Your Jan. 30 Weekly Horoscope Gives You a Reality Check on Your Goals
The only thing better than looking to the stars for clarity and guidance is watching their celestial energy unfold right before your eyes. Witnessing prominent astrological transits can feel like watching a new episode of your favorite sitcom, but whether you catch the premiere or the highly anticipated finale, they’re all chapters of the same story. In the end, your storyline depends on how you’re harnessing the energy of your own celestial backdrop, because it’s all about perspective. What chapter are you on at the moment? Is there something in your life that’s coming to a close? Be sure to bookmark this page, because your weekly horoscope for Jan. 30 through Feb. 5 will more than likely take you off course.
The week kicks off with the sun (representing your ego, energy, and physical identity) squaring change-maker Uranus, the planet of chaos, innovation, and unexpected change. Note that the sun is already transiting through Aquarius, and this zodiac archetype already epitomises that of its planetary ruler, Uranus. Whether you look at it in terms of your individual freedom or your sense of belonging in the world, Aquarius season encourages us to tap into higher realms of consciousness and surround ourselves with like-minded individuals who share similar hopes, wishes, and dreams. This sign is scientific, futuristic, and a bit eccentric, but breakthroughs are often born from chaos. When it comes to Uranus in Taurus, however, this chaotic planet will continue to shake things up in your personal life, specifically when it comes to your finances, value systems, and money-making abilities. With all that said, it’s important to remain flexible and keep an open mind this week, regardless of the direction your narrative takes.
You might come across some unexpected developments at this time, too, especially now that Venus (Taurus’s planetary ruler) is stationing direct in Capricorn on Jan. 29, closely followed by Mercury retrograde ending and the planet stationing direct in Aquarius on Feb. 3. There will also be a new moon on Feb. 1, which happens to be in Uranus-ruled Aquarius. In short, everything about this week’s astro-weather will trigger significant change. Whether it’s the emotions you’ve chosen to keep to yourself or an important decision you’re still contemplating, there’s no escaping the friction we’re about to experience, personally and collectively.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) Weekly Horoscope For Jan. 30, 2022
Stay in your lane, but don’t lose sight of the bigger picture this week, Leo. Naturally, with the sun (your planetary ruler) squaring rebellious Uranus on Jan. 30 via your 10th house of authority, you’re most likely feeling ready to rebel against an authority figure you collaborate with on the regular, or you might even feel like partnering with someone who isn’t playing by the rules.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Weekly Horoscope For Jan. 30, 2022
Your heart may be telling you one thing, but you would much rather keep your word, Libra. Similarly conflicting themes are bound to be top of mind this week. The sun squares rebel Uranus on Jan. 30 via your eighth house of mergers, shared resources, and intimate connections, creating tension between the desire to remain true to your authenticity and the noble act of staying committed to a chaotic situation.

Your spirit longs for more freedom this week, Scorpio. This, however, may go against the foundation of a significant partnership, and here’s why: while the sun roams through your domestic fourth house of home, family matters, and emotional foundations, it will square freedom-loving Uranus via your seventh house of significant others on Jan. 30. Whether it be your literal living space or a familiar dynamic of sorts, you’re bound to experience some friction this week – but it’s all for your highest good. A new moon in Aquarius on Feb. 1 activates your fourth house of home and inner wisdom, bringing clarity and momentum to themes surrounding your emotional world.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Weekly Horoscope For Jan. 30, 2022
Hang tight, Capricorn, because there’s nothing remotely subtle about this week’s astro-weather – at least for you. At the start of the week, the sun (celestial ruler of your intimate eighth house of mergers) journeys through your stability-seeking second house of comfort but faces off with rebellious Uranus via your fifth house of passion on Jan. 29. In the aftermath of this aspect, you could find that the people, places, and things that truly make you happy may require you to step outside of familiar territory.
Just in time for you to come to terms with an important decision, Mercury will finally station direct in your sign on Feb. 3, which always feels like a breath of fresh air.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Weekly Horoscope For Jan. 30, 2022
You’re experiencing a powerful awakening this week, Aquarius. There may be a series of significant shifts happening in your personal life, but this week, you may be reflecting heavily on your individual identity, which can feel contradicting both to yourself and to the people around you. This is all thanks to the sun in your sign squaring off and stirring up chaos with your modern ruler, Uranus, on Jan. 30. On Feb. 1, a brilliant new moon will touch down on your sign, supercharging you with spontaneity and creative energy.
Keep in mind, with Mercury, Mars, and Venus also conjugating through Capricorn and your unconscious 12th house of secrets, you may be called to release something that’s been hindering you from embracing your true freedom. Have you been creating unnecessary restrictions or boundaries? Whether they’re necessary or unnecessary, these restrictions are being brought to light for you to revisit. Fortunately, Mercury will station direct on Feb. 3, bringing more of a “flow” to the overall stagnancy you’ve been trudging through.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Weekly Horoscope For Jan. 30, 2022
Do what you do best and go with the flow this week, Pisces. As it journeys through Aquarius via your secretive 12th house of surrender, the sun will square off with rebellious Uranus in your third house of communication and immediate surroundings on Jan. 30. Keeping a secret up your sleeve? This could also be something that’s been hidden from your mind’s eye. Either way, you may experience tension between what you know to be true firsthand and what’s actually happening behind the scenes. Knowing this, some of you may simply choose to keep to yourself for the time being.
Meanwhile, there will be a new moon in Aquarius on Feb. 1, activating your unconscious 12th house space – which, in turn, presents you with the energy to declutter, release, and break free from whatever’s been stifling your personal freedom and sweet solitude. Mercury will also station direct in Capricorn on Feb. 3, joining Mars and Venus in your socially conscious 11th house of community. The more you allow yourself to fully let go, the more room you have for opportunities coming your way. Don’t rush the process, though.
