For week of February 28-March 6, 2002

For All Signs On February 28, Mercury returns to the position in the zodiac where the recent retrograde began (January 18). This suggests that projects, ideas, or plans, which began in January will now be concluded with greater ease. Things which are just too problematic to pursue can be dropped. Although Mercury is technically retrograde for three and a half weeks, the period just before and just after are shadowed by the characteristic indecisiveness, though less pronounced. In an ideal world, we would use the Mercury retrograde periods to stop, reevaluate, reconsider, and re-envision.

Aries You are entering a new phase of attention that will continue through mid-April. Issues of money and resources, or matters of personal values will be prominent as motivators. Be aware of the temptation to identify with that which you deem important, whether it is a material object or an idea. Do not confuse your individual identity with these things of the world.

Taurus Mars, the red planet of war, enters your sign this week and will be traveling with you for six weeks. This energy is best used to handle physically heavy projects or take initiatives that you might not otherwise tackle. If you are not choosing to deal honestly with this assertive energy, the common side effect is irritability. It is healthier to take charge of it.

Gemini Give serious thought to whether or not you are actually required to carry all the burdens that worry you these days. It is possible others do not expect of you what you expect of yourself. Do what you can and what seems "right." But give equal responsibility to others involved. Look for encouraging news from a distance or on behalf of your partner.

Cancer Moon Children tend to swing slowly between introversion and extroversion. Just right now you may feel caught in the middle. Your social needs and obligations are interfering with time that you need to recharge on the interior. Both are equally important. If you find yourself feeling irritable, things are out of balance.

Leo Challenges continue this week and you likely will see what is working in your life and what is not. That which is working will prove its value. That which is not calls for change and practical adaptation. A plan, generated early in December, comes to a decision point now. You must recommit or let it go. The choice is yours.

Virgo This is an excellent time to tackle cleaning and organizing projects. Your mind is clear and you can determine readily whether a thing is worth keeping and where it belongs. If it has no value, you can throw it away or find a new owner without a sense of guilt. Every so often Virgos need to clean. It is a means of ordering the countless details that float in your mind.

Libra There is a conflict between your head and your heart during this period. Your mind knows you need to be attending to responsibilities and projects. Meanwhile your heart wants to take a vacation, explore new territory, and meet new people. Use care in communications with significant others. Aspects suggest the possibility of accidental misunderstandings.

Scorpio The next few weeks is focused heavily on the "others" in your life and the state of your relationships. Look for ways to renew and share energy with your partner, business associates and close friends. Your ego may be tempted to pressure others into agreement to support your self image, but you know equanimity is more effective.

Sagittarius Your ruling planet is Jupiter, otherwise known as Zeus in mythology. For several weeks it has been in apparent stationary position, but now it turns to direct motion. This suggests your recent hesitation to act is beginning to dissipate. You will soon be feeling more certain of yourself and your choice of direction. Meanwhile take your time. Don't act until you are ready.

Capricorn Healing of physical or emotional ailments is the subject of your attention this week. You may be drawn to resources or methods outside the traditional and culturally approved. The Goats, while normally conservative, are most interested in what appears to work when solving a problem. You may find solutions in alternative treatments.

Aquarius Your ability to see the big picture or the long perspective will prove invaluable this week. An opportunity may arise which will allow you to persuasively communicate your perceptions with those in power. Aspects favor your visibility and influence now.

Pisces It continues to be important to maintain control of your thought processes. You could readily slide into anxiety over things that have not yet happened. If you begin to worry, choose instead to do whatever will help you contact your spiritual core. Read material that restores your faith and helps you to remain in the present moment. Right this second you know you are fine.
