Things are relatively quiet now astrologically. But there is always something going on in the heavens that might impact your daily life. On February 18 Saturn will begin to retrograde in Scorpio. This period lasts until July 8. If a situation gets stuck or your plans are blocked there must be a good reason. Many projects slow down under this influence. A lot depends on your current priorities. The retrograde may benefit some of you. Don’t be too ambitious right now. Don’t force issues. Take a break and consider other alternatives. Go within and meditate.
From February 15-19 Mars is trine to stationary Saturn so it is a good time to get work done. Mercury near Mars is also part of this trine and this favors communications. Most people have better judgment and common sense under a good aspect of Mars and Saturn. You can use energy wisely and concentrate better. Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio people will benefit the most.
On February 23 Mercury will retrograde until March 17. You know the drill. Avoid signing papers. Make sure you read all documents carefully. Do research, organize the office and clean out your files. Throw stuff out. Clear the decks for new things. With this happening in Pisces beware of deception. Keep your eyes and ears open.
The Sun enters Pisces on February 18. The Pisces influence will be stronger with the Sun joining Mars, Mercury and Neptune. Some of you will feel like you’re in a fog. You have trouble paying attention especially if you are a water sign. You might change your mind back and forth about something. You will daydream a lot. It could be kind of fun. Just go with the flow. As I said last time, there will be increased creativity, psychic experiences, awakenings or mysteries revealed. Projects and plans will succeed only if you maintain an attitude of kindness and generosity towards others. If your motives are selfish success will be denied. Unusual experiences or unexplained things will happen. Faith and intuition play an important part in the decisions you make this month.
Valentine’s Day is tomorrow. Love one another! Even if you have no significant other at this time spread it around. Give of yourself generously with no thought of reward. Little things mean a lot. Look upon those you meet in passing with a smile and one day it will all come back to you. This works. Trust me. Happy Valentine’s Day!
