Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Today, perform obvious acts of kindness as Mercury in your sixth house of service links arms with the moon. If you have an opportunity to model best practices—not to mention kindhearted and ethical behavior—do! The feel-good impact goes beyond just helping people; you could create a positive paradigm shift among friends and community. See the full week >

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

Weekend travel is on your mind today and, despite restrictions, the journey could be epic! With Mercury shooting a flirty beam at the moon, your meanderings can serve up a side of romance. If you don’t fall head over statement sandals for, say, the hot proprietor of an antique bookstore you wander into, you could swoon for a new zip code. Hello, home away from home?

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Familiar faces will be your preference today as the moon huddles with Mercury in your intimate fourth house. Pay a visit to your parents or invite a few close friends over for some socially distanced crafting this evening—or craft cocktails! Keep plans loose, however, as you may want to putter around without an agenda, cooking, watching movies and working on random projects. It’s a totally valid prerogative! See the full week >

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Don’t let expectations linger in your space today. With expressive Mercury in your communication zone pinging the moon, you’ll find it easier than ever to discuss “difficult” topics. While you want to be direct about your feelings, lead with curiosity and find out what the other person is REALLY thinking before you assume. Spoiler alert: You’re probably going to be surprised.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Today, Mercury, the planet of communication, dances into alignment with the moon, ringing a gentle reminder alarm about those errands you’ve been blowing off. Bring your social spirit to these missions. Maybe a friend needs to make a grocery run, too—and how about stopping at the farmer’s market together for some of your produce? Or cue up an audiobook while you’re ticking items off your list that don’t require intense focus. You could have an illuminating perspective shift about a relationship before you’ve finished folding that basket of laundry. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Make today’s mission tending to your personal “branding” as messenger Mercury (in Virgo) plays image consultant alongside the moon. Polish up online pages and profiles. In some cases, less may be more, so take down extraneous posts or images that don’t reflect the message you want to send out to the world. If your summer-to-fall wardrobe is heavier on the shabby than the chic (or a bit too glam for 2020’s WFH comfort), make a list of pieces you’d like to take off the hangers over the coming days.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

With project-obsessed Mercury stepping into the zone today, you’ll be inspired to tackle some domestic duties. Roll up your sleeves, and there could be some big changes at Chateau Libra before the weekend hits. Just be sure to make a project plan before you swing any hammers so you don’t bite off more than you can legitimately chew. With the moon in your friends and family zone, you’ll have no trouble enlisting support—especially sweeten the invitation by offering to treat for dinner. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

With convivial Mercury connecting to la luna today, branch out a bit in the friend department. Cultivate a cross-cultural connection or get involved in a dialogue you might normally observe from a distance. If you have something to say, don’t hold back. Your voice can shift the conversation in a powerful way and get everyone thinking outside of the box. You might just find a BFF-grade kindred spirit who wants to partner up on a project with you this fall. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

The social vibes breeze into your Friday as Mercury trines the moon, but be more strategic about the company you keep. With your professional sectors lit, money moves are on your mind—and you’re in a good position to move the needle in an abundant direction. Ping a prospective collaborator to set up a discovery call, even if the first spot on their calendar isn’t for a couple weeks. That just gives you extra time to research and prep! Who’s in the office today? Take the initiative, leaning into your spontaneous nature. You could wind up talking projects (and profits) over lunch. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Messenger Mercury gives the moon some love from your daringly expansive ninth house today. Opportunity may pull you into new terrain, and possibly the public eye. Jitters aside, you are so ready for this. Step out and shine! Still earning your bragging rights? Let yourself be the little fish in the big pond. Awkward as it can feel, hustling alongside the industry captains (even if you’re doing the grunt work) will pave the way for growth. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Mercury in your private eighth house could reveal a solid secret keeper and, quite possibly, a mentor who’s already slain the dragons you’re battling today. Feeling strong? Don’t race to take the lead. Play “Best Supporting Actor” instead. You’ll make a bigger difference from behind the scenes than front and center today. Just don’t keep your cards TOO close to your vest once you’ve established a connection. Frame your conversations and let people know what you want from them or what you’d like to co-create. See the full week >

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Who are the people in your neighborhood? And how about the ones who have something insightful to share in a friend’s comments thread? You might not be a card-carrying member of a new crew today, but they’ll inspire you to think outside the box a bit more. Should one person stand out in the crowd to you, let them know. Tagging them in a post or DM-ing them could open the doors to a more personal connection. With Mercury parked in your partnership house, making a sweet angle to la luna today, an “odd couple” mashup could reveal strong dynamic duo potential. See the full week >
