Still nursing that full moon hangover? Last week revealed what’s most out of balance, and now we’re stuck reconciling the difference. Jupiter enters the heart of the sun on the 11th—an aspect of reset and recovery that will get us inspired (or hydrated). On the same day, Venus enters Gemini where the love planet connects through jokes and wordplay. Venus immediately makes a supportive trine to Pluto, leading us to friends and lovers who share our same obsessions. Despite these improvements, difficulty returns over the weekend when Venus squares Saturn on the 14th—an aspect of rejection, loneliness and isolation. It’s OK to have high standards but try not to be so hard on yourself!

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)

Once and for All: What Is the Best Zodiac Sign?

It’s still your birthday, babe! After last week’s difficult relationship revelations, you’re going to want to treat yourself to a spa day. Though your sister and your friends have their opinions on the situation, all that noise is going to confuse and upset you. Get quiet so you can hear your own thoughts.

This week’s mantra: “Inward.”

(April 20 - May 20)

Though last week brought major revelations about what’s missing from your routine, you don’t need to readjust your schedule immediately. In fact, you might be better off taking a break before you really get started. If the group chat is irritating you, put it on “Do Not Disturb” and engage again next week.

This week’s mantra: “Ignore.”

(May 21 - June 20)

Venus enters your sign on the 11th so now’s the time to let some sweetness back into your life.Though you’re tempted to make immediate beauty or wardrobe upgrades, do some shopping around before clicking buy. Venus clears her harsh square with limiting Saturn on the 14th and after that you'll feel less inhibited to get exactly what you want.

This week’s mantra: “Delayed gratification.”

(June 21 - July 22)

This year has brought many ups and downs, and even some false starts when it comes to your career and public image. But this week, you finally get that reset that you’ve been craving. There’s plenty of change still to come in this part of your life, but what happens this week is assurance that you’re on the right track.

This week’s mantra: “Affirm.”

(July 23 - Aug 22)

You’ve been putting travel on hold to get your career and/or relationships back on track. But after last week’s quick day trip, you’re feeling that undeniable wanderlust once again. Spend some time daydreaming about where you want to go. Don’t worry about how you’re going to “afford” to get there and lean into the fantasy.

This week’s mantra: “Dream.”

(August 23 - September 23)

Though last week was a reality check about where you stand with money and finances, that doesn’t mean you can’t keep dreaming about a long-term goal! No matter how expensive. In fact now’s the time to look into possible grants, loans or credit offers that could make your dreams more manageable.

This week’s mantra: “Collect.”

(September 23 - October 21)

Last week’s full moon likely left you reeling. It’s hard to reckon with the ways in which you’ve abandoned yourself while trying to serve others. But this week, you’re allowed to put aside the relationships that aren’t supporting you and lean into the ones that are filling your cup. There’s still some tweaks to work out as far as how you’re spending your time and attention. But for now, worry about the journey, not the destination.

This week’s mantra: “Satisfied.”

(October 22 - November 21)

Last week’s full moon revealed an uncomfortable truth, self-sabotaging behavior or hidden enemy, and now you’re left to adjust your expectations. Relief comes in throwing yourself into routine. Time to get your health and fitness back on track and find more consistent habits. Taking more time for yourself may cause conflict with your more surface relationships, but the real ones get that you need me time.

This week’s mantra: “Reconcile.”

(November 22 - December 21)

Last week’s full moon brought a wild weekend of birthday parties or bachelorette shenanigans, and now you’re ready to get back to your usual schedule. That means not just getting back to work, but also getting back on the apps (or joining a club) to look for that special someone. The people who come into your life over the next few weeks bring extra sweetness. Lean into that support!

This week’s mantra: “Easier together.”

(December 22 - January 19)

Career breakthroughs and breakdowns were revealed with last week’s full moon. You might be overwhelmed with the amount of responsibility that has landed on your plate. The best plan of action is to clear off your desk, buy yourself flowers and organize a to do list. You don’t need to stick to a rigid schedule, but you do need to create an environment where you want to relax and stay awhile.

This week’s mantra: “Bloom.”

(January 20 - February 18)

Venus enters your pleasure sector on the 11th ushering in your most romantic and artistic time of year! Though you’re feeling hot, bothered and inspired, you’re also feeling like you don’t have the resources to make ends meet. Your self-esteem also may take a hit as you consider what you don’t have. This heaviness should dissipate after the 14th when Venus clears her square with limiting Saturn giving you more space to breathe.

This week’s mantra: “Establish rules so you can play the game.”

(February 19 - March 20)

It’s been a long time since you’ve felt like you could truly relax in your own space. Whether you’ve been dealing with building repairs, a guest who won’t leave or difficult roommates, Venus enters your home sector on the 11th and you finally get peace. Enjoy your privacy while it lasts. Dance in your underwear! Scream into a pillow! Don’t hold yourself back.

This week’s mantra: “Dance like no one's watching.”
