Need to plump up your bottom line? Don’t wait for the phone to ring with a mega offer. Under Saturday’s galvanizing square between Mercury in your innovative eleventh house and spontaneous Uranus in your financial sector, you could hit on an idea to use your talents to earn some bank. For example, can you use your writing, design or photography skills to launch a sideline freelance business? With a little hustle and muscle, you could bump yourself into the next income bracket! You may be feeling cranky or out of sorts under Sunday morning’s intense Scorpio moon. Take a little longer to get out of bed. Instead of checking email straightaway, journal about those swirling thoughts to regain perspective. And if you can reschedule a brunch, do it, Aries. A lunar “change of the guard” arrives this afternoon, drawing you out of your cocoon. With the moon then zipping through Sagittarius for two and a half days, you’re open to expanding in unexpected ways, both professionally and romantically. The trick is to keep your foot on the gas, even when you’re driving outside of your comfort zone! See the full week >
Broaden your sphere of influence! If your inner circle is feeling a bit claustrophobic, reach out to a wider audience. Thanks to Saturday’s charged meetup of Mercury in your career corner and communal, experimental Uranus in your sign, you could impress people without even trying, and team up FTW! The trick is to chat people up individually. You won’t need to exaggerate your ideas or what you can bring to the table. Just let the facts speak for themselves. Early Sunday, you may be on the verge of committing to something (or someone) you’re not 100 percent certain about. Maybe you’re worried that you’ll wind up feeling stuck. The question is: Do you stand to gain MORE by being in this partnership? Allow yourself a little wiggle room for compromise. By afternoon, your concerns could be resolved—and you might make a joint venture official. And if not, at least you gave it serious consideration. See the full week >
You might feel like hiding in your cave Saturday—so don’t apologize! Even the outgoing Twin occasionally needs to lay low and recharge those social batteries. Your ruler, breezy Mercury, is parked in your philosophical ninth house but squaring chaotic Uranus in your restful twelfth. As a result, superficial small talk might be the last thing you have energy for. You’ve earned the right to opt out of social engagements when you’re not feeling the lure. So no guilt for staying in tonight with a great book or to work on a passion project! Have you bitten off more than you can chew? If you feel bogged down by stress early Sunday, set aside your pride and ask for support—a much better strategy than sacrificing your sanity to be a one-Gemini show. Sure, training people in your methodology might cost a little coin and temporarily slow your progress. But ultimately, delegating will free up hours for you to work on more important things. The moon zooms into Sagittarius that afternoon, activating your partnership zone. Someone could step forward as a long-term collaborator—for money or for love! See the full week >
Your animal magnetism is off the charts Saturday, Cancer, so work that magic! With rebellious Uranus in your popularity house, you’re a charm machine, and thanks to a hookup with flirty Mercury in your erotic eighth, one-on-one interactions can go from mild to wild with one smoldering glance. People will be eating out of the palm of your hand: Get clear about what (and who) you want to draw in so you don’t have to deal with any messy clean-up jobs. When you wake up Sunday morning, your creative juices will be flowing as the moon simmers in your passionate fifth house. Set aside time for brainstorming or hands-on productivity. By afternoon, la luna shifts to your practical sixth house, offering a reality check. Need to rally support for your ideas? Bring your lofty vision down to earth by laying out a sensible project plan. Instead of rushing ahead full-speed, do some research and take your time. The goal is to build this dream on a solid foundation—without breaking the bank. See the full week >
Don’t follow the pack! Saturday, your not-so-secret weapon is listening to your heart and doing things your own eclectic way. As quirky Mercury in your partnership house forms an activating angle with spontaneous Uranus in your goal zone, you won’t be able to hold back your opinions—even if that means disrupting the harmony. If people happen to agree, you can win some fierce supporters. Just dial it down enough so that you don’t offend the gatekeepers. You’ll need their support when it’s time to green-light your mission. On Sunday morning, an emo state of mind could leave you feeling heavy. Take some time to explore the root cause of your woes. Perhaps you’re trying to force a square peg into a round hole. A close friend or relative could offer priceless wisdom and insight. When the moon glides into Sagittarius and your expressive fifth house midday, you’ll perk up in anticipation of an afternoon on the town. See if you can score a dinner reservation at that hot new resto or find some live music for a little pre-workweek entertainment. See the full week >
You’d rather have peace than conflict, but under Saturday’s provocative skies, you may have to confront a situation directly. A tense square between your ruler, analytical Mercury, and changemaker Uranus will make things uncomfortable enough that you’re actually eager to initiate what’s sure to be difficult dialogue. Once you get to the “what’s left to lose?” point, things can only go uphill. Discuss! If you’ve still got something important to say, text or Tweet on Sunday, dash it off in the early part of the day while the Scorpio moon is lingering in your communication house. This isn’t about sharing random musings, however. Think through what you want to say before you enter the discourse, then deliver your words with laser-like (Virgo) precision. By afternoon, the moon nests in Sagittarius and your internal fourth house. While you’ll have plenty of philosophical notions rattling in your brain, record them in your journal or cook dinner for a friend in exchange for their wise feedback. See the full week >
Don’t volunteer to take on too much Saturday, Libra. You may have energy to burn, but you also have a heap of responsibilities that require your full attention. Before you wear yourself out, check what might be motivating this “overachieving” urge? While it COULD be rebellious Uranus, the disruptor planet is getting a flashing red light from analytical Mercury, warning you to set limits. Focus on your own projects and build in some downtime, and you’ll be amazed at how productive you’ll be. Weigh both sides of an issue before choosing early Sunday, Libra. If you move forward too hastily, you might uncover additional information later on and regret your choice. Do your homework in the morning, stay objective and listen to your gut. If something feels “off” or doesn’t match your values, it’s worth following your instincts. When the moon enters your social third house by afternoon, take a breather from “figuring it out” and enjoy the evening. Mobilize a group of your friends and try something new, like going to a feminist burlesque show or a unfamiliar live-music venue. See the full week >
People may line up for your sage words of wisdom Saturday, but be careful how seriously you take the role of “therapist.” With open-minded Mercury in a dynamic dance with communal Uranus in your partnership house, friends, associates and relatives may come crawling out of the woodwork to vent to you and soak up your compassion and good advice. While it’s fine to offer a sympathetic ear and some generically helpful words, you really want to avoid getting embroiled in their problems. The artiste is in the house this Sunday! A surge of creative inspiration strikes thanks to the moon hanging out in your sign until the afternoon. Devote the morning to your most imaginative endeavors, and let the juices flow. When the moon shifts into Sagittarius later, your practical side takes the wheel. Don’t let it become a buzzkill, though. Map out a few goals for the week ahead and allow this productive lunation to help you design an action plan. Pro tip: Think in small (but satisfying) bites instead of trying to “crush” something that could wind up stressing you out. See the full week >
Your name is not Atlas, and you don’t have to shoulder the weight of the world, Sagittarius. Of course, with #nolimits Uranus in your sixth house of work and service, you may forget you have the power to say no. And Saturday, the chaotic planet is sending a tense beam to the Mercury in your cooperative third house. The message? See which of these “obligations” you can let go of without consequence. Since the sixth house also rules your health, lightening your workload can have a positive effect on your stress levels! To do so, you might have to partner up with someone unexpected. On Sunday, let it go and let it flow. Until the afternoon, the moon lingers in your twelfth house of closure and forgiveness. If you want to find some inner peace, Archer, stop rehashing the past and try to “accept the things you cannot change.” It doesn’t mean you have to like them, but table the topic for another time, much later in the future. Sunday afternoon, the moon shifts into your sign for two and a half days, rebooting your energy. You’ll feel back to your old self and ready to turn your focus in a different direction. How about dinner with a new friend? See the full week >
If a friend or associate approaches you with a deal that’s “too good to pass up” this Saturday, think long and hard before you bite. Of course, with your native Capricorn conservatism, you probably won’t be tempted to risk your hard-earned stash on a half-baked proposal anyway. As Mercury in your financial sector waves a warning flag at spontaneous Uranus, you’ll want to see hard evidence of anything before you even consider getting involved. You always trust the slow, steady—and reliable—way to prosper more than the prospect of making a quick buck. The moon lingers in your collaborative zone for the first part of Sunday, which is the ideal time for anything interactive. Take it upon yourself to organize a brainstorming brunch session with your creative crew. When the moon drifts into your relaxing twelfth house Sunday afternoon, you’ll feel more solitary. This low-key vibe will stretch over the next couple days, so pace yourself. It’s okay to reschedule after-work plans if you’d rather head home for some Netflix and comfort food. See the full week >
Lead with love Saturday, Aquarius! A warm and fuzzy mashup of your ruler, spontaneous Uranus, in your sentimental sector and expressive Mercury in your sign can deepen connections with your inner circle. If you thought you couldn’t get any closer, see what happens if you try! Open up and share a story about yourself that lives in the vault. When people see that you have a vulnerable side, they might be even more inclined to speak from THEIR hearts. Your charisma is on fire Sunday morning, and you’re feeling large and in charge. Divvy up chores and errands and walk any in-house cohabitators through your mission and how to support it. You know exactly what you’re doing. Later in the day, you might take a step back when the moon shifts into Sagittarius and your cooperative eleventh house. Trust your home team and collaborate rather than dictate. When socializing over the next couple days, adopt a “more the merrier” approach, and tell your friends to bring their friends. There could even be a surprising love connection afoot!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Got a message you’re dying to put out in the world? Don’t be so quick to fire off a round of tweets this Saturday. Free-spirited Uranus in your third house of communication is getting checked by messenger Mercury in your hazy twelfth house, begging you to pause, reflect and give those words an edit. In a few days, you’ll have more clarity. Then you can send an update to everyone on your contact list, maybe boldly broadcast to a few influencers in your field. The right word at the right time to the right person could be a game-changer, but first get clear about the right way to reach them. You might feel like a lone ranger on Sunday, but don’t cave to groupthink. Stay true to your vision, and you’ll gain a following—eventually—even if it takes more hard work and patience than you’re used to. Lay the foundation for your plans in the morning, then spend the afternoon putting those ideas in motion. On Sunday night, surround yourself with like-minded people who inspire your purpose and mission. Expanding your network could lead to a serendipitous encounter that helps launch your project to the masses. See the full week >
