Weekly Astrology February 18th to February 24th 2013

Monday: Sun in Pisces, Moon conjunct Jupiter

The Gemini Moon meets Jupiter and this is beneficial for making connections, changing your way of thinking and anything that needs to be put in writing. It's a great day to break through a writer's block or come up with an idea for a story, research or experiment.  Gemini Moon allows for more flexible thinking. Jupiter is bursting with ideas to develop.  Aries and Gemini writers get the ultimate benefit.  Cancer should consider this a big planning day and notice how multiple new ideas and perspective shifts present themselves.  Leo and Aquarius today is a great social day for connecting with people for either business prospects or just plain fun.  You're likely to be surrounded by friends if you seek that today.  The Sun moves to Pisces which is a very nice time of year for Scorpio generally speaking.  Babies born from 7:02 am EST on will be Pisces this year.  The Moon squares Mars today challenging us to change perspective, not fight the flow of things, and move eagerly into new learning experiences. There's some uncertainty in the air and our emotions and intellect may be telling us two different things. Meshing both  might be the answer rather than one way or another. This is not a time to be fixed as you may have felt over the weekend. Mercury retrograde is approaching and our minds change. Entertain an idea you had written off. Saturn is retrograde today in Scorpio and we'll feel the slow down begin.  Don't try to move too fast. Do open your mind and see what's knocking on your door that you maybe shut out before. Today's color is light blue.

Tuesday: Moon square Mercury in Pisces

The Gemini Moon and Mercury in Pisces form a square. This can create a debate between the thinking and the feeling mind or between personalities that tend to lean strongly toward emotion or logic.  The key is to try and be agreeable, willing to listen, and able to compromise.  There's changeable energy at work for the next few weeks like we haven't seen in the new year thus far.  So keep your mind open and malleable and consider a change in perspective or action.  The Moon also harmonizes with Venus in Aquarius. Aquarius you have one more week of Venus's direct influence, and Leo you have one more week with Venus in your sign of long term love and commitment. Use this time to attract, resolve, and maybe make a promise. Mercury is near retrograde so the sooner you commit the better and leave a bit of room to change your course later, even to make slight alterations in a plan you agree to.  Venus in Aquarius in harmony with the Moon is also great for Libra friendships and new romances.  Gemini, this is an active day for you career wise and in terms of how you present your self. The Moon is void of course from 1:48 pm on so we do  our best thinking and make our best agreements before then. Tonight is social and a good night to catch up on writing or studies though the tendency to be distracted is fairly high. Wear white.

Wednesday: Cancer Moon

The Moon moves to Cancer at 5:45 am EST and works well with the Sun and Neptune today.  There's a feeling of connectedness and potential for creativity. It's a day to act like the chameleon and adjust to circumstances, blend in and find a good flow.  We do have a square with Uranus tonight which often requires some quick reaction time and response to surprises. The challenge here is to be as prepared as you can for something you know might be coming, and then not to overreact.  Face people and any issues head on rather than doing the Cancer sidestep. The Sun is helping with flexibility and Neptune with the ability to overlook faults and be positive or forgiving. There's sentiment, sensitivity to environment and also some defensiveness in the air, but the Moon's support from Pisces makes it easier to deal with.  Sagittarius and Aries, home and family matters become a priority, from relationships to repairs.  Cancer, there's a surprise from your career sector that may be a recurring theme, today and tomorrow both.  Capricorn, communicate well and contact people who might be of support or need yours.  Wear blue.

Thursday: Cancer Moon, Sun conjunct Neptune

The Cancer Moon and meeting of the Sun and Neptune highlight the water sign energies. Water signs are Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio. The creativity, sensitivity, and feeling traits are activated strongly.  The Sun and Neptune help us come up with the most imaginative and unique ideas. Hold a vision and maybe draw up plans now.  This is romantic for Scorpio in new relationships and for Virgo in long term love.  Pisces gets the creative high and Aquarius may dream up ways to make more money, especially from creative work.  The Moon opposes Pluto and this is a monthly cycle which might be hard on Cancer and Capricorn psyche.  Sit tight with difficult feelings and try to work through them positively knowing these are long term demons that are not vanquished in a day, if you're feeling that way.  Allow feelings to arise for revision or other examination. Ask yourself what would you tell your best friend and give yourself the same advice.  Saturn, Mars and Mercury are active with this Cancer Moon, and in general we need to keep feelings, our own and others, in mind as we take actions.  We are close to Mercury retrograde so keep flexibility and avoid saying or doing anything you can't reverse and could regret.  Today's color is black.

Friday: Mercury retrograde

Mercury retrograde begins overnight into tomorrow, 4:41 am EST, so in the UK and Europe it begins today.  The retrograde happens in Pisces and encourages inner work, a review of your emotional circumstances, relationships and decisions you might want to rethink. In Pisces, Mercury is versatile and sentimental. Reconciliations are likely through March 17th.  Today the Moon is in Leo for optimism. It's meant more as a social day, but if you're mixing simple business with pleasure, that works.  This Leo Moon and Uranus instigate passionate, impulsive moves. Keep things reversible since we are highly likely to change our minds in the weeks ahead, especially about major purchases and our personal lives.  Getting back to a project in progress is in favor! Tonight is meant for fun, celebration, and reconnection.  Wear purple.

Saturday: Mercury retrograde, Full Moon warmup

The Moon in Leo and Saturn in Scorpio impact this weekend with an air of seriousness. This is not the time to be fixed, stubborn or fighting the flow. And yet that is the energy of the Moon and Saturn in fixed signs. Re-examine what you're not letting go of, what's making it harder for you, and consider what you might try out or allow.  Mercury is retrograde so keep things to a trial basis and that includes new relationships and reconciliations. Forgiving is favored though today attitudes may be stubborn.  Tap into the festive, playful side of Leo Moon and remember not everything is meant to be a struggle. The Moon is almost Full and if you feel pressure about a decision, just move slowly and thoughtfully through it.  Today's color is gold.

Sunday: Full Moon

The Moon is in Leo and will be full overnight in Virgo. Today the Moon is opposite Venus in Aquarius for attempts to reconcile any relationship matters.  Venus's last full day in Aquarius is also good for working in groups and finding people we connect with. Mercury is now retrograde and reconnecting with people we used to know happens more easily.  For Leo and Libra, this last day of Venus in Aquarius is a good time to focus on love and what you want a relationship to be.  For Aquarius, it's a time also to make a strong connection with your significant other.  Brand new relationships are not as well aspected while Mercury is retrograde.  The Full Moon brings passionate emotions today and due dates too. Be cautious about commitment, while knowing that during this Leo Moon what we engage in tends to be for the long term.  The Moon moves void of course at 11:50 pm EST. Today's color is pink.
