Trying to impress people, Aries? In your eagerness to please, you could wind up vulnerable to the demands of a love interest or a colleague. Worse, your own important plans may fall by the wayside. While you don’t mind putting in a 200 percent effort, when you give too much of yourself, you wind up drained. Today, put up healthy boundaries and don’t do more than your best friend would advise you is realistic. If you don’t feel comfortable with a flat-out no, negotiate a counteroffer. You DO have some wiggle room here. See the full week >
Hulu and pizza delivery AGAIN? If a relationship is feeling stagnant, who better than take-charge Taurus to shake things up? Research barbecue marinades and summer cocktail recipes and plan a fun cookout for two—or ten (if you can safely distance yourselves)! Unattached? Today’s friendly moon-Mercury merger could bless you with a lucky swipe. Don’t roll your eyes at the dating apps or convince yourself it’s impossible during this time. Stimulating conversations can be a sultry building block for deeper (and sexier) intimacy. See the full week >
Tuning in to a partner comes naturally to you, the zodiac’s Twin, and today, your keen listening prevents molehills from turning into mountains. If a BFF or bae is in need of help, it’s almost reflexive for you to start spouting off your unconventional brand of wisdom. But wait! Before you go brainstorming, ask questions. It’s possible that your people have already worked out the perfect solution and only need a motivating vote of confidence. A simple “you’ve got this, babe!” can work wonders! See the full week >
Don’t be too quick to get defensive with your partner or friends today, Cancer. You love a good discussion and appreciate intelligent feedback. Make the most of today’s connection between the emotional moon and communication planet Mercury in your sign and open up a conversation about the relationship. Ask for some feedback on how they’re feeling about things. What you hear is likely to surprise you, so try to clear your mind instead of waiting to hear a specific answer. See the full week >
It’s not like you, confident Leo, to fret about other people’s opinions. But the feedback you’re getting from a close friend is causing you to doubt yourself. Since you trust this person’s opinion, the lack of validation is doing a number on your self-confidence. Rather than get all bent out of shape, be proactive and open up a dialogue. Could it be you’ve misread the signals or took a critique the wrong way? And if they ARE being too harsh, you can thank them for sharing (and caring), then ask them to soften their delivery with future input. See the full week >
Is there a disconnect between the intensity of your feelings and your ability to articulate them? Today’s connection between the moon and your ruler, verbose Mercury, helps close that gap. If you’ve been keeping opinions to yourself because you’re afraid of hurting people’s feelings, examine your motives. Are you scared that you won’t be liked as much? Let that go, Virgo, and uncensor yourself. The message you have to share is too meaningful to keep bottled up. If people disagree, just let it be the spark of an important dialogue. And if certain friends can’t handle the real talk, perhaps it’s time to broaden your social horizons. See the full week >
You don’t do things by half measure, Libra: not at work and certainly not with your emotions. That’s a recipe for imbalanced scales! And today, with the moon making a strong angle to communication planet Mercury, you’ll be in sync with your mate or love interest. While you may be ready to play Truth or Dare, the other party might not be prepared to share the whole story. If you approach with a gentle touch and slowly draw some honest confessions out, you could take things to a whole new level. See the full week >
Obsessing over granular details again? While this may be “the Scorpio way,” it’s not going to do anything positive for your relationships today. It’s easy to find fault with others, especially as they get closer to your heart…and spend more time in your exacting line of vision. But in the interest of keeping the peace (and everyone’s sanity), focus on the things you love about them instead of picking at their “flaws.” Sure, you’re only trying to shield loved ones from the cruel outside world. But you may be breaking down their confidence with your helpful hints. Try positive reinforcement instead! See the full week >
Step up to the plate, Archer, because today’s simpatico mashup of the moon and messenger Mercury wants you to express yourself like a powerhouse. Step into the lead and share your opinions with confidence. Swagger is not a bad thing—as long as you keep your ego out of it. Don’t get bent out of shape by a little competition. Your originality is hard to replicate. But if you’re leaking too many “trade secrets,” this could be the wakeup call you need to pay closer attention to the company you keep. While you’re at it, take care to protect intellectual property with the right legal documentation. See the full week >
Inspiration strikes like a lightning bolt thanks to a friendly connection between the moon and nimble Mercury. If you’ve been spinning your wheels, this is a red-hot day for busting out of stultifying routines. You may have to try something that makes you uncomfortable, which is not easy for your cautious sign. But how will you ever grow if you only do things that you can easily ace? Let yourself break that sweat, Capricorn, and even make a “fool” out of yourself in the beginning. With a little practice, you’ll make it back to your usual post—at the top of the game!

While you’d prefer to keep interactions light and breezy, today’s connection between the moon and communication planet Mercury pushes you into deeper waters. It might be YOU who winds up initiating serious conversation simply because it’s the only way to get an important point across! If the person you’re talking to seems uncomfortable with the prodding or revelations, go in gently. You don’t have to describe gruesome details or spill every sordid secret from your personal history. If a scar hasn’t fully healed, you might wait before discussing that wound. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You like to know exactly where you stand, Pisces, but lately, one relationship is giving you major agita. Rather than lose sleep wondering whether this is going to turn into the happily-ever-after of your fantasies, make a date to talk things out. Knowing the truth—whatever it is—is better for your mental health than perpetually guessing. Single Fish should grab opportunity by the horns, and not let an innuendo go unreturned. Give people a chance to show you their true colors by playing along for a bit. See the full week >
