Feb. 4–10, 2015


For All Signs: I have written several columns about the importance of the Uranus/Pluto squares. There are seven of them. The “feel” of this aspect began in 2010 as the Arab Spring developed. We are approaching the last square in March. It is a war between the common people and the Powers That Be. I want to interpret the message in a different way. Challenging aspects are not there to harass humans. They always convey a message. This series is more dramatic than anything we have seen since the era of the Great Depression. We are asked to make decisions that are far more mature than in the past. Our war toys and our economic systems serve the god of the Ego, and have outworn their time on this planet. Now, more than ever in the past, we must choose the consciousness that will help us create more deliberate and more mature choices. The consequences are self-evident at this point. Whatever the world may be doing, we can choose to grow our maturity on an individual level.

Aries: This is absolutely not a time to take an offensive, attacking position. If you feel angered by another, think the situation through from the very beginning. Look for your contribution to the problem. On the other hand, if someone else takes a swing at you, you may defend yourself as needed.

Taurus: Much of your attention this week will be focused on friendships and perhaps group and community concerns. Your partner or significant other will understand these needs and may be a helpful resource. You probably will choose to put personal needs aside for the present.

Gemini: Your memory may be full of holes during this period. Recognize this and don’t pretend it isn’t so. Write notes to yourself. Your partner or a Significant Other can also be of help. If you find an interesting item on the Internet, print it. Don’t count on holding it in mind or finding it again.

Cancer: It will be important at this time to use firmness about your boundaries. This is likely to be particularly so with family members who may want to overrun your plans. Unfortunately, the interference may be from a broken thing, such as the washer. The warrior is in your corner. You can get this resolved to your satisfaction. Just be firm and ask for what you need.

Leo: This is a time in which your exuberance and enthusiasm may carry you farther than you really intended to go. You will certainly have more energy to do whatever you choose, but take care that you don't promise way more than you can deliver. Leave the credit cards at home so you will have to really think before you make an extravagant purchase.

Virgo: Your body seems to be on a low cycle at present. Take all your vitamins and get plenty of rest. You have been searching for a necessary piece of paperwork which is likely to surface this week. Clear your mind of anxiety and think. It has been misfiled or has fallen behind something larger.

Libra: Taking care of others in recent weeks may take a toll on your body. If you are feeling resentful or irritable about adding yet one more helping project, you are on the verge of burnout. It is important to be aware of this possibility. Annoyance with the needs of others is a sure sign you need to take a break.

Scorpio: This is not the smoothest of weeks. Your energy is in high gear and prone to overreact to any disturbing circumstances. This is most particularly in the areas of your daily work life, health, and relationship(s) to children or lovers. Your reflexes are off. Handle tools and cars with care.

Sagittarius: An option for a new job or career may be dangling in front of you. Think twice or three times before making a move now. Circumstances are likely to be more favorable after Feb. 11, when Mercury turns direct. Overall it is timely to take on a new identity in life, but that doesn’t have to be today.

Capricorn: You may recognize that an expenditure made recently is not really the right solution. Your frame of mind at the time was really conservative and now you see it was overly so. You may be able to take it back if you move quickly. If not, look at ways to re-purpose the item so it will serve another need.

Aquarius: Drive with caution this week. Your careful attention may save you a lot of trouble and energy in repairs. Make it a point to focus your mind on what is right in front of you. You have a tendency right now to drift and daydream. If you can allow it in a restful way, you can enjoy it.

Pisces: This is a week devoted to mental or emotional healthcare. As you live into this experience, you will re-discover that having compassion also heals you. Pisces is often the caregiver. You have this experience regularly. A life lesson for you is to care for others without becoming their pain, or taking it on as your personal issue. That would be good mental health care for you.
