Set your sights on a big weekend mission. The moon spends both days in your goal-driven tenth house, inspiring you to tackle a project you’ve been putting off. Work could come a’calling, or you might spend a couple hours polishing a presentation for a big Monday pitch or drafting an email to a client. In between, tackle that overflowing storage room or pack away the summer clothes that are still in your dresser. The tenth house rules men, so spend time connecting with your dad or another important guy in your life, especially during Saturday’s quarter moon. (If you’re lucky, he can even be recruited to help with your weekend undertakings.) On Sunday, your get-‘er-done dreams could be dashed by a difficult or uncooperative person. As much you want to move forward with an agenda or a relationship, you might need to stop and make sure both parties are on the same page. Sweeping a conflict or disagreement under the rug now will only cause it to snowball into something bigger. In fact, that might be why you find yourself in this position today. Pause and deal with this head-on, Aries. And if you discover you’re going in completely opposite directions, it might be best to part ways. See the full week >
Opinions: You’ve got plenty of them, Taurus, and this weekend, you’re not afraid to share. The moon spends all weekend in Capricorn and your outspoken ninth house. Conversations will be lively and, in some cases, searingly honest. During Saturday’s quarter moon, you could delve into a fascinating philosophical debate that opens your mind to new perspectives. You might also be inspired to clear the air with someone close. Peace at last! Sunday could find you occupying the critic’s corner or touching a nerve with your truth-telling. Under a moon-Venus square, you could dish out unsolicited feedback in hefty doses, potentially provoking a fight. Yes, you can see the flaws clearly, and you may have great ideas for how to fix them. (And sure, you’re only trying to help.) Find a way to air your perfectly valid suggestions in a way that empowers rather than offends. See the full week >
Go deep or go home! The moon plunges into your intimate eighth house, sparking a sultry and introspective mood that lasts all weekend. Your breezy nature might be MIA, and you could be distracted by a complex situation. Take a weekend off from being the witty life of the party, Gemini. You don’t always have to be “on.” Use Saturday’s quarter moon to digest the events of the past week, get a massage or spend some private time with a special someone. Thanks to a tense angle between the moon and Venus, you could wake up on the wrong side of the bed this Sunday. Some of your irritability could stem from emotions that you haven’t dealt with. Ah, you can run but you can’t hide, Twin. Instead of avoiding those uncomfortable feelings, sort them out over brunch with your tribunal of wise friends. If you’re feeling ignored, don’t stir up drama just for drama’s sake. There are better ways to get a reaction besides making someone jealous or pushing their buttons. See the full week >
Relationships take center stage as the moon spends all weekend in Capricorn and your interpersonal seventh house. If a particular partnership is out of sync, Saturday’s balancing quarter moon helps you restore harmony with some quality one-on-one time. Don’t try to tackle any more weekend projects alone. Enlist your favorite plus-one and do this together. When you’re done, you can treat for a special dinner. Heads-up: Single Cancers could meet someone with long-term relationship potential this weekend. Even if you’re dashing to the hardware store or grabbing a latte, stay open to the kindness of sexy strangers. On Sunday, you may need to push back on someone who isn’t treating you with respect. You may be nurturing, but you’re nobody’s doormat! A moon-Venus square can make you a bit of an emotional sponge. Careful not to let people tug TOO hard on your heartstrings. If they ask for your support, offer encouragement but DON’T rush to fix it for them! See the full week >
Happy, healthy weekend, Leo! The moon spends both days in Capricorn and your sixth house of wellbeing. While you may not bound out of bed for 7AM yoga, how about a noon class? After your asanas, head to the farmer’s market for a bounty of local produce that you can add to your meals for the coming week. If it’s a nice day, get out and commune with nature. Under Saturday’s introspective quarter moon, you may have a lot on your mind, so grab your wisest friend for a hike or a power walk. Physical activity will get you out of your head and make you much more receptive to a pal’s sound advice. On Sunday, are you blurring the line between fact and opinion? The moon in this normally sensible part of your chart clashes with Venus in your communication sector. Your relationship to the “truth” can be a little slippery, so check your facts before you sound off. This transit can make it hard to see people for who they are. Even if it feel like an instant lovefest, hold back a few details and remember that time will tell. See the full week >
A colorful weekend is in store, Virgo, as the moon spends both days in Capricorn and your fifth house of passion and self-expression. There’s no holding you back from wearing your heart on your sleeve. And under Saturday’s quarter moon, be sure to let people know how you feel about them instead of hoping they’ll read your mind. (That said, your body language will drop some pretty major hints!) If you’re in a relationship, Saturday is ideal for a glamorous night out. Single Virgos could twirl into the arms of a seriously hot prospect. While it might not be a forever thing, it will certainly be memorable. Under Sunday’s moon-Venus square, diplomacy could fly right out the window. While it might feel good to get something off your chest, your emotions are also running high. Your strong reaction could upset the stable balance of a relationship. Maybe you’re stressed about money or pressured on your job. Before you fly off the handle, go do something fun to blow off steam. It doesn’t have to cost much, or anything at all. Kayaking, karaoke a funny movie…whatever gets you to lighten up. Laughter IS the best medicine. See the full week >
Home is where your heart is this weekend as the moon spends both days in Capricorn, your domestic zone. Putter around the house with no high-pressure timeline or obligations. It’s the perfect chill weekend to catch up with family, toss some hearty ingredients into the slow cooker and host a Saturday dinner-and-movie potluck party. Under Saturday’s quarter moon, catch up with a special someone in your inner circle—the person who will dish out empathy instead of tough love. On Sunday, you’ll be a bit hesitant to rock the boat as your ruler, congenial Venus, clashes with the moon. You want to stand strong for your beliefs and needs, yet your convictions could waver—and you might not have the inner strength to fight. Take a day for self-care if you need, but don’t sell out. Pamper yourself and get back onto the battlefield next week! See the full week >
Stay open! As the moon lingers in your third house of communication all weekend, jump into any scintillating conversations you overhear—at a party, in the espresso line or on social media. You’ll have plenty of wit and wisdom to contribute, and this could be the start of a new connection. Under Saturday’s quarter moon, you might not be able to get a good friend off your mind. Send a text—or better yet, call. Your supportive advice will be everything! Or lure them out for some cultural activities. It’s a great weekend to browse bookstores, try on vintage clothes or check out a thought-provoking exhibit. Careful not to step onto a passive-aggressive minefield on Sunday. If you sense sarcasm or distance in a conversation, call it out! Open dialogue is the only way to resolve this, but the other party might not realize that you are amenable to hashing things out. Be more direct in your own communications. If you want to get a message across, don’t expect people to read your mind! (Unless, of course, they’re also Scorpios.) See the full week >
Practical plans for the weekend, Sag? The moon will spend both days in Capricorn and your second house of work, money and security. If you’re not bringing a project home from the office, you could be consumed by an obsessive Marie Kondo cleanup mission. Pay overdue bills, purge your closet, but make sure you reward yourself with some Saturday night luxury. A decadent dinner is just what the doctor ordered. A little cooperation would help—but under Sunday’s moon-Venus square, it could be hard to come by. Even if you begin with a simple plan, getting others to play along will prove challenging. There could be in-fighting among key members of the group. Pass the talking stick but know that someone might be arguing just for argument’s sake. Too much democracy could derail your goals. If you can’t reach consensus, don’t get stuck in a stalemate. Make an executive decision to keep things moving along. See the full week >
Who owns the weekend? You do! With the moon spending both days in Capricorn, you’re in rare feisty form. Although you’re often the event planner tasked with finding a venue to suit everyone’s tastes, don’t compromise your own desires in the process. Your free time is precious, o’ hardworking Sea Goat. Honor it by checking off something on your “must-do this fall” list. Even if that means flying solo, who cares? Under Saturday’s quarter moon in your sign, a little alone time will help you reconnect to the best parts of yourself. Ego alert! Someone could be throwing their weight around on Sunday. Don’t be intimidated by swagger. Behind the name-dropping lies a hotbed of insecurity. Simultaneously, check any tendencies to inflate your achievements. If you want to be among the real “who’s who,” let your accomplishments speak for themselves. And if you’re still establishing yourself, your authenticity could charm someone into taking you under their wing. See the full week >
Closure time? The moon spends the weekend in Capricorn and your twelfth house of endings and healing. If you’ve been holding in your feelings, Saturday’s quarter moon lures them out into the open. But before you firehose any “offending parties,” take time to process what’s happening inside. Under this foggy moon, you may be feeling a bit sorry for yourself, and you don’t want to approach conversations from a victim mindset. Bear in mind: Not everyone can handle your brutal honesty in heaping doses, so it might be best to do a few practice runs before you deliver your soliloquy. With Sunday’s clash between the moon and Venus, you’ll need to sweeten your truth serum with compassion. Try to put yourself in the other person’s shoes before you step on that soapbox or launch into a “what you NEED to do…” diatribe. If you find yourself on the receiving end of self-righteous preaching, politely but firmly excuse yourself. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
What are friends for? This weekend, everything! The moon spends both days in Capricorn and your eleventh house of group activity. Rally your crew for some “the more the merrier” good times and be open to picking up new people as you go. Tag along with friends and check out the activities they keep raving about. You could discover a new fall obsession! Warning: Sunday’s moon-Venus clash may rile up discord among the squad. Is jealousy or competitiveness seeping into your inner circle? Make sure you aren’t pushing people’s buttons then feigning innocence. You know exactly what you’re doing when you light that metaphorical match, Pisces. But unless you want to get someone’s temper blazing, don’t go there. See the full week >
