Monday: Sagittarius Moon, Mars conjunct Neptune
The Moon is void of course for a few hours from 7:31 to 10:45 am EST. Those hours can mean a significant slow down and it's best if we can ease in and take our time. Messages and transportation can be especially affected this morning as the Moon squares Mercury. Do what you can to avoid mix ups and miscommunication. The Moon moves to Sagittarius and interacts with a number of planets for a day of multi-tasking. It will help to prioritize on a day that could otherwise be scattered and lead to not accomplishing anything solid. Mars and Neptune meet in Pisces which is also not a very practical force unless you're unleashing your best creative ideas. Do act on your dreams, but don't get lost in them. Tonight as the Moon opposes Jupiter, try not to make problems or even stories bigger and more exaggerated than they really have to be. There's a tendency to be dramatic tonight, especially if faced with the unexpected. It's Mercury's last night in Aquarius and a good time for a community or group meeting and any kind of technical purchase or upgrade. Today's color is purple.
Tuesday: Mercury in Pisces
Mercury moves to Pisces where the planet of communication urges sensitive and compassionate communication, forgiveness, romance, and imaginative work like fiction writing and film making. Heart to heart conversations are important in the next few weeks and may be more productive before Mercury's retrograde starts on February 23rd. The Sun and Moon relate in Aquarius and Sagittarius today and this can help our confidence, sense of adventure, and willingness to have an open mind. The Moon is void of course from 3:42 pm EST through the night. Void of course Moon time is better suited to socializing and relaxation than to work, but if you have to accomplish something, take on routine thinking and work rather than something new or unfamiliar. Today's color is turquoise.
Wednesday: Venus sextile Uranus, Mercury conjunct Neptune
Mercury, Mars and Neptune, all in Pisces, impact this week. Today Mercury meets Neptune. All this Pisces energy puts us in romantic, sentimental, feeling modes. Mercury and Neptune are imaginative and nostalgic together. The downside is we could put on the "rose colored glasses". Don't tell yourself stories that glorify the past or a person. Try to see things for what they are in the here and now. For those in creative, arts, and design work or who are connected to water sports, boating, the fishing industry, and waterfront property, this Pisces energy brings focus to your interests. Plans and business surrounding those are in the forecast and this may mean getting ready for spring/summer season with orders, trade shows, and other planning. Venus works in harmony with Uranus and Jupiter (overnight tonight) for changes of relationship status, perhaps quickly or unexpectedly. Venus in Aquarius relates to Leo and Aquarius in committed or long term partnerships and love. Aries and Libra may notice this more with short term liasons, friendships or romantic partners. Beginnings, endings and changes in love lives will be noticeable this week. The Moon moves to Capricorn at 12:55 pm and it's a reminder to keep taking steps toward goals and progress some with projects even if you're distracted by all the Pisces and relationship goings on. Hands on work is favored today and tonight, for example building, repairing, and organizing physical space. Today's color is green.
Thursday: Void of course Moon
The Moon is void in Capricorn from 7:44 am EST, all day and night long, until 2:16 pm tomorrow. Saturn and Pluto both engage with the Moon early on and we'll have the big things in life on our minds, even if they are not to be decided or acted upon today. . Accomplish very routine, simple things now. Clean, organize with a system you can remember later, and deal with things that were pushed aside. But do not expect your best judgment or most meticulous work while the Moon is void of course and avoid expensive purchases if possible. It's a bit of a foggy influence. Do the things you can "do in your sleep". We'll be happiest if we're busy during this Capricorn Moon. Venus's activity in the last couple of days has our minds on love and relationship and shifts and growth in that area of life. It may help to occupy yourself with other things as well so you don't dwell on that too much. If love is good then today you may just be reveling in it and unconcerned with the other matters of the world. Today's color is gray.
Friday: Mercury conjunct Mars
The Pisces conjunctions continue with Mercury and Mars together today. Be careful and considerate as you speak. There's an extra sensitivity to criticism and conflict. This is a great aspect for creative writers, artists, and those with a message to convey with style. It can be rough if you have a sensitive topic to broach, though a sincere heart to heart talk can be productive if it's gentle enough. Tread a bit lightly if you'd rather not end up with a dramatic scene or unintended reaction. The emotional waters are churning and this can be nice for love and romance but extra rough for sadness and breakups and such things. The Moon moves to Aquarius at 2:16 pm after a long void of course time. This afternoon can be very productive and is also a good time to rally people together and find a sense of belonging and common cause. Today's color is blue.
Saturday: Mercury squares Jupiter
The Moon and Venus meet in Aquarius. This aspect favors Leos & Aquarians in long term relationships or committing to that now. It's a great social day for Libra, Aries, and Gemini too. Group meetings, events, and collaborations are nicely timed. The Aquarius conjunction also gives us the right conditions for designing things, like beautiful spaces. Today we may also want to decide on things and enter agreements. Just realize that with Jupiter and Mercury in mutable signs, the decisions may not be long lasting and the details will take some work. Still, this is a much better time to initiate than from Feb 23rd into March during Mercury's retrograde. Put a flexible plan in place. The New Moon overnight in Aquarius instigates fresh starts of all sorts! Tonight is good for a party or night out. Today's color is pink.
Sunday: New Moon in Aquarius
The New Moon in Aquarius arrives at 2:20 am. This is also Chinese New Year, welcoming year of the snake which I have not looked up but it would be natural to think this is about shedding old skin. Every New Moon relates to transforming and changing, and this one is Aquarius's yearly gift. Since it is near Venus and Neptune both, the Moon helps along romantic alliances and long term relationships as well. See yesterday's forecast for the signs most involved. The Moon moves to Pisces at 4:20 pm and meets Neptune, a highly creative conjunction. This is also the conditions for escapism so do that with a film or art rather than in an unhealthy way. We are vulnerable under Pisces Moon tonight. Wear light blue.
