Ready to toss your to-do list out the window today? Not so fast. An industrious meetup of the Sun and on-the-move Mercury powers you through those outstanding tasks. And you’ll feel tremendous relief as you tick off each box! Plus, who says you can’t enjoy this practical magic in a collaborative way? Surely there’s a friend who wants to jump on a brainstorming call or fill up that Pinterest board you started with all kinds of visually arresting inspo. See the full week >
When you see something, say something, Taurus. It’s not like you can help yourself today as mouthy Mercury and the illuminating Sun sync up in your sign and activate your quick-fire first house. Your instincts will be sharp; your tact and timing, well…not so much. But ultimately, it’s better to speak your piece than to hold it in and later drive your entire Facebook feed insane obsessing over what-ifs. Don’t let questions linger unanswered, Taurus. Do your best to phrase them diplomatically instead of being too blunt. See the full week >
Lighten up that agenda, Gemini, and build some unstructured flow time into your day. With the Sun and mindful Mercury in your soulful twelfth house, you could have some real epiphanies while journaling or quietly reading and researching during work breaks. Looking for some evening entertainment? Stick to the musical or the metaphysical. Could you do a webcam jam with friends who play instruments or sing? A pop-in yoga instructor might be teaching an amazing class on IGTV or Zoom—maybe one that ends with a gong meditation or a singing-bowl sound bath. See the full week >
So much for that “just the two of us” video chat. With the boundlessly creative Sun and social Mercury synced up in your more-is-merrier eleventh house, your private call could evolve into a hivemind brainstorming session. (Pick your platform, Cancer!) The more feedback the better today, and don’t worry that it will send you spinning out in too many directions. Once you take it all in, you can synthesize the new data and figure out what’s best for you. Today, however, it’s best to let your mind and imagination stretch. See the full week >
A case of the Mondays? Not for you, Leo. With the Sun and detail-driven Mercury trading friendly fire in your career zone all today, you might have trouble breaking away from work to prepare your lunch. But make sure to take some stretch breaks and give yourself a firm cutoff time tonight. (As in, try to log off before moonrise.) It’s easy to obsess over the details as you polish, design and get into production mode. But if you find yourself veering into perfectionism, ask for feedback from someone whose opinion you trust implicitly. Good enough IS good enough! See the full week >
Good luck staring at spreadsheets and data today, Virgo. With the Sun and your galactic guardian, intrepid Mercury, in your nomadic ninth house, wanderlust will hit you hard. Make discovery the goal today, even if that means putting on a mask and going for a bike ride to take in some new sights from a six-foot (or greater) distance. Today you’re the seeker of the zodiac, and this transit piques your intellectual curiosity. This could be your cue to dive into that novel everyone’s buzzing about. If you’re craving social stimulation, sign up for a virtual book club where you can read and discuss the chapters together. See the full week >
Breakfast in bed might not be possible on a Monday, even in “these times.” But how about meeting your favorite plus-one on a video chat for an extended lunch break or an after-work “date”? With the Sun and flirty Mercury entwined in your seductive eighth house, you’ll have a hard time keeping your mind on mundane matters. If you don’t have a special someone to send naughty texts to throughout the day, you could be intimately engaged with the muse. Rejig your schedule so you can work on a passion project rather than that dull spreadsheet or report. See the full week >
It’s a sweet-talking day for Scorpios as the Sun and glib Mercury unite in your partnership house and bless you with even greater powers of persuasion. Few can say no to you when you turn on that playful, confident charm. But remember: If you rope people into things, you’re at least a little bit responsible for, well, showing them the ropes. Of course, that can be part of the fun—and a worthwhile bonding experience with someone you’d like to connect to more this spring. See the full week >
A vitality-boosting Monday is in the stars as the life-giving Sun syncs up with social Mercury in your wellness corner. Instead of napping or sitting in front of your computer all day, “meet” friends for a workout. (Translation: Everyone logs in to the same streaming cardio dance class together.) If it’s nice outside and approved in your area, pump up your bike tires and take a ride—or go for a longer-than-usual walk, avec mask, and call a dear friend to catch up while you’re strolling. Don’t just make this a one-time thing, Sagittarius. Mercury loves a schedule, so designate a block of time for daily movement. See the full week >
Slip on that beachy caftan or your favorite fedora. Sure, you might not be going any farther than your own living room, but who cares? As the Sun and messenger Mercury merge in your theatrical and romantic fifth house, their directive is clear: When you look good, you feel good (or a heckuva lot better). Before you’ve started your daily tasks, you may have staged an extensive selfie shoot—and even fielded an accusation of thirst-trapping! Feeling the urge to broadcast live or shoot a video? Today is perfect for doing test shoots and getting more comfortable on camera while you find the best window to provide natural lighting on “set” (AKA your home sweet home). See the full week >
The endless stretch of work-from-couch days can be hard for your social sign. Thankfully, today’s mashup of the Sun and clever Mercury brings inspired ideas for staying productive while stuck in place. If you’re a freelancer, invite other independently employed friends to log into a video chat for a virtual coworking day. Set quiet hours and have a group lunch break and a couple of brainstorming breakout chats. This is also a great day to catch up with family—or make amends with a relative who may have pushed your buttons in a recent conversation. Extend the olive branch, Aquarius, especially if you know their intentions were pure. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
So many friends, so little time! Your popularity spikes today as the radiant Sun links arms with social Mercury in Taurus and your third house of community. You might have to set your status to “Away” in order to get any work done. An invitation to join a new virtual community (or three) could bring a radical upgrade to your spring social calendar. Meeting new people is one of the best and fastest ways to expand your world—even if you have to connect through screens. Already feeling a synergy? This budding connection could evolve into a dynamic duo by sunset if you boldly initiate talks. See the full week >
