Feb. 18 – 24, 2015


For All Signs: The planets Venus and Mars will be aligned on Feb. 22. Venus, the ancient goddess of love, carries broad feminine and relational/romantic symbolism. Mars is the warrior god and prevails over masculine territory. The symbolism suggests the conclusion of one relationship and the beginning of another. Alternatively the conjunction speaks of the beginning and ending of episodes or cycles within an ongoing relationship. This conjunction is in the sign of Aries in which the warrior is the stronger of the two energies. It marks the beginning of a fresh cycle that will last for 23 months. Used well, we can take advantage of this opportunity to repair rifts and achieve positive closures. Those who are in an immature relationship may use it to break that relationship altogether. Give special attention to new beginnings in all relationships, whether romantic, platonic, business, or geopolitical.

Aries: This month's Venus/Mars alignment brings you face to face with your individuality versus your relationship. You must consciously evaluate how you will manage to meet your personal needs and yet remain connected to the “other” in your life. This is a 22 month project, so it doesn’t have to be done overnight. You may be prone to cut ties prematurely. Think carefully.

Taurus: You have a need to be alone and quiet during this period. That is why social life is not going so well. Give attention to your inner life and notice what your thoughts may be manifesting. Is it really what you want in your future? Think carefully. Give attention to your dreams. The new relationship may be with a healer/helper.

Gemini: This is an excellent time to pursue any activity that requires your mental concentration. It is also a fine week to discuss plans with a partner or Significant Other. You can think well together. The week favors education in high tech or theoretical skills.

Cancer: It is possible that the “last chance new moon” on the 18th will cause you to feel as though you want to crawl into your shell and be quiet. The probability is that issues concerning debt and your eventual legacy will require attention soon. You will need to make solid plans.

Leo: There are occasionally moments in life when we are focused upon contemplation of the deeper topics in life. Why am I here? What is my purpose? Where am I headed? Do I take action based upon my principles or am I adopting the values of someone else? Now is the time to examine these issues because you are being pressured to put more energy into a project that began in Dec. Is it right for you?

Virgo: Your ability to concentrate upon projects that require management of details is strong. Organizing files, closets and cabinets will clear the clutter from your mind. If you focus your mind on a mentally challenging project that can have an identifiable outcome, things will move smoothly.

Libra: This is a highly significant period in your primary relationship(s). You have issues to work through and healing to do for both of you. Sidestep the temptation to drill your truth into the mind of another. If you do not share a consensus reality, then search for a higher perspective that includes both.

Scorpio: It's time to take a good look at your self-care habits and beef up your resolve to strengthen your body. If you are already strong, then perhaps you can help others toward self-improvement. You have wanted to make changes in your work life. A new idea or opportunity will likely come to you now.

Sagittarius: In Dec. you shifted gears and determined a new direction for yourself. This is a time in which you must decide whether or not to pour more resources into the plan or let it go. Though you would rather not have the problem, you probably will choose to see it through.

Capricorn: You may be seen as a secondary player at this time. This might have become your place in life for the present. Even so, your production will be practical and useful to those in your vicinity. See yourself as a necessary cog in the larger project.

Aquarius: Social and romantic life is favored this week. You may be mixing business and pleasure in a pleasant combination. This is a good time to discuss issues within a relationship because you are steady of mind and likely to be realistic, in relation to yourself as well as others.

Pisces: The sun returns "home" to your sign this week. Take a fresh look at where you want to direct your attention. Use this month to let go of past hurts and take a deep breath of healing energy. You may be asked to explain your decisions or behavior to a superior.
