Stargazer: Feb. 6 – 12, 2019

For All Signs:  For the next two weeks Mars and Uranus are in a tense arrangement.  Mars is the warrior and Uranus is a radical transformer.  This combination makes an equation for sudden bursts of energy, quick tempers, people demanding freedom, and explosive action which is not necessarily wise or well directed.  Mars increases adrenaline and cortisol, resulting from the stress of will.  Uranus is high wired, excitable energy that feels like electricity flowing through the brain.  When these two operate together it is incredibly important to keep oneself grounded.  It is mandated that we exercise, which uses up the excess hormonal rush and settles us.  When these two are at work we often get high on our excitement and cannot sleep well.  This combination increases the risk for accidents, so drive carefully.  A positive outcome is that we have the energy to break out of ruts that have been holding us hostage or to focus physical energy into major tasks.

Aries:  This is not your best week unless you plan to get a lot of hard work accomplished.  If you become aware that you are easily angered, use caution concerning tools or machinery.  Your reflexes may not be on target.  Avoid speeding because there may be police on every corner.

Taurus:  Prepare for upcoming changes in life direction.  Uranus will be entering Taurus on March 1, 2019.  You experienced the preview of this transit from May, 2018 through October, 2018.  You may think your life won’t change, but it will over the next seven years.  Probable cause:  financial shifts. 

Gemini:  You are in the mood for travel, exploring, and overall expansion of your mind.  Activities involving education, legal interests, and the internet are favored.  You may be researching a new interest, gazing over travel brochures for your next adventure, or pursuing an interest in philosophy or religion.

Cancer:  You may be feeling irritable this week.  It is possible that your GI tract is disturbed.  Concentrate on getting enough rest, and drinking a lot of water to soothe quavering organs.  Take some alone time if you need it.  Your loved ones will manage for a few days without your care.

Leo:  This is an upbeat time for you.  Your mood is optimistic.  Your relationship to partner, business or personal, is enjoying positive camaraderie.  You have a grasp of the big picture of that relationship and can find an appropriate way to communicate it with another.

Virgo:  Activity this week favors employment, co-workers, and health improvement agendas.  You may be upgrading high tech communications equipment.  Attend to any information that seems to be intuitive or “strange” in a good way.  It is a clue that you need to know in the future.

Libra: Give attention to your intuition this week.  This is especially needed if you notice something different about your home, property, or family.  Even dreams or day time visions could alert you to something important.  Don’t dismiss them.

Scorpio: Focus attention on the lead paragraph because Mars is one of your ruling planets.  If you need courage and have a plan, now is the time to begin.  Break free of ruts and try a new idea.  Exercise so you will remain grounded on the planet.  This is highly excitable energy.

Sagittarius: Your mood is expansive and optimistic this week.  It is one of those “good luck” times that occasionally happen to the Archers.  You have a grasp of the big picture and could use this energy to promote your projects and gain support.  Or you could simply kick back and enjoy the glow.

Capricorn:  You may need to concentrate in order to avoid critics, whether they be internal or external.  Instead of blame, use the discipline to tackle a project that requires concentration.  Avoid contracts and business negotiations right now because misunderstandings may develop.

Aquarius the Waterbearer:  (Jan 19 — Feb 18) Please read the lead paragraph carefully.  You may be subject to irritation or accidental injury (probably not serious).  Give yourself time to be alone in the quiet.  Having too many people around will get on your nerves this week.

Pisces:  Mercury enters your sign on Feb. 10, 2019.  Mercury travels slowly through your sign between February 10, 2019 and April 17, 2019.  It will be going through its retrograde cycle before it moves along.  Take care with any decision of importance because you likely will find reason to change your mind.  New information keeps popping up to muddy the works.  This is normal with Mercury retrogrades.  Do not beat yourself because you can’t seem to move forward.  Solutions come with time.
