Happy Valentines week! Coming off the big and bold Leo Full Moon, we start this week with lots of big ideas, but as lovely, compassionate and creative as Mercury is in the sign of Pisces, we’re feeling somewhat confused, fuzzy, losing track of time and just a bit off in our day to day routines. Why? Because it’s slowing down all week preparing to retrograde on Sunday. And it will affect Valentine’s Day. You’ve got some potential for mix ups that can ultimately get out of hand. Make sure your plans are firmly in place early in the week for the big day of romance and then have a backup plan. Just in case. The Daily Planetary Guide suggests you “stash the ring until the retrograde is over on March 9”. Check in with yourself and before you ask or accept, intuitively FEEL your way through this. If there’s any tiny seed of doubt they’re “the one” you might want to wait before making that big a commitment.
Mercury retrograde is not the end of the world, but it does make it difficult to stay focused. In Pisces it can also make you feel like retreating or feel a little mentally drained. Which is normal for this transit as it is always about going inward, taking some time for reflection and review and rethinking your priorities. Just don’t carry it too far into avoiding responsibilities.
If you have planets at 12 degrees of Sagittarius or Gemini you might experience more difficulty staying on task. The opposition in Virgo reminds you to keep a good balance and listen to your partner’s or close associates perspective before making a firm decision.
Personally, I’m going to immerse myself in music, self care and easing into each day more gently during this time, rather than pushing past my limits. That’s just good advice for any time, but as I’m generally a go-go-go person, I’ll have to be more mindful that all happens in divine timing. Mars goes into Capricorn on Sunday also, which gives us some helpful grounding energy to accomplish tasks in a steady and efficient manner, once we adjust to the new energy. Have a lovely week!
Aries (March 21-April 20) You’re gifted by the universe with a chance to recognize where you’ve set limits on yourself. This week you break the cycle and take the first step to a new sense of freedom.
Taurus (April 21-May 20) Things seem to be moving along steadily early in the week, then you hit a pause. You’re easily able to overcome what seems at first to be insurmountable. Keep going but maybe in a slightly different direction.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) The magic of this week happens in the workplace. Wrapping up major projects opens up an opportunity for bigger things to happen. And it all seems to fall into place now. It’s likely something you never saw coming.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) In a weird way, this retrograde energy works for you. You’ll intuitively know what the right thing is to do in a sticky situation with an individual who inserts themselves into something that’s none of their business. Speaking the truth may sting, but if it’s from the heart, that’s the best you can do.
Leo (July 23-August 22) Spending is tricky now as in typical Leo fashion, like to pick up the check and lavish gifts on your loved ones. Think in realistic terms now and make sure you put your money where it is most practical first, then splurge if you want on extras.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) Valentine’s Day doesn’t just have to be about romantic love. Single Virgos will feel like celebrating with friends and family, sharing stories and memories of loved ones. Partnered Virgos can turn up the heat of passion regardless of how long it’s been cool or how distant or scattered your partner has been lately.
Libra (September 23-October 22) You’ll see things coming together now as you seemlessly flow from work to family events and responsibilities. A philanthropic opportunity comes along and you just can’t wait to get on board to make a difference.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) Sleep may be scarce so make sure you schedule time to recharge throughout the week. There’s so much going on in your head you’ll have to keep it simple-one task at a time. While you can handle it, avoid counting on a close friend to come through for you. She’s got more going on than you think.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Cooperation and moderation are your keywords for the week. Would you rather be right or be happy? Even though you feel like you’re running out of patience waiting to get what’s rightfully yours, this is not the week to spout off at the boss. Focus on taking better care of yourself.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Consider all the possibilities when an interesting proposition falls in your lap.You’ll have to do some digging to get more information and to counter the offer but this could be something you want to seriously consider. Just don’t rush in quite yet.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) A close friend or partner’s words may sting at first but what you realize is there is some truth in there. As you ponder what this means, you’ll realize it’s just the wake up call you need to get back into the flow of prosperity and fulfillment.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) Support and encouragement comes from a place you least expected. This is one of those weeks you’ll want to spend time journaling and reflecting on where you’ve come from and how much you’ve accomplished in your life. This gives you a better idea of all the possibilities ahead.
