Your weekly horoscope for January 29 – February 4, 2024

Here's what's in store for your zodiac sign this week.

With outer planets Pluto embarking on a twenty-year voyage of historical import and Uranus turning forward, we can expect the coming months to continue rolling out significant changes in our world, from climate to politics to economics to availability of essential services. Here’s your weekly horoscope for January 29 – February 4, 2024.

Aquarius, Jan 21 – Feb 19

Happy birthday, Aquarians! With the sun in your sign, plus the indelible imprint of Pluto’s entry into Aquarius for the next twenty years transforming the world at large, its scientific discoveries, technological advances, social changes and progressive ideas will be the background to your evolution. 

Pisces, Feb 20 – Mar 20

Planetary emphasis on the final cycles that are naturally occurring in your life asks what you need closure on before your astrological new year kicks in. Executive Mercury in efficient mode is assisting this audit with sensible judgments, unsentimental decision-making and no-nonsense communication.                                             

Aries, Mar 21 – Apr 21

Motivational Mars, your primo planet, in Aries’ astro-zone of ambition and public recognition till mid-February makes this a good time to reach out to mentors and supporters, and/or launch some vigorous self-promo, perhaps setting up a stylish rebrand. This week says: Don’t wait – investigate.

Taurus, Apr 22 – May 21

In addition to Uranus, the planet of change, in Taurus, Pluto’s long-term move to the sign of the unexpected can be taxing for fixed signs like yourself. But with this celestial scenario in place for the foreseeable future, it is best to start finding a way of making obligatory changes work in your favour.

Gemini, May 22 – Jun 22

Predominantly air-sign vibes are this week’s gift for your busy, buzzing Twinship. Which is great for brainstorming and inspirational ideas, but carries the danger of overload, making it difficult to focus and move forward with grace and glide, so factor in downtime, quiet time, and device-free time. 

Cancer, Jun 23 – Jul 23

While this week’s astrology has its wild surprises and friendly pleasures, it’s not the most sensitive or sympathetic of transits. But no being hard on yourself or others please; the variations of the human dance won’t always favour our preferences, so do your best and forget the rest.                                                                                                         

Leo, Jul 24 – Aug 23

This week’s celestial energies are mentally and technically oriented. According to physical astrology, your fiery sign rules over the heart, so the question for Leos is how can you bring more heart energy into this digital, tech-obsessed world? Even just one thing each day could make a significant difference.                                                                                                                          

Virgo, Aug 24 – Sep 23

Virgo’s mentor planet Mercury in its most organized and efficient mode is currently offering an excellent assist for decluttering, downsizing and ticking off the to-do list. Perfect timing to take advantage of this week’s astral energy firing up your work zone with a stimulus package from the cosmos.                                                                                                                              

Libra, Sep 24 – Oct 23

With astral energetics in your sector of self-expression and creativity, which some astrologers call the house of fun, what could be more enjoyable for a Libran? Use this cycle to explore and experiment, and if you feel you might be outgrowing who you’ve been up till now, then you’re on the right track.                                                                                                               

Scorpio, Oct 24 – Nov 22

This week’s planetary pattern offers Scorpios the opportunity to catch yourself digging in your heels and stay flexible.  To be willing to pivot, especially in negotiations concerning home, family or base of operations. Proposed changes may be challenging, but patience and curiosity can uncover their exciting side.                                                                                               

Sagittarius, Nov 23 – Dec 21

As this busy week escalates activities in your local community and social groups, don’t be surprised if its digital insistence starts giving you a brain ache. Should this happen, go for a walk or drive in nature (preferably off your beaten path) to reboot your organic, natural intelligence.                                                                                           

Capricorn, Dec 22 – Jan 20

Though its random and sometimes radical energy might seem counter-intuitive to your structured sign, this week’s planetary emphasis in Capricorn’s zodiac zone of finances and holdings offers plenty of scope for making progress on what’s most valuable to you, so stay open to new opportunities.
