A full Moon in Leo, along with the Mars/Venus conjunction aspect in Capricorn makes for a new beginning in professional relationships, marriage or a love match. Mercury ingress to Aquarius, promotes the egalitarian ideal. Jupiter in a sextile aspect to Uranus in Taurus expands the volatility in financial matters. The Sun ingress to Pisces on Saturday the 19th of February, with the Moon in Libra, as we, a hypothetical universal we, strive to balance the rational with the irrational, the imagined with the real.
Summary of Major Aspects of the Week
Wednesday February 16 — What is amazing here, is that a slower moving planet, Mars, overtakes a speedier planet, Venus, an interior planet that rotates the Sun within the Earth’s orbit. At the exact degree of the full Moon today, Mars and Venus are at the same degree and minute of longitude. Mars has been trailing Venus for two weeks. As Venus was stationary retrograde, and on January 28th stationary direct, the apparent speed of Venus will now accelerate, although remaining in a close conjunction aspect in Capricorn until mid-March. Mars is the standard aggressor, while Venus has the power of attraction. In Capricorn, traditional values, patriarchal values are within the realm of actions. Deviant behaviors are punished. The aggressor must yield to the cultural values. Uranus in Taurus, however, indicates radical and innovative values, for example the virtual monetary system that is innovative departure from tradition, in the age of the Internet. Jupiter in Pisces magnifies the irrational, and in a sextile aspect with Uranus, the two powers are working together, seeking to undermine the status quo. The full Moon in Aquarius celebrates love and friendships.
Thursday February 17th — The Moon in Virgo is in an opposition aspect to Jupiter in Pisces. Practical, earthly remedial issues challenge the increasing dissolution of order, threatening as well as absorbing territory. Mars supersedes Venus by a small increment with a role of protection, although with shared power Venus exerts influence to modify aggressive instincts. Both are disposited by Saturn in Aquarius, the standard that is associated with transcendent visionaries, as the future is molded by the progressive interactions of the present. Jupiter reaches the partile sextile aspect with Uranus, seeming to signify that the more radical actions, the iconoclastic egregious behaviors become censored by the hand of justice, as the Moon in Virgo adds a modifying influence with a trine aspect to Uranus.
Friday February 18th — The Moon in Virgo forms the trine aspect to Venus and Mars in Capricorn early today followed by the opposition aspect to Neptune in Pisces. Preparedness brings about a de-escalation of threat. The balance of victim or predator, victimization of aggressor, need clarification. The Sun ingress to Pisces later in the day, opening opportunity for concessions, as the will to power becomes a will to dissolve, possibly relinquishing power. The Moon in ingress to Libra late in the day, Saturday morning in Europe, as well as Ukraine, Russia, and all of the eastern hemisphere.
Saturday February 19th — The Moon in Libra is trine aspect to Mercury in Aquarius, indicating a renewal of negotiations. The Moon is in an opposition aspect to Chiron, evoking inner wisdom, then in quincunx aspect to Uranus in Taurus and Jupiter in Pisces, as Uranus and Jupiter are sextile aspect to one another, forming a Yod configuration, seeking to tame the non-conformist. The radical elements are corralled, with the modifying influence of Jupiter and the Moon.
Sunday February 20th — The Moon in Libra is trine aspect to Saturn in Aquarius early in the day, afternoon hours in the eastern hemisphere, as the prospects for a peaceful solution improve. A few hours later, the Moon is square aspect to Venus and Mars in Capricorn. Arguments and controversy might again erupt. The Moon’s quincunx aspect to Neptune in Pisces follows. Creative adjustments could bring about a resolution of the dispute. The Moon’s square aspect to Pluto overnight in the US happens before the Moon’s ingress to Scorpio. Challenges to power disrupt dreams.
Monday February 21st — Morning in the eastern hemisphere, the Moon in Libra and in a square aspect to Pluto in Capricorn, as dictates of power are created. The Moon ingress to Scorpio follows as punishments are announced. The Moon trine aspect to the Sun in Pisces evokes compassion and empathy.
Tuesday February 22nd — The Moon in Scorpio makes the opposition aspect to Uranus in Taurus overnight in the US, a trine aspect to Jupiter in the morning and trine aspect to Neptune in the afternoon, as hope and joy is followed by a denouement. A power struggle is followed by renewed hope for peace, as concessions may be announced. A disappointment to many although progress is possible.
Have an interesting week.
Reminder: While lunar aspects are in effect only for only a few hours, the aspect of the outer planets can last days and weeks. I post a reading for a day in advance in order to give a preview, and also because the aspects may be in effect a day earlier.
