This Mercury retrograde has been more like a wait-and-see game where information comes fast and slow. The follow-up process is even slower than usual, leaving you in suspense. A bit of patience and respect is required, as things will unravel faster after the 21st of this week. What have you done for yourself lately? Did you treat yourself to something you love or enjoy? What type of physical workout or regimen did you start to release to remain calm? Why exhaust yourself when you can recondition your mind and redirect your energy to something more beneficial, like clearing out your space, studying, and clearing out a room in the home or workplace. Take care of self first. Your health is your wealth. “He who has a way to live can bear almost any how.” Friedrich Nietzsche

Capricorn: When your heart and mind are in sync, focus on taking your ideas to draw a complete outline vision of the blueprint. Now that you have a picture, it’s time to start working towards the next step to see your vision develop in due time. Although your energy will produce money from inspiration, keep in mind the potential of random surprises coming your way, or working with folks in the community or higher-ups interested in your services. Also, resolve matters at home, work, as well as in your relationships. The result is to release any unwanted obstacles to start leaving room for growth and opportunity. “Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.” Dalai Lama

Aquarius: People will inform you of many ideas and plans, or even whether they can do a favor for you to try to enhance areas of yourself, your business projects, etc. Be sure to keep your eyes and ears on the details, along with a bit of research into information that can be useful in your adventures. It’s about coming up with a new creative experience, even down to the smallest details. Have a mental vision in your mind and see if others share the same vision as you. Each human being on this earth has unique and special talents and skills that are useful to the world or community. “Lost time is never found again.” Benjamin Franklin

Pisces: Working on your program is much more beneficial than working with someone else’s. It’s one thing to work collectively, or are you taking orders from others that make you feel separate or less than human? I know your feelings, but don’t disrespect yourself by limiting your boundaries or allowing people to walk over you. Think for yourself, or someone will gladly try to do so. Make your way in life. Look deep inside your heart and soul to see what your talents, skills and abilities are. Ask yourself what comes naturally to you for the best results this week. “He that respects himself is safe from others.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Aries: Show the best side of yourself, walk the talk and show love to be productive, and keep disappointments in your affairs to the bare minimum. What do you want someone else to do for you? Must you first do it for yourself? This week, practice what and how you want others to help you. That way, you’ll have hands-on as well as first-hand experience. After you do so, ask yourself how does it feel? What did your experience also add to your strengths and weaknesses? “Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Taurus: The energy this week and the month’s balance are similar to fine-tuning, as the calming sound of water. This subtle stream of water representing a more subtle sound of experience flows as you travel on your journey. You’re as big or as good as those great moments and events shaping you into becoming the person you are. Good things, as a result, should be going in sync and harmony with your plans. Listen to the water more in-depth, like picking up a shell on the beach or the water you hear from your home residence. Until you walk along through the waters, you’ll never know how terrific it feels or sounds. “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” Robert Frost

Gemini: When you’re immune to your environment, nothing should upset you because you know how things are likely to turn out. Conflict with in-laws, family, siblings, neighbors and related matters may all be part of suspense in the air. How do you respond to changes in the energy? Or do you go along with blaming others? Instead, hear what the other person has to say. Every day you rise in the morning to make improvements in your life by focusing. Find the time to enhance yourself by sending out good vibes. Also, allow your creativity to spark and motivate you on your daily mission. “It is the province of knowledge to speak, and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen.” Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.

Cancer: Do you have an urgency to travel, connect with family and relatives, and share information that can be useful? Are you looking for ways to enrich yourself and share your knowledge that may be teaching you a different experience? Be inspired to inspire others in the process. The lessons of mentorship are a great feeling, especially when you learn from the student. That makes it even more exciting. “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” Nelson Mandela

Leo: Did someone say to water the plants, fix things in the home, or release yourself to have a moment to self? It’s time to water your seeds and review the details before submitting the final product. Are you thinking about relocating? Or is it a matter of meeting new people or due to a lack of information where things appear uncertain? As Mercury goes direct February 20, things will begin to become more transparent and prosperous in the last week of the month. So get your act together now for the positive overflow coming your way. “Singleness of purpose is one of the chief essentials for success in life, no matter what may be one’s aim.” John D. Rockefeller

Virgo: Did you take a double look in the mirror to see yourself glistening? Your mind, body and soul are elevating your aura like a bright light. As you go about your week, you wonder why everybody’s looking at you. People are magnetized to you due to the natural light you possess. Your energy is so radiant and magnetic you may effortlessly spark excitement in others when people see you. You should feel like a pillar to your community, shining brightly on others to raise their consciousness and frequency. “The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.” Mark Twain

Libra: The things that people do or say, even over the phone, and how they say them, may at that moment take you off guard. You are leaving yourself to ask the question of how you did that or what you think. You may even feel discombobulated for a minute; as the research and realization of your actions set in, you may sense an epiphany manifesting itself right in front of you. And everything you thought you knew, it all clicks. Need I say more? “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Aristotle

Scorpio: What’s it going to be? Them or you! Sometimes taking a risk to stand up for yourself shows courage and determination. Do something you’re not comfortable doing. Stand up for yourself and do what’s right. At the same time, it’s what you know while knowing what you don’t know. That’s the sign from inside delivering you the message to take a stand or at least research the information before making a decision. Following protocol allows others to sense your intentions without you knowing their plan. That doesn’t sound fair at all. Go with the feeling, as it has never steered you in the wrong direction. “There are many ways of going forward but only one way of standing still.” Franklin D. Roosevelt

Sagittarius: The awkwardness of how information, people, places and things are displayed or addressed can throw you for a loop. It’s all how you view the information, similar to the matrix. What you see is real, or do you have to look beyond to find the origin. It’s all about your perspective and growth; while going down the rabbit hole, you will find more exciting things than what you came to discover. Keep thinking long-term. “When a thing is done, it’s done. Don’t look back. Look forward to your next objective.” George C. Marshall
