Horoscope for Feb. 4-10, 2009 

Aquarius The Waterbearer: (Jan. 19-Feb. 18)

Mars is entering your sign, adding its weight to five other bodies already in residence. It will be traveling with you for seven weeks. This energy is best used to handle physically heavy projects or take initiatives that you might not otherwise tackle. Take extra good care of your physical self.

For All Signs: Saturn, ruler of the status quo, is in dramatic tension with Uranus, planet of change and even rebellion. These are powerhouse planets with diametrically opposed energies. The resulting stress has been building for a year and will continue even into the year 2010. Each of us is struggling with a pull between the need for change, making the break for freedom, and our desire to maintain worldly security. The ideal solution is one that generates a creative alteration without totally annihilating stability. If you are feeling this energy, be aware it is not simply a phase or a mood. It is a message to be taken seriously and handled consciously.

Aries: Your attention naturally shifts toward plans for the future and finding ways to meet your goals. The probability is high that you will be leading or joining activities that call for cooperation from one or more groups of people for the next several weeks.

Taurus: You have a need to be alone and quiet during this period. That is why social life is not going so well. Give attention to your inner life and notice what your thoughts may be manifesting. Is it really what you want in your future? Think carefully. Your night dreams may provide good clues.

Gemini: You will be pleased to know that Mercury turned direct on Feb. 1. In the next few weeks it would be prudent to review recent financial or investment decisions. Perhaps you miscalculated and need to revise. Issues of intimacy that have been confusing will now become more clarified.

Cancer: The deeply sensitive Cancerian is treading water between two eclipses. The first was Jan. 26 and the second is Feb. 9. For many there will be an experience of manifestation or illumination about situations that have been long in the making. It is a time to look upon the facts, for better or worse.

Leo: We have the eclipsed Full Moon in Leo on Monday. Old, festering resentments between people in your life could result in explosive behavior if you act on childish impulses. The danger of this period is that we are prone to make decisions with our pride rather than our minds.

Virgo: Your ruling planet, Mercury, has been retrograde in the territory that rules children, creative efforts and love life. Anything in these territories has likely been unsettled for awhile. Now the puzzle pieces will gradually begin to fall into place.

Libra: You are presented with a deep fear for your personal security. A partner (business or personal) may be pulling the strings. Obsessing is not productive, though you will likely be tempted to do so. Change is on the immediate horizon. It may turn out to be the best thing that happens for you.

Scorpio: Your focus shifts at this time to matters of home, property and family. Through the next seven weeks you may be handling heavy work around your home, and/or making repairs. Your temper will be short if you don't pour big-muscle energy into something. Don't "use" others or allow them to "use" you.

Sagittarius: You probably notice that you are in the stream of things during this period. All you really need to do is allow the flow to take you where it will. On the immediate horizon is a new development or activity that will carry you even further in the direction you should go.

Capricorn: You are harboring a secret attitude about a loved one. You may think it is not visible, but it erodes the core of the relationship. The probability is high that it is critical of yourself or the Other. Maybe a change does need to happen, but it is not useful to pressure its creation with blame.

Pisces: One side of you is devoted to maintaining the status quo and following the rules. Another side of you is the rebel deluxe, the one who always colors outside the lines. You probably feel much more comfortable in one mode or the other. Whichever way is your norm, you now encounter your opposite.
