Need to clear the air with one of your besties? Saturday’s sync-up of the moon and harmonizing Venus sets the stage for healing communication. But don’t rush to slap a Band-Aid on the issue. Since Venus is retrograde, you have an opportunity to dive in and deal with the underlying issue. Just remember that it takes two to tango. You probably played a part in creating the tension—perhaps by rushing to assumptions or not REALLY listening to what your friend was trying to express. Start by asking questions, and make sure you listen to the responses with an open mind! Sunday’s moon in Cancer could find you craving comfort, but what’s underneath that urge? You may be numbing out with snacking or binge-watching instead of dealing with your feelings. Avoidance won’t make the angst go away, especially if it’s wreaking havoc on your well-being. Reach out to a close friend or trusted relative to work out what’s been bothering you. You prefer to shoulder the tough stuff on your own, but in this case, you could use some outside guidance.

When’s the last time you treated yourself to something luxurious, Taurus? Okay, maybe it was just yesterday, but we’re not judging. On Saturday, the moon aligns with your ruler, beautifying Venus, granting you a free pass to splurge on a pleasure or two. You’re always happiest when surrounded by beauty, so honor your sensual and aesthetic nature. But check the return policy! With Venus retrograde, your tastes could fluctuate faster than “Prime” time, or the product may not look anything like it did on that Instagram ad. Sunday’s challenge: reserving judgment until you’ve heard every angle of the story. Your instinct will be to jump to conclusions or take sides, but don’t! You never know: That cranky or unfriendly person could be struggling with a tough personal issue. Be compassionate, not critical. If your negative assessment ends up being correct, then you can confront them. But if kindness turns out to be the cure, you might end up forging a deeper friendship. See the full week >
Not only is the moon in Gemini this Saturday, but it’s making contact with decadent, romantic Venus, who is retrograde in your sign. Under this nostalgic transit, you’ll long for the “good old days” (aka February 2020) when you could mingle freely with friends, Tinder dates, intriguing strangers…whomever! Don’t sweep those feelings under the rug. Instead, call up a friend and get real about any disappointment you’re feeling around deferred dreams. But make space in the conversation for the creative solutions that are bound to emerge once you feel your feelings. Sunday’s moon in your money house draws your financial goals into the spotlight. You may have to pull some purse strings a little tighter, but don’t underestimate the power of communication. Look through your bills: Is there anyone you could call to work out a new payment arrangement? It’s worth a try. See the full week >
Have you maybe, possibly, been coming down a little too hard on someone in your life? Setting boundaries is important, Cancer, but in the process, you might have built a fortress around your heart. Saturday’s sync-up of the moon and retrograde Venus lands in your twelfth house of compassion. Suddenly you’re seeing the situation from the other person’s side. (Glug.) Soften your stance and make space for dialogue…and don’t be surprised if you hear something new. The moon swings into Cancer on Sunday, renewing your enthusiasm. Channel your can-do spirit into a project that got sidelined. Just don’t take on anything TOO all-consuming since you’ll work best in short “sprints” instead of marathon sessions. See the full week >
On Saturday, you may find yourself teetering on the edge of the friend zone—or nudging someone there—as the moon syncs up with retrograde Venus in your laid-back (but more platonic than romantic) eleventh house. But just because feelings are cooling now doesn’t mean they won’t heat up again. Don’t make any impulsive moves. This day could find you reevaluating some of your non-romantic connections and associations. Does everyone in your inner circle deserve a seat at the table? You may revoke a few privileges from people who aren’t pulling their weight. The moon nestles into Cancer on Sunday, giving you a pass to relax. The ambitious plans you put on the calendar could suddenly feel overwhelming, and that’s okay! Sink into chill mode and trust that productivity will return when the moon heads into Leo on Tuesday. Until then, rest and recharge. See the full week >
Could your professional presentation use a little polish? As the moon syncs up with Venus retrograde in your career zone this Saturday, you may want to do a little work on your “branding” or public presentation. It’s not like you have to change everything all at once, Virgo. Just make sure what you’re putting out there reflects the best that you have to offer. Not sure where to begin? This could be the nudge you need to sign up for a coaching session or join a virtual mastermind group. You’ll be tapped into online networks on Sunday, when the moon moves on to Cancer and your communal eleventh house. If you’ve been admiring someone’s feed, slide into their DMs. What starts as casual messaging could evolve into an inspiring conversation about ways you can collaborate. See the full week >
Loosen your grip on that truth hammer! It’s great that you like to call it as you see it, Libra. (Your keen sense of justice wouldn’t have it any other way.) But on Saturday, the moon syncs up with your ruler, Venus—which is retrograde in your outspoken ninth house—and your diplomacy could go AWOL. Save your fiercer texts to Drafts instead of firing them off reflexively. There may be a softer way to express the same sentiment…or not. Either way, give yourself a few hours to let those reactions marinate before you let ‘em rip. On Sunday, the moon puts you in a goal-getting frame of mind. How can you manifest something that benefits you AND provides for the folks you adore? Instead of trying to figure it out alone, bring your people in on the process. Great minds might not think alike today, but a healthy debate could spark a new vision for how you can all work together…and thrive! See the full week >
Emotions run to the intense end of the spectrum this Saturday as the moon gets in lockstep with retrograde Venus. Just when everything was going fine, you could be struck by a thunderbolt of jealousy, insecurity or rage. Argh! While you don’t want to let impulses overwhelm you, follow up on any gut feelings that suggest there’s reason to feel distrustful. All this could be stemming from something that you swept under the rug a while ago—or a totally unrelated event that happened in your childhood. Rule of thumb: Get the facts before you react! The storm clouds part on Sunday, when the moon heads into Cancer and your optimistic ninth house. Ask yourself this: What can this challenging situation teach me? The answer could come while you’re out for a walk or doing meditative activities like listening to music, baking or making something by hand. See the full week >
Relationships come under the microscope on Saturday as the Gemini moon makes contact with Venus retrograde. Resolving a conflict will require honesty but also a clear-eyed view of the whole situation…including (glug) YOUR part in it, Archer. If you’ve been putting up with someone else’s bad behavior, peel away a few layers of the onion before you decide whether this is a deal breaker or just a bump in the road. Don’t be too quick to bolt because a deeper conversation could help you sort it out. When the moon heads into Cancer on Sunday, you’ll “vant to be alone,” and anyone who demands your attention could feel like an energy vampire. In the heat of the moment, you could say something harsh—and oh, how that will sting! A better idea? Let people know you need some space, or take yourself on a long, solo walk. See the full week >
Review your routines this Saturday as the moon meets up with Venus retrograde in your wellness zone. What are your top health and fitness goals at the moment, Capricorn? And moreover, have you been doing little things to sabotage them? Maybe some adjustments ARE in order. With pleasure-seeking Venus in the frame, you might want to swap out some of those punishing boot camp classes for an upbeat dance workout. While it’s great to eat clean, be sure to feed yourself a steady diet of praise instead of negative self-talk along with the quinoa and kale. Sunday’s moon in Cancer activates your relationship zone, and you may suddenly realize how much you’ve been missing someone. Set aside time for a long conversation, even if that means shuffling a few items on your to-do list to Monday. On that note, where could you enlist a partner to help you get through some duties at a faster and less-stressful pace? See the full week >
On Saturday, visually oriented Venus, who’s been retrograde since May 13, meets up with the moon in your fifth house of passion, fashion and fame. This is like getting a callback on an audition you thought you blew. It’s a chance to reconsider options involving romance or creativity and get things right this time. What NOT to do: anything you can’t get out of since Venus in reverse can distort your thinking and desires. Do your research, but don’t do anything impulsive this weekend. Skip the pancake breakfast on Sunday and opt for an acai bowl instead. With the moon in Cancer activating your wellness corner, you’ll feel a burst of body-loving motivation. Set up a new corner of your home specifically for workouts or take time to create a new playlist that will keep your energy levels pumping. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Family friction could throw you for a loop this Saturday, but there’s also good news. With the Gemini moon catching up to Venus retrograde, you can smooth over the conflict without sweeping it under the rug. Make space for all voices to be heard—and set some ground rules, like no interrupting each other or giving feedback. Once everyone’s had their say, you can get creative. You don’t all have to agree, but you can find a way to play fair and respect one another’s space. This might mean declaring a few topics of conversation off-limits for a while. On Sunday, the moon heads into Cancer, calling forth your creative, romantic nature for two and a half days. Beauty will be healing, whether you’re spending time in nature, watching a gorgeous film or making something by hand. Also sanctioned by la luna? Swiping right on someone who catches your eye.
