The long-standing opposition between authoritative Saturn and rule-breaking Uranus returns on February 5, forming tense squares to your Sun. You can feel pulled between your responsibilities and the call of freedom, but fortunately you don’t have to make a definitive choice immediately. This is just another chance to weigh the importance of security against your need for stimulation. Learning as much as you can about your own limitations now will lead to wiser decisions in the future. You may shift to a more contemplative mood when the Sun enters intuitive Pisces in your 4th House of Home and Family on February 18. Redirecting some of your attention from the outer world toward personal needs can restore your faith in yourself and those closest to you. You may be touched by a profound revelation on February 24 as the New Moon in spiritual Pisces plants seeds of faith in your fertile 4th House of Roots.

You don’t have to shout to be heard today, because people will listen when you talk. Chatty Mercury joins your ruling planet, Jupiter, empowering you with words of wisdom that motivate others to pay attention. You have the facts to back up your beliefs and the big-picture perspective that gives data meaning, which is excellent for teaching or selling. You could, however, overwhelm yourself or others with too much information. Being selective in your presentation is more effective than presenting everything you know.
