Mars will leave Aries for Taurus next week (on Valentine’s Day), but before he goes he’s on the brakes-come-off/strike-while-the-iron’s-hot/fast-track-it trajectory. Through the weekend, Mars moves through a pivotal intersection with the karmic axis (south node in Capricorn, north node in Cancer). Mars wants to cut through the red tape of the past—to stop being held up or dragged down by it—and to get on with living more fully in the present. Too much time has been spent on dealing with the old fires. We need to be free to fire up something fresh and new.
Mercury leaves Aquarius for Pisces on Sunday, but before it goes it is friending Uranus. Saturday is the best of the weekend for getting around, getting caught up, and getting a good jump on Valentine’s Day. The moon in Aries continues for most of Sunday. In the moment is your best play.
Due to next month’s retrograde, Mercury will be on an extended tour of Pisces through mid-April. This transit stirs plenty of potential, but it also keeps the fluidity and uncertainty going. Stay hopeful, open, and receptive, but keep your feet on the ground.
Monday/Tuesday, the stars set up a lucrative and productive backdrop. At the same time, something is building steam. It is about to ignite, erupt, break apart, or explode. Mars strikes it hot with Uranus in Aries late Tuesday and into Wednesday. Mars/Uranus is an excitement junkie—a rash, volatile, inflaming, risk-taking, or accident-prone combination. Anything goes, suddenly so.
March 20 - April 20
Mars, tenanting Aries since January 1, has kept you/kept life in drive. Now through mid–next week, Mars is going all out with Uranus. Tuesday/Wednesday, watch for something unexpected to overtake you; it could be a sudden flash of inspiration, a breakthrough, a cut to the chase, a sudden flare-up, a hot emotion, or a reactionary response. There’s no turning back; put safety first!
April 20 - May 21
Now through mid–next week, something could suddenly go pop or snap. One way or another, Mercury, Mars, and Uranus can energize, enlighten, inspire, push, or provoke you.

Starting Sunday, Mercury in Pisces stirs up fresh social, romantic, or moneymaking potential.
May 21 - June 21
While you may have to push through to begin with, the second half of Saturday rocks, thanks to Mercury/Uranus and the moon in Aries boosting physical energy, activities, good ideas, and social synchronicity. On Sunday, Mercury treks into Pisces. It’s a put-your-feet-up/go-with-the-flow influence, but through mid–next week, Mars/Uranus keep it edgy. Wednesday, keep open-ended.
June 21 - July 22
At a crossroads? The next few days can prompt or force you to make a decisive move. While it is important to stay responsible and to meet your obligations, don’t let the fear of change or a sense of obligation keep you from getting your personal needs met. If it isn’t working for you, try something new. Saturday to Tuesday, take your best shot.
July 22 - August 23

Potentials are especially ripe; go with your gut but know, at any moment, that anything goes.

Someone or something unexpected could rock your world. Thinking on your feet can be necessary.
October 23 - November 22
Now through mid–next week could see you make an important breakthrough regarding work, your health, a process, or a communication track.

Don’t assume; take nothing for granted but grab opportunity.
November 22 - December 21
The next couple of days can jettison you past a pressure point or hold up and into something fresh. Saturday/Sunday, you’re on a roll with activities, conversations, ideas, and entertainment choices.

Get your sexy on but guard against recklessness, reactiveness, or impulsiveness.
December 21 - January 20
Whether by choice, opportunity, push-come-to-shove circumstances, or something sudden and unexpected, now through mid–next week can be an important decision-making or threshold-crossing time. Mars in Aries is on a breakthrough with the karmic axis through the weekend and with Uranus on Tuesday/Wednesday. Off with the old and on with the next, pronto-quick.
January 20 - February 18

Don’t hesitate to go for it when opportunity strikes.
