On Monday evening, communication planet Mercury enters dreamy Pisces. Your thinking might lose some of its crisp, analytical objectivity; your conversations with others might lose some of their pointed edginess. Your communication might feel less intellectual, but pure intellect isn’t what’s needed right now: The best results will happen when you let your thoughts be tempered by instinct, by intuition, by feeling.

Throughout this week, the sun also travels through the final degrees of Pisces, and on Saturday morning it enters bright, fiery Aries. The sun’s entry into Aries holds the sweet promise of springtime: This is an opportunity to start anew, to look ahead with boldness and pleasure, to believe in the magic of being alive.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

Lately, it’s been easy to feel like nothing is going how it should. The smallest tasks require so much energy; the tiniest mishaps can derail a whole day. You still know, intellectually, that you can be good and fun and interesting, but it’s been hard lately to feel it. There are too many layers of exhaustion and overload getting in the way. But this week promises that things won’t be this hard forever. This week will let you know — not just in your head, but in your body, too — that you’re still bright and wonderful, that this world is still for you.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

In order to move forward you first need to create a little space for yourself. Maybe your routines have constricted you too much, maybe other people’s expectations have become too heavy, maybe your own brain is just getting too crowded. But in one way or another, this is a week for creating the space you need. You can clean your kitchen, you can walk somewhere new, you can open the windows wide. The point is to make room for other ways of thinking and moving and being, for the kind of life you need.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

One way you process the world is by talking things through — by turning your strange experiences into insight, or analysis, or a good sharp story. This week, though, clarity might not come as immediately as you’d like. This doesn’t mean that your brain has stopped working, or that there’s no sense left in the world. It just means that some experiences take time before they can be expressed clearly. It just means that some feelings are so strange and so beautiful that they turn out — at least for now — to be irreducible to words.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

The choices that present themselves to you this week will be different than what you’d expected. You’ve spent so much time preparing and planning for the future, but now, you’ll find yourself faced with a surprising set of options. The important thing, right now, is to see what’s actually here: Not the paradise you wished for or the doom you feared, but a strange human world. And your challenge this week is to notice where there is possibility: different possibilities than the ones you expected, but possibilities all the same.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes, painful feelings are also a necessary source of energy; sometimes, burning anger can be the only thing that gives you the strength to get through the day. It’s hard to loosen your grip on feelings like these: They feel necessary, even as they consume you. This week, though, it’s possible to find new sources of energy. It’s possible to find support, or solidarity, or some amorphous kind of hope. You don’t have to let go of your fury, but you don’t have to stake your life on it, either.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

You’ve survived nightmares, you’ve survived horrors, you’ve survived countless flat, grey days. This should bring with it some sense of victory and joy, but sometimes your feelings are more complicated than that. Your emotions might not match the emotions other people expect of you; they might not even match the emotions you expected from yourself. There’s nothing wrong with this. It takes space and time to know how you really feel; this week, give yourself as much space as you can, as much time as you need.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

At a certain point, it becomes impossible to be stoic any longer. At a certain point, you can no longer cheerfully bear all that you’ve been asked to. You’ve been through hell, and you’re not out quite yet; all around you, you can see people are getting strange, edgy, and mean. This week, remember that there are other options, too. It’s possible, instead, to become soft. It’s possible to be forgiving and loving. It’s possible to live like the world’s just about to become wonderful.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

This week, the world is going to ask you to be soft. Even as you try to keep your guard up, even as you try to hide behind strong defenses, your secret tender heart is going to show through. This isn’t a terrible thing, though it can sometimes feel that way. Sometimes, letting down your defenses is the only way to learn anything. It’s important, this week, to let yourself remember that there’s some softness hidden everywhere — even in the wildest places, and even in the darkest places, and even in you.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes, everything just feels a little bit off. Sometimes, your mind just feels restless and itchy, full of unnameable longing. Sometimes, your life itself just feels too tight, like something you’ve nearly outgrown. It’s an annoying and inconvenient kind of feeling, but it isn’t going to last. It simply means that change is on its way. What feels unbearable at the moment won’t last forever. The world is moving, and spring is coming, and a better future is drawing near. All your yearning feels shapeless right now, but before long, it can coalesce into something real.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

This week, you might feel a persistent sense of urgency. You might feel an anxious fear that time is moving too quickly, that you’re running out of chances to do all that you need to. Sometimes, it’s possible to put this urgency to good use, to let it spur you to action. But this week, you’ll be better served by easing off for a bit. You deserve rest, you deserve hope, you deserve impractical springtime dreams. There’s so much sweetness in the world right now, and you deserve to let yourself feel some of it.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

When communication falters, it’s easy to imagine that it’s somehow all your fault — that you just haven’t spoken clearly enough or you haven’t developed your ideas fully enough. But sometimes, no matter how brilliantly or how beautifully you speak, there’s no way to clarify everything. There’s no way to prevent all misunderstanding. This week, you can forgive yourself, and other people, for communicating less than perfectly. TYou can give yourself permission to experience the world just as it is: a place of messiness, of goodness, of real and hopeful feeling.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

It might feel as though you’ve missed some crucial opportunity, as though you’ve waited too long, as though somewhere along the line you passed up a chance that will never come again. Really, though, there are no final make-or-break moments. There are no choices that everything is riding on. The decisions you make matter, of course, but nothing is ever wholly final, no choice that you can’t recover from. The possibilities available to you may not be infinite, but they’re wilder and grander than you can see right now.
