On Friday, a lunar eclipse in restless Sagittarius will bring a moment of sharp clarity, of visionary honesty, of enormous and much-needed change. The feelings this eclipse brings up might be painful and difficult, but there’s emotional power here if you need it. Don’t turn away from the struggle right now. There’s a bright moon lighting the way; let your rage against the world’s injustice guide you onward.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

Even if you’ve spent your whole life wishing for a better world, you might feel overcome with feelings of fear and uncertainty once it’s truly in your reach. This week, you might be tempted by an urge to turn back — to retreat to the shallows, to return to familiar ground. Try to resist this impulse. Even when change seems unruly, even when the world feels dangerously new, you don’t have to lose your nerve. You’ve been brave enough to live through violence, through sorrow, through scarcity — you’re brave enough, too, to keep pushing toward a beautiful future.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might be haunted by the feeling that there’s something truly big you should be doing, that you must spend every moment heroically, that the ordinary activities that make up a human life are pointless in the face of all this chaos. But this kind of thinking doesn’t reflect the world truly, and it can make your life unbearable. It isn’t your duty to be a hero, or to prove to anyone that you’re worthy and good. Rather, it’s your simple duty to rise to the challenges that meet you — not to shrink from these times, but to meet them with all the courage in your heart.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

As you watch the world spin and burn and change, it’s easy to get the sense that all the truly significant moments are happening elsewhere — that all the opportunities for true courage, true vision, and true joy are in the places you’re not. This week, try to pay careful attention to where you are. There’s the possibility of magic right where you live. There are things still left to learn that will amaze you, and people still left to meet who will make the future worth living for. Your whole life can change right here, if you let it.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

When everyone around you is filled with so much unbearable pain, it can start to seem like weak self-indulgence to have any pain of your own. When other people need so much, it can start to feel like it’s irresponsible to ask them to help you with your own needs, too. But suppressing yourself like this never works for long. Consider, instead, that we are all each other’s responsibilities, and each other’s best supports. This is a week for leaning on other people, so that they can lean back on you too.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

This is a week to step outside of your everyday life. It’s a week to put aside your usual thoughts, your usual longings for comfort and recognition. When the world asks you to put your own needs aside like this, it can feel like you’re being asked to make a sacrifice — but try to see it, instead, as a beautiful opportunity. There’s a wilder, deeper, fuller truth available to you, if you’re willing to broaden your perspective, to see yourself not as an isolated individual but rather as a person among people, as a member of a community, as someone open to the radical possibilities of collective rage and collective care.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might feel unexpectedly lit up with a fresh sense of purpose. There are so many ways to make yourself useful, and you might feel called to do all of them — to move, to act, to share all your strength and courage and care with the people around you. The challenge, right now, is to keep this fire going, to tend to it so it doesn’t exhaust itself. You don’t have to rush in every direction immediately; you don’t have to do everything at once. Instead, use this energy to plan for a longer future, to prepare yourself for the days to come.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might feel as though the world has unexpectedly grown larger around you. It’s a beautiful feeling, but overwhelming, too. When the known world cracks open and offers previously unimagined possibilities, there often comes a feeling of heavy responsibility, too, a fear of being unequal to the task. If you let this fear move through you unchecked, it can make it impossible to move, impossible to take necessary action. So reassure yourself that even if you don’t feel ready for this work yet — if you feel untrained, unsure, inexpert — you’ll become ready in the process of doing it.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

This is a week for figuring out your responsibilities to your neighbors, to your community, to the future you want to live in. Other people might have their own vague ideas about what it is that you “should” be doing, and what it is that you owe the world, but this week isn’t about them. This isn’t a week to indulge your guilt, or your defensiveness, or your secret fears of inadequacy. If you can move through all that and come out on the other side, you’ll find your true moral center, and your own clarity of purpose, and once you’re confident in that, you can begin to do the work.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might find yourself bouncing back and forth between pessimism and a strange and wild euphoria — between an intellectual certainty that things can only get worse, and a stubborn faith that, in spite of it all, a better world is possible. This week, you don’t have to choose between the two. You can accept that the situation feels impossible, and keep moving anyway. You can accept that you’ll never be able to save the world, but you can give it your all anyway — all your effort, all your courage, all your stubborn care.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

It might feel difficult this week to hold onto your impulse to create when there’s so much destruction all around you. When the thing you want most is to build something good, something real, something that will last, it can feel hard and hopeless to witness all our structures crumbling. So this week, remind yourself of everything that hasn’t been lost. Buildings might burn, but your community is still here. Institutions might fall, but that can’t stop you from doing the real work, from working towards the world you want to live in.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

You can find yourself limited, sometimes, by your idea of what kind of person you are. You can feel boxed in by the things other people have told you about yourself, as if your identity is predetermined and immutable. But this is a week to ignore all that. The world is changing; there’s no reason for you not to change with it. This is a week for accessing all your hidden reserves of power, all your secret wells of strength. It’s possible to start living with more boldness than you thought you had in you; it’s possible to become wilder, more courageous, more free.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

This week, it’s going to be so important not to spend all your time inside your own head. It’s going to be so important not to get so trapped in your own dreams that you lose sight of the world around you. Try to operate from the assumption that you have something valuable to offer, that you have something — whether it’s your courage, your care, or your time — that other people need very much. This is a week to seek out ways to share what you have, and to seek out the wild joy of action.
