Who are the people in your neighborhood? Try not to walk around in a tech trance today. You can still be cordial, even if it’s awkward to say hi to new people while you’re wearing masks. But with today’s friendly Gemini moon, good things could come from saying hello to the person you keep politely passing on your morning walks—or the lady who lives a couple doors down from you. Who knows? This could be the start of a new friendship or a future pet-sitting exchange. See the full week >
Your lavish appetite doesn’t have to suffer because funds are tight, Taurus—not with your creativity and charm. Be a “budget bacchanalian” and shop for those deals you love. (Who pays full price anymore anyway? Bah!) Even if you have to pony up the full amount for a few items on the list, you can harness the rest from auctions or resale. Don’t overlook the barter system, Bull. If you have a valuable skill or service to offer, it might be your strongest bargaining chip for that discount—or full-on exchange. See the full week >
Grab the proverbial megaphone and be the motivating force of Team Gemini today. There’s no one better than a Twin to pull the squad out of their gloomy pessimism and get them back on course with an important mission. The trick? While you don’t want to gloss over what’s happened in the past, keep everyone’s attention on the future you’re co-creating. If you paint a bright picture of what you’re all setting out to accomplish, it will be easier to get people into action. Remain committed to this vision and you’ll cause a brilliant U-turn before the day is through. See the full week >
Take a breather from laborious tasks and let your imagination flow. Under a dreamy but energizing moon-Mars combo, you won’t be terribly productive no matter how much you force it. So just surrender, Cancer. Wander away from your desk and soak in some fresh creative inspiration. Whether you’re reading a book by the pool, compiling playlists or doing a closet edit for a friend, you’ll be motivated by anything artsy. Stay off social media unless you have to be on for work. Let today’s influences be more tactile than digital. See the full week >
Is your big idea doable or…not? More research is required if you want to figure that out. Set a timer for online searches so you don’t lose three hours in a Google/Instagram/YouTube wormhole…or get diverted into dress shopping when you were trying to source materials for a home reno project. Don’t be shy about asking experts to weigh in. While you might have to pay a coach or consultant for an hour of their time, don’t be stubbornly frugal. Their guidance will save you money on the back end—not to mention cutting hours of frustrating test runs out of the equation. See the full week >
It’s clear that people want you as their commander in chief, Virgo, and that probably has something to do with the fact that you emanate confident, capable vibes from every pore. Today, don’t shy away from any nominations—or even an inner calling to take the lead. Initially, you might feel vulnerable being in such a public position, especially since the success of the mission will rest on your shoulders. Don’t let perfectionism and self-doubt stop you from stepping up. Remember that great leaders keep a tribunal of advisers at hand, and if you want to pinpoint a co-chair, that’s also an option.

If it feels like you’re “locked out of heaven,” perhaps you’re simply knocking on the wrong door. Someone you had high hopes for isn’t the angel you expected them to be, and that’s okay. Instead of trying to make the most of it, move on to another option or look in a completely new direction for your fix. Someone from a different social scene could extend a compelling invite, so mark yourself as “Going.” All that’s required, Libra, is an open mind and a willingness to be adventurous. Drop your assumptions and try! See the full week >
If you could bottle seduction, Scorpio, you’d probably be a millionaire by now, but unfortunately, your formula rarely works when other people apply it. And that goes both ways. If you’ve been following someone else’s strategy, results could be falling short. The simple truth is that the best way to be alluring is to simply be yourself. No, not everyone will be magnetized by your mojo, but the people who are compatible will feel the click. Being true to yourself today might clear space in your schedule for some fresh faces to come in. Let the chips fall where they may. See the full week >
Ditch the cool demeanor, Sagittarius, especially if you’re percolating with passion. Authenticity is the only way for your truth-bearing sign to get your point across. Your willingness to let it all hang out makes you incredibly attractive, and other people are sure to take note. Do you want to get involved with a new activist group or ask your crush to meet you for a walk? Do drop more than a mere hint to express your interest. Even if you’re feeling like a gushy superfan, don’t hold back. Praise and compliments are door-openers. This is the way to woo them! See the full week >
Charity isn’t the only thing that begins at home. Today, you can sharpen your leadership acumen by taking care of business at Chateau Capricorn. Organize your physical space and rally the people under your roof into a more cohesive unit. Are duties equally distributed? Is everyone pulling their weight? Sort it out so no one (read: you) winds up feeling like a martyr. Then apply that same discipline with coworkers. Where could you do a better job of delegating or clarifying your long-range vision with people on your team? See the full week >
Creative ideas are brimming over, thanks to an energizing angle between the moon and Mars in the most imaginative and communicative parts of your chart. In addition to capturing these seeds of genius, find a platform to broadcast them on. Maybe you don’t share them with the entire Twittersphere (or maybe you do), but at least run them by a small, select audience. If you’ve been pondering a podcast, shop around for mics in your price range or play around with apps like Anchor or GarageBand. Your words carry weight. Chime in to discussions and share your unique POV. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Use your power of persuasion to make a strong appeal today. You have the ability to tap into people’s deepest emotions, stirring their compassion for a cause and raising their awareness on an issue that needs amending. No one can deliver an impassioned speech quite like you, Pisces. Cue cards not required; just speak from the heart. You might get a standing ovation along with a flood of donations and support.
