What do the stars have planned for you? Only one way to find out.
March 21–April 19
Mercury’s interactions with several other planets this week emphasize your self-expression. Its struggle with Jupiter suggests you should modify your tone with coworkers and adjust your concept of how much you can get done in a day, and its battle with Pluto warns you to also be careful when speaking to authority figures. If you’re frustrated with your progress, focus on one goal and plot a potential path to achieving it. A methodical plan that includes acquiring useful knowledge can ground your thinking. But given Mercury’s rendezvous with Uranus, your brain is apt to go into overdrive at some point, so make a note of ideas and insights, and avoid jumping to conclusions and voicing your impatience. Distract yourself with fun mental activities if you get agitated.
April 20–May 20
Keeping secrets — or blurting one out — might interfere with personal pleasure or your love life this week when Mercury argues with Jupiter, so be mindful of your words and your motives. Mercury is meshing with Saturn in your sharing corner, nudging you to confide in someone you trust in order to foster closeness or engage in introspection in an effort to understand yourself better. A Mercury-Pluto squabble hints that your unconscious thoughts or intentions may be at odds with an evolving shift in your conscious perspective — and again, you may want to guard against saying something that could do more harm than good. Flashes of insight can come from your dreams or imaginative musings, so tune into what’s going on in your head.
May 21–June 20
Mercury is in your network house and clicking and clashing with several planets, highlighting group communication this week. A Mercury-Saturn collaboration encourages you to talk to a friend about a challenge you’re facing in a relationship or reach out to various people in an effort to form a partnership. Mercury’s fight with Pluto in your depth zone hints at a disagreement involving trust, jealousy, sex, control, sharing or money. Try to avoid getting into a power struggle over such matters if you can. Mercury’s encounter with Uranus can facilitate brainstorming, formulating new goals and meeting new friends and professional contacts — but it can also cause you to lose patience with people and be short with them, so take a break if you need some breathing room.
June 21–July 22
With Mercury at the top of your chart, your mind is on goals and career plans, but the mental planet’s awkward encounter with Jupiter this week means you may need to adjust your thinking if it’s too broad or pie-in-the-sky. Fortunately, Mercury is collaborating with Saturn in your duties sector, enabling you to combine hard work and an ambitious mindset. This could be a good time to sharpen your skills, talk to your boss about taking on more responsibility or carefully plot your strategy for accomplishing what you’ve set out to do. Be careful how you speak to people, though, as Mercury’s run-ins with Pluto and Uranus suggest you might get into a conflict over control, take on a domineering tone or rebel against authority.
July 23–August 22
A difference of opinion over resources such as money or possessions is possible this week, with Mercury in your outlook corner disagreeing with Jupiter in your worth house.

Avoid becoming obsessed with a health issue or a particular way of doing something. Mercury’s collaboration with Saturn enables you to explore new beliefs, ideas and subjects and learn more about yourself in the process. You’re able to express your views with flair and authority now. A Mercury-Uranus meetup might give you a fresh perspective, an urge to travel or a sudden revelation, but guard against preaching.
August 23–September 22
Jupiter in Virgo is quarreling with Mercury in your sharing house this week, implying that deep thinking or intimate conversation might somehow clash with your high expectations. Mercury is clicking with Saturn in your foundation angle, though, helping you to unpack emotional baggage, confide in a parent, talk to someone you trust about a personal problem and work on understanding the past. A squabble between Mercury and Pluto might trigger jealous feelings or cause you to obsess over the object of your desire, but if you’re struggling with a creative issue, you could get to the bottom of it now. Mercury’s encounter with Uranus spells liberating intimacy, sexual anxiety or novelty, impatience with sharing or an outburst in a close relationship. Open-mindedness will work in your favor.
September 23–October 22
Unconscious expectations may color your conversations this week, thanks to an uncomfortable meeting between Mercury and Jupiter, so try to be aware of what’s going on in the back of your head. Luckily, Mercury is cooperating with Saturn in your mindset-and-communication zone, enabling you to express yourself maturely and responsibly and to think through practical matters regarding partnership. Merc’s squabble with Pluto suggests that you also need to keep tabs on very private, disruptive emotions — such as old anger— in order to maintain positive dialogue. You could get upset without understanding why, and talking about feelings or family may feel difficult. A Mercury-Uranus rendezvous might spell sudden revelations in a relationship, a surprising conversation or a verbal conflict. Remind yourself to relax if you become anxious.
October 23–November 21
This week, a clash between Mercury and Jupiter warns you not to be too critical of other people and to stop and create a careful plan for attaining a new objective.

A Mercury-Uranus meetup implies you may get impatient with your work, feel distracted on the job, make a quick decision about your habits, decide to change your schedule or gain insight into your health.
November 22–December 21
Mercury has an uncomfortable meeting with your ruler, Jupiter, in your ambition angle this week, calling for you to approach a creative goal from a different angle or adapt your speech so you don’t come off as overbearing. Fortunately, Mercury is gelling with Saturn in Sagittarius, helping you to express yourself with a blend of personality and gravitas and to think about — or talk about — what’s going on with you while maintaining your sense of humor. Mercury’s squabble with Pluto in your worth house indicates that the need to control your finances or other resources could darken your mood, but impromptu fun, flirting, reading for pleasure, a flexible mindset and a spirit of playfulness will cheer you up when Mercury encounters liberating Uranus soon after.
December 22–January 19
Mercury in your foundation angle is struggling with Jupiter in your exploration house this week, so thoughts about home, family, private emotions or the past could conflict with optimism about the future, and you may feel torn between looking back and looking forward. Luckily, Mercury is jibing with Saturn, facilitating productive introspection that gets you some closure or behind-the-scenes mental work that helps you finish something up. With Mercury battling Pluto in Capricorn, though, communication with relatives may be challenging, or you might find yourself obsessing over a memory. Mercury’s encounter with Uranus could cause you to speak impulsively without having a handle on what’s provoking you. Tune into your underlying mood, and make the choice to free yourself from something that’s weighing on your mind.
January 20–February 18
It’s a good idea to stop and think about what you’re saying this week, with Mercury in your cognition-and-communication house sparring with a few other planets.

And its battle with Pluto in your subliminal sector pits your conscious thoughts and words against turbulent emotions that you haven’t processed and may not be fully aware of. A Mercury-Uranus rendezvous will rev up your brain, bringing insights, revelations and clever ideas — or a verbal outburst. Fortunately, Mercury is collaborating with Saturn in your network zone, helping you to reach out to contacts, get your message across to a group, plan teamwork or philanthropic efforts and formulate fresh objectives.
February 19–March 20
Mercury is in your resources house and quarreling with Jupiter in your one-on-one angle and Pluto in your group corner this week, implying that talking about money, possessions, material needs and personal values with other people won’t be easy. Negotiations and transactions are likely to hit a snag, and you need to adapt your thinking and adjust your expectations. Don’t try to control anyone or put too much emphasis on what you’re getting from others. Mercury’s brush with Uranus may impair your financial judgment, so you’d be smart to avoid impulse spending. But this would be a good time to create a new budget, decide to get rid of something and think carefully about how you can successfully combine career goals and financial goals.
