Venus Visits Pisces
Venus makes the astrological headlines this week with her move to the Pisces realm, a place where even the most unrealistic of romantic dreams could come true (or at least provide such entertainment and enjoyment in the mind that they might as well have). Maybe love isn't like the movies exactly, yet isn't it possible that the limits we put on what love can be are self-imposed? Put wings on your heart and let it go exploring.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). The relationship that was once a cause for frustration will become a source of joy. You will handle your responsibility with marvelous confidence, as you have had plenty of practice. Bonus: You will, at least for this week, be empowered to stop the bad habit of worrying over things that are not in your control.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A romantic entanglement provides a bit of heavenly madness. Then, later in the week, new certainty takes hold of you, and you will make a series of stellar decisions. These decisions are about you, yet the soundness and correctness of your choices will have a favorable effect on your loved ones.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You can be loyal to a fault. Not everyone you give your loyalty to has earned it. Give some thought as to what you would like to experience in your relationships. Perhaps it's time to decide upon new criteria regarding just what it takes to be your friend. This is an excellent week to change up your social rules.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Letting go of fear isn't easy. It takes a willingness to dig into your belief system, challenge what you thought was true and essentially call your former self "wrong." People generally don't like to be called wrong. It's too much of an affront to the ego. But you're willing to be wrong if it means being free of fear — and it will!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Being able to tell your own story well is a skill worth developing. It will shape people's perception of you and, subsequently, the opportunities offered to you. Much has changed since your last incarnation. Consider what's important to you these days, and experiment with different ways of presenting the highlights.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). In response to your regal air, you'll be cared for like royalty. It's not that you think you're better than anyone else; it's just that you sense that you need special care, and you're willing to treat yourself like the treasure you are. The rest follow your lead and make sure that a few of your specific requirements are fulfilled.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you connect with people, you feel the "click." When you don't connect, it doesn't mean you should move quickly on. Instinct will tell you to linger because there is something to learn from even those you don't readily jibe with. Also, some people need more time to warm up. Patience will be rewarded.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your capable attitude attracts herculean tasks in the early week. On Thursday and Friday, minor problems may be exaggerated in your mind. If you think you need a job change, a move or a relationship shift, give it some time. Maybe you just need more sleep, good nutrition and a walk. Don't do anything drastic.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your heart needs to plug in, but your devices are taking over all of your charger space. Strongly consider doing a technology cleanse this week. Seek the real over the virtual whenever possible. There will be interesting strangers around you Wednesday through Friday, so don't be afraid to strike up a conversation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Love isn't all holding hands and staring into each other's sparkling eyes. Sometimes love is looking forward to having someone annoy you in new and inventive ways. This week, love will grow your spirit. The journey may be quite pleasant or not so much, but the destination makes the trip worthwhile.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Looking for happiness is a full-time job, and it can certainly tire a person out. Being happy, however, is more of a habit and actually requires very little effort. This week's lesson has to do with learning to relax and appreciate the resources around you and inside you, all of which can be ingredients for happiness.
THIS WEEK'S BIRTHDAYS: Entertaining is your talent and pleasure in February, when friends and community will depend on you to add fun to their lives. April and May ignite your adventurous spirit, and you'll bravely move through uncharted territory. June brings key decisions, and the follow-through will be a lot of work. Just be sure that you're doing what feels good to you, because if you compromise too far, it will dampen your vitality. Answer the call of romance and beauty in August.
