WE’RE FIRED UP AND READY TO GO, but may not agree about where. Venus and Mars are con­junct in fiery, di­rect Aries, and keep us pas­sion­ately en­gaged. Our soul’s his­tamines can in­flame quickly, leav­ing us al­ler­gic to any­thing we con­sider wrong or of­fen­sive. We can pour our in­dus­tri­ous hearts into our work as long as we can keep our fo­cus, but that can be a chal­lenge.

With Venus and Mars in Aries, we can also love fiercely. This heat is just in time for a spicy, if not nec­es­sar­ily ro­man­tic, Valen­tine’s week. Con­sider keep­ing Valen­tine dates to an ac­tive or spon­ta­neous ex­pe­ri­ence; we may just be too wound up to spend an even­ing star­ing at one an­other in can­dle­light.

Fri­day brings a high-pro­file full-moon par­tial eclipse in dra­matic Leo, and it may be the most ro­man­tic night of the week. We need to pon­der how we fur­ther our per­sonal nar­ra­tive while we take care of those around us, both per­son­ally and as a coun­try.

The moon en­ters re­flec­tive Virgo over the week­end and re­minds us to take care of our­selves when the worlds feel stress­ful. Early next week the moon en­ters Li­bra and asks us what is fair and bal­anced — it may not be our mood. We can use funny, spon­ta­neous mo­ments to un­wind and con­nect with those who care if our life is bright and eq­ui­table.

Our mood be­comes barbed on Thurs­day as the moon en­ters fo­cused, stub­born Scor­pio. Our con­cen­tra­tion is stronger when we’re on track, and our vit­riol in­creases when we’re ticked off. Stay on tar­get.

FRI­DAY, FEB. 10: Ex­pect a para­dox­i­cal day of per­sonal ro­mance and po­lit­i­cal melo­drama. We all want to shine, but nar­cis­sism creeps in dur­ing the eclipse at 5:32 p.m. Then, switch gears — it’s a won­der­ful night to talk sweetly and en­gage the heal­ing power of the arts.

SATUR­DAY, FEB. 11: We feel bet­ter if we clean out the in­box or smudge our aura as the moon en­ters nervy Virgo. Anx­i­ety about global is­sues may be ex­pressed on a per­sonal level, and that doesn’t help mat­ters. Ex­pand hori­zons as the sun trines Jupiter tonight.

SUN­DAY, FEB. 12: Our think­ing may be fuzzy to­day. Con­cerns can work them­selves into our dreams as the moon op­poses Nep­tune, but they’re not prophe­cies. Let an af­ter­noon heartache wash through as the moon trines Pluto.

MON­DAY, FEB. 13: We want to feel the world is fair and bal­anced this morn­ing as the moon en­ters eq­ui­table Li­bra and the sun sex­tiles se­ri­ous Saturn. Take an op­por­tu­nity to step away from re­ac­tiv­ity and into con­struc­tive ac­tion. Be there for one an­other in a tan­gi­ble way.

TUES­DAY, FEB. 14: Take ad­van­tage of new av­enues and op­por­tu­ni­ties — com­mu­ni­ca­tion flows fairly eas­ily through­out the af­ter­noon. Crit­i­cism can sharpen around din­ner­time as the moon op­poses Mars — let’s see if we can di­rect this at the world and not at our loved ones. Drop ex­pec­ta­tions and ap­pre­ci­ate con­nec­tions.

WED­NES­DAY, FEB. 15: Clear the air as the moon con­juncts Jupiter this morn­ing. Do it be­fore the moon en­ters Scor­pio tonight, when a sullen edgi­ness can deepen un­healed rifts.

THURS­DAY, FEB. 16: Get to the point and don’t keep peo­ple wait­ing on this po­ten­tially tact­less, in­tel­li­gent-but-bi­ased, strate­gic day. The mood is good for re­search and in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Check in with close friends and fam­ily and make sure they’re in a po­si­tion to lis­ten be­fore pro­cess­ing feel­ings.
