Early Thursday morning, communication planet Mercury enters inquisitive Scorpio. You might feel yourself becoming more sharply observant, your thoughts and your words more honest, more intense. This transit might offer you the focus you need for getting to the bottom of things, and the courage to speak the truth. Then, early on Friday morning, aggression planet Mars enters charming and tactful Libra: No matter how clear the truth is, no matter how clearly you see the world’s darkness, it might be difficult to take aggressive action. You may find yourself choosing diplomacy and charm instead.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

If your body wants to slow down a little bit this week, let it. This is a week to remind yourself that you’re just doing the best that you can. You don’t have to operate at full capacity all the time. You don’t have to rush headlong into every opportunity that presents itself, and it’s important not to keep pushing yourself until you drop from exhaustion. If you do, you’ll miss out on all that stillness has to offer you: rest, regrowth, a chance to restore your energy for the days when you’ll need it most.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

If you’ve forgotten how to let yourself be nurtured and loved, this is a week to teach yourself again. Even if you’re skilled at caring for other people, at offering them exactly the love that they need, it’s an entirely different challenge to accept the care other people have to give to you. Don’t pretend that you’re fine without it, that you’ve never needed or wanted love anyway. Let yourself need other people, just as they’ve always needed you. It’s scary and strange, and it’s worth it.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

This week, you’ll be offered a chance to let some things go. This opportunity could present itself in a variety of ways: It could be that you’ll decide to no longer be bothered by some irritation that’s been following.Or you may run into someone who wronged you long ago and decide, to your own surprise, that you simply no longer care. You might find that your energies are needed elsewhere, that your rage has more pressing targets. Letting things go isn’t always so easy, but this week, it might be.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

So much of the time, you’re willing to tolerate a certain amount of imbalance in your relationships. You’re willing to offer the people you love everything you can give, regardless of what they offer you in return. This week, check the balance of love in your life. Are you getting what you need? Are you giving far more than anyone can ever give back to you? This week, don’t let the imbalances slide. Keep giving what you can, but not so much that your own heart winds up empty.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

This week, it might feel strangely difficult to know how to respond to conflict, to crises, even to small disagreements. Normally, you’re so sure on your feet and quick to make a move, but you might feel unusually hesitant right now — and that’s okay. Don’t force yourself to act when you aren’t ready, and don’t force yourself to argue for a position you’re not yet sure you even agree with. You can move as slowly and carefully as you need to. You can take your time gathering the information you’ll need. You can keep your balance and refuse to be rushed by anyone.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

It’s so important not to disregard pleasure this week. You might already know, intellectually, that enjoying all that life has to offer is important, but so often, your work gets in the way. So often, your obligations end up coming first, and pushing everything else aside. So this week, no matter what else happens, try to make time for indulging your senses. Make time to notice the beauty of the sky, or to appreciate the sweetness of your friendships.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

This week, you’ll have the opportunity to reconsider the futures you’ve dreamed of for yourself. It isn’t that you should become less ambitious, or that you should stop wanting a good and beautiful life. Rather, this week is about allowing the scope of your vision to expand, and allowing your dreams to change course. If you give yourself permission to lay down the dreams that have become burdens and not beacons, you might find what you’ve actually been seeking all this time.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

When the world feels overwhelming, it can make you defensive. It can make you turn to tactics of avoidance and escape, or it can send you deep into your own head, where the rest of the world can’t reach you. This week, you might have better results if you remain steady, if you refuse to retreat. You can trust your ability to participate in the messy world without losing yourself; you can engage with other people with a full heart, and your full heart won’t betray you.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

Give yourself permission to do the things you’re good at; give yourself permission to do what you enjoy. It’s worthwhile to keep growing, keep challenging yourself, keep risking failure, but don’t reserve all of your energy for only the labor that feels difficult. This week, remember to use your talents, too. Follow your natural inclinations and see where they lead you. Do the work that feels right, and remember that it doesn’t need to feel like suffering.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

This week, don’t attempt to be hard or unbending; steeliness won’t save you right now. You aren’t impermeable, and this is a week to embrace the softer parts of your life. It’s a week to hold the people who love you, and to invest as much in your relationships as in your ambitions. If you’re kind to other people this week, it will lead to surprising rewards down the road, but it will also bring you good and beautiful things right now.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes, balance can feel the same as stasis. Sometimes, you can feel like you need to cause a disturbance, to make some noise, just to make sure you’re actually living. This week, though, the world might remind you that you can move while keeping your balance; you can change without blowing up your whole life. If you maintain your composure right now, it may lead to wild and beautiful change in the future. Holding steady can offer you power and strength beyond what you could’ve even imagined.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

This week, allow some space for your relationships to change, and for your feelings to breathe. Even the sweetest intimacy and even the most powerful love won’t stay the same forever, so don’t expect them to. It’s possible that your needs have shifted, or that your heart has changed, or that the world you live in has become unrecognizably new. Think about new ways to offer your love in a changed world, and don’t be alarmed if other people offer you different kinds of love, too. Change doesn’t mean that you’re losing something.
