Note to Rams: A sale isn’t always the signifier of a great deal. Money could get funny today as bean-counting Mercury faces off with unpredictable Uranus in your financial houses. Be on the lookout for hidden costs before adding anything to your cart. If you don’t do your homework, you could get wooed into a shady deal. Read the fine print when it comes to a product’s return and exchange policy. Before agreeing to any business partnerships, make sure you’re crystal-clear on the expectations. Be prudent, and get terms spelled out in black and white. See the full week >
Breathe in, breathe out. Today’s opposition between expressive Mercury and impulsive Uranus makes you impatient with any behavior that feels impulsive or immature. Count backward from ten before you read anyone the riot act. People could be oblivious to the fact that they’re offending or annoying you. Once you stop taking their behavior personally, you’ll see a whole array of options for dealing with this creatively. Don’t hate, innovate! See the full week >
You prefer variety over routine, Gemini, but to keep your Nikes planted on terra firma, incorporate some sort of daily grounding ritual. This doesn’t need to be anything time-consuming or elaborate. Carry a crystal in your pocket or wear a symbolic piece of jewelry, like a bracelet from your grandmother or a charm with a meaningful symbol. Dial down anxiety by swapping your afternoon coffee for a matcha latte; download a meditation app and try a one-minute exercise at the top of each hour. And if you must vent, start by writing in your journal before going off on anyone. See the full week >
As much as you claim that you hate drama, Cancer, it’ll be insanely easy for you to get pulled into it under today’s erratic Mercury-Uranus opposition. During this destabilizing transit, you could default to playing mediator or trying to make everyone happy. If you want to wrangle a group back onto the same page, rise above the emotions and direct the attention to proactive steps that can move the mission along. Also helpful? Reminding Team Crab of the inspiring principles that brought you together in the first place. If your diplomatic efforts fall on tone-deaf ears, just fly solo and focus on YOU for the day.

Curveballs are flying in from every angle today thanks to a wrench-throwing opposition between Mercury and Uranus. At work, you could get tasked with responsibilities that aren’t technically yours, but someone’s gotta handle them! Patience for a coworker’s rebellious antics could wear thin—and you might easily snap if you don’t keep emotions in check. This complicated situation is not a job for one. Consult a respected colleague or call a mentor to help you make sense of what’s really going on. A calm, experienced person can also help you keep things in perspective and NOT take them to heart.

You have what it takes to navigate whatever challenge gets hurled your way. While it’s no fun to have your plans foiled, see this as a chance to show off your creativity and innovative ideas. Roll with the punches, and your leadership skills will shine. And above all, remember: You don’t have to figure this out alone! See the full week >
Today’s cosmic clash between antsy Mercury and unpredictable Uranus can churn up some high-octane emotions: anxiety, fear, jealousy. All this intensity could find you bolting for the nearest exit—or on the verge of losing your temper. Avoid such breakdowns by eliminating as many stressors from your day as possible. Don’t weather this alone, either. Reach out to calm people who can help you restore perspective—not the crisis junkies who thrive on drama. See the full week >
Brace yourself: Someone in your world could deliver a bit of harsh feedback today. With anxious Mercury opposing volatile Uranus, expect your ideas and plans to be called into question. But don’t shoot the messenger, Scorpio! If you can’t defend your stance, perhaps there’s work left to do in fortifying your mission. Ditch the defensive stance and take a more collaborative approach, even if the advice is tough to swallow. If your emotions are running too high, put the conversation on hold and pick it up tomorrow. Compromise is possible, but only when you’re able to hear the input as constructive. See the full week >
Tap into the power of surrender, Sagittarius. As messenger Mercury opposes unpredictable Uranus, your attempts at control are futile. Instead of trying to force a certain outcome, just let go and see what happens. You’ll gain a lot more insight if you step back and observe—and you’ll be able to see others for who they really are. A pleasant surprise might be in store. You could be impressed with how someone steps up, which will strengthen your trust and solidify the bond. See the full week >
Today’s Mercury-Uranus opposition warns against putting your eggs in one basket. You’re no stranger to calculated risk-taking, but this particular situation could prove to be more unstable than you originally anticipated. Check out what other options exist, and get a Plan B in place. Your social network—online and off—may provide great intel to help you with choosing the right course (or courses!) of action. Once you see you’ve got a bundle of alternatives, you’ll feel a whole lot calmer. See the full week >
Home doesn’t feel like much of a haven today, courtesy of a face-off between distracting Mercury and erratic Uranus. If your work has been all-consuming lately, a close friend or relative could feel hurt and sidelined. But maybe they just don’t understand how busy you are—especially if you’ve been silently (and thanklessly) making their lives easier with all that you provide. Don’t be afraid to remind them how much they’ve benefited from your long hours at the office. That said, if you’ve been remiss in spending quality time, a spontaneous dinner or an evening of bonding could rekindle the good vibes. See the full week >
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Don’t operate on assumptions, Pisces. Under today’s tricky face-off between antsy Mercury and volatile Uranus, it’s important to get all the details up front. People might not be completely forthcoming, which will get you into trouble down the road. Play it safe and get everything in writing. It doesn’t need to be a formal contract; even an email will do. Take extra care with your own words and keep the sarcasm to a minimum. One of your off-the-cuff comments could mislead someone or even hurt their feelings. See the full week >
