Week of April 5April 11

ARIES (March 21 – April 19) Curb that impulsive behavior, Aries! You’re so close to the finish line. Mercury has been retrograde in your sign since last month, leaving you feeling how most of America feels right now waiting impatiently for Khloe Kardashian to give birth already. (Can we all admit that this is the longest pregnant ever?) Patience will be tested this week. My advice: think before you speak, don’t put a cup of water next to your brand new laptop, delete your dating apps until next weekend. Go for the au natural lifestyle, re: Thoreau.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) You’re probably wondering when I’ll bring the news about more money in the bank, but I’m here to report that this month’s focus is solely on your sweetheart. Or, potential new beau. I know, it’s hard to believe that love even exists at all after Jenna and Channing Tatum’s devastating split. But Venus, planet of love and luxury and your ruling star, is in your sign. Mark April 10 as an extra romantic evening—you could finally have the guts to drop down on one knee, or maybe you and bae will finally agree on a Netflix show that you both like. Either way: heaven sent.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) It’s time to catch up, Gemini. You may be beyond exhausted from biting your tongue all month while Mercury, your ruling planet, has been retrograde. But things are about to look up. This retrograde heralds news from old friends far and widemark April 10 on your calendar to grab drinks with an old coworker. For you, often times, distance doesn’t make your heart grow fonder, it makes it forget. This catch-up is long overdue, and a friendship you won’t want to part with just yet.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22) Spa day, anyone? You’re overdue for a little self-carelike your week has almost been as shitty as Mark Zuckerberg’s. You’re stressed the eff out. We get it. There’s a lot going on in the stars to support your side-eye. Luckily, Venus in Taurus will have you prioritizing your needs this week. Soon enough you’ll be more relaxed that Scott Disick on a yacht. Scheduling a massage or a pedicure could be a game-changer when it comes to getting out of that rut. Your boss and coworkers will sure appreciate it.

LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22) While you might think you have the natural charisma to become an overnight influencer, dear Leo, that’s just not possible. Guess who’s taking a few steps back? Saturn in your tenth house of professional achievements. While you’d just love for all of your dreams to come true overnight, that’s just not how the universe works. Saturn arrives with structure and a little slowdown. Pace yourself and make an actionable plan for a creative project. And most importantly: Don’t have a melodramatic meltdown if you don’t hit 100,000 followers in one month.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Sometimes a little romance can go a long way, Virgo. And with Venus and Mars teaming up on April 10, you’ll be channeling the heart-eyed emoji. You know what could add to this extra-stellar meet up? Some travel. Take the time to book a last minute getaway with your beloved. Single? Try putting yourself out there and try a new local haunt. A change of scenery could have you locking eyes with an unforgettable soul connection.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) Bingewatching more episodes of Hoarders, Libra? Perfect timing! This quarter moon in Capricorn on April 9 lands in your domestic fourth house. It’s time to go through all of your things and finally let go. Do you really need your textbooks from high school? Sure, you’re an intellectual, but if you have more bookshelves than space in your home that’s really only going to cramp your style. The gift of giving might have you feeling like Mother Teresa after a Goodwill trip.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Get on the same page, Scorpio! Venus in Taurus, your opposite sign, has you yearning to bring up unresolved issues. Issues is a strong word, though. This isn’t necessarily a bad omen. Maybe it’s time to finally tell bae how it really makes you feel when he or she doesn’t go grocery shopping with you. Anything you’ve been harboring? (Most likely, um, yes.) Let it come to the surface. A little word vomit can work wonders for the soul.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) Overspending much, Sagittarius? If you just went HAM with your credit card and splurged on some seriously cute clothes, I’m not here to judge you. I am here to tell you it’s time to look at your finances and cut corners where you can. The stars are aligning to get your finances in check. Do you really need Tinder Plus? When’s the last time you actually used your Hulu account? Deactivate and repeat. Your checking account will thank you later.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) You’re magnetic this week, Capricorn. Venus in sensual Taurus and this quarter moon in your sign are teaming up to lock all eyes on you. Feeling flirty? Go out and mingle on April 8. I’m not saying this will lead to longterm love, but oh does it feel good to be admired. Only caveat: You’ll be so impressive to anyone you set your sights on, so let your expectations be known. If you’re looking to settle down, be upfront, but if you’re just looking for someone to make out with and tag in memes, best to be clear right away.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Let it go, Aquarius. The quarter moon in Capricorn on April 9 lands in your 12th house of closure and healing. Do you have unfinished business to attend to? Start a conversation with bae that didn’t end well? Now’s the time to lay it all out on the table. Close this cycle of unhealthy behavior for good and embrace a new beginning.

PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20) Did someone say block party, Pisces? Venus and Saturn are syncing up on April 8 to help you hit the town. Socializing will be a priority. You’ve got huge plans on your mind, and in order to formulate next steps, you need to network. You never know who will be at that local open mic or poetry slam. Text a few friends beforehand and get some plans in motion.
