The Stars This Week: February 18-24, 2013
Time to Review!

While your dreams and goals may begin to take shape this week, forward progress is halted for the time being. Indeed, the road ahead is no longer clear as the Sun enters Pisces on February 18 before conjuncting Neptune on February 20. However, you stand a good chance of finding success if you can regroup once Saturn turns retrograde on February 18 and Mercury turns retrograde on February 23.

As the Sun enters the most sensitive sign of the zodiac and conjuncts spiritual Neptune -- all within two days of one another -- it's time to focus on the larger issues of your life. Turn away from distractions and direct your attention inward. Meditate, start a dream journal, or spend time in nature. Once all the noise is gone, you'll be able to determine what you truly want to do. This is the time to pay attention to your intuition and tune into your soul's desires.

February 18: Saturn turns retrograde
Saturn, the planet that describes how you structure your life, entered Scorpio last October 5 for the first time in 28 years. Now, Saturn turns retrograde in this intense Water sign, and it's time for you to gauge how far you've come in the last four-plus months. You may have tackled a new project, moved to a new location, or started a new relationship. Take time to review until July 8, when Saturn turns direct. Work on improving your circumstances and let go of anything that's no longer good for you or working properly. Saturn's transit through Scorpio can empower you to create a solid foundation for your goals and ambitions!

February 23: Mercury turns retrograde
As Mercury turns retrograde in imaginative Pisces, you'll want to revisit old ideas and previous contacts. Be open to making changes and reconsidering your plans. Consider the pros and cons of everything, since you'll surely notice that your mind isn't settling on anything for certain. If possible, avoid buying communication-related products such as computers and phones; if you do, be certain that you keep your receipts. If you're traveling, double-check your reservations and bring a good book to read in case you're delayed. If you know the house(s) in your natal chart through which Mercury is traveling, apply this review to those areas of your life. And of course, try to defer major decision-making until Mercury turns direct on March 17, for the messenger planet's retrograde periods are infamous for people making mistakes!
