Dear Friend and Reader:
This is an off-week for the weekly horoscope, but Priya Kale is standing in for me on our other channels — the iPhone app and in the newspapers. Since we have the work edited and ready to go, I’m sending it out to you. This horoscope is an interpretation of the Pisces New Moon from Tuesday. I’ll be back with the Inner Space horoscope on Tuesday morning.
Note to Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces readers: I am doing birthday reports for your signs, and they should be done soon. I will have more information about availability with Tuesday’s edition, which due to various circumstances will be a Tuesday evening edition distributed evenings about 7 EST.
Note to Chiron fans in the reading audience — this week we have provided a solid foundation on Chiron in Pisces that will get you started if you’re curious (those of us born in the 1960s have this placement). The contributors to Planet Waves this week have read like a ‘who’s who’ among the most credible Chiron authors. Here is a summary of our postings so that you have them all in one place.
Monday and Tuesday we covered the Pisces New Moon in two parts; here is part one (An Age of Pisces) and here is part two (New Moon Starring Neptune and Chiron). On Tuesday we did a special mailing with a long quote by Zane Stein explaining the New Moon. On Wednesday we published the March monthly horoscope, which put Zane’s quotes into greater context. And for the past two nights on the Planet Waves daily page, we’ve covered the Sun conjunct Chiron in two articles, one featuring Adam Gainsburg and the other featuring Dale O’Brien and Melanie Reinhart.
Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope # 892, for Friday, Feb. 24, 2012 | By PRIYA KALEFor more Astrology, Horoscopes and Personal Consultations please visit Priya’s website.
Aries (March 20-April 19) — A New Moon in your 12th solar house, the one associated with the mysteries of life and what is beyond life, is drawing you ever deeper into the unknown. You may be pondering life’s bigger questions about where you’re headed. Although there will be times when not much makes sense, still there is a soul truth awakening within you. Take the time to go inward and listen to it. If you ask any successful person, they will tell you it all began with a dream. Your dreams are especially powerful now and you are worth much more than you realize. It may take a little longer for clarity to make its way to you, but trust there is a greater plan in motion even if you can’t see it yet. Your potential is truly infinite and you have more resources at your disposal than you imagine. Have faith in your dreams, and more importantly yourself and what you are working toward. You can manifest a vision that is beginning to emerge and your only job right now is to clarify what this is for yourself. Then you can take the necessary steps to reprioritize your life so you can give to what is most important to you. Rome wasn’t built in a day, but then again, neither was Hackensack. Give to a vision birthing in your soul, and you can get there one day at a time. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
Taurus (April 19-May 20) — What did you dream your life would be like when you grew up? And has life lived up to your dreams? A situation is drawing you ever further into the unknown, but through this process, you are learning what it means to authentically trust yourself. When there is doubt, I would suggest you reach for the most fiery part of yourself. The part that gets angry, or rages when it feels unheard. It will tell you something about your deepest desires or why you have felt disillusioned before. Then you can let go of false ideas that have clouded your vision in the past, putting you back in touch with your reality. Your ideals some would say are rather unrealistic and untouchable at times. But still you know your abilities and potential and what you are capable of manifesting when you put your mind, heart and soul into it. If at anytime you feel lost, speak to someone you can trust implicitly with your soul. There are friends on hand, who’ve proven their worth to you and who can offer sage advice to a dilemma. Above all have faith in yourself and you can get closer to creating the life you’ve always dreamed of, offering you the freedom you need to be wholly yourself. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
Gemini (May 20-June 21) — An extraordinary New Moon in the angle of your chart associated with career and reputation is setting you on a journey of discovering your dream mission in life. You may feel like a goal you have is rather elusive. But rather than set your sights on success, go deeper to investigate what feels good to you in your soul. If you chase your 15 minutes of fame, you will likely get it, but then be disappointed. Clarify your ambitions and consciously let go of illusions of success or superficial, shallow ambitions, ideals of glamor or maintaining some kind of public image. Then you can sharpen a vision and focus your energy on a goal that truly has substance beyond what is currently apparent. This is also something that can have a greater real impact than you imagine, and this New Moon is bringing you a sense of this. You have benevolent support for your most soulful ambitions, and even from partners who may seem distant or too far to reach. But ultimately you are the captain of your ship and only you can decide what is worth your energy. You may have had your fair share of disappointment and what you consider to be “failure.” But these have all been a process of learning, and you don’t need to let your past stand in the way of who you are becoming. As long as you are anchored in self-awareness you can chart your course and navigate your way toward the success you’ve dreamed of. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Pisces is the sign in your chart associated with faith and with long journeys. A New Moon in this house is setting your sails on a journey likely to take you across the oceans, be they metaphorical or literal oceans. This is a spiritual quest unlike few others in your lifetime, leading you to places you may only have dreamed of or that you didn’t even know existed. Whether this is literally or metaphorically, think of yourself as an explorer on a quest for a higher sublime truth. What you need to take with you now is an open mind, a sense of perspective and a philosophical approach on all that is emerging which will allow you to absorb a greater truth, elevating and expanding your consciousness; this will act as a beacon of light and wisdom leading your way forward. Enter this phase with the curiosity of a child without preconceived notions of what you might find. As long as you are willing to explore your ambitions, you will discover abilities within you that you didn’t even know you had. You can also trust you have and will make friends along the way, who are supportive of you and above all keep faith in a higher power that guides you. You are being liberated and if you could go anywhere, where would it be? This much freedom can be scary, but it is also empowering if you remember that ultimately your journey is your destination. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Deep surrender within a sexual or financial relationship is what the planets are calling for now. Yet this may be a situation in which you feel powerless, as if you’re swimming through shark-infested waters. Really it’s much better than that — the things swimming around are actually dolphins. There is wise counsel on hand now that can help you navigate your situation and what may currently feel like the dark night of your soul. But to trust that, you have to be willing to trust yourself and the experiences life is offering you. Your success and the gifts you have to offer this world are a direct result of your life experiences — so be grateful for these. You can lie to the world, but you can’t lie to yourself. And if you chase money, shallow desires, or try to hide from the truth, you will end up being disappointed. Seek and offer transparency, and most importantly be honest with yourself. Then you can decide the advice you want to take on board and the relationships that are worth going deeper within. Situations don’t make or break you; they simply reveal you and you can trust a situation is evolving. You have a chance to rebirth yourself now, and change the course of your future as you re-emerge with a true awareness of who you are at your core — an eternal being on a mortal journey. Keep the faith. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — Celestial activity in Pisces spells a new start for your relationships, and one relationship in particular. But who is it that has you under their spell now? And can you trust going deeper within a connection that seems almost too good to be true? The key here is definitely for you to trust your own instincts rather than idolize another or put people on pedestals, which will surely leave you feeling disillusioned when you discover their humanity. It would help if you took off the rose-tinted or dark glasses. View a situation with clarity and discernment, rather than project suspicion or elevated optimism. A situation is promising but be wise, keep your eyes on the long-term, encourage honesty and you will see the truth. This calls for your skills of negotiation rather than defensiveness or feeling like you have to keep your guard up. Also maintain awareness of your values, boundaries and keep a sense of perspective on what is emerging. Then you can be guided toward making the kind of connections you trust, that touch your soul deeply, and expand your world as you make your way to the top. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — As much as it may have been your experience lately — life need not be an endless struggle swimming upstream. Although you may have your doubts about something, there is no reason for you to project them on everyone you meet. Keep a healthy frame of mind and you can be blessed with intuitive insights. Then you can find fresh solutions to any situation at work or in your life that have gotten a little stagnant. Although change may have been slow in coming, you can trust this is the solid kind of change you’ve been hoping for. You have more support than you currently realize and even a relationship that once left you feeling high and dry has greater potential to offer you. Look for opportunities and you will find them. The possibilities are truly endless. A New Moon in your 6th solar house is bringing you closer to living the kind of life you’ve always dreamed of. But this will require your active participation in life and its process. Where there is doubt, dip your toes in life and test the waters, then you can decide the direction you would like to turn in. What matters is that you live a life that is deep and fulfills from your soul, right down to your toes. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — A New Moon in your 5th solar house — the house connected with taking chances, and with pleasure — is asking you to dive into your heart to discover the magic lurking in there. This may feel like a huge risk, but neither love nor creativity ever came without its risks. And in truth you have more to gain than anything you fear losing. Creatively, sexually and romantically this is a renaissance, allowing you to rediscover yourself like no other time in your life. A partner is with you every step of the way and the more you can let go of your fantasies or illusions of love, the more you are likely to discover this is indeed the real thing. A relationship has more to teach you about yourself and life in general than you realize. And the more you are able to dissolve your fears, the more you will see the relationships that you can trust and have time and again proven their worth to you. Be honest with yourself and you can emerge refreshed, renewed and healed, ready to face a new day, creating your experiences of life daily. You may not be able to bottle something up and hold on to it forever. Life was meant to be lived and in truth — all you have is now. If you can surrender to how you feel in the moment — this is the kind of sublime experience that will last for eternity. As the Beatles sang, “In the end the love you take, is equal to the love you make.” Dare to dive deep. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — You may fear you’ve hit rock bottom with a situation that threatens your sense of emotional or financial security. But a New Moon in the angle of your chart connected to security, and your home base, suggests no matter where you’ve felt out of your depth, there is opportunity knocking on your door. It may call for persistent work on your part but you aren’t looking for a quick fix. More to the point, the situation calls for having faith in yourself. As long as you keep a healthy level of discernment, you can rise above your insecurities to see what you can do to work your way out of a situation. Then even if change is slow, it will be lasting. Be honest about the situations and relationships that drain on your health, energy and resources. You don’t need to feel defensive, but do negotiate boundaries that help you feel safer within your connections. Your family and those you consider your family (even if all they offer is emotional support), are a bottomless well you can drink deeply from — allowing you to rejuvenate your spirit as you gather strength to greet another day. Above all, trust you’re being buoyed by a divine force and what is emerging is a lesson in learning your spiritual depth — which is endless. Have faith that as long as you are committed to living your best life daily, you can invite in the greater flow of financial and emotional support you need. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — Can you trust what someone is saying to you? And can you trust yourself? You may not be sure quite what or whom to believe at the moment. But a New Moon in your 3rd solar house, the one associated with communications and your community, suggests where you are willing to clear your mind of preconceived notions, clarity will come. Our thoughts and opinions are much like ripples in a pond that distort our ability to see reality for what it is. Avoid any temptation to gloss over the truth. Also be conscious of how much of what you believe is subconsciously influenced by your mother’s ideas of the world. The more you can be honest with yourself, even if it is painful to do so, the easier it will be to express yourself to others gently and compassionately. And you will find others can handle it pretty well. In a relationship, or conversations with partners — speak and listen with your heart. It hears and sees things your ears and eyes do not. And your heart is dependable, wise and will guide you toward unveiling the underlying reality of any situation. Then you can see the potential that exists, allowing you to create a vision into a solid reality. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — Recent events may have been eroding your faith and sense of security, but don’t be in a rush to fill a void. Essentially this boils down to a question of self-worth and self-esteem. A New Moon in your 2nd solar house (self-esteem and personal resources) marks a new cycle and period of growth for you financially, as well as within your deepest personal commitments. But rather than worry about what you mean to others, or whether you can ever have the material security you dream of — go deeper below the surface to clear space for what truly makes you feel safe beyond surface desires. Your family and support system have a lot to offer you, and you are indeed standing on solid ground. The more you recognize this, the more you can rise above the insecurities or superficial needs that so often lead you to doubt your worth. Also, your mother’s values may or may not be your own, but unless you become conscious of them you won’t recognize the difference. Gain clarity about what is most meaningful to you and you can attract the flow of abundance you seek. Pour your energy into the kind of commitments that mean the most to you and you’ll evolve a little bit every day as you move through the ebbs and flows of life. What you gain through this process will go way beyond just the tangible; it has an indescribable quality. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — Neptune, the modern planet that rules Pisces (the traditional ruler is Jupiter), recently entered your sign, and the New Moon this week marks the kick-off to this period of personal renaissance. You are rebirthing in a profound way, and what emerges in this process may at times have you rubbing your eyes in disbelief. As long as you don’t get big-headed about this and in no delusion of what you came to this planet to accomplish, you can indeed achieve what some might call miraculous and impossible. You have big ideas, and they have every chance of coming to fruition. Yet you also need a deep sense of self-awareness rather than any need to maintain a self-image. Go deeper below the surface, to ask yourself who you are and consciously dissolve any false sense of identity. You are a limitless creature with boundless potential. But while here on this planet, you are mortal and human with one life to live — so what are the experiences you choose? The possibilities are indeed endless, it’s necessary that you choose wisely, which means consciously, based on what you most want to bring to being. Your mission will require focus and commitment to what works for the greatest good, rather than any purely self-serving purpose. Therein lies the key to your success. That, and: above all, to thine own self be true. — By Priya Kale for Planet Waves
