Is the quest for balance in your home and work life like Tantalus’s dangling carrot, Capricorn—no matter how close you get, it keeps moving further away? On Wednesday, February 13, manic Mars teams up with wrench-throwing Uranus in Aries and your fourth house of home and family. Surrender all illusion of control to a higher authority and trust that this is the path to peace. True, the s*** may hit the proverbial fan, but at least you can release a false hope of keeping it all together. While these two combustible planets meet up once every other year, they won’t reconnect here again for another 80 years. So if ever there was a day to try something radical, this is it! If you’re single or things are delightfully quiet on the Capricorn domestic front, use this transformative energy to make shifts in your living situation. On a whim, you might turn an unused guest room into your office or yoga space. Or you might decide it’s time to look for new digs. Normally your sign prefers to research and plan for eons, but this impulsive Mars-Uranus energy might just fire you up!
When you wake up on Thursday, the madcap emotions of the previous day might feel like a dream as your energy settles down and grounds you solidly in your passions. Mars waltzes out of your domesticity quarters and lights a bonfire in your amorous, glamorous, creative fifth house until March 31. Even if you haven’t found the fulcrum between workaholism and clearing out your Netflix queue, you’ll have more confidence that all things are indeed possible. These next six weeks will present opportunities to flirt, date, fall in love—or more deeply in love. You’ll be in your sensual groove, able to call up the perfect words or smoldering glance to befit any occasion. Single? Enjoy sowing as many wild oats as you care to. Let yourself be wooed by very different types. You can’t fake passion, so if you’re feeling it, follow it! Couples may take a big next step during this cycle. The fifth house rules fertility, and in the sign of the security-minded Bull, you may finally feel like it’s time. Leave plenty of time for spontaneous romancing—but don’t get attached to the outcome!
What serendipitous timing! Thursday, of course, is also Valentine’s Day, a perfect (if contrived) moment to celebrate ALL the loves in your life. With romantic Venus in your sign and lusty Mars in your zone d’amour, there’s no telling what you might get up to. If you’ve been secretly crushing on someone, this might be the moment you spill the tea. Chances are, they’ll be flattered and the feeling will be mutual. If not, you can abandon that fantasy and take your ardor elsewhere. Attached? If heart-shaped beds and Jacuzzis-for-twosies aren’t in the plans, (A) why not? and (B) come up with your own version of sexy and pull out the stops. Or have a sweet and steamy night in, perhaps making part of the evening doing a little research for a romantic getaway you can take later in the year.
