Mercury in Pisces semisquares Pluto in Capricorn.
Mars enters Taurus.
Happy Valentine’s day! The first aspect of the day is when Mercury in Pisces semisquares Pluto in Capricorn. Now this has the potential to create friction between our mind, communication and thought process with the emotional need to heal, change and transform. Today makes for some intense and dramatic ideas and communication, power dynamic and control issues and self realizations. It’s a great day for self therapy and healing work, day dreaming and soul-searching. It’s also a day were we get much-needed “Aha moments” during our mental and verbal confusion.
Mars, the planet of direct action, motivation, self-determination and willpower has been in its ruling sign of impulsive hot-headed Aries since the start of 2019. Today as it moves in sensual and grounded Taurus the energy is more patient and slow-paced. Mars in Aries was headstrong, it rushed and wanted things done now! However when Mars in Taurus we are able to think before we act and take a more cautious approach to the way we tackle things. Mars in Taurus gives us perseverance, strength, and the ability to build a strong foundation in any plans you make.
Now is a time to slow down and enjoy life, connect with nature and enjoy the beautiful and small pleasures of life. However, the shadow side of Mars in Taurus is we may get stuck in a rut of laziness and loose all motivation, don’t let this slow-paced energy weigh you down to much that you forget your dreams all together. Find a relaxed and flexible approach to balancing out your life.
Look to the house that holds Taurus in your chart for greater understanding in how you approach your desired goals and dreams. Stop and smell the roses during Mars transition, get out in nature and enjoy the simple pleasure of life.
Happy Valentines Day!

The First Quarter Moon is in Taurus.
The day continues with the steadfast Taurus Moon now in its first quarter phase. The Taurus Moon allows us a slow sensual awareness to the day full of all life pleasure.
In astrology they say that the first quarter Moon phase energy is surrounded by a “Crises” theme.Keep in mind that crisis implies not only difficulties or obstacles but opportunities for us as well. It’s a time to take it easy and reflect instead of rushing into ideas or plans without thinking it through. If we can take a more relaxed approach to life know your plans will develop easily. Don’t bite off more than you can chew it’s about creating a balance between taking action and overdoing it.
We are heading towards a Mars and Uranus conjunct early tomorrow, the fierce energy is starting to build throughout today. Mars in Aires will conjunct Uranus the planet of rebellion chaos and the unknown. Mars loves being in its home sign of Aires, it’s all about our desire to succeed, change as well as our drive and our wants. Its energy is also associated with our desire to protect and in some cases destroy. Being independent, knocking down obstacles and overcoming any resistance is the main theme for Mars in Aires. Uranus and Mars energy combined means electricity, will power and a strong force to achieve the un- achievable. Nothing or know one is going to stand in your way of your inner desires. Mars conjunct Uranus represents the beginning of a cycle of demanding change and for us to break free from some situation in our life that is restricting you from future growth and abundance.
Have a great day!

New Moon in Aquarius.
By Monday afternoon, we will have a New Moon in Aquarius. This marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle. New Moo;s traditionally are about a fresh new start. A time to sit down and write down goals or changes you wish to manifest over the next month. It’s a time to plant seeds of intention to grow. This New Moon will be pulling in lots of Aquarius energy as the Sun and Moon conjunct each other they are both at 15 degrees of each other, to us down on earth the Moon is pitch black and recharging itself for the lunar cycle ahead. Aquarius is an Air sign, it’s the sign of the humanitarian, its social and independent. It’s focus is about the bigger picture and connecting with others. Aquarius energy is about focusing on others to make changes for the greater good. Creativity and innovation are some key words when we think about Aquarius.
The New Moon is at fifteen degrees. Fifteen degrees in numerology breaks down to six, six is a door way or a temporary opportunity that opens up for us so what better time to plan for the future and make changes. Aquarius rules information, technology, communication, ideas, practicality and inventing. It’s about taking our ideas and making them reality. This New Moon open up your mind, think collectively and brain storm ideas how you can make positive change to those around you.
Aquarius is at once fiercely independent and yet extremely socially minded. Being emotionally independent is important for this sign as well as feeling somewhat connected to others, being progressive and objective. If you can detach yourself from the “Norm” this New Moon you will be able to discover and understand the world around you and the changes that you need to make. Your natural abilities to be more social will be important to you this month, exchanging ideas, discussions and communication with others will also be highlighted. Use these great qualities of Aquarius in your New Moon intentions and you will have full support of the universe. Maybe you need the cosmic push to join an exercise group? Volunteer? Start an environmental project, make a plan to recycle or reduce your waste consumption. Perhaps take a class on learning how to use your computer or anything related to technology. Or simply Join a social group that sparks your interest!
The New Moon in Aquarius will also give you insight on those around you that are not as easily understood, it will also allow you to not only engage with others who are different from you, but give you a unique way for you to be able to express the parts of yourself that are most unusual and quirky. Allow the more rebellious and innovative parts of yourself to emerge its OK to let go of your old habits and patterns of thinking. This New Moon free yourself from those parts that hold you back and make some positive changes in your life. The Aquarius New Moon forms a harmonious sextile aspect to expansive and abundant happy Jupiter. This is great news for us as whatever we set our intentions or wishes to will turn to gold.
Happy New Moon wishing.
