Your Horoscope This Week

Time to put the "passion" in compassion. This Monday, energizer Mars gets in formation with empathetic Neptune, giving us a clear window into other people's perspectives. Tired of all the squabbling? Purposefully take a walk in someone else's shoes. What experiences have shaped them which might make them see things a certain way? No, that doesn't mean backing off your own values and convictions. But if you want to argue your case successfully, it can be useful to speak to the other person's concerns. Soulful Neptune lends some patience to Mars' short fuse, making these difficult dialogues a lot easier to navigate. Mars is also the warrior planet — and this beam from "heal the world" Neptune can inspire us to fight the good fight for the underdog. Just make sure that you put a little (or a lot) of love in your heart.
Taking off for a four-day weekend? Don't forget your favorite plus-one. With the moon in partnership-oriented Libra on Saturday, you may need to rebalance a few things in your relationship — especially if one of you has been doing more giving and the other more taking. When la luna drifts into sultry Scorpio on Sunday and Monday, duos can become intensely dynamic. Hello, fireworks!

June 21 to July 22

Roll the dice! Your risk-averse nature goes AWOL this Monday as make-it-happen Mars is blessed by no-limits Neptune. Suddenly, it feels like the world is your oyster — and with a little excavation, you'll find pearls sitting right under your nose. But don't stop there. With Neptune in your nomadic ninth house, distant lands are calling. Find out about travel opportunities (even ones related to work) or bite the bullet and book that ticket to Bali, Barcelona, or the Bay area. It's Cancer season until July 22, so why not refresh your internal feed with a change of scenery? You could discover a home away from home. No matter what your Google Earth coordinates, make a point of speaking your truth and voicing your desires. Your candor will open doors and inspire others to be more vocal themselves.

Start the weekend off with some R&R. Chill at home — and maybe pin some decor porn like this "unicorn artist and entrepreneur's" DIY flower wall. The creative energy keeps flowing on Sunday (and Monday) with the moon in Scorpio and your unbridled, flamboyant fifth house. But you'll be less of a loner then, so if you're taking on anything artsy, turn it into a project party. This could be the excuse you need to invite a crush to stop by Chateau Cancer. That glue gun won't be the only thing that's plugged in and smoking hot!

July 23 to August 22

Déjà vu? Monday's mashup between karmic Neptune and passionate Mars could stir an attraction with someone you could swear you met before. True, Leo, it may have happened in a past lifetime — but, whatever! If you feel the pull to connect to someone this week or just spark up a conversation, follow your instincts. This could be the start of a beautiful friendship and maybe a whole lot more. Coupled Leos will enjoy the intimate vibe this cosmic connection brings. Have you been keeping a secret from someone you love or withholding some information about your past? Let there be no more shame in your game. Set up some private time and have a heart to heart. The truth shall set you free.

Beware analysis paralysis this weekend! Saturday's three-way battle between the moon, Mars, and Pluto could make you anxious about an upcoming decision. Don't choose impulsively or let other people pressure you into making a choice before you feel at least 90% clear. Call your wise and objective friends and talk through a few different scenarios. If nothing feels right, you could also make a counteroffer. Negotiate, Leo! With the moon shifting into Scorpio and your house of family on Sunday, a relative could also be your sounding board — and your rock! This might be the excuse you need to take an extended weekend to visit your sister or mom!

August 23 to September 22

You like things done "just so," Virgo, but has that left you doing too much by yourself? On Monday, stressful Mars in your teamwork sector gets some soothing love from Neptune in your house of balance and partnership. Just let go — for the sake of your own serenity! It's time to delegate, outsource, and adopt a more collaborative approach. Give people clear guidelines, but don't be a total control freak. Allow some room for creativity because their ideas could enhance what you've already got going on. You never know: This could be the start of a powerful and profitable partnership.

This weekend, give the magic lasso back to Wonder Woman. Though you'll be tempted to rush in for the save, you need to let other people find solutions to their problems. If you don't, you could wind up sucked in to some dramatic dynamics — and worse, missing out on an opportunity to enjoy some much needed playtime and romance. On Sunday, especially, you need to just be in the moment. With the moon in intimate Scorpio, one-on-one time with a close friend or love interest could consume your day in the best possible way. Put your phone on Do Not Disturb and check those Snapchats later!

September 23 to October 22

Stepping into a bigger league, Libra? With motivator Mars in your career zone since June 4, you keep rising higher. But as you ascend, you could also wind up spreading yourself too thin — and even burning out. This Monday, soul-soothing Neptune sends support, reminding you of the importance of structure and self-care. Sure, Libra, you can do it all. But who said you have to do it all right now? Before you make another commitment, get your calendar sorted out. Plug in all your appointments and set reminders. Bow out of activities that aren't bringing a proper return on investment: Time is money, after all. Then, create space for yoga classes, pedicures, and — hello — sleep!

The weekend begins with a Libra moon, which will put you in your emotional element on Friday night. Cancel plans with anyone who doesn't see, love, and appreciate you — or anyone who is just a little too thirsty. (Oh, the pressure!) There are far too many feel-good relationships to nurture. You might even get a surge of confidence and pick up the karaoke mic or perform a mic-dropping monologue on your social media feeds. Tell it like it is, but find a balance between sass and class. The great outdoors are calling on Sunday, so go luxuriate at a rooftop brunch spot or take a picnic to the park. Pack a little extra to share. You could run into an intriguing acquaintance you'd like to know better.

October 23 to November 21

There's power in peacocking — as your fashion-forward sign knows well. Please don't hold back this week, Scorpio. Monday's spotlight-loving merger between glamorous Neptune and fierce Mars will make the whole world feel like your catwalk. Wearing your style on your sleeve is a great way to screen people. The appreciators are the ones you want in your life. Those who judge or throw you shade? Good riddance! That said, you'll feel uncharacteristically open to strangers in the first part of the week. Spark up a conversation with anyone who catches your interest. A cross-cultural click could turn into a love connection with Mars and Neptune in sync. The differences are what make it all so dynamic.

This weekend, leave room in the calendar for ample "me time." Like a psychic sponge, you'll have absorbed a lot of energy from people earlier in the week — in true Scorpio fashion, you just soak up the vibes of the room. Light the sage wand and take a long bath to clear and shield your "field." If you go dancing, don't let any socially awkward people tag along and make you babysit them. You need to lose yourself in the music, not in their insecurities. With the moon zipping into Scorpio for two-and-a-half days on Sunday, a passion project calls. Silence your phone and follow the muse — or set off on a solo adventure like thrifting for art supplies or digging for old school LPs at a record shop.

November 22 to December 21

Don't ignore those subtle signals and unspoken cues. Early this week, as esoteric Neptune and instinctual Mars align, your psychic radar is cranked to the highest setting. You're not imagining those ripples of positive energy, waves of attraction — or even the hint of shade being thrown your way. But how to respond to it all? Fiery Mars can make you quick to react, but that can become problematic if you aren't also armed with facts. Think of these intuitive hits as a prompt to further investigate. There's definitely more going on than what meets the eye. The question is: Do you actually want to get involved here? Do your detective work, then decide.

Choose your company wisely this weekend. Though Saturday's Libra moon makes you everyone's favorite plus-one, you won't take kindly to needy people who want you to play on-call therapist. Wandering through the crowds, bantering with strangers and moving on to the next person? That's more like it. On Sunday, as the moon slips into Scorpio and your rejuvenating 12th house, you'll be more of a people-watcher than an interactive member of the group. Better idea? Find a hammock to nap in or stake out a sandy spot and plant your beach umbrella. Reading, journaling, or just splashing around in the waves will be your revival. If anyone joins you, make sure they understand the definition of comfortable silence.

December 22 to January 19

You know what they say about the word "assume," Capricorn. (No? It makes an ass out of "u" and me.) Leave nothing up to chance early this week as nebulous Neptune gets a nudge from firecracker Mars. With both planets in your partnership houses, your vague answers could create chaos with the people in your life. From the boardroom to the bedroom, your best bet is to clarify terms, even if that means potentially hurting someone's feelings or asking an awkward question like, "So, where do you see the two of us heading in the future?" No need to stress! The Mars-Neptune formation is a positive one, which means the outcome could be better than you expect it to be.

This weekend, don't blow off all responsibilities — at least not without making sure those bases are covered and no one ends up shafted. By the same token, don't let other people saddle you with their extra work. While you may want to prove that you're a loyal team player, someone could mistake your kindness for weakness. Being part of this squad might not be worth that level of sacrifice. Don't set yourself up to be used and abused. Set limits and negotiate a game plan that feels fair and respectful to your time, too! This might be your cue to spend time with a new group. Sunday's Scorpio moon could bring an intriguing invite worth attending!

January 20 to February 18

Start the week off practicing random acts of kindness. Charitable Neptune and heroic Mars form a dashing angle on Monday. It truly is Aquarius to the rescue! At work, your ability to think on your feet — and drum up ingenious solutions, at that — will be to everyone's benefit. But stop short of loaning larger sums of money to anyone, even if their story tugs on your heartstrings. Nebulous Neptune can create messy dynamics with IOUs. Unless you're fine with never being paid back, keeping your wallet shut can also keep your friendship intact. There are other ways to help, like offering advice, pitching in for a few hours of volunteer support, or pointing friends to books and resources that have changed your life.

Check the faresaver promos! The workweek wraps with the moon in Libra and your ninth house of travel. You could head straight from the office to the airport for a four-day getaway — or maybe hop the train to visit your friend with the beach house. Warning: A needy person could try to guilt you into staying put on Saturday when all you want to do is go. Weigh the pros and cons: If sticking around will make you resentful, don't do it. Just stay in touch while you're out and about. On Sunday, an important dude could pop up on your radar. Give this guy proper airtime, as something important could emerge from your interaction.

February 19 to March 20

Peacock ombre or lavender smoke? Hit 'em with the unexpected this week, Pisces — from a daring 'do to your unconventional moves. On Monday, no-holds-barred Mars in your flamboyant fifth house gets a beam from your ruler, glamorous Neptune. Channel those creative vibes into your love life, too. One of Cupid's arrows could strike from left field, revealing an attraction that takes both of you by total surprise. You could meet your match on the dance floor early this week, which is good reason to attend one of those insiders-only Monday night parties. Already attached? Step out together for some cultural activity dates — and dress up like a selfie-ready, Fashion Week Kim and Yeezy.

How much info qualifies as oversharing? The weekend comes with a strong "blurt alert," especially when you're in the company of people you don't really know that well. Your bonds run deep, Pisces, and you love to connect by sharing intimate secrets. But Saturday's complicated alignment of the moon, Mars, and Pluto could be hiding a snake in sister's clothing. Unless your trust has been earned, keep it in the vault! With the moon in your outspoken ninth house on Sunday, you'll have an even harder time staying bottled up. But you may have some sage wisdom to share. No shame in sharing a lesson you learned. Just go light on the details and don't name any names!

March 21 to April 19

Have people accused you of hogging the mic or being a little, er, self-absorbed? Hey, Ram, you were just sharing passionately about your life. This week you get a chance to show the world what a great listener you are — and truly, this is a skill you have in the Aries arsenal. Don't try to coach people or come up with practical solutions. Just let them know that they've been heard and understood. With your ruler Mars in a heart-opening trine (120-degree angle) to compassionate Neptune, your greatest gift will be empathy. The power of positive thinking can take you far this week, too. Stop talking about all the things that could go wrong and focus on what you do want! Make a vision board (on paper or Pinterest) if you can't seem to put it into words. The Law of Attraction is on your side.

This weekend, things could feel off with someone from your innermost circle. You've shared your secrets and maybe even a bed, so it makes sense that the distant vibes would bug you. But if you keep pushing for resolution and they keep pulling away, it's best to put the conversation on ice for a few days. Celebrate your independence by turning your attention to a more positive partnership. Besides the fact that time (and space) heals all wounds, you could wind up cementing an important bond!

April 20 to May 20

Want to round out June with a feather in your fedora? Play the game this week, Taurus, and network like it was your second job. With boundary-dissolving Neptune firing up go-getter Mars, your courageous initiative will open doors. Pro tip: Be confident, but don't charge in like a bull in a china shop! Graceful Neptune helps you apply a softer touch. Meet for lunch or set up a conference call before you start talking contracts and paperwork.

This weekend, pay no attention to that "beach body" bullshit. If you're wearing a bathing suit and chilling in the sand, then boom! You have a beach body, Taurus. Pack your cooler with treats and leave the small-minded shamers on the train platform. (Bye!) Your confidence could attract more than one admirer, especially on Sunday when the moon heads into your relationship house for two days. Already attached? Sunday brunch could begin with a heart-to-heart about better ways to balance the flow between you. Get this sorted so you can stop making up stories in your head. What's going on with your S.O. or squadmate is not what you guessed.

May 21 to June 20

Got a bold request to make? Now is the time, Gemini. On Monday, fierce Mars in your money zone mingles with enchanted Neptune in your ambitious 10th house. This cosmic cocktail is like a giant cup of courage with a charm chaser. Go for the direct hit and just ask for what you want — a raise, promotion, a chance to be project lead on an enticing assignment. That Gemini salesmanship is pretty unparalleled. Few can say "No" when you lay out the facts and follow it up with your infectious grin. With karmic Neptune in the mix, show the universe that you're willing to pay your dues. Make a donation to a good cause or even volunteer a few hours to get your espadrille in the door.

This weekend, the devil — and a chorus of archangels — are in the details. Pay attention to the little things, whether you're reminding your S.O. to hold on to a forgotten dream or researching recipes for a vegan friend who's coming to your July Fourth barbecue. With the moon in your healthy living zone on Sunday, plan an active day in the fresh air. Rally your squad for kickball in the park or bond with an inner circle favorite with a long bike ride or a hike to a scenic picnic spot.
