Can Things Get Any Worse? Your 2021 Horoscope Predictions

This year has been nothing short of Earth-shattering, and with good reason. The transits we experienced this year—most notably, Saturn (structure), Pluto (transformation) and Jupiter (expansion) consistently causing contention in Capricorn—were meant to shake us to our very core. Some might say this is uncomfortable. Others might say this is insane. And still, others might say, “give me a f*cking break already.” All of those people are me and my Gemini personalities.

But here’s some good news (cue John Krasinski direct-to-camera look). We’re moving into the Age of Aquarius! Saturn and Jupiter, huge ruling planets for us here on Earth, enter into Aquarius within days of each other this month—making way for their Great Conjunction on the winter solstice, Dec 21st. This massive energy will shift us into the concepts of innovation, connectivity, and welfare for the global community. 

TL;DR: 2021 will be nothing short of revolutionary. Read on to see which area of your life will be destined for growth. Make sure to check both your Sun and your Rising signs* for the utmost accuracy. 

*Your Sun sign is your fundamental identity. It points to your general personality, approach to life, interests, and how you shine. 

*Your Rising sign (or Ascendant) represents how you show up and the direction in which you move through the world. This sign was on the horizon at the time of your birth and therefore sets up your entire chart (which is why accurate birth time is important). It’s arguably a more predictive way to determine what you’ll encounter and how you’ll meet it. 

Aries

Your freedom will come from having absolutely zero limitations on how you’re connecting with the world. This could look like having a much larger purpose to influence great change. I sincerely doubt you’ve been waiting to get in the game, but this year will give you agency to take it global. This could look like getting involved through a non-profit or taking up more space on social media to advocate for something you’re passionate about. We’re all waiting to see what you’re going to start (no pressure). 

Taurus

rooting for you

If 2020 taught you anything, it’s that you can navigate insecurity. You’ve also learned that life is a two-way street, meaning you don’t have to do everything yourself. Recognize where you’ve gotten through de-stabilizing times with a little help from your friends. Next year gives you a great opportunity to take calculated risks to advance your career. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. We’re all rooting for you. 

Gemini

Exploration and communication of the themes that have come to light in the last year will be your goal in 2021. What ultimate truths have you learned? How can you integrate these into your life philosophy? How can you help others understand? The way you communicate these will be uniquely yours, Gemini. Our advice is to make these truths snackable and lighthearted, even if the subject matter is anything but. It’s show and tell time!

Cancer

You’ve certainly had time to be intimate with yourself in 2020. How many sex toys did you buy? Be honest. But in true Cancerian fashion, you likely were more concerned with finding intimacy in a partnership. This year will encourage you to focus on yourself in order to experience true breakthroughs. And no, I’m not just talking about orgasms, but I’m not not talking about orgasms. 

Leo

You’ll experience serious potential for love and partnership next year, Leo. If you’re single, make sure you’re intentionally manifesting your “perfect” partner. And simply saying “I’m manifesting a partner” will not cut it. Visualize the feeling of being with someone, take note, and then ask the universe for some help on the delivery. If you’re in a committed relationship, you’ll experience power-couple vibes. Hello, Bey and Jay.

Virgo

Personal revolution is happening for Virgos in the house of your rulership (6th house) which means you’re receiving double-down energy. This would be the year to feel completely supported in focusing on your health and routines, getting your edge through the use of technology. Oh, and domestic matters will be your bitch, too. So hey, if you’ve been thinking about buying a Peloton, this is your sign. (No, they didn’t pay me to say that.)

Libra

F*ck the establishment, Libra! 2021 has you feeling all sorts of brave, playful and yes, maybe a little rebellious. Will this shock the people around you, since you of all people like to color inside the lines? Sure. Does that really matter? Not in the least. Give yourself permission to take the spotlight, or at least the ring light, and do what makes you happy. 

Scorpio

Mastering family life and maternal instincts will be on your radar next year, Scorpio. This could look like establishing the house rules for everyone in your domain or simply establishing how you’d like your own chosen family to run. Remember that the very nature of family means it’s more of a democracy than a dictatorship, so try your best to be firm, yet accommodating on the issues you could care less about, like where you put the TV. You can’t make every hill the one you’re willing to die on.

Sagittarius

You normally travel the world for inspiration, but this year you’ll be called to learn from your immediate environment, your neighborhood, or simply your closest friends and family. Your new approach will have a well-spring of creative ideas percolating for you all year, and you’ll want to talk to your newfound teachers about them. Take that airplane out of your Instagram bio once and for all, and make an impact in your neighborhood instead, Sagittarius. 

Capricorn

Listen closely, because this one is def going to be music to your ears, Capricorn. Next year holds major earning potential for you. (I can literally hear a collective YES!) All the work you’ve put into your craft will certainly pay off next year, so enjoy watching the stacks rise. That said, try bringing something back into the fold that you scrapped this year for lack of time or expertise. You’ll have more resources to revive it this year. 

Aquarius

It’s your time, Aquarius. You’re THE most equipped for this new age we’re entering, so don’t be surprised if you feel the intrinsic need to step out and lead this revolution. Everyone is catching up to your line of thinking, but we do actually need you to be constantly innovating and moving the needle forward. Your gut will rarely be wrong—just go with it and don’t second-guess it. 

Pisces

Bless my Pisces, always ready to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time. Next year will have you fully embracing who you are, the magical mystery tour that is life. Walk into the unknown the same way most of us walk into Target: willfully blissful and leaving with so much more than we intended to. (Also, not sponsored.)

Time To Go Deep: Weekly Horoscopes July 20-24

Mercury retrograde is officially over and it’s time to go deep with a new moon in Cancer. This watery, emotional energy is affecting everyone differently this week, but there’s one thing we can all count on: unexpectedly crying about an episode of a show you’ve seen one hundred times before. Sometimes the “Dinner Party” episode of The Office just hits different. You’ve been warned.

Aries

This Cancer new moon is shining a lunar light on your home life and finding it shady as f*ck. This week, issues on the home front come to the surface and basically demand to be dealt with. Whether it be a roommate who thinks doing the dishes means lightly splashing them with water or a neighbor who has taken up drumming in quarantine, it’s time to face the issue head-on. It might be awkward in the moment, but you’ll be happier when you’re eating off a clean dish in a quiet bedroom. We promise.

Taurus

Did some misconceptions arise in your life when Mercury was in retrograde? Yeah, that’s what we thought. The Cancer new moon is the perfect time to get back to expressing yourself properly (i.e. not via shady Insta story) and get your communication skills back on track. Quarantine has been hard on everyone, and people are generally forgiving rn so don’t be afraid to message a few coworkers to say “sorry I lost my sh*t on Zoom last week.” They’ll appreciate it, and you’ll feel better.

Gemini

The new moon in Cancer is electrifying your house of work and finances, meaning that now is the perfect time for a fresh start in your career. I mean, 99.9% of all careers are in complete chaos right now, so why not throw out the script and try something new? Your intuition will serve you well here, so don’t resist the urge to change up your priorities. It’s probably right.

Cancer

The new moon is in your sign, Cancer, which can mean a new mission, if you choose to accept it. Keep an eye out for unusual or out-of-the-box opportunities that may present themselves this week, and definitely don’t tune out the voice in the back of your head pushing you to try new things. Unless it tells you to start a podcast. We’re good on those, actually.

Leo

The new moon in Cancer has you going deep, Leo, making this the perfect time to release some sh*t that is holding you back. Moving on is the name of the game this week, whether it be from a sh*tty job, a sh*tty friend, or a sh*tty ex. Basically, anything sh*tty that is keeping you from doing you has got to go. We’ve got enough to deal with with a global pandemic. No need to have a f*ckboy in the equation too.

Virgo

You usually prefer to fly solo (mostly because people can’t get on your level), but this week the new moon in Cancer has you feeling the collaborative vibes. And sure, “collaboration” has taken on a whole new meaning in 2020, but that doesn’t mean the art of teamwork is dead. This week, don’t shy away from asking for help on a project, or reaching out to someone you’ve always wanted to work with. They could end up being the Gayle to your Oprah (bc let’s face it…you’re obviously Oprah.)

Libra

You’re making money moves this week, Libra, unemployment crisis be damned! This is a great week for making decisions regarding your financial future, and for laying the ground work to your success. Allow your ambition to take the wheel this week and follow where it leads you. It could lay the groundwork to your future life as a billionaire mogul.

Scorpio

Your desire for a 2020 summer vacation will come roaring back this week, Scorpio, whether that is actually possible or not. God damn you, inner travel influencer! If a small local getaway is safely possible, pack a bag and get thee to a socially distant beachfront location. If it’s not (aka you live in any major American city), lean into the staycation lifestyle by taking a day off. Did you know you’re allowed to take a vacation day even if the “vacation” is day drinking margaritas in your living room? If you close your eyes, it’s almost like your trip to Ibiza wasn’t canceled. Almost.

Sagittarius

Summer 2020 has been intense for everyone, but no one so much as Sagittarius. You thrive on the fun-loving, fast-traveling, hot, hot, heat of summer so without that…yeah. You’re struggling. This week, Cancer lights up your eighth house of intimacy, meaning that your great summer adventure might finally present itself in the form of a relationship. Don’t ignore the people who pop into your life this week. They could be just the vacation you were looking for.

Capricorn

Pay attention to your ride or dies this week, Capricorn. With the new moon in your house of relationships, the people who show up for you now are the ones deserving of your time and energy. All the rest is just noise. And if that noise can’t even text back in a timely manner? It’s definitely time to delete and move on.

Aquarius

Some me time is in order, Aquarius. You’ve been holding down the fort for everyone in your life, but it’s time to give yourself a little TLC. The Cancer new moon is heightening your need for self-care, including but not limited to: long baths, decadent dinners, DIY face masks, and refusing to answer Rachel’s one hundredth text about how the pandemic is ruining her ability to tan and she doesn’t feel like herself when she’s not tan. You deserve the you time, and Rachel will be fine. Pale, but fine.

Pisces

Lights, camera, Pisces! This week the spotlight is all on you as the Cancer new moon chills in your glam fifth house. Sure, this could bring a little bit of an “all dressed up with nowhere to go” feeling, but hey, that’s what Instagram is for. Feel free to show off your glowing skin and good hair days with abandon on the ‘gram. If people really hate it they can mute you (just like you did to them.)

Riding The Second Wave: Weekend Horoscopes June 26-28

Welcome to Cancer season, where everything’s made up, rules don’t matter, and emotional instability is like, so hot right now. Since Americans have kind of decided that COVID is not a threat anymore (newsflash: it is), maybe you can spend this weekend pressuring your parents to cancel their trip to Florida, or trying to convince your brother that, yes, masks are still a required part of his day-to-day. Hooray for the new normal, guys!

Cancer

It’s all about communication and knowledge this weekend, Cancer. So, communicate that you want pizza and know that with the right attitude, that wish may come true. Saturday is prime time to focus on home and family, so have a socially distanced barbecue with the fam or watch television via Zoom with your mom. She lives for that sh*t.

Leo

Check out your budget, Leo. It’s a good thing to check in with your own finances, and the stars are pressuring you to do just that on Saturday. Time to face facts and admit that, yeah, you bought a lot of stupid sh*t in quarantine. Additionally, the moon in Libra will mean that you’ll be in a good headspace to learn some things, so maybe watch some YouTube videos on how to manage your money or check out r/personalfinance.

Virgo

You’ll be craving some alone time Friday night into Saturday morning, Virgo, so plan accordingly and order an embarrassing amount of takeout to be enjoyed in your very grossest pair of sweats. You’re living your best life. Literally everyone will piss you off this weekend, so just keep that in mind before interacting with other humans.

Libra

Sleep is in the cards this weekend, Libra, so snuggle up, put your phone on silent, and nap like the champ you are. Saturday afternoon and Sunday should be reserved for Zoom gatherings (still a thing) where you can each sit outside, drink, and pretend you’re soaking up each other’s awesomeness in real life.

Scorpio

The moon in Virgo is pushing you to lean on your friends this weekend, so find an outdoor patio and maybe grab some brunch if that’s allowed where you are. Maybe have too many mimosas and get sunburned in honor of being outside again. These are just jumping off points. Use Sunday to relax at home with a good book, that candle you’ve been waiting to burn for a special occasion, and your S.O.

Sagittarius

How are you feeling about your job these days, Sagittarius? Like, are you enjoying working from home or are you completely disillusioned with the whole thing and wondering how you can make six figures while doing nothing? If it’s the latter, update your resume and search around for some side gigs this weekend. Reserve Sunday for mild chores and solitary cooking adventures. The Mars and moon combo will have you feeling super irritable, so it’s best to avoid other human beings.

Capricorn

The planets are all, “have an adventure, Capricorn.” You’re like, “that’s not really socially responsible, though.” With that in mind, have an adventure that’s, you know, allowed. Walk around a different area of your neighborhood, order food from a restaurant that you haven’t tried before, sh*t like that. Saturday night and Sunday you may feel a little anxious and on edge, so it’s best to stick close to home, call your mom, and make her tell you how great you are.

Aquarius

Partnership is the name of the game this weekend, Aquarius. But don’t feel bad if you’re single—literally any activity involving a friend, family member, or coworker is going to go swimmingly, thanks to whatever juju the stars are bringing up. Attack a DIY project, attempt jogging, or make some weird artwork. The moon in Libra on Saturday will have you itching to travel, so maybe start looking into that trip you were supposed to take this summer but had to push back.

Pisces

It’s all about romance this weekend, Pisces. Grab your S.O. and try something different in the bedroom on Friday night. Maybe it’s finally time to break out those fuzzy handcuffs and that lube you ordered when you were drunk. If you’re single, maybe it’s time to wade into that whole dating apps-during-COVID thing and FaceTime a potential mate. Hey, if it goes horribly, you can always fake a bad connection and hang up. Saturday and Sunday are great for joint ventures, so grab a friend (in person or via FaceTime) and split a bottle of wine, come up with a new business idea, both, whatever you’re into.

Aries

It’s all about being healthy af, Aries. The quaran-times have given you a solid opportunity to try some new, health-focused living, like not only living off of iced coffee, yoga (meaning actual yoga and not napping in weird positions), and walking for reasons other than to get to the bar. So go for a bike ride, do some pilates outside, or eat something other than Cheetos this weekend.

Taurus

Fun times, Taurus. You’ll be feeling the need to do something out of the ordinary, so I guess Netflix and sweatpants are off the schedule for once. Maybe you eat lunch outside, try on all the clothes you think don’t fit you anymore, or challenge yourself to eat all the produce in your fridge before it goes bad. It’s all about thinking outside the box.

Gemini

You’re gonna be feeeeelin’ yourself this weekend, Gemini. Don’t be surprised if you’re attracting everyone and everything Friday night. You can’t help it that you’re so popular. Sunday is great for getting over yourself and doing some clean up around your abode. Maybe you can finally address the pile of clothes on “the chair” in your room? Or at least wash the loungewear you’ve been wearing all week.

To Stay In Or Go Out? Weekend Horoscopes January 3-5

Because I have no faith in committing to bettering myself for an entire year, New Year’s resolutions aren’t really my thing, but for those of you who vowed to improve your lives by like, going to the gym and ~traveling,~ you’re probably excited for the first official weekend of 2020. This horoscope is for you guys. If you need some guidance on how to start the new decade, look no further. According to yearly-horoscope.com, “2020 will be a year when all the zodiac signs will be able to take advantage of a new beginning, both in their personal life and financially.” Lol, could this be a little less specific? Can’t wait for what’s to come!

Aries

Aries likes to be number one at everything they do, so you guys are def fans of making New Year’s resolutions, because doing so just gives you an opportunity to meet a goal. Overachievers like you may be annoying as hell to those around you, but you don’t give a f*ck because you’re here to win. This weekend, you’ll spend your days making spreadsheets of your five-year plan and spend your nights telling people about them. You’ll want to get your life on track this weekend so you know what to expect for the year ahead, but don’t spend too much time on this because, if our government has taught us anything, it’s that all plans fall apart rather quickly. Use this opportunity to be a little more adventurous, ya know? Explore a new neighborhood at the very least.

Taurus

From both the internet and my Taurus friends, I’ve learned that Tauruses “enjoy relaxing in serene, bucolic environments surrounded by soft sounds, soothing aromas, and succulent flavors.” Wow, deep. Anyway, even though Tauruses are described like literal babies, they’re nothing if not down for whatever, so take a seat and let your friends do the planning this weekend. Expensive dinner? Sure. Stay in with a bottle of Pinot? Sounds delicious. Go out until 5am? Fine, whatever. Take this time to mute your group chat until someone puts forth a time and place, then just meet everyone there. You do you, Taurus.

Gemini

Geminis are impulsive, nosy, and intelligent creatures who like to know everything about what everyone’s doing. You check everyone’s Instagram stories not because you love them, but rather, because you want to know where everyone is so you can make an educated decision on where you’ll be posted up. Geminis can’t be tied down, so maybe don’t meet up with the guy who spent your whole first date telling you how much you’d love his parents. Stick with Mr. Right Now this weekend, because starting a new decade in a will-we-won’t-we war just doesn’t sound like your cup of tea.

Cancer

Anyone under this sign may claim to be psychic, because Cancers are famous for being able to pick up on various energies. OMG, it’s like they have a fifth sense! I mean, picking up on energies is a fancy way of saying you can read a room, so congratulations on not completely lacking empathy. You’ve been going hard all damn year, so take this weekend to chill with friends. Nothing crazy or expensive. Maybe invite your friends over for a potluck dinner where all you have to provide is the table and your friends bring everything else. 

Leo

Leos are known for being theatrical, and they think of themselves as kings and queens. Honestly, I was born into the wrong sign, I think. Anyway, Leos are happy to be the loudest in the room and love to have all eyes on them. If you’re a Leo, this weekend take your quieter, more subdued friends out on the town where you can drink and dance until you can’t no more. This is your time to start the new year with a f*cking bang, so throw on a blue wig and go to an underground salsa club, or slip into your finest and end up at a 5-star hotel bar, the night is yours to own. 

Virgo

I am a Virgo and I proudly fit into the little box presented to me: Virgos have a deep-rooted presence in the material world. Yeah, sounds about right. Obviously, there are a lot of more down-to-earth qualities Virgos possess, but none that relate to this weekend specifically. Go shopping this weekend. You just got paid, so spend that hard-earned cheddar on that pair of boots you’ve wanted since last summer, then take them for a little walk around your favorite bar. If you’re really feeling yourself then be bold and invite the guy you’ve been seeing for a little while. It’s time for him to finally meet your friends already. 

Libra

It is my personal belief that all Libras change their names to something like Juliana and become yoga instructors, because Libras are obsessed with balance and harmony. Right on, I guess? So start the year on a good note and find your center. Whether that means hot yoga, vegan pizza, and an early night, or a romantic dinner date with your SO, do you. You won’t be persuaded to join your friends for an all-night banger, so maybe just put your phone on do not disturb until the weekend is up. That seems like something Libras would do anyway. 

Scorpio

Scorpios are as passionate as they are emotional, so maybe do yourself a favor and take it easy this weekend. By going out, you’re just setting yourself up to get in a fight with your boyfriend and regret the whole thing the next day. Instead of going out, keep it casual and invite everyone over for wine and cheese. I mean, everyone likes wine and cheese, right? What could go wrong?

Sagittarius

You guys don’t do anything unless you’ll learn something from it. You’d make my dad so proud! You’re pretty much up for anything, so if the crew wants to go out, join them! When you drunkenly text your ex 87 times, you’ll learn a valuable lesson that will keep you on an upward trajectory. You generally don’t regret anything (like, anything) because you’re always on an educational path that is leading you in the right direction. So if you want to crush the last of the bottle, do it!

Capricorn

Capricorn is represented by the sea goat, a mythological creature with the body of a goat and tail of a fish. Wow, swipe right! The significance of the sexy dual-creature situation is that Capricorns are good at navigating physical and emotional realms, which makes you an ideal friend in situations like “What should we do tonight?” You’re the decision-maker and your friends are grateful for you. This weekend, see how you feel before setting the plan in motion. If you want to go out, do it. If you’d rather stay in, your peeps are down. The weekend is your oyster. 

Aquarius

You guys are assertive and independent, so if your friends are all tired from their NYE parties, but you want to go out, you’ll do it. Grab a small group of your friends and head to your favorite bar to see where the night takes you. It may even take you to uncharted territory, but since you’re such an explorer, you’re okay with that. Maybe you’ll even meet someone who strikes your fancy along the way. Sold!

Pisces

Generally, Pisces have a little trouble distinguishing between reality and fantasy, but you don’t really care. Managing expectations is not something at which you’re particularly skilled, but if fantasizing that the sh*tty college bar your friends dragged you to will end with your long-time boyfriend finally proposing, more power to you. You see the best in everything, so you tend to be happy to do whatever the crew wants to do. Just go with the flow and wear something cute, because you never know what’s going to happen!

Where You Should Go On Vacation Based On Your Zodiac Sign

There’s nothing more exhilarating than planning a summer getaway. That is, unless you’re a nomadic Sagittarius or Sagittarius rising who literally spends their entire life looking for reasons to travel, so planning a trip is just another day in the life. Otherwise, looking for the ideal summer destination with the most Instagrammable photo opps is always a thrilling experience. But choosing where to go is the hardest part (aside from actually paying for it, of course). And with summer almost over—I’m not crying, you’re crying—it’s safe to say we all need a getaway, and quick! Here’s where you should go on summer vacation, based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: Asheville, North Carolina

I know what you’re thinking, Aries. “WTF am I going to do in North Carolina, let alone North Carolina in the summertime?” Here’s the deal, firecracker betch: With the sun traveling through your domestic fourth house of home and family during Cancer season, and your fifth house of romance during Leo season, your soul needs one thing and one thing only this summer: a cozy vibe. Asheville, with its vibrant arts scene and amazing food, is just that.

Taurus: A Caribbean Cruise

All aboard, betch. I know you only travel first class, but with the sun blazing through your mobile third house of transportation during Cancer season, and cozy fourth house of home during Leo season, I believe your ideal summer vacay consists of lavish comfort, (obvi) and more than one destination. This is precisely why I suggest a paradise adventure through the Caribbean seas as your best bet.

Gemini: The Bahamas

bahamas

You’re feeing bougie this season, betch. You’re typically not very picky when you’re traveling, but seasons change, and obviously so does your mind. With the sun igniting your comfort-seeking second house of luxury during Cancer season, and your mobile third house of rulership during Leo season, you’re in need of something totally luxe, as long as there’s plenty of variety, of course. So my suggestion is, book yourself a snazzy suite at your fave Bahamian all-inclusive resort. The champagne will be chilled.

Cancer: Rome, Italy

Trevi Fountain Rome

When in Rome. This is your birthday season after all, right? Celebrating all month long is a must, especially since your birthday just so happened to coincide with this crazy eclipse season. Hang on to that excuse while you can. Plus, with the sun blazing through your indulgent second house of money towards the end of the summer, you’ll likely be in the mood to shop ’til you drop. Although, let’s be honest, when are you not? Splurging is your favorite pastime, and Italy will look so good on you.

Leo: The Grand Canyon

Happy Birthday, Leo. Where are you off to next? OK, so maybe summer did kick off on a weird note, but hey, at least you made it this far, right? So here’s my idea, Leo. Since the sun was traveling through your secretive 12th house of all things behind the scenes during Cancer season, and first house of “Look at me!” during your birthday season, I suggest the Grand Canyon. Why? Well, this is a perfect opportunity for reflecting and sight-seeing, and if you wake up in the mood to party, Las Vegas isn’t too far away.

Virgo: Rural Ireland

You’re feeling some type of way this season. Before you decide to take off with a group of friends for the summertime, make sure you keep your options open. With the sun igniting your 11th house of groups during Cancer season, and your secretive 12th house during Leo season, I suggest somewhere that’s both quaint and quiet… like the Irish countryside, for instance. Granted, this might very well cost you a pretty penny, but you know, that I know, that you know all the pictures will be worth it.

Libra: Curacao

Curacao

You’re on top of the world, Libra. Although, I’m not going to lie to you, the sun is totally igniting your career-driven tenth house during Cancer season, so some of you might shift all of your energy towards your career this summer, but it’s time you stop overworking yourself and take a vacation. Curacao’s sizzling Caribbean nightlife is colorful, lively, and just the right amount of distraction you need to get over your toxic ex-boyfriend. Get the f*ck out of here, Libra. Your summer bae awaits!

Scorpio: Amsterdam

Admit it, betch: Amsterdam is on your bucket list, so it wouldn’t surprise me if you’ve already been there, but summer 2019 is enough reason to pay the Red Light District another visit, right Scorpio? With the sun wandering through foreign ninth house of travel during Cancer season and dominant tenth house of leadership during Leo season, you’re likely feeling large and in charge this summer. So what are you waiting for?

Sagittarius: Catalina Island

Catalina Island

Sail away, Sagittarius. I sound like a broken record, but this eclipse season really got us, didn’t it? Anyway, with the sun shedding light on your auspicious eighth house of intimacy during Cancer season and expansive ninth house of long-distance journeys during Leo season, this summer will be nothing short of enlightening. So whether you’re in the mood to take a literal hike or go snorkeling on the beach, this quaint coastal town has your name on it.

Capricorn: Paris, France

Bon voyage! This summer will be nothing short of irresistibly steamy, so make sure to take advantage of this time and head to the most romantic city in the world. With the sun hovering over your committed seventh house of partnerships all throughout Cancer season and your sexy eighth house during Leo season, you’ll be in the mood for a romantic evening beneath the Eiffel Tower, or perhaps a night aboard Batofar. Oui, oui, betch. ‘Tis the season.

Aquarius: Miami, Florida

Your mind is at 100 mph this summer, Aquarius. Take a breather. With the sun igniting your orderly sixth house of due diligence during Cancer season and committed seventh house of partnerships during Leo season, you’ll be in the mood for the perfect getaway. Alexa, play “Miami” by Will Smith. There’s no denying this culturally rich hotspot is everything you need this season, so pack your bags. Don’t worry, betch. It’s Miami… you don’t need to pack that many clothes.

Pisces: Mykonos Island, Greece

This is how you throw a party in Mykonos, betch. No, really… wouldn’t that be the best Instagram caption ever? OK, now I sound like an obnoxious influencer. Nevertheless, with the sun beaming through your expressive fifth house of romance during Cancer season and detail-loving sixth house of order during Leo season, Greece is the perfect itinerary-friendly getaway, so get ready to party.

The Type Of Guy Your Zodiac Sign Should Have A Summer Fling With

Alexa, play “Summer” by Calvin Harris! 

Falling in love in the summertime is inevitable, betch. Whether you suddenly find yourself crushing on a sexy coworker at happy hour, or you decide to take off on a summer getaway where you can unapologetically pull a Vicky Cristina Barcelona, rest assured, the heat is totally on. This, of course, could seem somewhat contradictory, from an astrological standpoint, considering the summer solstice is also the first day of Cancer season. (No offense, Cancer… but you know your astrological season tends to be a bit on the crybaby side…) But in the end, it’s those same overwhelming feels that flood our emotional psyche every year around the same time. Although, if you think Cancer season feels emotionally over-the-top, I suggest you mentally prepare yourself for Leo’s flamboyant theatrics. I truly can’t emphasize it enough, the summer is a panty-dropper season, and if you still don’t believe me, just wait until you get a glimpse of Leo season, because it’s going to be a cinematic experience.

Maybe I’m being cliche here, but the summertime feels like one big supercut from the 1978 romantic comedy Grease. Here’s how I see it: The first half, Cancer season, is a combination of the opening makeout scene on the beach, with a clip of Olivia Newton John’s “hopelessly devoted to you.” It’s sweet, it’s nostalgic, and let’s face it, it’s beyond sappy. Leo season, on the other hand, feels emotionally similar, but has a totally different vibe. This is everything from Danny Zuko’s melodrama in the midst of being stranded at the Drive-In, along with Sandy’s epic, “Tell me about it, stud,” before she and Danny fly away in a Ford De Luxe convertible, that’s been “Greased Lightning.” What can I say? Life imitates art. Real talk, though, who doesn’t fantasize about the ultimate summer fling? If you think I’m exaggerating, then why is it that musicians specifically wait until the summer to gift us with some of the most memorable hits of all time? #JustSaying

Looking for love this summer? See the type of guy you should have a summer fling, according to your zodiac sign below:

Aries

Admit it, betch. You love a man who takes action. You don’t like wasting time, and you get bored easily, too. So someone who’s just as hot-headed, passionate, and thrill-seeking would be your ideal scenario this summer. A hottie in the streets, and a savage in the sheets? Yes, please. Oh, and a little adrenaline-filled argument sesh every now and then doesn’t hurt—provided the makeup after is equally steamy.

Taurus

You want the royal treatment, Taurus. Aside from the fact that you’re one possessive betch, you want a man that will wine, dine, and devour you. Nothing more and nothing less. Just make sure to let him know you’re looking for more than just a summer fling.

Gemini

No strings attached, right? Don’t get me wrong, Gemini. It’s not that you’re against committed relationships or anything like that. On the contrary, you’re very much committed to flirting your little heart out, which is why your ultimate summer romance consists of something light, sexy, and mentally stimulating.

Cancer

Cry me a river, betch. You more than likely have that summertime sadness thing going, like fellow Cancer songstress Lana Del Rey. That is, if you’re not driving yourself mad dreading the thought of your fairytale coming to an end, sooner or later, of course. You don’t do flings, Cancer. You want it all or nothing at all, so don’t bother trying to make yourself believe otherwise.

Leo

You want someone who straight-up worships you, betch. You’re playful, outgoing, and passionate AF… but you’re also incredibly attention-seeking, too. So your ideal summer fling would have to be someone you can bring around your loved ones during the day, and can have all to yourself at night. As long as it’s all about you, right?

Virgo

You’re one picky betch, Virgo. You’re not as traditional as Capricorn, but you still have a type, and you’re not about to settle for anything less, either. You appreciate the courting, but you’re a sucker for the details. So he better pay close attention to you and go the extra mile. Oh, and it gets hot in the summer, too, so his hygiene better be up to par, or else it’s a no-go.

Libra

Your charm is your money-maker, Libra. Dating isn’t the issue, it’s finding your perfect match that seems to be the challenge. Unfortunately, your indecision doesn’t help either, but finding someone you can ultimately kick back with, and have good conversation with this summer will certainly do. Good looks are also a must-have, but that’s only because you’re spoiled.

Scorpio

Sexual chemistry is always a priority for you. Then again, you’re an extremist, so you’re either in it to win it, or completely uninterested. There’s really no in-between for you, Scorpio. It doesn’t matter whether you meet him in the summer or the fall, the moment you set your eyes on someone, it’s only a matter of time before you make them your sex slave for all eternity.

Sagittarius

Lust and wanderlust are two completely different emotions, Sagittarius. But we all know wanderlust wins by a long shot. All I’m saying is, your ultimate summer fling most likely has TSA pre-check. That’s all. You love the outdoors, and you’re always looking for a reason to travel. So perhaps a fellow sunset chaser and eternal wanderer will do the trick. YOLO.

Capricorn

The more successful, the better—right, Capricorn? I’m not saying you’re a gold digger, but you have to admit the facts. You appreciate a hardworking man, especially those with that C-Suite swag. You’re bound to fall for the hottie working overtime this summer. You love putting in the work, and you expect the same from the people you invest in. Time is money.

Aquarius

Relax, betch. No one said anything about making your relationship official. On the contrary, summer flings are a seasonal thing, so you have nothing to worry about. In fact, who said you can’t have more than one summer romance? I know you’re all about that free love, so don’t be afraid to do exactly that. Just make sure you don’t play any of your sinister mind games in the process.

Pisces

You’re a sultry siren, Pisces. This, of course, is especially true in the summer, as you’re one of the few who thrive during Cancer season. You are a fellow water sign, too, you know. And let’s face it, you’re a hopeless romantic, so you’re not very picky when it comes to choosing the ultimate summer love story. In fact, the more dreamy, emotional, and out-of-this-world, the more you’ll likely fall head over heels. What can I say? You’re unpredictably predictable.

It’s Almost A Holiday Weekend: Weekend Horoscopes June 28-30

We’re one week away from a long weekend, so we just need to get through the next few days without stabbing anyone or having workplace rage blackouts so we can all celebrate America’s birthday with explosions in peace.

This week, most of us are faced with some communication troubles and the choice between comfort zone and social gatherings. A little from column A and a little from column B never hurt anyone, so use the stars as guidance then make your moves.

Gemini

Your inner charm has been awakened, Gemini, so put it to good use and pick yourself up in the romance department this weekend. Mercury traveling through Leo until July 18 will have you at your best and most attractive.

Speaking of hot, you’re pretty good at getting people to bend to your will this weekend, so don’t be afraid to use that to your advantage to get, like, free drinks or mozzarella sticks. You’ll feel hella empowered when you grab hold of your own resourcefulness and put yourself first.

Cancer

Kick back in the comfort zone, Cancer. Whether you’re alone, with an S.O., or even hanging with a roommate you don’t hate (yet), you’ll be at your best Saturday and Sunday if you’re relaxing with people you like. And speaking of relaxing, try not to give any thought to any exes that cross your mind. Venus colliding with Neptune causes the feels to come out, but don’t let the planets f*ck with relaxation station.

Leo

Try something new this weekend, Leo. Whether it’s a weird sex position (weird flex, but okay), a new recipe, or a spontaneous road trip, you need to try something that you aren’t super familiar with. You’ll figure things out, or you won’t, and it’ll be fine either way.

In the romance department, Venus in your social sector is f*cking with Neptune, making tensions rise in your friend group, so just be super transparent about your feelings and try not to talk behind anyone’s back. You could also attract a potential date who actually knows how to form sentences thanks to a friend setting you up.

Virgo

Leave your homebody-ness at home this weekend, Virgo, and reach out to friends you’ve been ignoring. No one cares if you haven’t gotten your brows waxed or have a giant zit. Just eat pizza and drink with those folks you haven’t seen in a while. Speaking of social, you may connect with a coworker over the weekend while you’re both out and about. Just remember to be wary of the whole office romance thing. We can’t all end up like Jim and Pam.

Libra

Go outside, Libra. We know the world is a scary place and that sitting at home in your bathrobe with your S.O. is a super safe space, but if you don’t explore, you’ll never be able to take advantage of new restaurants, new scenery, new people, and new tacos. Plus, Mercury in Leo ups your ability to get chatty with friends and potential mates, so get out there (especially Saturday) and meet people!

Scorpio

Speak your truth, Scorpio. Stop editing yourself (especially around close friends, family, and your S.O.) and have the harder convos this weekend. What’s the worst that could happen? Having a challenging conversation can be a great relationship building block and may launch you off that plateau you’ve felt a bit stuck on.

Additionally, now that work is out for the week, set your sights on a date for Friday or Saturday, either with your S.O. or a new potential mate. Remember: Open communication is key, so be clear about your lack of bra around the house or love for greasy Chinese food whilst hungover.

Sagittarius

Come back to earth, Sagittarius. You’ve got some unrealistic expectations, and they could run people off or start issues between you and close friends. Listen to your gut and chill tf out. And speaking of gut, you’re usually pretty good with money, but it’s okay to ask for help. Like, no, you don’t have a solid understanding of gold and the stock market, so go ahead and talk to someone before investing your life savings this weekend.

Capricorn

Take other peoples’ wants and needs into account this weekend, Capricorn. Yes, you’re a great entertainment director, but your S.O. may not want to wander through the antique mall with you again this weekend. Trust other people to be in charge once in a while—especially this weekend. It can’t end up that badly. The best days for romantic outings are Friday and Saturday, so ask your partner what they’d like to do for a change.

Aquarius

Develop your abilities, Aquarius. This weekend is a great time to push yourself into trying something new or something you aren’t 100% confident with. Plus, with Mercury in Leo, you’ll be an expert communicator Friday through Sunday, so use it to your advantage and head out with friends and convince them to try weird new sh*t, too.

Pisces

Make your own choices, Pisces. Sure, your friends want what’s best for you, but trust your own instincts this weekend. Assert yourself and make some decisions, like where you’re going for brunch, or yes, you’re going for happy hour at 4pm and going to be in bed before 10pm. Plus, making your own choices when it comes to friends may give you some direction in other departments, too, like knowing which creative parts of you to share (watercolors, interpretive dance) with a potential date on Saturday, the best day for romance.

Aries

Watch your mouth, Aries, especially this weekend. Venus and Neptune are clashing, and something innocent can easily be misconstrued as nasty and sh*tty even if you didn’t mean it that way. Perhaps it’s best to stick close to home this weekend, since that’s going to be your most stable environment. Search for peace on the couch, nestled between a good book and a box of Cheez-Its, since a big move or change could be coming up.

Taurus

Bookmark Friday as party time, Taurus. Mercury in Leo makes it a great time to host a dinner party, Big Little Lies watch party, or pizza extravaganza at your place this weekend. Since your planning skills are on point this weekend, you can feel super good about the steps you take to figure out a get together.

Welcome To Cancer Season: Weekly Horoscopes June 24-28

Welcome to Cancer season, aka the astrological glass case of emotion. Cancer is all about being in your feelings, so bust out the scented candles and your favorite movie to sob through. On the bright side, you’ll want to lean into all your favorite self care rituals, as Cancer is all about creature comforts. So yes, spending all your money on bath bombs is justified.

Aries

Tread lightly, Aries. A new romantic prospect may pop into your life this week (yay!) but you’re also in danger of catching feelings too fast (boo!). Not saying you shouldn’t get your flirt on as much as possible, just be sure to check in and remind yourself that marriage isn’t based on a single “hey beautiful ;)”.

Taurus

Drinks on you, Taurus! You’re feeling generous af this week, which is great for your friends, but not as great for your checking account. Try to limit yourself to buying just one round of shots at happy hour. Rent isn’t gonna pay itself, unfortunately.

Gemini

Your theme for the week is balance, Gemini. When it comes to both work and play, the limit does exist, and attempting to do either all the time will result in either a boring-ass life, or a light to mid-range jail sentence. Strike a balance and you can avoid both.

Cancer

Welcome to your season, betch! How does it feel to not be the only one crying on public transportation? Around mid-week you’re going to notice that your brain is super charged like an IRL Jimmy Neutron. Find a way to honor your inner Hermione by going to a museum, watching a smart person movie, or just busting out the Sudoku.

Leo

What happens when Leo stops being polite and starts getting real? You’re about to find out. It’s hard to keep up appearances all the time, so take this week to cut the sh*t and be your authentic self. The people who love you will still be there by Friday, and the people who don’t honestly deserved to get roasted in your group chat.

Virgo

It’s time for a little summertime hibernation, Virgo. You need to re-energize by carving out a decent size chunk of alone time. Do with that time whatever you want: nap, binge watch The Office (for the 1,000th time), eat a tub of ice cream, or just stare at the ceiling wondering if alternate universes are real. The time is yours.

Libra

This week is going to be all about willpower, Libra. Whether it be your 5th attempt at Whole30, not texting back that person you aren’t supposed to text back, or actually observing a no phone rule, you will be tested. Just hold firm to what you want to do and remember there are usually apps to help with this sh*t.

Scorpio

Omg, what is that feeling? Are you ready to drop your guard and open up to love? I’m so proud of you, Scorpio. This week, don’t ignore the urge to be a little more vulnerable with your crush/significant other/hookup/spouse of 7 years. You might find it’s not actually that bad.

Sagittarius

Your hard work is finally paying off, Sagittarius! F*cking finally. Practice taking compliments in the mirror, because by midweek, you should be getting lots of acknowledgement from your bosses, friends, family, and maybe even some exes. Took ’em long enough.

Capricorn

When they go low you go what? High, Capricorn. The answer is high. People are going to try to drag you down into their own bullsh*t this week, but you need to rise above. You have enough baggage without taking on everybody else’s.

Aquarius

Put. The. Credit. Card. Down. I don’t care how good the sale is, you need to resist the urge to splurge. Seriously. You’ll thank yourself later when you have the extra money for something you actually need.

Pisces

It’s time to face the hard truth: you can’t be everyone’s friend. In fact, you don’t want to be everyone’s friend! Some people suck! Take some time to focus on the people you actually like this week, and stop focusing so much on people you don’t actually GAF about anyway.
