Week Ahead – Monday February 27th through Sunday March 5th

  • Posted on February 26, 2017 at 7:30 am


Happy Sunday everyone! We are nearly at the end of another month and signs of Spring are in the air finally. Today we are under the influence of a New Moon/Solar Eclipse. A Solar Eclipse represents the rise of new projects from our very depths, but this will be the last in a group of Pisces/Virgo Eclipses for another 9 years. So we get this sense of endings and beginnings with this one. Pisces likes to retreat and separate itself from all of those strong emotions that come with a New Moon/Solar Eclipse, so take some time for yourself today. Now, let’s see what the rest of this week has in store for us!

Monday brings aggressive Mars into an opposition with Jupiter, and this is a build up of energy that has been going on for the past week. From today, until 7 days ahead, we will need to check that our spiritual inspirations are in balance with our ego based desires. This transit brings both a time of inspired action, as well as brash overconfidence that we need to temper with action and patience. We end the evening with a Void of Course Moon.

Tuesday morning is when the Moon starts its shift from dreamy and diffused Pisces to fired up Aries in the wee hours. Some may actually feel this shift more than others. An Aries Moon tends to bring conflict more than most times, with emotional tensions growing, people becoming short-tempered and impulsive. Some may show a readiness and fearlessness to act in an extreme situation. Even the sweetest tempered person can become a bit mean under this moon. However, it becomes easier to shake old problem and the weight of tiresome responsibility. We want to free ourselves from everything that bothers us and makes our lives feel uneasy. Wednesday the first day of a new month, is a quiet one in the skies for us.

Thursday begins with an early morning Void of Course Moon that will shift into Taurus as we begin our day. In Taurus we feel the tension of the past few days start to drop away. People tend to become calmer and peaceful. We feel secure and stable. There is also this tendency for our thoughts and reactions to slow down, making us feel a bit slow in getting ourselves going. This is the best time for taking care of the home, running errands, restocking supplies and tending to routine maintenance. Its best to hold off on important business now,as well as signing of contracts or important papers, because we may make mistakes due to a slowed down reaction and thinking process. We have a conjunction between the Sun and Neptune as well, which tends to bring a period of heightened creativity our way. It’s not necessarily creative in an artistic sense but it will definitely involved taking a more inspired approach to challenges and problems before us. Lastly, we have an opposition between Jupiter and Uranus taking place today. This is a transit that greatly increases our need for excitement and personal freedom. We tend to feel a strong urge to rebel or react against anything that we feel is blocking us from having fun and doing the things we want. There is a tendency under this transit to want to renew and start fresh. The problem here is that the more extreme the change is that we encounter, the harder it can be for us and those around us to adjust. Try to keep it in balance.


Friday is another quiet one in the skies for us, with a mid-afternoon Void of Course Moon that will take us into the wee hours of the weekend. The wee hours of Saturday brings the Moon into Gemini, where we become active, feel stronger emotional sensitivity and a need for socializing. Its a good energy for having a social and communicative weekend. The Moon in Gemini is light-hearted, breezy, and curious, but it can also be restless and fickle. It is good time however, to be on the move, travelling short distances in order to fulfil that need for new impressions, and meeting up with friends and relatives. We also have Mercury in a conjunction with Neptune today, an energy that stimulates our intuitive creativity. So you may get insights into your own mind and/or into others’ behaviour.

For those who are more sensitive to this transits energies, a need for finding quiet time to meditate or just be alone with our thoughts could be strong. Our mental focus can become a bit blurred and conscious reasoning can be distorted by subconscious matter. So concentrating on cold hard facts can be challenging. Daydreaming, visualization, and prophecy are stimulated. Communications may be unclear, vague, or downright confused. You could be subject to deception. Avoid signing contracts under this influence.

Saturday is also the day the planet of love and money goes retrograde. Many will have felt an intense energy in the areas of relationships, beauty, finances, harmony and self worth. Its a similar cycle to Mercury retrograde, in that we tend to go back over ground that we already covered in order to refine and adjust those areas in our lives that Venus affects. This will be affecting us until mid April.

Sunday brings a harmonious trine between Mars and Saturn, making it a good time for taking disciplined action that can help us produce specific, stable and grounded results. If you have any projects that need that push forward to the next stage, this transit can help you do that. We tend to feel more “together” and capable under this transit, and it can help us to sustain any physical energy needed without burning ourselves out too fast. Remember, the effects of this transit typically last only about a week or two, so make the most of it!
