It’s not just about where you’re going, Aries, but how you feel about the journey itself. On Saturday, transformative Pluto turns retrograde in your professional sector until October 4, opening up a five-month window to reflect on your career trajectory. It’s essential for your ardent sign to feel connected to what you do and to know that your efforts matter. This is your golden opportunity to make any necessary course corrections and strengthen your connections to the influencers you know. Having friends in high places is an excellent shortcut to the top! Sunday’s Sun-Uranus mashup helps you improve your fiscal fitness—but that means actually sitting down and crunching some numbers. This may not be your favorite activity, but burying your head in the sand will not balance your books. Start by getting real about your status and then play “bad cop” with yourself about where you could tighten your belt. In addition to trimming expenses, think about how you can rake in more moolah through a side hustle or freelance work. See the full week >
Examine your beliefs, Bull. On Saturday, transformational Pluto switches gears and shifts into retrograde mode, backing up through your philosophical ninth house until October 4. You need your rituals and routines to stay grounded, but don’t get so attached to these habits that you close your mind to opportunities that can help you grow and expand. Over the next five months, a personal discovery workshop, certification program or spiritual practice could add to the quality of your life. You say you want a revolution? Your request might be granted on Sunday, Bull—but be careful what you wish for! The winds of change are at gale-force levels as the Sun and unpredictable Uranus hold their annual summit meeting in Taurus and your first house of identity. You’re not one to suppress your own needs on a regular basis, but what have you been keeping at a simmer on the back burner? That’s the thing to turn the heat up on. Don’t be afraid to be a little outrageous. You could create something truly iconic. See the full week >
Plunge below the surface this Saturday as penetrating Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn and your esoteric eighth house until October 4. Life’s mystical and seductive elements have always fascinated you, possibly to the point of obsession. One warning: Pluto’s retrograde can mask people’s true intentions, so don’t take things at face value—no matter how adorably chiseled that face may be when it shows up on a video chat. Pace yourself to avoid a romantic misstep—or simply to keep things hot! Sunday marks a rare and potent cosmic concord, but it’s up to you to take advantage of it. The ego-driven Sun meets up with radical Uranus in Taurus, your twelfth house of the unconscious and healing. If you’re ready to face an old wound or negative behavior pattern, the stars offer extra incentive to unpack these. Make sure you have lots of support around you (maybe a therapist who does Telehealth sessions) since these kinds of issues are like blind spots and Achilles heels rolled into one! Pay attention to your dreams: Psychic messages could come through. See the full week >
There’s no such thing as being “a little bit” committed in a relationship, Cancer—and your security-oriented sign has never been interested in half measures anyway. On Saturday, intensifier Pluto turns retrograde in your seventh house of partnerships until October 4, further underscoring this. You need a reliable, consistent—and of course wildly romantic—mate, not a charming narcissist who never calls or comes through with reliable frequency. To get your needs met, you have to express them, not deny them or hide in your crab shell in an attempt to avoid conflict. Attached? Allow yourself to show more vulnerability this weekend. It’s the glue that will keep you bonded. On Sunday, you’ll take social networking to a whole new level as the Sun dances its annual do-si-do with radical Uranus in Taurus and your eleventh house of group activity. This is the planet of humanity, innovation and technology, and that means social distancing does not have to stand in the way of a lively gathering. Fire up the webcams and bring your favorite people together on-screen for a multiplayer game or a watch party. Good humor is a must! See the full week >
Your magnanimous spirit could lead you in a deeper direction starting Saturday as metamorphic Pluto shifts into its annual retrograde in your sixth house of work and service. Until October 4, you won’t find fulfillment in superficial connections or activities that don’t have an impact. No, we’re not saying you have to quit your day job (especially not in these times!), but if it’s not feeding your soul, find a supplemental way of giving back, perhaps helping neighbors who were hit hard by job losses. Retrograde Pluto helps you refine and redefine, so if you’re looking for deeper satisfaction with your own work, think about what it would take to get you jazzed about your job again. This energy continues on Sunday as the luminous Sun forms its annual alliance with transformational Uranus in Taurus, your tenth house of career ambition and success. With Uranus in the picture, innovative ideas flow in a mile a minute. Explore ways that you can use technology to boost your income or level up the job you do. See the full week >
Saturday’s stars churn up passion with a side of drama as mystical, penetrating Pluto turns retrograde in your romantic fifth house. During this backspin, which lasts until October 4, you might fall head over heels with someone new (even if you haven’t met face-to-face)—or fall BACK in love with your sweetie or an ex. You could also find yourself running hot and cold with an old paramour who never quite disappeared. Whatever happens, it could get intense. If you’re willing to follow your passions wherever they lead, you can reach a far deeper level of intimacy than you ever dreamed possible. On Sunday, the life-giving Sun forms its annual alignment with unbridled Uranus in Taurus in your ninth house of expansion and adventure. Being cautious is one thing, Virgo, but are you limiting yourself in the process? Your mind will be wide open when it comes to anything new. Comfort zone, what’s that?! You might even check out a new philosophy or spiritual creed. Don’t stress about the “obligations.” The point is to sample and explore, not sign up for the lifetime membership…at least not this weekend. See the full week >
Home and family are spotlighted this Saturday as intensifier Pluto turns retrograde in your domestic fourth house until October 4. Relationships may grow stronger, but watch out for too much dependency. Leaning on loved ones or being there for them in their time of need is fine, but if they’re not able to make a decision without texting you 50 times, draw a line in the sand. Nudge those baby birds out of the nest—or sprout your own wings if you’re the one who’s been afraid to fly. Your love life swerves into highly seductive terrain this Sunday as the evolutionary Sun hooks up with revolutionary Uranus in Taurus and your eighth house of intimacy and eroticism. Couples can take a deeper dive into some uncharted waters during this transit. As long as you’re both cool with the exploration, there’s no reason NOT to go there. Single Libras should widen their search parameters and stay open to chatting with people from different parts of the world. (At this point, if they live farther than your front door, they are “long-distance” anyway.) When it’s safe to travel again, you might have a romantic journey to book! See the full week >
This Saturday, your ruler, potent Pluto, flips retrograde in your communication corner. During this annual backspin, which lasts until October 4, your words will pack a punch (and maybe a sting). Think EXTRA carefully before unleashing your “honest feelings.” Once you utter something, you can’t un-say it, so before you do irreparable damage to a friendship, consider its impact. The next five months offer the chance to reflect on how you use language to gain power. If you want to make a change, the transformational planet can help. On Sunday, someone you consider a partner—a lover, colleague or creative collaborator—may catch you off-guard with an idea. It’s “one of those days” as the Sun slams into capricious Uranus in Taurus and activates your seventh house of one-on-one relationships. This person may have gotten some big news themselves that involves you. Or your S.O. might have a romantic candlelit dinner prepared—with a very special bottle waiting to be uncorked. Even if the events of the day are unnerving at first, sit tight. There’s sure to be a silver lining! See the full week >
Your finances come into sharp focus on Saturday as shrewd Pluto turns retrograde in your money zone. This backspin, which lasts until October 4, helps you transcend reflexive spending habits and redefine your true values. Set a few goals for the rest of the year, then let them inspire you to become even more mindful of your cash flow. If you need to refinance or negotiate a new payment arrangement, don’t stall. The sooner you get that paperwork or conversation going, the better. On Sunday, swap out your third latte for a calming herbal tea. You’ve got a lot on your plate and can’t risk having the jitters. You’ll need to stay on your game and present a calm, cool front. That could be a little challenging since the Sun is entangled with frenetic Uranus. This might heap on more stress than usual and prompt you to do something without fully thinking it through. Ground yourself before any major interactions and don’t let little comments blow you off-course. See the full week >
No one holds it together better than you, Capricorn—but what about those other parts of your personality that you don’t like to show? They might emerge of their own accord starting this Saturday, when penetrating, fearless Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn and your first house of self-expression until October 4. Creativity and idealism aren’t detriments: They’re your true treasures! Over these coming five months, experiment with letting more of your unique self shine through instead of trying to be a steel magnolia. On Sunday, the life-giving Sun syncs up with transformational Uranus in Taurus and your fifth house of lust, originality and romance. Single? You could swipe right on someone whose conversational skills match their thirst-inducing photos. Even if this doesn’t turn into a keeper relationship, it will open any jammed floodgates! Already found your special someone? Keep yourselves engaged with a creative project, whether you’re building raised beds for a vegetable garden or trying out some new moves on your California King.

On Saturday, cathartic Pluto kicks off a five-month retrograde in your twelfth house of introspection and endings. This healing journey can offer some fresh perspectives on your life. Between now and October 4, you may start to notice how a lot of what you manifest in your outer world is a direct reflection of your inner landscape. Or that the only way to make lasting change is by going inward. This is a huge opportunity to get to the root of a recurring problem—by learning to dance with your own shadow! You’re ready and able to make some big changes in your personal life on Sunday as the Sun and emancipated Uranus align in your fourth house of home and family. Has an energy vampire infiltrated your inner circle? Examine your own codependent role in the relationship, then phase this person out for good. If it’s a family member you can’t just vanish on, start asserting a new boundary. They may not like it, but if you can give them a good reason why, they’ll have to respect it. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
On Saturday, adrenaline junkie Pluto turns retrograde in your social networking house until October 4. There’s no point in telling you to put up a wall around your huge, empathetic heart. But over the coming five months, you may not have the usual protection against the divas and energy vampires who slip through the cracks. Your best defense is taking a step back and watching the action from a safe distance. And pinpoint a level-headed friend to be your voice of reason when you feel conflicted. On Sunday, when the Sun teams up with transformational Uranus in your third house of ideas and communication, stay open to those aha moments that turn your life around, Pisces. The most innocent-seeming conversation could spark a life-changing “violet light” moment. Don’t edit what pops into your head. Share these potentially million-dollar notions. That said, you might not want to invest your life savings in any of them until you’ve done the appropriate R+D. See the full week >
