Tuesday: The Sun, our self radiating outward, character and ego moves into Pisces bringing us introspection, imagination, sensitivity and intuition.
2019 Year at a Glance forPisces (Feb. 18–March 20) What did you want to be when you grew up? The dreams of childhood can be a powerful catalyst for 2019. You don’t have to dramatically shift course and become a ballerina-astronaut, but you can let the unlimited imagination of your child self inspire you as you make choices about your role in the world.
Opportunity calls you to step into more confidence in the outer world. There may be set-backs in the late spring, early summer, but you can use that time to reflect on what fills you with enthusiasm and passion.Rhea Wolf © Mother Tongue Ink 2018 from WM 2019 p. 59
Saturday: Challenging Moon/Venus aspects can bring social awkwardness, hot or cold emotions, longing, questionable aesthetics. Cure: perform a random act of kindness, diplomacy, art therapy.
Sunday: Challenging Moon/Mars aspects instigate irritability, willfulness, anger, hurry, a competitive or contrary attitude. Cure: exercise, chop wood, take a brisk walk, acknowledge desires or frustrations, and then finesse that argument. Exercise awareness.
Tuesday: Full Moon in Virgo, Sun opposition the moon. The Moon our inward sense of self, emotions and psyche moves into Virgo making us mercurial, curious, critical, and engaged. The mood sharpens our minds and nerves, and sends us back to work.
Wednesday: Challenging Moon/Mercury aspects bring a tendency to get lost in the mind and inspire glitches in all things Mercurial; we can get more edgy, irritable, anxious, scattered, diffused, glib. Cure for Moon/Mercury discomfort: Reconnect mind and heart. Do you need to be diplomatic? Nurture romance? Create? Choose supportive Moon/Venus aspects. They warm our hearts and add sociability, cuddliness, compassion, creativity and good taste.
Friday:Challenging Moon/Venus aspects can bring social awkwardness, hot or cold emotions, longing, questionable aesthetics. Cure: perform a random act of kindness, diplomacy, art therapy.excerptsadapted from Heather Roan Robbins‘ Sun Signs and Sun Transits

excerpt by Heather Roan Robbins—Visit our Astology Connection page for the complete daily predictions for the week and an overview of the Year for the current SunSign.The astrological weather has shifted for the moment, the planets may irritate us less but leave us more sensitized and stubborn with motivating Mars now in Taurus and mental Mercury in subtle Pisces. Tempers chill when Mars left flammable Aries yesterday, but are replaced with more determination as Taurus now travels through stubborn if even-keeled Taurus. We’re less likely to argue, and more likely just to follow through on our plans. . . . The Sun joins Mercury in watery Pisces on Sunday, and helps us become more aware of the interconnectedness of our lives and our ecosystem, more aware of the scale and complexity of our concerns. Which can give us a real gift to accomplish in those sensitive realms, but can leave us feeling easily overwhelmed when we take in the woes of the world. We may get exhausted trying find the beginning of this tangled ball of yarn. . . . But for the next month, let’s take care of ourselves if we feel overwhelmed. Let’s note our thinking process and keep an eye on where the mind goes. . . . We have support right now from Venus in Capricorn and Mars in Taurus, both durable, concrete earth signs, which means our work can be therapeutic. We’ll feel better if we feel like we’re getting somewhere. . . .
