February 13: Sensuality and Sentimentality
The moon is sextile Mars at 11:55 a.m.
The moon is conjunct Neptune at 12:11 p.m.
Before noon, the Pisces moon forms a sextile to Mars in Taurus, a good-natured transit that makes us charismatic and alluring. The Pisces moon stimulates our intuitive powers and imaginations, and Mars in tactile Taurus can cause our sensuality to rocket off the charts. The subsequent environment is both erotic and spiritual; pleasing to the senses with magical overtones. Intimate relationships are especially improved by this influence, when a glance across a room will say more than a lengthy speech.
Following this, the Pisces moon conjuncts Neptune, bringing us fully into fantasy mode. Be careful, at this time, not to imagine connections that aren’t there. During this transit, we may fool ourselves into thinking we can manifest by faith alone. Ask yourself: Are you truly trusting your intuition, or is it just that you so badly want something to exist that you believe you can manifest it simply by wishing it were true?
We’ve all been there! Yet by keeping our wits about us and our expectations in check, we can have beautiful experiences without self-deception. This time is meant to inspire, but it can also create confusion and crossed wires. When in doubt, pay attention to others’ actions, as they speak louder than words. This is the surest way to keep our feet on the ground while still enjoying a head-in-the-clouds moment.
Mars is sextile Neptune at 6:13 p.m.
In the afternoon, Mars and Neptune sextile from their places in Taurus and Pisces, respectively. This signature is ideal for lovers, as it continues to ramp up the sensuality and sentimentality we saw in their aspects to the moon earlier in the day. Mystical attraction is heightened, which takes things up a notch in the romantic department and makes interactions feel fated and spiritual. If you are not partnered, this is an excellent influence for treating yourself to something luxurious or even romancing yourself with treats and sexy self-care.
The moon is sextile Pluto at 11:29 p.m., and moon void of course begins
Before midnight, the moon sextiles Pluto in Capricorn. This influence inspires us to not fear intimacy and the unknown, and to express feelings that we may normally be too insecure to disclose. We can now get to the bottom of behaviors which may have unknown origins, yet which are ones that have held us back from relating deeply.
This could be inspired by a potential connection with another person, but it is more likely that you simply need to open up to probing your own unconscious in order to understand the ways in which you have limited yourself, and chart a new course.
Following this, the moon void of course begins, coinciding with slumber.
