Your horoscope from February 18 to 24, 2016

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Over the past week Mercury and Venus have advanced into Aquarius. Both will add a fresh energy spark and they’ll continue to keep the political headlines and social action on a lively track.

      At 9:34 p.m. on Thursday, the sun swims into Pisces. While in this sign, the sun gives life to inspirations, dreams, romance, and creativity, and to potential that is ready to be accessed. When Pisces is featured, it is better to allow, accept, and surrender rather than to push or force.

      Overall, Friday’s stars should make for a smooth finish to the workweek, while setting up a pleasant kick-back or love-’em-up start to the weekend. Continuing through Sunday, the Leo moon plans to make the most of it.

      Monday morning’s full moon in Virgo launches the new workweek. It could be difficult to stick to a tight schedule. Noting the full moon forms tension with the karmic axis and several Pisces transits—notably Neptune, Ceres, and Chiron—expect to get caught up by the unforeseen, and to be busied by things that need to be corrected, fixed, healed, or improved upon.

      Something can be revealed or exposed that has previously escaped notice. Keep a close watch on work matters, privacy concerns, personal information, details, your health, and the health of your pets. The full moon will also draw added attention to things that affect the masses and/or that are of global concern. To the plus, a potential of good promise or a saving-grace opportunity could appear. Tuesday onward, the stars are on the upswing.

      March 20 - April 20

      >Look around, put your feelers out, experiment more. Over the next several weeks, Mercury and Venus boost ideas, insights, your social life, and financial opportunity. While the sun tours Pisces, a new love interest or passion taps deep into the soul. Monday’s full moon can expose something that’s been forgotten, misplaced, or neglected. There’s also a good opportunity to heal, upgrade, or fix.

      April 20 - May 21

      Change is good, change is necessary. While busting up the concrete can be hard work, the sun’s advance into Pisces may go easier on you. Pressure or confidence can build Saturday through Sunday. Time is your ally or your prod. Either way, you stand to gain. Monday’s full moon brings an opportunity to speak up, apply, or address or correct a long-standing matter.

      May 21 - June 21

      Although getting a better handle on it continues to require work and effort, Mercury, Venus, and the sun on the move-along create a better flow and an easier go (at least for the most part!). Friday/Saturday are great for getting your entertainment fill. Monday’s full moon can mess with your schedule. Something at the last minute or the unforeseen could make you scramble.

      June 21 - July 22

      Pisces month, starting Thursday, brings you better luck. Mercury and Venus in Aquarius are also helpful in terms of dishing up new creative ideas or financial avenues. Something or someone new could be of great help. Saturday/Sunday can boost your confidence. Monday’s weed-it-out full moon can prove to be a productive problem-solving, clear-it-up, and/or fix-it day. Heed warning signals, don’t take unnecessary risks.

      July 22 - August 23

      You’ve got game this weekend thanks to the moon being on a tour of Leo. For the most part, that spotlight-claiming and refreshed can-do spirit will do you justice. As of Monday, you are wise to tone it down. More caution is advised; it’s easy to overshoot, overspend, or lose sight of the important details. Tuesday onward, you’re back on the upswing.

      August 23 - September 23

      For the next several weeks, expect to hit a much busier go. A new health kick, job, work project, or study schedule sets you onto a significant and rapid learning curve. Monday’s full moon in Virgo could expose something that’s initially challenging, but after the fact, it can give you an upper hand and a better solution or result.

      September 23 - October 23

      Picking up from the sun’s good lead, Venus and Mercury freshly into Aquarius will continue to keep you inspired, energized, game, and hopeful. The Pisces sun boosts your creativity and intuition, but it can also increase sensitivity to environments and vulnerability to people or viruses. Put extra safeguards in place during full-moon Monday, especially regarding health or personal information.

      October 23 - November 22

      Home life can get much busier now, especially if you are on the move or if there is a new family situation to deal with. A renovation project or new business venture is also well-timed. Pisces month is one of your most creative. It’s also great for affairs of the heart. Monday’s full moon could put something unforeseen into full swing.

      November 22 - December 21

      While Venus and Mercury keep you actively out there and involved, the sun’s trek into Pisces will have you craving more breathing space for yourself and/or more quality time with family. Even so, the weekend is set up for fun and adventure. Enjoy sports or socializing, or take your special someone out on a date. Full-moon Monday calls for extra troubleshooting; you’ll manage well.

      December 21 - January 20

      Communications, plans, and the daily get-go move into an ease-up trend. Thanks to Monday’s full moon, you’ll learn something useful or hear of something advantageous. Perhaps, you’ll get a better price or gain more leeway or leverage. Even if things don’t pan out to begin with, they should work out well in the end.

      January 20 - February 18

      Venus and Mercury in Aquarius continue to keep you looking and sounding your best. Go ahead, kick it up a notch. For the next couple of weeks, your popularity and opportunities are on the rise. Have fun this weekend. Full-moon Monday could produce strain or disappointment, or leave you drained. Stay alert, play it safe, and don’t bank on a promise.

      February 18 - March 20

      You’ll now hit a fresh and faster track. The revitalizing sun in Pisces infuses you with more energy, hope, and a can-do attitude. A new trend, perspective, or creative idea could be the “it” ticket. Monday’s full moon could put you on a rescue, recycling, or trouble-shooting mission, or a bargain hunt. Don’t accept partial information, hearsay, or opinions.
