A Pisces is born to be sensitive. They are intelligent, kind, loving people, but they are sensitive. So if you are one of those folks who says whatever comes into your mind, then do yourself a favor and stay away from Pisces people.

If you neglect to heed this advice, know that you are going to face tears and broken hearts, mainly because this water sign takes everything seriously.

Pisces make great caregivers. Why? Because those in need of a caregiver are usually grateful to have the care and say only kind words.

Kind words are what Pisces loves to hear. Pisces are creative, imaginative and loving and are always willing to help. So if you need someone to care and someone to love, find yourself a Pisces and you will be in heaven.


People born this week: Sir John Mills, Feb. 22, 1908; Patricia Richardson, Feb. 23, 1951; Steve Jobs, Feb. 24, 1955; Chelsea Handler, Feb. 25, 1975; Jackie Gleason, Feb. 26, 1916; John Steinbeck, Feb. 27, 1902; Bernadette Peters, Feb. 28, 1948; Tony Robbins, Feb. 29, 1960; and Justin Bieber, March 1, 1994.


Mercury goes retrograde on Saturday, Feb. 23, 4:41 a.m. and remains retrograde until St. Patrick’s Day. Then the full moon falls on Feb. 25. So you can be sure the next couple of days will be days to watch out. Emotions run high and tempers do the same. So be cautious or suffer the consequences.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) A mystery situation in your life could be cleared up this week. Try being silent and patient, and you could come across the answer. With Uranus sitting in Aries you can always expect surprises to pop up, certainly when the moon is full on Monday.

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Now that Saturn is slowly moving in Scorpio, which is opposite your sun, you can expect an occasional disappointment. But if you turn it around and learn from it then it won’t happen again. A text message could cheer you at the end of the week. So stay alert and expect some fun.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) A kickoff for a new venture should take place before the 23rd or after March 17 because your ruling planet, Mercury, will be retrograde for three weeks. Look for a new love, a soul mate to cross your path. It will depend on your mood on how it goes from there. Try starting slowly by promising nothing.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) This could be a big deal week. So stay alert and don’t take no for an answer. If you have done your homework then you will be in charge of your life now. No time for moods or upset. Get busy by making your dreams a reality. An opportunity to test the new you is going to happen.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) With Uranus making a fancy trine to your sun you should be able to communicate your every need to your latest interest. Keep up with the latest ventures of your close pals and join them if you feel the urge. Bide your time if you can’t start before Saturday, Feb. 23, when Mercury is retro.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Planning a new venture now is fine just don’t sign on the dotted line or make a big promise until March 17. Know you are moving in the right direction and ignore what others have to say about your latest relationship. You are right on. After all no one knows you like you do.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) The culprit in your life now could be you. So review what it is you want for the big move for your future and then get out of your own way. There is no need to rush since nothing will really start until March 17. Talk things over with a trusted pal and then start the big plan.

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) The more you enjoy discipline and responsibility, the happier you will be right now. With Saturn in Scorpio the lessons are all connected with added discipline in your life. This will lead you to the joy of your life if only you listen and follow your dream.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) The magic and the memories of the past should be packed away. Once you are done, then your new agenda will begin to take shape. An old romance could be rekindled shortly. Strangely, it will make you excited as never before. Just close your eyes and follow your heart.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) You could be disappointed in an old friend and how he is now treating you, but just look the other way. It will not be a wise move to treat your former pal as an enemy. You do that and it will cost you pain and money. You might try working hard and ignoring the nonsense.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) It is fast becoming important to stop wasting time with idle chitchat. This is a good time to be more creative and you can’t accomplish much with nonsense. Try removing yourself from the usual meeting place and spend just a little more time alone. It will pay off well.

Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) With Neptune in Pisces it is time to get yourself into a routine and stay in it. Otherwise you will miss some perfect opportunities to improve your life. The improvements include more confidence and income. A good pal could help you stay on the path.
