The Moon ends its transit of Capricorn at 1:00 AM EST,
when it enters Aquarius. A Sun-Mars square this morning can stir up
We have "spring fever" well before the season. Driven by a restless
desire to do something, without a well-defined goal we tend towards
impulsive actions and get ourselves into needless arguments. Our reactions
tend to be defensive or competitive. We are not very willing to compromise
or negotiate. We are more inclined to injury and accident under this
influence. Energy output can
run high if we choose to focus. Helping us along is a Venus-Mars sextile
that encourages cooperation. Our desire to harmonize, create something
wonderful, and connect creatively with others may help soften some of the rough
February is an easier, more flowing month than most, dear Libra, and for you, it's especially strong for family relationships, romantic and creative matters, and leisure time. Towards the end of the month, you'll feel quite driven to improve health and work.
Mars in your resources sector all month boosts your desire to live in more comfort and with a stronger feeling of security. The 13th is especially strong for taking action meant to improve your current circumstances. You more readily identify sources of waste or fear, and take steps to put them behind you. Volunteer work or some other behind the scenes activity can be especially rewarding. Benefits can come from hidden or unexpected places, or from resources you never knew you had. A great idea now might open the doorway to an increase in income down the road.
The 2-3 is strong for getting rid of the less-than-essential, as well as for any kind of streamlining activities that help you to clear your head. A financial strategy can emerge now and can be very useful to you, especially regarding home and family. You might decide to take a small risk that will lead to more security in the long run.
Romantic and creative matters are thriving with a New Moon in your solar fifth house on the 8th encouraging you to start fresh and go after what you want, and helpful aspects that further boost your appeal on the 8-9. You are feeling good from the inside out, and this attracts positive circumstances, and people, into your life. You might consider a creative launch from the 9-13. You get even more support for creative and romantic ventures from the 16th forward. Your ideas go over well,
and people seek you out for your advice and your company. Hobbies and leisure pursuits can be in strong, pleasant focus.
The 19th introduces a work and health theme. You'll be focusing on developing skills, improving your daily routines, and nixing bad habits now. This theme develops more fully in March, but you'll find yourself entertaining new ideas along these lines now.
Even so, shortly into this work-focused cycle, a Full Moon occurs (on the 22nd) to remind you to pay special attention to your needs for rest and spiritual nourishment. Around the same time, a Jupiter-Chiron opposition, which first occurred towards the end of 2015, comes exact. This is an important time for recognizing fears and insecurities that may be holding you back from getting the timeout you need or for dealing with mental health matters. Perhaps you're feeling guilty or unworthy if you're not meeting certain work or body-related goals, or you are under pressure to serve others. Do your best to acknowledge and address issues that are preventing you from seeking out the peace and quiet you need.
The 24-26 and then the 29th are wonderful days for innovative yet practical ideas. You could be feeling quite proud of a project, hobby, or talent, and can very effectively showcase it now. There may be an opportunity to combine fun and work. This is also a good time for clarifications in close relationships.
The year ahead continues to emphasize your emotional life, behind the scenes
activities, and detail work, dear Libra. In September, however, Jupiter moves
into your sign, kicking off a thirteen-month stay. This lucky transit occurs
only every twelve years, and it's a time for rediscovering your enthusiasm and
zest for life. Use the first eight months of the year well by exploring your
deeper needs, tying up loose ends, and working on boosting karma. This way, you
can bring a clean slate to your Jupiter-blessed year, ready to get the most out
If you feel indebted, work on coming to a better balance of give-and-take.
With Jupiter in your spiritual house until September: forgive, apologize, heal,
and help! Clear your conscience, resolve matters from the past, and get in touch
with what truly motivates you. From May 10th until September 9th, you're in a
good position to clear out the deadweight in your life, and to put an end to
projects, situations, and attitudes that no longer support your spiritual
growth. The Solar Eclipse on September 1st will give you the necessary push to
put difficult situations behind you.
You're in an especially good position to resolve problems with family from
March to June. An eclipse in March stimulates a need to attend to neglected
emotions. This is an important time when many of you will be coming to important
conclusions about partnerships and matters of independence. While you may
revisit decisions made then while Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29, you
are nevertheless listening to your heart.
Money matters can be tricky in the first half of the year, but there are
wonderful opportunities to sort out your income situation after some review.
Motivation to increase your own income is strong now. Many benefits can come
through working towards some level of financial independence this year. Despite
all of this, spiritual needs are the most pressing in 2016. Of course,
organizing your practical affairs can help ease your mind and calm your
Love matters can be on the heavy side in the first half of 2016. Many of you
will be doing some serious thinking about what you truly need from partnership.
You can also be a little withdrawn and rather loaded with work or personal
interests that keep you busy, often at the expense of your personal life. Strong
romantic feelings may emerge in August, and they can stir up all sorts of
desires that motivate you to make plans for a little more excitement in your
life. The last week of September through November find you more confident about
pursuing your desires and putting your plans into motion.
With Jupiter in your privacy sector much of the year and Saturn stimulating
more mindfulness with your communications all of 2016, you can be noticeably
more introverted and less sociable until the last quarter. Projects can take up
a lot of your time, and many of you will be working on important endeavors
behind the scenes. Be sure to get some fresh air from time to time, both
literally and figuratively.
This can be an important time for developing your skills and, for some,
formal training. You may be working on projects that require a lot of attention to
detail, or could be involved in demanding but satisfying learning endeavors. Students
are in a strong position for applying themselves and taking on responsibility this year, but there
can be times when they feel a little overwhelmed. Particularly in the last few
months of the year, you are gaining more credibility and may be considered an
authority in your field.
The last quarter of 2016 finds you coming out of your shell - not in all
ways, but in significant ways. You can find yourself in high demand - people
want to be around you, tend to extend you help or offers, and seek out your
advice. Your desire to move forward is powerful now - you want to start fresh
and enjoy brand new experiences now. It's an important time for personal
presence. Be sure to scope out opportunities to grow, improve, connect, and
learn, as they're likely to be enriching.
From February 20-March 16, both Venus and Mars are moving through your
partnership zone, and partnerships really begin to heat up. You have added
courage to make changes, to innovate, and to get things going, and some of you
may be in hot pursuit of exactly what you want in a relationship. You are
especially willing to take a few risks, with your heart especially. Attractions
and desires can come on suddenly and forcefully, and you won't accept anything
less than pure sparkle in your associations. It can be difficult to think of
much else. You can be especially impulsive, but by the 24-25, you're ready to
bring everything back down to earth. This is a strong time for coming up with a
solid plan with someone special.
Venus is in your partnership sector from February 20-March 16. This acts
to soften your disposition, helping to enhance a partnership or smooth over
differences in same, and it may bring helpful, warm, and loving people into your
experience. Even so, Mars is in the same sector during this transit, adding
desire, impulsiveness, and fire to the equation.
Mars is in your partnership sector from February 19-March 31, 2015. There can
be some fireworks in your partnerships now. You can be more ardent in your
pursuit of a person or a relationship, or someone could be ardently pursuing
