Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Career opportunities abound, but don’t shift into workaholic mode, Aries! Expansive Jupiter has been heating things up in your professional corner, yet on Saturday, the jovial planet aligns with balanced Mercury in your wellness sector. Whether you’re feeling it or not, too much work will stress your system, and you need a healthy outlet to burn it off. But instead of doing the same old workout, mix it up with more fun and challenging routines—perhaps a high-energy dance class or power yoga in the park? On Sunday, you’re feeling large and in charge, but be careful not to overstep your authority. With alchemical Pluto touring your career corner, you’re hellbent on reinventing yourself in the image you desire, but today, the dramatic dwarf planet opposes harmonizing Venus in your personal zone. You may need to back down from an unflinching demand or be prepared to compromise on what just yesterday was a non-negotiable point. Don’t see this as defeat but, rather, a lesson in diplomacy.

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

Love and adventure are the themes of your Saturday, thanks to a rosy merger of expansive Jupiter in your travel zone and ardent Mercury in your fifth house of romance. Been crushing on someone in secret? Seriously, best-case scenario, where’s that going to get you? Out with it, Taurus. Even if the attraction isn’t reciprocal, at least you’ll know and can move on to someone who’ll return your feelings. The bubbling bond may be more business than pleasure. Prime the pump for future conversations by sharing a link or openly expressing your admiration. Rethink any plans to hang out at home on Sunday. Your ruler, culture vulture Venus, is lighting up your third house of communication and local happenings—and she’s entangled with intensifier Pluto in your footloose and adventurous ninth house. A little online sleuthing is sure to reveal a live performance in the park or an outdoor gathering with people who share your more offbeat interests. Grab your most festive mask and be ready to say yes to all proposals! See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Come out of your cave—or your work silo—and mingle with the masses, Gemini! Or at least with that special friend you haven’t seen in way too long. Carve out some time on Saturday to send a few texts and relink with the people who always make you happy. With Mercury pinging expansive Jupiter in your emotional zones, this will do you more good than a hot-stone massage! Even if your evening together is via FaceTime or WhatsApp, it’s infinitely better than NOT talking! On Sunday, stay open to sudden attractions to people who are not remotely your usual type. Venus in tender Cancer forms a 180-degree angle to smoldering Pluto in your seductive eighth house, proving that opposites do attract. But don’t try to accelerate from zero to 100 in five seconds! Allure is one thing, but if this is going to last more than 12 hours, advance strategically. Attached? If you want bae’s undivided attention, head to a neutral location. Wander around and see what you discover together. Once you’re both feeling relaxed and connected, it will be safe to open up about something you’ve been scared to tell your S.O. See the full week >

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

It’s more important to get your message out there than it is to waste time polishing it to an unnecessarily high gloss. Saturday’s timing is perfect for connecting your head and heart and letting whatever you have to say rip. A congruous concord between Mercury and candid Jupiter lines your tongue with silver AND bestows a hefty dose of diplomacy. Speak up while the iron’s hot, whether to a colleague, sibling or your amour du jour. With romantic and beautifying Venus lighting up your sign all weekend, you almost can’t do enough to make yourself feel attractive, healthy and well cared for. Book a hair appointment, perhaps doing something a little edgier to flash your bold spirit. But note that on Sunday, the love planet clashes with controlling Pluto in your partnership house. A romantic interest may be jealous or insecure about all the attention you attract. Depending on how that makes you feel, either cut them some slack—or cut ‘em loose! See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Less is definitely more on Saturday, Leo, so take a minimalist’s delight in keeping it simple. Tempted to buy a big blooming bouquet? How about getting one perfect rose and placing it in an antique bottle? With Mercury in your practical second house forming a harmonious trine with Jupiter in your streamlined sixth, you’ll feel calmer in simple settings. This is also a good day to get something out in the open with your sweetie or current crush. Set aside your anxiety and speak from the heart. Your ingenuity may hit a new high on Sunday, but is it appropriate for all audiences? There’s a lot to be said for free-range imagination, but under the day’s rein-it-in skies, you need to honor the devil that’s in the details. With Venus in emo Cancer and your visionary twelfth house, you’re tapping into another dimension. Yet a reality-checking opposition from demanding Pluto in your practicality sector needs to know this is doable. Map it out as best you can, but let the naysayers know you’re still in “R+D” mode. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Prepared to do a little gambling in the game of love, Leo? Saturday could be your lucky day, with optimistic Jupiter in your risk-taking corner aligned with Mercury in your sign. You can’t win if you don’t play, but do keep your head. With Jupiter here, it’ll be easy to get carried away with your emotions or inflate someone else’s reactions. But it’s also the planet of honesty, so if all else fails, just come right out and let this person know how you feel! Squad goals take precedence over personal ambitions on Sunday, but make sure you know where your line in the sand is, Virgo. Your service-oriented sign is happy to pitch in for the team’s sake or “mop up” another’s mess. But as agreeable Venus in your community zone clashes with controlling Pluto, your vision and someone else’s might be wildly out of sync. Stop before you jump into the action, and make sure you’re not compromising your good name for a sketchy mission. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Your soft side may be mushier than usual today, thanks to a combo of thoughtful Mercury in your intuitive twelfth house and boundless Jupiter in your domestic zone. Just listening to people’s stories could unleash the waterworks, so keep the tissues handy. It’s a good time to connect on a deep level with your closest friends since your heart will be open—and you might need a little support of the female variety. Don’t be afraid to open up: Trust is your best medicine! You could spend Sunday crushing an important project, but there may be a torrent of interruptions if you don’t head ‘em off at the pass. Change your thoughts to release stress, and you’ll feel the benefits! With your ruler, efficient Venus, live-streaming in your career house, you’re in a creative and productive groove. But an SOS from demanding Pluto in your domestic quarters could drive you to distraction. Don’t wait for fires to break out to put them out; think of what MIGHT come up ahead of time and do everything you can to prevent it from happening in the first place. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Tough love? You couldn’t dish that out if you tried this Saturday, Scorpio! A soulful sync-up of thoughtful Mercury in your social zone and expansive Jupiter is more likely to set off a tidal wave of unconditional love. If you’re just getting to know someone or a group, leave the emotional armor at home and “go commando.” Kick around ideas for creative collaborations and see where the synergies lead. If you’re single—and looking to change that status—bear in mind that true love could start with a solid friendship. Sunday brings an interesting challenge. That person who’s been annoying the heck out of you? Take a closer look at what they might symbolize or trigger from your past. An opposition of tactful Venus and your ruler, metaphysical Pluto, in your wisdom zones could be dropping some major clues about what you stand to learn about yourself if you stop seeing them as an “enemy” and view them as a reflection of your own shadow side. We all have things we’d rather not face. Their message might be “time’s up” on that score. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Need to have a frank conversation about money? With communicator Mercury in your career corner sweetly aligned with expansive Jupiter in your financial sector, you’ll have cosmic wind in your sails. If you need to post about a special offer or cold-call someone, just screw up your nerve and do it. With Mercury so well positioned in your chart, you’ll have the power to charm anyone. And thanks to the auspicious placement of Jupiter, you’ll be delightfully fearless. Where others see obstacles, you sense opportunity! On Sunday, you might find yourself in serious “approach-avoidance” mode as amorous Venus in your erotic eighth house opposes Pluto, lord of the dangerous liaison. A dubious attraction may be hard to resist, begging two questions: Why risk it? And, why NOT risk it? You have free will on this one, Archer, but don’t get carried away. This may be wildly hot in the moment, but here’s the most important question of all: How will you feel in two days if this seductive prospect ghosts? See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

What are you looking for, Cap? All the answers you seek are out there! But if you’re only searching in a tiny area, you may not find them. Today, Mercury is hovering in your global ninth house AND harmonizing with limitless Jupiter in your sign. Widen your viewfinder, expand your search parameters, think so far outside the box you forget that boxes ever existed! This may involve literal travel or the figurative kind—e.g., found in the spiritual or digital universe. Under Sunday’s confusing opposition of love planet Venus and controlling Pluto in your “me and us” houses, you might act a bit too authoritarian with a loved one. Ouch! You can go a long way toward keeping partnerships in balance if you give as good as you get. And if your beloved turns down one of your requests, try not to take it personally. They ARE entitled to their preferences! See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You know that speech you’ve been rehearsing in your head (and your dreams) ad nauseam? Well, Saturday’s starmap may finally pull it out of your brain, through your mouth and into the world! You’ve been keeping things light with your wicked sense of humor, but if you’re seeking intimacy, you need to allow yourself to be a little vulnerable. The good news is that on Saturday, as Mercury and lucky Jupiter align in your sensitive houses, you’ll feel supported to take a leap of faith. Pick the perfect setting, whether that’s a quiet corner booth or your own kitchen table. On Sunday, however, don’t be tempted by the things you can’t—or shouldn’t—have, Water Bearer. Granted, forbidden fruit might taste the sweetest, but the remorse you feel after the fact isn’t worth the gorge-fest. Of course, with sensual Venus entangled with shadowy Pluto in your subterranean zone, resistance might prove futile. Whatever you decide to do, your one non-negotiable should be that you don’t take any risks when it comes to your health. Prioritize safety even if you play with a little bit of fire.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

While you want to make a good first impression (because you might not get a second chance), remember that appearances can be deceiving. Love is definitely in the air as confident Jupiter mashes up with Mercury in your partnership house. But are you holding yourself back by obsessing on your physicality and not putting enough trust in your adorably effervescent self? See for yourself what happens when you make eye contact and ask a question that pierces the surface straight away. On Sunday, manipulative Pluto in your collaborative eleventh house is facing off with amicable Venus. You’re not one to rock the boat, but if someone is steering your team in a patently wrong direction, it’s your duty as a crew member to say something before it’s too late. Don’t worry what this person will think of you, Pisces. If you’re not comfortable being the lone voice of dissent, talk to your colleagues privately and see who else is feeling like you do. There’s strength in numbers, so tap it! See the full week >
