Your horoscope for the week ahead: Seize this chance to improve — or stagnate | CBC Life

Must read

The beginning of this week will offer us a choice: improve or stagnate. If you’re hesitant to select the former, take a moment to consider the benefits that confronting challenges can bring. You could receive a push in the right direction when energetic Mars squares lucky Jupiter on Tuesday. When these planets clash, it’s often easier for us to see the power of our efforts and our ambitions tend to soar. Take advantage of this energy to begin building new habits that better align with your values. 

Our minds may be extra active on Wednesday, as three separate conjunctions between the sun, Mercury and Saturn take place in intuitive Pisces. Conjunctions occur when two planets meet up in the same degree, amplifying each other’s energies in the process. These aspects can help us make positive adjustments to our lives; however, if we ignore our opportunities for improvement, our problems will only become more apparent.

The first of Wednesday’s conjunctions will see the ego-ruling sun meet up with intellectual Mercury. It’s often easy for us to get led astray by our thoughts under this influence, so try to avoid looking too deep for meaning. If you allow yourself to get lost in weighing all the possibilities, you could find it challenging to make crucial decisions.

Ideas for self-improvement may come to mind when chatty Mercury conjuncts strict Saturn a few hours later. While this aspect can encourage us to reflect and find the correct path forward, it’s important to refrain from dwelling on our missed opportunities. Practising compassion for yourself and others will help ease any anxiety that arises.  

Finally, when the spirit-driving sun conjuncts structure-loving Saturn, seize the opportunity to step into your power and really celebrate where your talents have taken you. Others could also take note of your efforts during this aspect, and may tap you to take on more responsibilities at work or at home. Just be mindful of what you agree to so you can manage expectations.

Then, as the emotion-ruling moon wanes into her last quarter in blunt Sagittarius on Sunday, pay extra attention to how you engage with others. A poor choice of words could hinder your ability to succeed, especially as the moon goes on to square communicative Mercury. You may want to redirect your energy toward taking care of domestic matters and decluttering your space. 

Here is your horoscope for the week of Monday, February 26, 2024.


In the mood to take on a new challenge, Aries? Chatting with friends could give you the encouragement you need to get started, so don’t hesitate to confide in your social circle at the beginning of this week. Listening to the people you trust could also bring fresh ambitions into focus, inspiring you to expand your education and improve your skills. Come mid-week, you may start to feel a bit overwhelmed trying to juggle all of your responsibilities. Find calm by taking a step back to listen to your intuition and reflect on your physical needs. Slowing down will allow you to adjust your priorities so you can strike a better balance between work and play. 


Yearning for a getaway, Taurus? You’ll be in a prime position to start planning a trip with friends or family mid-week. Just know that if you’re serious about embarking on this adventure, you may have to take on the heavy lifting of organizing things. Use this as an invitation to design your dream vacation, then rally your loved ones to get on board with your idea. If you can follow through, you’ll be well on your way to making memories that last a lifetime. Then, later in the week, you could stumble across a few money-saving ideas that’ll help get you closer to your destination. Summon your financial savvy to scope out the best deals. 


Do you need to be right all the time, Gemini? Regardless of your romantic status, opening your mind to differing opinions can help you establish more flexibility in your relationships and even soften your heart. Keep this in mind this week, when you’ll have a chance to let go of old habits, adopt a new outlook and welcome more love into your life. Meanwhile, exciting developments could be on the horizon at work, though it’s important to note that these changes may impact your private life, too. Be sure to clearly communicate everything to your loved ones as you learn what your new routines might look like. 


Are you ready to rise to the occasion, Cancer? This week, you could feel inspired to take on a new project or collaboration at work that’ll better connect you with your peers and community. Just be sure to plan well and practise your pitch ahead of time, as you may need to rely on some outside assistance to help this venture succeed. Come mid-week, you might have an urge to add new skills to your repertoire or even find yourself mulling over a return to school. But before you take any big leaps, carve out some time to create a budget that’ll help you reach your goals. 


No person is an island, Leo. In fact, if you take a second to consider just how deeply entangled your actions, habits and finances are with the people around you, you could actually find yourself getting quite emotional. So this week, be sure to carve out time to really practise gratitude for your support system. This adjustment in attitude will be crucial, especially if you have specific goals that you’re hoping to chase. Use this moment to shed selfish ideals and work on becoming more self-sufficient. Then, you can focus on giving back to your community and repaying favours whenever possible.


Being honest about what you want can help you manifest your true desires, Virgo. So this week, do your best to avoid playing mind games with the people in your life. Remember: transparency is essential to creating harmony at work and in love. If you’re in a relationship, this energy could inspire you to strike up conversations about your shared responsibilities. Make an effort to receive criticism gracefully as you listen to your partner’s perspective. Meanwhile, single Virgos may feel encouraged to release a little control and welcome new people into their lives during this time. 


Are little problems getting under your skin lately, Libra? If you avoid addressing them head on, you could end up losing your patience with a loved one in a way you’ll regret. So at the start of this week, seize any chance you get to open up to others about any concerns you may be having. From there, you can focus on finding effective solutions together. Meanwhile, when it comes to your habits and routines, you may notice that what once worked no longer seems to carry the same oomph. Take some time to meditate on how you can work smarter and not harder. Prioritizing your loved ones and mental health will serve you well in the long run.


Does it feel like you’ve been stuck in a rut lately, Scorpio? Perhaps it’s time to really face your limitations and accept help from your loved ones to overcome them. This week, leaning on the people you trust has the potential to give you a particularly big leg up — and could encourage you to start looking on the bright side more often. Then, be sure to follow your artistic impulses toward the middle of the week, as nourishing your creative side could fuel your energy at work. It may even inspire you to begin chasing a fresh professional path. Have fun striking up conversations with people who support your ambitions.


Could your space use a little love right now, Sagittarius? This week, you may feel a particular sense of urgency to elevate your surroundings or make room for new memories to blossom, though figuring out where to start may prove difficult. Avoid getting overwhelmed by all the possibilities and take a moment to determine what you’d most like to change. You may need to adjust your budget to accommodate your desires or get creative with DIY projects and thrifting. But if you do your homework and remain wise with your resources, you’re sure to make some magic happen. 


Give yourself some grace, Capricorn. At the start of the week, you could find yourself reflecting on your recent efforts at self-improvement — and dwelling on times you’ve strayed from your path. If you’re able to work on forgiving yourself, you’ll have an easier time pushing forward. And once you’ve learned to truly accept your flaws, without punishing yourself for them, you’ll be able to see your progress from a fresh perspective. This weekend, you’ll be wise to watch your words around your loved ones, especially if old disputes happen to resurface. It’s crucial that you try to let go of the past so you can allow any emotional wounds to heal. 


What brings you a sense of security, Aquarius? This week, you’re called to really consider your emotional needs and how they inform the way you show up in your relationships. Now is also an ideal time to reflect on how your beliefs and passions have helped to shape your existing bonds. As you do, remember that practising vulnerability with others will be key to your evolution. Come the weekend, you may need to take a step back from your social sphere in order to clear your mind. Give yourself a moment before you respond to others — especially if you notice your emotions are running high. 


Are you living up to your full potential at work, Pisces? If you’ve been looking to level up professionally or pursue a more ambitious career path, you may finally feel empowered to start making waves early this week. This will be a beautiful moment to strategize how you can channel your past experience and accomplishments into future success. Don’t hesitate to think big; you’ve got what it takes to realize your dreams. Need a little push to get going? Discussing your ambitions with your nearest and dearest during this time could help to nurture your confidence and open new doors.
