Your Daily Horoscope for Thursday, February 7
By Kelli Fox
March 21- April 19
Today it’s important to make an emotional connection with the people around you. Keep in mind that many people are feeling more sensitive now than usual — you included. So keep biting comments and snarky jokes to a minimum! You might just be poking fun, but someone else could get their feelings hurt. And if you’re the one who feels a little blue today, give yourself some space to sit with those emotions.
April 20-May 20
Welcome to a relaxed and relaxing day. Your internal transmitter is set to a lower frequency than usual. It feels wonderful just to hang out at home, or any place where you feel comfortable. If you have access to water, it’s a perfect day to go for a swim or to de-stress by a river or ocean. The gentle sound of the waves will soothe your soul at a deep level.
May 21-June 21
You might be most comfortable in an intellectual realm. But today, you’re thrust into the hazy realm of emotions. Perhaps someone close to you is feeling especially loving, or maybe they’re in a gloomy state of mind. Or maybe you’re the one who’s feeling things much more intensely than usual. Either way, don’t try to joke or rationalise these feelings away. Sit with them. Absorb them. Let them wash through you like water.
June 22-July 22
Hang out at home or with good friends, and just take it easy today. You’re feeling quite centred and relaxed, but your energy may be a bit low. Watching a movie might be the perfect way to spend a lazy afternoon or evening! Or call a long-distance friend and catch up on your lives. If they’re going through a tough time, you can lend a strong shoulder and a sympathetic ear.
July 23-August 22
Feelings of vulnerability could arise today. You’re known as the strong, courageous one among your friends or coworkers. But now, having to be bold or decisive could make you want to hide under the covers! Bolster your courage by reminding yourself that you have a lot of support to draw from. Lots of people adore you, and most are ready with a sympathetic ear if you need to talk out an issue.
August 23-September 22
Welcome to a passive, low-energy day. Your usual ability to focus may fly right out the window. You might find yourself daydreaming when you’re supposed to be working, or falling asleep when you’re supposed to be alert. Make time for a nap, or do something quiet like reading or watching a movie. Most of all, let your thoughts wander. Embrace any feelings or impressions that arise, no matter how silly they seem.
September 23-October 22
You’re in a sensitive mood today. Someone’s rude, crass or uncaring comment could get under your skin even more than usual. The good news is, you’re kindhearted enough to give people a lot of space and understanding, even if they behave in an unkind way. This is part of being a good leader: You lead by example, which inspires others to live up to the standard of behaviour you set.
October 23 – November 22
Seek out the company of someone you love and trust today. You need that close, affectionate connection and the other person probably does, too. A good talk or a warm hug is like a soothing balm for a troubled soul. The good news is, you’re feeling rather centred and serene. You can lend an ear or give excellent advice, but a simple smile is all you need in return.
November 23-December 20
Spiritual pursuits are highlighted today. Meditate, do yoga or visit a place of worship. This might be a church or temple, but it could also be your favourite spot in the woods or at the top of a mountain. You, perhaps more than most, derive great meaning from natural settings that afford you a broad perspective on the world and your own place in it. Seek this type of experience now.
December 21-January 19
If your energy is a bit low today, don’t push yourself to work as hard as you usually do. You often ignore your body’s cues in favour of sticking to your task list. But right now it’s a good idea to make space in your schedule for some pleasurable relaxation. Grab a friend or a family member and camp out on the couch. Watch a movie or read a good book. Enjoy some downtime.
January 20-February 18
Today you’re drawn to spiritual pursuits. Simple scientific explanations don’t satisfy you now. You want to look more deeply than that into life’s mysteries. Participate in activities that help you look beyond logic to the more magical side of life. It’s also a good day to visit any place of reverence or worship that’s meaningful to you, whether that’s a church, a temple or a mountaintop.
February 19-March 20
Don’t be surprised if you need extra sleep today. You certainly need extra time to daydream. If you work at a demanding job, you may find it difficult to concentrate. Your mind just keeps wandering! There’s no sense in fighting this, unless you absolutely have to get something concrete accomplished. But it would be better to shift meetings and other demands to another day, so you can let your thoughts roam.
