This week is very busy. Here is an overview of each day—all signs and transits in sidereal:
Monday, February 27
Mixed bag with Moon entering Pisces, Mars and Jupiter perfecting their opposition
Tuesday, February 28
Venus and Jupiter take over as Moon in Pisces conjuncts Venus then begins applying an opposition to Jupiter
Wednesday, March 1
FIERY! Moon sets off Mars/Jupiter and both Moon and Mars enter Aries
Thursday, March 2
Probably the quietest day of the week, Moon still skating through Aries though
Friday, March 3
Moon skates out of Aries and settles into Taurus, passing the baton to a demanding Venus
Saturday, March 4
Moon in Taurus sauntering to square planets in Aquarius, especially Mercury
Sunday, March 5
Venus stops to demand our attention. Moon is busy, too!
Now for the nitty gritty details!
The week starts off with the Moon in Aquarius on Monday. She’s not making any aspects before she leaves for Pisces around 1pm CST. Don’t let that fool you though. Mars and Jupiter perfect their opposition today.
Tuesday and Wednesday are busy busy. Mars is teetering on the last degree of Pisces daring us before he kicks off a 6 week stay in his domicile of Aries. Mars has been ahead of all the planets giving us a taste of what is to come for a while now.
On December 16, 2016, Mars triggered the August 21, 2017 Eclipse degree (4 Leo) by opposition. On that day, President Obama announced that the Russian government had indeed initiated the hacking of DNC emails. He vows to retaliate.
Mars activated the February 26, 2017 solar eclipse degree on December 29, 2016 (13 Aquarius). That day, then President Obama announced sanctions against Russia for meddling in the 2016 elections. At the same time, Michael Flynn was having conversations with Russia assuring them that they didn’t have to worry about those pesky sanctions.
Just as the Sun entered Aquarius on February 13, 2017, setting the stage for the next New Moon Eclipse, flynn resigned as National Security Advisor amid news that he may have promised Russia that the Trump administration would relax sanctions once they took office.
All of that to say that the story of the August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse at 4 Leo will be Russia. Trump will get hit pretty hard. Stay tuned.
Back to this week!
Moon is in Pisces on Tuesday applying to a conjunction to Venus most of the day. Later in the afternoon she’ll pass up Venus and begin applying an opposition to Jupiter. Moon opposes Jupiter earlier in the day on Wednesday and then it’s game time! Moon reactivates the waning opposition between Mars and Jupiter making Tuesday into Wednesday a big news day.
Tuesday will feel powerful yet indulgent with Venus and Jupiter getting all of the Moon’s attention. With Mars out of the way, the Moon has a chance to facilitate a conversation between Venus and Jupiter. This conversation speaks of possibilities that won’t quite manifest right now but will come up again later, May 19 to be exact. That date is important and will come up again, so write it down.
Venus is moving extremely slow. She’s settling into her retrograde station which means she’s powerful and demanding our attention. Watch for women in the news on Tuesday. Also, women may feel particularly intense and passionate. If you’re on Twitter we’ve seen women dominate conversations. Even this weekend a normally male dominated practice was taken over by women when Remy Ma released a diss track about Nicki Minaj.
Expect more of this kind of energy this week and over the next month.
Both the Moon and Mars enter Aries Wednesday evening. But first, the Moon conjuncts Mars at 29 degrees of Pisces before jumping over enter Aries just a few minutes before he does. Then they sit together in partile conjunction at 0 Aries. This shifts the conversation for a minute for women focused to men focused. Assertiveness and aggressiveness dominate until the Moon enters Taurus on Friday.
Wednesday can go a few different ways. Moon and Mars at 0 Aries introduces us to the energy that will lead us forward. Mars has been clearing the pathway all year as he’s been ahead of the Sun, Mercury, and Venus. He’s been the first to enter every sign.
Now, here we are. Mars is crossing into Aries which undoubtedly gives us a the first pieces of our Aries Ingress story both collectively and personally. This is a day you want to set intentions for because it may be wild and electric once the day actually arrives, it may get away from you once it sets in. So, spend the ease of Tuesday evening preparing for Wednesday.
If you’ve read my Aries Ingress predictions you’ll know what this setup is for.
You’ll want to mark this day for yourself. Even if nothing happens, pay attention to how you feel, what’s on your mind, and what area of your life your attention is directed towards.
Wednesday evening, Moon trines Saturn. That provides an opportunity for whatever had us raging earlier in the day to come down to earth and ground a bit. This could solidify a conflict or separation, giving you the courage to move forward boldly.
Thursday is relatively quiet. While the Moon is still in Aries, it’s skating towards its last aspect while in the sign, a sextile with the Sun. This is a waxing Moon so energy is building towards the First Quarter Moon which is the bend in road towards the upcoming Full Moon.
Moon sextile Sun late and overnight on Thursday keeps the Aries Moon energy moving full throttle with nothing in its way. That’s his last aspect before leaving for Taurus on Friday evening.
Friday is still fast paced for most of the day, but Moon skates uninhibited through the rest of Aries. The weekend energy comes at us slow and easy with a sensual Taurus Moon. Soon as the Moon enters Taurus Venus takes center stage for many reasons.
Moon in Taurus applies to a square with Mercury in Aquarius all day on Saturday, trying to put into words what we feel.
Sunday is busy once again. Moon sextiles Venus with reception. But Venus stations retrograde that day making her the dominating influence for the day. Relationship issues may surface as we once again visit the themes we’ll be dealing with for the next few weeks as Venus retraces the path she’s travelled since late January.
This is a long trip ya’ll so I will write more on Venus rx later.
