Chances are, last week’s full moon in Leo changed how you view or express yourself. (It isn’t considered the most dramatic zodiac sign for nothin’.) Thankfully, your weekly horoscope for January 28 to February 3, 2024, could bring confirmation that you’re on the right path and reveal new sources of support.

But first, some intensity: You could feel called to make a decision that feels fated on January 28 when Mars in Capricorn forms a tense square with the lunar nodes, or invisible points in the sky where the moon’s orbit intersects with the Earth’s. Whatever big choice you may make on this day has the potential to alter your life’s path. The good news is, on the same day, communication-oriented Mercury forms a supportive trine with rebellious Uranus, inspiring innovative thinking. You’re able to seek solutions and utilize your intuition to make decisions you’ll stand by in the future.

Also that same day, love-planet Venus trines fortuitous Jupiter. These two planets are considered the luckiest in the sky (AKA, the "benefics")—and when they mingle, we can feel more emotionally and financially grounded. This could bring more tender interactions with loved ones… or on the resources front, perhaps a helpful raise or overdue promotion.

The following day, January 29, brings another positive trine, this time between Uranus and action-oriented Mars. The energy encourages you to ditch what you know and try something new. You’re ready to leave your comfort zone, and as a reward, you can make some unexpected progress on one of your goals.

You’re ready to leave your comfort zone, and as a reward, you can make some unexpected progress on one of your goals.

As the week wraps up, you could feel more compassion toward and understanding of others with communicative Mercury in Capricorn sextiling dreamy Neptune in Pisces. The Neptune energy in the air also makes it an aligned time to engage in a spiritual practice—as does the last quarter moon in moody Scorpio on the same day, which will push you to reflect on what in your life you may be ready to release.

To get a closer look at what these cosmic shifts have in store for you, read on to find your zodiac sign’s weekly horoscope for January 28 to February 3, 2024. (Note: You’ll want to check your sun sign and your rising sign for the best idea of what to expect.)
