As Tuesday brings together Venus (planet of socializing) and Saturn (planet of responsibility) at an awkward angle, people might relish some alone time here. Moods might not be as amicable, but this aspect can be good for business.
Midweek, Mercury (planet of communication) merges with Uranus (planet of rebellion) and the sun sextiles Neptune (planet of illusion), so look for people to be both excitable and laid-back. Relationships might come to the fore on Thursday, when there could be some excitement—even obsession—about a current bond. (If you need a little help in this area, a love tarot reading might do the trick.)

Finally, Saturn (which, by the way is retrograde now) forges a positive angle with the sun on Saturday, which can indicate progress on to-do lists. This could be a very productive day!
Here’s how the planets will affect your sign this week.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
As Mercury moves into Taurus, your finances will be highlighted, and you’ll even be inspired to think a little more rationally about how to organize them. (Toning down your Aries fire isn’t always easy, so take advantage!) You might encounter a problem with higher-ups at work around mid-week—try to compromise.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Mercury enters your sign early this week which has you feeling inspired to link up with others who could help make your dreams happen. This week will focus heavily on what’s weighing you down. If you’re having doubts about something, open up. Lastly, don’t let Mars in your shopping zone this weekend make you privy to impulsive buys.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Don’t get too spontaneous this week, Gemini. You might need to wait out a situation before deciding on a course of action—and it’ll be for the better. As Mercury moves into Taurus in your spiritual section on Monday, don’t ignore your intuition. It can help here. Finally, as Venus travels in your social sector, this could be a great week for rejuvenating old relationships.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Sweet Cancer, you’ll be blessed with some enlightenment about how a certain relationship is weighing you down. You may also come across some issues with someone regarding your next moves in a goal or ambition of yours. Be patient with them, they’ll come around. Spending time with friends will keep your spirits high.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
This week, ask yourself, “What really makes me happy?” If you’re putting in more time than necessary for something that isn’t serving you, then why do it? If this is over a relationship, it may be that it’s time for a break. Later in the week, you might be presented with a unique opportunity. Let the idea sit for a little before deciding on a course of action, Leo.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Mars is heightened in your chart right now, which means: Now is the time to act. Take advantage of every opportunity, Virgo! This is especially true as Mercury aligns with Uranus, possibly coming up with a deal that might be too hard to pass up. In terms of romance, take things slow this week—change (for the better) is on the horizon.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Being a balance-loving Libra means you want to fix conflict as soon as it arises. This week, though, will focus on a family issue that’s been long overdue in addressing it. Thankfully, as Mercury moves into more emotional zones for you, you might find the courage to speak your truth. A friend might also have some words to share about your family situation, which you may not want to hear. But take these in stride, and try to see insights behind them.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
This week will dig deep into your relationships. This week you might encounter someone new who you’ll want to pursue further as a friend. Midweek when the sun aspects Neptune, this will be the best time for a date, Scorpio. Over the weekend, you and another person might come up with a million dollar idea that could benefit both of you.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Mercury’s tie with Uranus midweek could provide some answers to some lingering questions you have about a work project. A part of your adventurous Sagittarius side may be wondering whether it’s worth it to pursue a new hobby. Keep thinking about it; there may be a way to work it in. The weekend could bring an opportunity to earn some extra cash.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
An interesting conversation with someone midweek could inspire new outlooks on a problem you’ve been having. In your home sector, Venus is encouraging you to consider what other people are saying about your carefully laid plans. They might be seeing something you’re not, Capricorn.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
This week, as the sun travels through your home zone, you’re mostly concerned about your health. Even though you’re trying to get your routine on, Uranus’s tie with Mercury midweek might bring up some company that you weren’t expecting. You may have a great business idea brewing Aquarius, but now isn’t the time to doubt yourself. Don't listen to those who try to bring you down.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Mercury moves into your sector of thought which could help you start decluttering your space (and your life). As the sun ties with Neptune in Pisces midweek, you could start to feel very spiritual during this period—ready for some serious self-growth. Lastly, your budget isn’t doing so great right now so try not to commit to anything that’ll be even more of a money suck.
