Your weekly horoscope is here, for the week of February 27th 2021


Astrologer Oscar Cainer lays out your weekly horoscope for the week of Saturday February 27th, to Friday March 5th, 2021.

As soon as kids are old enough to ask for things, they’re taught to lower their expectations. Our principal caregivers tell us what we can and can’t have, and try to convince us to set our sights on achievable goals. While there are advantages in being ‘sensible’, it’s not healthy to think that life always involves having to make compromises. The encouraging relationship between the Sun and Venus in March enables you to upwardly revise your understanding of what’s practical and what’s possible.

This month’s powerful cosmic climate brings chances to reflect and look for deeper truths. It’s also inspires you to discover (and enjoy) the untapped potential in some of your key relationships. The Sun’s links to your ruling planet, Venus, indicate that new opportunities abound. You’re being blessed with an ability to find magic in the ordinary, and happiness in the mundane. There’s joy and delight in store for you in March. And much of it will be discovered where you least expect it to be!

If you could close your eyes and make a wish, what would you wish for? And if that proved a wish too far, what would your next choice be? And the one after that? If you were to spend March going through such a process, you’ll get to the point where you begin to feel far happier about your current situation. You’ll see evidence of tangible improvements that encourage a much more optimistic frame of mind. By the Equinox, you’ll know just what to do to make more of your wishes come true.

Some people like to make plans. Others wait to be stimulated into action. The consequences of living in these challenging times have caused you to deliberate about how to make progress. Although you’ve explored options, and considered alternatives, none have created anything exciting enough to motivate you. Will March bring the insight to make a decision? The powerful cosmic climate, which is heavily influenced by the moon, the ruler of your sign, brings clear signals. Inspiration is on its way.

There are many varieties of apples, each as yummy as the next. It’s the same when it comes to techniques that encourage self-awareness. Are some superior to others? That’s a matter of opinion. Most people agree that it doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you do something! This month, the relationship between your ruler and Venus brings an ease of tension and the promise of more freedom to pursue activities that bring you joy. As long as you’re doing something, that’s all that matters.

Your ability to perceive right from wrong is second to none. Yet sometimes, when you attempt to explain what you feel, you worry that you’re not making sense. Negative comments, from people who think they’re cleverer than you, can make you wonder why you bother to express your views. But surely, it’s better to be right for the wrong reasons than wrong for the ‘right’ ones? You’ve long thought that something must be one way, but have been told that it’s another. March brings vindication.

A helpful discussion will do much to put your mind at rest in March. Someone holds the key to a problem you’re trying to resolve. This information isn’t a secret, nor is it being purposefully withheld. All you have to do is ask the right person the right question. Or maybe, you don’t even have to go that far. It may well be sufficient just to raise the right topic. The Sun’s links with your ruler ensure that what naturally evolves from a series of conversations will prove extremely useful and revealing.

A series of profound experiences is about to make their way into your world in March. ‘Profound’ is a strange word. Does it mean ‘mysterious’? Or ‘complex’? Are you going to discover that there’s more to you (and life) than you knew? Well, yes! But the main realisation involves the depths of your own authenticity. When you mean something, you won’t just be saying it, you’ll really mean it. The same is true for what you feel. Although you may have profound reactions to intense situations, the results will be positive.

In the coming month the question is, do you want to be as hard as iron or as soft as a cotton wool? The answer should be ‘both’! You can’t just eliminate your vulnerable side. But you need to make sure that your most profound feelings are protected behind a solidly constructed wall. Only a well-chosen few should have access to your reservoir of kindness. The challenge, in March, involves allowing your heart to guide you while keeping a threat at bay. This will be much easier to achieve than you think.

The new month finds you building on almost forgotten skills and expertise. Like a talented actor, a gifted scientist, or a great artist, you were never in danger of losing the magic that makes you special. You’ve always had what it takes… and you’ve still got it. Are you equal to the tasks before you? Of course! Will you need to go beyond wherever you’ve been before? Very probably! But if you treat the challenges arising before you as opportunities to shine, your star-quality won’t let you down.

It’s not impossible to go up a descending escalator. You just need to be feeling confident, get some speed up, and exert more effort than would normally be necessary. But if someone, who doesn’t want you to succeed, turns the speed up, you’re going to struggle to make progress. Fortunately, that’s not what March has in store for you. Cosmic assistance is on hand. The New Moon ensures that no matter how difficult a challenge may look, as long as you do your best, success is guaranteed.

Since it’s impossible to turn back the clock, there’s no point regretfully looking back at past decisions. So, does that mean we have to live with the consequences of our actions? Well, yes… but in March, you’ll realise that a historical ‘mistake’ is nowhere near as regrettable as you fear. Your imagination has overinflated the repercussions of a recent choice. Prepare to discover that things have already started to work out well. You might yet have reason to see a ‘mistake’ as a ‘good move’.
