Hidden Insights: Astrology for the week of 24 February 2019

After two intense weeks, Hidden Insights is happy to announce a much calmer astrological sky. A set of harmonious sextiles promises to improve our interpersonal relationships. The week begins with Mercury forming a sextile with Venus, which wraps the Earth with warm concern for others. On Monday and Tuesday agreement will be easy, and conversations will have a cheerful tone. As Venus is still in Capricorn, this is also an excellent time for discussions related to money and investments. While this is usually a challenging topic for many, these types of conversations will flow easily.

On Wednesday the Sun makes the second sextile of the week to Mars. This aspect enhances courage, and reduces fear. It is also a time for friendly competition, where egos won’t get the best of us. Even in heated discussions, participants will be conscious not to provoke or offend others. Anticipate a day filled with honest communication, a renewed sense of drive in business matters, along with the ability to receive credit for hard work.

Friday and Saturday usher in two electrifying transits. First, Venus will make an active square to Uranus. This allows people to express their eccentric sides more openly and without judgement. It also brings an urge to initiate new experiences, and many around the world will embrace the “you only live once” attitude. The challenge with this aspect is sometimes the impractical nature of its energy. Venus loves to indulge, and if it is not treated carefully with Uranus, a series of impulse purchases can spell trouble. Especially as anything purchased on Friday will likely no longer seem interesting or useful by the end of the weekend.

The second transit of the weekend is Venus’ movement out of Capricorn and into Aquarius. In this sign, Venus allows the world to love in a non-judgmental way. This is a great position for those who feel like social outcasts to take the centre stage of acceptance. We can expect the next several weeks to bring a renewed focus to global acceptance of what makes each of us unique. As Venus is the planet of love, romantic relationships also shift slightly, as we move away from the practical energy towards the expansive. In Capricorn, rules within relationships became important; now freedom of expression, and experimental relationships become the focus.

This week’s homework assignment focuses on the shift of Venus into Aquarius. There is an element healing with this position as we move from the concrete energy of Capricorn. Aquarius energy rules acceptance and the ability to see the big picture.

Over the weekend, allow yourself to accept and forgive those who have hurt you in the past, especially if you still hold strong feelings. At its best, this energy can help alleviate the pain of obsession, which can assist those dealing with this type of preoccupation to move on.

Your career and reputation take centre stage this week, Aries. On Monday and Tuesday you may find yourself listening to the problems of a supervisor or person in a position of power. The caring energy of the day allows you to be still and provide valuable insight. This encounter leads you to question your direction, and you may have a moment of exciting clarity about where you see yourself in the future. This is an excellent time to set a new course for success in the public eye in order to become recognized for your skills and accomplishments. You get a financial boost on Wednesday, as the Sun aligns with Mars, which moves through your house of money. Don’t miss the opportunity to make extra money right now. Even if it’s selling items around your home that you no longer find useful. The weekend brings friends into your immediate environment. Expect to be busy
socially with groups of people, and take the opportunity to join a club or organization.

Friends are sending you a great deal of support this week, Taurus, and you are happy to hear their well wishes. Early in the week the opportunity to experience foreign food, music, or beliefs gives you a new perspective of the world. Take time to step outside of your comfort zone and experience something new. On Wednesday you may feel the need to stand your ground, especially if you have been overlooked in receiving credit for hard work. As Mars continues to move through your sign, a minor bump, cut, or injury is also possible, so be careful where you step. Friday brings a square from Venus to Uranus shortly followed by Venus changing signs. As this is your ruling planet, these aspects will be more personal for you than for the other signs. You are entering a period of increased success in business. You may even encounter someone who can help you achieve success. This will be especially true if they seem to be more eccentric than you might expect in a professional setting.

A partner or close friend’s finances are highlighted early in the week, Gemini, which has the potential to be beneficial.

This is also a great week to initiate a loan with a bank or business entity. Perhaps you’ve been thinking of getting a new car or applying for a personal loan? Don’t hesitate this week, as you can benefit from the best terms and a greater chance of approval. On Wednesday a professional contact from your past returns, and you will be excited to reconnect. Reminisce about old times, and do your best to avoid bringing up a forgotten bet or competition. The only tension this week occurs on Friday, when a heated debate with a group of friends leaves you divided on a social or moral issue. Avoid engaging in social media drama. Over the weekend you are due to travel with or to see a woman.

However, your nurturing nature will ensure it is an agreeable arrangement for both sides. On Wednesday, Mars will be activated in your sector of group dynamics. One-on-one discussions go well this week, though if you need to work with a team at work or school you may be disappointed in not receiving the credit you believe is due to your hard work. At this time it would be best to let this go. Your time to shine will come later. Friday’s exciting energy between Venus and Uranus brings an encounter with an eccentric man. Over the weekend, love is in the air when a deep connection can be made with a new person or existing partner. Take time to enjoy flirting, and don’t be surprised if you are showered with affection or gifts.

Your imagination is on fire this week, Scorpio, as an optimistic mindset lets you feel as though you can accomplish anything. Early in the week, you may even decide to take this exciting energy and invest in a creative project. On Wednesday it will become clear that a project you are working on will require help from an outside source. As much as it pains you to ask for help, you need to admit that an occasional helping hand is necessary. However, you need to be cautious how you ask, as your tone may come across as arrogant or aggressive. Friday’s square between Venus and Uranus brings a sharp hit to your vocal cords, which can produce a sore throat. Take time to have an extra cup of tea and avoid lengthy conversations. As Venus moves into your fourth house over the weekend, you can expect a calm and harmonious environment at home.

On Saturday, you may encounter a friend who doesn’t get the message that you want to be left alone right now. You may want to put your phone on do-not-disturb.
