On Monday morning, love planet Venus enters proud, dramatic, bighearted Leo. Of all the signs in the zodiac, this is the one that most thrives on attention and wilts without it. There are times when playing it cool is best, but not these next four months. Hiding your feelings and playing hard to get will likely backfire, leaving you lonely. If you’re enthusiastic about someone, be it a friend or a crush, show them.
Aries Weekly Horoscope
It’s frustrating to find yourself out of sync with the people close to you. You get lonely when your friend is in a season of heartache while you’re in one of bliss, or when you’re ready to take a big leap of faith while your crush wants to take it slow. This happens on occasion not because you’re inherently incompatible, but because everyone moves at their own pace. This week, your challenge is to let it be. Don’t pressure others to match your energy nor force yourself to match theirs. You don’t need to be totally aligned at every moment. You’ll come back together in time.
Taurus Weekly Horoscope
You’ve been stuck in the same place for what feels like forever, and while routines can be stabilizing, the tedium eventually starts to wear on you. This week, what you really need is to get moving again, however you can. Don’t worry about what you think you’re “supposed” to be doing right now. Don’t even worry about figuring out the best, most practical next step. This isn’t a time for perfectionism. If a silly or impulsive choice is what it takes to get you moving again, then that’s the one to make.
Gemini Weekly Horoscope
Getting older can be terrifying. Good as you are at adapting, you do experience moments of fear. You worry that you’ve already had your biggest adventures, that your opportunities for transformation are behind you. But this week, the universe will remind you that this is a feeling, not a fact. Some days will be difficult and boring — that’s inevitable and won’t ever change — but they’ll also continue to surprise you, to take weird and exciting turns, to be fun.
Cancer Weekly Horoscope
You’re loved. People in your life love you and show you that they do. But no matter how effusive they are, you can’t shake the worry that what they love is the mask you wear in public. That they don’t care for — or even know — the genuine you at all. This week, if you want to find out, it’s up to you to be honest. If you want to be seen, you have to stop holding everyone at arms’ length. No matter how vulnerable you feel, opening up will let you trust it’s real.
Leo Weekly Horoscope
You recognize that the spotlight can’t always stay trained on you. Sometimes, you have to step back so that others can have their moment. That doesn’t mean it’s easy. The truth is, you’re happiest in a starring role, and when you make yourself small, it’s easy to grow resentful. This week, don’t suppress your exuberance. Be mindful of the people around you, but give yourself a chance to shine, too.
Virgo Weekly Horoscope
You pride yourself on being a good teammate. It’s important to you to meet your deadlines, to be communicative, and do solid work. The world would be a better place if more people were as conscientious as you. Just be careful that you aren’t selling yourself short. You have more to offer than mere competence. This week, remember that you’re allowed to dream big, and that sometimes the only way to get what you need is to ask.
Libra Weekly Horoscope
You’re acutely aware of the fact that you’re not the only person in the world. Not only do you know it, you act accordingly. And it’s good to be generous! You know you’re no better or more deserving of happiness than anyone else. It’s equally important to acknowledge that you’re no less deserving than anyone else, either. It sounds obvious, but it’s surprisingly easy to forget (for you, at least). This week, don’t convince yourself it’s selfishness or arrogance. Make a point of treating yourself like you matter.
Scorpio Weekly Horoscope
When you’re working toward a goal (and you always are), you don’t like to make a fuss about it. Others announce their ambitions to the world, but you prefer not to invite that kind of attention. You don’t like to be seen as trying. It leaves you vulnerable, the risk of embarrassment too great. You’d rather do the work quietly, in private, where nobody can see if you fail. This week, though, you’d do well to communicate more. Think out loud. Get an outside opinion. Share your process, not just the outcome. People want to help you along your way, and they will if you let them.
Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope
Adapting to new situations probably comes naturally to you. You’re not rigid in your thinking; you’re willing to engage with people on their terms, to adjust your behavior when necessary. Sometimes, this feels like a superpower — you can fit in virtually anywhere — but consider that it can also cause you to shrink yourself, to hide. See what happens, this week, if you’re a bit less accommodating, and a bit more upfront about what you want. The people who love you want to engage with you on your own terms, too: Give them a chance to prove it.
Capricorn Weekly Horoscope
When you’re feeling pessimistic, it can be hard for you to shake it off. You’re smart and observant, and you’ve seen too much of this world to believe that things will just “work out.” Now, though, the universe will give you a gift: It will reassure you that you’re not as all-knowing as you think. No matter how wise you are, or how many experiences you’ve had, you’ll never see into the future. People might surprise you with their kindness and courage. This week might turn out beautifully, in ways you can’t predict.
Aquarius Weekly Horoscope
Lately, you feel trapped in a life that no longer fits. Your ambitions are breathtaking, but you’re too busy — with your job, with your home and family and obligations — to chase after them. But it’s easier to get unstuck than you think. You don’t need to make sweeping changes (though you can, if that’s what you need). This week, you’ll probably find that it’s enough to make small ones. Just a little bit of courage is enough to rewrite your life.
Pisces Weekly Horoscope
Sometimes, you feel like everyone but you gets to experience romances and stirring dramas, and your role is limited to supporting them while they do. Your good judgment allows you to give your friends good advice, and your kindness means you’re happy to do it. You just wish that once in a while, you got to be the star, the focal point, the one whose wild experiences receive all the attention. This week, don’t wait around for others to start treating you like the main character. Take matters into your own hands. Get out there and find the adventures you’ve yearned for.
