Your horoscope from February 12 to 18, 2015

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Mercury has just ended retrograde, but it will continue to travel through Aquarius to mid next month. Expect life to stay on a buzzed-up dial—there will be no lack of news to report on. Through the end of next week, Mercury is favourably aligned with Saturn, the get-down-to-business planet. Mercury/Saturn is a productive and focused influence. It’s excellent for pinpointing, revising, and improving the plan. Get to work and you’ll make better-than-average progress.

      Thursday can be a wrap-up-and-move-through-the-turnstile day. Friday’s travel, timing, scouting, or pleasure-seeking missions should get a good approval rating. It’s also an ideal day to get a jump-start on Valentine’s Day. The moon leaves Sagittarius for Capricorn on Saturday night, an appropriate transit to slow the pace and enjoy the reward.

      Next Wednesday delivers the second-strongest super moon of the year. (The strongest is the lunar eclipse at the end of September.) It’s a new moon in Aquarius, three minutes shy of the sun’s entrance into Pisces (3:50 p.m.). The very last degree of any sign holds great seeding potency. There’s plenty of added kick to this new moon. Mars is also at the culminating degree of Pisces. The Lunar New Year (the start of the Wood Goat/Sheep year) on Thursday is accompanied by Mars heading into Aries. On Friday, Venus follows her hot lover, and on Saturday, Venus and Mars begin a new relationship cycle.

      March 20 - April 20

      Now that Mercury retrograde is finished, you’ll naturally plug back in, socially and otherwise. If you’re self-employed, on commission, or an investor, you can find yourself on a financial upswing. Thursday’s finish line brings satisfaction. Aim wherever you like on Friday: your batting average can be excellent. Wednesday’s super new moon signals blastoff, hot-stuff time.

      April 20 - May 21

      Once you finish it off or let it go, you’ll feel much lighter and brighter. The now is about the future, not the past. Fresh prospects are on the immediate horizon. Playing it up on Valentine’s Day? Coupled or not, take it slow and savour every moment of it. As of Wednesday’s super moon onward, the stars spur you on to full steam ahead.

      May 21 - June 21

      With Mercury retrograde out of the way, you’ll hit a much smoother, more productive sail. Friday is an easy-come or indulge-yourself day. Quality over quantity is the right way to play it for Valentine’s Day. Wednesday delivers a super new moon in your sign, but you’ll gain an energy jump-start from the stars of Monday night and into Tuesday.

      June 21 - July 22

      Do your best to tie up loose ends on Thursday, but don’t sweat it if something outstanding or uncertain remains. Time often takes on a life of its own—Friday can be such a day. Valentine’s Day romance is dished up best when you take it slow and let it unfold. Mercury direct and Wednesday’s super moon set finances and
      intimacy matters on fast-forward.

      July 22 - August 23

      You’ll make better connections and fresh inroads now that Mercury retrograde is over. Introductions of all kinds can strike a good match through mid March. At work or at play, Friday keeps you batting a great average and loving it. On Valentine’s Day, keep it real. Whatever you get up to, make a full-on commitment. The pace picks up from Wednesday onward.

      August 23 - September 23

      Work, studies, group projects, and health matters will see better progress now that Mercury retrograde is over. Agents will work better for you, too. By month’s end, you should be able to wrap up the contract or find what’s eluded you so far. To feel cherished, respected, and honoured—it’s the right
      prescription for love and for your Valentine’s Day celebration.

      September 23 - October 23

      Continuing in Aquarius through mid March, you’ll now gain from Mercury’s extended benefits package. Your career, social life, and love life prospects can hit an upswing, especially after Wednesday’s super new moon. Thursday/Friday can get it off the ground for you quite nicely. Spend it with a lover, loved ones, or alone; easy does it best on Valentine’s Day.

      October 23 - November 22

      Have the past few weeks derailed you? You’ll make better progress on home or personal projects now that Mercury retrograde is over. Thursday/Friday can be quite profitable and smooth-running. These are good convince-and-convert days. Your traditional choices work best for Valentine’s Day. No lover? Whatever… It’s just another day. Work and health matters hit a fast track as of late next week.

      November 22 - December 21

      You’re on a sail through Thursday and Friday. The Sagittarius moon sends you into the weekend on a great battery recharge. You won’t lack for fresh ideas and folks to share them with. Even so, low-key hits it right for Valentine’s Day evening. Sunday can kick-start something unexpected. Following Wednesday’s super new moon, Venus and Mars light a fresh spark.

      December 21 - January 20

      You’ll get more for your effort and investment now that Mercury retrograde has ended. For the most part, you’ll feel better connected, too. The motor-along is easy-rolling through Saturday. Take charge, have it your way on Valentine’s Day. Sunday spurs you to action. As of the second half of next week, life hits the gas pedal.

      January 20 - February 18

      Mercury, now out of retrograde and continuing in your sign through mid March, puts the key in the ignition. As of Wednesday’s super new moon, it’s off with the old, on with the next. Expect life to keep to a rapid pace through mid April. Valentine’s Day is best enjoyed as a private affair.

      February 18 - March 20

      The finish-up-and-move-it-along is a good one, especially Thursday/Friday. Downplayed but not forgotten is the way to go on Valentine’s Day. Puttering around on your own will suit the day just fine too. Coinciding with the start of Pisces month, Wednesday’s super new moon signs you up for a new and especially fertile create-it chapter.
