Weekly Horoscopes for January 17 - 24
These horoscopes are published by The Mountain Times, Vermont USA
Regardless of what you’ve got your sights on achieving this year, it takes bravery, courage and the willingness to see things differently to make the choice to change.
Being amped up with an inflated sense of enthusiasm allows us to dream up the impossible and make it possible. Despite the best of intentions, it can be easy to lose sight of what actually takes to go from point A to point B. There will be effort, toil, conflict within yourself (or even with others) and the required compromises to move beyond a comfort zone.
This week, a sudden plot twist, a fork in the road or a surprising turn of events may steer you off course, or prompt the need to make a quick choice. Under this week’s volatile skies, eruptions or explosions are bound to take place. If you’re stuck in a comfort zone, you may make a sudden realization that it isn’t all that comfortable after all. It’s also possible that in order to achieve your dreams for the future, you may have to give up more than you originally anticipated. Bear in mind, if you’re not willing to sacrifice for what you want, what you want will be the sacrifice.
If you know your ascending sign (rising sign) then read that one first!
Are you ready to radically reshape the way you earn, spend and save? This week’s astrology put’s focus on your 2nd house of resources and cash. Some choices will need to be made, especially if the current status quo isn’t getting you to the place you want to be financially, physically or energetically. Taking action on an inspired idea will promote positive progress. Believing in the impossible and shifting your mindset will carry you further into the future than penny-pinching will.
You’re the most reluctant to change out of all of the signs. The funny thing is, when you don’t choose the change, the change chooses you and when that happens, you have no choice! If you can manage it, take a giant leap forward this week. Don’t worry if the ground is there to support you or if there is a guaranteed outcome. There are no guarantees with anything in life, so your best bet is to develop your faith and choose to see things differently. Then take your inspired action.
It can be one of the hardest things to wrap your head around, but to recognize that we are the co-contributors of our own struggle, worry and suffering, it can also be hugely empowering. If there is something that is playing on your mind, or a thought that you think continuously, ask yourself – ‘is this thought even true?’ Chances are it’s not. This week, you’ve got the chance to sever thoughts that hold you back from your own reservoir of power, creativity and personal genius.
You are sentimental by nature and because of that, you can tend to hold on to memories, things and even friends for longer than required. You’ve learned a lot in the last couple of years about relationships, boundaries and the true essence of meaningful relationships. Now, it may be time for you to recognize that some people in your life may be better suited to being a part of your past. Align yourself with the person you’re becoming and seek company, friendships and groups that honor that.
Generally speaking, cool heads do prevail. Then there are other times where you have to allow your passion take the lead in a certain situation or take a risk despite what it may cost. As tensions mount this week, especially at work, a co-worker or team mate may test your patience. If rumblings of change have prompted you to consider a new career path, events this week may force you to take a meaningful step toward what feels authentic and true to you.
If you’ve been feeling restless or agitated recently, you may hit a revelatory moment this week. While it’s one thing to be deep in details, it’s another if it’s not attached to some kind of feeling of meaning and purpose. If you’ve been lacking a sense of purpose and possibility, then a sudden breakthrough may be possible. If there is something you’ve always wanted to know, explore or learn more about, the chance to take a path toward meaningful change may present itself.
A supercharged boost of energy may spur on a new financial cycle for you. For some, this might mean taking on a significant purchase, like a car or home. For others, making the final repayment on a loan or credit card may herald a new cycle of financial freedom. If you find yourself stuck in some kind of financial rut, then remember that what got you here, won’t get you where you want to be. A drastic change may be required.
You value truth, trust and loyalty. However, when it comes to your relationships, you might need authenticity and freedom. Regardless of your current relationship status, you need to shake things up, especially if the routines have grown tired or stagnant. If you need to shake a little salt on your life, then you may have to realize that the freedom you seek, you also need to allow in others. Relinquishing control isn’t easy for you, but will provide the deep intimacy you need.
One thing the pandemic has taught us is the value of rest. Being a proverbial rat continuously spinning its wheels in order to earn a dollar is no way to live. While there are times to knuckle down and get work done, there are others to rest and play. If you’ve begun to realize you’re becoming the rat again, it may be time to radically change the way you’re at service to others and stop biting more off than you can chew.
What are you going to do with this one and precious life? Well, we all know how much you live to work. That being said, what are you doing for fun? For romance? For joy or pleasure? It’s not always an easy question to answer when there are responsibilities to honor and bills to pay. Still, the question begs… This week, take the chance to do something so radically different and out of character that your future self may actually thank you for it.
Sometimes it’s the idea of change that is more exciting than the change itself. Dreaming, concocting and conspiring new ideas and new realities often fill the corners of your mind. However, they are just all pipe dreams unless you make choices and take action. This week, a proverbial volcano may go off, shaking the very foundation of all you hold dear. This isn’t to scare you, but to change you. If you want more freedom and liberation, it’s likely you’ll get it!
If fears, worry and doubt have felt like a heavy burden to bear recently, then the small daily changes you make can help re-inspire you. Taking a different route to work, picking up groceries in a different store or calling a friend instead of messaging them are all ways to help shift a mindset that may be stuck in a negative feedback loop. If it’s change you’re looking for, then you need to be willing to see things differently and then take the inspired action you need.
