The Chinese New Year, on February 19th, begins the year of the Goat (Sheep or Ram).
Gong Hay Fat Choi – Happy New Year!
Solar energy enters this compassionate, intuitive, emotional Water sign making the next few weeks a good time for our imagination to shine. Piscean characteristics are heightened, meaning the subconscious is very important. It can be great for anyone associated with the arts – new ideas for music, dance, writing might push to the surface faster than usual. Pay attention to your dreams (take notes) but remember to stay grounded and connected. Over sensitivity to adverse energy or vibrations is no excuse to drift away from reality. Be productive, be creative.
The 12th sign of the Zodiac’s planet ruler, mystical Neptune, transits the sign until 2025. We will probably notice the influences of this outer planet somewhere in our chart. Neptune has a reputation for clouding the water, fading boundaries, and fostering escapism, but, the things that make life unsettled can also enhance creativity and imagination. Use the best of it.
World peace has to start somewhere, so tap into the sympathy / empathy that Pisces is known for and spread kindness among family and friends. Use clear judgment while offering assistance where it is genuinely needed.
As always, those most affected have the Sun and/or Ascendant in the specified sign.

Saturday’s Libra Moon, February 7, 2015, could be the start of a weekend full of relationship possibilities – personal or business. The 7th sign of the Zodiac, is ruled by the romantic, beautifying planet Venus. With the “scale of justice” as its Astrology symbol, no surprise that cooperation and harmony are important. (Persuade someone over to your point-of-view? Find a compromise?)
Air sign Libra also fosters artistic expression, creativity, wanting to be with people and just generally expecting, and accepting, good times.
Be charming, be social – make it a beautiful weekend!
Tuesday’s Full Moon, 2/3/15, will be in dramatic, Fire sign Leo – no better way to heat up, perk up a long winter! A “Full” phase intensifies the traits of the sign it is visiting and with Sun ruled Leo, (its Zodiac symbol is the glorious Lion, King of the jungle) we feel generous, creative and get the urge to flame and sparkle while flitting across the world stage. (“Look at me!”).
So take that spotlight, wear some regal purple, be royally magnanimous to your subjects (friends and family) and have a great time. Also, use the Full Moon’s energy to finish projects begun at the time of the last New Moon (1/20/15). Its considered a fortunate time to complete things and it will last for about 10 days even as the Moon moves into practical Virgo on Wednesday.
