In the early hours of Friday morning, a full moon in thoughtful Virgo illuminates the sky. Under this moon, the many disparate pieces of your life can finally fall into place. Where you thought there was only chaos, you can instead, in this moment, see the order and elegance of the big picture. This is a good time to tend to any practical tasks you’ve been putting off. And if you’ve been working hard to put things right in your life over the past weeks and months — to mend relationships or fix past mistakes — then those efforts might finally bear fruit.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

Lately, nothing is as simple as you want it to be. You have questions too knotty to be answered with a yes or no, ambitions too sprawling and multifaceted for you to attack them head on. The complexity of everything around you (and the matching intricacy of your own inner world) can make you feel stuck, unable to discern a clear direction to move in. But this week, remember the things — emotions or relationships or basic values — that are simple. And if you let them guide you, you’ll find the clarity you need to keep going.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

When you’re dissatisfied with the choices available to you at any given time, it’s easy to imagine it’s because you made all the wrong moves in the past. You can start to believe the present frustrating state of your life is entirely your fault, that you should somehow have built a stronger foundation for yourself — or at least a different one. This week, don’t blame yourself for not having been able to see into the future. Our choices are often imperfect, but the important thing is you’re here now, and more doors remain open to you than you realize.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

You have a talent for relating to the people around you as they truly are — not projecting your own personality onto them or judging them against some rigid set of standards you’ve devised. But this week, it’s valuable to remember that just because you’ve found common ground with someone doesn’t mean you have to like them. No matter how generous in your thinking you strive to be or how fairly you treat people, you don’t have to feel warmly toward everyone you know. There’s something sacred about honoring your own dislikes and aversions. Listen to your instincts about people.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

There are some things you need to plan for and some it’s okay to figure out as you go. That said, it’s difficult sometimes to find the balance between rushing in unprepared and expecting total expertise with a detailed itinerary before you allow yourself to act on your ambitions. This week, consider what knowledge you’ll need before you can begin and what you can collect as you go. You don’t have to know everything, and it’s possible you’re already prepared to take the big leap, to start doing what you’ve been dreaming of.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

People don’t always notice or appreciate what a heavy emotional load you carry. They see the warmth and light you bring to the spaces you move through and assume that, because it looks natural, it must be easy. This week, even if nobody seems to recognize the effort required to keep everyone happy, it’s important you do for your own sake. Allow yourself a break. You don’t have to keep shining your light across the universe or dazzling people with your kindness or playing any role at all. For now, give yourself a moment to simply be.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes it can feel as though you’re always so busy fixing the small mistakes of your co-workers, friends, and family that you never get the chance to work toward grander, more interesting goals. When all your energy goes toward putting out everyone else’s fires, the worry is you’ll never have the chance to grow into your own powers, to do what you were really meant to. But this week, you’ll get a chance to be part of something bigger. And you’ll see you haven’t been wasting your time or your gifts. You’ve been growing, and shining, all along.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

It takes a surprising amount of courage to confess, even just to yourself, that you aren’t where you’d like to be. When you’re unhappy in a relationship, career, or city that you chose for yourself, it’s humbling — even painful — to admit that something you’ve worked hard for doesn’t feel like enough. This week, if you’re dissatisfied, it’s okay to say so. It’s not an expression of selfishness or fussiness or greed. Rather, it’s about believing in your own capacity for growth. You aren’t idly complaining: You’re identifying a problem and taking a hopeful first step toward change.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

It can be difficult to trust that the people in your life love you for the “right” reasons, for who you really are. You tend to worry that they’ve simply projected their own best qualities onto you or that they’re not paying enough attention. This week, consider the possibility that your loved ones are right about you after all and that the wonderful things they see in you are real. No matter how perceptive you are when it comes to others, you can be an unreliable judge of yourself. So if you can’t see yourself clearly or kindly, let the people you trust do it for you.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

Much of the time, you’re driven by a desire to learn and grow — to expand your knowledge, to collect more experiences. If you weren’t bound by the limits of the real world (work, bills, family obligations), you’d read every book, speak every language, and visit every continent. But this week, you might find it’s better not to be an expert on every subject. Instead, right now, you’ll find joy in approaching the world like a beginner as if it’s all brand new to you. With no preconceived notions and no expectations to live up to, there’s room for possibility, openness, and play.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

This week, you’ll do well to rely less on logic and more on feeling. This doesn’t mean you’re giving up on accuracy, honesty, or rigor. It’s only that sometimes people can’t fully express the truth of their experiences through facts and data, though that doesn’t make their experiences any less legitimate. Try to open your mind to what can only be expressed nonverbally, metaphorically, obliquely. Communication isn’t always straightforward, but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening. If you step away from what is “normal,” you’ll connect with those you love on a deeper level than before.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

Your challenge this week is to sit back and let things take as long as they take. This sounds so obvious it hardly needs saying, but lately, you find yourself desperately wishing you could speed time up. Everything — from your progress toward your goals to the arrival of warm spring days — is proceeding much more slowly than you’d like. But the solution isn’t to rush, to give in to your impatience. Just because it’s gradual, that doesn’t mean change isn’t happening. You don’t have to speed it up; you only have to keep going one day at a time.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

You’re able to adapt to almost any circumstance you find yourself in, to find what’s tolerable, even beautiful, in any situation. But that isn’t always the same as feeling you truly belong. And lately, it’s been hard not to wonder whether you fit in where you are. After all, the sense of being out of place that defines adolescence doesn’t vanish when you reach adulthood. Finding belonging is an ongoing quest, one that weaves in and out of your life forever. But this week, at least for now, you may finally find a place to settle: a community, an identity that fits.
