HOROSCOPES FOR THE WEEK OF 2/12.

by Margeaux Sippell

Aquarius season brings about a sense of unity. There is strength in numbers and friends -- this is a week for pursuing a goal with the help of like-minded people. Think of the old adage “many hands make light work” this week as you tackle a lofty goal. Chipping away at when you’re just one person is tough, but with a team that has your back, the difficult becomes easier. This week, have a meaningful conversation with a loved one. Over the weekend, confer ideas with your contemporaries.

Aries

Staying on top of your commitments is of the utmost importance to you this week, as it has been for quite some time now. Keep going. You are fighting the good fight.

Taurus

Someone from the past has recently reached out to you. Decide whether or not it’s in your best interest to re-enter that relationship. There could healing potential in revisiting an old friend, but make sure their influence is healthy for you.

Gemini

Step out of your comfort zone and make a new friend this week. Even if that means simply starting a casual conversation, it will open you up to a new perspective you might not have considered otherwise.

Cancer

You’ve recently undertaken a quest of sorts, and the potential results are gnawing at you. Have faith in your abilities and focus on the journey ahead. The outcome will be a direct result of the sincerity you put into it.

Leo

There is a power struggle happening between you and a colleague. The lines are blurred further into friendship territory. Stand your ground -- your ideas are just as valid and smart as theirs.

Virgo

Take this week to connect with a friend you’ve been putting off seeing. A heartfelt interaction with a soul sister counts for so much more than any romantic endeavor.

Libra

Change is on the horizon. Sink your feet into the earth like an anchor - you are a master of balance. If the elements shake you, it’s because you let them.

Scorpio

Creative energy has you bursting at the seams. There is a new skill you’ve been meaning to learn, but you keep putting it off. Set aside just one hour this week to work on that goal. Once you’ve begun, the hardest part will be behind you.

Sagittarius

Stresses are abounding right now, Sagittarius, but you’re never one to fret. Do what you do best this week and power through high-pressure situations.

Capricorn

You are supportive, but never too a fault -- you know the difference between hearing someone out and enabling them. Use this judgment with a friend this week. You may be the only one who tells them what they really need to hear.

Aquarius

Communication will not come easily this week. When anxiety becomes an obstacle, remind yourself that its goal is to corrupt everything positive and twist your thoughts until you question everything. Remember that the good things in your life still exist even when you can’t see them.

Pisces

You’ve been focusing on your health lately, and you’re just starting to see results. Remember that proud feeling next time you’re thinking of breaking the rules you’ve set for yourself. Don’t let it slip away.
