ARIES (March 21 – April 19) You been thinking big picture, Aries? Makes sense, we’ve got a Mercury-Saturn trine on May 18 that will have you logically processing your next career move. Maybe you want a job that offers catered lunches and has a yoga room, or for fuck’s sake maybe just a 401k. Either way, there’s some celestial momentum to move your career in any direction of your choosing.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20) Something you want to get off your chest, Taurus? Mercury landed in your sign on May 13, and is here to stay until the end of the month. While you’re typically one to keep matter’s of the heart close to your chest, now’s the time to scream it from the mountain tops. What’s been eating away at you inside? Feel like saying “I love you”? Need to apologize for being overly stubborn about something? Bae’s waiting.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20) Get the fuck outta town, Gemini! Mars lands in your ninth house of travel, expansion and philosophical learning on May 16. We don’t have to get too deep about this, though: You’re overdue for some travel. You might have a passionate urge that you can’t ignore to book a trip or dive into a new area of study. The stars are aligned to support any Airbnb accomodations your heart desires.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22) Not everyone likes to be kept on a leash, Cancer. While your overprotectiveness can come off to many compassionate, like-minded signs as a compliment, you might be leaning a little more toward possessive once Mars enters Aquarius. It’s lighting up your eighth house of intimacy, which, while totally sexy, also totally brings out control issues. Take some time to review and reflect. And stop reading your bae’s text messages when he or she is out of the room. It’s not a good look.

LEO (July 23 – Aug. 22) Everything looks and feels better when you’re in love, right Leo? Wrong. Well, at least for this Venus cycle. Venus lands in Cancer, your 12th house of healing, mysticism and closure. You might find yourself knee deep in some romanticized thoughts, but is there actually truth to them? I’m not saying turn your heart to stone, but just be careful of an overactive imagination.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Is it even possible to overcommunicate, Virgo? Spoiler alert: YES. And guess what, you kinda do it all the time. But with the upcoming Mercury-Jupiter opposition on May 23, you’re going to find yourself predisposed to severe word vomitting. It’s great to open up, healthy even. But try to keep a few secrets close to the vest. A little mystery goes a long way.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) Oh my god, Libra! Things are heating up, huh? Sexy and action-packed Mars lands in Aquarius, your passionate fifth house of romance, creativity, and children. If your relationship with bae’s gone a little stale recently, you might find yourselves gettin a little hot n heavy when you least expect it. Use, er, protectionthis cycle also rules fertility.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Working from home, Scorpio? Prepare for some powerful shake-ups when it comes to your home life. Mars is taking a stay in Aquarius until early August, in your fourth house of home and family. During this transit, you might find the need to redefine some boundaries with your loved ones. Or you might slowly, but surely be be predisposed to agoraphobia.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) You’re always getting shade for speaking your mind, Sagittarius, and, like, what the fuck? Truth hurts, but honesty really is the best policy. We’ve got Mars trailblazing through your word vomit, er, communication sector from May 16–August 12. If you’ve taken a stand at work, in your relationships, for a cause, stick by it. You’ll be rewarded for saying exactly what comes to your mind.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) Did that direct deposit just go through, Capricorn? I’ve got the sexiest news to deliver for you: Mars is making a pitstop in Aquarius, your second house of income. That’s right. Work and money are on your mind, and with this passionately fierce planet doing most of the legwork, you’ll feel unstoppable and will be stacking up the cash. While it might feel good to see some extra zeros in your bank account, watch out for burnout. Everyone needs some fun now and then.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Time for guess what, Aquarius, self-care! Venus is making her way into Cancer, your sixth house of routines and wellness. If you’ve been feeling a little unbalanced, it’s time to align your chakras. Making time for yourself is a priority during this transit: indulge in that expensive mani/pedi; rent an Airbnb for a solo trip; visit the kittens at the pet store. Whatever helps you take care of you should be No. 1 on your list.

PISCES (Feb. 19 – March 20) Oh hai, is that romance in the air, Pisces, or is it just all of those scented candles that you have lit? Your love life is about to get a boost thanks to Venus’ stay in Cancer until June 13. If you and yours have had a turbulent start to the year, just know this transit will get you and bae back on track.
