Your Weekly Astrology Forecast for February 18–24, 2019

The Sun moves into Pisces tropically on Monday, February 18, ushering in a zodiacal month focused on vision, inspiration, spirituality, creativity, compassion … and water.

This week holds a Full Moon that is also a Super Moon – a Full Moon that is close to the Earth. The Full Moon occurs just after the Moon moves into Pisces, at 0:42 degrees of Pisces/Virgo. This Full Moon contains the tension of ideals we want to accomplish and the practicality of what can actually be accomplished. Aim high and work hard and the results of this Full Moon energy will be tremendous accomplishment.

Prepare for the Super Moon

Monday is a day of shifts. The Sun moves from Aquarius to Pisces at 3:04 p.m. PST. Pallas Athena stations retrograde at the critical degree of 29:29 Libra, giving a focus on the arts. With Uranus opposing Pallas Athena, this is particularly creative aspect in effect all week.

Chiron re-enters Aries at 1:07 a.m. for an eight-year stay. Venus is conjunct Saturn, calling us to our responsibilities regarding love and money. Monday’s alignments can help mediate conflict. The Moon makes a benefic trine to Jupiter at 4:00 p.m. PST. Whatever is at play, this aspect makes everything look like it will all work out well.

The Moon is Full on Tuesday, exact just after it shifts into Virgo. This Full Moon is a Super Moon (close to the Earth) at 0:42 degrees of Pisces (Sun) and Virgo (Moon). This Full Moon is energized by benefic aspects to the Mars-Uranus conjunction. Expect some nice surprises!

Pisces symbolizes the ideal; Virgo symbolizes the practical, get-it-done work ethic. We may face the dilemma of time management regarding what we want to accomplish within the limit of the 24 hours available in a day. Even though our efforts may fall short of our aspirations, a tremendous amount of work can be accomplished in the light of this Full Moon both Tuesday and Wednesday.

Venus is flanked by Saturn on one side and Pluto on the other side, making a conjunction of these three planets in Capricorn. This configuration in the industrious sign of Capricorn also lends itself to hard work and substantial accomplishment within inherent time limitations. Aim high and work efficiently and effectively. Your sustained efforts will deliver impressive results. The Moon is void of course at 5:51 p.m. after it makes a trine to Pluto, a crowning moment for Wednesday’s accomplishments.

Thursday Can Bring Healing

Thursday and Friday, the Moon is in social, copasetic Libra. Thursday morning the Libra Moon opposes Chiron, focusing us on what needs to be healed in our lives. There are no exact major aspects the rest of the day; Jupiter’s Day (Jueves) is a blessed day to go optimistically and savor our relationships.

Meet Challenges Later in the Week with Grace

Friday, however, is a different story, as it is infused with planetary activity, much of it edgy and challenging. Two major aspects color the day: Mercury-square-Jupiter and Venus-conjunct-Pluto. The Mercury/Jupiter aspect may lead us to talk too much, exaggerate or promise more than we can deliver. On the other hand, ideas flow and conversations can be expansive and generative.

The Venus/Pluto aspect may deepen the love we feel and express if we are open and trusting. Friday abounds with aspects between cardinal signs Libra and Capricorn. Cardinal signs are action-oriented signs, so a lot can be accomplished. Meet your challenges with the grace and dignity of the Libra Moon and with the blessings of a benefic sextile from Jupiter.

Saturday and Sunday, we dive deep into our feelings with the arrival of the Moon in Scorpio. Saturday morning may get off to a surprising start, thanks to a Moon-Uranus opposition. A Mercury-Pluto sextile helps us get to the heart of matters, and the aspect is also good for research. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we want to withdraw from the world and take some time for solitude.

We are uplifted on Sunday with benefic aspects from Neptune, Saturn and Pluto to the Moon. Scorpio symbolizes transformation, so this would be a good day to clean up a part of your home and get rid of excess, lifting the vibration of the space to a higher level.

The Week in Short

Monday: Sun moves into Pisces. Chiron moves into Aries for an eight-year stay. Be responsible and considerate with love and money. All will work out well.

Tuesday: Full Moon at 0 degrees Pisces/Virgo. Your aims will exceed what you can accomplish, but nonetheless, you can be super productive.

Wednesday: Impressive results can be realized from strong, focused work.

Thursday: Open to healing and ease into a beautiful day.

Friday: Active, edgy day. Meet challenges with grace and dignity.

Saturday: After a surprising start to the day, take some solitude and honor your feelings.

Sunday: You can transform a portion of your life; release excess.
