Your Weekly Horoscope: May 26 to June 1


Gemini season is all about loose lips, but this week features a tense aspect between Mercury (our tendency to babble) and Jupiter (our optimism that everything we say will be received well).

Your horoscope for this week will give you a better understanding of what you can expect, and how to handle the chaos Mercury and Jupiter are bringing our way.

Gemini

You are surely meeting new people at the moment, and they are likely people who bring out your best qualities. This is especially true if you accept people who aren’t normally a part of your social circle. People who seemed strange yesterday will perhaps seem less so today. It’s important that you mingle with the public!

Other people may be your bugaboo this week, and meanwhile you have work to get done. Normally you’re not one to blow off your BFFs, but Thursday is an excellent day to turn off your phone, light a candle and write—even if it’s just a to-do list.

Cancer

For a while now, different planetary configurations have been encouraging you to be aware that you live on an entire planet, not just in a city or town. You’re in the process of becoming more aware of society as a whole, which means that your attention may be focused on big-scale movements. Now is the time to get involved!

Taking on so many obligations that you’re courting burnout? Your intentions may be golden, but you can’t volunteer to watch your niece and pick up soup for Grandma and counsel your brother on how to get out of his speeding ticket without eventually needing someone to help you. It’s OK to say no.

Leo

Previous regrets and aspirations are on the agenda today. Would you have liked to be an artist? Are you sure about that? If you’re an artist already, would you like to be more prominent, or have more money? Be wary of such daydreaming because it takes you away from enjoying your real life. Living in the “here and now” and embracing what you already have will ultimately give you the same satisfaction as those who are richer, or more famous.

The line between harmless gossip and violating someone’s confidence can be blurry, so you’ll want to err on the safe side. If you know you can’t withhold hot information from your friend Lucy, then reschedule your brunch until you’re feeling more buttoned up.

Virgo

Today you might need to speak up about something. There are times when you bottle everything up inside until you’re simmering to a boil! There could be a situation that requires some discussion… Don’t procrastinate in handling it because an easy solution can be found! To add, you might need to talk to your family about something. If you’re concerned about anything, speak up!

You might feel caught between your job and your significant other this week. The late nights are grueling, but you feel duty-bound to oblige every client request. Make it up to your partner (to whom you’ve sworn a different kind of duty) by taking an email-free weekend trip. That’s an easier job, for sure.

Libra

Your energy is at an all-time high today. You’re able to see the positive side of any situation, turning lemons into lemonade. Your problem-solving skills are at an all-time high and your sense of humor charms your friends and colleagues. Put this energy to a constructive use and reach for your dreams today. If you want to catch someone’s attention, today’s the day!

Don’t hit send on that email yet, Libra. If you’ve composed a hot take, an impassioned plea or a scathing takedown, you might want to edit once more when you’ve cooled down. At the very least, you probably missed a comma.

Scorpio

There is a great deal of power to your words today, so be careful how you use them. You may end up manipulating the choices of another person if you aren’t careful with the way in which you conduct yourself. Make sure you’re giving others the freedom and empowerment to decide things for themselves. Be open and honest about all the facts that might influence their decision in any way.

Make sure you loop in your partner when it comes to financial concerns. Secrecy about money can be a relationship-killer, and it doesn’t do you any favors to bear the burden of worry alone. Opening up may not be your M.O., but it’ll immediately lighten your load.

Sagittarius

Go for the touchdown today and don’t stop until you’ve succeeded! Don’t let other people’s insecurities become your own. Have confidence in yourself and the way you behave around others. Just because someone else is feeling sad doesn’t mean that you have to as well. The best thing you can do in this situation is to turn it around by exhibiting sheer happiness and a fun-loving attitude.

You’re a famously superb talker, but this week try to show your partner how much you care without a word. A few acts of service like taking out the trash or running to the Verizon store to get them a new charger may not sound romantic, but they are bliss when you’ve spared them an unsexy chore.

Capricorn

The independence that characterizes your sign may play some tricks on you today. What you say won’t be approved of as easily as usual. Even though you have quite a bit of freedom, there are others who assume that you feel like you don’t have enough. There’s no way to please everybody! This concern is their problem, not your’s, though it does beg the question: Do the people that you associate with on a daily basis really understand who you are?

Your ambition is your signature, Capricorn, but your eyes may exceed your grasp this week. If you were planning to run a half marathon, you may only get to mile three. And that’s OK, because resting is a big part of your long game—or at least it should be.

Aquarius

You may be worn out but you have to push forward regardless! You’re entering a long period of work and perseverance, so this is not the moment to be late or hesitant. If you’re still in your pajamas by noon, you should be ashamed! Do what you can to wake yourself up from your recent daze. It’s time to get up and moving!

Doing chores because you’re procrastinating on other work isn’t quite the life hack you think it is—even if the lavender-fresh dishes do actually make you feel better. When you’re feeling that anxiety, try to meditate a little to relax your mind. The stakes won’t feel so high once you confront them.

Pisces

There may be some strange conflicts coming up. It looks like you’re being falsely accused of making mistakes, and you may become the scapegoat today. This could be extremely distasteful, as you can imagine. Begin your own investigation to find the necessary proof that will get you off the hook (no pun intended).

You’ve been cooped up with your immediate family for too long, Pisces, and this week, it’s time to break out. Catch up with people you don’t get to see too often, like your a capella friends from college. Livening up your circle will make the sticky faces at home look a little more appealing…

Aries

If you’ve been finding your companions a bit too boring lately, today is the day to jostle them out of their complacency.

It’s never a good time to fib, Aries, but this is really not the week to do it. Even an innocent little fabrication (like faking a cough to excuse your tardiness at brunch) could result in a demand for receipts. And your pockets are empty.

Taurus

There’s some likelihood that you’ve been a loner lately. It’s like you’ve decided to look at things differently from the rest of the world, rejecting an individualistic viewpoint in favor of a more global one. Today, you may achieve a new goal in this process. You might reach a peak of consciousness where you’ll find the ability to forgive others!

If you are stressed about money (and who can blame you), try to soothe yourself with non-material pleasures. Go for a walk, bake a pie from scratch, spend a night with the family doing jigsaw puzzles. You’re (a little!) richer than you feel.
