Stargazing — Week of Feb. 22nd through Feb. 28th, 2016

Feb 20, 2016 | Monthly Astrology|Stargazing


Full MoonThe week opens with a Full Moon in Virgo on Monday. This is the last Full Moon before the March 8th eclipse, and it brings the opportunity to make some solid plans and get organized. This moon asks you to balance the analytical energy of Virgo with the intuitive feelings of Pisces. It is like the lawyer and the psychic trying to find a place where they can work together. Since Virgo’s tendency is to worry and Pisces loves flights of fancy; it’s up to you to make both energies work without getting obsessive/compulsive or lost in space. Remember, Virgo energies are excellent for hard work as well as doing a health cleanse.

Pisces Fish-colorThe Sun has now moved into Pisces which is great for stepping back from the busy world to open to the higher vision of what you are doing here on planet earth,-rather than just getting caught up in some chores pr same ‘ole, same ‘ole routines.

Pluto and Uranus are finishing their long, intricate dance that has been going on since the summer of 2012. The behavior of Congress and the upcoming battle over the next Supreme Court justice is an example of these sudden, confused and misdirected energies.

Begin to create a way to have greater freedom and adventure in your life, while still maintaining stability. This requires a new way of thinking and the release of outdated beliefs and behaviors. View this renewing time as an opportunity to realign your life.

Also at this full moon, Mars in Scorpio has entered the shadow of the coming Mars retrograde cycle in Scorpio and Sagittarius between April 17-June 29. Begin to look at where you need to make changes in life priorities, then do it. Consider where your actions need to come into alignment with these changes, and what needs to be released in order to get there.

Saturday, the 27th, continues to be a pleasant day; however, the moon has moved into Scorpio. This brings greater emotional depths and the need for privacy and perhaps the inner work of meditation. Projects that require research, deep thinking, or intense focus are favored this weekend.

Neptune-EarthPay attention to your dreams Sunday morning. Also on Sunday, February 28th, the Sun has its annual meet-up with Neptune in Pisces. At the highest level this combination certainly supports people who are spiritual healers or in the arts. Be willing to receive now, as the energies are here to help. At the lowest level, a Sun/Neptune conjunction can make it easier to overlook the obvious, especially if it’s sad or makes you scared and uncomfortable.

MarchOn a final note, as mentioned earlier, the battle between Uranus and Pluto that has been going on since 2012 is in its final dance over the next month. You have been finding a way to have stability, harmony, and freedom in your life, rather than having to choose one or the other. One part of you wants to run off into the woods yelling and screaming, and the other wants to bring something meaningful into the mainstream world. As the winds of March open, try to find the balance between the revolutionary part of you and the stability within you.
