Your Horoscope This Week

You're not just imagining it — that really was a pickup line. Cleverness or corniness aside, everything feels charged with sex magic and innuendo this week. Thank Wednesday's full moon, which falls in Scorpio, the Zodiac's most erotic sign. Forget about passing anyone an obvious "I'm feeling you" note after class. Scorpio's brand of seduction is far more subtle, operating on all the senses. A trailing brush of the hand, a quick but magnetic gaze, a hint of perfume — tiny embers like these could basically start a blazing brush fire.
The question is: Are you in or are you out? There's an "all or nothing" quality to this week's full moon. If it's time to bail, don't linger too long with a guilty goodbye — or ghost without explanation. The direct approach can be cleanest, even if feelings are hurt temporarily. Let 'em know, "This isn't working for me anymore," then bound on to greener pastures. You'll find them easily on Friday, as lusty Mars and adventurous Jupiter align and expand everyone's options. Be open to a totally new type or someone from a different cultural background.

Taurus
April 20 to May 20


Love, love, love — it’s basically all you can think about this week thanks to Wednesday's full moon in Scorpio and your relationship house. Forget keeping it casual — that’s not really your committed sign's style. This lunar lift-off can launch a dreamy flirtation into a full-on relationship. Heads up: The secretive energy of a Scorpio full moon can make it hard to cop to a crush or admit to your S.O. that you're wanting "more." But instead of clamming up, get some private time on the books. Scorpio is the sex-magnet of the skies, so these discussions might even be best staged as post-coital pillow talk.

Up your workout game another notch on Fridays, as vital Mars and adventurous Jupiter throw down the gauntlet. If you perfected your plank — and can hold it for two minutes — work a new muscle group. Variety is the ultimate fitspo, so mix up your routine. Your go-to vinyasa flow class can lengthen while something more vigorous can seriously strengthen. Get out into nature this weekend! It might just be warm enough for glamping or a long hike. Weather not permitting? How about a romantic indoor picnic with pillows and flower petals on the floor?

Gemini
May 21 to June 20


Worship! Your body is your temple, Gemini, and Wednesday's full moon in Scorpio sounds the call for sacred self-care. Put the party all night, sleep all day routine on hold for a minute and devote the week to wellness. Add more clean, green nourishment to your plate. Catch up on your beauty rest, then cash in on your Class Pass when you're good and rested. And how about a massage while you're at it? One thing you don't want to do? Get all fixated on the scale or say negative things about your body. Follow this Instagrammer's body-positive prompts if you need a reminder to love the skin you're in.

Keep the front-facing cam focused on your beautiful self this Friday as a confidence-boosting alignment of Mars and Jupiter make you a star in your own right. Live broadcast your life or set up a photo shoot — an excuse to break out those maximalist muumuus only a Gemini can pull off. Friends won't be the only ones who love watching you in action. A secret supporter could confess to being enamored with you and your work. If it isn't a love connection (and even if it is), this could be a giant leap down the path to prosperity.

Cancer
June 21 to July 22


Seduction, thy name is Cancer. Get ready for a burst of come-hither charm and attraction, because Wednesday’s full moon in Scorpio sizzles in your passionate fifth house. A fling could start looking more like a real thing this week — or you could meet someone with LTR potential. If you’re already attached, keep the flame alive with sweet and sexy gestures. Ditch the yoga pants for some La Perla and make it an evening for two at the Cancer love den. Heads up: These moonbeams could take you straight to the Mothership — happy news for Cancers who want to fulfill the mommy fantasy. Not there yet? Protect, protect, protect. This fame-fueling full moon could also bring public attention for your talents — or simply inspire a photo shoot. (Werk!)

Lately, has it felt like your theme song is "Hold On For One More Day"? Put the nostalgic earworm away this Friday and practice letting go. You’re sentimental by nature, Cancer, but memorializing every object, photo, and relationship can leave you crowded by clutter. Devote the weekend to downsizing and a deep spring clean. It's a leap of faith to believe that disaster won't strike if you give away that spendy dress you bought last year — the one that still has the tags on. Or maybe you'll block someone's number who ghosted and broke your heart, even if you still wonder WTH happened. This trust-building exercise could be a defining moment, Cancer. Moving on can mean moving forward!

Leo
July 23 to August 22


Is your castle a little worse for wear these days, Leo? This Wednesday's full moon in Scorpio sweeps in with spring cleaning motivation. Don the rubber gloves and grab the eco-chic counter sprays. Getting your sanctuary sparkling is step one of blessing your nest. Then, take a peek at shelter blogs, Pinterest boards, and DIY sites (we know you secretly love to get your hands dirty) for inspiration. Maybe you just need new upholstery and pillows along with a paint job — or some of this under $29 springtime cuteness. If you’re pondering a move, start cruising your Redfin app or make an appointment with a realtor midweek. Like all full moons, this one could bring about a decisive event. Hey, Leo, you may find your dream home and snatch it up that day. Have your accounts and paperwork in order so you can act ASAP.

Branch out socially on Friday, when a rare mashup of open-minded Jupiter and dashing Mars makes you feel down for anything. A totally unexpected invite could pop up — one that's too rich to say "No" to. While you might not become a card-carrying member of this scene, your journalistic curiosity will certainly enjoy discovering all its facets. If nothing else, this will make for an amazing story to share at parties (perhaps with some character impersonations thrown in). You could also have a moment of truth with your existing squad. Have they been talking over you or ignoring your ideas? Inform them clearly that this is no way to treat the Zodiac's queen.

Virgo
August 23 to September 22


Keep the capture tool close! Pure genius ideas flow in this week, thanks to Wednesday's full moon in Scorpio and your clever, communicative third house. If you’ve felt stuck with a project or creative work, your long-awaited breakthrough moment arrives. Ask friends for feedback — even offer to buy pizza if they brainstorm with you, focus-group-style. Already put the final touches on a brilliant mission? Now's the time to publicize and market. Cue up the Instagrams, send out a press release. Your natural gift of gab is amplified under these moonbeams — the perfect time to pitch a project, record a podcast, or seal a deal.

On Friday, get ready to take another career leap as daring Mars makes a favorable connection to lucky-duck Jupiter. This one-day formation will give you the courage to ask for what you really want, whether it’s a raise, promotion, or a cut of the sales. (Scared to negotiate? Read this.)

And forget about sitting around, waiting to be noticed. Fortune favors the bold this weekend. Cast modesty aside and brag a little. Or, instead of telling people why you're so awesome, show them! A free trial demonstration of Virgo in action will have people clamoring to be part of your fan club.

Libra
September 23 to October 22


Living paycheck to paycheck? Enough of that, Libra! Wednesday's full moon in Scorpio activates your income zone, helping you discover new and profitable ways to make bank. Have a talk with upper management about growth opportunities. Even if nothing is available on the company job boards ATM, these discussions could guide you to sign up for a training seminar or pick up a special project to nurture your relationship with a colleague who can help you get ahead. Already at max capacity with your earning power? Rejig your budget so you aren't bleeding green. Think creatively: Perhaps a work-study shift at the yoga studio could pay for your classes. Maybe you could help a friend paint her bedroom in exchange for time in her recording studio. The barter system is a great win-win! Set up drinks or go to industry events. Get yourself seen by influencers and employers — results come rapidly as a result of your initiative.

This weekend "anywhere but home" is where a Libra should be. Nomadic Jupiter and daring Mars sync up, activating the spirit of adventure. Could you do a two-day getaway on the cheap? (Think: airline miles and couchsurfing.) If not, opt for day trips like a bike ride and picnic or a road trip to see your favorite local band on their regional tour. If you have some money in the budget, this cosmic combo might be the nudge you need to book the trip to Cuba or the writer's workshop in a Scottish castle. No matter where you are, be open to the kindness — and fondness — of strangers. An attraction could be sparked with someone from a different culture or walk of life.

Scorpio
October 23 to November 21


Get ready for your big reveal, Scorpio! This Wednesday marks 2017's one and only full moon in your sign — a day meant for letting your radiance shine. An opportunity to perform or present could arise, while the more secretive among you could make a splash behind the scenes. Either way, your hard work of the past six months is about to bring you some well-deserved recognition. Ready for a reset? Full moons are manifestation points and as you celebrate a milestone, you may realize that you've gone as far as you care to down a certain path. Don't be afraid to start over somewhere new, Scorpio. Life feels stagnant when you're not challenging yourself.

Boundaries dissolve near Friday, setting the stage for an intimate weekend. Rolling in the deep with your amour du jour? Sounds good. You might not leave the house 'til Monday. If you're craving facetime with your innermost circle, a weekend staycation — at a friend's apartment or a local Airbnb — will clear your cache. Harboring a secret crush? With daring Mars and candid Jupiter in cahoots on Friday, you can 'fess up to your feelings. But why hit 'em over the head with the revelation when seduction is such a Scorpionic art form? Cast a spell with more "show" than "tell."

Sagittarius
November 22 to December 21


Make way for the muse! Wednesday's full moon in Scorpio and your 12th house of fantasy can bring divine downloads galore. But while you're sketching, song-writing, or furiously typing the plot outline of a screenplay, take off the rose-tinted shades. Your optimistic sign likes to see the good in everyone you meet. But positive qualities aren't the same as trustworthy qualities. You may decide to push certain people back to arm's length — especially if handing them the keys to the Sagittarius queendom might mean getting robbed blind. If you’ve met someone new who seems incredible, do some Google snooping! You don’t have to hack their accounts, just see if their story matches who they say they are. If it's time to let go of an outmoded situation, these moonbeams will light the exit ramp. No more deliberating, Archer. Be done with it and create space for something better to flow in!

Your indie spirit is legendary, Archer, but even your go-it-alone sign can benefit from a good collab. On Friday, a lucky matchup of motivator Mars and your ruler, whimsical Jupiter, inspires you to give a new group a go. Break the ice by connecting to people one by one. Don't try to charm the intimidating leader of the pack. Start with the friendlier "gatekeepers" who can put in a good word on your behalf. Over the weekend, the results of a team effort could be better than you ever expected — whether creative, romantic, or in the activism realm. Share your offbeat vision and reap the rewards. People will be down to give your wildest ideas a try!

Capricorn
December 22 to January 19


Break out the bubbly! You could be toasting a shared victory when Wednesday's full moon in Scorpio lights up your 11th house of teamwork. Your squad's efforts of the past six months could come to a shining milestone — or maybe a proposal you worked hard on together gets green-lighted. Even if you haven't hit all your benchmarks take time to applaud how far you've come together since last October 30. These moments of celebration and gratitude are fuel for your tanks. Does it feel like the load is unevenly distributed? Time to ask the rest of your crew to step up. If you know deep down they'll never really pull their weight, you might have to do some recasting of your dream team, ASAP.

Don't shift into weekend warrior mode too soon, Capricorn. On Friday, make-it-happen Mars and enterprising Jupiter get in good-fortune formation. Before the boss leaves the office, drop a quick pitch of your latest vision. Plan your weekend socializing strategically, nestling yourself among the movers and shakers. Splurging on VIP access tickets could be the fastest way to connect with an industry influencer. Funds too tight? Try charming your way onto that list (you'll have the touch this week) or even volunteering in exchange for admission.

Aquarius
January 20 to February 18


Step up to the plate, Aquarius! With little effort, you'll knock it out of the park this week, thanks to Wednesday's full moon in Scorpio and your 10th house of success. Circulate your résumé, ping people in high places on LinkedIn. A polished performance is essential, but drop the perfectionism. Taking a bold leap can be scary — and no one is ever 100% "ready" for it. And hey, if you don't feel confident talking yourself up, ask friends to start a buzz by sharing links and spreading the word. An influential person you work with might also send a recommendation on your behalf. Stop worrying and just ask!

On Friday, energetic Mars in your fame and romance house gets a liberating boost from Jupiter. Your live-out-loud personality cannot be suppressed, validation be damned. Friends and family will always have opinions on what you should wear and who you should date. So what! This self-authorized mashup advises you to close the opinion polls. Love could come in an unexpected form and maybe with a sexy accent. And sure, you might see jaws drop over the weekend. Don't stress it, Aquarius. That's all part of being a trailblazer.

Pisces
February 19 to March 20


Pack your bags, Pisces — or pick some new must-visit coordinates on Google's green Earth. This Wednesday, the annual full moon in Scorpio lights up your worldly ninth house, activating your wanderlust. Researching travel blogs could leave you rethinking your ideal vacation. Instead of doing the fancy, all-inclusive resort, opt for something more authentic, where you can live among the locals and practice a new language in your daily interactions. Change your POV if you can’t reroute your GPS. Mingle multiculturally close to home or sign off for a mind-expanding workshop before the week is through.

On Friday, your Spidey sense will be buzzing as energizer Mars and amplifier Jupiter align in the most intuitive zones of your chart. You're not going mad, Pisces. Those signals you're picking up are real. Pay attention — and investigate. Figuring out the meaning or message of these gut feelings will require you to dive below the surface and do some detective work. You might even discover a secret crush — or a painful betrayal — once you crack the case. But don't let paranoia take hold! The discovery could be something totally magical. Don't be afraid of the unknown.

Aries
March 21 to April 19


Come here often, Aries? Your powers of attraction reach peak levels this week, thanks to Wednesday's full moon in sultry Scorpio. Down the love potion and pursue your pleasure. Seducing the average person is like taking candy from a baby this week — and late night flirtations could get steamy, fast. But for you, Aries, nothing short of a mind-body-soul connection will do. (And maybe a mutual playlist appreciation.) Keep standards high and hang on to your final rose until you're clear about who you're dealing with. Already head over heels for someone? You could plunge in much, much deeper this week, even going as far as happily-ever-after.

On Friday, your ruler, white-hot Mars, gets a celestial sext from bawdy Jupiter. Both of these impulsive planets are in your partnership sectors and their combined powers are pushing you to be more of a relationship risk-taker. Shift out of neutral by professing your feelings, letting bae in on a fantasy or proposing the next step for the two of you. And in the case of platonic pairings, fess up to fangirl status. Someone you admire might want to team up on a project. Nothing ventured, nothing gained — and that willingness to put yourself out there with people will pay off all weekend long.
