Stargazer Weekly 2/17-23

Pisces time… Welcome to the Life Aquatic…

WEEKLY FORECAST:

 A string of aspects occurs this week while Mercury enters shadow, all of which will be revisited in March then again in early April, suggesting the next few days are the opening act of a work in progress that extends over the next eight weeks. Recurring aspects include links to Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto and the North Node – all framing the upcoming Mercury retrograde phase and playing integral roles in the storyline unfolding. It may initially feel like an unravelling, of course, but it is so that all the component parts can be reassembled in better way further down the line and with a refreshed perspective. 

Neptune is the star of this show, so pay particular attention to events, insights and even premonitions that arise around Tuesday as these will resonate significantly when Mercury goes direct around March 28th. Clarity is likely to be in short supply, but creativity and inspiration flow abundantly. If you are psychic, empathic or suggestible, this could be an off the charts period for you! This combination can also incline living in a fools paradise, sustaining an illusion that everything is okey-dokey, despite the glaring signals that they aren’t, and this caveat should equally remain present in the thought process. The overall atmosphere is harmonious, so make the best of it, even if certain matters seem to come to a standstill.

The Earth element remains strong and is anchored by the Full Moon in Virgo on the 19th. The tone is pragmatic and motivated to attainment, efficiency and overall material growth or security. Particularly where Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn have caused concern or revealed vulnerabilities to the overall structure during the last several weeks, new solutions can be found to reconcile persistent issues. Meanwhile, if Venus encounters the same perils and circumstances still appear bleak – this is an indication that certain topics still require priority status and that a greater effort should be made towards their reconciliation. 

The way through is a steady and concentrated approach towards the resolution of a problem once and for all and for the long run. Pluto has pointed to (or rather stabbed at!) this matter and generated incredible upheaval in this area for years, now Saturn requires it be dealt with, and to do so requires consistency and discipline. Neptune’s influence here indicates the potential to make a sacrifice, the ability to surrender material or superficial considerations to engage a spiritual perspective that alleviates some of the pain points associated with undertaking the hard work Saturn requires at this time. 

How things appear now is far detached from the outcome that is revealed in two months, though since the results will probably exceed the expectations you currently have, what occurs between now and then can only provide an upside. This is a very positive week to attend to pressing matters, business or otherwise, (even if results come in a bit later) and plant seeds for what you would like to see manifest in about 2 months. By the time Mercury rights it’s course, Venus will be joining in the conversation from Pisces and these matters will come together effortlessly.   

WEEKLY HOROSCOPES:

ARIES March 20 – April 19

The fruits of your labor begin to ripen this week as several productive developments occur on the career and work fronts. A project that comes to completion likely generates positive financial returns and a raise or salary increase could be the reward for your recent efforts. Where you have worked through difficulties and overcome substantial obstacles, compensation is on the way. Recognition for your achievement leads to professional progress and the attainment of your long range goals. It you are less than satisfied with the results this period delivers, it could signal it’s time to get back to the drawing board and recalibrate your trajectory towards your objectives.

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

TAURUS April 20 – May 20

Your vision for the future continues to come into focus and clarifying your goals helps you to attain them over the course of time. Connecting with friends and those who might share your vision of things can be incredibly productive, as conversations stimulate ideas and insights that progress a cherished hope or dream. This will be a work in progress through early April, but the inspiration you tap into this week has a substantial influence throughout this period, so pay attention to your instincts and serendipities. The Full Moon fires your passions – a love relationship or creative project harmonizes with your hearts desires.

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

GEMINI May 21 – June 20

Professionally this is a highly productive period with this week revealing major clues about the themes you’ll be dealing with over the next 8 weeks. Although the next two months will see you calibrating and then recalibrating your objectives, a conversation or decision initiated this week is crucial to the result you achieve by the beginning of April, so be attentive and deliberate in all your undertakings right now. Your instincts are strong and will keep you on course. The Full Moon this week falls in the area of your root base, home and personal life. You may determine your current arrangement is no longer serving long range goals and decide to make a move.     

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

CANCER June 21 – July 22

Difficulties that may have emerged in your relationships can be overcome as you continue to fortify your commitment. Connecting to one another through a shared vision of the future will bring you miles closer to sealing the gap that may have once divided you. Though these destinations may seem a bit vague or even reaching them untenable, the discussions initiated now do arouse reservoirs of imagination and idealism that gives you the tool box you’ll use when you do eventually build your dashboard. Social life is exciting in this period, take up an invitation to spend time with like minded people.      

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

LEO July 23 – August 22

You are revved up to make progress in your career and work assignments do a great deal to enhance your reputation, bringing you into prominence in the eyes of your superiors or those who can help you succeed. Obstacles which you may have recently confronted become easier to handle as you find a more supportive ambience which reinforces your objectives. Finances also get a boost from your added efforts and enable you to establish your position or authority. If in business negotiations or trying for a loan, be advised that discussions this week are just the first act in a three part series between now and April. Explore the options, but avoid commitments.     

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

VIRGO August 23 – September 22

You could be over your head in a whirlwind romance, as this week features several exquisite opportunities for enticing developments. Events have the potential to reinforce your longer range desires for something real and lasting, though if you don’t like the results you are getting, it might be time to re-evaluate the situation and recalibrate where required. This is only part one of a three act love story extending from now through early April, after all. Tune into your Full Moon phase at the beginning of the week to decide what you really want and plant the seeds you would like to harvest in about eight weeks.           

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

LIBRA September 23 – October 23

There seems to be a work around coming up with your job, role or title over the next 8 weeks. A potential re-do is in store where a position that fell through initially finally comes back on offer unexpectedly. What is put into motion this week sets the stage for the final word you get in April. The choices you make in this period should be serving attainment of long range professional goals. Your ruler Venus collaborates with Saturn and Pluto this week, not making for the easiest of bedfellows, but giving you the moxie to assert yourself with a certain conviction, especially in a troubling domestic situation. Improve your efficiency by carving out a morning and evening 15 for meditation and visualization.  

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

SCORPIO October 24 – November 21

This is a sweet week for a romantic liaison, and talking and texting all your mischievous desires will be an enticing distraction. Bear in mind there is a work in progress quality to the upcoming 8 weeks featuring several detours along the road to attainment of your heart’s desire. An intriguing realization or conversation that occurs this week does set up the major themes you will be dealing with. A dip back into the past is also likely and especially around the 18th if you can’t get someone out of your head, you might feel compelled to look them up to see if a second try is on order. Enjoy the revel, but hesitate to draw a conclusion for the time being. 

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22 – Dec 21

Chronic financial issues begin to clear up. Either you are finally getting the help you need, or holding it down on your own. Conviction you have held to maintain your values pays off for you now as does pinching the occasional penny. Domestic life can be interesting to unusual in the 8 weeks ahead, with an intuition or insight (even a dream or de ja vous can provide a juicy clue) mid week revealing what may lie in store over the coming phase for you. Confusion will be replaced by clarity if only eventually, for now you might just enjoy a trip down the rabbit hole. A family heirloom could hold an important message for you.  

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19 

Sultry winds are blowing Cap, and your attention turns to amorous (even naughty) thoughts this week. Your libido and creativity are stimulated, though you might just as easily turn attention inwards and bestow some of the love mojo you possess right now on yourself. If you are involved, or seek to be, your words can carry a distinctive weight at this time and be both alluring and convincing. It’s better not to try to make a decision over the next two months, as contracts and negotiations are most likely to curtail or require further review. Let your imagination guide you while remaining non-commital. The Full Moon opens doors to new options.      

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18

Be wary of the shell game over the coming weeks while a financial prospect remains elusive, becoming palpable at one moment, then out of reach the next. Strong imaginative influences are at play and this can yield treasure for you or culminate in defeat. Your instincts about this matter are quite strong and offer a strong anchor through the nautical adventures in store ahead. If a circumstance is feeling not quite right, then it’s on you to trust your gut and step back from what could into a financial fiasco. Social prospects brighten your days, accept invitations and enjoy the company of others.

2019 HoroscopeMonthly HoroscopeDaily Horoscope

PISCES February 19 – March 20

There is a lot to take in right now Pisces, and you have to be a bit selective about which filter you choose to see things through to make the most of the opportunities that surround you. You are in the midst of a very personal transformation and events that precipitate this week play a huge role in the outcome. Over the next 8 weeks you have a unique opportunity to explore what you really desire and while the vision of your ideal is likely to mutate between now and then, what you uncover will prove hugely inspirational to you. Friends and allies seem to have a direct insight into what makes you tick if you let them show you.

BOOK PREVIEW HERE 

2 of Swords – Libra Quarter Moon

Powerful forces collude this week, and the potential for complete transformation is possible as planets in Scorpio (Mars and Jupiter) connect with a game changing Sun – Venus – Pluto conjunction from Monday – Tuesday. Moon in Scorpio from Tuesday night enhances these connections through Thursday, making the whole week a vital springboard for a new way of life to unfold. Storylines (and especially romantic liaisons, or those of a financial nature) that began last Fall, particularly around October 5th, 26th and November 13th, evolve and gain momentum this week. Tuesday sets to begin a whole new chapter, this one featuring a deeply intimate connection with cathartic overtones. Conjoining at 19 Capricorn, this is playing for keeps territory, and fated and enduring vibes predominate.

Next weekend Venus switches gear, standing off with Uranus and push may come to shove with individuals who have been noncommittal (from Capricorn, Venus requires an assurance of fidelity,) or otherwise circumstances that have been unstable and unpredictable at best. Break ups and splits are thus equally possible this week, but only where the needs and desires of the partners have become too incongruous to maintain an ongoing association. There is a sense of urgency to conclude something, and impulsive choices may be made and just as quickly regretted. Mercury conjunct Saturn offers a more stabilizing influence at this time, and decisions factor into the long range goals that are being established. This has taken several week to take foot, and agreements, commitments and choices made next weekend set the tone for the coming year.

The Libra quarter Moon on Monday evening does much to escalate the stakes here. A dichotomy is indicated, and there is a significant choice that is difficult to make, especially under the auspices of all the other potent energy in place. In the closing quarter of the month, and in preparation for a mega New Moon in Capricorn in a weeks time, something indeed must come to a conclusion to clear the decks for what is percolating on that close horizon.

The Libra Moon is attached to the 2 of Swords Tarot card, and carries different interpretations that might be of assistance. On one hand there is the need to make a choice that ends an internal struggle, though on the other, none of the choices available may seemingly offer a positive resolution. The best thing to do is to search for inner peace, which may come readily as Venus is harmoniously activated by Sun, Mars, Jupiter and Pluto. The Moon is in conflict with Pluto, however, and resolving a long term transformation is required to integrate the potentials inherent in this moment. Look within and find your personal power.

Mercury enters Capricorn on Thursday, quickly connecting with Saturn over the weekend, generating an atmosphere of serious considerations. This aspect has occurred three times since late November, and a plan is finally ready to find it’s footing. The preparation and considerations of the prior phase make it possible to set a plan into the diary and move forward.

STARSCOPES:

 

april2-copy ARIES March 20 – April 19
Profession, aspirations and social standings are in tight focus from this week into next. Working steadily behind the scenes gets you closer to your desired outcomes. This coalesces into the New Moon next Tuesday, which sets you on a new path, one or a few rungs up the ladder of success. Going head to head with a loved one at this time, or over a contentious matter could put you at odds next weekend. Let the voice of reason whisper to you and choose your battles carefully.

may2-copy TAURUS April 20 – May 20
You benefit immensely from exploration and reaching beyond your normal comfort zone. Your honey pot is somewhere over the rainbow, so get on the road! A vexing work situation early in the week requires some evaluation and decision making. Intuition is strong now, so trust your gut. Romance gets hot and heavy from Tuesday, things can turn quite smoldering now. Honesty is the best policy on Saturday, and pretending you are something you are not, or lowering you standards will backfire.

june2-copy GEMINI May 21 – June 20
Immeasurable intimacy is possible now, and a commitment you make this week to a partner (for love or money, possibly both) will endure the test of time. You have hemmed and hawed over this one since late November, and it’s time to take the plunge. Overcoming a personal challenge is required of you early in the week, but a colleague at works comes to your aid and can offer good advice. Keep on your grind, you have places to go and passion and pleasure await on the other side.

july2-copy CANCER June 21 – July 22
Partnership dynamics come on full blast this week, a great deal of passion is expressed through a key relationship, or perhaps a new meeting is on the cards for you. The channels of communication open up from Thursday and you can articulate both your desires and goals within agreements. This has a more business oriented flavor, but does enhance your ability to come to term within any important association. Lock down on Saturday for that which you want to see stand the test of time.

aug2-copy LEO July 23 – August 22
Work and productivity get a major boost this week, making this a positive period if you are in the middle of a project or assignment that requires your all. If not, you might feel restless, in which case moderate exercise or work around the house can be a productive and satisfying outlet. Important goals surrounding your residence are enhanced and a work from home business can thrive now. A tense moment arises at work next weekend. Use your better judgement.

sep2-copy VIRGO August 23 – September 22
This can be a very satisfying and really pleasurable week, especially for rekindling your creative spark or taking a love relationship to the next level. From Thursday a favorable Mercury transit makes it much easier for you to express yourself, as well as your desires. The New Moon next week sets much into motion of which you are gathering a strong sense of now. Tensions can flare within a love association next weekend, as your playmate might not appreciate some of your more bizarre erotic tendencies.

oct2-copy LIBRA September 23 – October 23
Your interior realm undergoes profound transformation as you seize an inner strength you were not even aware you had. Money mojo connects to this assurance and you can negotiate for all your value, increase earnings and even discover a source of true abundance in this period. Success connects to knowing what you genuinely value the most. Keep in mind that money is only the vehicle that gets you to the destination. Define where you want to be to get there quicker. Prickly relational dynamics are probable next weekend.

nov2-copy SCORPIO October 24 – November 21
This continues to be a genuinely wonderful period full of growth and learning for team Scorpio. Communications and a new course of study for many of you provides immeasurable opportunities for self discovery and even lead to very meaningful new connections, maybe even of a love variety. You find it very easy to articulate yourself, especially after Thursday. Attention shifts off of prickly financial dynamics and towards thinking and self expression. Your tenacity pays off and a circumstance resolves.

dec2-copy SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 – Dec 21
The financial picture is quite bright, and especially those entering business agreements with friends will see positive outcomes. A lot of dealings or activity from behind the scenes enhances these activities, and intuition is shrewd and spot on, trust your instincts. The ball is a bit more in your court from early Friday, and evasive conditions can be put to rest. Love and finance mix like oil and water next weekend, pick your poison carefully.

jan2-copy CAPRICORN December 22 – January 19
Your passion and power continue to escalate making this the perfect climate in which to pursue your personal goals and blaze new trails. Conviction is at the heart this and you gain more by going for what you want than serving the needs or requirements of others. Something that has been fermenting within is about to crystalize and break out into the open (look towards the New Moon in your sign next week for specifics). A friend or allay plays a huge role, opening a door for you. From Thursday and even more so Saturday you are prepared to state you case. Evaluate goals on Monday.

feb2-copy AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Not unlike a subterranean explorer you are mining your most private and personal realm for gems of wisdom and understanding. Taking a good amount of time out for this does well to serve your professional goals, which are also emphasized now. A heightened 6th sense works in your favor, and the whole week through Thursday serves to get you on track in more ways than one. Thursday can be especially vital in this regard. Not so easy when dynamics next weekend bring up tensions within your social sphere. Choose the words with extreme caution, a secret betrayed can prove disastrous.

march2-copy PISCES February 19 – March 20
Friendships and networking opportunities hold allure and the potential for a romantic attachment to blossom. People who share your interests and can help you to development will have the most appeal right now. This will prove a demonstrable shift from the harder work and challenge of the prior years and you may feel as through you are coming into your own. The quarter moon on Monday points out a touchy financial situation. Borrowing or paying back money is a heavy consideration. From Thursday you expand influence in your network and can cultivate beneficial associations.

STARGAZER FEBRUARY 2016

Constellation David Bowie, may you forever be the brightest of the stars in the sky.

February – Minefields and Maintenance

If January felt like a false start, worry not – it was due to the Mercury retrograde phase that lasted from January 6 – 26 that slowed our New Year’s progress considerably. Very potent forces are at work this month, particularly in the first half, that have a very favorable influence on business and commercial activities. Sun in Pisces from the 19th softens the edges considerably, until then the atmosphere is very productive as Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter all collaborate effectively to assist us to meet our material and professional goals. Any traction you may have thought you lost last month is quickly made up for. The climate is serious and tenacious, and objectives are highly intensified in the first two weeks.

We do have the challenges of Venus – Pluto and Venus – Uranus to overcome on the 5th and 6th. Uranus and Pluto are still in tight angle, and Mercury retrograde recently brought light to this conflict December 20 – 21, 2015, then again in late January 21st and 22nd, and again the 30th and 31st. All these contacts pointed to hard confrontations with Uranus – Pluto, and trying to break through the incredible pressures we have felt as a result of their square (which has been a pervasive issue since June 24, 2012). This simmering, volatile confrontation between ourselves and circumstances or with others has been a major influence on this recent Mercury retrograde cycle in January. Mercury has articulated the issue, and now Venus enters the picture, appealing to our heart at this crucial turning point. Themes of power and control (Pluto) remain relevant, while the square to Uranus can suggest a highly unanticipated backlash. Love may indeed prove to be the catalyst for a major breakthrough at this time. These are hair-trigger minefield aspects, so proceed cautiously. It’s ultimately a personal choice each of us will make to engage with or disarm the conflicts that arise. (Feeling stressed? Check out the breathing exercise at the very bottom of this post. It helps me enormously when I feel overwhelmed!*)

Jupiter and the North Node remain in close proximity for the first week of the month. We are still being asked to see the bigger picture, and to use that awareness to meet the evolutionary goals of Virgo North Node. That goal is about doing something really, really well and a refinement of a project, product or the self are all indicated. With Virgo everything is in the details, so check and double check that the quality of each part of whatever it is you are working on is absolutely spot on perfect. Jupiter is retrograde so it’s more likely we are seeing the ways in which we didn’t handle the topic (of the house being transited in your chart) well enough. Retrogrades are all about re-evaluation, and on a more positive note, second chances. These two meet again in June, offering a huge boost up the evolutionary ladder where we now take the time to scrutinize what could be improved upon and then doing the work to make the project, product or ourselves better so we may fully take advantage of that second chance.

Mercury (Feb. 7), Venus (February 10th) and Mars (February 16th) tap the Nodal Axis, offering a vantage point that allows us to see both where we are headed and where we came from simultaneously. It’s easier now to reconcile to endings we have or will be making, (most likely during the South Node conjunctions occurring next month, as well as at the time of the Pisces eclipse March 8th,) so if you get intonations it’s time to start saying farewell to something or someone, (and this may be part of a highly internal process, preparing YOURSELF for transformative experiences ahead,) by all means, heed those cues. The intuition you get around these dates is highly accurate, and you may even notice serendipities occurring around you that tie into events that transpired late last August/early September or receive a premonitory flash of what is to come.

AQUARIUS NEW MOON Feb. 8th

aquarius new moon

Our viewpoint becomes radicalized as Sun transits Aquarius, followed by Mercury Feb. 14th and Venus Feb. 16th. The Aquarius New Moon on the 8th harmonizes the forming Aries/Uranus – Saturn/Sagittarius trine offering an exciting beginning within a project or association that will assist us in bringing matters to a phenomenal conclusion in December. With this we are thinking back to activities initiated as far back as 2011, so this can be tied into a real long range project that is currently receiving fresh impulses. On it’s own, the New Moon is mostly positive, though a square to Mars in Scorpio can suggest rash decisions coming out of an argument or that a confrontational episode can be in store. Scorpio can be quite obstinate, as can Aquarius in it’s own right. Not unlike the Uranus – Pluto square itself, (Uranus rules Aquarius and Pluto rules Scorpio, go figure!) the progressive and radical influences of Aquarius are being challenged by the harsh and punishing forces of Scorpio. Conversely, Scorpio’s desire for in depth transformation is disrupted by the unexpected events that occur. Use the New Moon to get to the bottom of a problem, be ready to rumble, and keep the emphasis on the long range dynamics.

The Sabian Symbol of the New Moon evokes the image of “A forest fire quenched” suggesting something in our lives that has grown disproportionately out of control (Mars in Scorpio?) is ready to be extinguished. We will use the best and most ingenious tools Aquarius offers to mitigate a potentially life threatening disaster. The rational mind is our greatest ally in confronting the challenge in front of us.

Sun in Pisces from the 19th offers a far more subdued ambience. A dreamy and introspective quality is present and reflection and day dreaming can be a facet over the upcoming weeks. A Full Moon in Virgo on the 22nd illuminates a desire to rest and reflect. Neptune is the prevailing influence over this lunation and we will seek a soul connection that offers a glimpse into the beautiful and etherial. The associated Sabian Symbol for Virgo 3 (the placement of the Virgo Full Moon) is “Two Guardian Angels Bringing Protection”. During this Lunation it is best to trust your inner guidance and intuition. Avoid the role of the martyr or victim of circumstance. Learn to listen to your inner voice.

STARGAZER HOROSCOPE FOR FEBRUARY 2016

ARIES – Career prospects continue to brighten as any indecision or false starts that were pervasive last month quickly recede into the past tense. Look to the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 10th for your best days in which to expand your influence or make a good impression. Mixing business with pleasure can have a catastrophic, or at least unexpected result on the 5th – 6th. Future perfect resides with a group of friends and allies, you seem to be working on a group project that genuinely enhances or showcases your talents brilliantly. The New Moon on the 8th can signal incredible developments, though a secret revealed (or betrayed) can prove a highly contentious influence. From the 19th it is withdraw, retreat and regroup. Sleep in, meditate or what ever helps you R + R, in a month it’s your birthday and with an eclipse brewing from your sign, things are going to change, really, really soon in ways you can’t even imagine.

TAURUS – There is a nice mix of professional, personal and social energy floating around this month. Should you find yourself on distant shores, a true love connection may be made, particularly around the 5th, 6th, 7th and 10th. Academic associates can have a similar effect. The work you do in the first half of the month towards your professional goals yields positive results and an elevated profile from the 16th. Your reputation is stellar and your commitment shines on the 29th. A New Moon affecting this area on the 8th can present wonderful opportunities, a partner doesn’t seem to share your enthusiasm, however, or there may be a conflict with a business partner over the direction of a joint project. Rather than sow the seeds of discontent, you can keep a low profile and do your work behind the scenes for the best result. The Virgo Full Moon on the 22nd sees a love relationship, your creativity or child/ren in view. The softening effect of Neptune will help you see the best in someone, highlighting an enticing romantic episode for you.

GEMINI – You start to feel more comfortable in your own skin, especially after the 14th as it becomes easier to express and articulate yourself. Pleasurable experiences in store from the 18th enhance feelings of attraction and self worth. The first half sees you busy behind the scenes, as a work project is demanding a great deal of your attention. Your productivity is yielding very positive results, particularly around the 3rd, 7th and 10th, keep at it! Aquarius New Moon on the 8th can be contentious, a work mate or project throws a wrench into travel plans that can have you steaming. Your ideologies can equally be challenged. Professional objectives come into focus after the 19th. Sun – Neptune combined on the 28th signals an ideal you would like to reach in your profession. You can make an ally the following day who will help you reach your summit.

CANCER – Things continue to amplify in a love relationship. The first two weeks are telling of how deep your feelings go. The 3rd, 5th and 7th are extraordinary for cultivating a meaningful bond, you can easily express your feelings on the 10th. The New Moon on the 8th affects your intimacy sector and Very Serious relationships, including those that you have with banks and creditors, i.e. financial agreements. Challenges arise through a lover or your children, who somehow come into conflict with your desire to make such commitments. It’s a perplexing one, though your profession benefits from choices you make now. Weigh the pros and cons before you commit. The 6th also features vexing influences. Sun in Pisces from the 19th puts you back in your comfort zone, and a conjunction to Neptune on the 28th can see you dreaming of distant shores.

LEO – Work and productivity are the major arena of your attention for the first half, though a relationship also has you riveted. Following the twists and turns of last month you’ll be happy to find a new normal in your work schedule or routine. Venus promises good relations with coworkers, particularly around the 7th and 10th and you will find success with projects, including those related to health and wellness on these days. The New Moon on the 8th can generate friction at your residence or with a close family or partner. You are mostly in your element, but a cranky live in or problem with the house throws everything haywire. From the 16th it’s all eyes on a special someone, you can make an enduring commitment on the 29th. Financials are a focus after the 19th, be very cautious about agreements made with banks or other entities around the 28th, you simply aren’t seeing the whole picture.

VIRGO – Your work life and productivity are peaking (just as you like it) and there are really wonderful opportunities throughout the month to make substantial progress at your job. The love life is also quite fulfilling, and sweeping changes on the periphery can be signaled during the Full Moon in your sign on the 22nd. An eclipse falling in opposition to your sign next month is going to present a major (positive) upset to the status quo. You begin to feel this in your bones by the 19th. Very promising romantic moments on the 5th, 7th and 10th can bring new people into your orbit, or allow you to cultivate an ongoing relationship. A very passionate moment on the 5th shows you how deep your love goes. Fantasy looms large on the 28th, all is not what it seems. Domestic concerns can be effectively dealt with on the 25th and 29th.

LIBRA – You begin to stir from your winter hibernation, though the first two weeks may still see you keeping it close to home. The New Moon on the 8th signals it is time for pleasure, though niggling financial issues can put a damper on your more leisurely pursuits. Use the signals you get at this time to address how much effort you need to put into your revenue stream. The results favor an eclectic relationship you would like to see develop over the coming year. The 3rd and 13th have favorable financial indications and you can seal the deal on an important contract around these dates. From the 16th you are back in your element and it’s let the good times roll, for the most part. The Full Moon on the 22nd sees you releasing something, a whole way of life is coming to an end. This happens in a very private part of your chart, and is the culmination of a very personal exit strategy you have been working on for over a year. Next month your life changes completely. Release what you need to now to make space for what lies ahead.

SCORPIO – You find the words to articulate what could not be said last month as a gentle and even romanic ambience pervades in your day to day life. You may strike up a conversation in the most unlikely of places, the 7th and 10th can bring lovely interactions with potential for more. A passionate conversation on the 5th can lead to a better understanding of the motives and desires of a lover. Domestic concerns are still significant, there can be a very confrontational episode with someone attached to your residence on the 8th. A more positive inroads can be made on the home front after the 16th. Romance and pleasure feature largely as Sun moves into Pisces on the 19th, and you will seek an ideal love connection on the 28th. You are persuasive on the 3rd and 13th. Set meetings and presentations for these dates, you will convey yourself with the right balance of tact and assertiveness. Financial matters can be effectively dealt with on the 25th and 29th.

SAGITTARIUS – The ambience continues to become more social for you, with indications throughout the month for activities and excursions. Finances are still significant through the first half, as very positive circumstances unfold on the 3rd, 5th, 7th and 10th that add to your earnings in a positive way. Unexpected expenses on the 6th can provide an upset. The family and home dynamic becomes emphasized after the 19th, with the Full Moon on the 22nd indicating a professional opportunity that could potentially require relocation. All the pieces fall into place next month during the Pisces eclipse. What you feel in your bones on the 7th, 10th and 16th is quite revealing of what is in store. Watch words and guard your secrets on the 8th. A stormy New Moon in Aquarius offers a wonderful beginning in a communications based project taped right into your self expression and creativity, but a force from behind the scenes throws in a tempestuous influence. Proceed with caution.

CAPRICORN – The best part of having Venus in your sign, (through the 16th,) is being able to put yourself first without regret or retribution. The 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 10th and 13th are all very positive for you in matters of both business and pleasure. A harmonious relationship between Venus and Mars combined with commercially oriented Mercury and Jupiter provide the perfect ambience to not only go after (Mars) but receive (Venus) what you desire. All aspects of life are positively enhanced by these transits. The financial realm is stimulated, just be cautious around the 8th, when an opportunity may undermined by a friend or colleague. People seek to express their opinion and exert influence on you. Better financial auspices are present from the 16th. The 6th can see contemptuous influences in your home or residence. Time for a radical reappraisal of what you are willing to live with. Take care of yourself in this phase, next month brings dynamic and sudden changes to the status quo and you will need all your energy and faculties ready to jump on the (professional) opportunity that is going to be presented.

AQUARIUS – The professional forces continue to be a strong influence, though as you close in on your birthday (or have already) you seem to be experiencing growing pains as you try to define the role you see yourself serving in society. The New Moon in your sign on the 8th can be quite contentious in this regard. A boss or the requirements of your career commitments seem to really be at odds with your personal expression. You have allies and amigos who will provide incredible assistance to you as you navigate the challenges ahead. Things get way better after the 16th when Venus brings her good vibrations into your sign for a nice sweet month. Mercury also in your sign after the 13th brings a brisk and exciting tempo to the daily life. Meaningful romantic and business alliances can be formed on the 25th and 29th. Be very wary of financial schemes around the 28th. Somehow you just won’t get what you bargained for.

PISCES – It’s better late than never where the realization of your most cherished aspirations is concerned. Venus makes highly beneficial aspects (look at the 5th, 7th, 10th, specifically) highlighting positive social opportunities and the projects you are doing with a group or organization. Transformation is brewing and you begin to get indications (the 7th, 10th, 16th and 22nd offer vital clues) that your whole life is about to change. Indeed it is, as a powerful eclipse in your sign March 8th upends the status quo entirely, and probably for the better. From mid month you go undercover, building up your inner reservoir for all that is about to come into being. Professional matters see positive developments on the 25th and 29th. Tune into your most etherial self on the 28th. A vision or intuition guides you for the coming year.
