Your Weekly Astrology Forecast February 16-23

The Sun enters Pisces tropically on Tuesday, February 18th. Mercury is retrograde for the next three weeks beginning Sunday, February 16, a time to review, revise, re-adjust, and renovate. Also on Sunday, Mars goes out of bounds and conjuncts the South Node of the Moon. When Mars is out of bounds we may experience more erratic behavior and hotter tempers. The Mars/South Node conjunction signals a volatile period the few days before and after. Go slowly, stay conscious, and keep your cool.

dreamy, visionary days to start the week

Monday, President’s Day, is colored by the sunny Sagittarius Moon. It’s a dreamy, visionary day.

The Sun enters Pisces tropically on Tuesday, signaling the last month of winter and the last month of the annual zodiacal cycle. The Moon enters cardinal, action-oriented Capricorn and soon after conjuncts Mars and the South Node early in the morning. Arise and get your exercise game going. The Moon trines Uranus, perhaps bringing some nice surprises. The day is bold and exciting. Make things happen.

The encompassing energies of Wednesday combine strong, grounded, practical energy with vision and inspiration. The Jupiter-Neptune sextile, exact Thursday, is amplified by a Jupiter conjunction to the Moon. We reach for our dreams. Stretch yourself and apply your strong work ethic to move mountains.

challenging, inspiring days mid-week

The more difficult conjunctions of the Moon with Saturn and Pluto occur as we sleep, with the Moon-Saturn conjunction beginning a Moon void of course period from 6:18 a.m. through 11:42 a.m. on Thursday. Do not expect a crisp start to your morning, so plan accordingly the night before. Stick to routine tasks in the morning, and refrain from meetings that will go nowhere. At 11:42 a.m. PST the Moon moves into friendly, freedom loving Aquarius. Jupiter and Neptune culminate in an exact sextile, a creative, visionary aspect. The planetary energies of Thursday invite us to imagine a better world and a brighter future.

Mars forms two aspects on Friday: a benefic trine to Uranus that encourages building and innovation, and an edgy square to Chiron, beckoning us to break free toward our own path. With the Moon in Aquarius, the day calls us to gather with friends for fun and fellowship.

a free-form, drifting weekend 

The Moon is void of course all day Saturday; thus, the day is less clearly defined and open to meanderings. Allow yourself to drift wherever your energy wants to flow. Garden, attend to chores, read a book, visit a friend, or putter in your home. The Sun is sextile Uranus, so we want to express our individuality, and we may happen upon some great discoveries. Enjoy this free-form day. The Moon is dark, so take some solitude for yourself.

Sunday sports a New Moon in Pisces early morning PST. Numerous aspects make this an active day; yet, the Moon is in Pisces, so we prefer to dream and create. Be artful in your expression of this day.
