Forecast for Feb. 10-23

By Cortney Litwin / Special to The Malibu Times

Change is in the air as the sun, Mercury, Mars and Neptune in Aquarius continue to illuminate innovation, groundbreaking ideas and altruistic projects. First up is the Mercury-Saturn trine on the 14th, when visionary meets practical during discussions. Then multiple Neptune conjunctions from the 17th-20th energize philanthropic endeavors and artistic inspiration. Speaking of creativity, the full moon in Leo on the 18th shines a light on entertainment-related activities while intensifying romantic encounters. However, the Venus-Saturn square on the 18th can exacerbate commitment issues.

After the intellectualism of Aquarius, emotions take center stage as the sun, Mercury and Mars enter Pisces on the 18th, 21st and 22nd respectively. It’s time to get in touch with your inner life as well as your inner artist. Compassionate Pisces also favors activities that help the downtrodden, be it human, animal or environmental.

If you know your rising sign from your time of birth, read that too.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Insights about your past are the gift of the full moon, which can bring to light an issue that keeps you stuck. Partnership activities are the focus after the 18th, when Pisces influences energize (and challenge) a personal or business relationship.
