Our patience went out the window a month ago as Jupiter entered Aries and now squares Pluto. We just don’t want to wait any longer, whether for our dreams or our politics.
Rivers feel this rush of impatience as they melt, and dogs feel it while they pace about waiting for a walk. Couples feel impatient to make changes in their relationship and improve their situation. We can certainly feel this impatience in the world movement toward democracy. Efforts may seem to have setbacks right now as the momentum turns inward or hits an uncertain glitch, but they will not stop.
We have a lot of personal feelings to process this week but can find a new sense that the changes coming could actually be good ones as Venus sextiles Uranus and enters Aquarius. This aspect brings a whiff of spring fever, a spark of interest in strangers and adventure, and a newfound pride in our chosen tribes as we reevaluate our social context. But the archetype of the martyr also gets activated this week. Some offering of time, energy, or life can unite people as Mars, now in vulnerable Pisces, moves into a sextile with Pluto. We may also notice the urge to eliminate or purify and start a pre-spring cleaning of the soul first and closets later.
Friday, Feb. 25: Our psychological issues are all over the place and reveal how they affect our sense of the truth as Mercury and the sun sextile Pluto. Missing items, people, and information work their way to the surface, so look again. Major power plays hit the big screen, but at home the effects are more subtle and liberating. Tonight, we unwind better after some excitement.
Saturday, Feb. 26: This morning, a spontaneous moment renews the soul, but we can tense up if someone has an agenda for us. This afternoon, we grow more goal-oriented and willing to work as the moon enters Capricorn. Determination builds. A seriousness or formality may come at nighttime. Depression whispers if we feel aimless or overburdened; confidence grows with security.
Sunday, Feb. 27: We may feel a whiff of sadness and nostalgia for some missing moment. This ache can help us move past the material and reach with our soul for something less transient as the moon conjuncts Pluto. We want help without being trapped or controlled.
Monday, Feb. 28: Compliment others’ competence so it can grow. Evening becomes sociable as the moon conjuncts Venus; it helps to get out of ourselves and pay attention to somebody else.
Tuesday, March 1: We want to do things differently and particularly may need to change how we relate to our social context as the moon and Venus sextile Uranus. There are exciting, affectionate interactions, but don’t take it personally if beloveds are more focused on their social circle than they are on home.
Wednesday, March 2: Wade through logistics and see them as a vehicle for work as Mercury quincunxes Saturn. Don’t procrastinate. Work flows better early in the day; the mood gets more cranky and disconnected later on.
Thursday, March 3: It all gets squishy today as the moon conjuncts Neptune and enters Pisces. Some emotional responsibility can trigger compassion, action, or resentment, depending on our position. We need to care for those in need and honestly ask for help. Don’t be tempted to play the victim unless there is a reason. Find a more empowered position to negotiate.
