*Eleditor’s note: Astrology isn’t a religion. We’re not sure it’s a science, either. It’s magic, maybe. But, as with feng shui, say, things affect things. So as long as we don’t go blaming our problems on the stars, as long as we assume responsibility for our own actions…well, hell, a little auspicious coincidence and applicable wisdom can’t hurt. And so, with that grain of salt…enjoy!

*Vedic Astrology, or Jyotish, is one of the oldest sciences on the planet and considered a relative of astronomy. It is an important and valuable part of the ancient Vedic texts. This complex, logic-based, and also intuitive science, has survived thousands of years in India’s Vedic tradition and is still considered a highly valuable tool of guidance and life insight. It is not a religion, but rather a philosophical understanding of human and cosmic existence. In Sanskrit, Jyoti means light. Essentially, the study of jyotish is the study of light and how we interact with the cosmic light- within us and within the cosmos. Vedic astrology, or the sidereal approach to astrology, casts charts differently than Western, or Tropical astrology. The meanings, implications, and purpose of jyotish is therefor different, as are the details used for prediction and the indications given below.

 Jyotish Horoscopes for the Waxing Moon Cycle {February 18th to March 5th}

Moon is waxing and swelling, filling and overflowing with abundance and life force energy. Simultaneously Venus is exalted in Pisces which is increasing our connection to creativity, the feminine and also with water.

Channeling our inner waters will be essential at this time for maximum flow, efficiency and comfort. With Mars and Ketu simultaneously in Pisces, we may feel sudden heat, agitation and aggression at times. Passions are hot!

Be aware of your sugar and alcohol intake. Excesses and indulgences are tempting right now. We will be feeling the emotional body at high tide. How do you dance with the currents? What is moving you and how are you moving in response? How can you harness the waters and go with the flow?

*Horoscopes are based on your Vedic rising sign. You can also check your Moon and Sun signs for further insight. Do the same with your Navamsa signs for further clarity. Do not use these horoscopes with your “Western Sign” as there is likely no correlation. These horoscopes are meant to be used as a broad overview of the current transits and obviously do not address the specifics of an individual’s unique chart.

Aries: Relaxation and retreats are a strong desire right now. Stay in bed as much as you can and spend time at the spa. Marriage and relationships offer insights for you about what you need for healing and growth. What do you really want? Finding a new sense of balance in your career is a top priority. Seek support and unusual assistance for help with this. Get passionate about moving out of old patterns and ruts. A whole new cycle is coming to you soon with fresh starts and new beginnings. How are you preparing?

Taurus: There is a strong sense of expansion coming to you right now! Gains, recognition, passion and creativity are high. Use this intensity to forward yourself, but don’t get burned out. Balance is a crucial theme for you, as is paying attention to polarities and extremes. Integrating your separateness, your opposing forces, becomes vital for this balancing act. It will be helpful for your relationship woes as well. Let others reflect back to you where you need the most help with your shadows.

Gemini: It’s a time of deep learning, courage and gains with career. The past is moving you, prompting you to act in new ways, to deepen your awareness of the present. There are parts of your heart, your emotional body that don’t want to budge though. Work consciously with polarities, expansion and contraction for ultimate balance and integration. What are you expanding towards? At the negation and release of what? When one door opens, you must close a door behind you. Slam it shut.

Cancer: You are learning so much from art, creativity and relationships right now. Consider them your guru, your biggest teacher. Allow yourself to get cracked open, let the light into the parts of you that have resisted change and transformation. Be courageous in your creativity, your artistry. Look for overlaps in your artistic process and your life process. They are one and the same. What is the bridge that makes your art relevant to your life? And your life relevant to your art? Let this theme inspire how you connect and who you connect to.

Leo: Emotional balance is a key theme for you at this time. As you passionately uncover the mysteries of your feelings, creativity swells and invites in deeper nourishment. Placing parameters on the mental body invites the emotional body to share its messages with you. Keep listening and notice what your needs are. The past is showing you parts of yourself that long for healing and transformation. Be welling to step back in time, back into your emotions to harvest insights. Let your relationships be a mirror of support with this process.

Virgo: Mirrors are stirring fiery, passionate and intense stories within you. Your inner tides are swelling and inviting in resources for healing your emotional body. Seek greater nourishment and support. Soak it up! Release and let go of what is not supporting your healing and awakening—especially relationships. Watch for returning bad habits and mindlessly returning to old patterns and routines. As challenging as it may feel, it’s a time to work with removing shadows and illusions. Watch for smoke and mirrors.

Libra: Be vigilant with your bad habits and don’t fall off the wagon! It’s extremely tempting to be over indulging in excess sweets, alcohol and expenditures. Seek balance, not extremes. Passion, romance and desires are high. What is the underlying need that is pulling you towards these cravings? What nourishment is lacking? What resources do you need for greater satisfaction? Greater wholeness? Don’t think your way to solutions. Feel your way into them.

Scorpio: You are teeming with creativity and passion right now and you need new ways to share it! New channels, new avenues and new relationships are here to support your process. Ask and ye shall receive. You will shine your brightest and get the most notice if you share from your heart, express authentically and potently. Get focused, be timely, do less and accomplish more. Balancing work and pleasure are very important right now. Watch your gut and notice your cravings. What are they telling you about your needs?

Sagittarius: Your heart is a passionate and heated mess! Bring on the heart burn! What is feeding the flames? Go for the nourishment right now and seek soothing comfort and support. Let the rivers run through you, cleansing away old residues and pains from the past. Channel your courage, desires and inner power effectively for maximum gain right now. Your career expects a lot of you, but you can profit at the same time. Don’t neglect your heart with all the external demands.

Capricorn: Your head is getting a recalibration right now. There may simultaneously be a sense of expansion and contraction in your mind. Find a new mental structure, a new balance point. Let your emotional body wisdom help you with this balancing act as well. Ultimately it will be the three levels of awareness that will deepen this cycle for you. How can you relate the three levels of your being to your creativity? How can your creativity inform your mental, emotional and physical bodies? Creative passions are high. Courageously use this energy to intensify your inner awareness and your outer offerings.

Aquarius: The Sun is shining in your head, making you noticed and seen. What do you want people to witness about you? What parts are you showing? What parts are you not? Your words are extra potent right now which is maximizing your attractiveness—like bees to a flower. Use your speech to sing songs of freedom and share your passions with others. You’re beginning a new Sun cycle. Set your intentions for the coming year and get bold with your desires.

Pisces: You have so much to give and to share right now that you’re likely blowing your top! Frustrations occur when you don’t feel like you’re getting the recognition you need. Surrender the ego for now and look for other lessons and gifts. Relationship desires offer unusual options and effects. Don’t get blindsided by the passion and neglect warning signs. Find emotional balance, tend to your inner waters and learn from your inner wisdom. It’s never wrong.
