Your heightened sensitivities may cause you a bit of distress for a bit. What may also exacerbate this is your inclination to act on things before they’ve fully registered in your perceptions. You must work at anchoring your thoughts and feelings before you allow yourself to react. Otherwise you may find yourself in irreversible circumstances.
Conversely, your urge toward quick reactions may also allow you to take advantage of opportunities you might have previously passed up due to intimidation, guilt or childhood generated inhibitions. This seems like a paradox but what is necessary now is a balancing of your feelings and actions. As of December this has become a little bit more workable than it has been in the past two and a half years. Even though your responsibilities have accumulated, your ability to handle them has also done so. This is a time of enforced grounding for you.
As health issues play an important part in your “durability” in handling the outside world, your past performance and its relation to your current health will come to the surface toward the end of the year. Assess and take care of now whatever has given you the impression that something is “off.” You might not now be able to pinpoint its source but if something health wise has been troubling you or beginning to change in your constitution or demeanor, deal with it now before it grows into something that will demand a lot more time and energy to overcome. Our feelings are an especially powerful contributor to the condition of our health, especially, for water signs such as Pisces.
Right now the energy available in your career is at your fingertips. Strike while the iron is hot. Take a few risks that you might not have considered before. It may surprise you in how such small efforts might produce such large and sweeping circumstances. This will also serve as a venting for the emotional tsunami pushing on your senses. Venting allows clarity and focus to prevail over irrational emotional reactions. If ever there was a need to go with the flow, it is now.
February 2018 Astrolights
We begin our month with a loaded twelfth house squaring Mars in Sagittarius in the ninth. The Sun, Neptune, Mercury and Venus square him from Pisces. This will give tremendous reactive power but coming from an unconscious source. With the full Moon in Virgo occurring on the 2nd, this should produce some rather intense and, perhaps, unexpected occurrences. Jupiter’s rulership of both signs will tend to augment the energy. This is a time to be cautious and thoughtful about the actions we take. Tempers may also run hot. We should be especially careful with driving since the tendency to take chances will be prevalent.
With the loaded twelfth house opposing the sixth house of health and the full Moon occurring there, health issues will be of prime concern. The open end of this T-square vents through Gemini making verbal communications overly intense and brings the health focus to our limbs, lungs and nervous system. The Gemini influence also brings short distance travel and automobiles into the mix. Extra caution is advisable.
On the 9th Jupiter in Scorpio turns retrograde. This means that Jupiter is at station for most of the T-square adding intensity to all the circumstances described above.
On the 17th the Moon becomes new in Pisces, again, receiving an added boost from its ruler, Jupiter. This is a time to not let our feelings overcome our common sense and rationality. Our imagination will be accelerated. This will radically increase our creativity but also our paranoia. Make sure you have a creative endeavor to funnel the extra energy into. This way you will be assured of staying grounded during the emotional tidal wave.
Mars also moves into Capricorn on the 17th. This will begin a deflation in the momentum produced by the Pisces/Sagittarius square. However, as Mars approaches Saturn, also in Capricorn, a feeling of compression will begin to take place. This makes it all the more important to have a place to funnel the pressure into such as a creative endeavor or sporting activity. Since Capricorn is an earth sign, the vehicle for venting must be of a physical nature.
On the 20th the Sun moves to the vernal equinox. New endeavors must be planned and prepared for in the preceding three weeks. Using the energy produced by the previous aspects will provide ample fuel for powering the new projects we put into the oven. Have a great month!
