Cosmic Gossip and Astrology Forecast for February 2010

By Linda Merlino

AQUARIUS is inventive, a genius at the core. Often described as the different drummer, Aquarius is ahead of our times, always seeing into the future, a visionary. Aware of the whole and not just the parts of a situation, Aquarius believes in one for all. Integrity is a strong characteristic. Aquarius follows the rules but knows when to bend them enough to allow for the unexpected to occur.

Aquarius is always a friend, above all else. Even when you are lovers or mates no more, Aquarius will seek to remain your friend. Often times a friendship will begin and eventually finds its way to love with an Aquarian. The way to the heart of Aquarius is through respect, honesty and good conversation. Only a good friend will truly accept you for what you are and those are the ground rules for an Aquarius in love.

If you love an Aquarius, prepare for an exciting journey. You have chosen a partner who will never be dull. His or her quirks and sudden left turns are part of the package. Treat these moments as exciting deviations from the norm, a way to gain progress. Fortunate mates of this eccentric sign get to live committed bliss with someone who could crash through the ceiling at any time and take random flights to touch the moon's face. If you can live without a rigid lifestyle, you can find happiness with Aquarius. This lover will always be true, as Aquarius loves only once in his or her lifetime. If you are the lucky one and only, count your Valentine blessings.

Sky watch: Mars is still retrograde until mid-March. This creates opportunities to recover from past efforts that were not successful or put aside. Return to places you have visited and complete tasks abandoned. We are all tired, Mars backward drains our energy, making it seem twice as difficult to complete tasks.

ARIES (March 21-April 20) Aries has so much going on behind the scenes. Perhaps you have a great idea about how to make money, or increase income. If so, do not be discouraged if plans seem delayed. Continue making a plan. Cosmic Advice: You have friends who may be out-of-sight but never out-of-mind. See what you can do to change that old cliché. Take the opportunity to track down some of your favorite folk. Love prefers the clandestine or to remain in your head.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20) Taurus may find the company of females a comfort this month. Look to women friends for enjoyment. Since you are verbal this month regarding your career, be mindful of how important these female connections can be for your future. Cosmic Advice: The tug of personal life versus public life is very apparent on a daily basis. This can lead to confrontation if you let it. Love comes through a friendship.

GEMINI (May 20-June 21) Gemini you have the good fortune to be entertaining Lady Luck in your public life. Profession and career get a boost from her presence. You should gain the respect you deserve, maybe gain financially as well. Cosmic Advice: The opportunity to travel with a sibling or someone younger than you might arise. Travel by sea or over water is possible, or maybe a location of the rich and famous. Love comes in unexpected ways, making itself known at every level.

CANCER (June 22-July 22) Cancer continues his or dramatic cleanup of finances. You ask, do I need to pay for this or that, and with a broad sweep remove unwanted expenses. You may find yourself advocating for others in this financial housekeeping by encouraging those who are more reluctant to follow the leader. Cosmic Advice: Travel plays a key role in your life for the next year. All of the experiences whether real or imaginary have a profound effect on your point-of-view and your beliefs. Love can find you if it carries a suitcase.

LEO (July 23-August 22) Leo feels tired and may take naps during the day. You cannot hide this propensity to close your eyes. Someone is bound to catch you snoozing. This will not last into April. Do not be discouraged with yourself; affirmative action is required in these months of a backward Mars. Return to a past project and complete it. You are approaching a time of finalizing. Cosmic Advice: You must listen well in partnerships, there could be questions going unanswered. Love and money are so explicitly connected. You can have both, make wise choices.

VIRGO (August 23-September 22) Virgo holds back so much during this retrograde of Mars. This is an excellent time to clean out drawers and closets. This is dramatic organization; you are bagging clothes and the like with gusto. Speak to co-workers or folk who understand what you need to do on a daily basis to feel well. Health is always a topic of conversation for Virgo and there are questions you hesitate to ask. First, do research. Cosmic Advice: You can expect love to shine when you are with one special person. Partnerships can be very beneficial this year.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) Libra can go in search of old friends for comfort. Friendships from the past sometimes bring the much-needed cure. You can communicate best with young people, even when they do not completely understand; children work with you. Cosmic Advice: What about love for Libra? You of all the signs are best suited for partnership. What and whom you love comes connected to health, your daily work, chores etc. Perhaps the most ordinary person could be extraordinary if you let him or her in.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) Scorpio may experience the return of career opportunities. Dramatic delays can halt progress for even the most promising prospects. You may find that returning to old material works best. Your voice is needed at home. Your personal life is asking you to speak up. Balancing home and career is an ongoing battle. Cosmic Advice: Love is a gamble; take a chance.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21) Sagittarius may make plans to return to a place once visited. The challenge is to make the trip a new experience. Shake up all your possibilities and create an interesting itinerary. Communication has its boundaries. No one other than you and those close by need to hear what is on your mind. There is no need to pull out the soapbox. Cosmic Advice: Love is all around. Your personal life should reflect an abundance of good feelings and good fortune. Have you thought about buying or selling real estate? Think on it.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19) Capricorn has all the tax stuff spread out on the dining room table already. What is yours will also be counted with his or hers. Send those completed forms out after mid-March. No need for mistakes. Money comes and goes as usual. Cosmic Advice: Communicate your suggestions about how your resources can grow. Your good fortune lies among siblings, community and neighbors. You can grow with their help. Love is close by.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) Aquarius is able to communicate well. You can speak your own language, and since you talk of the future, more folks will listen. The delays have been due to balancing partnerships. Trying to be flexible is sometimes difficult. Although you are regarded as laid back, often that reputation is a hardship. Aquarius discovered stress. Cosmic Advice: Love is how you spend money. One person deserves a Valentine from you...cha-ching.

PISCES (February 19-March 20) Pisces remains on the health watch list. Tired fish cannot swim. Do not push to accomplish tasks that can be done later. Give yourself the space needed to be well. There is gossip behind the scenes or maybe a secret well kept. Cosmic Advice: You have Lady Luck as a passenger; welcome her with a warm embrace. She is staying for a year. Lucky you. Love is there with her. Double lucky.
