WE’VE GOT SOME EMO­TIONAL PRO­CESS­ING to do this week — it’s a good time to heal, catch up with our­selves, and get on with our work. Af­ter the week­end, the as­tro­log­i­cal ground is fer­tile to meet new peo­ple and make pro­fes­sional over­tures.

How­ever, we may be tested first. The week­end be­gins un­der a friendly and hard­work­ing over­lay, but there is an eas­ily an­gered and ac­ci­dent-prone Mars-Uranus ir­ri­tat­ing us un­der­neath. This as­pect can make even tec­tonic plates rest­less. At the same time, our hearts are brought back to re­cent losses or dis­ap­pointed dreams as Venus con­juncts Pluto — but we can let this poignant re­minder give us a new ap­pre­ci­a­tion for what we have left. A prag­matic Capricorn moon asks us not to just whine or mourn but to do some­thing prac­ti­cal in re­sponse.

Through­out the week, be care­ful to solve the real prob­lem. Af­ter a po­ten­tially event­ful or emo­tional Fri­day, the en­ergy shifts quickly with an op­ti­mistic trine be­tween thought­ful Mer­cury and ex­pan­sive Jupiter. A so­cially and aes­thet­i­cally rest­less Venus-Uranus square whis­pers that a change of peo­ple or lo­ca­tion could solve all our prob­lems while a pas­sion­ate sex­tile be­tween Venus and Mars adds ex­tra juice. Be care­ful or the lone­li­ness of the Venus-Pluto con­junc­tion can make us doubt or test our re­la­tion­ships, when re­ally it de­scribes a more ex­is­ten­tial lone­li­ness.

It is a great week to meet new peo­ple, though. On Mon­day the new moon in col­lab­o­ra­tive Aquarius helps us launch into a co­op­er­a­tive and cre­ative time. Use that so­cial rest­less­ness to make new con­tacts, par­tic­u­larly at work and in pol­i­tics.

Mid­week a Pisces moon can leave us emo­tion­ally sen­si­tive but newly able to make some cre­ative de­ci­sions. The moon in Aries on Thurs­day brings back our ac­tive, can- do rad­i­cal edge.

FRI­DAY, FEB. 5: Hang in there on this po­lit­i­cally dif­fi­cult, po­ten­tially event­ful day. The mood is de­ter­mined but eas­ily frus­trated and emo­tion­ally in­tense; make de­ci­sions for the long haul. The mood can shift swiftly over the week­end. Sup­port one an­other through a rest­less night.

SATUR­DAY, FEB. 6: Overnight events or dreams cre­ate a very dif­fer­ent land­scape. We want free­dom from the weight we’ve been car­ry­ing and to try new op­tions. We crave new aes­thet­ics and want to re­or­ga­nize the house or change up our so­cial life, but let’s not throw the baby out with the bath wa­ter. A so­cia­ble Aquarius moon en­cour­ages us to gather to­gether tonight — new con­nec­tions are in the air.

SUN­DAY, FEB. 7: No­tice pres­sure to join or fa­cil­i­tate other peo­ple’s plans. Avoid ma­nip­u­la­tion or be­ing ma­nip­u­lated. A good struc­tural sense en­cour­ages us to or­ga­nize and build.

MON­DAY, FEB. 8: What be­gins to­day will have wind un­der its wings. The new moon in Aquarius at 7:38 a.m. en­cour­ages us to start a new chap­ter in our in­ter­per­sonal ac­tiv­i­ties. Look for aus­pi­cious political an­nounce­ments. In­sti­gate meet­ings and op­por­tu­ni­ties. New con­tacts may be im­por­tant. Let’s act with one an­other in a way we’d like to con­tinue and es­tab­lish new habits.

TUES­DAY, FEB. 9: Al­though we stay highly com­pe­tent, we be­come softer as the moon en­ters Pisces and con­juncts in­tu­itive Nep­tune. Watch out for co-de­pen­dent be­hav­ior. Wa­ter may be prob­lem­atic.

WED­NES­DAY, FEB. 10: A ten­der and op­ti­mistic, if touchy, mood can help us for­give oth­ers as long as they don’t re­trig­ger us. We want to free our­selves of grudges, stuff, and un­nec­es­sary work to make more room for what mat­ters.

THURS­DAY, FEB. 11: The mood is rest­less, up­beat, and prag­mat­i­cally so­cia­ble, if a bit pushy. Be hon­est about strangely com­pet­i­tive un­der­tones. Brav­ery helps us spark with new peo­ple.
