Wednesday, February 12 — From 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. the Moon in Libra will be awkwardly aspecting Mercury. Words don’t come out the way you intended. The Moon in Libra strives for balance and good communication; an inability at this time to accurately describe thoughts and feelings is frustrating. Feeling misunderstood brings about tension and discouragement; this does not last long. From 7 until 11 p.m. the Moon will be aspecting Jupiter and Neptune. Your opinion is off track and not objective; confusion sets in when someone questions your sources.

Thursday, February 13 — Between 7:15 and 10:15 a.m. the Moon, still in Libra, will be aspecting both Pluto in Capricorn and the Sun in Aquarius. This phase brings about realizations that are uncomfortable yet expansive; you’re letting go of past beliefs that have hindered your ability to understand certain things. Between 11:34 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. your mood is gloomy while the Moon is in a challenging aspect with Saturn in Capricorn. Your energy picks up from 2:45 until 4:45 p.m. when the Moon is nicely aspecting Mars. This is an ideal time to be outside in the fresh air, allowing your mind to blow off unwanted thoughts with the wind. The Moon enters Scorpio at 7:27 p.m. and your emotions go deeper and become more intense. Be careful not to obsess too much about the past — it will take you out of the present.

Friday, February 14 — Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you. May your joy increase! If you let go of particular expectations you will enjoy this day more than you ever imagined possible. Communications are running smoothly today, especially between 2:45 and 4:45 p.m. when the Moon in Scorpio is nicely aspecting Mercury in Pisces. You do need to know that Mercury is slowing down and getting ready to turn retrograde on Sunday, remaining so until March 9. That means it is moving so slowly that its speed is calculated as if it were moving backward, although it isn’t. Its rate of speed compared with the other planets is much slower than usual. Take good care of machinery, vehicles, computers, phones etc. This would be the absolute worst time to buy a new computer. Mercury when retrograde is seeking to encourage all of us to spend time in nature and much less time dealing with the material world. From 7 until 9 p.m. your thoughts are uplifting your spirit, thanks to the Moon in Scorpio making a favorable aspect to Jupiter in Capricorn.

Saturday, February 15 — Jupiter is in a super fine aspect with Neptune until the last day of this month. It will start again (after going retrograde for a short while) July 19 and last until August 4. This aspect ushers in spiritual principles and protects and guides those who desire enlightenment and the ability to help others. Some amazing things will take place. It will inspire musicians, artists and poets who strive to have a positive impact on humanity. From 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. the Moon in Scorpio will nicely aspect Pluto in Capricorn. This would be a perfect time to be with a group of your close friends. Your feelings are upbeat; you’re feeling affectionate and generous. From 3:20 until 5:20 p.m. your concentration is good while the Moon is nicely aspecting Saturn. The Moon enters Sagittarius at 11:07 p.m. and will remain there until Tuesday morning. Enjoy the playfulness of the Sagittarius Moon.

Sunday, February 16 — Oh boy, Mercury turns retrograde tonight at 7:54 p.m. and will remain so until March 9. I have already been feeling this retrograde phase, starting on February 1. Because Mercury is turning retrograde while in the water sign of Pisces emotions are likely to block mental clarity. Mars will be entering into Capricorn at 6:33 a.m. until March 30. Mars in this earthy sign will help you to be organized and disciplined. From 4 until 6 p.m. you’ll be in the mood for romance while the Moon in Sagittarius is in a positive aspect to Venus in Aries. Between 10:10 p.m. and 12:10 a.m. the Moon will be awkwardly aspecting Mercury, causing your mind to race.

Monday, February 17 — Jupiter is still in a fine aspect with Neptune until February 29. This uplifting energy brings many blessings as well as loving-kindness. It also brings answers to prayers you’ve made. This can be a very special time for a couple who intend to renew their marriage vows. Today is a day to relax your productivity goals and simply enjoy your friends and family. Mercury has begun its retrograde phase and there’s no point in pushing yourself to do too much — it won’t work. We are nearing the New Moon cycle, so energy for accomplishing goals is lower. Just know that it’s really okay to relax. The New Moon will be on Sunday February 23.

Tuesday, February 18 — The Moon enters Capricorn at 5:37 a.m. until Thursday afternoon. You’re feeling motivated since you relaxed yesterday and let go of “striving.” From 6:15 until 8:15 a.m. the Moon will be conjunct Mars, also in Capricorn. You’re looking to get things done. Your standards are so high you might have to take things apart to get something right. Between 9:45 and 11:45 a.m. the Moon will be in a positive aspect with Uranus in Taurus. You’ve got vision. You know what you want for your future and it is motivating you to work harder. Your self-respect means quite a lot to you right now and you want others to know you are reliable. The Sun enters Pisces at 11:57 p.m., remaining in this artistic, musical, multitalented, very emotional water sign until March 19. Remember Jupiter and Neptune are offering us all blessings. It will be interesting to find out how that unfolds for you.
