On Monday, a full moon in thoughtful Capricorn illuminates the patterns that continually play out in your relationships — including the one you have with yourself. The moon being in Capricorn often kicks up difficult feelings (ones you might prefer to avoid altogether), but this one being full, it asks you to reckon honestly with conflict, take responsibility for your role in it, and make a change. It can be scary to have candid discussions about how you feel, but if you’re willing to do the emotional work right now, your relationships will grow stronger.

Weekly Horoscope Aries

Aries Weekly Horoscope

You might find that you can’t move as fast as you want to this week. Whether your own doubts are holding you back or external forces are impeding your progress, you’re not getting as much done as you’d like. Your instinct might be to double down, to push even harder than before. But try, instead, to do the opposite: Embrace a more leisurely pace, accept that you can’t impose your timeline on the universe. What seems lazy or unproductive right now may prove to be an effective strategy in the end.

Weekly Horoscope Taurus

Taurus Weekly Horoscope

Some people say that hard work is its own reward. But after all of the effort you’ve been putting in lately — whether in a professional context, toward a relationship, or in service of personal growth — it’s understandable that you’d want more to show for it. You’re tired of feeling like you’re running in place. You’re hungry for results, recognition, a sense that all your labors are leading somewhere. This week, even if you don’t get exactly what you’ve been hoping for, you’ll at least see some progress. You can be assured that your stress hasn’t been for nothing.

Weekly Horoscope Gemini

Gemini Weekly Horoscope

You spend a lot of time and energy experimenting, adjusting your daily routines, testing out different ways of being. You don’t necessarily do it because you’re dissatisfied with your current situation. You do it because it’s rewarding. This week, though, give yourself an opportunity to rest, to stop dreaming about different paths you might enjoy more than the one you’re on and fully inhabit your life as it is. You’ve learned so much about the world, built strong relationships, nurtured your wild independent streak. Give yourself more credit, and stop wishing you were somewhere else.

Weekly Horoscope Cancer

Cancer Weekly Horoscope

You may find yourself meditating on the past this week — people you used to love, important moments that shaped you, all of the choices that, in hindsight, you wish you’d made differently. Friends might tell you to stop dwelling on what’s behind you, to quit ruminating over what you can’t change. But what they don’t understand is that this serves a purpose. You aren’t stuck in the past. You’re searching for meaning in it, trying to learn from your experiences. Our memories have a lot to teach us, and you’ll be wiser for letting them.

Weekly Horoscope Leo

Leo Weekly Horoscope

There are times when your energy is muted and you can’t fully express yourself, when it’s difficult to project the image you want others to see. Although you recognize that everyone has off-days and you can’t reasonably expect yourself to be the exception, in your heart, you still wish you could always shine your brightest. If you’re frustrated this week, remind yourself that life is cyclical. If you’re muddling through a difficult or confusing period right now, that means you’re learning and growing. Soon enough, you’ll make a breakthrough and feel like your vibrant self again.

Weekly Horoscope Virgo

Virgo Weekly Horoscope

Because you’re conscientious and care about doing things right, it’s easy to invest a great deal of time and energy in your work — whether that means career, activism, taking care of others in your life. You can get so focused on doing a good job, on every detail, that you finally look up and find that you’ve left yourself no time for play, rest, or romance. This week, remember that there’s more to you than your responsibilities. You’re a whole person. But no need to wildly overcorrect by rejecting all of your duties in favor of fun. Carefully restore balance.

Weekly Horoscope Libra

Libra Weekly Horoscope

While you look for the best in everyone you meet, lately you’ve had to accept that some people won’t ever give you what you need and some social scenes aren’t set up for you to thrive in. So you’ve been trying to remove sources of stress from your life, to clear away problems where you can. Just be sure you aren’t only moving away from what’s unhealthy but moving toward something better. You’re creating new space in your life and your heart. This week, think about how you’ll fill it.

Weekly Horoscope Scorpio

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope

Even strong friendships and good relationships can occasionally swing out of balance. You begin to worry that effort isn’t being reciprocated, that the other person might not care the way you do. This doesn’t necessarily mean that anyone is in the wrong — only that people are complicated and sometimes love takes work. This week, if you require more than you’ve been getting, or if you need others to show up for you in a different way, don’t be afraid to say so. The people in your life want to support you, but they can’t read your mind.

Weekly Horoscope Sagittarius

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope

From professional opportunities to social engagements, your impulse lately has been to say yes to every invitation that comes your way. It’s not because you’re afraid of missing out or turning people down but because you’re genuinely interested in experiencing as much of life as you can. Nevertheless, your energy is finite, and there aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything. This week, your job is to be realistic about your limits, to accept that at a certain point, it becomes necessary to prioritize. Don’t overload yourself. Practice saying no.

Weekly Horoscope Capricorn

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope

While you aren’t afraid of a challenge, you’re not one to take pointless risks. If you’re going to put yourself out there, you want to know that there’s a reasonable chance of success. If you’re going to invest time in a project, it needs to be viable. It’s a wise approach, and it has saved you from bitter disappointment in the past. This week, make sure you aren’t being too cautious. Sometimes the best ideas are the ones that seem silliest and most utopian at first glance. Let yourself dream bigger than you think prudent. You’ll be glad you did.

Weekly Horoscope Aquarius

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope

To you, the most joyful parts of life are art, conversation, and ideas. You feel most alive when you’re with people on the same wavelength as you. In fact, you live so much in your head that your physical existence often comes second. Making time to tend to your body— to eat, rest, exercise — can feel like a hassle, a distraction from all of the things you’d rather be doing. But caring for yourself doesn’t detract from the “real” work of living. It enables it. This week, especially, the more you care for your body, the sharper your mind will be.

Weekly Horoscope Pisces

Pisces Weekly Horoscope

When you face a setback at work, or when days are dull and unrewarding, you begin to fantasize about throwing it all away and starting fresh. You imagine how much better everything might be in a new job, a new city, even a new field entirely. This week, though, don’t do anything drastic — no matter how bored you may be. There will be opportunities later to make changes and reinvent yourself, but right now, if you push through the challenges and the boredom, you’ll be surprised by how good you feel when you emerge on the other side.
