Hello and Happy Tuesday!
Did you jump out of bed this morning with a start? If so, your horoscope may have been personally affected by the jolt, disruption and/or revelation suggested by the Moon’s weekly encounter with the never-ending Uranus-Pluto square, exact today at 9AM ET and 2:04PM ET. Today’s Moon has been fully engaged in relationship-oriented Libra since 1:23PM ET on Monday, seeking appreciation, peace and rational discourse. Toss in a buoyant and expansive/expensive challenge to the Moon from jolly Jupiter, exact at 10:18AM ET, and you’ve got a recipe for plenty of ideas and rational debate on the pros and cons of a joint endeavor, negotiated with care, mind you, given Mercury retrograde’s notorious capriciousness over critical facts and details. Double check everything!
What serious focus was on your plate around January 25th? That’s when mental Mercury made a challenging connection to disciplined Saturn, suggesting a need to structure a weighty idea. You’ll have a opportunity to REview that issue again this week, suggested by a repeat of this pattern, exact at 2:11AM ET on Wednesday. A third and final assessment is suggested around March 11th, when Mercury will once again be direct in motion. You’re more personally affected by this pattern if you were born around the 11th of November, February, May or August…or if you have a planet or angle around 21-24 degrees of Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. If you do not know the degrees of planets and angles in your horoscope, consider ordering a Astro-Basics Report, available here.
Other than the mental focus suggested by the Mercury-Saturn square, the rest of the week has no other exact aspects, save for connections to the Moon. Lunar aspects do not linger, as the Moon moves fast. Things may feel more in flux. And speaking of flux, today at 1PM ET, the Sun leaves the fixed, cerebral energy of Aquarius for the dreamy, emotional flux of Pisces.
The mantra for Pisces is “I BELIEVE”. It is ruled by nebulous Neptune, which can range from the sublimely sensitive to the dangerously deluded. Empathy and compassion for all who suffer; understanding that we all come from the same Source; the intuition that flows from understanding this connection; and the melancholy that results when such depth of feeling can not be communicated (Pisces — the Fish — is a mute sign) — these are some Piscean scenarios. Add imagination, escapism, and vulnerability to this mix. Will we sink or will we swim?
Meanwhile, heads up if you have a planet or angle around 27 degrees of Libra, Capricorn, Aries and Cancer…or if you were born around the 16th of January, April, July or October. You may be feeling especially feisty for the next three weeks, as Mars, planet of war (downside), courage (upside) and action (good or bad — you choose) will be sitting at 27 Libra as it prepares to turn retrograde on March 1st. A constructive physical outlet is recommended, to ward off chances of feeling vaguely irritable and easily provoked. On the other hand, you may find your stamina is up, as is a willingness to act on a (hopefully) constructive project.
Heads up also if you have a planet or angle around 10 degrees of Cancer, Libra, Capricorn or Aries…or if you were born around the 1st of just about any month. Jupiter, the cosmic sugar daddy, is camping out at 10 Cancer (preparing to turn direct) from now until March 24th, presenting a lengthy window of potential good times and opportunities for expansion.

True to the spirit of the Mercury retrograde, I unplugged myself from my computer over the weekend, in favor of rest and relaxation. No news is good news. What did I miss?
