The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

Imagine you've just found a secret door. You jiggle the handle and with a little twist, it suddenly opens. You find yourself in a totally different world. You're free! Free from the intensity in your life, free from obligation, free from boredom and monotony. At first it's exciting! You can play, jump around, change your mind, explore, experiment, have fun with others or go off on your own. But after a while, you realize that something doesn't quite feel right. Nothing is permanent or enduring. Nothing is sacred. Anything and everything goes. Meaning is only found in the moment and changes in the next moment. Everything changes constantly, so there's no time to rest with the knowledge that whatever you left behind will be there to come back to later. There is little continuity between yesterday, today and tomorrow. Planning for tomorrow must be tentative at best.

This is a symbolic scenario, but the next four weeks will reveal a theme along these lines. On one hand, you might find yourself in a situation where it feels like you've managed to dodge a bullet or handcuffs or other situation that you expect would feel cramped, heavy or limiting. However, as the situation unfolds you may discover that you actually miss out on some valuable advantages that those limitations would have brought you, had you stayed the course. It's not that you did anything wrong – it's that by getting what you thought would solve your problem, you are now in a position to appreciate the benefits that come from the struggle you have been going through. That may be the whole point of fate tempting you off your path.

Look at it another way. You might be working hard to achieve control, empowerment and transformative change over your life. Intensely dedicated, you might even be a little obsessed, trying mightily to make something work. Then something happens that seems to pull you off course, disrupt your concentration and perhaps even make you question the wisdom or validity of your goal. What you might not realize at first is that often the best way to get "from here to there" is not to try to go in a straight line. It can often be better to zigzag around, becoming well-balanced between what you're trying to achieve and the peripheral, seemingly unrelated extra things that flesh out your achievements and keep you a whole person. It's also in the extra stuff that you can find inspiration, new perspective, fresh ideas, holistic awareness and mental breathing room that will ultimately support and contribute to your goals.

Lunar Forecast for the

FULL MOON in VIRGO

This Forecast in effect
February 25 to March 11, 2013

The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

This could be a rather stressful Full Moon, unfolding throughout the 2 weeks that follow it until the next New Moon (Mar.11). There's a lot of conflicting energy right now that can be stimulating and inspiring, or exhausting and discouraging, or both! Out of an abundance of ambiguity and longing rises an impulse to clarify whatever situation you find yourself in (e.g. work, health, service, learning a new skill, etc). This is likely to be an awkward quest, since much of what you are being driven by is rooted in fantasy, imagination, creativity and an indefinable longing to rise above your current situation and fulfill your potential. It's not that these make poor fuel for inspiration—it's that it's no easy or small task to take something intangible and elusive and focus it into something that's definite and manifest. So the first thing is to not be hard on yourself if this doesn't fall into place easily or quickly.

In response to this dilemma may be an urge to "up the ante." If analysis and methodical organization doesn't bring the formless into a workable form, then surely more scrutiny and meticulous dissection will finally force it to succeed. Right? Not necessarily, and trying may only amplify the problem. If things aren't working out, remember the saying: "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got." If it's not working, it's time to try a different approach. Reach for greater wisdom and understanding, rather than a more precise formula that (you hope) will guarantee success. Aim to develop more information, skills and confidence, instead of merely putting faith in a higher power that will magically make it all come together without you having do participate in the process.

There may be a temptation to lash out in frustration if/when things don't go your way—or worse, to beat yourself up if you feel you've fallen short of what you aimed for. Circumstances are a bit loosey-goosey right now to be entirely reliable, and may well change unexpectedly over the next few weeks, so it's probably not the best time to make irreversible final decisions about options or changes. If a decision can't wait, do your best to anticipate how things might become confused or fall apart, and try to keep decisions flexible. As an example, get money-back guarantees in writing. Listen to your intuition and your body – if it doesn't feel right or if it seems too good to be true, it very likely is. No matter how much you want it to be true, use your objectivity, analysis and fact-checking to see where it might not be what it seems. Enlist someone else's help, advice and feedback as a reality check. It's not a guarantee, but it can help guide you through this time. And give yourself lots of alone time where you don't have to think about stressful or important things—you can just relax, listen to music, go for a walk in the woods, meditate, or something else that will allow your mind to expand and get off the tightrope.
