The sun and Mercury are both still in bright, curious, unpredictable Gemini, and the waning moon will move through Aries, Taurus, and Gemini this week. This will provide a chance to ask the questions that glimmer inside you, a chance not to be held down by anyone else’s limited expectations — a chance to see yourself and your whole life anew.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

When you’re so tightly focused on your own ambitions, when the strength of your desire makes everything around you look like either a barrier or a tool, it can be hard to notice the moments when other people are being generous with you, and the moments when you have a chance to be generous in return. But this week, try to prioritize generosity when you can, both in your relationships with other people and in your relationship with yourself. Generosity can feel like a soft, unwieldy thing, but this week it might light your way more brightly than power or courage.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes what feels like a loss is more than only a loss. Sometimes what feels like an ending is more than that too. Endings and beginnings come in pairs. This week holds possibility in strange places: in the darkened corners you keep avoiding or in the long, dull moments that look at first like nothing much at all. This isn’t to say that everything in the whole world is good and bright and easy, just that you aren’t trapped, and you aren’t doomed, and your world isn’t ending yet.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

This is a week to respect your ideas — even the weird ones, even the unrealistic ones, even the ones that might never, not ever, amount to anything. Sometimes your thoughts can feel so light and plentiful that you may believe each one holds no particular value, but that isn’t exactly true. You don’t have to take action on every single movement of your mind, but it’s worth it to write them in a journal, diagram them on a piece of old paper, tell them to your friend. Doing so can help you remember that you exist, just like this.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

This week you might feel certain bad feelings — maybe doubt, or some small creeping insecurity, or boredom with yourself or your life — quietly receding. This doesn’t mean you’ve vanquished every bad feeling forever, just that there’s no room for them in your brain right now. The world is offering you wildness or confidence or a bright, thrilling clarity instead. Try to move toward this, to reach out and hold it. What kind of work can it give you the strength to complete? What kind of love can it give you the strength to express?

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

It isn’t unreasonable to need so much compassion, attention, or honesty from the people around you. It isn’t unreasonable to need love to sustain you when the world is heavy and strange. And yet even the people who love you best might not be able to be everything you need right now. Try your best to love them anyway, through all their unpredictable weirdness. Sometimes the sustenance you really need comes in surprising forms. Sometimes this is how you get what you never knew you really needed.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

This week you may find yourself able to read things you’ve written in the past — letters, papers, or poems — without drowning in nostalgia or shame. You may find yourself able to remember the ways you’ve felt in the past without drowning in the confusion of having changed your mind since then. This week, looking backward can be a way of gauging the distance you’ve traveled, a way of noticing change, a way of seeing with a new, sharp clarity exactly where you are right now. It’s surprising, sometimes, to be reminded of your enduring capacity for growth. What will you use it for now?

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

It can be a good, brave thing to choose a side, to take a strong position, to risk being wrong. You might find yourself speaking before you’re entirely ready this week or making choices before you’ve fully considered them. This can feel unnatural, but it isn’t something to worry about. After all, it’s a good, brave thing to change your mind when conditions change or when you change. Decisions, even hasty ones, open up new universes of possibilities, and this is a week for creating possibilities for yourself.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

Being mysterious may not serve you well right now. There are better strategies than holding all your cards tight to your chest. Sometimes the best way to learn and find answers is by moving through the world quiet and unseen, keeping your eyes open and your mouth shut. This week, though, you might be surprised how much you can learn when you just ask the questions that come into your head, when you just go ahead and say the thing, when you play your cards first and then watch what happens.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

This week, think of the conversations and connections you have with other people as the soil that your own magic grows from. Your social interactions hold the potential not just for discomfort but for the kind of bright, sparkling wildness that makes you feel fully yourself and fully alive. Sometimes the stuff you’re looking for — secrets, stories, or wisdom — can be found somewhere deep in your own mind. This week, though, pay attention to the world of other people. This is where you’ll find what you really need.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

There’s an important difference between procrastination and the understanding that everything can’t get done at once.
This is a week for understanding that if some tasks have to be done now, then some must wait until later. Sometimes, though, it’s not even an important task that preoccupies you but rather some rare thrill that needs to be experienced right now. Each of these choices is valid, so let yourself choose. It might not feel like it, but this too is a kind of wise pragmatism.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

This week, the first step is to remember how to anchor yourself in your life. Can you hold on to the best, most beautiful stillness deep in your center? Can you hold on to your pure, unwavering knowledge of who you are and what you love? If you can do this, you can explore the entire world without getting lost. You can let your mind spin and go wild with freedom. You can explore and experiment, you can test ideas out, you can gaze into distant futures, and you won’t lose yourself or your way back home again.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

It’s so important to remember that you’re allowed to have ideas that don’t blossom into full-fledged plans. Having an idea, even speaking that idea out loud, doesn’t mean you’re agreeing to anything yet. It doesn’t mean you’re committing. It doesn’t mean you’re signing away your time, your energy, or your soul. This is a week to practice wanting and dreaming, to practice having and sharing ideas, just for the sheer creative joy of it. You can decide later which are good enough to hold, good enough to move with, good enough to keep.
