Your Weekly Horoscope February 20 to 26, 2022

Still feeling a hangover from last week’s Leo full moon? This week’s cosmic weather gives us a chance to breathe and recover from all those major revelations. Venus and Mars both connect with dreamy Neptune (on the 23rd and 24th respectively) bringing creativity, passion and sensuality to all of our relationships. Communication planet Mercury also squares off with Uranus on the 24th shaking up our thinking on matters that have become stale. This aspect calls for making a big statement. Think: Bjork (who was born with this aspect in her natal chart) taking the red carpet by storm in her swan dress. Mercury last traveled through this part of the zodiac on January 14th, so communication challenges that came up then may finally be resolved now.

(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)

12 aries

For months, it’s felt like you’ve done nothing but beg for other people’s attention. It’s not that no one can see your efforts, it’s just that no one seems to care. You’re feeling discouraged and wondering why you ever tried to build an audience in the first place. As Mars connects with hazy Neptune on the 23rd though, you’re reminded that sometimes all you can do is release control and see what happens. Once you let go of your expectations, you’ll get the recognition that you crave.

This week’s mantra: “Opportunity is all around me.”

1 taurus

The full moon in Leo on the 16th found you taking some time to ground after months of major changes to your life circumstances. Whether you moved across the country, started school or finally confronted your in-laws, you needed the break. But this week, you’re back to dreaming big and making waves. You’ve spent so much time over the last few years caught up in your own imagination and now it’s time to let more of your friends and community in on your ideas. Throw things out there and see what sticks.

This week’s mantra: “I know what I’m doing.”

2 gemini

Whether you’re deep in a job search or desperate to find better childcare for your kid, now’s the time to ask for help. Get in touch with all those friends who owe you a favor and milk those connections for whatever their worth. Set up a free career coaching session with your former coworker and take up your cousin on her offer to spend more time with your kids. When you combine powers, your influence grows.

This week’s mantra: “Why do it alone?”

3 cancer

Maybe you’re in the final round of interviews for your dream job or heading into a make-or-break third date with a great match. Whatever it is, you have the power to get what you want this week. The value you bring to any relationship is undeniable. Trust that you’ve already made a seductive case for yourself and now it’s up to them to prove they can match both your energy and your values. What works feels easy. There’s no need to fight.

This week’s mantra: “I’ve set myself up for blessings.”

4 leo

You’ve made so many strides in your relationship over the last few months, but through it all, you’ve been avoiding some important and time sensitive conversations about money. This week’s transits, especially on the 23rd and 24th, support you having some honest discussions with your partner. It’s time to get all those financial worries out on the table. You can’t keep putting yourself into debt just to keep up appearances. There are compromises available if you’re willing to be vulnerable.

This week’s mantra: “If I know about it, I can work with it.”

5 virgo

Though this week has some of your friends caught in a daydream, you’re feeling forced back into reality. Unfortunately this also means you’re picking up a lot of other people’s slack. Unexpected news about travel or education arrives on the 24th affecting not only long term plans but also your current daily schedule. This situation puts your flexibility to the test. Instead of falling into your usual trap of perfectionism, try to embrace the freedom of winging some things for now and figuring the rest out later.

This week’s mantra: “I’m ready for whatever life throws at me.”

6 libra

Last week’s full moon brought a fresh romance to your life (or a hobby or a creative obsession) and now you get to enjoy the honeymoon period. This is the week for catching up on your Netflix binge, spending more time with your kids and blocking off an evening to do nothing but cook an indulgent meal with your hubby or your crush. If it’s work, then it can wait. Surrender to the simple, sensual pleasure of it all, especially on the 24th.

This week’s mantra: “I choose happiness.”

7 scorpio

You’re a creature of habit, Scorpio, but the pandemic has forced you to take on a whole lot of change. You’re probably wondering when every change will stop feeling like a major loss. This week gives you an opportunity to reclaim joy in your environment. Adopt more houseplants! Slice some fresh lemons for your water! Use your loyalty points at the local natural wine shop on that gorgeous pét nat! Everything around you benefits from your attention and care.

This week’s mantra: “I bring joy to my surroundings.”

8 sagittarius

You’ve been dreading bringing up a conversation about finances with your partner or your roommates. But expenses at home are getting out of control and you can’t be the only one covering all the bills. On the 23rd as action planet Mars connects with meditative Neptune, what felt like it had to be a confrontation becomes more of a free flowing conversation about your circumstances and values. You have much more to lose if you keep holding back.

This week’s mantra: “Split the bill.”


Most of your social circle already looks to you as the responsible friend, but this week you’re given the opportunity to really shine as the leader of the pack. Whether you’re breaking through indecision over dinner plans in the group chat or taking the initiative to book the VRBO for the bachelorette party, everyone is grateful when you take control. How can you bring more of this energy to solving problems in your own schedule and routines?

This week’s mantra: “I have the solutions.”

10 aquarius

While cleaning out your closets this week, you discover that you have quite a few classic pieces that might be worth re-selling on Poshmark or donating to Goodwill. Who knew you had so much buried treasure in your own home? Take this as a sign that all the work you’re doing behind the scenes is worth it. Your time in the spotlight will come eventually but keep doing what you’re doing for now. It’s all part of the process.

This week’s mantra: “There’s gold here.”

11 pisces

You have everyone’s attention this week but per usual, it’s because friends, family and even random ex-coworkers are flocking to you for advice. You make being a strong support system look easy but that doesn’t mean you have the time to focus on everyone else’s problems. An unexpected email or phone call on the 24th breaks you out of this cycle and brings your focus back to your own projects.

This week’s mantra: “I know what deserves my time.”
