In the Stars February 24-March 3, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week

The Sun shines in Pisces, the zodiac sign symbolizing vision, beauty, inspiration, spirituality, creativity, and compassion. This week’s blog is dedicated to my new grandson, Gracian Cole Jacobson, born with the Sun in Pisces, Moon in Libra tropically on February 21 at 1:23 p.m in Newton, Massachusetts.

With the Sun in Pisces our hearts are full of compassion for those less fortunate. Give a gift of gratitude for your life to someone, or some group, who is experiencing difficulty. Uplift your life by visiting an art gallery, writing a poem, or enjoying a music concert. Mercury turns retrograde on March 5th, so it is time to make travel plans and tie up loose ends.

Our feelings run deep while the Moon is in Scorpio through mid-day Monday. Sunday holds benefic aspects from Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto to the Moon. Scorpio symbolizes transformation, so this would be a good day to clean up a part of your home and get rid of excess, lifting the vibration of the space to a higher level.

Monday will be off to a slow and undefined start with the Moon void of course in Scorpio all morning until 1:19 p.m. PST. Then the Moon moves into fiery, optimistic Sagittarius, and we are off to the races, ready to make the most of the week ahead.

Tuesday and Wednesday are energetic, optimistic days, fueled by the fire of the Sagittarius Moon.  The Moon-Neptune square on Tuesday may fill us with a desire to set sail for far away shores. This is a good day to dream of possibilities and expansive travel, or travel to other worlds by reading an inspiring book.

A benefic Sun-Mars sextile on Wednesday gives us strength and confidence. The Moon makes a benefic trine to free-thinking Uranus. These aspects enable us to move toward our goals and experiment with some new ideas.

Thursday and Friday are framed for hard work and resolve. Take the lead on Thursday, and put your best foot forward. Take courage from the Mars-Moon trine in earth signs Taurus and Capricorn.

Friday is an edgy day; a Venus-Uranus square at the anaretic, or last degree, of cardinal signs Aries and Capricorn may result in some unexpected twists and turns. Put you mind to the business at hand, and dig in. Make the most of these end-or-the-work-week days that are framed for hard work and accomplishment. Handle obstacles with patience and resolve.

While Saturday morning still calls for responsibility and hard work, the load lightens, and we detach emotionally on Saturday afternoon through Monday. With the Moon in Aquarius, these days highlight friendships, groups, and social causes, about which we feel passionate. Connect with friends. Make a donation to a favorite cause, or make a move to volunteer for some community service you’ve been thinking about. Venus is now in Aquarius, making us more detached about matters of love and money.

On Sunday we are goaded by a Mars-Moon square, best used for exercise and movement. Take a hike with a friend. get moving!

On Monday Jupiter aligns with the Moon in a benefic sextile, blessing us. Our work week will be off to an optimistic start.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
