Aries horoscopes for January 2022
Skip the drama and gossip
You’ll wake up on New Year’s Day revved up and full of professional dreams for the upcoming year. Your enthusiasm and ideas are all on-point, but confusion about your overall life direction may sweep in mid-month, putting the breaks on new plans until the early February. Use the latter half of January to do your research and lay the groundwork before jumping into, and launching, new endeavours. You may need to deal with petty drama and gossip in the workplace, so try to stay away from as many team projects as possible; it is better to go it alone and keep your cards close to your chest at this time. Come month’s end, you will be finally ready to go after all your goals.
Taurus horoscopes for January 2022
It’s time to embrace freedom and excitement
You’ll be bursting with enthusiasm and a get-up-and-go attitude at the beginning of the month. New Year’s Day will fill you with hope and enthusiasm, providing a certain rebel edge that gives you the courage you need to take risks, shake things up and implement change. But your thoughts soon turn to past loves and present flakey friendships. There may be some baggage you need to thoroughly process so you can truly move on and embrace a life of freedom and excitement. Use this period to reflect on what closeness truly means to you and if the people in your life are fulfilling those needs. It’s time to distance yourself from the charming users and manipulators in your world, as a false friend may be draining you of your mojo. If there is a lost love you still think about, reach out to them before the 29th. You may be able to get back together, or at least make peace.
Gemini horoscopes for January 2022
Prepare for a turbulent romance
A domineering romantic partner may be constantly nit-picking your lofty career ambitions, as way of undermining you so they remain in a place of control. This could lead to a considerable amount of confusion, but with Jupiter in your professional sector this year, you will have an amazing array of fairy-tale opportunities coming your way, so don’t allow yourself and your dreams to be undermined by a competitive, resentful partner. You may be mistaking physical intimacy for true, authentic emotional connection and intimacy. It is time you start unravelling what is really forging the bonds of your relationship. If you are single, a new love interest may cause you to drop the ball at work. Try to maintain a balance, so you don’t fall behind on your duties.

Get ready to take action
Whether single or in a relationship, the focus is on love this January. If you’re single, you may have met an exciting, potential suitor while out socializing over holidays who swept you off your feet. Alternatively, there may be someone in your friendship group you may have your eye on. These connections have tremendous potential to morph into something lasting and long-term, but past hurts may be holding you back. There is no need to rush into things; it is better to take things slow this month, and allow amour to evolve naturally. By February, it will be full-speed ahead. If you are part of an existing couple, you may have been dealing with power games for quite a long time. The new year has you questioning the ultimate meaning of love and togetherness. If there is a friend you always turn to for fun or emotional support, a moment of reckoning has finally arrived. Use January to reflect and make preliminary decisions, so you can finally take action in February.
Leo horoscopes for January 2022
Set some boundaries
Once again, your focus is on work and career, while your love life is eddying into confusion and neglect. With a huge amount of auspicious opportunities raining down upon you career-wise, you will once again put love on the back burner, as you simply don’t have enough time to deal with everything. If you are in a relationship, this could cause a massive amount of confusion and anger in your romantic life, as a partner may be flummoxed and resentful of your hot-and-cold attitude. You need to reassure them that you care and try to carve out time for them, otherwise it will come off as selfishness and egotism on your end. If you are dating, you could blow a promising opportunity by failing to take the ball and run with it. In any case, your romantic mojo will return by the end of the month, promising passion by Valentine’s Day.

Virgo horoscopes for January 2022
Romantic possibilities are off the charts this month. You could meet someone new, especially if they live at a distance or are someone from a different culture. You could also cross paths with a potential suitor while at an educational course or spiritual practice, such as yoga. Commitments and duties around the home or with family members may be getting in the way of true love, however. You may need to make some hard choices concerning where you live. If you are living with someone who completely slacks off, leaving you to do all the heavy lifting, you may be better off changing residence. If you are in a long-distance relationship, you may finally decide to move so you can be together. If you are single and in a small town where there isn’t much opportunity for dating, you may need to transfer to a bigger city, even if it means breaking from your roots. Use January to reflect, so you can make a final decision in early February.

Libra horoscopes for January 2022
Follow your inner voice
You’ll be up for sprucing up your domestic sphere early in the month. Whether it is remodelling, moving, taking on a mortgage, redecorating or simply taking care of family and those you love, you will be filled with energy and inspiration. While this is a great time for planning and looking around, you may want to put off any major decisions until after Feb. 3, especially when it comes to signing contracts. If you must take on a new lease or buy a new home, make sure to read all the fine print first. In terms of interior decorating, your normally accurate inner aesthetic compass may be off, and you could end up with furnishings or color schemes that you regret later, so put off purchases until the end of the month. You may decide to give it a go with an ex; take things slow and they may work out. If you are single, you may be hesitant about a new suitor who seems emotionally distant or controlling. Follow your inner voice.

Take things to the next level
You’ll be thinking about the future at the beginning of the new year, especially when it comes to love and long-term commitment. You can often be resistant to change, but if you feel like popping the question or taking things to the next level in a relationship, there is no time like the present. Singles may want to reach out to an ex and try to patch things up or let a crush know the true extent of your feelings. Who knows? They may reciprocate, and if not, at least you are free to move on and look elsewhere. When it comes to home and family, however, misunderstandings abound. Try to put off signing leases or mortgages until Feb. 3, if possible. You may be tempted to spoil your sweetie or children with lavish gifts, but Christmas is over and it’s time to cut down on the spending.
Sagittarius horoscopes for January 2022
Communication is key
Family members or roommates have had you over a barrel for far too long. If your inner instinct is telling you that you are being manipulated or lied to, listen. It is time to stand up for yourself by putting your foot down and setting firm boundaries. If the situation is particularly egregious, you may even decide to move or go no contact. When it comes to work, some amazing opportunities may appear early in the year, perhaps from a former boss or co-worker, so use the New Year holiday to reach out, get in contact and say hello. Don’t be afraid to let people know you are looking for interesting new career opportunities. With Mercury Retrograde in your communications sector from the 14th, you may experience crossed wires until Feb. 3. Make sure you choose your words very carefully to avoid misunderstandings. Mail may be delayed or emails may get lost, so give things time and follow-up if you don’t get a response.

In the mood for love
The beginning of the New Year is overflowing with romance and personal power. If you are single, you may have met your Prince(ss) Charming on New Year’s Eve. Don’t let the situation go to waste. Unless you left a glass slipper behind, they may not search the kingdom to track you down, so make sure you follow up and reach out to them. Alternatively, you may want to use the New Year as an excuse to send a greeting to a past love who got away. If you are in a relationship, you and your partner can rekindle the heady feelings of romance from an earlier time in your relationship. You will want to be careful with money and spending after the 14th. Payments may be late in arriving or you may need to deal with sudden expenses, so it’s a good time to tighten the belt. With Venus retrograde in your sign until the 29th, put off any unnecessary beauty procedures to avoid unwanted results.
Aquarius horoscopes for January 2022
Leave the past in the past
As the New Year moves forward, your thoughts will be on the past. Past loves, past desires, past goals. There is a lot to reflect on and sort out, and the dark, cold days of winter provide an excellent opportunity for deep-cleaning your inner psyche once and for all. New Year’s Day is an excellent time to spend at home to rejuvenate and recharge your batteries. Spending carefree moments with family will raise your spirit and give you a sense of purpose for the upcoming year. Try to resist peer pressure mid-month, when friends could try to guilt trip you into spending more money on social outings than you can really afford. You are entering an extended period when you could greatly fill up your coffers, but could squander your bountiful gains just as quickly, so try to be extremely mindful when it comes to spending. By the time February rolls around, you will be able to focus on the future and leave the past far behind.
Pisces horoscopes for January 2022
The festive spirit continues into January. You are in an extremely social mood, and there will be many opportunities to connect with friends, old and new. This is an excellent period to reach out to people you haven’t heard from in a while and see how they are doing. If single, an existing member of your circle could morph into a romantic interest, especially on the 8th. If you are smitten with someone, this is an excellent day to let them know. When it comes to work, however, things are bit more confusing. Your ambitions are off the charts, but your ideas are a bit idealistic. Success requires a lot of hard, often drudge-like work. While your ideas are admirable and creative, you need to face the harshness of reality if you want to build a career.
