Today, superconnector Mercury shifts into Aquarius and your eleventh house of group activity, giving your social life (both online and IRL) an energetic infusion. Instead of going it alone, tap into the power of the collective. Group projects pick up steam between now and February 3. The eleventh house rules humanitarian efforts: What can you do to make the world a better place? Let other people’s grand visions educate and enliven you, and team up in the name of change. This is an excellent time for networking and online ventures, so use social media to spread your message. See the full week >
Achievement or bust! Communicator Mercury zips into Aquarius and your tenth house of status and success, giving you a one-track mind until February 3. Keep a sharp eye on those goals, Taurus. A diligent attitude will carry the day, and your greatest inspiration may come from staying glued to your desk for an extra hour or two. Call up a mentor and put some quality time on the schedule. The influence of an experienced person could really help you get ahead or clarify your path. Stay alert for a leadership opportunity, and, if you’re job-hunting, get your resume and LinkedIn current.

Spit it out, Gemini! An unfiltered cycle begins today as expressive Mercury enters Aquarius, your ninth house of full-throttle honesty. Until February 3, you won’t be holding back. Careful: You could be a bit TOO blunt or tactless at times, offending people with your candor. Channel your energy into living your truth—which may require you to broaden your horizons, especially if you’ve been playing small. A life-changing trip or a daring risk could open your mind in important new ways. Keep asking: What else is possible? See the full week >
It’s getting hot in here, Cancer. Communicator Mercury blazes into Aquarius, activating your eighth house of soul-merging and sex until February 3. While your fantasy-fueled sign can get swept away by romantic illusions, that can be a hindrance to lasting love. In truth, everyone has issues, and Mercury in this psychological zone of your chart helps you accept that. During this period, seek out ways to be more vulnerable and to heal from old wounds. You might benefit from therapy since mindful Mercury helps you rapidly process a painful situation from your past. See the full week >
Choose compromise over competition, Leo. With interactive Mercury in Aquarius and your relationship house until February 3, you’re in cooperative spirits. Use this sweet-talking cycle to restore balance and get back in sync with important people. Put agreements in writing (since Mercury rules contracts). Now is the time to hold people (including yourself) accountable for what they say. Unsure of where you stand in a certain alliance? Listen carefully and ask questions—this is no time for assumptions.

Analyze this! Your thoughts may be in overdrive as mental Mercury visits Aquarius and your systematic sixth house until February 3. Focus on anything that requires well-considered opinions and attention to detail. This is a great time for devising practical solutions, whether that means reorganizing your home or streamlining your work process. Find ways to get to the gym and sweat out stress. With all this cerebral action, you need to be less in your head and more in your body. See the full week >
Stand proud, Libra. Your self-confidence soars as clever Mercury settles into Aquarius and your expressive fifth house until February 3. There’s nothing wrong with plainly stating your desires, especially in love. Don’t play small or, worse, do the “humblebrag” routine. Just own your power instead of being falsely modest. While there could be fireworks during this theatrical transit, you’ll also enjoy flirtatious banter just for the fun of it. Your emotions are colorful and dramatic now, so remind yourself not to take things quite too personally. Channel your intensity into a creative outlet instead. See the full week >
Time to reconnect with your roots? From now until February 3, curious Mercury is spinning through Aquarius, activating your fourth house of home and family. Pore over old photos, take an ancestry DNA test or add comfy new touches to your decor. Make it a priority to nurture your most cherished ties with regular (or reinvigorated) communication. Don’t worry about how much time has passed—just pick up wherever you are, and you’ll fill each other in on the stuff that matters. Women in particular can play an important role. Be receptive to advice from the savvy sisterhood. See the full week >
Good luck holding back your thoughts, Archer. With communicative Mercury in Aquarius and your chatty third house until February 3, your colorful commentary will be more vibrant than ever. Take full advantage of this talkative transit by scheduling important pitches and brainstorming sessions—or maybe starting up your own podcast! If you need to negotiate, diplomacy and grace will be your best assets. Find an outlet for all this mental stimulation, perhaps in a class or DIY project. Since the third house rules local action, go take a peek at neighborhood events, get a library card or visit a city council meeting. You never know what kindred spirits you’ll meet.

Buckle down, Capricorn. With clever Mercury in Aquarius and your security-seeking second house, turn your attention to the basics: work, money and stability. Until February 3, you have added motivation to prioritize self-sufficiency. Repair a work relationship if it’s on shaky ground. Revamp your budget so that you can conquer any money woes and not end up in a tight spot again. Align your self-esteem with your paycheck. When you believe in yourself, it shows—and it will impact the level of respect you get from colleagues and clients. See the full week >
Grab the talking stick, Aquarius, and don’t let go. With clever Mercury settling into your sign until February 3, you have plenty to share. Think carefully about your personal agenda and how you can move it forward. And don’t worry that you’ll seem “selfish.” After all, if you don’t express your most cherished goals and passions, how will they ever manifest? Make your dreams a top priority, even if that means declining a coffee run with a co-worker or missing a couple social engagements. Your singular focus will pay off three weeks from now.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Easy does it, Pisces. With mindful Mercury in Aquarius and your sensitive and soulful twelfth house until February 3, you may need more downtime and solitude. It’s not that you don’t want to be social; it’s just that your psyche needs some space. Carve out time to rest, watch movies or meditate. Listening to dreamy music or going dancing can help move stuck feelings through your system. If an old hurt is eating you up inside, work with a therapist or healer to help release its grip. Set your internal compass for forgiveness rather than continuing to suffer over the past. See the full week >
