On Thursday, love planet Venus moves into dreamy Pisces. In your relationships, you might rediscover a kind of compassion that you thought you’d lost. You might regain a feeling of connection with the world and the people around you. It can be hard to treat others right in a world that treats almost no one right at all, but this week, you can remember softness, and you can reach for it. Then, on Friday night, a full moon in conscientious Virgo lights up the sky, offering you the chance to free yourself from some of the tangled-up rage and resentment that’s held you back and kept you isolated. This week, you can create the emotional space to reach out to others, to move forward together.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

It’s been hard, lately, to watch so many people who behaved with greed and malice face no consequences at all. But this week, even if it’s only on a very personal level, you’ll see some things finally shake out the way they should. Maybe long-hidden truths will finally be revealed, or maybe some moral debts, long ignored, will finally be called in. It won’t be enough to convince you that the world is fair, but it might be enough to convince you that it’s still worth trying.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

This week, the question still remains: How is it possible to keep going in a world like this? With all the destruction around you, all the unfairness, all the casual disregard for human life, how can you keep hoping and striving? This week won’t offer you any real conclusions, but it can offer you small boosts and moments of reprieve, little reminders that you aren’t alone after all. Reach out to those you love, and let them reach out to you. There are more people who care about you than you realize, so many people holding you up, even from afar.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

People keep telling you to be kind to yourself, to cut yourself some slack. And so much of the time, these encouragements only register as tired platitudes, cliches ring hollow, given the enormity of the times we’re living through. The thing is, though, that they’re true all the same. Survival is shockingly, gruelingly hard right now. Experiencing and witnessing this much suffering is more than anyone can be expected to bear. Don’t stop doing your best to help, to serve, to rise to the occasion. But give yourself some credit, too. Cut yourself a little slack.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might feel a powerful yearning for more control over your life. There are so many choices that have been taken away from you, so many futures that have been blocked off. For a while, it seemed like the key to survival was to shift and adapt, to bend yourself to fit into the world as it is. This week, though, you’re justified in refusing to sacrifice anything more. Don’t try to suppress your yearning. This week, give your longing and your fury permission to change your life.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

It’s hard, sometimes, to give voice to your own needs, your own hurt, your own howling, raging desire for better. You fight so hard on behalf of other people; you give and give and give, and it can feel like an unnatural reversal to ask for anything in return. But reciprocity isn’t magic: It takes communication, just like anything else. This week, don’t wait for someone to read your mind. Instead, try to be direct: Say what you feel, and ask for what you need. You’ll get the care you need, as long as you open the door to it first.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

This week can strengthen your will; it can give you the burst of fresh energy you need to keep going. That may sound like far too little — what you really need isn’t more strength, but a livable world. But the new world is coming, and this is a week for holding onto your hope while we build and fight and dream it into being. Even the worst dark place will offer, eventually, a crack of light. Even the longest night will break, eventually, into morning. This week, the world will give you what you need to stay strong until the morning comes again.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

It would be understandable, this week, if you looked around and decided that the world as we know it is wholly irredeemable. It would be understandable if you were tempted to give up hope. If the present feels too awful to bear, it can be helpful to look to the past or the future instead. There’s wisdom to be found in history; there’s hope to be found in the futures that don’t exist, but might someday. This isn’t a means of escapism, but a way to find the strength to keep going.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

This week, what had appeared to be certain might suddenly be cast into doubt. What had appeared to be finished business might be shown to be still in process. Part of this can feel personal, even frightening: The principles you felt so sure of might seem newly wobbly; the relationships you thought were stable might change shape. But there’s hope to be found in this, too. The very worst things about this world aren’t permanent. The very worst futures aren’t inevitable. Nothing has to be the way it is: There’s still time, it turns out, to change.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

This is a week for reclaiming your spirit of adventure; it’s a week for choosing a rule or two to break. Rule-breaking isn’t always a bad thing — there are some rules designed to protect no one, designed only to make the rich richer, and to make the rest of us less free. So this is a week to rebel with some intentionality and some thought, and with a sense of mischief, too. It can give you a sense of freedom, a sense of mastery over your time, and the reassurance that, even in strange, bad circumstances, your life still belongs to you.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

In good and stable times, the world’s unpredictability can feel like a challenge or a curse. But when things are as strange and as bad as they are now, unpredictability can offer, against all odds, some relief. The same trends won’t be in place forever; the same patterns won’t continue until the end of time. There’s room for surprise, and for wild, abrupt shifts, and for the people to rise up in spite of it all. There’s no way to know exactly what the future holds, and this week, you can find some comfort in that.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

It can feel, sometimes, like all your major growth has already happened, and you’re stuck with the tools you have. It can feel, sometimes, like there’s nothing to do but make the best of the skills and the knowledge and the coping mechanisms you’ve managed to develop so far. And maybe that feels like enough, but maybe you’re finding yourself yearning for something else. This week, the world might remind you that it isn’t too late to build new foundations, to set off in new directions, to learn theories and skills that feel utterly, beautifully new.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

This is a week to turn to the relationships in your life, and to pay attention to how they’ve grown and changed, how they’ve withered and bloomed. It’s been a strange time for friendships; it’s been hard to be as present as you’ve wanted to be, hard to give and receive love freely. This week, though, you can stop feeling so guilty. There are relationships in your life still worth protecting and tending; there are people you still care about, and who still care about you. Love is wild and resilient, and if you’ve forgotten that, this week can remind you.
