New Horoscopes for the Week of Feb. 19th – 25th


A very fortunate aspect in play until October of this year is triggered on Thursday. The aspect is a Jupiter in Capricorn/Neptune in Pisces sextile. Something expansive involving a reward for hard work, determination, and staying grounded and focused in the real world supports a (personal) spiritual evolution. Maybe you’ve learned a hard lesson or paid off a karmic debt. A blockage dissolves. Dreams come true. Visions manifest. You might get an inkling this week of what this eight-month long, three-step process will entail.

Also on Thursday, Feb. 20th Mars in Capricorn trines Uranus in Taurus. Mars’ desire for achievement and success/power and control is facilitated by an ongoing release from old norms, values, rules, and traditions. You’re timing is likely to be exceptionally good, landing you in the right place at the right time. The odds of having a beneficial long shot (something you’ve never considered to be a realistic possibility – might suddenly materialize. The impact could change your life direction in significant ways.

On Friday February 21st, Mars in Capricorn squares Chiron in Aries. Something painful will be revived as you’re challenged to take on heavy responsibilities, to lead, and to deliver what you promised you could deliver. Old vulnerabilities kick in. Something disciplined and realistic requiring effort, persistence, and courage gets you through.

We’re moving closer to the end of wash-out phase that accompanied the January 9th full Moon in Leo. It looks something like the diminishment of pride, ego related concerns, and “it’s all about me-ness.” You’re left with the potential for something more responsive compassionate to the needs of those you serve. Fertile new ground invites you plant the seed of a new beginning on Sunday, Feb. 23rd. That’s when a new Moon at 4 degrees of Pisces culminates. Something involving the services you provide and how you provide them is advanced.

(I’ll write more on the details later this week.)

Mercury is newly moving in retrograde motion in the sign of Pisces. It’s once again time to reconsider and rethink issues related to self-sacrifice, secrets, habits and routines that undermine you, fantasies and pre-occupations that distort what’s real.

The Sun, newly in the sign of Pisces (as of yesterday) softly illuminates and gently energizes endings. Opportunities to serve, to forgive, to inspire, and to de-code intuitive information shift your attention in a more compassionate, responsive direction.

ARIES (March 21-April 21)
The Sun’s entrance into your 12th house triggers endings and a cleaning/clearing phase in preparation for a new year long, solar cycle that begins on March 20th. It can be thought of as your personal New Year. Your likely to be reviewing what the past year has brought into your life and where you want to go from here. Baggage that’s accumulated since March 20th of 2019 needs to be unloaded. The goal is to be light on your feet and free to move in the most promising new direction. Your intuition is especially strong over the next month. Whatever you sense is no longer useful, relevant, or strong enough to survive for another year can be released. Between now and next October you’ll be given an opportunity to actualize a dream – probably related to your career or your drive for success. This might be fairly effortless. The universe would like to reward you for going above and beyond in some regard – for taking responsibility, doing the work, and learning what you needed to learn through challenging experience. Your “reward” is in the process of materializing through a three step process that is complete in october of this year. This week Mars squares Black Moon and Chiron. Something awkward related to initiation triggers old vulnerabilities and pain. But Mars in the focused, hardworking sign of Capricorn also trines Uranus. Long shots materialize.

TAURUS (April 21-May 21)
Mars trines Uranus in Taurus this week. That’s a big deal for your sign. An unexpected stroke of luck related to your role within relationships and your future – love, the initiation of something new – possibly a financial benefit – sets you free. But something related to parental pain is an issue. It requires some emotional adjustment and re-focusing but not the kind that throws you off your game with regard to truthful communication, connection, and the pursuit of something more emotionally satisfying for yourself. Behind the scenes you’re being bold and courageous where love is an issue. That might look like a hands-off approach to trying to control what you ultimately cannot control. There some hidden, behind-the-scenes stress that requires extra care and attention to your health, the nature of your routines, and responsibilities. A reconsideration of the responsibilities you’ve taken on, your workload, and your relationships may be in play through May 28th of this year. By October your persistent faith in yourself, the future, and the goodness of the universe could result in the fulfillment of a life-long dream.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)
Mercury retrograde could have you newly focused on retrieving something from the past in order to achieve the kind of success you want to achieve – or in order to play the kind of role you want to play within the public realm. Mercury retrograde can take you back to a more magical, powerful, or intuitively tuned-in time when you were free to interpret the signs of impending change or to do what needed to be done in order to promote healing. A move backward toward something more deeply sourced and deeply satisfying with regard to public role requires you to recapture some of the magic you lost along the way. What you contribute to the world may require a degree of self-sacrifice and constant vigilance regarding underlying motivations. If you feel you’re being invisibly guided along a fascinating path you’re probably on the right track. But if you feel alone, adrift, and depleted it may be time to consider a (career) change. Something related to the transformational work you’ve done enables a dream to fully materialize by October of this year. Some kind of parental or existential pain (birth, loss, death, rebirth) moves you unexpectedly into new territory. It seems unwise to abort a move in the direction of something more emotionally satisfying. You may continue to rethink your relationship commitments or your commitment to something more balanced within the realm of love, romance, or something involving children/child care issues. A resolution can be expected by May 28th.

CANCER (June 21-July 21)
The Sun’s move into your expansive 9th house may bring opportunities related to travel, publishing, higher education, or legal involvements motivated by compassion. Something gentle but powerful encourages you to use your intuition and instincts to expand into the adventurous unknown. If you’ve been playing it safe and sticking with what you know you might begin to feel the weight of that personal sacrifice. Fortunately something expansive involving a reward for hard work and focus within the realm of relationships supports a personal advancement or spiritual evolution. Maybe you’ve learned a hard lesson or paid off a karmic debt. A blockage dissolves. Dreams come true. Visions manifest. You might get an inkling this week of what this eight-month long, three-step process will entail. Between now and May 28th you’ll be rethinking the nature of your relationship with family or your relationship history in general. Some existential or parental pain unexpectedly arises and may require a difficult (transformative) emotional adjustment. Keep moving toward what feels most emotionally satisfying, Something unexpectedly fortunate within a group or social situation materializes. It’s related to bold, responsible, courageous action (enforcing the rules) within the realm of relationships.

LEO (July 21-Aug 21)
The Pisces Sun newly in your 8th house of financial partnerships, deep transformational change, and brutal honesty provides fertile ground for something new. Power imbalances need to be (or are in the process of being) corrected but that normally involves something painful – like pulling teeth. Now the situation may be different. A very fortunate aspect in play until October of this year is triggered on Thursday – the Jupiter in Capricorn/Neptune in Pisces sextile. Something fortunate involving a reward for hard work, an adherence to high standards, or a determination to promote something healthier supports a personal spiritual evolution. Advancement is the result of hard lessons learned, or making “the final payment” on an outstanding karmic debt. You’ve likely cultivated some fertile ground for something of value to take root within the realm of financial partnerships – or within the realm of intimacy. By October of this year a life-long dream or vision for your life may be realized. You might get an inkling this week of what this eight-month long, three-step process will entail. Parental pain might continue to influence relationships and to require the cultivation of a closer, more responsive, supportive connection to yourself and your feelings.

VIRGO (August 21-Sep 21)
Your 7th house of relationships – balance, harmony, and compromise – is highlighted and energized this week. Work you’ve done in the past in the interest of self-improvement (something risky possibly) – taking responsibility for cultivating love, romance, or a potentially lucrative business idea may be in the process of being rewarded. Look for relationship endings (an end to a subtle form of abuse) and a compassionate infusion of love (forgiveness) to advantage you and your relationships in important ways. Something aligned with what you dreamed of within the realm of relationships could begin to emerge. A lucky break or exceptional timing moves you in the direction of grown-up love, self-love, or an opportunity to cultivate an exceptionally brilliant idea. Something involving parental pain or loss is revived. Something related to groups or social involvement could move you in the direction of emotional support and satisfaction.

LIBRA (September 21 – October 21)
Rethinking commitments, your approach, and the role you play within the realm of relationships is in progress from now until May 28th. Some old pain or vulnerability may be triggered this week possibly as you review the rules and impossible expectations involved in past relationships. The Jupiter/Neptune sextile triggers a three step manifestation process lasting from now until October when something involving a cherished dream materializes. This may involve improvements to your home situation, your sense of security, and to the solidification of fundamental foundational strength. You may be newly focused on the gentle techniques and methods that heal you – and others. A dissolution or clarification of subtle forms of abuse works in your favor. Parental pain in the love/romance/self expressive realms of life is revived challenging you to continue to move in the most emotionally satisfying direction for you – despite the risk. Bold, direct, courageous actions within the realm of relationships attract to you the kind of internal balance necessary to break from old habits that undermine your security.

SCORPIO (October 21 – November 21)
The work you’ve done to discipline and change your mindset – to control your thoughts, to release something chronically depressing, confining, and/or mentally restrictive, is important. Something more honest and communicative is about to pay off in the form of a surge of love or creative output. Something more satisfying involved strengthening your belief in yourself, preparing for the future, and taking some risk takes hold. It appears you’ve paid your dues and may be on the verge of encountering the kind of love you’ve always dreamed of. Possibly you’ve set yourself free to fully immerse yourself in doing what you love. Subtle forms of abuse may end. Reversals and potential endings deepen your ability to profoundly appreciate and cherish what’s in front of you. Being the voice of authority and speaking the hard truth enhances you ability to experience a lucky break or to accelerate your movement in an emotionally nourishing direction. Parental/family issues necessitate adjustments. Don’t let those sideline your move in more emotionally satisfying directions. Your relationship to challenging routines, responsibilities, and self-sacrifice is quietly being re-assessed.

SAGITTARIUS (November 21- December 21)
There is a three step process involving the manifestation of a vision for your life or a life-long dream in progress from now until October of 2020. It’s now possible because you’ve done the work that needed to be done, paid off a karmic debt, or remained focused and determined when you were tempted to give up. The dream may involve something having to do with your home, your future, finances, and financial freedom. Something that required faith in yourself and your dreams advantages you this year. Something more emotionally satisfying may relate to your disciplined approach to working within the parameters of a partnership – considering the emotional needs of a partner at the expense of immediate gratification. An unexpected contact or connection with an old source of parental pain involving distancing and alienation requires you to continue to move forward in the direction thats most emotionally satisfying for you. It seems related financial partnerships, trust, and achieving deeper levels of intimacy. A lucky break seems related to responsible action and your consistent reliability.

CAPRICORN (December 21-January 21)
The difficult disciplined work you’ve done to keep your fear from restricting you in ways that profoundly impact a partner are in the process of being rewarded. Maybe things are already much improved. But by next October you may be gifted with the kind of spiritual evolution that sets you free of an old restrictive mindset. In your head you’ll be free to go where you want to go – to envision what you most desire rather than what you most fear. Rules for what you would allow yourself to consider in the past will be broken as your future opens up before you. Adventurous new beginnings will no longer be automatically dismissed or censored. Anything is possible. This week as the result of persistent courageous action in the face of minimal reassurance of anything lasting or permanent something reassuring and unexpectedly fortunate within the realm of love emerges. Partners continue to move you in a more emotionally satisfying direction. By October you’ll be free to expand in the direction you want to go.

AQUARIUS (January 21-February 21)
The Jupiter/Neptune sextile initiates a three step process designed to move you toward financial freedom, stability, and a cherished dream by October of this year. A softer, gentler, kinder environment materializes if you let your intuitive feelings, invisible guidance, timely messaging, and creative impulses take hold. Something magically transcendent moves you along. It’s like floating down a river – effortless. Attempts to take control and steer the ship could work against you. Doing what you feel like doing (as long as it’s not criminal or destructive) is the best course of action. Existential or parental pain has been revived income way. It lives within you as a background issue but can cause some pain. Something challenges you to choose forgiveness, protectiveness, love, and compassion. You may not be there yet. Self-protection may take precedence. But something unexpectedly fortunate related to home and family could be in the works. Until May 28th you continue to review relationship commitments that relate to your future. Something is clarified by May 28th that allows you to move forward.
