Echo from the Stars: Weekly Horoscope Jan. 22

College dude takes on writing a horoscope and gives astrological album recommendations


"As the second semester rolls on, the stars might just be aligning for you."

As the second semester rolls on, the stars might just be aligning for you. This horoscope for the fourth week of January includes some zodiac-curated album recommendations from The Echo's favorite Gemini.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

This week, you will feel a rejuvenated social battery with Venus entering Capricorn on Tuesday. Go out, you deserve it. You will also feel more motivated in both school and work, so capitalize on your productivity before the inevitable college procrastination and burnout hit. Thursday marks a full moon in Leo, filling you with confidence entering the weekend.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

With Venus entering Capricorn on Tuesday, be aware that you may be wearing rose-tinted glasses as you sense romance in some connections — but don't let them out of the friend zone. When Thursday's full moon in Leo rises, your emotions will feel stronger. You will feel more sensitive, but it will pass. On Saturday Uranus moves direct to your sign, and you will be motivated to apply what you have learned in your favorite classes to your life outside academics.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

This week, you're probably going to feel a bit paranoid. But don't worry, Venus entering Capricorn will show you which of your friends are trustworthy — and most importantly, which are not. Thursday's full moon in Leo will strengthen your communication skills, so do not hesitate to set the boundaries you have been meaning to establish while you have the chance. Uranus moving into your Taurus-ruled completion zone this Saturday will give you a sense of closure from the past, helping you forget that two-week "situationship" from five months ago. It's time to let it go.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

If you're worried about your compatibility with that person in your Spanish class, remember that contrast is what is best for you. And that's not me saying that — it's Venus entering Capricorn. Opposites do attract, and your differences are a must for your chemistry. Leo's full moon on Thursday will liberate some of your financial stress and motivate you to save instead of "loaning" your broke friend money, when they still haven't paid you back from last time. Be proactive, and take a coffee break while you're at it. Thanks to Uranus moving direct with Taurus this Saturday, you'll find a way to get the entire group chat together for a hangout this weekend.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)

With Venus entering Capricorn on Jan. 23, you will notice which of your friends really pay attention to what you're saying — for better or for worse. You will also notice who you should pay attention to. With the full moon in your sign on Thursday, you will feel some 2 a.m. inspiration to better yourself and have a moment of personal transformation. It really is a big week for you, as Uranus will prompt you to reevaluate your less-than-ideal job and look elsewhere! But don't quit before you have something else lined up. You really need the money.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sep. 22)

You are going to feel a strong desire to express yourself this week because of Venus entering Capricorn, and you shouldn't resist. You're amazing! (And no, I'm not just saying this because my girlfriend is a Virgo. I am a perfectly respectable and unbiased college paper amateur astrologer). The full moon in Leo will show you something you need that's just in front of you. Really, it's so close. Let it in. Moving on, much like Tauruses this week, the movement of Uranus will motivate you to put what you have been learning in school into action.

Libra (Sep. 23 - Oct. 22)

As Venus enters Capricorn this week, you will find yourself drawn to the people who actually honor your feelings and hear you out when you need it. Use this to keep these connections close as the semester goes on. Leo's full moon on Thursday means you may find yourself desiring to share time with those in alignment with you. Uranus moving into your Taurus-ruled intimacy zone on Saturday will also deepen your relationships with those closest to you. I know it's hard to open up sometimes, but you can do it.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) 

Tuesday, Venus enters your Capricorn-ruled communication zone, and much like Geminis this week, you will appreciate the communication in your friendships. The full moon in Leo on Thursday will provide an academic shift for you as you find the courage to take control of the group project in your blow-off class and get a plan together before the day of. Your future self (as well as the future selves of your group mates) will greatly appreciate you. And as Uranus moves direct into your Taurus-ruled relationship zone on Saturday, you will find out who you can trust.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

Venus entering Capricorn on Jan. 23 will show you the wisdom of your body. If you feel sick, you are sick. Don't be silly. You will also be mindful and present this week, finding your center for some nice zen when you really need it. Leo's full moon on Jan. 25 will open your mind, showing you new opportunities and horizons you have not yet explored. Enjoy the peace. The movement of Uranus will also motivate you to try new things to maintain your health. Maybe you will finally try oil pulling after watching TikToks about it for months. Yeah, probably not. At least, take some vitamins!

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19) 

With Venus entering your sign on Tuesday, you will feel more positive about your relationships, and perhaps a bit sappy about the deep connections you have fostered. How cute of you. Use this deeper look to have more faith in both your friends and yourself. Leo's full moon on Thursday will leave you with the desire to watch Jacob Elordi "Saltburn" edits all day. Give in or not, I won't judge. You will also look for those that relate to you more, maybe including those that share your hyper-fixations. Uranus' Saturday movement will have you feeling more confident in yourself as well.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)  

Venus moving into Capricorn this Tuesday will alleviate some what-ifs from those old flames you have been thinking about recently. Free yourself from your patterns and pursue those that are a match for you, not just someone's attention. Leo's full moon on Thursday will have you feeling more romantic toward people, opportunities and more. You will feel more comfortable in any environment due to Uranus moving direct in your Taurus-ruled home zone on Saturday.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)

Last but not least: Pisces, you are going to feel a bit confused about where the line between romantic and platonic connection falls due to Venus entering Capricorn this week. This might crash and burn, or it might help you fully define where these boundaries lie. Thursday's full moon in Leo will give you some proper self-care motivation so you don't burn out this weekend or beyond. Uranus moving into your Taurus-ruled language zone on Saturday will help you analyze miscommunications as they are happening and smooth them over before things go too far.
