Your Weekly Astrology Forecast February 2-9, 2020

The Saturn/Pluto conjunction is behind us, though some of the tensions it brought about linger still. The Sun marches on through Aquarius, bringing a focus on invention, brilliant ideas, friendship, and humanitarian concerns. Mercury goes retrograde on February 16 for a three-week backward spin, so now is the time to make travel arrangements, sign contracts, and complete projects that require communication and getting things in print. The Moon culminates in a Full Moon in Leo/Aquarius on Saturday night/Sunday morning, depending on your time zone. There are long void Moon periods on Friday and Sunday, so plan accordingly.

curiosity and conversation to start to the week

Monday the Moon moves into curious, conversation-oriented Gemini. Venus in Pisces dances with Saturn and Pluto in a benefic sextile, encouraging us to love our work, and to develop our dreams by planning practical steps forward.  

The Gemini Moon trines the Aquarius Sun on Tuesday, giving an easy, curious, friendly tone to the day. A Moon-Neptune square could bring a blanket of fog, or could lift us to new heights of inspiration and give imaginative ideas. A Moon-Mars opposition could bring heated discussions, or energize our minds. Energies are mixed, and we are able to stretch to far-reaching humanitarian ideas and solutions.

emotionality and compassion mid-week

While the Moon is void of course most of Wednesday morning, it moves into home and family-oriented Cancer at 11: 02 a.m., bringing on a more emotionally sensitive day. The Moon and Mercury make benefic sextiles with Uranus, showering us with brilliant ideas. The Moon’s edgy square could make us more sensitive to hurt feelings. This is a day to nurture yourself, and to allow enough space to catch those great ideas that are in the air.

Thursday invites compassion, caring, and nurturing, colored by the Cancer Moon, and encouraged by a Jupiter-Moon opposition. Spread loving kindness. Nurture yourself and others. Cook some nourishing, yummy food and cozy up in the evening at home with family.

energetic play to close the week

Early Friday the Moon makes edgy aspects to Saturn and Pluto. Get out of your comfort zone and get moving. Honor your exercise goals. The Moon is void of course from 7:42 a.m. until 2:44 p.m. PST, so stick to routine tasks during this time. Then the Moon bounces into Leo at 2:44 p.m. PST, announcing a sunny, warm, playful weekend. With Moon-trine-Venus we are ready to dance the night away and enjoy a sweet evening.

Saturday or Sunday, depending on where you live, the Moon is full in Leo at 11:33 p.m. PST Saturday evening, or 7:33 GMT on Sunday. One symbolic theme is individual action (Leo) in the interest of the collective (Aquarius). We strive to level the playing field. On Saturday Juno, the asteroid of the mate, is stationary retrograde, calling us to reflect on the quality of our primary relationships. Get your weekend shopping and errands done on Saturday, as the Moon is void of course all day Sunday. 

On Sunday Mars goes out of bounds where it will be beyond the Sun’s apparent path until March 2nd. When Mars, or any planet, is out of bounds it behaves more erratically and unpredictably. With Mars out of bounds, tempers may flare more easily, and actions may be triggered more impulsively. Keep this in mind, and refrain from heated entanglements or unexamined actions. Sunday morning the Leo Moon is trine to Mars in Sagittarius. Get your running shoes on and head to the gym or trail. With Moon in Leo, make it a play day with your children, or your inner child. At 3:38 p.m. PST the Moon moves into industrious Virgo. Get yourself organized Sunday evening for the week ahead.

The Week in Short:

Monday: Be curious and conversant. Take practical steps toward your goals.

Tuesday: Curious, friendly day for communicating and connecting.

Wednesday: Sensitive day where we seek to give and receive nurturing, and a day to capture great ideas.

Thursday: Express kindness and compassion. Cozy up at home with family.

Friday: Moon VoC 7:44 a.m. – 2:44 p.m., a time to focus on routine tasks or walk in nature. Friday evening ushers in a sunny, playful weekend.

Saturday: Reflect on the state of your primary relationships. Get your weekend shopping and errands done.

Sunday: Make it a play day with your children, or your inner child. In the evening, get organized for the week ahead. Moon VoC 8:08 a.m. – 3:38 p.m. PST.
