Aries (March 21 – April 19)

The muse is in the house! If you’ve got a song to sing, a story to tell or a declaration of love to proclaim, don’t keep it to yourself, Ram! Today, messenger Mercury takes over the DJ booth in your fifth house of creativity, fame and romance until August 19. Your star power is on the rise, and you owe it to yourself AND your fan base to get your work out there! Whether you’re single or otherwise engaged, this is a lovely two-week period to deepen a bond or bring more playful energy into your life. See the full week >

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

Where is the love? You can bury the hatchet with a friend or relative you’ve been on the outs with as communicator Mercury bolts into big-hearted Leo and your domestic fourth house. Between now and August 19, the messenger planet will help you find the perfect words to make things right. You don’t actually have to rehash the upsetting situation. Just let this person know how much you care about them and how sincerely you want your loving relationship back. Mean it, and they’ll feel it. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

There’s no time to waste on gossip or small talk starting today, Gemini. Your galactic guardian, articulate Mercury, blasts into Leo and your expressive third house, firing up your natural genius. Ideas come pouring in a mile a minute, and it’s all you can do to capture a handful. Keep a small notebook or recording app with you at all times. There could be gold in these brainstorms—literally. Who knows? All it takes is one million-dollar idea and a development team to make you the next celebrated influencer or digital mogul. See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Keep your mind on your money as mental Mercury beams into Leo and charges up your income-generating second house until August 19. During this practical, productive cycle, focus on the bottom line. With some ingenuity and elbow grease, you could turn one of your most promising ideas into a viable revenue stream. Social Mercury can help you network your way into a job opportunity. If you’re on the hunt for more gainful employment, see if friends or former coworkers know of any openings. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

The universe hands you the mic today as articulate Mercury marches into Leo and fires up your first house of self-expression until August 19. Now that you have people’s attention, how DO you want to sway the masses? Do you want to get a buzz going about a creative venture? Rally people around a cause that you’re personally connected with? During this cycle, important eyes will be on you. Make sure your outer style reflects the “you” that you want the world to take notice of. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Sometimes, Virgo, your inner critic can be the loudest voice in the chorus. So for the next two weeks, surround yourself with supportive people who mirror back your greatness. Until August 19, your ruler, rational Mercury, is free-falling through Leo and your murky twelfth house. Observe the conversations going on in your head. (Better yet, record them in your journal.) You may realize ways your thoughts influence events and outcomes. It might take some effort, but start training yourself to focus on the results you WANT to create instead of looking for all the things that could (but probably won’t) go wrong. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Let’s hear it for team spirit! Yours is naturally high, but starting today, when garrulous Mercury swings into your collaborative eleventh house, you’ll be a one-Libra cheering section. It’s easy for you to root-root-root for your friends and colleagues, but for the next two weeks, you can throw your prodigious energy into supporting one squad in particular. Since the eleventh house also rules humanitarian work and technology, help them find a wider audience on social media—and inspire them to see how their work helps others, if only indirectly. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Everyone could use a little updating and upgrading when it comes to their career, Scorpio, and your chance comes now! Messenger Mercury lands in regal Leo, guiding you to a new professional pinnacle by August 19. People do make snap judgments based on appearances, so make sure you are representing like a stylish, savvy pro. Even if you’re still in WFH mode, show up to Zoom meetings in something dressier. To get your online presence up to snuff, hire—or barter with—a copy editor and a graphic designer who can add the extra polish to make everything pop. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Mic drops: incoming! Today, communication planet Mercury jets into your spontaneous, candid ninth house, and you may be more explicit than ever! (Who knew that was even possible?) While honesty is the only policy you’ve ever known, there is such a thing as not dispensing the whole unvarnished truth. Diplomacy will go a long way from now until August 19, though it might be in short supply. Fire up that translation app! This worldly Mercury cycle could inspire you to start conversing in Japanese, Spanish or Swahili. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Your animal magnetism will be fiercer than ever as compelling Mercury slinks into your seductive eighth house starting today. You won’t have to work hard to draw people into your innermost sphere—but you might want to raise the eligibility requirements for entry. Single Sea Goats: Save your final rose for someone you connect with on multiple dimensions (as in mind, body and soul). Coupled Caps can go deep under this transit. What’s next for your relationship? These discussions could be your favorite form of pillow talk between now and August 19. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Ah, the paradox of being an Aquarius: You’re a full-on “people person” who also needs loads of alone time. But you’ll remember the power of pairing up starting today, when social Mercury beams into Leo and your seventh house of committed connections. Between now and August 19, you’ll be even more electrifying, and people will swarm to your sphere. If you’ve been carrying a disproportionate amount of the load yourself, you’ll appreciate a like-minded partner to share it with. This could be for work, a creative project or romance…and good on you if you can blend two of those! See the full week >

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Slow your roll, Pisces! Nimble Mercury has been zipping through your active fifth house for the past three weeks, but starting today, the messenger planet settles down in Leo and your sixth house of health and organization until August 19. The first lesson: Stop multitasking! Another thing to add into your day: regular breaks. It’s good for your body, your mind—and your stress levels. With clever Mercury here, it’s a great time to get tasks, projects and paperwork streamlined and systematized. See the full week >
