(February 18 – March 20, ’18)

Friendships, small groups, collaborative efforts 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.  Socializing can bring many benefits your way, so don’t stay home — get out & mingle (especially on 2/21, 25, 27-28, 3/1-2, 4, 11, 13 & 17).  Know your boundaries, however, and avoid getting sucked into the middle of other people’s problems around 2/25, 28 & 3/1 (Full Moon).  Instead, set aside time for your personal projects.

Once Venus, your ruling planet, leaves dreamy PISCES and moves on to fiery ARIES on 3/6 (along with Mercury), you’ll be ready to get busy sorting, filing and finishing up some projects.  Set up efficient systems, reorganize work & health matters and put your house in order.  Purge and clear the decks!  You may experience an obstacle or delay on 3/10 or 13, but you’ll push through it quickly and be back in balance by 3/19.

You’ve been putting lots of effort into business matters, joint finances, mortgages, loans, taxes, insurance or legal matters lately; some important financial or contractual issue could be handled very expeditiously around 3/11.  From 3/17 on (for the next 2 months), you’ll be ready to lighten your load and expand your horizons.  An adventurous spirit will inspire you to travel, learn new things, catch up on your reading and explore the universe!

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.

While Uranus is in ARIES (20102019), you’ll be exposed to advanced technologies, progressive methods and alternative approaches in work & health matters.  During this “7-year itch,” you’ll be developing new techniques, inventing unique systems & researching offbeat subjects.  It’s time for redefining priorities, clarifying your motives and clearing away any self-defeating behavior patterns or emotional debris.  Release the past in preparation for an enlightening change in lifestyle once Uranus makes its initial entry into TAURUS (5/1511/6/18).  You’ll begin to express yourself in more original, unconventional ways and live with greater freedom and spontaneity in your everyday life.  Get off the beaten path and explore alternative approaches!

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 SCORPIO (10/10/17−11/7/18), partnerships and teamwork interactions will inspire much personal growth.  It’s time to join forces rather than going it alone — together, much can be accomplished!  By aligning with positive, knowledgeable and uplifting individuals, you can lighten your load and free up your energy.  You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (10/25/0511/23/06).

Once Jupiter moves on to SAGITTARIUS on 11/8/18, it will be advantageous for you to join with others in mutually-beneficial financial or contractual agreements.  Make sure your alignments are with those who share similar values & ethical standards.
