Early Wednesday morning, Venus enters Libra, where it can effortlessly express its loving nature. Your attention is likely to turn toward your relationships: Which ones make you happy? Which are out of balance and need tending to? This is a good opportunity to make peace and mend fences. Just be careful not to smooth things over at the expense of your own needs. Late Thursday night, communication planet Mercury enters candid and independent Sagittarius. The best way to use this energy? Telling the truth. This isn’t the time to be shy or to hold back out of fear that you don’t know the right words to say. It’s most important simply to be honest.
Aries Weekly Horoscope
Life is complicated, and there are rarely easy solutions to the problems it presents in your life, let alone societal, global ones. It can be enough to make you despair, to give up hope and to lash out in frustration. This week, your faith in other people may be restored. Not by-and-by, but by actively making it so. If you do your best to live out your values, no matter how challenging, others will be naturally drawn to your confidence. You’ll feel less alone. You’ll believe, once more, that it’s possible to change the world.
Taurus Weekly Horoscope
You’ve been struggling lately, as have many of your loved ones. Maybe you’ve felt weighed down, discouraged. How can you hope to meaningfully contribute when you’re up against so much? What’s the point of helping when you’ll never be able to help enough? This week, dig into the most stubborn part of yourself. Even if you can’t save the world right now, don’t give up trying. No matter what barriers are thrown in your way, they can’t take away your integrity, your spirit, your good, courageous heart.
Gemini Weekly Horoscope
In times of stress and upheaval, you sometimes feel like you aren’t “allowed” to laugh or crack jokes anymore — like you’re only supposed to experience bleak and somber emotions. It’s not that you don’t take life seriously, and you want to be caring and respectful, but part of you also wants to dance and play. This week, it’s important not to feel guilty about or suppress that side of yourself. Humans are complicated. You don’t have to hide your multitudes.
Cancer Weekly Horoscope
You’ll do whatever it takes to protect the people you care about, and recently you’ve been going above and beyond. And so it’s understandable, this week, if you need to rest. Don’t imagine that you can keep on pushing through the exhaustion forever — it’ll catch up with you. This week, pay attention to your body. If you need to take a day off, cancel plans, do it. You aren’t lazy or neglecting your responsibilities: You’re renewing your strength.
Leo Weekly Horoscope
You’ve been noticing cracks in certain relationships lately, maybe even your closest, longest-standing ones. People you thought you understood on a deep level have shown themselves to be on a different wavelength; friends you’ve known for years have changed, or maybe you have. The flip side is that you’ll also find out who you can really rely on — and it might not be who you expect. Casual acquaintances, new friends, even people you’ve had differences with in the past — they will show up for you when you need it most.
Virgo Weekly Horoscope
You have a big heart, but it’s a challenge to be as giving as you’d like when your time is scheduled down to the minute and your resources budgeted down to the penny when you hardly have what you need for yourself. This week, though, be intentional about sharing what you can. Not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because your generosity will encourage the same in others. (This is always true, but especially now.) It’ll deepen your relationships, strengthen your community, and make your own life better and more beautiful in ways you never predicted.
Libra Weekly Horoscope
Sometimes, self-doubt sets the stage for growth: It prompts you to dig deeper, to question what you’ve been told and open your mind to new ideas. You’ve experienced this in your own life as you’ve matured, expanding your understanding of the world. Even so, it’s important — this week especially — to remember that you’re allowed to put your foot down when it matters. Not all perspectives are worth hearing out. Stay curious and open, but don’t let other people push you around or make you believe your experiences or values don’t count.
Scorpio Weekly Horoscope
When you’re mistreated — and especially when it’s by the people closest to you — it can be hard to trust again. Part of you remains suspicious, making sure you never give more than you receive in return. You’re not wrong to want to protect yourself or to be careful not to be taken advantage of. But for now, take a break from your mental ledger. This isn’t a time for keeping score, but for loving others as fully as you can, for being as generous with your time and attention as feels good to you.
Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope
Your independent spirit is a gift; you’re not afraid to fly solo, take risks, live life on your own terms. This week, however, when you try to act alone, without support or assistance, you’re likely to run into trouble and get discouraged. You’ll be reminded of your limits as an individual. The solution isn’t to give up or retreat into yourself, but to find other people to share the load. You can’t do everything on your own, and you don’t have to: Your friends are ready and willing to help.
Capricorn Weekly Horoscope
Experience has given you the impression that courage and integrity are never rewarded — at least, not in your life. From your boss to your parents to your social circle, it seems like everyone wants you to play nice and keep the peace, to avoid rocking the boat under any circumstances. This week, though, don’t worry so much about anyone’s expectations. If you stay true to yourself and your values, even (especially) when it’s hard, you’ll find that the right people are drawn to you.
Aquarius Weekly Horoscope
You’re endlessly curious about the world and the people in it; you have an active mind that has you forever learning and seeking and asking the big questions. This week, though, the best way to broaden your understanding isn’t through intellect, but emotion. It may sound cheesy to you, but it’s true. Right now, you don’t have to have all the answers, or even look for them. Instead, approach others with sincere interest and a genuine desire to connect. Caring about people, loving them, is enough.
Pisces Weekly Horoscope
Relationships of all kinds are probably going to be intense this week. Conflicts may seem earth-shattering; the smallest disagreement feels like the end of the world. At the same time, though, kind gestures and shows of support will bolster you more than you would have thought possible. It’s easy to get embarrassed by your strong reactions, especially when they arise from low-stakes encounters, but try to embrace it as a sign of your humanity. It means that you’ve kept your heart open.
