Weekly Horoscope for Jan. 12-18

Looking for the previous weekly horoscope?

Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Leo
More dramatics than what could be described as the usual might show up. Try to see the humorous side of things.

Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Virgo
Virgo energy is good for sorting through and clearing out your filing cabinet or your computer files or your closet.

Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Libra
The down side of Libra is the tendency to go in the direction of peace at any price. The up side is the ability to be honest while using tact and diplomacy. The Moon of course, with its emphases on emotions, prefers the latter.

Saturday: the Moon is in Scorpio
This weekend could go to an extreme in one of two ways – either you can maintain a withdrawn, reclusive state, or you will have to come charging in with your sword drawn to save the day.

When reading this weekly horoscope, check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well. For example, the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain – however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place…then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place…have a party! Don’t have an astrology chart? Click here .

It is interesting to note when the current Moon is in the same sign as your birth Moon and to see how the flavor of that day carries through the following 30 days.

Current Planet Positions:
Sun –
Capricorn until Jan. 21
Mercury –
Capricorn until Jan. 17, then Aquarius
Venus – Pisces until Feb. 8
Mars – Sagittarius until Feb. 16
**Jupiter – Capricorn until Dec. 20
**Saturn – Capricorn until Dec. 17
Uranus –
Taurus until Apr. 26, 2026
Neptune – Pisces until Mar. 30, 2025
**Pluto – Capricorn until Nov. 20, 2024

**Note: Saturn & Pluto (the two astrological heavy-hitters) are in Capricorn until mid-Dec. 2020. Regard and carry out your responsibilities seriously. You may have to reconstruct part or all of your foundation.

Jupiter is now in Capricorn and will mellow some of the Saturn situations as it joins that planet for the rest of its transit.

Additionally, keep in mind that Capricorn is Saturn’s home base sign and that accomplishments and achievements are likely, so give yourself praise where praise is due.

Current Asteroid Positions:
Ceres –
Capricorn until Feb. 1
Pallas –
Sagittarius until Jan. 19
Juno – Libra until Sept. 21
Vesta –
Taurus until Mar. 22
Chiron – Aries until May 2027

Current Asteroid Transits:
Ceres A situation loaded with responsibility may come your way.
Pallas –
Further education, especially education on a higher level, will be quite beneficial.
Juno – With the partnership asteroid (Juno) in the sign that rules love commitments (Libra), there is a year-long emphasis on those two things.
Vesta – Commit to a long-term passion that you may have put to the side but that now could open up your life in some way.
Chiron – Release pent-up anger; chart a new course for yourself.

 Weekly horoscope time frames for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).

▪ v/c = Void-of-Course – When the Moon is void-of-course, spend time working on projects already in progress, creative endeavors, or self-improvement. Void-of-course simply means that no planets are aspecting the Moon as it gets ready to change signs; there won’t be a configuration of astro energy available to utilize. It’s best not to start new projects, sign important agreements, or go shopping when the Moon is void-of-course because the result will probably be unsatisfactory in some way.

∗Mercury Retrograde – the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the ‘fritz’ during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. (Read More about Mercury Retrograde)
