Weekly Horoscope: February 21–February 27, 2021
As we move toward March, the more pleasant astrological aspects begin to rain down on us. As if the heavens are parting to reveal the jewels in the sky, we shall experience a more delightful week, one where we not only focus on our ambitions, but also open ourselves up to pleasure. Look up and feel the Universe’s embrace and encouragement to move forward. While we are still in the post-shadow of the Mercury retrograde phase for a couple of weeks ahead, the pace of life is certainly picking up. Also, this is an especially auspicious time to launch new things, begin projects, and start relationships, as the planets will all be direct until April 27. Carpe diem!
The first major aspect of the week will take place on the twenty-fourth, as sizzling Mars in Taurus tosses a golden chain across the sky to powerhouse Pluto in Capricorn. As with all Mars transits, there is a long string of days this energy will likely be felt leading up to it as well as after. Mars is like that comet in the sky, soaring with a blazing tail. Prepare to feel assertive and confident, while still maintaining an easy path toward your plans. Harness this goal-directed energy and launch toward your greatest ambitions.
Some individuals may be asked to step into power at this time, as this is a transit that highlights leadership. Personal relationships can also improve because of this feisty energy! Not only will one be able to wield power and influence more readily, but this can also draw others magnetically to you. Passions will be intensified, which can unite individuals intimately or sexually.
On the twenty-fifth, radiant goddess Venus will swim among the reefs of Pisces for the weeks ahead. This is a truly magical moment, as this is where she is exalted and can give her most luxurious and abundant blessings. This will increase creativity, sensuality, and romance exponentially! Soulmate connections could be around every corner, as Venus spins her web of light and attraction. Whether single or attached, make your heart’s desires a top priority!
The Pisces sun will align in a harmonious sextile with electric Uranus on the twenty-fifth as well. Get ready for surprises and vibrant interactions! The pace of life will quicken and you may become encouraged to try something new and exciting. Flashes of insight and creativity are also quite likely, so don’t sit back in your comfort zone. Be courageous and inventive!
As we draw toward the twenty-seventh, a full moon in Virgo will shimmer across the clouds and dance up into the night. This lunation will be felt for a few days before and after and culminate matters that you have been building over the last six months. Full moons bring turning points, awakenings, achievements, or endings that are often quite emotional. This particular lunation will help you to assess your productivity and how you are establishing your work-life routine. Harness this energy to get ready for spring-cleaning.
