General Horoscope for February 7, 2019
Yesterday’s unresolved issues may still be lingering, but they could reach a turning point today when the transformational Scorpio Moon forms a stressful square with the community-minded Aquarius Sun. Individual perspectives give way to group consensus, urging us to explore the new landscape that evolves as our fixed positions begin to change. We shift our focus from past trials to future possibilities while Luna tangos with hopeful Jupiter.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
Everyone has a role to play in your grand plan today. But you may begin to catch hints that all isn’t necessarily unfolding according to the script you imagined. Thankfully, open rebellion is not likely, yet someone could begin to question your assumptions and suggest other routes to your chosen destination. Although all roads do not lead to Rome, there are many ways to fulfill your dreams. Be tenacious about your goals but flexible about your methods.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
Your persistence can turn a difficult encounter into a wonderful opportunity, but you must remain open to negotiation if you want things to improve. Unfortunately, being stuck on one course of action is limiting and prevents you from seeing other alternatives. You can help your cause by clearly explaining your current position, which of your points are sacrosanct and where you might be willing to give a little in return for something else. President John F. Kennedy said, “Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.”
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
Receiving the cooperation of your peers may be more important than succeeding on your own today. Unfortunately, assistance comes with a price tag now, and you must be willing to pay for it one way or another. Buying support with promises of preferential treatment may be a necessary evil, but don’t offer anything that puts your values into question. Enlightened diplomacy in the right hands is an effective way to accomplish agreements that previously seemed impossible.
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
It really doesn’t matter how young or old you are now, your inner child is poised and ready to rise to the occasion. However, people expect you to meet your obligations before heading out to the playground for a self-declared recess. Nevertheless, you could get away with a well-timed escape if you plan it in advance. But overextending your break would be a mistake. The sooner you return to work, the earlier you’ll be able to call it quits for the day. Neale Donald Walsh wrote, “The struggle ends when gratitude begins.”
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
Your smile effortlessly puts people at ease. You intuitively know the right things to say that encourage others to shine brightly. But organizing fun events might also be an easy way to distract everyone’s attention, including your own, from a deeper malaise that you want to keep private today. Nevertheless, playing the role of ringleader can quickly grow tiring once you realize your true motives. Although putting on a happy face is easier than facing your fears, there’s no reason to play pretend. Your truth stands on its own and needs no justification.
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
There are so many thoughts and feelings swirling around inside your head today that you don’t know where to begin. You need to get them out into the open, but finding someone worthy of your trust now can be an uphill climb. Naturally, writing in a journal could be extraordinarily helpful, but it’s not enough. You crave the intimacy of having someone present to hear your words, reflect them back to you, and engage in heartfelt dialogue about your process. A French proverb teaches, “A problem shared is a problem halved.”
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
You might feel like you’re living proof of Isaac Newton’s theories of motion. If no one interferes with your work, you’ll continue on your way with your current momentum. You are enthusiastic about your trajectory and appear to have an exact destination in mind. But there are those who wish to subtly lure you off course and, therefore, alter your overall direction. They may claim they’re well-intended, but they are not trusted allies today. Honor your intuition over the noise of others.
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
You are sure that you’re on the right track, but may begin to doubt yourself if others keep questioning your wisdom. At first, you simply dismiss the feedback you’re receiving from people who wonder if you’re capable of delivering on your promises. But you grow annoyed if someone thinks you should abandon your plans. Nevertheless, you are a better judge of your potential success now than anyone else. Don’t be discouraged by second-hand negativity. William Blake wrote, “If the fool would persist in his folly, he would become wise.”
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
You want to maintain your positive outlook today, but discouragement may set in when you realize how much work there is yet to do. Your natural tendency is to hide your uncertainty, but negative emotions gain power if you bury them. Contrary to common sense, talking about your feelings of inadequacy actually helps you rebuild your confidence now. Acknowledging your humanness might remove you from the pedestal, but also sets your feet back on solid ground. Your vulnerability becomes your most valued asset.
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
Your friends may ride to your rescue today, especially if you committed to accomplishing more than is humanly possible. But instead of letting anyone down, acquaintances and coworkers start showing up with food, good vibes, and time to volunteer. At first, you are overwhelmed with gratitude, but old “shoulds” rise to the surface now, reminding you that you can do it all yourself. Nevertheless, being receptive to the support offered opens a doorway to magic. Kiera Cass wrote, “Accepting help is its own kind of strength.”
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
You possess an abundance of positive energy today and, fortunately, can put it to good use at work. You naturally gravitate toward an authoritative role because your upbeat attitude sets a tone that provokes others to believe in themselves. Rather than building up someone’s self-esteem through words of encouragement, you help people acknowledge their potential by inspiring them with your behavior. Leadership is neither a position or a title, it’s action and example.
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
You might attempt to keep your silence today, but only for so long. There is dynamic conflict between your logical head and your irrational heart that won’t settle down and the distraction can get in the way of your productivity. Although you realize the fastest way out of your dilemma is to talk about it, you’re not eager to share your unresolved issues with anyone now. Nevertheless, it’s obvious that you must step out of your comfort zone if you want to achieve peace of mind. Mohammed Ali said, “He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.”
