Horoscope for February 17, 2017

Sunstar Banner

Tip of the Week: After a dramatic month in Aquarius beginning with the inauguration or Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States the Sun will enter Pisces on February 18 at 3:31 am PST. At the time of ingress the Moon will be in Scorpio where it experiences its highest range of emotions, so the dramatic tempo will continue. Mercury in Aquarius will contribute to an air of detachment, however, Uranus, Mars, and Venus forming a close conjunction in Aries will more than compensate with energy, excitement, and verve. As well, Pluto continues to be at the apex point of an opposition between Jupiter and Uranus which reveals a powerful process of regeneration and even transformation at governmental and other official levels. The New Moon in Pisces is on February 26th.


Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): You have probably been in dynamo mode this past month. Now you are invited to step back for a while, to catch-up on sleep, perhaps. This will become increasingly evident this week.  You do remain enthusiastic to enter new territory, especially in the relationship department, but are probably wise to take it slow.


Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20): Deciphering who your true friends are is an emerging theme. It has perhaps been less than evident over the past months. Your confidence levels may be up and down by destiny is calling you out to reveal what makes you special. Step away and then look back, if you must, then you will see your gifts more clearly.


Gemini (May 21-June 20): Opportunities to see a bigger picture have been present of late. Consequently, you are more aware and probably more animated and energetic, as well. Yet, you still feel a bit rebellious and punchy and others close by are probably on alert or at least are treading a little more softly in your zone.


Cancer (June 21-July 22): You have been passing through a rather deep cycle. At worst, it has manifested as something of a dark night. At best, you have purged and regenerated. Still, you may be in need of healing or a retreat. If you can get away to somewhere quiet, go! Otherwise, get creative and secure some sanctuary time.


Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Last week’s Lunar Eclipse in your sign likely activated or some important relationships. Or worst, they were irritated. Positively, you remain in an adventurous mood overall. Cultural interests and activities continue to gain your attention. Yet, the time has also come to take a plunge and the water may be cold.


Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22): Changes in your lifestyle have taken hold. One way or another, the time to make some key shifts and adjustments have required your time, energy and focus. Now it is time to focus on relationship fronts again. Some measure of healing may be required. This will become increasing evident over the coming few weeks.


Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22): Hopefully you capitalized on the high, social cycle that was active over the past few weeks. Now it is time to get back to work. This includes another round of inner work or healing. Generally, you are wise to be on top of your health these days and this month the invitation is more akin to a military trumpet.


Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Are you in the mood for some fun, play, romance perhaps? Well, if you are the timing looks good. Your passions are likely running high. The only issue is that they may run over. Some extra effort towards self-control may be required. Yet, with awareness, you can release the pressure, deliberately and playfully.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You have begun to see the world anew. Hopefully, what you are seeing and how is working for you. There are indications that opportunities to play and be adventurous are present. Yet, the deeper theme reveals an invitation to listen to your inner voice. If you cannot do this by yourself, ask for assistance.


Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your imagination is getting a fresh boost. Given that you are doing a good deal of inner work and what may be deemed renovations, the timing is good. Get in there and exercise your creative license. Clear the way increased flow and productivity you beautify your living space too.


Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Taking a fresh look at your priorities is an emerging theme. These may touch upon your financial concerns and interests. Taking realistic stock of things, on one hand, and working on clearing inner blocks, on the other, are featured. This may also be deemed a planning stage. Push through your own habitual perspectives.


Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): The Sun in your sign is beginning to inspire a whole new round of expressions. This will become increasingly evident especially after the next New Moon. Among your inspirations is your aspiration for more income, perhaps motivated by some measure of determination to break through to a whole new level.
