Its written in the stars for Feburary (cont.)

Part 2

The aspects you have to your career are rare and brilliantly beautiful. Once those aspects fade in November 2006, they will not return for 12 years. Until then, you will have a superb opportunity to make your mark and build a solid reputation that will remain with you in the years to come.

On Tuesday, February 14, Venus will contact Jupiter, now based in your 10th house of honors and career achievement. On that day, you could easily score a major victory. Put a gold star on that day, plus or minus one day.

With all this excitement in your career going on it would be ideal to have a partner's support but it appears that this person is not being cooperative. In fact, he or she is not likely to give an inch on whatever topic you both appear to be stuck.

I am not sure why this person seems so obstinate or aloof. The identity of this person could be your spouse, steady lover, business partner, collaborator, or someone who represents you in business (like an agent) but this person's behaviour has troubled you. Even if you ended the relationship your chart suggests that the disappointment is clearly still lingering with you.

Emotionally, you may feel isolated and without the emotional support you need. I am so sorry to have to tell you this, dear aquarius, I am reminded of the phrase "Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger" - we all laugh when we hear that axiom, but it does have a ring of truth to it.

If you feel you are the exception to the rule, that your romantic partner is a loving person and quite supportive, then it may be that you are worried about the health or welfare of your partner, or that you have your hands full with a very difficult market situation where a competitor has become ruthless about stealing a piece of your market share.

It is imperative that you keep your health strong, as Saturn opposed to the Sun is a strenuous aspect. If you were born on or within 5 days of January 27th you are feeling the strainmore than other members of your sign. If that is you, you need lots of tender loving care over the coming several months. Do whatever you need to care for your mind body, and spirit, dear Aquarius.

Those readers born near February 13 should guard against colds, but only during this month.

This troublesome partner - or competitor - is likely to present himself at the full moon in Leo, February 13. At that time feelings will reach a critical stage, and a great deal of truth will emerge. If you have harbored certain expectations that clearly won't materialize, this day may prove to be disillusioning.

Part 3

However, things could work the other way too. You may have supposed your partner was not serious about committing only to discover that nothing could be further from the truth! Plans to wed could fall into place rather quickly. As you see, extremes-breakups and engagements/weddings - will be very likely at this full moon, which falls the day prior to Valentine's Day.

All full moon's have a plus or minus four days of influence, so Valentine's Day falls right in the path of that full moon. The upside is that you will understand your relationship in a way you had not previously, and you will be better able to plan your future.

If you are born on February 13, plus or minus five days, you will feel the effect of this full moon more personally than other Aquarians. Keep in mind that you do have many winning cards, so there is no reason to feel at a disadvantage.

If you are single and want to start dating, you'll be in luck this month, for Mars is about to swing into action to add zip and energy to your social life. In a rare visit to your fith house of true love from February 17 to April 13, you'll start to see the lively effects almost immediately of having the Red Planet behind you. In fact, with Mars in Gemini, the planet of the twins, two sweethearts may emerge at once!

Look your best and get out more to show your face to the world. The love interest(s) you meet from February 17 - April 13 could prove to be a keeper. You've not had much help from the universe in matters of the heart in past months, but now you do; use it for all it's worth! Your timing could not be better.

Best nights to enjoy love: February 1, 6, 7, 25, and 26.

Financially, you have some surprises coming but they seem to be happy ones. One never knows the precise outcome when your ruler, Uranus , is involved, for this planet rules all unexpected developments in a chart. The reason that I am upbeat about your financial picture is that you have a new moon on February 28, which will open a two-week window. That new moon will allow you to uncover a whole new way to bring in additional income. This would be money you earn, not win, but that's good news, for luck would have nothing to do with your success! You will have earned it!

This new moon on February 28 will orbit close to Uranus, so whatever happens will happen very suddenly, like a thunderbolt from out of the blue. You may get a phone call, a boom - you'll be asked to make a decision and quickly, too. Indeed, you may find yourself in the right place at the right time - there may be something strange or very random about the way you get your financial opportunity. Who cares? What matters is that you do.

Part 4

Jupiter, the planet of abundance, expansion, and happiness will be in a good angle to Uranus - close enough to help you land a nice raise or new salary offer. This is certainly something to cheer about, so as you see you will end the month on a very happy note.

Before I go I want to urge you to use this month to be as productive as you can be. Sign contracts early in the month, for March will bring Mercury in retrograde almost the entire month, plus there will be two eclipses. The atmosphere in March will be confusing and filled with cosmic dust and it will be hard to see the road ahead. Keep your schedule light, especially mid month.

Happy Amateurs Day

Thanks to Cjristina's parents for the title of this blog...

Remember those candy conversation hearts that we always handed out? The ones that tasted nasty but were "oh so cool". I found a quiz (thanks Brian) and I couldn't decide on one of the questions on the quiz so I will give you both my results and let you decide...

Your Candy Heart Says "Hug Me"

A total sweetheart, you always have a lot of love to give out.
Your heart is open to where ever love takes you!

Your ideal Valentine's Day date: a surprise romantic evening that you've planned out

Your flirting style: lots of listening and talking

What turns you off: fighting and conflict

Why you're hot: you're fearless about falling in love

Your Candy Heart Says "Get Real"

You're a bit of a cynic when it comes to love.
You don't lose your head, and hardly anyone penetrates your heart.

Your ideal Valentine's Day date: is all about the person you're seeing (with no mentions of v-day!)

Your flirting style: honest and even slightly sarcastic

What turns you off: romantic expectations and "greeting card" holidays

Why you're hot: you don't just play hard to get - you are hard to get

I think that says it all...oh yeah and as AppleAnnie says, all the cool kids are doing "it" the link to find out what "it" is :-)

Bitter, Confused, and Depressed NO MORE...

As almighty powerful as I may be, I am still yet to uncover the power to control people's thoughts or actions. If I had I would definitely be much more financially secure and in a much different place in my life. Alas, I have recently discovered that I have been the inspiration for some disturbing drama and I would like to set the record straight.

Over the past few years I have allowed myself to be changed from the person that I really am to the person that some people perceive me to be. While I do not give a damn about what these other people perceptions of me are, I have allowed mean people's comments and actions to get under my skin. This has got to stop. While I maintain that I have every right to be bitter for letting myself believe the lies that have succeeded in sucking me into other people's warped sense of reality, this bitterness is counterproductive. As I am determined to make a difference in this world I have to forgive myself.

I have grown a great deal in the past 8 months. I have successfully moved to a new place and made new wonderfully supportive friends while managing to stay close with the people who truly love me from my past. While I have physically (geographically, sexually, ect.) moved on with much success I have not been quite so successful at putting the resentment and misery of the past 10 years behind me. It is easy for those who are not hurt by their actions to say "move on...get over it" but how exactly do you forgive yourself for and forget about falling for the same lies you watched some of your best friends fall for, for trusting someone when they told you that everything you wanted in life was their dream as well and you would take care of EACH OTHER in order to get there, and finally, for doing everything in your power to squelch the ever present fear of failure while knowing that these fears are not unfounded because at some point things have changed and you are not even in the top 20 important persons in the life of the person who has made you believe they love you yet who treats you with increasing disrespect and maliciousness? How do you cope when you find out the things that were said about you when you weren't around rival those that you have heard them say about others?

In the wise words of many of the people who are my lifeline these days there is nothing that anyone can do to you if you don't allow them to. The person that has been hurting me is ME! I have allowed people to put me on a path to being the insane person they believe me to be and before I can "get over it" I must say NO MORE! I must forgive myself for being human. I must not let these hateful people have the power to hurt me. I do NOT have to forgive and forget the lies and betrayals that I have endured, however, I do have to seperate myself from them. Karma is a bitch, and I have to believe that those who deserve it will get what they deserve as I have.

While I accept that there is nothing that I can do to make ignorant people understand my point of view, I am able to put the past where it the past. I know I am meant for big things and staying connected to the pain, misery, and lonliness that is associated with the past is not the way to achieve it. Therefore, I want it to be clear that I do not support, endorse, or in any way promote anything done on my behalf. If I have something to say, I WILL SAY IT! However, by the same token, I can not stop people who love me from forming their own opinions. Nor do I have any power to stop them, if they so choose, from expressing them. If they happen to agree with my own opinions that does NOT mean that I have put them up to expressing them, nor does that mean I have done anything more than explain my perspective and give them the tools to learn about the alternative points of view that are available. This is no different, I am sure, from what anyone else involved has done.

In closing, I demand that people stop projecting their darkness of spirit, ulterior motives, and backstabbing ways onto me...I have ENOUGH problems to overcome. Someday these people will find that their words have come back to haunt them and when they do I don't want or need to hear anything about it....I'M OUT! (Insert Joe Smith hand thingy here)

Do you believe in magic?

She tapped her finger & nothing happened & she thought she had lost her magic, but it had only changed & it took her awhile to figure it out.

What's in the stars for Feburary

For me and my fellow aquarians it is going to be an exciting month according to Verizon Wireless' mobile astrology zone. Read on if you interested in finding out what is supposed to happen for me. I'll post at the end of the month to tell you how it actually turned out.

Part 1:

February finds you ready to break out of your box, try new things, and upset the apple cart. GOOD! That's always your best role in the scheme of things, o this month, as they say, "Let you be you." You'll be feeling strong and confident, for th Sun, Neptune, and Mercury will be in Aquarius. You'll be able to show the full range of your vision too, and even if others don't always understand, they will sense that you are on to something.

The new moon that fell recently on January 29th was in aquarius, an important moment in your timeline, for it will surely open an exciting new path. As you begin February, that powerful new moon will still bring you plenty of passion and might, and will encourage you to scale new heights. With so many planets stacking up in Aquarius at the start of February, luck is on your side. You won't have to choose just one area of your life to concentrate on either - in this rar environment, almost ALL areas will glow brightly.

While you have such a strong sense of authority, present your plan and move your troops forward. Act like the pathfinder that you wereborn to be! There's no reason to second guess yourself - dispel naysayers and follow your intuition.

If you were born on January 29th, your coming year will be an unusually vital one for you.for you are about to start a new chapter in your life. In fact, for you, your birthday year to come could serve as a benchmark from which you measure future years. To host a new moon on the anniversary of your birth is considered very rare and special.

At the same time, Mars created a dichotomy between your home and professional life creating a tug-of-war between the two. No matter what you did, you felt like you were shortchanging the other one. That created inescapable tension, and only you know how successful you were in balancing the two. When Mars exits Taurus on February 17, this home-and-family area will finally calm down. You will feel as though a weight has been lifted from your shoulders. The ever-present tension you had to learn to live with will be dispelled. Whew!

All the good news has and will continue to emanate from your career zone. If people back home felt relegated to second place in your life, it would be understandbale. Still you probably correctly sensed that you had a tiger by the tail and you could not take your eyes off your projects at work. So much of what you had worked so hard to achieve over the past years was finally coming to fruition. Somehow, you had to keep the people at home patient.

Things to remember in 2006!

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height.
Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.

2. Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down. (keep this In mind if you are one of those grouches;)

3. Keep learning:
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening,
whatever. Never let the brain get idle.

"An idle mind is the devil's workshop."

And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and Lots of time with HIM/HER.

6. The tears happen:

Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourself. LIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love:

Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health:

If it is good, preserve it.

If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips.
Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

But do share this with someone.
