You can lead a horse to water, Aries, but you can’t make it drink—especially on low-energy days like today, when the moon’s in imaginative Pisces and your restful twelfth house. If you can take a comp day, do so! But if there’s work to be done and assignments that are past due, brew up another cup (or pot!) of coffee and get down to business. Screen out distractions and see if you can’t log out a little early. Log in to a restorative yoga class or download a guided meditation to help you relax your mind. See the full week >
Don’t come at work assignments with your usual mindset today, Taurus. With the moon in imaginative Pisces and your experimental eleventh house, you’re a one-Bull ideas machine! This is also your sector of group activity, so tapping into the synergistic hivemind might yield even more brainstorms. Schedule a group video chat with the most innovative people you know. Get your practical thinking process aside (for a moment) and play around with some “impossible” notions. They might require a little tweaking, but you could hit on a real winner. See the full week >
Before you pitch any big ideas, look in the mirror and rehearse what you’re planning to say. With the moon in compassionate Pisces and your career zone, you’ll win way more supporters with honey than vinegar (or with praise than hard-boiled ultimatums). Open up any conference calls with a little conversation, showing your genuinely personal side. Ask questions of other participants, then let someone else make the opening gambit. You know your stuff, so if you stick to your bottom line, you can’t go astray! See the full week >
You may be growing impatient waiting for someone to get back to you about a big idea. So… grab the wheel! Today, the moon is firing up your fearless ninth house of action and adventure, and you might feel like you’ll go stir-crazy if you don’t do something soon. Whether you’re trying to get the start date in stone for a project or nail down a call time, throw out a couple of suggested slots on your calendar. Your initiative might inspire that other person to finally make a decision. See the full week >
The Pisces moon in your eighth house of intimacy and intensity is jacking up your emotions, but these might be projections of your own fears and deep desires. Loosen your grip and try to witness the sensations as they come up without judging or reacting to them. You could learn some important lessons about yourself. A good process would be to write in your journal or make a vision board of the images that represent your feelings. Talk to a friend—but don’t take action. Cooler winds will blow in this weekend.

Partnerships come under the microscope today as the moon beams into Pisces and your seventh house of dynamic duos. With all the global changes, relationship dynamics have been thrown into a tailspin, and you might be ready to give someone their walking papers. Hang on, Virgo! It takes two to tango, and no one says you can’t take the lead. Come up with a creative plan for communicating (even virtually) and watch those embers spark up. Single? Change your mindset from one of scarcity to abundance and THEN hop on the dating apps. A new vibe could attract some very different types. See the full week >
Before you start a hundred new projects, stop and get your bearings, Libra. Whether you’re self-motivated or have an impatient boss pinging you on Slack every two seconds, you will be far more productive if you start the day by getting grounded and organized. With the moon in your focused, efficient sixth house, don’t even try to multitask. Make a fresh to-do list and prioritize tasks by importance. And while you’re toiling away, don’t ignore the details—relish them! See the full week >
The weekend starts… tonight! Okay, so that’s not exactly a stop-the-press news flash, but we thought you’d like to know that it could be particularly festive and romantic! For the next two days, the moon is in sensual Pisces and your amorous fifth house. Be bold with your love interest, or plan a sexy surprise, whether you can unleash it virtually or IRL. And who says you can’t organize friends into a flash mob on Zoom? Not feeling the festive vibes? Then tune in to your muse. These next two and a half days are ripe for a creative immersion!

The softer side of Sagittarius is peeking out today as the moon shifts into Pisces and your emo fourth house. Don’t be so mission-oriented that you can’t make time to pick up a good friend’s call or check in with a relative who hasn’t been feeling her best lately. Nurturing yourself is also key to keeping yourself strong and vital. What can be rescheduled, Archer? Take the pressure off or, if you can’t move deadlines, call for backup! See the full week >
Are you standing in your own way, Capricorn? With an intuitive Pisces moon illuminating your third house of collaborations and kindred spirits, you shouldn’t have to work hard to find THE perfect partner in crime. But are you afraid this person won’t live up to your standards or share your vision for the project? You’ll never know if you don’t take a little gamble and ask. Lead with trust and an open heart and you might be pleasantly surprised at what comes back to you! See the full week >
Vote with your wallet today, Water Bearer. Sure, it’s easy to fall into the same old shopping and spending habits, but why not put your money where your values are? That’s up your humanitarian alley! With a compassionate Pisces moon zipping through your second house of finances, invest the time to research the policies of your favorite companies or buy services in advance from a local business that was shut down temporarily (provided you know you’ll use them when they reopen). Look into ethical companies or programs that donate a percentage of your purchases to a charity of your choice. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You won’t have to actively launch a charm offensive today, Pisces—not with the moon lingering in your sultry sign for the next two and a half days. Whether by Zoom, phone or a face-to-face, people will be hanging on to your every word. Bear in mind that once you “hook” ‘em, it might not be so easy to release ‘em. Be cognizant of leading people on, and let your guiding philosophy be “Do unto others.” Leave enough time in your evening calendar for precious “me” time. If the muse comes a’calling, you don’t want to let THAT one go to voicemail! See the full week >
