February 15: The moon enters Sagittarius



The moon is square the sun (3rd quarter) at 2:17 p.m.

The brooding Scorpio moon comes onto a square aspect with the sun in Aquarius today, marking the last quarter phase of the lunar cycle. This is a turning point in the month, where energies start to become concentrated on a sense of completion, and our activity starts to wane. Scorpio and Aquarius are both fixed signs, meaning they both tend to hold to their differing perspectives with equal tenacity, making flexibility and compromise difficult. We may have to weigh the benefits of taking a stand and sticking with a particular position against the concessions that have to be made for the sake of the bigger picture.

The moon is sextile Saturn at 2:20 p.m.

Sticking with our position and decision on a matter may result in constructive outcomes in the end as the moon forms a complimentary sextile aspect with Saturn in determined Capricorn. Scorpio is a sign of tenaciously following one’s instinct, beyond logic, which blends with the patience and long-enduring strength of Saturn in its earthy home sign. These two forces are effective and formidable together by blending emotional intelligence with resourcefulness to move mountains—both, figuratively and actually.


The moon enters Sagittarius at 8:07 p.m.

By nightfall, the cosmic atmosphere heats up and becomes more active as the moon shifts into fiery Sagittarius. The truth-seeking Centaur’s sign draws out bold expressions and at times what feels like brutal honesty can be disruptive or cathartic, depending on the circumstances. The moon is now co-present with Mars in the last stages of its time in Sagittarius, bringing emotions and combative reactivity together. It ups the stakes on our conversations and helps to inspire spontaneity, enthusiasm, and courage when speaking what is in our hearts and minds.
