Weekly Forecast ~ Week of February 19th
We are calming down from the stress of last week’s solar eclipse and are finally seeing things start to shift this week. If you have been waiting for something to change, waiting for news, waiting for circumstances to align then we are beginning to see the signs of these things happening!
It’s a relatively quiet week from an astrological perspective but this allows us to put into motion those things within our own control that have been in a holding pattern over the past month due to outside forces. We can take steps now and move forward again in a clear direction.
Monday February 19th ~ What’s going on today: moon in Aries
Aries moon is energetic and wants to be on the go. If you have the day off today for Presidents Day (in the US) go do something active. Get out of the house and explore.
Tuesday February 20th ~ What’s going on today: moon in Aries void-of-course at 4:11 AM MST until moon ingress into Taurus at 12:12 PM MST
Most of the morning the moon is void-of-course which means it is a good time to play catch up on things that have needed attention in your life. Whether this is an overflowing inbox or a cluttered desk or a pile of laundry it’s a good morning to tackle this type of routine responsibility.
Once the moon goes into Taurus we can focus more and access our creativity. We may have a project to work on and Taurus moon is great energy to tap into our inspiration and make something beautiful.
Wednesday February 21st ~ What’s going on today: Venus conjunct Neptune and Mercury sextile Saturn (Moon in Taurus)
What it means: Love. Love. Love. All we need is love. When Venus and Neptune conjoin I call it a “fairy tale romance” aspect. We have our rose colored glasses on and can be quite unrealistic and yet we aim for the stars in our romantic life. This is great energy for visualization and for art projects as well. Not so good for practicality of any sort.
Mercury sextile Saturn allows for a little practical considerations to be taken into account today. I like to think of Mercury and Saturn together as the “problem solvers”. Another key phrase is “critical thinking”. Critical thinking is great when we are solving problems and fixing our lives but not so great when we are criticising ourselves! Use this energy to help solve problems instead of making more problems for yourself, especially if you are prone to negative thinking.
Questions to ask yourself: How can I do something romantic and sweet for myself? How can I add more love into my everyday life? How can I create a more beautiful and supportive environment for myself? What problems are ripe to be solved? How can I think about my situation in a new and better manner?
Thursday February 22nd ~ What’s going on today: moon in Taurus void-of-course at 4:46 AM MST until moon ingress into Gemini at 5:07 PM
We have a void-of-course moon most of the work day which means we need to focus extra hard if we want to accomplish anything. It is too easy to fiddle away the day under an energy like this. This best things to work on are old projects which need to be finished up as well at routine items that never seem to end. Wait until tomorrow if you need to start something new..
Friday February 23rd ~ What’s going on today: moon in Gemini
The Gemini moon is probably the greatest at multitasking. Just be careful that you truly are multitasking and not just letting yourself be distracted by every new thing that comes along today!
Saturday February 24th ~ What’s going on today: moon in Gemini void-of-course at 12:58 PM MST until moon ingress into Cancer at 8:06 PM MST
If you have to get something done today get it done in the morning. That afternoon is best spent lounging around with a good book or playing video games. Once the moon moves into Cancer you may feel like curling up in front of the fireplace and staying cozy and warm at home tonight.
Sunday February 25th ~ What’s going on today: Venus square Mars, Mercury conjunct Neptune, Sun sextile Saturn (moon in Cancer)
What it means: Venus square Mars is classic sexual tension. Take advantage of it today with a good roll in the hay or some flirtatious innuendo. It’s okay to be bold under an aspect like this one!
Mercury conjoins Neptune to add a poetic vibe to the day. Use that poetic license to help romance your sweetheart (in light of the Venus Mars square discussed above).
Sun and Saturn in this configuration are great for productivity and health. So it you aren’t in the mood for poetry or sex it’s a good day to get in a strong workout and check some things off your to do list.
Questions to ask yourself: Where is the sexual tension coming from in my life and what can I do about it? How can I make my thoughts and words more beautiful and poetic? What simple things can I do today to make my life more healthy and productive?
What it on your plate this week? Are you still feeling the eclipse or have you recovered? I for one can still feel it linger but I am on the path to making the magical life I truly desire!
