Your daily horoscopes for Monday February 5, 2024

Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Hibernation is not an option as social butterfly Mercury shifts into Aquarius and your eleventh house of group activity, giving your social life an energetic infusion until February 23. Instead of going it alone, tap into the power of the collective. Group projects pick up steam, though you may be surprised by who shows up as an ideal collaborator. The eleventh house rules humanitarian efforts: What can you do to make the world a better place? Let other people’s future-forward visions educate and enliven you, then team up in the name of change. This is an excellent time for networking and online ventures, so use social media to spread your message.

Taurus Daily horoscope

Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Failure is not an option—nor is it a topic you’ll even allow to enter the conversation. Communicator Mercury zips into Aquarius and your tenth house of status and success, giving you a one-track mind until February 23. Keep a sharp eye on those goals, Taurus. A diligent attitude will carry the day, and your greatest inspiration may come from staying glued to your desk for an extra hour or two. Call up a mentor and get some quality time on the schedule. The influence of an experienced person could really help you get ahead or clarify your path. Stay alert for a leadership opportunity and, if you’re job-hunting, get your resume and LinkedIn current.

Gemini Daily horoscope

Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Did you really just say that, Gemini? An unfiltered cycle begins today as expressive Mercury enters Aquarius, your ninth house of full-throttle honesty. Until February 23, you won’t be holding back. Careful: You could be a bit TOO blunt or tactless at times, offending people with your candor. Channel your energy into living your truth—which may require you to broaden your horizons, especially if you’ve been playing small. A life-changing trip or a daring risk could open your mind in important new ways. Keep asking: What else is possible?

Cancer Daily horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Be careful what you wish for, Cancer. Communicator Mercury blazes into Aquarius, activating your eighth house of soul-merging and sexual connection until February 23. While your sensual sign can get swept away by romantic illusions, that can be a hindrance to lasting love. In truth, everyone has issues, and Mercury in this psychological zone of your chart helps you accept that. During this period, seek out ways to be more vulnerable and to heal from old wounds. You might benefit from therapy since mindful Mercury helps you rapidly process a painful situation from your past.

Leo Daily horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Choose compromise over competition, Leo, at least for the next few weeks. Interactive Mercury logs into Aquarius, energizing your relationship house until February 23. While you’re in cooperative spirits, use this sweet-talking cycle to restore balance and get back in sync with important people. Put agreements in writing to leave nothing vague. Now is the time to hold people (including yourself) accountable for what they promise. Unsure of where you stand in a certain alliance? Listen carefully and ask questions—this is no time for assumptions.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Analyze this! Your thoughts may be in overdrive as mental Mercury logs into Aquarius and your systematic sixth house until February 23. Focus on anything that requires well-considered opinions and attention to detail. This is a great time for devising practical solutions, whether you reorganize an area of your home or streamline your work process. Since Aquarius loves tech, try out apps and AI features. Find ways to get to the gym and sweat out stress. With all this cerebral action, you need to be less in your head and more in your body.

Libra Daily horoscope

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Modesty is overrated, Libra, so let your self-confidence soars. As charming Mercury zips into Aquarius and your expressive fifth house until February 23, your ability to woo with words will be stronger than ever. There’s nothing wrong with plainly stating your desires, especially in love. Don’t play small or, worse, do the “humblebrag” routine. Your faith in yourself is well deserved. While there could be fireworks during this theatrical transit, you’ll also enjoy flirtatious banter just for the fun of it. Your emotions are colorful and dramatic now, so remind yourself not to take things quite too personally. Channel your intensity into a creative outlet and you could wind up making a masterpiece.

Scorpio Daily horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Make time to reconnect with your roots, Scorpio. From now until February 23, curious Mercury is spinning through Aquarius, activating your fourth house of home and family. Pore over old photos, take an ancestry DNA test or add comfy new touches to your decor. Make it a priority to nurture your most cherished ties with regular (or reinvigorated) communication. Don’t worry about how much time has passed—just pick up wherever you are, and you’ll fill each other in on the stuff that matters. Women in particular can play an important role. Be receptive to advice from the savvy sisterhood.

Sagittarius Daily horoscope

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Good luck holding back your thoughts, Archer. With communicative Mercury zooming into Aquarius and your chatty third house until February 23, your colorful commentary will be more vibrant than ever. Take full advantage of this talkative transit by scheduling important pitches and brainstorming sessions—or maybe starting up your own podcast. If you need to negotiate, diplomacy and grace will be your best assets. Find an outlet for all this mental stimulation, perhaps in a class or DIY project. Since the third house rules local action, go take a peek at neighborhood events, get a library card or visit a city council meeting. You never know what kindred spirits you’ll meet.

Capricorn Daily horoscope

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Buckle down, Capricorn. Social Mercury leaves your sign after a three-week stay and flits onto Aquarius and your security-seeking second house. Between now and February 23, turn your attention back to the mundane matters you’ve been ignoring since the beginning of the year. Fortunately, with the messenger planet here, you have added motivation to prioritize stability. Repair a work relationship that’s on shaky ground. Revamp your budget so that you can plug any financial leaks and not end up in a tight spot again. Align your self-esteem with your paycheck. When you believe in yourself, it shows—and it will impact the level of respect you get from colleagues and clients.

Aquarius Daily horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Grab the talking stick, Aquarius, and don’t let go. With clever Mercury settling into your sign until February 23, you’ll be spilling over with epiphanies that you want to share with anyone who’ll watch your TikToks or lend you their ears. Think carefully about your personal agenda and how you can move it forward. And don’t worry that you’ll seem “selfish.” After all, if you don’t express your most cherished goals and passions, how will they ever manifest? Make your dreams a top priority, even if that means declining a coffee run with a coworker or missing a couple social engagements. Your singular focus will pay off three weeks from now.

Pisces Daily horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Monday February 5

Easy does it, Pisces. Buzzy Mercury downshifts today, heading into Aquarius and your sensitive and soulful twelfth house until February 23. During this mindful period, you may need more downtime and solitude. It’s not that you don’t want to be social; it’s just that your psyche needs some space. Carve out time to rest, watch movies or meditate. Listening to dreamy music or going dancing can help move stuck feelings through your system. If an old hurt is eating you up inside, work with a therapist or healer to help release its grip. Set your internal compass for forgiveness rather than continuing to suffer over the past.
