For the week of February 11, 2004


For All Signs Basic astrological understanding comes from the four elements: fire, earth, air, and water. The Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) are fluid, emotional, and the range of their dispositions moves readily from ice storm to placid river to steam. Waters love the comforts of home and family and are strongly nurturing of anything that lives. They have compassionate instincts and are drawn to care for whomever or whatever seems weakened, defective or on the losing side. Waters are adept in the world of feeling and rarely are unduly frightened by any emotion they encounter. They tend to resist intellectual values. See next week for earth.

Aries Venus entered your sign last week and will be traveling "with you" through Mar. 6. Her presence gives you an air of poise and beauty, and people will simply like how you look. Often when Venus is prominent we become more interested in art forms.

Taurus A bit of R&R is in order. Although the Bulls are fond of people activities, now is a good time for a relative withdrawal into the quiet. Circumstances may cause you to be left relatively alone and this is a good thing, so relax and enjoy the advantages.

Gemini You may be wrestling with an ethical issue, generated by circumstances related to a family member. It is hard to find resolution right now, so set it aside, if possible, for one to two weeks. Travel, legal interests, or educational activities are subject to confusion or internal conflict.

Cancer You may be feeling solitary and alone this week, even if others are all around you. Make an effort to set aside critical thoughts about yourself or others for a few days. You may be seeing the world through a gray lens right now and that will pass.

Leo You have no new aspects this week. This suggests that the time is very good for cleaning up projects of recent days and weeks. Your attention continues to be focused on your relationships and the activities of significant others. Enjoy the quiet time right now.

Virgo Allergies and/or digestive disorders may kick up at this time. Do your best to maintain a good diet and get plenty of sleep. You will probably need more than normal, so don't argue the point with yourself. Communications with others are potentially confusing.

Libra Think about what you initiated in June, 04. It may have been tied to a direction in your career, a new business relationship, or a new phase in your love life. Now is the time when that beginning comes to fruition and you can see the fruits of your labors.

Scorpio Financial worries may create strain in personal relationships. Keep the channels of communication open and to make a plan to resolve problems. Aspects are favorable for travel, legal involvement, educational activities, publishing or internet activity.

Sagittarius You have a need to attend to the physical body this week. The best prescription is to tackle a heavy project or engage in energetic exercise. If you do not, you may find yourself inexplicably irritable and at odds with your world.

Capricorn Activities concerning love life, play, and your significant other are given a boost this week. There is a problem for your partner concerning work relationship(s) that requires special attention and time. You need more space for storage and will be interested in consolidating possessions.

Aquarius Your creativity and imagination are working overtime this week. It is particularly important that you ask for feedback on all communications at this time. You may think you have stated something very clearly that the other person has completely misunderstood.

Pisces It is important to be still several times per day and clear your mind of conscious chatter at this time. The intuitive side of you wants to be expressed, through words, art or spiritual means, but it cannot break through without conscious help.
