There could be misunderstandings involving friends or finances, as Mercury is retrograde until February 21. Saturn squares Uranus on Wednesday and Thursday, which could also affect your bank balance or your peer group. Despite the disruptions, keep your dreams alive! Your motto for the week is from birthday great, writer Anais Nin. “Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back. A new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.”
Are you tired of being a paddock-bound Bull? This week the planets rev up your usually tentative Taurean nature and you’ll feel more restless than usual. So it’s time to break free from boring boundaries, go free-range and start exploring the world around you (in Covid safe ways). With Mars and Uranus both transiting through your sign, be bold and brave! Draw inspiration from birthday great, writer Anais Nin. “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”
A much-cherished goal or dream has temporarily been put on hold. With Uranus, Saturn and retrograde Mercury all stirring up your international wanderlust zone, it will be a while before you can escape on a globe-trotting adventure again. So make sure you are patient and stay Covid safe! Look for exciting travel options in your own neck-of-the-woods. And don’t plan any social events or local getaways until after Sunday February 21, when Mercury finally moves forward.
Mercury is reversing through your $$$ zone (until Sunday February 21) so avoid being too blasé about a complicated issue (especially involving intimacy, trust, taxes, income, property, possessions or joint finances). A close relationship is also going through a rapid metamorphosis. Don’t hold onto the past … it’s time to jump out of your Crab comfort zone and move on. Keep what’s working in your life and let go of what isn’t. The trick is knowing which is which.
Be extra careful how you give and receive information (especially in close relationships) as Mercury is still reversing through your partnership zone. If you have doubts or concerns, then don’t hesitate to double-check. Plus avoid making major purchases, starting joint ventures or signing important contracts until after Sunday February 21. Instead be patient and focus your attention on revising, researching or reworking current projects. When it comes to work, expect the unexpected!
Mercury (your patron planet) is currently reversing through your work and wellbeing zone. So it’s not a good time to initiate a professional project, apply for a promotion or look for a new job. Instead, wait until after Mercury goes direct on February 21. When it comes to a problem with a friend or colleague, avoid being impatient. There are no quick fixes at the moment. It’s a case of one step forwards and two steps backwards but if you are persistent, you’ll eventually make progress.
When it comes to sport, children, romance, friendship, creativity or hobbies, be proactive and shake things up. If you sit on the fence and let things slide, then change will come in a more radical form that’s harder to manage. Is it time to review and refresh your peer group list, and add some exciting new faces? Be inspired by birthday great, writer Anais Nin. “Each friend represents a world in us, a world not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”
Prepare for some drama, as retrograde Mercury stirs up issues with a relative or friend. Use your substantial diplomatic talents to find practical solutions to potential problems. The stars encourage ambitious plans and you’re keen to impress others, but don’t promise more than you can realistically deliver. The more stubborn you are Scorpio, the more difficult the week will be. It’s time to shake up your daily domestic routine and blast into exciting new relationship territory!
Expect some frustrations and delays, as retrograde Mercury confuses communication and slows things down. Try not to over-react. There will always be work to complete and mountains to climb. But perhaps a close friend or colleague needs your attention and affection right here and right now? Saturn (the planet of structure) squares Uranus (the planet of improvisation). So do your best to get the ratio right between being an organised Archer and a spontaneous Sagittarius.
Money matters look confusing, as Mercury reverses through your financial zone until next Sunday. And is a personal matter or a professional project weighing you down? Strive to get the balance right between fulfilling your responsibilities to other people and creating change for yourself. Uranus demands that you let go of some old habits, routines and beliefs that are no longer serving you. Then there will be room for new experiences, opportunities and people to come into your world.
With Mercury reversing through your sign (and Saturn squaring Uranus) prepare for a few frustrating problems to head your way. Making a snap decision seems like a good idea but it could backfire badly and think twice before you blurt out something controversial that you later regret. You need to be clever and uncharacteristically cautious, as you consider situations carefully before you respond. You’re hungry for change but don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater!
Five planets (including Saturn and retrograde Mercury) are transiting through your self-sabotage zone, so there’s a tendency to be pessimistic. Despite the challenges, don’t give up Pisces … keep going! Your motto for the week is from basketball legend (and birthday great) Michael Jordan, “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” Channel your energy into meditation, contemplation, relaxation, yoga, journal writing and being kind to yourself.
