Swap perfectionism for self-acceptance today. Holding yourself to impossible standards will only breed frustration, especially under today’s moon-Venus brawl. Let yourself relax a little and accept life’s foibles. Rather than try and iron out all your so-called personality “flaws,” embrace them! Those little quirks and idiosyncrasies are what make you beautiful and unique. Focus on people who love you just the way you are, Aries. See the full week >
Watch your wallet, Taurus! There’s nothing wrong with a little splurging every now and then, but an ill-timed shopping spree could do serious damage to your bank account today as the Gemini moon forms an impulsive square with Venus in your indulgent fifth house. Take a careful look at your budget before making any major purchases. Will this pricey extravagance be something you can truly maximize? If the answer is yes, then carpe diem! If not, could you scratch this spending itch with a less expensive alternative? See the full week >
Bending over backward to accommodate everyone else? Resist any self-sacrificing impulses today as the Gemini moon in your self-affirming first house squares emotional Venus in your career zone. Prioritize YOUR needs and projects today, even if it means saying no to a coworker’s pleas for help. There’s no need to be harsh, but stand your ground in the face of pressure. You’ve got some great ideas, and they’re worthy of serious consideration. It’s possible that you may have to make a few compromises along the way, but aim to reach a consensus by EOD.

Think twice before signing on any dotted lines today, Cancer. As the moon forms a tricky square with smooth-talking Venus, cracks could appear in a promising partnership. Does an offer seem a little too good to be true? Take nothing for granted under these duplicitous skies. Review “facts” and research references. Questions may arise as a result, ones you need answered in order to proceed with confidence. If you’re able to iron things out, go ahead and pursue this opportunity. But if you can’t see eye-to-eye, it may be time to start investigating other options. See the full week >
Cash-conscious Venus squares the moon today, bringing shared finances under the microscope. Are you splitting a major expense? Make sure everyone is prepared to cover their portion, whether you’re all going in on a vacation rental or investing in an exploratory business venture with a friend. Are you shouldering an oversized portion of the price tag? Speak up before resentment builds. The same thing goes for any group projects. Ensure that everyone is sharing the workload (and the budget!) equally. See the full week >
A promising plan is formulating, Virgo, and you’re ready to hit the accelerator. But good luck convincing people to get on board with your vision under today’s obfuscating moon-Venus square. No matter how glossy your presentation may be, certain gatekeepers may demand even MORE information or time to think it through. Getting an endorsement from an industry influencer could help nudge this along, so do your outreach. If you’re winging it in any way, stop! Delay the meeting until you’ve had time to fully flesh out your pitch. Evaluate your own project with a critical eye. Address any oversights and make this airtight. See the full week >
Take off those rose-colored aviators, Libra! Tempting as it may be to sweep inconvenient truths under the rug, denial could blow up on you under today’s muddling moon-Venus square. Failing to troubleshoot won’t just complicate matters in the moment; it could lead to even bigger (and more expensive) problems down the line. Take a breath and then take an honest look at what’s actually happening here. Do you need to bring in expert support—or, Libra, would a better solution be to dial back expectations and start with a simpler Phase 1.0? See the full week >
If something’s bothering you, don’t suppress it because you think you have to play “fearless leader.” It’s okay to be vulnerable with your team, especially if this issue could potentially affect a group project. Air your concerns in a supportive brainstorming session, then start troubleshooting with your trusted collaborators. Unexpected solutions could arise from the hivemind. Also, by sharing the burden of this problem, you’ll reduce your own stress level. But don’t get carried away and start venting about your problems to anyone who will listen. Keep these discussions “inner circle only”! See the full week >
Keep it professional, Archer! Draw a firm line between business and pleasure today, even as a boundary-loosening square between the moon and Venus lures you in a reckless direction. Sharing your latest love updates at the staff meeting might be fine by your work besties, but your blushworthy confessions could make a less-familiar colleague uncomfortable. While you’re a master of icebreaker chitchat, steer clear of topics that could be deemed “too personal,” along with the powder kegs of politics and religion. Thinking of recommending a friend for a job? Make sure you can authentically vouch for their work. Their performance will ultimately reflect on YOU. See the full week >
Can’t see the forest for the trees, Capricorn? It’s almost impossible to NOT get lost in the details today as the fussy Gemini moon squares Venus in ultra-particular Virgo. Keep reminding yourself to focus on the big-picture goal—even if you have to create an hourly pop-up on your calendar with the mission statement and day’s objectives. Creating a solid foundation should be your number one priority for this project. Finish the essential tasks and then indulge in all the flourishes and embellishments. See the full week >
Try as you may to be “calm and objective,” the green-eyed monster could hack your brain today as the moon forms a stressful square with Venus in your possessive eighth house. While you may be justifiably agitated, you might do more damage by trying to talk things out from such a stormy state. Part of you WANTS to pick a fight, but what good ever comes of that, Aquarius? Venting to a level-headed and compassionate friend first can spare you a total relationship meltdown. If the damage has already been done, give things space for a couple days before attempting to make amends. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
All aboard the emotional roller coaster! Today’s tumultuous moon-Venus dustup could shake up your world, especially with one of the VIPs in your circle. It may be tough to think clearly under these unstable skies, so avoid making any major decisions while you’re in this moody state. And don’t take your frustration out on innocent bystanders. It’s not their fault that you’re in this jam, so why are you picking a pointless fight? Schedule some self-care to help quell this storm of feelings. See the full week >
