Take Care of Yourself!
It's time to find more balance in your life as the full Moon in Virgo on February 25 highlights themes of self-care. Shortly after this full Moon, but also on February 25, love blooms as Venus enters romantic Pisces. Just watch out for misunderstandings on February 26 as retrograde Mercury conjuncts feisty Mars for the second time this month! Finally, on March 1, the Sun sextiles Pluto and trines Saturn, connecting you with individuals who can help you.
February 25: Full Moon in Virgo
As this hard-working Virgo Moon is opposed by several planets (the Sun, Mercury, Mars, and Neptune -- all in sensitive Pisces), you'll want to watch out for multi-tasking exhaustion. You're overly sensitive at this time, and everything affects you more than usual. As Jupiter in Gemini squares this full Moon, you may become overloaded with information, so take time to sort out everything you're learning about yourself and others. In the days following this full Moon, but before the next new Moon on March 11, prepare a plan that will enable you to take care of your body, mind, and spirit.
February 25: Venus enters Pisces
Do you have a soul mate? It's time to make room for romance as Venus, the love planet, enters spiritual Pisces! Once each year when Venus transits through this Water sign, your heart seeks a deep connection. Whether you're married, in a committed relationship, or single, this is a perfect time to strengthen the spiritual bonds with those you care most about -- including yourself! Can you leave the busy "thinking world" behind for the time being? Make time to meditate, listen to inspiring music, commune with nature, and turn off your noisy mind. There are times when love and appreciation needs no words ... and this is one of them.
February 26: Retrograde Mercury conjuncts Mars
Do you feel as if you're mired in an argument that will never end? This is the time to return to a recent conversation (or perhaps a previous idea) for review; just don't hope for a neat conclusion yet! And with warrior planet Mars weighing in, you certainly won't want to say anything in the heat of the moment that you'll later regret! Mercury is retrograde now, which means you're still working out details and straightening out misunderstandings. You'll find resolution next month once Mercury turns direct on March 17.
March 1: The Sun sextiles Pluto and trines Saturn
All your hard work pays off now, as these aspects bring opportunities that can showcase your talents! People in positions of power take notice -- and they're willing to help you. Make the most of this opportunity by putting yourself in the right place at the right time. Keep in mind, of course, that Mercury is still retrograde, so go over your plans and presentations carefully, and make allowances for last-minute changes. The more you're able to adapt to changing circumstances, the better you'll do. These aspects occur only twice each year, so don't waste this beneficial time!
