Aries (March 21 – April 19)

In the mood for a health reboot, Aries? For the next month, the Sun will be your wellness coach as it cruises through Virgo and your salubrious sixth house. From Saturday until September 22, there’s no such thing as too much self-care. Map out a new weekly workout plan, join a meditation circle or add more plant-based meals to your diet. Trade that craft beer for some craft kombucha—and don’t forget the importance of a clear mind. If you’ve been obsessing on the same old subject, try meditation and breathwork practices to calm anxiety. Give the nitty-gritty your full attention under Sunday’s focused Sun-moon sextile. Abandon the big picture for the moment and focus on the smaller tasks in front of you. Could a few tiny tweaks make a major difference? Slow down and spend time honing the finer facets of this particular venture. Just don’t get so fixated that you disrupt the timeline (or budget!) of your project. You may need to burn a little midnight oil to get to the finish line, but it will be well worth the extra effort! See the full week >

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

Speak your mind, Bull! You’ll attract more than a few admirers with your candid charisma as the Sun shines in Virgo and your fifth house of drama and romance from Saturday until September 22. Creative date-planning will win you points, whether with a new Tinder match or someone you’ve been sharing a life with for years. This fame-fueled cycle could push your work into the public eye. Help move things along with some strategic promotion—and be liberal with the bells and whistles! Under Sunday’s spirited Sun-moon sextile, you could be too easygoing about who gets added to your guest list. Unfortunately, this could throw a wrench into your plans to just relax and enjoy your Sunday. If you’re not wildly excited about hanging out with people, avoid any commitments and focus on friends who elevate your mood instead. There’s nothing to feel bad about, Bull, so don’t let guilt interfere with your serenity. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Your nesting instincts get a supercharged activation starting this Saturday as the Sun hunkers down in Virgo and your fourth house of domesticity. Between now and September 22, you might tighten up the radius of your inner circle so the people who REALLY matter don’t get shortchanged. Already living a decor blogger’s dream? Chez Gemini will be a magical place during this transit, whether you’re hosting a small, safe gathering or livestreaming regularly from home base. If you’ve been considering a change of address, the next four weeks are an ideal time to shop around. Set up the Redfin alerts and begin your search! Treat your body like the temple it is on Sunday. That might mean restocking the kitchen with ingredients for healthy meals and nourishing snacks. Try planning out recipes for the week before you hit the grocery store, perhaps choosing a common ingredient, like kale or basil, that can be used in multiple dishes. Take time to stretch, do a little yoga or, better yet, go for a long walk to clear your head. See the full week >

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Your gift of gab kicks in this Saturday as the Sun blazes into Virgo and charges up your third house of communication until September 22. It’s not always easy for you to articulate your inner world, but over the coming four weeks, you’ll be amazed at how natural it feels to express your emotions and put your thoughts into words. During this social cycle, your calendar will get full before you realize it, which can get dicey for your loving but private sign. Block out a FEW slots for solo time, or you might not get a minute to yourself! Sunday’s moon in Scorpio brings out your sultry and flamboyant side. If you’re willing to make the first move, romantic developments could happen fast! Working on a project? Play a little “show and tell,” letting your friends have a look at what you’re cooking up. Who knows? They could have some valuable feedback and ideas. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Get ready to raise your financial IQ as the Sun blazes into Virgo and your second house of money management. Even if birthday season 2020 was subdued, it’s likely that you need to get back on a budget after the past 30 days. While you don’t have to deprive yourself of all decadence, be more mindful about what you spend and save. If you’re on the hunt for more gainful employment, the Sun’s bright beams bring an added blessing to your search and interview process. Or just resume pouring all of your famous passion into your work. Sunday’s moon in your house of family, roots and emotional security directs your energy back to base. While it’s been a thrill to spread your wings during Leo season, you also need a proper nest where you can rejuvenate. Devote some time to self-care so you can keep your tanks full, and reconnect with your inner circle for some much-needed unconditional love. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Welcome back, Virgo! Today begins your official birth month as the Sun heads into your sign until September 22. After a dreamy, and possibly emotionally heavy, month, you’re waking up again! So…what’s next? Get proactive! For the coming four weeks, try things on for size. Don’t rush to pin down a five-year plan, but DO allow yourself to dabble and take little steps that feel more “risky” than safe. By moving stuck energy, even in a small way, you’ll be back on your journey! Sunday’s moon in Scorpio revs up your intuition. Slow down and pay attention to any gut feelings. Journal about them and see what arises from your subconscious. Have you been experiencing serendipities (e.g., looking at the clock at the same time, “randomly” bumping into a friend right after thinking about them)? This inner guidance is leading you somewhere important, and this weekend, you may begin to get a sense of what it all means. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Relax, relate, retreat. On Saturday, the Sun drifts into Virgo and your twelfth house of transitions for a month, marking the final phase of your annual solar cycle. As much as you want to get up and go, this time is better used for rest, rejuvenation and maybe an end-of-season getaway. On September 22, the Sun bursts into Libra, and you’ll be ready to take on the world again. In the days leading up to then, what can you release? From outworn possessions to toxic relationships to commitments that drag you down, letting go of “extra” will heal your soul. Sunday’s balancing moon in your grounded second house helps you prioritize and streamline. Over the past month, you may have met some fascinating people who you sensed could fit into your future plans. Now it’s time to start following up. Connect with them on LinkedIn or Insta, set up some talk time to share details of the developing projects that have collaboration potential. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Log in and get connected! On Saturday, the Sun shifts signs, heading into Virgo and your eleventh house of tech and teamwork for a month. Kindred spirits could start popping up everywhere, sliding into your DMs and showing up at socially distanced gatherings. Whether virtually or IRL, seize this rare social window to generate collaborations. Maybe it’s time to organize an online summit or pool resources with a group to support one another through economic hardships. Between now and September 22, you’ll be living proof that there is strength in numbers. Sunday’s moon in Scorpio trades friendly fire with the Sun, intensifying your desire to take the initiative. If you’ve been a quietly observant teammate, now’s the time to unleash the thoughts that have been simmering up. Don’t worry about flooding people with TMI. Your enthusiasm will catch on quickly, making this a powerful day for brainstorming. Instead of casting votes on “doable or not,” just capture all ideas for future consideration. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Your career kicks into high gear starting Saturday as the Sun plants itself in Virgo and your ambitious tenth house until September 22. Those end-of-summer barbecues will double as networking events, so keep your mask handy and any presentation materials easily pulled up on your phone. During this solar cycle, casual conversation can quickly evolve into plans for a business collab. Now is the time to aim really high, Archer, pointing your arrows at an outsized goal. Polish up your pitch decks because the next four weeks could be spent fielding job offers and wooing influential people from Zoom to the boardroom. Sunday’s moon in your twelfth house asks, How much is too much? Take a step back and sift through all of your options. Which ones resonate with your soul, eliciting a deep “yes!” from within? Those are the ones to put at the top of the heap, Archer. The rest will have to wait. As the saying goes, you CAN have it all—just not all at once. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

A calculated risk is hardly a foolish gamble, Capricorn. And starting Saturday, you’re ready to play a higher-stakes game as the Sun makes its annual trek through Virgo and your venturesome, expansive ninth house. Whether you’re starting a business or stepping into greater authority at your current gig, you’ll enjoy a “no limits” approach to your ambitions between now and September 22. Need to get your skills up to snuff? Invest in the right coaching or training, and you’ll accelerate in no time. In personal affairs, be authentic—but tactful!—and let your truth hang out. Sunday’s moon in your group-activity network pulls you out of your bubble and into the wider world. If you’ve been consumed with one specific idea or relationship, obsessing privately ceases to be productive after a certain point. Stop trying to work things out in your head, Capricorn. Reach out to your squad and let them help you with advice, introductions and solid support. Chances are, these people owe you a favor or two anyhow! See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Your seductive side takes the wheel starting Saturday as the Sun grooves through Virgo and your erotic eighth house until September 22. A relationship could grow incredibly intimate in the days ahead, especially if you create the perfect (private) atmosphere for twosome time. But look out! While jealousy and possessiveness don’t usually trip up your cool-headed sign, you might wind up in the green-eyed monster’s crosshairs now. Steer clear of dangerous liaisons and turn your attention toward people who can go the distance. On Sunday, the moon in your ambitious, future-focused tenth house has you thinking about a five-year plan (or heck, maybe just a five-month one, but that’s still major for your spontaneous sign). Over the past month, one or two alliances have shown real promise, perhaps romantically or for a business venture. Now it’s time to make sure that you’re on the same page for the long haul. The warm-and-fuzzy vibes will only carry you so far, so don’t be afraid to talk about the boots-on-the-ground details. See the full week >

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

The Sun heads into Virgo this Saturday, beaming its love light into your seventh house of partnerships until September 22. Get in cahoots with Cupid! This solar cycle will brighten your romantic affairs for the next four weeks. A flirty connection could morph into an exclusive relationship. You might decide to clean house of the summer flings and make room for someone with lasting potential. Already attached? Find creative ways to blend your energy, like recording a podcast or starting a small side business together as a couple. Sunday’s moon in your adventurous ninth house prompts you to take a calculated risk. It’s great that you’ve been so on top of the details, Pisces, but you can only plan so much. Now get out of your head and onto the court to play ball. It’s time to test how well those grand ideas work in real life. Remember: You can always adjust and learn as you go! See the full week >
