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.
