My Stars: Enjoy the ride, Pisces, even though it’s a little bumpy

Pisces sign

Pisces (February 19-March 20): There are periods in our lives when we need to attempt something, and then abandon it, before achieving our goals. This is one of those periods for you. Enjoy the ride, even though it’s a little bumpy and there are kinks to be worked out. Consider yourself a play in out-of-town previews, which will polish off your rough edges.

aries sign

Aries (March 21-April 20): You should have quite a bit of pep in your step this cycle, the planets aligning to act as a cheering section for you, as you lead the Mardi Gras parade down the avenue; you are the golden child who within limits is capable of outshining all of us. Success comes easily in this period, enjoy it.

Taurus sign

Taurus (April 21-May 20): Both Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday occur under your Moon in February, which generally would not be significant; for your sign, it does reflect is that you will take a hard look at proposals. This allows you to be in the best position for possibilities, that greet you after St. Patrick’s Day.

Gemini sign

Gemini (May 21-June 20): It looks like the start of spring is going to be one of those periods in life where every effort you make only achieves incremental progress. Some of us like to keep ourselves in condition by just applying lotion, but in your case, it won’t, though you’re in a vat slathered with molasses. Hopefully it will keep you as sweet that most of us consider you to be.

Cancer sign

Cancer (June 21-July 22): While it’s not the stars that are making it difficult for you to keep on the sidewalk (which is not to imply that you are becoming some version of a street walker) but Mercury is making you be so wrapped up in your thoughts that you might find traffic to be a hazard to you.

Leo sign

Leo (July 23-August 22): It looks as though things should be hotting up for you, with the Moon in opposition to Venus and Mars. Just remember that the scent of desperation tends to not be attractive, except to grifters. As we near the Spring Equinox, you should find yourself capable of receiving the baton and running the race, if you allow yourself to take an approach that actually surprises you.

Virgo sign

Virgo (August 23-September 22): Despite any effort you may put into being tactful, the planets conspire to coerce you into putting yourself in difficult situations, though not dangerous. You will find yourself expending far too much time in trivialities, which don’t assist you in your big plans. Try not to be distracted by a wannabe team to score points that don’t lead to you achieving what you wish to.

Libra sign

Libra (September 23-October 22): Hopefully, you enjoy being a tourist, as it seems that as we enter Spring, it’s more likely that you will be an idle observer of events rather than being the thing upon which they were supposed to revolve. I don’t disagree that you might merit being doted on, but just reminding you, darling, that it’s always more effective to actually have done something to earn it. Others think that you have, alas.

Scorpio sign

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Well, you may find yourself bone-tired from your pursuits in February, but the Scorpio Moon shines down on Imbolc/Candlemas, setting the tone for all of us. Jupiter does not allow things to come easy. You won’t even have an opportunity to rest on your laurels. Hopefully you will appreciate your achievements as success will not be freely handed to you.

Sagittarius sign

Sagittarius ( November 22-December 22): The planets conspire to jostle the bed and the coverlets that you wished were just concealing you from responsibility, while they keep resetting the alarm. Duty calls, and there’s no way to decline answering it. You might as well try explaining to a toddler that they must be patient (while the planets are considering you in the same light as that toddler; it’s the circle of life).

Capricorn sign

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Hopefully you’re OK with leaving the house with ragged nails, as the planets conspire to keep you too busy to attend to your manicure. February has been penciled in for the pursuit of success, which has a great potential to manifest at the beginning of March. You should then be able to find some time to set aside to groom yourself to look like the success that you stand to be.

aquarius sign

Aquarius (January 20-February 18): The dynamic impact of the New Moon on Feb. 9 has no effect on your chart, alas. This part of the year seems to be your “beige” period. The dragged exterior that you may affect now is protective, and will allow you the space to shine later in the Spring.
