Mercury Retrograde Is Coming… Here’s Your Horoscope for the Week of January 10

Weekly Horoscope

The first Mercury Retrograde of the year is coming this week (on Friday, January 14) and it will be in the sign of Aquarius.

This planet which rules communication retrograding in the sign that rules relationships means that your ties with people near and dear to you may be put at risk due to petty squabbles, miscommunication, and misunderstandings. So be more wary of how you say things to them during this time!

Find out how the energies of this retrograde will affect you this week:

Aries (March 21 to April 19)

You may have been second-guessing yourself and your decisions lately, and it’s because of a disconnect between you and your innermost self. Don’t ignore it—get in touch with that inner voice and listen to what it has to say. Only then will you find the answers you seek! Shine a light on your visions, take the plunge, and trust that you will get the support you need from all around you.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You may be feeling discouraged by the string of bad luck in your life lately. During this time, you may want to lay low and let the storm pass before making any drastic decision. Life may be full of tough moments but you always get through them, don’t you? Keep that spark within you for your passions alive and stay true to who you are.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21)

Your negative behaviors and bad habits have been keeping you from moving forward in your life, but you’re not entirely sure how to free yourself from them. Don’t be scared if you feel stuck; clarity will come in time. Just do what you can to release these from your system and align yourself back to your values.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Remember to take time to celebrate your wins and indulge in the fruits of your labor! Don’t feel guilty because you deserve this abundance and fulfillment you are currently experiencing. However, don’t let it fool you into thinking that you can take on so much more than you are capable of! Trying to do everything at once is unhealthy and seldom helps in achieving your goals. Be patient and relax!

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

After having achieved some long-term goals recently, you must allow yourself time to relax and relish in the fruits of your labor. Be proud of yourself! Celebrate with your loved ones! Refrain from being anxious about what you need to do next; just focus on the now. Stay kind and compassionate to yourself and to others, and keep tending to your emotional needs.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

This is your sign to make your dreams a reality by having a clear vision where to go, a plan on how to go about it, and an openness to expand your knowledge! Stay grounded and do what you can within your abilities to reach your goals. Get support and mentorship from other people too, if you can. Most importantly, believe in your potential!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You may be getting impatient lately because of certain delays in your life and in your goals, but remember that things will always take time and that doesn’t mean that they are never going to happen. Just slow down, relax, and let things slowly unfold day by day. Use this moment to replenish your energies too. Trust that with your ambition, self-discipline, and level-headedness, nothing will stop you from achieving your goals.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Things have been stable lately thanks to all the hard work you’ve done to build that firm foundation in your life. Take this moment to just relax and take in all the blessings! Don’t restrain yourself from indulging in your wealth from time to time! Celebrate your wins with your loved ones and be proud of who you’ve become.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Constantly striving to be perfect is an unhealthy attitude that will only harm you in the long run. Reassess your motivations and be open to making mistakes because that’s how you learn and grow. Be wary of being taken advantage of as well by loved ones, clients, or peers. Remember that you can’t give to others what you don’t have.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Disappointing setbacks have got you feeling stuck in a rut and you’re taking this negativity rather personally. Just slow down and make sense of what’s going on around you. Reflect on the lessons you’ve learned from these pains and begin your journey to healing. Don’t burden yourself with other people’s problems at this time either; just focus on your own.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You may be experiencing power struggles and a lack of teamwork in your work environment currently which makes it difficult to achieve your tasks. Objective thinking is needed at this time, which means that you shouldn’t allow your emotions to get the better of you. Look at this situation from every angle and use logic to find solutions.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Whenever you’re feeling dissatisfied in any aspect of your life, reevaluate your priorities and reassess your motivations. Focus on the steady progress you’ve made so far and be proud! Your persistence and commitment to your goals will allow you to continue handling big challenges. So keep dreaming big and don’t give up.
