It’s the 7th week of the year and the card of the week is the King of Swords. This week, the planets ask us to take a look at what we want in life and decide if the dreams we’re pursing are realistic. We will need to decide if we want to keep fighting for what we want or if we want to surrender to the flow of the Universe. Like the King of Swords, remove emotion from your decision and cut through tot he truth of the matters at hand with an objective mind. The number 7 is a number of reassessment and reevaluation. Take advantage the couple of days when Mercury and Venus and the Sun are all in Aquarius to bring major revolution to your life. Set everything in place so by the time the Sun enters Pisces, when you can surrender to the flow of it all.

Sunday 2/14/16 8 of Pentacles (Reversed)
Moon in Taurus
First Quarter 11:46 PM PST
The card of the day is the 8 of Pentacles Reversed. The message this card brings is that perfectionism is holding you back. Like the micromanaging boss who holds back progress in the workplace by getting hung up on tiny details, you need to see the big picture in order to find the direction you need to take next. Today is Valentines’ day, so if your love life is suffering, take today to overlook the little things that may bug you about your partner and take time to remember why you fell in love with him or her. If you are single, this may be a sign that reveals you are too caught up in finding the “ideal” mate without seeing all the other options available to you. Moon trine Pluto at 7:27 AM PST brings intense interactions that are passionate but draining. But you should get a boost of energy by the afternoon when the Moon forms a trine with Jupiter at 3:13 PM PST bringing happiness, harmony and flow to your Sunday. Moon opposition Mars at 4:13 PM PST may find you feeling irritable so find constructive ways to deal with this grumpy feeling. We end the day with Moon square Sun at 11:46 PM PST. If you feel out of sorts, do some meditation before bedtime. The number of the day is 7, a number of movement forward.
Mantra: Nothing and no one is perfect, not even me.
