Your Weekly Horoscopes: February 6 to February 12, 2022

This is the first full week of 2022 with no planets moving retrograde. From now until April 29th, all of the planets will be direct. The cosmic weather is less hectic than it’s been all year, which means you might finally find the time to get things done. Mars connects with Uranus on the 8th, encouraging not only innovative thinking but also innovative action. (Think: Reese Witherspoon, who was born with this aspect in her natal chart, as Elle Woods in Legally Blonde.) Then on the 11th, Mercury conjoins Pluto—for the third and final time, previously on December 30th and January 28th—bringing passion, obsession and intensity to our communications.

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

12 aries

As busy as you’ve been at work or with personal projects over the last few weeks, your partner has been even busier. Big changes are in store for your whole family as one of you changes careers or goes back to a hybrid working environment, causing a shift in your values. Pick up a treat for the two of you to share on the 8th—something unexpected. What’s the point of working so much without any joy?

This week’s mantra: “Treat yourself.”

1 taurus

A family political argument threatens to go nuclear as Uranus connects with Mars on the 8th. Are you going to remain quiet or are you going to insert yourself into the comments of your aunt’s questionable Facebook post? Though staying out of it is probably the move, don’t be shy about speaking up if it was a direct attack on your identity. You’ve changed so much and it’s time that you’re recognized for it.

This week’s mantra: “Pick your battles.”

2 gemini

Though many consider you to be flaky or fleeting, the integrity of your long-term goals and beliefs is very important to you. As your ruler Mercury meets Pluto (for the third and final time this winter) on the 11th, you’re pushed to make a big decision over ethics. It hurts your wallet to turn down that freelance assignment, but your reputation remains intact. What’s the point of obsessing over the right choice when you know without a doubt what’s truly aligned?

This week’s mantra: “Trust your gut.”

3 cancer

Pushing yourself to speak up in the Zoom meeting or speak out at the parent-teacher conference takes you far this week. You’re probably articulating what a lot of people are already thinking but don’t have the courage to say. The PTO policy at your office is in fact ridiculous and your daughter should be allowed to make abstract art (even if the assignment was realism). As Mars connects with Uranus on the 8th, you find some allies in your cause.

This week’s mantra: “When I speak up, I find my people.”

4 leo

The thing you’ve missed the most from your pre-pandemic fitness routine is getting to show off your fab looks at IRL classes. No one power clashes in Lululemon like you do, Leo. Mars connects with Uranus on the 8th and you get a shoutout from your Zoom Pilates instructor for your fabulous leopard leggings. Finally, someone’s getting the memo again. This ego boost fuels your productivity all week.

This week’s mantra: “Of course I’m fabulous.”

5 virgo

As Mercury meets Pluto for the third and final time (previously on December 30th and January 28th), you forgive yourself for that awkward thing you said to or about your crush a few weeks ago. Like Miranda Hobbes shouting “I’m in a rom-com, Carrie!” on a recent episode of And Just Like That…, all of us get carried away sometimes. Instead of trying to control an uncontrollable situation, use your energy on creative and artistic obsessions that are ready to bloom.

This week’s mantra: “It’s OK to make mistakes.”

6 libra

If you’ve been struggling to find the funds for the home makeover you so desperately need, cash comes through in an unexpected way as Mars connects with Uranus on the 8th. Whether it’s a generous helping hand from building management or a cash boost from mom, you can finally get that couch you’ve always wanted and a new white noise machine. Relax in peace, far away from those noisy neighbors.

This week’s mantra: “When I relax, I find solutions.”

7 scorpio

Someone has a crush. As your ruler Mars connects with Uranus on the 8th, sparks are flying as you text with that hot date from Hinge. Aren’t you glad your friends pushed you to get back on the apps? You might crave being pursued, a fairytale kind of courtship, but really, you’re the one who sweeps people off their feet. Stop worrying about asking for too much. You can have your cake and eat it too.

This week’s mantra: “I get what I want.”

8 sagittarius

You’ve been pushing yourself hard at the gym, at the office and even at your book club—trying to get the most out of every opportunity. But just as quickly, you’re burning yourself out. What if you worked smarter instead of harder? As Mars connects with Uranus on the 8th, you get a stroke of genius about how to reorganize your daily routine to give yourself a break.

This week’s mantra: “Why stress when I can rest?”


You’re usually so diplomatic, especially when dealing with the people you work with, but on the 11th, as Mercury connects with Pluto in your sign, you unleash your salty side. This is a repeat transit from December 30th and January 28th —what did you leave unspoken then that is bubbling to the surface now? At this point, what do you have to lose by speaking your mind?

This week’s mantra: “I said what I said.”

10 aquarius

Everyone around you is speeding up, but your productivity improves when you slow down. Mercury, Venus and Mars are all in your unconscious sector, giving you constant reminders of everything out of your control. As Mercury meets up with Pluto on the 11th, you finally take a deep breath and let go of something that’s out of your hands.

This week’s mantra: “Let go and let it flow.”

11 pisces

Connections and community have been super important for you this month. As Mars connects with Uranus on the 8th, you upgrade a friend from work or school to your inner circle. You’re no longer just sharing assignments or complaining about your boss, you’re opening up about the real struggles of your lives. How can you bring more of your extended network into a tighter knit community?

This week’s mantra: “It’s never too late to make new friends.”
