Happy birthday to all you Aquarians celebrating your birthdays today. I want to explain something about you later-born Aquarians. Tomorrow the sun travels to Pisces. Later-born Aquarians are cusp babies. I am a cusp baby, born Aug. 20. I read both Leo and Virgo. If your birthday falls within three or four days of a change of signs by the sun, also read your neighboring sign—in your case, Pisces as well as Aquarius. Meanwhile, Mars, the sun and Mercury take up residence in your space of values and earned income this week.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
If you are an early-born Pisces, born close to the 17th, you are known as a cusp baby. You were born so close to Aquarius that you should read Aquarius as well as Pisces.

It is time for you to decide what your next move should be. Let go of whatever is not working. Make room for the new. Enjoy Presidents’ Day on Monday.
