Blessed be! the witch inside,
Look into your minds eye.
Friend of nature, elements and animals.
Down to earth they truly see,
the evil of the tricksters and wannabes.
Should not be punished for their craft,
There is beauty in a witches sacred art.
Witches change with the seasons,
They breath the air of liberation.
Witch is child of light and shadow,
Natures spirit flows within.
A witches roots run deep, their will is strong,
They will stand up for what is right.
Searching and finding, needing and minding,
Wondering when the quest will end.
A witch cannot hide who they are, a pagan child.
All who follow the faith must heed the call.

Meaning: The first meaning of this rune is quite obvious: it represents women. Any woman that is important in the question, whether you know her or not, will be represented by this rune. Mother, sister, aunt, grandma, a female boss, friend, lover or even enemy… all can be symbolized by the appearance of this rune.
In a more general sense, this rune is related to traditional female abilities and characteristics, such as giving birth, nurturing, comforting and healing. When this rune appears, you can count on the sympathy of others towards you or your situation. In its most negative aspects, the Woman rune can show over-protectiveness, a patronizing attitude or co-dependency. It often strives to maintain the status quo, refusing to change even if the situation is bad.
The Woman rune is connected to nurturing – nurturing a relationship, a person or a project. Like the Moon rune, it can be related to finding a safe place to rest and heal, but while the Moon implies a solitary retreat, the Woman often shows that you need to go back to the people you trust, the people you feel safe with.
Healing is another strong aspect of this symbol, as well as teaching. You can be both the patient/student or the healer/teacher when this rune appears. This rune is also connected to creativity, but in a way that is different from the Romance rune. While the latter is about the conception of a project – the initial stages of creation – the Woman is about the birth of this project. When your creation is brought out into the world, fully manifested.
In relationship readings, this rune isn’t bad, but rather weak. While it can indicate subtle ties between people, these are usually so, so subtle that the partners can easily drift away from each other. It can show that one of the partners sees the other as someone who needs to be protected and healed, rather than an equal. Usually, the romance is a bit stagnated when this rune appears, or very close to becoming a friendship.
The powerful Owl easily makes its way through the darkest night on muted wings. Often it is only their haunting call echoing across the land that lets us know The Owl is near. Because of its amazing night vision, many cultures have attributed wisdom and the ability to uncover even the deepest secrets to the enigmatic, noble Owl. The Owl’s nocturnal prowess has lead many to see them as a messenger between the material and spirit worlds. Cultures as distinct as the African Zulus and ancient Celtics have ascribed magical powers to The Owl made them a revered companion to shaman and wizards.
As a daily card, The Owl marks a moment when wise decisions and actions must be made based upon information known to only a few, or possibly only you. It marks a time when your vision is likely to be clearer, more acute than of those around you. Spiritual revelations may be made. Secrets may be revealed that demand decisive action.
The Hierophant represents the protector of a culture’s heritage and traditions. His purpose is to defend and teach the established ways and beliefs a group embraces. He is inherently conventional and a true believer in the power of the group. He loves the structure of the group and its values. It is the task of The Hierophant to bring new members into the group—to prepare the uninitiated to take their rightful place in his culture. In this sense he is very much like a teacher or a priest. He also acts as the repository of his group’s history. The Hierophant is certainly not one to buck proper authority. However, he is staunch and worthy defender of the tried and true. He represents the positive aspects of tradition and conformity.
Often called “The Test,” the Eight of this suit usually pictures a warrior running the gauntlet, subjected to harsh examination, who finds out just how tough he or she is (or isn’t) in the process. Life provides us with plenty of experiences that put us in situations of close scrutiny — whether it’s an entrance exam, a decisive job interview or even the tough conversations that follow upon a breach of trust in a close relationship.
Sometimes the challenge or obstacle course has nothing to do with other people, as when an inventor has to face the question “Does it really work?” or when the aspirant has to decide how badly he desires to go through some sort of initiation. This card shows what happens to that great idea in real time, where the rubber meets the road. The Test represents your chance to vindicate the time and energy spent in getting ready for a big moment. In most cases, you will either pass or fail, with little in the way of available middle ground.
A Solar Eclipse occurring today places a strong focus on making contacts and reaching out to others, dear Aries, in both a social and professional sense, over the coming weeks and even months. Events and circumstances are such that they serve to clear the path for new beginnings, particularly related to how you fit in with friends and the community. You become more acutely aware of your position in life within the context of the group, rather than through self-centered focus. Goals that involve networking, making connections with others, joining or strengthening ties in a group project or activity, and nurturing goodwill are the focus during this cycle that begins today. Some level of drama may be present now, as it serves to shake up your social life in order to pave the way for important changes. In some cases, friends enter or leave your life during this period. This is a good time to reflect on how you’d like to steer your life in the coming weeks, particularly in terms of your “place” in the social side of your life. This period favors formulating goals that have to do with future, long-term happiness and those that give you a stronger sense of mission or purpose, aligning yourself with important causes. Occurring today and connected with eclipse energy are two supportive aspects. You can experience an increased love of order, organization, and clarity, and you could find it’s a fine time to take care of business and connect with others in practical ways. You may be attending to a responsibility towards an important person in your life and finding it quite easy and even pleasurable to make a personal sacrifice in order to help someone out. Today and the weeks ahead favor steady progress and efforts to secure future endeavors. Your judgment on a business level is in great form now.
The Solar Eclipse occurring today brings heightened awareness and sensitivity to your standing in society and your professional goals, dear Taurus, as it happens in the professional or public sector of your solar chart. There can be feelings of excitement or uneasiness, depending on how you handle change, surrounding career, reputation, and life path matters now. Going forward, it will be a good time for developing new business plans and goals. A sense of renewal and reinvigoration regarding your career goals is on the horizon. Changes in work, focus, life direction, bosses, authority figures, reputation, or your own authority and influence can occur now and in the coming few months. It’s a time to focus on the elements of your personality that you are projecting in your career or to society, with an eye on improvement. Significant shifts in how others see you can occur now. You are more actively aware of the need to bring added structure or rules into your life, or you might decide you need to improve your performance and general practices so that you can better follow certain rules. This is a phase in which you are exceptionally busy with career or public responsibilities. However, it’s also a time for balancing home and career. Drama or commotion stirred now paves the way for new approaches and new beginnings. A fresh approach is encouraged now, but it’s important to be very mindful of what worked for you in the past. Today is strong for productivity. You have not only the necessary energy, but the foresight and patience, to make significant headway in your projects, work, or ventures. Relationships with friends can settle down, and you may feel that others are more reliable than they have been lately. Your vision is practical, and you are primarily concerned with what has the most long-term value.
A Solar Eclipse occurring today falls in the sector of your solar chart that rules your spirit to grow, explore, and expand beyond the “regular” experiences in your life, dear Gemini. This can bring invigorating events into your life that serve to nudge you out of your usual routine. You are making a break from the past in some manner, which will help clear the path for future growth and development. There may be opportunities to broaden your horizons through travel, education, life experience, or adventure. There can be emerging opportunities to publish or promote your work, share your ideas, and enjoy mind-expanding experiences. Meeting important people through these endeavors is possible. Transportation issues can also be in focus, with new avenues opening up for getting out and about. This eclipse might also bring some of you into contact with lawyers, professors, or publicists. It’s a good time for exploring the world, or new perspectives, with friends. Also today and imprinted into the energies of the eclipse is a Venus-Saturn connection that favors the discussion of practical matters and future plans. Your judgment of worthwhile projects or investments is sound. This can be a time to look for help or support if you need it. It can be a good period for handling or managing tricky financial or relationship matters and taking care of business.
With a Solar Eclipse bringing powerful energy to your intimacy sector today, this is a period of empowerment and discovery, dear Cancer. This is a time for working on yourself from the inside out, for addressing dependencies and issues of support, and for improving an intimate relationship. If you’ve been too dependent on others, or the opposite, too proud to ask for help, then you’ll see and feel it acutely at this time, and you’ll want to make changes. The period ahead is outstanding for focusing on issues of intimacy and sharing, as well as for developing self-mastery skills. Goals to reduce debt, to get support, to quit a bad habit, and to understand your psychological workings better are favored now. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a relationship or a financial arrangement, then this is a time for coming to terms with the dependency. It can also be a time when you’re wanting/asking for more depth from a project, relationship, or endeavor. Use this eclipse’s positive blast of energy to sort out financial support issues or emotional entanglements as you go forward. If you’ve been going it alone, this can also be an essential cycle for reaching out and finding the support you need. On the other side of the coin, if dependencies have become burdensome or are limiting your growth, now is a great time to work on putting them behind you. Taking small, progressive steps makes the most sense. Today’s Venus-Saturn aspect occurs at the same time as the eclipse, acting as an imprint and effectively extending its influence for weeks and even months ahead. While there may be some reserve in your relationships and connections, there can be an excellent feeling of constancy. Attention to strengthening projects and relationships can have long-term benefits. It’s a good time for dedicating yourself to a project or activity that requires your full attention.
With a Solar Eclipse bringing powerful energy to your partnership sector, dear Leo, you’re in a strong position for new beginnings regarding your close relationships. Negotiations and one-to-one relationships are highlighted now and in the coming weeks. It can be a time for beginning new relationships or re-defining existing ones in significant ways. A stronger awareness of the role someone plays in your life or the need for support and companionship may be in focus now. This is a sound period for making contacts and for making something public. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a problematic relationship, then circumstances now might push the matter. When a Solar Eclipse happens, we are still symbolically in the dark, so that today and the next few are suitable for paying attention to news coming in and feelings emerging, but taking new action should wait at least a few days. A Venus-Saturn aspect occurring right now imprints its energies on the eclipse and is thus longer-lasting than usual. It’s a good time for realistic assessments related to work, financial, and health matters. You have the ability to take a look at what needs to be improved or changed and to make adjustments with few if any regrets. Meeting responsibilities feels satisfying. Old wisdom, or simply good advice from someone you trust, can be applied with success now. It’s also a beautiful time for making relationship “repairs” in simple but effective ways.
The Solar Eclipse occurring today prompts a refresh or new chapter in your life related to work, health, habits, and routines, dear Virgo. It heralds a period when new diet regimes, healthy routines, and satisfying work schedules can be successfully initiated, and current ones improved or revamped. You’re in a strong position to take care of business, handle details, and increase your efficiency. Circumstances around you can force these matters or simply motivate and prompt you to want to make big changes. It’s a good time to recognize and honor your limits regarding how much you can give and do. It’s time to structure your life. This period is marked by a desire to sort things out and to be useful. Over the coming weeks, it’s time to take charge of your health, self-care initiatives, and work. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a difficult work situation or job, then this is a time for letting go. Today is good for making solid progress on a pet project, for help and support between friends, and for making realistic judgments of quality and worth. The weeks ahead can be good for purchases, plans, and designs. You are interested in the practical elements of a creative project and could be considering how to monetize (or better monetize) a hobby or talent. You meet your obligations gracefully and good feedback from others motivates you further. You’re showing your affection in practical ways and appreciate people who are steady and reliable.
Today’s Solar Eclipse occurs in your sector of romance, creative self-expression, recreation, children, and hobbies, dear Libra. Events happening now and in the coming weeks set you up for new beginnings in one or more of these areas of life. Romantic inclinations are highlighted, as are any kind of celebratory, playful, and just-for-fun endeavors. You will be especially aware of your need for approval and feedback from others during this period, deriving pleasure from the ways your creativity impact the world around you. This can be a passionate time for you and a time when you might feel bolder about sharing yourself or your creations than usual. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to people or projects that have been keeping you from expressing your true self, this is a time for making necessary changes. You are likely to attract positive attention from others, especially romantically or creatively speaking. You may be starting a new hobby or stepping up a current one. You are making big decisions about recreation, hobbies, love, and children now and in the coming months. Today, a Venus-Saturn sextile supports practical improvements around the home, in the family dynamic, in your work, or with your health. You might pick up a new skill or make progress on a home or work project. You see the value of traditions and routine more than usual, but you’re also open to new ideas — a perfect combination!
The Solar Eclipse that occurs today clears the way for new beginnings, dear Scorpio, as you make way for new beginnings. It’s time to assess what may have been holding you back from thriving, mainly related to your career and home life. The coming weeks are powerful for taking charge of your home life, attention to matters of security and safety, connecting with family and your own emotions. This eclipse can serve as a cosmic nudge to find your roots, learn your worth, build your sense of security, and focus on building your support system or base of operations. The coming weeks are ideal for making long-range plans for the future, for any type of re-organizing or even re-modeling of the home or home environment, and for family-related activities. There can be the need or desire to put your personal life first now, and changes may be afoot. You’re in an excellent position to start fresh and take charge. Improvements on the home front can be notable now, particularly with better daily routines and improved health. This can sometimes conflict with your personal plans and sense of independence, but making things right in your private world can have positive effects across the board and deserves your strong attention now. Today’s Venus-Saturn sextile is conservative but supportive. Constructive and possibly instructive conversations can be had with or about children, lovers, or creative projects with your communications sector linking up positively with your sector of romance, fun, children, and artistic expression. Alternatively, you may be attending to practical details that help improve or secure relationships and projects along these lines. Getting on track now and in the coming weeks can do wonders for your mood.
The Solar Eclipse that occurs today launches a favorable cycle in which to turn over a new leaf with your studies, communications, and connections, dear Sagittarius. It’s a great time to learn something new, make contacts, and use the power of communications to move your goals forward. In the coming weeks and even months, you are likely to find new opportunities for learning and communicating or avenues for self-expression. In some cases, this is about transportation and could be prompted by an event that forces the issue. Developing mental rapport with others, sharing ideas, and reaching out or pouring energies into your interests and studies can be in current focus and favorable. There may be new ways of getting around or connecting that open doors for you. The weeks ahead are excellent for taking care of daily tasks with increased and renewed energy, although you could experience an initial feeling of being overwhelmed since eclipses can wipe us out before restoring energy. News can come that steers you in a new direction. You might suddenly want to take a course or begin a new project. Also today, a Venus-Saturn connection favors a slower, steadier, and simpler approach to life, particularly on financial levels.
The Solar Eclipse occurring today happens in your resources sector, dear Capricorn, and you may be making important decisions in the coming weeks related to personal finances, business, and practical affairs. On an emotional level, this is a time for establishing yourself and discovering and developing your natural talents and personal resources. Your financial status, income, or arrangements related to security and comfort are subject to new beginnings or improvements and changes. Setting realistic money goals, as well as formulating such things as budgets and other sensible financial planning projects, are especially favored during this time. You might also be discovering ways to increase your income or your earning potential. It’s a beautiful time for earthy, tactile, and comforting activities that help you to feel more grounded and connected. If you’ve been holding on too tightly to a lifestyle or financial habits that haven’t been serving you well, this is a time when changes become necessary. New beginnings are in order! This eclipse gives you a fantastic push towards taking better care of your money and resources. It’s undoubtedly a robust period for resolving problems with income, spending, and saving. Today’s Venus-Saturn connection is excellent for your frame of mind. Filling responsibilities or putting in some hard work can be satisfying. Friends, siblings, neighbors, or classmates can come through for you.
The Solar Eclipse occurring today is in your sign, dear Aquarius, and it helps pave the way towards significant personal changes in the coming weeks and even months. This is a time for reinventing yourself in some personal way, such as with a new look or manner of expressing and presenting yourself. Think about how you present yourself to others, focus on changing personal habits in such a way as to improve your confidence, and concentrate on putting your best foot forward, as this is a time when you will get noticed and make a powerful impression on others. Circumstances can prompt a rethinking of your general attitude towards new beginnings, bravery, your role as a leader, your independence, and the ways you instinctively defend yourself. This is a time when you can be braver and enjoy new experiences. There can be a tendency to dig in your heels and display your independence now, which may be necessary for personal growth, but care should be taken to stay true to yourself in the process. Get in touch with what you genuinely want, envision it, and go for it, but wait for the dust to settle before going all in. Keep in mind that you can feel a little wiped out around the time of the eclipse before energy rebuilds. This is a critical time for personal goals, revisions, new beginnings, and makeovers (physical and otherwise). A Venus-Saturn aspect occurring today also ties into the energies of the eclipse. Fortunately, it’s a strengthening aspect that favors taking care of duties and responsibilities. In fact, you may take pleasure in so doing. Getting your financial affairs in order can have a positive impact across the board.
The Solar Eclipse that occurs today launches a period of review, letting go, and recharging your spiritual or emotional batteries, dear Pisces. This is a time for releasing, purging, and healing. This eclipse encourages you to put certain outdated ventures or situations behind you. It may be a time of withdrawal and retreat in a social sense, of soul-searching, and the seeking out of emotional peace of mind. You’re due for extra time to yourself, or with yourself! If you’ve been neglecting your psychic, spiritual, or emotional needs, then circumstances can push you to pay attention to your inner world now. There can be flooding of energies now which can be a little disorienting, but going forward, you’ll get a stronger sense of what changes need to be made. If you require solitude, then you’ll find ways to get it. If there have been toxic connections to your past, then you’ll be figuring out how to break ties. Occurring today and tied into the energies of the eclipse is a Venus-Saturn aspect that finds you radiating appealing, quiet magnetism, even if you are keeping your emotional distance. Clarity and a sense of purpose are driving forces now. Advice can be useful, whether you’re giving or receiving it. Bonds with others can be strengthened through gestures, actions, and practical support.
If You Were Born Today, February 14
Youthful no matter your age, you are spirited and playful, yet you are no stranger to hard work. Your ideas are unique and well ahead of your time. You are a natural born entrepreneur with seemingly unlimited ideas for not only making money but also for unique products and services. Many of you have a strong interest in history. Given to some worry, this does help you to meet your responsibilities and commitments, but keeping a fresh perspective is something you need to work on in order to avoid pessimism or nervousness. Famous people born today: Florence Henderson, Jack Benny, Gregory Hines, Meg Tilly.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
The period ahead is a particularly busy one. At times, you may feel like the pace of your life is running ahead of you. You can be especially productive, however, in all types of communications–writing, speaking, learning, teaching, and so forth. You are willing to put in the effort for a mental interest or project, and you can feel pleasantly dedicated to your work or ideas in the year ahead. You are more able to focus on what you’re doing and communicating, and you’re more inclined to notice and consider details.
The Moon is in its Balsamic phase in your Solar Return chart, marking this year the end of an important cycle, or stage of growth, in your life. You take more down time than usual, and this is natural, even good for you. This is a year when you are likely closing important projects or “chapters” in your life. This is an important year for reorienting yourself – discovering what you want, and identifying what you need to do in order to move forward more positively.
With Venus sextile Saturn in your Solar Return chart, certain elements of your social life and financial life are stabilized, secured, and more reliable this year. You may solidify a romantic relationship under this influence, or become involved with a mature partner. Circumstances may be such that you need to handle money more carefully this year, or this may simply come naturally to you now. Support from older people or authority figures may come by way of solid advice or more tangible help. Renewed ties to old friends are possible, or a new sense of responsibility in existing friendships, are also highly likely.
This is a time when you feel confident and supported enough to pursue your desires. It’s a good period for making yourself feel more secure and safe, as well as for family or domestic activities. This is also a period when you more readily support or defend others.
You are seeking out equal, fair, and balanced relationships. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing, creating harmony, and sharing power now. You may gain an advantage in business or finances or by promoting harmony and beauty.
Your feelings are more intense which can increase your creativity or animate your social or romantic life this year.
You may be actively involved in teamwork and collaboration with others this year. Your passions are stirred and you’re likely to make positive connections with others. There can be the beginning of a significant new relationship or the intensification of an existing bond.
This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.
You have a stronger ability to direct your energies into meaningful activities. In some ways, you can be quite self-contained as you pursue passion projects. However, you may need to watch for hooking onto impractical ventures. As well, your energy level can vary greatly from one period to the next, so take advantage of the “high” periods in order to offset the possible loss in productivity during the low-energy stages. At times you may feel a little lacking in direction, but give yourself some time to find it.
This can be an especially creative, tuned-in year for self-expression, not only verbally but through hobbies, games, or sports. It’s bound to be a busy time for you, sometimes lacking in clear direction, but also good for optimism and many new ideas and interests.
2018 is a Number Nine year for you. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition. It is a time when we need to let go of things that no longer serve their purpose, and hold on to things that have a future. It is a time of cleaning out dead wood, not necessarily for new beginnings. It can be a time when a burden has been taken off your shoulders, and it can be a year of giving of yourself. Advice – let go of things that are holding you back, give of yourself and express your sympathetic, compassionate side.
2019 will be a Number One year for you. Ruled by the Sun. This is a year of action. The seeds you plant now, you will reap later. Others might find you less sociable, as you are busier than ever and you focus on your activities and your needs. Still, you are outgoing and your initiative is stronger than ever. Advice – Stand alone, take action, start fresh, express independence.
Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, February 14th
This is an active time for bringing a sense of harmony and peace to a friendship, or for being a mediator with others, dear Aries. You are taking more pride than usual in your ability to relate well to people and to bring others together. Emotional matters can be on the tricky side, though. Money or relationship worries can surface later today. Your mind tends to move towards the darker elements of your life, and this can stimulate mental circling and spiraling, which is destructive rather than creative. Confront your fears rather than allow them to take over. Fortunately, a Mercury-Uranus aspect helps you reason things out and move on. A helpful conversation, invitation, or piece of news may be part of the picture now with these planets forming a pleasant alliance. Friends and networks can be the source of inspiration, or you might inspire others. Tomorrow is a Solar Eclipse, and today is good for winding down.
Tomorrow is a Solar Eclipse, dear Taurus, making today an important time for winding down. However, this doesn’t mean the day has to be boring. It’s, in fact, a healthy day for relationships with bosses, parents, or work superiors, and for bringing harmony to your place of work. These things can be keys to success now and in coming weeks. You may be receiving special attention for your efforts, work, or accomplishments, and could be in the position to guide others in the weeks and even months ahead. Now is a good time to think about what you want to strive towards. You are giving off a protective, supportive vibe that draws others to you. Even so, later today there can be brooding energy, but it may be best to lift yourself above petty disagreements. A Mercury-Uranus influence coming into play now can help tremendously on this front as it allows for some detachment. It’s an excellent time to become better informed, and for seeking out new or unique approaches to career, public relations, or life path matters.
You can be in the position to help and support others through your ideas or personal philosophies today, dear Gemini. This is a robust time for connecting with people through the mind, communications, learning, and ideas, as well as for empowering yourself through your studies. Relationships can improve today by giving others their space or encouraging their independence. Later today, however, there can be a tendency to nurse resentments. Do your best to rise above game playing. If you need to clear the air, do so, and keep in mind that we can be somewhat sensitive and reactive right now. Fortunately, we’re moving towards a Mercury-Uranus aspect that helps you see many possibilities. It also aids others to detach just enough to gain some perspective. This is a good time for entertaining new ideas, but not for starting something new since a Solar Eclipse will occur tomorrow and is likely to redirect your energies or focus. Networking can lead to useful and pleasant discoveries.
You’re taking pride in being fair and non-judgmental with money, sharing power, and in close relationships right now, dear Cancer, and others appreciate you for these qualities. Later today, however, there can be difficulties coming to a place of agreement or understanding. Arguments can stem from people expecting one another to read their minds or to intuit what it is they need and want. This can be a time of asking yourself what you or another fear, and taking it from there, as a Venus-Pluto aspect today suggests that tense or controlling behavior comes from fears of loss or of being out of the loop. Fortunately, we’re tapping into good energy for solving problems and talking things through with objectivity. In fact, you can be very rational about tricky or sensitive topics right now. Business and career matters might improve with new methods or approaches. A surprise advance or development with a relationship or financial issue can be pleasant now.
As the Sun and Juno come together in your partnership sector today, you can be taking particular pride in your close relationships or your ability to treat others fairly, dear Leo. You may also be feeling more empowered through a close relationship. There is a satisfying sense that the effort you put into creating balance and harmony in your life now will reward you for some time to come. You are also a little more sensitive than usual to any feeling of inequality in your relationships, and efforts to bring things back into balance may involve the very kind of conflict you set out to avoid! Even so, the process can be rewarding. Buried resentments can emerge later today, possibly in a disruptive way, but you have all the tools to talk things through and learn from the experience. This is an excellent time for consulting others, increasing your understanding of a special person in your life, and coming up with bold new ideas. Interactions with people close to you can be energizing now and in weeks to come as the energies today are imprinted on tomorrow’s Solar Eclipse, which will affect you for months into the future. Conversations are refreshingly open, honest, and revealing. When tension emerges, use the power of candid communications to rise above it all or figure out what it all means.
Bringing balance and harmony to your daily routines and your work environment is important to you, dear Virgo, especially at this time of year. You’re in an excellent position for doing so now, and you can feel empowered through your efforts. Cooperation and support are in sharp focus now. While social elements can affect productivity now, your efforts are nevertheless meaningful and contributing to long-term happiness. As the day advances, on the one hand, there is some possible tension related to sensitive feelings. We may be a little possessive or jealous if we’re afraid of rejection or betrayal, and people in your life may seem to need more reassurance than usual. On the other hand, a Mercury-Uranus aspect sets the perfect environment for talking through problems. You may even reach an intellectual or communication breakthrough. With Mercury in your work and health sector, new insights or discoveries tend to center around health, employment, habits, and routine matters. You might discover new methods for improving your health or making your daily affairs easier or more efficient. There can be test results that you were waiting for coming in or new light shed on an old problem.
You’re in a unique position for reaching an agreement with a lover, friend, or child today, dear Libra, as the Sun and Juno come together in your solar fifth house. You are big on fair play, in general, and you can be a particularly useful mediator or facilitator today. Creative efforts can also thrive as you’re feeling pleasantly competitive and motivated. As the day advances, a Venus-Pluto tense aspect comes into play, however, there is a strong tendency to feel more vulnerable and to make attempts to protect your feelings. In fact, these efforts may take you further from the problem than is healthy. Try not to allow this to control your mood or interfere with your relationships. Fortunately, a Mercury-Uranus connection in your relationship sectors puts you in a beautiful position for coming to a mutual understanding or for enjoying stimulating conversations with someone you care about. With this added layer of objectivity and a sincere desire to grow and improve, you can talk through most any problems.
With the Sun and Juno’s alignment in your home and family sector today, dear Scorpio, you can be determined to make peace with family or bring a feeling of harmony and balance in your home environment now. You are a little more sensitive to imbalances, but fortunately want to take action to correct problem areas. As the day advances, however, it may be all too easy to push an issue too far as Venus connects with Pluto in a minor but irritating way. If you’ve been holding on to resentment, it might surface now, perhaps unexpectedly. A Mercury-Uranus aspect, however, helps you to detach, let go, and talk through your issues. This is a time for reasoning things out. Your thinking is forward-looking and growth-focused, and you can approach domestic work, health, and routine matters in new ways. Through honest conversations and thoughts, you can get to a place of far greater understanding of your feelings about core issues.
With the Sun and Juno joining forces in your solar third house today, dear Sagittarius, you are a powerful force when it comes to speaking, sharing, connecting, learning, and teaching. You are a natural at networking and might find yourself in the position of mediator or guide today. Even so, a Venus-Pluto aspect can heighten worries about security or finances, which may very well lead to some tensions in your relationships. A Mercury-Uranus harmony keeps your mind open to possibilities and ideas and helps you focus on what can be done to let go and move on. People are attracted to your unique perspective and convictions today and tomorrow. Worry, concern, or frustration can lead to inventive solutions.
You’re in a great position today for balancing and organizing your work or finances, dear Capricorn. Cooperating, negotiating, and solving problems are in focus and positive. You can enjoy taking special care of others or offering some guidance. Staying on top of your money, things, and business can feel empowering now. As the day advances, a Venus-Pluto minor challenge can stir up resentments or fears related to missing out or interpersonal problems. Frustrations emerging now tend to have a deeper root than what appears the case on the surface of things. Fortunately, we’re also closing in on a sextile between Mercury and Uranus, and conversations can be wonderfully useful for gaining perspective. Thinking and musing can lead to creative places. Progressive ideas about how to make yourself feel more secure and comfortable can emerge today and this week.
Your ability to mediate, negotiate, and treat others reasonably is in marked focus today, dear Aquarius, and is appreciated by the people around you. This is due to a Sun-Juno conjunction in your sign. Your personality is shining for your ability to create harmony, and you can be especially charming and appealing today. You feel proud and stronger for expressing yourself. As the day advances, a Venus-Pluto minor challenge points to possible worries about money or resources, and may even stir up issues of self-worth. While this may be a recurring issue that’s emerging and it deserves some attention, you may decide to focus on moving forward as your ruler, Uranus, forms a sextile to Mercury in your sign, leaving you in a particularly strong position to get your message across effectively. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works supremely well for you. The chance to enjoy conversations with the things that genuinely interest you can emerge. Even so, take things easy, as tomorrow brings a Solar Eclipse in your sign, as well as the chance for new beginnings.
There is a strong focus on the past or your private life these days, dear Pisces, and today is no exception. You can be very busy sorting through past experiences seeking a point of resolution or closure as the Sun and Juno come together in your privacy sector. You are especially sensitive to imbalances, and you want to set things right. However, later today there can be vague concerns and worries that tend to hang heavily in the air, and some of you could be concerned about a relationship or friendship. Try not to overthink things, as is the tendency now. A Mercury-Uranus influence is also in place, and while it doesn’t cancel out the tension, it helps us talk through or reason out problems. Your mind tunes into progressive ideas and possible areas for improvement. Open-mindedness brings wonderful rewards.
