ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF MARCH 1-7 2021.




MON MARCH 1.

Today begins with the Moon in Libra, trine Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn in Aquarius. This combination along with harmonious contacts to the North and South nodes can see some fated energetic shifts occurring.  There is emphasis on communications today, and we can be doing our best to emphasize all that is positive. There can be something surprising, unexpected, or refreshing about channels of communication opening up now (Moon/Mercury/Jupiter.)  Or there’s simply a whole lot of communications to manage to the point of being excessive or too much at once. I know it’s redundant to say, but everything really has been a lot to take in, and we are now getting out of Mercury's shadow phase and picking up steam once again. There can be an air of generosity, hopefulness, expansiveness, and adventure today, and an emphasis on the enjoyment of people, good aesthetics, good vibes, and harmonization over division. With a lunar trine to Saturn as well, it appears new foundations can be taking root socially, and/or interpersonally. The Moon also makes a sextile to Juno in Sagittarius, and this can see supportive contacts with others forming in the background or foreground that offer a lot of space, freedom, personal growth, mutual good will, and consciousness expansion.  It could be that there’s some positive, stabilizing news today, or evidence of progress. Because these aspects include Mercury, those of you in the markets or crypto might have reason to be mildly optimistic this week, as Mercury and Jupiter will once again perfect in conjunction midweek at 17 degrees. So if there’s been a dip, there could either be a modest climb or in the very least, a stabilization. Best case scenario, would be both of course. Perhaps Doge will start getting back on it’s feet after some challenges. Venus sextile Uranus is shaking things up socially, interpersonally, financially and/or creatively, and in some ways this can feel like a breath of fresh air, along with a lot of shocks, surprises, spontaneous happenings, changes, and unpredictability. It’s a liberating influence, with the Sun conjunct Neptune, with Venus to eventually follow at the end of the week, there can be a loosening of inhibitions and restrictions that can be somewhat freeing and cathartic. It’s possible today could be a day of information overload, and there could be a need to focus or balance simultaneous happenings at once. Evening time see’s the Moon in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn and this could see some interpersonal intensity culminating, or an intense atmosphere with larger than life feeling implications or just a compulsivity and intensity around certain interactions or happenings. Fortunately, if things are intense in any type of gnarly way, there appears to be a lot of support available through relationships, friendships and community, and it appears that some major transformations are occurring that look to be beneficial.


TUES MARCH 2.

This morning begins on an intense note with the Moon in Libra squaring Pluto, along with asteroid of health, Hygeia. There may be a need to catch balance amidst a lot of intense happenings all at once, mentally, spiritually, and physically, it’s possible that even amidst positive changes there’s also much that is overwhelming. The Moon enters do or die Scorpio at 12:38 PM PST, to trine Venus in Pisces and oppose Uranus in Taurus. This can see things get pretty wild. Perhaps in a really unexpectedly positive way, but also possibly amidst a lot of other things that are going on as well, which could be pretty destabilizing. The Full Moon in Virgo may have seen a lot of details to manage, improvements to be made, loose ends to clear away, or a crisis to be dealt with, and the dust from all of this may still be settling. The Moon goes on to square Saturn as well, which could see some challenges, delays, blockages, or issues of timing. This can see a need for resilience and patience. The Moon goes on to trine the Sun in etheric Pisces as well this evening, and this can see a subtle spotlight on relationships to others that may serve as sort of a quiet lighthouse or beacon of hope or good vibes in the background during what appears to be some challenging or destabilizing circumstances or changes being navigated. There may be some really positive, unusual dynamics quietly developing or holding space in the back round that have a certain resilience to them. The Moon opposition Uranus can see a lot of restlessness as well, and these configurations can bring out some random or unpredictable streaks in people. With Venus sextile Uranus as well, there’s definitely a desire to shake things up, and these configurations can see people more willing to take positive risks. With Mars in the final and most urgent degree of earthy Taurus, and due to enter talkative, curious and multitasking Gemini tomorrow evening, this can see a push to get areas around communications on a more solid, and rooted footing. Definitely an emphasis in this coming Mars cycle on new social, interpersonal foundations being laid down, a sort of building of bridges. With Mars still trine Pluto and now in the most pressing degree, there’s still a powerful, driven and instinctual drive towards a controlled expansion. The Scorpio lunation can see things being shaken up in a potentially very pleasing way that makes any challenges going on somehow easier to endure and provides the motivation and emotional resilience to endure them. 


WED MARCH 3. 

Today see’s the Moon in instinctual and heavy breathing Scorpio trine the Sun, Venus, and Neptune in Pisces, opposite Uranus, and square Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn in Aquarius. This day looks rather eventful, nd with the Sun also conjunct Pisces, there is a definite, but very low key emphasis on relationships to others in the picture. There can be a lot of intensity in the atmosphere and some big or surprising developments or shocking announcements. Because the Moon is in secretive Scorpio trine the Sun and Venus in low key, behind the scenes Pisces for the first portion of the day, much of this can be occurring below the radar or under the surface somehow, or simply in a quiet or kind of private way, but nonetheless things look relatively exciting. It’s possible that walls are dissolving here in some fashion or other, and there could be something radical, exciting, or invigorating about this somehow. It looks like a very eventful, or at least impactful, exciting day, and there may be some pot stirring communications or a desire to break through walls or dissolve barriers, blockages or inhibitions, or to push something through. Conversely, (or simultaneously) there could be some tensions or challenges around doing that, but the Moon in Scorpio is driven. Mars enters curious and communicative Gemini at 7:30 PM PST, placing an emphasis on plate spinning, multitasking, networking, communications, short distance travel, the written and spoken word, neighbors, siblings, and/or things going on in the local environment , for the duration of this Mars cycle. This evening can see a larger than life, highly idealistic atmosphere that could also be rather privately intense in the sense that we can experience our feelings, instincts or desires very vividly. Communications or what we see/read/say or hear can be playing a part in this. There can be a lot to reflect upon and the Moon in Scorpio trine the Sun and Neptune in Pisces can see a somewhat retiring, reflective, or private energy to the evening, either a focus on solitary pursuits or activities or private conversations with others. Digesting certain changes going on under the surface, internally, and/or between ourselves and others looks to be a primary focus of the Scorpio lunation, as Mars sets off emboldened to initiate new conversations or embark into new territory locally or even commercially, and to set down new longterm foundations and expand territory or delve more deeply into new, exciting, or adventurous areas of conversation or communication initiatives. 


THURS MARCH 4.

This morning see’s the Moon in Scorpio sextile Pluto and trine Neptune, while slowly strengthening an opposition to Mars in Gemini. This can see something make impact, with sensitivity and intensity both heightened simultaneously, it’s a sensitive, and powerful energy that flexes a “soft power.” The early morning hours can see walls being penetrated, or in the very least a strong desire to penetrate them. The Mercury/Jupiter conjunction perfects today at 17 degrees, so as I mentioned in Monday’s math, if you’re in stonks or crympto, pay attention to what’s going on in the markets today. In the afternoon, the Moon enters adventurous and outgoing Sagittarius, opposite Mars in inquisitive Gemini. This can see a desire to enter new territory, and to build bridges interpersonally, financially, commercially, creatively or otherwise, -and a desire to dissolve barriers or blockages to doing so, with the Sun conjunct Venus and Neptune.  The Moon also trines Chiron in Aries, and goes on to square Venus in Pisces, which further emphasizes interactions with others, or creative or financial endeavors.  There could be a need to bridge worlds or adapt to new schedules or find some sort of workable compromise between competing schedules, activities, differing styles, paces, cultures, tastes, or temperaments. Moon square Venus can see a highly idealistic and adventurous atmosphere, and the trine to Chiron can see something having us feeling optimistic or boosting our morale or confidence. There’s a healing element to this. A lunar sextile to Saturn in Aquarius later on can see something stabilize or subtly begin to prove itself, and this can feel reassuring, as with the Moon square Venus and an emphasis on Pisces, faith and belief is a large component of whatever we have going on now. Any signs that it’s not misplaced can increase confidence and optimism levels. The coming configurations could place focus on a desire to make sure that pure faith is not being misplaced and that something hoped for has actual substance behind it (and isn’t just a fucking mirage.) It’s possible that over the next few days, reassuring signs can emerge that something actually does hold weight and have substance behind it. Also, it could be that our faith and belief, and desire to focus on all that is good actually potentiates and manifests substance or makes something more concrete and real. Something you can touch and hold in your hand. Conversely, a negative, doubtful, or pessimistic outlook could impede something that actually does have substance and merit behind it, so fortify your faith, believe you deserve what you desire, and place it into all you desire to make manifest. Believe in it, nurture it, align with it energetically, -and try not to get into your own way. 


THE WEEKEND. 


FRI MARCH 5.

Today see’s the Moon in Sagittarius squaring the Sun, Venus, and Neptune in Pisces, and form sextile to Mercury and Jupiter in Aquarius. This can see increases in idealism and optimism, although the lunar square to Neptune still leaves a little room for uncertainty or doubt, it’s hard to ignore things that make us feel hopeful, good, positive and optimistic. So don’t then. Although, there could be some wrestling to do with “too good to be true” type feelings, it’s also important to recognize good where it really is actually present and to just acknowledge it and stand in some awe of it. Drink it in, and really acknowledge it. It’s there. This could relate to finances, relationships, creative endeavors, social or community endeavors or movements, or all of the above. Feed into the power of all that is beautiful. There can be a buoyant optimism and a sort of bounce to these configurations, but also a feeling of walking in a dream that is a little bit surreal. A lunar conjunction to Juno can see relationships to others playing a supportive role in this, and there can be some inspiring energies. There can also be confusion, perhaps some longing, but overall, things look promising as long as we emphasize what is good and truly believe in it.  Early evening see’s the Moon sextile Mercury in Aquarius and this can see some exciting communications or something we hear, see, say, or read really stokes our optimism and enthusiasm levels and puts some wind in our sails. This could be positive feedback or a surprise communication, but whatever it is it looks like people are in good spirits. A semi square between Venus and Pluto indicate feeling intensely around something, and there may be subtle obstacles, or frustrations. There may be a need to curb some obsessive tendencies, and funnel them into constructive efforts, patience, and persistence. The day and evening look largely positive, and although much is happening in the ethers, or in fantasies or big sky thinking, once we hit the Capricorn lunation, this could see some changes begin to transpire in the real, and motions to actually put in effort to make something happen or manifest in real life, as opposed to just entertaining mere hopes. 


SAT MARCH 6. 

Today see’s the Moon void of course in Sagittarius. This can see a slight pause, perhaps taking time to reflect, dream, think big, distill any doubts, and plan for our next moves. The Moon enters pragmatic Capricorn at 6:20 PM PST, where it trines Uranus in Taurus, seaisquares to Mercury and Jupiter, and a quincunx to Mars. This can see some nervous tension, but also a desire to see something happen-nay-to make it happen, with our own efforts and initiatives. A lunar square to Chiron in Aries could suggest a feeling of being a bit challenged or perhaps vulnerable, doubtful in our abilities, or under confident in how realistic something actually is that we might be entertaining thoughts about. But a lunar trine to Uranus is prone to modest risk taking-but only if it seems like it will result in real, actualized results. If it’s a little challenging, it could only increase the will. But if it’s just a mirage or a false hope, it’s demoralizing. The planets in Pisces however, emphasize faith, belief, and surrender to something bigger than ourselves, something eternal, something unfuckwithable. This sort of faith can accomplish seemingly impossible feats, if doubt in something is transmuted and distilled into faith in ourselves and in an intelligent and clever universe, some positive transformations can be made, one way or another, and we can make contact with something beautiful, both within and without. 


SUN MARCH 7.

Today see’s the Moon in keep it real Capricorn sextile Venus in dreamboat Pisces while trine Uranus in Taurus, and square Chiron in Aries. There could still be some lingering doubts or underconfidence, but these configurations can see some interesting, surprising, unusual, and pleasing things happening interpersonally, creatively, socially, or financially. Today looks pretty lit to be honest. This could be good for finances, love, creativity, pleasure, the arts, and general all around pleasantness. Feet on the ground, head in the clouds. I look at these configurations and I can hear Aesop Rock say “So I heard y’all wanna float”, because later on, the lunar square to Chiron relents and the Moon sextiles the Sun in Pisces as well. Perhaps something that we worried was too good to be true turns out to be just plain good, or we decide that doubting something any longer is useless and only killing the vibe. There could be some exciting or freeing changes and shifts happening under this mathscape, and ideals are highly activated here. Today could see some interesting synchronicities or some surprising feelings or exchanges with others. The ambitious Cap lunation could see a desire to make the most of idealistic and fantastical trends to bring some fantasies or creative inspiration down into reality and make the world and our experience of it more god damn beautiful. Late tonight, the Moon goes on to conjunct Pluto. This could see Monday get off to a focused and determined start. There’s something that’s really got our inspiration and motivation levels up here, and there’s a desire to keep the high vibes going to build and sustain momentum, slam some dunks, and get something real happening and established.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF FEB 22-28 2021




MON FEB 22.

Today see’s the Moon in Cancer trine the Sun in Pisces, sextile the Sun in Uranus, and square Chiron. This can see some unusual or surprising feelings come to the surface, and we may be seeking new emotional outlets, and emotional and psychic refreshment. It’s like beating the dust out of an old blanket and shaking out the dust bunnies. This can see some interesting psychological, spiritual, or emotional revelations, and there may be an element of vulnerability to this, as there is a sort of attempt to liberate ourselves from fears or old wounds that may be holding us back from reaching new levels of fulfillment, growth, healing, and awareness. A new spiritual bandwidth is trying to push itself through and it’s becoming nearly impossible not to grow, mentally and spiritually, and the more we ignore the call towards deeper meaning, the more uncomfortable it becomes. With Mercury now direct, and closer to Saturn than the benefics, there may be a bit of “stiffness”, inhibition, challenges, pessimism, or fear to work through, but there is also a sort of maturity and determination to keep going, even if there has been a slow down or certain challenges to progress during Mercury’s final week retrograde last week. The Moon in emo Cancer later goes on to trine mystical Neptune in the early evening hours, and the can see a lot of compassion, spirituality, and even some almost telepathic connections. The trine between Mars and Pluto will perfect exactly tomorrow, at 25 degrees, so a push towards major, and deep transformation is really culminating towards a breakthrough. With Mars square Venus, and Venus gearing up to change signs soon, these transformations can involve Venus related matters (relationships/partnerships/money/creativity/beauty/the arts/values/self worth/etc). This can see a push towards a more spiritual dimension in regards to these matters, and a desire for deeper meaning, deeper values, and deeper connections that nourish the psyche, nourish the soul, and help us transcend the material or superficial and help bring aspects of a more idyllic and cosmic reality down to the earth plane. With the Sun in etheric Pisces sextile Uranus in Taurus, a theme of “spiritual awakening” can be felt, and the more nuanced, subtle, psychological and soulful realities of existence can be very apparent and more difficult to deny. This can also see a radical compassion and an opening up of the feelings, an exploration of the psyche, and there can be more open mindedness to what has perhaps been previously dismissed as too “woo woo”, “out there”, or unusual to take seriously. The soul, the Universe, God, the unspeakable galactic funk, (regardless what your name for it is,)-the more spiritual dimensions of reality demand to be acknowledged. 


TUES FEB 23.

This morning begins with the Moon in sensitive Cancer trine Neptune and opposite Pluto. This can see some intense feelings around something, or perhaps some poignant, or compelling emotional and spiritual experiences. There’s certainly a lot of depth of feeling and compassion to these configurations, and the intuition can be highly attuned. As the morning wears on into afternoon, the Moon makes a sextile to Mars in Taurus, which is perfecting it’s powerful trine to Pluto in Capricorn today at 25 degrees.  This can see a powerful drive towards action that can feel emotionally and spiritually compelling and revitalizing, and there may be an increased motivation towards a deeper authenticity, and making something happen or seeing something through. Perhaps certain feelings or realities that have been buried, denied, occulted, or submerged come more fully into the light of conscious awareness, and this can see some pretty profound shifts occurring that can be emotionally and/or spiritually invigorating, and infuse us with a sense of motivation, perhaps to fix or improve something, that may have been somewhat flagging or poorly understood. These configurations can see an increase in self assurance, drive, decisiveness and assertiveness around something, but is balanced nicely with gentleness and sensitivity to others feelings. It can be a fruitful energy, creatively, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. The lunar opposition to Pluto can see some compelling, investigative forces at work, and there’s a clear push for inner and outer transformation. A feeling of “something has to change.” This rather intense configuration can be channelled constructively to facilitate some pretty awesome results or breakthroughs. Mercury, now direct, drifts further away from Saturn and closer and closer to Jupiter once again, and the Sun and Venus drift closer together, so as the week wears on, optimism and new hope can begin to pick back up, and the sense that our world is positively expanding that was felt previously as the Mercury/Jupiter conjunction perfected a few weeks ago, can once again be recaptured, as Mercury slowly but surely picks up steam. Tomorrow, the Moon enters charismatic and theatrical Leo, and the Leo lunation can see some unexpected surprises, or can see ourselves or others behave out of character or in unexpected ways. Perhaps some radical changes are being considered. There can be some rebelliousness, -and anywhere that there are authoritative, pushy, or overly controlling forces, there will be those who challenge this, who will stand up for themselves and others, and challenge the legitimacy of said “authority.” This can see an air of controversy brewing, but also a lot of courage in the face of challenges. Today can see an energetic drive to push through to make positive reforms that are more in alignment with our deepest values. 


WED FEB 24.

Today see’s the Moon in fun seeking and playfully competitive Leo, in trine to Chiron in Aries, squaring Uranus, and opposite Mercury and Saturn. This is an interesting bunch of configurations, and there can be courage and rebelliousness in the face of obstacles or oppressive forces. The lunar opposition to Saturn can see some potential for feeling lonely or cut off from others, duty bound, or restricted somehow. The lunar/Mercury opposition can see some indecisiveness or self doubt,  where the lunar square to Uranus can see an emotionally erratic and somewhat exciting atmosphere of anticipation. There’s a rebelliousness to these configurations. Freedom of speech or it’s lack, and/or a feeling of being judged, condemned or just ignored, overlooked, or dismissed, or just feeling somewhat inhibited comes to mind with the Moon/Mercury/Saturn configurations. Perhaps it’s just that certain circumstances feel somewhat limiting or constraining. But the lunar trine to Chiron thankfully brings a healing resilience, courage and compassion to the table. Interestingly, the asteroid Hygeia, the asteroid of health, who presides over maintaining a healthy relationship between the body and the soul, is now retrograde in Leo, and the Moon in Leo makes a strong conjunction to this asteroid today, which can see these matters highlighted somehow. The Moon goes on to make an opposition to Jupiter in Aquarius as well, and as this opposition grows in strength this can see an inner battle over different drives and impulses, but these configurations clearly exemplify a desire for change, to shake something up, but perhaps wrestling a bit with how to go about doing that exactly. There can be a growing enthusiasm, and some shocks or surprises under these configurations as well, perhaps even some kind of epiphanies. It’s a quirky and unusual atmosphere to say the least.  The emphasis on oppositions here under the Leo lunation highlights a need to bring balance to areas that have been out of balance. If we’ve made a lot of progress in some area, or even just taken in a lot of new and surprising information, perhaps it’s come at the expense of one or several other areas, and there’s a need to get on top of things or better integrate the changes and new information, so that things don’t spiral out of control or throw us totally off balance. The need to get more organized and grounded will certainly be highlighted at the Full Moon in detail oriented Virgo on Saturday. The Leo lunation can see a whole lot going on, a whole lot to take in, and there can be a nervous excitement that can perhaps feel a bit overwhelming to the nervous system. So many changes have been navigated in recent weeks , so much has been learned, and there’s certainly been a lot to adapt to. There’s a need to balance different polarities within the self and within the structure of our lives that can be highlighted here, in order to adapt to new and surprising things, and for the positive changes we’ve been pushing towards to really take root. 


THURS FEB 25.

This morning see’s Venus move into mystical, dreamy, sensitive and imaginative Pisces at 5:11 AM PST. The Moon in Leo is still opposite Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn, so there’s evidence here that something has certainly given us a WHOLE lot to think about. Midmorning, the lunar/Saturn opposition relents. We also see a lunar trine to Juno in Sagittarius as well, which can see supportive relationship contacts that can help to boost our morale, courage, and sense of optimism. With Venus now in romantic and dreamy Pisces, the Sun/Venus conjunction will increase in strength, and this brings relationships and our desire for beauty, pleasure, love, and all things Venus (and Neptune) ruled, more under the spotlight.  It’s possible that certain epiphanies or new information that’s come to light this week has had something to do with our relationships to others, and maybe something learned or revealed has induced a sort of shift. The Moon goes on to square Mars, and oppose Venus as it get’s into the later degrees of Leo, accentuating the Venus/Mars square. This can see something of significance unfolding interpersonally. The Mars/Venus square will relent in a matter of days, but this tension between the two planets of love and passion have worked to facilitate some sort of breakthrough. The coming days can see a sort of softening of boundaries, a letting down of walls in some way. There can be a need to integrate all that’s been learned or exchanges that have made some sort of impression upon us. The lunar square to Mars can see some impatience, a desire for action, perhaps some irritability, stubbornness, or even intolerance, but this energy can be easily channelled into creative or even physical activities if some self control is positively harnessed. A lunar quincunx to Pluto can see a sort of obsessive fixation on something and there can be a need to slow down and intentionally cultivate some objectivity or detachment. There’s certainly evidence of some passion here, and this weekend can see an organizational effort towards making concrete changes as we integrate new emotional or spiritual realities. 


THE WEEKEND.


FRI FEB 26-SUN FEB 28.

Friday see’s the Moon in practical and detail oriented Virgo, in opposition to the Sun and Venus in Pisces, trine Uranus in Taurus, and square Mars, now in late Taurus and due to head into multitasking Gemini next Wednesday.  There can be a lot to take in here, and much of what’s been absorbed has prompted a desire to make physical and practical changes in the real world. These are some very physical and mystical configurations. There can be a desire here to get organized, and stay grounded amidst an ongoing background of a more dreamy and spiritual reality that is very retiring, private, quiet, sensitive, and solitary. The inner fantasy life, and the polarity/synergy between the spiritual/psychological and the physical/practical is very highlighted under the Virgo lunation. The relationship between the psyche and the body. Our mental state, and our reality. Virgo presides over elimination, purification, and simplification. Distilling complex universal truths down to their most basic components. Virgo also presides over health, routines, fitness, diet, regiments, self improvement, organization, work, service to others, and also, -our furry friends. The lunar trine towards Uranus can see a desire to make some radical shifts, and the perfection of the Mars/Pluto trine perfecting this week placed on emphasis on an ongoing process of positive reform and a push towards more authenticity. With Venus having shifted sign, and the Mars/Venus square relenting tomorrow, while the Moon opposes the Sun and Venus, it’s possible that certain others have inspired us further on our evolutionary path and given us something to strive towards or hope for, or in the very least, instilled in us some motivation that assists us in tapping into our own capacities for growth, change, and evolution. There may be a need to strike a balance here between our own needs and the needs of others, or between practical realities and our need for more reflection and meditation this weekend, as there is much going on internally and externally that requires integration and adaptation. Catching up with ourselves.


SAT FEB 27.

Today we see the Full Moon culminate in Virgo at 12:26 AM PST, so a little bit after witching hour. Along with the classic Moon/Sun opposition we also see the opposition to Venus and trine to Uranus. So this Full Moon can bring with it some interpersonal realizations or epiphanies that can give us much to contemplate or prepare for. In some ways, much of this may have been rather unexpected, and may have emerged quite out of the blue. There may be a need to catch up to these new realizations, as they may be having quite an impact, even if just on a subtle, metaphysical level. As Full Moons are about endings or a closing of chapters, this can see a release of patterns, habits, routines, even ruts we’ve been in, that no longer serve us or reflect our ideals or what we long to actualize in our lives. Wrapping up of loose ends. The Moon goes on to make an opposition to Neptune which can necessitate a need for reflection, compassion, faith, and release, and in some ways, it can feel that certain boundaries or walls are in a process of dissolving, perhaps walls we didn’t even realize had been erected to begin with. Conversely there can be an element of longing or sadness, or uncertainty. Desires that want to be fulfilled but circumstances could be in the way. Perhaps it's just a matter of time and patience and pushing through. Venus/Mars square also relents today, and Mercury has also loosened it’s tensions with Uranus which was rather jangling to the nervous system. Slowly but surely it can feel that certain tensions are somewhat dissolving and settling down. The Moon goes on to trine Pluto as well, and this combination of aspects can see something make a deep impression upon us, and we can be drawn towards something or someone very unusual, perhaps spiritual or artistic. It can see some positive transformations unfolding as well, or there is an intense process underway that can be somewhat all consuming. There's just something intense AF about all of this and everything can be a lot to take in. The Moon throws in a trine to Mars in Taurus as well, and this can see our passions positively engaged, with an action packed and driven element to the day. Our ideals can be highly stimulated here, whether spiritually, creatively, romantically or otherwise. Pushing something through to completion or a breakthrough point.


SUN FEB 28.

This morning begins with the Moon in the final degrees of Virgo, trine both Mars and Pluto. This can see a very focused drive and a very pronounced “getting your shit together” energy. Something can be profoundly motivating to us, and it’s possible for some that perhaps it’s another person who has inspired us, or there is someone or something we care about dearly that we can feel very driven and determined about. Around 11:17 AM PST the Moon heads into relationship oriented Libra, which see’s the Moon hold a trine to Mars in late Taurus, and Saturn in Aquarius, which can signify the building of new and promising interpersonal foundations. Venus also heads into sextile with Uranus today as well, and this can definitely see something new transpiring in the area of relationships with others, and all things Venus ruled. There can be something highly spiritual, unconventional, creative, and very refreshing about interactions that could be getting off the ground now. There can be some really unexpected but pleasant developments that we really didn’t see coming, and also a trend towards liberation. Something or someone can really be inspiring us to grow spiritually, emotionally, or psychologically, and to be more free somehow. It’s like some kind of walls are crumbling and letting in some really beautiful light, inspiration, and warmth. A lunar opposition to Chiron suggests that in some ways we have to challenge our own self protective tendencies, but also muster the courage to stand up for ourselves in the face of pressure. Perhaps there’s a wariness of being wounded, and/or a need to challenge our people pleasing tendencies. There's a certain vulnerability to these aspects, along with a desire to protect and defend the vulnerable. Late evening see’s the Moon in Libra trine both Mercury and Saturn, so it looks like new channels of communication are being more firmly established between ourselves and others. This get’s March off to an interesting and optimistic, somewhat exciting and liberating start, and we can feel our world being expanded somehow via our connection to and solidarity with others, and/or communication endeavors. This actually looks potentially really interesting and beautiful.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF FEB 15-21 2021




MON FEB 15.

This morning begins with the Moon in pioneering Aries conjunct Chiron, sextile Mercury and Jupiter in Aquarius, while trine Juno in Sagittarius. This can see a lot of optimism, compassion, humanitarianism, -and perhaps some big or exciting news for some. There can also be a lot of communications, and an independent and self directed atmosphere drives the day. The Moon goes on to sextile Venus in Aquarius as well,  and this can really see some pleasant, if rather unexpected developments socially, financially, or interpersonally. This kicks the week off on a very optimistic note, with a feeling that a seed we have planted around the New Moon is showing signs of promise and expanding our possibilities and horizons. With Mars trine Pluto, there is still a strong push towards transformation and a whole lot of determination and concentrated effort around something that requires consistency, patience, commitment, and dedication for the long haul. This aspect combined with the recent New Moon in Aquarius may have seen people reach new milestones, and in some area of life, the bar has been raised, conditions have been improved, new powers have been unlocked, -but with this also comes new levels of responsibility.  With Mercury conjunct Venus, Jupiter and Saturn, something has been pushed to a higher level, and this higher level now attempts to establish itself, take root, so it can continue to grow in value over time.  The Mercury/Saturn conjunction will not perfect the way that it did with Venus and Jupiter, so rather than being a dour or restrictive/limiting influence, it is more one of stabilization and getting something firmly established. Today can see some very pleasant and beneficial interactions, conversations, news, feedback, etc, and a boost in courage, optimism, and confidence. There can be a bit of a fast pace. Relations can be overall congenial, beneficial and supportive. However, the Saturn/Uranus square is also perfected now, and this influence will be ongoing. This can see others in separate camps over issues. People need to watch out for arrogance. When you treat people like they are fools and they are beneath you, you fail to reach them, and further entrench division, fuel divisiveness, and encourage inhumanity. Make an extra effort to humanize others and you will come closer to unity and more importantly, inner peace. This influence can also see some restlessness, and of course, the more obvious manifestation of authority attempting to clamp down on any perceived rebelliousness. A lot of rapid changes can be happening, and this Mercury retrograde has given everyone quite a lot to digest. Most of us are exiting this retrograde having gone up a level somehow, and by the time it goes direct on Saturday, it will be easy to look back on our progress and see how far we have come from where we started. This being the final week of Mercury retrograde, there is still a lot of adjusting and adapting to do to the new levels and radical changes we’ve achieved in whatever area of life in our personal whole house natal chart that has been hosting this powerful Aquarius stellium. In some area of life, you should be patting yourself on the back for a job well done. Congratulations. You did it. Whatever “it” is, now all you have to do is maintain it. A certain level of integration and organization around all of this newness could be necessary, a sort of “settling in” to our new role or the new levels we’ve reached and plan to surpass. Pisces season is just around the corner, and may assist everyone in being able to do just that. Adapt. Acclimatize. Integrate. Late evening see’s a lunar square to Pluto, which can intensify feelings around all the changes we’ve been making around money, relationships, self worth, goals, friendships, social networking, and community.


TUES FEB 16.

Today see’s the Moon in Aries sextile the Sun in Aquarius while squaring up to Pluto and conjunct Uranus. This can see some surprising reveals, shocks, or something can come to light that’s been submerged, repressed, or brewing under the surface for a while. Conversely, this is like a little "reboot" period, that can see some improvements to how we go about our goals. There’s an intense and penetrating quality to the Moon/Pluto square that can see some compulsiveness and impulsivity, but a sort of obsessive drive to push through radical changes and reach new levels of self liberation and actualization of our goals. The lunar conjunction to Uranus forms in the late afternoon as the Moon heads closer to Taurus. This can see a restlessness, willfulness, quirkiness, and growing desire for change and excitement, and perhaps a desire to reach new levels of productivity. With Mars also trine Pluto, this is an extremely driven energy, and again, our goals can be very highlighted here. The lunar conjunction to Uranus while squaring Pluto can create a rather unpredictable environment and there can be some extremes to contend with, but these configurations can also be surprisingly constructive and help us discover or unlock gifts or inner resources or new levels of genius or imagination we didn’t even know we had. "Reboot" is a word that comes strongly to mind. Around 7 PM PST, the Moon enters earthy and physical Taurus. The Taurus lunation will highlight a concerted effort and push for change, and the intensity of the drive behind this can create a lot of "pressure cooker" vibes, as there is a lot to adapt to and it’s currently an “adapt as you go” process. But overall, with Mars sextile Neptune and trine (extremely thorough) Pluto, it looks set to be a surprisingly smooth transition, even if the Mercury Rx has produced hiccups, delays, tensions, or challenges. By the time March arrives, we can feel very accomplished, and perhaps even a little in awe of all that we have transformed and even rectified in such a condensed period of time. For now, we are still in the thick of changes, the dust still hasn’t settled, and Mars still has work to do to get us to the next finish line of our own personal triathlon. As far as relationships and areas of love are concerned, Venus and Mars have been in tension and the Aquarius stellium has had everyone so focused on their own personal revolutions and reaching new levels of growth, that it’s been a largely impersonal environment that has required a lot of space, independence, and freedom to focus intently on pushing something through to a new level. Things won’t remain detached and impersonal forever, and although the Aquarius stellium has demanded a lot of everyone, the growth spurts and realignments it has facilitated have also been… pretty fucking significant. There will be time to connect more with our emotions as we move more deeply into Pisces season. For now, the push for radical uplevelling continues, and the tail end of this Mercury retrograde, and the remainder of the Mars in Taurus cycle is ensuring we reach a new pinnacle that actually sticks, -and creates a solid foundation and fertile soil from which to grow from and build off of. Such an intensive process requires a lot of space and room to experiment, individuate, and restructure.


WED FEB 17.

Today see’s the Moon in stubborn Taurus, conjunct rebellious Uranus, and squaring Mercury, Saturn, and Jupiter in Aquarius. Late evening throws in the anticipated lunar conjunction to Mars, so energy (and perhaps tension) can build throughout the day. Plans can go a little askew today. These configurations can be seeking excitement and change on the one hand, but also prompting a desire to be lazy and indulgent on the other. It can be hard to completely relax but can also be hard to completely sink our teeth into tasks, as energy levels can be sporadic, or there could be unusual interruptions to the expected flow. There can be some shocks or surprises via communications or something unexpected can create detours from our usual routines. This can also be an attempt to adapt and to “nail down” routines that are completely new to us, in order to reach a place of stability within a long process of adaptation, transition and change. In some cases, there can be blockages or challenges that prompt innovation, and we can be working with a new or unfamiliar pallet or stepping out of our comfort zone in some fashion. As the day wears on into evening, an action oriented energy can be growing, and for some there can be some irritability, impatience, or frustration to navigate. Mercury tends to be a bit more mischievous in the weeks that it stations either retrograde or direct, and in this instance, powerful breakthroughs are being facilitated that require a dedicated effort, and patience, determination, and “stick-to-itiveness” will pay off.  There could be indecisiveness and a sort of scattered energy to the day, and a lot of changes within the area of communications or even social media to adapt to or navigate. Tomorrow can see more decisiveness and can see some interesting moves taken interpersonally, socially, financially, or in regards to investments or even creative projects. There can be a lot of nervous tension or pressures facilitating activities and dynamics now, but with the Moon and Mars syncing up to both trine Pluto tomorrow, another breakthrough point is nigh, another level is reached or hurdle overcome. 


THURS FEB 18.

The Sun makes it’s annual ingress into sensitive and intuitive Pisces today. Meanwhile, the Moon in “gotta have it” Taurus is conjunct Mars and squaring up to Venus in Aquarius, while trine powerful Pluto and sextile day dreamy Neptune. This can see some powerful instinctive hunches, psychic impressions, or intuitive experiences in regards to relationships, money, investments, or creative projects. This can also see us more receptive, sensitive, and impressionable to aesthetics, beauty, sights, sounds, smells, tastes, serendipities, omens, and things going on generally within our environment or elsewhere.  The lunar/Mars/Venus/Pluto/Neptune contacts can see a drive towards things of beauty, creativity, and pleasure, and there can be a desire to beautify or enhance things, -or make something more ideal somehow. It’s also possible that we can be more sensitive to interpersonal dynamics or certain walls between ourselves and others, and there can be a desire to begin to entertain the possibility of inviting more opportunities for contact if there has been any sort of estrangement between ourselves and others during all these massive shifts we’ve been navigating. These aspects, along with the Sun’s ingress into Pisces, can see a gentle nudge into the feelings and suggest that we begin the process of intentionally creating more time and space to connect with our emotions, inner world and psychic life, in preparation for dissolving barriers that inhibit more emotionally, psychologically and spiritually enriching connections with others that feed and inspire the soul. The stellium in Aquarius has spread everyone rather thinly, and although much has been accomplished in the outer spheres and in regards to setting a sea worthy ship to sail into the future and break new ground, -the soul is weary and in need of nourishment, replenishment, rest, recovery, inspiration. The nerves are frayed, overstimulated, and in need of soothing, and the heart hungers for contact with something transcendental, intangible, beautiful, divine. Something or someone idyllic to long after to inspire us further along the path of our own becoming. A safe and tranquil space to melt into and seek sanctuary, beauty, peace, food for the soul, and a little taste of infinity/divinity amidst all of the change.  The Moon and Mars form an exact, perfected conjunction at 22 degrees of Taurus around 4:15 PM PST while in trine to Pluto, and this can see an increased determination and zeroing in on something we want to make happen so bad that we can taste it. The ideals, dreams, and fantasies around whatever this is can be fueling our determination even more, and there can be something about whatever this is that seems just out of reach, fantastical, beautiful, unobtainable, or impossible enough to challenge us and keep us from getting complacent, but realistic and realizable enough to keep us motivated and inspired without being totally demoralized or disillusioned. The rules of attraction and manifestation are hard at work here in these configurations. This can see a certain intentionality around getting into vibrational alignment with whatever fantastical dreamboat or other that we have our sights set on.


THE WEEKEND 


FRI FEB 19-SUN FEB 21.

Friday see’s the Moon enter talkative and inquisitive Gemini, squaring the Sun in sensitive Pisces, and forming trines to Mercury, Saturn, and Jupiter in Aquarius, while sextile Chiron in courageous Aries. This can see the weekend get off to a friendly, mentally active, and whimsical start, and there can be a feeling of having reached a new apex of accomplishment, or getting something new established, with a simultaneous feeling of “something’s missing” and wanting to add in whatever or whoever that “something” is into the equation- or simply wanting to rest or seek mental refreshment, entertainment, and escape. I get the image of a mime successfully managing to spin 2 plates in a stable fashion and wanting to add in a hackey sack that was set down previously back into the routine without dropping anything, but such ambitiousness may be tempered by a need to be more reflective or retiring. Tension between Venus and Mars can see some stir craziness and rebelliousness, but can also fuel a lot of creativity if channeled wisely. Today can see a focus on communications, curiosity, reading, writing, errands, short distance travels, interactions with siblings, neighbors, or people in our local environment. There can be a touching base with others we haven’t heard from in a while, or a hobby picked back up that's been set down. There’s a generous, expansive, inquisitive and optimistic atmosphere. A certain point of stability may have been reached after a lot of effort over the past few weeks. There may still be a lot of unknowns, or much work still ahead of us, but a lot of constructive progress has been made and there can be good news, congratulations, and good will to exchange, or much to catch up on with others or even just ourselves.


Saturday see’s a continuation of this theme, only the Moon throws in a loopy, punch drunk square to Neptune, which can see some confusion, or just a need to slow down and dream. Mercury also stations direct today at 4:52 PM PST, so it’s natural for it to feel as if the dust still needs to settle a bit to see things clearly. Along with the lunar trines to Mercury and Jupiter, Saturday adds the bonus addition of Venus, which can make for a sweet atmosphere with a focus on pleasure, playful banter, and stimulating exchanges. With the Sun in Pisces conjunct Venus in late degrees of Aquarius, the coming weeks will see us dipping our toes more into the realm of the feelings, as Venus will enter Pisces next Thursday. Saturday for the most part looks to be fun, indulgent, inquisitive, laid back, and pleasantly stimulating. 


Sunday begins with the Moon in Gemini and ends with the Moon in Cancer. The Sun in psychic Pisces begins a sextile with illuminating Uranus today, and this can see some leaps and advancements psychologically, spiritually, or in regards to healing modalities and reaching surprising insights or new levels of awareness. The first half of the day can be focused on communications, relationships with others, and enjoying pleasant pastimes with the Moon/Venus link making it easy to connect well with others. People can be charming, charmed, and very disarming. The Moon shifts into comfort seeking Cancer at 7:53 PM PST. This showcases a lunar trine to the Sun in boundary dissolving Pisces, a square to Chiron in Aries, while the Moon still holds a trine to Venus in late Aquarius. This can see some testing of the waters with new interactions, or testing new terrain in already established interactions, but either way, there’s something psychologically “new”, or in the very least, refreshing, about whatever is going on here, socially or interpersonally, and even if it’s all ultimately beneficial, which it appears to be, there’s still a layer of self preservation/self protectiveness there, with the lunar square to Chiron wary of anything that seems too good to be true or of being lead down a garden path.  Monday could see some unique and surprising insights and emotional and/or psychological revelations.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF FEB 8-14 2021

 



MON FEB 8.

This morning begins with the Moon in Capricorn trine Mars and Uranus in Taurus. This can see a determined, practical, -but experimental, unstable energy,- and it could be that we are making adjustments and adapting to something new.  With the Sun and Mercury Rx in Aquarius squaring Mars, we could be chipping away at some new initiative or approach and making revisions as we go along, and there could be some pressure to hurry up and adapt to changes but this could also be positive, constructive stress. It’s a very experimental but determined energy with a practical basis, and with Mercury going at a slower pace we could be catching up with ourselves and regaining motivation to keep the forward momentum going in regards to adapting to completely new things. There is a lot of innovation available in these configurations, and a steady drive to keep the momentum and positive expansion going, in spite of Mercury somewhat slacking off and creating some lags. The retrograde creates an opportunity to experiment with different approaches and find what works. With Mercury getting closer to both Jupiter and Venus this week to close in on a perfected conjunction, there can be positive developments unfolding socially, interpersonally, commercially, and/or financially. Venus in Aquarius is tightly conjunct both Jupiter and Saturn, so not only is there a positive expansion happening, but a desire to nail things down and set them on a longterm trajectory for success. Combining the innovative and experimental energy of Aquarius with the positive, lucky and expansive nature of Jupiter, the harmonizing, nurturing and creative nature of Venus, and the stable, consistent, and disciplined nature of Saturn will certainly see a flowering and blossoming of sorts, in some area of each of our lives. With Saturn involved, this thing has legs. Late afternoon/early eve, see’s the Moon conjunct Pluto in Cap and sextile Neptune in Pisces. This can see some impactful experiences that can stimulate our ideals around the new structures we are laying down. There is certainly a lot of motivation, and we can receive some powerful, intuitive or instinctual nudges around the moves we are making. These configurations can see some inspired actions, and there can be a lot of inspiration to achieve a goal or actualize an ideal. 



TUES FEB 9.

The Moon/Pluto conjunction perfects this morning around 9 AM PST.8. Saturn is not far behind and mid morning see’s the Moon conjoin Saturn. This could see some tunnel vision around a goal and a push to get something more established and to take something more seriously, (or get it taken more seriously.) This is a very intense, powerful, energy. As the Moon get’s into the later degrees of Capricorn it squares off to Uranus in Taurus. By 5 PM we see the Moon in the most urgent degree of Cap, 29 degrees, and there could be a push for some kind of breakthrough, an attempt to break through perhaps what has been our own personal glass ceiling. I can hear hear Jim Morrison singing “Break on through to the other side” as I look at these configurations. By 6 PM we see the Moon enter unconventional Aquarius, who roots for the underdog (the underdoge?). In the evening, beginning around 7 PM, the Moon begins a series of very positive and beneficial conjunctions, beginning with Venus in Aquarius. By 10 PM, the Moon adds in a conjunction to Jupiter and a sextile to Chiron. Needless to say, optimism and courage, faith, and self belief, or belief in something we are doing, can be growing. There can be some very powerful experiences. Under the Aquarius lunation, the next couple days, we can begin to see some fruits for our labors, and some reassuring signs around the trajectory we are on, however new, unpredictable, or unconventional it may be. These conjunctions can see a focus on pleasure, creativity, and enjoyment, and there can also be a focus on friendships, social networks, or even social media somehow, and things can feel larger than life or extremely magnified and turned up to 11. For those of you in stonks and investments, keep your eyes peeled, (particularly from the 11th-14th, when Mercury perfects it’s conjunction to Jupiter while conjunct Venus.) For now, we see the Moon, Venus, and Saturn all squaring up to Uranus, planet of shock, change, liberation, revolution, and unpredictability. Things are moving around, shifting, and consolidating. There can be a lot of ups and downs, as a lot of changes are unfolding, and it’s a rather liberating, exciting, and erratic influence. Interpersonally, people can need a lot of space and independence, and there can also be some new or rather unusual alliances forming, or just an unorthodox approach breathing new life into established interactions. Financially and in regards to practical endeavors, a whole lot of changes happening, and perhaps a lot of innovation and experimentation required. On a whole, there is a push for radical changes and to get something off the ground and established for the long haul. This lunation can require some grounding, as the Aquarius/Uranus influences can create a lot of nervous energy that needs to be discharged, so if you’re already a somewhat anxious person to begin with, take extra care to ground the body and sooth the nervous system, as these can be some rather unstable but exciting influences, perhaps a bit overstimulating to those with a more delicate nervous system. 


WED FEB 10.

Today see’s the Moon in excitable Aquarius conjunct Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, while square Uranus and sextile Chiron. There can be an increased focus on communications, commercial endeavors, relationships, trade and commerce, news, and a whole lot of back and forth. We could receive some surprising news, or beneficial deals that could have us in good spirits, and there can be an optimism and congeniality in the air. Although it’s a rather unpredictable atmosphere that could be causing us to innovate around certain challenges, there can also be a lot of cooperation and perhaps even assistance available from others, and there can be some mutually beneficial arrangements that are possible in this expansive and humanitarian atmosphere. Later in the afternoon, the Moon conjuncts the Sun in Aquarius, while squaring Mars in Taurus. With both the Sun and Moon squaring up to Mars, this can be a rather high strung, action oriented atmosphere with a push to make things happen NOW, so watch out for stubbornness and/or being impatient with yourself or others. Positively, this can see a catalyst for action that really gets things done, and there can be a team effort in some cases around something. Naturally, the squares to Mars can accompany some tensions, so as I mentioned yesterday, take care to ground the body and sooth the nervous system. Otherwise, these are some ultimately positive energies that can highlight communications, collaborations, community, social networks, partnerships, and interpersonal or commercial/financial endeavors somehow, and a whole lot of changes going on here. For some there can be some breaks for independence or some sort of liberation occurring, regardless how this is manifesting for you, everyone is experiencing their own personal revolution one way or another. It’s Aquarius season. The lunar/Mercury/Venus/Jupiter link can see some inspired thoughts and communications and some very intuitive, creative and inspired strokes of genius or creative innovations that are highly beneficial. The lunar square to Mars can create a highly charged atmosphere that can be prone to impatience, intolerance, or irritability, but the other aspects smooth this over pretty well for the most part, leaving this aspect to function mostly as a catalyst. This can be a very busy, talkative, and exciting day, aside from the lunar/Mars warning my only other caution is to try not to run yourself ragged, because this can be a lightning bolt of activity, correspondences, etc, with the Moon, Sun, Mercury, AND Venus, all squaring Mars simultaneously. Very action packed, things could get quite busy and feel like a blender turned up to 11. Conversely, for some, certain actions could feel blocked and there’s a need to innovate around obstacles or simply find an outlet for the highly charged nervous energy. Regardless, there is definitely a major push for action and fruitful change here on several fronts simultaneously, with a focus on partnerships, money, creative endeavors, enjoyment, pleasure, innovation, and expansion. In the evening, Venus and Jupiter perfect their conjunction in Aquarius at 12 degrees, and around 10 PM PST the Moon perfects a conjunction to Mercury simultaneously. There could be some positive news in the later hours this evening relating to money, values, partnerships, or just positive feedback that boosts morale in general.


THURS FEB 11.

Today is the New Moon in Aquarius, and it's possible that in spite of, and even perhaps because of certain positive trends, the potent stellium in Aquarius combined with a disorienting Mercury retrograde, has brought about a major case of "information overload." This morning see’s the Moon conjunct the Sun and Mercury in Aquarius while still holding it’s square to Mars along with the Sun, Venus, and Mercury. The New Moon in Aquarius is exact midmorning at 11:06 AM PST.  With Mars also sextile to Neptune, there are a lot of high ideals and a lot of inspiration around whatever we are passionate about, whatever we are doing. These aspects highlight a lot of action, (perhaps some tensions, challenges, and some very jangled nerves, a shock to the system, but also just a lot of motivation and passion), in regards to communications, social networking, goals, wishes, groups, friendships, finances, possessions, values. A major push here to make something happen or see something through to the finish line or to a success, -and get something seriously established.  In spite of the potential for tensions, challenges, blockages, or delays with these square ups to Mars, Mars also forms it’s anticipated trine to Pluto in Capricorn, and the Venus/Jupiter conjunction is at perfection today as well, with Mercury conjunct Venus, showing the possibility for good news and positive feedback in regards to relationships, partnerships, collaborations, cooperation, creative projects and finances. Mars trine to Pluto see’s a serious push towards a consolidation of power and empowerment. For those of you crypto nerds interested in my work on the “Dogecoin chart”, this perfected Venus/Jupiter conjunction occurs in Dogecoins 2nd house of money, earned income, value, self worth, self esteem. So it’ll be interesting to see how this transpires, as it’s possible the Doge could see an increase in popularity and a competitive edge over other crypto, with the Mars/Pluto trine occurring between the 5th and 1st houses, it could develop quite a cult following. As for the rest of us, the collective, there is a major push today to increase the value of something, and with the Moon conjunct the Sun, our efforts and actions can be noticed or in the spotlight somehow. Being that the Moon is involved we can be sensitive to feedback, but with Mercury conjunct Venus, -and Venus and Jupiter perfecting, the feedback looks surprisingly positive, and there are promising signs of growth, and eventual establishment, and for something to have serious legs, as long as there is a continued effort and faith in ourselves and whatever we are doing.  In the afternoon, the lunar square to Mars relents, which can see emotional pressures that may have been felt throughout the day begin to ease back a bit.  The Venus/Jupiter conjunction can see a fun loving, indulgent, and generous atmosphere, and we can feel very positive and enthusiastic about our goals. This influence is very strong and carries the day. It’s also worth noting that the Sun, Venus, Mercury, and Jupiter are all trine the North Node now as well, and this can see fate and destiny playing a role in relationships, friendships, new alliances, goals, and whatever we have going on now, and we can come into contact with others that can help us achieve our goals or elevate our position somehow. The asteroid Pallas is also in Aquarius as well, and conjunct the Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Venus, and this can see us brimming with brilliant and inspired ideas, and able to grasp new concepts quickly and apply them in ways that can be beneficial in the future. Our goals for the future can really be under the spotlight this evening. 


THE WEEKEND 


FRI FEB 12-SUN FEB 14.

Friday morning see’s the Moon in sensitive and psychic Pisces, in sextile to Uranus in Taurus. This can see some interesting “ESP” experiences, intuitive hunches, premonitions, and inspired creative ideas. Our psychic antenna can be picking up all kinds of signals from the ethers. It’s the kind of energy where you can find yourself thinking about a person you haven’t spoken to in a while, and then they message you out of the blue, along the lines of that sort of thing. Towards evening, a lunar semi square to Pluto and conjunction to Neptune can see heightened feelings and sensitivity and hence a more reflective, perhaps solitary and withdrawn atmosphere takes hold. This can see a pulling back and a more quiet, meditative, restful, and impressionable vibe predominates where we can be more active behind the scenes and doing things that require solitude, peace, and tranquility. Mercury perfects a conjunction with Venus, and this can see some very inspired thoughts in private, or perhaps some quiet, but nonetheless pleasing news or conversations can transpire, either interpersonally, in relationships, business or personal, creatively, or in regards to finances and/or in regards to pet projects. This is a dreamy atmosphere, and it’s possible for some unexpected delights. 


Saturday Feb 13th see’s the Moon in Pisces sextile Mars in Taurus while still conjunct Neptune, which see’s the potential some inspired activity. With Mars sextile Neptune and trine Pluto, there has been a push for an inspired transformation, and ideals around whatever this is can be highly activated this weekend. Mercury is smack dab in the middle of Venus and Jupiter now, so we can be feeling very optimistic around goals, finances, partnerships, and creative or collaborative efforts. We can also be waiting on news or feedback in some way here. The Moon goes on to also form a sextile to Pluto, so we can be feeling intensely inspired around something, and perhaps something or someone makes a deep impact upon us. There is a highly “mystical” atmosphere to these configurations, and something quite magical about them. The emotions/the frequency we are on has great power here, so wield it wisely and you can facilitate and manifest some pretty magical things if you put your mind to it. This is a deep and impressionable atmosphere and there can be some unique and impactful experiences. There can also be an intense longing for something or someone felt here, or perhaps there is a desire to make some sort of kind and generous gesture when the Moon reaches more assertive and courageous Aries. There’s certainly a lot of idealism, and some people can be making some pretty romantic plans for their special person on Valentines day.


Happy Valentines Day to all you lovers out there, you lucky ducks, and heck, to all us single people too. We can celebrate love in all it’s forms, everyday of course, even if we’re just dating ourselves, but this holiday is depressing for some folks, so I just thought I would show some love here. Today see’s the Moon enter Aries at 7:54 AM PST to conjunct Chiron, and Mercury perfects it’s conjunction to Jupiter in 13 degrees in Aquarius. There is a kindness and thoughtfulness to todays configurations, and with Mercury perfecting conjunction to Jupiter today, it’s possible for there to be some very surprising and generous communications or gestures. Moon/Chiron can show a lot of sensitivity and compassion for others. The Moon goes on to sextile Saturn in Aquarius, and this can see someone or something really come through, perhaps in a very unexpectedly thoughtful way. Mercury Rx in perfected conjunction to Jupiter also goes on to square Uranus, so it’s possible for some big surprises, something that someone says or does, or something that happens, can be completely unexpected. “I never knew!” We could receive an out of the blue communication, surprising news, or we could ourselves do or say something totally out of character or shake things up in a positive way. With both Venus and Jupiter in sextile to relationship asteroid Juno today, this can see some positive growth and expansive developments in relationships with others. Love, partnerships, money, gifts, and all things Venus ruled are also highlighted by the Sun and Mercury’s conjunction to Venus, and with the perfected conjunction between Mercury and Jupiter today, someone can want to go all out for their special person and make a big gesture that could be really surprising. For those of you solo birbs out there, today still holds some interesting surprises, you could even be your own surprise. Regardless, communications are highlighted in a big way with the perfection between Mercury and Jupiter, so continue to cultivate good vibes and positivity, and just keep your ear to the ground for some sweet news, positive feedback, friendly hello, or even an unexpected kindness. You could also be the one doling out the fresh baked good vibes to others. This same notice extends into Monday.

ASTROLOGY FOR THE WEEK OF FEB 1-7 2021.




MON FEB 1.

The Moon enters partnership and collaboration oriented Libra this morning, as Venus, planet of love and money, enters unconventional and humanitarian Aquarius. Here, Venus prioritizes friendship, independence, individuation, and a shared vision of the future, and she is more inclined to be friendly and perhaps a bit emotionally detached, and more inclined to focus on the future possibilities than she is to cling to the past, appeal to authority, or the status quo. This particular Venus cycle can see some very interesting and beneficial alliances forming, and we can reap unique benefits through immersing ourselves into community somehow, whether that be some type of fringe community, social networks, friendships, groups with shared goals, likeminded weirdos and the like. Whatever is unique, experimental, and “out there” can hold appeal and potentially offer up surprising benefits. The Moon conjoins the Part Of Fortune this morning as well as forming fortuitous trines to the Sun, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius-but opposing Chiron in Aries. These are some very good trends, but perhaps there’s an element of vulnerability and risk that accompanies the somewhat unpredictable quality of particular blessings, associations, or moves that are outside of our usual terrain or patterns. With Mercury now backtracking through Aquarius, it’s slightly weaker than normal, and with Mars in Taurus still squaring up to Jupiter while conjunct Uranus, it will serve everyone well not to make gross overestimations, -or get too cocky. Conversely, same drug, different arm, don’t stand in your own way or be too stubborn or bullheaded or set in your own ways to take advantage of the unique, (if rather unconventional or highly unusual) opportunities these configurations can (and will) offer up. Today’s configurations can see a lot of generosity and solidarity, and it seems like many are focused on catching their footing (Moon trine Saturn). A lunar quincunx to Uranus can see some impulsivity and excitability, and there can be a need to make some adjustments to adapt to the new trends unfolding. Lunar/Chiron configuration can see a sensitive atmosphere, and there can be some highly unusual situations or circumstances that are keeping people on their toes, but also a greater concern for and sensitivity towards the welfare of others. There’s a vulnerability here, sure, but there are enough positive trends in these configurations to counterbalance this. A lunar sesquisquare to Mercury (now retrograde) can emphasize importance of counting to 10 before jumping the gun or making reactionary moves or statements, particularly if you notice the feelings are very involved or provoked by something. For the most part, today can see some really good vibes, and there can be a lot of optimism around the future, and the new and strange possibilities opening up. A lot of solidarity and good will can be in the atmosphere,-along with an air of “experimentation”- and it can feel like there is a lot to look forward to, as new initiatives or endeavors are getting off the ground that can shift the direction of things significantly. There is a “liberating” quality to these configurations. 


TUES FEB 2.

This morning begins with the Moon in Libra trine the Sun and Jupiter in Aquarius. The Sun also conjoins Mercury and Jupiter, and Venus conjoins Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius as well. In spite of some heavier influences, we can be feeling optimistic around partnerships, collaborations, relationships, friendships, goals, finances, and visions of the future, as if our world is figuratively and literally expanding. A favorable shift in power and a trend towards the greater good and justice can be felt here. The Moon goes on to trine Mercury and it’s possible we could hear from someone or give or receive some good news, deals, or offers, perhaps unexpectedly. This can be something perhaps laid on the table previously being brought up or examined more seriously once again. This can see a lot of focus on communications, and even trade and commerce is highlighted here. The Moon throws in a square to Pluto on top of this, so this adds a layer of intensity, power, or clout, to whatever this is. Secrets can come to light or things that have been submerged can see the light of day. There may be a need to retreat a bit to form a plan/approach/or strategy to whatever is being brought up or unfolding here, as there may be a lot to consider. The lunar square to Pluto basically throws shade on the otherwise easygoing and humanitarian configurations and just intensifies the atmosphere. There can be a focus on righting wrongs. There could also be some obsessiveness or compulsiveness, hype, fear, etc. These configurations can also highlight secret, backdoor deals or insider info, exposures, or there can be something “taboo” (or even occult?) ..or perhaps dark, even macabre, to whatever is being discussed, thought about, revealed, or considered here. Pluto brings a sort of freaky heaviness to the table, and in it’s classic “Hades” fashion, it wants what it wants and will negotiate (or in some cases, manipulate) in order to get it, or simply just not back down, doubling down instead of buckling. This isn’t all terrible, it just illustrates the *potential* for some heavy handedness, power plays, (bribery? Pushiness? One track, do or die thinking? Desperation?) possibly on the part of people in more powerful or less vulnerable positions than certain others. However these configurations manifest, Pluto brings a heavy breathing intensity to the table that strikes a hard bargain that could be difficult to refute, as it's an uncompromising planet. Late evening see’s the Moon in late Libra also begin to build a square to Venus, freshly in Aquarius. Combined with the other aspects, (not to mention Saturn/Uranus) this can see some waffling back and forth or perhaps just a bit of a difficulty navigating either our own or others powerful instincts, drives, emotions, instability, etc. These aspects could see some sort of deals trying to go down and if this is the case, it appears one party has more clout, power, certainty, or experience than another, or in the very least, there is some sort of power dynamic involved here that can perhaps overwhelm the less prepared or less experienced party.  There is a sort of “let’s make a deal” quality to these aspects, and there can be shadiness being exposed. On a purely individual note, these configurations have a sort of “Nancy Drew” investigative quality, that can be excellent for research or diving in deeper around something that really intrigues us. Moon/Mercury/Pluto has a somewhat obsessive and tunnel vision quality to it that really cuts to the essence of things, and provides a laser focus that can see people unusually preoccupied with something at the exclusion of all else, watching something or someone like a fucking hawk.  With the Moon about to enter Scorpio tomorrow, it could be that some tempting offers or deals are thrown on the table that open up a sort of pandoras box. As generic as this is, I would just advise anyone to be careful what you sign or agree to under a Mercury retrograde, as it’s typically a better time for reviewing/revisioning/reconsidering/reworking ..etc.. the things you’ve already got going on. As for stonks and crympto go, keep your eye’s on tomorrow, as there could be some shifts to navigate, mitigate, or take into consideration. It's an atmosphere of extremes.


WED FEB 3.

This morning see’s the Moon enter intense, sensitive, and instinctual Scorpio at 6:15 AM PST. This places the Moon in square to Venus, Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius, and in opposition to both Mars and Uranus in Taurus today. There is a decided restlessness to these configurations, and perhaps a bit of uneasiness as we wrestle with conflicting feelings. These configurations have an unpredictable quality that can see people feeling somewhat out of sorts, and liable to extreme bandwidths. Letting off some steam through grounding physical activities can be of help here. The lunar square to Saturn can create some blockades but also present opportunities to turn lemons into lemonade so to speak. With so many squares in todays math this can be a somewhat “action packed day” that keeps us on our toes, or if your in the stonk and crympto markets, on the edge of your seats. It might be wise for people to think before they act on their feelings today, as the feelings can be rather unstable under the Scorpio lunation. It’s also possible that there’s an element of extreme hype with no substance, or fear mongering going on, so taking care to focus on that which is in your control, and keep in mind that the intensity of the Scorpio lunation will pass. There is a grit and determination to these aspects and there is a lot that is unconventional about it. With Moon/Uranus opposition, there can be some shocks and surprises today that seem larger than life, or in the very least, something can be blown way out of proportion. Take care to respond as opposed to react. In some cases it could be someone somewhere is trying to goad you into a particular over the top reaction (or investment) and this could play right into their hands. It can feel somewhat difficult to relax under these influences, perhaps there is some frustrations to grapple with for some, so maybe roll up an extra blunt or 12 to have handy, or double down on whatever relaxation technique you typically rely on. This energy can be great if channeled into productivity, and can even assist us in achieving new levels. Regardless of any sort of unsettling or destabilizing vibes that may accompany some of these aspects, the overall trends look promising. With both Venus and Saturn in Aquarius in sextile to Chiron in Aries, carefully calculated risks can pay off, and there is more courage available to embrace our own uniqueness as well as to venture into unique territory and experiment a bit with different or unorthodox approaches. There can be optimism around new social networks, friendships, alliances, futuristic trends, or ideas that are ahead of their time, or that have been sorely underestimated in the past. If these aspects do happen to get you worked up (hyphy) or even fearful (which, the potential for fear mongering and/or hype is there, but not a given), take heart that things will lighten up soon and this too shall pass. 


THUR FEB 4.

Today see’s the Moon in brooding Scorpio squaring up to the Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury in Aquarius, opposing Mars in Taurus and trine Neptune in Pisces. There can be some very good hunches and intuitive nudges under these aspects, and the instinctual and intuitive capacities can be pretty strong. There can also be a lot of indecision and instability as well.  Conversely, these aspects can also err on the side of over idealization, as Scorpio tends towards extremes, and Jupiter, excess, and boundless optimism. However, maybe there is something to be feeling pretty damn good about here, and perhaps it can also be a case of the power of positive thinking.  There can be an emphasis on healing.  Today can be good for engaging the reflective and intuitive capacities, as there may still be some inner conflicts to grapple with here. We are in a Mercury Rx, so it’s a good idea to slow down and reflect, and take time over decisions, even if there is a sort of false sense of urgency spurring us on towards radical change. The lunar/Neptune trine can be a nice, soothing balm that helps to calm the beast within and release control over anything that falls outside of our locus of control. It can also see a lot of compassion as well, and even an increase of interest in the occult or spiritual matters, or bringing healing to people who have been harmed. Later, the Moon forms a sextile to Pluto which can see the mind drift to deeper places and conversations as well can veer into more esoteric or “taboo” topics. The lunar square to Mercury all day can see the mind very inquisitive, and the trine to Neptune and sextile to Pluto can see a desire to delve deeper into whatever mysteries have piqued our curiosity. But these configurations aren’t exactly a fan of making small talk or talking about the weather, they favor a deeper and more substantive or even mystical fare. This can produce some deep insights, even while on our own, in solitude, and we can be more receptive to subtlety. Great configurations for artists, musicians, or people interested in esoteric matters. The lunar sextile to Pluto can give the emotions great power, and produce some impactful experiences. The Moon will shift into optimistic Sagittarius tomorrow, getting the weekend off to a pleasing, and more sociable start.


THE WEEKEND:


FRI FEB 5-SUN FEB 7.

Friday see’s the Moon enter happy go lucky Sagittarius around 9:16 AM PST. Here, the Moon first forms a trine to Chiron in Aries, which can see a boost in confidence, courage, optimism and self belief that perhaps comes as a relief after the minor turbulence, real or perceived challenges, vulnerability, and instability offered up by the intense  Scorpio lunation. Next, the Moon forms a friendly sextile to both Venus and Saturn in Aquarius. This is both comforting, enlivening, and stabilizing. It’s as if things are falling into a sort of reliable groove, or we’ve reached a “home safe” kind of milestone that also represents something entirely new for us. I almost hear an audible sigh of relief when I look at these aspects, like “Whew. We did it.” Almost like climbing up to a new level in something. There can be something about this that is like a sort of "cosmic justice". There’s a pleasant sociability to these aspects, and the lunar trine to Chiron also brings opportunities to have healing exchanges with others. There’s a lot of good vibes contained in these configurations, and in some ways there can be a sense of being vindicated somehow. The Moon is also conjunct Juno as well, so we can feel very supported and there is a lot of good will between ourselves and others. Late night throws in the lunar sextile to Jupiter, so the positive vibes and good will only grow and increase in magnitude. Perhaps there’s even something to celebrate? These aspects bode well for money, investments, stonks/crympto, as well as relationships, friendships and the social life, -as long as people don’t get too far ahead of themselves. Saturday morning see’s the Moon in optimistic Sagittarius sextile indulgent Jupiter and square sensitive, empathic, but delusional Neptune. The Moon swaps the Jupiter sextile for a sextile with the Sun midmorning, and adds in a sextile to Mercury Rx as the day wears on. Altogether, this can make for some heightened feelings, and place emphasis on communications, goals, social networks, and friendships. The lunar/Neptune square can create a lot of confusion, but can also disinhibit people, perhaps to a point of oversharing and feeling out on a limb afterwards. Saturday looks good for chillaxing and good times, but not so great for making any sort of decisions that might require a more sober view of things, as it’s a little drunk at the wheel. Sunday see’s the Moon enter stoic and reserved Capricorn at 12:52 PM PST, where it will square Chiron, which can perhaps see a bit of vulnerability. Simultaneously, the Moon in Cap trines Uranus in Taurus, which almost adds a sly grin of “yea I said that/did that.” Or “Yea I’m actually doing this. So what?” It’s a weird admixture of vulnerability and completely unashamed authenticity that has an oddly liberating nature to it. Sunday can see a focus on new and exciting activities, approaches, initiatives, plans, and calculated risks, and a momentum can be building around this somehow that will begin next week in an action oriented and ambitious frame that has a quiet determination about it. A slow and determined effort towards making radical shifts.
