♥ & ☹ Weekly Horoscope: January 23 - 29, 2017

Astrology Detective delivers the Hearts and Hates for the week!

This week is overflowing with positive vibes. The only slightly challenging energy is Friday's square of Venus and Saturn, when overbearing control freaks could run roughshod over sensitive souls. At the New Moon in Aquarius later that day, however, a feeling of fair play will firmly take hold.

Mars moves into its ruler, Aries, on Saturday, making the weekend a perfect time for trying new things, spontaneous road trips, and spirited laughter with friends. The conjunction of Pluto and Mercury in Capricorn makes Sunday a 5-star day for tackling chores, seeking solutions, and getting things done.

Here is a general overview of this week's energy, valid for all. Hearts and Hates for your sign follow below!

♥ Energy to move forward
If you want to make changes, rev yourself up on Saturday, and then get to doing the hard work of making it happen on Sunday.

☹ Bully pulpit
Get ready for self-righteous outrage on Friday! Narrow-minded, didactic blowhards will be unrelenting in their sermons dictating how everyone should act, leaving compassionate people too exhausted to push back.

Your sign's Hearts & Hates Weekly Horoscope:

Aries Horoscope (March 21 - April 19)

♥ Friend outreach
Friday's New Moon is a great day for making new friendships that will blossom and gain in importance over the coming year.

☹ No joy in learning
Academics, teachers, and know-it-alls will bulldoze over any attempts you make to join the conversation. Your ideas are valid, but more importantly, creative, which is why the establishment can't understand them.

Taurus Horoscope (April 20 - May 20)

♥ Career cultivation
Sit down on Saturday to write out your career goals for the upcoming year. Make a timetable and action plan on how to achieve them and stick to it.

☹ Gilt-ridden
Friends may try to appeal to your generosity with sob stories, but stay strong in order to protect your hard-earned resources.

Gemini Horoscope (May 21 - June 20)

♥ Free your mind
Seek out new horizons, as well as new friends, at the weekend. Fresh stimuli will set your neurons awhirl, filling you with inspiration and extroversion.

☹ Who's wearing the pants?
In your relationship, it is definitely not you. Your control-freak lover may be harboring hidden resentment of the collegiate warmth at your workplace, and be out to kill your buzz.

Cancer Horoscope (June 21 - July 22)

♥ Plot your path to success
Once go-for-it Mars enters your sector of career ambition and success on Saturday, you will have several weeks to move and shake your way up the corporate ladder.

☹ Cold-hearted colleagues
While you are feeling intellectually creative and engaged on Friday, your colleagues will be in no mood to hear your pie-in-the-sky ideas. Do not take their aloofness too personally.

Leo Horoscope (July 23 - Aug. 22)

♥ New horizons for love
Breaking free from old routines and forging out on adventures in new territories will bring you many opportunities to meet a certain someone who will send your heart racing.

☹ Tired of feeling alone
Your heart is filled with tenderness and love, yet you feel nothing but isolation --especially if you are in a relationship. Dutiful, yet emotionally barren, suitors will never give you the warmth you crave. Take a risk on someone new, instead of fixating on a sure bet.

Virgo Horoscope (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

♥ Work your way to financial freedom
You will wake up at the weekend reinvigorated and ready to work! You have equal ambitions for getting things done, as well as getting your financial house in order. Focusing on your tasks will make your greater dreams come true.

☹ No room at the inn
If you and your sweetie show up shivering and cold at the doorstep of relatives, don't expect a warm welcome. Their judgments would rather see you two apart than together.

Libra Horoscope (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

♥ New leads on love
You are determined to have a fairy-tale romance. If you search for love or go on a date on Friday, you may meet a new spark that grows into a full-on flame over the next year.

☹ Just say no
Manipulative co-workers may try to pull on your heartstrings so that you pick up their slack. Don't feel pressured into doing other people's work.

Scorpio Horoscope (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

♥ Happy homemaker
You prefer nothing more than cozying up in your homey hideaway. The weekend gives you the opportunity to stay in and tackle all your domestic duties.

☹ That's a wrap
Your lover or child will try twisting you around their finger in order to get you to pick up their tab, but it will be to no avail, as you are onto their ploys.

Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

♥ Fun and laughter
The weekend is brimming with good cheer and extroversion. Do something spontaneous and outrageous so you have good story to tell.

☹ Forgotten family
You may be so caught up in your problems mid-week that you forget to nurture those around you, or to accept their attempts at love.

Capricorn Horoscope (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

♥ Family bonds
It is time to focus on money and family. By increasing your income, you will be able to create the secure foundations you desire for your nearest and dearest.

☹ The sorrow and the pity
Your birthday is over, so it is a little too late for a pity party. Even though you may be feeling a bit serious on the inside, whining about your problems could only end up isolating you more.

Aquarius Horoscope (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

♥ Say it loud
Shout your confidence from the rooftops this weekend. The upcoming weeks are an ideal time to reconnect with people or promote yourself.

☹ Bestie bullies
Dreary friends may try to rain on your parade on Thursday. Do not let their judgments affect your self-esteem; instead, seek more inspirational company.

Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 - March 20)

♥ Psychological cleansing
You will be feeling buoyant inside and out this weekend. Erase past hurts from your mind and start fresh.

☹ Can't wiggle out of the heavy lifting
The last thing you feel like doing on Thursday is work. No matter how much you try to charm your way out of it, no one else will be willing to pick up the slack.
