Going along to get along does not count as being a team player. On Saturday, the Aries moon in your self-authorized first house gets in a flowing formation with the powerful Sun in your passionate fifth house. Your squad needs to hear YOUR unique vision—and contributing your perspective at a group hangout could impress your crew. If you don’t have anything concrete to add to the discussion, be more vocal in your support of those who do. No faking it, though! If you think they’re veering off-course, raise your concerns and help troubleshoot where you can. On Sunday, the moon is still in your sign, nudging you to follow your own impulses and desires. But a speed-checking warning flag from restrained Saturn in your career corner reminds you that you’ve also got some long-range plans, and following a wild hare could derail you from them. You might need to put something on ice for another day to take care of the business at hand. But when you CAN indulge your passion, you’ll be able to do so with a clear conscience.

Take a breather from laborious tasks on Saturday and let your imagination flow. Wander away from your task list whenever you can. This will do far more to grease the wheels of ingenuity than staring at your phone ever could. Beauty in all its forms is not only intoxicating but motivating. Meander through nature or see if you can find an outdoor art exhibit. Listen to music often: It will soothe the savage Bull. Sunday’s not the day to get lost in daydreams or a fantasy about an upcoming event—much as you’d like to! Structured Saturn in your visionary zone is shooting a harsh beam to the moon in your dreamy twelfth house, insisting that even reveries be based in reality. It’s fine to give your imagination free rein and come up with some inspirational ideas, but you need to discern what’s doable and what’s just a sweet but impractical pipe dream. See the full week >
Feeling locked out of opportunity? You’re just banging on the wrong door, Gemini. Instead of pushing and forcing—and exhausting yourself in the process—start exploring new directions on Saturday. A collaborative approach could bring new life to a project that’s been failing to inspire. But make sure the people you engage share your mercurial work style. Sure, you might enjoy a tag team effort, but only if you’re not breathing down anyone’s neck—or feeling their wary eyes on you. Watch for a frenemy in team player’s clothing on Sunday. Someone might be talking a good game about “one for all and all for one,” but scratch beneath the surface and you may discover they’re really just out for themselves. With the cosmic teacher, Saturn, in your house of secrets squaring the hazy moon in your group-activities sector, you’ll have to use your Spidey senses to suss this person out. Look for telltale signs, like hints of jealousy or competitiveness, when they should be putting squad goals first. See the full week >
Click and ye shall find. Some online detective work can help you source materials and data for a personal project on Saturday. Set a timer so you don’t get distracted by an insane designer sale or comparing prices on cabins within driving distance. The point of this research is to strengthen a pitch or presentation. Already got it covered? Set up advisory calls or meetings with friends who can help you get the ball rolling. Your take-charge attitude is what’s needed to move plans from idea to inception. Make sure your work is polished, but don’t let perfectionism derail progress. No matter what you’re doing this Sunday, you may have to step into an authoritative role. It’s tricky for your compassionate sign to assert yourself in personal relationships. But with your ruler, the tender moon, squaring taskmaster Saturn, it’s important to hold others accountable for their end of the bargain. Friendship is one thing, but people still have to pull their weight…and not dump their work on you! See the full week >
Honesty is the best policy when it comes to partnerships on Saturday, Leo. But that doesn’t mean you should steamroll anyone with your vision of the future. Take a philosophical approach instead of laying down rules and regulations. You know what feels right for you, and by expressing it, you’ll be giving the other person valuable intel. But be equally interested in hearing how they’d like things to go. The consensus you arrive at together could be more fulfilling than your Plan A. Communicate and collaborate. With diligent Saturn in your organized sixth house, you’ve practically gone cross-eyed staring down every last detail. But on Sunday, the taskmaster planet is in a tense square with the impulsive Aries moon in your big-picture ninth house, which is encouraging you to think WAY outside the box. Rather than twist yourself into a pretzel, accept that this situation might not be easily solved by traditional thought processes and that you might have to pull something out of thin air.

Your authentic self is your most alluring self, Virgo. On Saturday, aim for compatibility instead of mere desirability. Your powers of attraction are strong, but you want your siren’s song to draw in the RIGHT sailors. With the moon nuzzling up to the Sun—and both in adventurous fire signs—you could fall head over flat-form sandals for someone from a different cultural identity. Coupled? Talking about your long-range plans will be a huge aphrodisiac. Dreaming about your first post-virus trip could be part of that conversation. Where to first: Copenhagen, Kyoto or maybe a long weekend on the California coast? Under Sunday’s volatile square between the passionate Aries moon in your emotionally intense eighth house and restrained Saturn in your amorous fifth, you might not be able to keep a lid on any feelings. Lust, desire, anger, jealousy: What ISN’T churning inside you? If you’re in a relationship, do some preventive damage control by talking this through with someone in a position to help. Single? It’s not the best night to meet new people since you’ll be wearing your rawest emotions on your sleeve. See the full week >
Your percolating passion bubbles to the surface on Saturday—and that enthusiasm is infectious! It’s attractive, too, so be prepared to field your share of admirers. Have you set your sights on one person in particular? You could advance from the subtle flirtation phase to something more obvious, like dinner al fresco and a sexy after-party at your place. If you’re feeling the love, the bold Sun comes in to help you express it fearlessly. Even if you’ve been with your S.O. for years, Libra, a little acknowledgment and focused attention can be a huge aphrodisiac. There’s a fine line between caring and oversharing on Sunday, Libra, so tread carefully! With an impulsive Aries moon orbiting your relationship sector, you’re eager to speak from your heart. Yet a tense square from restrained Saturn in your foundational fourth house may be holding you back from fully expressing your truth. Resist the temptation to analyze this emotional situation and try feeling your way through it. The worst thing that can happen is that someone you adore sees how much you actually care.

Spruce up your space this Saturday, remembering that efficiency and aesthetics are not mutually exclusive. Create organizational systems to house your stuff, grouping together like objects (computer cables with computer cables, statement earrings with statement earrings) and giving everything its own dedicated place. Cruise Pinterest for design inspiration and turn your storage displays into works of art. Why use boring wire bins when you could pick out colorful boxes or vintage wine crates? If you’re feeling overburdened, call a household meeting to make sure everyone under your roof is pulling their weight. On Sunday, with the moon in your sixth house of service, you might be overly focused on doing good for other people. Nice sentiment, but thanks to a clash from solemn Saturn, you’re at risk for getting sucked into a wormhole of duty without the altruistic high that giving to others can bring. Get your groove—and your sense of humor—back by shuffling at least one high-priority self-care goal into the day’s to-do list. And don’t quit till it’s done! See the full week >
Keep that capture tool handy this Saturday because you’ll be brimming over with creative ideas. No judgments; just write ’em all down. These are the seeds of genius, no matter how offbeat they may seem in this early stage. No matter your genre of expression, this is the day to brainstorm and experiment without limits. With the Sun and moon in sync, a creative collab could spark a romantic attraction. Coupled Archers, engage bae in the process! Thanks to the moon in free-range Aries and your fun-loving fifth house on Sunday, your spontaneous Sag self is chomping at the bit, eager to bust out of the starting gate. But sober Saturn in your pragmatic second house is reining you in. And because these two planets are locked in a tense 90-degree square, you’re probably going nowhere fast. But if you can stop thinking in “either/or” terms and find a way to act on both urges, you may feel a little less on tenterhooks all day. See the full week >
Your powers of persuasion are strong on Saturday, Capricorn, so pitch, present or make your best appeal. Don’t be afraid to tap into people’s emotions, even if you’re dealing with them in a professional context. Cue cards not required; just speak from the heart. When you find their “pain point,” you can present a solution that feels like a win-win. The women in your world might step up as key supporters—and a sister act could turn into a project that is profound AND profitable. Sunday’s inquiry: Who’s the boss of you? Okay, that’s a rhetorical question, but it’s a reminder that only YOU can make yourself feel happy, sad, obsessed, worried, etc. Your ruling planet, structured Saturn, is in your sign and sending a tense beam to the moon in independent Aries and your domestic quarters. When duty calls, obviously you need to respond, but when you’re in your own space on your own time, unplug all devices and pursue whatever your heart desires! See the full week >
Who are the people in your neighborhood? Don’t walk around in a tech trance on Saturday. As the moon in your social sector pings the outspoken Sun, “strangers” can become fast friends. You could strike up a lively conversation on your way to your local coffee shop or even start flirting madly with a neighbor while collecting your mail. Hey, Aquarius, it never hurts to have someone nearby for movie nights or to feed your cat when you’re gone for the weekend. Make the first gesture with those who intrigue you. A genuine compliment breaks the ice. If you’ve been going 24-7, Sunday’s stars may pull the emergency brake. With your co-ruler, somber Saturn, idling in your introspective zone and flashing a warning light to the restless Aries moon in your social sector, the proper response to anything that isn’t essential is, “Raincheck?” If you must go out, make it a low-key affair with one or two friends. Better yet, stay home for a soothing day IN. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Be a budget bacchanalian on Saturday, Pisces. Your lavish appetite doesn’t have to suffer due to your savings goals—not with YOUR creativity and charm. Surf online auctions before you pay full price or work a stylish pastiche of luxury goods and consignment scores. Don’t forget the barter system. Maybe you could swap one of your valuable skills for those desired goodies. With the moon in your earthy second house, nature will provide all the atmosphere you need for any socializing, especially on Sunday. If you’ve been bleeding money trying to keep up with friends or self-soothe with retail therapy, you can turn that around, easy peasy! Restrained Saturn in your group-activity zone is in a tense angle with the moon in your financial sector. Something could happen—or you might just have an aha moment—when you realize you’re not handling your money in a way that supports your greater goals. You don’t have to cut up your Mastercard; just ask yourself each time you’re about to whip it out, “Is this worth it?” See the full week >
