Your horoscope for February 1 to 7, 2018

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      On the day that Mars completed its tour of Scorpio, two premiers and a federal cabinet member were taken out of the game. With or without Trump onboard, the rest of the political/economic world is on the move-along.

      The creative potency of this week’s lunar eclipse continues. Something ends so something else, something better and more promising, can begin. Eclipses always produce something unexpected. They also serve to accelerate a circumstance, relationship, or an inner process. We can see action on the actual day of an eclipse, but they can produce in the weeks prior to and following. Watch for that which has been brought to the light of day through recent action and events to move through notable checkpoints again at the end of June and middle of October.

      The super-full-moon eclipse that has just passed and the solar eclipse on the way (February 15) serve as a shake-up/wake-up call aimed at revitalizing and revolutionizing the creative process. The catalyst can be something inspirational, synchronistic, and timely, or it can be of a more urgent nature. We can meet with fruition or face the breakdown and/or demise of that which no longer holds enough life force. Who and what is not meant to be leading the way will be replaced by something much more dynamic. The action or eventfulness of an eclipse is not negotiable. You cannot deny the reality; you must get onboard with it. The quicker you do that, the more you gain.

      Thursday/Friday, the Virgo moon sets a productive backdrop for getting a better handle on it. The weekend is a good one for socializing, romance, and getting your pleasure fill. Venus aligned with Jupiter on Saturday and Uranus on Tuesday keeps the spark well lit on good ideas, creativity, relationships, and money matters.

      March 20 - April 19

      Take it one step at a time Thursday/Friday; try not to get too far ahead of yourself. Don’t let the stress or unfinished stuff get to you, but do jump full tilt into a good idea or spontaneous moment. This weekend, socialize, indulge, let yourself off the hook. Tuesday/Wednesday, an insight or an impulse could lead you some place worthwhile. Trust what comes naturally.

      April 20 - May 20

      By choice or by force, a ride on the fast train is your best option. Has the recent eclipse surprised or upended you? Don’t dwell on the past; commit your all to a better future. Venus and Jupiter are geared toward making the most of it this weekend. Take full advantage of your time. Next week’s stars hold good promise too.

      May 21 - June 21

      One thing after another, Thursday/Friday keeps you well on the go, productively so, even with the unexpected extras. Mars in Sagittarius and a concentration of planets in Aquarius keep the daily get-go and future prospects on a lively full swing. Now through next week, the stars loan you excellent steps ahead of the game radar. Pay close attention to instincts and impressions.

      June 21 - July 22

      One eclipse launched, one more to go. Both thrust health, job-related matters, and work-it-out mandates onto an acceleration fast track. They rev up necessity, but they also rev up better-than-average potential. A fresh attitude, try, or hunt could get you someplace good. Saturday, socialize; watch overindulgence. Monday to Wednesday, play it smart; there’s plenty to be gained.

      July 22 - August 22

      The end of the week gives you more to go on or choose from. Thursday/Friday, get onto task; bring yourself up to speed; improve it; or shop around. Saturday through Tuesday, Venus lights the go-for-it spark. An inspired moment, well-timed risk, impulse purchase, or big investment could take you someplace good.

      August 22 - September 22

      Thursday/Friday infuses you with more get-up-and-go. Through the middle of next week, Venus is reviving or revitalizing in some major, perhaps unexpected, way. Another try could spell improvement. Then again, don’t hesitate to try something different. A budding inner or outer dialogue is worth heeding.

      September 22 - October 23

      The Libra moon keeps you going strong for the weekend. Indulge, enjoy, but know you can easily spend more, go farther, or get more involved than you originally planned. Sunday, it’s all good. Along with Venus in Aquarius drawing extra turbo from Jupiter on Saturday and Uranus on Tuesday, you should find yourself on a significant personal, social, and create-it refuel.

      October 23 - November 21

      Dive into it full tilt this weekend. Anything to do with learning and growth, wealth generation, renovation, or reinvention gets a big thumbs up. The stars keep the action going strong regarding home, real estate, and family. Living with yourself can be the biggest attention getter. Right now, it’s a major work in progress. Through next Wednesday, you hit a lucrative roll.

      November 21 - December 21

      A fresh adventure, idea, conversation, or impulse could prove to be a great springboard. Socialize or spend quality time this weekend any way you like. Attend a workshop, trade show, or opening; go exploring; try a first date. Making it or gaining it, a first impression keeps the interest level going strong. Through the next few weeks, Mars in Sagittarius keeps you on the good-to-go dial-up.

      December 21 - January 19

      Getting you up and over the hump, Thursday/Friday fill in a blank. Use these days to top it up, clear it up, let it go, and/or move on. Saturday/Sunday, easy does it best. Monday is a good day to connect and make inroads. Tuesday/Wednesday, act on a good idea, a fresh interest, or the spur of the moment.

      January 20 - February 18

      Minimize the work, expense, or output as best you can Thursday/Friday. Don’t get into anything too complicated. Relationship- and activitywise, the weekend should prove smooth going. Venus in Aquarius triggers Jupiter on Saturday and Uranus on Tuesday. Expect to hit an opportune and lucrative fast track.

      February 18 - March 20

      Charged up about something new or something challenging? Your mind and your emotional draw can hit overdrive. As Friday moves along, so do you. The weekend is great for socializing, romance, fresh insights, creativity, and inspired moments. The week ahead keeps you sharp and quick on the uptake. Immerse yourself; make the most of it!
