Your Milky Way Horoscope Feb. 19-25, 2012
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun enters Pisces, the Fish at 1:18 am Sunday. Pisces natives tend to fit in anywhere, since they soak up the atmosphere around them and readily adapt. The negative Pisces tries to be all things to all people, losing their real identity and sapping their strength. The positive Pisces is able to uplift and inspire others, while addressing their practical concerns. Pisces can be so observant of subtle clues that others suspect them of being psychic. Famous Sun-Pisces include the late Elizabeth Taylor, John Steinbeck, Jackie Gleason, Victor Hugo, Copernicus, Chopin, George Washington, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Earl Warren, Sidney Poitier, Edward Albee, George Harrison, Rudolph Nureyev, Pierre Renoir, and Pope Pius XII.
The Sun is conjunct Neptune in Pisces at 3:41 pm Sunday. A Sun-Neptune conjunction is not favorable for most things. Don’t make any important decisions, be careful what you believe or read or hear, and don’t go on any binges. You may be in a self-pitying mood, or may totally mistake your role in life or in an organization. Depending on whether this is conjunct any natal planets, one may be much more sensitive to drugs, chemical fumes, or toxins of any kind. You may feel like cocooning for a time, and that is OK, but do contact friends just so they know you’re alive.
Tuesday’s New Moon is at 5:35 pm in Pisces, and marks Mardi Gras. The Sun is conjunct Neptune, Chiron and Pallas, squares Juno in Sag, and a sextile to Jupiter in Taurus. These conjunctions are not very favorable for Pisces natives, who should be extra prudent this month. Hire someone else to get up on the roof, etc.
Mercury in Pisces is opposite Mars in Virgo at 6:25 am Thursday. Mercury-Mars aspects tend to produce accidents due to suppressed anger, arguments, and haste. So everybody just take a breath and slow down during the morning commute, OK?
Vesta enters Aries at 2:05 pm Saturday, where it remains until May. Vesta in the sign of the Ram is a real leader of religious or humanitarian movements, with a strong desire to improve the lot of humanity.
