Your Weekly Horoscopes: February 4 to 10, 2024

Inward reflection and outward risk-taking

Conversations pick up this week as communication planet Mercury enters open-minded Aquarius. This shift is significant because just after entering the fixed air sign, Mercury will conjoin transformation planet Pluto on the 5th. Mercury-Pluto is an aspect that probes and investigates. With this being the first time that an inner planet has conjoined Pluto in Aquarius in almost 300 years, it’s important to pay attention to what’s happening on a personal as well as a collective level. The new moon in Aquarius on the 9th allows us to set some forward-thinking intentions.

With both the sun and Venus connecting with Uranus (on the 7th and 8th), there are plenty of opportunities this week to take risks and put yourself out there. Romance and creativity are blooming. Who brings out the lover and artist in you?

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

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

January has been filled with challenges in your closest relationships. Some of those challenges have torn you apart, but others have brought you even closer together.

Virgo (August 23 - September 23)

Mercury enters your daily grind sector on the 5th and your usually manageable daily schedule gets pushed to the brink of too busy.

This week’s mantra: “Downshift.”

Libra (September 23 - October 21)

Mercury enters your romance and creativity sector on the 5th and suddenly you have a new crush. This is an intellectual kind of connection, one where you’re texting all day and laughing all night. It’s easy to get obsessive about someone you’re into, but remember that your romantic life is better when you focus on your own desires. Trust yourself to go after what you want.

This week’s mantra: “Lover.”

Scorpio (October 22 - November 21)

Mercury enters your home sector on the 5th and suddenly you have the urge to deep clean your house. You’re dusting places that have never been dusted and replacing light bulbs that have needed changing for years. Obsessing over the details has a therapeutic quality, just be careful not to get too carried away. Invite a friend over to help keep you grounded.

This week’s mantra: “Refresh.”

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Everyone has something to say to you this week as Mercury enters your communication sector on the 5th. There’s some obsessive energy in the air that might have you poring through the comment section or going off in the group chat. Before you lose yourself in the drama, take a step back and consider whether any of this actually matters.

This week’s mantra: “Release.”

A cheeky image of a woman of color with dark hair holding a pink goat by the horns. The background is pink and her shirt is darker pink.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

As Mercury enters Aquarius on the 5th, you’re inspired to ask for what you want. You’re already super busy at work, dealing with power struggles and difficult coworkers, but make sure to take some time away from the drama to focus on your own needs. Take an extra-long lunch and get back to your Pilates class. You deserve some self-care.

This week’s mantra: “Reset.”

Cheeky image of a Black woman with blue hair on a light blue background. She's holding blue water in her palms, which is bubbling up and taking shape as her hair.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

You’re buzzing with ideas once Mercury enters your sign on the 5th. Whether you’re presenting to investors or having a heart-to-heart with a friend, your words have a great impact this week so choose them carefully. If you’re looking for inspiration, a sudden turn of events on the 8th gets your juices flowing.

Some disturbing but revealing thoughts might come to you in a dream this week as Mercury enters your unconscious sector on the 5th bringing out your (always present but not always acted upon) psychic side. The question is less about what’s truth and what’s fiction and more about what you’re feeling in your gut.

This week’s mantra: “Intuition.”
