AriesThe Sun enters your privacy sector for a stay of approximately a month, dear Aries, encouraging a period of special attention to rest, reflection, and review.

Healing, restful activities are helpful.

At times, it may seem that others are directing your life in some way. You are putting more of yourself and your energy into your relationships with others.

ScorpioThe Sun heads into your solar fifth house today, dear Scorpio, and will visit until March 20th, bringing out your more playful, outgoing qualities. This is a creative period, and for some, it’s especially romantic. New avenues for self-expression and entertainment can open up, and the need for positive feedback is powerful. This show-and-tell house is about naturally expressing your talents, abilities, and affections. As you leave a somewhat insular period behind, you can feel quite liberated. You’re less guarded and find expressing your ideas and opinions easier.
SagittariusThe Sun moves into your home and family sector today, dear Sagittarius, beginning its transit that lasts until March 20th. In the weeks ahead, you’re taking more pride and interest in your domestic life, family, foundation, or closest ties. In many ways, this is a time for anchoring or nesting on a psychological level. While it’s not the most adventurous or outgoing cycle in the Sun’s journey through your solar chart, it’s a valuable period for gaining a stronger sense of self. Soothing and centering yourself with familiar activities can help you meet the demands of the outside world later. Domestic and personal matters are prominent themes now. There can be a lot to learn about or through family and close loved ones during this period. It’s a good time for investing creative energy into your personal life and domestic environment.
CapricornThe Sun moves into your communications sector today, dear Capricorn, and during its month-long stay, you crave more connection with the world around you. Your curiosity grows, and your need for mental stimulation motivates much of what you do. You’re often on the go, even if this is figuratively speaking, and while you’re not always focused and concentrating, you’re branching out and learning a lot in the process. You can be motivated to express yourself more clearly in your communications. You’re also excited to share your ideas and opinions. This cycle is more about discovery and branching out than specializing. Consider it a natural time for putting your feelers out.
AquariusThe Sun heads out of your sign and into your practical second house today, dear Aquarius, encouraging a step-by-step, comfortable approach to your life in the month ahead. You’re symbolically moving on and likely to find this cycle grounding. Until March 20th, aim to take advantage of this energy to focus on being more emotionally present in various areas of your life. It can also be a time for making the most of your natural talents and abilities. Opportunities emerge that have you taking charge of your income and valuables. This cycle emphasizes matters of comfort and security, including financial affairs. It’s an excellent time to work on feeling more empowered by focusing on what you have, what’s working for you, your blessings, and the here and now.
PiscesThe Sun moves into your sign today, dear Pisces, and it will visit until March 20th. You are at a yearly personal peak when you’re more inclined to take mindful action rather than merely react to what is happening around you. You hold more power than usual to make resolutions and to make changes that truly improve your life. As more attention comes to you, you quite naturally want to get your act together. You’ve spent many days contemplative and perhaps in the background in significant ways, and while you’ve likely been quite inspired, the motivation to get up and go may have been lacking. You are regaining your initiative now. The cycle ahead is one in which you’re especially noticeable and feel more in charge and capable.
