Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Let’s talk about “us,” shall we? Starting Saturday, communicator Mercury settles into your seventh house of partnerships until September 27. While you’re usually the maverick in the crowd, Aries, you’re eager to pair up now. Seize the moment: Brainstorm with a business partner or strategize with a creative collaborator. Romantic relationships also figure prominently during this cycle, and commitments deepen. Coupled? You’ll crave more conversation with your sweetie. You’ve got plenty to say, Ram, so why don’t you start? Then, on Sunday, Venus grooves into Leo and your flirtatious, flamboyant fifth house until October 2, sparking a romantic renaissance. Fierce Rams always make necks swivel, but starting this weekend, take it one step further. The connection could just as easily evolve into a creative collaboration as it could an autumn romance…or maybe a hybrid of both. Attached? This fertile phase could bring baby-making plans to the fore, or you could mark another milestone like getting engaged or embarking on another “first” as a couple. See the full week >
Taurus (April 20- May 20)
Break out the boxing gloves, yoga mat and cold press juicer.

It won’t be hard to map out a plan that works with your lifestyle. And thanks to Mercury’s social influence, friends may happily join you in this feel-better mission. If energy is lagging, you might be suffering from a food sensitivity or nutritional deficiency. Schedule an appointment to get your blood levels checked. Sleep in this Sunday—and see who might be willing to serve you a lavish breakfast in bed. Your ruler, decadent Venus, floats into your fourth house of home, where it will envelop you like a warm hug until October 2. As a nurturing Taurus, you live to create a cozy environment, filled with beauty, art and luxury. When inspiration invariably strikes this weekend, get the Pinterest boards started.

Let your flamboyant side out to play starting Saturday as your planetary ruler, expressive Mercury, flits into Libra and fires up your passionate fifth house.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Compassion and communication go hand-in-hand as expressive Mercury shifts into Libra and nests in your sentimental fourth house from this Saturday until September 27. Few things will feel better than nurturing your closest bonds. But if a housemate’s messy piles or loud music are irritating you, don’t gloss over important “boundaries” conversations. Does your home look like a storm blew through it? Savvy Mercury can restore order to your court and help you come up with chic storage systems. Value-driven Venus leaves your sign on Sunday (sigh), but moves on to Leo and your second house of finances and luxury until October 2. The hard work you’ve put into pitching clients and writing proposals could soon pay off—or you’ll get a burst of motivation to refill your contact database with important names. Stay on top of your income with a budget that allows for plenty of savings even as you earmark some funds for a few decor splurges. Surrounding yourself with beauty (Venus’ zone of genius) will make going into work (or WFH) much more appealing. See the full week >
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You’ll be quite the loquacious Leo for the next three weeks as mouthy Mercury breezes into Libra and fires up your communication zone until September 27. If you’re looking for your social fix, you probably won’t have to wander too far from your own front door. But if you’re craving a move, this is your cue to start checking out new zip codes—even if you’re just commuting in part-time. Siblings and old friends may be your favorite companions during this cycle. A cool neighbor could become a legit friend as you find new ways to support each other (or your community) through the pandemic. On Sunday, glamorous Venus sweeps into Leo for her annual visit, which lasts until October 2. During this charmed cycle, your Instagram posts could stack up the likes, your art could win a prize—and your entrance WILL be noted everywhere. This is a fine time for starting a buzz. With the radiant planet in your corner, you could draw a bigger fanbase than anticipated. Let the world know what you stand for and get ready to put your best self forward to make that vision come to life. See the full week >
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Budgeting, saving and planning: This trifecta takes center stage starting this Saturday as mental Mercury (your cosmic ruler) zooms through Libra. With the savvy planet powering up your second house of money until September 27, tighten your purse strings. That’s how you’ll save up for meaningful purchases instead of random grabs. You could find greater fulfillment from your work now, either by connecting with colleagues or searching for a job that’s a better fit for your personality. But there’s still plenty of fantasy-fueled energy to lean in to. On Sunday, glamorous Venus lands in Leo, floating through your dreamy, spiritual twelfth house until October 2. When it comes to love, you want to be swept away. But know this: There’s a propensity to rock the rose-colored glasses during this romantic cycle. Before your internal alarm is tripped, you could fall into a situationship and get in way over your head. Stay alert, Virgo—and if you don’t get a trustworthy vibe, keep your distance and observe.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Live out loud, Libra! This Saturday, communication planet Mercury zips into your sign for its annual visit, firing up your confident first house until September 27. Get the PR and social media campaigns underway. Shameless self-promotion is the fastest way to get your work (or just your sparkling self) into the public eye. This Mercury mojo will bring a wave of self-love, but the trick is to stop comparing yourself to other people and embrace the skin you’re in. Work with mantras to get your mind attuned to a powerful channel (“I celebrate my unique brand of beauty” or “I am beautiful, confident and radiant”). Want to really ace this lesson? Stand in front of the mirror and appreciate your reflection for a full five minutes every day. That said, time to yourself may be limited between Sunday and October 2 as your ruler, gracious, glamorous Venus, sails into Leo and your eleventh house of community. Team efforts could achieve liftoff, especially when it comes to creative projects. (Time to host that online summit?) Digital dating could bring a lucky swipe while Venus cruises your tech zone. If you’re single, tap that app!
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
The creative hemisphere of your brain will be firing on all cylinders starting Saturday as messenger Mercury soars through your dreamy twelfth house. Between now and September 27, the muse will visit you regularly during your daydreams—and in your sleep. You won’t want to lose those inspired gems, so keep a capture tool on your nightstand. This is a powerful time for releasing negative thoughts and healing. Work with a therapist or holistic healer to tap into the deep realms of your subconscious mind. You might even try EMDR or hypnosis. Past life regression, anyone? On Sunday, enchanting Venus sweeps into Leo, activating your tenth house of ambition and accolades until October 2. DM the movers and shakers and find clever ways to connect to influential people at work. Colleagues will easily see the brilliance in your ideas, giving you the green light to forge ahead—and potentially, a development budget! Since wherever she goes, Venus is the love planet, don’t be surprised to feel a frisson of attraction with someone you meet through work. If it won’t adversely impact your career, explore…but slowly.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
People become your passion again starting Saturday as communicator Mercury shifts into Libra and your innovative eleventh house.

With your tech sector getting some divine downloads from Mercury, the Internet could be a playground for prosperity. Spruce up your LinkedIn and Insta to attract the right attention. Comment strategically on an influencer’s feed, and you could become virtual friends. Maybe it’s time to develop your own webinar to share some of the knowledge you’ve cultivated. On Sunday, ardent Venus sweeps into Leo and your international ninth house this Sunday, setting up a smorgasbord of dating options until October 2. A soul-stirring conversation with someone from another culture (or continent) could blossom into a full-blown romance. Already attached?

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’re not one to leave things to chance, Capricorn, especially when it comes to your career.

You’ve got some long-term goals you’d like to realize, so make sure you’ve got all the bases covered. Establish a timeline with milestone markers. Mapping out your plan of attack gives you the confidence to forge ahead. First order of business this Sunday: Put together a playlist that’s heavy on the Frank Ocean and Prince. Sensual Venus slips into Leo and your eighth house of sacred intimacy and sexual healing until October 2. Drop the formalities and let yourself get a little more vulnerable. You’ll be amazed at how people respond when you let down your guard and open up emotionally. If that’s too much to ask with a romantic partner, start by sharing more with close friends. They’ve leaned on you aplenty, Capricorn, and will be happy to return the favor. See the full week >
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
On Saturday, mental Mercury leaves your intense and brooding eighth house and kicks off a three-week tour through Libra and your jovial ninth. You’ve had tunnel vision for the past few weeks, but now it’s time to step back so you can peer through a wide-angle viewfinder again. Hello, optimism! Travel is favored under this insanely curious Mercury cycle, so even if you can’t hop to another continent, what outdoorsy adventures can you squeeze in between now and September 27? Close to home, diversify your social portfolio. Friends from all walks of life could emerge over the coming few weeks. On Sunday, amorous Venus sails into Leo and your seventh house of partnerships until October 2, and you’ll feel a strong urge to merge. Jump on this energy to seal a business deal or invite your summer crush to join you for a romantic sunset dinner. Coupled? It’s a great time to talk about future plans, relationship goals and all the inspiring things you can accomplish together as a pair. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
On Saturday, curious Mercury slips into your mysterious eighth house, making you keener than ever to explore the esoteric side of life. A tarot deck—and maybe a pair of spy goggles—could be your favorite autumn accessories. Don’t underestimate your seductive powers between now and September 27. Your bewitchingly flirtatious words could cast spells. While it’s easy to attract interested parties, you won’t settle for less than a mind-body-soul connection. But careful, Pisces, because strong erotic chemistry can mask people’s true intentions over the next few weeks. Climb, run, hike or ride—but whatever you do, get out and get adventuring this Sunday. Radiant Venus sails into Leo in your sixth house of wellness, asking you to pay extra attention to your health until October 2. Bear in mind that Venus is the planet of pleasure, so skip the “no pain, no gain” mindset. With social Venus spurring you on, get your “people fix” by going on trail hikes and bike rides. Getting your body in motion could bring surprising movement for your love life! See the full week >
