Week Ahead – Monday, February 19th through Sunday, February 25th

Happy Sunday everyone! We are in the third quarter of February, many hoping for spring to hurry up already. Today has a sleepy vibe to it because of the Sun making its move into Pisces. But we also have the Moon moving into Aries, which wants us to get up and get active. So a combo of the two is in order for today. Let’s see what this week has in store for us.

Monday brings us a trine between the Mars and the North Lunar Node. Mars’ interaction with the North Node is the most dynamic. It gives us the courage we need to follow through on our new ideas, as well as helping us to strike out on our own. Our actions and timing tend to feel in sync with socially accepted norms. The only thing to be careful about is that we tend to take risks under this transit.

Tuesday sees the Moon going Void of Course just before Noon, where it will remain until the early evening when it then moves into Earthy Taurus. When the Moon moves into 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 the signing of contracts or important papers, because we may make mistakes due to a slowed down reaction and thinking process.

Wednesday brings us a conjunction between Venus and Neptune, which can bring a time of romance and dreamy desire, or self-serving negotiation and deceptive manipulation. The upside of this transit is that it can inspire a lot of creativity and healing faith in abundance and love. We are more open to lofty possibilities of our ability to draw to us what and who we desire in relationships. The problem here is that we need to have a realistic approach to the views and actions necessary to fully realize our potential. So assessing these areas won’t come easily right now.

During this time, if you find yourself considering any major changes that involve tapping into resources, income, and investments, it would be a good idea to do a reality check with someone who you trust. We also have a sextile between Mercury and Saturn, a supportive transit that can help us to bring mental and disciplinary influences together to create a balanced atmosphere for working together.

Thursday is a quiet one, aside from a Void of Course Noon occurring just before noon. The Moon moves into Gemini just after midnight and into Thursday morning. The Moon is the instinctual side of life, so when there’s a lunar Gemini mood, the trickster is afoot. Humour becomes a way of defusing super serious situations. This can also be a period of emotional change: feeling two ways at once without getting too deep into either polarity is possible. Habits are in a cycle of change; variety satisfies a deep inner need. Being on the go and keeping a finger to the winds of change make you feel in touch.


Saturday brings a more relaxed energy our way, with the Moon going Void of Course in the early evening. As we move into Sunday we will feel the restlessness of the Gemini Moon gives way to an instinctive need for peace and quiet today as the Moon moves into Cancer. Under Cancer’s influence, people become more sensitive and go deeper into their inner world, which takes on more importance at this time than the outer world. A feeling of belonging and safety is what motivates us under this influence. The Moon feels right at home in the sign of Cancer, as it rules the sign. This Moon position has much healing potential. Although insular by nature, our feelings run deep, making it an ideal time to get in touch with what motivates us. We want roots; we crave a sense of intimate connection that will.

Sunday is a busy day in the skies. We have a square between Venus and Mars, which makes our diplomatic and receptive side a bit argumentative with our more decisive and assertive side. We may feel a battle of wills between our yin and yang sides here, or we could find a way to harness both of these energies creatively.
Social blunders are a possibility now and we need to be wary of making impulse purchases. Those who are prone to drama and attention seeking could very well stir up problems in order to fulfil a need for excitement. Then there is a conjunction between Mercury and Neptune, which can stimulate our creativity. Our imaginations can really soar here as insights become more magical and richer.

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. Lastly, we have a sextile between the Sun and Saturn, where we feel more able to effectively take care of loose ends and attend to small details, especially the ones we dislike. Focusing on practical matters and getting organized are good things to focus on now, especially if you are laying the foundation for something positive to grow.
