Last week's new moon was a chance to press reset, to gather yourself up with all your new year resolutions, and buckle down to business. Your weekly Jan. 22, 2018 horoscope is all about the new opportunities that you've created for yourself, as you'll start to notice that your actions are having a ripple effect. Any time you take action toward a goal, you'll start to notice those actions don't take long to pay off, especially following a new moon, as the planetary energy is there to support you. If you have a new business you want to launch, or a raise you want to ask for, a new relationship you'd like to make official; all of these efforts should be made around the time of the new moon.
This week, depending on the area of your life you've taken solid steps forward in, you'll start to see opportunities coming your way. Opportunities that seem to serve as an affirmation that you're moving along the right path in your life right now. Following your intuition and taking a chance to create the life you want is always, always worth the fear you encounter along the way.
