Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Taking care of business…or drifting on a dream? On Saturday, mental Mercury is in Virgo and your orderly sixth house, inspiring you to tackle the nitty-gritty details. But before you can fully dive into a project, distractions come from all directions. Throughout the day, the communication planet will oppose foggy Neptune in your hazy twelfth house. Break up your work with a dance party or a rejuvenating reward (ten-minute chair massage, anyone?). Be careful not to get sucked into cleaning up someone else’s messes. Finish your own plans before sweeping in for the save. On Sunday, “anything goes” Jupiter brings some wilder energy to your planning process, inspiring you to dream outside the box. But don’t try to implement these ideas immediately—just get them down on the whiteboard. That sourcing trip to Paris or Marrakesh may or may not make sense in 2019, but you need to envision life as if anything and everything were possible. See the full week >
Taurus (March 21 – April 19)
If you see something, say something? Maybe not this Saturday. Mental Mercury in your passionate and expressive fifth house opposes foggy Neptune in your group sector. Intervening too quickly could create even more confusion. Temper your reactions, particularly in social settings. A friend or colleague could SEEM upset or irritable, but you might be imagining it. Don’t rush to confront anyone, especially if you’re feeling triggered. When in doubt, wait it out. On Sunday, feelings intensify—and could verge on the dramatic—as the Sun in your theatrical fifth house squares over-the-top Jupiter in your potent eighth. No need for overemphasis, Bull. Under these skies, you might not be aware of your own strength. Remind yourself that subtlety is an art form and enter conversations with a softer touch. Give people the benefit of the doubt before letting suspicious run wild. While you don’t want to be SO esoteric that people miss your point, start by asking questions instead of acting on assumption. You may be pleasantly surprised. See the full week >
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Table any big decisions that crop up on Saturday. Your ruler, thoughtful Mercury, is in Virgo, activating your emotional fourth house. While this puts you deeply in touch with your feelings, they may be too strong to act as a reliable guide. Throughout the day, the communication planet will face off with foggy Neptune in your house of career and long-term planning. You could freak out about the future or get totally overwhelmed by work. Instead of fueling this (temporary) loss of perspective, slow down and indulge in some self-care. After a yoga class or a proper meal (eaten far away from your devices), you’ll feel refreshed and ready to deal. Careful not to overdo it in relationships on Sunday! It’s hard to regain “hot mama” status once you’ve crossed into “sugar mama” territory. If the one you adore is struggling, you don’t have to rush in to fix it or pick up the slack, even if you COULD make it all better. Chime in with a pep talk; point them toward helpful resources. Your faith in their abilities is the greatest form of support. See the full week >
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Talk is cheap on Saturday, but the results could be more than you bargained for as chatty Mercury faces off with foggy Neptune in your over-optimistic ninth house. Have you verified the facts behind those claims that you’re making? Be careful before you spout off anything that you can’t fully back up. Read the fine print before rushing into any offers, too. You could be gullible or easily swayed by a smooth talker. Check in with yourself on Sunday: Did you bite off more than you can chew again? Instead of burning the midnight oil to get it done—and winding up exhausted and resentful—embrace the power of partnership. Spend the day getting organized and systematized. It will be easier to bring people on-board if you spell out instructions clearly. You might even jot down an intention for your mission. People will be extra motivated to join you if you can paint a picture of the inspiring outcome you’re trying to create. See the full week >
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Is it an investment…or a money pit? On Saturday, hazy Neptune in your eighth house of lump sums could tempt you to plunk down hard-earned moolah on a big-ticket item. As the foggy planet opposes impulsive Mercury in your second house of finance, it could feel like money is burning a hole in your pocket. Don’t rush to spend it all in one place, Leo. Instead of leaping into a big financial commitment, do your research. Make sure this will really deliver the returns you want and that you’re not being overly optimistic. Sunday’s dynamic square between the Sun and Jupiter gets the enterprising wheels in motion. You don’t have to give up your love of luxury if funds are tight or because you’re saving up for a more practical purchase. Think: creative financing. Maybe you could barter goods for services or do a work-study to fund a few classes at that fancy yoga studio. Set up a clothing swap with fashion-forward friends whose style is on-par with your own tastes. See the full week >
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Chatty Mercury is in Virgo this Saturday, putting the focus on numero uno. About time! You’re eager to dive into a personal project that you’ve been putting off. But beware the pull of a shiny distraction. Seductive Neptune in your interpersonal house will oppose the communication planet throughout the day, luring you off track. Stay focused, even if the most enchanting creature interrupts. Make plans for later so you have something to look forward to—a reward for your devotion! Detaching is never easy, but on Sunday, doing so will help you remain objective. But don’t pull SO far back that you forget to feel your feelings. Note how someone affects you and drink it in. Remember: Just because a swarm of butterflies are fluttering through your stomach doesn’t mean you have to leap into action (or take flight out of fear). Take a few deep breaths when your heart starts racing. And if necessary, call people back after you have a moment to get calm and centered. See the full week >
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Overwhelm alert! On Saturday, mental Mercury is in your hazy twelfth house, calling for a slower pace. But throughout the day, the communication planet will oppose boundary-blurring Neptune in your get-‘er-done sixth house. Your efforts to zone out (and Zen out) will be interrupted by guilt trips, pseudo-crises and “urgent” deadlines that really aren’t. Remind yourself that “no” is a complete sentence—and don’t feel bad about using it! Sunday’s dynamic angle between philosophical Jupiter and the self-authorized Sun could open your mind to new viewpoints. Before you formulate a final opinion, do your independent research and reading. While there’s value in going with your gut, your intuition may be muddled by some old fears. Don’t let unresolved issues block you from moving forward. Discussing them with an evolved friend can bring an insightful perspective to life. Hello, breakthrough! See the full week >
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
People overload! On Saturday, talkative Mercury is in your eleventh house of group activity, making it hard to find personal space. Cranking up the chaos, Mercury will oppose crazymaker Neptune in your dramatic fifth house throughout the day. Everywhere you go, people could be talking loudly, giving unsolicited opinions or demanding attention. Think twice before asking for advice, unless you want a zillion conflicting opinions. And don’t sign on to play mediator between warring friend factions. Be the stabilizing force within a group on Sunday. Others may be freaking out, but you don’t have to fall down that rabbit hole. The way back to center is by simplifying everything. Break the shared mission down into smaller tasks and give everyone a territory to cover. But then again, has this group become too disorganized for your liking? It may be time to move on and form your own organization, with people who are committed and more responsible.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You’re ready to dive into the weekend pumped to tackle your loftiest goals. And with the help of mental Mercury in your ambitious tenth house, you could make serious headway. But watch out: On Saturday, a sharp opposition from guilt-tripping Neptune in your home and family zone could stir up personal-life drama that takes you away from your weekend desk sesh. Just as you get going, distractions could come from relatives or needy neighbors. Even if you manage to stave them off, you should still pace yourself. Sunday’s chaotic clash between the Sun and Jupiter in Sagittarius could make it hard to know when you’re overdoing it. In your enthusiasm, you might volunteer to take on too many tasks or agree to a plan that you don’t actually have time to pull off. To avoid a crash of any variety (from a hangover to burnout), just say “maybe.” Check your calendar and be realistic about what you’re capable of. Most of all, ditch the sense of obligation and devote time to goals that spark joy. See the full week >
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
The truth shall set you free? Well sure, as long as people don’t misinterpret your messaging! Alas, they’ll do exactly that on Saturday, no matter how clear you think you’re being. You can thank foggy Neptune for the scrambled signals: throughout the day, it will be opposing talkative Mercury in your outspoken ninth house. People (you included) are prone to distraction. Keeping things TOO real could hurt a colleague or friend’s feelings. Slow down, be tactful and explain yourself a few extra times to be sure they truly get you. Sure, people ought to toughen up—but why take chances? With the Sun and boundless Jupiter in a muddled square on Sunday, your hedonistic impulses are at the wheel. When you find yourself saying, “Oh, just this once,” it’s probably time to hit the brakes, not rush ahead compulsively. Instead of self-medicating with sweets or bottomless Pinots, rearrange your schedule so that you can use today to recharge. You’ll be far more productive after a pedicure, chair massage or a little retail therapy—but pay in cash to avoid overspending. See the full week >
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Don’t force yourself to go public with a big reveal yet, Aquarius. On Saturday, expressive Mercury in your secretive eighth house will oppose illusory Neptune. While you don’t have to be completely opaque, dropping little hints will whet people’s appetites for more. If someone is being evasive with you, don’t assume they’re untrustworthy. Maybe they just don’t feel comfortable enough to tell you their whole life story. Give things time to develop at a natural pace. Let go of the control on Sunday, Aquarius, and just let life flow. As expansive Jupiter clashes with the Sun, trying to orchestrate everything will quickly grow exhausting. Perhaps you’ve been trying too hard to force an outcome or get a group of people to bond. The only adult you can be responsible for is yourself. Pull yourself out of the morass with some intellectually stimulating activities. Attend a lecture or go for a walk while listening to an audiobook from an inspiring author. A meditation circle may have “Aquarius” written all over it. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
There’s a lot of energy swirling through your interpersonal sector on Saturday as talkative Mercury moves through Virgo and your partnership house. But the communication planet will also be facing off against hazy Neptune in Pisces, making you distracted and even a bit self-absorbed. Pro tip: Don’t overschedule yourself. If you start checking out mid-convo, that’s your cue that you need some alone time. Even ten or 15 minutes of serenity is better than nothing—especially for a sign like yours that soaks up people’s emotions like a sponge! On Sunday, you won’t feel satisfied with the “wait and see” approach to partnerships. With the Sun and venturesome Jupiter in a dynamic square, you’d like to have SOME idea about where things are heading. By all means, start a dialogue. The catch: If you’re too heavy-handed with these talks, people will feel pressured. Maybe it’s time to take your first vacation together or kick off a fall project. Focusing on the next step is better than trying to map out your eternal bond. See the full week >
