And while public relations campaigns that make the world a better place are better than no one doing anything, at this point in the Aquarius solar journey it will do your heart well to instead give benevolently and anonymously.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You make an impression whether or not you consciously set out to do so. There's something to gain from being a bit more deliberate in this regard. You have excellent instincts worth putting some time and energy behind.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There are two minds within you to consider: the automatic self, which does a lot of the living, and the conscious self, which will need to be very clever indeed to lay the tracks that let the automatic self live optimally. <p>Updated: Sat Feb 16, 2019</p> 44ad03481eb7740070fd0470655c07d0 Thoughts on the Cancer Moon for 02/15/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/thoughts-on-the-cancer-moon Fri, 15 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Overthinking is a real waste of energy. You have to trust (and it's scientifically proven) that there are highly intelligent parts of your brain that are working on things when you're not aware of your thoughts &#8212; when you're asleep, zoning out, meditating or the like. The Cancer moon suggests we relax to facilitate those intuitive connections. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don't just ride the trends; you take the time to study and understand them. And you have what it takes to start a trend yourself. You're more influential than you think. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You're currently unable to see how you've erected a barrier to your own success, which is not a problem unique to you. It's a human thing. The view of an outsider will be invaluable to getting a clear sightline and a new plan. <p>Updated: Fri Feb 15, 2019</p> 74274ab4332fc72babf35e46e715dd85 Mars Takes Over Valentine's Day for 02/14/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/mars-takes-over-valentines-day Thu, 14 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>This Valentine's Day, an astrological ruckus swivels the spotlight from Venus, queen of hearts, and the usual star of the day, to Mars, the warrior prince with a new take. The Martian move into Taurus lends itself to a brand of passion that is, though rugged, still partial to lavish sensory indulgences. Visceral experience wins out over poetry.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Love really does require a sense of humor. When you bring that to the table, you can find the other person's quirks, gaps of knowledge and errors in approach to be a source of endearment and mirth. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The paradox of love is that it can at once feel comfortable and thrilling, right and dangerous, inevitable and yet completely up to you. Take a breath and luxuriate love's opposites. <p>Updated: Thu Feb 14, 2019</p> f60374211d07f2ef2c06ca4e2c02d16c Conjunction Continues for 02/13/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/conjunction-continues Wed, 13 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>It will take weeks for the fog of this Mars/Uranus conjunction to clear. In the meantime, when in doubt, check to make sure you're on purpose. If you don't know your purpose, step back and figure it out. Your purpose is something you must get right for the rest to work out. Hint: It has something to do with making life better for others. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Think of your offender as much younger than they are, infantile perhaps, because in some ways we are all immature, and indeed it is immaturity that has caused the rift. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The good opinion of others can be a seduction. The trick is to accept people's interest in you as a compliment, and yet not let their attention or opinion of you change how you think of yourself.<p>Updated: Wed Feb 13, 2019</p> dfac1c8c6bd6ec331f0e0dfda51e6d2f Mars Endangers Romance for 02/12/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/mars-endangers-romance Tue, 12 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Since romantic ideals have only been a part of human culture for around 250 years, it's quite possible there are those who wouldn't fall in love if they hadn't heard about it. What about you? Are you comparing a relationship to movie-level ideals? Mars heats up with an alignment to Uranus to suggest such comparisons can cause conflict. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're not going to change things by arguing with reality or fighting what's going on here. This is what's happening. Accept it, and then get to work building the new reality that renders this one obsolete.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Love's healing power is immeasurable. Though, because it also can't be bottled, it's rather easy to forget to take. You need love. Double your dosage.<p>Updated: Tue Feb 12, 2019</p> 8cba8612fb326ca17823578300754fad Mercury Takes On the Shadow for 02/11/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/mercury-takes-on-the-shadow Mon, 11 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Every human has a shadow side and possesses aspects of character that are tricky, to say the least. No one is immune, but some are more accepting of faults than others, even embracing and integrating them. Typically, this loveliness is indicative of an emotionally fortunate childhood, though Mercury in Pisces wants us all to give it a try.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). It's better to let off steam little by little than to let it build and eventually blow up at an inopportune time. The perfect partner in letting loose will come along tonight.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your life is full of gifts and blessings, so many that if someone off the street were to just step into your life, that person wouldn't be sure where to start the gratitude list. But you know where to start it. So go there, and be happy.<p>Updated: Mon Feb 11, 2019</p> ffd92b2fc84348c9df55812c58f2067e Mercury Enters Pisces for 02/10/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/mercury-enters-pisces-e9d9e Sun, 10 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>A distorted sense of scale can be a destructive force in the world. It's harmful to exaggerate or diminish the facts just to win an argument or make things fit into a particular worldview. The problem can be avoided through honesty, reason and a sincere desire to understand the true value of things. The new Mercurian emphasis on empathy will help.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You see when it's time to rebel. When the norms don't make sense, the popular opinion is clearly wrong and people are behaving badly en masse, nonconformity is a moral imperative.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When your loved ones get down and need encouragement, you have kind words to share. What are the words you give yourself, though? Are they anywhere near as kind? Can you shore up the difference?<p>Updated: Sun Feb 10, 2019</p> e79ad84ee766d59745678ce1adcfa1e4 Mercury's Bye-Bye Burst of Wonder for 02/09/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/mercurys-bye-bye-burst-of-wonder Sat, 09 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Whatever is between the earthly plane and the realm of angels, be it clouds or sea foam, spirals, sacred geometry, plasma, lightning, dirt, feathers, chutes or ladders... whatever it is, to glimpse it from this earthly plane sends a thrill, blankets us in awe. This last day of Mercury in Aquarius can be credited for the sudden burst of wonder. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Jealousy makes people behave uncharacteristically. It's not worth it to make someone jealous on purpose, and if anyone does this to you it's a red flag.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you can facilitate an experience for another person, you'll be thrilled for the opportunity to do so. Stay cognizant of this: You can invite experience but never provide it, as experience is a co-creation between host and guest. <p>Updated: Sat Feb 09, 2019</p> 9643c80c5dcd73d22dc9ded34cbaa1fa Jefferson and Venus Advise for 02/08/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/jefferson-and-venus-advise Fri, 08 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Thomas Jefferson suggested, "Do not bite at the bait of pleasure till you know there is no hook beneath it." What he failed to mention is that there's always a hook. Otherwise it wouldn't be bait. The trick is to figure out where it is and if it's worth the risk to eat around it. Given the lunar square to Venus, it will take skill to indulge and still remain free.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Certain things are in place. Life will change you for the better, whether you want it to or not. Also, there's nothing to be done about it, so you may as well just relax and take it all in. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Love somehow still sticks with you even when you give it away. In fact, the more you give, the more you have, and it becomes really hard to get rid of. <p>Updated: Fri Feb 08, 2019</p> 62e3b3a335be0fd41ed81afee375284b Venus Change in a Song for 02/07/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/venus-change-in-a-song Thu, 07 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>The adjustment to this Venus change could be summed up by the early '90s Haddaway song, "What is Love?" which follows up the query with a request, "Baby don't hurt me/don't hurt me/no more." The lyrical juxtaposition brings up a good point. You don't have to know what love is to know what it feels like or to fear its consequences. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You didn't want it or plan it. You never thought it really fit you... and yet here you are in this circumstance that seemed either to choose you or to land on you, depending on how you look at it. Make the most of it. This is a gift.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When the end is not in sight, it's good to keep it in mind. Maybe create a special vision or a symbol for it to use as motivation to keep going forward until you've completed the task. <p>Updated: Thu Feb 07, 2019</p> 74bfc8abbd41a8e4659d1873a9c495ab Porcine New Year's Resolutions for 02/06/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/porcine-new-years-resolutions Wed, 06 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>If you want a second crack at New Year's resolutions, this is it. The elevated consciousness of the Pisces moon in these early stages of the porcine era encourage you to create a sacred vision for the next 12 months. Without this purpose, it just won't turn out as well. Human nature has a way of corrupting unguided moments. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Scientific studies suggest that many humans rate their skills and traits as much better than they actually are. Then there's you, totally underplaying it all. Speak up! Too much modesty means everyone could lose out. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The power struggle is between two parts of you, one that's parental and one that's childlike. Both parts want what's good for you and what will make you happy, though each has an extremely different definition of those concepts. <p>Updated: Wed Feb 06, 2019</p> 3b2ba7e728abfad0f92a39f4093c6d4e Happy New Earth Pig Year! for 02/05/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/happy-new-earth-pig-year Tue, 05 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>According to myth, the Jade Emperor invited a number of animals to his party and the order in which they arrived became the order of the Chinese Zodiac. The pig was last because either she overslept or was busy rebuilding her house, depending on whom you believe. Nonetheless, her omen bodes well for a year of abundance and progress.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). City dwellers know that to drown out the noise everywhere, you have to listen to your own. White noise can help you sleep. Talk can comfort you. Beats can move you. Choose your sounds; choose your environment. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can tell when someone is being competitive with you, and unless you're actually in an official competition, there's no reason to let the race go on. Sidestep. Don't engage. <p>Updated: Tue Feb 05, 2019</p> 68d70d6073b4524415a019739c3ec25a Aquarius New Moon for 02/04/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/aquarius-new-moon-3dccd Mon, 04 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Lovers of '80s music may find it impossible to think of a new moon on Monday without also hearing Simon Le Bon of Duran Duran follow up with, "And a fire dance through the night." <span class="column--highlighted-text">This Monday moon is in the realm of Aquarius and is the signifier that tips off Lunar New Year</span>.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). The calls to action coming from the commercial sector will be nonstop &#8212; a nuisance, really. You'll tune most of them out, but then one thing grabs your attention, and for good reason. This is a fit. Yes, this one will benefit you greatly.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You take criticism without getting offended and apply it well. Do you have any idea how rare a quality this is? And it will get you noticed by people you can learn from.<p>Updated: Mon Feb 04, 2019</p> 3c72626fcf828f221b042f62b92d3b4c Planetary Proof of Love for 02/03/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/planetary-proof-of-love Sun, 03 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Love has many languages, definitions and types, its expression changing through a lifetime or even a day, as we'll learn with this Venus change. Venus in fiery Sagittarius featured passion, possibility and pursuit. But <span class="column--highlighted-text">in the weeks to come, love will be more defined by proof than anything else</span>. Without evidence, there is no love.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Though you can sometimes find it easy to derive joy from the small ordinary things, right now you're focused differently, so driven by your big goal that it will be constantly in mind, squeezing out all other considerations.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To measure the distance between where you are and where you want to be will be a recipe for discontent. Instead, you should determine the right direction, take a step and repeat.<p>Updated: Sun Feb 03, 2019</p> 783a1216af0ce97ca4ab2208459ce8cd The Groundhog and Venus for 02/02/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/02/19/the-groundhog-and-venus Sat, 02 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>The restless mood of Venus this Groundhog's Day suggests that Punxsutawney Phil, Seer of Seers, Sage of Sages, Prognosticator of Prognosticators and Weather Prophet Extraordinary may be too distracted by his personal life to deliver an accurate weather prediction. Maybe we'd all be better off sharing this love-before-work ethic today. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Hearing a little bit of a story is unsatisfying. You want the rest! You've time for it today, too. Your curiosity (rarer than you realize) will pave the way to learning interesting and even magical things. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You'll do as you wish. When it coincides with what others wish, great. When it doesn't, you won't worry too much about it. You're not put on this earth to please all people. <p>Updated: Sat Feb 02, 2019</p> cc24d2babc361beb93f23b1ab0ff5b2d Mars and Pluto Chime In for 02/01/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/01/19/mars-and-pluto-chime-in Fri, 01 Feb 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Some people appear to think highly of themselves though the bravado is a disguise for how they really feel &#8212; afraid, unworthy, inadequate. The kindhearted may see through this act and offer love and acceptance. And even though that alone can't change someone's self-worth, Mars and Pluto chime in saying, "It certainly couldn't hurt!" </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don't need to take the safe path. It's not scenic or more direct. It's not smoother really. The only redeeming thing about that path is that it's known. Take the unknown and less traveled path.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you like a person, you often like how they laugh, sound, look, smell, reason and more. But if even one of those things is off, it can impede the progress of the relationship.<p>Updated: Fri Feb 01, 2019</p> b8c2b5b0667fe5b5ecbe8c37dc22b338 Rare Saturn and Neptune Sextile for 01/31/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/01/19/rare-saturn-and-neptune-sextile Thu, 31 Jan 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Under this rare Saturn and Neptune position, much is possible through clear sight. Getting a vivid perspective requires a better vantage, a higher awareness. Realize that you're expecting to see something in particular, and that expectation disallows you to see clearly the thing that's really there. So do away with expectation, and then look again. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). While "I'll know it when I see it" is a fine enough guiding principle for a solo artist, groups need a more specific set of rules to go by. A good leader will think it over and spell it out.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Does it please you to know that someone is working hard to impress you? It's flattering, to say the least, although you must also realize that this has a lot to do with what the individual is projecting onto you. <p>Updated: Thu Jan 31, 2019</p> 580ced9ef73c4c1297203c2c1c76c46e Moon of Social Impact for 01/30/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/01/19/moon-of-social-impact Wed, 30 Jan 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>When you look back, there are characters that stand out as being highly influential in your life, though you wouldn't have guessed it at the time. And presently, there are people around you who are having more of an impact than you think, and you are influencing them more than you know, too. The Sagittarius moon drives this social swirl. </p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). There is a social adjustment to be made &#8212; an addition or subtraction to help you stay on the road of health. Pinpoint what needs to be done, make a plan and execute it. This won't take time so much as will.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Where the physical space is tight, you can make emotional space. Think: passengers on a plane who wear headphones. Where emotional space is tight, make physical space. <p>Updated: Wed Jan 30, 2019</p> b75c25f041ea2032d6ae4df24e4d811b Sun and Mercury Conjunction in Aquarius for 01/29/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/01/19/sun-and-mercury-conjunction-in-aquarius Tue, 29 Jan 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>In a show, entrances and exits are a big deal. Often they are applauded. Usually they happen in a manner that gives insight into a character. Today's big identity marker of a sun aligns with Mercury, master of comings and goings. Life is a stage and we can win applause with those entrances and exits. Make them count.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). There's so much to do. You're not sure if it's work or play, but you know it's fun, so who cares? Tonight: You'll find your way through what is, essentially, a maze. </p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you're not sticking to your personal rules &#8212; not erecting and enforcing personal boundaries &#8212; then it's possible you're unconsciously telling someone that it's OK for them to continue in a way that's not desirable to you. <p>Updated: Tue Jan 29, 2019</p> b6973a93d485031a49c4f08779d163a0 Moon Goes Emo for 01/28/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/horoscopes-by-holiday/01/19/moon-goes-emo Mon, 28 Jan 2019 00:00:00 -0800 <p>Moving through feelings isn't necessarily hard or easy; it's just necessary. Anyone who doesn't want to be stuck can use the emotional processing tool called the "Scorpio moon" to paddle on through. There's no great technique or secret way that makes it better. You just have to accept the emotion and let it play out. No feeling is inherently wrong or right.</p> <p>ARIES (March 21-April 19). Remember when you accidentally promised more than you could comfortably do and then felt pressured and harried? It's why you're careful to under-promise this week. This way, you'll leave plenty of room for yourself to over-deliver.</p> <p>TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you don't go looking for trouble, it won't go looking for you. This is a good way to live. And the crazy little knots of the past don't have to be undone. They're not a mess; they're a net, holding it all together.<p>Updated: Mon Jan 28, 2019</p>
