Rockstar astrologer Jennifer Racioppi is here for your weekly celestial wisdom—with a wellness twist. No matter what your sun sign is (or rising sign, or moon sign...), here's how you can align with the stars to make your best love, career, fitness, food, and self-care choices for the next seven days.

Monday, February 5

With the sun at 17 degrees of Aquarius today (in between Mercury, the planet of communication, and Venus, the planet of love and beauty), fiercely step into your truth. These three celestial bodies traveling in the sign of the water bearer, a sign related to progressive ideals, ask you to honor your most authentic values. Do not cling to the status quo. Lead with your truth, and don't be afraid to disrupt mediocre standards.

Tuesday, February 6

Today lovely Venus makes a dazzling connection to Uranus, the planet of surprises. This luscious combination could help you smash your limits when it comes to working out or going after your ideal goal. (Something big may just be brewing.) Stay in your conviction and work with determination. Also, notice synchronicities: Pay attention to those you meet, invitations you receive, or brilliant ideas you have. Today things happen for a reason.

Wednesday, February 7

Today marks the halfway point between two massive eclipses. The total lunar blood supermoon eclipse in Leo on January 31 and the upcoming solar eclipse in Aquarius on February 15. This waning quarter moon happens with the moon in Scorpio, a sign that probes beneath the surface. As the moon wanes back to new again, it asks you to release what no longer serves you. What do you need to release today? Let. It. Go. Say goodbye. The good news is the moon meets up with good luck Jupiter today, helping you release with happiness.

Thursday, February 8

The waning moon moves into freedom-loving Sagittarius at 8:53 a.m. EST. With La Luna in the sign of the archer, channel your inner Gal Gadot and step into your Wonder Woman alter ego—aiming precisely at your bull's-eye. But watch out for anger, especially as the moon inches her way towards Mars tonight. If you feel rage or disappointment, channel it productively. As positive psychology expert Tal Ben-Shahar, PhD, says "emotions have no morality, but actions do." Honor your emotions without taking them out on anyone else.

Friday, February 9

The moon continues to travel through Sagittarius all day today, making a supportive sextile to Mercury in Aquarius. Because of this, your ideas could catch fire, so please do think positive thoughts. Focus on what you wish to create not what you lack. Appreciate the magic in your life, then dare to create even more. When it comes to working out today, you may wish to do so with mantras, repeating positive affirmations to yourself. Sweating your prayers proves rather powerful now. Think (and say) nice things as you do.

Saturday, February 10

Netflix and chill, anyone? It's Saturday—maybe you want to give yourself a day off? With this week bookended with two powerful eclipses, carving out time to digest life remains non-negotiable. Let your intuition guide you today and try not to follow a rigid plan. Allowing yourself some freedom will help you to relax so you can let go and hear your inner voice. Give yourself the gift of space. It might be just what the doctor ordered.

Sunday, February 11

Now that Venus exited heady Aquarius and entered into luscious Pisces (a sign she loves and will travel in until March 6), it's time to settle into your meditation practice. Don't be surprised if the quality of your meditation practice improves. Not meditating? Now's the time to start. Mindfulness meditation has so many scientifically proven benefits, so try it out. Check out some guided meditations and experiment with what feels right for you.
