If we get stuck in the rigidity of our being right even when proven wrong, an attitude of self-absorption could lead us down the brambled path of bad decisions and inappropriate actions this week.
The Ukraine could become a focal point for a dangerous game of chicken in the geopolitical world and one that could become heated over the short-term and perhaps even more intense as we come towards the end of this year and again in the summer of 2015.
While the often-used saying indicates that March comes in ‘like a lion’, this March comes in with a great deal of emotion but perhaps without a great deal of action. Is this beginning of March a toothless lion? Not so much, for we may feel awash in our moods and sentiments but thinking that we cannot move too far ahead in advancing our projects.
This week can have us coming and going, sometimes wondering where, other times wondering how, but always aware that we are in constant motion.
Winter lingers on this week, although this winter may seem more like body slams that send us reeling rather than trifling irritations. Eventually, winter must come to an end with Spring sprung, but it’s not yet, it’s not now.
This week, we may have a case of the winter doldrums, wishing and hoping that Spring would fast approach, all the while that we are suffering mood swings with a sense of being restricted by circumstance.
On February 7th at 8:00 PM local time, the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi will begin with the opening ceremonies. Earlier that day, Mercury will have turned from direct motion to retrograde motion.
This week can swing high and swing low. We may be fast out of the gate as we start the week, but we have to be wary of stumbling as we near the end of the week.
The potential for indulgence, excess and going overboard cannot be discounted during early February. The month begins in the US with Super Bowl Weekend and this Super Bowl, Super Bowl XLVIII, has been nicknamed the Stoner Bowl and the Pot Bowl in recognition of the two teams playing coming from the only two US states that have legalized marijuana for recreational use to date.
