Horoscope February 2009
Quirky Aquarians Take the Lead
Ah, Aquarians. Intellectually social, you can be found in group after group, wherever you can increase your understanding of the human condition. You represent the next 2,000 years, when the electric networking of Aquarius replaces the faith-based emotionalism of Pisces. Aquarians have the patent on “quirky.” You’re so impatient for the rest of us to catch up. For a personal reading, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your glyph, those two zigzag lines, represents electromagnetic wave energy. Within you is a humanistic force equal to solar power and the Internet. You have more friends than most, and each has a special gift for you in this, your Jupiter year. Great good fortune manifests directly ahead. It is all about who you know. Network.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Fish don’t like the ugly underbelly of humanity and usually swim away fast. But the team or party is your support system now, and you must be magnanimous and egalitarian simultaneously, while you build consensus. So you will see some ugly. Choose the proper response: amusement. Idle talk is still great entertainment. Enjoy.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Often you young souls resemble enthusiastic toddlers, reaching, without fear, for that next big experience. Equally charming and annoying, you must lead because you are naturally ahead of the pack, with the attendant skirmishes. Soften the approach now for rapid expansion. You’re the VIP at every gathering. Utilize rare popularity. Shine.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
That little red demon self-sabotage dominates your subconscious landscape. Now is the time to recognize that radical change may only be painful for the moment of the unknown. Be willing to consider far-fetched options, and be brave enough to accept newness in whatever form it takes. Corporate matters coalesce; you’re on the team!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Plotting and planning behind the scenes is fertile. A shared passion takes on a life of its own when more than two are involved. A private getaway with the current muse will renew your spirits. Treat yourself gently. Pregnant with your creative future, the Polaroid of your vision is coming into focus. A small skirmish is worth the prize. Jump in.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This is the busiest month of the year for the work you do in the public eye. Be sharp; everybody’s watching. Forgo the glory of being out front for the power of being up in back. Be only concerned with the quality of your influence. Set personal speed and distance records. Past experience makes it much easier. Chill.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This is a combustible month by any standards; be careful that you don’t trample people in your impatience. Contemplate magnanimity as you pillage (only a Leo truly understands this.) Community connections and social strata accelerate your already whirlwind calendar. Achieve balance by doing something magnificent for charity.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Two things you can’t take from a Virgo: the work ethic and the morning paper. Undertake full-court press on your work schedule, and keep up with the latest. Inner rebellion at cosmic unfairness sets you on a personal crusade. Do this alone, as it is your moment in time. Others approach offering personal resources to strengthen the project.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Romance blossoms: babies, animals, flowers, and the cute senior who winked at you at Trader Joe’s. Love must be experienced for health and the impetus to set new goals. Life is your sandbox; play joyously with all the kids who attract you. Too premature for serious alliance, you certainly have your pick of the pack. Laugh.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Hard work and quality times at home can be a healing force that increases your reserve. Be conscious of times when that suspicious nature can afford to loosen its grip on the situation. Take it all lightly. An intellectual approach to an intimate’s struggle frees you from unnecessary involvement. Sometimes understanding is enough. Move on.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
A short journey looks lighthearted but is a chance to heal. Throw some things in the trunk and plan to use a tank getting there. Once there, talk with the locals, meet with the like-minded, and start a new tradition. Prayers of the road enlighten you; just one degree of latitude or longitude will open the consciousness. Contact siblings and neighbors.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
What recession? Your skills are in demand more than ever; and if your work ethic concurs, here come the big bucks. Friends and associates are the key to solid, new opportunities. You’ll go straight to the top because of who you know, not what you know. Reorganize the home environment with a boot camp mentality. Order rules.
