February 3: Mercury enters Pisces, and Venus is sextile Saturn



The moon is square Mercury, then enters Gemini at 3:29 a.m.

Early morning, the lunar mood shifts, becoming more dispersive and stimulating as the moon passes through an edgy square aspect with Mercury in Aquarius, and then moves out of Taurus into the airy and curious sign of the Twins.

Mercury enters Pisces at 3:37 a.m.

The speedy messenger planet, ruling over thought, language, and communications leaves cool and objective Aquarius behind to splash into the dreamy and sentimental waters of Pisces. Pisces is one of Jupiter’s classical zodiac signs, and so favors expansive imagining over the type of analysis and detailed focus that Mercury typically likes to encourage, so the next few weeks set us up for more creative, wandering, tangential conversations. Mercury joins Venus and Neptune here in this compassionate realm, so matters of love and illusion may color our connections. Pisces is a receptive sign, which encourages us to dissolve the inner boundaries of the mind, making this a great time to go into vision-mode with plans and ideas, and not rush into making them become real, just yet…


Venus is sextile Saturn at 2:01 p.m.

Venus in Pisces comes into a perfect sextile with stern Saturn in authoritative Capricorn this afternoon, bringing matters of love and affection into harmony with duty and responsibility. We may feel more confident now to make deeper, long-term commitments, finding these a source of support and security in our troubled times. Though we can never fully know how life will unfold, we can stick to our integrity and honor our promises as a way to foster dependable, supportive relationships, and community structures in a world where many seem to have lost their heart, and principles.
