Slow and steady wins the race, Aries, so don’t get swept up in the competition. Today’s moon in Taurus provides an ongoing flow of fuel to keep you productive—but a clash with Venus in your community sector will be distracting. Pop on your biggest pair of headphones and focus on one task at a time. Instead of checking your Facebook or Insta feed every five minutes, take social media breaks as a reward after ticking off each task. Feeling overwhelmed? Break a daunting project down into smaller steps. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but you can start working on a Doric column or laying a few pieces of marble today. See the full week >
Your swagger could reach legendary heights today, but pay attention to the power pyramid before strutting into the room like you own it. While the moon in Taurus is giving you unrestrained confidence, the showy planet gets checked by Venus in laid-back Aquarius. Self-assurance is great, but if you come across as egotistical, you could alienate someone more experienced or higher up on the professional food chain. Stay humble even if you ARE in charge. Better yet, shine the spotlight on other people’s capabilities as much as on your own. See the full week >
Too many windows open! System overload! Today, the moon in your boundless twelfth house tussles with distractible Venus in your ninth house of expansion. If you’ve been spreading yourself too thin, you could be on the verge of a meltdown. Avert disaster by streamlining and bowing out of projects or commitments that aren’t high priorities. Be careful about putting all your eggs in one basket. It’s great to be optimistic, but have a backup plan. A change of scenery would be restorative, so if you can slip out of town for a night or two, definitely do! See the full week >
The more could very well be the merrier today, Cancer—as long as you curate your crew with discernment. The moon is in your teamwork zone, making it easy to click with new acquaintances. Simultaneously, Venus is holding court in your intimacy sector, hitting the brakes on these insta-lovefests. Though your new bonds might have legs, the reality is, you don’t know these people well enough to share vulnerable personal data. By the time the day wraps, you may need to share revelations that only loyal confidantes should be privy to. Bear that in mind before adding the newbies to your guest list. See the full week >
Your ambitious nature comes to the fore under today’s Taurus moon, so start the workweek with a bold career move. Send off a pitch deck, get a power lunch on the books for next week, sign up for an industry networking event. If you need some quick advice or a reference, call on your friends in high places to help you open the doors to success. But know when to turn off the shoptalk, Leo. Your dinner date doesn’t need a detailed preview of the week’s upcoming dramas. Changing the subject will be good for YOU too! See the full week >
Once bitten, twice shy? You may feel hesitant about dipping your toe back in certain waters due to a previous letdown. Today’s moon in your optimistic ninth house helps you see the higher lesson in the disappointing situation. Although you’re bummed, get back on that horse, Virgo, knowing it’s safe to take a gamble once again. Instead of cursing your past hurts, think of them as a beacon that will illuminate better choices as you forge ahead. Do something healing for yourself tonight, whether that’s attending a gentle yoga class, going to visit a friend or dancing your cares away. See the full week >
You’re playing for keeps today, Libra, and why not? If you feel THIS passionately about a situation, it makes sense that you’d want it to last. Careful, though! You could overwhelm people by coming on too strong. Seduce and attract rather than chase fiercely after your target. If you create a compelling environment, you’ll naturally magnetize folks into your orbit. Just remember: This isn’t about bending over backwards to win anyone over (even if you make it look so easy). Stay true to yourself throughout, and you’ll draw the right people your way. See the full week >
If you’ve been sweeping relationship issues under the rug, look out, Scorpio! The emotional debris will demand your attention under today’s tense angle between Venus and the moon. Face the music, even if you’d rather hit mute. Before you initiate a heart-to-heart, talk to a savvy friend who can help you distill what’s REALLY bugging you. This isn’t an excuse to vent. If you want to work through the matter, get real about your role in the breakdown. It does take two to tango, you know. Once you feel that you can comfortably own up to your part, summon your other half for a sit-down. See the full week >
This is a highly productive day for you, Sagittarius, but your stress levels could also skyrocket. Combat the cortisol flood with endorphins and nutritional eating. Before your blood pressure rises and you slam your laptop closed in frustration, take a break and hit the gym—or go for a vigorous walk to get centered and clear your head. Swap your fast fixes for healthy foods today. Snack on raw almonds and fresh fruit; opt for green tea instead of a sugary coffee drink. Health is wealth, and that includes hanging out with grounded and nurturing people. See the full week >
Lights, camera, action! You’re a total scene-stealer today, and with the Taurus moon lighting your dramatic fifth house, an unexpected moment of fame could come your way. On the downside, you’re also prone to “live dramatizations.” You could easily blow a situation out of proportion or make it out to be more important than it actually is. While it’s fine to self-promote, make sure your bragging doesn’t turn into The Capricorn Show. Give other people room to shine as well; in fact, helping them gain attention will make your beams that much brighter. See the full week >
Even if you utterly adore people, familiarity can breed contempt if you don’t set up healthy boundaries. With today’s moon in Taurus activating your moody fourth house, your fuse is a lot shorter than usual. Forget trying to be nice and polite—that will only leave you seething with resentment. If you need some room to breathe, be honest about it. Don’t invite anyone to join your plans out of guilt or obligation. It’s not your job to provide people with a social life, Aquarius, or to play babysitter to any socially awkward adults! See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Tag team time! Today’s moon in your house of dynamic duos could bring a “person of interest” your way. While the spark is more likely to be platonic than romantic, joining forces could turn out to be an ideal solution for both of you. Got a writing or media project in the works? Dive in as the Taurus moon brings clever ideas and turns of phrase: Write that blog post, record the YouTube vid, get started on the treatment for your first short film. Tonight, soak up inspiration by checking out an Oscar-nominated movie or comedy improv night. See the full week >
