There’s something to celebrate this week because eclipse season is finally over! But after that big emotional release, you’re probably sitting with a heavy eclipse hangover. Mercury is still retrograde, so pop an Advil, put on a face mask and press play on another season of Survivor from 2007. After all those big changes, you deserve a little rest. Just be prepared for an unexpected twist to your lowkey plans when the sun connects with innovative Uranus on the 9th.

The week’s tone is set with Venus entering Cancer on the 7th where her love language is indulgent dinner parties, flipping through high school yearbooks and getting an extra donut just because. Venus in Cancer feels most in control when surfing on waves of nostalgia. Think: Venus in Cancer native Ben Affleck and his love for hometown fave Dunkin Donuts. Venus connects with Mercury retrograde on the 12th inspiring fun and creative conversations and Saturn on the 13th which could lead to more serious commitments. Mercury retrograde and Saturn also connect on the 12th bringing a passing thought from April 5 back to the table. This week it’s best to follow what flows.

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

Since late March, there’s been a lot of reshuffling at home: not speaking to your sister over something dumb, a new coffee table throwing off the living room feng shui and tech upgrades going awry—no one can get the LED lights to connect to Alexa. But on the 7th Venus moves into your home sector bringing some sweetness that helps you clean up the mess and get organized. Time to dust yourself off and try again.

This week’s mantra: “I choose to nurture my foundations.”

Your ruling planet Venus moves into Cancer and your communication sector this week bringing all kinds of art, beauty and pleasure to your immediate environment. There’s some gorgeous paintings at the coffee shop, a new hottie at your bestie’s housewarming party and new music from your favorite artist. Use this as an opportunity to share more of what you love with your closest friends. You’re a tastemaker! Use your influence.

This week’s mantra: “My taste is unrivaled.”

Venus moves into Cancer and your money sector on the 7th which brings good news for your bank account. Since late March, you’ve had a ton of unexpected expenses and gone on a bit of a spending frenzy so now’s the time to open your bills and clean up the mess. Though it’s best to be a bit more frugal over the next few weeks, don’t be cheap about nourishing meals or quality time with friends and family. Gather your friends for a picnic! Enjoy some treats!

This week’s mantra: “I choose what’s nourishing.”

(June 21 - July 22)

You’ve needed a win for a long time, and you finally get one this week when Venus enters your sign on the 7th. For months you’ve been dealing with stress and (literal) inflammation but with this ingress, you get to focus on feeling good in your body for once. With Mars still in your sign through the 20th, there’s the possibility of more heat and flare ups though so schedule a haircut, style a cute outfit and treat yourself to the expensive moisturizer to cool down. You deserve it.

This week’s mantra: “Cool as a cucumber.”

(July 23 - Aug 22)

Some unexpected responsibility is thrust upon you on the 9th when the sun meets surprising Uranus. Though you’d usually take this as a moment to boast or flaunt your power, it’s best to operate under the radar this time. Focus on the behind-the-scenes work and make sure you allow time to rest. It’s time to iron out some creases in your life before your big debut next month.

This week’s mantra: Secrets are fun.”

As you navigate new responsibilities in your life, it’s been hard to find friends who are on your level. But that all turns around when Venus enters your friendship sector on the 7th bringing you plenty of opportunities to meet new people and genuinely connect over the next few weeks. These aren’t just fair-weather friends but people who you’ll want to travel with and learn from. Embrace the sea change!

This week’s mantra: “It’s about the journey, not the destination.”

(September 23 - October 21)

Your ruling planet Venus moves into Cancer and your career sector on the 7th giving you an opportunity to clean up some professional frustrations that have come up since late March. You’ve been struggling with asserting your identity or gaining the respect of VIPs, but this transit (especially on the 13th) allows you to impress who needs impressing. It’s time to get some new headshots, update your website or put your name in the ring for a promotion.

This week’s mantra: “I’m worthy of praise.”

(October 22 - November 21)

With last week’s solar eclipse in your sign, you won the “biggest emotional release” competition handily and have every right to take this week off. But there are some intriguing opportunities on the table with Venus moving into your travel and education sector on the 7th. Though it’s best not to make any hard plans or decisions now with Mercury still retrograde, spend some time Pinterest-ing and vision boarding to manifest what you want.

This week’s mantra: “If I can see it, I can make it happen.”

Last week’s eclipse might’ve left you feeling drained and out of control, so no one blames you for starting this week bitter or melancholy. But with Venus moving into your shared resources sector on the 7th, help is on the way, if only you’re brave enough to ask for it! The last several months have contained a lot of tough conversations and stressful negotiations, but now’s the time to catch bees with honey.

This week’s mantra: “I attract positivity.”

Whether you’re settling into a better routine with your partner, signing a great deal with a client or finally getting some quality time with your BFF, you’re feeling confident that this isn’t just a fleeting feeling, it’s meant to last! While you’re feeling good, make sure there’s room for more sweetness in your schedule in the weeks to come.

Things have been beyond busy in your world since late March and though there’s still so much to do, this week you get a bit of relief. Venus moves into your daily grind sector on the 7th encouraging you to stop chasing waterfalls and find more sweetness in the day to day. Whether it’s waking up an hour earlier to get some “me time” before work or closing out each day with a long walk in the park, it’s easier than you think to find some calm.

This week’s mantra: “I choose simplicity.”

Though last week’s eclipse brought some tough revelations, don’t wallow in what’s lost for too long, Pisces. Venus moves into Cancer and your romance sector on the 7th bringing some much-needed good vibes to your dating life. For the next few weeks, you’re more likely than usual to find someone you really like (or at least really want to make out with) so make yourself available!

This week’s mantra: “I’m a catch!”
