It’s easy to overshoot the mark today as the Sun and Jupiter face off and pump up your swagger to baller levels. Your ambition is always admirable, Aries, but ignoring protocol could mean stepping on the wrong person’s pedicured toes. At least for today, pay attention to the power pyramid and play the political game. Take time to add a personal touch to all your professional dealings. A few minutes of small talk—on a phone call or video chat—will be much more effective than an email and can give you the leading edge over a colleague. See the full week >
Opinions, opinions! Under today’s frustrating face-off between the Sun and Jupiter, people may confuse their POVs with empirical facts. So get ready for some spirited debates! Sure, you could learn something fascinating from a wise soul. Then there are people who seem immune to logic and proof. Don’t get caught up in senseless arguments with know-it-alls…or trolls! If you’re not sure where you stand on an issue, do some deeper research. Arm yourself with intel from credible sources, and you’ll be able to engage more effectively in the future.

You’re sexy and you know it, Gemini, but try not to lose your cool because some wildly flattering attention is coming your way. Today, as the Sun faces off with Jupiter in your intense eighth house, those live-for-the-moment adventures can lead you down an obsessive rabbit hole. Although you’re turned on and lit up, try to hold out for lasting value in all partnerships. Pacing yourself will also ensure that great connections don’t fizzle out prematurely. Apply this to business negotiations, and don’t give anyone the milk (or cream) for free! See the full week >
Today, people’s expectations (and soon, their demands!) might balloon out of proportion. Here’s the rub: This whole situation might be your “fault.” With the Sun and supersizer Jupiter working at cross-purposes, your ego could be out to prove something, leading you to take on responsibilities that are above your pay grade. Don’t get swept up in the competitive vibes: As has been said, pride goeth before a fall. Furthermore, you don’t need to exhaust yourself proving that you’re a good friend, respectful neighbor or employee of the year. If accepting an offer means burning yourself out in the process, just say no. See the full week >
“Just this once” are famous last words, Leo, and ones to utter selectively (if ever) under today’s expansive Sun-Jupiter opposition. Keep a cool head in the face of temptation, and when you feel boundaries start to blur, excuse yourself and get centered. Although you’d rather be naughty than nice, following rebellious urges can undermine your efforts. You’ve worked hard to put healthy habits in place and keep yourself on an even keel. Don’t undo all the progress in the heat of the moment. Engage your willpower and save yourself the pain! See the full week >
High drama could disrupt your day as a frenetic face-off between the Sun and supersizer Jupiter turns molehills into Annapurna-sized mountains. Keep your distance from people who always seem to be caught up in a crisis of their own making. Sure, they might be the most exciting friends in your circle at the moment. But if the invigorating highs are accompanied by crashing lows, their social capital won’t retain its value. (And being the go-to confidante for a narcissist gets old fast.) If nothing else, moving them to a safer distance will be a good way of reminding yourself that love should be a two-way street! See the full week >
Should you let it all hang out or reserve a bit of cool composure? Today’s face-off of the fearless Sun and oversharer Jupiter scrambles signals. Think twice before you broadcast every mood swing on social media or tweet vaguely about a brewing conflict and get all your friends worked up on your behalf. In professional affairs, keep communications strictly biz. Compartmentalizing may be necessary to keep your reputation intact. If you need to emote, slip off for a private lunch with a friend or take a walk and call a trusted family member. See the full week >
As the Sun plays tug of war with optimistic Jupiter, it’s hard to know if you’re seeing the truth or a projection of how you WANT things to be. Under this opposition, it’s too hard to discern, so don’t bother trying to crack the case on any unsolved mysteries. The best you can expect from people is a bunch of mixed messages or confusing sound bites. Although that can be frustrating for someone who loves to be in on all the juicy details. don’t read too deeply into other people’s texts or bizarre social media posts. Just pay attention to their actions, which today, speak much louder than their words. See the full week >
Deal or no deal? Don’t make any rash financial decisions today as the Sun opposes your galactic guardian, Jupiter, giving you a case of shiny-object syndrome. That “deal of the century” could turn out to be a scam or simply a guidepost that gets you closer to your heart’s true desire. Pay attention to red flags, like people pressuring you to grab a hot offer before you’ve had a chance to mull it over and check your bank balance. Research is warranted, especially when it comes to larger investments. Shop around: You might find a better price for a preferable version elsewhere. Good things do come to those who wait.

Even the most restrained Capricorn may struggle to keep things profesh today as the Sun faces off with loudmouthed Jupiter. Under this oversharing opposition, you’ll be more of a shameless raconteur than usual. While it’s great that you’re opening up, baring your tender soul requires savvy timing. Try not to test the waters of a budding connection with a candid confession or, worse, by spreading gossip. Instead, win people over with your supportive personality and by showing that you have their best interests at heart. After that, you can tell them (almost) anything. See the full week >
Your intuition may be screaming “Wait!” today, and as excessive Jupiter faces off with the optimistic Sun, you’d be wise to heed it. While you want to believe the best in people, do your gut checks. Make sure you aren’t trying to talk yourself into something that feels wrong—or just wrong for YOU. Perhaps you need a little more time to research and reflect on the situation. An extra shot of willpower may be required to ensure that you don’t get sucked into something out of excitement or a desire to people-please. Wait before replying to pushy types who try to force you to make a decision before you’re ready. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Not only is the more is NOT the merrier today, it could mean being upstaged by an attention-seeking narcissist. Don’t force yourself to include a “big personality” in your plans. You need to guard your precious group hangs from disruptive forces. Of course, with the Sun in your theatrical fifth house opposing live-out-loud Jupiter in your teamwork zone, it could be YOU who’s hogging the spotlight. Bring on the witty one-liners and wildly spontaneous whims. But remember, you’re gathering to connect with people, not be the unpaid entertainment. See the full week >
