Madame Clairevoyant: Horoscopes for the Week of May 29

It’s Gemini season. Illustration: Sunny Wu

The moon moves through Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio this week, building to a full moon in optimistic Sagittarius on Saturday night. For a while now, you’ve been on the edge of a breakthrough about your needs or purpose in life, and this moon is likely to bring the clarity you’ve sought. If you’ve been hungry for change and adventure but unsure where to start, let this moon show you the path. It will reignite your restlessness but also your sense of hope. There’s always risk involved in pursuing your desires, but it’ll seem worth it to take a chance again.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

Much of the time, you end up being the one to reach out, to initiate plans everyone’s excited about. Mostly, it works out well. When you’re full of vitality, why shouldn’t you take the lead? But it gets tiring when this role always falls to you. You’d like it if someone else could come up with plans for once. This week, if you take your foot off the gas for a moment, you might be surprised. Other people will step up. Your friends will be the ones to invite you along for the fun.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

Lately, you’ve been particularly sensitive to what people think of you, worried about how your words come across. It’s useful to mind how you’re perceived, but at a certain point it can make you so scared to be misunderstood that you don’t say anything at all. And while you are responsible for how you treat others, you can’t control the way they react. So this week, try not to dwell. A whole new world will open up once you stop believing it’s your duty to be liked.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

Lately it seems like everyone wants you to suppress your natural exuberance, or at least hide it. Though they may appreciate your humor and your warmth, you can’t help but feel like they’d all prefer it if you were more sensible and practical, even to the point of being boring. This week, remember that your life and choices are yours. Your friends’ preferences are their own — they don’t have to dictate your behavior. If you want to be a bit wild, to make a risky choice and heed the call to adventure, don’t let anyone stop you.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

This week, try to stop agonizing over your long-term goals. The big picture is important, of course, but it’s equally important not to neglect yourself, to tend to the life you’re living here and now. This week, orient yourself toward the things and people that make you feel happiest, most alive. Spend time working on a project or activity that genuinely satisfies you, that lights your brain up. You don’t have to know where it will all lead, or how it’ll benefit you in the future. You might even find that by focusing on the present, the path forward becomes clear.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

You hold people to high standards — yourself included. It’s one of your best qualities. While others might be willing to settle or dole out insincere praise, that isn’t your way. You’re not one to pretend the mediocre is amazing to spare someone’s feelings, nor to pretend to be satisfied if you’re not. At the same time, once in a while, it’s worth checking in with yourself. Are you asking too much? This week, don’t hold your friends’ inconsistencies against them, or your own imperfections against yourself. Don’t demand the impossible — rather ask that people do the best they can.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

This week, pay attention to the way people make you feel. Who in your life reaffirms that you’re interesting and funny and beautiful? Who makes you start to shrink, hide, doubt yourself? It’s easy to discount your own reactions — you tell yourself that you’re imagining things or that you don’t deserve to be around people who bring out the best in you. But you do. And while you can’t avoid every weird or unpleasant interaction, you can focus energy on the sweet ones. Don’t worry so much about the rest. You don’t have to like everyone.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

You’re adept at looking at your life critically, at staying clearheaded and analytical in even the most stressful or thrilling situations. You can be slow to reach decisions, because you care about getting it right. This week, though, resist the impulse to intellectualize everything. You don’t have to be clever all the time, or hold yourself at a remove from your feelings. There’s no question that you’re smart. Now, give yourself a chance to be soft too, to be silly, to make choices that might not be the most rational but that are, deep down, the ones you want.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

You do your best to keep it hidden, but there’s a part of you that’s insatiably ambitious. This part of you yearns to be recognized for being groundbreaking, brilliant, the very best at what you do, and believes that anything less is a failure. But it’s easy to wear yourself out, physically and emotionally, by constantly pushing yourself to be more — more interesting, more creative, more powerful. This week, give yourself a break. It’s important so you don’t burn out. Act like there’s nothing you need to win, like there’s no competition you need to beat.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

You’re going to want to take on the entire world this week — to say “yes” to every project that comes your way, to accept every invitation, to help everyone who asks. Just remember it’s not possible to do it all. Your resources are limited, and so are the hours in the day. Even the best opportunities can arrive at the wrong moment. Occasionally, you’re simply going to be the wrong person for the job. Expect there to be things that you’ll have to say “no” to: It’s not a problem or weakness but simply a fact of life.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

You’re realistic about your abilities, careful never to underestimate yourself, but not to get overconfident, either. You’re comfortable playing the long game, slow and steady. This week, however, some audacity might do you good. Say yes to an opportunity you aren’t sure you’re ready for, or talk to the crush you’re convinced is “out of your league.” Set out on a journey without an itinerary or a map. You might stumble, but you’re just as likely to grow by surprising leaps and bounds. Don’t hold yourself back.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

Like everyone, you deserve space to wander and explore and mess up. You may need to land on a few wrong answers before you can figure out the right one. Sometimes, it’s only by messing up first that you can finally make a big breakthrough. You understand this, but you also know that in real life, it’s rarely that easy. The stakes are high. This week, you might not be able to quell your fear, but you can refuse to let it hold you back. Try new things, experiment, change your mind. It won’t kill you.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

Most of the time, being vague on your goals and intentions results in disappointment. If you don’t have a clear sense of where you want to go, it’s hard to chart a course forward. If you don’t tell anyone what you’re looking for, then no one can help you find it. This week, though, flexibility is an asset, so don’t listen to anyone who tells you that you need fixed plans. When you aren’t laser-focused on one particular outcome you’re more likely to accept unexpected invitations and surprising gifts that come your way.
