Your Weekly Astrology Forecast February 10-16

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 sign contracts and complete projects that require communication and getting things in print before the 16th. Mars goes out of bounds on Sunday, often resulting in more erratic behavior and hotter tempers. Mars moves into its exaltation in Capricorn also on February 16th, though the South Node approaches Mars and all these factors with Mars are volatile. Savor the relative calm of the week ahead, as stormy cosmic weather is ahead.

focus & accomplishment to start the week

In the light of the efficient Virgo Moon, Monday is a great day to focus on

completing loose ends and getting organized. As the Moon makes a benefic trine to Jupiter in the late afternoon, we glow about all we have accomplished, and may want to relax in the sweetness of a Moon-Neptune opposition. We can tap into our needs for love, as Venus is conjunct Chiron.

Strong energy for accomplishment is available as the day dawns Tuesday. Get going and get some vigorous exercise. Then from 10:26 a.m. to 3:37 p.m. PST the Moon is void of course; energy is less clearly defined, so it’s good to attend to routine, insignificant tasks during this time. Late afternoon the Moon shifts into Libra, opposing Chiron, and increasing our sensitivity. Enjoy a beautiful dinner with your beloved.

challenges & demands mid-week

An irritating aspect Wednesday between Mercury and Saturn may make us extra cautious about our communication, or it can give extra focus for mental activities. A Moon-Jupiter square may deliver an extra dose of optimism—or overdoing. With the Moon in Libra, we seek beauty. Select beautiful clothes and jewelry to wear; seek elegance and beauty in your environment; and relax into some fine dining.

Thursday is heavy with demanding planetary aspects. The day begins with the Moon’s edgy squares to Pluto and Saturn. The best way to use this challenging energy is to lean in and work hard. A three-hour void Moon period between 1:40 p.m. and 4:37 p.m. calls for a pause prior to the Moon’s deep dive into the murky waters of Scorpio. Expect the unexpected with the erratic energies of Uranus as it opposes the Moon in the evening.

a day of love and an active weekend 

Valentine’s Day falls on Friday, which is Venus’ Day, or Viernes. Since Venus is the planet of love, this alignment sweetens the day. In addition, the day holds several benefic aspects. With the Moon in Scorpio, we want to hold our loved ones close, as well as enjoy some solitude. This is an evening to stay at home and cuddle up. Express your love for those you hold dear.

Get your Saturday shopping and errands done in the early part of Saturday, as the Scorpio Moon goes void of course at 2:20 p.m. PST, and then it’s best to focus on routine household tasks, gardening, or reading, as you may feel a lack of direction. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we seek solitude, so give yourself some time alone. The Moon makes benefic aspects to Pluto and Saturn, so much can be accomplished.  The dark mood lightens in the evening after the Moon moves into Sagittarius at 8:07 p.m. PST.

Sunday is an eventful day in the cosmos. Mercury turns retrograde for a three-week backward spin through March 9th. Mars moves into Capricorn tropically where it is exalted, or high functioning. The Sagittarius Moon trines Venus in Aries. This is a high-powered, spirited day.

The Week in Short:

Monday: Clean up and tidy up, and get a lot accomplished, but give yourself a break to dream a little or escape into a movie in the evening.

Tuesday: Get up and get moving. Moon VoC 10:26 a.m. – 3:37 p.m. PST—focus on routine tasks and enjoy a social evening.

Wednesday: Apply focus to mental tasks, and seek beauty all around you.

Thursday: Lean in and work hard, and expect the unexpected in the evening.

Friday: Love is in the air on Venus’ Day, Valentine’s Day. Express love to those most dear.

Saturday: Do Saturday errands and shopping early, and then tend to routine Saturday chores after 2:20 p.m. PST when the Moon is VoC.

Sunday: Mercury goes retrograde. Sunny, active day. Hike, bike, go! And dream your next travel adventure.
