This is a time for checking your work or editing, dear Aries, and you may very well enjoy a break in this way. Still, criticism or miscommunications are possible with a Mercury-Saturn minor challenge that reminds us of the flaws more than the benefits of a situation. Do your best to be flexible and avoid taking smaller problems and inconveniences to heart. While mental pressure is possible, a Mercury-Pluto aspect influencing the day helps you see the value of strategy. You might benefit from digging a little deeper into a matter. Information surfacing now tends to be helpful and even healing or purging. This transit can help you find the perfect project or pursuit. You feel more directed.


The Moon heads into your intimacy sector for a couple of days, dear Taurus. Thoughts and perhaps interactions can easily turn serious today as there is some heaviness to the day’s energy. Most of this surrounds your career, life direction, ambitions, friends, or reputation. While you’d like to detach yourself from it, it can be a bit of a challenge right now. However, you have people in your corner. If you can focus, excellent energy is with you for solving a mystery or throwing yourself into a passion project. You are a little braver than usual about sharing private matters, or others are trusting you with confidential information. Communications, especially with friends, are especially deep or rewarding. Your own thoughts and musings can lead you to important places. It’s a fine time for discovering new layers of a situation.


The Moon heads into your partnership sector for a couple of days, dear Gemini, bringing on a more social, interactive theme. Even so, there is serious or sober energy surrounding your thinking processes and communications today, especially revolving around your beliefs, opinions, transportation, commuting, and perspective. It can be that you’re dealing with minor inconveniences and having a hard time finding the chance to think clearly or to see the big picture. There can also be serious conversations and criticism to deal with now. Keep in mind, though, that difficulties today can lead to excellent solutions. As well, a Mercury-Pluto aspect is on the horizon, helping you use your resources intelligently. This transit encourages you to slow down and develop strategies, make plans, and dig deeply into a matter to find out more. The details that were overlooked earlier are now fascinating and valuable to you. You’re also more aware of and intrigued by uncharted territories and all that is hidden, taboo, or secret. You might see private matters on a new level and could find an opening on an issue you thought was closed.


The Moon moves into your work and health sector for a couple of days, dear Cancer, putting you in the perfect frame of mind to set things right. The mood is on the serious side with Mercury’s aspects to Saturn and Pluto. It’s possible that you must deal with more than the usual inconveniences or unwelcome advice and critique, but nothing you can’t handle. Try not to take offhand remarks too seriously, even if they appear contrary. By avoiding identifying too strongly with these things, you can keep some composure and enjoy today’s opportunities. If you put some picky details behind you, you can be particularly motivated to tidy up your life in key ways. You may be setting rules and limits and gaining new insights into your relationships or projects now. You’re focused on what’s substantial, and you have far less concern about the extras, making it an excellent time for meaningful work. Conversations can be very enlightening, particularly those that address philosophical interests and the future. You have a little more courage than usual to seek out and face the truth. It’s an excellent time for understanding a new or different perspective.


Today’s Venus-Saturn transit is supportive and steadying, dear Leo. While there may be some reserve in your relationships and connections, there can be an excellent feeling of constancy. Attention to strengthening projects and relationships can have long-term benefits. It’s a good time to dedicate yourself to a project or activity that requires your strong attention. You’re likely to enjoy a pleasant, steady atmosphere around you that is comfortable and satisfying. Clarity may come to a relationship, or you benefit from a helpful and constructive conversation. Old wisdom or experience may come into play. Focus on strengthening ties in the long run and be as patient as possible with others for best results now. It can feel good to consider your commitments and how you might honor them. It’s a day for recognizing the importance and value of trust in our relationships.


The Moon heads into your communications sector for a couple of days, dear Virgo, and you seek mentally engaging activities. However, with Venus and Saturn harmonizing today, it’s a good time for realistic assessments related to your health, work, or financial matters. You can more clearly see what needs to be improved or changed, and making adjustments comes with few if any regrets. Meeting responsibilities feels satisfying, and you might apply wisdom or good advice with success. It’s a good time to repair or boost relationships in simple but effective ways. Showing affection through loyalty and reliability is well-supported right now. Work that requires analysis or research is likely to go especially well.


Mercury moves into harmony with your sign after spending time tucked away in your home sector, dear Libra, and it can feel quite liberating as you become less guarded. With Mercury now in your entertainment, romance, and pleasure sector, it’s more comfortable and natural to express your ideas and opinions. You’re more communicative and friendly during this cycle that lasts until March 15th, and you’re inclined to seek intellectual entertainment or mental stimulation. There can be a stronger need for communications and movement in a romantic relationship. Later today, a theme of impatience or disagreement can emerge, although it’s rather quick to evaporate. It’s best not to speak too soon or without thinking while it lasts, as what you say may not represent how you feel. Disruptions now can stir up new ideas, but it’s best to watch for abrupt moves to avoid complications. If you are impatient with others instead of assertive and direct, then you run the risk of unnecessary stress.


Mercury begins its transit of the sector of your solar chart that rules heart, home, and family, dear Scorpio. Thought processes are inward and intuitive during this cycle that lasts until March 15th. There can be a lot to learn about (or through) family and close loved ones in the weeks ahead. Thoughts and conversations often turn to domestic affairs, family concerns, or the past. You are not as communicative in the outside world, and you may not feel quite as understood or “heard” at this time. You may be a little more guarded than usual with your thoughts and ideas. However, it’s another story in your personal life, which is far busier. Later today, there can be some tensions if you give in to pressures to push a matter or to rush through things. There can be some abruptness in communications or actions, which might lead to unnecessary complications. Kept under check, you may find ways to break out along a new path of expression. Try not to rush things, and don’t let others boss you around, and you’ll have a better chance of resolving problems.



Mercury completes its transit of your resources sector, dear Sagittarius, and now enters your communications sector. As the planet of communications, it feels right at home there! This cycle that lasts until March 15th helps you make sharper assessments and gain some mental clarity. It encourages reaching out, making connections, picking up new interests and skills, and sharing your ideas. Learning, teaching, studying, and conversations flow naturally now. Later today, Mercury forms a hard aspect to Mars, which can generate some tension if you give in to pressures to rush something through. Impatience can be a problem, particularly with ideas. Simplifying or focusing on one thing at a time may help. Watch for hasty moves and jumping too quickly to conclusions. Slowing down just a little can ultimately get you where you want to go, if not faster, more smoothly.



Mercury moves out of your sign and into your resources sector today, dear Capricorn, where it will stay until March 15th. This influence is beneficial for your practical affairs–you’re bringing more intelligence and attention to matters related to finances, valuables, possessions, and security or comfort. These very things can also be strongly on your mind in the weeks ahead! You can pick up useful, practical information, mainly because this is the kind of information you seek most. Later today, Mercury and Mars form a challenging square aspect, and it’s best not to rush conclusions or statements. It’s far easy to say something you later regret under this influence. It may not be easy to relax temporarily, but tension might push you to take care of something you’ve let go. Taking something as an intellectual challenge may be your best bet. Moderation and patience are key, even if they’re difficult to put into practice.



The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, inclining you to nurture your ambitions today, dear Aquarius. You’re especially aware of your influence and reputation now. Also today, Mercury enters your sign, and until March 15th, you’re finding your voice and making snappier decisions. It’s a self-starting and sometimes restless cycle. You may need to put a little extra effort into making time to relax. Otherwise, it’s a strong period for mental clarity. You prefer to take the lead when it comes to mental or intellectual tasks rather than consult others or collaborate. While Mercury transiting your sign is a mostly helpful influence, it forms a square to Mars today, and you should watch for the tendency to jump the gun. It’s best not to rush now — problems may result from pushing something too quickly. Try not to give in to pressures to say or do something in haste. It’s also possible that family or home matters can conflict with your plans, or people close to you may be annoyed by your attention to other things. There may be a disagreement that requires putting egos aside to resolve.


Mercury begins its transit of your privacy sector today, dear Pisces. Until March 15th, your decision-making skills and thought processes tend to be more intuitive, inward, or solitary. It’s a good cycle for processing recent experiences, as well as for reasoning your way through issues that you’ve left unfinished or pushed to the side. You can arrive at a greater understanding of your life, and you might help others with words of advice and wisdom. You’re looking at the past from a new perspective and paying more attention to your private life. Even so, Mercury forms a challenging aspect to Mars later today, and it can fire you up to take care of a problem area. However, it’s better to avoid rushing words or actions now. Unresolved matters can weigh on your mind, which can distract you or incline you to rush through communications. Tense or rushed speech can, in turn, lead to unnecessary complications or misunderstandings. There might also be competitiveness with others that irritates rather than motivates. Try not to put plans into motion because you’re impatient–wait until you’re confident and have time to put more thought into them.
