Having friends in high places can give you high hopes, Aries. And today’s powerful mashup of social Mercury in your career corner and enchanting Neptune could bring recognition from prestigious people. By showing initiative and being willing to work harder, faster or longer than anyone else, you will win their support big-time. Become a regular at industry events and make meaningful small talk with the influential folks in your industry. If you need to get a loafer in the door, volunteer to work the registration booth of a conference and see who you meet. See the full week >
The best way to widen your range today, Taurus? Widen your social network! People are your best introduction to fascinating and useful new information, systems and approaches to problem-solving. It’s easy to get stuck in the same way of operating (especially for your fixed sign). But today’s expansive alignment of Mercury in your global ninth house and tuned-in Neptune in your collaboration corner helps you break down those walls and deepen your intellectual and cultural perspective.

Let’s hear it for the dudes—especially the ones who can advance your career! Today, Mercury aligns with Neptune in your tenth house of work, public image and all things masculine. Relax, Gemini: This isn’t about gender politics. It’s about acknowledging—and reaching out to—certain men who can be beneficial to your professional life, whether a mentor or a client. Give him your full attention and listen to what he has to say. You might have to endure some mansplaining, but there’s sure to be at least one pearl of wisdom in there. See the full week >
Your deep-feeling sign doesn’t skim the surface when it comes to your emotions, but today’s profound pairing of messenger Mercury and sensitive Neptune might reveal how shockingly deep your love can be. There’s no reason to struggle to maintain a calm, cool façade—at least not with one special relationship. In fact, if you’ve been holding back, that might be limiting where this could go. Take a risk, Cancer, and let this person see the full extent of your sentimental nature! See the full week >
No one will accuse you of being melodramatic today, Leo! Things truly are intense for you as you try to surf giant waves on your own private emotion ocean. Mercury may be in grounded Capricorn, but it’s connected to bottomless Neptune in your eighth house of intense feelings. The overpowering force of your own sensitivity may surprise you. But all the “talking yourself down” in the world won’t make this go away. If you’re in a committed relationship, let your partner know what you’re going through. See the full week >
Single Virgos will have a field day today, as Mercury in earthily sensual Capricorn and your passion house teams up with fantasy-fueled Neptune in your relationship corner. The flirting opportunities will be epic—and the cast of potential characters limitless—but if you’re looking for someone with “keeper” potential, quickly rule out anyone with “player” or “taken” all over them. Trust your gut—and remember that a Google background check never hurts. See the full week >
You may not start the day expecting to play therapist to half your office, but that might be the case under today’s sympathetic starmap. A sensitive fourth-house moon is cavorting with empathic Neptune in your healing zone. Like it or not, yours are the deltoids everyone wants to cry on. Two important cosmic directives: Because you have your own work to get done, limit people to five minutes at a pop (until tonight)—and don’t wear anything that could get stained from all those tears!

Guard your heart, Scorpio! (As IF we have to warn you to do that.) Actually, you might be slightly off your game today, as a susceptible-to-sweet-talk sextile of compelling Mercury and soft-hearted Neptune occurs in your houses of communication and passion. You’ll be prone to believing what people say, and a manipulative smooth talker could win you over with too much flattery. Enjoy the temptation—and the flattery—but until people’s loyalty points have been earned, take their grandiosity with a grain of salt. See the full week >
Your generous sign tends to give without thinking about the bottom line, which is (one of) your many great qualities. But today’s planetary lineup flashes a warning sign not to play fast and loose with your cash. With Mercury in cautious Capricorn synced up with boundary-challenged Neptune, you might confuse caring with sharing. You don’t have to pay someone’s way to show your affection. And if they try to guilt you into it, pause to consider whether they’re as good a friend as you initially thought. See the full week >
Don’t resort to “truth embroidery” to impress a colleague or seal a deal. It’s never a good idea to enhance the facts, but under today’s hazy moon-Neptune merger, you might not even realize what you’re doing. If you find yourself getting a little carried away with a sales pitch, interrupt yourself and stop! Whether you’re trying to sell a customer a questionable new product or persuade someone to come over to your way of thinking, be sure you can stand behind it 100 percent. Less than that, back down!

No matter how busy your schedule is today, Aquarius, it’ll be worth your while to carve out a little time to take care of a financial issue. If one of your insurance payments went MIA or there’s a mystery charge on your credit card statement, don’t put it off. Mercury aligns with Neptune in your money zone, which can help you get to the bottom of this. But it could require some patience, so make sure you have some work to do while you’re waiting on infinity hold as the agent tries to reach a supervisor. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
If you’ve been hoping to break into a new social group or become an official member of an organization, today’s the day to take action! Empathic Neptune in your sign is aligned with social Mercury in your eleventh house of group activities. Your sensitive nature will be apparent to everyone, as will your quiet charm and wit. You may have to screw up your courage, but you’ll be able to drift from one group to another and blend in seamlessly. Any “outsider” feelings you may have are totally in your head!
