MON FEB 14.
Happy Valentines Day. We begin this week with the Moon in charismatic and passionate Leo, while Mercury enters into the opposite sign of Aquarius. If there’s something that you’ve been fixated on while Mercury was conjunct Pluto, this week could see the beginning of solutions, resolutions, changes, or a closing out of a cycle. The Moon squares Uranus in Taurus and trines Chiron in Aries, while being opposite Mercury today. This could see us open to innovation and change, and feeling passionately driven, motivated and ambitious. Venus and Mars are in sync for the next few days. Today they are exactly conjunct at 15 degrees Capricorn while trine Uranus, so this can see passion and creativity combining with ambition, discipline, and excitement. Take advantage of this lit, passionate and ambitious energy while you can, you can make a great deal of progress and make some sweeping changes and improvements while these two walk hand in hand all week, power couple style, making ambitious moves and strides upward and onward. There can be electricity and change in the air that can create sparks, inspiration, and motivation. This is a powerful energy for really getting your shit on lock and zooming in on a goal. The Leo lunation emphasizes a desire for fun seeking, creative expression, and playful competition, while Mercury in Aquarius places the focus on cooperation, teamwork, collaborations, future goals, friendships, groups, social networking, and innovation. Communications can be highlighted, and there can be some surprises or shifts in store. Late night see’s the Moon opposite Saturn, so we may need to grapple with our own self doubt, inhibitions, challenges or blockages. The Moon/Uranus link can highlight breaking out of ruts or challenging any stifling or stuffy, stuck in the mud influences. The Full Moon on Wednesday can help us see where discipline and realism can help us refine our approach to something while also encouraging authenticity and courage to be true to ourselves. There’s a happy medium between stuffing everything down to protect other peoples feelings, or carelessly acting out.
TUES FEB 15.
Today see’s the Moon in Leo opposite Saturn and the Sun in Aquarius. This influence can focus on refinement. There can be some inhibitions or shyness to contend with, as Saturn tends to constrict. We could be very aware of how we’ve been holding back in certain areas. This energy can also see some defining moments in regards to goals, wishes, groups, friendships, and social networking. This energy could see us very concentrated on something or working towards refining or perfecting something. Venus and Mars are in perfect step with one another and are perfected now at 16 degrees, yesterday saw them perfected at 15 degrees. There’s plenty of passion and motivation around a goal, and we could feel driven to improve and outdo our previous bests and continue an upward trajectory. They’re both sextile Jupiter in Pisces and trine Uranus in Taurus. Inspiration, passion, idealism and motivation can be high. This energy is about mustering the courage to express ourselves, be true to ourselves, release stagnating influences and blockages, and truly dedicate ourselves to follow a dream and step into a more fully realized version of ourselves. The Full Moon tomorrow helps release baggage or stagnation that’s been blocking our joy or inhibiting our potential.
WED FEB 16.
Today see’s the Full Moon in Leo at 8:56 AM PST, opposite the Sun in Aquarius. This highlights our goals, social networks, groups and communities we are a part of, collaborating with others, creative expression, creative projects, passion, innovation, future goals, and things that inspire us and make us feel alive. Venus and Mars are still walking in step with one another and reach 17 degrees Capricorn. A process of perfection, mastery and preparation has been occurring. We may need to find a balance between our own desires and those of a group, friendship, or social networks we are a part of, or have the courage to express ourselves or go after what we want, even if it sets us apart from certain others. We could acknowledge previously unacknowledged needs or desires. Stepping more into alignment with our own wider vision and goals and sharpening our vision around them while fortifying our courage is indicated by these configurations. The Moon enters earthy Virgo at 12:42 PM PST, to trine with Uranus and oppose Jupiter. A surge of passion and creative drive can be a part of the picture. Releasing or addressing any issues that may have been a thorn in our side or holding us back is also highlighted. We can feel motivated to ring in some radical changes, do a deep clean, and eliminate blockages to realizing our inspired visions.
THURS FEB 17.
Today see’s the Moon in Virgo trine Venus and Mars, which are perfectly conjunct at 17 degrees Capricorn. The Moon is also trine Uranus and opposite Jupiter and Neptune, and this can see us excited and inspired to ring in some changes. There can be a lot of motivation to get organized and perfect and improve something. Idealism and perfectionism is high, but so is the drive and discipline it takes to actualize things. It can be easier to spot flaws or things that don’t quite measure up to our highest visions, but this ability to critique ourselves or hold ourselves or our life to a high standard also serves to motivate and inspire us to do better. There can be a pleasant restlessness to these configurations, and there could be some surprises in store. We could be seeking ways to reinvigorate ourselves and add new things to our routines. This could see some people on a health or self improvement kick. For the nicest of reasons, we can feel motivated to do and be our best while also bringing more excitement, inspiration, and fresh perspectives into our world.
FRI FEB 18.
The Sun makes it’s annual ingress into Pisces today at 8:43 AM PST, encouraging everyone to let loose a little bit and give way to some relaxation, dreaming, release, and creative visualization. The Moon in Virgo is trine Venus and Mars, who are still walking side by side in perfect synchrony at 18 degrees Capricorn. The Moon is also opposite Neptune, as well as trine powerful Pluto, -making this energy doubly potent. This energy can see a pleasant surrender to our own desires, motivating us to make some major transformations in order to bring more pleasure into our lives. There can also be a lot of creativity to this energy. There can be some powerful interpersonal, social, or financial, collaborative shifts taking place that can set the stage for improved dynamics, or fresh ones altogether. There’s a new corner being turned and this energy can inspire us to set the stage to accommodate new possibilities and potentials. With Pluto involved, something or someone can definitely be making an impact and we can feel powerfully focused on ringing in some deep changes. The Moon enters Libra late tonight, to trine Mercury in Aquarius, placing the focus on communications, collaborations, and working together with others to build bridges and create solid foundations.
SAT FEB 19.
Today can highlight communications with the Moon in partnership oriented Libra trine Mercury and Saturn in Aquarius. This could see certain agreements, collaborations, partnerships, friendships, or negotiations become more cemented or goals around them become more defined. The Moon is opposite Chiron, so it’s possible that certain sensitive or thorny issues require diplomacy, objectivity and realism in order to negotiate a path forward or negotiate our terms. The Moon goes on to square Venus and Mars in Capricorn, who are side by side at 19 degrees in Capricorn, and this emphasizes partnerships, love, relationships, social dynamics, money, creative projects, passion, pleasure, drive, competitive instincts, and conflict resolution. There can be some spicy feelings that require some detachment and diplomacy, but the stage looks set for constructive resolutions or creative compromises. We may be drawn to people or situations that appeal greatly to us but simultaneously make us feel vulnerable somehow or arouse competitive instincts. It’s possible we have to negotiate the pursuit of our own desires with those around us, or simply integrate the passion we feel around our goals with the vulnerability required to truly commit to them. In either case, this weekend can see potentially thorny issues being addressed and negotiated to make way for some serious transformations and deep seated improvements. Striking a balance between being completely authentic and true to ourselves and diplomatically navigating interpersonal dynamics are highlighted this weekend.
SUN FEB 20.
Today see’s the Moon in conciliatory Libra squaring Venus, Mars, and Pluto in Capricorn, while trine Saturn. This is some powerful and passionate energy, and Venus and Mars are both conjunct Pluto and sextile Neptune, so ideals are very high, and eyes are fixed on the prize. Neptune has a softening influence on the otherwise cut throat, desirous, and ambitious influence of Venus/Mars/Pluto. But make no mistake, these influences see people wanting whatever they want, fervently, -and willing to put in the work and sweat for it as well. Something can feel “just out of reach” with Neptune’s influence, and the Moon squaring up to Mars can be a bit impatient to see results. Neptune brings a softness, compassion and understanding for how the pursuit of our desires and goals may be impacting others, which can help a great deal if there are social or interpersonal complexities to navigate. The diplomacy of the Libra lunation barely veils the fierce authenticity of these configurations. We want what we want and that’s all there is to it. Keeping in mind that there are no shortcuts to success, and that playing nicely with others and navigating interpersonal, social, or business power dynamics, competing interests and responsibilities with grace and diplomacy, will help accelerate success. Next week kicks off on a very passionate and idealistic note.
