Your horoscope for the week ahead: Let go of your insecurities — it’s time to shine | CBC Life


Got your eye on something new? When love-and-money-ruling Venus sextiles innovative Uranus on Wednesday, you’ll have a chance to get your hands on the cash needed to make that purchase or project happen. Just avoid letting these funds burn a hole in your pocket before you can put them toward your dream investment. This transit also encourages socializing and dating, making it a beautiful day to let go of insecurities, show off your sparkling personality and invite new people into your life. Take the opportunity to begin the day on a bright note and wear an outfit that makes you feel like your best self.

We’ll feel our wits sharpen as investigative Mercury conjuncts transformative Pluto on Friday. This transit can help us make adjustments in our lives and really get down to the bottom of things. Just remember that information is power — ensure you have all the facts before making any critical decisions. The energy of these planets aligning in practical Capricorn can also help you show off your smarts in ways that’ll further your reputation. If you’ve been looking for a chance to move up at work, this could be the time to make your intentions known. 

Then on Saturday, intelligent Mercury enters forward-thinking Aquarius, allowing our imaginations to thrive and our conversations to get more spontaneous. The planet of communication works harmoniously in this fixed air sign, helping us to be more idealistic as we drum up new ideas for improving our world. But while this transit can encourage us to think for ourselves, it can also make us a bit hard-headed. Try your best to keep an open mind when conversing with others during this period, which will last until March 2.

Here is your horoscope for the week of Monday, Feb. 6, 2023.


Transformative insights await this week, Aries. Taking a closer look at your finances could even lead you to an important discovery that will welcome more abundance into your life. Just be sure to spend any extra cash you come across on something truly worthwhile. Toward the end of the week, you may start to experience some growing pains at work. Pay attention to any feelings that show up — they can help steer you in the direction of positive change. Meanwhile, a little socializing could help to re-invigorate you. Remember that errands and workouts don’t have to be boring — invite your friends to join you to make the most of your time.


Converse with friends old and new to propel your career forward this week, Taurus. Getting into it with your besties could help you reassess your goals and tweak your existing plans, while new people in your social circle may inspire you to take a leap of faith or claim your existing victories at work. Harness any newfound confidence you gain to stand up for your worth in ways that will increase your earning potential. Meanwhile, if you’re in a relationship, you may want to do a little digging into any shared resources you have. You’ll be happy that you gave some thought to your security and stability as the weekend approaches. 


A chance encounter could shake up your world early this week, Gemini. Try your best to enjoy the ride and see where fate takes you; it just might transform your career and usher you down a path filled with experiences you’ve only dreamed of. Later, your attention may shift to taking care of family business. If tending to outstanding paperwork or tasks sheds light on an issue that’s been wearing on you, use your instincts to help determine how you can move forward with grace. On the weekend, you may feel the urge to begin planning out your next big excursion or home project. Spend time gathering inspo, and let your imagination wander. 


You can learn a lot from your loved ones, Cancer. And this week, information gleaned from your nearest and dearest may inspire you to dream up an exciting project to collaborate on with friends. This new venture could also help you to create cash, so be sure to put your thinking hat on. Meanwhile, if talking about your beliefs with people you trust raises an issue that requires further consideration, think about how you can get on the same page without compromising your morals. You’ll be able to discuss tricky subjects with a thick skin this weekend, so don’t hesitate to use your tough crab shell to work through any big problems then. 


Don’t be afraid to work your connections, Leo. Early this week, calling in favours that you’re owed at work could lead you to exciting new opportunities. Take time to pay back any acts of kindness that you’ve been meaning to return, too; doing so will help you to uplift your image and keep your professional relationships in check. Meanwhile, if you’ve been wondering about how you can increase your wealth of late, you could find it helpful to go over your budget with people you trust. Discussing money habits with your loved ones may allow you to pinpoint any unnecessary spending. By the weekend, you’ll be ready to move forward and take better care of your cash.


Leave no stone unturned, Virgo. If you’ve been looking for ways to finance your latest project, you could end up finding answers in an unexpected place this week. But as potential collaborators start popping out of the woodwork, be discerning. You’ll only want to discuss your bright ideas with people you trust and can see yourself partnering with. At the end of the week, a little brainstorming at work could help you to drum up some fresh inspiration. If these discussions happen to bring larger issues to light, try your best to switch gears and solve them. Once you’ve conquered your more significant responsibilities, you’ll be able to truly find your flow. 


Keep an eye out for the unexpected, Libra. While plugging away your to-do list this week, you could end up making some crucial self-realizations. Perhaps it’s time to identify opportunities where you can switch up your routine and take some calculated risks that excite you. Meanwhile, if you’ve been considering making a few adjustments to your space, know that there might be a critical detail hiding in the woodwork. Allow yourself extra time to mull things over before breaking out your wallet. By the weekend, you’ll be ready to let go of all earthly responsibilities. Harness this energy to nurture your inner creative and explore new friendships.


You don’t love it when people pry into your affairs, Scorpio. Still, it’s important to remind yourself that, for the most part, your loved ones want what’s best for you. If you’re single, perhaps they’re eager to discover what’s going on in your love life. Listening to their advice this week may even help to spur you on a new romantic journey. Meanwhile, talking with people you trust about the things that make you tick could prove extra enlightening. Seize this moment to delve into any facets of your personality that you’d like to work on. If you’re really ready to look inward, you could have a chance to rise to the next level of your personal evolution.


Are you stuck in a rut, Sagittarius? You may find moving some things around in your space helps encourage new thoughts. Re-arranging art or furniture, for example, could spark fresh inspiration. And who knows, in the process, you could also come across old passion projects or memories that you’ve been meaning to revisit. Meanwhile, if you’re someone who loves to say, “I told you so,” you may need to work extra hard to contain your enthusiasm this week when you find cracks in a loved one’s plan — especially if they’re your partner. Try your best to exercise compassion as you help them check for mistakes or irregularities that require sorting out. 


You could have an opportunity to bring joy back into your work this week, Capricorn. Casual conversations with your colleagues may even inspire you to harness your creativity to drum up some extra cash. Meanwhile, if you’ve been feeling like your ideals and identity are not lining up as much as you’d like them to lately, that’s OK. Toward the end of the week, you’ll be able to see yourself more clearly, making it an ideal time to consider how you can better align your actions with your values. If you can come to terms with the fact that it could be time to modify your responsibilities and schedule, you’ll be on track to achieving the balance you’ve been seeking. 


Is your space a bit of a blank canvas at the moment, Aquarius? As the week kicks off, you may find yourself motivated to make some exciting changes. Discussing interior design with people you trust could even spark ideas that you can make a reality with some ingenuity and crafty thinking. Later in the week, you may be feeling particularly contemplative about your career and the impact you have on the world. You could be on the precipice of a decision that will alter your professional course. But first: take a moment to evaluate what small changes you can make to your current position to increase your overall happiness as well. 


You have the ability to make dazzling impressions on people, Pisces. So this week, take the time to step out of your comfort zone and connect with others in your community. Who knows, it could even lead you to an exciting new friendship or romantic relationship. Toward the end of the week, conversations with friends could reignite past power struggles that perhaps only you were fully aware of. Harness your sensitive spirit to find ways to help straighten things out without ruffling feathers. Then, on the weekend, allow yourself to get lost in a fantasy from the comfort of your home.
