ELLE Horoscope, The Week Ahead:11- 17 January 2017

Will there be time to blow out the 53 candles in the whirlwind of packing up the last eight years and getting ready for the big move? In her time as First Lady she’s become not only a healthy role model for women, but somewhat of a fashion icon, as well. The whole world’s curious about what her next chapter holds. For now we wish Michelle Obama many happy returns.

Capricorn: 22 December – 19 January  Even if it’s your birthday week, dear Goat, a full Moon in Cancer expects you to share the limelight and consider the needs of your nearest and dearest alongside your own, especially if there are big changes to navigate on the home front.

Aquarius 20 January- 18 February  You’re no stranger to change, Visionary, but when daily routines are in a state of upheaval, sleep patterns and eating habits are easily upset, too. This full Moon reminds you of the importance of having your kitchen in order.

Pisces: 19 February-20 March  There’s no way to find time for all the things on this week’s to-do list, darling Mermaid, even if you’re swimming in two directions at once. Welcome the weekend wearing rose-coloured glasses and recuperate with an infusion of art and beauty.

Aries: 21 March – 19 April  Most of the time you’re content to let your passions and convictions speak for themselves, darling Aries. This week if you find yourself playing devil’s advocate, it may be an indication that the person you’re trying hardest to convince is yourself.

Taurus: 20 April -20 May  Normally, you have no trouble attending to practical matters, a good thing with so many bread-and-butter issues on your plate, but Venus and Neptune could throw a wrench in the works this week, giving the pursuit of pleasure the upper hand.

Gemini: 21 May – 21 June  No matter how much socialising you hope to squeeze in this week, your ruling planet has come back to earth again, Butterfly, turning your focus towards business. It’s time to make sure your accounts are in order for the new year.

Cancer: 22 June – 22 July  During your full Moon week, it’s entirely possible that we’ll find you working out life’s frustrations in the kitchen, apron-clad, cooking up a storm OR in front of the big screen indulging in a rom-com binge armed with a glass of wine and a box of tissues. Either works.

Leo: 23 July – 22 August  You may crave adoration and love being in the public eye, but a Lioness occasionally needs to retreat into her lair for some quiet time on her own. When a busy work schedule prevents that from happening, we may well hear your ROAR in the next province.

Virgo: 23 August – 22 September That over-active mind needs a practical focus to keep yourself from worrying about things over which there’s little control. Once you take the reins, darling Virgo, you can motivate yourself and your team to create something top notch.

Libra: 23 September – 23 October  This full Moon makes you the center of attention at work. Yes, you’ve got leadership abilities, but there’s something more, dear Libra, that makes your co-workers pledge their allegiance through thick and thin.

Scorpio 24 October – 22 November  You’ve had some difficult things on your plate these last weeks, Phoenix, and the cumulative effect may lead you to snap over the slightest interruption. When it’s all feeling like too much to bear, take some time off work to heal.

Sagittarius: 23 November – 21 December  You may think you’re the easiest person in the world to get along with, Wanderer, but what makes you comfortable and secure this week might not mesh with the needs of your significant other. It’s all about give and take, darling.
