ALL SIGNS GENERAL FORECAST
(Scroll down for individual Sun Signs)
Quite a few will be putting on a tough face at the beginning of the week. Of course, we all know that appearances never really tell the whole story. Often, the tougher the face the more there is going on behind the scenes. As such, rather than co-operatively working out any differences hard -headed clashes are more likely. Perhaps, there is good reason to bravely hold ground protecting our figurative ‘baby’. However, hidden doubts could end up attracting uncomfortable confrontations. After all, life tends to reflect back at us what we, at times, refuse to see or acknowledge about ourselves.
In fact, the New Moon in Pisces on the 25th is one of those times where it will we will have to be careful what we wish for. We are always setting intentions, putting energy out there in a myriad of forms and the universe will be listening intently. In other words, both conscious and unconscious intentions have an increased likelihood of manifesting.
Immediately after the New Moon, an Impulsive Mars and Revolutionary Uranus, both in the Warrior sign of Aries sit in opposition to the Expansive influence of Jupiter in Libra. What does that mean exactly? I’d liken it to shaking a can of pop then pulling the tab. We are looking at bolt of energy set to express itself through our own personal relationships as well as on a global scale in a way we’ve probably already considered but didn’t think it would happen quite so fast and hard.
“The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.. You never know what is enough until you know what is more than enough.”― William Blake
This last week or so of February should be pretty interesting. As Mars and Uranus, (often considered off the hinge trouble makers) nestle up to one another in your sign at the end of the weekend. Leading up to this high-energy influence a New Moon opens your visionary/ intuitive pathways increasing your sensitivity to the world around you. While this can be extremely useful – that inner fire of yours can easily get out of control. Truth be told, there is a certain amount of unpredictability, with Uranus involved suggesting you’ll either be dancing with glee around the bright orange glow or momentarily stunned about what this may mean in the near future.
Suggestion for the New Moon on the 25th : Pay attention to your dreams and intuition, make a wish that resonates within the deepest parts of your soul.
“Excess on occasion is exhilarating. It prevents moderation from acquiring the deadening effect of a habit.” –W. Somerset Maugham
You may feel you know more now –know better now. If so, be prepared to have those assertions tested. As Mars remains in your twelfth (what can be considered a blind spot) it is likely that any leftover angst that you thought was ‘solved’ may just reflect back through the actions/words of another. That is, there is a higher chance than normal that thoughts and feelings you’ve refused to deal with within yourself is acted out through your external environment (events, people). It would be wise to enlist an extra helping of compassion from your end should you find yourself attracting not so pleasant confrontations. It will be especially important at the end of the weekend, on the 26th and 27th in regards to matters at work and with group relations.
The New Moon on the 26th is an ideal time to make a wish, plant seeds of intention. However, it is crucial that you are crystal clear about what you would like to see manifest. For instance if you are hoping to make a career move or reinvent an intimate relationship yet have anxiety about making any kind of change the universe will create just that – a change resulting in a situation that causes anxiety.
“While you are proclaiming peace with your lips, be careful to have it even more fully in your heart.”— Francis of Assisi
You can remove yourself from the hubbub if you really wanted to Gemini. However, it could come at a cost. Keep in mind that under these skies it is best to go with what you know and feel is right in your gut despite the potential of a loss. The winds are striking in an unpredictable fashion moving ‘things’ around faster than even you can keep up with. In particular, at the end of the weekend, on the 26th and 27th the cosmos is sending a powerful pack of energy to shake things up – again, who knows how where the ‘pieces’ will eventually fall. Your saving grace is the New Moon in Pisces on the 25th. It will be a perfect day to plant the seeds of intention especially in regards to career and long-term goals. I have a sneaking suspicion that you’re aching to have more freedom of expression these days and so the urge to move into a position where you can won’t be easily ignored. ** As an important side note this New Moon is potent when it comes to granting wishes so you will have to be pretty darn clear about what you want AND you’ll want to be watchful of any negative thoughts as they have an equal chance of manifesting.

Disaffected? Feel like you can carry on guided solely by your own rule, on your own terms without having to answer to or find a way to make these changes sans push back? You may feel fully confident and justified you can at the beginning of the week. However by the weekend you’ll sense (probably physically, as in stress, fatigue etc.) some things just aren’t worth fighting that hard for and there is reason to believe you’ll get much further making an effort to work ‘together’ despite the necessary compromises.
As the Lunar Eclipse, on the 25th, falls in your house of ‘higher learning’ this may indeed be one of those times where profound insights, spiritual revelations flood your being and so open you up to a whole new perspective – ultimately an advantage in the grand scheme of your life. In fact, immediately following the Eclipse, Mars, Uranus and Jupiter will be keen on revolutionizing your role in some way. The spotlight will be on you – for better or worse. The latter of course is less likely if you’re willing to meet the challenges with graceful comportment.
“Every now and then a man’s mind is stretched by a new idea or sensation, and never shrinks back to its former dimensions.” ― Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.
All those great ideas swimming around in your head, once aired, may not be met with as much enthusiasm (or instant agreement) as you would have hoped. If that so happens to tickle your angry bone you’ll likely fan a fire that’s been burning inside everyone involved. Maybe a few fireworks are needed – a few shots taken if only to clarify what angle everyone is coming from without distortion. In other words, you probably won’t be the only one not in the mood for sugar coating your version of ‘what, why, how it is.”
By the end of the weekend the Lunar Eclipse in Pisces (on the 25th) sets you on a distinctly different path. In the midst of this transition it will be in your best interest to remain eyes wide and ears perked doing your best to withhold hard and fast judgments. We are talking about a work in progress here that likely demands your full attention, a healthy amount of optimism and solution oriented mindset to keep the ball rolling uphill.
“It is a troublesome thing, Halford, this susceptibility to affronts where none are intended.” ― Anne Brontë
“The motive behind criticism often determines its validity. Those who care criticize where necessary. Those who envy criticize the moment they think that they have found a weak spot.” ― Criss Jami
How does one put together a sound predictable routine purposefully set towards specific aims when shit keeps changing all the time? According to the current planetary influences it seems you’re juggling ideas that involve financial, relational, career and home (children in particular) matters that may or may not be issues to deal with in the near future. That is, the goal post keeps moving and the path keeps twisting unexpectedly just when you think you’ve got some semblance of a plan in place. Enjoy the ride Virgo – you are indeed deep in the waters of transition.
The Lunar Eclipse (on the 25th) in your commitment and partnership sector does present a shooting star with a jumbo set of receptive ears awaiting your wish. However, you’ll have to be crystal clear about what you’re asking for. That doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll have to know all the details – that will just stress you out. And if stress is what you are putting out there stress is what will boomerang back. Rather try imagining, to the point of utterly convincing yourself that you are exactly where you are supposed to be. In other words step into your future self now. After the weekend the ball moves again and with force. Your intentions under the Eclipse are actually informing its direction.
“Smile out loud! Make them wonder.”― Ljupka Cvetanova
“Needs cause motivation. Deep-rooted desires for esteem, affection, belonging, achievement, self-actualization, power, and control motivate us to push for what we want and need in our lives.” ― Lorii Myers
There is always an opportunity to argue. Sometimes it’s productive and promotes much needed progress. Sometimes it just hold things in place suffocating the potential of new growth. The cosmos will be sending gusts of wind and fanning flames this week. Thus, you’ll likely find yourself hopping on one foot wondering when and where you should be putting the other one down expressing your often well-reasoned logic (an argument as others may call it). While you probably won’t feel right keeping mum – not saying anything at all will feel worse. After the Lunar Eclipse on the 25th prepare to get hopping – it doesn’t seem like there will be anyway around it as there’s a whole lot of energy electrifying everyone’s ‘air’. If you can take some time on Sunday to clarify (in the private confines of your mind) what the ideal situation would be. It’ll help you maintain balance at the beginning of next week.
“I have so much to say and so little drive to do so. It’s tiring caring for someone more than they care about themselves.” — Unknown
“All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.” ― Douglas Adams
What you say will be as important as how you say it this week Scorpio. Of course, there is always truth to that sentiment. However, under these skies words, actions, behaviors will be received with greater intensity from all sides. Not only will Mercury be moving into the sensitive realm of Pisces but a Lunar Eclipse on the 25th thins the air between ‘u’s. Thus, you won’t have to put too much force into sending that message home. Also, after the Eclipse it seems no matter how skilled you are at handling the situation (likely related to a domestic matter) a surprising turn of events ends up messing with your plans anyway. In short, you’ll have more control/say so over results whilst foregoing the urge to prevent any changes taking place at all. As Mars and Uranus oppose Jupiter this power packed trio literally insists on moving you (and/or everything around you) to a different beat.
**The Eclipse in Pisces is the equivalent of a powerful New Moon and so the seeds of intention sewn have a greater potential to blossom further down the road … wish well.

“I really believe in the power of music – and I mean literally the power of musical tones – to rearrange the way you can think.”— Michael Azerrad
It wouldn’t be a surprise if your pontificating results in less than harmonious exchanges with others. You may, in fact, be so enrapt by your own thoughts and words spoken that you end up lumping in emotions, questionable assumptions, past, present and suppositions about the future all into one interaction. If that sounds like an overstuffed mouthful then you get my point. In other words, others can have a tough time understanding where you are coming from. These shifts in conscious pathways are simply too often too far away from this particular moment in time. While it may indeed seem everything is happening all at once only so much can take place at this very moment. I could be wasting my breath here – the cosmic pattern is sending out some pretty potent vibes exciting everyone’s atoms. Yet, despite the upswing in energy and increased likelihood of many a rebel yell getting this ‘party’ started it is unfolding at a minute to minute pace – every one worth being present for.
It will be useful to keep in mind that under the Lunar Eclipse in Pisces on the 25th the seeds of intention are formed by your state of mind. A powerful New Moon such as this is the most fertile of the year.
“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Sensible, practical Cappy things will be moving at a faster pace than you’ll perhaps be comfortable with this week. In truth it won’t be until the weekend and a few days thereafter when it becomes unquestionably obvious how much has been thrown up in the air. The Lunar Eclipse (equivalent of a powerful New Moon) in your active third house will indeed see you not only busier than normal but even a touch disorganized and even disoriented in the face of all these goings on. In order to combat the mentally destabilizing feel of not having everything in its normal place chances are you’ll be scurrying to put something in order (if only your mind). That is, any moment of calm you can find will have to be enough to refresh your reserves.
Navigating this array of uncertainties may actually do you some good – it can serve to inform beneficial new ways to settle. If, like most Capricorns your home or career has been subject to surprising changes as far back as mid 2010 this kind of thing is old hat isn’t it? Should any of the events threaten to ruffle those well placed feathers then, it may be useful to think back and remind yourself just how far you’ve come and how often you’ve been able to bounce back not to mention all the improvements that have happened along the way.
“Without change there is no innovation, creativity, or incentive for improvement. Those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable. “ William Pollard
That added boost of confidence that has seemingly come out of nowhere might not be enough to win over all the naysayers. While you can manage to push far and fast forward with your own agenda – almost as if on a mission above all missions you might want to take a gander at what’s going in the peripheral mirror. That is, by focusing so intently on what’s in front of you it is very possible you don’t notice who or what you are pushing out of the way to reach that currently elusive vision. Needless to say it probably isn’t a good idea to shun (intentionally or not) supporters or those with the potential of supporting you further down the road. Of course, that means taking the time to at least hear out the naysayers. However, it seems you’ve built up a significant amount of courage and confidence to remain standing tall despite attempts to dent your spirits.
The Lunar Eclipse in Pisces on the 25th works like a powerful New Moon allowing seeds of intention to blossom in full – for you that means increasing your earning potential.
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. “ – Winston Churchill
As much as you’d prefer to sit back and observe or hide away and engage in a prolonged period of contemplation that isn’t on the cosmic agenda this week. While you will have private time to yourself at the beginning of the week the Lunar Eclipse (a powerful New Moon) in your sign on the 25th brings you face to face with stuff you simply can’t ignore anymore. You may, in fact, feel compelled to change jobs, flaunt your worth where you’re at regardless of consequential reaction… the energy is somewhat unpredictable. However, you can probably bank on the idea that you aren’t going to let anyone stand in your way of you being you. Trying on that state of mind could actually bring about just the kind of opportunities you’ve been looking for – one that can add a little extra oomph to your pay packet to boot. Wish well on the New Moon Pisces – it was made for you and your dreams.
