February 24-March 1, 2020

The sun gently connects with action planet Mars, making it easier to strategize your next move. Maybe it’s painful to end things, but with the help of someone who’s been there before, you can make the changes you need to make. The sun and your planetary ruler Mercury meet, and you have a clear understanding of who you want to be and how you can get there. Mercury gently connects with Mars, helping you understand your strategies more legibly. Take your time and double check your work, or even ask a friend to volunteer for a metaphorical proofreading, because Mercury gently connects with Uranus, planet of surprises, and mistakes can come from left field. Make sure you have a plan B.

The cosmic events behind this week’s horoscope:

The sun gently connects with action planet Mars on Monday, February 24. Through collaboration, things that once seemed impossible get an extra helping hand, or an extra boost of willpower to get things done simply because someone believes in you.

Retrograde Mercury meets with the sun on Tuesday, February 25. While Mercury retrograde in Pisces is extra confusing and requires a lot of repetition and clarification, this meeting with the sun can illuminate any mistakes you didn’t even realize were there! Mercury retrograde gives us space to correct our mistakes and see more possibilities.

Soon after, retrograde Mercury also connects with action planet Mars on Wednesday—tempers may be short and tricky misunderstandings can definitely lead to arguments. Have patience for people who need extra help understanding what you’re saying; chances are you’re not making perfect sense.

The planet of love Venus clashes with power planet Pluto on Friday, February 28 and any unhealthy relationship dynamics can be exacerbated. Pluto is the planet of jealousy, manipulation, and obsession. This can take your relationships deeper in terms of trust, or it may be time to work on any imbalances of power.

Retrograde Mercury gently connects with Uranus on Friday, February 28. Think back to any unsettling or unexpected news you received on February 5, because it comes back around at this time! Make sure you double check your work; accidents happen.

All times ET.
