THIS VALEN­TINE’S DAY, with Venus in in­dus­tri­ous Capricorn, one might get away with giv­ing com­puter parts or some other highly prac­ti­cal present to a beloved. Let those presents be thought­ful even if they’re use­ful. Capricorn en­cour­ages us to be goal ori­ented.

Fri­day brings some con­trary mo­ments as an im­pa­tient Aries moon con­juncts Uranus and chal­lenges Venus. With that mar­velous in­con­sis­tency that is hu­man na­ture, we will re­sist be­ing con­trolled but be tempted to try and con­trol oth­ers.

The mood calms down and grows cud­dly over the week­end as the moon works through earthy Taurus. With the sun and Mer­cury in Aquarius, we can build up ideal ab­stract ex­pec­ta­tions around Valen­tine’s Day and then have trou­ble en­joy­ing what ac­tu­ally hap­pens be­cause they don’t match our ideals.

Af­ter an emo­tional be­gin­ning of the year, we are ready to roll. There are fewer dis­trac­tions and more sup­port for our goals this week. The aspects will be sat­is­fy­ing if we know what we are here to do. Mer­cury joins the sun in Aquarius on Sun­day, and Venus fol­lows on Tues­day, and asks us to take our work out to the com­mu­nity.

Com­mu­ni­ca­tion rocks early next week un­der a talk­a­tive Gemini moon. But with more hu­man in­con­sis­tency, we may in­ter­rupt oth­ers and yet be ir­ri­tated by in­ter­rup­tions our­selves. By the end of the week, a Can­cer moon pulls us in­ward. Take some quiet time so as not to feel spread too thin. Old trust is­sues can bug us — just be de­pend­able and the train will get back on track.

FRI­DAY, FEB. 12: We’re both sen­si­tive and prone to an obliv­i­ous streak un­der an abrupt Aries moon. Let a sense of ur­gency kick things into gear this morn­ing. Mid­day, help only where it’s ac­tu­ally needed, as peo­ple re­sist be­ing man­aged. Evening can be funny, en­er­gized, and opin­ion­ated, but not in­ti­mate.

SATUR­DAY, FEB. 13: Morn­ing me­an­ders as the moon en­ters earthy Taurus. Con­fi­dence and a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude are help­ful this af­ter­noon as Mars sex­tiles Jupiter. We can be sub­tly but sur­pris­ingly com­pet­i­tive and pos­ses­sive. Stay f lex­i­ble and re­spon­sive. Cheer up those who need it this evening.

SUN­DAY, FEB. 14: Let go of self- con­scious­ness and show love to the com­mu­nity as the moon trines Pluto this morn­ing. Mid­day, be gen­er­ous, but catch code­pen­dent pat­terns and break that cy­cle. Af­ter­noon and evening are warm and friendly as a com­fort­able Taurus moon forms a grand trine with Jupiter and Venus. Choose to see the best in one an­other.

MON­DAY, FEB. 15: Write po­etry, work on that book, and get that re­port in un­der a ver­bal Gemini moon. Make over­tures for fu­ture work. The mood is alert if dis­tractible this morn­ing; the af­ter­noon wan­ders a bit. Rest tonight and start again to­mor­row.

TUES­DAY, FEB. 16: Af­ter morn­ing de­lays, the con­ver­sa­tion picks up speed this af­ter­noon. Share news but avoid gos­sip. Tonight, sleep can be chal­leng­ing if the mind buzzes.

WED­NES­DAY, FEB. 17: We can be testy this morn­ing. We are tempted to bring up an old hurt, but it wouldn’t be pro­duc­tive as the moon en­ters sen­si­tive Can­cer. When in doubt, mother one an­other.

THURS­DAY, FEB. 18: En­gage the imag­i­na­tion this morn­ing, but don’t push peo­ple out of a shy spell as the moon trines Nep­tune. Feel­ings are a lit­tle raw this evening — tough mem­o­ries can trig­ger in­se­cu­ri­ties. Only deal with to­day’s prob­lems as the moon op­poses Pluto.
