Astrologer Oscar Cainer lays out your weekly love horoscope for the week of Saturday, February 27th to Friday, March 5th.
In these challenging times, there are many things we can’t get for love or money – yet we face many situations where more of either would help. In March, the Sun’s link with abundant Venus, at the New Moon, brings seeds of hope that will come into blossom at the Jupiter-infused Full Moon. Although patience is still required, the Equinox adds a spark of energy to the celestial mix. Whatever challenges arise, we’ll have the resources to deal with them. It’s time to look forwards with optimism.
We all need difficulties and adventures in our lives. They add excitement and create memories to cherish. But when we face too many it’s easy to become overwhelmed. Fortunately you haven’t hit that point; as a feisty Aries, you relish the chance to handle a challenge. But even you’re wishing you had less on your plate. Now that the edginess of the Full Moon has passed, you should be granted your wish. Although an emotional challenge is coming, it’s likely to be one you’ll relish.

Some of the tasks that come our way can be handled in minutes. But when you’re already burdened with a big workload, or family commitments, the smallest request for help can be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. But suppose the extra task is more crucial than the other issues that are taking up all your time? This week, you’ll need to put something on hold in order to focus on a new opportunity. Here comes a chance to rebalance. Redistributing the weight will make things much easier.
In these days of cyber crime, we’re advised to take care about the personal information we reveal in our texts and emails. But unless we show the more intimate sides of ourselves, it can be hard for friendships and relationships to develop and for understanding to grow. So, how, for example, do you share more of yourself with someone you’d like to get to know better when there are so many restrictions to bear in mind? A good conversation is the answer. Pick up the phone!
Unless you have the patience of a saint, it’s impossible to be a peacemaker all the time. Although you try your hardest, keeping everyone happy takes its toll. You need a break from a role that switches between being an easy-going friend and a boxing referee! It’s easy to forget that self-care is key to your happiness (and other people’s too). This week, if you try to step back a little; somebody else will step up, and give you the opportunity to invest more quality time in an important relationship.
When a water pipe bursts, we call the plumber; if the central heating fails, we call a heating engineer. But where do we go when we’re struggling with our emotions or trying to break free from ingrained damaging behaviours? Ideally, a psychologist or a psychiatrist; but they aren’t cheap, and not always easy to find. In these socially-restricted times, a ‘talking cure’ is prescribed. This week brings the chance for you to rediscover a trusted friend. A heart-to-heart, with the right person, is all you need.
Is someone ironing your head? Are you sure the answer’s no? It’s an expression, in some parts of the world, used when someone’s being annoying. Whichever idiom you use, there’s no avoiding the fact that you’re on the receiving end of stress from several sides at the same time. If people have been ‘doing your head in’ or ‘getting on your back’ you need to make a stand; or, more correctly, psychologically remove yourself from the source of irritation. The space (and peace) you crave is possible this week.
Does the advent of modern ‘cyclonic’ vacuum cleaners mean that old-fashioned brushes risk becoming things of the past? The advantage of manual sweeping is that if there’s only a small bit of dust, it can easily be swept away out of sight. The problem, is that the pile up can eventually create a hazard! When problems are ‘swept under the carpet’ it’s only ever a temporary, cosmetic solution. You’ve been delaying addressing a key issue… and it’s about to trip you (or someone else) up. The Full Moon energy enables you to dust away a cobweb and polish off a problem.
You have a wide circle of acquaintances, but how many of them are close friends? We only need a handful to help us deal with the ups and downs of life. This week offers a chance to convert an acquaintance into a more meaningful relationship. You’ve been feeling as if some people just don’t ‘get’ you. Now, the legacy of the Full Moon brings a chance to reveal your softer, more sensuous side. We’re not talking about a grand gesture; a small action could be enough to begin something special.
There’s only so much more homework you can do before making a decision. You’ve already done a mountain of it. No one knows more about your burning issue than you. Every possible outcome been and weighed up, and you know what you need to say. If what’s stopping you is a kind of emotional stage fright – fear no more. In this calm period, following the Full Moon, the cosmos gifts you the confidence to make your hard work pay off. It’s not a time to be shy. You know what to do.
Some people mistakenly believe that the planets exert their power on us and oblige us to act in certain ways. The truth, is they create relationships with each other (and us) which need to be interpreted; they can help guide us to know the best time to take action. Following the Full Moon, there’s a move you need to make; a conversation and a sincere gesture are required. If you shake off an anxiety, and act now, you’ll soon reap the benefits. The cosmos offers the encouragement you need.
If you’ve ever watched the credits of a movie right to the end, you’ll know that they list the hundreds of names of individuals who played a part in realising the dream of one person’s idea. No wonder films take years to make! It can’t be easy to consolidate so many people’s differing thoughts. You have a story to tell too – and no cast of thousands to get in the way. You’re writer, director, lead actor of your life. This week, in the afterglow of the Full Moon, it’s time for some creative ‘action’!
Okay! Enough excuses. We’re two months into the year and you haven’t managed to get around to dealing with some of the big items at the top of your emotional ‘to do’ list. This week, take your lead from Mark Twain. He believed that ‘the secret to getting ahead is getting started’. And the secret to getting started is to break overwhelming tasks into smaller manageable tasks, and then tackle the first one. Now that the Full Moon has passed, there’s no better time to get going.
