The Moon is in efficient Virgo until Tuesday afternoon. This helps you work on all those things on your “to do” list as well as getting your IRS Tax information organized. You can accomplish a great deal of practical tasks early in the week, and then the tone becomes more social. Because Mercury is now slowing down to turn retrograde on the 16th, the mid-week is a good time to catch up on all your calls, texts, and emails.
Capricorn continues to have a strong influence on the world with South Node, Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn all in Capricorn. The Saturn/Pluto conjunction is separating but still is active with the powers of business and government bodies expanding (Jupiter) and transforming (Pluto) as they try to work through their own countries karma (Saturn).
Those born under the sign of Capricorn must watch out for health issues related to overworking. They are workaholics with this combination. The balance between work and family can be stressed if they don’t go home and balance family life with work life.
Beginning late afternoon on Thursday the 13th, the moon moves into emotionally intense Scorpio through Saturday morning, including Valentine’s Day. Be prepared for conversations that can take you to deep and potentially vulnerable levels. Not to worry as there are happy lunar aspects all day on the 14th to go along with Scorpio’s desire to keep it very real. Scorpio has a well-developed B.S. detector –and knows when you’re dishing out malarkey, so tell the truth even if it is something others don’t want to hear. (but always be kind).
Saturday is a better day for loud parties and outdoor activities when the Moon moves into adventurous Sagittarius.
Mars moves into Capricorn on Sunday, February 16th adding more intense energy to a sign that needs some peace of mind at this point. The Capricorn goat wants to reach the top of the mountain and has all the energy and power to do this over the next 6 weeks.
Mercury retrogrades in Pisces on the 16th. After his challenging retrograde in Scorpio in November of 2019, we may feel some anxiety over his backpedaling in another Water sign. During the next three weeks, it’s important to take an intuitive approach to matters. Logic may fail and reason may hide unreasonable assumptions, but our internal compasses will be more on target. Of course, intuition can fail as well as reason, so the advice for this time -- is to go slowly. Get lost in the caverns of your inner vision, and take some time off from pressing forward.
