Astrology by Lisa Stardust

The week starts off with Saturn, who’s in Aquarius, squaring Uranus, who’s in Taurus. This is the first of three times these planets will connect in 2021. The other two are June 14th and December 24th. This transit has been associated with the fall of governments and economies in history (notably the Great Depression, Black Monday, and the fall of the Berlin Wall). From the ashes of the past, new structures will be built. The Sun enters Pisces on February 18th, lending intuition and mysticism to our lives. The First Quarter Moon in Gemini occurs on February 19th, motivating us to take action around our visions. Venus, who’s in Aquarius, squares off with Mars, who’s in Taurus, on the 19th. This fraught energy will heighten our passions and desires. Mercury ends its retrograde journey on February 20th that began on January 30th in Aquarius. We will be retracing the retrograde energy until March 13th (when Mercury leaves its post retrograde degrees). 




You're feeling a need to be surrounded by allies now. This is an ideal time to do protect your brood. Don’t let any negativity get in the way of your relationships. If anyone tries to throw you shade, align yourself with the energy of the collective to fight it off.



You will keep your mind busy with novel ideology this week. It feels great to make so many genuine intellectual connections. You'll find it easy to take advantage of the bubbling energy that’s building inside of you. Continue to share your natural grace and visions with those in your orb.



There's a push and pull happening for you in all areas of your life right now. You’re m being asked to take a look at how your career growth is affecting your home life (and vice versa). Embrace the changes in your life. Appreciate the shift in your mindset, too.



Lately, you’ve been giving a lot of thought to the future. So much so, that you’ve gotten lost in your thoughts and aren’t sure if the path you’re on is the right one. Don’t make any decisions right now. Take it slow and decide which path to cross next week.



As you will come to see this week, there is no real recipe for success. You have all of the ingredients that you need at your disposal. The only thing that you need to do is add your fiery drive and determination to the mixing bowl to attain professional enlightenment.



You are beginning to pay more attention to your finances and possessions. Don't be surprised if you feel a sudden urge to shop or unexpectedly find yourself in the position to make a big purchase. Shop around for the best prices before you make the splurge. Sales are your friend.



Have you been longing to learn a new subject? This week is a great time to take a class or acquire information on matters that interest you. Sign up for an online class to learn about a hobby or higher minded pursuit that you wish to excel in right now.



Your intuitive and absorbent watery nature is picking up on the energy and moods that surround you. Just know that you aren't the only one feeling it. The energy is going around. Don’t get consumed with everyone’s actions and behaviorisms. The only thing you can control is how you react.



Before you assert yourself with others, think about the sentiment which you want to express and articulate. It may be time to put your passionate and fiery nature aside in an effort to find a more docile approach when confronting your peers. Remember, you can attract more bees with honey.



Expect the unexpected to shift your plans this week. No matter which way the pendulum swings, you will be urged to do what’s right for you in the moment. Committing to not committing is the only way to make the cosmic energy work in your favor. Go with the flow.

You‘re marching (or shall we say swimming) to the beat of your own drum this week. Your imaginative mind is allowing you to envision a world that you never knew existed, one that will awaken your soul for the better. Let your true nature shine and embrace your radical sentiments.
