The Astrology of the upcoming week: Full Moon, and the Sun moves into Pisces. Lots going on February 18-24. And...Uranus gets closer to moving into Aries!
Friday, February 18 the Full Moon takes place at 3:36 a.m. with the Moon in Leo and the Sun (& Neptune) in Aquarius opposite the Moon. Watch out for your expectations they may set you up for a great fall into the land of disappointment. Think big- Aquarian style, don’t get caught up in personal wants, think about the world and how you can contribute in some way that feels comfortable to you. Those with alcohol and drug problems will be in tough shape today, so you might want to check on him or her. The Sun enters Pisces at 7:24 p.m. and stays in this psychically sensitive water sign until March 20. Time to dream and hibernate within. Spend more time alone in the quiet stillness. Give loving attention to you Soul. Too much time is spent doing in the external realm. Time to go within, you’ll reap the rewards.
Saturday, February 19 the Sun is in an awkward aspect with Saturn indicating frustration with occurrences not working out the way you planned. Try to be patient. It will be challenging. This aspect is with us until tomorrow night. From 6:30-8:30 a.m. the Moon will be nicely aspecting Venus which is always good for going out to eat with a friend. Mercury, Mars and Neptune are all close together in Aquarius which is ideal for formulating a democratic government. We’ll see what happens today in Egypt. This aspect in Aquarius is future oriented and loaded with idealism.
Sunday, February 20 the Sun is still aspecting Saturn (until tonight) finding us slowing down and getting more organized due to frustrating circumstances. Mercury, Mars and Neptune are still conjunct in Aquarius, until Monday night. This is excellent for a meeting to take place based on helping others or the environment. It would be a very vocal meeting with lively discussions and completely immersed in the good of the whole. Jupiter is aspecting Pluto which has to do with the law, and creating something that is unique and humanitarian. Fanatical individuals are may try to usurp the power.
Monday, February 21 from 4:30-6:30 a.m. the Moon will be in an awkward aspect with Saturn You might wake up feeling worried. It will pass. Mercury, Mars and Neptune are conjunct for the last time today until later on tonight. Hopefully the people are voicing their opinion about Obama suggesting that the funding for heating assistance be cut. This aspect is outspoken and focused on the good of the whole. Jupiter is still aspecting Pluto, until March 2. The laws need to be changed and the people have the power, but only if we speak out. Between 12-2 p.m. the Moon will aspect Neptune favorably increasing sensitivity to the needs of others. Your psychic ability is much stronger now.
Tuesday, February 22 Mercury is in a difficult aspect with Saturn until tonight indicating worry and doubt. Research is required to get you out of the pit of negative thinking right now. 8:30-10:30 a.m. the Moon in Scorpio will nicely aspect the Sun in Pisces. You’re feeling relaxed and confident. From 2-4 p.m. the Moon will be aspecting Pluto offering you insights and clarity emotionally. At 8:04 p.m. Mars will shift and move into Pisces and remain in this psychic, compassionate water sign until April. Pisces people will feel their energy increasing. Mars is about energy, assertion, aggression, desire, and sexuality. Pisces people will be dealing with these energies until April first. No fooling. Pisces are know for giving of themselves unselfishly.

Jupiter is still aspecting Pluto until April first which will be in the news regarding laws that have to do with leadership and bringing about reform. It can signal brilliant organizational talents. Let’s hope that in Egypt they have found what they need to move forward in a manner that is an example for all the world to see how a new democratic republic can manifest.
Thursday, February 24 Mars will be harshly aspecting Saturn today until tonight registering delays and obstacles to you plans. Being forewarned may help you to relax a bit. The Sun and Mercury are both in a fine aspect to Jupiter and Pluto. Today things change legally somehow someway. That’s what it looks like to me. It’s very positive. I'm very excited about Uranus leaving Pisces, it's been there since March 2003. Now with Jupiter in Aries, as of January 22, 2011- leading the way- I see freedom as the theme and breakthroughs in people's thinking about what is possible. Hope is restored and we say together,- "we can do it!" United we stand! The corporations can't control us, we can stand strong and not budge just as they did in Egypt & Wisconsin! Heating assistance funding being cut? I say, "No way!" Not reasonable to ask elders and disabled people to freeze in order to, "share the sacrifice," according to Obama. What nonesense, we can speak up and tell him, and the Congress-people this is not acceptable to cut this fund, period. My brother said to me that his take on the whole thing is that Obama is being overly dramatic by saying we ought to cut funding for heating assistance in order for people to wake up and realize this is a serious time. I say, HUH? Didnt we already know that when Bush screwed it all up and then Obama stepped into this mess? My feeling is to even suggest cutting funding for heating asistance is a sin.
That's where Uranus in Aries is at, You'll see, Uranus will move into Aries March 11. Uranus is a planet with an eccentric way of orbit, different from all the other planets, it's unique!~ That's what Uranus has to teach us. To find our uniqueness, express ourselves freely (respectuflly of course) but be ourselves, no holding back. Uranus teaches us to trust our intuition, which can be a lengthly process of discerning the difference between instinct, impulse and intuition. Uranus breaks up old structures that no longer serve, that have become stagnant. Uranus likes us to take chances based on intuition, if it has to do with the betterment of the whole(holy). it's concern is mainly with raising consciousness, giving us new tests to deal with. I say the old ones are worn out, let's try some new challenges. war, poverty, greed, control,manipulation -old games, been around so long ...I want something new and different. Uranus just may do that, that is to respond to my call for something new to learn from. I expect the unexpected from Uranus.
