February 22: The moon enters Pisces




The sun is sextile Uranus at 6:13 a.m.


With Pisces season well underway, the sun comes into a supportive sextile with Uranus in Taurus this morning. This brings our intuition and perceptions into phase with the radical energies that are reshaping our world. This sextile sets the day off on a note of illumination and innovation, where our ability to be adaptive helps us flow in new directions with our growth and awareness. Pisces is self-sacrificing, compassionate, and empathetic—so this sextile between the sun and revolutionary Uranus helps us trust and invest in the unseen currents that are hard to quantify, but nonetheless are powerfully reshaping our reality.


The moon enters Pisces at 10:37 p.m.

These last moments of lunar light carry us deep into reflection and meditation, likely providing an insular atmosphere this weekend that beckons us toward rest and solitude. It may be hard to focus on anything that seems outwardly productive or constructive, yet it’s not the time to be striving to materialize anything concrete… just yet.

Swimming, float tanks, or any kind of hydrotherapy may feel especially appropriate, as the two fishes invite us to abandon gravity for a while…
