Mars and Jupiter Tension

By Holiday Mathis

February 27, 2017 6 min read

Don't wait for a special moment to say the nice thing you usually keep to yourself. Birthdays and anniversaries are already saturated with generic messages. If you have something original and sweet to say, say it now, when no one is expecting it. It's the most charmed thing you could possibly do with this Mars and Jupiter alignment!

ARIES (March 21-April 19). By definition, work is harder than doing nothing at all. At least it should be. Then why doesn't it feel as if that is true? You'll find idleness to be an irritant and gladly take on more than your share to stay busy.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). One of the more difficult character challenges of the day will be in the practice of nonjudgment. To take things at face value is difficult for one with the in-depth knowledge that you have, but you won't be sorry.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Get going on a project. It doesn't matter where you start; it just matters that you do. Wrong choices lead to right ones; bad plans lead to better ones.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You're the unofficial coach of your group. You won't let anyone perform at a subpar level without taking it upon yourself to investigate the problem, fix it and motivate improvement.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). This is a time to keep as much of the project under your control and jurisdiction as you can. If you delegate too much, you'll just have to do it over yourself.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don't like to put people out, but if they want to make a sacrifice on your behalf, let them. You are important to your people. They want you to know this. Let them show you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Who should be fulfilling your expectation? Whose expectation should you be filling? If the answers to those questions are "nobody" and "nobody's," then you'll have an excellent day indeed.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Things will not stay the way they are. They never have, and they never will. With this in mind, you'll continue to look for the present opportunities, which are as unusual as they are rare.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). In most things, the lows and highs will expand at the same time. In a related story, you'll be reminded that the way to intelligent things is often found through silly things.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're edgy; the pressure is on. Embrace it. Some top performance coaches suggest that relaxation techniques only diminish your ability to connect. It's more compelling to stay in the moment and use the energy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Over-planning leads to a boring outcome. But how do you know when you've planned too much? If your plans are prohibiting you from taking advantage of the pop-up opportunities of the moment, abandon them.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll be at your absolute best in a safe environment where you're not worried about being scored or judged. You can have that peace even if you are being judged, by the way. The trick is in not worrying about it.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 27). This solar return, you'll step way out of the familiar and, upon returning, find new joy in the life you've built. Next month brings a favorable close to a long-running argument. Don't work on improving relationships, as it will happen through play, travel and fun. July brings the chance to double down and win. Gemini and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 38, 11, 19 and 26.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I'd like to be able to tell the future, as I imagine all that I could do with the knowledge. How can a Taurus become more psychic?"

For the sensual bull, your intuition will develop as you tune in to and test your various psychic channels. Think about channel surfing on your television and how some shows appeal to you more than others. One channel may hold no interest for you at all, and the next may take but a few seconds to pull you in. Well, this is similar to what happens with psychic channels. Finding the one that speaks to you will start your psychic journey.

For one who favors clairvoyance, psychic messages come in the form of mental pictures. A clairsentient is one who is oriented to receive guidance in the form of a feeling. Do your thoughts seem to communicate with you via an actual voice, music or other sounds? You may be experiencing clairaudience. If you've ever known information on a subject that you don't remember studying at all, you may be claircognizant.

It will be easier for you to open up and experiment when you come from a sense of curiosity, imagination and wonder. It will be difficult for you to grow your intuition if you're too focused on personal gain.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The angelic voice of Josh Groban fits as well into pop and rock music as it does into classical. Pisces are known for flexibility, which is a function of this sign's ability to empathize and align with different points of view. Groban has natal sun and Mars in Pisces, indicating that he will most likely explore another area of the entertainment field during his career, such as music production, writing or film direction.
