Your Horoscope This Week

Venus Australis

This week, it’s time to socialise, stargazers. Libra season is here in full force and the urge to schmooze is real. Venus, the planet of beauty, love, and money, goes retrograde this Friday. She's posted up in Scorpio, inspiring you to revamp (if not completely change) the way that you approach romance, finances, and all things aesthetic.

Meanwhile, the moon is waning all week, encouraging us to tie up loose ends before it reaches its "new" phase on the 8th. If you're feeling a little more withdrawn and reflective, this lunar activity could be the cause. Don't force yourself to go out if you'd rather stay in — responding to your personal needs before anything else is the name of the game this week.

March 21 to April 19

Keep an eye on your finances this week, Aries. Venus, your personal planet of love and money, goes retrograde this Friday. Prepare for the change by conserving your assets, because Libra season and its inclination for shiny things will work against this vibe. Libra is all about switching up your wardrobe, spending extravagant nights out, and splurging as much as the next person.

Remind yourself that you don’t need to keep up with the Joneses to feel fulfilled — you've got a good sense of where your resources ought to go and, for the record, you're already cute as heck. Ruminate on how you view beauty and what that means on a cash front. If you need to get some retail therapy, limit yourself to one piece or take a dive into the back of your wardrobe. You never know what gems are hiding in there.

April 20 to May 20

This week is all about love and what that means to you, Taurus. Now that Pluto, your personal love planet, is direct, you'll be in the mood to reflect on how platonic love factors into your life. Since last April (when Pluto's retrograde began), what have you learned about your needs for companionship?

Single or involved, you’ll be able to navigate encounters with loved ones with ease this week. Take advantage of these vibes and take your favourite people out on the town. On Friday, your ruling planet, Venus, takes a much-needed retrograde. While Pluto has your friendships covered, Venus will urge you to take a longer look at your romantic partnerships. If you’re single, this is a great time to get to figure out what you really want out of life — try flying solo and worry about your co-pilot later.

May 21 to June 20

The sun is coming through to give you a reprieve from work, Gemini. He'll keep your fifth house of creativity lit up from within this week, reminding you to use your sense of invention for play. Linking up with your favourite collaborators and partners in crime will feel easy-breezy.

When you’re not out on the town, make time to listen to your innermost needs and have fun on your own. Friends are fantastic, but we all need a little downtime to experience the world and gather stories. Your financial planetary ruler, the moon, wanes all week while you check the final boxes on your to-do list. Get organised for your next big project before the new moon on the 8th.

June 21 to July 22

This week is all about healing for you, Cancer. You’re a natural caretaker who loves supporting others, but who is taking care of you? The sun makes your self-care mission clear this week while he illuminates your fourth house of home and family. You may want to resist the idea that all Cancers are homebodies, but deep down you know that, without your comfort zone, you feel a little adrift. Spend as much time at home as you wish — and invite your dearest friends over for a quiet Friday night in.

Your career planet Mars kept you feeling riled up at work all summer, but now that autumn is here all you want to do is nest. Don’t fight it. He’s travelling through your eighth house of regeneration, urging you to nix what isn’t working and move forward to bigger and better things.

July 23 to August 22

We know that you love your own solar season Leo, but Libra season offers you a unique opportunity to rub elbows with all of your favourite people. You’re the life of the party, so this highly social time of year suits you perfectly. Don't shy away from a chance to command the room.

Here's a bit of timely advice, Leo: You can do anything, but you can’t do everything. If you're hung up on work this week, try taking a closer look at what's been working for you and what hasn’t — and don't stress if that means slowing down. This is a great way to enhance your listening skills. Ask for feedback and let it guide you. Pluto, your planet of home and family is now direct. If you can swing it, try not to talk too much about work and spend time with the ones you love instead. They'll give you the perspective you need.

August 23 to September 22

You’re riding high this week, Virgo! Action planet Mars is swinging through your house of health, giving you the oomph you need to go beyond your comfort zone. Soak up the remaining days of warm weather by exploring nature, going for a hike, or even an impromptu camping trip. Is there a sport or activity that you’ve been too nervous to try? Mars will give you the courage you need to move through your fear and into bliss.

You’ll be feeling equally ballsy with your money while Mercury is in your second house of finances. There's nothing wrong with a sensible splurge, but try to check yourself on spending when your money planet, Venus, goes retrograde on Friday. Take pleasure in experiences over material possessions until it goes direct next month.

September 23 to October 22

What a time to be alive, Libra. Your social calendar is filling up faster than you can say "RSVP." The sun is lighting up your sign all week, making you the top banana — and yes, that is an official astrological term. Everyone wants to invite you out, including your romantic interests. The summer may have been an odd time for you, dating-wise, but now that Mars is direct, he’s highlighting more exciting romantic opportunities for you.

If you’re attached, you’ll feel more at ease and adventurous with your partner. Make time to bond one on one, away from distractions, and you’ll be back on track. Your ruling planet, Venus, goes retrograde on Friday, but don’t let that get you down. Spend the week preparing for some hard truths on the weekend. If you’re not feeling it with someone you’ve just met, go with your gut.

October 23 to November 21

If you’ve been looking for some direction, look no further, Scorpio. Your planetary ruler, Pluto, is finally direct after more than five months. This course correction will give you the clarity you need to move forward for the next six months.

Although he’s small and very far away, Pluto is a planet of intense change for you. What did you learn since last April that you didn't feel comfortable acting on until now? Use this energy wisely and tap into your potential. Venus, your planet of love, goes retrograde on Friday. Lucky for you, this retrograde is anything but a bummer. Since Venus is posted up in your sign, her placement will actually help you make progress. Have patience and trust that you’re on the right path.

November 22 to December 21

Sometimes we forget about our inner selves, Sag, and that's where we find you this week. The universe is calling on you to show your imagination, intuition, spiritual side some love. To kick off the week, Pluto, your ruling planet of spirituality, is direct. The dwarf planet is ready to help create waves in your life that will shape your perspective. In turn, your behaviour and actions may change for the better, too.

While Pluto clarifies your sense of faith this week, Jupiter will urge you to own that sense. From where he is in your 12th house of spirituality, Jupiter will ask you: Who do you want to become? How can you show your hidden self to others? Venus starts its retrograde on Friday, affecting your health and career sectors. You'll be well served to find activities that marry work and play.

December 22 to January 19

No one can resist you this week, Capricorn! Venus has been camped out in your 11th house of BFFs, lending you some of her most charming qualities. Everyone is going to be down to clown this Libra season, so take advantage and tear it up for once.

Did you know that Venus also rules your career zone? In addition to your hard-working nature, she helps you to sparkle at the office. Venus goes retrograde on Friday, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Keep busy by practicing active listening instead of reactive problem-solving. Even the most intrepid Capricorns need slow down every so often. Besides, ever since Mars has gone direct, you've been feeling more balanced at home — why not spend some time feathering your nest this week?

January 20 to February 18

We’ve got excellent news week, Aquarius. Your career planet, Pluto, is finally direct after nearly six months! The planet of rebirth is fueling your fire at work, and you’re ready to put the lessons that you learned during his retrograde period into action.

This month, you’ll find your own personal cheerleaders in Venus and Jupiter. These two are spending October together in your 10th house of social status. Soon enough, you’ll be mingling with people who can help create positive changes in your career path. So, to prepare for this high-profile schmoozing, get rid of those dog-eared business cards and practice your networking skills. Sometimes you only need one person to vouch for your dream. Get ready to find them.

February 19 to March 20

This week, your fellow water sign, Scorpio, is lending you their luck, Pisces. Tap into your mysterious side and see where it takes you. Mars, your financial planet, has been hanging out in thoughtful Aquarius, turning your thoughts away from cash itself and toward how you're acquiring it.

You’ve been squeezing every single earning opportunity that comes your way, but Aquarius wants you to be a little more choosy. Listen to your intuition before moving forward with any business dealings. Doing so may mean missing out on some dough right now, but it could save you in the long run.
