Your Weekly Horoscope for February 21, 2021
See what the planets have to say about this powerful, romantic week that culminates with a change-making full moon.
As February winds down and we wade even further into Pisces season, you can expect your appetite for romance and tendency to get in your feelings to ramp up. After all, not only has the sun slipped out of science-minded, intellectual air sign Aquarius and into dreamy, escapist water sign Pisces but this week, Venus, the planet of romance, will follow.
But first, on Wednesday, February 24, go-getter Mars in Taurus will form a positive trine to transformative Pluto in Capricorn, making this a powerful day for taking the reins on a major project, putting your big-picture agenda forward, and stepping into the spotlight in a way that supports your long-term goals. By harmonizing with one another, the planet of action and the planet of renewal and rebirth set the stage for impressing people you respect and getting ahead by collaborating with others.
Then, on Thursday, February 25, romantic Venus moves into Pisces, where it will be in its "exalted" position until Sunday, March 21. When a planet is exalted, it can reach its highest potential, and being that Venus is the planet of love, beauty, and money, you can expect this upcoming period to be primed for sharing your emotions in relationships, trying a hot new look, strengthening your self-worth, and bolstering your security in a way that aligns with your values.
The same day, the confident sun in Pisces forms a friendly sextile to rebellious Uranus in Taurus, amplifying our artistic impulses, interest in science and technology, and curiosity. You might be empowered to shake up your typical routine by trying something new or creative.
And the week closes out on Saturday, February 27 with a full moon in perfectionistic, thoughtful, service-oriented Virgo, forming a harmonious trine to Uranus that could lead to emotional reality checks. It could be time to pinpoint then detox yourself from entanglements that aren't supporting your growth.

(Pro tip: Be sure to read your rising sign/ascendant, aka your social personality, if you know that, too. If not, consider getting a natal chart reading to find out.)
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Your weekly highlights: Love ❤️ and Wellness 🍏
Thanks to romantic Venus moving through your twelfth house of spirituality from Thursday, February 25 to Sunday, March 21, you might be less inclined to share all the details of your love life with friends or loved ones. Being a bit more private — even secretive — now could lend itself to getting even closer with your sweetheart sans outside influences, if you're attached, or gaining more clarity around what you want out of your romantic partnerships if you're single. And around Saturday, February 27, when the full moon is in your sixth house of wellness and daily routine, you could be ready to call it quits on any less than angelic habits you've been hanging onto that you know are working against your big-picture health goals. Taking ownership and being clear on the exact details you want to tweak can help you get on track.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Your weekly highlights: Creativity 🎨 and Sex 🔥
Make sure to set aside time to connect with friends or colleagues on Thursday, February 25 when the confident sun in your eleventh house of networking forms a friendly sextile to rebellious Uranus in your sign. You'll be fired up to brainstorm and pursue truly inventive ideas as a team, and interaction with others could offer you helpful insight into your personal goals now. And around Saturday, February 27 when the full moon is in your fifth house of romance, you'll feel a pressing need to infuse your daily grind with more playfulness and passion. Hitting pause on work to do something spontaneous and pleasurable (such as spend the afternoon getting cozy with a new sex toy or planning an impromptu night in an Airbnb) can send sparks flying — and help you prioritize similarly rejuvenating breaks in the future.

You could feel like it's easier to pitch your ideas as well as connect and collaborate with colleagues, thanks to this sweet, positive influence. And around February 27 when the full moon falls in your fourth house of home life, you could be feeling aggravated that work has eclipsed your ability to take care of your personal needs lately. The good news is that this moment is perfect for meditating on the areas of life that could use more balance — and how you can best achieve that. Then, you can think about any changes you make as showing yourself some well-deserved love.

Consider pouring what you're feeling into your favorite creative outlet or having a heart-to-heart with your S.O. or a loved one. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable and exploring why you're feeling what you're feeling with someone special could bolster a magical sense of connection. Around February 27, when the full moon falls in your third house of communication, you could be so busy and overwhelmed with to-dos, emails to respond to, and deadlines to hit that you're tempted to throw in the towel and go back to bed. Instead, you'll want to use this as an opportunity to get clear on your priorities. And because the moon forms a harmonizing trine to game-changer Uranus in your eleventh house of networking, consider leaning on friends or colleagues to share the load.

Whether you're with your soul mate, looking for one, or interested in exploring your connection to yourself now, experimenting with new ways to understand yourself and others more (think: reading more about astrology, meditating, going deeper in therapy) can be super-satisfying. And around Saturday, February 27, when the full moon falls in your second house of income, you could be reflecting on how you've been bringing your talents to the table to bring in cash and advance your career.

But know that you might need solid time to rest and recharge in order to care for your mental and emotional well-being around Saturday, February 27 when the full moon falls in your twelfth house of spirituality. This can be especially challenging for you, Libra, given that you tend to want to please your nearest and dearest by making yourself available and amenable 24/7, but it's an opportunity to really listen to and trust your instincts and address your needs. By doing so, you can avoid burnout and later connect with your VIPs in a way that feels more satisfying.
