We kick off this week with Mercury, who’s in Pisces, and Uranus, who’s in Taurus, softly connecting in the cosmos on February 5th. We will discuss our emotions and passions in a lofty manner that will inspire us to keep our dreams alive — even if they are unobtainable at the current moment in time. Venus enters Aries on February 7th, which will make us all work hard for love and money during the upcoming weeks. Mercury aspects the Nodes of Destiny on the 8th, giving us a fated pep talk that will help us achieve our future goals. The Snow Full Moon in Leo occurs on February 9th. During this luminary, we will put our passions and desires first as we embrace our innermost callings and personal truths.


March 21 - April 19

You want to have fun and be social every day; however, your work and personal schedule doesn’t permit it. You will be able to find structure and balance if you stay organized and stick to a concise schedule. Don’t feel anxiety from the stressors of work and not being able to hang out with your friends — both are doable as long as you can complete your work on time. 


April 20 - May 20

All work and no play is not how you like to live — even if you have your dream job. This week calls for you to take time off from the limelight and enjoy the fruits of your labor. By relaxing and detoxing your mind from all of the anxieties that go along with your mundane tasks, you’ll feel rejuvenated and full of creativity at the end of the week. 


May 21 - June 20

You’re nobody’s fool, especially when it comes to the motives of others. This week will bring a harsh dose of reality your way, as you’re catching people in lies. While you may feel like running away from the drama, try to remember that you’re being shown the true nature of others for a reason. The universe is opening your eyes and mind to protect you from harm in the future.


June 21 - July 22

You may feel as though you’ve lost control over certain situations and relationships in your life. Learning to embrace the opinions of others will help you to understand that you do not have complete power over their decisions and all of the random circumstances that occur in the world. Remember the famous words of John Lennon this week, “Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.”


July 23 - August 22

Feelings of insecurities might consume your mind and heart this week. You may even wonder if the whole world has forgotten about you. Of course they haven’t. You’re having temporary setbacks, which are making you feel less than your fabulous self. With some positive daily affirmations done while glaring at your amazing self in the mirror each morning and evening, you’ll be able to beat these sentiments in no time.


August 23 - September 22

It’s time to connect with your subconscious. By that, we mean taking note of your dreams every morning. The key to understanding your hopes and desires comes from your slumber. You may even find that you are able to unlock your truest feelings by acknowledging and picking apart your subconscious. Dream journaling will serve as a guide to your soul, as you’ll find meaning and depth by assessing yourself.


September 23 - October 22

Your inner circle may seem like it’s dwindling this week. To be honest, it may be. You’re cutting ties with friends who do not serve your highest interests anymore, as you’re seeing people for who they truly are at the core. At first, it may be hard to process; however, you’ll find that letting go and separating from such people will help you create a pure and truthful personal vision.


October 23 - November 21

You’ve been hiding away from the spotlight in past weeks, but now you need to appear in public. This may cause you to have mixed emotions, as you have found contentment not being a part of the glare and scrutiny of others. Stand tall and be brave! You’ll be able to squash your anxieties through meditation and allowing yourself to embrace your talents by ignoring those who aim to cut you down. 


November 22 - December 21

It’s never too late to do the right thing, even if you are still dragging your feet around it. This means admitting your wrongdoing or openly discussing your part in a bad situation that may have hurt another  (which may be hard for you to do). You don’t have to give a full-fledged apology, but you do have to acknowledge that you weren’t right in how you handled the matter. 


December 22 - January 19

You get what you give this week — in all areas of life. Knowing how much attention to give to others and situations will be an issue, but by implementing boundaries you’ll be able to find solace in your daily life. Remember, once you set a limit with another, you have to adhere to the newly found structure too. Boundaries are a two way street. Respecting yourself means respecting others. 


January 20 - February 18

Relationship tests are headed your way this week, but you will be able to overcome the emotional drama with flying colors. As long as you are able to strike a balance with others (this includes family, friends, colleagues, and romantic partners), you’ll be able to connect on a deeper level. Negotiate the criteria of what’s expected of you and from others to successfully get through challenging interpersonal dynamics this week. 


February 19 - March 20

Although it may be hard to do, it’s imperative that you start being accountable for your actions. Instead of blaming others for holding you back from exploring your dreams, take responsibility in achieving your desires. You (and you alone) have the power to take charge of your future and to manifest your dreams. With the right motivation, you’ll set forth on a new personal quest and bring your passions to life.
