How’s it hanging? Your weekly horoscope for January 10-16 2022 has arrived! How’s everyone’s 2022 going? Broken any resolutions yet? The week opens with a sweet sextile between the sun in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces, adding a mystical flair to an otherwise business-oriented season. What are your professional dreams? This week is the one to really fire up your manifestations, as Neptune taps into the dreamy side of things.

But as the collective basks in the novelty of the new year, I, as your weekly astro-weatherwoman, must warn you all that Mercury, the trickster planet, begins its first retrograde of the year starting on Friday, upping the retrograde planet tally.

But you all know the drill. Practice careful communication—especially with friends and those in your network—and be on the lookout for technological troubles. And in three weeks, the retrograde will be but a bad dream.

How the Planets Will Affect Your Zodiac Sign This Week

Aries

You start the week with a pretty rude awakening when Mars in Sagittarius forms a square with Neptune in Pisces on Tuesday. You could discover that what you’ve been searching for isn’t what you expected. Some unsavory discoveries could leave a bitter taste in your mouth, but don’t make any rash decisions, Aries. You could come to regret them later.

This is your PSA to back up any important information and change your passwords now because Mercury goes into retrograde in your social zone on Friday. This retrograde could hit your technology pretty hard: texts not getting delivered, laptops getting hacked, and certain friendships feeling a strain.

The week ends with some major changes in your career that could impact your reputation as the sun forms a conjunction with Pluto in your career zone on Sunday. You could find yourself in a position of power, so use it wisely.

 

Taurus

Stand by your moral code on Monday when the sun in Capricorn forms a sextile with Neptune in Pisces, bringing out some heavy peer pressure from others. Don’t be afraid to stick to your beliefs, Taurus. You could get rewarded one way or another for your ideals.

However, the rest of the week might get pretty sticky when Mercury goes into retrograde in your career zone on Friday. Remember to back up everything on your hard drive, because things could get very messy over the next few weeks. Possible delays might keep you from your ambitious goals, and there could even be a career shake-up. Double-check every email so you don’t hit “reply all” by accident.

Fortunately, you get an opportunity to expand your mind when the sun forms a conjunction with Pluto in your expansion zone on Sunday. Some new information could be life-changing, especially regarding your values and culture.

However, the week doesn’t get any easier when your ruling planet Mercury goes into retrograde in your expansion zone on Friday. Don’t plan any major trips, as they could be canceled or seriously delayed. Dial down your big ideas right now; they could be too big to manage. Try to stay grounded.

End the week with some major changes when the sun forms a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn in your transformation zone on Sunday. This could be a day of rebirth as powerful changes come your way. Make some power moves, Gemini, but don’t get too overwhelmed.

You start the week with big dreams of adventure and discovery when the sun in Capricorn forms a sextile with Neptune in Pisces on Monday. However, you’ll need the help of a trusted partner. Whether you’re searching for a travel companion, study buddy, or someone to brainstorm with, you’ll find one today.

Then be very careful with your financial activities over the next couple weeks, as Mercury goes into retrograde in your intimacy zone on Friday. This isn’t a good time to lend money to others or start any big financial projects. You might not see the gains.

After spending weeks working on yourself, you’re changing your life for the better when the sun in Capricorn forms a sextile to Neptune in Pisces on Monday. This aspect can help you move forward with your life and see the positive outcomes of the changes you’ve made. You’ve become a new person, Leo, show it off!

The first retrograde of the year starts when Mercury goes backward in your partnership zone on Friday, making it not the best time to sign any major contracts or get married. But this is a good time to start renegotiating contracts if you’re dissatisfied, though you could become extra competitive to get what you want.

Try to quell those competitive urges by forming better habits when the sun forms a conjunction with Pluto in your routine zone on Sunday. This is an ideal time to improve yourself and continue working on your New Year’s resolutions.
