Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Get it done, Aries! This is an excellent day to highlight the top three items on your to-do list and turn your full attention to those. Log off social media, silence your devices—and go! With Mercury in Virgo and your industrious sixth house aligned with alchemical Pluto in your career corner, you’ll be unstoppable if you set up an environment that helps you focus. Today’s starmap gives you a keen eye, and you could spot something “tiny” that turns out to be a huge deal. Don’t overlook those all-important details in your quest for the brass ring.

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

You’re dialed in today, Taurus, so set your “healthy skepticism” aside long enough to tap some manifesting magic! With Mercury in Virgo and your creative corner synced up with alchemical Pluto in your mystical eighth house, you’ve got two aces up your sleeve. Slow down enough to tune in to those little intuitive “hits” you get, whether to message a certain person or turn down a random street. This is also a sizzling day for romance, so say yes to an intriguing invite or go out tonight and flirt like you mean it! See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

There’s no keeping the lid on your feelings today as your ruler, Mercury, aligns with alchemical Pluto in two of your most emotional houses. This intensity might take your rational side by surprise and leave you unsure how to express all that you’re experiencing (because as a Gemini, your natural instinct is to share this!). But that might be the point: to sit with what’s happening WITHOUT dissecting or discussing it. If that feels too difficult, pour your heart out to your journal—or a trustworthy, compassionate friend.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

If a relationship feels like it might be at the tipping point, today’s galvanizing mashup of Mercury in your expressive third house and transformational Pluto in your partnership realm could bring clarity. You may have a white-light realization that there’s absolutely no value in continuing to stuff down your feelings. If you’re prepared to walk away, then why NOT have a no-holds-barred talk? This might actually shock the other person into making the very changes you feel are needed. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Set distractions aside and focus! You can get a tremendous amount accomplished today—IF you can avoid multitasking or being pulled off-target. Under a rare and harmonious huddle between creative Mercury and penetrating Pluto in your work and money houses, you will be completely on your game. Use those working hours to your advantage and crunch some numbers or muscle through a project phase you’ve been putting off. After work, you’ll be back in fun-loving lion mode, so find a way to get your kicks, whether at home or a wine bar with outdoor seating. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Experiment by mixing things up today, Virgo. With Mercury (your ruler) in your sign forming a supportive angle to transformational Pluto in your creativity zone, it’s worth testing some new approaches with colleagues, clients and anyone who seems likely to put up opposition. The harder you push, the harder they’ll push back, so try a different tack, like asking their opinion on something before you offer yours (or give them any “marching orders”). When they feel heard, they might not be so combative. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You may be acting from an internally focused place rather than in your usual outgoing, team-spirited style. Today’s alignment of Mercury in your meditative twelfth house and alchemical Pluto in your fourth house of home and family could cause you to fixate on personal issues, but if you can use this energy to help you gain an objective perspective on a difficult topic, it may be worth “going there.” You’re the sign of the scales, Libra: If something needs rebalancing, this is a perfect day to tip ‘em.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Team up FTW! You might prefer to labor alone, convinced that if you want a job done right, you have to DIY, but you know the difference between a belief and fact, don’t you, Scorpio? Today’s supportive trine between the Mercury in your communal corner and your ruler, transformational Pluto, in your house of friends, siblings and neighbors might shine a light on THE perfect person to help you with a project. In fact, if you’re willing to suspend your disbelief, they can actually improve it! See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You work hard for your money, so it’s natural that you want to enjoy it! But today, as Mercury in your professional tenth house aligns with controlling Pluto in your financial sector, it could be an eye-opening experience to evaluate how much you’re earning each month versus how much you’re spending. If the latter amount far exceeds the former, it’s time to flip the script. This isn’t to say you have to constantly deny and deprive yourself, but you might need to redirect your cash flow.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

With Mercury in your visionary house aligned with penetrating Pluto in your sign today, you’re in blue-sky-thinking mode, Capricorn. To get the most bang for your buck, clear out those mind-numbing tasks early (or put ‘em off till tomorrow) and give yourself the time and space to let your imagination run off-leash. Bow out of interminable meetings; let long-winded people’s calls go to voicemail. Keep a journal with you or your notes app open so you can be sure to capture every random notion—some of which are sure to be winners! See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You might have to go undercover to pull off a major mission today. With Mercury synced up to alchemical Pluto in your most subterranean, intuitive houses, you should trust your instincts but not necessarily much else. People could be trying to advance their own agenda or acting like anything BUT team players. Since you won’t be able to call anyone out on anything under these cunning skies, do your thing quietly. As long as you’re acting for the collective greater good, this is perfectly justifiable. See the full week >

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

So much for the “lone Fish” routine today. You won’t be able to duck out of group discussions under today’s irresistibly magnetic mashup of Mercury and alchemical Pluto in two of your people houses. Recruiting for Team Pisces or trying to find one more person for your committee? Put the word out, and you may have more volunteers than you can possibly sift through. And since the Sun is in your partnership house, one of these new faces could turn out to be more than a platonic pal. See the full week >
