For the Week of February 19 through February 25
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
The sign Sagittarius shares with the sign Aquarius the joy of and need for freedom. So, get out and move about, see all the space around you, and take note of the independence of each growing thing in nature.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Capricorn
Capricorn also appreciates independence, mostly due to the great sense of capability and achievement that is inherent in this sign. It’s taken for granted that things will get done. The big thing here is to remember to pat yourself on the back for all that you have accomplished.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Aquarius
Do something clever, offbeat, spontaneous or unusual this weekend. It will be a super mental health break for everyone. And be sure to exhibit your witty side as well.
Check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well.
For example, the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain – however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place…then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place…have a party! Don’t have an astrology chart? Click here .

Note: Timeframes for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).
▪ v/c = Void-of-Course – When the Moon is void-of-course, spend time working on projects already in progress, creative endeavors, or self-improvement. Void-of-course simply means that no planets are aspecting the Moon as it gets ready to change signs; there won’t be a configuration of astro energy available to utilize. It’s best not to start new projects, sign important agreements, or go shopping when the Moon is void-of-course because the result will probably be unsatisfactory in some way.
Mercury Retrograde – the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the ‘fritz’ during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. (Read More about Mercury Retrograde)
