Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
Stop apologizing, Virgo! You don't have to keep saying "I'm sorry" every time you decline an unreasonable offer, bump into a chair or do something nice for yourself. Today compliant Chiron gets an assertiveness-training lesson from confident Mars. People are not as fragile as you think—and anyone who tried to guilt-trip you for saying no might not be the best candidate for your 2017 friendship roster. Unless you've truly made a mistake, there's nothing to atone for. Practice this new policy, and you'll experience some empowering shifts in your relationships in the days ahead.
Stuck in a rut? Your quest for stability could be happening at the expense of your creativity and pleasure. If you feel like the workhorse while everyone else is having fun, quit playing the martyr. Delegate some duties to others or find a way to turn those "burdensome" tasks into a fun team activity. How about offering an incentive or a prize—or even making it a competition between two teams where the winning group is rewarded with dinner or drinks? Remember, Virgo: Suffering is optional!
A little bit of luxury can lift your spirits—and today's sensual Libra moon gives you the green light to pamper yourself. Mind your budget and think quality over quantity. Even a small treat—like an almond croissant from the French patisserie, a gel manicure or a chic pair of earrings in more affordable brass—can stave off a big craving. Surround yourself with beauty. Meander through an art gallery after work, stroll through a public greenhouse, catch up on your favorite style blogs. Feed your senses and you'll nourish your soul—and download some inspiration for a crafty project of your own.
Get the year moving in the right direction by recommitting to resolutions you made at the beginning of 2017, especially those involving self-care. The Sun shifts into Aquarius, your sixth house of wellness, until February 18. For the past month you've been enjoying your share of naughty indulgences, but now you're longing to feel more vital again. Hop back on the wellness wagon with healthful meals, heart-pumping exercise and solid nights of sleep. Since there's no way around a busy work schedule, devote time to streamlining your systems and getting into an organized groove.
Soliciting friends for love advice—or any advice—is something you do regularly, Virgo, since your analytical sign appreciates constructive feedback. However, today's foggy moon-Neptune trine could leave you overwhelmed and confused if you reach out to too many people. Close the opinion polls and do some meditation and journaling instead. At the end of the day, you can't crowdsource the right choices for your personal life. Work on trusting yourself more—and allow life to get a little messy as you search for your answer. The "mistakes" you're avoiding could be crucial components in your learning process.
Your extroverted nature is on full display this Saturday as the moon and charming Venus align in your interpersonal houses. Conversations will be lively and stimulating and provide plenty of opportunities to flirt. Keep the clever banter coming, Virgo, but make sure you're also listening. Someone may be trying to communicate an important point, one you won't want to miss because you're crafting a clever comeback. Romantically, Saturday will be sublime—and the stars could serve a promising prospect from a dating app or even your friendship circle. Couple: Treat Saturday like an extended play date. Road trip, anyone? You're not one to wallow in your emotions, Virgo, but there comes a time when you do have to acknowledge them. Sunday's lunar energy can help you own up to the troubling issues—and stop numbing out with junk food, Cabernet or other crutches. Reach out to your supportive circle to get it all out in the open—and if you need a little extra guidance, ask for their recommendations on therapists, coaches or holistic healers. This isn't a sign of weakness: The higher you climb, the more stressful life becomes. It only makes sense to assemble advisers to help you with your ascent.
