This week begins with a full moon in kind and lovely Libra on Sunday. This may help illuminate the feelings and desires that you’ve been ignoring because they’re too painful, or too tiring, or just buried too deep. Under the light of this moon, it can be possible to deal with old feelings in a way that doesn’t defeat you, but that makes you feel purposeful and brave. Under the light of this moon, it can feel beautiful and good just to be a person — not some polished, finished product, but someone who’s alive and in motion and real.
Aries Weekly Horoscope
When people talk to you about “healing,” it often sounds like something mild and soft, like something with no edge to it, something necessarily serious. But just like the springtime, healing isn’t all sweetness and flowers — it’s also mud and storms and the giddy joy of being alive on a living earth. This week holds the potential for unexpected healing, not in the bland way but in your own way. This week, it’s possible to really believe that good things can still happen. This week, under grey skies and blue ones, the world is coming back to life, and so are you.
Taurus Weekly Horoscope
In a world of radically changed and diminished possibilities, it can feel unsafe and unwise to want too much. When the future feels so uncertain, it can feel foolish to cultivate grand desires. This week, though, you might find it impossible to ignore your most ambitious dreams. So let them be wild and surprising and impractical. Right now, it’s the big, glittering, impossible dreams that will give you the energy you need.
Gemini Weekly Horoscope
This is a week to pay careful attention to the ways you’ve taken on other people’s feelings as your own, the ways you’ve let others tell you who you are and what your life should mean. It’s normal, of course, to shift and shape yourself to fit the world you live in, and it’s normal to adjust to the people and places you encounter. This week, though, is a chance to recalibrate — to make sure that you aren’t denying yourself in the service of other people’s expectations. This week is a chance to recommit to living a life that’s your own.
Cancer Weekly Horoscope
If you need it, this can be one of those weeks where nobody is able to boss you around, where nobody can disrespect you, where nobody can make you feel small. No one can tell you you’re undeserving, because you already know you deserve everything. No one can tell you your feelings don’t count, because you already know that they do. It can be dangerous, of course, to live a whole life this way, but that’s no reason to deny yourself some wild confidence every once in a while. This week, let your wild confidence lift you, let it guide you, let it make everything good in life seem possible, reasonable, within reach again.
Leo Weekly Horoscope
This week, you might need a reminder that you aren’t trapped. You don’t have to continue acting in the same ways you always have, nor do you have to keep wanting the same things you’ve always wanted, or believing in the same things you’ve always believed. Just because you have a strong and well-defined sense of self, that doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to change. Your selfhood isn’t dependent on perfect continuity. And if you need some movement, some fresh air, you can have it this week.
Virgo Weekly Horoscope
It may seem like it’s easier than ever to see the rottenness in other people: the selfishness, the cruelty, the senseless refusal to act in ways that are right. In circumstances like the present ones, it’s easy to feel like there’s no way to ever make the world better. This week, you can stave off despair by seeking the beauty and goodness that still exists in those around you. This is a week for seeking out the people who give you a reason to hope after all. There’s courage and curiosity and joy still out there, in spite of it all.
Libra Weekly Horoscope
You often feel like you need to seek constant validation and affirmation from others. But this week, do your best not to ask for any kind of permission. Don’t wait for anyone else to tell you that you’re allowed to be contradictory and human, that you’re allowed to live as you see fit. This is a week to honor yourself by making plans and taking risks and expressing serious feelings. It’s a week to honor yourself by doing what you know you need to — whether or not you can get anyone else’s approval.
Scorpio Weekly Horoscope
In order to survive this world, it sometimes becomes necessary to deny certain parts of yourself — to hide away your most fragile feelings, or to blunt the sharpest edges of your anger, or to ignore your desire for love. This week, though, it might not be so easy to keep your hidden self hidden anymore. Your feelings might get unruly, and that might not be such a bad thing. This is a chance to reconnect with forgotten parts of yourself, a chance to reconnect with forgotten sources of power, of meaning, of joy.
Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope
This week, it’s possible to move on from the emotions that have nothing left to offer you. It’s possible to move on from worn and tired internal landscapes into strange new terrain. This isn’t necessarily about moving from bad feelings into good ones; rather, it’s about moving from flatness into richness, from torpor into possibility. Sometimes, new experiences are all it takes to make the world seem good again. Sometimes, new feelings — even if they’re complicated — are all it takes to surprise you back into joy. You don’t need a perfect world right now. You just need a little movement, a little change, and this week can offer that.
Capricorn Weekly Horoscope
This is a week to give yourself the joy of action. It’s a week to give yourself the chance to move, to do, to create. This sounds so simple, but sometimes, thinking and planning get in the way of action. It’s possible to be so thoughtful and so careful that you consign yourself to inertia. So this week, do your best not to get stuck inside your head. There’s safety in planning, and vulnerability in spontaneity, but this week, that vulnerability can be worth it.
Aquarius Weekly Horoscope
Living in this world means that you’ll sometimes experience deprivation and loss. It’s impossible to avoid this fact. This week, you must be careful not to impose extra deprivations on yourself for no reason. It’s important not to make yourself sadder and smaller than you have to be. The world is already limiting you enough; your job isn’t to create more limits, but to live as strangely and beautifully and well as you can within those that exist.
Pisces Weekly Horoscope
This is a week to find outlets for your creative impulses. But before you can do that, you have to recognize what you’re feeling as a creative impulse. So many people try to cordon off creativity, to make it seem like something special and elite, something that most people can’t access. In truth, you don’t have to prove your qualifications — not to anyone else, and not to yourself, either. If you feel a desire to express yourself, or to make the world more beautiful, that’s enough.
