With Jupiter in Pisces bringing the optimism, and the sun in Gemini delivering major banter, the skies are holding a sign that says, “Yes, you can!” this week. It’s all fun and Prosecco, and things could definitely get loose (especially after 21 May AEST). With confidence levels soaring (21 May AEST), creative ideas will be coming in hot, but actually putting them into words could be tricky. Before the week is out you may be planning to launch a podcast, start a fashion line and open a bar. Deciding what to tackle first will be your greatest challenge – still, it’s a fun problem to have.

ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19) AND ARIES RISING

The perkier vibes may feel like a breath of fresh air after the plodding pace of Taurus season but even Aries have their limits. Beware the tendency to overlook the finer details and find yourself in a muddle towards the end of the week where you could easily be left overcommitting and/or underdelivering.

TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20) AND TAURUS RISING

What you want to do next, work-wise, may have been keeping you up most of this year. The good news is, this week, you might sleep a little better as a new contact or opportunity presents itself. Stay optimistic and open to the idea that this could be the start of something long-term.

GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20) AND GEMINI RISING

You’ll be walking on sunshine this week with the easy, breezy pace of your home season putting a little extra pep in your step. Towards the end of the week, you could be feeling invincible, especially at work. Enjoy the buzz but before you sign anything, make sure you’ve triple checked the fine print.

CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22) AND CANCER RISING

You have one job, and one job only this week: take a break. While everyone around you is high on Gemini juice, your stars are sending you squarely to the self-care corner. You can’t help but absorb everyone else’s stuff, and the frantic pace of this week could be too much. Sometimes a seclusion is your only form of self-preservation.

LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22) AND LEO RISING

There’s the potential for a breakthrough when it comes to love early this week. Whether it’s a set-up you didn’t expect to actually work out, or finding the time to reconnect with your partner after a bit of a dry patch, there’s space for something fun and spontaneous to unfold.

VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22) AND VIRGO RISING

It’s nothing but work this week…but in a good way. An introduction or opportunity could spark the beginning of something exciting. Later in the week, your confidence levels will be through the roof (which on a Virgo terms, is still picture of low-key refinement). Just be sure to fact check anything that seems too good to be true.

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22) AND LIBRA RISING

A roadblock that’s felt like a huge handbrake all year – especially around creativity – could come unstuck this week. Stay open to introductions, especially through friends, that could clear the way for you to realise long term goals. You’ll feel like you can finally exhale once the sun moves into Gemini (20 May GMT, 21 May AEST)!

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21) AND SCORPIO RISING

The frenetic mood this week could  be energising… or it could also be a little triggering. What some see as inspired, you may find erratic. If it all feels too much, don’t be afraid to disconnect and lay low. Getting lost in a creative project is the perfect release, but the temptation to fall into a bottle of Malbec, especially from Friday onwards, will be real.

SAGITTARIUS  (NOVEMBER 22 – SEPTEMBER 21) AND SAGITTARIUS RISING

You may as well change your bio to ‘take a number’ because you’re hot property this week. With the sun setting your love live on fire, there’s an excitement and confidence making things very interesting. If you’re single, stay open to introductions, especially close to home, literally (think: new hot neighbour who’s just moved in).

CAPRICORN  (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19) AND CAPRICORN RISING

If cash worries have been weighing heavily for a while, you could feel a little less stuck this week. A new work opportunity or side-hustle could bring in some extra income. Meanwhile productivity levels are back to your usual super human levels by the end of the week, which while exhausting for most, will feel strangely comforting.

AQUARIUS  (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18) AND AQUARIUS RISING

Someone, somewhere is popping a bottle this week, and chances are it’s an Aquarius. The grinding pressure of the past four weeks should subside and the relief will be palpable. Enjoy the change and give yourself permission to escape. Plan a weekend away or a staycation.

PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20) AND PISCES RISING

You’re usually the one doing the caring, but a family member could help you move past something that’s been weighing you down early in the week (if you let them). Accept help if you need it, but be mindful there could be some crossed wires from Thursday onwards. Once Gemini season kicks (20 May GMT, 21 May AEST) off you’ll feel more in-the-flow than you have in months. Enjoy!
