After the partial solar eclipse this past Saturday, this week will still, unfortunately, bring some miscommunication with the loved ones in our lives. Thankfully, it’s the last week (woo hoo!) of Mercury Retrograde, so that’s something to look forward to.
On the bright side, this weekend is shaping up to be a little calmer — issues will be resolved, and the love life will definitely be on the upswing with Mercury sextile Venus and the ending of Mercury Retrograde, which will officially occur on Sunday.
Check out what this week has in store for you, courtesy of astrologer Katy Ibur.
Aries (March 21-April 20)
This week will bring some confusion around how you want to express yourself creatively. The last few weeks may have stirred you to reevaluate what still brings you pleasure and what excites you, including in the bedroom. Expect some passionate gains with your romantic partner later this weekend!
Taurus (April 21-May 20)
The last few weeks have been intense emotionally, to say the least. A lot of things from the past have been coming up and the family life hasn’t been running as smoothly. Expect things to start to shift back to normal this weekend. Your family will also start to appreciate and notice all the effort you have been putting in to make their lives easier.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Use this week to try to listen more than you speak. There is a high likelihood that you have been misunderstood or felt anxious these past few weeks, so allow yourself to be quiet and just receive the messages being sent from the people around you. Harmonize with the daily stressors you face and know that you will feel lighter, more creative, and ready to communicate more efficiently this weekend.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This week shakes up how you view your self-worth. Be sure to prioritize self-care this week, whether that be cuddling up with a good book or a night in with your sweetheart. This weekend you will feel fantastic as you release some old emotions from the past. Self-esteem will also start to increase on Sunday as Mercury stations direct.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
With the Partial Solar Eclipse in Leo happening this past weekend, you may be feeling the residual energy more than most. You might also be feeling that your partner hasn’t been respecting or providing for your needs. Perhaps you’ve been re-evaluating what your needs even are, because they definitely have been shifting the last few weeks. This weekend is a great time to sit down with your romantic partner to talk about both of your needs. You will feel you are being truly heard for the first time in weeks.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You may be feeling more anxious than usual this week. You have been very tuned in to all of the upsetting events happening in the world and there has also been more drama in your personal life. You have been scrambling to tune out these uncomfortable emotions, but just allow for imperfection in all its forms this week. The weekend will bring the end to some of the drama and you will feel more uplifted.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Your friend networks have been shifting the last few weeks, and you may be feeling confused about where you want to go in life and how to go about it. There are just too many options, and too many choices to make! This week, allow for the indecisiveness and know that this weekend you will feel more clarity around your needs and the best next steps.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
This week brings more unexpected shifts in both your career and professional life. You may be feeling a little hopeless about your work condition improving anytime soon but keep your eyes on the prize. Focus on what you DO want and know that you have the power to make the changes to get there. Avoid acting on these desires until next week, after Mercury stations direct on Sunday.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
This week you are looking for ways to break up your daily routine with a mixed bag of success. You are probably feeling stuck and in a bit of a rut, and your level of optimism has been a little dampened. You may feel your romantic partner isn’t being as adventurous as you would like. So, this weekend, schedule some time with friends doing a new, fun activity. This “friend date” will rejuvenate your spirits and you will feel more confident by the end of the weekend.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
This week continues to bring intense emotions that are very uncomfortable. Be sure to find someone to talk to about your feelings— whether it be your romantic partner or a good friend. Allow yourself to be vulnerable and ask for help. This weekend, complete a DIY project with your romantic partner that it is both decorative and practical. Putting your attention on a hands-on task will give you a sense of achievement that will start to pull you out of the bad mood by Sunday’s end.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
There has been a lot of miscommunication with your romantic partner the last few weeks. And if you’re single, this is not a great week to go on new dates. Instead, spend the week reflecting on what you want and need in a romantic partnership. If you are in a relationship, be sure to be more empathetic and generous with your partner than usual. Small acts of kindness will go a long way. This weekend, go on a day trip with your sweetie. If single, Sunday is a great time to set up a date with that person you have been messaging.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
This week your romantic partner may challenge you on the role you are playing in your relationship. Have you been emotionally checked out? Have you been withholding intimacy? Avoid engaging in any deep conversations until the weekend. On Saturday, let your partner know how you have been feeling recently, but be vulnerable and trust that the connection with your partner will deepen. Sunday will bring you more confidence with how you can best be of service to the loved ones in your life.
