October 23 - November 22


Today's Horoscope for Monday January 22nd

You are concentrating on what is essential and practical, and have no intention of wasting words at the moment. What you say will be very much to the point, but there is a risk that you are coming across as too negative, or overly serious. Mars is not the most sensitive of energies and the Moon really needs nurturing and protecting not railroaded into over hasty action. If you can channel your energy in constructive directions, you will achieve a great deal.


The Weekly Outlook from 22nd January

Talking to your nearest and dearest will help sort out any tensions which have been swept under the carpet recently. More sensitive and private than usual, you are tending to retreat into your shell and put up defensive barriers against the outside world. Your long-term security will be important to you so you are pushing hard to acquire more money and possessions. You will fight to defend rights and ensure you get your due rewards.
