The adjustment to this Venus change could be summed up by the early ‘90s Haddaway song, “What is Love?” which follows up the query with a request, “Baby don’t hurt me/don’t hurt me/no more.” The lyrical juxtaposition brings up a good point. You don’t have to know what love is to know what it feels like or to fear its consequences.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 7). You know many sides of love, yet you’ll get a new emotional vocabulary this year as love takes new forms and produces different kinds of joy. More features of this solar return: a family addition, a strange series of events that answers one of your oldest questions and a style upgrade that changes your daily routine. Capricorn and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 20, 24, 4 and 11.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You didn’t want it or plan it. You never thought it really fit you... and yet here you are in this circumstance that seemed either to choose you or to land on you, depending on how you look at it. Make the most of it. This is a gift.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When the end is not in sight, it’s good to keep it in mind. Maybe create a special vision or a symbol for it to use as motivation to keep going forward until you’ve completed the task.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). That species of pride called “arrogance” invokes a particularly negative reaction from you today. Does it calm you to know the perpetrator is coming from a place of extreme insecurity?

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Now you look back on some things that happened with a very different opinion than you had when it was all going down. This is proof that you’re always growing and evolving. You refuse to get stuck.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Some things are simply not worth doing. But which ones? You can’t learn which ones from a book or any other media, or even from your best friends. Only your heart can tell you what’s worth doing and what’s not.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). To prepare for today’s social demands, it will help if you decide beforehand what you want to talk about. Having good topics on the ready will allow you to relax, them to relax, and a productive communication to ensue.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have to ask, “Am I going the wrong direction entirely?” Maybe there’s a better way. Toy around. Think creatively. Tease solutions out with good questions. What about leverage? What about approaching from another angle?

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Maybe there is no a scenario in which you won’t be criticized for the choice you make. So you may as well do what your heart says is right so at least you can be on your own side.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Better organization will improve your relationships. How? It will allow you to carve out the right sort of time for the other person and to spend it doing the things that really matter to you both.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). One way your loved ones can make your life easier and better is by making the effort to show up strong and mix well with your other loved ones. Anyone who causes you problems in this regard is not being very loving.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). One of your projects seems to be dragging on forever and you may even fantasize about abandoning it, but this is no time to lose heart. You’re almost there — really! Rest if you have to, but don’t give up.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). While no one can obtain talents they don’t naturally possess, obtaining new skills is a different story entirely. You can do so much when you put your mind to it. What matters now is what’s worthy of your mind.
