So, there are only a couple astrological aspects this week and a single sign change, but that doesn’t make the week any less potent. In fact, this is one of the most power-packed weeks of the year as Mars, the warrior god, takes center stage.
Mars is about getting what you want and desire. He is the fighter planet for the Sun, so when he is the major planetary energy of the week, our ability to push our will onto the outer world becomes increasingly important. Now, whether the outer world is going to work with us is another story.
The most important aspect of the week is Mars conjunct Uranus, which happens on Wednesday. Classically, Mars conjoined Uranus tends to erupt on the world stage, so be prepared for some shocking unexpected event that may occur this week. On the personal level, events that leave us feeling frustrated may cause explosions of their own, so it’s important to try to maintain your composure throughout the week.
Mars conjunct Uranus remains active for the entire week.
Now, on with the forecast…
Monday, February 11, 2019
We start Monday off with the Moon moving through earthy Taurus. Taurus loves luxury and anything elegant or scrumptious. Monday is great for a cheat day and since the only aspect that the Moon makes is a sextile to Venus, going out to dinner with friends or your significant other may be the cherry on top of your cosmic ice cream sundae.

The Moon continues its trek through Taurus and forms several beneficial aspects to Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto. It’s a good day to focus on financial and business concerns. Anything you focus on should prove successful, so put your best foot forward.
Wednesday, February 13, 2019
Mars conjoins Uranus during the early morning hours and your impatience will be apparent throughout the day. If you feel aggravated by others, then it’s best to take a deep breath and walk away before you do something you may regret later.
One way to work through this aspect and its abundance of energy is to do something that expresses your individuality. You need something that has a personal stamp on it for you to feel happy and satisfied with your life.
An important note: Avoid doing anything risky because Mars conjunct Uranus is rather accident prone.

Happy Valentine’s Day! Mars moves out of his own sign and into earthy Taurus. Although Mars settles down in Taurus, this energy gives Mars a very determined edge that lets you overcome just about anything. Mars in Taurus is great for business because it gets things done, which is great if you have projects that need effort and elbow grease to get them completed. The only thing you must do is learn to give up if something seems pointless.

The Moon moves into emotional Cancer during the early morning hours and your moods may fluctuate throughout the day. The Moon forms an opportunistic sextile to Mars, which will give you a boost of energy when needed. Since the Moon is in Cancer, it’s a great day to reach out to family members, especially those you haven’t been in touch with for a while.
On Saturday, the Moon continues to move through Cancer, but it forms aspects that are challenging – oppositions to Venus, Saturn, and Pluto. Your emotions may be on edge, so it may be a great day to stay in and relax. Otherwise, conflicts with others may spoil your day.
Venus and Neptune form a sextile on Sunday. This is a great day to focus on relationships because you are sensitive to your partner’s needs. If you missed Valentine’s Day, today would be a great time to celebrate with that special person you love. If you are single, use this energy for artistic or creative endeavors.
See you next week…
