Mercury turned retrograde on February 6. He remains in backwards motion all month and turns direct on February 28, but then Mars goes retrograde on March 1 and Saturn goes retrograde on March 2. Mercury turns retrograde at 3 degrees of Pisces and backs up to 18 degrees of Aquarius. Because he moves through two signs, he gives you a double dose of matters to review. The area in your chart that holds those degrees shows you where to expect reversals and what you need to work on.
This week slows down as Mercury ends his retrograde period and Mars and Saturn prepare for theirs. Stay calm and carry on.
Monday, February 24 – Moon VC Sagittarius, enters Capricorn 8:50 am. This is the last work week with Mercury in retrograde motion until he turns retrograde in June. You don’t want to take much action but it is a good day to make plans. Set your goals for the week, the next three months, and for the next year. Be sure to write it all down. Examine what you hold to be of value and see what has changed since the first of the year.
Tuesday, February 25 – Moon in Capricorn. Continue on finishing up what you worked on this month and on planning for the next few months. It’s easy to be practical and pragmatic and to see your situation without any illusions. Look at where you need to downsize to make for greater efficiency while you stay focused on work and career. Don’t be frustrated as you notice and correct mistakes.
Wednesday, February 26 – Moon VC Capricorn, enters Aquarius 9:55 am. You can keep going in a straight line today and tomorrow before the energy gets disturbed. Decide what you need to say and say it. There are things in your life that you realize you need to change and can do so today. Let your intellectual curiosity lead you into discovering new information.
Thursday, February 27 – Moon in Aquarius. Your mind is strong and steady today and you can use the creative power of thought to help people. Look on the Internet for ways to help increase your concentration. Try some ESP experiments by yourself and with a group. Imagine a new scenario for your life, one that seems way over the edge. Watch the classic sci-fi movies to see how people thought the future would turn out.
Friday, February 28 – Moon VC Aquarius, enters Pisces 9:33 am. Mercury turns direct at 9 am. The Sun and Jupiter offer you gifts of optimism and opportunity to reward you for whatever struggles you went through this month. Make a wish and then make it happen. Tonight is the dark of the moon in the most mystical sign. Meditate and chant.
Saturday, March 1 – Moon in Pisces. Mars turns retrograde at 11:24 am. Slow down on this day of transition as you adjust to the new energy of Mercury in direct motion and Mars retrograde. Today’s new moon is a mystical one. Let yourself drift on the waters of higher consciousness. Meditate with the image of the ocean in mind and how it connects all on the planet. Listen to spiritual music and chant the names of the Lord.
Sunday, March 2 – Moon VC Pisces, enters Aries 10:40 am. Saturn turns retrograde at 11:19 am. This puts another big wave in your way and makes it harder to stay centered and on track. If you feel irritated, get off by yourself for a while to avoid angry confrontations. Exercise in the afternoon to work off pent up energy.
