Get ready for a ride, because this weekly horoscope comes with some challenges that will keep us on our toes. The good news is that there is so much opportunity for growth if we know how to handle the tough love from the universe.
We begin the week under a merging of the planet of love and the planet of boundaries. When Venus and Saturn unite, we find it hard to express our feelings towards others and our relationships are tested. However, these tests are what make our connections even stronger, so try to see how the issues that come up for you now can help make those relationships more mature.
On Friday, we will welcome the first new moon of the astrological year, which is happening in the skies of Aries. New moons are times of new beginnings—and this one, in particular, will have us feeling ambitious and ready to set lofty goals. At this time, the luminaries will be activating Chiron, the Wounded Healer, so do expect some insecurities from the past to come up around this time. Know that facing these setbacks Aries-style, head-on will prevent you from falling. You have drive and stamina, so nothing can stop you from achieving your goal this time around!
Over the weekend, take the road less traveled and be open to receiving messages and seeing synchronicities, they will be all around you.

Weekly horoscope: what does this week have in store for you?
What are your biggest dreams and aspirations, Aries? This week’s new moon is happening in your sign, bringing one of the most positive opportunities of the year to set intentions. If Chiron’s influence makes you doubt yourself, take it as a clear sign that there is something to heal. The weekend brings a moment of lucidity, when you might have access to some information or ideas that were previously unavailable or hidden. Keep a journal by your side.
The Venus-Saturn meet-up might feel like a weight on your shoulders, Taurus. But remember, Saturn brings us the opportunity to build something meaningful. Take some time this week to strategize your future based on the events that come up for you, this is especially true for you in the realm of career. Over the weekend, the Moon meets with wild child Uranus by your side, opening your mind to the possibilities you seek. Think outside the box, and you will find the answers you’re looking for.
You’ve most likely been focusing a lot of your attention on your career, but this week’s astrology is all about networking. The Aries new moon wants you to get in touch with people who can help you, so make sure to update your Linkedin profile to keep an eye on the peeps who could be helping you succeed. The rewards could come as early as this weekend, so if someone asks you on a business-y date over the weekend, make sure to attend!
For you, Cancer, this week’s new moon is all about asserting yourself in the realm of career and public visibility. Take a leap, plant a seed, or begin something new under this energy. If you do so, someone could come out of nowhere wanting to help you. This weekend’s astro is ideal for going out with friends and doing something crazy—or at least, out of the ordinary as the Moon and Uranus instigate you to show your wild side.
A relationship comes under focus at the beginning of the week, and the two possibilities include ending it—or taking it to the next level. You already know which way to go, Leo! Your ruler, the Sun, meets with Chiron this week, shedding light on some of your insecurities. Don’t shy away from facing these, Leo, because doing so will not make them go away. Confronting them head-on, on the other hand, could really dissolve them for once and for all.
Work might be quite busy at the beginning of the week, when you may need to focus on landing a contract or sealing an important deal. If you do so, this deal could be quite profitable. If you have a partner, this week’s new moon might mean having tough conversations around money. The good news is that it also marks a new beginning in the way you handle your joint finances. Overall, it looks like a very productive week ahead of you!
Big things are happening this week, Libra. A relationship seems to be forming or moving to the next level—but before that, there might be a tough conversation around boundaries. Old baggage and stuff from the past could be resurfacing, and while it might not be your style to rock the boat, trust us when we say it is necessary. Honoring your limits and knowing those of the other party will secure you a brighter future together.
This week’s new moon falls in your sixth house of wellness, Scorpio, bringing the best time of the year to begin a new eating or workout regime. Alternatively, it’s also a great time to launch a product or a new system that helps you work faster and better. While this lunation can feel intense, the fact that it is being supported by Mars and Saturn means that the effort you put in will be long-term. So, get to work, Scorpio!
Communication is your focus for the week as encountered influences ask you to speak up and interact, while also preventing you to express fully. Activate your voice, Sagittarius, even if it seems hard. Doing the hard work at the beginning of the week pays off at the end. This coming weekend is the perfect time to grab your car, a friend, or your partner, and drive off somewhere new and exciting. Be spontaneous and see where life takes you!
You seem busy at work closing a sweet deal at the beginning of the week. But as the days progress, the focus shift to your home. It might be the perfect time to take Friday off and focus on your family or loved ones. This area of life is what the new moon will highlight, so make sure to invest all your energy here. It is a time of heightened awareness of your roots, intimacy issues, and getting in touch with your deepest needs.
Have you ever felt unable to speak your truth, Aquarius? This week’s new moon activates your third house of communication—and with Chiron being involved here, issues around this subject might come to the surface. The antidote? Sing, scream, and speak up! There really is no other way around it. The rewards come as early as this weekend when a breakthrough could very well be in the cards.
Release and desist, Pisces. For you, the Venus-Saturn meetup is happening in a very deep area of your astrological chart. This could highlight the many ways in which you have underestimated your gifts and talents. But guess what? This week’s new moon is the perfect time to show yourself some love—and begin anew. As the moon renews herself, so do you! Welcome this lunation by writing a list of qualities that you love about yourself, and put it where you can read it every single day.
