- Saturday the 18th: Sun in Pisces,
Waning Half Moon in Sagittarius
- Moon moves through:
Sagittarius / Capricorn / Aquarius
Open. Receptive. Imaginative. Intuitive. Transparent. Pisces is endlessly endearing because of its natural inclination to be open to and affected by life.
This spring’s Venus retrograde will further your already famous ability to feel. When Venus slides backwards into Pisces in April and spends the month there, you will have an enormous opportunity for self-reflection, self-forgiveness and mending old self-image issues….

Pisces Sun (Feb 18–March 20): Dream. Mutable Water Pisces reminds us to hibernate, to renew our wells with rest, introspection, feed our fertile imagination, and create safety for our sensitivity and intuition. The energy level is low, but sensitive and aware; we process and gestate our dreams for the year ahead.
Those born under a Pisces Sun contribute refined sensibilities. They are our canaries in the mine; they feel gifts and challenges before anyone else, and bring our attention to unusual beauty, to potential problems, and to new visions for blue skies ahead.
Moon in Sagittarius by day: Our temper lightens; we grow resilient, frank, restless and need a change of scene. Our minds roam the natural world, to faraway places and vast philosophies. While we’re impatient with details close to home, we open our hearts to children and wild animals. Dance, hike, explore the night away.
• Sagittarius MoonChild’s gregarious optimism for adventures and wild uncharted possibilities.
• Capricorn MoonChild who is born wise, growing younger with age, a determined alchemist who knows how to make gold from ordinary materials.
• Aquarius MoonChild’s essential zaniness that provokes the weird and invokes the genius in everyone. Teams and tribes naturally gather around her.

Enjoy the entire weeks outlook on our Astology Connection webpage.
…under duress and in a potentially willful week, the planets ask us to look at how we use our personal power, our political and financial power, how we use our fossil fuels, because they are all connected. We need to look in our simple daily interactions and our spiritual life as well as our politics, and ask are we using all of these for the best of all sentient beings. What transformation can we catalyze to improve our situation, across the board….
… Saturday, February 18: The Sun enters Pisces, beginning what is normally a month where we review the past, rest, dream, and prepare for spring, where we take care of feelings as tender as the first snowdrop flowers. But this year those tender feelings sprout in a world that’s edgier, less interested in vulnerability, more action-oriented. Today’s Sagittarius Moon suggests that if we get out in the wild or take a break from routine, we can renew our resilience. After a more private, potentially resentful, morning, the Moon enter Sagittarius Moon and encourages us to be outspoken, but we can choose to do so in a kindly way. Let the day be diverse: rather than feel conflicted about what to do or who to do it with, time share….
