An emotional need to make surprising and long standing changes to do what is in your best interest, where you social life and materialistic comforts are concerned, may lead you to make improvements in these areas of your life. Intuition and good sense help you to make the most appropriate choices. Caution prevents anything to drastic from taking place, but it’s vital to be open to exciting opportunities. Seeking new pastures is very alluring and there could be an awakening that is long overdue.

Sun in Pisces sextile Uranus in Taurus 25th February 2021

The Sun at 7 degrees 29 minutes Pisces is sextile Uranus at 7 degrees 29 minutes Taurus at 9.13 pm GMT 25th February 2021.

Dodging challenging events will help you to hone your skills in avoiding what is physically and emotionally taxing. Inspiration may appear to come from nowhere. Sure there are distractions that at first will seem like interesting diversions that don’t have a purpose. But this is not necessarily the case, because there will be unexpected opportunities that arrive, which will be missed if you’re not willing to follow a diversion from what is expected of you. Moving away from limitations that until now you have felt obligated to follow should be fairly easy to do. Visualise what you want to do and create your own path to travel instead of another person’s footsteps.

Now is a favourable time to actively make practical changes with the intention of evolving parts of yourself and your life that are no longer beneficial to you. This is a slow and steady process with some steep hills to climb, but it won’t be as daunting as you first anticipated. Nothing will be achieved if you’re not willing to make the effort; occasionally you may have to charge headlong, but overall a consistent use of your energy is the best way forward. The harder you work the more you will achieve. With care and perseverance, severe disruption can be kept to a minimum.

Venus in Aquarius square Mars in Taurus 19th February 2021

Venus at 23 degrees 1 minute Aquarius is square Mars at 23 degrees 1 minute Taurus at 11.04 pm GMT 19th February 2021.

Any effort to make you life more comfortable in terms of financial or materialistic resources will demand hard work and stamina; laziness won’t be rewarded. It’s possible you may have to make more effort than expected to get the rewards you seek. Stubbornness is a disadvantage right now due to the disagreements it causes. In romantic relationships, resentment caused by a lack of freedom that was enjoyed before the relationship started may cause discord, but it’s not serious enough to damage the bond that is shared between both people. For those who are single and seeking a partner; what is desired may be so unusual or a lack of commitment could be placing obstacles in the way.

Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus 17th February 2021

Saturn at 7 degrees 14 minutes Aquarius is square Uranus at 7 degrees 14 minutes Taurus at 7.07 pm GMT 17th February 2021.

Freedom is restrained by responsibilities or those in authority and there are destabilising changes that will occur. The limits in place at the moment are very frustrating and hard work; depressing for some but overall not a lot of fun. However, they are necessary to regain the liberty that was taken for granted in the past. Nothing will be as it was and tough circumstances are unavoidable. There is a time and place to rebel, unfortunately during this transit it’s not one of them. Rules can be broken but the consequences of doing that are complicated to predict.

Rapid or impulsive action is unlikely and taking the initiative is based on a combination of common sense and intuition. Be aware that what appear to be ideal opportunities may not prove to be what they seem when put into practice. Practical effort into creative endeavours will have positive and productive results. Take advantage of any chance to escape the demands of reality for a while. This can help you to build your strength up both physically and spiritually. For anyone who is involved in charity work or working for a good cause, will find their contributions provide stability and resources to those who are in desperate need of assistance.

Retrograde Mercury at 17 degrees 43 minutes Aquarius is square Mars at 17 degrees 43 minutes Taurus at 12.16 pm GMT 10th February 2021.

People could become very irritable for the strangest reasons, so tread carefully if you want to or have to be assertive. A plan of action that would normally be reliable can hit obstructions or be disrupted by glitches, which will be really frustrating. Schedules may have to be postponed or restructured to adapt to unforeseen or extraordinary events. This is a blow if the speed of progress has been slow, but once in a while disruption is necessary to speed things up a bit, no matter how demanding it will be. Also during this transit there can be an increase in delays or accidents when travelling, so be extra vigilant and prepared for the possibility not all will run smoothly.

Venus in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus 7th February 2021

Venus at 6 degrees 58 minutes Aquarius is square Uranus at 6 degrees 58 minutes Taurus at 3.33 am GMT 7th February 2021.

If the smooth running of relationships and social interactions is disrupted, alternative methods from what is usually done will have to be used. The flexibility of relationships is tested and there is the possibility they could be tested until they reach a breaking point. Current events that upset the comfort that stability provides are stressful and can be tough but can also be liberating. Erratic spending is a risk at the moment, so stay rational and keep a tight hold on your finances.

Sun in Aquarius square Mars in Taurus 1st February 2021

The Sun at 12 degrees 47 minutes Aquarius is square Taurus at 12 degrees 47 minutes Taurus at 10.34 am GMT 1st February 2021.

Prepare yourself for actions taken by others or circumstances that will try to chip away at your strength. If how you react to this provocation is out of character, the consequences could strike when you are least prepared for them. Doing things your own way conflicts with the tried and tested methods that you may be expected to follow. Choose carefully where and when to be assertive, because you may not have the physical resources available to take on every obstacle or confrontation that comes your way. If you push too hard, unnecessary stress and frustration will leave you feeling frazzled.

Sun in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus 26th January 2021

The Sun at 6 degrees 47 minutes Aquarius is square Uranus at 6 degrees 47 minutes Taurus at 12.48 pm GMT 26th January 2021.

Sudden disruption that could lead to behaviour that is out of character may have long-term consequences, so make the effort to behave as rationally as you can, even if it’s difficult to restrain yourself. Frustration with restrictions that have been dragging on will have you “straining at the leash” to find a way to break out and gain a sense of freedom. Rebelling against what is sensible and should be done because it’s stifling; any opportunity for excitement could cause trouble if rules are broken. To satisfy the need to get out of a rut, do something different to change a boring routine. You may want to be liberated from the limitations placed upon you but now is not the time.
