This week the main player is the trickster Mercury in its retrograde cycle, and although this cycle began last week it is this week we feel the full force of what happens when the planet of communications, technology, and travel is out of sorts.
On Friday night (Feb. 28), What the Stars Say will present the full astrology forecast for the month of March. Join us from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. at Spiritworks. Tickets are available here.
MONDAY: Who turned on the FOG MACHINE? Fingers point to Neptune who is now in sextile with the New Moon in Pisces. It’s foggy, head in the clouds, and confusing energy. We’re feel pushed on the outside when we just want to focus on what’s inside and not be rushed or managed. The New Moon in Pisces occurred over the weekend, but it’s energy is with us as the week begins and we’re being asked to examine what holds us back and to dare to dream BIG.
TUESDAY: It’s important to watch for misunderstandings in emotionally delicate conversations today. It’s best to avoid such conversations all together, but if you happen to fall into one filter your speaking. The Mercury Retrograde and Pisces influences have us in a time ripe for miscommunications and misunderstandings. The FOG MACHINE is still turned on, and it’s in your best interest to focus on your business and to mind your own business. Just worry about yourself today.
WEDNESDAY: The Moon is now in the Aries constellation and Mars is action oriented in Capricorn. It’s all forward movement, but today is a horrible day for forward movement. Lay low. There are about 3-4 days of the year where the celestial create a formation with the Mercury Retrograde that make it the worst time for missed connections, breakdowns, misunderstandings, shady deals, misleading information, and a need to read the fine print. This isn’t a day for anything new – it’s a day to review what is already in existence.
THURSDAY: The Aries Moon forms a square to Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, and asks us to curb our impatience and chill out a bit. Instead of rushing take the time to pause, reflect, and read the fine print. In your personal interactions, challenge yourself to listen more than you speak and show patience to others. The Aries Moon is impatient and hot-headed, so be mindful of an urge to rush at others with your emotional needs and wants. Chill out a bit. (People born with a Cancer Sun really need to chill out since the Venus and Aries Moon combo will affect them strongly this week).
FRIDAY: The Moon shifts from the fiery Aries constellation into earthy Taurus, and feels at home as the day begins. This Moon energy makes us feel more comfortable in our own skin, and gives us a moment of emotional relaxation after a tense week. The Sun is in a harmonious placement to Mars (Planet of Action) in the hardworking Capricorn constellation, and Mercury (still in its retrograde cycle) is also in harmony with Uranus bringing unexpected thoughts and communication.
SATURDAY: Venus (Planet of Love, Art, Beauty) is at a square with Pluto and will cause some tension in relationships. Is the love your offering patient and kind? Venus is still in Aries and demanding instant gratification and attention, but if this is isn’t possible examine what is possible (and is it patient and kind?). Mercury continues to bring unexpected communications during its retrograde, making this a weekend ideal for hearing from an old friend, ex love, or distant family member.
SUNDAY: March begins! The Moon will shift from earthy Taurus to talkative and airy Gemini this afternoon, and bring us out of our inward focus and back into real communication with others. With the Moon at a square with Mercury we have to be think before we speak and be careful not to open old wounds or to cause new injuries.
