The Fish: (Feb. 18 -- March 19)
The eclipsed new moon is in your sign this week. That marks a clear turning point of self-definition. Do you like the direction of everything in your life as it stands right now? Use your intuition and think it over carefully. There is at least one factor that needs to be changed to avoid a train wreck.
For All Signs: The eclipsed new moon on the 18th continues to emphasize the areas of our lives that need to be rejuvenated, tweaked or firmly changed. Meanwhile March 20th brings us the spring equinox, the time of symbolic renewal of all things spiritual, emotional and mental. Many centuries of the transformation from winter to spring are deeply inscribed in our human genetic memory. Even those who think they are not affected will not be able to help lightening their step as incoming spring progresses.
Aries: Issues of power are highly prominent now. Your instinct is to take control of a situation and drag satisfaction out of it. You must be very careful how you handle this energy. If you respond like a Sherman tank, those who have greater influence will resist and give you more challenges. Try to be fair.
Taurus: This is a good time for self-renewal. You may do this alone in the quiet, or you may choose to talk in depth with a trusted friend. After the 18th your energy becomes more outgoing. Venus' presence in your sign through April 10 gives you an air of poise and beauty, and people will simply like how you look.
Gemini: Aspects favor travel, romance, the arts and legal or educational interests. On the 18th your attention will turn toward your life direction. For many, this is reflected by the career path. You may be researching needed information or talking with others about where you are headed.
Cancer: We have an eclipse on the new moon of the 18th this week. This symbolizes critical starts in one or more of the following arenas: travel, education, grandchildren, in-laws, publishing or church matters. Obviously not every one of these is triggered.
Leo: A creative project begun in December or January arrives at a turning point. It is now you must decide to invest more in its development or let it go. During the next few weeks the following areas will be highlighted with increased activity: travel, education, publishing, the Internet and evaluating your belief systems.
Virgo: Romance, love and family life are favored early in the week. For the next few weeks, your attention is focused heavily on the "others" in your life and the state of your relationships. Look for ways to renew and share energy with your partner, business associates and close friends.
Libra: Relationships take on an increased depth over the next few weeks. Even long-term partnerships will be sharing more intimately than usual about feelings. Positive influences and opportunities or gifts come your way. Money owed to you will be paid.
Scorpio: Multiple aspects suggest this is no ordinary week. Power is a theme. Who has control? If someone else does not seize it, then you will because you know something needs to be done quickly. Money and romance are prominent features. Love life presents two options: one that is great and another that is highly challenging.
Sagittarius: You are seeing positive outcomes from that which you began in 2000-01. Your business community is growing to include a wider spectrum than you imagined possible in the beginning. Hold to your optimism and ability to attract what you need. Don't allow the desire to control to overtake you, lest you fail.
Capricorn: A fortunate turn of events is occurring during this period. It is an outcome of work invested since 2000. An "angel" comes along to help you on your path. This is one who can help you get past a financial bind in a business-like way. Winning the sweepstakes is unlikely, but useful practical assistance is probable.
Aquarius: This is a time to carefully evaluate just how much responsibility you can accept for the life of another. Giving help is one thing, but too much control causes others to give up and let you do the whole pie. Reserve some time for yourself and do something social and frivolous for a change of pace.
