You hate to follow the rules just for the sake of protocol, but sometimes, Aries, there’s a method to the “madness.” For one thing, there may be factors you’re not aware of, and rushing ahead could backfire. And today, with swaggering Jupiter in your public sector opposing big-mouthed Mercury, talking smack could cost you dearly. To protect your reputation and your colleagues’, stay humble and get the facts before you fling any accusations or even spill the wrong pot of tea behind closed doors. See the full week >
You may feel tethered by a highly opinionated person today, Taurus, but everyone’s entitled to their own point of view. And just like them, you’ve got a few staunch beliefs of your own! With Mercury and Jupiter clashing in your expressive and philosophical zones, there may be some lively debates in the air. The more you connect to your own truth, the stronger and more grounded you’ll feel. Should a discussion turn harsh or mean-spirited, remember, you don’t have to stick around. See the full week >
Pump the brakes, Gemini, if only to make sure they’re in proper working order. Today’s starmap may spur you to put the pedal to the metal and not let up! With Mercury in your sensual second house, you’re a sucker for anything that feels romantic or luxurious. But the buzzy planet is locked in an opposition with spontaneous Jupiter in your intense eighth house, so you might not have the best self-control. (Limits? What are those?) In romance and business, take the long view. If a potential union has merit, trust that it will stand the test of time. See the full week >
Interpersonal dynamics might be a little dodgy today, thanks to an opposition of Mercury in your sign and magnifier Jupiter in your relationship zone. Some people may not know where to draw the line in terms of demands and expectations, and the minute you give them an inch, they want 26.2 miles. Before you point the finger, check in with yourself and your willingness to go along. Dig deep to find some resilience (and even some of your famous argumentative resistance) and hold your ground. Ultimately, we teach others how to treat us and you don’t want anyone mistaking you for a pushover. See the full week >
Can you resist anything except temptation? If you’re trying to break a bad habit or start a healthy new one, you need to be extra strict with yourself, especially in the beginning, before the positive-feedback loop kicks in. Today, an opposition between bottomless Jupiter and compulsive Mercury threatens to chip away at your willpower. The trick: Focus on the REASONS you want to make this change rather than the behavior itself. Then, build in mini-milestone rewards. See the full week >
Don’t get sidetracked by other people’s antics today, Virgo, entertaining as they may be. You’ve got work that requires your full attention, and tuning in to the diva channel will only be a time-sucking disruption. Avoiding drama might be easier said than not done, though, with socially engaged Mercury opposing overblown Jupiter in your theatrical fifth house. Your own romantic life could be a source of intensity. Separate true highlights from high drama, and stay on-guard for narcissistic types who could prey on you in a moment of vulnerability.

You’re an open book today, Libra, but perhaps you should dog-ear a page and close it? You might be dancing on the edge of oversharing today as mouthy Mercury in your public sector faces off with candid Jupiter. Some things are better kept to yourself—and certain topics are best reserved for only your most intimate circle. Before you show all your cards, consider the benefits of keeping them closer to your chest. If there’s something you NEED to vent about, call a friend or someone who can listen objectively.

Brace yourself, Scorpio, because this is one of those days where real truth can be hard to get to. Today, as inquisitive Mercury faces off with candid Jupiter, you could find yourself scampering down a rabbit hole in pursuit of intel. But beware from the get-go that this could be a frustrating mission—if not a downright impossible one. If you can, allow people’s claims to stand, knowing that it’s up to you to decide how many grains of salt to take ‘em with. See the full week >
Trust your gut—and the figures on those spreadsheets—when it comes to making a deal today. You WANT to believe the other party’s promises, yet under a shady opposition of clever Mercury and optimistic Jupiter, that faith might be misbegotten. You know what they say about things that sound too good to be true. Keep your eyes—and feelers—attuned to potential red flags, like someone applying too much pressure or trying to rush things. If this IS a great opportunity, chances are it won’t evaporate overnight. See the full week >
Oversharer alert! As outspoken Jupiter locks horns with expressive Mercury, you may be tempted to let it all hang out with someone you’re still getting to know. Unless you want to wake up tomorrow with a giant vulnerability hangover, don’t be such an open book. It’s okay to share a few pages from your personal history. But when you’re done with one story, wait and let the other person reciprocate. That way, you won’t flood them with TMI and your connection can stay on an even keel. Boundaries have a purpose, even in the most intimate relationships. See the full week >
Remember, Aquarius: “No” is a complete sentence. You may feel a little helpless in the face of someone’s cogent persuasion, but it’s your sacred duty to resist. That might be a tad challenging, with excitable Jupiter clashing with compelling Mercury. Ask yourself: Who stands to benefit if you go along—and what do YOU stand to lose? Ultimately, you need to find the willpower to fight this person’s “emotional gravity” and walk away if necessary. In doing so, you’ll gain incalculable confidence. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Today, as expressive Jupiter and Mercury oppose in your sectors of group activity, playfulness and theatrics, stack the deck with more grounded people than bad actors. You’re not obligated to invite someone to join your group—or to go along with their crew. If you’re going to suffer silently as they dominate every conversation and pontificate, it’s better to leave them OFF the guest list. While you’re at it, check yourself to make sure you’re not the one hogging the mic. Flex your connectivity muscles instead of waging a battle of wits. See the full week >
