Horoscope today: Daily guide to what the stars have in store for YOU – January 17, 2024

It’s Jim Carrey‘s birthday and I’ve just rewatched The Truman Show. I’m intrigued by its ability to predict our era of reality TV, and our obsession with pocket-sized cameras! 

I’m also impressed by the film’s editing; compared to some of the latest blockbusters, Truman’s story is told in a speedy 100 minutes. 

As Venus and Saturn link, if we cut out the pleasantries we can get straight to the heart of matters.


March 21 – April 20

If you want to get people to like you, one option is to tell them what they want to hear. But there are disadvantages to this approach. If someone whose views you’ve supported hears you supporting someone whose views are different, you’re in trouble! A similar problem occurs when our words don’t match our actions (something some public figures learn the hard way). Your task today, is to ease a tense situation while staying true to your principles. It might not be easy. But the outcome will gain you respect and support.

April 21 – May 21

We’re all attempting to make progress. But when you think about it, progress doesn’t actually rid us of our problems. It just changes them. It’s worth bearing this in mind today. As your ruler, Venus, links with Saturn (the great cosmic teacher), you have a chance to make one of your most cherished dreams a part of your reality. That’s why it’s worth spending time considering what you really want to happen. You don’t want to waste this opportunity by pursuing an idea that sounds good, but won’t actually make you happier.

May 22 – June 22

We’re all looking for certainty and a sense of long-term security. But, like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it seems that we’re hunting for something intangible. We hold onto our dreams, no matter how unrealistic they might be. And we scan the horizon for something to indicate that we’re on the right path. Could you be focusing on something ‘impossible’ now, which is distracting you from seeing a more attainable goal? With your ruler in earthy Capricorn, a more realistic expectation will lead to an attainable dream.

June 23 – July 23

If you’re wearing trousers with an elastic waistband, it needs to be the right size. If it’s too tight, you’ll be uncomfortable. And if it’s too loose, you’ll be constantly pulling them up! But that doesn’t mean you should rule out elastic waistbands. They just need to be adjusted to the right fit. You’re dealing with a situation that has been exaggerated out of proportion. Today brings the clarity and the pragmatism to make an alteration so that something that seems unsuitable transforms into the perfect fit. How very satisfying!

Once you realise you’ve got the necessary skills, you’ll be able to see how you’ve been preparing for an opportunity to reignite a dull situation. Today, you can start initiating progress.

August 24 – September 23

We see it on social media. People reinvent themselves. Whether it’s a pop star, or a politician, it seems it’s possible to reframe ourselves and set off on a different course. But that’s not your style. You’re not the kind of person who casts their history aside as if it didn’t happen. You don’t like jumping on bandwagons either. Your superpower comes from your acceptance of who you are. Yet that doesn’t mean you can’t change. As a new side to your personality reveals itself, be confident that it’s a natural, positive progression.

There’s no need to worry. All you need is some guidance. Your in-depth forecasts can help at cainer.com


September 24 – October 23

It seems you’re underestimating your good fortune. You’re failing to recognise how much esteem and respect you’re known by, and how much appreciation is being directed towards you. Of course, if you want to carry on thinking that your talents are nothing special then you’re free to continue, in the same way. It’s not my job to force you to change your mindset. But I’d like to suggest that you deserve to think more positively about yourself. As your ruler links with Saturn, you can tap into the self-belief you’ve been missing. Good.

October 24 – November 22

Imagine that your kitchen needs retiling. You find someone to do the job, explain what you want, and leave them to it. On your return, they’ve not only completed the task, they’ve painted the walls and changed the work surface. Even if the kitchen looks better (and they’re charging a good price) you’re entitled to be cross. They’ve gone above and beyond their remit, and enforced their choices on you. Today, make sure you know the difference between doing what you’re asked to do and what you think you need to do.

November 23 – December 21

To optimists like you, most ideas seem like good ideas. Unless, of course, they’re miserable ideas that involve obligations and restrictions. Fortunately, since these gloomy concepts rarely masquerade as ‘good’, you spot them early, and don’t get too involved. Yet sometimes good ideas only seem good until they’re put into practice; that’s when reality kicks in, and problems are exposed. For an idea to remain positive today, you just need to give it a helping hand. Your ability to encourage and support others is key to its success.

December 22 – January 20

Before we arrived on planet Earth, none of us could have envisaged that we’d spend so much time dealing with annoying situations and irritating, endless challenges. Surely, that’s not how life is meant to be? So, why do we end up running around, dealing with irksome dramas? Don’t they stop us realising our potential? As Venus (pleasure) links with your ruler, Saturn, today, it brings a chance for you to clearly see what matters to you. It’s a gift that enables you to prioritise and focus on what you really need/want to do.

You’ve got lots to look forward to. The inspiration you need is in your in-depth forecasts at cainer.com


January 21 – February 19

It takes courage to face the truth. That’s why apprehension and denial go hand-in-hand. And it’s why we tend to bury our heads in the sand when we feel nervous. We think that maybe, if we ignore a problem for long enough, it will simply evaporate. It takes real bravery and determination to look at situations that scare us and resolve to deal with them, even when we can’t see a way forwards, or picture a satisfying outcome. But if you take a good look at a source of concern today, you’ll start to see a way to change it, for the better.

February 20 – March 20

Some people are so unpredictable they seem to change their mind as often as they change their socks. Yet the flip side of their inconsistency is an ability to adapt to life’s ever-changing demands. Your natural ability to ‘go with the flow’ makes it hard for some people to keep up with you. Which can be frustrating. Today, as Venus links with Saturn, it enables you to assess your current situation and make a firm decision about where to direct your energy. If you share your insight, you’ll get the support you need. And that will feel good.
