Horoscopes for Feb. 16, 2014

By
From page D4 | February 16, 2014 |

Mercury poses a harmonious trine to Mars during these last days of the Aquarius solar transit. Our minds have been caught up in the future: what it will look like, how it will work and what it will mean for humanity. Now we bring attention back to the emotions stirring inside. Take care of you – there’s only one of you in the whole world.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). It will take extra time and effort to put yourself in an excellent mood, but do it anyway, because when you feel good, comfortable and fun, you give out that kind of energy.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Be very careful with other people’s “sacred cows” in whatever form they may take today. You likely will not know the deep meaning another person associates with a symbol, but you can respect that there is one.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your bright mind needs a challenging outlet today – one that’s different from what you dealt with yesterday. Your exciting afternoon will make tonight’s sleep more restful.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Every minute you spend on feeling physically better through exercise, stretching, nutrition and even sleep will be multiplied times 10 and returned to you at a later date.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you can help someone you love be selfish, do it. Your gesture will be especially effective and fondly remembered if the loved one in question is usually a giver, but just needs a break these days.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What you see, hear and touch can’t make you happy unless you follow it up with a self-generated happy thought. It’s your happy responses that keep the good feelings flowing in your world.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s no need to chase people down, call them up or make them an offer. Operate on an attraction-only basis. What you do to attract people to your world will work beautifully.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Even though you enjoy the journey you’re on, you’re in the game to get results. If you don’t get them quickly, you’re ready to bail and try a new approach.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Enjoy the cosmic gift of the day: charisma to spare. You’re not looking for special attention, and yet when you enter the room, people will take notice and be curious about who you are.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It’s an odd quirk of human behavior that people like those they help more than those who help them. To pull someone closer to you, ask for a small favor.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You prefer a relaxed setting, but when that isn’t under your control, the next best thing is to create a bubble of relaxation around you so that when people get close to you, they feel safe.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Any effort you make in the name of privacy will be classy, indeed. Also, sharing one thing with an individual will be more soul-satisfying than broadcasting everything to everyone.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. In the next six weeks, you will leave the security of known things to explore. Respect, adoration and money are coming your way. You’ll sort out difficult logistics in April and get into a fantastically productive groove in May. June is for following your intuition toward love and fun social opportunities. Pisces and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 10, 40, 19 and 13.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: The solar shift from intellectual Aquarius to touchy-feely Pisces will begin with an acute awareness of our individual emotional landscapes. In considering the state of humanity and our role on the planet, we may have drifted away from certain personal needs. Perhaps they seemed insignificant in the scheme of things, but the Pisces sun imparts a different point of view: Feelings are as real as anything else. When it comes to happiness, no one can feel it for you. If you need permission to go forth and make yourself happy, the Pisces sun (which begins on Tuesday the 18th) will grant it.

The Mercury retrograde is still going strong this week, and to make matters more interesting, next week gets even more retrograde action when Mars and Saturn reverse. Whatever minor logistical snafus you may run into, keep a light, positive attitude and remember that it could be worse! Note that if you can take extra time in the planning and preparation stages of your activities, stress and mistakes likely will be avoided. So send your mind ahead of your body. Think about as many possibilities as you can, and give yourself a backup wherever possible.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Michael Jordan has been called the greatest athlete of all time, though his all-star status was hard won. He was once cut from his high school team and was not considered the best player on his college team, either. The fleet-footed Aquarius (with Mercury and Saturn in Aquarius, too) applied intelligence, persistence and creativity to become an athlete for the ages.
