Madame Clairevoyant: Horoscopes for the Week of June 26

On Monday night, communication planet Mercury enters conscientious, analytical Virgo, where it will remain until early October. This period invites you to attend to the details of your life: to create a thorough plan for your work (and follow through on it), to deal with the small but necessary tasks you’ve been procrastinating on, to quit ignoring possible red flags in a new relationship, no matter how minor you want to believe they are. Then on Friday, a five-month Neptune retrograde begins. While the planet of mysticism and illusion moves backward through the zodiac, you might find it challenging to distinguish fantasy from fact or more painful to face hard truths. Nostalgia and wishful thinking can be comforting, but between now and December, take extra care to make decisions based in reality.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

You’ve had so many new experiences in recent months. You’ve experimented, met strangers with an open mind, taken some meaningful risks. It’s been thrilling to experience the world in fresh ways, to meet yourself as though for the first time. But at a certain point, it becomes necessary to slow down, to take it easy and process what you’ve learned. So this week, give yourself a chance to relax and enjoy your comfort zone. No one can go full-speed ahead all the time. Make sure you’re reflecting and recharging.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

Your steady persistence is one of your best qualities. You’re willing to push forward when the terrain is rough, and you’re brave enough not to back down when the odds are against you. Call it patience or call it stubbornness. It’s helped you solve countless problems in the past, but lately, it makes you feel like you’re just beating your head against a wall. You’re anxious that your goals are impossible to achieve and you’re foolish to try. This week, finally, the fog will lift. You’ll see your problems with clear eyes. You can find the solutions you need.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

Lately, you’ve struggled to make decisions small and big. It isn’t that you don’t trust yourself to choose wisely, or that you don’t have the information you need in order to. Rather, you know that in saying yes to one person or opportunity, you must say no to countless others, and the longer you put off your choosing, the longer the whole host of possibilities remains open to you. This week, be brave. Commit to a path. It will inevitably close off some avenues to you, but it’ll open others.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

It’s easy to imagine that the person you are today is the one you’ll be forever, that you’re as smart and interesting as you’ll ever be. You believe, maybe unconsciously, that if you aren’t yet ready for something — a new job, a big risk, a serious relationship — then you’ll probably never be. But in reality, your future self will be capable of more than you are now. You’re growing and changing and gathering experiences all the time, and it’s important that you don’t hold yourself back. Keep your brave, cool, fascinating future self in mind as you move through the world this week.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

You’re amazing at generating ideas and dreaming big. You understand, often better than those around you, that it’s important to not let practical considerations limit imagination. Especially in the early brainstorming stages of any project, the best strategy is to go wild, knowing that you’ll bear down and figure out how to realistically make it happen later. This week, though, might prove to be that time for more careful consideration. So give some serious thought not only to what you want but how you might go about getting it. This is a moment to come up with solutions. Make the most of it.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

There’s so much information coming at you that sifting through it feels impossible. The news moves so fast that you can hardly keep up with it; people share their opinions with you so loudly and frequently that you can barely find a moment to develop your own. So this week, protect your energy and attention so that you can think and dream. It isn’t your job to follow every news story in real time. You’re not responsible for keeping track of everybody else’s theories about the universe. For now, try to prioritize your own.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

Even when you feel passionately about a subject, you can be hesitant to express yourself too forcefully. Not because you don’t have faith in your intellect or opinions, but because you’re well aware how much you don’t know. You don’t want to box yourself in or steamroll anyone; you want to stay curious, with an open heart and mind. This week, though, be honest and firm about what you believe, despite knowing that it might not stay the same forever. Communicating openly will strengthen your relationships — and it’ll help you sort through your own thoughts too.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

It’s difficult for you to let go. When a relationship sours, you have to know what caused the breakdown before you walk away. When a plan doesn’t work out, you won’t stop digging until you figure out what exactly you did wrong. You’re not content to take life at face value; you need to know why it is the way it is. Sometimes, though, the truth isn’t that deep or complicated. In your endless drive to find answers, you can end up reading too much into other people’s words, seeing deeper meaning where none really exists. It isn’t easy, but this week, try to accept that some things just are.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

While some people get caught up in the particulars and lose sight of the bigger picture, you’re more likely to take the opposite approach. You’re willing to brush over small mistakes as long as the overall story feels right. This week, though, pay closer attention to the minutiae you’d prefer not to worry about. This isn’t solely about avoiding mistakes. If you let the seemingly boring details guide your focus, your thinking about the important questions will grow stronger and more informed. The small stuff is what makes up the big picture, so don’t overlook it.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

Sometimes, you get the impression that in order to win — or simply to have the life you want — others must lose, that you must fight with everyone else not just for professional success but for happiness and fulfillment, too. It’s understandable that you’d feel this way; our society discourages cooperation and care in favor of competition. But this week, especially, don’t get caught up in a zero-sum mind-set. The best way for you to succeed is to help others succeed too. Supporting your community or helping your friends reach their dreams will benefit you as well.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

You’re fiercely independent. You aren’t afraid to fly solo, and you pride yourself on your self-sufficiency. But even you can’t go it alone forever. When you feel disconnected from your friends and community for too long, it takes a toll. It leaves you feeling weird and isolated, out of sync with the universe. So this week, focus on strengthening your relationships. Make a point of getting out into your neighborhood, talking to other people, interacting with the world outside your own head. Just because you can endure isolation, that doesn’t mean you have to.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

Your desires are sometimes hazy and undefined, even to you. Your yearning is intense but lacks shape or form. You want so much, but when it comes to the particulars, you’re unsure. This dreamy wistfulness isn’t terrible, but at a certain point, it isn’t enough. You need to change your life in a material way; you need something you can hold on to. This week, push yourself to get specific. What kind of future do you dream about? What kind of people do you want in your life? You might finally find the clarity you’ve been missing.
