Horoscope for the Week beginning February 23
Tip of the Week
Pisces time is well underway with five planets in the slippery and elusive sign of the fish.
Supported by powerful currents triggered by the recent Solar Eclipse in the late degree of Aquarius, 2018 is really beginning to roll. That eclipse also unleashed the barking Earth Dog. You get bet what it is up to; digging for bones and other treasures, of course. Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus entering Taurus in May corresponds well to this theme.
The Dog is known to be black and white in their attitudes. Are you friend or foe? Decide quickly. Well, the Dog might decide for you, actually. It could amount to whether they consider you to be worthy of friendship. Loyalty to those they love, often linked to those who feed them, is without question.
Meanwhile, Sun, Mercury, Venus, Chiron and Neptune in Pisces are a very noteworthy stellium of focus. It brings inspirations and the invitation to dream. Yet, it also implies brainstorming to generate ideas and outline plans, even. Mercury conjunct Venus comes into wide orb by about February 22 and actually become conjunct on March 4 and will remain closely aligned all the way until Spring Equinox due to Mercury turning Retrograde in Aries. More on that later…
Feb. 23 – March 1
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Ducking out of the limelight for a while will prove rewarding. Getting away or going on some kind of retreat would be ideal. Yes, travel is indicated. If you can’t get away literally, find another way as with a good book perhaps. Meanwhile, settling accounts and attending to various financial interests and responsibilities is featured.
Sometimes the waters are choppy while at others smooth and calm yet the waves can prove to be large and powerful as well. This metaphor describes what is indicated now. Your passions are high as well and you want to engage. Joining with friends of like mind and shared interest is likely. Will you enjoy reverie together or actually ride? It’s all good.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
A series of complex interactions are keeping you busy. Some of these are linked to your public and professional life. Some edgy interactions are likely and pushing you to be faithful and positive, but you have to work at it. These setbacks may also be linked to others close to you undergoing personal challenges. Persevere faithfully.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
Stepping back to see a bigger picture to reassess who you are at this stage of your journey and what you want is a central theme. It does require some extra effort, yet it may amount to creative thinking more than physical effort. Taking time to reflect on what is important and what you truly feel you need beyond outer pressures could save you time and effort.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
You are mid-way through a potentially deep and difficult cycle. Positively, you are purging and releasing things from your life that no longer serve a meaningful purpose. This could include certain relationship involvements. But, it could include some of your own attitudes and approaches to things. Amidst it all, clarity breeds confidence.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Dealing with others of late brings a rich blend of results ranging from the extraordinary to the utter dismal. The negative end may not be devastating, but at least annoying and disappointing. It may seem as though people and situations are not as reliable as they used to be. It may seem that much is simply disintegrating. Trust the process and keep on moving on accordingly.
Making Changes and adjustments in your daily rhythm and routine is likely now. Your choices are linked to financial goals and interests. Serious consideration of new employment is a distinct possibility. Your ambitions continue to climb and your energy levels are too supporting you to answer the call.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
A feature of being the most complex sign of the zodiac is that you are very proud and protective of your unique sense of individuality. In other words, others may find you to be quite an enigma. Asserting your sense of power feels important now and this comes with a rebellious spirit. Yet, situations call for humility and cooperation.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
A journey within to lay claim to your deepest truths and your heart’s true desire continues. If you move beyond guilt, attachment, fear and such and can simply identify what you feel you need and want, you will be more than halfway there. Where the results are mixed and involving others, a process of dialogue will bring you closer to your dreams.
Due to a series of changes and endings in your life, you find yourself making new connections. Some of these are relatively obvious and outer while others are directed to access your truth. A process of critical analysis is implied. What you are quickly discovering is that your entire scope of perceptions is also steadily undergoing changes causing you to make new associations.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
Your perceptions and priorities are steadily changing. Each is activating the other and it is difficult to know which started first. The result is a push to enter the public arena with a new sense of resolve. At this point, a spirited assertion balanced by a sober appreciation of the existing outer realities should produce satisfactory results.
Inspirations to take new leads are yours to enjoy and act upon now. Seeing a bigger picture is featured. This can include long-term considerations but also exploring new arenas, markets and locations altogether. As well, forging new alliances is also likely. The main goal now is that you prepare the ground for more creativity and diversity.
