Your Horoscope This Week

Illustrated by Abbie Winters.
The bad news: Venus retrograde is still in full throttle this week. The good news: We can get a mini break from it if we lean into the collaborative, easy energy of Mercury and Jupiter, which are currently palling around in Scorpio together.
Meanwhile, Venus and Uranus are still opposing each other. With Uranus messing with Venus' influence on our fashion sense, Halloween might be an unusual night, costume-wise. If kooky isn't your thing, don't stress: We'll all be feeling more balanced and fair-minded toward the end of the week, when Venus moves into Libra.
From Sunday night to Tuesday night, the moon is in Cancer — feel free to pull back from the fray if you need time to heal, but remember there's a difference between feeling sorry for yourself and actively healing. The moon will then move into Leo, just in time to increase your sense of theatricality for Halloween. By the weekend, the moon shifts to practical Virgo, so that you can tackle your to-do list all day Saturday. This is a great day to start something new.

March 21 to April 19

There’s no time like the present, Aries! If you’ve been waiting to talk someone’s ear off, Monday is the day to do so. Chatty Mercury and lucky Jupiter are working away at creating a serendipitous opportunity for you, most likely in your career sector. Here's some easy advice for your go-getter sign: Take the money and run with it.

On the night of All Hallow’s Eve, the communication planet will make his way into freewheeling Sagittarius. It’s time to pitch your wildest ideas and see what sticks with those who listen. Plus, with intense Scorpio season fueling your fire, you’re feeling energized to get to the bottom of any problem.

April 20 to May 20

On Sunday, you’ve got money on your mind, Taurus. Mercury, your financial planet, has linked up with lucky Jupiter, and this planetary collaboration may yield good cash vibes this week.

If you’re in a relationship, spend time with your partner Monday and don't be scared to throw caution to the wind. Do something daring and watch those sparks fly. If you’re single, get out on the town, school night or not. Speaking of school nights, who cares if Halloween's on a Wednesday this year? Go out and enjoy yourself.

Try to keep your cool at work, since Venus and Uranus are opposing each other, which could lead your health and career sectors to clash. Diffuse any inner conflicts by changing up your work environment (standing desk, anyone?).

May 21 to June 20

Are you feeling lucky, Gemini? Mercury and Jupiter are currently conjunct, working together to help you sparkle from their post in Scorpio. When Mercury, ever the speedy conversationalist, teams up with Jupiter, the knowledge seeking giant, your natural talents tend to shine. If you have anything to present during this week, don't sweat it — you’ll positively light up the room!

Midweek, Mercury moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius. Once in this scholarly sign, the communication planet will fan the fires of your curiosity. You’ll feel most fulfilled if you can feed your brain with new facts — and doing so will likely attract more like-minded friends.

June 21 to July 22

Get ready to feel warmer and fuzzier than usual, Cancer. Mercury and Jupiter have formed a conjunction in Scorpio, coaxing you to come out of your shell and spend time with your partner or your dearest friends. When the mood strikes, you can be an incredible host, dear Crab. And if you host an early Halloween get together this week, it could be a night to remember.

But if you’re too busy whipping your routine into shape to plan a party, use this week to tackle one specific project that’s been hanging over your head. Focusing in one task will make it easier to conquer — especially if you try viewing it from a new angle.

July 23 to August 22

Your week is off to a sweet start, thanks to Mercury and Jupiter working away in Scorpio. If you’ve been putting off any paperwork or logistical tasks, now is the time to tick those chores off your to-do list. Your financial planet and your planet of luck are playing nice at the moment — take advantage of those good vibes.

Rearranging your living space will boost your mood during the Venus retrograde. Be sure to stick to smaller tasks — don't attempt any extreme home makeovers until Venus is direct next month. If you get out of the house on Halloween, you’ll be sure to attract new friends, as Venus scoots into Libra.

August 23 to September 22

This week you'll learn just how infectious a good mood can be, Virgo. Everyone will be feeling easy and breezy on Monday, thanks to Mercury and Jupiter's conjunction in Scorpio. If you’ve been wanting to go somewhere new, but can’t make the time to travel right now, why not explore a new neighborhood in your city? Switch up your routine and broaden your horizons at home — doing so will likely improve your mood even more.

Venus, your career planet, is still retrograde, so don't feel bad if you have a little fun on a school night. Get out of the house on Halloween! Venus enters Libra midweek, ensuring that the costume you don that night will be anything but boring.

September 23 to October 22

We’re still in the midst of Venus retrograde, but that doesn’t mean that love and money (and the joys they tend to bring) are gone from the world, Libra. Early this week, Mercury and Jupiter's easy alignment in Scorpio will bring you news about your finances. If you’ve been putting your ideas to paper and energy to work, the universe could have a little treat in store for you.

You’re a great friend, Libra, but have you ever been accused of being a people-pleaser? Don’t be afraid to speak your mind! Guard your time on Wednesday, when Venus enters Libra, and trust that those who really care won't mind if you tell them "no" just this once.

October 23 to November 21

The sun and Jupiter are both in your sign and lighting up your life right now, Scorpio. It’s your time to shine. If you’re in a relationship, spend Monday with your partner and do something to show them how much you appreciate them.

If you’re single or dating, resist those first date jitters and put all your cards on the table. Don't be shy about what you’re looking for in a relationship — if it’s meant to be, they’ll be charmed. If it’s not, you should find comfort (and confidence) in the fact that you put yourself out there. Whoever you choose to spend your time on Monday, they should count their lucky stars that you wanted them.

November 22 to December 21

It’s time to get inspired, Sag! This Monday, Mercury and Jupiter’s alignment in Scorpio will bring fun and creativity back into your work life. Mercury rules your zones of career and love, while Jupiter adds a dose of wisdom and luck to the mix. Under these skies, the more effort you put in, the more you’ll get out of it.

Spend this week working on projects that came out of your own passionate ideas. If you’re in a relationship, take your partner out on an adventure. Single? Chat with people who are willing to embrace spontaneity. With an eager partner in crime, you never know where you could end up.

December 22 to January 19

The ongoing Venus retrograde seems to be affecting you more deeply than most signs, Capricorn. Could that be because you’re one of the hardest workers out there? Venus is, after all, your career planet, so may be experiencing some stops and starts at work — which is likely irksome for an ambitious Goat.

Despite the foggy retrograde vibes, Monday could offer an extraordinary treat. A Mercury-Jupiter conjunction in Scorpio gives you a boost of energy. The communication and luck planets are here to lend you the gift of gab and clear mind thats you need to succeed. If you’re looking to make a big purchase or sign something important, use Monday's blessing to seal the deal.

January 20 to February 18

Are you ready to turn it up to 11 at work, Aquarius? This week, the sun continues to shine his light on your house of social status. That energy will only be increased by Mercury and Jupiter’s conjunction in Scorpio. Make sure that you’re ready for this week's advantageous energy by picking out your outfits, setting your grooming schedule, or prepping your lunches on Sunday. Do whatever you need to feel poised and ready to knock 'em dead come Monday.

If you’ve got any other important to do’s lined up, try to squeeze them in before Thursday, when Mercury will move into Sagittarius. Make the most of this magic, Water Bearer.

February 19 to March 20

You’re tougher than most people give you credit for, Pisces. Venus’ retrograde affects each of us differently, and the next few weeks will feel slow when you want them to move fast. Grit your teeth and show the cosmos that they've met their match.

Luckily, Mercury and Jupiter are joining forces to bring you luck in work and love. Spend your days chatting with peers about your deepest desires at your job. Then, spend your nights connecting with your partner or friends. It’s a week to celebrate! On Wednesday, watch out for conflict and hold your ground. You deserve to be loved in the way that you give love. Don’t settle for less.
