Feeling a little passive-aggressive there, Aries? Today, romantic Venus has a scuffle with sacrificial Neptune, which could churn up some buried resentment. Don’t insist that “everything’s fine” if you’re stewing inside. This may all be a big misunderstanding, but if you want to clear the air, you’ll have to extend the benefit of the doubt. Plan to explain your point of view—yes, again since this is the third in a trio of Venus-Neptune squares that began May 3—and even if you THINK you’ve been crystal-clear. For good measure, ask people to repeat back what you’ve said, and don’t be surprised if they missed half of it! See the full week >
Get ready for some scrambled signals around money today, thanks to a vexing Venus-Neptune square, the third in a trio that began on May 3. Who knew that when you said “We should grab lunch sometime,” the other person assumed you were footing the bill? This kind of miscommunication is par for the course today. Should you find yourself in the unexpected role of benefactor, you COULD attempt to correct the misunderstanding. But if it’s just for a few bucks, don’t make an issue out of it. You won’t remember the money, but your friend or colleague will remember your bean-counting moment. Just vow to be clearer about the expectations next time. See the full week >
Career crisis alert! Today, the third (and final!) in a trio of confusing squares between values-driven Venus in Gemini and foggy Neptune could leave you questioning your entire life path. You’re no stranger to the random identity switch, Gemini, but any moves you make now are sure to be muddled. Before you submit your resignation or start contacting recruiters, take a deep breath. This IS a good day for soul-searching and scaling back on your workload if you’re stressed. But it’s definitely not the time to make any irrevocable decisions about your future. Sleep on it, Gemini!
Information overload! Today, the final in a trio of tense Venus-Neptune squares shift your already-addled brain into hyperdrive. A steady stream of calls, emails and other interruptions could invade your bliss bubble. Think twice before picking up the phone for that crisis-junkie friend who’s stuck in a complaint spiral. This person may want to rope you into their hysteria, getting you all worked up over a totally inflated micro-drama. Unless you like wasting your own precious time, we suggest you send the energy vampires (yes, even the ones you’re related to) straight to voicemail. See the full week >
They’re just not that into you…or are they? Who can tell, with today’s befuddling Venus-Neptune square? For the third (and final!) time since May 3, your Spidey senses could be picking up an attraction or some frisson of chemistry. But this person is determined to play it cool, making it impossible to take things any further. Maybe you’re the one playing the cat-and-mouse games, Leo. A little dynamic tension is definitely sexy, but don’t mess with people’s minds. In a relationship? Bring on the sensual healing. Affectionate gestures can dissolve drama—just go in gently.

Is there a clear future between you and an important person? Today is a tricky time to discuss it, so take a deep breath and be patient, Virgo. You may want to map out five-year plans or lock down guarantees. But you could feel out of sync with a romantic or business partner, wondering if you’re on the same long-term page. Even more intense? Crisis-junkie Neptune is squaring amorous Venus for the third (and last!) time in 2020, stirring up an old childhood memory where you felt abandoned or invisible. Yikes! Take time to journal about your feelings or get a cathartic confidence boost from a compassionate friend. But while you process this temporary insecurity, it’s best to put those “what’s next for us?” conversations in the parking lot for a few days. See the full week >
A little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing, so do your fact-checking and research, Libra. Today, a clash between your ruler, compassionate Venus, and smoke-machine Neptune could lead you down a trail of false leads. Don’t play expert if you haven’t earned that status. If you’re sharing information, do so responsibly. State that it worked for YOU, but don’t present it as the holy grail that will heal the world. This advice goes both ways: Beware the self-appointed guru bearing magical remedies. Snake oil sales may be an emerging market, but it’s not one you want to invest in. See the full week >
Feels on wheels? Your emotions are like a runaway train today, Scorpio—and if you don’t pause to listen to them, they could take you on a wild ride. Chalk it up to the third in 2020’s trio of challenging squares between tender-hearted Venus and crisis-junkie Neptune. Ease gently into your day and avoid the tendency to autopilot into hustling or doing it all by your lonesome. Instead, start tapping into the resources around you, particularly the human ones. Trying to be a one-person show may be the source of your stress. Sure, you can be the shining star, but you’ll have a better time if you enlist some stagehands to manage things behind the scenes.

Guilt trips are NOT the kind of “couples’ getaway” you’re into, Sagittarius. But that won’t stop someone you adore from trying to send you on one today! A manipulative angle between sensitive Venus and sacrificial Neptune could find someone playing (and preying) on your emotions. This is the third time since May 3 that these planets have squared—and thankfully the last time they’ll meet like this in 2020. So don’t fall for the crocodile tears. You don’t have to dish out tough love, but DO recognize when someone is throwing a pity party—and RSVP with a firm no. This advice goes both ways: If you need attention or affection, there’s no need to use underhanded tactics to get it. Be direct and just ask for it! See the full week >
Micromanaging your relationships again, Capricorn? A tense square between Venus and paranoid Neptune—the final in a trio that began on May 3—could bring out your inner control freak. But what, exactly, are you getting so worked up about? If you stop and think about it, you might realize that YOU aren’t even sure. Sweating the small stuff is never worth the energetic output. That said, don’t ignore your intuition entirely. Maybe someone on your team isn’t pulling their weight or you sense that something is “off” with your romantic interest. Relax and don’t jump to conclusions. Just stay calm and quietly observe everything. A savvy solution will emerge. See the full week >
Wallet check! The third (and last!) in 2020’s trio of befuddling Venus-Neptune squares reminds you that pleasure often comes at a (steep) price. Whether you’ve been splurging on lavish takeout or limited-edition athleisure for your WFH wardrobe, all that spending could catch up with you today. Look deeper, Aquarius: Are you trying to soothe away difficult feelings with all these purchases? While there’s a lot of tough stuff to process in the world, the support you need won’t come in a two-day delivery box. Fortunately, it’s a lot less expensive than that, so call up your most trusted advisor for a heart to heart. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
It’s not hard to make a Pisces feel guilty, especially when it comes to your family. Today’s clash between compassionate Venus and paranoid Neptune could take emotional manipulation to a whole new level. Brace yourself for potential “mama drama” or for serious heartstring yanking. Your compassionate side will want to rush in for the save, but watch out for enabling behavior. This is the third (and last!) time Venus squares Neptune in 2020, so you may already have some facility in dealing with this. If you really want to end this draining dynamic, you have to stop playing into it. Don’t feed the monster, Pisces! Remember this: “No” is a complete sentence. See the full week >
