Weekly horoscope (Feb. 2-8) 

Aquarius The Waterbearer

Mercury travels rapidly through your sign between now and Feb 21. During this period there likely will be greater emphasis on communications, errands and other short-distance travels. Your mind will be quick and your attitude persuasive. You are loaded with creative ideas. Keep a diary so as not to forget.

For All Signs: The Chinese New Year of the Golden Rabbit begins this week on Feb. 3. Rabbits being gentle creatures suggest a year in which the soft touch is auspicious. A "soft touch" means that we should not push or force things along. Persuasion is far better than power. The Year of the Rabbit favors those who are concerned with home and security, creating peace, cultivating growth, mothering and nurturing. This description is the very antithesis to our Western military industrialized complex. It will be interesting to observe whether the peacemakers or the warriors make more progress during this year. Chinese astrology is lunar-based, while Western astrology is solar- (seasonal) based. Each system is viable unto itself.

Aries: You have enough energy to spare. Apply heavy muscle to exercise or a chore that needs to be done. Otherwise you may become snappy and are liable to pick a fight. Work with those who share your rhythm this week so you won't be irritated by those who slow you down. We each have our own drumbeat and yours is probably faster than that of most people's now.

Taurus: It is possible that a relationship is coming to a closing phase. This could mean eventual separation later in the spring. On the other hand, it does not have to be permanent, and may represent preparation for moving into the next phase of growth. Allow change to enter the relationship. It breaks up general monotony.

Gemini: Your next focus will be mind-expanding. You may be researching a new interest, gazing over travel brochures for your next adventure, or pursuing an interest in philosophy or religion. You could become very interested in a gadget of high technology that might expand your horizons.

Cancer: During the next couple of weeks, it would serve you well to attend social gatherings and generally put yourself "out there." One or more people are likely to enter your life who help you make the connections that need to come next. It is possible that you encounter a potential for romance or partnership.

Leo: This is an unusually busy week. Your attention will be focused on clientele or significant others in your life environment. Changes "out there" will prompt you to shift this way and that in order to accommodate and defer to others. Your concentration is particularly good at this time.

Virgo: Focus your attention on new habits that will support your physical body and strengthen your mind. Meditation and yoga would be excellent ways. Your daily work routine will be very pleasant. New high-tech equipment may be on the horizon, which will help you to reorganize your files.

Libra: You have a steady mind and hands now. It is a good time to work on a project that requires concentration and careful work. Your stability will serve as a gift to those in your environment. Romance and all relationships are not exciting, but warmly rewarding.

Scorpio: Your energy level is stuck in high gear this week. You probably will want to pour it into taking care of property. Clean out closets and corners. Detail the car. If you do not apply that energy to muscle work you may become irritable and crabby. If you wake up in a bad mood, work out first thing and you'll feel much better.

Sagittarius: Early in the week an opportunity to expand your social life brings smiles. You may be invited to a party or you might meet someone new. This aspect is from Venus, goddess of love and creativity. The muse may be at your side as you produce a particularly creative idea or solution to a problem. Caution: don't spend more than you can really afford.

Capricorn: Venus enters your sign this week and will be traveling "with you" through the rest of February. Her presence gives you an air of poise and people will simply like how you look. Often when Venus is prominent we become more interested in art forms and want to make things in the environment more attractive. Your stability is a gift to others now.

Pisces: You are in an especially cordial frame of mind at this time, and likely to invite people to your home, or to share whatever you have to offer. Your spirits are high and you have a need to be social. You are interested in whatever feels luxurious, looks beautiful, or tickles the senses. Going overboard would be all too easy!
