Sat: Pay attention to what they don’t say as much as to verbal cues, as chatty Mercury trines surreptitious Pluto.

Keep those WhatsApp notifications switched on because on Saturday, an opportunity could come from afar. This could be the very thing you’ve been waiting for, Aries. Not that you should sit idly by, hoping to hear a ring. Take the initiative to DM a potential collaborator. Luck is on your side, especially if you cast a wide net. They say that teamwork makes the dream work, but is a joint effort starting to feel like a nightmare? On Sunday, stern Saturn turns retrograde until September 29, first backing up through Aquarius and your community and collaboration zone from until July 1, then retreating back into Capricorn. Group projects could hit a speed bump over the coming weeks. Instead of getting lost into the emotional weeds, approach conflicts from a pragmatic POV. Saturn is the planet of structure, and this reversal calls for strong leadership. Make sure everyone on the team has a clear set of responsibilities. Don’t be afraid to let go of outdated methodologies and test-drive a new workflow. Start by summarizing your shared goals, then set up those online brainstorming sessions. See the full week >
The green-eyed monster could make an appearance on Saturday, but don’t let that override your good senses. Although you may feel competitive (even jealous), reacting in a vengeful way will only bring you down. Find a neutral third party who can help you process what basically amounts to a temporary confidence dip. Underneath the storminess, you’re tapping into something that you want. Once you identify the desire, start vocalizing it so people can help bring your vision to life. On Sunday, driven Saturn slips into its annual retrograde until September 29. The first part of the backspin takes place in your career zone, helping you pull back and figure out your professional priorities between now and July 1. Even though this slowdown can be maddening, synergizing with Saturn can help you discover a formula for success that’s in line with your values. While progress might not come as quickly as you’d like over the next five months, trust that the universe has your back. A former collaborator may resurface and give a fresh boost to an old project. And make this your motto: no cutting corners! See the full week >
Relationships are like mirrors, Gemini, reflecting back all the parts of yourself that you’re proud of…and the ones you’d rather not deal with. When a loved one pushes your buttons on Saturday, don’t start pointing the finger of blame. Instead, look within and see what vibes you’ve been bringing to the relationship. If you want to change this person, start by amending your own approach or coming at the sticky subject from a completely different angle. Best thing you can do? Talk less, listen more. Grand plans may stall at the gate starting on Sunday as Saturn pivots into its annual retrograde until September 29. The first leg of this retreat takes place in Aquarius and your expansive, entrepreneurial ninth house until July 1. This slowdown can be frustrating, but taking a deeper dive into the details will strengthen the end result. Studying or training may be needed to bring your skills up to speed. Take advantage of all the online courses and certifications being offered at a discount this year. If you’re self-employed, use this cosmic backpedal as an opportunity to develop your venture behind the scenes. Publishing and media-making may be part of the master plan! See the full week >
Get to the point, Crab! You’ll lose your audience by telling too long of a story or going deep into the emotional realm. You can fill in the details later, but people only have so many hours in the day. If you’re preparing a presentation for next week, map out an outline instead of freestyling. Work on an elevator pitch if you have something to sell. If you only had 30 seconds in the lift with someone, how could you dazzle them? As much as we’re all missing social contact, you may find a new appreciation for your “me time” as stoic Saturn turns retrograde from Sunday until September 29—backing up through Aquarius and your eighth house of intimacy, sexuality and secrets until July 1. This yearly review calls for deep self-reflection. Don’t worry, Cancer: Turning inward won’t put a damper on a growing love connection; in fact, this valuable space will allow you to get your emotions in line. Bring any repressed feelings into the light, especially the ones impacting your romantic life. When you’ve got your inner world handled, you’ll bring your best self to relationships. Just remember: Lust doesn’t always translate to love. Saturn’s backspin might leave you fixating on a bad romance or even tempted to stray. Don’t open Pandora’s box! See the full week >
Saturday’s stars find you in a romantic headspace, but you’ll need to be smart about the choices you make. It’s not always wise to let it all hang out—especially when trust hasn’t been fully established. This is as true for friendship as it is for dating, Leo. Aim for “authentic” and “vulnerable” without oversharing. Even an open book can reveal itself one chapter at a time. Relationships get an audit starting Sunday, as restrictive Saturn flips retrograde until September 29. The ringed taskmaster backs up through your house of partnerships until July 1, then rounds out the reversal in your work and wellness zone. In all important relationships, open up more honest lines of communication and find a way to balance responsibilities. Saturn’s backspin can mute your sense of humor, so try not to take things so seriously! A former partner might return to the picture, or you could sign a contract with a collaborator from your past. While some agreements may seem a little TOO thorough, sorting the particulars now will keep everyone happy in the long run. See the full week >
Take time to add the personal touch on Saturday, Virgo. This is what sets you apart from the competition. People truly enjoy communicating with you, and with your keen understanding of human nature, you quickly put people at ease. Nurture the friendly bonds with people you want to connect with. Initiate a FaceTime or play a video game online together. These laid-back vibes will make it easier to talk shop at another time. Spring training begins on Sunday, when taskmaster Saturn turns retrograde until September 29, starting its retreat in Aquarius and your house of health and fitness until July 1. Mix up your workouts with apps and outdoor treks in areas where allowed. Assess your diet and think about trimming back the vices so you can deal with the feels in a healthier way. Saturn’s backward journey may force you to create savvier systems at work. Over the next five months, put more effort into appeasing a client or boss. Simultaneously, hold any support staff accountable so you don’t get shafted with their duties. Stay strong, Virgo, and channel your frustrations into those workouts! See the full week >
Ditch the black-and-white thinking (and thinkers!) this Saturday in favor of a more nuanced outlook. With the moon opposing your ruler, charming and diplomatic Venus, you’re interested in comparing multiple perspectives instead of getting hung up on finding “the right answer.” How about organizing a virtual salon, Libra? Pick the topic, invite your five most philosophical friends, and discuss! Starting Sunday, serious Saturn takes its yearly trip in reverse until September 29. The retrograde begins in Aquarius, bringing some friction to your fifth house of fame and romance until July 1. Enjoy the applause from all your fans, but don’t get hung up competing for likes. This isn’t the time to let approval ratings distract you from your true goals. With restrained Saturn reversing in your self-expression zone, think before you blurt out all your feelings. Saturn’s retrograde might also show you where you need a more solid framework in your romantic life. Even the happiest relationships require hard work. Communicate honestly and find common ground instead of firing off ultimatums. Establishing an open dialogue will help you create lasting love. See the full week >
Every penny counts this Saturday, so be mindful of where your money is going. Got some extra coin saved up? Allocate funds for something that’s built to last rather than a trendy, flash-in-the-pan, retail therapy splurge. It would be better to invest twice as much in something long-lasting, especially if it brings you daily doses of happiness. Shop around! Starting Sunday, get home and get family plans even MORE situated, Scorpio, as drill sergeant Saturn pivots retrograde until September 29. The retreat begins in your domestic zone (until July 1). To avoid residence-related conflicts and roommate meltdowns, you may need to divide up responsibilities anew. A relative could require extra support, which in turn could eat up some free time this summer. But set personal boundaries! You can’t be strong for others if you aren’t taking care of yourself. Dreaming of a new home? Saturn’s backspin could slow your real-estate search. Here’s the upside: Any delays will give you more time to find the perfect place for the best price. See the full week >
With the moon in Sagittarius, Saturday is a fine time for self-expression. Be careful though because thanks to la luna opposing diplomatic Venus, unpolished sentiment could stir up conflict or come across as confrontational. While it’s great to share your thoughts and ideas, be sure to create a safe space for others to do the same—especially on social media. This is about starting a conversation, not a Twitter war, right? On Sunday, restrictive Saturn pivots into its five-month retrograde, beginning its backward retrograde journey through your communication sector (until July 1). Since your words could feel weightier, take time to mull them over before making any public statements. Pokey Saturn could delay writing or media projects, but what’s the rush? Slow down and embrace the creative process. This retrograde might hinder the progress of a collaboration or cause a rift with a friend. Communication is the key to working through it, but that begins by YOU taking ownership of how well you listen (or don’t!). See the full week >
Saturday finds you in a refreshingly emo groove, which is not the norm for a cool-headed Capricorn. Rather than taking the logical route, opt for creative solutions. Step away from the spreadsheets, schedules, budgets and timetables, and let yourself dream. What would you do if money were no object and you had all the time in the world? Once you’ve brainstormed from this place, you can mix the practical magic back in again. Overextending your credit is never wise, Capricorn—and even more of a “don’t” as restrictive Saturn turns retrograde in your work and money house on Sunday. This belt-tightening backspin could slash your budget until July 1, but here’s the upside: Though Saturn won’t correct course until September 29, this cycle will inspire you to be more resourceful with what you have—and more thoughtful about what you spend. Plus, necessity really is the mother of invention. Take stock of your possessions: Is there anything in that storage unit that you could sell? Research innovative ways to make bank and be prepared to put in the necessary elbow grease. See the full week >
Embrace the spirit of cooperation on Saturday, Aquarius. People can’t actually “make” you feel insecure—but they CAN trigger buried feelings of unworthiness. Don’t shoot the messenger! These uncomfortable moments can illuminate limiting beliefs that you’re ready to move past. Instead of pushing away people who make you feel jealous, draw them closer and find out their secrets for being so confident. Hint: It’s probably got NOTHING to do with how they look or dress, but more to do with how kind they are to themselves. Even the strongest plans need a periodic review, Aquarius. On Sunday, when structured Saturn turns retrograde until September 29—and in your sign until July 1—brainstorm ways to streamline and balance your life. Are you able to handle your current workload and still take care of yourself? Embrace Saturn’s practical magic to successfully achieve your goals. Get your priorities in line and map out a smarter schedule. Cut out unnecessary appointments and use that time for activities that feed your soul. Since Saturn rules experts, book sessions with coaches, trainers and consultants who can help you map out a personal pathway to success. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Keep your composure on Saturday, Pisces. Someone may try to lure you into an emotional conflict, pushing your buttons just to get a rise out of you. Resist engaging in no-win interactions like these. By giving the energy vampires your attention, you’ll instantly lose power, points and credibility. And then there’s the fact that it’s just plain draining! On Sunday, sober Saturn flips into its five-month retrograde, beginning the retreat through your reflective twelfth house. You’ll need more space to be alone with your thoughts between now and July 1. Time spent in nature will be restorative, so scout out great hiking trails and set up your mat six (or more) feet away from people so you can practice yoga in the park. Are you halting your own progress by fixating on the past? With Saturn backing up through your sector of closure and forgiveness, work harder to let go of toxic vibes—and grudges. Examine your personal history and identify any bad habits you need to break. A healer or therapist (or both) can help you release negative energy, and with master teacher Saturn in reverse, support from the pros will expedite the process. See the full week >
