After getting serious about your priorities during Capricorn season, the sun's debut in Aquarius encourages you to tap into your higher mind and commit to your future visions. What frequency are you currently vibing on? Step into your most unapologetic self, as your Jan. 22 weekly horoscope is reconnecting you with your true calling.
Typically, Aquarius season greets us with a fresh breeze of perspective. But this year, the sun's time in the fixed air sign will be more prominent than usual. It will foreshadow what's to come at the beginning of Pluto's journey through Aquarius, which happens briefly from March 23, 2023, to June 11, 2023, but then formally kicks off on Jan. 21, 2024, and lasts for two decades. Try to remain present so you can make sense of these subtle clues and cosmic foreshadowing.
The week begins with Uranus stationing direct on Jan. 22, which is quite timely considering the Uranus-ruled new moon that took place the day prior. Experimental and liberating, this will invigorate us with a burst of energy and momentum. It also doesn't hurt to think back to Uranus's first ingress into Taurus in May 2018, as it has continued to revolutionize everything from our value systems to our sense of self-worth. Now in 2023, we're finally setting ourselves free of what's no longer in alignment with our individuality. On Jan. 24, the sun will dance with Jupiter in a sparkling sextile, making it a lucky day for socializing and personal progress.
On Jan. 26, sensually driven Venus will slip into the dreamy sign of Pisces where she is "exalted" and able to work at her full potential, making the goddess of love a more magical creatrix. Here, the planet of love is equally as compassionate as it is filled with fantasy. Which astrological house belongs to Pisces in your birth chart? This is where you're most likely to thrive, specifically when it comes to romance, finances, and your sense of self-worth.
If you're wondering what this week has in store for you, read on for your weekly horoscope for Jan. 22 through Jan. 28, according to your zodiac sign and your rising sign. For a look at the year ahead, also read your 2023 yearly horoscope.
Aries (March 21–April 19) Weekly Horoscope For Jan. 22, 2023
You're recognizing the strength behind your personal growth, Aries. This week, you're discovering the difference between what you value versus where you've unknowingly invested your time and energy. The week of Jan. 22 begins with Uranus stationing direct in Taurus, bringing electricity and momentum to your stability-seeking second house of comfort, finances, and self-worth. This is a full-circle moment for you, especially with the sun and Venus glimmering through Aquarius and your 11th house of community affairs. Perhaps a spontaneous run-in with friends does the trick, but you're gaining even more clarity on the person you've become, which is a magnificent thing.
On Jan. 24, while energizing your socially conscious 11th house of friendship and future visions, the sun will meet with expansive Jupiter in your sign, which can be equally as motivating as it is experimental. You have the courage and confidence to make a difference in the world and also take a leap of faith toward a goal or dream. The moon will enter your sign on Jan. 25, bringing you inward and perhaps triggering your defenses. But fear not. Your celestial ruler, Mars, *finally* direct, will make you all the more assertive and resourceful. Also, Venus's ingress into Pisces — your sleepy 12th house of closure, dreams, and spirituality — on Jan. 26, will adorn your inner world and life behind the scenes with magic and mysticism. If you're not hanging out at the spa, this is an excellent time to get some beauty sleep.
Taurus (April 20–May 20) Weekly Horoscope For Jan. 22, 2023
Having a change of heart, Taurus? You've got a pretty big week ahead, and it's kicking off with rebel Uranus going direct in your sign on Jan. 22. Keep in mind, the planet began its retrograde journey through your sign back in August 2022, so think back to this time of your life, and reflect on what you've discovered (or perhaps liberated yourself from). In other news, your celestial ruler, Venus, is sitting close to Saturn in Aquarius, which is asking you to get clear on your professional goals, especially when it comes to the practical and more serious side of things.
Are you being realistic about your investments? Is this professional collaboration fulfilling your financial needs? Being brutally honest with yourself comes easy when you're a fixed earth sign, but you may need to relay the message as well.

If you've been unconsciously inhibiting yourself from living up to your fullest potential, things are about to change in a very big way, Gemini. The week of Jan. 22 begins on a supercharged note, as changemaker Uranus concludes its retrograde journey through your subconscious 12th house and begins to move in forward motion. Did you plant any seeds of intention during yesterday's new moon in Aquarius? Either way, themes surrounding your belief systems, personal philosophy, and journey to self-discovery are very important at this time. Take note especially if you work in media or are perhaps in the public eye. Others of you, however, may be in the midst of relocating or going completely digital while traveling.
Venus will sit close to serious Saturn on this day, which could feel equally as stabilizing as it is burdensome.

New beginnings in your social life are setting you free, but in addition to cultivating your ingenious gifts, you're also making a lasting impression on the rest of the world.
Venus will be joining forces with taskmaster Saturn in Aquarius — via your intimate eighth house of joint ventures — on this day, which is where you're being encouraged to get brutally honest with yourself or a significant other. For instance, think about where you've been investing all of your time, energy, and resources. Remember, Uranus-ruled Aquarius has everything to do with the digital age, so it doesn't hurt to double check your app subscriptions. You might need to cut back.

Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22) Weekly Horoscope For Jan. 22, 2023
The more you're willing to keep an open mind, the more likely you are to thrive, Virgo. On Jan. 22, after retrograding through your exotic ninth house of wisdom, experience, and self-discovery since August 2022, Uranus will finally kick into forward motion. The changemaker planet is spontaneous and disruptive, as is your current philosophy. If you don't have the same views of the world around you, it's not that you've lost hope — on the contrary, this is all a part of your growth.

In the mood to experiment, Sagittarius?

In the meantime, think back to August 2022 and everything you've discovered with regard to your scheduling patterns, acts of service, and health rituals.

However, both of these heavenly bodies will be touching down on your stability-seeking second house of comfort, money, values, and self-worth.
That being said, you're being encouraged to reflect on everything from the revolution of your hobbies and passion projects to your money-making abilities. Have you considered monetizing your unique talents? This could feel like a big reality check when regarding your finances and sense of security, but this insight is helping you level up.

This is the definition of auspicious, so get ready to ride the waves of change. In the meantime, think back to August 2022, which is when Uranus first stationed retrograde in Taurus and your fourth house of living spaces, family matters, and emotional foundations. What have you discovered when it pertains to your unique values systems? What kind of home are you looking forward to building in the near future?
That same day, Venus will sit alongside Saturn in your sign, which could, in turn, bring up a series of questions and concerns you might've initially swept under the rug. If it's in terms of your professional life, this is where you're being encouraged to reflect on everything from the results of your salary to the branding of your business. Others of you may simply need to decide on what you're genuinely looking for in a significant other or potential roommate.

That same day, however, Venus will join Saturn in a brutally honest conjunction via your 12th house of closure, dreams, and inhibitions. There will be no dissociating or sweeping things under the rug; instead, prepare for a reality check when it comes to your unconscious patterns of self-sabotage as well as your fears around financial security or significant relationships.
