Thursday-Sunday 2/16-19/2017: Weekend Forecast
The energy of the day is driven by the Moon in Scorpio, which it enters at 1:41 AM ET. A Scorpio Moon seeks depth and substance for the sake of power and control, and we don’t get a break in the emotional intensity until Saturday afternoon. The only exact pattern is a harmony between Mercury (thinking, speaking) and Mars (doing) at 1:15 PM ET. Make your innovative and inspiring pitch; paint a solid picture of how you will walk your talk. Color the evening a shade of rose, courtesy of a harmony between the Moon and Neptune. Music, spirits, art — or some other visionary escape?
On FRIDAY, a clash of opinion over control is suggested by a challenge between Mercury and the Moon at 9:18 AM ET. Perhaps it will light up your Twitter feed. Moon goes void with a sigh on a harmony with Pluto, digging up dirt and consolidating power. Whatever crisis crops up between 2:38 PM ET and SATURDAY at 1:52 PM ET may well be much ado about nothing. You can skip out early for the holiday weekend without consequence. Chill!
At 6:32 AM ET the Sun enters Pisces. Happy birthday to your favorite fishies! Pisces is a sensitive, intuitive energy that at its best expresses compassion and loving kindness for everyone and everything, in its understanding that we are all One. Being such a sensitive soul is not always easy. Pisces has been known to wallow in suffering. It can go to extremes of surrender in order to escape life’s hard knocks, drowning its sorrows in the nearest rose-colored glass. Pisces is ruled by Neptune, a dreamy energy that can be challenging to integrate, but oh what sublime creative visions it can bring to life, when effectively channeled.
Pisces folk born between February 28 and March 4th should chat with Fish born a few days earlier about how spacey life has seemed in past two years. Lots of potential for creativity and soulful questing, though. Pisces folk born between March 10th and March 19th will be feeling the pressure of Saturn, demanding streamlined plans for advance. May be time to check in with your local astrologer… And that’s not a bad idea for Gemini, Sagittarius and Virgo folk born 10-14 days and 21-28 days into their respective signs. And while we’re on the subject of hot horoscopes, if you are an Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn born about 20 days into your sign, you would benefit from an astrologer’s perspective, too.
At 1:52 PM ET on SATURDAY the Moon enters Sagittarius, needing to express its righteous opinion and push boundaries with enthusiasm. Activities that expand your horizons are favored: a walk in nature; a foreign film. The afternoon is charged by the Third Quarter Moon, advancing the whatever illumination and/or release you experienced on last Friday’s Full Moon and eclipse.
The last time Moon entered Sagittarius this foreign perspective hit the airwaves, soon going viral. Have you seen “America First; Netherlands Second,” a a satirical video introducing The Netherlands to P45? Many other countries have since offered their own introductions; the latest is from India.
Patterns on SUNDAY are dreamy and playful. Patterns on MONDAY are active — mentally and physically. Big ideas and daring action will be front and center for the next two weeks. If you thought this week was full of surprises and shifts, just wait and see. We’ll have Mars (action!) and Jupiter (expansion!) supercharged by disruptive Uranus and power player Pluto…and much, much more.
The news is up next.
