Weekly Horoscope for Feb. 16-22
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
Mercury in Pisces, soon to go retrograde*, is square the Moon in Sag. Be very careful about flippancy (from yourself) and exaggeration (from others).
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Capricorn
Mars, Saturn, and the asteroid Pallas (see more info in the Note below) are conjunct the Moon in Capricorn. Keep things organized and to the point. Avoid messing around and procrastinating.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Aquarius
This would be a good time to cut loose and do something completely different.
When reading this weekly horoscope, 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 .
It is interesting to note when the current Moon is in the same sign as your birth Moon and to see how the flavor of that day carries through the following 30 days.
Current Planet Positions:
Sun – Aquarius until Feb. 19, then Pisces
Mercury – Pisces until Apr. 11
(*retrograde Feb. 17-Mar. 10)
Venus – Aries until Mar. 5
**Mars – Capricorn until Mar. 31
**Jupiter – Capricorn until Dec. 20
**Saturn – Capricorn until Dec. 17
Uranus – Taurus until Apr. 26, 2026
Neptune – Pisces until Mar. 30, 2025
**Pluto – Capricorn until Nov. 20, 2024
**Note: Saturn & Pluto (the two astrological heavy-hitters) are in Capricorn until mid-Dec. 2020. Regard and carry out your responsibilities seriously. You may have to reconstruct part or all of your foundation.
Mars, the other heavy-hitter, has joined Saturn & Pluto in Capricorn for a while. It may bring confrontations or it may give you lots of energy.
Pallas will be in Capricorn until early Dec. of this year. This asteroid may also be invigorating and will help you keep your aim straight and true.
Jupiter is now in Capricorn and will mellow some of the Saturn situations as it joins that planet for the rest of its transit.
Additionally, keep in mind that Capricorn is Saturn’s home base sign and that accomplishments and achievements are likely, so give yourself praise where praise is due.
Current Asteroid Positions:
Ceres – Aquarius until Apr. 24
**Pallas – Capricorn until Dec. 8
Juno – Libra until Sept. 21
Vesta – Taurus until Mar. 22
Chiron – Aries until May, 2027
Current Asteroid Transits:
Ceres – A person on whom you have always depended for support may bow out of that role unexpectedly, probably not forever but at least for now.
Pallas – There can be a feeling of being in the right place at the right time, kind of like something magic happened.
Juno – With the partnership asteroid (Juno) in the sign that rules love commitments (Libra), there is a year-long emphasis on those two things.
Vesta – Devote yourself to a long-term passion that you may have put to the side but that now could open up your life in some way.
Chiron – Release pent-up anger; chart a new course for yourself.
Note: Weekly horoscope time frames 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)v
