Aries Daily Horoscope by The AstroTwins

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Take a mental vacation this Saturday as the moon and Neptune sync up in your restful twelfth house. Yoga, meditation or just an early night will revive your weary soul. Tap into your emotions and intuition, which will be powerfully activated by this transit. Jot down any gut feelings or just free-write in a journal to connect with your core. You could also have vivid dreams that contain helpful messages and guidance. On Sunday, growth is on your mind as expansive Jupiter and the Sun team up to boost your confidence. But “bigger, stronger, faster” doesn’t necessarily mean better. If it’s sustainably sourced, ethically produced and good for the soul, then it has your name written all over it. Good karma has a way of coming back around. In this case, that might mean spending a little more in goods and materials or investing in quality over quantity. See the full week >

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

Let your hair down and go with the flow! Thanks to Saturday’s moon-Neptune connection in your collaboration zone, you’re more interested in getting other people’s input than you are in controlling every aspect of a plan. Drop your guard and ditch the formalities. Opening up will help you feel more deeply connected to the people in your life and enhance your sense of security. Just go easy on the partying and libations since foggy Neptune can make you lose track of your limits. On Sunday, the world is your oyster—pearl included! The Sun in your sign gets in a flowing formation (a trine) with worldly Jupiter. Treat yourself to an experience that will broaden your horizons and make you feel like a citizen of the world. You can watch a foreign film or do a Zoom session with a Chinese herbalist. Honesty is the best policy when it comes to your personal interactions, but warm people up with an icebreaker chat before you unleash your bolder feedback and opinions. See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

What do you want to do with your life? Under Saturday’s magnetic moon-Neptune meetup in your future-planning zone, spend some time imagining the possibilities. Picture it in as much detail as possible. While making a vision board may seem excessive, studies show that our brains actually respond to these things—just as they also respond to negative or limiting beliefs. So go ahead, choose your own adventure and start designing the life you want to attract. On Sunday there’s no telling where your intuition may lead you as wise Jupiter trines the Sun and sharpens your Spidey senses. Let cautious optimism be the guiding principle as you follow up on the “leads” that arrive as gut feelings. Wait until you have evidence to make any public proclamations or post on Instagram. And even then, these delicious discoveries might be enjoyed most with your inner circle only. A shared secret can be the ultimate bonding experience. See the full week >

Cancer Daily Horoscope

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Dream big, Cancer. On Saturday, the moon and imaginative Neptune meet in your ninth house of inspired visions and adventure. You could conjure up a long-distance opportunity just by picturing yourself in a faraway place! Your “journey” doesn’t have to involve boarding a plane, of course, but you CAN connect with someone living in another part of the world. You’re in a learning mood, so indulge your curiosity. Take a risk and do something out of the ordinary today. It’s easy to get excited when you stumble on a kindred spirit, Cancer, and Sunday’s Sun-Jupiter trine could bring a whole flock of them through your online searches. When you meet a crowd who shares common interests, engage! You don’t have to rush to divulge every personal detail or fill out the yearly membership application. Just enjoy the synergy and let things unfold naturally. If your positive hunch is right on with this bunch, you’ll become a card-carrying constituent soon enough. Make “inclusivity” the guiding principle of your day, and invite friends to join you for a virtual dance party or Zoom room brunch. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Tune in to your deeper emotions this Saturday, Leo. Your intuition could reach near-psychic levels, and your hunches should be correct. A moon-Neptune alignment in your karmic eighth house cranks up the coincidences. Consider it a nudge from the universe that you’re tapped in. Just as you think of someone, they text you a meme or email you about setting up a conference call. It could feel downright magical! Visualize what you want and watch it manifest! On Sunday, roll the dice on a career opportunity. With the Sun sweetly angled to lucky Jupiter, a calculated risk could pay major dividends. A friendly reminder: It takes money to make money. Paying for expert training, a better-looking website or software that makes WFH profitable, is cash wisely spent. This isn’t about gambling; it’s a matter of investing in your own growth. Go out of your way to connect with industry movers and shakers. One friendly DM could open the floodgates! See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Soften your stance, Virgo. On Saturday, the moon meets soothsayer Neptune in your relationship house, making it easier for you to be compassionate with a partner, colleague or friend. Rather than judge people, find common ground, or at least some empathy. Even if you can’t relate to what they’re going through, you can still give them room to be human. While you’re at it, grant yourself the same patience and understanding. We’re all just trying to do our best here! On Sunday, you need space to work your magic, but there might be too many cooks in the kitchen. Even the most well-meaning, eager assistant could fray your last nerve whether it’s a friend, your S.O or a family member. Before you snap, be honest about your desire for breathing room. After a few hours of independent exploration, you’ll emerge with something brilliant to show for it. Even then, keep the peanut gallery on mute. The last thing you need is a critique while you’re still in the early phase of a creative cycle. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Saturday’s moon-Neptune conjunction in your wellbeing house helps you feel more connected to your body’s movements, rhythms and needs. You could be inspired to make a healthy change. While you’ve done your share of fads, you prefer a lifestyle that keeps you glowing and has a deeper meaning behind it, like eating more plant-based food or shopping an ethically sourced clothing line that donates proceeds to a food bank. You have zero time for herding cats on Sunday, Libra—or lions or tigers or cheetahs, for that matter. Thanks to a sultry alignment of the Sun and expansive Jupiter, you’d rather go prowling with a partner in crime. Slip off with your favorite plus-one whenever you can—or meet up for a private FaceTime. Single Libras could magnetize a soulmate-grade prospect on the apps or through a text introduction made by mutual friends. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Saturday’s sizzling stars could sweep you up into a deeply romantic mood. The emotional moon and fantasy planet Neptune meet in Pisces, igniting your fifth house of passion. Plan a sensual date night at home with your S.O. If you’re single, you might try online speed dating or jump into a virtual dance party. Whatever the case, dress up and hand your flirty inner siren the reins. Since the fifth house rules fertility, a pregnancy (or news of one) is possible, or you might just stay in and give birth to a new creative project. On Sunday, a dynamic duo could emerge as the Sun pings broad-minded Jupiter in the most collaborative parts of your chart. Don’t be shy about initiating contact, whether you’re DM-ing a photographer whose work you’re obsessed with or swiping right on the apps. Thanks to this venturesome trine, the connection could heat up fast! See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Does your nest feel blessed…or stressed? Bring peace to your palace, Sag. This Saturday, the moon and compassionate Neptune meet in Pisces, your home and family zone. Enjoy some quality bonding time with loved ones. Even if it’s just a catch-up call, the time you spend connecting will soothe your soul. You might be inspired to soften up the decor in your house, adding spiritual or boho touches: a chandelier, a vintage treasure, accent pillows. Small shifts will go far in adding more sensuality to your space. On Sunday, keep your eye on the ball. If you want to knock it out of the park, a keen focus is required. Eliminate distractions until you’ve ticked all the crucial tasks off your list. Then figure out the best way to pitch, promote and present when relying on digital platforms for things you’d normally do face to face. A flowing trine between the Sun and your ruler, fearless Jupiter, will help you wow. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Psychic connection? The moon and receptive Neptune unite in your communication house this Saturday, making you an accidental mind reader. If you get an intuitive hit to call or text someone, reach out. A soul-stirring conversation could enrich your bond with a friend or sibling. Make an effort to be more accessible with colleagues, neighbors and casual acquaintances. Open up and get past the formalities. It feels good to come from the heart and really get to know people on a deeper level. On Sunday, lucky Jupiter in Scorpio sends a wink to the Sun in Taurus and your fifth house of love. Fortune favors the bold, so don’t deliberate or hesitate if you’re interested in someone. Coupled Caps should be the initiators. Sure, it’s always nice to be swept off your stilettos, but sometimes you have to wake up your partner and remind them that it’s officially time to re-enact the fairy tale fantasy. Use the element of surprise—and a dose of good humor—to woo. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

The intuitive moon and spiritual Neptune meet in your money sector Saturday. Want more prosperity or happiness with your job? Start with some creative visualization. While it may be hard to quiet your rational mind, what has skepticism ever gotten you but bitterness and a buzzkill? Allow yourself to ask the big question: What do I truly want? Forget how you “should” respond and just tune in to your desires. Under these stars, you’re a manifestation magnet. Ask, believe, receive! On Sunday, a house divided against itself will not stand. When the family feuds and in-fighting churn up, avoid taking sides. That doesn’t mean you have to stay neutral, though. Lean in to your leadership and direct everyone’s attention back to the higher purpose of your collective. Whether it’s love, a common career goal or a world-changing mission, a new focus is needed to nip the petty squabbles in the bud. That said, you don’t want to sidestep a genuine issue. Steer everyone toward proactive discussions—and pass around a talking stick to ensure no one is interrupted! See the full week >

Pisces Daily Horoscope

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Speak up for your beliefs! The moon and Neptune (your ruler) meet in Pisces this Saturday, making this a powerful moment to express yourself. Declaring your truth may not be easy, but it’s so much more satisfying than hiding your light. You have a lot to share with the world, so don’t worry about doing it in a “traditional” way. The more you add your own quirky stamp to things, the more enthusiastically people will respond. Sunday’s Sun-Jupiter trine could add a “benefits package” to one of your formerly platonic relationships. Another possibility? You could team up with a close friend or sibling on an exciting project. While your familiarity is a blessing, it can also be a curse if you are too casual about the details. To ensure long-term happiness and affinity, spell out a clear agreement for how you’ll divide up the duties AND the profits. See the full week >
