Gen­tle doors open; we can step in to op­por­tu­nity as our minds and hearts ex­pand this week as Jupiter sex­tiles Pluto, boost­ing our con­fi­dence and help­ing us to look for the light on the hori­zon.

This week­end we want to be part of the global com­mu­nity or the big wide world, but we may feel a bit fed up with our fel­low hu­mans nearby. Let the lit­tle prob­lems go and bond on the big is­sues as Venus con­juncts Nep­tune in Aquarius. Dance in the name of a good cause as art and pol­i­tics, cre­ativ­ity and spirit weave to­gether.

Our con­science guides us like a shep­herd­ing dog early in the week un­der a chal­leng­ing sun-Saturn as­pect. Some­times it’s hard to be a grown-up; our years and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties seem to gain weight.

We have work to do mid­week; there’s no get­ting around it. Don’t worry, just get started un­der the in­dus­tri­ous Capricorn moon. Look ahead to see where to go but not so far as to be over­whelmed; just be­gin and oc­ca­sion­ally look back to see how much got done. Later in the week we’re more able to talk about col­lec­tive action as Mer­cury en­ters Aquarius. Fri­day, Feb. 5: In the morn­ing, we may be cranky and opin­ion­ated; hu­mor can help if the jokes aren’t too barbed. Mixed feel­ings are nor­mal; we may be glad to be alone but hate to be iso­lated as the surly Scorpio moon bat­tles with ex­tro­verted Mars in Leo. Scathing cri­tiques may be more recre­ational than re­al­is­tic; let them roll off but look for a valid point un­der­neath. Tonight, en­joy a per­sonal re­treat or hang out where the mu­sic is so loud that no one needs to talk. Satur­day, Feb. 6: It’s a cu­ri­ous, ex­ploratory but rather bel­liger­ent morn­ing as the moon squares Venus. Look for serendip­i­tous mo­ments mid­day as the moon trines Uranus, and feel the mood grow ex­per­i­men­tal as the moon en­ters Sagittarius tonight. Climb out of the shell and ex­plore fresh ter­ri­tory as Jupiter sex­tiles Pluto. Sun­day, Feb. 7: Re­spon­si­bil­i­ties nip at our heels as the sun chal­lenges Saturn. Spir­i­tual prac­tice and art heals us; we need bread and roses, beauty as well as food. Our dreams can take us away or give us a goal to work to­ward, just watch that they don’t con­fuse us. Mon­day, Feb. 8: Read body lan­guage and ac­tions and note where they dif­fer from words. Ac­tions re­veal less-con­scious mo­tives while the sun chal­lenges Pluto. Don’t mis­take de­pres­sion for un­will­ing­ness at mid­day. Find out what’s bug­ging peo­ple, and see if they re­spond to a more hope­ful vi­sion. In the evening, a shared mo­ment heals us as the moon sex­tiles Ch­i­ron, Jupiter, and Venus. Tues­day, Feb. 9: In­stead of be­ing over­whelmed by the size of the moun­tain ahead as a re­spon­si­ble Capricorn moon con­juncts Pluto and squares Saturn, let’s get crack­ing on the one piece we can reach right now. Give peo­ple the facts this morn­ing. Hon­estly en­cour­ag­ing words help, but skip the fluff. This af­ter­noon, use a break to stand back and reeval­u­ate pri­or­i­ties. Wed­nes­day, Feb. 10: Wheel and deal with the best of them as Mer­cury en­ters Aquarius. The dif­fer­ence be­tween net­work­ing and gos­sip is in­ten­tion; choose care­fully. Ev­ery move is po­lit­i­cal— work the room, check in with fam­ily, con­tact politi­cians, and med­i­tate with com­mu­nity. We need to feel like we’re get­ting some­where; ap­pre­ci­ate ev­ery step of progress. Thurs­day, Feb. 11: If we can clear the decks to­day, we can wan­der in the more heart-cen­tered days ahead without drop­ping the ball. Tie up loose ends this morn­ing un­der the Capricorn moon and then work the fil­a­ments of con­nec­tion and creative in­spi­ra­tion this af­ter­noon as the moon en­ters Aquarius while Venus en­ters Pisces. ◀
