Astrologer Oscar Cainer lays out your weekly horoscope for the week of Saturday February 13th, to Friday February 19th, 2021.
Have you ever been told that you’re an idiot? I’m confident that, if anyone has ever attempted to insult your intelligence, you’ve shown them that they’re completely wrong by serenely ignoring their insult! Yet it’s not always easy to resist provocation. And it’s not always people that wind us up. We find ourselves in situations that push our buttons and trigger our emotions. As you reach understanding of why someone’s been irritating you, you can bring harmony into a relationship.
You’re worried that you’re, metaphorically at least, heading up a creek that you’d rather avoid. Fortunately, you have an effective paddle in hand in the form of the rare link between Saturn and Uranus. It not only ensures that you’ve got the equipment you need, it gifts you with the cosmic equivalent of an outboard motor. Although there’s a risk that your means of escape could potentially stir up more of the creek’s less desirable content. You’ll be back, sailing in fresh waters, before you know it.

You know that game with the plastic frogs? Once upon a time, it was a feature of fairgrounds and arcades. The aim is to hit them on the head with a mallet as soon as they pop up out of their holes. The trouble, is that in real life, the frogs aren’t frogs. They’re people, situations and unpredictable challenges. And instead of a mallet, you only seem to have a limited amount of time and energy. So what happens if you just let them pop up? They’ll disappear back down again if you ignore them.
A process has been set in motion. To stop it, you’ll have to act quickly and decisively. You’ll need to stop the clock counting down, or blow out the wick of the fuse before it gets to the explosive bit. But why would you want to do that? A long-needed change has finally begun. Don’t doubt what’s coming to fruition just because you’re starting to develop a temporary case of cold feet. This week’s Saturn-Uranus link brings the cosmic equivalent of warm socks. You can relax. Let things unfold.
Supremely confident people often do stupid things. Although the doubt, the uncertainty and the fears you’re currently undergoing are difficult to deal with, they’re serving a useful purpose. They’re forcing you to look at legitimate concerns. And just because the road ahead isn’t straightforward doesn’t mean it’s not leading to the right destination. As long as you treat a delicate issue with sensitivity, you’ll not only bypass an obstacle, you’ll find yourself on a short-cut to where you want to be.
Even for Virgos, it’s never wise to try to be too sensible. Life isn’t sensible! And while you can find plenty of examples of efficacy in the natural world, just looking at the positions of the planets in our cosmos is enough to show you that inefficiencies abound. Why, for example, is the ball of fire that brings us warmth and light situated so far away? Even if you can think of obvious ways to improve several situations in your world, this week shows you that something silly isn’t as silly as it first appears.
It’s frustrating when you feel limited by the amount of power you can wield. You’d feel much better if you were in control of your destiny, or at the very least, had a more meaningful say about the path you’re following. You seem to be at an impasse; unable to go any further under your own steam. That’s why teamwork is key. If you’re willing to share the responsibilities, you’ll be able to recover your sense of control. Once you’ve worked out who you can trust, you’ll move forward, fast.
You’re tempted to play it safe, hedge your bets and carry your psychological umbrella with you in case of a downpour. Although it’s helpful to know that you’re equipped for sudden showers, as Saturn and Uranus align this week, you don’t need to worry about how to protect yourself. They say that the best form of defence is to attack! So, be as courageous as you can be and try to stop worrying. You’re more than adequately prepared to make a success of everything that’s heading your way.
Old enemies from the past can become our friends. Past difficulties can transform into opportunities. What were once perceived as liabilities can turn into assets. As Saturn and Uranus link this week they bring about an unexpected change. You might not be able to tell by simply watching the events that unfold. You’ll need to be brave enough to throw yourself into the experience. Just because you think you recognise a scenario doesn’t mean that it will work out the same way. Have faith.
How long is a piece of string? Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Just like some of the problems and dilemmas you’re currently facing, these age-old conundrums can never be resolved. When it comes to unsolvable mysteries, we’re caught in a never-ending series of ‘what-ifs’. As your ruling planet Saturn links to electrifying Uranus this week, it brings the ability to make an unusual compromise. You no longer need to seek perfection. It’s by joining forces with someone that you’ll find success.
The future is like a seesaw. If we put too much weight on one side, it tips in one direction. You’re dealing with a scenario that’s just about working. If only you could make it more solid, you’d be able to make the best of several different situations. How are you going to do that? By facing a fear and finding the confidence you’re entitled to feel. As Uranus (your ruler) links with Saturn, if you find the courage to look at something you’d prefer to avoid, you’ll make your next move for the right reasons.
When we find ourselves in a patch of low, thick fog it’s impossible to see where we’re going. We’re temporarily disorientated. The best course of action it to accept it, and move carefully until we’ve made our way through or it begins to clear. It’s quite another thing to build an enormous fire and burn wet leaves and branches, causing a dense film of smoke to permeate the air. This week, you can move away from a path of misunderstanding and find your way along the bright road of clarity.
