This week begins with a full moon in impulsive Aries on Sunday. Expect some kind of culmination, or a breaking point, or a release. If you’ve been seeking clarity, this moon might offer you the light you need to see by. If you’ve been seeking closure, this moon might give you the courage to finally let an old feeling go. Your emotions will burn more brightly than usual, and they’ll be undeniably your own.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

There’s a kind of romance in the idea that you can live your life without ever needing anyone else, relying only on what exists within the limits of your own body. Such independence can bring you incredible power, but don’t fool yourself into thinking you can do everything on your own. When difficulties arise this week, remember that you’re positioned in a network of other people. Being able to rely on them isn’t a sign of weakness, but rather an opportunity, a gift.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes you feel so burdened by outside opinions that it feels difficult just to live. When you look at the people around you, it can seem as though they’re able to live with so much more freedom, as though they’re able to shrug off other people’s judgments and live exactly how they want. This kind of freedom can look like a superpower, but it’s not. With practice and some stubborn will, it’s available to you, too. This week, don’t look for anybody else’s approval of your heart. You don’t need it.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

It’s possible that you’ve felt weak and ineffective lately, as though your goals are always slipping just out of your grasp. It’s possible that your vision, usually so focused and crisp, has felt hazy. This is a week for rediscovering your sources of power. This is a week for immersing yourself in the situations that make you feel strong again. This might mean becoming loud or bold or unyielding, but it doesn’t have to. You might find the strength you need in friendship, in movement, in living every moment like you’re free.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

No matter how well you’ve learned to stand up for yourself, there are still times when it feels almost impossible to do. There always remain contexts where you struggle to voice your dissent, and people whose emotional needs are unbearably difficult to deny. The hardest thing of all can be learning to say no to the people who love you best. Even so, keep practicing. It’s okay to assert a boundary, okay to value your own needs. This week, it’s possible to say no with love.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

When the world feels difficult to understand, it’s easy to operate from an assumption that the truth must be very complicated or very strange, hidden somewhere deep underground. This week, start from the assumption that things might be simpler than you thought. Start from the assumption that people are telling you the truth about themselves. If someone says they can’t give the care you need, that might be the simple truth. And if someone says that they love you, maybe you can assume it’s as simple as that.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

You’re very good at trusting your instincts, normally. It’s more difficult to trust your preferences, your affinities, the arrows that direct your desires. Though it can be useful not to take your own tastes too seriously, that doesn’t mean you should disregard them entirely. This week, pay attention to the art you simply like, to the songs and stories that move you. Follow your own pleasure this week, and see what it has to show you.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

So much in the world is frightening and bad, but it’s important not to lend too much credence to the people telling you things are darker than they really are. So much in the world is deadly serious, but that doesn’t mean you have to treat every moment and every encounter as potentially dangerous. Openness to the world around you will be rewarded this week. Believing in other people will bring you good things.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might feel a clear awareness of cause and effect in your life. You might be sharply attuned to the way events unravel, and the way people react to each other. Still, it’s so important not to imagine that you know how everything will end. Don’t let yourself imagine that you’ve lost the ability to be surprised. There’s vulnerability in being unable to predict all that’s ahead, but by opening yourself to surprise, you open yourself up to unimagined sweetness, too.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

This week, some pain you’ve lived with for a long time might gently, slightly recede. Some tight anxiety you’ve carried in your body might quietly ease. This isn’t the end of sadness or worry, but it might become easier, at least for now, to live. It might become easier to be generous with yourself, and to connect with other people again. You can remember how to charm the world, and you can remember what it feels like to love and be charmed by your own mind.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

This is a week for making space in your life for softness, even when it doesn’t feel like you’ve earned it. This is a week for allowing yourself some unproductive pleasure, even if it feels like your entire life is made of nothing but work. You need to accept that you can’t out-think or out-work or out-run your humanness: You’re made of desire, same as everyone else. You’re made to work and to try, but also to enjoy your days on earth, just like everyone else.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

No matter how comfortable you feel with the idea of change in the abstract future, it can still be frightening to face change in your actual, everyday life. But you’re living and growing all the time, and no fear is strong enough to stop that. This week, think about the ways you’ve changed, and try to notice the sweetness these changes have brought you. Hold onto the knowledge that even small changes can work real magic. Hold onto this knowledge that you’re capable of transforming your everyday life after all.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

It’s possible that your emotions will leave you feeling lonely this week. It’s so easy to imagine that nobody has ever loved the world quite the way you do, or that nobody has felt as you do now. If the loneliness becomes hard to bear, or if it begins to harden into resentment, do your best to return to the world of other people. Look to those who have been here before you. Look to those who experience the universe as intensely as you do, for they do exist.
