At the very start of the week — early in the morning on Sunday the 27th — Venus enters dramatic and confident Leo. Venus is best known as the planet of romance, but it rules over love of all kinds. And while it’s in Leo, you may find yourself gravitating toward love that’s not subtle or self-effacing, but that is instead loud, magnificent, brightly colored. Venus in Leo offers the confidence you need not only to feel big feelings but to express them too. During this time, the more generous you are with your attention, admiration, and praise, the more your relationships will bloom and flourish.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

Looking around yourself, you can start to imagine that the only way to really succeed is to become a different person entirely — as though the world was simply built according to dimensions that will never accommodate you. As much as you know that this isn’t actually true, that doesn’t mean you feel it any less. This week, though, your efforts won’t be so difficult, your passions not so mismatched to the landscape around you. You’ll be given some reassurance that the world needs you: not some altered or optimized version of you, but the unique, wonderful person who actually exists.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

So much of the time, you experience your personal luxuries privately. There’s so much joy to be had in the small, sensory experiences that make up a life — the clear morning air, the taste of a peach — and you don’t usually feel the need to put on a whole show about it. You know what you like and you know who you are, and you don’t need anyone else to validate that. But sometimes — like this week — other people’s acknowledgement can feel surprisingly good. Sharing experiences and being seen make this challenging world more bearable. So if you find yourself uncharacteristically seeking out attention, don’t be alarmed or ashamed. Lean into it.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

When you’re in motion, it often hardly matters what direction you’re moving in: there’s a thrill in being able to move at all. And there’s so much joy in learning and growing and changing your mind, in knowing you haven’t yet exhausted the world’s capacity to teach and surprise you. But this week, consider the possibility that you don’t always have to try so hard, to do so very much. If your brilliant mind starts to tire, take it as a sign that it’s time to rest, to stop spinning, to watch and wait as wonders emerge slowly, on their own, all around you.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

Even when things are going well and you’re happy and at home in your life, it’s still hard not to also feel lonely, neglected, haunted by the sense that you haven’t quite been given your due. You have a spark, a special magic that no one has to offer; in time, recognition will come. But this week, no more waiting around, hoping that the attention you deserve might appear. Your job is to keep moving, to keep trying, to keep believing that what you’re doing matters: because even if no one else has told you lately, it does.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

There’s always someone ready to convince you that it’s noble to deprive yourself of all pleasures, to make your life smaller, to trim back all exuberance, what they see as extraneous joy. So many people would make you believe that your duty is to minimize your desires and pare down your passions, to accept a lesser, second-rate life. But this week, don’t believe any of that. You can let your wants and feelings grow big and unwieldy, you can reach for more sweetness, more music, more happiness. This is a time for filling your heart up.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

No matter how highly you rate wisdom and clarity, it gets exhausting to keep receiving big lessons and having major revelations. Regardless of how worthwhile the work ultimately is, eventually, you still need a break. So this week, focus on the kind of learning that feels enjoyable, rewarding, even sweet. There’s so much worth knowing about the places you move through every day. Listening to the stories people have to share can bring you into closer connection with them and with the world around you. Sometimes your sharp and curious mind can feel like a burden, but now you can reconnect with the joy of it.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

This week, it’s much better to speak than to suppress the feelings you fear no one else will understand. Give voice to your dissenting ideas — no use wishing you were the same as everyone else. Though it often feels that way, disagreements don’t always need to be avoided. They can be necessary, generative, a path toward badly-needed change. And sometimes vocally disagreeing with others is just a way to remind yourself that you have your own feelings and your own ideas, and they’re worth standing up for.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes, it feels like other people just want so much from you. No matter how much you love them or how much you give, it’s impossible to meet all their needs. And when your own resources become depleted, it’s easy to start feeling guilty for not having more love to offer, or for being unwilling to offer the last stores of love you do have. This week, if you’re feeling drained, give yourself permission to step away: away from the guilt, away from demands you can’t meet. You deserve rest. You deserve time — even if it’s only a few minutes — when you have nobody to please but yourself.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

Normally, you’re able to see the very best in people — not just the people you love, but also in yourself. So it’s jarring when others don’t see what you do. It’s frustrating when no one seems to recognize your potential; it can make you begin to question yourself. And while sometimes it’s useful to think twice, to bring your wild confidence back down to earth, this week, it’s better to love yourself all the more fiercely. You can believe in yourself in the face of setbacks and uncertainty, and will be rewarded for refusing to give up.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

When it comes to your boundaries, it can be difficult to strike the right balance between staying safe and isolating yourself entirely. It’s hard to protect yourself while still being open to intimacy and care, to protect your own time while still being generous with the ones you love. Sometimes, people will try to persuade you that it’s wrong to have boundaries at all, but of course this isn’t true, and this week, it’s possible to set them in ways that work for you. You don’t have to satisfy everyone, or act like you have no needs of your own. You can have boundaries, and you can have love, too.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

Looking into the abstract future, the possibilities can seem thrilling, beautiful, invigorating. But when change actually comes to you, it’s just as often scary, even painful. It’s one thing to imagine the wild unknown, another thing entirely to live in it. So if you find yourself feeling strange and anxious this week, try to remember that you are still in a time of transition. You don’t need to act with a certainty that you don’t actually feel. You’re navigating a world that keeps shifting beneath your feet, and you’re doing so with wisdom and grace.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

Even when your values are clear and unwavering and you’re free of doubts, it’s still difficult to know how to live in keeping with what you believe. There are always so many competing voices coming from so many different directions, offering conflicting advice. If you struggle to know what to do next, this week, just take the first promising opportunity that arises and go from there. You can’t see the future, and you don’t have to. You can only do one thing, which will lead to the next, which will lead to the next. Eventually, the clarity you’re yearning for will emerge.
