Whoosh! Today’s fast-moving current could crank up the intensity in a partnership. Hotheaded Mars teams up with the moon, making you quite assertive about your wants and needs. Spell it out, Aries, so people know what you’re looking for. Warning: You could come across as dictatorial or domineering if you take this energy too far. Conversations about joint efforts should be dialogues, not an opportunity for you to lay down the law. Be sure to ask for input and listen to the feedback you get with an open mind and heart.

You’re on a moneymaking mission, Taurus, thanks to a supportive angle between the moon and go-getter Mars. Do you see an entrepreneurial opportunity or a chance to sprint up the ladder that’s appearing on the horizon? Strike while the iron is hot—and today, it’s scorching. Come prepared with a plan, plus facts and figures. People will want numbers and evidence to back up your sales pitch. Does someone owe you cash? Enough excuses! Collect what’s due you, even if that requires setting up a repayment plan. See the full week >
All the world is your stage, Gemini, as the moon makes magic with show pony Mars. So why not light it up like a Broadway marquee? Bring on the vivid descriptions and colorful tales your sign loves. (And hey, throw in some song lyrics if you’re so moved.) While it’s definitely The Gemini Show today, you’ll earn even more fans if you spotlight someone else’s talents as well. Give your unsung pals public props on social media. It’s a lovefest up in here! See the full week >
You’re itching to resolve a personal dilemma, and who could blame you? As a sensitive water sign, compartmentalizing is hard. Even the slightest rift with a close friend can upset you all day. Let the “offending party” know how much you’d like to talk things out, and your desire for harmony might actually get through. If they don’t respond after a couple tries, however, don’t keep texting. Channel your frustration into a vigorous workout, and when you get home, don’t be surprised if you have the energy to do some power cleaning. Scrubbing the tub never felt so therapeutic!

Today’s fast-moving dance between the moon and Mars brings exhilarating developments for your social life. You could stumble upon a group with soul-squad potential or finally break into an elite circle you’ve admired for a while. Does this entourage feel intimidating? Instead of looking at it as a whole, see them as a collection of individuals. Maybe you feel a pull toward one or two people in the group. Foster friendships with them first. Once you have THEIR backing, bonding with the rest of the crew will be a cakewalk. See the full week >
Your money mojo will be off the charts today, thanks to a supportive angle between the moon and go-getter Mars. Follow your instincts. Does someone look intriguingly powerful? Introduce yourself and find out more. That brave initiative could pave the way to a profitable collaboration. If there’s a vacuum in leadership, step up and take charge. You don’t have to saddle yourself with extra work, though. Make sure that the team has been clearly tasked with their responsibilities (assign them if not) to ensure that the mission makes it to the finish line. See the full week >
Send your inner people-pleaser packing today, Libra. As the moon and assertive Mars strengthen your backbone, you have the opportunity to establish a much-needed boundary. You’ll need to summon your diplomatic nature for these conversations—even if you DO feel fired-up and combative. If you haven’t spoken up before this, how will people know they’ve crossed a line? Give them a chance to correct the infraction before you read them the riot act. But if you’ve already been through this (like, ten times already), explore more serious measures for dealing.

No one puts Scorpio in the corner! But if you put yourself there, well, that’s a different story. Today, those nooks and crannies may be your esoteric sign’s preferred placement as the moon and stressful Mars heighten your sensitivity. If there’s no way to avoid the crowds, huddle up in your oversized scarf and try to be as invisible as possible. You could make strides on a creative project by tuning out the world. Try to soak up some inspiration before shifting into productivity mode. Wander through a gallery, listen to music, drive through a neighborhood with gorgeous architecture. Oh, hello, muse!

It takes a village to keep a relationship running smoothly, Sagittarius. If you’ve hit a speed bump with someone you love, don’t keep trying to hash it out with another exhausting conversation. Instead, call a time-out and seek outside counsel. A friend who has “been there, done that” might offer unconventional solutions that you hadn’t thought of on your own. Single Archers: Hand your bow and quiver to a friend who could play Cupid for you. Sometimes it takes an outsider to recognize what (and who) is actually best for you! See the full week >
Who’s in charge around here anyway? Before you hit the ground running today, check in with your team. You may need to defuse a power struggle and clarify what part of the realm is actually under your command. Once you do, empower a few “second mates” who you trust to carry out your mission. You don’t need them checking in with you about every detail: Just get on the same page about your big-picture vision then head to your stations and get ‘er done. See the full week >
Bigger, stronger, faster! With today’s passionate connection between the moon and motivated Mars, it will take a challenge to motivate you—and that might mean creating one for yourself. Just don’t bite off more than you can chew. Since this energy will taper off tomorrow, a 24-hour project would be ideal. Feel like tackling something more ambitious? Before you dive into action, map out a clear project plan. And if you really want to do this the right way, solicit a few competitive bids and shop around for materials from different sources. Negotiating the best deals is part of the thrill! See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Today has “emotional intensity” written all over it, but you won’t mind in the least! Those deeper waters are where Pisces prefer to swim. You could finally break the ice with an acquaintance or heat things up with a crush. But don’t plunge right into the emo waters if you’re dealing with a cooler fish. If you lead with your tortured-poet foot, you could lose this one before the first stanza. Stick with humor or shared cultural references as your icebreaker. And if they can’t go deeper than that, it might be YOU who loses interest. See the full week >
