Your Horoscope For This Week — Feb 16 2014

Sayonara, Age of Aquarius, and hello, Pisces. The sun swims its way into the fish's house Tuesday, and with it comes a clean slate. So, go for whatever inkling you've had an itch for; dive right on in.
Wanderlust is in the air, and this is the week to start packing the bags for whatever adventure awaits. Grab friends and explore — we still have a few more weeks of winter left, after all. Perhaps a change of scenery isn't what's needed, though. Perhaps it's time to schedule that salon appointment, pull a Taylor Swift, and chop your locks. Or, it's time to bite the plastic and revamp that closet for the spring. Basically, it's the week to do you, and, if there was any week to do it, it's this. Let's go!

Pisces (February 20-March 20)
Happy birthday to you! The Sun blazes into Pisces for a month beginning this Tuesday, February 18. Stop diving into that same old, unfulfilling cesspool of despair. It’s time to swim into fresh waters, even if that means leaving certain people and unfinished situations in your rearview mirror. Saying goodbye is not the sign of a colossal fail, but rather a mark of maturity. Besides, when you step back, the worthy candidates will have the space to rise up and prove themselves.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
One ticket to Canyon Ranch, please…or maybe just a Bahamian beach. With the Sun slipping into your twelfth house of healing and restoration for a month, it’s time to put the brakes on your manic pace and give your body and soul a chance to catch up with your mind. This is the final phase of your annual zodiac cycle. On March 20, the Sun will blaze into Aries for a month, charging you up with sparkle and initiative once again. Until then, just chill — and start letting go of the baggage you don’t want to bring into your next year of life.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You’ve been a bossy Bull for the past four weeks, but it’s getting pretty lonely at the top. Embrace the spirit of teamwork as the Sun blazes through Pisces and your collaborative eleventh house until March 20. Sharing the glory? You won’t mind it a bit. You’re more interested in connecting with fascinating erudites, free thinkers, and radical revolutionaries. A web venture brings the promise of prosperity. Do your research now then get to developing when Mercury turns direct on February 28.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You could be royal, Gemini, especially with the Sun in your house of power and leadership from February 18 until March 20. No need to fight, flaunt, or pull any publicity stunts. The cream always rises to the top, so just focus on doing your best and following the signals the universe sends your way. You’ll know you’re on the right path when you feel a sense of ease, not stress. Remember to delegate, too. Doing it all by your lonesome won’t get you to the finish line.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Your inner gypset takes the helm for the next four weeks. Grab your hobo bag, passport, and bandeau bikini — and maybe some hiking shoes too. You could be trekking the Incan trail or lounging in a Hawaiian surf town before the spring equinox on March 20. Mingle multiculturally close to home. Sparks could fly with someone whose background and packaging is quite different than your own. Thinking of going back to school, starting a business, or even teaching a class of your own? The stars are on your side, so give it a go!

Leo (July 23-August 22)
You’ll come in like a wrecking ball this week — no apologies, Leo. With the Sun blazing into your eighth house of transformation for a month, it’s officially extreme makeover time. Tear down old structures to pave the way for the new. You can have your Fifty Shades of Grey love, but first you have to be black-and-white about the rules. Lay down the gauntlet with the object of your affections…or maybe yourself: Are you in or are you out?

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Ready to put a ring on it? Absolutely, Virgo. Whether it’s a promise ring, engagement ring, or a label that rings so true, you want your relationships guaranteed this week. With the Sun in Pisces and your seventh house of commitments, you’re done waffling. Clearly lay out what you desire so the object of your affections has a clue. Should intuition scream, “Get Away!” follow your hunches there, too. You have more options than you realize, but you won’t see them while you’re obsessing over a commitment-phobe.

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Off with the Louboutins, on with the Lululemon. With the Pisces Sun lighting up your healthy living sector for the next four weeks, you’ll want to give hedonism the heave ho and get an early start to your spring training. Pinpoint a friend who has “fitness buddy” written all over him or her. As a partnership-minded Libra, everything is easier when you have someone with whom you can share the experience — not to mention hang out at the juice bar when you’re done breaking a sweat.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Curtains up, Scorpio! After a month of chilling behind the scenes, the limelight is calling your name. Flaunt your talents instead of waiting to be discovered. You could even find yourself on camera or in the media over the coming four weeks. If Cupid’s arrows missed your address last week, fear not. You have an extended Valentine’s month now so don’t be surprised if your spring awakening comes before the March 20 equinox.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Drop the suitcase, Sagittarius, and put down some roots. With the Sun touring Pisces and your domestic fourth house for the next month, you could use some hardcore nesting. Cook! Decorate! Capture it all on your blog! Channel your inner Lena Dunham, too, because you’ll prefer the company of your girls over all others. How about playing host? Blow up the air mattress and invite one of your BFFs from back in the day to crash for a bit. The slumber-party style reunions are an affirming confidence booster.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Make it a double, Capricorn! Partnering up helps you expand your reach over the next four weeks. You won’t have to travel far from home to find your collaborators. Give the locals first dibs. A sibling, coworker, or your pal in Apartment 2B could be your ideal collaborators now, too. That said, you don’t want to be too insular. This garrulous month-long phase gives your social-butterfly wings a workout. Dabble, mingle, and network but don’t rush to become an official member of any organization quite yet.

Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
Set your Spotify to the slow-jams station. After four wild weeks of the Sun in Aquarius, your birthday time officially wraps this Tuesday. Now, Pisces rules the skies, illuminating your second house of money and foundations until March 20. Translation? Time to get your $#!% together, Aquarius, and tighten up that vegan-leather belt of yours. If you focus, your work life will flourish. There could even be a raise, promotion, or brand-new job in the coming month. But first, settle down and prove that you’re reliable.
