Weekly Weather February 15, 2016
Last week, we had lots of Strong OR Angry OR Powerful Feminine energy as Venus in Capricorn joined with Pluto and squared Uranus under the New Moon’s energy in Aquarius. Superbowl, Chinese New Year of the Fire Monkey, Mardi Gras and Lent swirled us into a new energy. The Beyonce controversy about her Superbowl dance and new video “formation”. Lady Gaga knocking it out of the park singing the Star Spangled Banner. Gloria Steinem and Madeline Albright weighing in women’s roles and responsibilities during an election and receiving severe flashback as their comments went viral.
This week, things shift again as we move into a less combative energy when the Sun enters mellow Pisces on Friday. A CRITICAL, improvement oriented Pisces as Sun’s ruler Jupiter is in Virgo but still a mellow energy. We end a situation that needs to go away on Wednesday! Sun forms a fast Hammer of Thor with Uranus and Pluto as the business end of the hammer over the weekend to knock things out of the park or out of your life… watch for Hammers bringing change to arrive in your life!
Mercury left his shadow after the recent difficult retrograde in Capricorn and entered the sign of his exaltation, Aquarius, until March 5 ~ brilliant ideas seem to pour right out of you and everyone around you! Write ALL those ideas DOWN so you can remember them ~ there is still quite a bit of Neptune roaming about to make you promptly forget them! ~ so you can use them later when you have time to get to them! Mercury might banish a few people from your life on Friday the 19th when he has harsh aspects with the Nodes of Fate or on Wednesday when he and the Sun aspect Ademetos. He is is frigging inspired when he connects with Pallas Athena on Sunday the 21st! Do carry a pad around this week as the ideas about your future will be flying fast and furious ~ particularly around writing, connecting and siblings.
Venus is following close on Mercury’s heels and enters Aquarius on Tuesday becoming detached, crystal clear and quite chatty. She’s all about connecting with ideas after her realization of her strength and potency last weekend. Hear her roar!
Mars flirts with the Nodes of Fate and brings interesting ideas or adventures into your life on Monday. Mars enters his shadow on Wednesday prior to the upcoming Mars retrograde mid-April through end of June. Watch for what you’ll be working on when Mars dances three times through this section of the sky between now and the end of August! Plan on challenges and serious excitement. Think back to February/March 2014 and end of October/early November 2014 when Saturn in Scorpio stimulated these same sections of the sky. Yes, IT IS BACK!! But you were so much older then, you are younger than that now! And wiser too! The next chapter of the story arrives!
Jupiter continues to travel tightly through the sky linked up with the North Node of Fate bringing all sorts of new connections into your life! You are also RELEASING your old life through the South Node of Fate in Pisces. Let it go, let it go! You may find you have reunions or connections with people from your past to say goodbye and reminisce about the good old days. Collect those business cards!! Make sure you can find or connect with the person later when you want to work with them. We are starting a new 12 year cycle and a new 19 year cycle of connections so think back to 2004, 1992, 1980 and 1968 as well as spring 1997 and 1978! Similar stories are bouncing around your life now!
Neptune asks you to start a creative project that nurtures your dreams on Sunday…it is time to get that new dream under way!
If overwhelmed this week by the cascading and shifting energy, take comfort and spend time in Pisces activities that sooth and transport you to a clean and clear emotional space.
Void Moons in the Week Ahead: When the Moon is Void, it is wise to avoid making important decisions as they tend to be unrealistic, and subject to false starts, errors or unexpected hassles. Avoid being concerned with things beyond your spiritual center. It is time for subjective, spiritual and non-materialistic concerns. Kick back, let life flow, and center yourself. Connect into your essential oneness with the Universal Forces.
Moon is in Taurus early Monday morning.

Moon’s day Monday February 15, 2016 Happy President’s day! Moon is in Taurus and goes void Trine to Venus at 05:54:59 am EST. Moon Enters Gemini at 09:35:40 am EST and goes void trine to Sun. Today and Tuesday are very communicative and connective. Make those calls and get things moving in a new direction. Moon has lovely aspects of outgoing, forthcoming and expansive chatty energy. Venus has a trine to Admetos so you realize it wasn’t such a great idea and probably cost you more than it should have. No worries ~ learning that lesson now will pay off clearly, cleanly and concisely in the future. Pallas has a health aspect with Kronos ~ you understand the old way is NOT the new way. You HAVE to change! Adjust! Mars makes interesting connections to the Nodes of Fate ~ who ever or what ever shows up today (or leaves) it is time to take action on that matter and not do the same old stuff any more. Could be a person, place or thing that arrives or leaves (or both)! Move forward to get it done and wrapped up! Mars is entering his shadow in a couple of days so things need to be finalized sooner rather than later or you’ll be doing it until the end of August!
Mars’ day Tuesday February 16, 2016 Moon is Gemini and goes void trine to Sun making today another productive and chatty day. On waking make sure to record your dreams or what ever inspired idea you hear from Saturn ~ an older wiser person or your inner wisdom. Mid-day, there is an opportunity for a good old fashioned fight with your sibling, cousin, side by side companion or someone who is jealous or envious of you when Mars and Eris, the siblings of war, get into a struggle. Attempt to take a big picture approach. This is who they are! You are who you are! You can’t change it any more than you can make the Sun shine. The maternal energy enters to calm the jealousy or envy which probably will make it worse. It IS an old story. And a story you will be hanging out with until the end of June/early July when it abates or shifts. And a story you’ll be working with until the end of August. Part of it may be in your blind spot or you may see something or have an “ahha” moment about it. In this current moment, it is an earnest and clear energy even if you didn’t see it coming. Your journey in hell is coming to an end quite soon! Venus enters Aquarius until March 12 taking a detached approach to the situation. Venus is clear headed and able to point out that you are ALMOST finished with it once and for all and for ever! Home and house energy needs you to change things up! Throw out the stuff or organize things so you can find them. You don’t have time to keep searching for stuff ~ you should be able to put your hands on it when you need it! Clear it OUT of your life if you don’t need it! Once the t-square tightens up in the next month and goes crazy through the end of July, you are going to be SOOOO busy! Do the organizing now! Get your structures in place to support the wild and crazy months ahead! Thea where are you when I need you???
Mercury’s Day Wednesday February 17, 2016 Moon is in Gemini and goes void trine to Sun at 11:37:45 am EST. Moon is void three hours mid-day. Moon Enters Cancer at 02:24:48 pm EST and goes void Trine to Mars. You can wrap up all sorts of stuff this morning until the Moon goes void as it is a great communication and connection energy. In the afternoon, after the Moon enters Cancer we get more focused on self care and what we need to do to take care of ourselves. Dreams last night were full of messages even if you got bad news this morning about a health matter. You have to make choices ~ different choices too! Vesta aligns with Pallas encouraging you to take a new approach to matters that structurally support you. Gotta get the support in place to continue at this pace! Or faster! Besides it is GOOD for you to take care of yourself. If you don’t do it, who will? There is an inspired idea that will help you figure things out a new approach to things. Tonight you say good bye to something forever. It is time for it to go!
