Friday, February 17— Between 7 and 9 a.m. the Moon in emotionally intense Scorpio will be in an awkward aspect (mathematical relationship) with Mercury in Aquarius. Emotions and rational thinking are at odds. This makes it difficult to think clearly. Between 12:30 and 2:30 p.m. the Moon in Scorpio will be nicely aspecting Pluto in Capricorn, bringing profound realizations. If you observe your thoughts carefully, you will find you’re able to kick back mentally and let go of devotion to your opinion. In this process you’re free from repetitive thinking and in comes realization, as if out of the blue, from your higher (divine) self. “There will be an answer, let it be. Let it be, let it be. Let it be, let it be. Yeah, there will be an answer, let it be.”

Saturday, February 18— The Sun leaves Aquarius and enters into Pisces at 6:32 a.m. and remains in this adaptable water sign until March 20. During this phase, while the Sun is in Pisces, we all tend to be a bit more emotional (it’s a water sign). You’ll notice that you cry more easily. This releases and washes clean old feelings, purifies the memories where old stuck feelings have remained for too long. Allow yourself to let go of the past. This is a fine time for a cleansing massage or spa treatment to prepare for spring. My teacher used to refer to Pisces as “the dustbin of the zodiac.” That means all the qualities of all the signs get swept up into this sign. There is a complicated mix of positive and negative talents and patterns to unravel and weave in. Clear up the past and move into the future. It’s an ideal time to unblock energy that is tied up in old resentments, prejudice and ideas of how life is “supposed” to be, or not be. Your talents can manifest more easily when you free yourself from the past. Mercury is in a fine aspect with Uranus, known to increase intuition, create brilliant inventions, and stimulate productive conversations. This aspect is with us till Monday.

Sunday, February 19— Mercury is in a fine aspect to Jupiter and Uranus. For those who love to write, go for it. If you have been told by an astrologer that your chart shows talent for writing but you’ve never tried it, now is the time to find out if it’s true or not. Your intuition ought to be especially strong. If you play in a band, improvising together would prove to be more fun than you’ve had in ages! From 8 until 10 a.m. the Moon will nicely aspect Venus, an ideal aspect for socializing. Between 10:45 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. the Moon will be awkwardly aspecting Neptune, causing a foggy mind. Mars will be roughly aspecting Pluto until Wednesday, indicating competition and corruption. There’s more to be said about this aspect.

Monday, February 20— Mars is still roughly aspecting Pluto, bringing confrontation, shame, blame and discomfort. It’s a dangerous aspect when egos collide and fighting erupts. It can bring extreme results if left unchecked. The news could be unsettling. With Mercury still aspecting Jupiter and Uranus, speaking out and expressing your concerns to your political representatives will make a difference. Your intuition is strong between 7:30 and 11:45 a.m. while the Moon is favorably aspecting Jupiter and Uranus. From 4:30 until 6:30 p.m. your concentration improves while the Moon is conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius. Mercury ends its positive aspect to Uranus at midnight.

Tuesday, February 21— Mercury is still aspecting Jupiter, until 5 p.m. Put your mind to good use. Express your ideas with humor. This is an excellent day to be teaching and also to be learning. Your mind is quickened and open to learning. Mercury is aspecting Saturn until tomorrow. This aspect helps with concentration and self-discipline. Mars, still in a rough aspect to Pluto, is a concern. Conflict happens. Anger is likely to rise up as if out of nowhere.

Wednesday, February 22— Mars ends its rough aspect to Pluto today at 8 a.m. The Moon will be conjunct Pluto in Capricorn from 12:30 until 2:30 p.m. This is a sure indicator of intense emotions that activate profound realizations. Hopefully you aren’t stuck viewing your life in a particular way. From 1:15 until 3:15 p.m. the Moon will be in a challenging aspect to Mars, known to stimulate anger and impatience. From 6:45 until 10:30 p.m. the Moon will be in an awkward aspect to both Jupiter and Uranus. Your expectations do not match with circumstances and you wish it were different. This outlook will bring upsetting emotions. Try to be more adaptable.

Thursday, February 23— Mercury is aspecting Saturn until midnight. It’s a good time to be involved in a project that requires attention to detail. Mars is now conjunct Uranus in Aries, until Sunday night. This is an accident-prone time requiring caution. It also brings anger, impatience and conflict. It’s smart to know about this and avoid hostile individuals. Be careful while driving.
