Aries | march 21 - april 19
Professional Life: You've always had high expectations, but don't forget to be gentle with others... and yourself.
Romantic Life: This is a time to be passionate and compassionate, Aries. Continue to reflect on relationships and don't be afraid to get freaky... your person will like it.
Health and Happiness: This retrograde, Mercury is in your 12th house of closures, spirituality and healing, making it a good time to give back to those people and things you are passionate about. Venus is in your 11th house of friendships and sociality making it a good time to re-connect with people you love or care about.
Taurus | april 20 - may 20
Professional Life: Venus is in your 10th house of career and destiny, making it truly the time to seize any moments that will further your special pursuits. Plus, Uranus is transitioning into your sign from now until 2025, making your career house ready to deliver what you've been working on and level up.
Romantic Life: With it being Pisces season and all, allow yourself to open up this week, Taurus. Although, a lot can be said without words, too...
Health and Happiness: This retrograde is in your 11th house of friendship and sociality, so while your determined work ethic has been shining, don't be afraid to put the work aside and appreciate the power of organic and genuine networking.
Gemini | may 21 - june 20
Professional Life: This retrograde has Mercury in your 10th house of career and destiny, which is no doubt why you've been doing a million and one things lately. Gemini does have four hands after all... But once Mercury moves into your 11th house, all your hard work is going to pay off (as it almost always does)!
Romantic Life: Doing what you are passionate about makes you feel confident and sexy. Follow that feeling, because when you do you are magnetic and your spirit shines.
Health and Happiness: With Venus in your 9th house of travel and expansion, you've lately been jumping around from place to place. It will do you well to settle down, take a deep breath and re-connect with your creative side. You shine in a leadership or motivational role.
Cancer | june 21 - july 22
Professional Life: Your career is moving into new and expansive territories. The retrograde has Mercury spinning backwards in your 9th house of expansion, travel and abundance. Venus also sits in your 8th house of transformations, endings and new beginnings.
Romantic Life: Paired up? Looks like it's time to move things to the next stage. With Venus in your 8th house, relationships will progress or... move healthily on. Single? With everything going on in your life, you have the ability to attract romance... but loving yourself could mean focusing on your own goals and dreams.
Health and Happiness: Patience is a virtue, and one you should consider well during this time, for yourself and others. Pisces season makes emotions run high but you have a healing energy that you should not hide away or be shy about.
Leo | july 23- august 22
Professional Life: You have been working hard lately to reestablish yourself, Leo. That hasn't gone unnoticed. As the retrograde puts Mercury in your 8th house of transformations, endings and new beginnings, you will enter that new era you've been working towards.
Romantic Life: That new era applies to Venus, too, who moves to join Mercury in your 8th house on the 8th. Tune out that nagging voice and listen instead to your intuition — real connections will follow.
Health and Happiness: If you've been letting your self-esteem get the better of you lately, try using that negative energy towards positive changes. You will never be unhappy seeking out health and avoiding things that can make you less than 100%.
Virgo | august 23 - september 22
Professional Life: This year, be sure not to hold back — people are going to notice and your leadership qualities will shine. However, this retrograde has your planet in your 7th house of partnerships and relationships so your ability to connect with people may be strained.
Romantic Life: If it feels like something is getting between you and another, it's time to address the crux of the issue, and that might be within yourself.
Health and Happiness: Develop your creative side if you feel you need to retreat from the miscommunications this retrograde. Don't be so hard on yourself and choose optimistic thoughts that lean towards self-improvement instead of negative or unempowering thoughts.
Libra | september 23- october 22
Professional Life: Maybe you've never thought about putting your skills to use in a charitable fashion, but your natural charm makes talking to people and enacting change a fulfilling endeavour for you, Libra. However, try to avoid any impulsive decisions as Mercury retrogrades in your 6th house of health, improvement and service. Donate your skills, not money.
Romantic Life: Venus, your ruler, is in your 5th house of expression, creativity and passion this week, so take advantage of this energy and get risky and frisky! (I'm so sorry I couldn't resist the rhyme)
Health and Happiness: During this retrograde (which could work against you if you are too impulsive) focus on self-care, meditation and visualization, health and wellness. As is your constellation, balance brings you the most peace, so find some in fitness and clean eating.
Scorpio | october 23 - november 21
Professional Life: Your place in the world is becoming clearer and this Pisces season is helping you and others better understand each other. While this retrograde may attempt to mess with you, as it occurs in your 5th house of expression, creativity and passion, remember to stick to your guns and don't be afraid to get a little selfish.
Romantic Life: Sometimes we choose our family, and those relationships are going to feel extra strong to you this Pisces season. Allow yourself to be tender and loving.
Health and Happiness: With Venus in your 4th house of family, home and roots, the retrograde may make it feel like these areas are making you want to bury your head in the sand. Be open with your struggles so they don't take a toll on you.
Sagittarius | november 22- december 21
Professional Life: If people are feeling like you're MIA right now it's because Venus is in your 3rd house of intellect, communication and education. You've got a lot on your plate right now, Sag, and it feels like a lot more with Pisces hightening our emotions right now.
Romantic Life: If you don't communicate, you appear emotionally unavailable — and maybe you are — so honesty is the best policy. Don't let your strong work ethic interrupt other parts of your life.
Health and Happiness: With the retrograde spinning in your 4th house of family, home and roots, it might be worth it to start your spring cleaning early, Sagittarius. This frivolous task is going to do you well.
Capricorn | december 22- january 19
Professional Life: With the retrograde in your 3rd house of intellect, communication and education and Venus in your 2nd house of finance self-esteem and material possessions, you may be tempted to look back on past decisions with regret. Also, Mercury being the planet of communication and technology could leave you with a mighty-full inbox of unread e-mails — try to not let these planets get the better of you.
Romantic Life: Perhaps the person you're struggling to communicate with is also struggling through their own retrograde... consider that before saying something you can't take back. In fact, maybe a conversation is better left for another day. Passion could be enough to get you through this one.
Health and Happiness: You worry least when you feel well organized and planned out — so treat yourself but consider your inner worry-wart before any impulsive decisions. Dive into something you find spiritual, even if they're just simple acts of kindness.
Aquarius | january 20 - february 18
Professional Life: With the retrograde in your 2nd house of finances, material possessions and self-esteem beware that bad financial habits could really backfire on you this month. You've had yourself on the backburner long enough and with Venus in your house of appearance, first impressions and the self, it's time you actualize the person you've been visualizing for so long.
Romantic Life: Your never-ending quest for personal truth makes you a charismatic person as well as a lover. Relax and give the people around you the benefit of your affectionate and welcoming nature, passion will follow.
Health and Happiness: The universe is really on your side this year, so don't sit stagnantly: make a move. If you've been feeling subpar or inferior, you know it's time for you to take things into your own hands and make your goals a reality.
Pisces | february 19 - march 20
Professional Life: With the retrograde happening in your sign, which is also your 1sts house of self, appearance and first impressions, it's time to move forward. If it feels like you've been knocked out of a dream, welcome back to earth. This is the time to show people what you're really made of.
Romantic Life: If you feel too busy for love, it's because you've got a lot going on right now, Pisces. Prioritize and you'll be okay. If you're looking for love, being authentic brings in the right attention, and if they don't get you, don't you dare take it personally!
Health and Happiness: Don't let the full moon in Virgo (your mirror sign) lead way to getting in your own head. While you are usually positive and in touch with your moods, this retrograde could work to cause miscommunications in your own head. Don't get moody, stay in touch with who you are.
