Sunday, February 18
We can feel the energetic boost as the Moon blasts into pioneering Aries at 7:04 am EST. Intuitively, we know that it’s time to begin something anew. The enterprising Aries Moon urges us to step into uncharted territory and instills us with the confidence we need to figure it out as we go along. There are five planets visiting indefinite Pisces once the Sun changes signs midday to join the pack, preventing us from being too sure about anything.
Aries Cancer Libra Capricorn
Taurus Leo Scorpio Aquarius
Gemini Virgo Sagittarius Pisces
Aries     Although your unspoken dreams are very vivid today, you don’t have time to explore them. In fact, you might worry that if you succumb to the power of your fantasies, they could hijack your entire day. You may try to create distractions by starting a major project now, but an all-or-nothing policy won’t work because suppressing your unexpressed emotions only empowers them. Find balance by giving equal time to your inner and outer worlds. John Muir wrote, “The power of imagination makes us infinite.”
Taurus     Cosmic signals are directing you to interact with people in your family, community or tribe as you seek to establish connections with like-minded people. But the Moon's shift into independent Aries throws a wrench into the gears of progress, encouraging you to say no to the group so you can seek personal satisfaction on your own. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be an easy solution to this dilemma, so you might need to divide your time between social and private pursuits. There’s no right or wrong way to proceed as long as you continue to listen to your heart.
Gemini     Your professional plans are so vague now that it’s nearly impossible to know what to do next. Thankfully, specific action isn’t necessary until your workweek begins, but unanswerable questions about your future could be consuming your thoughts today. Although you may believe that intervention is required soon, it’s premature to make any permanent decisions. Continue to explore all your options by allowing your daydreams to meander along every possible route. There’s no need to force the issue because making the right choice will come naturally when the time is right.
Cancer     Imagining that your dreams will come true helps to build your confidence today, but the fact is that it really doesn’t matter what happens in the future. The act of consciously conjuring up idealistic visions is sufficient for now. It’s best to avoid making concrete plans yet because a practical approach could place artificial limits on your fantasies. J.M. Barrie, author of “Peter Pan” wrote, “The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.”
Leo     Plunging into the mysteries of life and death can be fascinating at first, but you may grow so overwhelmed with your current exploration that it becomes an obsession. Fortunately, the Moon's presence in your 9th House of Adventure draws you back into the real world where you can reveal the knowledge you discovered on your inward journey. Sharing the treasures with someone special could lead to a deepening of a relationship as long as you don’t pretend to have every answer. President Harry S. Truman wrote, “The only things worth learning are the things you learn after you know it all.”
Virgo     You may be fooling yourself about a relationship and you won’t know the reality of the situation until you check it out with the other person. But proceeding further before you both put your feelings out into the open can lead to heartbreak. Clear communication is fundamental, so make time to delve into the scary emotional realms. Otherwise, the dynamics become too complicated to untangle. Thankfully, your fantasies might actually be corroborated now, empowering you to comfortably move forward with honesty and trust.
Libra     You’re eager to take an emotional risk today, but your faith alone is not a sign of guaranteed success. In fact, it’s healthier to employ a bit of caution before climbing out on a limb. Share your feelings with someone who agrees to listen, but don’t assume that their willingness to hear you out means they will automatically respond according to your expectations. A disappointment later in the day is likely if you move too fast in the wrong direction. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko wrote, “Well-bred people always knock and never enter a room without permission, even if there’s no lock.”
Scorpio     You can fantasize your way through the day so effortlessly that you might not be able to tell you are living in your mind. The advantage of this strategy is that there are no limits to what you can conjure up with your thoughts. However, the disadvantage is that the real world impinges on your idealism sooner or later. The longer you ignore the differences between fact and fancy now, the more discouraging the reality check later. Nevertheless, utilizing your imagination is part of the creative process. Poet Carl Sandburg wrote, “Nothing happens unless first we dream.”
Sagittarius     A quiet day at home is exactly what the doctor ordered today. In fact, a break from your routine could be more rejuvenating than you expect. But it’s hard to ignore your creative urge, so find a way to integrate it into your staycation. Honoring your drive to make something tangible by the end of the day is the frosting on the cake. A conscious retreat from the noisy humdrum of your social life can also be productive if you balance your time between work and play.
Capricorn     You’re known to calculate all the variables, so you have the best odds of reaching the summit. But your ambitions are in jeopardy while the impulsive Aries Moon triggers your desire to run to the top of the mountain without considering how long it will take or what supplies you may need to survive. Your existential dilemma is whether you should act now or later. Obviously, the sooner you begin, the sooner you will achieve your goal. But you might face a setback if you rush forward before all the pieces are in place. Robin Sharma wrote, “Dream big. Start small. Begin now.”
Aquarius     You may have unrealistic aspirations about making money, but without trying you will never know what could happen. However, your success is not far off in the future or to be found at the distant edges of the cosmos. It is right here and right now. You owe it to yourself to step beyond your comfort zone while the impetuous Aries Moon travels through your 3rd House of Immediate Environment. Stephen King wrote, “Amateurs sit and wait for inspiration, the rest of us just get up and go to work.”
Pisces     Your unworldly leanings are more obvious to others than ever before. Perhaps, you’re more likely to discuss your metaphysical pursuits now, drawing back the curtains on a window to your soul. You may be quite surprised at how much interest people have in your visions, making you even more willing to talk about things you normally keep private. Sharing your most sacred rituals with a close friend or partner opens a whole new dimension in which to grow a special relationship. Ziggy Marley said, “Love is a spiritual thing.”
