(February 19 – March 19, ’20)
Your creative juices will be flowing this month! A strong desire to start up a new hobby, project, business venture or romance is welling up within you – follow your fantasies and manifest your dreams, particularly on 2/23 (New Moon), 28, 3/8 & 16. It’s time to pioneer new concepts, take some risks and have fun – allow your inner child out to play. You’re in an enterprising phase, so try out some things you’ve never done before! Take others into consideration, however, before you jump in headfirst; look before you leap around 3/9 (Full Moon)!
Considering that Mercury is retrograde (through 3/9), you’ll want to keep in mind that you may not see things clearly during this period. Avoid putting yourself under too much stress or pressure; review your project or business plan before making that final commitment. Mars—your planet—has been in CAPRICORN since 2/16, intensifying your desire for manifesting something long-term & permanent. Make sure that joint finances, business partnerships, taxes, insurance or contractual matters are under control before jumping in with both feet! You could easily handle some of these issues effectively on 2/21, 24-25 & 3/14.
From 3/4 on, partnerships and teamwork interactions can bring much pleasure & comfort to you. Your primary relationship could be especially sweet (and sizzling on 3/8) — or if you’re in the market for someone new & exciting, you can expect some fun surprises that day! Equality, mutuality and consensus will be necessary requirements to build a successful partnership during this month ahead. Communication holds another important key; be clear, as well as patient, in explaining your ideas and asking for what you want.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’re experiencing a mental metamorphosis these days! A significant transformation will be taking place in ways you think, communicate and perceive the world while Pluto is in CAPRICORN (2008–2024). Realizing that the world around you is changing rapidly, you will find yourself questioning conventional wisdom and challenging previously-held perspectives. There are new rules for playing the game of life these days – and as usual, you’ll want to get on top of things. Limiting beliefs, opinions & outlooks that no longer serve your personal growth are in a process of being purged during this 16-year cycle. A wide variety of interests may grab your attention, particularly those that have practical application and can help to improve your financial situation. Classes, networking activities, the Internet, local media, short trips and contacts with relatives & neighbors could become major sources of mental stimulation.
On 2/3/12, Neptune settled in to its own sign, PISCES, where it will stay for the upcoming 14 years. Your creativity will be reawakening during these upcoming years, expressing itself in inspired, imaginative & inventive ways. A desire to start up a new hobby, project or business venture could fire up your fantasies; your love life could bring you the fulfillment of your wildest dreams. Allow your inner child to come out to play – fun and pleasure await you! Children may take on increased importance, showing you the way to renewal and joy!
Now that Uranus has begun its 7-year cycle in your opposite sign, TAURUS (May ’18 to September ’25), you will begin to free up from outgrown patterns of relating to others. It is the time to release any partnerships that are inhibiting your personal growth, and open your life to one-on-one relationships based on equality & mutual support. You can expect some unusual, enlightened and progressive individuals to be entering your life! If your relationship is a healthy, constructive and supportive one, you’ll be evolving to a higher level of togetherness. If you haven’t been getting what you need, then this will be the time to open up the communication channels and confront the issues – or make a clean break and move on. If you’re currently single, open yourself to the possibility of an equable & comfortable match—much personal growth can occur through the right alignment!
You will become more mentally-disciplined, realistic & purposeful while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20). During this 3-year cycle, it’s the ideal time to apply yourself to some serious studies, writing, teaching or networking activities. Avoid getting caught up in negative thinking and, instead, take responsibility for your thoughts and communications, as they will have more impact than usual. With patience and committed efforts, you’ll be able to accomplish whatever you put your mind to!
With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, this is a year for you to crawl out of your shell and get back into circulation — variety is the spice of life! It’s an ideal year ahead for studying, writing, teaching, networking and taking some trips. Your mind is fertile, sharp & inquisitive, so challenge yourself to develop some new mental pursuits and stretch your fine intellect! You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (12/12/07 – 1/5/09).
