Whitsunday Times - - CHILL - with Patsy Ben­nett Au­thor of As­trol­ogy: Se­crets of the Moon pat­sy­ben­net­tas­trol­ for read­ings as­tro­


The align­ment of Mars and Pluto will bring your in­ner war­rior out, help­ing you take great strides ahead, espe­cially in your ca­reer and so­cial life. Cir­cum­stances may also ask that you be­come more proac­tive and dy­namic. Avoid a fiery tem­per, and keep your in­ner critic to your­self, as this could do harm – not least to your­self. You’ll find out whether an idea or project is vi­able.


This is your week to get su­per-busy and to meet your goals head-on. When Mars and Pluto align, this is your time to shine. De­vel­op­ments will con­cen­trate in the ar­eas of work, health, sports and well­be­ing. How­ever, it’s vi­tal you back up your good in­ten­tions with care and at­ten­tion to health, fi­nances and to build­ing your en­ergy re­serves. Man­age th­ese well, and you could ex­cel.


You’ll ap­pre­ci­ate the sense that your plans, aims and goals are com­ing to­gether and, even if you don’t at­tain a par­tic­u­lar goal, you’ll see that your hard work is head­ing in the right di­rec­tion. A fam­ily or do­mes­tic de­vel­op­ment may take you into fresh ter­ri­tory, but with a sen­si­tive ap­proach to those you are with, you could ex­cel. A sports or work project should flourish.


You may re­visit a cir­cum­stance, but this time you’ll have the benefit of hind­sight, en­abling you to ap­proach the mat­ter with a more philo­soph­i­cal out­look. As you head to­wards the end of the week, a good out­come to key de­vel­op­ments is likely, as long as you avoid im­pul­sive­ness and are mo­ti­vated by your true feel­ings. Avoid play­ing se­cond fid­dle; let your light shine.


A heal­ing or health-ori­en­tated at­mos­phere will per­me­ate your home and do­mes­tic cir­cum­stances this week. You may find that re­vis­it­ing a re­la­tion­ship brings out bit­ter-sweet mem­o­ries or, con­versely, that you are able to over­come sen­ti­men­tal­ity. A lovely change of tempo will in­clude the chance to re­fuel en­ergy lev­els. Avoid power strug­gles, as th­ese will lead nowhere fast.


Aim for your goals and try to get new ideas im­ple­mented be­fore Thurs­day, when Saturn, your sign’s ruler, will turn ret­ro­grade un­til the end of Au­gust. You could make ma­jor head­way at work, with sports in­ter­ests and health mat­ters. But this will de­pend on your abil­ity to struc­ture your sched­ule well and to show a com­pas­sion­ate ap­proach to friends and fam­ily.


This may be a ‘hard-work’ week but it will be worth the ef­fort. The more en­ergy you put into ven­tures, the bet­ter the out­come. Avoid tak­ing an ad­ver­sar­ial ap­proach, or you could make an en­emy. If you fo­cus, in­stead, on mak­ing solid, prac­ti­cal progress with peo­ple you in­ter­act with, you could scale moun­tains. Avoid overt self-crit­i­cism, and help peo­ple who need an ego boost.


A change of pace will af­fect prin­ci­pally your home life or do­mes­tic re­la­tion­ships. It’s time to leave some pa­ram­e­ters be­hind and ven­ture into new cir­cum­stances, and at least to be­gin to see some­one in a new light. Cer­tain re­la­tion­ship will blos­som; oth­ers may be more dif­fi­cult. Ap­proach the lat­ter sen­si­tively. Avoid mis­un­der­stand­ings and traf­fic de­lays by plan­ning ahead.


You’ll make great progress with a group, friend or or­gan­i­sa­tion this week, and in­cor­po­rat­ing team­work in your ef­forts will prove re­ward­ing. This is also a good week to make progress at home, with fam­ily and at work, espe­cially if you work from home. For some mid-Fe­bru­ary Aquar­i­ans, a trip could be trans­for­ma­tional. Avoid over­spend­ing and be­ing too hard on your­self.


You’ll en­joy get­ting to­gether with like-minded peo­ple, and the sense that you are get­ting ahead with your favourite projects. How­ever, a lit­tle com­pro­mise, meet­ing peo­ple half­way and net­work­ing may be nec­es­sary to avoid hard feel­ings or the sense that you are miss­ing out in some way. A change of lo­ca­tion or a de­vel­op­ment in a re­la­tion­ship could be part of a big­ger change.


You’ll ap­pre­ci­ate the sense that you can get ahead with your plans this week in a me­thod­i­cal and prac­ti­cal way. Work and group ven­tures, espe­cially, can progress now. A par­tic­u­lar re­la­tion­ship will also feel more pas­sion­ate or en­livened by the Mars-Pluto align­ment to­wards the end of the week. Avoid tak­ing ran­dom com­ments per­son­ally and over­spend­ing.


Ven­tures with or­gan­i­sa­tions and friends should go well this week, and you may also achieve a sense of ac­com­plish­ment at work or fi­nan­cially. A high­light of the week will be a trip, news or in­for­ma­tion that can boost your sta­tus or feel-good fac­tor. You may re­visit an old haunt. Avoid tak­ing de­vel­op­ments that don’t go per­fectly per­son­ally; you’ll get an­other bite at the cherry.
