Your Weekly Astrology Forecast for February 4–11, 2018

This week we are in-between the first two eclipses of 2018. The Total Full Moon eclipse at 11:37 Leo/Aquarius occurred last Wednesday, the January 31. A partial eclipse of the Sun occurs at 27:08 degrees of Aquarius on February 15. This could be a rather intense week flanked by these eclipses, though the other planetary energy is not extraordinary. The Sun shines in Aquarius, the zodiac sign symbolizing friendship, groups, organizations and societal concerns. A fixed air sign, Aquarius foster scientific exploration and invention. The Moon is void of course (VoC) for long periods on Monday and Saturday. When the Moon is void of course, energy does not connect. It is not a good time for meetings, shopping or anything requiring decisions or definition. To best plan your week, consider using those days for cleaning, gardening, reading or walking.

The Week Begins on a Sensible Note

We are blessed with a beautiful Sunday to begin the week. The day is colored with benefic aspects to a suave Libra Moon (Mercury and Sun trine Moon, Moon sextile North Node). In addition, Pallas Athena trines Saturn; this combination in earth signs Taurus/Capricorn gives us the capacity to sensibly plan and strategize the week ahead.

Although Monday may start with a surprising jolt (Moon opposite Uranus), the Moon is VoC nearly all day from 10:46am through 7:56pm PST. Energy during this void period will be vague and undefined. It is not a Monday for sound decisions. Lower your expectations and tend to simple, routine tasks.

A Scorpio Moon Brings Good Luck Midweek

Feelings are deeply stirred by the Scorpio Moon Tuesday and Wednesday. A benefic Venus-Uranus sextile could result in some new relationship events or opportunities. Seize the gifts of the day! Benefic lunar aspects to Saturn and Neptune bookend the day, making for a strong, responsible start and a soft, restful end to the day.

Although Wednesday is mixed with challenging and benefic aspects, the fortuitous Moon-Jupiter conjunction is the trump card. Count on some good luck and a lift of heart and mind.

Bounce out of bed early on Thursday and catch the lift of the Sag Moon! Get yourself to the gym—your body wants to move. Dance, hike, or even consider a horseback ride. The Moon-Mars conjunction calls for adventure.

The Weekend is Primed for Being Social

Friday is fun, framed by a Sagittarius Moon. The morning can be a bit cloudy and confusing. The afternoon calls for a satisfying social soiree with friends.

The Moon is VoC all day Saturday from 8:38am to 6:21pm PST. This is not a day for getting a lot accomplished. Take a hike, or go on a trip to explore new territory and expand your worldview through cultural experience.

In contrast to Saturday’s optimistic, explorative, but indefinite energy, Sunday is made for focus, work and attending to responsibilities. You can tackle a big project, and yet relax a little in the evening in preparation for a strong workday Monday.

The Week in Short

Sunday: A blessed, beautiful day. Sensibly plan the week ahead.

Monday: The morning may be full of surprise. Then the Moon is VoC all day, so attend to routine tasks after 10:46am PST.

Tuesday: The day starts strong and ends soft. Open to new relationship opportunities.

Wednesday: Feelings run deep with the Scorpio Moon. Expect some good luck!

Thursday: Answer the call for adventure, and get your body moving.

Friday: Optimism colors your world. Make it a social day and gather with people who uplift you.

Saturday: Moon VoC all day from 8:38am to 6:21pm PST. Take off on an adventure and explore something new.

Sunday: Focus and tackle a big project. Relax a little in the evening and appreciate all that you accomplished.
