If Your Birthday is Feb. 25
(The Day of the Higher Cause) | Pisces Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
As your instincts and overall sensitivity get a boost later today or tonight, remind yourself to take a broad view of any situation you meet. It might seem like there’s only one very narrowly defined way to make a particular relationship work. But is that really true? Probably not. The planets are currently emphasizing your visionary potential. Put it to use, and see if you can imagine a more creative way of relating.
Written in the Planets
Today Mercury enters Pisces, followed by the Moon overnight into Sunday. That will temporarily make eight planets and points in Pisces as we approach Sunday’s Pisces New Moon and partial solar eclipse. Have you been taking your swimming lessons these last couple weeks since the lunar eclipse? Clearly there’s a suggestion here to go with the flow. But that does not mean abandoning all authority over your life, or your responsibility for making choices. You have some ability to direct the flow, which is not the same as trying to push the river or forcing your will. Pay careful attention to what your environment is offering you in terms of options, and notice how they mesh with your desires — even if only tangentially. Look where you want to be, and you may find it easier to ride the currents.
