Horoscopes: Your Co(s)mic Week Ahead

By Julia Hammond
24th Jan 2017

Wave hello to a four-day work week, and goodbye to your dignity because, well, Australia Day? 


There are plenty of great things about this week but best of all you’re about to be in luck. The 26th is both a major Australian holiday and one of your lucky numbers. Don’t waste an opportunity to do something brave.

Where you need to go this week: Make the most of your lucky day


Let’s face it, not every week is going to be your week. If you’re feeling stuck in a ‘grass is always greener’ whirlwind try tapping into your musical sensibilities to break free from a drab routine.

Where you need to go this week: Get started with these tunes.


Feeling impulsive? Roll with it. Book that trip you keep putting off, set up that Tinder date and buy that thing from your wish list. Nothing beats a good mid-week indulgence.

Where you need to go this week: Travel inspiration sorted.


Everybody falls in a rut sometimes so don’t feel bad if you haven’t escaped your 2016 cocoon just yet.  Three weeks into the New Year it’s about time you became a 2017 butterfly. A fashion forward step may be just the thing you need.

Where you need to go this week: Your comprehensive style guide awaits. 


So you’re regretting that thing you did. Don’t stress, by the end of the week you’ll have much more clarity and energy to act. Get together with family and friends this weekend for a chilled out meal and some much-needed venting.

Where you need to go this week: Give this cool place a go. 


Needless to say, you need the extra day off this week. The start of 2017 has not been kind to you (because your moon stars are unaligned, obviously), so we recommend staying indoors and avoiding every other human this Australia Day.

Where you need to go this week: Absolutely nowhere. Make smashed avo at home instead.


So you’ve gone and committed to a sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free diet to celebrate (ha) 2017 and you’re feeling the cold, harsh hammer of regret? Too bad, since you announced your diet on Facebook and to every other living human who would give you the five minutes you need to explain what you’re NOT ABLE TO EAT AT THE MOMENT.

Where you need to go this week: Find some gluten-free beer for Australia Day. You’ve already committed.


Unlike those Leo fools, you made no health resolutions for 2017. On Thursday you’re set to bounce into your Australia Day party with the gleefully light step of someone who hasn’t overcommitted in every aspect of their life.

Where you need to go this week: Go get some Nutella burgers, just because you can. 


No news for you this week Libras, maybe it’s time to make some plans to go out?

Where you need to go this week: You’ve got to start somewhere, maybe try dinner here.


Dear Scorpios, after last year’s Australia Day incident, the universe (and your best friend) has been begging you to avoid a repeat this Thursday. There’s a little whiny voice urging you to listen, but where’s the fun in that?

Where you need to go this week: Stay at home and power through these adult drinking games, like a proper adult.


Decision-making is not your strong point this week. Not only will any decision making cause your blood pressure to reach new heights, it’s also not worth the effort.

Where you need to go this week: Avoid decisions and head to a café with a breakfast board.


Get out, literally and figuratively. It’s for your own good.

Where you need to go this week: Where better to leave, then the sunny suburb of Coburg?
