Retrograde activity increases this month. Events in the world slow down. Perhaps there is a feeling of malaise or a feeling of being directionless. In a way this is good. With so many planets in the Western, social half of your chart, it isn’t necessary for you to be too self-directed. Go with the flow as they say. Let others have their way, so long as it isn’t destructive. Others should come before you now, but you are finding that difficult. Your sense of your self – your self-interest – still seems very strong. But cultivate the social skills as much as possible.

The world is slowing down but things will not be boring. Two eclipses this month will see to that.

The Lunar Eclipse of the 7th occurs in your 12th house of spirituality Thus there are important changes happening here. Your attitudes change. Your spiritual practice will change. People often change teachers or teachings. Often this happens because of inner revelation – and this is a good thing. There are upheavals and shakeups in spiritual or charitable organizations you’re involved with. There are life-changing dramas in the lives of gurus and guru figures. Friends have financial dramas and need to make changes. There are dramas in the lives of uncles and aunts (or those who play this role in your life). Your financial planet Mars is affected by this eclipse. So you are forced to make important financial changes – corrections in your strategy, thinking and planning. Every Lunar Eclipse affect your children or the children figures in your life and this one is no different. They should definitely reduce their schedules and stay out of harm’s way during this period. (This eclipse occurs in their 8th house and can bring encounters with death – though not actual physical death.)

The Solar Eclipse of the 21st occurs on the cusp (border) of the 6th and 7th houses. Thus the affairs of both these houses are affected here. Job changes can happen – either within the same company or a different one. The conditions of work change. If you employ others there can be more employee turnover now. Since the eclipse planet, the Sun, is your health planet, there can be health scares. But your health is basically good, so it is not likely to be anything more than just scares. The health regime will change dramatically too. There are financial dramas in the lives of children and children figures and they will be forced to make important, dramatic changes (and they will be good). Since your 7th house is affected, love will get tested. Be more patient with the beloved at this time. Good relationships survive these things, but the flawed ones are in danger. Those of you born early in the sign of Pisces – from February 18 to February 21 – will feel this most strongly. If this applies to you, reduce your schedule and take it easy this period.
