Astro-Update: New Moon in Pisces! Week of 2/22/09

(Sun 2/22)- The Moon is still in futuristic Aquarius. Most of the earlier part of the day will be quiet. The Moon will be conjuncting communicative Mercury in Aquarius (exact at 4:33pm EST). This is a “wear your heart on your sleeve” kind of transit. The Moon will conjunct optimistic Jupiter in Aquarius (exact at 7:37pm EST) bringing back some good feelings. Lastly, the Moon will Sextile Venus in Aries (exact at 10:48pm EST) making the evening favorable for romance & love.

(Mon 2/23)- You might feel fairly energized early today with the Moon conjuncting Mars in Aquarius very early in the morning (exact at 1:48am EST). All these planets in Aquarius still (6 total)! By mid-morning the Moon makes an annoying quincunx to Saturn in Virgo (exact at 11:29am EST). This transit can produce feelings of solitude & frustration. Usually the more you try to push your own agenda, the worse things will get. Lastly, the Moon will conjunct nebulous Neptune in Aquarius (exact at 9:08pm EST). This is excellent for creativity, dream work/recall, and music.

I haven’t talked much about void Moon cycles. When the Moon makes no major planetary aspects to another planet, before it switches into the next sign, is call “void of course”. It is best to not do anything new during these times because it won’t pan out. The Moon will be void of course between 9:09pm-7:58am when it finally enters into dreamy Pisces tomorrow morning.

(Tues 2/24)- Happy New Moon and Mardi Gras! Activities that are favored during Moon in Pisces (exact at 7:58am EST) are: creativity, intuition, spiritual aspirations, higher consciousness, connections with feelings, counseling, music, art, photography, being near water, and charitable work. Also Mercury will be conjuncting Jupiter both in the sign of Aquarius (exact at 1:52am EST). This is the last Mercury/Jupiter conjunction in the sign of Aquarius for 12 years! We will feel opulent, jovial, and downright bubbly. For all you students out there, this would be an excellent time to square away questions about financing and/or higher education. This could also be a favorable day for legal issues. OK, so Pisces literally rules over liquids (a lot of bar tenders have Pisces in their charts), Mercury rules communication, and Jupiter optimism. This is stacking up to be quite the Mardi Gras! The potential to over do it, is an under statement. If you are a bar or restaurant owner, it may be a good idea to have extra staff on, despite the economy. Jupiter helps us to over-spend.

The best time of day for work will be while the Moon sextiles Pluto in Capricorn (exact at 1:33pm EST). Tonight is a New Moon, which is always favorable for starting new ventures. Further, the New Moon will be conjuncting the Sun at the same time (exact at 8:35pm). This will strongly enhance our vitality and we will feel like we can achieve almost anything!! Go for it…..

(Wed 2/25)- Most of the day will be quiet-good for all of you that have hangovers (LOL). In the evening Mercury in Aquarius will Sextile Venus in Aries (exact at 7:59pm EST) giving us the desire to express feelings (most likely romantic feelings). But just after, the Moon will oppose Saturn in Virgo (exact at 8:26pm). The information that is expressed might “fall flat”. Saturn’s influence will want us to have structure to that conversation, not just hopes and dreams.

(Thurs 2/26)- The Moon conjuncts shocking Uranus both in Pisces (exact at 1:09am EST). This could produce startling dreams, sudden flashes of insight, and possibly disturbed sleep. This will start a long void of course cycle from 1:10am-4:24pm. The Moon will then enter pioneering Aries (exact at 4:24pm EST). Aries Moons are kind-of like mini-New Moons. It is considered to be a favorable time to start new projects, physical activities (like sports or working out), dynamism, leadership, competition, and action.

(Fri 2/27)- Other than Tuesday, this is the most favorable day of the week. The Moon will make a positive Sextile to Jupiter in Aquarius (exact at 3:03pm EST) causing us to feel optimistic. Later in the afternoon, the Moon will conjunct with Venus in Aries (exact at 6:57pm EST) giving us a boost both with love and finances. (For those of you that gamble, it would be a beneficial time to place bets around both of those times-just FYI. And no, I am not responsible for potential loss either-sorry). Lastly, the Moon sextiles Mercury in Aquarius (exact at 11:20pm EST). The evening would be ideal for communicating with loved ones, especially siblings.

(Sat 2/28)- Unlike yesterday, today might be a bit more stressful. Hopefully, you can take the day off. One of the main stressors will be Mars (the God of War) quincunxing Saturn (planet of delays & obstacles) exact at 8:47pm EST. But prior to that the Moon will also be transiting both of those planets; Mars (at 1:48am EST) and Saturn (at 3:01am EST). The result will be action vs. plan. Mars gives us the instinct to rush ahead but Saturn puts on the proverbial brakes. Further, the Moon will act as an amplifier and make us feel the push-pull even more, possibly resulting in (sorry to say) grumpiness. Certainly use caution while traveling or driving. Saturn also rules over falls. Then (as if this wasn’t enough) the Moon will make a connection with nebulous Neptune (exact at 12:51pm) making us feel fuzzy and unrealistic. This will start a void of course cycle that will last until 10:33pm EST when the Moon will transition into Taurus. This is not a big decision type of day. I hate to be boring, but the best possible thing to do during this day would be to organize and do house work. It will satisfy Mars’ need to do something!

The above transits are often felt collectively, but you would need to know where within your chart that they fall. As always, I am available for a professional astrological reading. I now have a variety of charts to choose from (relationship, life path, time-line, etc). I can do readings in-person or over the phone. Please feel free to contact me for more information! Have a great week! Bye for now……
