Got a case of righteous indignation? Own it, Aries! But watch your temper. Under the fiery stars of Wednesday, February 22 your authority issues could flare up, especially at work. You ruler, feisty Mars, is in your brash sign, and he’s shooting a challenging 90-degree square to shadowy Pluto in Capricorn and your career corner. The upside is that this cosmic coupling pours jet fuel in your tanks and pushes you to pursue a professional path that reflects your authentic self. But be advised: Any time these intense planets tangle, it can dial down diplomacy and reflexively shift you into “fight the power” mode. While it may be time for some self-advocacy work, particularly if someone has been taking advantage of you, don’t burn any bridges in the process. When your buttons get pushed, you sometimes turn into a rebellious teenager, but that won’t serve your cause, Aries. This is actually a “teachable moment”: Take your internal temperature and see if, where and how you can transform your public image. Since Pluto rules extreme makeovers and Mars spurs us to action, how about giving your work wardrobe a stylish upgrade and, while you’re at it, bringing a new level of sophistication to your social media profiles? Most people are visually oriented, so when you comport yourself with authority and dignity, they’ll be less inclined to mess with you. For Rams itching to bust out of the 9-5 rut and start your own business, begin the legwork in earnest. Challenges will inevitably crop up, but don’t back down! Adversity gives you the opportunity to grow.

Ease up on the gas on Saturday, though. Analytical Mercury swifts into Pisces and your hazy twelfth house, and you may not have adequate bandwidth for rational thought until March 13. Welcome to the surreal world, Ram! But it’s not ALL “Through the Looking-Glass.” There’s a big cosmic lesson here, if you can be comfortable with a loosened firm grip on “reality.” There are many approaches to problem solving, and sheer logic or a relentless force of will are just two. Rip a page from the Pisces notebook and see what happens if you give your imagination free rein. The first thing you might discover is you need a LOT more sleep and rest over the coming weeks. The second: Some of your most amazing creative breakthroughs come not when you’re flexing your left brain but when you’re relaxing, meditating or literally dreaming! Keep a notebook or recording device on your nightstand. You’ll want to capture those brilliant gems before they float away in the ether from whence they came. You can focus on the logistics once the messenger planet moves into your sign in a few weeks.

Your imagination gets another power surge on Sunday, when a new moon/solar eclipse in Pisces rocks the skies—and your inner world! This is the final eclipse in a series that began on March 20, 2015, and it might the one that brings your muse a’calling. This turbocharges the Mercury-in-Pisces creative process and could bring some truly innovative (and life-altering) inspiration. Stay open to what comes to you and don’t try to fit it into any preconceived categories. Visions, images, phrases, musical riffs, “random” connections…this is your brain firing on all cylinders! Your job is merely to observe and record (and make sense of it later). The rest of the world may not recognize your genius until the corresponding full moon in Pisces on September 6. In the meantime, you’ll benefit from working with a mentor or teacher who can nurture your talent and possibly invest in your growth. For some Rams, this eclipse will be nothing short of miraculous, especially if you stretch outside your familiar comfort zone and allow yourself to go with the flow instead of masterminding your every move. Suspend disbelief, release control, then stand back and marvel as the universe delivers your gifts!
