You left off the week with the Sun making a trine to Saturn, giving you the urge to think in revolutionary ways, given the sign is in Aquarius. However, this conjunction would make you feel drained as well, so resting was the best thing to do over the last few days. However, that is not necessary now. 

Early this week, Mars in Capricorn makes a trine to Uranus in Taurus on Tuesday, the 8th. This is a great day to act freely and be as independent as possible for your work and tasks. Starting group projects is not ideal as there is heavy energy around independence. However, be careful not to bend the rules too much as the urge will be there. 

Then on Friday, February 11th, Mercury and Pluto conjunct one another in Capricorn, which is a time to stand your ground, take control of your life, and never allow anyone to make you feel inferior. You will feel more in control, and this is also not a good day to do group projects as you will want to be in complete control of what you do. 

As you see, this is the best week to work independently. So let’s see what is in store for each of the signs this week. 

Aries – Even though Mercury is direct, the kinks from the retrograde affect you until it goes back to its station soon. That means you will be thinking about an old friend from college or even elementary or secondary school. You may have the urge to contact them, or you may find them as a connection suggestion on LinkedIn. Perhaps they may be the ones to reach out to you out of the blue. 

Taurus – You may still have issues that have to do with your home, but you will have a much easier time handling the situation. You will have the energy and motivation to deal with the issues at home and not impede your productivity which is something you will be proud of at the end of the week. 

Gemini – You may have thoughts about starting a side hustle that has to do with your hobby. Or, you may develop a hobby this week and may end up thinking of starting a side hustle that has to do with it because you see there is potential for it to work for you and make money from it. 

Cancer – You will want to focus on your physical activity this week as you may find that you don’t have the energy to handle your work in addition to your family and home responsibilities as well as you could. Your lack of energy is affecting your productivity. The ideal thing to do is increase your physical activity, such as ensuring you take that morning walk before work. 

Leo – If your partner or close friends feel that you are not spending enough time with them because of focusing on your work too much, perhaps you will need to make sure that you spend some time with them. That means you will need to adjust your schedule so you can do that. 

Virgo – The energies surrounding you looking into your debts and taxes and reviewing them are heavy this week. If there are also debts, you may want to find ways to consolidate them if necessary. Tax time is still some time away, but that time will come closer before you know it. You are thorough by nature, and you do not want that time to pass you by. That is why you want to ensure that you take care of this now. 

Libra – You have the need now to expand your knowledge. You know a lot in your field, but you have the urge to expand it, and taking a course or two on the side is a good idea. Therefore, this is a good week for looking for new classes to take. 

Scorpio – How are your leadership skills? This is something that you may want to look into heavily and advance in as well. It does not matter whether you are a manager, employee, business owner, or CEO. Everyone needs to have good leadership skills, and this is a good week for you to evaluate yours and see what you can improve. 

Sagittarius – You might find yourself focusing on your struggles, whether work-related or personal. You may find that taking some time to volunteer or donate to a vital cause will shift your perspective. You know that everyone has struggles, and yours aren’t unique. 

Capricorn – As the Sun trines your ruler and since you have heavy energies in the Twelfth House, this is an excellent week to do some shadow work. It is never fun or easy, but necessary. Especially if you feel it is hurting your productivity, personal or professional. 

Aquarius – Since you have been the focus as the Sun is in your sign, you probably wonder how you can become more of a well-rounded person. This self-reflection is good because it will help you, in the end, achieve the goals that you want to achieve. You may also want to get more fit and healthy if you feel that you are not in the best shape in those areas. 

Pisces – Money and budgeting have been a challenge over the last while. The best thing you can do this week is to set some budgeting goals and make them realistic. That means you may have to adjust your lifestyle somewhat. This means you may have to dine out less and eat at home more often to save money, for example. This is an excellent week to refresh yourself on budgeting. 

Next week, some critical transits happen, such as Mercury heading into its exalted sign, Aquarius, and the Sun moving into Pisces. Therefore, the spotlight shifts over to Pisces!
