Horoscopes for the week of February 23rd

My prayer for today: Please help me to believe.

Depression is no joke. It can put you down for the count. It can make the simplest task difficult to complete. It can lead you to over eat, over sleep, over think. It can be the tears that wash your face before bedtime. Depression for me doesn’t feel bleak or heavy. It’s more lethargic with a mix of melancholy – life continues as it should, blessings and all, and yet my outlook is just “meh”. Unfortunately, this is not anything new. It comes and goes, more so during the winter months. I know that my experience is common among others. I also know that we will all soon snap out of it.

I’ve said before that the first few weeks of 2015 will feel like much of the same. No big changes. No real progress with resolutions. Still processing all that’s come to pass. Maybe even still clinging to the past. Many of you have written me to ask when all of this murky energy will shift. “Why do I still feel stuck,” one email said. “I’m unable to motivate myself,” wrote another reader. Trust me, I get it. I get it because I’m with you. I’m on the edge of my seat with my ephemeris checking down to the minute when the Universe will finally be aligned in a configuration that is more upbeat. It should please you to know that that just happened, around 5:13 p.m. EST on Saturday, February 21st.

Mars and Venus have recently entered the sign of Aries the Ram, a sign known to be action oriented with focused drive and initiative. Aries does not have time to sit and think about doing; Aries can only do. Mars is the traditional ruler of Aries, so the warrior planet is at home in this sign. Venus, however, is not so comfortable (as the traditional ruler of Libra, Aries’ opposite sign). Nevertheless, the planet of charm and grace is situated in a fiery disposition, and combined; there isn’t much these two planets can’t accomplish. The heat of both could melt the snow in the Northeast – it could ignite an inner passion that burns for the bold, the new and the different.

Keep in mind, however, that the Sun just recently moved into the water sign of Pisces. This means that we don’t quite yet have the green light to forge ahead with momentum; first we must clear the psychic dust and emotional muck that needs to be released, so that we can begin to put forth a more conscious effort when it comes to personal pursuits. But no matter, I’ll take what I can get right about now, even if it is just a hint of what’s in store. 2015 is soon to be officially underway,. A shift is coming just around the bend, moving into March.

Check your horoscope below to see what’s in store this week ahead, and be sure to read for your Ascendant sign too.

On the day you were born, all of the planets were positioned in the signs of the Zodiac – not just the Sun. To find out more about your full astrological make up, email Tracey for a personal Astrology reading at info@traceylrogers.com

Aries: You get a head start, Aries, and before any of the other Zodiac signs. Lucky you! Venus and Mars are currently lighting up your constellation, which means you can begin to start doing all of the things on your list of things to do. I realize that that is just what you intended, so I won’t try and stop you. But may I offer just a piece of advice? Pace yourself. You will channel this energy best by staying grounded in your efforts. Listen to your gut before making any rash moves. Go easy for now. Need a Life Coach?

Taurus: You are about to crash Taurus, and you may come down harder than you think. Are you surprised? You have been working your tail off with projects at the office, networking events, and so much more. When was the last time you went for a walk, or had a good meal, or did something nice for yourself? It’s OK for you to indulge, especially if it brings some level of calm and serenity. Take some time to go off the grid for the sake of self-nourishment. You’ll be back at it soon enough. Need a Life Coach? Visit traceylrogers.com to schedule your FREE Intake and Consultation.  

Gemini: If you want to see your dreams come to fruition, Gemini, you are going to have to link up with the right kind of folk. Never has there been a better opportunity for you to network and mingle, especially for the sake of career gains. I realize that what exactly career gains entail may be a bit fuzzy at the moment. But that is exactly why you need to be aligning yourself with a group or organization made up of your people. Don’t even think about thinking about it. Just go and do it Need a Life Coach?

Cancer: “I love my job; I love my job; I love my job.” This must be your mantra over the coming week and month, Cancer, because no matter your current circumstance, work is going to get busier and conflicts may arise. Know that adjustments will have to be made, and what transpires may be what inspires you to change your experience all together. Try not to let authority figures dampen your mood. Believe in your skills, and wear your new title as CIA with confidence (Cancer In Charge). Need a Life Coach? Visit traceylrogers.com to schedule your FREE Intake and Consultation.  

Leo: Ok Leo. Wanderlust will soon officially set in. This is usually the time of year when you feel the need to spread your wings and fly. Travel is one way to step outside of your comfort zone, as well as finding an outlet to express new philosophical beliefs and awareness. A new course of study is possible, hell; a new lot on life is possible! But before you take off never to look back, be sure to tie up certain loose ends first, like paying your taxes, or informing your partner that you’re on hiatus.  Need a Life Coach?

Virgo: The heat just picked up in the bedroom, or maybe you’re on the receiving end of a financial offer that you simply can’t refuse. Either way, you are being made to feel extra vulnerable; it would behoove you to sit with any hesitancy or discomfort, as opposed to attempting to fix the outcome. It’s nice to know that you’re valued, and that others want to invest in what you have to offer. Keep your cool and be sure to examine the risks. Don’t be too precise, and maybe try having a little fun. Need a Life Coach? Visit traceylrogers.com to schedule your FREE Intake and Consultation.  

Libra: It’s not you Libra; it really is hot on the relationship front! Whether you’re linking up for business or pleasure, relationship activity is heated. This could play out for you in a steamy and loving kind of way, or it could bring conflict (which might make making-up even better!). You’re in the mood for love, and you won’t be too shy to go after who you desire. If you can exercise a little charm, you may very well get what it is that you want. But try not to go overboard with demands. Need a Life Coach? Visit traceylrogers.com to schedule your FREE Intake and Consultation.  

Scorpio: The amount of stuff that you have to do, Scorpio, just quadrupled! As a result, you will need to be mindful of your general health and well-being. Many tasks will soon fill your plate, so much so that you’ll probably grow to resent it. But ultimately, you are learning how to manage your day-to-day in order to free up more space to do the things that you enjoy (like going to the gym, or volunteering at the local shelter). Learn to delegate if you can, keeping stress levels to a minimum. Need a Life Coach? Visit traceylrogers.com to schedule your FREE Intake and Consultation.  

Sagittarius: Fertile energy is afoot, dear Archer, which could see you focused more intently on a creative endeavor (whether it be a brain child or a physical one). This all plays into activity on the home and family front, especially as you attempt to make your house a home. Some serious nesting is possible, and a DIY project may start off innocently, and then morph in to something extreme. But if it floats your boat, so be it. Romance is also highlighted, along with pleasure seeking pursuits. Need a Life Coach? Visit traceylrogers.com to schedule your FREE Intake and Consultation.  

Capricorn: You are furious with activity on the home and family front, Capricorn, and this may see you involved in domestic quarrels. If you’re not relocating, this energy could also be interpreted as home renovations. No matter how things play out, emotions will be high and tension will be felt. What this all boils down to is emotional freedom – freedom from feeling obligated to loved ones and freedom to create a warm space that is your home. FYI, this all starts with you; find inner peace.

Aquarius: Communications and interactions pick up in your ‘hood, Aquarius. Some of you may be starting a new course of study while others are visiting new locales in search of a new home. Keep in mind that such activities require money, and you will need to make sure that you’ve got enough. Actually, it’s not so much a necessity that you have enough, as much as it will be important that you only spend what you have on what you value. Identify what that is before you decide to invest.

Pisces: As your birthday month gets underway, your attention shifts to money. You may be looking to identify additional sources of income, or simply focused on getting your financial affairs in order for the sake of future ambitions and long-term security. What you value is changing, Pisces. It’s becoming more and more clear where your priorities lie. As you receive extra energy from the Sun in your sign, you will be that much more inclined to demand what you want and need. Take the risk.  Need a Life Coach?
