OUR MINDS CAN FEEL AS FOGGY as a cloud settling over melting snow — and our boundaries as squishy as newly thawed mud — while the sensitive sun in Pisces conjuncts intuitive Neptune this weekend. This doesn’t need to stop an exciting exchange of ideas, or slow down our efforts to get on with new work that may be fermenting around the edges. We just have to check our facts and our emotional assumptions to make sure we are not projecting our stories onto the people around us.
Our thoughts may turn to our spiritual resources as the political conversation shifts toward religion. If we need to drift and dream, let’s just do so safely, curled up with a good book, and not behind the wheel of a car.
It is a great time to practice our divinatory tools — to tap into Neptune’s gifts and prepare for the new astrological year that begins as the sun enters Aries on the vernal equinox. A solar and lunar eclipse coming over the next few weeks can help us clear room for fresh action, and it would be good to have a vision for where we want to go and what we are clearing room to hold.
Some of those new ideas percolate toward the end of the weekend as Mercury sextiles Uranus. After a slow Monday morning, the energy picks up as the moon enters Sagittarius — we rely on people who have been there for us in the past as Venus sextiles Saturn. We need to pick up the ball again quickly, even if we dropped it over the weekend, and reassure one another of our dependability.
FRIDAY, FEB. 26: Nervousness can be productive as Mercury sextiles electrical Uranus under a friendly Libra moon. People say the strangest things — look for truth embedded in odd comments. Tonight we need to unwind, laugh, and bounce ideas off one another.
SATURDAY, FEB. 27: Maybe nothing feels quite right this moody morning as the moon enters focused, private Scorpio. Our sensitivities can break out in a morose, resentful quality or a tendency to look at worst-case scenarios. Kindness helps. The mood evens out as the moon trines the sun tonight; we need companionable solitude.
SUNDAY, FEB. 28: We feel totally awash as the sun conjuncts Neptune under an introspective Scorpio moon. This can be delightful if we’re safe to drift, dream, and meditate.
MONDAY, FEB. 29: This morning we may be cranky. Make no demands until after lunch as the moon enters Sagittarius and the caffeine kicks in. We’d like reassurance that our contacts are reliable and that our friends are there for us as Venus sextiles Saturn.
TUESDAY, MARCH 1: We may be reactive, responsive, and a little out of it in the morning and have some emotions to work through as Venus semi-sextiles Pluto in the afternoon. Real events can bring up sadness or a fear of loss. Let the poignancy open compassion and help us appreciate one another.
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 2: Serious decisions need to be made on the f ly this morning as the moon conjuncts Saturn, but these can probably be adjusted midday. Creative risks pan out as Venus sextiles Uranus.
THURSDAY, MARCH 3: Work and responsibilities are satisfying but cramp our social style as friendly Venus quincunxes Jupiter and the moon enters industrious Capricorn. Find a way to link form and function. Give people positive feedback on good work. ◀
