This is the last week of Aquarius season before the sun enters Pisces on Saturday afternoon, so take advantage of Aquarius’s originality and rebelliousness while you can. Once Pisces season begins, the mood will shift. Where Aquarius lives in the world of the intellect, Pisces is focused on emotion. Where Aquarius can be prickly, Pisces is more tender. It’s a dreamy and sensitive season, and a good time for making art, mending relationships, and granting and receiving forgiveness. You’ll better understand those you love, and you’ll have more compassion for yourself too.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

When people are rude or antagonistic toward you, your preferred strategy is to fight back, to meet their combativeness with your own. You aren’t afraid of confrontation (you aren’t really scared of anyone), so you see no point in holding back. You’d rather have it out, right then and there. This week, though, you’ll be better off if you can let some invitations to spar go unanswered. Even if your instinct is to rise to every challenge, this is an occasion for choosing your battles. Don’t wear yourself out with the petty stuff. Save your energy for when it counts.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

You know perfectly well that nothing is permanent. Problem is, usually this knowledge fills you not with peace but dread. You worry that at any moment, the life you’ve worked so hard to build could come apart at the seams, that the relationships you’ve put time and effort into could fall apart. But the tighter you try to hold onto what you have, the less energy you’ll have to move forward. This week, remember that while change is inevitable, you don’t have to passively wait for it to come. You could try driving it instead. If you’re in control, it might not be as scary.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

One of the best ways to be kind to yourself this week is to commit to doing a little bit less. This kind of advice often feels impossible — after all, you’re involved in so many activities and your work demands every bit of your focus and there are people who genuinely need your help. Even so, at least try to scale back. When all your time is scheduled and all your energy spoken for, it makes living less fun, especially for a curious person like you. Give yourself some breathing room.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

When you get familiar with your surroundings, with the people in your community and your routines, it’s easy to stop paying close attention. You assume that you already know what you need to, and that you can easily predict what comes next. Maybe that’s true, sometimes. But the universe is more surprising than that. Just because you don’t see all the fresh possibilities in front of you, that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Don’t let yourself be lulled into boredom. The world — and your life — is much more interesting than you think.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

Certain seasons in life are for forward motion, and others for staying put; some are for taking big emotional risks, and others for protecting yourself. Even someone as ambitious as you needs time to rest and retreat; those who thrive in the limelight need to hide from the busy world once in a while, too. This week, give yourself a break if that’s what would help you the most right now. It doesn’t mean you’re backing down or giving up. It won’t make people forget about you. Take all the time you need.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

Some people appear to float through life, content to enjoy themselves, but for you, that never feels like enough. Even in your most romantic or silly or extravagant moods, you still need to know you’re doing something of value for others. You want to help people, to create order out of chaos, to alleviate the pain that seems pervasive these days. But it’s possible that you also have a passion project you’ve kept hidden, some adventure or desire with no practical purpose. This week, give yourself over to your flights of fancy. It might end up being more useful than you think. And if it doesn’t, that’s okay too.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

You’re not someone to act recklessly or court danger for its own sake, but that doesn’t mean you’re scared of taking chances. You just want to know that you aren’t being foolish, that the risks you take are worth it. This week is a good time to reflect on what kind of future you want, and how much uncertainty you can withstand in order to get there. When you’re clear with yourself about what you’re willing to gamble (and, more important, what you stand to gain), it becomes easy, even exciting, to face life’s challenges head on.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

Lately, other people’s opinions of you have been taking up more space in your head than is helpful. Their ideas about what kind of person you are, what you’re capable of, and what choices you should be making have begun to affect the way you think about yourself. It’s tempting to dig in your heels and try to prove them wrong, but ultimately, that isn’t worth your energy as long as you know who you are. This week, don’t worry about changing other people’s minds. Focus on doing your own thing. It doesn’t matter what they think, as long as you’re good with it.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

Thanks to your brains and your confidence, you know that you can do anything you set your mind to. The future is wide open, and your path isn’t set: You could choose to make a major career pivot or move across the world and be fine. It comforts you to know how open-ended life is. This week, though, try to think in specifics. You can do whatever you want; so what, specifically, do you want? And are you brave enough to try to make it happen?

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes, without your realizing, friendships get pushed to the back burner. As much as you value them, there always seems to be something more urgent that demands your attention — a deadline, an annoying household task, a crisis at work. This week, though, the more you can make time for the people in your life, in ways as small as chatting on the phone for a few minutes or as large as planning a big friends’ trip, the more you’ll be rewarded. Your community will show up for you in surprising ways, and your load will be lighter.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

It seems as if other people are always trying to tell you how to behave, how to feel, what to want. Over time, you’ve learned that if you could fulfill all their expectations, you’d end up miserable all the same, with no space to stretch yourself and no opportunity to be who you truly are. You’ve had to fight hard to live on your own terms, and while that can be lonely, it’s also worthwhile. This week, though, make sure that all the fighting hasn’t made you too uncompromising. You can bend without betraying your values.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

Recently, you’ve noticed that a chapter of your life is coming to a close. Maybe a relationship has reached the end, maybe a big conflict has finally been resolved, maybe you’ve found some long-awaited closure. Take time this week to wrap things up — to have the tough conversation, to make the final decision, to sit with the emotions that have bubbled up. Before long, exciting new doors are going to open, so do what you can right now to tie up loose ends, to tend to your feelings, and to get ready.
