Today’s mantra is “feel the fear and do it anyway.” You’ve been breaking a sweat trying to accomplish an epic goal, and you’re finally making some progress. However, as the Aries moon butts heads with unconscious Pluto, you need to guard against self-sabotage. Assuming new responsibilities to rise above the rest could give you cold feet and tempt you to undermine all the blood, sweat and tears you’ve invested so far. It’s normal to feel nervous when venturing into new territory, so cut yourself some slack. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. See the full week >
While you want to see the best in everyone, this is not the day to don those rose-colored glasses or rush into a relationship prematurely. As the moon gets sideswiped by shady Pluto, blithe optimism could get you into a situation that’s way more complicated than it appears. How much do you REALLY know about this person, Bull? You may be dazzled, charmed, even impressed—and that energy is a welcome break from the same old quarantine routine. But play detective before you dive in deeper. Today, you can discover a lot by simply asking a few thoughtful, open-ended questions. See the full week >
Appearances can be deceiving today as a moon-Pluto square muddles signals. You want to see the good in people, but someone on Team Twin may be more interested in advancing their own agenda than doing what’s best for the squad. Grrr. But hang on, Gemini: Is this a personality flaw…or is the culprit just having a self-absorbed moment? Don’t let your suspicious mind spiral out TOO far, or you could spin up a complex narrative that’s got little to do with fact. You’re going to have to let this play out one step at a time for people to reveal their true colors. See the full week >
Just when you’ve nailed down THE perfect solution, someone could test your patience by throwing a curveball into your plan—argh! But this person might just insuring that their voice and vision get included in the final outcome (and, okay, marking their turf a little). Locking horns will only be to your detriment, so keep your composure. Let this showboater do their song and dance. Once they’ve had some airtime, there will be space for you to chime in again.

Try not to cut people off mid-sentence today, even if you’re sure you already know what they are going to say. (You don’t.) With the impatient Aries moon getting checked by control freak Pluto, people could feel censored in your presence—and clearly, that won’t do much to foster open communication. Challenge yourself to set aside judgments and just listen. What if agreeing (or disagreeing) wasn’t the point, Leo, but instead, you worked to create a safe space for everyone to air their feelings?

Keep a few cards close to your vest today, Virgo. While you may prefer to be transparent from the get-go, your candor could be too much for new people to take in all at once. Reveal a little at a time instead of bowling them over with TMI or a ten-year forecast. When it comes to romance, you don’t have to default to your sweetie’s plans, especially if you’ve already come up with a great idea for a “shelter date.” Chatting up someone new? Don’t make yourself available at the drop of a hat. The combo of confidence and mystery is a hella seductive brew. See the full week >
A big part of you is up for adventure as the spontaneous Aries moon whirs through your convivial seventh house. But a curveball from controlling Pluto could put the kibosh on the fun. This may be a blessing in disguise though, Libra. Leaping first and asking questions later could leave you tangled up in something messy and dramatic. Ask for more information and get all the details. How much will this cost, and what, exactly, are you committing yourself to? You need actual data so you can make an informed choice instead of an emotional one. See the full week >
A deadline is creeping up, but don’t hit the panic button, Scorpio. Today, the frenetic Aries moon clashes with your ruler, hypervigilant Pluto, which may account for some of that anxiety. If you focus on everything that could go wrong, you’ll throw yourself into an unproductive tailspin. Instead of going down that unnecessary rabbit hole, take a deep breath and summon your inner project manager. First, identify what’s needed to get ‘er done and make a long master list. From there, map out a game plan with clear action steps, deliverables and due dates. And make sure everyone’s pulling their weight! With all hands on deck, you CAN pull this off. See the full week >
If you’re not asking for what you’re worth, Sagittarius, you’re selling yourself short. Under today’s clash between the entitled Aries moon and power-hungry Pluto, you could grow frustrated (make that enraged) watching someone with a fraction of your talent scoop up the rewards. Sometimes it takes a blow like this to wake you up, Archer. Don’t get mad; get even. It’s time to start positioning yourself for the same bounty. Do you need to add some polish to your presentation? You don’t have to go over-the-top glam—just add some shine to your front-facing image. See the full week >
Brace yourself, Capricorn, because critics could come out of the woodwork today. Or maybe they’re just concerned friends who are trying to be helpful? The thing is, you won’t know the difference as the touchy Aries moon clashes with vengeful Pluto in Capricorn and your first house of identity. If possible, stop yourself from clapping back when you feel judged. Your harsh response could damage an important relationship, and you won’t be able to justify it with “I was just defending myself.” You know how this works: An eye for an eye just leaves the whole world blind.

Think on your feet—and outside of the box! Your innovative skills will save the day under today’s moon-Pluto square. In addition to problem-solving, you might have to roll up your sleeves and put some muscle behind this. But if the load gets too heavy, let that be your cue to (A) call for backup, and (B) simplify the plan. What could you pull off in your pilot phase and what might be saved for version two? You can roll this out slowly and still dazzle, Aquarius. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Teamwork makes the dream work, Pisces, and if you hope to reach an ambitious goal, tap your support network today. But don’t keep going to the same three people for favors. Asking them for “just one more thing” could put a serious strain on your relationship. Reach out to friends who you’ve been generous with in the recent past. If you want to sidestep these kinds of entanglements altogether, it might make sense to pay for help (or barter) and keep everything clean. See the full week >
