(February 19 – March 19, ’20)

Friendships, small groups, collaborative efforts, music, artistic and cultural activities will play a meaningful role in your life this month; it’s a time for participating in cooperative interactions and joining up with those who share similar interests, ideals and visions.  Don’t stay home — instead, get out & mingle (especially on 2/23 (New Moon), 25 & 3/8.  You could make some meaningful contacts through taking classes or workshops, traveling or getting involved with sports activities on 2/20, 22, 28, 3/11, 14 & 19.  You’ll want to take some time out from your socializing to deal with your personal projects around 3/9 (Full Moon); keep your life in balance.

While Mercury is retrograde (through 3/9), you may want to re-evaluate your circle of friends & group involvements; ask yourself if they’re making a positive contribution to your life.  Know your boundaries and avoid getting sucked into the middle of other people’s problems.  You may want to review your personal or professional goals between 3/4 & 15; you could be asked to take on a leadership role or receive some unexpected public recognition.

With Venus, your ruling planet, in ARIES (since 2/7), life has been more intense than usual.  You’ve likely been busily involved with cleaning, sorting, filing and purging projects; think twice before tossing things on 2/23, 28 & 3/3, however.  Once Venus settles down in TAURUS on 3/4, things will ease up and life gets sweeter.  Pamper yourself and beautify your immediate environment; bring flowers & greenery into your personal space.  Don’t be surprised if your home becomes the center of social activity, especially on 3/8; your friends will seek you out for your supportive & comforting energy.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a renewed spirit of adventure, expansiveness and optimism while Pluto is in the sign CAPRICORN (20082024).  During this inspiring 16-year cycle, you’ll be exploring new territory, extending your vistas and communicating with others on a global scale – the world is your playground!  Travel, education, writing, publishing, marketing & promotional matters will take top priority.  Your belief systems will undergo a transformational process, as you’ll be investigating higher levels of consciousness and seeking greater understanding of your place in the cosmic scheme of things.  Maintain a positive outlook, stay in integrity with yourself and your ideals, and – most of all – tell the truth!

While Neptune transits PISCES (2012-2026), a subtle shift is taking place within your social life.  During this 14-year cycle, outgrown friendships & alliances will be dissolving, making way for those who deeply share similar interests, ideals, visions & spiritual values. Expect some mystical, magical connections! You may find yourself participating more in music, art and cultural activities during this transit.

Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you’ll begin to express yourself in more original, unconventional ways and live with greater freedom and spontaneity in your everyday life.  During this 7-year cycle, you’re being challenged to get off the beaten path, step out of your comfort zones and explore alternative approaches in living your life.  Do things differently!

Travel, education, writing, publishing, philosophy & religion, politics, international affairs & marketing will be taken more seriously while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20).  Foreign destinations may have a special appeal for you, as well as serious studies, perhaps involving different religions, cultures or languages.  You may choose to incorporate yoga, meditation, tai chi or acupuncture into your regimen.  During this 3-year cycle, you’ll be inspired to re-evaluate your belief systems, restructure your modes of communication and practice what you preach.  It’s the time to solidify your understanding of the world and develop greater trust in the universe!

With Jupiter now in CAPRICORN since 12/2/19, you are ready for a major uplift.  It will be the time to stretch your legs & spread your wings — an expansive, optimistic and positive outlook will infuse your life!  You’ll be inspired to travel, learn, teach, write, publish or promote yourself & your ideas.  Adventure awaits you – shoot for the stars!  You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (12/12/071/5/09).
