Who doesn’t love a long, luxurious savasana? (Oh yeah, me—when I’m feeling anxious.) According to astrologer Jennifer Racioppi, it’s extra worth it to stick it out at the end of class on Thursday, because the best (cosmic) way to boost boo time on Valentine’s Day is by taking it slow.
Monday, February 11
The waxing moon, moving through luscious Taurus, asks you to keep a close on eye on what feels pleasurable to you. However, Venus, Taurus’ ruler, currently travels in the sign of practical Capricorn, meaning what might feel most pleasurable probably dovetails as responsible, too. Yes, getting things done will feel sexy today.
What might feel most pleasurable probably dovetails as responsible, too. Yes, getting things done will feel sexy today.
So, get out your to-do list and be sure to check things off. Trust your instincts. With Venus ruling the moon, and simultaneously making a harmonious angle to the moon, today requires you to lead with your fierce and wild feminine side.

Today marks the halfway point between the last new moon in Aquarius and the upcoming full moon in Virgo. The waxing quarter moon, happening at 23 degrees of Taurus, squares the sun (aka makes a sharp angle) at 23 degrees of Aquarius—translation: it’s a good time to reflect on intentions set at the previous new moon. Check in. How are things progressing? Are your thoughts, words, and actions aligned with what you say you want? If not, how can you make necessary adjustments? The quarter moon perfects at 5:27 p.m. Eastern. See curveballs as learning opportunities and lean into a growth mindset. With Mars, the planet of action, simultaneously conjoining Uranus (the planet of revolution), witness your emotions without letting them take over. Things can unnecessarily become explosive. Stay grounded and don’t sweat the small stuff.

At 1:20 a.m. Eastern, Mars and Uranus officially conjoin. This cosmic combination can express itself via a range of possibilities. On the high side, it commands change, asking for you to integrate the lessons you’ve learned over the last eight years as they relate to owning your freedom. On the low side, this aspect can unleash aggressive and explosive behavior.
Go slow. Stay out of people’s way. If someone wants to use you as a punching bag, duck (and run). It’s not the day to fight back.
While revolutionary in nature, in an unrefined sense it can also become a temper tantrum. So, stay mindful and take extra care today. Go slow. Stay out of people’s way. If someone wants to use you as a punching bag, duck (and run). It’s not the day to fight back. Instead, get a great workout in, stay committed to your spiritual mission, and channel your energy wisely.

Happy Valentine’s Day! With Mars, the planet of action, leaving its home domain of Aries today—a sign it’s traveled in all year so far—for Taurus, the cosmos asks you to slow down. Enjoy a sensual bite of chocolate, that gluten-free brownie you’ve been dreaming about, or something savory and oh so satisfying. Consider buying your loved ones (or yourself) flowers, too. Food and flowers are not your thing? Consider a slow flow yoga class with a long savasana at the end, especially with a teacher who uses essential oils. Mars in Taurus, a transit that will last until March 31, asks for a slower pace. Given that Mercury is getting closer and closer to its retrograde shadow, now’s the time to focus on sensual embodiment, not speed.
Friday, February 15
With Valentine’s day giving way to Friday, and the moon waxing gibbous in Cancer (its home sign) pay attention to your heart. Give yourself the space you need to feel what’s happening for you. Whether that’s explosive love and excitement, deep grief and pain, or something between the two, take a moment and be present with it.

Cancer, an emotional, cardinal water sign asks for honesty. So, tune into your emotions, and let them be! As we settle into the remaining weeks of winter, the real work begins. It’s time to make the most of the dark season. Focus on establishing and maintaining a healthy cold weather groove. Transformation looms.
Saturday, February 16
Venus in Capricorn makes an auspicious connection to Neptune early tomorrow morning—so to tap into this luscious connection today. Consider booking yourself a massage or something sensually indulgent. Music and theater bode well under this aspect too, so if there’s a play or a concert you want to check out, certainly prioritize it. Make time for play. Nurture and nourish yourself. Next week brings tremendous change, so rest and recharge while you can.
Sunday, February 17
Tomorrow is a blockbuster day in astrology for various reasons—making it critical that you prep today. Reflect on all that you’ve learned since January 20 when the sun began its journey in Aquarius. (Tomorrow it moves into Pisces.) With Venus inching incredibly close to Saturn, the goddess of love asks for you to be both stoic and diligent when it comes to responsibility. You can’t go wrong with honesty. There’s no need to exaggerate anything. Stay in integrity. Tomorrow ushers a whole new astrological chapter. Get ready as the winds of change blow.
