If Your Birthday is Feb. 28
(The Day of Zest) | Pisces Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
In one sense, you’re likely feeling either very idealistic and optimistic or else quite mystified and confused. Whichever is true for you, chances are good the sensation is linked to your ability to articulate where you are with regard to healing a particularly long-standing issue. This issue looks like it relates to transgressed boundaries — whether in this life, in past lives, or in the lives of your ancestors. Those boundaries might have been emotional, energetic, psychic, sexual, creative or all of the above. Both confusion and optimism can work equally well as starting points for seeking the help you need for your next phase of self-discovery and karmic release. After all: you can only ever start where you are.
Written in the Planets
Today the Moon enters Aries. This adds to the impulsive energy that may have peaked over the weekend. You certainly can use this to begin moving ahead with projects that demanded your attention while between eclipses, as well as anything new that has popped up since Sunday. At the same time, if you’ve recently experienced anything that made you wonder if Mercury was retrograde (it’s not) — such as incomplete communication, bungled travel or errors in judgment — you’re feeling the downside of Mars-Uranus-Eris. On top of that, the Sun and Neptune have been conspiring to fog matters over, though you might not have realized it. Bottom line: take your time with plans, decisions and the new steps you’re rearin’ to make. You can still move forward — ideally at a pace that allows you to notice what you’d otherwise skip.
