General Horoscope for February 28, 2019
We can only speak the whole truth today, even if we know conflict will follow. A creative Mercury-Saturn aspect encourages us to outline our thoughts, so communication is clear. A volatile Mercury-Mars square puts everyone on notice that we are less likely to back down from an argument, while the fixed Leo Moon adds to our stubbornness. But conversations quickly deepen while Mercury forms a cooperative sextile with Pluto, Lord of the Underworld.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
You are eager to talk about your dreams today but could grow annoyed if people don’t take your sharing seriously. Their attention may wander while you’re unfolding your interpretations of the symbolism that arises from your subconscious. Worse yet, others might even cut you off completely, without regard for your state of heightened vulnerability. You may need to resist your tendency to lash out at their rude behavior now. Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius wrote, “How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.”
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20

Dr. Debasish Mridha wrote, “Intelligence does not always define wisdom, but adaptability to change does.”
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
You are in your glory today, smoothly slipping in and out of conversations, being serious one moment and funny the next.

Marya Mannes wrote, “The sign of an intelligent people is their ability to control their emotions by the application of reason.”
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22

Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
You can skillfully turn any conversation into one about spirituality today. But you may have a particular axe to grind with someone who won’t play a supporting role in your story. You’re capable of transforming the nicest person into an unpleasant character if you don’t get your way now. Ironically, your connection to the metaphysical teachings you want to discuss is severed when you try to micromanage things from the top down. Author Julia Cameron wrote, “The creative process is a process of surrender, not control.”
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22

Unfortunately, your good intentions aren’t enough to make everything harmonious in your world now, especially when people’s beliefs take their thinking in a variety of directions.

Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
You’re not likely to hold much back when sharing your thoughts today. Although you can be very dramatic when you have a captive audience, going overboard with theatrics detracts from your heartfelt message. Rather than substantiating everything you say with facts, you’re more likely to employ your opinions. There’s nothing wrong with letting others know how you feel, but it’s only fair to inform them of your subjectivity from the start. Science Fiction author Philip K. Dick wrote, “Reality is just a point of view.”
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
You may be harboring deeply rooted feelings that you have no wish to share now. However, your unexpressed anger can tilt a conversation away from love and toward fear.

Unfortunately, it becomes obvious to others that you don’t really believe everything you’re saying today, leading them to doubt your other statements, too. Showing your vulnerability by revealing your less-than-optimum perspective can be quite cathartic as long as you steer clear of blame and self-pity.
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
You want everyone to know exactly where you stand and are certain that you can communicate your position with a high level of clarity today. However, something may go wrong even if you believe everything is going right. Logic comes naturally to you pragmatic Capricorns, but your words are tinged with aggression now; you can put others on the defense even if you are not attacking. Maintaining an emotionally clear posture is possible, but only if you fully own your suppressed feelings. Elie Wiesel taught, “Take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.”
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
The strength of your convictions is tested today when you are confronted with previously unconsidered facts. By discrediting the sources, you can reject the new information before you consider it.

Testing your faith now only strengthens it.
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
Creating a big to-do about nothing is one way to draw attention to your plight. However, you are likely to be misinterpreted by a coworker who thinks you just want to grab the spotlight. But personal recognition is not your primary motivation now; instead, you hope to cut through all the phony stories and help everyone see reality from a fresh perspective. But you may be so tied to your mission that you don’t even realize the consequences of your emotionally charged words. Marcel Proust wrote, “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”
