The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

What is your purpose in life? I don't just mean your role in society (like being an employee or a parent or a friend), or even your identity as an individual (what you like or don't like, your style of self-expression or your personal priorities). What do you see as your greatest achievement in your life? Again, I don't merely mean something like the goal making a million dollars, or even creating a magnificent work of art. At the end of your life, how will you leave the world a different place? Don't get hung up in passing moral judgments on it (leaving it a better or worse place), but think of how you have affected the world around you. And how are you a different person now than you were years ago? What used to be difficult for you that now is easier? What used to come more easily to you that now requires a greater effort? And what quality of being do you have now that has taken many years or great force to acquire?

This is a time when these kinds of soul searching questions could produce some deep, compelling and surprising answers! The range of your vision of what is possible might be radically expanded now, and boosted by a sudden or impulsive rush of energy to make it happen. This is not necessarily a good thing or bad thing, but could have elements of either or both. This could be as straightforward as doing something exciting with your circle of friends or associates. Or, it might be as complex as envisioning (or being thrust into) a new future that is radically different from what your life has been. If you react too impulsively or prematurely (which is a possibility under current transits), the result could be very different from what you're expecting.

The important thing to remember is to keep one foot in the practical world. As much as there are exciting or chaotic energies in the air, it is essential to maintain some form of "reality check" so that you can sense when you're drifting into the realm of fantasy, deception or wishful thinking. Find ways to pace your actions and reactions, to give yourself the time and flexibility to choose how to respond. It can be helpful to consult a trusted friend, advisor or support person who can help you get focused on what is really important to you. A personal astrology reading is also an excellent resource. (And there's still time to take advantage of the February Discount!)

FULL MOON in VIRGO

The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

For the next couple of weeks, you may find yourself torn between being responsible or being carefree, or between stability and spontaneity. Both ends of the measuring stick are valid and essential. However, it is important that you resist the urge to fall into one extreme while abandoning the other. This might require spiritual or emotional strength that you are still developing in yourself. It is an opportunity to build up your psychological muscles a bit, in order to hold both sides of a situation. Think of it like using both of your hands to hold opposite sides of a large, heavy box – if you let go of one side, the balance is lost and the whole box drops. In the same way, if you give in to one extreme or the other now, you'll probably find you can't just relax and rely on the other side to hold things up. You need both sides, both extremes, both perspectives, both alternatives.

As an example, say you're struggling with being disciplined about your work and you long to let it all go and be free of rules, deadlines, watching the clock and being told what to do. If you buckle down to your work and deny yourself any freedom, you could burn yourself out. If you say to heck with the job and give in to your impulses, you risk being seen as unreliable or even losing the job. The middle path is a better route, where you do what you need to do to satisfy the minimal demands of the job, and then make room in your schedule to let go and be free for a while.

This may also be an ideal time to re-evaluate your priorities where material needs are concerned. If you've been on a strict budget for a while, you might need to let loose just a little and treat yourself to something fun (but watch that those impulse purchases don't liberate you from more than you can realistically afford). Similarly, in your close relationships, you might feel the need to pull back from being quite so synchronized and be a bit more independent, or perhaps you feel the need to take the lead for a change. On the other hand, it might be the other person who wants more freedom. It's possible the relationship will work better in the long run if you relax your grip a little, or it might be a sign that there's a problem that needs to be dealt with. Either way, it's a good idea to ensure that there's room on both sides to say whatever needs to be said, to each make a free (unpressured) decision, and to respect and honour the autonomy and individuality of the other person—and of yourself! To get a more in-depth insight into how to navigate and negotiate in a relationship, it's best to get a personal reading.
