Make no apologies for being in a positive headspace today as the Aries moon spins through your self-empowered first house. Find a little time for your passion projects and focus on the activities that bring YOU joy. Have you been avoiding frank discussions and playing it safe? Stop being diplomatic and start being authentic. Your straight-shooting approach might raise a few eyebrows, but in the end, your inner circle knows they have your unconditional support.

Keep sensitive data under wraps today, Taurus. With the moon floating in your enigmatic twelfth house, it’s difficult to intuit people’s true motivations. Is someone genuinely offering support…or are they cleverly digging for confidential intel? This is not the day to reveal future plans to anyone outside your innermost circle, and even then, Taurus…. It’s human nature to let things “slip,” so if you don’t want certain details getting out into the public, it’s best to just keep ‘em to yourself. See the full week >
Fostering connections only requires one thing today: a dose of that Gemini wit. And with the moon whirring through your communal eleventh house, it’s the perfect day to reconnect with some friends you haven’t seen since March. Instead of making excuses for being out of touch, own that you’ve been AWOL and lead with humor. People will find it hard to stay mad at you—especially when you turn the lens on them and start asking about their lives. See the full week >
Put your phone in airplane mode and take a time-out from social media. With the moon whirring through your career zone, you’ll FINALLY be able to tune out the distractions and make headway on projects that demand your undivided attention. Don’t let anyone pop your productivity bubble! If your WFH office doesn’t have a door, put on your headphones and pump up the motivational jams. If you ride this hyper-focused wave, you’ll have something major to toast at the Zoom happy hour. See the full week >
Want to reach your goals faster? Focus on the big picture today, Leo. With the moon lighting up your visionary ninth house, you don’t want to get lost in the weeds. Instead, get clear about your overall direction and make sure you’re heading down the right path. Since the ninth house also rules education and travel, scan the horizon for wider opportunities. Is there a class or workshop that could make you more competitive in the marketplace? And might it involve an opportunity to check out a new city when “this” is over? Use your downtime proactively so you can make the leap when restrictions lift. See the full week >
Under today’s forthright Aries moon, someone may open up to you about sensitive personal matters. You’re used to people coming to you for advice, but you weren’t necessarily expecting it to come from THIS buttoned-up source. Treat their trust as an honor and keep any secrets under lock and key. Elsewhere, someone may test YOUR loyalty by asking you to gossip about a mutual acquaintance. Remain diplomatic and resist the impulse to give “feedback.” Your code of honor might frustrate people, but you’ll retain their respect in the end. See the full week >
Who cares if it’s a Monday? With today’s Aries moon lighting up your partnership house, you’ll find it hard to put your head down and focus on detail work. Rejig your schedule, putting social tasks front and center. If you’re single, you might connect to someone who shares your cultural passions. Maybe they’ve got the same Spotify playlists as you or have their Kindle loaded with all your favorite books. Already bae’d up? Switch up your nightly routine. Instead of dinner and a movie, how about a long walk to pick up takeout and support a locally owned business? See the full week >
Details, details! Break out the magnifying glass because even the smallest things deserve your attention under today’s incisive moon in your sixth house. Here’s the good news: Getting down to brass tacks is one of your specialties. Make it your mission to complete important chores with customized flourish. Even if you don’t see results immediately, trust that going the extra mile will give you the competitive edge. Do you have an important meeting on the books? Warm up the Zoom room with engaging small talk, and you’ll be set up for success. See the full week >
Feeling Instagram-shy? Snap the first selfie, and you’ll be back in the game as today’s Aries moon shimmers in your flamboyant fifth house. Search your closet for your most daring pieces. You have what it takes to pull off “runway outre,” and who knows? Your sartorial flair could grab the attention of a style blogger who wants to do a split-screen IGTV interview with you. With this lunar lift turning on your love light, a successful right swipe could get the party started. Be staunch with your standards! You need someone who meets you on your level. Attached? Take time to pamper yourself, and you’ll feel more like romantic partners than roommates. See the full week >
Under today’s Aries moon, you can bask in the spotlight, but don’t forget to use your starpower to help others shine. Your endorsement is a powerful force, Capricorn, and a good word from you can help them rise to their greatness. Can you hustle on behalf of your gifted people? Maybe you could connect them with a friend who is hiring someone with their skill set, or advise as they take a crucial project to the finish line. Little things mean everything. Your vote of confidence—or just a “you’ve got this!”—pep talk can snap one of your homies out of a slump. See the full week >
Criticism CAN be valuable, Aquarius—and we’re not just talking about the unsolicited (albeit it humorous) feedback you’ve been known to dole out. (Glug.) Before you push a project to the next stage, seek objective insight. Instead of Googling for advice and answers, reach out to a few trusted mentors. Maybe you could hop on a 30-minute call (and have lunch delivered to their home) as you run your ideas past them. Pro tip: Source opinions from a diverse pool. The final decision is yours to make, but viewing your plan from different angles could lead to an unexpected breakthrough. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
It may be too late to reverse past “mistakes,” but that doesn’t mean your future isn’t bright. Feeling like a rejected proposal still has potential? Start reworking your idea. This time around, avoid any shortcuts and put in the elbow grease required to bring your vision to life. And give some love to your closest relationships. Nothing beats a good old-fashioned one-on-one, so go for a social-distance stroll or set up time to get on a video chat. Don’t get pulled into small talk for too long. Today, you can direct the conversation into the deeper waters you prefer to swim in. See the full week >
