Your horoscope for February 8 to 14, 2018

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      The opening of the Olympics on Thursday—coinciding with Mercury in Aquarius dialing it up—is sure to be a standout event, not only for the creative spectacle but for the politics, too.

      Thursday/Friday, Mercury teams up with the karmic axis (south node). Serving as precursor to next week’s solar eclipse in Aquarius, agent Mercury is now promoting the next “live action” movie. Don’t underestimate the potency of what sparks you or what you run up against. Last month and this month places us at a peak destiny-in-the-making threshold, one that holds greater-than-average potential to make greater-than-average progress. This time of karmic recall provides an opportunity to meet with the past in order to rework and resolve it, or to meet with the earnings of the past as a fruition springboard. Of course, evolution is, typically, a blending of the unresolved and fresh opportunity.

      No matter how the eclipse just past or the coming one delivers for you, they serve to speed up the action. Eclipses set the future onto a faster track.

      Venus leaves Aquarius for Pisces on Saturday. Venus is considered exalted in this idealistic, imaginative, and romantic sign. Along with sun/Jupiter pumping it up, Saturday evening sets a great backdrop for date night.

      Monday’s Capricorn moon makes for a get-down-to-business day. As of Tuesday, Mercury/Jupiter and sun/Uranus put everything on the increase and on the move. Follow through on a good idea. Creative thinking/solutions and spontaneity are your best bet. Valentine’s Day is mostly notable because it is the day before the solar eclipse in Aquarius. Anything goes; it’s all up for grabs!

      March 20 - April 19

      Destiny is in the making. Do not underestimate the potential of what you feel inwardly or witness outwardly. Thursday/Friday are the advance triggers for next Thursday’s solar eclipse. As such, they are auspicious get-moving-on-it/take-flight days. Let intuition, inspiration, or spontaneity lead the way. A first impression, conversation, piece of news, or meet-up sets the future into high gear. Monday/Tuesday keeps you going strong.

      April 20 - May 20

      No matter what the recent lunar eclipse has set in motion, the stage is set for you to make a major personal, career, or lifestyle leap. Off with the old, on with the new, perhaps abruptly or radically so. Your stars are built for speed, not for comfort. Don’t deny the reality; get onboard ASAP. Thursday/Friday, someone or something can surprise you.

      May 21 - June 21

      Mercury in Aquarius keeps you quick on the ball/perks up your intuitive smarts and creativity. This next week sets a synchronistic backdrop for getting your message across, connecting the dots, and making the most of it. A sudden hit, impression, or stroke-of-genius moment springboards you. A talk, meet-up, piece of news, or surprise could make your day.

      June 21 - July 22

      You may have extra to tackle right now, but know you have extra stellar assistance, too. Expand your repertoire; explore more; increase effort; and experiment with a new way of thinking, being, and living. Innovation and reinvention are where it’s at. Venus in Pisces, starting Saturday, goes easier on you, but intensity and guesswork continue through to next Thursday’s solar eclipse.

      July 22 - August 22

      Someone you meet or something you hear, see, or read will strike a deep chord. Never a dull moment; the action and opportunity continue on ready dial-up. A conversation, invitation, or surprise keeps you going strong. You can feel a strong sense of déjà vu or destiny at play. It’s an ideal time to take a break and/or dive into something new.

      August 22 - September 22

      Too much to deal with? Overwhelmed of late? Allow yourself to take a break, let go, unwind, move on. As soon as you do, you’ll hit a quick physical bounce-back. Even so, with all that you have been through recently, your emotions can need more time to come up to speed. Friday through Monday, take a load off; go gentle on yourself.

      September 22 - October 23

      Spur of the moment can make your day Thursday/Friday. Synchronicity is in high gear; destiny is too. Mercury in Aquarius can trigger something interesting, inspiring, unexpected, or even exceptional. Saturday can see you spend more, go further, or take on more than you planned. Tuesday through solar-eclipse Thursday marks an auspicious time to sign a contract, meet someone, or start something new.

      October 23 - November 21

      Thursday can get you going on something else or something fresh. The unexpected is in the mix. When that sudden flash or stroke of genius hits, go the distance. The weekend is also an ideal time to let yourself off the hook; don’t wait for Valentine’s Day. Venus in Pisces, starting Saturday, enhances romantic potential, creativity, and reward.

      November 21 - December 21

      Seize the moment! The moon in Sagittarius keeps you freshly refuelled and good to go through Saturday. For the weekend, ease up, relax, indulge. Saturday night, aim for quiet or play up the romance. It holds better promise than Valentine’s for date night. Tuesday onward, watch for something inspiring, sudden, or unexpected to get you up and rolling. Someone may surprise or impress you.

      December 21 - January 19

      Get an early start to the weekend or get a jump-start on Valentine’s Day. A weekend getaway is also ideally timed. Saturday night through Tuesday, take charge; have it your way. Tuesday onward, the solar eclipse can fire up something auspicious, new, or unexpected. A contract, actual or karmic, is on the stellar agenda.

      January 20 - February 18

      Mercury in Aquarius and the Sagittarius moon put you into full swing Thursday/Friday. Destiny does too. Don’t hold back, go for it big-time. The transit of Mercury triggers next Thursday’s solar eclipse. Watch for something or someone to ignite, surprise, or overtake you. Things could change in a flash. Something ends; something auspicious begins.

      February 18 - March 20

      Thursday/Friday can get you started. Saturday can see you pick up more speed and, as of next week, a new reality sets into play. Venus in Pisces increases your ability to attract, enhance, and make the most of the moment. Next Thursday’s solar eclipse puts the unexpected, perhaps even the exceptional, into high gear.
