Wednesday brings the first of this year’s three Saturn-Uranus squares: These are rare and major transits that signal a conflict between the world’s existing structures, and its urgent need for change. This is a time that can feel chaotic and challenging, but it can also be a time for wild, unpredictable new possibilities to be created. Then, early Thursday morning, the sun moves from cerebral Aquarius into dreamy, intuitive Pisces, heralding a season of deep feeling and renewed compassion. Finally on Saturday, Mercury retrograde ends, and your thoughts can move back into alignment; your words can regain their clarity and strength.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

Though hindsight can be a gift, sometimes it just feels like a burden. It’s painful to think about all the mistakes you made while you were still growing up, painful to think of all the choices you wish you’d made differently. This week, though, it’s possible to look at your past with a little more softness. The world didn’t need you to be perfect; it only needed you to try. And all the experiences you’ve had and all the choices you’ve made have led you here, where — even if it doesn’t feel like it — you’re stronger and wiser and more ready than you’ve ever been.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

This is a week for making room for real curiosity in your life — a week for welcoming curiosity from others, and for cultivating it in yourself, too. Everyone, including you, deserves the chance to ask questions. Everyone, including you, deserves the chance to wander and learn and dream, to do more than just work toward prearranged outcomes. It can feel like a tremendous inconvenience when the world unfolds unpredictably, but this week, try to see it as a chance to be surprised, a chance to learn about the world’s endless capacity for courage and beauty and love.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes, there’s just too much to feel. There are so many emotions, dark ones and sweet ones, all asking to be felt and processed at once. It’s too much for any one person to make sense of. The problem is that, in spite of the impossibility, there are people who want you to weave a coherent narrative of it all, people who will ask you to narrow yourself into just one story, one single type of person. This week, just try to remember for yourself: You’re a human, not a mascot, not a character. Your feelings can be weird and tangled. They’re yours.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might need a little bit of optimism in order to keep going. You might need a little bit of unearned hope in order to stay afloat. This isn’t foolish or naive, though you might wonder if it is. Everyone needs something to believe in, some plausible future worth fighting for; being cynical won’t make you stronger, sharper, more correct. This week, let yourself hold onto whatever hope you need. Doing so won’t make you complacent; instead, it can bring you back to the world, and back to yourself.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

Patience can feel practically impossible this week: There are so many urgent requirements, so many emergencies that need your attention. But this is a week for doing your best to remain calm. It’s a week for doing your best to cultivate groundedness, even when the world seems to be exploding all around you. Remember that you’re only one person, no more and no less. The way to mend the world isn’t to work without stopping, to fight without rest, but to be one among many, each doing what they can.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

VirgoWeekly Horoscope

Your inner world is so full and rich that it’s easy to look there for the answer to all your questions, for the solution to all your problems. But there are so many things that just aren’t your fault, and so many problems that aren’t yours to bear alone. This week, there’s joy on the way, and you don’t have to purify yourself or become perfect before you can touch it. This is a week for reaching out to other people, for building power alongside each other, for trying your best and making mistakes — not in sorrowful isolation, but joyfully, together.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

In times of isolation and times of scarcity, it becomes easy to blame whoever is closest to you, to find fault with the ones you love most. This week, even the people you care about can grate on you; it’s hard not to wish everyone acted better, or at least differently. It can be easy to get drawn into petty frustrations, easy to get drawn into conflicts you don’t even want, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Instead, try to remember who your real opponents are, and to save your frustration for them — and your generosity for those you love.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

You’re good at planning in advance; you know how to think three moves ahead so you don’t get caught off balance. This week, though, everything’s too unpredictable for you to maintain that kind of control. If you hold too tight to your expectations, you’ll end up feeling stuck. You don’t have to be right about everything. It isn’t certainty but curiosity that will open doors, that’ll show you the future, that’ll keep you safe.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

Normally, you’re so skilled at adapting, so good in a crisis, so willing to take life as it comes. Normally, there’s no change or surprise you’re not ready to handle. But after a while, a lack of control over one’s life can start to wear, even on you. This week, though, you’ll catch a glimpse of your old, eager strength again. This week, the world might remind you how good, how bright, how wild you can be. Eventually, you’ll get back the control you’ve been missing. But even now, in the middle of things, your best energy hasn’t left you after all.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

This week, it can feel difficult, almost impossible, to take action. You might feel blocked at every turn — by the people around you, or by your own sense of caution, or by the real, insurmountable barriers in your life. What matters most, right now, is that you not give in to hopelessness. If you can’t move, you can still dream. If you can’t see the future, you can still believe in it. This week, allowing yourself to believe in beautiful impossibilities, futures whose blueprints haven’t yet been drawn up, can be the best way of allowing yourself to go on living.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

Connection with others can be such a frustrating thing. People talk about community like it’s so lovely and simple, an uncomplicatedly good thing, but in reality, it can be maddening to share the world with so many others. But at the same time, nothing truly worthwhile can be achieved all on your own. This week, other people might surprise you, might frustrate you, might make you long for a little freedom. Just don’t forget that they can also offer the love and support you still need. They can make the world beautiful, sweet, worth living in after all.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

You’ve had the sense, lately, that you’ve forgotten how to interact with people normally. Conversations that would once have been simple now feel strange or off-kilter, imbued with a startling weight. But this week, try not to worry about it too much. It isn’t your job to work toward normalcy, or to appear plain and uncomplicated. The truth is that nothing is normal right now; everything’s changed. And there’s sorrow in this, but there’s possibility, too. You don’t have to be normal. You can be noisy or cautious or secretly strange. You can be however you need to be.
