This week may be light in astrological activity, especially when compared to last week's crowded calendar, but it's still set to begin with a bang. 

On Monday, courageous Mars in hard-working Capricorn will trine innovative Uranus in dedicated Taurus, urging us to take the plunge when it comes to our passion projects. This is a perfect moment to start working on ideas that truly excite us and branch out of our comfort zones. Keep in mind that patience and diligence will be required to make real progress, but if you're able to maintain your focus and wisely allocate your time and energy, there could be a big payoff in store.  

Then, when communication-ruling Mercury in attentive Capricorn sextiles dreamy Neptune in sensitive Pisces on Friday, you could get inspired to reconnect with your inner creative. This aspect can make it easier for us to access our intuition and imagination, but it can also leave us feeling a bit delicate and vulnerable at times. Remember to practise softness when engaging with others. 

You may find it challenging to think clearly as the emotion-ruling moon wanes into her third quarter in intense Scorpio later on Friday. If you begin to feel restless or find yourself fixating on tying up loose ends, seek to quell your nervous energy by spending time with your loved ones. Your weekend will be best spent relaxing with people who can help you see the bigger picture. 

Here is your horoscope for the week of Monday, January 29, 2024.


It's time to get the ball rolling, Aries. If you've been wondering when or where your next big career opportunity might arise, this is your sign to stop pondering and start taking the lead when it comes to achieving your professional goals. Be ready to pounce at the beginning of the week in particular, as you could discover a new and lucrative way to monetize your talents. Then, come the weekend, you may feel the need to take a step back to relax and reflect on your efforts thus far. Enjoy recuperating with your inner circle as you explore your purpose and potential. 


Have you been itching to improve your professional standing, Taurus? If so, the start of this week could be a brilliant time to invest in further education or find ways to level up your skills. Don't be afraid to shoot for the moon and see where you end up; aiming high can help bring fresh opportunities your way. Then, over the weekend, discussing your ambitions with friends could open your eyes to some smart ways of saving cash that will also make your quest for knowledge more accessible. Asking thoughtful questions will allow you to find the answers you seek.  


Are you ready to tackle your to-do list, Gemini? At the start of the week, your mind will be extra sharp, helping you easily keep track of all the outstanding tasks on your plate.Take advantage of this energy to declutter your space and your schedule so that you can make more time for the activities and interests that excite you. Once you've put in the work to get organized, you'll be free to refocus your attention on your career ambitions this weekend. If you've been toying with starting a new business venture, don't hesitate to confide in your loved ones; they could be the perfect sounding board. 


Discussing your passions with your favourite people could lead to an exciting new work partnership, Cancer. So at the beginning of this week, carve out time to chat with friends about your current goals and ideas. This will also be a wonderful moment to collect fresh inspiration and brainstorm with those you trust. Stay open, as you never know who could be your missing piece. Then, as the weekend approaches, your enthusiasm toward this particular venture could begin to cool off, causing you to redirect your attention toward furthering your education and expertise. Consider where you have room for growth. 


You've got a knack for problem-solving, Leo. But while you're blessed with the ability to quickly combat challenges and see things from multiple sides, you'll still need to apply some extra effort if you want to accomplish your most ambitious goals. Keep that in mind as you plan out your schedule at the start of the week; it's crucial that you hit the ground running to execute your practical solutions. Meanwhile, if you begin to feel a bit stuck in a rut, reflecting on why you're working so hard to reach your professional and financial objectives could help you to adjust your attitude. 


You could have a serendipitous meeting at the start of this week, Virgo. So if you're single, be sure to keep your eyes peeled when going about your daily routines, as you might end up striking up a fiery romance in an unlikely place. Meanwhile, those in relationships may feel inspired to step out of their comfort zone with their partners to explore different cuisines and cultural activities together. Regardless of your romantic status, you'll have a chance to strengthen your bonds this weekend by embracing vulnerability and letting go of your inhibitions. This is a beautiful time to stay in and enjoy the companionship of the people you love. 


Are you ready to imagine new possibilities for your domestic world, Libra? At the start of this week, you may be feeling more playful and eager to let go of your self-imposed limitations, making it an ideal time to dream up solutions for your space. Sharing your vision for your surroundings with the people you trust can be a great way to identify potential blind spots, so don't hesitate to ask for assistance as you create a concrete plan to bring your wildest dreams to life. While you may be prepared to do some heavy-lifting, it's important to remember that you don't have to do it all alone. 


Speak up, Scorpio. If you keep your thoughts to yourself at the beginning of the week, you could end up missing out on a fantastic opportunity to reconnect with people you love. Consider how working to strengthen your bonds can enrich your home life and even optimize your day-to-day routines. This will be a beautiful time to invite your loved ones to join you in fun and energizing activities that support your healthy lifestyle. Then, when the weekend arrives, you could feel inspired to embark on an adventure that'll get your creative wheels turning. Don't be afraid to let others take the lead with planning; it could open you up to fresh experiences. 


Where do you want to spend your energy, Sagittarius? At the start of this week, exchanging productivity tips and tricks with your co-workers could help you unlock your true potential, and perhaps even discover some new ways of building your wealth. But while the options may seem limitless at first, achieving success will still require precise focus. Start by picking one concrete goal to work toward as you begin to forge this new path to security and abundance. Then, come the weekend, you'll be eager to really experiment with options for your professional life, and share your findings with your nearest and dearest. 


Are you bubbling with fresh inspiration for your space, Capricorn? You'll be wise to carve out some time to discuss your vision with your loved ones at the beginning of this week. Getting their insights on how you might elevate your home could even help you come up with ways to save money as you design your dream dwelling. Remind yourself of this if you feel tempted to start breaking ground. Then, toward the end of the week, your focus could begin to shift to your personal wellness goals. Reflect on how you can work to streamline your day-to-day schedule while creating better habits. 


Have you been dreaming of days gone by lately, Aquarius? At the start of this week, indulging in a little nostalgia could inspire you to make some significant changes to your home. So if you've been itching to refresh your surroundings, seize this opportunity to discover budget-friendly solutions through thrifting, vintage shopping or flipping through old magazines and photo albums. Meanwhile, chatting with friends about their habits and routines might give you the urge to make some radical adjustments to your day-to-day schedule. But instead of attempting to do everything at once, try to cherry-pick a few helpful practices that you can stick to.


Don't be afraid to take risks when it comes to your passion projects, Pisces. While not every idea will stick, exploring them could open you up to exciting opportunities to collaborate and make money. Remember this if a friend seeks out your creative opinion at the beginning of the week; the conversation could pave the way for a lucrative new venture. Then, as the weekend approaches, you'll be ready to put the business-talk on hold and host a cosy get-together with your favourite people. Soothe your circle's spirits by assembling a playlist that everyone will enjoy.
