Magical magnetism of Mars in Pisces

A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history.  Mahatma Gandhi

Lofty ideals and impractical romanticism are the ethereal boundarylessness that you’ll be sorting out under the influence of Warrior Mars in Pisces.  And this Tuesday Mental Mercury joins in for an extended stay in Pisces, through April 14th.  

Don’t the twin Pisces fish remind you of the interrelated forces of yin-yang?  Apparent opposites experienced as cooperative parts of a compassionate whole, is the exquisite compassion of the spiritual warrior.   

Wednesday the world’s greatest philanthropist knocks at your door, is happily struck by cupid’s arrow, and falls wildly in love with you!  

Saturday ends your week on a note of new beginnings with the New Moon in Aquarius at 11:21 PM, PDT.  Plant your new ideas as intentions that will bear fruit for you by February 25th, the Full Moon in Virgo.

A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.                                                                       Mahatma Gandhi
The Force of a spiritual warrior is with you.

♡ Date Night  A warm-up of heartfelt, deeply empathic connections with one another make for an early start for Valentine’s Day.  Even if you’re not into hearts and flowers, you’ll feel like paying-it-forward in forgiveness.  There’s a risk of going too far, but order and restraint will corral outlandishly lavish Valentine’s purchases.  Don’t let it put a wet blanket on writing that love song.  

Here’s your horoscope for the week of February 3, 2013:
(★ Astrology Wonks see bottom of page)

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
Do not mistake the inability of water to resist the plunge of a rock as weakness.  Your Aries warrior puts aside his sword, in favor of solitary contemplation, for the next five weeks.  You may not feel as energized as usual, but if you allow this time for dreaming, your future will take off on incredible new initiatives after March 11th.  Saturday night’s New Moon finds you with a powerful emotional need to be with friends and enjoy their companionship.  Sympathy and empathy bring you closer to someone, probably someone new.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Now’s the time to actively pursue the goals you have formulated, but don’t go it alone.  You’re working today for what you’ll bring about tomorrow.  It’s a very productive time for working in groups.  The big star studded line up of planets in your compatible sign, Pisces, stimulates your love of art and music, a healing source for you.  Saturday marks a quietly contemplative New Moon in which you can set powerful intentions for achievements and recognition of your hard work that will come in the next two weeks.  Look for women to help you into a place of prominence.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You’re signed up for a five week crash course in communicating effectively under stressful conditions.  It’s a time for you to achieve a great deal by your own individual initiative, but watch out for coworkers who feel threatened by you.  Wednesday is a very happy day full of abundance and love.  Look for inspired intuitive promptings during the dark hours of Saturday night’s New Moon.  Your intentions are set with feelings and imagination as your guiding light.  
Cancer (June 21-July 21)
The wind is filling your sails for very creative intellectual work during the next five weeks.  You’ll be very assertive in defending your beliefs, whether or not others agree with you.  You’re getting a black belt in Mental Judo.  Lots of warrior energy is coming your way through the Pisces doors of selfless action by teaching others how to think out of the box.  Saturday’s New Moon pumps psychic sensitivity into your very imaginative mind. Go ahead, read their minds!

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Just think of yourself as a hibernating bear!  For the next 5 weeks your actions are best directed to behind the scenes work, albeit with a flare for art and music.  If you find you’ve pulled out your Samurai sword, it’s to defend what you value--especially in the area of jointly held resources.  The week heads toward an emotionally expressive New Moon on Saturday.  It will be hard to stay objective, but do.  The love, support and security from your close personal relationships are very important now.  Your freedom is expanded by breaking old patterns.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You may find yourself focused on fixing things that are already perfect!  Especially your personal relationships.  From now until the ides of March, you’ll find yourself in situations requiring you to teach that compromise is not the same thing as giving in.  This may first require an uncomfortable airing of grievances.  Wednesday may find you buying lavish gifts, after all Valentine’s is coming!  The New Moon in Aquarius tops off your week with the need to go back and claim those feelings you’ve repressed in order to get work done.  

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Keep nothing bottled up!  Throwing yourself into your work will be the perfect use of your aggressive energies over the next five weeks.  You’ll be happiest working on your own.  Conflicts arise over who gets credit for what if you’re in a corporate environment.  Wednesday is your Lucky Day for love and gifts.   The New Moon Saturday opens your love experiences to greater depths.  Feeling very empathic and connected, it’s a fabulous time for new love and new friends who will benefit you.  Creativity and romance are off the charts!

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
“Use your words, please!” Playful, competitive and determined to be yourself, you’re in a very self-assertive mood for the next five weeks.  Anything you’ve been holding in is coming out!  Your emotions and desires are strong, so woe to the one who suggests you postpone getting what you want!  A sudden urge for lavish overindulgence takes you over this Wednesday, so might as well make it something you can actually use.  The New Moon Saturday will prick feelings of possessiveness or jealousy which haven’t been expressed.  Pick one friendly confidante, rather than putting it out there for all to hear.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
You may find yourself in the middle of a courageous fight, but you don’t know what you’re fighting for!  During the next five weeks you get one of your most difficult challenges--you must keep a low profile.  Even taking the back seat.  If you happen to be in Vegas Wednesday you’ll bet the house!  And probably win.  The urge to travel will be strong.  Saturday's New Moon marks new a time of gut level communications that will be quite meaningful.  Just leave the past behind.  It has nothing to do with your future.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
During the next five weeks you’ll be writing a new chapter on Verbal Judo.  The not so gentle art of persuasion will be your forte, allowing you to surf through conflicts and the increased tempo of your life.  Your energies and opinions are so strong that a good neighbor fence will help keep the peace.  Your mental processes are orderly, you’ll probably have dreams of great import.  The New Moon Saturday may incline you to stubbornness about holding onto what’s yours, because it’s the security of being surrounded by your familiar treasures that brings you greatest happiness.  

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
With just a few small irritating exceptions, this week is going to be a fabulous game changer for you!  Some touchy sensitivity about money and possessions can get in the way of your relationships with others, so wear your wealth like a loose garment and put your credit cards on ice for the next five weeks.  You will protect yourself and come out on top.  In fact, Wednesday will bring good fortune and luck.  And the New Moon on Saturday in your sign is an important pivotal point in your year.  A sense of well being fills you, as if everything thing and everyone you need surrounds you with warmth and a deep comfort.  You know you decide what happens next.

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)
Show the world what you can do!  You’re a spiritual warrior who’s mastering the fine art of defusing hostile situations, and asserting yourself even when you feel uncertain about your own strength.  In the five weeks ahead emotions are heightened, and so is compassion.  You express yourself with a powerful influence.  With the cluster of planets in your sign right now, it’s a time of alchemy.  You can turn your shy withdrawl into a golden inner space of healing that radiates compassion for yourself.  The war is over, you’ve won.
