HOROSCOPES FEB 13 TO FEB 19

By MARY MORRISON

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 to Feb 18)

There might be tension this weekend in your solar house of partnership, as the effects of last Monday’s lunar eclipse still linger. However, Sunday’s Moon brings a change of heart and a chance to make amends providing you are willing to forgive and forget. Mercury, the planet of communication, enters your sign on the night of the 14th but remember that certain words, once spoken, are seldom erased from the memory of the recipient! Good news is in the offing on Wednesday.

PISCES (Feb 19 to Mar 20)

Money seems to be going out at an alarming rate, causing you to tighten your belt over the weekend. However, you might start to feel more at ease on Sunday if you can put things into proper perspective by prioritising your outgoings. Monday’s aspect between the Moon and Uranus, currently in your sign, will aspire your thoughts toward better and bolder things once you have cleared your head of unnecessary clutter!

ARIES (Mar 21 to Apr 19)

Things might appear a little off centre this week but despite the fact that you are blessed with quick reactions and able to take on the toughest challenges. Patience is required, requiring you to sit tight and play a waiting game; something that is contrary to your nature! Saturn’s retrograde movement is likely to hold things up for a while but on the positive side, it gives you time to tie up any loose ends, from the past, that might be lurking in the background, ready to re emerge on Wednesday.  

TAURUS (Apr 20 to May 20)

You are likely to be in the mood to take a bold step this week, despite warning signals that might emanate from some who consider themselves more knowledgeable. Yours is a practical nature with an appreciation of fine things. You have the ability to blend the practical with the beautiful and as long as you do not stray from what you know, you cannot go wrong. The Moon’s conflict to Saturn on Wednesday, could upset your equilibrium but you should not waver from your commitment to your dream.

GEMINI (May 21 to Jun 21)

Surely you are almost there in your struggle for success of one kind or another and it will not do for you to fall at the last fence; neither is it necessary for you to call it a day. This week is likely to be a challenging one but you can overcome the odds by putting your mind at ease and waiting to see the results; sometimes things are better left to resolve themselves. The Sun enters the sign of Pisces, on Wednesday which should help lighten the load. Venus will lend you her charms on Wednesday and pave the way for romance.

CANCER (Jun 22 to Jul 22)

You might have been experiencing a slight difference of opinion between you and another family member, recently. Things have been a bit tense in your solar house of family matters, partly due to Saturn’s retrograde movement and partly due to your refusal to examine the full facts. The time has come to kiss and make up before the matter becomes irreparable; a situation you could regret. The Moon’s aspect to Mercury on Tuesday opens the door for clear communication.

LEO (Jul 23 to Aug 22)

Things are on the move for you, in your solar house of partnership, following Mercury’s entry into the sign of Aquarius tomorrow (Saturday) evening. This should give you a chance to express your true feelings without fear of saying the wrong thing, or that your words might fall on deaf ears. There are signs of activity on the financial front on Tuesday, which could indicate the tide is turning in your favour. However, you will need to keep a tight rein on expenditure for a while. Thursday is your lucky day.

VIRGO (Aug 23 to Sep 22)

Some might say you have been keeping yourself to yourself lately and that you have adopted the habit of playing your cards close to your chest. The truth of the matter is likely to be that you are conserving your thoughts and your energy for the road that lies ahead and that you are simply aware of the necessity to remain circumspect. Mercury enters your solar house of health and employment, on the 14th which should help you to make progress during the course of this week.

LIBRA (Sep 23 to Oct 23)

You might have had the feeling of being trapped in a situation of your own making. However, this does not mean you deserve to remain in this spot of bother and given a day or two, with some practical application, you are bound to find a way out. Mercury, the planet of movement and communication, enters the sign of Aquarius on the 14th which should help the wheels of progress to run more smoothly. Tuesday is a good day to make plans for travel, especially for business purposes.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 to Nov 21)

It is anyone’s guess as to what goes on in the minds of the young but this is of little consolation if you happen to be a parent. Mercury brings a glimmer of hope on the 14th as things start to improve on the communications front though. Monday’s aspect between Venus and Mars is likely to kindle a spark or two, which could ignite a flame of passion within affairs of the heart. Tuesday brings a bright spot on the business front and Wednesday could bring an opportunity for a financial bonus.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 to Dec 21)

Despite Saturn’s retrograde motion and the fact that others seem to be falling like ninepins, your morale remains high, thanks to the optimism generated by the presence of your ruling planet, Jupiter, in the sign of Aquarius. This does not mean you lack concern for the plight of others. A friend is likely to prevail upon your good nature this weekend and you will come to the rescue. The effects of Wednesday’s conjunction between Mars and Jupiter will likely open your eyes to the fact that you are indeed fortunate.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 19)

You might be concerned for a family member but it might do more harm than good for you to interfere. Allowing sleeping dogs to lie, might be the best one to adopt, at least until Monday, when certain facts should come to light and you will know what you are dealing with. Tuesday’s conjunction, between the fiery Mars and the generous Jupiter, might raise optimism levels, particularly in the financial sense. However, Saturn’s retrograde movement still counsels the need for circumspection on Thursday.
