Today’s moon in Leo puts you in a romantic headspace, but thanks to a challenging beam from Venus in Scorpio, the green-eyed monster could make an unwelcome cameo. You could easily blow a dispute out of proportion or overreact to a perceived slight about…what exactly, Aries? Restrain yourself from lashing out or storming out of the room when you feel your temper heating up. The aftermath of such meltdowns won’t be fun to clean up. Want to break the ice? Pay attention to the little things. One astute and sincere compliment could get you everywhere. See the full week >
Your moods may fluctuate wildly today, Taurus, so don’t rush to make any important decisions—and don’t let anyone pressure you into saying yes (or no) before you are fully informed of your options. Although this day can bring some ups and downs, be mindful of the impact your wavering feelings can have on the ones you love. You don’t want to drag anyone along on an emotional roller-coaster ride or, worse, snap at them when they’re only trying to lend some support. See the full week >
There’s nothing wrong with aiming for the best, Gemini, but have you set the bar so high that no one—yourself included—can reach it? Under today’s moon-Venus dust-up, you’d be wise to dial down the idealism. Instead, try to find beauty in the so-called flaws and humor in the moments of surprise. Stay on track today and meditate on the wise words of author and spiritual healer Anne Wilson Schaef, who said, “Perfectionism is self-abuse of the highest order.” Rewind and be kind…to yourself first; then it will be easier to exude genuine warmth to others.

A little retail therapy can lift your spirits, Cancer, but under today’s unrestrained square between the Leo moon in your money zone and Venus in your hedonistic fifth house, impulse purchases can land you in the red. Before pulling out the plastic, get a firm grip on what your budget REALLY allows. If you’ve got your sights on a high-end item, set up a savings plan to make it happen. In the meantime, tide yourself over with an object in the “affordably chic” category. A little treat will still do the trick of satisfying your desire for something shiny and new. See the full week >
Tame your people-pleasing instincts today. As the Leo moon in your self-authorized first house clashes with harmonizer Venus, you could be too quick to concede simply because you want to keep the peace. But preserve some fight in you, Leo. On days like this, nice guys will finish last. No, you don’t have to unleash a ferocious roar—but don’t let anyone mistake you for a timid little kitten. While expressing a divergent point of view might stir up friction, don’t be afraid to vocalize your authentic perspective. A creative solution that works for everyone could emerge by the day’s end.

Beware the smooth-talking salesman, Virgo, and remain somewhat wary when you feel a tug on your heartstrings. With the moon in a tangled angle with charming Venus, you could unwittingly fall for a hustler’s hype. Maybe people are the genuine article—or maybe you’re being duped. Today, it’s just too hard to tell. Assume nothing until you have facts and figures in front of you. And if you’re going to plunk down any hard-earned cash, get all your questions answered and give yourself a chance to sleep on the offer. If it’s meant to be yours, it will be available tomorrow morning. See the full week >
Today’s Leo moon revs up your esprit de corps, making you eager to continue a collaboration. But before you get in deeper, make sure everything you pool is being shared and distributed equally. With money-minded Venus squaring la luna, cash could be a source of friction among your friend group or team. You’re as generous as they come, Libra, but when something feels unfair, your internal alarm starts clanging. To avoid a total squad meltdown, demand transparency around group spending, and make sure the workload is equally divided among your collaborators. While everyone may bring different skills to the table, you should each be expending an equal amount of energy. See the full week >
You have a vision, Scorpio, and a brilliant one at that. But under today’s befuddling moon-Venus square, you could struggle to convince others of the merits of your plan. People may demand practical proof before signing on or need more time to mull things over. If possible, postpone any pitch meetings until you’re ready—or arm yourself with all the necessary facts and figures to fortify your stroke of genius. Try to anticipate what people’s objections may be, and then find ways to address each one. Will it be profitable, enjoyable…a smart use of time? If you’re ready with answers, their concerns and critiques won’t be roadblocks but rather an opening for dialogue. See the full week >
Seek and ye shall find, Sagittarius—as long as you’re not searching through rose-colored lenses. Under today’s moon-Venus square, you could fall into the trap of idealizing, preferring to ignore the unpleasant details instead of dealing with them. But this is a recipe for future disappointment. Remind yourself that no one or thing will ever be “perfect.” Instead, try aiming for “beautifully human.” Personality quirks can be endearing, and factory defects can turn the ordinary into art! Try this on for size, Archer: What if true love was actually defined as accepting people for all that they are—and all that they are not? See the full week >
Forget about keeping up with the Kardashian-Jenners today, Capricorn. Instead, just keep it real. Your teammates don’t need to see a brave front right now; they want to know how you’re REALLY feeling. How else will they be able to not just support you, but also co-create effectively? If you’ve been keeping important intel close to your vest, call a squad summit and let everyone in on it. You’ll be amazed at the solutions that can emerge when you surrender to the power of the hivemind. That said, only confab with trusted insiders who have proven their loyalty. See the full week >
Mixing business with pleasure is rarely a good idea—and under today’s disruptive moon-Venus square, blurred lines could spell disaster. Resist the temptation to go out drinking with coworkers (especially the one who secretly drives you mad with desire). And if you need a partner on a professional project, write up a job description and circulate it among industry contacts instead of asking a friend who doesn’t have the right skill set to step in. Keep your relationships sacred—at work and in your personal life—by keeping everyone in their appropriate lane. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You never met a flourish, fleur de lis or flambe you didn’t like, Pisces. But under a tangled angle between the moon and Venus, you could get lost in the bells and whistles today, losing sight of the goal post. Keep it simple and don’t let the details distract you from your end game. If anything, make sure you’ve handled all the practical tasks first…THEN you can feather, fluff and finesse to your heart’s desire. See the full week >
