with vitality, passion, ambition, and raw, unabashed power.
Mars energy makes the mind acute, and the body restless; therefore, on

to be cautious—especially while traveling.

Go Back the Way You Came
Spell Date: Sunday, October 8, 2017
Here’s a simple spell that will protect your home from attack, negative energy, or any unwanted intrusion, physical or astral.

For this spell, you will need:
* 4 small mirrors
* Saltwater
* Incense and burner
* A wand or an athame
* Tape or glue
* A compass

Anoint the mirrors with saltwater, saying:

“By water and earth,
you shall reflect all
harm away from here.”

Anoint the mirrors in incense smoke, saying:

“By fire and air,
you shall reflect all
harm away from here.”

Send power into the mirrors with your wand or athame, concentrating on driving away harm. See whatever comes into the mirrors bouncing off them, reflected back the way it came.

Tape or glue each mirror so that the reflecting side is against the wall, facing the outside, on an unobtrusive spot on the wall near the floor, at the exact point of north, east, south, and west in your home, using your compass.

Then stand in the center of your home and say:

“All harm is reflected away from here. So be it!”

Weekend Wishes
Spell Date: Saturday, October 7, 2017
We all look forward to the weekend and getting in a little fun and relaxation. But it can be hard to let go after a long, tough week. Here is a simple prayer to the elements and the gods to help you make the most of your downtime. Light a white candle if you want and say this with enthusiasm:

“Fire, water, earth, and air,
God and Goddess, spirits fair,
I greet you now in joy and peace,
My work and labors I release.
Free of stress and free of strife,
I’m ready to partake of life!”

Meet Steel with a Penny
Spell Date: Friday, October 6, 2017
An old superstition says that giving a knife (or any kind of “sharp”) is bad luck. Why? Well, because a sharp knife is potentially dangerous. But even more because knives are used to sever or separate things, whether those things be ropes or relationships. People have traditionally avoided exchanging or gifting sharps for fear of damaging the human cords between them.

Fortunately, there’s a workaround. If you give or exchange a knife, athame, boline, sword, or other sharp with another person, tape a shiny penny to the item. The recipient can then remove the penny and hand it back to you, effectively “paying the price” for the item and undoing the potentially negative effects.

Copper is a strong conductor of magickal energy and is thus often used in creating wands. It’s also associated with love and friendship. Carry a penny in your magickal gear and you’ll always be ready to deal with steel.

Honor the Moon with Yoga
Spell Date: Thursday, October 5, 2017
Oh, the myriad names each full moon has! There is not enough space here to write them all. No matter the name of a full moon, it may be honored with a sequence of yoga poses called Chandra Namaskar. This full moon salutation is a quieting series of poses honoring and cultivating the soothing lunar energy. Our internal wisdom, creativity, balance, and intuition are encouraged to surface. Happily, this series is among the least challenging and can be found on the Internet and in books. I urge you to honor the moon with yoga.

“Goddess Diana, our Lady of the Moon,
We draw down your power.
Bless us in this full moon salutation.”

Animal Blessing
Spell Date: Wednesday, October 4, 2017
Today is the feast day of Saint Francis of Assisi, who was well known for his love of nature and animals. Statues of Saint Francis adorn many gardens, and he is celebrated for his embrace of a simple life. On this day, many people perform pet blessings. You can perform one yourself today, or you can bless animals of the wild-or both.

Decorate your altar with statues and images of animals. Give your animal companions special attention today, perhaps a treat or new toy. Say:

“Creatures of the world be blessed,
Scaled, shelled, feathered, furred;
In water, fields, caves, and nests,
I celebrate them with these words.”

Business Success
Spell Date: Tuesday, October 3, 2017
Business is what you do in the working world. Whether you own the business or you work for the owners, success is measured by how well you do at your job. Raises, bonuses, promotions, and perks are awarded based on job performance. You are the person controlling what you do at your job. Be a conscientious worker. Be prompt and attentive to the needs of the business. This will win you the extras you want. But if you are not noticed, it may seem like it is a wasted effort.

Drawing and attracting spells are easy. Be sure you are doing what you want to be seen. Spread attraction powders around your desk or keep sweets on your desk at work to attract attention. Use Better Business oil to keep and hold the attention of the people you want to impress. Keep yourself out front and working. You will be noticed and your efforts will be rewarded.

Destroy a Curse Spell
Spell Date: Monday, October 2, 2017
If you feel you’re having more than just a run of bad luck, try this spell. Even if you think you know who has cursed you, don’t mention the person’s name as you cast this spell. First, gather seven twigs and tie them together with black ribbon. Start a fire in a heatproof dish or fireplace. Hold the bundle of twigs before the fire and repeat seven times:

“Curse, be burned.
Curse, be returned.
Curse, die a natural death.
Curse, die with this fire’s last breath!”

After the last chant, snap the bundle in two and toss it into the flames. The curse is destroyed when the last ember stops glowing. However, let the ashes sit undisturbed for seven days. Then gather them and toss them randomly outside. Don’t keep them or use them for other spells.

Heartwings Love Notes 796 Walking Through My Mother’s Life

Heartwings says, “What people leave behind them tells their story.”

The medium sized cardboard carton was waiting for me to open and sort through it. I had brought it back with me from my mother’s storage unit in South Carolina. It contained paper of all sorts that my mother had seen fit to keep throughout her life. Now for weeks and then months it had sat waiting for me to go through it. I kept moving it around in an effort to motivate myself. Finally, I put it where I could not ignore it: right under my desk. I had to look at it every time I sat down to do anything. Finally, I got tired of looking at it and set to my task.

Some of what I found was reminiscent of her life in the 40’s and 50’s: bills and sales slips from the department stores she shopped at, electric bills and bills for milk delivery, drycleaning and so on. The prices of things from those days were interesting. It was both surprising and sad to see what a dollar used to buy. The names of the stores brought back memories of being with her on shopping trips when the department store was a wondrous place holding all sorts of interesting things to look at. There were also paid bills for expenses related to her art and the galleries she had under her own name.

The quantities of letters on thin airmail paper were impossible to read. Plus, many of them were in German or Spanish. The dates on some envelopes went back to before my mother married my father. It seems she had quite a collection of boyfriends and there were many letters, some I could decipher a little addressed to her in endearing terms. It amazed me that she had managed to keep and haul around that collection for so long. The earliest went back more than 70 years. I had a wonderful walk through her life and times, and I found myself happy to have been able to touch into my own memories of those days.

It seems to me that things were far more innocent then. There were rules to be followed. These had been handed down from generation to generation and applied as long as life was stable and people’s roles mostly well defined. There was more safety in living that way. There are people who wish it were still like that today, however their numbers are dwindling. Once change begins it cannot be stopped or the results will be like a cancer that devours its host. Growth often comes about with pain. However, the freedom of being out from under the rigidity of the life my mother lived with is precious. I am grateful for it.

May you find pleasure in the past and joy in the future.

Blessings and best regards, Tasha Halpert

PS Please feel free to share your memories, joys and pleasures of the past and present with me. I so enjoy hearing from readers and will be sure to answer any emails as promptly as I can.

Magee and the Haunted House
Chapter 2.

It was just starting to get dark when we left Captain Mallory’s dinner party. Raven was driving. Sippi was beside him. I sat on her lap. He gunned the Jag, turned to Sippi and said. “Why wait until morning; let’s check out Twin Forks now.
She petted me and waved her eyes. “And we’ll stop for some Euro Dark on the way back.”
“On a Sunday night?”
“Try,” she grinned. She reached over and touched his shoulder. “If push comes to shove I’ve got some tequila tucked away someplace.”
Raven smiled, reached across the seat and kissed her.
During this romantic interlude I was unceremoniously put in the back seat. Fortunately, I was thoroughly enjoying the smell of the Jaguar’s polished leather. But so as we approached Twin Forks a wisp of a strange scent caught my attention and put me into my cop mode.
I cringed against the back seat. Something wasn’t right. I whimpered and tried to warn Sippi. But she took my message the wrong way and reached into her bag tossing me a spicy shrimp ball.
As the scent got stronger I sensed a snarling beast about to spring at us from out of the darkness, All I could think to do was make a low growl.
“I think’ Magee’s frightened about something.” Sippi said.
“It’s cool Magee,” Raven said. Then he chuckled. “You and me Magee bringing it down, whatever it is.'”
I wished for a lap robe or something I could crawl under. But no such luck. I barked softly again trying to warn them.
But Raven laughed. “Come on Magee, lighten up.”
“Here baby,” Sippi tossed me one of my favorite treats, a tuna biscuit. Normally that and the spicy shrimp ball would do the trick and keep me happy. But not tonight. I wasn’t hungry. I reminded myself that I ‘m a cop and need to stay vigilant and not lose this weird scent by drowning it in treats.
There’s always been something scary to me about Twin Forks. I remember being at the graveyard when Inspector Mallory unearthed the empty coffin in the nursing home case. I had seen long black snakes watching us, poised for attack.
“Twin Forks is a ghost town in more ways than one.” Sippi said as she peered from her window. “You’re right McGee. It’s spooky especially at twilight.”
We drove past a gas station and a motel, then down the road past two old brick buildings and some stores. I hoped Raven wouldn’t stop. I didn’t want to have to sniff in the dark. A dog knows that for certain scents once is enough.
Raven consulted his device. We left the town and passed the graveyard. Raven drove down a winding road until we came to a cornfield. To its right he turned up a dirt road that lead to what was left of a burnt out old mansion.
“You’d think whoever collected the insurance would have fixed that place up,” Sippi said.
Raven shook his head no. “Maybe sometimes its best to let sleeping dogs lie.”
I thought I saw shadowy shapes behind some fallen tree branches. I whimpered and caught Sippi’s attention.
“What you pick up Magee?”
“Whatever it is can wait till we come back tomorrow,” Raven said.
Sippi nodded. “I’ll wear my boots. I really don’t want to go walking around in these shoes.”
“I hear ya,” Raven said, but he drove closer to the ruined mansion before he stopped. He opened his car door, got out, took out his device and started taking pictures. Then he got back in, started up and we headed for home.
Raven drove past the cornfield. As we approached the cemetery he checked his rear view mirror. Moments later he checked again. “Sippi, we’re being tailed. Don’t look back. Whoever it is may just as well think we haven’t noticed anything yet.”
Sippi sniffed and took a small make up mirror from her purse. She held it carefully to reflect the back window. Whoever was behind us drew closer. “Green Chevy, Florida plates,” she said.
“Could be stolen,” Raven said. “Got any enemies gunning for you?”
“Not that I know of. You?”
“Could be, The Bureau just closed the books on an East Coast opiod ring.”
I sniffed and picked up the same scent I had detected earlier.
“I’ll drive around. No need to lead them anywhere near your condo.”
In the midst of this Marjorie’s spirit appeared to me as clear as if she were sitting beside me in her living room. “Be careful, Magee. Stay low to the ground and don’t go trying to be a hero.” Then she quickly faded away. I whimpered.
“Magee get down on the floor.” Sippi said.
The headlights behind us came closer, shining into the car. I cringed onto the floor.
“Party time,” Raven said. He gunned the Jag. Its brakes squealed as he accelerated. The green Chevy swerved, fell behind.
“Sippi, under the seat, holster.”
Then he floored it . Moments later he swerved and the Jag took an exit leading onto a dirt road that led into the parking area of an industrial park. He stopped and turned the car around to face the entrance. Then he grabbed his device and punched numbers.
Sippi took the pistol from its holster, cocked it and held it below the windshield. “Stay on the floor Magee.”
I stayed low. The green Chevy roared through the opening of the industrial park. It stopped fifty yards from Raven’s Jag.
I couldn’t understand the squawking from his phone.
He turned to Sippi. “Out. You go to the right. I’ll go left. From under his seat he took a shotgun.
“Stay in the car Magee,” Sippi said. “Mom and dad have some work to take care of.” Then she and Raven were gone.
I huddled against the floor of the back seat, not wanting to stay in the Jag alone and not wanting to get shot either. Besides Marjorie said not to try to be a hero..

Why Not Now?
By Madisyn Taylor

All the joy and passion you can envision can be yours right now, rather than in a future point in time.

The time we are blessed with is limited and tends to be used up all too quickly. How we utilize that time is consequently one of the most important decisions we make. Yet it is far too easy to put off until tomorrow what we are dreaming of today. The hectic pace of modern existence affords us an easy out; we shelve our aspirations so we can cope more effectively with the challenges of the present, ostensibly to have more time and leisure to realize our purpose in the future. Or we tell ourselves that we will chase our dreams someday once we have accomplished other lesser goals. In truth, it is our fear that keeps us from seeking fulfillment in the here and now–because we view failure as a possibility, our reasons for delaying our inevitable success seem sound and rational. If we ask ourselves what we are really waiting for, however, we discover that there is no truly compelling reason why we should put off the pursuit of the dreams that sustain us.

When regarded as a question, “Why not now?” drains us of our power to realize our ambitions. We are so concerned with the notion that we are somehow undeserving of happiness that we cannot see that there is much we can do in the present to begin courting it. Yet when we look decisively at our existence and state, “Why not now, indeed!” we are empowered to begin changing our lives this very moment. We procrastinate for many reasons, from a perceived lack of time to a legitimate lack of self-belief, but the truth of the matter is that there is no time like the present and no time but the present. Whatever we aim to accomplish, we will achieve it more quickly and with a greater degree of efficiency when we seize the day and make the most of the resources we have at our disposal presently.

All the joy, passion, and contentment you can envision can be yours right now, rather than in some far-flung point in time. You need only remind yourself that there is nothing standing between you and fulfillment. If you decide that today is the day you will take your destiny into your hands, you will soon discover that you hold the keys of fate.

Energetic Sweeping
By Madisyn Taylor

Sweeping the front porch every morning is an important cleansing ritual that prepares the ground for new energy.

In some of our lives, sweeping has become an activity performed without much thought. In many cases, sweeping is a lost art, replaced by the noisy, efficient vacuum cleaner. But in several cultures and religions, sweeping the front and back porch every morning is regarded as an important cleansing ritual that prepares the ground for new energy on every level–physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. It is often employed to sanctify a space and prepare it for a ceremony. This seemingly simple action has the power to clear away the old and make space for the new. It stirs up the energy in a place, clearing out the astral buildup that is the natural by-product of the presence of humans.

This kind of sweeping is not about cleaning the area of dust. In fact, the broom doesn’t have to actually touch the ground to be effective. You might want to consider having two different brooms, one you use for cleaning dust and dirt, and one you use for energy clearing. If you are so inspired, you could decorate your broom by carving its handle, painting it, decorating it with gemstones and ribbons, or any other creative adornment that appeals to you. You can also make your own broom out of tree branches and twigs, or choose a naturally appearing broom from nature, such as a pine bough.

Sweeping each morning prepares the ground for the new day at the same time as it deepens our awareness of the importance of letting go of the past to welcome the present. As we clear the energy of our space, we clear our own energy systems. In addition, we create a space that feels clean, clear, and open to all who enter. Be sure to think welcoming thoughts as you sweep, manifesting what you need for the day. Making sweeping part of our daily ritual tunes us into the continuing cycle of releasing the old and welcoming the new that is the hallmark of a healthy energy system.

Weekly Horoscopes beginning: Sunday, 08 October 2017

If you`re born within cusp period (16 to 26 of any month); you`re advised to read horoscopes of both signs covered by that period. You`re in the border; you may have influences from houses within those signs.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Aries
Personal theme: I am!!
Fire & cardinal sign: March 21 — April 19

Your horoscope for this week:

The big news – and probable big noise – this week is that Jupiter moves from your opposite sign and into Scorpio. As you might imagine, when the largest planet of our solar system moves from one area of the zodiac to another, it does so with a roar. This year`s roar could be louder than most. Recall, Jupiter only changes signs once every year. Turbulence is to be expected. In this instance coinciding with a new phase in the Mars-Saturn cycle, considerable effort (most likely of the physical kind), will surely be required. Whether you`re moving furniture, or making room for a major project, there`s high probability of experiencing that `all hands to the deck` feeling. Whilst absolutely keen (as is usual for Aries) to get on with things, you might nevertheless be irritated at the prevarication shown by some people. Being patient, and dealing with practicalities could prove testing. That said, by Saturday and given more rein, you could use your natural creativity to advantage and be noticed as a result.

Earth & fixed sign: April 20 — May 20

Your horoscope for this week:

Jupiter arrives in your opposite sign this week. It`s over a decade since it last moved through Scorpio. This should be seen as the start of a six-year period when your world expands: new contacts can be made with relative ease and your network improve and expand. Priority initially may be on one-to-one partnerships and yes, before the weekend you could lock horns with someone who thinks they should have all the attention (a Scorpio?). It`s also just possible that as of Tuesday you`ll hit a legal bump in the road. It may be that you don`t meet all the requirements in one negotiation. You might also wonder whether or not another party has an unrealistic view of what you do. Not for the first time, it might be suggested that you need to give attention to marketing and public relations. Giving careful thought to this – especially toward the end of the week – could prove a wise investment of your time.

Gemini
Personal theme: I think!!
Air sign: May 21 — June 20

Your horoscope for this week:

This week, Jupiter arrives in the area of your solar chart associated with day-to-day matters. As you might expect from the largest planet in the known solar system moving into your `work` zone, considerable work is likely headed your way. Focusing on this and having a clear strategy as to which tasks should be attempted first will presumably be priority. Initially, and especially on Wednesday, there could be panic as to whether or not you have sufficient resources. It may be that a rebuild of some kind is on the agenda. Taking this into bite size pieces will presumably be wise. You might also require both the energy and creative ideas of those born under the Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn. The latter, though emphasising the need for caution and yes perhaps pouring cold water on certain ideas, could yet prove valuable allies. Taking time to take stock and being clear about revised aims would be wise. In all this, it`s perhaps imperative that you give thought to your nervous system and the vitamins and minerals needed to maintain its condition.

Cancer
Personal theme: I feel!!
Water & cardinal sign: June 21 — July 22

Your horoscope for this week:

It likely won`t take much to tune into Jupiter`s arrival in another of the Water signs, Scorpio, as of Tuesday. Though Jupiter moves sign every year it doesn`t always arrive in another of the Water signs. It`s actually been over a decade since it last transited the area of your solar chart that is deemed to be the most creative. This then could indeed be the start of something big. That said, it`s common as Jupiter moves from one area into another, to experience turbulence. Whilst its arrival in Scorpio is promising for affairs of the heart, even these could be subject to ripples of difficulty or jealousy. By the weekend however you should have a clear idea of a project you want to see completed before your birthday next year. This could in fact become something of an obsession by February or March 2018. Seeds are likely to be planted this week and find you happily investing time and money in this direction.

Leo
Personal theme: I will!!
Fire & fixed sign: July 23 — August 22

Your horoscope for this week:

Jupiter`s arrival at the very base of your solar chart is unlikely to go past unnoticed. Concern about property and asset management could top your priorities. A refit, refurbishment or simple review will surely require attention. It`s entirely normal as Jupiter moves from one area of the zodiac to another (which happens annually), for this to coincide with a hiatus. The middle of the week then could find you demanding attention as a matter of urgency. Simultaneously however, you could hit rules and regulations that appear unhelpful and restrictive. Negotiating these might not be as great a challenge as would have been the case just a couple of months ago: you now have considerable experience in negotiating. Indeed, the way in which you handle a deal on Friday could offer a masterclass in how to get what you want using charm and persistence.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Virgo
Personal theme: I analyze!!
Earth sign: August 23 — September 22

Your horoscope for this week:

All signs will surely feel the effect of Jupiter`s move into Scorpio this week. Jupiter only changes signs once a year It`s actually over a decade since it last visited Scorpio. As you might imagine, as the solar system`s largest planet moves from one area of the zodiac to another, there are ripples. Indeed, turbulence is more likely than not. Its arrival in an area of your solar chart associated with communications, could leave you with great thirst to know more. An increase in the number of short journeys you undertake is probable too. You could become more involved in the affairs of neighbours and siblings. In short, this promises to be the start of a busy period. Laying down ground rules now would be wise. In particular, it`s perhaps worth considering assessing your writing style and even your actual handwriting. Being clear is surely imperative. You might also find that you`re asked to be more concise just at a time when you`re keen to develop ideas. Think precis: short and focused.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Libra
Personal theme: I balance!!
Air & cardinal sign: September 23 — October 22

Your horoscope for this week:

Jupiter leaves your sign on Tuesday and doesn`t revisit Libra for more than a decade. That planet`s passage from one sign to another tends to bring a whirlwind of activity. In this instance, you may feel your very foundations are shaken. Whether this is because you`re excited about an event planned for later in the month or because there are fast moving developments at work, your scales could easily be imbalanced. This though, is perhaps something you`re getting used to. It`s no longer necessary for you to try to rebalance too quickly. In fact, it might be better to go with the flow and allow for violent fluctuations over the next few days especially. All will presumably be different after Venus enters your sign next weekend. Jupiter`s passage through Scorpio should at the very least bring an increase in cash flow. Whilst it might be implied that this is the beginning of a promising financial year it`s as likely that you`ll have to negotiate quick turnarounds in money matters. You might then agree before the weekend that you need is the support of either a good friend or financial adviser who, through this turbulent period, ensures that your security is not compromised.

Scorpio & Ophiuchus
Personal theme: I desire!!
Water & fixed signs: October 23 — November 21

Your horoscope for this week:

Elsewhere you may read that Jupiter`s arrival in your sign as of Tuesday is a good thing. It`s certainly true that traditionally Jupiter has been viewed as a planet of opportunity and expansion. Yet it`s common as this planet moves from one sign to another, to experience high volume of activity and yes, chaos: which may be particularly true this week. Over the weekend you could be privy to a power struggle. You might also wonder if you have the strength to continue pursuing a course of action that is proving far more demanding than you ever imagined. Indeed, as early as Tuesday you could use a rule or regulation as a potential get-out clause. It may be though that you simply don`t have the right team behind you. Yet, all could yet change. It`s entirely possible that the aura around you is changing (the Jupiter effect) and that others fervently want you on their team. The very idea of going ahead without you may be stressing them. This though, should give you good ammunition for negotiating a better deal.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Sagittarius
Personal theme: I see!!
Fire sign: November 22 — December 21

Your horoscope for this week:

It`s not at all uncommon as your ruling planet, Jupiter, moves from one sign to another, for things to seem especially fast-moving and yes, at times chaotic. Jupiter`s move into Scorpio on Tuesday is unlikely to disappoint. You might reasonably wonder if a partner or close working colleague has taken on more than they can handle. At the other end of the scale, it`s always possible that it`s you who`s implied capability you`re not entirely confident that you have. On top of all of this, contact with those whom you see rarely but who have the ability to excite your brain cells could be such that you`re keen to be in top form by the weekend. Those of your sign are often viewed as having superhuman capability. It`s perhaps as well though, to take time and be realistic. As Jupiter changes signs on Tuesday, you could hide behind rule or regulation or in some other way place boundaries. All this said, and by going yes, perhaps at a slower speed than usual, you could, with this revised strategy, put in place excellent foundation stones for a plan you hope to manifest when Jupiter reaches your own sign this time next year.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Capricorn
Personal theme: I use!!
Earth & cardinal sign: December 22 — January 19

Your horoscope for this week:

The big news this week is that Jupiter moves from the career sector of your solar chart into an area linked to friendships, associations and distribution. It`s probable that in the coming months your network will indeed expand. Initially however this could cause you a moment`s qualm. It might be suggested that you join a group but that to do so would be expensive. You might also wonder if there is a hidden agenda. Taking time to consider options would surely be wise. Yet it may be that this is indeed the moment to pursue professional links. With a sound strategy in place this could indeed work well for you. Curiously, and perhaps not entirely unconnected, discussions could take place about an idea that someone senses has potential but would benefit from your involvement. They may be right in that this would provide a useful second revenue stream. Putting this in place before Uranus moves into another of the Earth signs next spring might not be a bad idea. Indeed, in years to come you might look back on this week as having marked a significant career-related turning point.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Aquarius
Personal theme: I know!!
Air & fixed sign: January 20 — February 18

Your horoscope for this week:

Jupiter moves from one sign to another every year. This year the ingress takes place on Tuesday when it moves from another of the Air signs to a Fixed sign like your own. Its arrival at the very apex of your solar chart is unlikely to go unmarked. You might well attract considerable attention. It`s possible that career developments will be thrust upon you and that initially you might even panic. With the Moon moving through Cancer as Jupiter arrives in Scorpio it would be understandable if you felt more than a little emotional. It might also be that you feel your security is threatened. It`s entirely normal r that as Jupiter changes signs, for people to experience turbulence. Yet you could come to the conclusion that events might yet turn to your advantage. With it clear that at least one person wants to pursue a working partnership with you and yes, though a level of risk might be involved, there`s little reason to suppose you couldn`t make a success of this development after a period of adjustment.

———— ———– ———- ——— ——– ——- —— —– —- — — –

Pisces
Personal theme: I believe!!
Water sign: February 19 — March 20

Your horoscope for this week:

It`s been over a decade since Jupiter last visited Scorpio (another of the Water signs). Jupiter`s entry into any of the signs usually comes with a few storms and turbulence. So, the start of this week could prove challenging for everyone. Given Neptune`s position in your own sign and aspects to that planet however, Pisces adjust to a new tempo with relative ease. In fact, you might be tempted to do the `I told you so` bit several times over. You might also find that a rule or regulation works very much to your advantage. As Jupiter is one of your ruling planets and you are, after all a Water sign, the coming months could find you at your best. True, you might need to swim through waters that are deeper than usual. In good company (and that`s likely), you could be swimming in formation before the end of the week. So yes, there is every likelihood of you soon working with a team that you respect and who clearly value your contribution.
