Life is but your dream

Row, row, row your boat, but you still won’t get very far in the dreamy fog of Pisces.  
Deadlines or finish lines just don’t have the same ol’ appeal when five planets, including the Sun, are waterlogged in Pisces.  

Wednesday is tip-the-boat-over day!  The Moon in Cancer adds yet more water, sinking the majority of the zodiac, and sliding your dreams into the the visionary seas of compassion, intensity, and sensitivity.

Rethinking your  reality is added to the celestial waterworks Saturday when Messenger Mercury starts doing the backstroke through his retrograde motion.  Communications may have a dull edge, but they’re loaded with intuitive understanding for the next three weeks.  

And the falling fireballs around the globe?  An outward manifestation of tensions we’ve experienced since Uranus entered Aries in March 2011.  See my blog August 6, 2011:  “Lightning bolts out of the blue are the speciality of Uranus, who has added Aries fireball tips to his usual Wake-Up! calls...The rocketing energy for change is sudden and unexpected...”

Date Night:  Venus and Mars
Can we get our oars in sync? Not quite yet, but next Monday your heart and your desires get together again.  Stay tuned.

Merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.

The Force of hopes & dreams is with you.
Here’s your horoscope for the week of February 17, 2013:
(★ Astrology Wonks see bottom of page)

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
No seriously, if you didn’t think life could get any soggier, it can!  You haven’t lost your logical reasoning, it’s just that you are flooded with impressions.  The good news is you can gain valuable ideas and knowledge is you trust your intuition.  The Moon sails your emotions into the watery realm of Cancer on Wednesday, tipping your thoughts toward the past.  Your ideas are timeless and you communicate less aggressively.  Truth is you’d rather sit back and think things over, at least for the next three weeks.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is a week that pulls on your heart strings.  Your week starts with an easy going self assurance, feeling in sync with your self.  Life’s challenging you to a daring adventure to rethink your past and question some memories.  Just like Luke Skywalker entering the dark cave, you have the opportunity to unmask your fear.  Your thinking is loaded, wave upon wave, with original ideas and a love of truth.  Your compassion for others is boundless right now, and leads you to some profound insights about large social problems. 
  The avatar message, “I see you,” is spreading like water into your living room. 

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
It’s cosmic osmosis.  Sweet winks from the Gemini Moon to Venus in Aquarius on Tuesday morning adds a touch of class to the next three days.   Mental Mercury, your ruling planet, goes retrograde this Saturday, this time in poetic Pisces.  You’ll find yourself dabbling in the past, thinking about do-overs.  But messages you find there will enrich your vision.   Acting on your ideas is sluggish, like trying to run through deep water, until March 17th.
The axis of your world is tilting so heavily, your dreams are sliding home. 

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Tsunamis of imagination fill your week.  The  stay-at-home Cancer Moon swells your emotions beginning Wednesday, adding grace and poetry to your intuition.  Thursday is extremely powerful!  You’ll be shaken by the depth of feeling and intensity of the revelations you’ll experience, but you’ll have a comforting and stable ground under your feet.  Your sea legs have you scurrying with productive actions that are right time right place.  Plus, your mind gathers smart ideas as you go, perfect for communicating, absolutely anything!

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Challenge yourself to believe in your hopes and dreams.  James Hillman said the most creative act is to let your mind join with the imagination of a child.  Do it.  While you’re sleeping Wednesday night, the stars overhead will be getting in touch with their feelings!  And yours will be overflowing!  Expect to feel uncomfortably sentimental, probably at inconvenient times.  You’ll be back to your in-sync self starting Saturday afternoon, when the Moon in fiery Leo holds her own against the Pisces tides.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Stay flexible and light on your feet because the ground shakes under your feet this week, upending the drawer with all you neatly folded socks.  All the water planets are lined up in direct opposition to your Virgo Sun, challenging you to integrate their qualities.  If you don’t get caught in a boundary-less whirlpool of memories, you can visualize your future as if it were here and now.  Should I pull out that old manuscript and take another look?  If I had greater compassion for my mistakes, would I dance more?

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Breathing underwater is impossible without some assistance.  This week you’ll get dizzy with the depth of your sympathies and empathy, unless you test out the reality of your hunches and feelings with someone you trust.   Boundaries are washed away in Piscean waters, making it hard to remember your limits.  You make decisions without really knowing where they’re going to take you, and you’re really not all that interested either!  The beauty is, you can only see what’s right in front of you and you can make the whole journey that way.  

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
You are comfortable in deep water, so the gallons of tears, fears, and sympathies coming to you from Pisces are harmoniously and easily handled.  Like the breathtaking adventure of exploring sunken treasure, you can make the next three weeks a journey without limits.  Pluto, the lord of the underworld is your muse, so you can look death itself in the face without losing your self.  Your intuition is uncanny this week, just go with the tides.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
You’ve left the realm of reason and will be swimming in illusions this week.  Your characteristic fiery enthusiasm has some dampness from an overly sympathetic group of planets in watery Pisces.  Your ability to visualize thoughts and memories from the past is acute right now, even though there’s a confused fog about where those ideas are coming from.  Get agreements and contracts signed before the end of the week.  

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
For the next three weeks, your mind crosses the self-imposed limits of linear thinking.  It can be confusing or creative, depending on your belief in yourself.  Are you a lost soul or a heroine on a holy mission?  You decide.  You’re not one to just go with the flow, but the compassionate waters of Pisces bring you a beautiful mountain stream to refresh your imagination with treasures from your memories.   Put logic aside a moment and you’ll have a better view of where your quest is taking you.   Now is not the time for aggressive action.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Like an underwater repairman, you can salvage your forgotten dreams.  Now’s the time to resurrect your abandoned art, to clean off your brushes and paint again.  Don’t tell anyone else, hold this sacred creative space close to your heart.  The goddess of love, still in your sign until next Monday, gives the artist in you some practical, business minded help to bring your work to the public.  Your imagination knows no bounds.

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)
You’re trying to catch your breath while swimming in the deep, sometimes dark, waters of the collective unconscious mind.  When the Sun moves into your sign Monday, you are in sync  with the ideas of visionary physics, where mass is created and changed.  Take advantage of this very auspicious time, when you are psychically in tune with your ability to create your own reality.  Your Pisces Sun joins visionary Neptune Wednesday morning, adding telepathy but blurring your boundaries on reality.  Take time to meditate.
