After a busy week filled with giving lots of thanks and eating lots of food, it’s time to officially kick off the busy holiday season. Be sure to not get too caught up in the hustle and bustle, though — remaining in tune with your feelings and surroundings can be quite difficult this time of year, so it’s incredibly necessary to take time for self-care.
To help you stay connected this week and beyond, here is your love horoscope, courtesy of expert astrologer Christian Klausner.
Aries: March 20–April 20
Things are opening up for you this week, but there also seems to be the need to contain your vital energies. Your mind is opening and your vision is sharp on the horizon, but the actual terrain ahead and in front of you may be a little tricky. Despite your breadth of vision and growing willingness to learn, the answers themselves will take some work to find! And that work, for you, is inner work. Your planet Mars being in Pisces is a sure and simple indicator of that. When it comes into your sign on January 1, then you will have lift-off. But until then, you can gain the most and find the answers you need by going within.
Taurus: April 20–May 21
The issue of trust is receiving some attention now, and although it may be operating on the level of your relationships, the truth of the matter is to be found in your own trust of self. This week, solidify your trust in yourself—whether it’s to make the right decisions, to complete what you set out to do, to create a fulfilling life, etc.—so that next week you’ll know exactly what to choose and what to refuse when your many opportunities, invitations, and offers come rolling in. If you have difficulty trusting others this week, you’re probably feeling these intuitions for a reason. Know that you can cut away at much confusion with a few calming breaths, and an intention to tune into the wisdom of your heart.
Gemini: May 21–June 21
Communication can be tricky this week, dear Gemini, especially when you have to work with individuals who are not as motivated as you are. Getting others to cooperate with you can be frustrating, particularly if you have many strong and specific expectations for how you would like things to look. During this period of Mercury retrograding in your sector of partnerships, it will be helpful to exercise tolerance, patience, and acceptance when dealing with others, whether in business or love. It will be in the little ways that you can demonstrate a kindness (through small gestures of approval or words of understanding) that will come through as a profound and generous love to the eyes of others this week.
Cancer: June 21–July 22
This is a week of making adjustments, dear Cancer. A tweak here, and a little tug there—you’re able to perceptively find ways to fine-tune the elements of your life that will allow for greater ease and efficiency. However, your ability to detect where corrections can be made this week will need to be controlled so that you do not stress out or become restless. Find enjoyment in the process, if you can, of making your living situations more conducive to an efficient, harmonious, and healthy lifestyle. Enjoy how the insights simply come to you, as a result of being open to positive change.
Leo: July 22–August 23
This week has good things in store for you, dear Leo, but you’ve got to be patient with yourself when it comes to your creative expression. Mercury retrograde is providing an experience where it can be fruitful to revise your creative methods. To make things easy this week, keep your ideal in mind and act in accordance with it as best as you can. Speak simple and kind words of love, and discuss only those things that spiral your thoughts into exalted states of hope and wonder. Don’t play into the game of tossing around gossip; keep to your ideal, and let your heart lead you in all matters of communication.
Virgo: August 23–September 23
All kinds of repairs can be made within the home this week. These can be physical repairs, or emotional repairs in your relationships—but restoration is surely forthcoming, and all you need to do is simply be present. To go smoothly, these repairs simply need your overarching supervision, you could say. All you need to do is be there—for your family, for your friends, or for the plumber to come in and fix the sink—because your presence, your observant consciousness upon the matter, is facilitating or holding space for the best possible outcome. All week long, let love pour out of your eyes as you look upon your world.
Libra: September 23–October 23
This is an excellent week for educational pursuits, dear Libra. Your mind is absorptive and flexible, and the exercise of concentration can be a rewarding practice. The reason you can strengthen your faculty of concentration is because you will likely attract many distractions, with Venus spending this week in your sign, which boosts your personal magnetism and enhances your glow. To get the most benefit from this week, the trick will be to continue learning even after you’ve put your books down. Study every interaction, and you will gain insight into your own nature as a social and lovable being. Enriching your knowledge of yourself will prove to be the most rewarding interest of all this week.
Scorpio: October 23–November 22
Mercury is retrograding in your money sector, dear Scorpio. This is an opportunity to revise your mentality around wealth and to take charge of your creative direction regardless of how conditions may appear at present. You have the freedom to shape your perspectives, and this is a highly empowering fact when internalized. This week offers you the space to assertively furnish your mental environment with countless diamonds and endless gold rivers. What use would outer wealth be anyway, if you didn’t feel wealthy on the inside? Make this the week where you will discover new vistas of prosperity internally, and the outer will mirror the inner as it always does.
Sagittarius: November 22–December 21
The Sun is now in your sign, dear Sagittarius, so happy birthday season to you! This week starts it off with an explosion of Sagittarian energy, as Jupiter, Mercury, and the Sun all form a conjunction in your sign (meaning they’re together in one spot). This energy is familiar to you, making this a very positive week for all ventures that allow you to expand in self-expression and creativity. With Mercury retrograding in your sign, this is a very favorable week for self-reflection. The healing of your inner child is taking place, if you will give a little attention to him/her this week. You can help this process along by seeing your self-understanding as a journey, in which you are always right where you should be. Be adventurous this week, and go boldly into new terrain (both outer and inner).
Capricorn: December 21–January 20
This may be the time for a softer approach, dear Capricorn. Venus in your career sector is highlighting the fact that your sensitive, loving, and compassionate expressions can do wonders for the advancement of both your vocation and self-realization. A willingness to be vulnerable and to show your caring instincts will bring you into a favorable light which will attract the right people at just the right time. In all matters of business let your heart lead the way. Conversely, in matters of love and romance, it will be helpful to employ your enterprising spirit so as to invent new ways of bringing in more color and richness into your relationships this week.
Aquarius: January 20–February 18
This Mercury retrograde is happening in your sector of friends and networks, dear Aquarius, making this a propitious time to contemplate whether or not you’re hanging with the right groups. The nature of our associations tends to reflect back to us how good we are at expressing our goals, aspirations, and objectives, and making our deepest dreams known. If you don’t feel supported by the groups you’re involved in, or you feel that your friend groups aren’t resonating with your highest ideals or visions for your future, then this can be a great time to do the hard task of letting certain people go. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that we end up being the average of the five closest people we associate with. Is that an average you’re happy with?
Pisces: February 18–March 20
Mercury retrogrades in your sector of career and vocation, dear Pisces, allowing you to mentally reframe what it would mean for you to stand out publicly and professionally, and how you can contribute your own unique form of creative world service. Jupiter is blowing up this area with good luck for you as well, while Mars in your own sign gives you courage and assertiveness. If channeled correctly, this can be a time in which any pent up anger or aggression within you can be relieved through directing this energy into creative practices that allow you to self-express and release certain emotions. Having plenty of forgiveness for yourself and others is a powerful companion to this process. Make this the week where you step into a new realization of your power.
