Could the Aries nest stand some feathering? Take all the time you need to make your habitat more comfy-cozy, both at Casa Ram and at work. That’s the order of business under today’s balancing (and domesticating) quarter moon in Cancer, which rules your fourth house of hearth and home. We’re not talking full-scale renovation project. Personalize your space with simple, subtle upgrades like new shelving to display your books and treasures, or leafy plants to add some green to your windows. See the full week >
Today’s quarter moon in Cancer lands in your third house of self-expression, encouraging you to hit pause and consider the effect your words are having—or NOT having. Your grounded sign tends to emphasize the practical aspects of a situation when sometimes a better approach is relating to your audience emotionally. Check yourself during the course of the day: Are you talking AT people rather than having meaningful dialogue? Make it your mission to “only connect” instead of wasting your breath on superficial chitchat. See the full week >
Clench your wallet tighter today: A prudent quarter moon in Cancer lights up your second house, calling for fiscal restraint. You don’t have to sell off family heirlooms or Airbnb your spare bedroom, but it is in your best interests to scale back a bit. A little research can lead you to affordable activities, like “pay what you can” day at the museum or author appearances at local bookstores. This could also inspire you to do more things outdoors, in nature—the greatest “freebie” of ‘em all! See the full week >
Ouch! Have you been giving till it hurts, again, Cancer? Today’s balancing quarter moon in your sign pulls the plug on that energy-sapping behavior. When you overdo it on the nurturing, you wind up feeling resentful, and, ironically, it can make people appreciate you LESS. Today, set a goal to empower people without enabling them to become dependent on you. How? By pointing them toward solutions but letting them do the heavy lifting. We know it’s hard to watch loved ones struggle, but this will be good for BOTH of you! See the full week >
When’s the last time you tackled the clutter in your life, Leo? Today’s balancing quarter moon in Cancer and your transitional twelfth house can inspire some “rightsizing.” Not only will this clear out your physical environment but your mental realm as well—and feeling more “spacious” can lead to enhanced creative thinking. But don’t toss things madly and mindlessly. One Leo’s junk can be another sign’s treasure, so think of friends, family and donation centers that might appreciate your gently used stuff.

There’s strength in numbers, but one downside of having “too many” friends or acquaintances is that you never seem to have enough time for everyone! As an industrious Virgo, you’d never neglect your 9-to-5 duties. But as a result, some members of your inner circle may be feeling neglected—even accusing you of deliberately ignoring them! You can rectify that under today’s quarter moon in Cancer and your community sector. Send a message suggesting a spontaneous group hang tonight, but curate carefully. BFFs only! See the full week >
Goals? Yeah, you’ve got a few. But today’s balancing quarter moon in Cancer and your career corner urges you to give ‘em a birthday-season review. It’s easy for your optimistic sign to hit the gas and forget to check the speed limit. That doesn’t seem like a bad thing until you realize you’re under intense pressure with a deadline or have overscheduled your entire workweek. This self-nurturing moon gives you a chance to recalibrate and make necessary course corrections before it’s too late. See the full week >
Shift out of focus mode, Scorpio, and do a clear-eyed scan of your environment. While you’re shedding the protective gear, maybe cast off some of that emotional armor too? If you’ve been playing it a little too safe with your dreams or a relationship, today’s quarter moon in Cancer and your adventurous ninth house will coax you out of your comfort zone. (And if you don’t come out willingly, it might just yank you!) But this isn’t an invitation to bet the farm on a risky proposition—just to take a long-overdue sip from the fountain of life.

You may be feeling uncharacteristically obsessive or competitive thanks to today’s quarter moon in your eighth house of intense emotions. Don’t lose sight of the big picture, though, Archer. Your fierce determination is great for getting the job done, but if you come on TOO strong, you risk alienating supporters. This balancing lunation can help you find a middle ground. While you want to do your best, it’s okay to slow down a little and deliver those results at a saner pace. Remind yourself that even when you don’t race to the finish line, the cream will always rise to the top. See the full week >
Who said relationships were easy, Capricorn? Anything worth having is worth working hard for, as your ambitious sign knows better than most. Today’s quarter moon in your partnership zone may inspire you to view a key union through a new lens. Has a loved one’s behavior started to become a problem? It might seem easier to sweep it under the rug, but eventually that pile will trip you up. Confront the issue today—being careful not to come off as judgmental. See the full week >
Today’s quarter moon in Cancer and your sixth house of healthy living inspires some fall wellness goals. To stay motivated (or just to get the stability ball rolling), try some new things to keep you from shifting into mindless and ineffective autopilot mode. Check out different studios or classes; pick up unfamiliar foods and then Google recipes you can make with them. Tap a friend to be your workout/clean-eating buddy. That’ll hold you accountable AND make the process way more fun. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Today’s quarter moon in sensitive Cancer and your romantic fifth house can help you strike the right balance between sincerely expressing your feelings and not overwhelming someone with your intensity. The goal is to reach a state of equilibrium in which you and the object of your affection both feel loved and respected. Love shouldn’t be a guessing game (which is entirely different from a little game-playing behind closed doors between consenting adults). Single Pisces, dip a toe in the dating pool. You might be pleasantly surprised by what you stir up! See the full week >
