Astrology Forecast for the Week of February 14, 2022 – February 20, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of February 14, 2022 through February 20, 2022 features two major aspects (Venus conjunct Mars and Jupiter sextile Uranus), two sign changes, and the Full Moon in Leo.

It’s going to be a busy week. So, let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

The aspect of the week is Mars conjoined to Venus in Capricorn. This configuration is special because Mars will overtake Venus, when usually Venus is the one that completes an aspect to Mars.

But, why?

Back in November, Venus moved into Capricorn and began applying to a sextile with Mars in Scorpio. However, Venus slowed down before turning retrograde, and Mars slipped into Sagittarius. In astrological terms, this is called frustration, and it means that matters governed by Venus and Mars could not come together or materialize. Venus turned retrograde in December, and Mars continued to move through Sagittarius until it moved into Capricorn on January 24th. Venus then turned direct on January 29th, but because she is still moving slower than Mars, Mars can overtake Venus and finally come together.

Mars conjoin Venus is great for relationships that have been problematic for the last few months. Tensions should begin to subside, and since the conjunction occurs in earthy Capricorn, this is an excellent time to get the relationship back on the right footing and begin to rebuild structure and foundation. You will notice that it will be easier to negotiate and reach a compromise. Also, if your sex life has been in a slump, Mars-Venus will help spice it up! So, even though Valentine’s Day happens on February 14th, in the cosmos cupids arrow strikes on the 16th.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, February 14, 2022

We start the week off with Mercury moving out of Capricorn and back into Aquarius. Remember, Aquarius is the sign Mercury turned retrograde in last month, so all you Mercury shadow watchers, the end is near.

The sign of Aquarius is about progress. On the personal level, we can say that Aquarius is the sign that helps make our lives better than it is now. So Mercury, moving through the sign of the water bearer, helps us develop strategies, plans, and ways to help us level up. Pay close attention to your current interests or anything you learn at this time, because it may provide insight about the future.

The Moon moves through playful Leo and forms a tense opposition to Saturn. Although you would rather play and have some fun, the burdens of Saturn may leave you feeling frustrated and cranky.  The key to working with this aspect is to take care of business, but save some time for the fun stuff. Remember, all work and no play make Jill a sad girl.

The Full Moon occurs in fiery Leo. The sign of Leo reflects our inner purpose (destiny) and personal identity. Since the Full Moon cycle is about letting go of what no longer serves you, this Full Moon is excellent for banishing self-defeating behaviors and everything in your life that doesn’t bring you joy. Also, if you need reputation repair, this is the perfect time to leave your past mistakes behind and embrace the real you – warts and all.

Thursday, February 17, 2022

Today, Jupiter forms a sextile to Uranus in Taurus. If you’ve been waiting for an auspicious time to make positive changes in your life, look no further – Jupiter sextile Uranus will get the job done. While this aspect is active (next two weeks), it’s a beneficial time to change jobs, make financial investments, and take risks. Since Jupiter is highly dignified in Pisces, anything you put your mind and energy into should be successful.

The Sun moves out of the airy realms of Aquarius and dives deep into the oceanic depths of Pisces.

Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac. It reflects the process of going inward after eleven months of experiencing the outer world and preparing to begin the process again once the Sun moves into Aries in March. The yearly cycle (actually, all cycles) resembles the cycle of the Moon. As the Moon fades away during the waning crescent Moon, it’s time to focus on what we need to let go of, do releasing work, healing, and bring old matters to a conclusion. We are given a larger window to work on these issues during Pisces season.  Just a warning: this type of work shouldn’t be done haphazardly. Instead, it should be done with careful thought and consideration.

Saturday, February 19, 2022

The Moon moves through social Libra and forms a beautiful trine to Mercury in Aquarius. If you’ve experienced some cabin fever over the past few months, it’s time to get out, smell the fresh air, and socialize with people. It’s an excellent day for a lunch date or a get together. The main point is connecting with others, especially those you care about.

Sunday, February 20, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Libra and squares Venus and Mars. You may experience some minor conflict with others today, but matters should resolve quickly. Try to remain as proactive as possible and use your wise mind.

See you next week!

Cosmic Weather Forecast – January 14, 2019 – January 20, 2019

This week is filled to the brim with astrological energy – both beneficial and challenging.

So, buckle up buttercup, and prepare for some turbulence.

We begin the week with the Sun in Aquarius, and Aquarius seasons is one of my favorite seasons of the year because it allows us to break free of anything that has been holding us back and Aquarius is our personal revolution month to let go of self-defeating behaviors, relationships, careers, or groups that are holding us back.

Aquarius is not concerned with the now, it is concerned with the future and wants to leave the past behind.  This might be difficult for earthy (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) dispositions, but we all (even the earth signs) have things we need to eliminate from our lives.  The good news is that Uranus, Aquarius’ co-ruler, is moving through energetic Aries and gives us the boost of energy necessary to take the challenge to free ourselves once and for all.  Whereas Saturn, Aquarius other co-ruler is moving through its own sign of Capricorn ensuring that we will land on solid ground if we are willing to do the work and put for the effort necessary to move forward, which gives us the green light to take risks.

In other cosmic news, we have a major lunar eclipse on Monday in fiery Leo.

Eclipses are complex and influence many areas of life, especially the political, which is why there’s a flurry of news around eclipses.  We have experienced a plethora of never-ending breaking news since the solar eclipse occurred in Capricorn two weeks ago.  Moreover, you can expect more political turbulence with the lunar eclipse, as well.

On the personal level, the sign of Leo involves self-focus and you will notice a lot of people that are rather self-involved over the next two weeks, perhaps annoyingly so.  But all astrological positions have a purpose including the lunar eclipse in Leo.  On a deeper level, this Leonine eclipse reflects a six-month period where we focus on our personal needs apart from the group.  In other words, when nobody is around and when there isn’t anyone looking, who are you? And perhaps, more importantly, who do you want to be?

Now, on with the forecast…

Monday, January 21, 2019

Besides the lunar eclipse in Leo, we have a major aspect between Mars and Saturn that occurs on Monday.

First, let me say that these two planets together are very frustrating, and it will feel like you are going no place in a hurry.  You may feel that people (including family members and loved ones) are discouraging your desires and they may even doubt your actions, which may lead to feelings of insecurity, self-doubt, and succumbing to your fears.  Although these people may have the best of intentions, do not let them stifle your ambitions.  Instead, continue to push forward and realize that slow and steady wins the race and remember the more you persevere and continue to go after the prize, you will ultimately succeed.

Tuesday, January 22, 2019

You may need to put your material ambitions aside, if even for a day, as Venus and Jupiter conjoin in Sagittarius.  Venus and Jupiter are great for relationships but focus and self-discipline are not two keywords associated with these two planets.  Instead, you may want to focus on your relationships and partnerships because Venus-Jupiter aspects tend to bring out the best in everyone and more ‘good feeling’ activities are useful to increase morale.  This aspect is meant to be enjoyed, so try to have some fun today.

Wednesday, January 23, 2019

Your mind will be in overdrive today as Mercury in Capricorn forms a difficult square to Uranus in Aries.  Thoughts and ideas will flood your mind and since this is a tense aspect, you may feel anxious and overwhelmed.  You should not focus on activities that require concentration and precision and try to avoid hasty statements (the tongue tends to flap without thinking with Mercury-Uranus aspects) that you may not be able to take back.  Be practice, not reactive.

Thursday, January 24, 2019

On Thursday, Mercury moves out of earthy Capricorn and moves into airy Aquarius.  Mercury in Aquarius places ideas and concepts on equal footing to physical reality and this position is great for understanding patterns or how something works.  Mercury, in the sign of the water bearer, likes to get to the truth and will analyze everything in order to discover it, which is particularly useful for problem-solving and making changes in your life.  Mercury remains in Aquarius until February 11, 2019.

Friday, January 25, 2019

The final aspect of the week occurs on Friday when Mars in Aries forms a lovely trine to Jupiter in Sagittarius.

Mars trine Jupiter is an extremely positive aspect.  Pretty much any activity you choose to pursue will turn out successful.  If you need to do something to advance your own cause, this aspect provides you with enormous foresight to achieve your goals.  Take advantage of this energy while it’s available because it won’t happen again until late July.

The Weekend

The Moon spends the weekend moving through Libra and Scorpio and forms a few troubling aspects.  Relationships may be tense, and you may feel overwhelmed emotionally. So, you may want to spend as much time as you can alone or try to avoid others as much as possible until more positive energies are available.

See you next week…
