February 22—Full Moon: Illuminating. This lunar cycle began in Aquarius and culminates in the polarity of Pisces and Virgo. The Aquarian seed time of the New Moon was a chance to plant intention around the ideas of edges and centers. Aquarius pushes the edges of groups and structures, asking what is possible, what can we change? Have you done work around your own edges? What I have noticed is that any push toward the edge also pulls me back to the center. This pulsation is part of growing awareness. Rather than be attached to one place or another, both the center and the edge are vital places to inhabit. The work of this week and today’s Full Moon in Virgo is to develop discernment about where we need to be at any moment.
Tuesday, February, 23. If your heart cracks open today, try to breathe past the desire to fix things. This opening is important. Chiron in Pisces opposes Jupiter and the Moon in Virgo. By making a square to Saturn in Sagittarius later in the day, the Moon draws together this sensation that if we can stand the vulnerability, we can also begin to master discernment and self-care too. It is critical to avoid self-shaming under this influence. It may be a day to practice loving yourself beyond all reason. Pluto in Capricorn helps by adding strong, powerful grounding to the day.
Wednesday, February 24. Are you doing your work of discerning when to act and when to wait? Have you improved your ability to hold emotional honesty? Have you exercised the skill of drawing boundaries? Saying no? Congratulations. This feels like a productive day. Enjoy.
Thursday, February 25. Commitment to justice and fairness in communication is strong today. Every vision needs a plan for following up. How do we implement our brilliant ideas? Mercury in Aquarius inspires the desire to break down the barriers. A sextile between Mercury and Saturn in Sagittarius provides just enough grounded support to formulate those plans. We desire to elevate our efforts to benefit the collective. The Libra Moon asks for balance and equity, and beauty. May our solutions be elegant.
February 26—Disseminating Moon: Sharing. To recap, this lunar cycle began in Aquarian seed time and has transitioned into the Pisces season. The Pisces New Moon will follow the completion of the current lunar cycle. There have been so many influences on our desires to bring change and vision to the world—a core Aquarian initiative! I set an intention at the beginning of this cycle to learn more about my edges and centers. I’ve experienced peak moments in both places. Under the Pisces influences of the cycle, I’ve deepened (as water encourages us to do) into paradox and shared experiences of exclusion, marginalization, and the trauma of isolation (even when it is shared!). At this phase, we begin to harvest the wisdom of the experiences of the lunar cycle. And we share it.
Saturday, February 27. The quincunx aspect between Mercury in Aquarius and Jupiter in Virgo brings up the need to surrender a fixed point of view. Conflicts may arise around values and methods. The pressure to be perfect could be strong. The gift of this paradox-filled day is more capacity to see diverse perspectives. With the waning Moon in Scorpio, the desire to be alone or with those we most trust is strong. We are sorting and sifting information.
Sunday, February 28. Once a year, the Sun conjoins with Neptune. Today, the illuminating, conscious influence of the Sun blends with the transpersonal, diffuse influence of Neptune. Sometimes, it feels like these two forces are antithetic to each other. The Sun encourages our sense of self and identity and purpose. Neptune dissolves those things into transcendence. Rather than experience these things as opposite, we get a sense of how our conscious purpose can merge with something outside our own ego structures. This may not be a simple task, however. The Moon in Scorpio makes squares to Venus and Mercury in Aquarius. Fixed ideas and emotions need to be dealt with too.
