As summer continues to speed on by, it’s important to become aware of your surroundings, both physical and astrological. To better understand what this week has in store for you and your sign, check out your weekly love horoscope, courtesy of astrologer Christian Klausner.
Aries (March 21–April 20)
This week you’ll be initiating things perhaps not in your usual way (all fervor and flames) but with forethought and consideration as your planet, Mars, is retrograde. While you may have less of your natural enthusiasm, you’ll have an increase in realism. Take your time, especially in dealing with highly charged emotional matters. It’ll be natural for you to be more analytical than usual, so make an effort to think with your heart, and love with your brain.
Taurus (April 21–May 20)
Now is the time to enjoy your creations! The energy this week can be a little nit-picky if you’re not at ease or in a relaxed state; however, you’re able to enjoy your perceptivity and revel in all the beautiful details which compose the art of your life, love, and work. Take the needed measures to calm that nervous system, and realize it’s all unfolding perfectly for you.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
It’s your last week before Mercury retrograde! Have anything you need to say? Now is not the time to hold anything in. An adage which I’m sure you’re aware of is all too relevant this week: “Seek first to understand, then to be understood.” Sometimes, getting everything out on the table is the only way to get a good look at it, and the expression of your needs is likely to be well received. Others will appreciate your openness and honesty.
Cancer (June 21– July 22)
While this week may have its challenges, you’ll pull through with flying colors if you can stay centered in your being, rather than your having. It’s about who you become, not what you get. And you’re becoming someone who recognizes and feels the person beneath the costume, the soul under the flesh. Your compassion and kind words will do more for others than they will be able to express. Release any lingering attachments or expectations, and the reward at the end of this week will be great.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Get up and try again, dear lion—you look so good when you do. Mercury slowing down in your sign is urging you to find the right words, technique, and method. You’ll surely find it—just keep trying! Your persistence this week is not only attractive, it will end in the development of an unshakeable confidence in your newly acquired understandings and abilities. Have plenty of loving patience on hand this week, for yourself and your partner. Two steps backward? Who cares when you’ll get three steps forward! And it will appear to others as if you were just dancing all along.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Venus, the goddess of love, is affectionately drifting through your sign, endowing you with all the beauty, elegance, and magnetism you need to complete the tasks you’re faced with this week. Don’t stress, and you’ll be more likely to attract those who can help pull you through. When Venus and Neptune come into an opposition at the end of the week, romantic experiences can get extremely mystical. Embrace the magic, but try to keep your feet on the ground as well.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
The Sun is finally coming off of an opposition with Pluto in your sectors of work and family this week—meaning, you’re going to get some time to relax, tensions will dissolve all on their own, and you won’t feel as torn between two important areas of your life anymore. Especially when the Moon comes into your sign Tuesday night, Wednesday, and Thursday, take some needed time to reflect on how you’ve grown in your maturity, knowledge, and use of power. And then, when the Sun enters Leo on Sunday, go be immature and have a party with your favorite people.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
Jupiter, the planet of all things “big,” is finally out of his retrograde, moving forward in your sign again! Hope has returned, the opportunities are flooding in, and all that’s called for now is your readiness to respond. You may get a surge of energy this week, Scorpio, so the wisdom of the heavens advises that you don’t overwhelm your loved ones who might not be on your same level. Use that energy for yourself, for every bit of energy you invest in yourself, you invest in your future—and your future is getting brighter by the day.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
How many times this week can you say, “I got this!”? Apparently, infinity. Your enthusiasm is at an all-time high, because things are finally moving forward, and the cosmic swell of energy is just suiting you nicely. But do avoid taking on more than you can handle, Sag, especially in your work and social life. Leave some for your lover, who is going to want every bit they can get of the warmth, confidence, and goodwill you’re exuding. Opportunities will arise at work, but you don’t need to say “yes” to every single one of them. Find balance. Be aware of your limits, especially when you feel limitless.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
The "art of allowing" is something you’re getting good at, although it hasn’t been easy for a go-getter like you. But this week, let’s sharpen those zen skills even further. Allow the new path or direction you’ve been needing to show itself, allow your loved ones to shower you with affection, allow for space within yourself so you can hear the divine tell you just what you need to do. In an intimate space, allow your sweetheart to speak, and listen with your whole being. And if you’re single, allow for new love to come in.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
You don’t need to come up with all the answers this week, Aquarius. Rather than doing things your own way, you might benefit more by asking for advice and getting as much input as you can. Getting out of your comfort zone and sparking up conversations with strangers can prove serendipitously beneficial this week. Make use of the wisdom that’s all around you, and when it evokes a response within, then you’ll know what to do.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Life is taking you in many interesting directions. Getting to know yourself on a deeper level will be the best way to equip you for the journey ahead. There may be a danger of seeing everything through rose-colored glasses this week when Venus opposes Neptune in your sign. Be as real and as honest with yourself and your loved ones as you can, but don’t let it turn to pessimism, because the possibilities are, indeed, endless.
