Your daily horoscopes for Tuesday January 16, 2024
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
No more sweeping a personal issue under the rug, Aries. As the sensitive moon merges with healing comet Chiron in your sign, it’s important to advocate for yourself. Stop letting everyone else weigh in. What path is best for you? Only you know. Maybe you want to initiate change, but you can’t quite get out of the starting gate. Though friends are cheering you on, a more solid source of support can make all the difference. Find a therapist, sign up for a support group or invest in a life coach. Set up an appointment before the day is through.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
If you can’t let it ALL the way go, could you ease up on that grudge just a little? Ruminating is only filling your psyche with negativity, Taurus. Besides, it’s possible that the “offending” party simply couldn’t meet your elevated standards. Today’s mashup of the emo moon and “wounded healer” comet Chiron advises you to do whatever it takes to release resentment. If forgiveness still feels elusive, the least you can do is stop venting about it and turn your attention to more positive pursuits.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
Warning: A rebellious team member could verge on mutiny today, Gemini, forcing you to take action. While you may be ready to boot them from the squad, stop yourself from going to extremes. First, see what happens if you pull them aside and compassionately find out what they’re so upset about. There’s a strong possibility that they’re feeling left out—or drowned out. Give them a chance to air their grievances and you might just transform hurt feelings into a new level of connection and trust.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
If it’s become lonely at the top, examine your own cutthroat tendencies. (Yes, we ALL have them.) Gaining a lot means having a lot to lose, and that can leave you feeling alienated and self-protective. Today, as healer-feeler comet Chiron syncs up with the moon, it can expose this “wounded” part of yourself. Genuine security doesn’t come from outside achievements or material resources. For you, Cancer, it’s all about nurturing relationships with people who have your back…and that can include folks who are technically your competition.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
You’re a lion, not an ostrich, Leo, so pull your head out of the sand! Ignoring conflicts could be detrimental to the health of a relationship under today’s sync-up of the moon and “wounded healer” comet Chiron. Before a minor problem escalates into a major meltdown, get your paws on the wheel. If you need to address someone’s neglectful or egregious behavior, choose the right time and place for this conversation. Meet for dinner or tea in a quiet atmosphere. It will help smooth out the rough edges of this tough, but necessary, dialogue.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
If a relationship hits a speed bump today, you COULD start spiraling, but what good can come of that? As the moon syncs up with healer-feeler comet Chiron in your intimate eighth house, the cosmos offers a better plan: Get vulnerable and verbalize your needs. (It’s a lot easier than indirectly “asking” by dropping hints or overfunctioning to prove your worth.) Physical chemistry is important, but under this deep-feeling transit, you’re looking for more than a surface attraction. Today, feelings may cool for someone who’s lacking in the “emotional synergy” department. Don’t force it, Virgo!
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
A connection that’s felt rocky lately can find its way to calmer waters under today’s soothing union of the moon and Chiron, the comet known as “the wounded healer.” Start by examining places you’ve become bitter or resigned. Maybe you’ve been internalizing your anger instead of addressing someone’s troubling behavior. If so, it’s no wonder you feel so distant from each other. The good news is, Libra, getting your needs met may be as easy as screwing up the courage and asking for them out loud!
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
Get off the treadmill—literally, Scorpio—and add some soul to your fitness goals. As the moon and healing comet Chiron unite in Aries, they inspire you to bring more creativity into your self-care game. Refresh your workout playlist with some new jams. Download meditation tracks from a hypnotherapist or a manifestation guide who specializes in creative visualization. Think in terms of creating a practice. What would happen if you began your mornings with gentle stretching and journaling instead of coffee and email? You might not feel a shift immediately, but repeat the practice for a few weeks straight and the transformation will kick in.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
Does it feel like every time you’re just about to hit the mark, the target moves? Let that be a sign to step out of the game, at least for the day, while the moon connects to “wounded healer” comet Chiron in your fifth house of glamour, romance and fame. Your exuberant sign doesn’t always recognize when people are dangling a carrot on a stick. But once you catch on to their game, there’s only one thing to do: Stop taking the bait! When you do, don’t be surprised if they pull a 180 and start pursuing YOU. If not? Move on to better things!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
If your energy is dragging, take a look at what you’ve been putting on your plate—or sneaking handfuls of every time you pass the candy jar. Even if you’ve been eating clean, try keeping a food journal for the rest of the week. Write down what you’ve had for every meal and how you feel 30 minutes after. If a certain substance raises a red flag, you might see what happens if you eliminate it from your diet for a couple weeks, then gauge your mood. Stress can also impact your digestive system, so track that, too. Today is the day where you might decide to cancel a relationship or obligation that consistently leaves your stomach in knots.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
Superficial chitchat could quickly evolve into soul-baring confessions today as the moon pair-bonds with “wounded healer” Chiron in your communication zone. One minute you’re complimenting a stranger on her sweater, the next you’re commiserating about your struggles. Bonding over a shared “enemy” can also be a powerfully connective experience, but don’t spill all the tea. What you share in confidence could slip out “accidentally” and damage your credibility. Keep the vibe high, Aquarius, even if you have to muffle the funniest line you’ve thought up in a while.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 16
If money’s been a sore spot in a relationship lately, today it could feel as painful as a gaping wound. Maybe you’ve been overly dependent on someone else’s generosity—or you’ve been offering a little too much fiscal support to someone who’s taking more than they’re giving. As the moon bonds with healing comet Chiron, find space to sort through this. Things might feel a little tense initially, but you’ll be able to push past it. It’s better than allowing discontent to fester. Dive deep: It’s probably not only about the cash but maybe how emotionally “invested” you both are. Find a way to restore the energetic balance.
