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 🙂
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!

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!
