Eye on the Sky: February 2008

Guest astrologer Anne Windsor gives us some guidelines for the month at hand.

"What is genius but the power of expressing a new individuality?"
-Elizabeth Barrett Browning

An almost imperceptible shade of gray separates the unique from the weird, the unusual from the wacky. Step too far left of eclectic and people start asking you if you've taken your medication or if you need a ride back to the group home.

On the other hand, paring away the rough edges of your personality to conform neatly to the rules and regulations of political correctness doesn't exactly work either. Eventually, you have to make peace with your inner wild child and realize that your quirks and oddities are a good thing.

And what sign is better suited to help you dance to the beat of a different drummer than Aquarius? If you really want to make the most of the sign of bright ideas you'll resist the temptation to rush headlong into the romantic depths of a certain upcoming holiday. Instead, you can use the Solar Eclipse on February 6 to break out of your rut and change the overall landscape in your life. Yes, Aquarius is the sign of evolution as well as revolution, and the gods are beckoning you to pull up stakes and roll with them.

But this isn't just some screwy, hare-brained, version of cabin fever and mid-life crisis rolled into one. Thanks to the hyper-organized Virgo Lunar Eclipse on the 20th, you can actually make some headway. Especially if you take time to pause and ponder the progress you've already made and address the practical issues that you may have overlooked back when you first set your brilliant plans into motion.

So, go ahead; dust off those goals and aspirations and New Year's resolutions that have been kicking around in the dark corners of your consciousness. The cosmos will be more than happy to help you get back on track, unearth your individuality and reveal your genius, no matter how unconventional and unusual you really want to be when you grow up.

Read your moon and rising sign, if you know them, too.
Aries (March 21 – April 20): You may be ready to move ahead with your life, but the heavens are hinting that you'd do well to stop, to listen, and to dream just for a little while. You'll be amazed how a little quiet time can refresh your perspective and breathe new life into your long-term goals.
Best Day(s): 1, 2, 10, 11, 19, 20, 28, 29

Taurus (April 20 – May 21): There's just no way around it-you are facing some very difficult decisions these days. Ultimately, you have to decide if you're 'being' all that you can be, or if you've allowed yourself to become complacent for fear of rocking the boat.
Best Day(s): 3, 4, 12, 13, 21, 22

Gemini (May 21 – June 22): The ball is not exactly in your court, and by the end of the month you could end up feeling overwhelmed by all of the significant "others" in your life. Take some time to figure out who will stay and who will go so that you aren't trying to be all things to all people. And if all else fails, take the high road in all things.
Best Day(s): 6, 7, 14, 15, 23, 24

Cancer (June 22 – July 23): Admit it; deep down, under the neat, tidy, secure life that you love so much is a part of you that just wants to do wild and crazy things. It's astonishing how much more meaning you can glean from life when you step out of the well-worn pathways of your everyday existence and take a walk on the wild side every now and then.
Best Day(s): 8, 9, 16, 17, 26, 27

Leo (July 23 – August 22): Despite the disappointment and disillusionment you have experienced in personal or professional relationships in the last few months, there is hope for a new beginning. It's up to you to size up the potential for a fresh start, but at the very least, stop the blame game.
Best Day(s): 1, 2, 10, 11, 19, 20, 28, 29

Virgo (August 22 – September 22): Try something new: write out a description of your ideal day. Now, compare that with what is on your day planner. Are you filling your life with busy work, or are you making measurable progress towards your heart's desire?
Best Day(s): 3, 4, 12, 13, 21, 22

Libra (September 22 – October 23): Love is in the air, but so are tension, stress, and miscommunication. Surprisingly, it's you who will most likely fire the first shot in this week's battle. Once you've got your partner's attention, don't stop till you've spoken your heart and mind. Oh, and if the warfront is at work, prepare to tell your boss how it really is.
Best Day(s): 6, 7, 14, 15, 23, 24

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22): Love and money don't always go together; so don't be surprised if you and your sweetie get into it about needs versus wants. Stop yourself before you give her the cold shoulder…or it could be more than just your shoulder that gets cold in the winter nights ahead.
Best Day(s): 8, 9, 16, 17, 26, 27

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 22): You want to move ahead in your relationship-your lover isn't so confident. And what's worse is that every time you try to talk it out, there's always some kind of misunderstanding. Solution? Relax, stop pushing and give the other person plenty of time to think things through.
Best Day(s): 1, 2, 10, 11, 19, 20, 28, 29

Capricorn (December 22 – January 21): Steer clear of the gossipy group around the water cooler and cut a wide path around office politics this month. Focus on future projects, instead. As for your personal life, take some time and get away with your sweetie.
Best Day(s): 3, 4, 12, 13, 21, 22

Aquarius (January 21- February 19): Your kids, your friends, and your lovers will take you on quite a ride this month. What's more, you'll be feeling so sensitive you won't be able to invoke your usual "Spock-logic" in relationships. There's nothing to do but to take some time out so you don't lose your self in an ocean of emotion.
Best Day(s): 6, 7, 14, 15, 23, 24

Pisces (February 19 – March 21): Whether you want to write a book, paint a painting, or become president, it is about time for you to figure out how you will turn your vision into reality. Take stock of your relationships and determine how they contribute to or detract from your ability to succeed.
Best Day(s): 8, 9, 16, 17, 26, 27
