THIS IS A MOODY, MULTILAYERED WEEK. The sun enters Pisces and approaches conjunction with intuitive, confusing Neptune, which can leave us seeming soft and ephemeral, like fog over snow. We may feel permeable, indefinite, a little emotional, unusually vulnerable, and therefore a bit self-protective.
Underneath lies a more cheerfully stubborn, sociably political awareness, which can both keep the conversation going but also cause us to feel a little disconnected, with Mercury and Venus in abstracted Aquarius. Because of that emotional disconnect, we can speak poetically and almost convincingly about tough subjects. But it can be hard to trust what people say if they sound like they’re trying a little too hard to convince us.
Notice also an extra bite when charm wears thin, as Mars in Scorpio squares that Venus and Mercury. We can surprise ourselves with a brief but primitive desire to lash out when our feelings are hurt. Couples may find themselves working at cross purposes unless they consciously bring themselves into rhythm. Let’s stay humbly sensitive to the fact we may not be completely tuned-in to the needs of our partners.
Over the weekend, a charismatic Leo moon brings out our extroverted side and adds to the stubbornness. An industrious streak early next week gets us back on track, but it is important to take care of health and digestion — we can somaticize our sensitivities under a full moon in Virgo.
Toward the end of the week we need to buckle down to our work and focus on logistics as Mercury sextiles Saturn. Take care of those details before they become a problem, then safely drift in the fog and dream by the fire.
FRIDAY, FEB. 19: Take advantage of a busy spell in the morning as the moon trines Mars, and then kick back. People are vulnerable — friendly, but not willing to push themselves outside of their comfort zone. The Leo moon brings more enthusiasm and humor tonight.
SATURDAY, FEB. 20: Morning gets off to a rocky start as the moon opposes Venus. Uncontrollable variables can be inconvenient, but the spirit is willing. Some people’s feelings grandstand inappropriately, but if we don’t pout, the evening softens and brings a healing camaraderie.
SUNDAY, FEB. 21: It feeds the soul to walk in a museum or find another way of respecting beauty. If opinions f lare around dinner, don’t let the tug-of-war actually step on tender feelings. Tonight we easily lose our sense of humor.
MONDAY, FEB. 22: Work is stressful as we head into a full moon in Virgo this morning and deadlines loom. It may appear that work requirements pull us away from our dreams or our spiritual practice, but that’s an illusion. Calm down and don’t buy into anxiety.
TUESDAY, FEB. 23: Energy is low, scattered, a little anxious, with bursts of competence mixed in with the desire to get away from it all. If we don’t spread ourselves out too thin, we can juggle it all. Release a burden and make more room in the heart tonight.
WEDNESDAY, FEB. 24: The fog thickens; follow up carefully on what needs to be done. Morning may be cranky, but people grow more cooperative as the moon enters Libra midafternoon.
THURSDAY, FEB. 25: Nostalgia f loats through the morning as Mercury sextiles Saturn. Check in with friends and work connections midday as the moon trines Venus. Deal with potentially difficult news or depressing thoughts around dinnertime.
