Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Are your heartstrings getting achy from too many tugs? With today’s tense square between compassionate Venus in Cancer and assertive Mars in Aries, you may have to dish out some tough love. If you don’t speak up for yourself, who will? The truth: You may be afraid that if you open your mouth, your message will come out TOO strong (#AriesProblems). Your instincts could be correct, so assess before you address. It can help to recruit a wise but neutral friend as your sounding board and editor. Of course, it’s a totally different story when people actually ASK for your input. In moments like these, unleash… gently. See the full week >

Taurus (April 20- May 20)

What do people actually want from you, Taurus? Good luck figuring THAT out under today’s confounding Venus-Mars square. If someone in your circle has been acting passive-aggressive or shady, you won’t be able to bite your tongue. But with combative Mars in the mix, it might be best to avoid the disruptor until cooler heads prevail. This cosmic aspect could reveal disturbing news that’s been hidden from you until now. Just get the facts before you sound off. Nothing is totally transparent, but once you fling an accusation, you can’t take it back! See the full week >

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Are you seeking stability or craving greater freedom? A celestial shoving match between Venus and Mars sends you in both directions today. Gentle Venus votes for security while aggressive Mars gives you a wicked case of emotional wanderlust. If you’re in a steady job or relationship, avoid doing anything rash—even if it seems exciting to shake up the status quo. And if you’re feeling ungrounded, don’t impulsively sign on to something so steady that it stifles your independence. Balance is the key. See the full week >

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Under pressure? Today, a tough Venus-Mars square might make it hard to relax and find your groove. You may also be feeling stressed by a relationship, especially if someone is issuing ultimatums—or stringing you along. You’ll resent either of these situations and could reach a breaking point. Don’t play hard to get, Cancer—even if you’re afraid your honesty will hurt someone’s feelings. If people are meant to be in your life, they’ll have to deal with the REAL you. See the full week >

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Mixed signals alert! Today’s head-tripping square between Venus and Mars—the cosmic lovers—could incite some bizarre and passive-aggressive behavior. Attempts to be direct might unintentionally bruise feelings. While your sign prefers to lay it all on the table, that approach won’t work in your favor this time. Against your own preferences, you may need to sugarcoat your honesty with extra kindness. If you can’t bring yourself to do that, save these convos for another day. See the full week >

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Are feelings moving too fast? Today’s tense square between lusty Mars and gentle Venus might get you in over your head. A casual fling or an online dalliance could veer into obsessive terrain, even though you barely know each other. Coupled? The emerald-eyed monster may pay a visit. Curb the urge to snoop, unless you have legitimate cause to be suspicious—and even then, think twice. Rivalries could also flare with your friends and colleagues. Channel it into healthy competition—or try to resolve your issues and work together. See the full week >

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

So, uh, where is this thing going? Today’s intense Venus-Mars square could fuel the friction in a key relationship. You may not see eye-to-eye on what you both want for the long haul. Perhaps you’ve been avoiding that topic altogether in hopes that it would just “work itself out” over time. The stars could force your hand, inciting a difficult but necessary talk about the future of a business or romantic partnership. Whether or not you like what you hear, at least you’ll finally find out where everyone stands. See the full week >

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Come on down from that cloud, Scorpio. Your romantic reveries could be interrupted by a harsh reality check thanks to today’s stressful Venus-Mars square. If you’ve been viewing a friend or lover through rose-colored glasses, you might start to notice some unsavory traits—or that this person is an actual human being. Can you make room for that? On the flip side, if you’ve been nitpicky and overly critical, this square puts your controlling side in check. Adopt a “live and let live” policy—as best as you can. See the full week >

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You enjoy a little drama, Sag, but today’s stressful square between love planets Venus and Mars could dish up more than you bargained for. Jealousy and power struggles can interrupt your blissful bonding. Try not to fan those flames. Your attempts to turn heads could backfire, too. No matter how amazing you are, you-know-who still isn’t giving you the time of day. Dial it down instead of trying so hard—and open yourself up to more attentive people. See the full week >

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Incoming Klingons! Today, a tricky Venus-Mars square could turn “nice” into “needy” in the blink of an eye. Have you created a monster by lavishing excessive praise on an insecure person? Maybe you’re the one who’s become dependent on a narcissist’s approval. This cosmic clash issues a harsh reality check: True self-esteem can ONLY come from within. Pulling back can be painful, but that’s temporary—and also, the fastest way to get back to your grounded, centered self. See the full week >

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Picky, picky! Today’s skies serve a stressful square between aggressive Mars and Venus. If you’ve been biting your tongue about what bothers you, it could all come rushing out in an angry or critical tirade. Instead of shredding someone’s dignity, find a way to diplomatically voice your complaints. Even better: Journal it out or talk it through with a neutral party, then wait 48 hours. The conversation will probably be less of a confrontation then. See the full week >

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Assertive or aggressive? A tense square between Venus and Mars could decrease the peace today. While you may need to stick up for yourself, don’t shoot down other people’s ideas in the process. On the flip side, someone’s blustery ego could derail your own confidence. Since negotiating with a bully is basically a waste of time, peace out and do your own thing! Once you get going, you’ll realize that you never actually needed that domineering person in your life—or, in some cases, that your insistence on having things “just so” was the cause behind this clash.
