Hello lover, your weekly horoscope for January 25-31 has arrived. This week is a little wild—especially toward the end when Mercury (planet of communication) goes into its first retrograde of 2021. However, before we dive into all that, let’s talk about the start of the week when the sun (planet of self) in Aquarius squares Uranus (planet of surprises) in Taurus, creating tension between tradition and innovation. Let your little rebel out and go against the grain.

On Thursday, the full moon is in dramatic Leo. The goals and desires that we’ve been working toward since the Leo new moon in August are starting to manifest. It’s time to step into the spotlight and take the lead.

Lastly, Mercury turns retrograde in Aquarius on Saturday. Take a moment to back up all important files and electronics and do a quick virus scan (you can thank us later). When Mercury retrogrades in Aquarius, it can bring technological issues along with social gaffs and misunderstandings. Proofread everything before sending. And please, don’t hit “reply all!”

FYI, it’s a great time to use crystals to help you wade through retrograde worries. Blue lace agate is a calming stone that can help keep you tranquil, even when Mercury’s madness seems like too much to handle.
