Aries forecast for Thursday January 23, 2020

Hope is the psychological equivalent of a painkiller. We store it in our metaphorical bathroom cabinets, so that it can be applied to the inevitable hurts we sustain as we go about our lives. There are few sources of anxiety that don't respond to it. Whatever the cause of upset, hope makes it better. But even though it's wise to apply it to tricky situations, we need to be attentive about the amount we use. It's important to take just enough aspirin to cure a headache; not so much that you mask the cause.

Some of the best singers in the world have never topped the charts and many of the best actors don't walk away with a Golden Globe. Fame isn't the only measure of success. Come to think about it, there are an awful lot of famous people with little discernible talent! If recognition and acclaim are what you're after, it's more important that you focus your efforts on the people whose opinions truly matter - and on those who will be best placed to fully appreciate your talents.

As Saturn and Pluto slowly move apart your powers of perception are growing. Although it seems clear that a process is going to take more time than you'd originally hoped, increased understanding of what's involved means that you understand that nothing is as urgent as it first appeared. You're more than able to comfortably deal with the situation you find yourself in. In fact, a delay will bring you the time to focus on some vital details that would have been overlooked. Take your time.

Like most other kids, my little boy has his name written, in indelible ink, in his school clothes. The aim of this, of course, is to make trips to the lost property cupboard less of an ordeal. As we grow older, some people seem to move the tags from the inside to the outside of garments. Hence Calvin Klein and Yves St Laurent. Although you would like to find a designer-fitting solution to your current problem, you'll be better off focusing on your own identity. You know what to do.

Your Weekly Love Focus Horoscope: They tell us that 'ignorance is bliss'. But the original line, from a poem by Thomas Gray, suggests otherwise; 'where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise' points out that although it's okay to forget about worldly matters for a while, relationships need truth and wisdom in order to thrive. Someone you know has been ignorant about something that others can see. It's time for you to choose some carefully chosen words and stop being complicit. A kindly cosmos will reward you for your compassion.

Your Weekly Horoscope: They tell us that leopards don't change their spots. But are you sure that you've got such a wild beast on your hands? Someone has behaved in a disappointing way and a situation has become uneasy. Yet, even though it would be impossible and unrealistic to expect you to forget what's happened, you can find a way to forgive. People do change. But even if they don't there's little point in holding on to your feelings of resentment. This week, letting go will change a situation, and heal the hurt in you.

It sometimes feels as if we're surrounded by things that we're not supposed to do, think or say. There are legal and moral restrictions and taboos that we have to abide by. We start to learn about them when we're young, and as adults, we share them (often without considering why we follow them) with the younger generation. Every once in a while, though, something happens that calls us to question whether the old rules are still relevant. As Mercury changes signs, one of those rules is changing for you.

They tell us the darkest hour is just before the dawn and that moments of relief are preceded by times of hardship. Yet it's all well and good being able to make sweeping statements when you're looking in on a situation, but it's impossible to keep in mind when you're in the middle of a meltdown. Not that your life is full of stress. But you're dealing with a series of situations that are proving to be hard to sort out. If you step back, and appraise them today, you'll see what needs to be done.
