Horoscopes for Feb. 15, 2014

By
From page B5 | February 15, 2014 |

A conjunction of the sun and Mercury in Aquarius brings continuity to our intentions, words and actions. This is only as positive as what we really feel and what we mean to do. It’s an excellent time to check in with your deeper motivations and emotions. A journal is the best place to face your inner reality without pretense.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). When things are going well and the weather is fair, you will enjoy yourself, all the while cognizant that the mettle of mankind can’t be tested in temperate conditions. Heroes are made in the heat of the moment.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Can you entertain a thought that you don’t really believe? It doesn’t make you foolish; it makes you intellectually versatile, educated or possibly in love.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you felt like coming up with an excuse, it would take you no time to think of it. But such thinking could easily become a bad habit. Most people want to know why, but nobody wants to hear the excuse.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your need for attention is stronger than usual, and you may surprise yourself with what you’re willing to do to get it. Promises could fly out of your mouth if you’re not careful. When in doubt, hold back. Don’t agree to anything.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re not imagining things. Those who express their displeasure indirectly are still expressing their displeasure. This is dysfunctional, and you won’t be able to move forward until you get to the root of it.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Popular people can be powerful at times, but strictly speaking, popularity is not power. If you don’t have group support or approval for what you want to do, but it feels right to you, do it anyway. It’s likely to be your power move.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Give yourself a pat on the back for all that went right yesterday. Enjoy the sense of relief that comes. The hard part is over, and now you can relax into whatever the day brings.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Aim your ideas at people who seem like they have plenty of ideas of their own. An excitable, high-energy person is more likely to say “yes” than a cool, bored type of person.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don’t have to impress anyone. Be careful not to dangle a proverbial carrot on a stick in front of a person unless you really plan to give that person the carrot in the end.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are highly influential in the lives of others today, even though you probably will be unaware of what they take away from the experience of knowing you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You could get caught up in the spirit of competition. Channel it into work instead of relationships. Singles: There’s nothing to be gained from stealing a heart, so aim to win it fair and square.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some urge not to “sweat the small stuff,” and others insist that the little things are what make the difference between an ordinary and an extraordinary existence. Happiness depends on finding your own balance in this.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your habits improve this year, and your luck goes right along with the trend. Listen up, because in March your body will tell you what it needs for optimum health. A new regimen amps up your fitness and attractiveness, too. Social and financial success go hand-in-hand June through August. Gemini and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 17, 35, 9 and 40.

THE SCHOOL OF MERCURY RETROGRADE: As the Mercury retrograde continues through Aquarius, we will review what we’ve done to make the world a better place and rate ourselves according to the effectiveness of those actions. It is no more productive to feel guilty about what we didn’t do in the past than it is helpful to feel that past acts of philanthropy were enough and we can stop now. The world isn’t healed fully until it is – and maybe it never will be, but the Aquarian spirit is to keep moving forward in faith. As we each strive to do our part, the following questions may be helpful in structuring a plan for personal accountability.

– What can I do to reduce my carbon footprint? Bringing your own bags to the store and using your own water bottles is one easy answer. If you haven’t started anywhere, start there.

– What am I contributing to the global political climate? A spirit of tolerance? Friendliness toward outsiders and those different from yourself? You don’t have to be a traveling missionary to change the world.

– How can I leave each environment, and ultimately the world, better than it was when I came into it? Your answers to this question are the key to a good life.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: On this day in 1564, the father of science was born. Galileo Galilei invented a telescope to see into the heavens. His belief that the sun was at the center of our system caused him to live out his days under house arrest. In the year Galileo was born, the sun entered Pisces on the early side, and this great mathematician and physicist had four luminaries in the prescient sign of the fish.
