Welcome to your weekly horoscope! After last week’s intense full moon (the Sturgeon full moon), this week’s astrology is much more mellow. There will be opportunities to integrate the changes and the learnings and there will also be opportunities for romance. 

The beginning of the week could still be intense as the Aries Moon illuminates some of our insecurities. Something someone says or does could trigger us, but this is a golden opportunity to look at the motives behind our actions. If we take the time to deal with this, we not only have the possibility to heal it—we could be in for a huge aha moment! 

Midweek is a fabulous time for a date or for attending social engagements. Lover Venus will form a beautiful trine with Jupiter, which is one of the luckiest astrological connections for romance and friendship. The Moon will be in Taurus, the most sensual sign of the zodiac, which will add an aura of pleasure to the mix. 

Over the weekend, Mars enters Gemini, which is kind of a big deal! Mars tends to spend six weeks in each sign, but due to its upcoming retrograde, Mars will stay in Gemini until March of 2023! 

Pay attention to what comes up for you over the weekend, as these could be themes that will be present in your life over the next six months.

Weekly horoscope: what does this week have in store for you?

Stay realistic, Aries! The Moon in your sign at the beginning of the week could have you overpromise, which could trigger your sense of freedom. Err on the safe side, because midweek, you will want time to date, go out, and socialize. Mars, your ruling planet, enters Gemini, activating your third house of communication. Over the next six months, you could be working on a book, media, or communication project. It’s also important to remember that your words have more power!

Taurus weekly horoscope

You could be feeling very introspective at the beginning of the week, and you should save your energy, because, by midweek, you could be feeling hungry for fun and attention! Your ruler, Venus, is now in flashy Leo, activating your need to be seen for the next three weeks! Pay attention to your finances as Mars enters this sector over the weekend. Your ability to make more money could skyrocket over the next six months—but also your ability to spend as well. 

Gemini weekly horoscope

This looks like a very social week for you, Gemini. You could be busy networking for your career, but also having tons of fun in the process! Mars entering your sign on Saturday will feel like a huge injection of energy. You will feel more ambitious, hungry for action, and more sexual over the next six months. You will also learn how to manage your masculine energy, as you might get angry more easily when you don’t get your way. Intense and sweaty workouts will be your medicine when this occurs. 

Cancer weekly horoscope

While the beginning of the week could feel intense at work, hang in there, Cancer—because the Venus-Jupiter trine could mean sweet news for you. More money or a new opportunity could be in the cards, so try socializing with your boss or colleagues around midweek. Communication does get tricky at the end of the week, so don’t believe everything you hear or think you see. Confusion will reign, so it’s best to spend some time alone doing the things you love the most.

Leo weekly horoscope

Last week’s full moon intensity could spill into this one, especially at work at the beginning of the week. Work diligently and you’ll see the rewards later in the year! Plan something fun on Wednesday or Thursday, either with your partner or friends. Socializing will be key here, as you could meet someone that will open your mind to new and exciting things, Leo! This really could be one of the most exciting weeks of the year for you, so get out there and mingle! 

Virgo weekly horoscope

A lot is happening behind the scenes in your life, so pay attention to your intuition and the signs you receive, especially at the beginning of the week. Secrets could be spilled around midweek, but because Mercury in your sign will be clashing with confusing Neptune, don’t act on anything yet. Under this energy, it’s best to wait until you have the full story. Wait until the fog clears to form a full opinion on any matter that seems strange, random, or confusing to you.

Libra weekly horoscope

Relationship drama could find you at the beginning of the week, Libra. Instead of hiding from tough conversations, dealing with the issue will make sure that it does not come back to haunt you! The energy gets super sweet around midweek, so make sure to make fun plans. If you’re looking for a partner, this could be a time you meet someone with promise. If you’re already with someone, make sure to let them know how you feel while the stars ignite your magnetism.

Scorpio weekly horoscope

Stay centered, Scorpio. Someone could comment on your work processes or your work ethic at the beginning of the week. If their comment triggers you, look inside to get to the root of it, as the trigger could be coming from an old insecurity. The good news is that, later in the week, career advancement is absolutely possible this week, so present some of your more audacious ideas to your bosses or those who could help you materialize them!

Sagittarius weekly horoscope

You could be in for a sweet week as the Venus-Jupiter trine ignites your inner fire, helping you showcase your talents and exciting personality. Use this energy to go after a goal or even tell someone you really like them, Sagittarius! Mars enters your relationship sector this weekend, initiating a six-month process in which you will completely transform the way you relate to other people. Pay attention to who comes into your life now—they have powerful lessons to teach you!

Capricorn weekly horoscope

Intense conversations could take place at home at the beginning of the week. While you are not one to get triggered easily—this time, it could hurt a bit. Ask yourself why, Capricorn. The good news is that the energy sweetens by midweek, and fireworks could even occur between you and a special someone. If you’re single and looking, this is the time to put yourself out there. Go out and mingle while the energy is showcasing you!

Aquarius weekly horoscope

Last week’s full moon intensity could spill into this one, so watch your words with bosses or a business partner. An ex or new love interest could get in touch this week, and you should explore the possibility, as some of the best love connections happen under this astro-weather. Your approach to romance, in fact, is a theme you will be working with for the next six months as Mars activates your house of dating, dear Aquarius.

Pisces weekly horoscope

Know your worth, Pisces. People around you will be opinionated this week, which could trigger your feelings. If old insecurities about your self-worth come up, get to the bottom of it as part of your spiritual work. Also, know that not all things people say will be true, or even correct, as Mercury will be activating confusing Neptune in your sign. Mars enters your home and family sector this week, heralding a six-month period in which you will be focusing more on this part of your life.
