February 12, 2016
the Moon in Aries all day, our reactions are quick and decisive. The more
impatient side of this Moon position is likely to come to the fore this morning,
when the Moon forms a square with Pluto and aligns with Uranus. We can
accomplish more if we are careful not to be too hasty. Our feelings and desires
are fiery, immediate, and hard to ignore. The Sun and Moon harmonize this
evening, and we can enjoy increased clarity derived from a feeling that what we
want and what we need are in harmony. We are more able to cooperate with others
under this influence.
Socially, you're in a fine position virtually all month, dear Aries. Interactions are favorable, and you can make good use of your diplomacy skills in your career and networking activities. Romance may be found through your career, business activities,
and later, group settings and networking efforts in February. The 9th is particularly strong for personal appeal.
While you're friendly and pleasant this month, Mars is currently intensifying your emotions and turning your attention to the hidden or deep elements of your life. This is an important process that shouldn't be rushed or undervalued, but it does seem to keep you working behind the scenes and not always very "present" in your social life.
Take advantage of the 2-3, when a strong desire to improve, grow, and make deep, long-lasting changes is with you. You are blessed with the ability to think ahead to the long term game plan. Long-term goals might become clearer, and your sense of priorities is strong. This is about living a life that is more authentic and that better reflects your deeper needs and wants.
You might seek out support for a project or clinch a deal now. Watch that you don't push something too hard or become your own worst enemy on the 7th, when your desires seem to clash with your current plans. Competitive or frustrating elements in your relationships may also surface now.
Benefits in the material world are likely on the 8-9. A positive, progressive attitude towards work can also improve health, and you could experience a revival of interest in projects or a particular life path that excites you. In some way, blockages seem to disappear right now, and you can see that there's a way through. Being of both a practical and optimistic frame of mind benefits you all around, and decisions tend to be strong as a result. Around the 13th, you may be actively involved in research or especially enthused about finding an answer to a problem. This is another good time for big-picture thinking and making plans, and a wonderful time to set a project into motion. In fact, after the New Moon on the 8th and up to the 13th, you might decide to launch a new
project. The New Moon speaks to your enterprising nature and to your dreams and aspirations. This can be a good time for new technological endeavors.
On the 19th, the Sun moves into your privacy sector for a month-long trek. This yearly event precedes your powerful birthday month and is an important time for taking a good look at what attitudes, circumstances, and extra dead weight that need to go before you begin anew. Your spiritual needs come into strong play now, particularly around the 24-28.
You are likely to become aware of possible insecurities and feelings of unworthiness that could be interfering with putting your best effort forward in your work this month, and this is likely to peak around the 22-23. You are in the middle of an important opportunity period for making health and work improvements, making it a good idea to recognize those insecurities that are holding you back from pursuing more vibrant health and/or better working conditions.
The last week of the month opens your eyes to a work or health matter that needs your attention. This is a good time to seek out advice, help, and guidance now that you are more fully in touch with what you want to pursue.
The year ahead is strong for doing important ground work, expanding a
business or major project, improving your health, and, in the last quarter of
the year, attracting a helpful, possibly wise, partner into your life, or
improving and enhancing an existing relationship. Forming a new alliance can be
in focus for some, and for others, strengthening a current one brings joy and
Until September, take every opportunity to expand and improve the work you do
and your daily routines, at least up until the point of excess. This can be a
time when you find truly suitable doctors, stumble upon the right information
that helps you heal, and get especially good health care. Work is available to
you, sometimes in excess. However, you're making improvements that help boost
your confidence and joy in what you're doing.
Intimacy and/or financial matters can be a challenge, especially in the month
of June, but also an area of important life lessons. Financially speaking, this
is not about your income but about monies owed or shared with others. These are
areas of flux and change, and you'd be wise to try to settle debts as much as
While there is unlikely to be any shortage of work to do, the first half of
the year can frustrate at times with your ruler, Mars, retrograde. Officially,
this occurs from April 17 to June 29, but there is always a shadow period to
deal with in the weeks surrounding the proper dates of retrograde periods. Mars is spending an unusual amount of time in your intimacy sector
in the first seven months of the year. You will be
learning a lot about yourself and a partner during this time. This can be
animated time, when there can be struggles with the balance of power in a close
relationship. Some of you could be struggling with
matters of trust, passion, and possibly betrayal (more likely fear of betrayal)
in a partnership in June. Others may be frustrated that they can't yet move
exciting plans forward. The Full Moon on April 22nd occurs towards the beginning
of the Mars retrograde period, confounding matters, and heightening emotions
surrounding these issues. It can bring an intimate matter to light. Work on anger issues
regarding a spouse, intimacy, debts, and obligations to others, which can be
sensitive spots for you.
This can also be a time when you're actively trying to publish an important
work, but experiencing delays. Try to treat delays as chances to make
improvements, and you'll end up with a better final product.
This is a great year for getting a whole lot of work done, and the focus
should be on improving, expanding, attention to detail, and more confidence with
what you're doing and producing. You could be developing new products or
redesigning your business, and recognition for your efforts is forthcoming.
There can be wonderful opportunities to hook up with the right people who can
help you to grow your business or improve your well-being.
From September 9th forward, you have Jupiter in your relationship sector,
helping you attract truly helpful people into your life - people who tend to
boost your confidence and who might add some cultural or mental flavor to your
life through different perspectives and experiences. For some, partnering can be
a profitable venture now.
This is an excellent period for benefiting from consulting or counseling, for
public relations, and for negotiations in general. You're also taking more
responsibility for improving your skills.
2016 is strong for making lasting improvements. In December, an especially
helpful cycle begins and will be with you for much of 2017. It's a time for
putting your plans into motion as you find concrete channels for expressing
Jupiter continues to enliven your romance sector until mid-August, dear
Aries, and until June, you benefit from Saturn's temporary liberation from your
intimacy sector (Saturn will return here for the summer, however). Particularly
from April 8-June 14, you can experience a nice feeling of freedom when it comes
to expressing your affection, as well as wonderful attention from love
interests. This is not an especially committed time for love, but it's a
beautiful time for experimenting, enjoying yourself, and letting down your hair
in some way.
While April to June is likely to be the biggest period for love and
attraction (with July 1st a potential peak), February brings a real jumpstart to
your personal magnetism as Venus and Mars align in your sign (exact February
22nd). In fact, both Venus, goddess of love and attraction, and Mars, god of
action and sexuality, will travel in your sign from February 20-March 16,
bringing excitement, courage, and sizzle to your manner. This occurs before the
Sun gets to your sign, and at a time when you're not quite ready to start anew.
However, it's certainly a time for feeling your attractive powers.
Once Saturn has firmly left your intimacy sector (in September) and
harmonizes with your sign, you'll feel far less inhibited when it comes to
getting close to someone, although your focus tends to change from this period
forward - work, health, and education tend to take priority. This shift brings
greater stability to your life in general, and also relieves some pressure on
intimate expression, shared finances, and issues of control in a partnership.
Certainly, after almost three years of this, you've learned a lot about your
limits. Some of you have experienced some level of disenchantment regarding
one-to-one relationships. In fact, it has been since late 2009 that partnerships
have gone through tests and trials, and you've learned much about what you want
(and don't want) from close relationships. You may have met the more
unflattering side of people, and possibly of yourself if you struggled with
relationship problems, and now you're moving forward, ideally older and wiser
for it all.
Venus retrogrades for the most part in your romance sector from July
25-September 6, and this can bring some slow downs, reconsideration, and
reflection in your love life. Particularly on August 14-16 and September 1-7,
relationships from the past can be in high focus. There can be a second chance
or connection to the past in the first week of August, but perhaps some
difficulties making choices as well. This retrograde, in fact, comes at an ideal
time as Jupiter ends its transit of this sector and you shift focus and
priorities. It's time to get a little more serious, focused, and ambitious. In
the second half of 2015, work and ambition are emphasized, but also occurring
now is the strongest period for committed partnerships, which happens from
November 8, 2015 to January 3, 2016.
Also pointing to big changes in your relationships is a series of eclipses
along the Aries-Libra axis. The first of this series occurred in October
