Your Milky Way Horoscope Feb. 12-18, 2012
By Milky Way Maid
The asteroid Pallas Athena enters Pisces at 12:05 am Sunday, Feb. 12. Pallas is not really comfortable in such a feeling, spiritual sign like Pisces. Pisceans may be quite stressed and torn between the influence of Neptune in their sign (bringing out latent spiritual and humanitarian values) and the very practical, very self-controlled Pallas. Pallas might allow herself to respond to music, and that is about it for her. Pallas remains in Pisces until about mid-May, then the Neptune influence can begin to express itself more freely and openly.
The Sun enters Pisces at 1:18 am Sunday, Feb. 19. Happy birthday to all the Fishes! People with the Sun in Pisces tend to be impressionable and/or psychic. Pisceans are probably best at manifesting their inner world onto the outer world; if their inner life is a shambles, that is what they manifest, and the same hold true if their inner life is serene and creative. Its natural ruler Neptune enters this sign in February, a spiritual influence that many of us might resist to no avail.
Mercury trines Saturn at 29 degrees Libra at 1:44 pm Monday. Serious talk, serious mood and serious work. No one is in a mood for the idle chatter by the coffee machine after lunch. That’s OK, maybe we can all catch up on everything in the in-box today.
Mercury also enters Pisces, at 8:38 pm Monday. Mercury in Pisces accents the creative imagination. Pisceans are good at learning by osmosis, seeming to just pick it up from the air. They know some things intuitively without knowing how they know it. Yet these people can absorb too much tension from their surroundings and become ill, even mentally overtaxed to the point of physical breakdown from too much work or stress. Needs a creative outlet. Famous people with Mercury here include Adelina Patti, Leontyne Price, Victor Hugo, Abraham Lincoln, Sidney Poitier and Robert Frost.
Venus in Aries squares Pluto at 8 degrees Capricorn at 1:32 pm Wednesday. Venus-Pluto squares have a lot to do with romantic obsession. Persons affected by this aspect tend to try too hard to control a relationship and don’t give it room to grow. And you know that livings things that don’t grow tend to start dying on the vine. So think about it.
The Sun trines Saturn at 29 degrees Libra at 11:02 am Saturday. People affected by this aspect may be called on to manage the details, to organize and plan. Responsibility (Saturn) may be thrust upon you. You may even receive honors or awards, which is also Saturn. Saturn rules science, so you will tend to be more methodical and logical.
