Aries (March 21 – April 19)
January requires you to remember that you have superpowers. As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, you’re good at getting what you want, as long as you ask for it. Mercury retrograde ends on New Year’s Day, so you have no excuse not to stomp your feet and scream about what you want this month. The new moon in Capricorn looks really good for getting ahead professionally. But remember the value of being loved. You are cherished in your personal life, and the stars urge you to recognize that. Plus, you’ll want to keep a dream journal by your bed at the end of the month due to the high level of psychic downloads you’ll experience while snoozing, thanks to Uranus going direct.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
January begins with Mercury going direct, which helps you end an ongoing conflict in your personal life. Remember that you’re happier when things are low-drama. Can you lean into your reliable side and leave things in the past? Or will you stubbornly hold onto a grudge? It’s not advisable to pick at your skin; the same beauty wisdom holds when it comes to relationships. New Year’s resolutions are generally icky, but January does bring a new moon, and that’s all for a makeover. Aquarius season brings a rise in popularity. It may feel like success is happening overnight. Remember that it’s actually the result of long, hard work on your part. Don’t forget to be proud of yourself.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Your January assignment is to embrace change rather than fear it. December was messy and not the right time for major conversations, such as defining a relationship. However, January begins with your ruling planet, Mercury, going direct. You’re out of excuses but honestly ready to get the hard work out of the way. Then you can focus on the fact that late January is all about getting attention and making money (horoscopes can’t promise cash in this economy, but if it was up to the stars, this month would be epic for getting ahead at work or creatively). Keep an eye on your inbox on and around the bold full moon in attention-loving Leo. Read your full January horoscope here, Gemini.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
In January, warrior Mars slides into your 7th House of Partnership, indicating that it’s wise to think practically about love (which can be tough advice for water signs to hear). There’s a sensitive topic up for discussion. If you’re feeling heated, step back and cool down before figuring it out. Should you heed this advice, the first month of 2024 will bring light-hearted joy to your relationships. The stars also want you to go gossip, guilt-free. Once upon a time, gossip didn’t have a negative connotation but was about sharing information, so sip your tea. New Year’s resolutions can be problematic, but you’re considering a new piercing, injectables, or other body mod, thanks to moves from Pluto, the goth planet of makeovers.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Mercury retrograde ends in January, going direct right smack on New Year’s Day. Celebrate by selfishly treating yourself. Take a bath, sleep, and watch as much TV as possible. The stars gently remind you that January will be more productive and pleasurable if you keep your stress levels down. When the sun enters Aquarius, it’s hard to concentrate on anything but the most important relationship in your life (you know who we’re talking about, Leo). There’s a full moon in your sign, Leo, on Thursday, January 25. While full moons are beautiful, these intense lunations can cause anxiety. See it as an astrologer-approved excuse to stay home and enjoy beauty rituals. Read your full January horoscope here, Leo.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You’re the hermit of the zodiac, Virgo. You need alone time. When the sun enters Aquarius, your theme is self-care (cheers to that). It’s okay if you feel like leaning into your introverted side. Work is likely taking up a tremendous amount of energy, and it’s a shame to feel burnt out the first month of the year. Don’t sleep on wellness routines, but definitely get as much actual sleep as possible. When Venus, ruler of love, joins Mars and Mercury in your 5th House of Pleasure, you’re more attractive than ever. Your magnetism is potent around this time. When the sky lights up with a full moon in cocky Leo, your phone will also light up with exes in your DMs (and Mercury isn’t even retrograde anymore!) and new matches on your dating apps. Read your full January horoscope here, Virgo.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
If you texted a chaotic ex last month during Mercury retrograde, leave that in 2023. The planet goes direct on New Year’s Day and has no more time for such behavior. January is all about nurturing the present-day healthy relationships in your life. Your Aquarius season assignment is to work on maintaining your relationships. You’re the sign of balance, as represented by the scales, but do you remember to give your friends and lovers as much attention as they give you? When Uranus, the unpredictable wild child of the zodiac, ends its retrograde this month, your social circle may experience cosmic shakeups. Don’t panic. Just pick up your phone, and for your own sake, text everyone back. Read your full January horoscope here, Libra.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
For many Scorpios, family drama (or trauma) turns the holidays into some of the most stressful days of the year. So when Mercury ends its retrograde on New Year’s Day, please take some time for yourself. You deserve it. Scorpio horoscopes tend to warn against using your stinger. However, when your ruling planet, the fighter Mars, enters Capricorn and your 3rd House of Communication, you’re encouraged to stand up for yourself. Plenty of people reading this have been told to behave far too often. The stars say that you’re allowed to have a diva fit every once in a while. And it’s okay to be lazy during Aquarius season. You may feel especially drained around the Leo full moon, so take it easy, but don’t be surprised if this lunation also brings exciting news that makes you feel more famous. Read your full January horoscope here, Scorpio.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
When the fighter Mars enters your 2nd House of Possessions, you feel confident, which is the best state for all Sagittariuses. Astrologers can’t promise money in this economy, but we can tell you that Aquarius season points to making business deals. When the transformative planet Pluto moves into Aquarius, you feel called to improve your relationship with social media. For some, this means spending less time on your phone to boost productivity. For others, you’re networking more than ever and forging new business relationships through Instagram. Venus rules money in addition to love and beauty. Shoot your shot when she joins Mars in your 2nd House of Possessions. After a bustling month, stay in during the Leo full moon. You may be close to burnout if you’re not there already.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Both fighter Mars and lover Venus enter your sign this month, Capricorn, as does Mercury, the messenger of the zodiac, which thankfully ends its retrograde. With all these planets coming up you, January sees you feeling confident as hell. Make sure to put this to use and fight for your worth at work and in love while communicating clearly with the help of Mercury direct. Standing up for yourself feels good and tends to cast a spell. There’s also a new moon in your sign that’s perfect for switching up your beauty routine (but only in ways that make you feel pretty and excite you). Bonus points: The sun may leave your sign, but it enters Aquarius, illuminating your rich 2nd House. Read your full January horoscope here, Capricorn.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Text your friends back when Mercury retrograde ends on New Year’s Day. Don’t be the punk leaving people you love on read. January puts you through a mental training course. First, when the fighter Mars enters your 12th House of the Unconscious, where you keep the bodies, you feel called to do shadow work. That’s just a witchy way to say work with your demons. The sun enters your sign on Saturday, January 20, kicking off Aquarius season. Happy solar return! Can you open your mind and accept what arrives from your intuition? When Venus, ruler of love, joins Mars in your eerie 12th House, you are at your most psychic. Keep a dream journal by your bed, as messages may come while you sleep. Consider working with tarot cards if you aren’t already. A birthday surprise arrives when your ruling planet, the eccentric Uranus, ends its retrograde. Read your full January horoscope here, Aquarius.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Layer on the self-care like it’s sunscreen. This month sees a friendship shift. Some Pisces may enjoy a friendship level up to best friend status. However, there are some of you crushing on a friend. The more sleep you get, the more rational you will be in romantic choices and avoiding bickering once fighter Mars enters your 11th House of Friendship. But when Venus joins Mars, love is in the air, platonic or romantic, between you and someone you admire in your social circle. Aquarius season starts this month and enhances your already prominent psychic skills. Not to mention, you’re creative AF, perhaps thanks to your new muse. Just beware that the full moon at the end of the month could come with a side of anxiety, so plan to take it easy and lounge. You can do that. Read your full January horoscope here, Pisces.
