Your zone of part­ner­ships is be­ing highly ac­ti­vated ad­vis­ing you to re­store bal­ance to a sig­nif­i­cant re­la­tion­ship in your life. This is the time that your part­ner leads and you lis­ten, for a change! Any op­po­si­tion from your side will only weaken you but if you are in the right and know it to be so, then stand your ground, but do so gra­ciously and har­mo­niously. There are ways to counter the op­po­si­tion and it is not by force! You will have to learn that les­son, over and over, if you haven’t al­ready, un­til you have mas­tered it and made it part of your in­her­ent na­ture.


Work con­tin­ues to be im­por­tant to you dur­ing this pe­riod and com­mu­ni­cat­ing with oth­ers re­lated to work, health, an­i­mals, col­leagues or daily rou­tines is ben­e­fi­cial for you. It is about restor­ing peace, har­mony and bal­ance to these spheres that al­lows you to flow ar­tis­ti­cally and build re­la­tion­ships. How­ever, Saturn and the now-di­rect Pluto will pose chal­lenges from over­seas or higher ed­u­ca­tion mat­ters that in­hibit your need to sched­ule your daily ac­tiv­i­ties, fo­cus on your work or take care of your health, an­i­mals and col­leagues. This is the time to re­solve these out­stand­ing con­flicts that will sur­face dur­ing this pe­riod that lasts un­til Oc­to­ber 22 ap­prox­i­mately.


The week con­tin­ues to boost your leisure life that in­vites ro­mance, your chil­dren, recre­ation and cre­ativ­ity to be a part of the fun and frolic. So, it is said again, this is a good time to un­wind and en­joy life. No doubt, there is much hap­pen­ing in work, health and other rou­tine mat­ters. Con­sider this a bustling week that may be di­vided be­tween work and play. How­ever, strong chal­lenges sur­face from joint fi­nan­cial re­straints and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and ad­vises you and your part­ner to get a grip on the joint re­sources or the hol­i­day may be­come a fi­nan­cial un­do­ing. Still, for the bet­ter part, it is good to take a break and en­joy life – it’s beauty, art and har­mony. Give into bliss but mon­i­tor your fi­nances even as you do!


Pluto turns di­rect this week and it is time to con­tend with a strong, op­pos­ing part­ner­ship that brings out power strug­gles, re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, re­straints, trans­for­ma­tion and even de­struc­tion (sym­bol­i­cally speak­ing). The un­do­ing of a part­ner­ship or the greater re­spon­si­bil­ity to one’s part­ner is at hand. This would not be an ideal time to op­pose the re­la­tion­ship or the sig­nif­i­cant other in le­gal mat­ters. It is best to draw a truce or work at un­der­stand­ing the part­ner. It may not be easy dur­ing this pe­riod as there are chal­lenges re­lated to home and fam­ily that shake your foun­da­tion and that of your re­la­tion­ship. But, you need to find bal­ance, re­store har­mony and seek beauty in your home that coaxes your re­la­tion­ship to lighten up, so you can han­dle things bet­ter.


Pluto is back to for­ward mo­tion and re-em­pha­sizes, along with Saturn, the re­al­ity and re­spon­si­bil­ity re­lated to work, health, an­i­mals, col­leagues and your daily rou­tines. You are be­com­ing su­per con­sci­en­tious and re­spon­si­ble to­wards work, health and those in your ev­ery­day life – even your an­i­mals. How­ever, be aware that this driven need for work meets re­sis­tance and need to change through those around, through sib­lings, through ed­u­ca­tion and all forms of com­mu­ni­ca­tion. De­light­ful, en­gag­ing trips and talks are on the agenda that may get in the way of your se­ri­ous and ded­i­cated at­ti­tude to work and health. You will need to make changes to en­ter­tain both spheres with­out ne­glect­ing one for the other.


The Sun and Mer­cury in Li­bra con­tinue to influence you in re­la­tion to your per­sonal fi­nances where ad­vi­sors and well-wish­ers come for­ward to en­hance your fi­nan­cial worth. How­ever, there are chal­lenges to you build­ing your fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity from the need to un­wind and give se­ri­ous at­ten­tion to love, chil­dren, recre­ation and cre­ativ­ity as money can be­come an is­sue. You will con­tinue to find bal­ance and mon­i­tor your fi­nances dur­ing this pe­riod that es­tab­lishes how much is needed for the fun side of life and keep that pace go­ing, un­wa­ver­ingly in ev­ery month to come. Con­tinue to en­joy com­mu­ni­cat­ing with those around and seek those op­por­tu­ni­ties that bring fi­nan­cial prom­ise or a good re­la­tion­ship your way.


The Sun and Mer­cury con­tinue to spot­light you and en­cour­age you to be your best – pleas­ant, charm­ing, re­fined, bal­anced, beau­ti­ful and artis­tic in your thought, word and deed. Your fi­nances are also be­ing urged to grow and you are do­ing so pas­sion­ately. How­ever, chal­lenges from home and fam­ily ap­pear tougher to solve as Pluto has turned di­rect and con­joins with Saturn to bring about trans­for­ma­tion through dis­ci­pline, author­ity, re­straint and re­spon­si­bil­ity. It can be tough fol­low­ing your own path, but changes need to be made be­tween the con­flict­ing spheres of self and home/fam­ily and bal­ance must be re­stored. As for your per­sonal fi­nances, mon­i­tor care­fully as the cur­rent urge to splurge on ro­mance, chil­dren and get­aways are back on the rise.


The Sun and Mer­cury con­tinue to ad­vise you to re­main out of the spot­light and take that much­needed break. It is a good time to fol­low spir­i­tual in­ter­ests and med­i­tate, calm and bal­ance the mind. You can do this through beauty and art. How­ever, chal­lenges may be stronger dur­ing this pe­riod as there is a di­rect clash with your need to rest and re­main incog­nito and your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and trans­for­ma­tion re­lated to your cur­rent en­vi­ron­ment and those around you. You will need to bal­ance these two con­flict­ing spheres so that you get enough rest yet ful­fill your du­ties that per­tain to your cur­rent habi­tat. Re­mem­ber, Lady Luck is on your side and is in full bloom for this week.


Pluto turns di­rect this week and will be this way un­til April 23, 2019 in­di­cat­ing that you may go ahead with putting your fi­nances in or­der. Take re­spon­si­bil­ity for your per­sonal fi­nances and seek ad­vices from the stal­warts in the fi­nan­cial sec­tor – those who are se­nior to you. This may ap­pear harder be­cause of chal­lenges re­lated to the lighter side of so­cial­iz­ing that in­volve so­cial causes, groups, events, or­ga­ni­za­tions, friends and ac­quain­tances. Take care how you spend your re­sources on these so­cial causes be­cause there are chances of you go­ing fi­nan­cially over­board with these mat­ters. Re­mem­ber to get your beauty sleep too!


With Pluto turn­ing di­rect and team­ing up with Saturn in your own sign, it in­di­cates that you are back in power and in con­trol. You are strong and seek trans­for­ma­tion and em­pow­er­ment with your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. You are a force to reckon with and in author­ity of the self. This is a strong pe­riod where you can cre­ate or de­stroy. So, be care­ful how you han­dle self and oth­ers. Be very care­ful as this pe­riod brings chal­lenges from your pro­fes­sional and pub­lic life­style that in­hibits you from pur­su­ing your in­di­vid­ual path. Strike a bal­ance be­tween these two zones, find­ing so­lu­tions and re­solv­ing con­flicts that nat­u­rally ex­ist be­tween these two spheres. Stay in com­mand.


The Sun and Mer­cury con­tinue to open doors for you in con­nec­tion to over­seas, higher ed­u­ca­tion, for­eign me­dia and in-law mat­ters. This is a good time to travel and ex­pand over­seas. It pro­motes you and en­cour­ages you to fol­low your vi­sion. How­ever, you may face chal­lenges from a re­stric­tive past, from ill­ness, or from se­cret au­thor­i­ties who con­sider that con­fine­ment or re­treat is best suited for you dur­ing this pe­riod. But, you need to find so­lu­tions so that you get your rest and keep your au­thor­i­ties or el­ders happy as well as take that flight to pro­mote and ex­pand the self. If there are changes to be made in your pro­fes­sion or pub­lic life, this would be the time to make it.


FEB 21 MAR 20

The Sun and Mer­cury con­tinue to ad­vise you to fo­cus on your joint fi­nan­cial ven­tures with your part­ner, busi­ness and/or per­sonal. It calls for you to ex­change and in­ter­act with your part­ner and ar­rive at bal­anced, fair and equal so­lu­tions that ben­e­fit both you, your part­ner and the ven­ture that you two have em­barked upon for your fu­ture. How­ever, with Pluto turn­ing di­rect and em­pow­er­ing Saturn in your so­cial ven­ture sec­tor, you will need to stay bal­anced with fi­nances when it is about fur­ther­ing a so­cial cause or stag­ing a so­cial event. Re­mem­ber that your luck is with over­seas ex­pan­sion and fi­nances so put that to good use dur­ing this week be­fore the fi­nan­cial ret­ro­grade be­gins next week.
