This week’s Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius say loud and clear to expect the unexpected. And of course, Happy Birthday Waterpourers

This kinetic and volatile week kicks off with midweek moon in Aries and a bonanza of planetary action involving you with people. People like you with strong opinions. Buttons will be pushed, and dummies spat, but stay classy and refrain from taking the drama bait. Focus on teamwork and cooperation.

A quartet of heavenly bodies in your zodiac sector of success and prestige suggests it’s time to write the list and plot the road map for this year, while being prepared to deviate if adventurous side roads beckon. And why not think big? You can always scale back…

As this week expands your mental viewfinder to infinite capacity, don’t blow your circuits. Stay earthed: eat, hydrate, sleep. Pace yourself. Let ideas spontaneously combust like fireworks; while some will fizzle, others continue to sizzle. Listen for the intuitive hit that’s so strong you can’t ignore it

A good thing home is your happy place Cancerians, because this looks like a peak week to flick the phone to message mode, hang a Do Not Disturb sign on Crab Casa and declare it a drama free zone. Best activity? Long-term planning; so break out those spreadsheets, timelines and projections.

Another exciting, but exhausting, week in Leoland coming right up. The good news? There are no planets retrograde right now, which means an unhindered window of opportunity where excellent progress is possible. Not so abfab? Some harsh reality checks are likely – try not to self-sabotage.

Virgo’s ruler Mercury joining a trio of planets  in your astrological sector of health and organisation makes this one of the year’s peak weeks for detoxing, downsizing and/or decluttering – for sussing out ways to work smarter, not harder. Your inner project manager will actually be having a ball.

This week’s astral brief is to stay centred. No easy ask with the winds of change buffeting everyone every which way, and intense emotions boiling over.  Silver lining? A quartet of planetary energies in your house of creativity and fun – enough to spark joy, as fellow Libran Marie Kondo would say.

With so many planets affecting your home zone, you’re probably knee-deep in renovating, relocating or discussing future moves. Whatever, this week’s aspects (high on histrionics, seething with intrigue) call for tough love. If it feels like everyone and their dog wants a piece of your time, care, advice and attention: ration yourself

This week’s Mars/Uranus alignment advises against rushing, or even moving too quickly while these planets are in accident-prone mode.  Instead, ask for assistance. With brilliant ideas flying at warp speed, it’s the time you live-wires can also rub others the wrong way, so refrain from engaging in battles of will.

Although this is generally a less grind, more unwinding sort of year for Capricorns, a planetary cluster powering up the money and security part of your chart suggests rolling up your sleeves and tackling the to-do list this week. If you don’t like what you’re seeing, make the changes that need making.

This year is moving Aquarians beyond a celestial cycle you’ve outgrown, like shedding an old skin, to pursue your own goals and personal passions.  Get as much done towards this as you can this week, before Mercury retrogrades in your sign for three weeks from the end of January.

Feeling too wired and tired to lift the spirits of the people you meet? With so much energy in the sensitive, psychic sector of your chart, fluctuating emotions, mood swings and all the psychic information your Piscean radar picks up, you need to reinforce boundaries and shield your field this week.
