Hope you all had a nice weekend! The only planet making a transition this week (other than the Moon's normal switch every 2 1/2 days) is the Sun into the sign of dreamy Pisces this Wednesday!
(Sun 2/15)- The Moon is still in passionate Scorpio. The Moon forms two annoying squares today; Mars (exact at 1:24am EST) and Jupiter (exact at 3:50am EST), in the early morning hours. Otherwise, this is mostly a quiet day. Watch for over spending or being overly aggressive today. Anything related to research, occult, detective work, self discovery, digging below the surface (both figural & literal), passion, mysteries, secrets, etc. are good to pursue during a Scorpio Moon.
(Mon 2/16)- It is said in Astrology that the Moon transitioning from the sign of Scorpio into the sign of Sagittarius is the most stressful of all the moon transits. If I were to equate it to a day of the week, it would be most like Wednesday (commonly referred to as “Hump Day”). The Moon will form two annoying squares during the day. It will square Neptune (exact at 8:11am EST) causing us to feel “fuzzy” in the morning. Make sure you have yourself organized Sunday tonight, so that all you have to do is get ready & head out the door. Then the Moon will square the Sun (exact at 4:37pm Est). This could signify power struggles, and stress both at work and home.
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 4:38pm-7:53pm when it finally enters into optimistic Sagittarius. Just before midnight, Venus will sextile Jupiter (exact at 11:47pm EST). This is favorable for both love and finances. So to re-cap the earlier part of the day may be stressful, but things will get better tonight!
(Tues 2/10)- This is a favorable day! Activities that are favored during moon in Sagittarius are: sports, horseback riding, outdoors/nature, spiritual aspirations, higher consciousness, honesty/bluntness, law/legal, higher learning, travel, and getting out to meet people. Further Mars will conjunct Jupiter (exact at 11:27am EST). This is a great transit for starting a new business venture and physical vitality. We will feel good and probably have lots of energy on this day. The only caution is to make sure we can deliver on our promises that we make because Jupiter tends to be a little overly optimistic sometimes. Otherwise go for your dreams!!
(Wed 2/11)- The Sun moves into dreamy, intuitive Pisces today (exact at 7:46am EST). Happy birthday to all you Pisces out there!! Words and phrases to describe Pisces are: “I Believe!”, dreamy, idealistic, caring, sympathetic, creative, artistic, tender, sensitive, drifter, psychic, impressionable, escapism, charitable. Neptune is the ruling planet and it’s associated with feet, veins, fluids, lymphatic system, & glands. Its metal is Tin. Stones: Jade, Coral, Aquamarine, Bloodstone, Rock Crystal, and Sapphire.
This day will start with Venus sextile Mars (exact at 4:31am EST). This placement often results in physical expression of love & sexuality. All I will say, is maybe allow some extra time in the morning with your partner-LOL. This afternoon the Moon will be squaring the Saturn/Uranus opposition making us feel like we want to shake up the status quo (exact at 11:40am & 2:51pm EST). Later the Moon will sextile dreamy Neptune (exact at 8:36pm EST). This is a good night to catch some live music, and do something creative or romantic.
(Thurs 2/19)- The Moon will transition into hardworking Capricorn (exact at 8:25am EST) after a long void of course from (8:37pm) the night before. Activities that are favored during Moon in Capricorn are: business endeavors, work, goal setting, public ambition, and tradition. The Moon will make a favorable sextile to the Sun (exact at 10:43am EST) helping us to feel supported in our endeavors. It will then have its monthly conjunction with Pluto (exact at 2:06pm) making our emotions intensify.
(Fri 2/20)- Friday is astrologically the quietest day of the week! Pay close attention to any dreams you may have tonight…
(Sat 2/21)- The Moon will be in a long void of course cycle for most of the day (between 4:01am-9:06pm EST) before it moves into the futuristic sign of Aquarius (exact at 9:06pm). This is therefore, not a good day to start anything new or to be making any big decisions. Activities that are favored during Moon in Aquarius are: social endeavors, friendship, humanitarian efforts, politics, inventing, and New Age ideologies. The Sun will sextile Pluto very early in the morning (3:03am) that will set the stage for physiological insights and possibly prophetic or intense dreams.
