On Wednesday, messenger planet Mercury enters regal Leo, and you might feel your thoughts getting bolder, more grand, more thrilling. Your words can feel like magic, your confidence like a charm, like a spell, like a power you had almost forgotten. How will you use this power to be more alive to the world? How will you use it to love the world better?

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes, the world almost succeeds in making you forget how powerful you really are. Sometimes, it almost gets you to believe that it’s not just your material life but your thoughts and your feelings, too, that are bound by other people’s greed, other people’s insecurities, other people’s rules. This is a week for refusal, a week for returning to yourself. It’s a week for remembering that nobody gets to tell you how to care, and nobody gets to make you hate yourself, not even for a second.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might get the chance to reevaluate what you’re really afraid of; you might find that some of the things you used to fear don’t scare you so much anymore. Maybe it’s because the world has changed around you, or because you’ve grown a little older. Maybe it’s just that you’ve gotten tired of worrying so much. Letting go of an old fear doesn’t have to be dramatic, and it doesn’t even have to feel triumphant. Sometimes, something else becomes more important. Sometimes, you simply can’t be bothered anymore.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

When your energy is sparking, when your mind is hot, you can feel driven to act, to move, to shake everything free that has been stuck. But when your heart yearns this powerfully for action, it can be hard to determine what is the good trouble and what could be left alone; hard to determine where your bright truth-telling is needed, and where you’re just instigating things for the point of instigating. If you’re going to make your move, just do it thoughtfully. If you’re going to tell all the difficult truths, tell them with some care.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

Accepting generosity when it’s offered requires courage and confidence that aren’t always recognized. Offering it, too, isn’t always a soft and tender thing. Kindness can look almost exactly the same as boldness when the situation requires it, and you know this better than almost anyone. This is a week for being bold. It’s a week for loving the world and loving your people and loving yourself, and for being only as quiet as you want to be.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

When the world feels dangerous and your own place in it feels less than secure, it can be hard not to want to hold tight to everything in your life — to try to exert complete control over your own circumstances, so that nothing can surprise you and no one can harm you and nothing can catch you off-balance. But this is a week to loosen your grip a little bit; no matter how hard you try, full control is always going to elude you. There’s joy for you in impermanence, too. There’s joy for you in movement.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might feel like you’re wasting your time if you’re not doing something important. And maybe that’s true and maybe it’s not; it all depends on how broadly, or how narrowly, you’re defining important. “Important” doesn’t mean you have to lose yourself in service to the world; “important” doesn’t mean you never get a moment of easy fun. Even then, you might still be unsatisfied with your time. And if that’s the case, then you can slowly change the way you spend it, day by day.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

It can feel frustrating when the world requires you to narrow your energies to one project at a time. Your mind, after all, is striving to be free, to roam wide, to learn every piece of important information, to get it all right. How can you focus when there’s so much you need to attend to? This week, practice believing that there will still be time left for you, even after this one task is finished. You can do this one thing, then the next, then the next. Time won’t last forever, but it’s not running out yet.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

Being kind to yourself can feel like a strange and faraway concept, something you don’t really need. Or it can feel like something that wouldn’t really matter anyway, given the scope and power of all the darkness the world keeps throwing at you. This week, though, stop trying to convince yourself that you can think your way out of needing a little softness, a little tenderness, a little attention. Practice being kind to yourself, even when it seems like a small, silly gesture. Sometimes things that seem corny still work.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

This week, the risks you’ve taken might start appearing foolish or naïve. You might look at the choices you’ve made in the past and wonder how you could’ve treated your own life, your own heart, so loosely. And it can be valuable to look backward, it can be worthwhile to reassess, but don’t let hindsight make you believe that every risk you’ve taken has been a near miss or a mistake. Boldness has been essential, and it will remain essential, and don’t tell yourself stories that obscure that. Don’t start convincing yourself otherwise.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

This week, it might feel hard to be respectful of other people’s vulnerability—you might feel quick to frustration, wishing that everyone could be less sensitive, less tender, less soft. It’s worth asking yourself, when you’re feeling this way, whether you’re being respectful of your own vulnerability; whether you’re letting yourself be sensitive. The more you try to turn your softness into steel this week, the more frustrating the whole world will seem. And the more you let your soft heart breathe, the more bearable the world around you will become.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

Your worst thoughts about yourself might feel more sneaky, more twisty, more poisonous than usual. And sometimes they keep springing up like weeds, no matter how often you try to pull them up and throw them away, no matter how hard you work to maintain a heart that is clear and even and free. This is a week to let your mind rest from all that. You don’t have to believe every single feeling that moves through your heart. You can let them move through you. You can practice, instead, believing in your power, in your ability to love.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

When you get hit by a wave of shame or fear or regret over something you did many years ago, you can let that feeling roll back off you again, receding into the sea. You don’t have to linger there. Sometimes it’s worth revisiting the past, and sometimes it’s worth acting on your fears. You may decide that you need to. But this is a week for making that decision and not lingering. You can move to make the thing right, or you can move forward into the future, but you can’t stay here in worry forever.
