Rock Stars: Guitar World Horoscopes, Week of February 27, 2012

Is this the right time to record the rock opera you've been putting off? Should you join that death metal bluegrass band? Check in every week with Margaret Santangelo's Rock Stars column.

The theme of this week is purification and cleansing. It may still be winter, technically speaking; nonetheless, the time is right for a thorough spring cleaning.

Shed regrets, abandon resentments, and clear the slate this week. The season of rebirth and regeneration, marked by the vernal equinox and the Sun’s entry into Aries, is quickly approaching. Mercury’s transit into Aries on Friday, March 3, brings fresh perspectives and renewed clarity, especially regarding deep, intense, emotional issues that have been blocking spiritual progress.

Now is the time to move past simple forgiveness and forward into total and complete redemption.

ARIES: You can finally think clearly again this week as Mercury moves into your Sun sign, Aries, and renews your natural optimism. A positive point-of-view enables you to easily overcome previously insurmountable obstacles. You are able, and should make an effort to, make important life decisions this week while your thought process is razor sharp. Mercury will reverse course in a few short weeks which could cloud your judgment, so now is the time to get your affairs in order.

TAURUS: This week, the central conflict plaguing Taurus is between remaining cut off from the world and breaking out of your cozy, safe cocoon. The costs and benefits of either option must be weighed carefully; there is something to be said for protecting oneself from repeated assaults and violations. However, power is shifting, however subtly, and slowly, back to your tribe as Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, reverberates through your Sun sign. If there was ever a time for Taurus to make a move, it is now.

GEMINI: Your keen powers of observation are at an all-time high right now, Gemini, and what’s more powerful is your ability to communicate your thoughts to others. Collaboration is especially powerful precisely because you are able to articulate your vision with precision and clarity. The only obstacle in your path is an inner battle being waged between your desire for recognition and your predisposition to maintain a comfortable distance between yourself and the world at large. Work on resolving this internal conflict in the weeks ahead in order to continue progressing on your path.

CANCER: This week you may finally be able to resolve long-standing domestic disputes by clearly expressing your emotions to loved ones. Resorting to a passive-aggressive M.O. is not the solution to conflict; playing games will only escalate a dispute and aggravate the situation (as well as all involved parties). As difficult as it may be to come out and say what’s on your mind, you should consider relieving yourself of burdensome resentments now – before everything spins out of control.

LEO: Unprecedented growth awaits Leo in the months ahead, and this week marks a turning point in your journey. However, one conflict must be resolved before you can move forward. You must decide what you really want: money, status, and fame or value, joy, and fulfillment. Either option can be yours, and the two paths are not, by any means, mutually exclusive. However, a fork in the road may force you make a choice that requires a personal reckoning. You can no longer straddle the fence and choose not to choose. Otherwise, the universe will make the decision for you.
