The Astrology of Today - All Signs

February 8, 2016

An early morning sextile between Venus and Chiron softens our disposition, and might offer us a chance to heal our personal relationships. We more easily see beauty in human weaknesses. A semi-square between Mercury and Neptune, however, can point to some tendency to see what we want to see and gloss over facts. A New Moon occurs in the sign of Aquarius at 9:40 AM EST, marking the beginning of a new cycle. Friendship, brotherhood, group activities, social pursuits, group projects, trying something new, humanitarian efforts, or joining a group can come into strong focus. New beginnings regarding all of these matters are possible now. With this potent Aquarius energy, we have the chance to make progressive changes in our lives. For some of us, circumstances are such that we need to pay more attention to these matters. This New Moon's square to Mars emphasizes the impulsive energy of a New Moon. However, we have the opportunity to come up with very workable ideas that are also innovative. The Moon is in Aquarius all day.

This Week in Astrology




This Month: Cancer

February 2016

There is strong focus on relationships this month, dear Cancer, as well as good energy for communications, learning, and financial matters. This is not a time for pushing your personal agenda, but developing your connections with others is strongly favored.

Benefits come from pairing up with friends and partners to accomplish your goals. People tend to be more helpful and pleasant with you in the first two weeks of February. This is a time for negotiating, compromising, and flattery or diplomacy. At the moment, one-to-one relating tends to trump more casual or group connections. A meeting of minds or a partnering opportunity is very likely, particularly around the 8-9. There is positive, uplifting energy for relating. You are a little more spontaneous than usual, and others are open to change and progress as well. Putting your head together with someone, you might come up with a great idea or opportunity.

Mars continues to excite your creative and romantic impulses all month, and while there is much focus on diplomatic relations, this transit adds some verve and assertiveness to the mix, helping to balance things out. You are especially attracted to people who seem certain or sure of their lives at this time, and on the 2-3, you might enjoy a good feeling of comfortable intimacy with someone you care about. However, if you want to make some changes to your relating patterns or move something forward, this is a time when you're able to do so in long-lasting, significant ways. On the 9th, you have the power to move past your usual fears and outside your comfort zone in order to pursue your heart's desire.

From the 8th forward, you're in a strong position for dealing with financial matters, as well as problem areas that you might typically prefer to ignore. This becomes even stronger after the 16th. It's a generally good time for sorting out debts and taxes, as well as for seeking out a loan.

You have a stronger than usual ability to express yourself with confidence and creativity on the 13th, and this can lead to especially fruitful contact, heartwarming conversations, and new interests. Exchanges with others can be very passionate or intense, and yet maintain a light-hearted and playful quality. This can also be a time for moving a creative or communications project forward.

Peaking around the 22-23, you can become especially aware of any fears or insecurities that may be holding you back from exploring your full potential with communicating, learning, and connecting. There can be a question of where you stand or who (or what) to believe, as you become aware of a different perspective or an inconsistency or setback in a plan or project. Take the time to explore why you may be feeling unworthy or lacking, as resolving guilt or overcoming fear can help you grab the opportunities to expand your reach that Jupiter is offering you now and until September. The Full Moon on the 22nd opens your eyes to the need to express yourself more fully, and this can color many of your actions in the last week of February.

This Year: Cancer

2016 Yearly Horoscope Overview

Major themes in 2016 are learning, skill-building, work, health, and family and home life, dear Cancer. This may not be the most glamorous of years, but it's a time for getting your life into better order and laying important ground work.

With Jupiter in your solar third house until September and Saturn in your solar sixth house all year, you're going to be doing a lot of learning, skill-building, and detail work, and yes, this can get overwhelming at times. Uranus in your career sector can certainly keep things up in the air, and with all of these factors combined, there can be a real sense that you're not sure where you're headed. However, be assured that what you're building now will eventually pay off. You definitely need to find ways to alleviate stress and lighten the load, particularly in March and May when time management is top priority. What excites you may not always be what you need to do for the time being, but finding a better balance between your activities and responsibilities will set you on the right path, even if the end goal is not yet in focus. Even so, you're likely to get a nice hint of what that might be, or at least a light at the end of the tunnel can appear, in December, when Saturn and Uranus form an alliance. This influence will follow you into 2017 and develop further then, and you're likely to find that hard work seems to be paying off.

The need for more self-discipline with your health and wellness programs as well as daily routines will make itself obvious at times this year. Areas of excess need to be pared down with Saturn in Sagittarius and your sector of work, health, and habits. Even so, work may require more learning, skill-building, and connecting. Paperwork, appointments, small trips, and errand-running can be in big focus this year. It will be important to improve your reliability and your ability to maintain schedules. Health and fitness goals are very attainable this year - it's in fact an excellent time to shape up.

Relationships with siblings and classmates can thrive. For some, neighbors can play key roles in your life this year. You can be very productive with studies, teaching, and writing. You are building your communications skills and are becoming far more confident about expressing yourself, and for good reason.

Love relationships can be angsty at times in the first half of the year. For much of the first seven months of 2016, Mars is heating up your desires and romantic life, some of this time in retrograde motion. The month of June may be the trickiest, when there can be a change of heart and some backtracking in romance. There can be hemming and hawing, some reconsidering of recent decisions, and for some, an old relationship comes into strong focus. A new approach to going after who and what you want becomes attractive, or downright necessary. July will see these matters clearing up, when motivation returns and you begin to slowly but surely express yourself more directly and spontaneously in love.

Alternatively or in addition, you can be feeling a great hunger to express yourself through creative channels. This can be a time for picking up hobbies or bringing old ones back to life in new, wonderful ways.

The last quarter of the year finds you more involved with family and home life, and quite a bit of joy in so doing. Some of you could be moving into bigger and/or better, more suitable homes, and others can be strongly focused on improving the ones they have. Family relationships can improve considerably. This is also a time when major new beginnings occur, even if you are not yet seeing where you're going with them (2017 is better for this). Some of the recent pressures on your time subside and you find it easier to center yourself and attend to your personal and emotional needs.

This Year in Love: Cancer

2016 Love Horoscope for Cancer

Cancer love horoscope

For all Cancers, because Saturn is your partnership ruler, its movement in your solar chart and sign changes are significant in terms of what you are looking for in a relationship, as well as where you are more likely to find a partnership or where you may be focusing your energies in an existing partnership. From mid-September 2015 forward (until almost the end of 2017), we have a newer theme emerging. For one, you may be attracted to, or attracting, people who are Sagittarius-like, perhaps more freedom-oriented, philosophical, and adventurous. There can be less emphasis on more brooding, introspective types. You might also be working with a partner or meeting a partner through work or the fulfillment of your daily routine or health goals/issues.

Pluto in your partnership sector all year is nothing new for you - it's a long-term trend. This transit has the effect of ridding your life of superficialities in your close relationships, and slowly transforms your attitude towards committed relationship. You are learning about what partnering really means to you, and superficial or artificial interactions are no longer satisfying you, let alone carrying you.

Some of you could be dealing with obsessive behavior, either within yourself or coming from a partner, and fear of loss or betrayal. Lessons learned may not always be easy, but empowering in the end. This is especially true for those born July 4-9. Those Cancers born before these dates have already gone through the more acute elements of this influence, while Cancers born after these dates will experience this influence more directly in coming years. Your relationships may have distinct themes revolving around personal power, domination, jealousy, manipulation, or self-will. You are likely to be facing the deeper, and possibly darker, elements of your own personality through your close interactions with another. There can be power struggles and the facing of fears before eventual healing. For some, a relationship is taken to an entirely new level, and your life completely transforms as a result.

Another important theme during this period of your life is a trine between Jupiter and Pluto, which is active from October 2015 to June 2016. It...cont'd
