Retrograde activity is at its maximum for the year this month. From the 13th to the 25th half of the planets are moving backwards. Things are slowing down in the world and in your personal life. Uranus, the ruler of your Horoscope, is also retrograde – from the 3rd onwards. Things might be slow but not boring. Two eclipses this month, both of which affect you strongly, will liven things up. You need to take a more relaxed schedule anyway until the 22nd, but especially around the eclipse periods.

The Lunar Eclipse of the 7th occurs in your own sign. This impacts on your body and image. You’re forced to re-evaluate yourself, to redefine yourself, to change how you think about yourself. This is always a good thing to do, but better when it is done voluntarily. Here you seem forced into it. Over the coming months you will present a new image, a new ‘look’ to the world. The wardrobe often changes, the hairstyle and colouring – things of this nature. Since the Moon is your health planet, there could be a health scare (it will probably be no more than that) and important changes to the health regime. If you haven’t been careful in dietary matters, the eclipse can bring a detox of the body. Job changes can happen too. Since Mars is affected, students below college level make dramatic changes in their educational plans. Sometimes they change schools. There are dramas in the lives of siblings and sibling figures. Drive carefully this period.

The Solar Eclipse of the 21st is also strong in its effect on you – especially on those of you born between February 16 and February 18. It occurs on the cusp of your 7th and 8th houses and thus affects the affairs of both. So, the current relationship gets a testing. This looks like a serious testing. You go through these things twice every year, but this one is stronger than usual. Be patient with the beloved. He or she can be having personal dramas and this impacts on your relationship. This is, in many respects, a repeat of the February Solar Eclipse. The good news is that relationship issues will be clarified for the next 30 days – until the New Moon next month. The spouse, partner or current love is having financial dramas now and this could be part of the problem. Important changes have to be made. There can be encounters with death – close calls and exposures to it, either through events or dreams. This is supposed to help you come to terms with death and lose your fear of it.

Sensitive people often feel the onset of an eclipse weeks before they happen. All of you will get your ‘personal announcement’ of when you’re in the eclipse period. Something strange will happen, or you’ll hear of some strange kind of event. This is the cosmos telling you to start taking it easy.
