On Sunday, January 8th, a still-full Moon rides the line between the 10th House of Social Status under Cancer and the 11th House of Friendships under Leo. As the Moon rides out its final hours in its fullest form, our emotional intuition will be at an all-time high as we navigate our inner and outer worlds.
What do the stars have in store for your sign today?
Despite what the nagging voice in the back of your head is telling you, there is no wrong time to quit a bad habit. Regardless of when you make the choice, what’s important is that you did. Don’t underestimate that fact, Aries.
Rather than blaming yourself for not having the energy to communicate and explore, consider how you’re feeling. This lack of motivation is a strong indication of burnout. This is a sign that you need to take a breather.
Be wary of your pride convincing you that an apology isn’t worth making. Whether this hesitancy is rooted in self-deprecation or self-centeredness, your ego is keeping you from an opportunity to strengthen your relationships (and yourself).
It can be easy to assume we’re paying close enough attention to our relationships when, in reality, the humdrum of daily life has blinded us to how much time has passed. When was the last time you genuinely reached out, Cancer?
No one is immune to a hiccup in their plans—not even you, Leo. Try not to internalize this setback as a personal failure. Instead, try thinking of it as an opportunity to prove how well you perform under pressure.
When we keep one foot in the past, we start to color our current reality with memories that have already happened. Unsurprisingly, these two realities are rarely congruous. Work on staying in the present moment.
Trying to force yourself to feel motivated for your personal projects likely won’t work. But shifting your perspective a bit could. What if you focused on a different person, project, or other endeavor for a while?
You have a better reputation than you think you do, Scorpio. Use it to your advantage. While you might think you’ve come across as cold and distant, people like you far more than you give yourself credit for.
The stars suggest you follow your instincts in this endeavor, Sag. You are fully capable of handling this situation with tact and grace. Don’t be afraid to toot your own horn. You certainly deserve it.
Rebelling against your own self-interest might feel like the better option at the time. But if you were to look back on this situation in hindsight, how do you think you might feel? Consider your future self, Cap.
You’ve had your eyes glued to the horizon for new opportunities for so long that you’ve forgotten the possibilities of the ones in your backyard. Try applying some of that curiosity to your immediate environment, Aquarius.
Don’t be so quick to brush off your intuition, Pisces. Despite what people have tried to tell you in the past, your sensitivity is not a weakness. Listen to your body, mind, and gut. What are they trying to tell you?
