ARIES: The time of reflection you've experienced regarding career, marriage and life direction becomes clearer as you gain insights that are valuable and life affirming. Next steps in your home life and soul foundations need to be strong to feed your outward public connections. You are piecing it together and the next cycle involves your deepest held goals and desires. The Manifestation process is strongly in progress while you continue to tend to your inner realities allowing steppingstones to be built which pave the way towards March's career and home developments.
TAURUS: Reconsideration's have been well served in the development of your higher self aligning with your daily connections. Your communications are strengthening - writing, speaking, educating, traveling; while building in your personal voice and values. Opportunities appear and continue to grow through April. The next step in your journey is how to bring this outward into the world through your vocation and public services. Bridges are developing between your passionate goals and cooperative partnerships. Support from others strengthens into the March time period when outward manifestations are undeniably entering an external birthing time.
GEMINI: Passion grows and multiplies over the next several weeks. A time of personal auditing has been under review in your psychology/sexuality and financial resources for the past several weeks and now you gather momentum. Another cycle enters inviting you to connect internally (gestate/focus intention) on publishing, media, travel, spiritual development and publicizing your talents to a broader audience. Gather data and your heartfelt thoughts through the month of February - no need to decide, push, nor rush. Desire to be of authentic service is your fuel - trust it and take your time.
CANCER: A period of retrospection is culminating. Cooperative partnerships may not have felt so cooperative over the past several weeks but being left to your own devices and support systems has a clarifying effect. Values sharpen and redefine themselves and at the heart of the energy is the need to negotiate between two sides of self, and between you and another. Opportunities will be opening up over the next several weeks for achieving some heartfelt desires. You know what you want and need to allow source energy to point the way through the February period. Another cycle of review and inner connection commences regarding resources - sexual, emotional and financial. A long held conviction is on it's way out as a belief is passing away and being released in order to update your emotional filing system.
LEO: Prolific amounts of focus have been brewing in the areas of health - both mental/spiritual and physical health. Integrating your inner development with your external experience is the art form now. Life gets a bit easier in the day to day, the work environment and with fellow coworkers. Your inner world is building bridges deep within your soul, healing the past and increasing your sense of well-being. A review period begins in the area of partnership, as others retreat you have the time and space to reflect upon your connections and agreements (both spoken and unspoken) in cooperative partnership. Much will be moving forward in your external world come March.
VIRGO: So much has been happening internally in your heart pulses, children connections, romantic leanings and creative efforts. As Venus stops dead in her tracks on Friday and slowly begins to inch her way forward, the effects over the next several weeks will be an increased connection with personal values, confident self-expression, and a steadying affirmation of your value and worth. The desire for expansion in money and intimacy deserves a chance to slowly build and balance with your own personal resources. Work and health related matters are entering a period of review and revision. Be time conservative with deadlines and revisit edicts put forth by health or healing professionals over the next few weeks.
LIBRA: Realities are coming to the fore regarding resources and home situations. An expenditure may be necessary in relation to home repair, a move, or the needs of a family member. On March 4th Venus clears her retrograde shadow and Jupiter prepares to move direct in the home oriented sign of Cancer. Clarity is yours and you will know what to do and where to invest your time and energy. Your heart is the focus over the next several weeks as Mercury retrogrades back into your 5th house of passion and love. Healing energy is here this week as you lovingly apply your resources to your life work. Ceres enters your 2nd house of talents and financial resources strongly influencing your emotions and inner life.
SCORPIO: Passionate encounters of the mental kind are due for increase as Venus turns direct and Sappho, the asteroid of erotica and eloquence, influences your 3rd house of writing, speaking and communications. Everyday life and connections are due to pick up and validate the value you bring to the table in your daily life and contacts. Heart connections are increasing in the form of a creative idea, a romantic desire and the younger generations influence. This is a process that continues to take on shape and electricity. March is a time of movement and manifestation, just keep those internal flames fanned and hearty. A cycle of personal review in your home, soul development, living situation and family connections is encouraged to be nurtured throughout the month of February. Relieve yourself of any pressure to decide, agree or purchase.
SAGITTARIUS: Allow for sorting time as Venus moves direct in the area of earnings, movable goods and talents. More resources/money may be coming your way but there is some balancing required between others (company, spouse, government, family inheritance), expansion/support, and personal realities regarding personal resources. This may also allude to investments and insurance needs vs. what you have on hand to contribute. Money owed may be coming in and you are encouraged to stave off final agreements (written or spoken) and fresh initiatives in education/writing/car purchases. Gather your information knowing that the time for "confident" agreements and plans arrives mid-March.
CAPRICORN: A poignant time for all relationships matters as Venus moves direct after a 6 week period of review of personal values and important connections. The Jupiter Pluto opposition (oppositions are most frequently experienced as coming from outside ourselves) asks you to take into account others wishes through cooperative effort, while being mindful of any need to overpower or overwrite their concerns and desires. Sappho enters your sign this week upping the ante in your desire for passionate contact (through April 13th) while handling this in a mutually beneficial way for all and any parties concerned. A ripe time for review regarding your resources and earnings commences with the Mercury retrograde through your 2nd house. Culminations arrive mid-March.
AQUARIUS: Revisiting your romantic past? I hope you found some useful insights to apply to your current connections. Venus turns direct in your 12th house of past loves, spiritual awareness and health. If you've been overindulging in ghost like apparitions you can get a firmer grip on the present day over the next few weeks prior to Venus's entrance into your sign on March 6th. Mercury is also joining in on the review period as he begins his backward slide in your 2nd house of "what do you value" and retrogrades "back" into your sign on February 12th. Also, you are fresh on the heels of a initiating New Moon in your sign while understanding that there are some things to reconsider and reevaluate while attempting to keep you thinking focused on the present. Health is also important now. How is your mind functioning and how does that connect with and affect your physical health and well-being?
PISCES: Take your time connecting to your future and your dreams as Venus stops dead in the sky this Friday after a long sojourn back through your 11th house of pals and dream-weaving. She starts to gain traction but won't come to her full power until the first week of March JUST when your co-ruler Jupiter begins to wake up from HIS review period in your 5th house of passion and open hearted energy - trust the time frame and connection. Remember, the first part of 2014 is all about the gestation and "then" manifestation process. External events and developments will be ripe in March as Mercury is also getting in on the "let me think things through a bit" action as he retrogrades in your 1st house and then slips back into the spirit driven 12th. Expect a social or group connection to set your mind in motion as to how best satiate a demand or need.
