On Monday, love planet Venus enters wise and intuitive Pisces, and you might feel more tender in your relationships, more dreamy, more connected. On Thursday, communication planet Mercury enters rebellious Aquarius, and your thinking might feel as though it’s finally broken loose from the routine and tedium that used to bind it. You can let your mind grow brilliant and weird and willing to break all the rules.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

This is a week to remind yourself that there’s no returning to the past: no way to un-live the experiences you’ve lived, to un-see the visions you’ve seen, or to un-know the truths you’ve learned. It can seem terrifying to exist with the responsibility of all this knowledge, but you’re strong enough to bear it. You don’t need to retreat to a time when you were smaller. All the sweetness and light you’ve been seeking still exists, but it’s not located behind you. It’s still somewhere up ahead.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

There’s nothing wrong with wanting a world less cruel than this one, with wanting to feel better than this, with deciding that you’re unwilling to let others treat your dreams like they mean nothing at all. This week, you can rediscover what it feels like to really value yourself, to value your time, to believe that your life is important. You can rediscover a sure, unbending strength — a refusal to accept the mistreatment the world directs at you. You can know, with a sweet clear certainty, that you deserve so much better.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes, it seems almost possible to convince yourself that, with enough mental energy, you could think yourself out of any difficult emotion at all. But it doesn’t ever really work this way — your body’s going to keep wanting, and your heart’s going to keep beating, and you need to learn to live with all your needs and desires, no matter how complicated. If you keep moving and keep trying, it’s possible for life to feel like something other than drudgery, like something other than sacrifice.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

When you learn something important — something significant enough to change everything you thought you knew — your mind might need some time to really process it. Your body might need some time to catch up. The world around you might be able to transform in an instant, but that’s too much to ask of your heart; your inner world moves according to a different timeline altogether. So this week, be patient with yourself as you reorient, as you navigate the new space that change has opened up for you.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

This week, you can be conscious of all the ways the world is wearing you down without thinking that means defeat. You can notice each moment of heartache without becoming pessimistic; you can witness each moment of harsh unkindness without thinking it has any bearing at all on your right to live a good life. The hard facts of the world right now don’t change the fact that you still deserve joy, you still deserve sunlight, you still deserve to set your sights on a life full of justice and sweetness.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

You might sometimes find yourself operating from the assumption that you’re out of place, that you were born in the wrong time, that things would be better if you were somewhere other than this. This week, though, try to accept that you’re right where you’re meant to be. Try to believe that you aren’t lost, that you haven’t taken some critical wrong turn or strayed from your rightful path. The world is bright and alive, and it needs you right now, right here. You’re where you’re meant to be.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might feel like you’ve suddenly become more sensitive to the world around you: more attuned to the feelings of other people, more vulnerable to the feelings inside yourself.
Don’t imagine that this sensitivity makes you weak. Think of it as a gift, as a special interpretive power. You can see past surfaces, to the heart of the matter. You can tell the difference between lies — even very beautiful ones — and the truth. You know the difference between wishful thinking and the world as it is.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might feel as though you’re struggling to shrug off an unwelcome, unwanted heaviness. You might feel this heaviness in your limbs, in your eyelids, in your heart. You may be able to free yourself right away, to become light once more. But you may also find that you have to carry the weight with you a little while longer. Give yourself permission to move slower right now, if you have to. If things are still difficult now, they’ll be easier soon. Sadness won’t hold onto you forever.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

Your confidence can protect you some of the time; it can form a layer of armor that keeps you safe and serene. This week, though, it might briefly slip, leaving you suddenly vulnerable to all the world’s deep and swirling chaos. This is an exercise in locating your real power — not just the blithe confidence that you can take on and off like a garment, but the deeper stuff, too: the power located in your history and your bones, the power that won’t leave you.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might need a reminder of how necessary it is to rest sometimes, a reminder that rest is different than idleness or laziness or irresponsibility. It’s not possible, even for you, to work and strive without ceasing. It’s not possible to make unending, uninterrupted progress. Give yourself a moment to stop and breathe, to look at the world around you, to feel the cold morning air on your face. Give yourself a moment to do nothing at all. You aren’t a robot or a machine, and you shouldn’t be treated by one, especially not by yourself.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might notice your thoughts growing clearer again. You might notice your dreams feeling looser again. Even though your body is rooted here on earth, your thoughts can roam and fly, and nobody’s strong enough to stop them. And even though your body has basic, physical needs, your thoughts can be limitless, utterly free. There’s no reason to wait for the world to catch up to you — you can think you way into the future now, and you can start to open doors for the rest of us behind you.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

You might feel an urgent and overwhelming desire to be cared for this week, and to be cared for right: for your needs to be seen and respected and taken seriously. Maybe there’s someone in your life who can care for you exactly the way that you need them to. But it’s more likely, even if you’re surrounded by people who love you, that you’ll have to do some of this work yourself, and there’s nothing wrong with this. It’s good and it’s right to remember how to treat yourself with the kindness you want most.
