The good news and the bad news are the same under this Scorpio moon opposition: Fear doesn't go away. It will always be there to protect you or lie to you, stop you from failing and also succeeding. In other words, fear will just keep doing its job. So, you keep doing yours, which has to do with learning when to heed, embrace or ignore fear.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Expectation determines satisfaction. But if you've never done a thing, how do you know what to expect? Having an open mind that's not too attached to any outcome takes maturity. Mature people have more fun!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your creativity isn't so much about what you're able to come up with on your own, rather it's the connections you make between things, what you choose and how you bring them together. Does that take the pressure off?
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don't worry about being authentic. It could be argued that it's not really "a thing" anyway. If not you, who else could you possibly be? Focus on being useful to those around you and your soul essence will naturally shine.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). The popular belief that habits take 21 days to establish has since been proven incorrect by social scientists who agree it takes much longer. The one you're trying to form will be worth the persistence. Also, it will get easier.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are certain loops of activity that bring you comfort, solace and a sense of being healthfully at home. Then there are the deadly boring loops you'd best interrupt right now, and much is aligning to help you with that.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You care enough to do the work, but you don't know which work to do. You're not sure which moves would be effective and neither do you know the order to put them in. Get instruction, even if you have to pay for it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Whoever gave you the idea that change should be easy and fun was perhaps trying to sell you something. Change will be a mixed bag. Relax. It's better when you expect the work without dreading it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You're a creative person trying to communicate about a need that goes beyond what words, images, music, tastes or anything you've experienced could possibly fulfill. This soul ache will be the source of much beauty.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It feels good to deliver something that people want. You weren't always able to assess what this might be. Acknowledge the fact you've tapped into something. This is just the beginning.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Black and white thinking may be useful in a few situations. But for 99% of this nuanced and colorful life, "always," "never" and other sweeping generalities simply are not going to serve you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Big, buttery biscuits have their time and place. However, today you'll take your indulgences in a different form, perhaps luxuriating in scrumptious, savory words or media that lands in the sweet spot of your appetite for drama.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A drop of ink can discolor the whole glass of water, but it won't do much to the ocean or the lake for that matter — even the bathtub will be fine. Just add some bubbles, think bigger and avoid people with outdated pens.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 13). Here comes the meaningful work — work that's measured in how far it can take you, also in how far you can take it. Where to stop will be an important thing to sense, as you'll be switching vehicles for the next leg of your journey. Your grateful heart and exemplary hosting skill will contribute to many happy occasions. Libra and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 30, 33, 44 and 11.
VALENTINE SPECIAL: LOVE STYLES: Voted "most likely to win at dating profiles," Capricorn brings the whole package to relationships. This is a well-rounded, something-for-everyone presentation for love, one that takes into account the responsibilities we have in relationships to care for and support each other while also acknowledging that love must be exciting and interesting to thrive. Capricorn will check every box. Aquarius is the poster child for agape love, which is having compassion for all mankind. To be in the presence of such an expansive heart is awe-inspiring. Because Aquarius is able to give in a selfless and unconditional way, relationships are secured in unity, and they are imbued with a feeling of significance, as though the hearts of the entire human race were at stake. And maybe they are. Pisces love is a depth of understanding that will not be duplicated anywhere else of the zodiac. The delusions of romance often have to do with the human tendency to cast people in roles, projecting onto them the identities we would prefer them to be instead of taking the time to know them as they really are. With deep empathy, Pisces elevates love, seeking to know who others are on each and every level and succeeding brilliantly with this soulful talent.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: The generosity of Robbie Williams is well-known to loved ones, charities and tabloids alike; the recent surprise birthday party he arranged made headlines. Such is in keeping with typical Aquarian values, which aim to uplift and unite people. It is notable that with upward of 77 million recordings sold, Williams is among the bestselling pop stars of all time.
