Tonight, the sun enters generous Sagittarius, and on Wednesday, communication planet Mercury joins it there. After the focused intensity of Scorpio season, Sagittarius season offers the chance to unclench your muscles, take beautifully idealistic risks, and give the people around you the benefit of the doubt again. Sagittarius knows the world is full of wonders. This season offers you some faith — and maybe even some concrete evidence — that things will be okay.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

In spite of what others might sometimes try to tell you, your anger is one of the best things about you, burning hot and bright and pure. It gives you a clarity of purpose, the power to see through all manner of lies, and the ability to create entire new worlds using only your own strength of will. This week, don’t suppress your anger — just don’t forget about your sweetness either. You can move through life powered by rage, but at the end of the day, you’re allowed to give in to the pure, soft sweetness of being alive.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

There are people who get so wrapped up in their ideas about the universe — in their fantasies and opinions and projections — that they forget how to see what’s actually around them. Not you, though. You rarely lose sight of the physical plane and rarely prioritize theory above the sights, sounds, and textures of real life. And still, every once in a while, it’s worth letting your imagination soar, becoming grand and glorious and wholly impractical. This week, don’t let your understanding of the world as it is prevent you from dreaming big.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

Most of the time, you’re comfortable with the knowledge that some of your projects will fail, some of your journeys will lead to dead ends, and some of your words will come out wrong. But lately, this has become harder to accept. The stakes have felt higher than ever, like there’s no time to wander and explore, like your first guess must always be the right one. This week, at last, you can recover confidence in your occasionally meandering process. Mistakes mean you’re in motion; they mean you’re trying and you’re on a path that will, however indirectly, lead somewhere wonderful.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

Much of the time, you’re perfectly happy to keep your ideas to yourself — not because you’re afraid of sharing but because the pleasures of your own mind, your own company, are so great. This week, however, there may be just as much joy, if not more, in letting others join you. Right now, people can surprise you with their insight, their generosity of spirit, and the new lines of thinking they help you to open up. If you give them a chance to really know you, they’ll prove able to meet you on your level after all.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

You’re skilled at observing what people notice, at watching where attention flows and pools in a room. You know how to draw focus and how to avoid it, how to make sure others see you exactly the way you want to be seen. But this week, strange as it seems, is a time for letting your tightly controlled narrative loosen. Let people see you at your messiest, at your strangest, at your least put together. Trust that the people you love will love you back even when you’re too tired to perform. They will.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

To your own great surprise, you might soon find yourself with a new and unshakable understanding that you are, despite your suspicions, worthy of good things: happiness, freedom, a healthy planet, kindness, peace, and a warm place to sleep. After so much time spent arguing with the world — and yourself — that you deserve to be here, this week, you might actually find you believe it. Though you still have work to do, you have nothing to prove, and your job right now is to remember that.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

Intellectually, you know that you don’t have to be perfect, that you can’t be perfect. Emotionally, though, there’s always some part of you striving to have exactly the right opinions, to express yourself always with total clarity, to make only good choices, to carry out every plan without a hitch. This week, you have a chance to release your desire for perfection in favor of messy, exciting possibilities. Being bold can be more interesting, more generative, and more beautiful than getting things exactly right every time. So try right now to prioritize bravery.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

Often without even consciously meaning to, you try to quash any feeling of optimism the moment it arises. It’s a habit so ingrained you hardly even notice you’re doing it, so this week, try to be intentional about countering that impulse. Try to purposefully invite hope into your heart no matter how useless or foolish it feels at first. Right now, the goal isn’t to accurately diagnose how bad everything is — it’s to expand what you believe is possible. Before you can work toward a better future, you have to let yourself believe one might exist.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

After a long season of hiding your emotions, of trying to be unobtrusive, of shrinking yourself down as small as you can be, the universe finally gives you the chance to expand again. Make it a priority right now to move and wander and dream. It has been hard to remember this lately, but you’re here to do more than survive, more than just endure each day. Your ambitions are coming back to life — let them. Anything can happen next. Life has felt dull, maybe, pinched and empty, but it won’t be like that forever. It’s changing already.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

People are always advising you to focus on the process and not the results. But it’s hard to take that seriously when you know deep down outcomes do matter. They determine how others treat you and what kind of life you’re able to live. You don’t work as hard as you do just for the sake of it. You’re trying to build something real. But even so, when you’re goal-oriented all the time, you lose out on the pleasures of open-ended exploration. This week, you might be surprised how refreshing a little aimlessness can turn out to be.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

One of your great gifts is your willingness to be difficult — to rebel against unearned authority, to challenge popular wisdom, to interrogate even your own happiness. Not everyone is so careful about tending to their integrity, but you are. The trouble is this often makes you harder on yourself than you need to be. It also makes you suspicious of everything that offers happiness or comfort or a tiny bit of hope. This week, if optimism tries to enter your heart, let it. It won’t turn you soft or gullible, and it might ease your way forward.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

You’ve spent so much of your life laboring to establish yourself, to become wiser and stronger and better at the work you do. But at a certain point, you begin to notice that the excitement has gone out of your activities. You might find yourself missing the freewheeling joy you used to feel back before you knew what you were doing, when everything was an adventure and nobody had any expectations of you. This week, try to find opportunities to be a seeker, to be a learner and not an expert. You can reconnect with the thrill of the unknown.
