Aries (March 21 – April 19)
On Saturday, your mind might veer toward work, but rein it in! As Venus connects to powerful Pluto in your career zone, focus on the interpersonal relationships that make your job meaningful. You don’t have to talk shop; just connect on a personal level. You may sense some power dynamics while you’re moving through the day—but instead of feeling competitive, you might actually find them sexy! Play with moving through different roles in your relationships. If you always take the lead, let someone else plan the day or vice versa. On Sunday, a little constructive criticism could significantly improve a project, but be selective when sharing your work. You want expert opinions, not unhelpful assessments from people who don’t understand the nuances of your industry or expertise. By the same token, don’t just run to “yes men” who will blindly praise your efforts. Get the perspectives of people who will tell you what they honestly think and aim for diverse input. Just remember, you don’t have to take EVERY note you’re given. After all is said and done, thank your valued advisers. A gift card or lunch date (on you, of course) could be the perfect way to express your gratitude. See the full week >
Taurus (April 20- May 20)
If you have something to say, suppress it in this Saturday—but DO choose an optimal time and place for your candid conversation. As Venus aligns with probing Pluto in your philosophical, truth-telling ninth house, real talk could be a strong bonding agent if you wield its power judiciously. First of all, choose a private location. Second of all, adjust your hardcore expectations. Relationships ebb and flow, even if YOU wish things just stayed fixed instead of fluctuating. While it’s great to point out areas of improvement this weekend, set a goal of making your point without putting people you love on the defensive. On Sunday, don’t let a “no” get you down. It’s never fun when things don’t go as planned, but instead of throwing yourself a pity party, dive right into some personal projects. Could a strategic revision help you elevate a creative pursuit? This roadblock could actually turn out to be a blessing, and a better option could be right around the corner. Make some improvements to your efforts and get back out there! See the full week >
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
There’s no doubt about it, Gemini: You’re especially tuned in to subtle signs and synchronicities on Saturday. Thank Venus and penetrating Pluto, who are side-by-side in your metaphysical zone. The universe is sending you encoded messages, but if you try to use “logic” to translate, you’ll fall short. Get a little lost in your dream state, in nature or a creative pursuit. It will all make sense soon enough, but for now, just record the serendipities. Sunday’s directive: Follow your bliss! As the Gemini moon soars through your first house of self-expression, put in some extra hours on a passion project. You could have a creative breakthrough. When it comes to close relationships, be honest about your needs. If there’s something lacking in your dynamic with a loved one, speak up! It might be a little awkward at first, but a heartfelt discussion will ultimately deepen your bond. Emotional honesty is the best policy, Gem! See the full week >
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Unless you feel completely comfortable sharing with a group this Saturday, don’t force it. Instead, be true to your intimate nature as vixen Venus hooks up with intensifier Pluto in your partnership zone. A one-on-one could bring soulful bonding over brunch. And THAT has the potential to evolve into breakfast in bed on Sunday if there be sparks! If you’re in an LTR, clear the decks and make this a day to reconnect on a loving yet playful level. Single? A friend of a friend might exhibit “creative collaborator” potential. If the feeling seems mutual, strike up a convo! Be wary of untrustworthy characters on Sunday as the moon hovers in your mysterious twelfth house. Not everyone knows how to keep a secret, even if they pinky-swear that they do! If they’ve already drawn you into a web of gossip, that’s a pretty clear sign that they’re a high-risk blabbermouth. Beware the enticing lure of bonding over a common enemy and mistaking that connection for legit friendship. See the full week >
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Saturday is a great day to get up early and put the finishing touches on a work project. With so few distractions, you’ll sail through it—AND be extra inspired. It doesn’t hurt that aesthetic Venus is aligned with strategic Pluto in your sixth house of organization, work and service. Yes, you could get a little obsessive, but the end result will be well worth it. (Please post a #shelfie.) A well-connected friend could offer to pitch in. Accept, but be crystal-clear about what support you do—and don’t—need. TBH, you don’t want anyone encroaching on something you feel is YOUR territory. Sunday’s moon in Gemini lightens the weekend vibes significantly. Take it upon yourself to break through any unspoken tension and get the connective synergy flowing. Pro tip: Try a little (more) tenderness. See the full week >
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Rolling in the deep is where we’ll find you this Saturday as penetrating Pluto makes eyes at Venus in your passionate fifth house. Let yourself fall in a little (more) in love. You don’t have to drop ALL of your defenses, but do test the waters by communicating with more vulnerability. If Cupid fails to swing by, that’s just fine! Get immersed in a creative project, whether you’re the one making art or appreciating it—or both! You’ve got an unexpectedly productive Sunday ahead of you, which will help you make up for lost time. Ride the cosmic wave of efficiency as the moon soars through your goal-getting tenth house. Instagram can wait—you’ve got work to do! Chug that matcha latte and dive into your most ambitious assignments. With a little extra elbow grease, you could make major progress. Tackling a really big mission? Hunkering down at home is the best way to avoid getting sidetracked. Find a quiet place and hustle in peace. You need to protect these precious moments of being in the flow! See the full week >
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Wallpaper, window treatment or a new set of wine glasses: Whatever’s on your domestic punch list, you’ll be in the mood for serious nesting under Saturday’s Venus-Pluto mashup. With this aesthetic energy penetrating your fourth house of roots, you could transform something major at Chateau Libra. If it’s not WHAT’S under your roof, it might be WHO. Is it time to find a roommate or lose the one who’s been cramping your style? Family bonding time goes deep, so gather with your nearest and dearest. Dream into your most ambitious aspirations on Sunday as the moon lights up your ninth house of expansion and inspiration. What’s the overarching vision, Libra? Think big-picture: Is the overall concept for this project solid, or does it need a few tweaks? Make any necessary revisions before powering forward. The ninth house also boosts academic efforts, so explore opportunities to expand your mind. From conversational Japanese to yoga teacher training, start dabbling and see where curiosity leads you!
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Dare yourself to open up this Saturday—and be the first one to do it—as your ruler, private Pluto, nuzzles the moon in your communication sector. We’re not suggesting you broadcast unresolved business on social media. (Perish the thought!) Just steer your conversations in a more personal direction. Feeling the lust? Turning up your seductive powers can get a percolating attraction going strong. It requires vulnerability, Scorpio, but that’s preferable to playing guessing games. When a friend entrusts you with confidential information this Sunday, guard those secrets like they’re your own! With the moon in Gemini, however, you’ll have to be vigilant about what slips from your lips. Think twice when a casual acquaintance starts a sentence with “Do you swear you won’t tell anyone this?” Tempting offer, but accepting the invite to their tea party could make you accomplice to drama. Change the subject swiftly and excuse yourself from conversations that are heading in a nefarious direction. See the full week >
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
On Saturday, take care of the piled-up errands you keep putting off. That mountain of laundry isn’t going to put itself on spin cycle, Sagittarius, and your taxes aren’t going to do themselves. But here’s the good news: With decadent Venus and hyper-focused Pluto synced up in your house of practical magic, you can plow through those tasks pleasurably and proficiently. Light a scented candle, listen to podcasts—and even wear something fun and flowy—to make the experience sensual. Sunday is all about celebrating your favorite people as the Gemini moon dances into your partnership house. This variety-loving vibe is perfect for checking in with your tribe or just one special someone—perhaps initiating a sexy conversation like a shameless Sag. Already attached? Abandon your Netflix queue for some time in the fresh air, whether you’re gardening or taking a long walk. See the full week >
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Should you wear your heart on your sleeve or reveal it strategically? Amorous Venus has a date with private, passionate Pluto in your sign, spicing up your Saturday. You know what you want, and it’s entirely possible that the only thing preventing you from getting it is your fear of being the pursuer. While this is no time to play the lad- or lady-in-waiting, you don’t want to overwhelm people by being TOO direct. Invite the object of your affections into your world and show them more of who you are. You might have to sweat some small stuff on Sunday, when the detail-driven Gemini moon invades your persnickety sixth house. Impose a temporary social-media ban while you dive into your to-do list. Small tweaks could make a major difference. Apply some serious shine to get a project polished and ready to present next week. Your extra effort won’t go unnoticed! See the full week >
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
A chill Saturday is just what the cosmos ordered as Venus harmonizes with deep-diving Pluto in your introspective twelfth house. At the very least, keep your schedule as open as possible for puttering around the house. While certain obligations can’t be avoided, don’t push yourself to do anything your heart isn’t into. The most “energizing” thing you could be in the mood for is a long, guided meditation, working on an art project or getting started on your garden. Sunday’s mood is far more outgoing as the Gemini moon swings into your passionate, attention-loving fifth house. Invite a friend over to watch movies or have your Instagram spouse take new photos for your feeds. Regardless of where you land, your confidence turns heads. This could be your cue to revamp the boudoir with sexier bedding or colorful light bulbs that set the mood. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
If you start looking at a friend through a more romantic lens this Saturday, don’t be surprised. As intensifier Pluto makes eyes at vixen Venus, you’re ready and willing to experiment. Tread lightly, though! What seems like a good idea under this seductive starmap could pull you into something deeper and more complex than what you originally intended. Rule of thumb: Don’t play with fire unless you’re willing to stick around and tend to the blazes. Your nurturing nature takes the wheel under Sunday’s Gemini moon. Check in with your relatives and “chosen family,” especially if someone’s been on your mind for a few days. But reserve some of that TLC for yourself, Pisces. A few solitary hours will be restorative. Take a long nap and get to work on a household project that falls more in the “enjoyable” category than the “mandatory” one. See the full week >
