Horoscope for Feb. 17-23, 2010


Pisces The Fish: (Feb. 18-Mar 19): Early in the week an opportunity to expand your social life brings smiles. You may be invited to a party or you might meet someone new. This aspect is from Venus, goddess of love and creativity. The muse may be at your side as you produce a particularly creative idea or solution to a problem.

For All Signs: The energy that has shined upon us for over a year through the sign of Aquarius is continuing to be a powerful beacon. These planets are not caught up into the arguments and drama of the world. As a group they are like a super brilliant star which calls each of us to grow, to mature, to become greater than we were before. Do not be overwhelmed by the magnitude of the task. The main job for us all is to seek more mature responses to our everyday lives. If enough people on the planet will take on this challenge, the circus making hoard will slide off the top and a new conscious majority will emerge.

Aries: It continues to be challenging for you to move forward. This is one very long Mars retrograde for you. Do what you can and don't fight with the things you cannot do. You may have a romantic relationship that has been tabled.

Taurus: You continue to be focused on your friends or community projects. The jammed knots of last week are beginning to disentangle now. You are interested in whatever feels luxurious, looks beautiful, or tickles the senses.

Gemini: You may need to concentrate in order to avoid critics, whether they be internal or external. Instead of blame, use the discipline to tackle a project that requires concentration. Avoid contracts and business negotiations right now because misunderstandings may develop.

Cancer: There is an issue with a partner. One of you has a desire to roam, whether intellectually or physically. The other is keeping the nose to the grindstone or valuing the rules. You may be taking one side or the other, while partner takes the opposing view. This is not an insoluble dilemma.

Leo: There are occasional 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 merely pleasing others? Taking stock brings greater clarity.

Virgo: The pressure of pending change is making itself known in your work arena. It is true that change is absolutely necessary. Make a strong effort to sidestep the Critic, whether it beats on someone else or yourself.

Libra: You may need to concentrate in order to avoid critics, whether they be internal or external. Instead of blame, use the discipline to tackle a project that requires concentration. Paperwork is a challenge, but the people with whom you are working are a joy at this time.

Scorpio: The work and career scene continues to be challenging and it seems as though nothing will move there, but have patience. In the meantime your relationship to a lover or your child is growing toward a thing of beauty.

Sagittarius: Home, hearth, and family are of particular pleasure to you at this time. It's possible you are considering a redecorating project, either at home or at work. You are tempted in the direction of the luxurious now.

Capricorn: Concern about resources, whether that be money, time, or energy, is a focal point this week. Think carefully about what is truly important to you now, at this time in your life. This is a time to rethink everything.

Aquarius: This is a week in which you will tend to be thinking obsessively. It is an opportunity to learn how to better control your mind. Shift your attention to something less dramatic, such as whatever is happening this moment.
