February 12: Inspiring Connections
The moon is sextile Uranus at 12:30 p.m.
In the afternoon, the dreamy Pisces moon forms a sweet sextile to Uranus in Taurus, stimulating surprise encounters with people, places, and new ideas. With our higher mind vibrating under the influence of cosmic-awakener Uranus, we are granted insights that seem serendipitous and magical.
Following our intuition typically has the power to lead us into exciting situations, but today’s events may especially take us off guard. We are so relaxed and at peace that we aren’t expecting anything extraordinary until it falls right in our lap. There is a secret to this which goes beyond a lucky alignment of the stars: when we are relaxed, insights occur to us organically, which we would not have time or energy to take stock of in busier moments.
During the moon-Uranus sextile, our minds absorb concepts relatively quickly, incorporating them as powerful new tools in our arsenal, and affecting our environment by proxy. If we live in a mental state of compassion and gratitude, we are forming the conditions that we will see in the world. Consider the power of your emotions today, how your behaviors have lasting impact. Think beyond what appears possible and see it become reality before your eyes.
Mercury retrograde is conjunct Venus at 11:48 p.m.
Shortly before midnight, Mercury retrograde and Venus connect in Aquarius, offering us the ability to express what is in our hearts. A genuine fondness and appreciation for others can now be vocalized, and yet, given this connection is in Aquarius, we approach the idea of love and affection from a more restrained and intellectual place.
This is a good time to tell someone that you care for them. Dating or meeting new people is also favored, as Mercury-Venus is an excellent “getting to know you” connection, during which we can share details about ourselves and our interests without feeling the pressure to perform. Conversation flows naturally, and even if we stumble over our words, our sentiments will be accurately communicated.
