“Now, it’s true that some of the protesters are oddly dressed or have silly-sounding slogans, which is inevitable given the open character of the events. But so what? I, at least, am a lot more offended by the sight of exquisitely tailored plutocrats, who owe their continued wealth to government guarantees, whining that President Obama has said mean things about them, than I am by the sight of ragtag young people denouncing consumerism.”
— Paul Krugman

If Your Birthday is Feb. 28
(The Day of Zest) | Pisces Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You must work for what you want, though don’t overdo it. Know when to back away and take care of yourself, and when you need to ramp up your efforts to accomplish something special. Work is a form of therapy for you. It’s one of the main ways that you discover who you are, on an ongoing basis. Make sure your efforts feed you as much as you feed them.
|Current Pisces Weekly Horoscope
It’s your birthday season, and many planets have joined the party. Among others, Venus and Mercury are in your sign, which bestow a natural charm and ease of communication. You can say less rather than say more.
|Current Pisces Monthly Horoscope
You’re probably getting the message to up your game on the financial front, though the first thing to remember about finances is that they’re connected to everything. In astrology there are two houses connected to the money that you earn.
Written in the Planets
If you’re like most people, something only feels like a sacrifice if you don’t really want to do it, or if you don’t really value it, or if it truly takes more out of you than you have to give to it. Devotion often goes unacknowledged by the person exhibiting it, because they’re just doing what feels right — what they’re doing lights them up. That’s the sensation you’re looking for today, as Mercury in Pisces makes a square to Vesta and Mars in Sagittarius. Mercury might be the planet of mind, but with Pisces and Sagittarius involved, ‘intuition’ or ‘spirit’ seems like a more likely conduit for this realization than ‘regular’ thought. At the same time, frustration from having to sacrifice your time, energy or ideals for something you don’t value needs to find a constructive outlet; the more proactive you can be about communicating with those who can help you make some changes, the more likely you’ll be to let off some internal pressure and find a workable way forward.
