THIS WEEK’S UPDATE
Planetary Shifts of February—2012
February is Heart Month and brings Inspired Magic
It’s the month of Valentine’s Day
It’s Time to Make a Choice
The Full Moon is on Tuesday the 7th in the signs of Leo and urges you to open your heart and project your creative passion into the world. This Full Moon represents the need to bring forth your natural talents and mastery. Use the next few weeks to allow yourself to show the world what you can do.
The Sun Sign Aquarius asks you to step back and see the larger picture. So you need to get involved, but not dragged into the drama of others.
Spiritual Neptune moved into psychic Pisces on Feb. 3rd, and will be passing through the sign of illusions and daydreams for the next 14 years. Since planets are most comfortable in their home signs, and Neptune rules Pisces, this will be a particularly powerful shift. Neptune rules our ideals, dreams and hopes, and Pisces our compassion. When they get together, they have the power to break down individual and global boundaries.
Neptune also rules drugs and alcohol. Some wonderful new medical breakthroughs are on the way to us. Be careful with your medications over the next few weeks, as well as your use of alcohol.
It is time to create a new vision; time to open to new worlds, thoughts and ideas. Be willing to open your inner vision to allow in whatever is next in your life. Instead of wearing yourself out searching for your next project open up to allow it to come to you. Just know that it’s on the way into your life.
Restructuring Saturn is also turning retrograde until June 25th. Begin to finish major shifts in relationships, as well as changing beliefs and behaviors. The old ways of participating in and reacting to relationships are birthing a new way, so practice adaptability as you open to all types of new relationships. Practice self-love first this Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day activities are hot and romantic this weekend; and more social-friendly on Tuesday, the 14th.
Finally, Venus enters Aries for the rest of February. It is time to pioneer a new path in areas of love and money. On a spiritual level, Venus is associated with healing and stepping into a higher value system.

If you are looking for love, then don’t frequent your usual haunts – try somewhere new. A gift that you purchase for someone special turns out to have a surprisingly profound effect on them.

Things could begin to get better. It may be time to reorganize your approach to love and romance, perhaps not forever, but certainly for now. The current celestial atmosphere may encourage you to do something a little more unconventional. If you want to take advantage of the current cosmic climate, then you could even plan to be different. Try wearing different clothes, going out to different places, and becoming involved in activities that you have never before attempted. The upshot will be a fascinating day, and possibly a very interesting meeting. If you are looking for someone special, then don’t go about this through the normal channels; you won’t have much luck. Try going out to places you haven’t been before, where you can meet the kinds of people who can open up new horizons for you. If you had planned on going out with your loved one, don’t expect everything to go smoothly, as this week could mean that quite a few unexpected events will occur. However, if you can cope with the disruption, this won’t actually be a bad thing, and may even be very positive, as you meet up with others who may change your lives in significant ways. A surprise meeting at work may transform your week into something a little more delightful than normal. The stars indicate that someone will breeze into your life, sweeping away your usual concepts of how a relationship should begin or continue, and also create an opportunity for you to get to know them a lot better. Some great times lie ahead for you, Air Signs!

It may also happen that you meet a person who brings a breath of fresh air into your life. Anything that inspires you to greater things is welcome. Although you can be very loyal to a cause or a person, sometimes long after your relationship has ceased to be profitable, you may begin to feel the stirrings of discontent as far as one particular partnership is concerned. You feel distinctly nervous about one particular relationship. This could mean that you feel a sense of restriction rather than happiness. Now you may choose to do something about this. If you are going out on a date, then you may get to appreciate a whole new side to your close friend, and one that you may not have suspected was present in their nature. If this discovery heightens their appeal well and good, if not—you know what to do. Secretly you Fire Signs enjoy being shocked, although you wouldn’t actually admit to this. The auspicious planetary alignment may bring you an even bigger surprise than you had anticipated. A meeting with someone who only looks normal, but in fact has a very unique approach to living could revolutionize your love life. Although you may not let them know how impressed you are, secretly you are bowled over. You may not find your date to be particularly romantic, but it certainly won’t be boring. This week’s Stargazing energy practically guarantees that you will have a bizarre and fascinating time, and because the person in question will also exhibit great charm and charisma, you may even be tempted to repeat the experience again.
