home early, and delegate responsibility. Your friendships won't suffer. Changing their routine may strengthen them.
For some time now, you've been settling for less than you need, especially in close relationships. Normally you would ask for more — or at least start a conversation — but lately, you don't have that kind of money anymore. This week, he spoke out. Change comes no matter what you do, so you can also take ownership of what happens next. It is up to you to direct your life in the direction you want. If the road ahead is bumpy, at least you'll be in the driver's seat.
You will feel your sense of adventure come alive this week. You are ready to start something new. The key for you is not to bite off more than you can chew. Don't sign a long-term project if all you really want is a few exciting days; Be careful not to make promises that you will not want to keep later. Your spontaneity is great, but when it comes to commitments, do so with a cool head.
Although you may pretend not to care what others think, the truth is that you want to be appreciated and thought well of. It hurts when your hard work goes unnoticed, when your jokes go unrecognized, or when others don't seem to understand. You or even try to. Sometimes, feeling ignored motivates you to try harder, but just as often, it makes you want to retreat into yourself. This week, no need to worry. Relationships will affirm you, and you can feel comfortable in your social circle.
There is nothing boring in your inner life. Your mind is full of far-fetched theories and ambitious plans for the future. Even your daydreams are wonderful. Don't rely on others to bring excitement; You're doing just fine on your own. But you are independent, you still need conversation and human connection. This week, make sure to get out of your head. Let people surprise you. Let your mind change. Don't worry about being too influenced by others, you won't lose what makes you tick You. This is an opportunity to achieve a healthy balance.
Maybe Mercury and Mars in Capricorn are dragging you down, and maybe it's only January, but you're bored. The chores and routines that make up your days hold no excitement, and you yearn for something greater and more important. Expect the fog to lift this week, not because of some great new adventure, but because of a shift in perspective. Small talk can lead to a real connection. You can find a sense of purpose again in work that seemed so boring yesterday. There's no need to travel to the ends of the earth to find excitement.
