(February 18 – March 20, ’18)
You could find yourself assuming positions of power, leadership and public visibility this month. It’s a time to set personal & professional goals, take control of your life and follow your dreams, particularly on 2/21, 25, 27-28, 3/1-2, 4, 11, 13 & 17. You can be highly successful in whatever you set your mind to these days; in career matters, go straight to the top and don’t hesitate to ask for what you want! Proceed with caution, however, on 2/25, 28 & 3/1 (Full Moon) – set aside equal time for the domestic side of your life and make sure your foundations and support systems are solid before leaping into the unknown.
With Mercury – your planet – in PISCES as this solar month begins, your imagination and fantasies can take you a long way; pay close attention to dreams, as they could reveal some important information. At the same time, be as clear as possible in your communications, as you could be subject to misunderstandings, confusion or illusions. On 3/6, Mercury leaps into ARIES, along with Venus, and your life will begin to intensify and speed up. You’re ready to do things you’ve never done before – and have some fun in the process! Your social life will bring pleasure and useful contacts; by joining up with those who share your interests & ideals, new doors can swing open for you. Be cautious in your interactions, however, on 3/10 & 13, and don’t mix friends & finances. By the 19th, your relationships will be back in balance.
Partnerships and teamwork interactions have been more potent lately; with Mars in SAGITTARIUS (your opposite sign). By joining forces, mutual goals can be achieved. A significant relationship could be firing up by 3/11. From 3/17 on (for the next 2 months), it will be necessary to take care of business. Taxes, debts & obligations, insurance, joint finances or legal matters could require your disciplined & conscientious attention.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’ll be actively exploring new and creative ways to take care of business while Pluto transits CAPRICORN (2008–2024). During this 16-year cycle, you’ll be eliminating outworn structures, habits & relationships from your life, making way for new joint ventures and resurrected possibilities. Business partnerships, financial & parental obligations, insurance, taxes and legal matters could require periodic attention & follow-through. You could find yourself managing other people’s money & resources, setting up corporations, trusts, wills or retirement plans, receiving an inheritance or renewing vows.
A subtle, yet significant shift in your personal & professional goals will occur while Neptune is in PISCES (2012–2026). You’re highly charismatic now and could achieve career success in such fields as politics, film-making, photography, health, spiritual healing, music or the arts. By aligning with your spiritual purpose & honoring your vision, your dreams can become realized!
With Uranus in ARIES (2011–2019), your social life has been quite spontaneous & unpredictable; friends can enter or depart your life unexpectedly. You can expect to meet some unique, unorthodox & revolutionary characters during this 7-year cycle! Look for opportunities to participate in joint creative projects and collaborative efforts − join up with those who share your interests & ideals. Once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/15−11/6/18), you’ll be developing new skills & techniques, inventing unique methodologies and researching offbeat subjects. It will be the time for redefining priorities, clarifying your motives and clearing away any self-defeating behavior patterns or emotional debris.
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20), you will be called on to take care of business — joint finances, legal partnerships, insurance, taxes and contractual matters will require your responsible attention. With patience, self-discipline and conscientious effort, much of long-term value can be accomplished. Responsible management of shared finances & resources will be required of you. It could be a good period to refinance, take out a loan or pay off a debt, make a long-term investment, prepare a will or consult with a financial planner. This will be an important time for taking care of business; be wise, frugal and realistic.
With Jupiter now in SCORPIO (10/10/17−11/7/18), it’s time to direct your enthusiasm into work and health matters. Make your workplace a more positive, inspiring place to be; find ways to challenge personnel, implement progressive procedures or technologies, and improve communications with co-workers. This is an optimal year to upgrade your health and habits; you will be lucky in finding helpful doctors & practitioners if you need them. Exercise, relaxation techniques, meditation and a spiritual practice could be especially beneficial to your well-being, along with pets. You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (10/25/05 –11/23/06).
Once Jupiter moves on to SAGITTARIUS (your opposite sign) on 11/8/18, partnerships and teamwork interactions could inspire much personal growth. This will be the time to join forces rather than going it alone; be on the lookout for positive, knowledgeable and adventurous individuals who can expand your world!
