After a few weeks of big planetary shifts, this week offers fewer major events, but that doesn’t mean you’ll feel like things have calmed down. Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are all still retrograde, and Mercury is in its pre-retrograde shadow phase, preparing to station retrograde next week. We’re also right between last week’s lunar eclipse and next week’s solar eclipse. This is a week of uncertainty, but of possibility, too. There’s no return to normalcy; expect constant change.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

This is a week for rebuilding your depleted sense of courage, for remembering how bold you really are. In times of crisis, when so much of your energy goes to just reacting and surviving, it can be strangely easy to forget how much power you can wield. So this week, when you can, give yourself a moment to rest. Try to get the sleep that you’ve been missing, call your friend who loves you best, eat a meal that fills you up. This is how you can stay fully alert to this moment, and how you can return to the work with a full heart.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

This is a week for being open to changing your mind. It sounds like a small thing, but to really change your thinking, to really grow, is one of the hardest things there is. It can mean rewriting your own past; it can mean re-evaluating everything you thought you knew about your life; it can mean leaving the comfort of certainty behind. There’s an element of grief in all of this, but it’s still worth it — not just for the sake of being right, but for the sake of your future., Admitting you were wrong will allow sweet new possibilities to bloom where you once thought there was only pain.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

It’s natural to feel overwhelmed by all the world’s violence, to feel worn down by the senseless cruelty of the people in power. But try not to retreat into hopelessness or cynicism; try not to renounce all your faith that things can be different. Instead, pay attention to the fresh feeling of solidarity all around you. Lean into your connections, your shared hopes and shared visions and shared futures with the people around you. If you start to feel lost, you can look to other people, and you can travel together.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

The more tired you get, the more appealing it might seem to accept some kind of compromise. This week, you might feel tempted to accept the most limited signs of progress if they mean that you can finally stop fighting for a moment, that you can go home and rest. But this is not the time to be appeased. It’s a week to ask for more, to keep pushing, to aim not for half-measures, but for the whole beautiful thing. If you refuse to accept crumbs, you’ll be rewarded for not giving up too quickly.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

In the face of so much violence, it’s easy to tie yourself into knots as you try to determine the best, most ethical, most useful way to be living. There are so many different, conflicting voices telling you what is right and what is needed most, and this can make it difficult to make any choices at all. This week, you shouldn’t pressure yourself to be heroic or perfect — you aren’t in this alone, so don’t imagine the fate of the world rests on your shoulders. Your responsibility is simply to show up, and keep showing up.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

People might start trying harder than ever to persuade you to ease off of your demands, to let go of your boldest goals, to accept the scraps they say are better than nothing. People might start telling you that the strategic thing to do, at this point, is to take whatever you’ve been offered, rather than risk losing it all. But really, this is a week to push harder. It’s a week to keep moving, to stay committed to the dream. There’s a crack in the future and your job is to open it wider, to let the sunlight stream in.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

When everything seems to be happening at once, it’s so easy to get thrown off balance, to find yourself in a state of constant reactivity with no chance to rest or reflect or plan. So this week, do your best to find some time to sit with yourself, to think about how you’ve been living and how you want to live, to think about how to bring your life in closer alignment with your values. There’s a wild and fearless sense of possibility in the air, and this is a week for thinking about how you’ll use it, and how you’ll make it last.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

There are so many ways that others will try to distract you this week — with gestures, with symbolism, with empty promises for change. They might try to convince you that all the violence you’ve witnessed was necessary, or that it wasn’t really that bad, or that you never really saw it at all. They might try to tell you that all the cruelty was justified, or that you were overreacting. But this is a week to remind yourself that you know better, and your vision is clear and true, and that you can fight for the future you want.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

Others might tell you that now is the time to be reasonable, to get realistic, to buckle down and focus on practicalities. But there’s still wild magic that can happen when you refuse to limit your imagination, when you refuse to stop wanting more. The world has changed so much and so quickly, and there’s no reason it should stop now. There’s no reason to believe that we can’t create even more change. Futures that seem impossible — futures based on beauty and freedom and care — can still be willed into existence if we’re willing to try.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

It might feel easier than ever to judge yourself harshly for not doing more, for not being braver. You may feel like your words or your actions are never quite equal to the times that you’re living in. This week, try to stop blaming yourself for being only human. Try to notice how much you’re growing. With every obstacle you move past, with every horror you survive, you become braver than you were the day before. With each day you keep living, you can become wilder, more beautifully unruly, more free.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

There are so many ways to imagine a future. You can envision gleaming utopias and beautiful new cities, but you can also foresee snarling scenes of wreckage, the end of everything. This week, make sure not to get so distracted by some lofty imagined future that you forget to look around you. There are futures being built on the ground right now. This is a week for paying attention to the real people, all around you, who are laying the groundwork for a better world. And, more importantly, it’s a week for joining them.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

This is a week to think about generosity, both how you can practice it and how you can receive it. It’s worth reflecting on what, specifically, you have to offer — your money, your resources, your time — but you should think beyond that, too. This is a week to meditate on the question of how you want to live in relation to other people: how you want to struggle alongside them, how you want to share the world. It’s a week to hold onto the knowledge that our lives here on earth are nothing without each other, and using that knowledge as you decide how you want to live.
