ASTROLOGY: FEB 17 – FEB 24, 2018

ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
As the Sun moves into Pisces early this week, so existence conspires to grab you by the horns and take you into deeper waters. Your adventures always go akimbo when you over-ride your sensitivity, so life is now going to give you an object lesson in sensitivity. This once you must surrender.

TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
Communication is the most important thing in the world. The problem is, with Mercury moving into Pisces, when we try to talk, all that happens is we end up blowing bubbles. You are body focussed, hence highly skilled in the art of non-verbal communication. Share what you know.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
As Mercury moves into Pisces, where he joins up with four other planets and an asteroid, the sharp edges are going to be taken away from the art of communication. You can forget crystal clarity for a month. It’s not going to be there. Dive into the world of poetry, deep feeling and imagination.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
You are presently obsessed with how to be yourself; original, unabashed and unbeholden to anybody else’s vision of how you should be. This is an appropriate obsession. With five planets and an asteroid moving through Pisces, there is support for feeling, imagination and silence.

LEO (July 23 – Aug 22)
As long as you keep your head down and focus on what you need to do in the immediate moment, you will benefit from an increase in skill level. It doesn’t matter what you do. Over-think things, or imagine you are ready to parade your new work on the open stage, and you’ll veer off track.

VIRGO (Aug 23 – Sept 22)
As five planets and an asteroid cruise through the vast mysterious depths of Pisces, you have got your work cut out for you – particularly in relationships. Nothing is going to make a lot of sense unless you put aside all that you know and listen carefully. Give others the space to speak.

LIBRA (Sept 23 – Oct 23)
This is a good time to contemplate regeneration. Notice how nature keeps rekindling the life force. Changes are afoot. They are not loud shifts. They are changes moving by the grace of deep, silent, hidden currents. Listen to the knowledge you harbour in your belly. Give your head a break.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21)
As the Sun moves into Pisces early in the week, so you feel like you are once again on the right track. Jupiter has been doing a lot of work to rearrange your inner and outer worlds, giving you more of a sense of space and possibility. Optimism, briefly forgotten, is being returned to you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Mars has shifted into a particularly active and impulsive part of Sagittarius. This is tricky, as pretty much every second other planet is presently floating in the immovable depths of Pisces. As much as you would like to move things along, to move the ocean is impossible. Know your limits.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
With so much planetary activity in Pisces right now, this is a good week to exercise your capacity for patience and endurance. Pisces is the ocean. The ocean can’t be manipulated. One has to wait – and attune oneself to its ebbs and flows. You can do this. This skill will now serve you well.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
The Sun and Mercury are slowly slipping out of Aquarius. Their effect is diminishing. Life is just a little less phrenetic. There is a smidgen less emphasis on you having to show your wares. Don’t push against what is. This is cooling off time, so let yourself cool off. You have nothing to prove.

PISCES (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
The Sun and Mercury arrive in Pisces early this week. They join Venus, Neptune, Chiron and the Moon. There’s no chance with all these visitors that you will be able to slip along under the surface, unseen. Rise to circumstance. Proudly show off your face, your insight and your deep love.
