A lovely alignment between the Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn today, sets off the energy of the week. This loosely means our feelings, drive, truth and responsibility are aligned with our ambitions. We are willing to work hard to make our dreams come true. Mars also passed behind the Moon in a rare occultation today. This week, women might have the upper hand in negotiations and rewards, or men might find themselves satisfied with being in a supportive position in their relationships with women.
This week is the dark of the Moon – it’s waning 4th quarter. Take some time for solitude and to tie up loose ends. Reflect and envision what you’d like to create in March, and begin it on Sunday. Mercury has also gone Retrograde, so we are experiencing a natural “pause” at this time. What can you go back and redo or rework? Mercury Retrograde is also a great time to tell the truth about anything you’ve been repressing, as well as experimentation.
Wednesday, February 19 – Moon in Capricorn. Day of hard work and applying yourself. Privately, allow yourself to engage in spiritual practices that include discipline. Not a good day to get concessions from authority. Use caution when networking or exploring options.
Thursday, February 20th – Moon in Aquarius. Focus on groups and teamwork. Also, think ahead to the future and your goals.
Friday, February 21st – Moon in Aquarius. We are coming down to the lowest energy of our Moon cycle, and preparing for rebirth in the New Moon in Pisces on Sunday.
Saturday, February 22nd – Moon in Pisces.
