Pisces The Fish (Feb. 18-March 19)
Short trips, writing, education and connections with powerful friends are favored during this week. Everyone wants to know what you think. Be really conscious of your words and tone of voice. You may accidentally offend someone.
For All Signs: Opposition is the theme for this week. It is a time of confrontation and laying our cards on the table. This may be happening globally and it might be occurring in your own backyard. At this time, boundary setting and making the structure clear is necessary before forward motion can continue. It is a good period for digging until we have solid ground. We will be hearing a lot about the "rules." Use caution while driving. There are those who regularly break the rules and they will be out in droves. Don't take risks with cars or any other types of tools.
Aries: You may be backpedaling your way out of one or more relationships right now. What you fear is being smothered or overwhelmed. Your ruling planet, Mars, is retrograde. Be aware that the war is really internal. Perhaps you let yourself become closer than you really wanted.
Taurus: You and your child or a lover may not be seeing eye to eye at this time. It may be best to find other things to do for distraction than spend much time together. This is not a time for open quarreling. It will only create resentment that follows you around for too long.
Gemini: Irritability and a tendency to short temper may be your companions this week. Beware the temptation to obsess over minor issues. Take especially good care of your body at this time. You are in a physically low cycle and subject to accident or minor injuries with tools, or vehicles.
Cancer: You may feel out of sorts this week. Your feelings are in conflict with your ideal self and your values. You want to put your best foot forward, but circumstances do not feel quite right. If the conflict is deep, it is usually best to wait and not yield to whatever pressure is around you. You will sort it all out soon.
Leo: This week is about finding healing on either the physical or emotional levels. You may be the healer or the healee. If a friendship or a more significant relationship needs mending, now is the time to do so. The willingness to open your heart and mind to give and to receive is yours at this time.
Virgo: This looks like a week in which you really want to say your piece, but you have a sense that would be a bad idea. Agreed. Mars continues to retrograde in Virgo. If someone "attacks" you, then you may safely defend yourself. But if you want to snipe at anyone, you'd best keep it to yourself for now.
Libra: Necessary expenses (those not of the "fun" type) may develop this week. If not that, you could be just having a little blue mood. It is one of those times when we operate better in solitude. This is an existential dilemma that everyone encounters now and then. It will pass quickly.
Scorpio: Your significant other may be acting like a horse's patootie right now, but you don't have to follow suit and play in the same court. Neither of you is being served by sharp words and irritable behavior. "Prove it if you love me" is a game left over from the cave people. Leave it alone.
Sagittarius: One or more of your family will assist if you have need of extra support at this time. You can see encouraging progress from your diet or exercise routine. You may be drawn to clean out and reorganize closets, drawers, or file cabinets. Perhaps this is due to a new improvement for your home.
Capricorn: You may be subject to accident at the beginning of this week. Use care with machinery and cars. You are in a somber frame of mind. Decisions in front of you have long-term consequences, so you do not want to make mistakes. Aspects favor teaching, writing, communications.
Aquarius: Equipment failures early in the week may cause an accident. Use caution. You may feel aggressive or prone to pick fights. The advice is: Don't. Even if you are in the right, you will lose if you attack another now. If someone attacks you, you may defend yourself readily.
