Weekly Astro Forecast February 28th ~ March 6th 2021

Hello there, and welcome to a new week! I hope you enjoyed the energies of the Full Moon in Virgo (February 27th), and will continue to entertain the vibes for another week or so. Full Moons are PEAK when occurring, but the energy lingers, just like most other Astrological happenings. 🙂

The moon will phase into the Last Quarter Moon this Friday, March 5th at 8:30 PM EST. This is not a time to start up major projects, but a time to let go, release and forgive. The moon is decreasing in size, and likewise, you have to be ready to let go. It is also a good time to reflect and absorb advice, consider the revelations, what they mean to us, and what we can do next.

Mars has also been in Taurus since January 6th, and will transition into Gemini on March 3rd. Now, Mars rules our desires, actions, energy aggression, passions, and assertions. With this planet being in Taurus, we have been rather stubborn and resolute during this cycle. With the glide towards Gemini, we’ll be considerably more versatile, broadening our interests possibly to the point of scattered behavior and in the end become rather ineffective. If you’re feeling the energies already, take some time to reflect with this waning moon in effect and lay out what goals and interests you *really* want to take on, as to not get overwhelmed and give up on most of them.

I hope we all have a great week ahead, blessings!

Full Moon in Virgo ~ February 27th, 2021

Welcome in the second Full Moon of the year, this one is known to us as the “Snow Moon”, and this Full Moon will occur February 27th, 2021 at 3:17 AM EST. Full Moons are a time of culmination and promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon, and is a time of fertilization, romance, and relationships. With the Virgo-Pisces axis involved (with the Sun being in Pisces), this Full Moon guides us to find a balance with day-to-day functions, the need for order, spiritual health, and the infinite.

This Full Moon urges us to find balance with work and service, widening our eyes for our habits, health and routines. Some sort of crisis pro sudden awareness of a “lack” in our lives could lead us to explore our emotional needs within the house where the Full Moon occurs in our natal charts. The energies are getting ready to re-align themselves fully, and in a mostly positive and empowering way.

The Full Moon is also a time to reflect on what projects you started with the New Moon. Whatever you’ve been working towards is ready for the spotlight of awareness, and good stones to work with are moonstone, selenite, and quartz. Making Full Moon water is also advised, and with Virgo being the sign, you can use this for work related to cleanliness, health, routines, and organization. When making Full Moon water, be sure to use clean water (and a lid!) if you are planning to consume it!

Along with this Full Moon, we are nearing the end of the Post Retrograde shadow left by Mercury, and also will be having a 9 WEEK (yes, WEEKS!) period where there will be ZERO planets in retrograde! This is an amazing time to really grind, get everything you want to get done, done, and to step forward with ideas that have accumulated over the past several weeks! When we have all planets flowing direct, there’s really no obstacles in your way to success in your personal, public, and work life!

Weekly Astro February 21st ~ February 27th 2021

New week, new beginnings!

This Saturday we will have our Full Moon in Virgo (exact time being Saturday, February 27th, 2021 at 3:17 AM EST). The Full Moon is the middle of the moon cycle, bringing fulfillment and speed to what you started at the New Moon. This Moon also forms an opposition to the Sun in Pisces (an opposition is when two signs/planets are complete opposites of each other on the wheel), meaning we will feel pressed to find a balance with Virgo aspects such as routines, order, and physical health VS the Pisces aspects with spiritual health, vision and the infinite. Pisces rules the tools we use to handle our spiritual self while Virgo rules the day-to-day. This will be a good time to look at how we are balancing our spiritual and physical lives, without feeling too overwhelmed by the opposing energies.

Another change we have this week is Venus moving from Aquarius to Pisces, happening on February 25th. With Venus being in Aquarius, we have been experiencing a freedom of expression with our relationships and balancing out independence. Aquarius themes have been allowing one another freedom, treating others impartially and unselfishly, and with moving into Pisces, our love is forgiving and compassionate. Venus, being the Goddess of Love, in Pisces, shows us deep understanding and all-embracing affection. Remember, this doesn’t just apply to our ROMANTIC relationships, but ALL of our relationships (hopefully you truly love your friends!)

Also, as you may have noticed, Mercury is stationed direct once again! Mercury went direct on February 20th, but you may still feel the sludgy energy for a couple of weeks, known as the Post-Retrograde shadow. It’s a good time to look at what you had going on prior to the retrograde, or ideas you have drawn up during retrograde, and start putting motions back into action. One step at a time of course, but you’ll be able to feel the energies and know when you can start back up once again.

Hopefully we are all taking this time to prepare for Spring, prepare for the energies and warmth to come! If you are interested in having your own astrology readings, please contact me. I am taking on new clients on a continual basis 🙂

Blessings,

Sun Has Entered Pisces!

The Sun has officially entered the sign of Pisces, starting today (February 18th, 2021) and lasting until March 20th, 2021. Pisces is known for empathy, devotion, and selfless love, and the shadow side rules passivity, elusiveness, and a little bit of self-pity. While still sitting in Mercury Retrograde (for only a couple more days, but the shadow period will linger!) we may feel a pull towards forgiveness and compassion with the help of Pisces. No matter your sun sign, you will feel the effects of Pisces, which is all about wearing those rose-colored glasses and getting in touch with your intuition.

This can also be a great time to explore what exists beyond our five senses. Pisces, being the twelfth and final sign of the zodiac, gives us a touch of every sign and can feel pretty magical to say the least. Opening your third-eye chakra can be beneficial during this time, and you can do this through working with an energy healer or through your own meditation. Sparking this can enhance creativity and help clarify your purpose!

Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of February 14th thru February 20th, 2021

On Friday, February 19th, we will have the First Quarter Moon in Gemini form a square with the Sun moving into Pisces. There will be an urgent awareness to take action, maybe a time of stress and discord, but also high energy, growth, and motivation.

Our Sun, which has been in Aquarius from January 19th to February 18th will be transiting into Pisces, which will last from February 18th to March 20th. This time of year can be quite a spiritual moment, with Pisces being the 12th and final sign. We might be less motivated as we had felt during the time of Sun being in Aquarius, but the sign Pisces rules wisdom, devotion, empathy and love. However, you should be aware of tendencies to believe too quickly, too deeply, or becoming too dependent on things that people seem to offer as quick and easy answers to life’s deepest yearnings.

Also ending this week will be Mercury Retrograde, which ran its course starting January 30th and ending February 20th. Don’t get too excited: There is a shadow period that occurs right before, and right AFTER the retrograde that can be felt as almost just intense as the retrograde itself. Those of us who are more in tune with the heavens tend to notice these trends of shadow periods, but it can still be a good place to start slowly going forward with what ideas and goals we have set for ourselves.

I hope everyone had a good week, and blessings for the week ahead!

Mercury Retrograde – January 30 ~ February 20

It’s that time again, Mercury Retrograde!

Most of us have heard of Mercury Retrograde and how it seems to mess with every area of our lives, how everything seems to “go wrong” and can’t wait for it to end. Mercury’s keywords are “communication, reason, mind”… and during a retrograde period, it can seem as if these aspects go awry or at least are temporarily slowed down. Phones and tablets don’t connect to wifi when we need it, miscommunications through texts occur more often, or even discussions between friends and family members may seem to be more tense.

You might have also heard of how we shouldn’t sign contracts, go on long travels, or attempt to start new adventures. While this may be true, there are also some upsides to Mercury Retrograde that can bring benefits to an otherwise aggravating period of time.


During these periods, you might have a desire to go within, to try and clearly this about what it is you need to do in certain areas of your life or how to handle past issues (although, I wouldn’t recommend acting on immediate impulse ideas. Give yourself time to really think things through, but you could end up with progress!)

Keep in mind that you can have things unexpectedly occur, or plans fall apart at a moments notice. Try to keep yourself flexible, aware and give yourself a break if things aren’t quite going as planned. Check, and double check, everything before you go (wherever that may be), and be prepared for what may or may not happen.

I’m sending everyone good energy and good vibes that all goes well, and if things don’t go well, that the solution is an easy one!
