Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Some days, Aries, success lies in searching for the details instead of focusing on the big picture. Under Saturday’s moon in Virgo, get down to the nitty-gritty—with everything from your pedicure to your productivity. Are you really being as meticulous and efficient as you could be? With Neptune opposing la luna from your hazy twelfth house, others may try to distract you, so stay focused. You might even—gasp!—turn off all digital devices for an hour or two so you can tick things off your to-do list without having to deal with a friend’s hourly crises. On Sunday, you’ll have much more patience for “stupid human tricks” as the moon shifts into gentle Libra and activates your partnership house. In fact, someone’s irritating traits could become downright endearing—or outright attractive—before the weekend wraps. Intrigued? Available? Pursue! See the full week >

Taurus (March 21 – April 19)

You may feel like you’re walking around underwater on Saturday as the moon in your passionate, expressive fifth house goes head-to-head with psychic Neptune, planet of illusion and confusion, in your eleventh house of friends and group endeavors. Your initial instincts might not be at their sharpest, so don’t try to read anyone—especially if you have incomplete or one-sided information. You could embarrass yourself if you react without gathering all the facts. Before you speak, take the Buddhist path and ask yourself: Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind? Sunday’s stars turn your attention to more mundane matters, like straightening up Chateau Toro and prepping for the busy week ahead. But with the moon in artistic Libra, these pragmatic missions can also be pleasing. How about hanging a new art print in your tidied-up living room and shopping for some of your groceries in a lush, outdoor farmer’s market? Let yourself be guided by beauty. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Who is this drama mama, and how did she get inside of your head? This Saturday, your emotions could be twisting in the wind like Dorothy’s house on the way to Oz. You can blame it on a standoff between the emo moon in your emotional fourth house and Neptune, the planet of illusion and confusion, in your tenth house of career and social status. This is not the day to map out your yellow brick road to retirement. Long-term financial and career planning could result in a full-blown—and unnecessary—freak-out about your future. Let that wait today, and surrender (like Dorothy). There’s no place like home, so plan a Saturday night in—maybe with a home-cooked meal and an old Judy Garland movie! On Sunday, the moon heads into Libra and your celebratory fifth house, bringing some overdue fun into your weekend. Wander through an outdoor flea market or find out what (free) cultural activities are going on in the nearby parks. You’ll be in your element just flowing and flirting with strangers and enjoying a no-agenda day. See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

If life were a Golden Girls episode, you’d be channeling Rose Nylund this Saturday as the moon in your third house of communication faces off with Neptune, the planet of illusion, in your broad-minded ninth house. With your cynicism MIA, you’ll happily extend the benefit of the doubt, believing the best about everyone you meet. But don’t throw ALL judgment out the window. If something seems too good to be true, it likely is. This might not be the best day to sign anything—even a new phone service contract—until you’re certain you understand all the fine print. The moon heads into Libra on Sunday, parking in your domestic fourth house for two and a half days. Erase all guilt if you need to bail on brunch and just stay home to recharge. Or maybe you want to slip off to the beach with only your sunscreen and that paperback you’re devouring. Give yourself the space you need to recharge, and only socialize out of desire, not obligation. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Keep that chip card tucked away this Saturday. With no-limits Neptune opposing the moon across your financial axis, you might get hit with the urge to, uh, “spend it like Beckham.” (Victoria, that is). Those planets could be giving your glasses a decidedly rose-colored hue, so make sure you stop to question that fabulous pair of sandals before investing three paychecks. Tuck that money away for something more useful down the road, or a birthday present for yourself that will bring you joy for more than one season. With Sunday’s moon in social Libra, you’ll barely roll out of bed before your phone starts buzzing with invitations. FOMO is inevitable, but you can curb some of that fear by organizing a group hang. Keep it simple: a picnic in the park or a casual afternoon at a biergarten, come as you are and when you can. Bonus: Sparks could fly with a pal’s plus-one, or you could discover an exciting business synergy with someone you meet throughout the day. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Let yourself be queen for a day this Saturday as the moon in Virgo lights up your first house of self-adoration. It you’ve been feeling like all you do is contribute to other people’s projects while you neglect your own, today is the day to rewrite your priority list—and get to work. You may need to double down on your focus as Neptune fogs up your seventh house of partnerships, sending people to distract you from the task at hand. Be wary of offers to “help,” and heed the advice of Oprah, who said: “Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another stepping stone to greatness.” On Sunday, your mind will be on your money as the decadent Libra moon struts through your fiscally savvy second house. There’s never a shortage of ways to SPEND your hard-earned cash, but are you investing wisely? Just because an item is on sale doesn’t mean it belongs in your closet. Save up for the thing you really want instead of giving into a retail therapy impulse. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

With the Virgo moon gazing hazily into your twelfth house of the subconscious and intuition this Saturday, you may feel like staying in your pajamas all day and steadily working your way through a list of tasks you’ve been putting off. Obfuscating Neptune in your sixth house of service and work may have other plans, however, so be prepared for drama that could make it nearly impossible to focus. Take a minute to step back and assess the situation. Is getting involved worth your time and energy? If the answer is no, walk away. You’ll be glad you did this Sunday, when la luna shifts into Libra for two and a half days and resets your priorities. Time to strap on your own oxygen mask so you can be there to support others. What will it take to refill your tanks: a massage, a pedicure, a day spent reading on a poolside lounger? Give yourself that gift, and know that it’s also a present to the people in your world. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

So many people, so little time? With the Virgo moon afoot in your eleventh house of groups this Saturday, you don’t have to spread yourself thin to enjoy the ones you love. Organize a group hang and direct friends to a single destination. Be forewarned that the “big personalities” in the bunch will be vying for attention. Let them have it, Scorpio. Fighting for the spotlight isn’t worth it—and you’ll actually create more intrigue with your air of mystery. On Sunday, keep plans loose and flowing, or don’t make any at all! As the moon slips into Libra and your healing twelfth house, spend the day doing what feels restorative to you, whether it’s ice cream cones on the boardwalk, yin yoga or lounging at home with a paperback. Postpone get-togethers if you’re not feeling social. You’ll be amazed by the impact few hours of solitude can have on your mood. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

If you’ve been feeling like you’re working too hard and making too little headway, relief could come Saturday as the moon lands in productive Virgo and your tenth house of work and career. Enjoy the breakthrough, but don’t let yourself get distracted. Hazy Neptune is stirring up drama in your fourth house of home and family. Letting yourself get sucked into the hornet’s nest of family feuding will distract you from the important tasks you’re finally beginning to tackle. On Sunday, a collaborative approach helps you move the needle even further along. Is there a way to include your inner circle in your efforts? Close friends, or an interested relative, might be touched by an invitation to be part of your latest project. Don’t worry that you’re “burdening” them, Archer; nothing could be further from the truth! See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Facts are facts—but they don’t always need to be stated aloud. Make your observations, Capricorn, but reserve the right to remain silent. On Saturday, ultra-sensitive Neptune is opposing the moon in your outspoken ninth house. You could be tempted to tell your friend what you really think about her sci-fi bob or insert yourself in the middle of two feuding family members. Before you unleash, consider the drama that can ensue. Will it just wind up being a major distraction? You’ll have enough of those, so keep the focus on your own life and avoid the messy entanglements. On Sunday, you can’t be bothered with other people’s trifles. As the moon heads into Libra and your goal-driven tenth house, look ahead to the coming workweek and let your (not so) secret competitive side out to play. Ask yourself, What wins would I like to have before Wednesday? The, go deeper and ask: How can I include others in my victory? See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing slowly, at least this Saturday, when murky Neptune locks horns with the moon in your secretive eighth house. While you’re usually an open book, this is no time to lay all your cards on the table. Be a bit more mysterious, arousing intrigue. And if someone is being elusive, wait to start asking questions. Your lack of interest will give you the upper hand. On Sunday, when the moon heads into Libra and your candid ninth house, you’ll do a complete 180. You can’t stop yourself from living out loud, and friends will be thoroughly entertained by your incisive wit. But this moon calls for a LITTLE diplomacy, so don’t let your jokes hit too far below the belt or you could discover what it means to be “too honest.” If people solicit your opinion (and you can’t bring yourself to say anything kind), the best answer may be, “Well, what do YOU think?” See the full week >

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

If you weren’t required to consider anyone else’s desires, what would you choose for yourself? Spend time on Saturday tuning in to your wants…the ones that might be buried under a few layers of guilt or worry about what “the neighbors might think.” Then make some requests! It’s unlikely that you’ll hear a single “no” this Saturday, as your co-ruler, enchanting Neptune, trades friendly fire with the moon in your seventh house of partnerships. Of all the signs in the zodiac, a generous Pisces could afford to be a bit more demanding with the ones you adore. Just don’t swing to the opposite extreme and drive everyone crazy by custom-ordering EVERYTHING. On Sunday, the moon heads into Libra, and you’ll need to rebalance the give-and-take in an important relationship. Don’t make the mistake of trying to split everything down the middle. Instead, get clear about where each of your strengths lie. Then, give serious consideration to outsourcing that ONE thing that seems to be the source of too many arguments. See the full week >
