Planetary Currents
- February 1999 -

ebruary opens with four planets in innovative Aquarius. Lots of unique energy available for manifesting your desires. The New Moon in Aquarius on Feb. 15, electrifies as a powerful Solar Eclipse. Time to initiate much needed change, especially in areas of friendship and group associations. The Sun enters dreamy Pisces on Feb. 18, an auspicious time to write your wish list. Jupiter in pioneering Aries (for the first time since 1987), calls for risk-taking and an adventurous spirit. Dashing Mars is in Scorpio, the sign most often associated with amorous maneuvers, so expect this Valentine's Day to sizzle. Since one of my specialties is relationship compatibility and Valentine's Day is Feb. 14, the Relationship Queen will share her secrets on what each sign looks for in a relationship. If you know your rising sign, please read that too.

Aries-Increased communication and socializing are the order of the day, especially where affairs of the heart are concerned. Prepare to feel optimistic and outgoing as Jupiter, the plant of expansion, enters your spontaneous sign on the twelfth. Venus, goddess of love and beauty, enters assertive Aries on the twenty first.
