Fall energy is picking up, and you might be finding both your social and work calendar are a bit more packed than usual. Taking time to enjoy the season is a must — as is knowing what’s on the horizon astrologically.
A Pisces moon is coming our way this weekend, and with Venus still hanging out in retrograde, you might be feeling a bit pulled back by past romantic encounters. To better understand what’s in store, here are this week’s love horoscopes by expert astrologer Christian Klausner.
Aries (March 21-April 19):
You’ve got plenty of gusto this week, dear Aries. You’ll easily be impressing friends and family for a while, with lively wit and quick ideas, but you’re much better off channeling this vigor of yours into larger pursuits—into your deeper dreams and aspirations. Even if it means locking yourself in your room or office for a bit (which might feel totally counter to the current social momentum taking place) until you’ve added that next piece needed to further your own personal creative work, your ‘gusto batteries’ will find themselves recharged this week. In other words, do something for yourself; listen to your intuition and be fine with going off alone. Simply entertaining others with your heightened zeal won’t be enough to leave a lasting feeling of joy this week.
Taurus (April 20-May 20):
Are you feeling polarized yet, Taurus? There is so much happening in your opposite sign Scorpio, and everything which happens in Scorpio definitely affects Taurus, and vice versa (such as this Venus retrograde in Scorpio). This is magnetically drawing you to gaze in the direction of something very polarizing to you—that is, it draws something up and out of you. Whether its hate or love, desire or repulsion, a person or a new job, your intense emotions and growing determination can help clarify what you need this week. Move in the direction of what you want by making good use of your attention; whatever you look at long enough will begin to grow. And then, having centered your gaze upon what you want, feel free to take action on it this week.
Gemini (May 21-June 20):
There’s a lot reaching you on mental planes lately! There’s always plenty to take in, but this could be the week where it pays off to ask yourself how you can simplify. In cleaning, clarifying, and clearing out your space (whether its your headspace or your physical environment), really strip down to the bare essentials if you can. This week is about the redecoration of your life through mostly getting rid of the old objects (or mental inconveniences) that take up so much space. Your planet Mercury is perfectly conjoined with retrograde Venus at the start of this week. Your potential to create beauty this week is magnificent, and it’s manifesting through your ability to keep it simple.
Cancer (June 21-July 22):
Much has been in sympathy with you in the zodiac lately, dear Cancer. The planetary energy known as the element Water is continuing to build in the next few weeks, and this brings out your natural strengths of feeling and intuition. As sensitivities increase, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to sow seeds of healing in others, if you look for them. This week is all about using your speech as a proactive force to create change. The course of the change will depend upon the use of your creative word this week, and the turning points you initiate with your language. Keep your eyes open for ways to be helpful, and you’ll find them, and this will turn the tide to be ever more in your favor.
Leo (July 23-August 22):
This week is riddled with activity, but you may be able to hold a space for others that gives them rest from their anxiety. The winds of change blow in, but you seem unmoved, and others may find shelter in your presence. If you’re feeling generous with your time, there’s a lot of good you can do simply by visiting with others, particularly your loved ones. But beware of those who would entice you to play too much hooky and put off what you feel needs to be done this week. This is the season for working together with others, and sometimes the simple offering of being a listening ear for another is all the help that’s needed to bring others, and oneself, to that next level of transformation.
Virgo (August 23-September 22):
You’re peeling back those layers of your mind; are you liking what you find? It’s as though reality is consenting to being molded by you more and more, but you’re also being asked to head deeper into the darker caves of your mentality. The further you venture outside, the more something is creeping up within. But don’t worry, it’s probably just what you had for lunch. Or it’s the fear of your own power. Either way, it’ll pass as long as you remain focused on the health of your vehicle, and stay centered on your own wellbeing. This is a good week to be aware of your limits, to respect them, and to grow along steadily, without rush.
Libra (September 23-October 22):
This week affords plenty of opportunity to find new ways of enjoying yourself creatively and socially, but there may be a growing need to feel needed, to know that you are useful, and to put your skills into action. This is a week to have confidence in yourself, but to remember that haste makes waste; there is no need to jump into anything that doesn’t feel right. Trust your feelings, and get back into your body; take some time to ground your feet upon the earth and get in touch with what feels real to you. The most powerful thing you can do now is to ground your energy and find a deep stability within the core of yourself.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21):
A change of scenery may be in order now, but don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity which is afforded to you: to see that, though the outer world changes, it is the inner world of your thoughts and feelings which truly are in need of your attention. This Venus retrograde in Scorpio is bringing the inner and outer to a state of relative harmony, so that you can know more experientially how one affects the other. Here’s something great: you have all the power, because however you choose to respond to your environment is entirely up to you. As the Sun begins to enter your sign after this week, the soul lessons will be all about how you can more intensely feel what is truly yours all your life; namely, your thoughts, your mental environment, and your capacity to respond to life however you choose. This is a week where your habitual responses can undergo a renewal through your newfound wisdom.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21):
The planets have helped to facilitate your inward journeys so that you’re able to explore your inward terrain with increased willingness and courage as of late. Keep going, dear Sagittarius, because the momentum is working with you this week to find even deeper insights, answers, and inner keys as to who you really are. This week favors all things related to meditation, journaling, inner work, contemplating, and quiet times with good books under the shade of trees. Soon enough, your planet Jupiter will enter your sign (November 8) and things will widen out, open up, and you’ll be plenty busy. If you can afford some alone time, this is the week to give it to yourself.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19):
This is a great time to start sharing more of yourself, dear Capricorn. You’ll be motivated and inspired to take new action upon your projects if you share what you currently have with your closest friends. The new creative spark that you need may be found in taking a night off and going out with friends, and in sharing your dreams and visions with those who have like minds. Ideas are likely to bounce around with some rapidity, so have a pen and paper handy to write down those golden ones that come to you in moments of social activity. It could be something simple that someone says that provides that missing piece of information you didn’t know you needed. This is a great week to socialize, but keep your highest version of yourself in mind.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18):
With Mars continuing through your sign, you may be feeling a one-pointed enthusiasm building up within you to accomplish or immerse yourself in the experience of something. With Venus retrograding in your sector of career and vocation, you may be analyzing your creative direction with more intensity and determination now. Whatever offers you more excitement and livens your spirit is worth being sought. This could be a time for taking up new skills or polishing old ones that were forgotten. You’re in need of some avenue through which you can channel your creativity, and it will likely be found through following your joy.
Pisces (February 19-March 20):
Your mind is particularly open this week, dear Pisces, and for that reason, new experiences will find their way to you with ease. The keynote of your week is expansion, and you can grow beyond your difficulties rather quickly by employing an attitude of childlike wonder and open acceptance. Your receptive mind is liable to be impressed in a lasting way, so surround yourself with profound individuals, thought-provoking books, and inspiring sources of knowledge to ensure you get the most out of this week. Entertaining those who are less than positive to your mental development should be reconsidered; it would be better to make new friends, as all that is new and fresh will benefit you this week.
