Feeling the heat? This week, the sun takes center stage as Monday’s eclipse creates intense energy around all signs. Meanwhile, the sun shifts from proud and energetic Leo to intelligent, productive Virgo. This gives you that “back to school” feeling that anything can happen, and it’s an amazing time for all signs to try something new, take a chance, and really begin to think about what they want for the next few months. Plus, sober, exacting Saturn is turning direct after many months in retrograde, giving all signs ample motivation to begin to make progress, especially if they feel a project or plan has been stuck. Add expansive Jupiter to the mix, and opportunities are there for the taking. But remember: Intense energy is, well, intense. Self-care, in the form of meditation, exercise, or just time spent with the people you love will go a long way in making the rocky days ahead as smooth and seamless as possible.

Aries Weekly Horoscope 
Rams always appear self-confident, but this summer, you’ve felt a little shaky. Good news: The eclipse will amp up your ambition and show you a clear path to success. If you’ve doubted yourself, events this week could encourage you to move forward with a can-do attitude. All you need to do is make the decision to do so. Once the sun, the symbol of the self, moves into the practical sign of Virgo, you’ll find it easier to create a step-by-step plan that can help you reach your goal. Involve other people! You’ll achieve so much more with their help.

Taurus Weekly Horoscope    
This week, you’re focused on your home—including who you want inhabiting it. If you’re single, the eclipse can help shed clarity on your romantic life. Attached? You may find your energies aligning, as both of you feel the urge to take the next step in your relationship. Now’s the week for Bulls to do what comes naturally and take charge. By taking the lead, even if the first move seems risky, you’re setting the foundation for a powerful and exciting new chapter in your life. And make sure to add in some time to relax. Spending time with friends and family is key, otherwise tensions may skyrocket.

Is love in your stars?

Gemini Weekly Horoscope    
Gemini, now’s the time to start talking up the things you believe in. With a solar eclipse in your sector of communication, you’re unstoppable. From the romance front to your career sector, it’s all systems go, so make sure to go big and get a date, performance review, or high-stakes work meeting on the calendar. Your creative energies are flowing, so finding an outlet, even if it’s just daily updates to your Instagram, is key. You might also find that relationships begin to lighten up over the weeks ahead as Saturn turns direct after many months in its retrograde phase. Phew. Stop second guessing and just enjoy the fact that there is no subtext, and everything truly is going as well as you think it is. 

Cancer Weekly Horoscope
Everyone else is paying attention to the sun, but Crabs are being influenced just as much this week by the moon. With a powerful lunar phase underway, planetary forces are collaborating to push you in a new (and financially lucrative) direction. But in order to succeed, the universe depends on you to show up and put in the work. So, for the next week, get ready to roll up your sleeves, communicate your intentions, and burn some midnight oil to get things done. As the sun moves into meticulous Virgo, you’re homing in on important details. This is key—big success lies in making sure all the little things are handled.

Leo June Weekly Horoscope
Always confident, this week you’re feeling pretty unstoppable, Lions! It’s a great time to go after exactly what you want, but it’s also equally as good a time to choose exactly how you want to spend your time. Only make plans with people who inspire and challenge you, and consider reevaluating relationships that feel draining or otherwise don’t serve you. Finally, the energy surrounding the eclipse may lead you to a new activity or interest you’ve never thought of before—follow your interest where it leads, because it may have a profound impact on your future.

Virgo Weekly Horoscope 
A powerful influence in your spiritual sector hints at the possibility of a new beginning. Are you ready? As the Sun eclipses, then moves into your sign this week, you have a feeling of “anything can happen”—and anything can. It’s exciting, but also scary, so make sure to surround yourself with plenty of people who have your back no matter what. Keep the focus on things you love and are passionate about; when your passion is pushing your choices and decisions, you can’t fail. 

Libra Weekly Horoscope 
Think it’s “just” a happy hour? Think again. This week, with the heightened energy of the solar eclipse, a social encounter has a profound effect on your life, and may very well be a turning point in your career or relationship. As the sun moves to a more secluded sector of your chart, you may find yourself especially introspective as you ask, What’s next? Listen to your intuition for the answers. Finally, pay attention. Put your phone down and listen to conversations, even casual back-and-forths in line at the grocery store can help you home into next steps. 

Scorpio Weekly Horoscope 
This week counts. As the dynamic solar eclipse moves through your sector of ambition, the decisions you make this week will have major repercussions in the months to come. While you may feel like you want to go, go, go, the planets suggest hanging back and taking cautious steps toward the outcome you want. After all, interactive Mercury is still in its retrograde phase, which may cause drama if you aren’t entirely sure of the total picture. But overall, this week is a great one, and you have a lot of glimmering clues into what’s to come in your future.

Sagittarius Weekly Horoscope 
Ambitious Archers are making plans this week, and the eclipse only maximizes your ambition. While you’ve had a pretty intense summer, it seems like everything is coming to a head this week, as the sun continues its move into your sector of career and ambition. And while independent Sags usually excel doing their own thing, the stars say this is not the time to go it alone. Sharing a goal can help you achieve it on a much bigger level, and don’t worry, you’ll still bask in the spotlight. Feeling directionless? It’s time to figure out what excites you and brings you to the next level, and do more of that! A happiness board can help guide you in the right direction, because once you’re on a path, you’re pretty damn unstoppable.

Capricorn Weekly Horoscope 
This week, the eclipse may bring up some heady questions for cautious Capricorns. You may have a vision of what you want your life to be, but this summer, you’ve been mired down by the what-ifs and practicalities of making that change. But this week, the planets are pushing you to make a plan and start on the path you want to be on. A focus on your sector of travel, study, and development holds the ticket. Book a trip, read a book, try a new class, and trust that what you learn will lead you in the right direction. Finally, Capricorns, just take the first step. It’s the hardest one, but so be worth it. 

Aquarius Weekly Horoscope 
This week, expect the sun to help supercharge your relationship sector, where either an established relationship will reach a new level of commitment, or you may find yourself engaging in a serious flirtfest with someone you had never considered. But as this energy surges around your relationships, you may also find yourself second guessing beliefs you held true in the past, or find yourself wondering if a relationship has run its course. Making sure to factor in plenty of solo time to have a heart to heart session with yourself is key for figuring out next steps. 

Pisces Weekly Horoscope 
Feel like you’ve been running in place these past few months? That stops now, Fish. The eclipse helps crank up your motivation and commitment, and you may find yourself finally reaching goals you’ve had in place for months. As the sun enters a more secluded section of your chart, you may finally feel like you have space to breathe, dream, and figure out what you really want out of life. Because, if you dream it, you can achieve it—but first, you have to give yourself the space to dream.
