The Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on February 15, 2018, marks a fresh opportunity for freedom. Breaking away from restrictive alliances and environments won't only become possible ... it will feel necessary. This New Moon is conjunct mental Mercury, making it easy to plan an effective exit strategy.
Unlike standard New Moons, which have an influence of four weeks, Solar Eclipses have an impact on the following six months. Therefore, to take full advantage of this remarkable event, it would be wise to think big.
Aquarius is the sign of the visionary, so imagining your best life would be a great use of this inspirational energy. Instead of yearning to write a book, tell yourself it is already written. Create a book cover for it and put it on an existing volume of the desired size. Place this book on your desk or work space. The sight of your "finished project" will inspire you to go to the page and fill in the blanks. Soon, your dream project will manifest itself in the physical world, perhaps by the next Solar Eclipse on July 12, 2018.
It doesn't really matter what goal you envision during this Solar Eclipse, provided it resonates with you on a deep level. Learn what special gifts this eclipse holds for your sign by reading your horoscope below...

Whether this means moving into your own place, relocating abroad, or living out of a recreational vehicle is immaterial. The important thing is to create a home that fills you with excitement and pleasure. Certain relatives may turn up their noses at your surroundings. Don't let that bother you. Just because they prefer conventional surroundings doesn't mean you should embrace them. If you want to live in a tree house, that's your business. Are you happy with your current abode? An unusual relative or roommate could join your household.

Take a position that is less demanding or sell your handiwork on an artisanal web portal. If you've always wanted to write a book, now is the time to begin.

Whether you want to be part of a couple, start a family, preside over a business, or achieve fame in your desired field is immaterial. The important thing is to liberate yourself from self-limiting attitudes. Instead of insisting the dating market is terrible, be assured your soulmate is waiting for your arrival. Rather than lamenting over limited job prospects, create the position you desire. If you catch yourself wondering whether an audition is worth your time, treat this experience as your first day of work.
Pisces Horoscope (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Get ready for a spiritual breakthrough. This Solar Eclipse invites you to adopt a totally different attitude toward your sacred self. Rather than adhering to beliefs that were imposed on you as a child, build your own philosophy of life. Conducting rituals that honor the earth, sky, and water can be especially uplifting for a mystical sign like you. Get into the habit of honoring each New and Full Moon with a ceremony of some kind. Above all, abandon all thoughts of fear and shame. The sooner you craft a belief system that is centered on self-love and acceptance, the faster you will transcend the mundane problems that have dogged you since childhood.
