Your Horoscope This Week

Rein it in, stargazers. While it's fine to be ambitious, this week is more of a sprint than a marathon. Think incrementally and enjoy life in smaller bites. An overwhelming mission will feel a lot less daunting once it's broken down into microtasks. And how about summoning the spirit of teamwork? With the moon hovering in communal, innovative Aquarius on Monday and Tuesday, try turning those solo-ventures into collaborations. Sure, you'll have to share some credit, but you'll enjoy the glory a lot sooner if you bring in an ensemble cast.
This weekend, on the other hand, will be like Independence Day: The Sequel. Didn't get enough "me time" on the Fourth? With the moon hovering in autonomous Aries on Saturday and Sunday, we can all be a little more self-focused. (Not to be confused with "selfish" — please consider others when doing you.) Relationships can benefit from the "absence makes the heart grow fonder" principle, even if you're just spending a few hours apart. Fearless Aries vibes can bring out our competitive spirits. With a little extra sparkle, we can regain the edge and stand out as unique individuals. With Sunday's quarter moon in the Ram's realm, it might be a makeunder that's required to stand out. Be honest with yourself. Would less actually be more?

June 21 to July 22

Tune in to your instincts, Cancer. Are you getting strange vibes about a situation? This week, you could unravel a mystery, getting to the bottom of some weird or awkward dynamic that's been going on. Don't let your suspicious mind steer the ship. Investigate and get clear facts — or, sit down for a heart to heart and just ask, "Is something bothering you?" There's a chance that someone you adore feels hurt by your actions or maybe needs a little more alone time. But they might also be scared to tell you that. Listen with compassion and an open heart. You can bring back the love by being understanding and allowing them to freely express their truth.

On Saturday and Sunday, you'll feel more like a power player than a weekend warrior. With the moon in your ambitious, elite 10th house, plan for strategic brunching and beaching. Deals could be sealed over Bloody Marys or on the deck at friend's house in the Hamptons. Take the initiative, Cancer, even if you're just having a friendly, getting-to-know-you hang to explore synergies. Ready to make a career change? These three rules can guide you to the win!

July 23 to August 22

Cupid is in your corner, Leo, pulling your focus toward love. Sexting at your desk? You can barely concentrate on that conference call as you wait for a reply to your subversive Snapchat. (Here's hoping the boss didn't see you taking that peekaboo picture.) And while you'll have your hands full of admirers, one contender in particular could draw you in. Slip off for some one-on-one time and get to know them better. By Wednesday, those sultry sparks could evolve into a full-on lovefest. In a long-term thing? Spice it up will the element of surprise. Lure your S.O. out of the office for an afternoon delight, pick up a pair of tickets to a show, or plan a surprise getaway for Friday night.

Wanderlust will hit you hard all weekend, thanks to the moon's tour of Aries on Saturday and Sunday. But you'll be in a far more independent groove than earlier in the week. Suddenly, that soul-merging urge could feel a little claustrophobic. Help...air! Give yourself the space you need to recalibrate and come back to your own center. A trip out of town — with someone else — can do wonders to refresh your attraction if you've been spending too much time together. Missing bae? A romantic weekend getaway is just what the love doctor ordered. Single Leos could fall head over paws for someone from a different cultural background or walk of life. The differences make it dynamic.

August 23 to September 22

Don't give up on those career goals, Virgo — even if they're chugging along at a slower speed than you'd prefer. Early this week, the planets put you back in the driver's seat and you'll start gaining momentum again. Where is your path unclear or in need of better definition? What would you like to accomplish before the summer is through? Map out your wish list and then turn each milestone into a clear action step. For example, "Set up meeting with Melissa about the graphics for the campaign activation" or "Finish application and mail by the July 23 new moon."

This weekend, keep social activities to Restricted Access Only. With the moon simmering in Aries and your intimate (and erotic!) eighth house, you'll prefer the company of your innermost circle. Cancel the group hangs and stick to one-on-ones. Deep conversations can bring white light insights — and may even spur you to tackle an area of life that you want to transform. Love and lust are in the air, too. A sexy play date could keep you, uh, tied up, for longer than expected. Pick out your safe word and enjoy.

September 23 to October 22

Fan those feathers, Libra. The week erupts with an Aquarius moon, which lights up your fierce and flamboyant fifth house. When in doubt, add a flowery metaphor, maximalist flourish, or show-stopping move. The camera loves you, so treat the start of the week like your own extended reality show, recording it all for your Snapchat or Instagram Story. There's hardly such a thing as TMI or too much TLC! Be more expressive with the object of your affections, privately or with a shameless round of PDA. After Wednesday, you'll have to buckle down. The devil is in the details!

Partnerships percolate with promise all weekend as the moon moves into Aries and your relationship zone. You could be attracted to your opposite — someone whose complementary style and skill set grooves nicely alongside yours. As a Libra, you're always seeking balance. Whether for business or pleasure, you may be better off finding someone who can pick up easily where you leave off. Don't be shy about talking labels, either. With a clear commitment, it will be easier for you to relax and give the relationships your all. Also: Invite more serenity into your weekend by bailing on social obligations that drain you instead of give you life. Peace is your birthright!

October 23 to November 21

Trust takes time to build — something your guarded sign knows well. Early this week, put your defense mechanisms on bed rest and slowly start testing the waters with someone who intrigues you. The getting-to-know-you process can give you anxiety, so no need to pull out the deep skeletons in your closet. Start by sharing about an issue that you've worked through. If this friendship evolves, you'll be giving each other advice over drinks (at 2 a.m.) in no time. For now, just show that you’re less than perfect. It makes you accessible, Scorpio.

FOMO alert! Scale back your schedule this weekend, no matter how badly you want to do it all. You really won’t get much out of anything if you’re running on fumes, Scorpio. Devote your time to a few select outings that truly lift you up, and nix those that are likely to suck you dry. Organize socializing around outdoorsy and wellness-based activities. How about a long bike ride and a picnic or yoga and vegan brunch? With the Aries moon lighting up your efficiency zone, you can make a huge dent in some practical missions and projects that you cannot afford to put off much longer. But first, rest and recharge!

November 22 to December 21

It's never been like you to bite your tongue, Sagittarius, so why start now? The week premiers with a moon in Aquarius and your third house of communication. Shut down that monologue unspooling in your head and get into dialogue. Bring up the pink elephant in the room or just engage in some icebreaker chitchat. But keep your attention tuned to sparking synergies and finding win-wins — not aggravating tension by starting debates. In fact, this would be a good week to tune out the naysayers. Build bridges instead of walls. That way, you'll have more allies when it's time to address those touchy topics again. Bonus: By extending yourself to new people, a kindred spirit could emerge before the workweek is through.

Devote the weekend to the pursuit of pleasure. With the Aries moon lounging in your festive, flamboyant, and flirtatious fifth house, your hedonistic side is at the wheel. Cupid will make a few cameos, too — and you will not be shy about seducing your intended target. Try to remember, however, that every hookup is not meant to evolve into a happily-ever-after. Certain people are only good for a season pass — avoid romanticizing yourself into an illusion. Coupled Archers, devote the weekend to co-creation, whether you're redoing your bedroom, getting sized for rings, or getting into baby-making mode.

December 22 to January 19

Ease into the week slowly and gently, Capricorn — even if everyone around you is rushing at a manic pace. With the moon in your sensible, sensual second house on Monday and Tuesday, you'll want to stop and smell the roses — and even buy a dozen to place on your desk. Pacing yourself also means paying attention to details that you probably glossed over. You may discover an unpaid bill, an unanswered message, or another holy s*** oversight that needs to be dealt with immediately. Don't beat yourself up, Capricorn — just apologize earnestly and tick those items off your list. Your sense of humor can save you from a jam. Don't forget, the person in the billing department is a human being, too.

Family and home are your focus this weekend, thanks to the moon's tour of Aries. What's been stressing you out in your personal life lately, Capricorn? Ignoring it won't make it go away. Harness the Ram's direct approach and address any conflicts that are brewing with close friends and relatives. Someone might need to hear a firm "no" or you may have to push back against a strong personality. Stick up for yourself and make sure you have enough personal space at home. Under this pampering planetary influence, self-care is a must. Schedule a well-deserved massage or a spa pedicure.

January 20 to February 18

Shameless peacocking is sanctioned by the stars — at least early in the week as the moon hovers in Aquarius and your house of self-expression. Sparkly brows and 70s platforms were made for days like these, even if you have to modify the look to be a little more office-appropriate. Then, on Wednesday, dial down the maximalism and shift back into a more productive groove. Bring a dose of practical magic to all that you do. Your project management skills can save a promising project from turning into an overly complex nightmare.

Watch your words this weekend, Aquarius, because the moon's tour of your communication zone will make every syllable count. With your gift of gab so electrified, speak up when you see a potential synergy. Casual hangouts could unearth common ground. Who knew you were brunching with your future bandmate, festival buddy, or business collaborator? But don't get so swept up in people's sparkling personalities that you forget to ask them to prove their mettle. Though they may charm you, only time will tell if they can walk their talk. On that note, make sure you don't make any promises that you can't actually keep!

February 19 to March 20

An extra shot of espresso for you, Pisces? Waking up is hard to do, thanks to Monday's moon in Aquarius and dreamy twelfth house. Getting into focus mode will be tough, so if possible, put off any challenging to-do's until Wednesday, when la luna powers into your sign. In the meanwhile, pour your energy into tasks that require imagination and creativity. A lunchtime museum visit or an hour of vinyasa flow could bring a white light moment about a professional project. Then, spend the second half of the workweek pitching, presenting, and making bold moves!

Stop and smell the roses this weekend, Pisces — literally. As the moon winds through your sensual (but sensible) second house, cancel any plans that require you to rush around. Spend time in the fresh air. A hike, bike ride, or romantic picnic will get you back to center. And while your appetite for luxury will intensify, work from a savvy budget. The best things in life (like nature!) are often free. If you do splurge, opt for a classic, go-with-everything piece that is built to last.

March 21 to April 19

All hands on deck! There's strength in numbers this week, Aries. Instead of trying to achieve Wonder Woman status, lend your enthusiasm to a group effort. If you're part of a collective that's lost its team spirit, unleash one of your world famous pep talks. Where are the trouble spots and how can they be repaired? If there's a weak link in the chain, pull the person aside for a private chat. If the slacker-in-question is not invested in the shared goal, show them the door. You've got too much riding on this to let one person bring the ship down.

This weekend, the moon hangs in Aries and you can reclaim your status as a solo star. Forget about going along to get along. You'll have zero patience for following someone else's plan or agenda. With Sunday's quarter moon, you may also have to balance the give and take in some important relationships. No matter how much you adore people, you'll always need your space and solitude. Don't sacrifice it to spare their feelings. Besides, a passion project needs your attention!

April 20 to May 20

The week starts off on an ambitious note and you're poised to make some big strides up the ladder. Focus like a laser beam, sharp and direct. And not just on your task list, Taurus. Who are the power players milling about around you? This is your chance to pour on the charm and avail yourself as the happy helper. Sure, you might have to cover some coffee runs and grunt work to get your flatform sandal in the door, but knowing the right people is more than half the battle. Have you been phoning it in on a project? No bueno, Bull. Bring your A game this week, because some influential eyes are tracking your progress. This is your chance to show and prove — and line yourself up for a promotion.

When the weekend rolls around, you'll be in need of some serious R&R. Don't push yourself to be productive. You've hustled enough! And with the moon lingering in your 12th house of healing, the time off is as reparative as it is restorative. Grab your beach bag and head to the shore, or hang out in a hammock and read. You'll come to life at night. Find an outdoor dance party or splurge on tickets for an amazing DJ set. Watch your margarita consumption and keep your wingwoman near — you won't have the best boundaries under these hazy skies.

May 21 to June 20

Broaden your horizons, Gemini. With the moon activating your wanderlust early this week, you'll want to be anywhere but the usual places. How about renting a mansion for a friends' getaway? Or even check out some solo travel options? Since your feet will already be itching on Monday, do what you can to bring more variety to your workweek. Mingle with coworkers you haven't fully met yet or make a point of picking up lunch from a different spot every day (ideally, destinations that allow you to wander down a brand new block). Feed your mind while you're at it. A mind-blowing TED talk could leave you shook in the best possible way.

This weekend, the more is basically the merrier as the moon hovers in Aries and your 11th house of team. Open up your guest list to newcomers, especially if they come with a friend's endorsement. But under these stars, you never know. Even the tagalong rando could turn out to be an important person in your future. Need to prune some time-wasters from the ranks? Sunday's quarter moon helps you reshuffle your social priorities. Bow out of activities that aren't bringing you bliss and create space for more fulfilling bonds to emerge.
