Weekly Horoscope: Things Get Intense

February 24 – March 1, 2020

There’s a big focus on both the dreamy sign of Pisces and the go-getter, ambitious sign of Capricorn. Thus, this week we’ll tie up loose ends and find closure—with an emphasis on goals, ambitions, and those in authority.

On Monday, the sun (planet of ego) aspects feisty Mars (planet of aggression) in Capricorn, which can encourage combining imagination and practical wisdom to create something unique. And insights into a situation can make responding easier.

On Tuesday, the sun ties in with Mercury (planet of communication)—which in turn also combines with Mars—encouraging further reflection and constructive planning. Remember to be careful with contracts though: Mercury is still in retrograde!

Feelings could intensify on Friday as Venus (planet of love) forges an awkward angle with Pluto (planet of transformation). If you want something, you could go out of your way to get it.

On the same day, thoughtful Mercury aligns with electric Uranus (planet of change), which could bring brilliant ideas into the mix. If you need a solution, it could arise out of the blue. Just be ready to act on it.

This week is about giving more in order to receive more back, Leo. Where work is concerned, this could bring a whole bunch of positive benefits in the workspace.
