In the peaceful light of perfect openness, nothing is hidden and therefore nothing is fearful. The thousands of petty judgements that the ego offers will always yield to love.
The famous mythological lovers, Venus and Mars, are side by side in sweet talking Pisces for Valentine’s Day. You must feel your way through some deep visionary waters. But who’s going to make the first move?
The power of your decisions can restore a broken link, or keep it forever separate.
The Force of selective forgetting is with you.
Here’s your horoscope for the week of February 8th - 14th, 2015:
ARIES ☀ (March 21-April 19)
You begin this week with a graceful charm and mellow mood. Ideas that you’ve mulled over will find solutions when Mental Mercury picks up the pace beginning Wednesday. Your mind sharpens. Communications make a course correction and get back on track (machines too). You have an unusual degree of acceptance and understanding in your relationships right now. Someone may need to lean on your shoulder and you’re glad to offer solace. This is not a time in which you get obvious credit for the good work you do. It’s a time for more yoga and meditation to help you be content with being in the background for awhile. Valentine’s Day has a cool reserve, but has a stabilizing effect on your relationships.

And, you are ready to live up to the rep you’ve earned, “you’ve never been loved ‘til you’ve been loved by a Leo.” Put it on a Valentine and deliver it with the strong emotional intensity that you feel this week. Your words are deeply meaningful, never superficial. You’re loving the bottom line!

If you can harness your aggressive Mars energies, and rely more on Venus for an attitude of cooperation, your relationships will have a perfect balance between “his needs-her needs.” I use the word “perfect” with caution, given your natural drive for perfection, however you’re going to come pretty close to it.

P.S. In celebration and gratitude to the thousands upon thousands who practice forgiveness every day, as if their lives depended on it, and have found forgiveness by taking responsibility for their own behavior: “Selfishness, self-centeredness! That, we think, is the root of our troubles. Driven by a hundred forms of fear, self-delusion, self-seeking, and self-pity, we step on the toes of our fellows and they retaliate. Sometimes they hurt us, seemingly without provocation, but we invariably find that at some time in the past we have made decisions based on self which later placed us in a position to be hurt. So our troubles, we think, are basically of our own making.” Alcoholics Anonymous
