There’s a part of you that CAN be accommodating to other people’s needs, but only to a point. Reality is, Aries, your independent streak can be just as fierce as your cooperative one. Today, as the ego-driven Sun clashes with unyielding Saturn, you may find yourself barking orders and insisting that people go along with YOUR vision. Although your plan probably is the best one, bend a bit in the name of keeping morale high. Your flexibility will actually make people more amendable to your ideas. See the full week >
Easy does it, Bull. With the Sun in your sign getting checked by modest Saturn, you could rile up unnecessary competition by flaunting your victories without sharing a piece of the pie. You don’t have to downplay your talents or fly under the radar. Just put your focus on empowering others to do and be their best. Can you offer some tips from the field or take a newbie under your wing? Be the benevolent leader, and no one will begrudge you your success. Quite the contrary! An eager assistant could show up to support you in your ascent. See the full week >
So much for constructive criticism. Thanks to today’s tense angle between the Sun in your sensitive twelfth house and tough-love Saturn, the best-intentioned advice could rub you the wrong way. But don’t doubt yourself, Gem. Feedback, even the kind you don’t want to hear, can be the catalyst for growth. If you feel like you’re facing an insurmountable challenge, step away from it for today and come back to it with fresh eyes tomorrow or later in the week. Switching gears can reboot your creativity AND create space for innovative solutions to flow in. See the full week >
Where have all the adults gone? Today’s tangled angle between the ego-driven Sun and disciplinarian Saturn could spark a rebellion. You may feel like the only grown-up in the group, or, conversely, someone’s heavy-handed approach to authority could incite your inner rebel. Expect power struggles and a cameo appearance of your own control issues, Cancer. With everyone’s insecurities on display, minor grievances could flare into full-blown defensiveness.

Stop! Don’t put your name on that DocuSign yet. Today, the Sun in your ambitious tenth house clashes with critical Saturn in your partnership zone. Fear and anxiety may cloud your thinking when it comes to making a deal. If you’re second-guessing your own judgment, hit the brakes. Stalling, at least for a few hours, can give you a chance to make some phone calls and research whatever’s giving you doubts. Though there’s a chance you’re overreacting, this is not the day to ignore your intuition. It’s not like you have to back out of the agreement, but you may need to renegotiate a few points.

No one ever promised you a rose garden, Virgo, but you’re certainly capable of growing your own blooms. Today, the idealistic Sun gets a nudge from hardworking Saturn, inspiring you to hustle a little harder. Instead of getting frustrated over a lack of results, add some DIY magic to the equation. By taking matters into your own hands, you’ll move out of a passive position and into the driver’s seat. Next step: dropping the perfectionism and letting yourself enjoy the process. Don’t let one discouraging day drag you down! Flip the script by acknowledging how far you’ve come already. See the full week >
The low-hanging fruit won’t appeal to you today, Libra. You’d rather climb onto the flimsy branches and come back with some brag-worthy bounty. While your ambition is admirable, make sure the prize is actually worth the effort. Things could get complicated—and fast—due to a tangled angle between the sanguine Sun and drill sergeant Saturn. Unless you’re prepared to navigate unplanned plot twists, it might be best to sit this one out. You’ll have more meaningful victories soon enough. See the full week >
Easy with the tough love, Scorpio. You want the best for the people in your life—and when you see a red flag, you’re quick to sound the alarm. But with today’s spotty connection between the Sun and stern Saturn, your advice could come off as preachy. Instead of firing off feedback, ask questions. You may be pleased to discover that your loved ones are already engaging in savvy solutions. Chill with the opinion-polling when it comes to your own life. You can drive yourself insane asking too many friends for their feedback. Allow yourself to sit with a vexing issue for the next few days and see if an answer doesn’t arise on its own.

Reality check! This could be a “one step forward, two steps back” kind of day, especially if you rush forward without a plan. The confidence-boosting Sun gets checked by planetary project manager Saturn, bringing you crashing back down from the clouds. While this won’t feel like fun—at first—embrace the opportunity to put practical structures in place. You’ll be a lot less anxious once you’re clear on how much time, energy or money this big idea will require to pull off. See the full week >
You’ve been dishing out feedback left and right, Cap. But are you tough enough to take it? Today’s clash between the ego-driven Sun and critical Saturn could make you a little too thin-skinned for a role reversal. If someone’s “helpful hints” land below the belt, don’t get defensive. Instead, take it as an important lesson in compassion. Even if you’re “only trying to help,” bring down the truth hammer with less force and more understanding. On that note, do you owe anyone an apology? Swallow your pride and make amends. See the full week >
There’s no drama like family drama. The Sun in your emotional fourth house butts heads with constraining Saturn, ratcheting up tension. Do you keep hitting the same wall with a relative or finding yourselves stuck in a debate loop? Decreeing certain subjects off-limits may be the only way to preserve the love right now. Look for common ground, even if it’s something as simple as cooking a favorite meal together or comparing notes on the new season of a TV show you both love. That said, a temporary cooldown period might be best, especially on a day as tense as this one. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
If you’re feeling down or frustrated, don’t distract yourself. Instead, pause and sit with the emotions. Write in your journal, go for a walk, talk to an empathetic friend. There’s a reason this situation is bothering you, and today’s Sun in your clarifying third house could help you get to the bottom of it. A nudge from solution-oriented Saturn can support you with handling things proactively. But don’t rush to smooth over the tension. In order to fix the problem, you have to find the source of what’s truly bugging you. See the full week >
