Echo from the Stars: Weekly Horoscope Jan. 29

See what the stars have in store as we transition into February and get inspired with fun activities to do this week


For all of our astrology lovers, The Echo is diving into how the stars align each week.

February is approaching and the spring semester is in full swing. Discover what the stars have to say about the person you will blossom into this semester.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

It’s hustle time! The Venus-Jupiter trine on Monday is going to give you more success in school (or in work). But unfortunately, this won’t happen until you say goodbye to TikTok. This weekend’s challenge is to delete that app and see how much work you can get done. The Mercury-Neptune sextile on Friday invites you to let loose after all of your hard work. Similarly, Sagittarius moon suggests that you kick back and relax this weekend. Happiness should be a core theme. 

Activity of the week: Take a yoga class at the SDFC. This fitness class is free for students and is a great way to unwind and recharge.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

If you’re stuck with the same toxic people, the Venus-Jupiter trine will help you to snap out of your delusion and recognize people’s true colors. But don’t fear — the Mercury-Neptune sextile on Friday asks you to reconnect with some real friends and support each other, because you deserve friends who really care! Sagittarius moon is in your intimacy zone this week. You will begin to see romance more powerfully than before, and might find yourself relapsing on your Tinder addiction. But be careful! Make sure you channel this energy in a way that’s healthy. Remember that “true love” isn’t just with a partner — it can also be found with a friend.

Activity of the week: Schedule a weekend picnic with some friends and enjoy each other’s company.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

The Venus-Jupiter trine inspires you to run toward the emotions you've been dancing around. It's a hard pill to swallow, but you’re going to have to face those feelings in order to heal. The Mercury-Neptune sextile will give you a sudden burst of imagination. Bring some new ideas to your group project. Sagittarius moon will have you feeling romantic, but slow down and focus on yourself! Take the time to connect with the most loving parts of your personality and see how you can utilize those in any of your relationships.

Activity of the week: Make a collage mood board. Channel your self-love and creativity. Get some magazines and create a picture of who you are and who you want to be, then hang it above your desk or bed.

Cancer (June 21- July 22)

Venus-Jupiter trine will make you realize that love isn’t that serious! Integrate friendship and romance. You can’t love anyone without being able to laugh with them, anyway. The Mercury-Neptune sextile will have you experiencing trust in a new way. But, be careful and weary of others’ intentions, even if you are certain they are positive. Sagittarius moon nudges you to stay mindful of not only others, but yourself. Reflect on this question: How can I protect my own wellbeing?

Activity of the week: Take a relaxing bath. Put on some reflective music and throw your phone far in the other room.

Aquarius (January 21-February 19)

Happy birthday and happy (late) new year! The Venus-Jupiter trine will help you start your newest year around the sun by breaking you old patterns and cutting ties with people who just don’t fit in with your goals.

The Mercury-Neptune sextile invites you to talk to people you’re having issues with and get some closure. It’s a great way to start your new year off right! Sagittarius moon invites you to have a fun and social weekend, after all, it’s your birthday!

Activity of the week: Party! Throw a party, go to a party, anything that helps you to celebrate!

Leo (July 23- August 22)

With Venus-Jupiter trine, you might find that you have the answers you need to make the changes you want to see in your academic career. But make sure you take it slow, and focus on little goals as you work toward something much bigger. Going along with this, Mercury-Neptune sextile advises you to crawl before you sprint. Instead, Sagittarius moon tells you to express yourself — don’t forget to explore your hobbies and your creative side when you have time away from school! 

Activity of the week: Go to a local coffee shop, grab an iced matcha and spend a little time with your creative side.

Virgo (August 23-September 23)

Struggling with confidence? The Venus-Jupiter trine will help you to see yourself in a new way and embrace some positive self-talk. Similarly, the Mercury-Neptune sextile will help you feel more compassion toward yourself. You’ve been working hard the past few weeks, and you should give yourself credit. This week, the Sagittarius moon is in your home and family zone. Find the people and places who make you feel safe and good about yourself. 

Activity of the week: Write a letter to your future self. This weekend will be the perfect time to stay at home, make yourself cozy and tell yourself ten years from now how proud you are of them.

Libra (September 24- October 23) 

The Venus-Jupiter trine wants you to be more direct with what you want. If you express yourself with clarity and compassion, the answers to your wishes might come your way soon. The Mercury-Neptune sextile will give you clues about your emotional wellbeing and who belongs in your circle. This weekend's Sagittarius moon will have you thirsty for knowledge. Embrace your inner child and explore your interests, if you have even an ounce of free time. 

Activity of the week: Take a stroll around one of ASU’s many exhibits, such as ASU Art Museum or the School of Earth and Space Exploration.

Scorpio (October 24-November 23)

Venus-Jupiter trine challenges you to speak up in relationships — both you and your partner (or friend) deserve a clear understanding! This “speaking up” might not just be verbal. The Mercury-Neptune sextile will improve your nonverbal communication. Work with your hands! Maybe this is a sign to learn some sign language. The Sagittarius moon will help you to connect to wisdom. What can you learn without speaking? This might be the week to figure this out.

Activity of the week: Get outside and paint! Bring your friends and work together to create a masterpiece.

Sagittarius (November 24- December 21) 

The Venus-Jupiter trine wants you to ease your worry by inspiring you to hone in on your values. Celebrate who you are and speak it out into the universe! The Mercury-Neptune sextile motivates you to check on your mindset about money. Do you really need that $80 jacket from that campus street market? This weekend’s Sagittarius moon is all yours! Express and celebrate your strengths.

Activity of the week: Bake yourself a cake.

Capricorn (December 22- January 20)

This week’s Venus-Jupiter trine will remind you that you can only reach a new level of intimacy through vulnerability. Your past is complicated, but your story is only yours to tell. The Mercury-Neptune sextile this week will highlight the importance of emotions in your relationships. It’s okay to cry alone, but don’t shy away from crying with someone else. You might need it! This weekend’s sagittarius moon encourages you to take time to rest and reflect on who you are. Be introspective, but try not to spiral! 

Activity of the Week: Going for a solo stroll around Tempe Town Lake will help you to walk off an emotional week.

Pisces (February 20-March 20) 

It’s friend zone season! The Venus-Jupiter trine blurs the lines between lover and friend. So make sure you communicate with that person. Be sure to stay flexible, and don’t get too attached.

This weekend’s Mercury-Neptune sextile gives you the moment to "test" your friends. Who honors your values? Don’t let someone toxic stick around, especially if they’re leading you on. Have fun this week, but do your homework! The Sagittarius moon is going to help you have a productive weekend.

Activity of the week: Get to know your friends' values better through a fun game like We're Not Really Strangers.
