Now that all the planets are moving in a forward direction things begin to speed up. In the coming weeks and months, we will be thinking more of what is ahead of us and less of what is behind us.
We can make plans for the experiences, projects, and adventures that we want to create. An easier flow develops. This comes as a relief and we know that a new Spring is ahead of us and now coming into focus.
Some people are creative in everything they do. I have a sibling whose eldest offspring serves their child these wonderful breakfast creations each day. You can follow these daily creations on Instagram at mgfarrington. They give me a jolt of pleasure each and every day. Thank you, Aaron, Sylvie will never forget.
POWER BELOW THE SURFACE
Thursday, February 10, 2022
On the surface, today looks like a simple day with the Moon passing through Gemini, making a lovely trine aspect to supportive Saturn at 3:21 PM EST. However, there are more powerful dynamics underground that will come to the surface today or tomorrow.
Mercury happily turned direct a week ago but is still passing over the ground they covered while retrograde. Tomorrow morning Mercury will make their final conjunction to Pluto. We will talk about this more in tomorrow’s post but it will help to be preparing and thinking about it now.
If your thinking remains superficial today, you may say something that creates difficulties tomorrow. A serious powerful mental consideration is in the works. Don’t be in a hurry but do pay attention to what you need to say and how to do so without causing harm. Don’t let resentments or power plays fester under the surface. Turn a light on your own intentions and make sure they are of high integrity, clarity, and kindness.
CONVERSATIONS OF POWER AND INTENSITY
Friday, February 11, 2022
The Moon continues through Gemini for most of the day but doesn’t suggest the casual lightness we generally think of when the Moon is in Gemini.
At 9:04 AM EST Mercury joins with Pluto for the last of three times connected to Mercury’s recent retrograde. December 30, 2021, Mercury (direct) joined with Pluto. January 28th Mercury (retrograde) joined with Pluto, and today it makes its final contact. After this Mercury will get out of Pluto’s intense deep territory.
What profound difficult conversations or powerful contemplations have been relevant at this time? This conjunction occurs at 27 degrees Capricorn. Take note of the house that holds Capricorn in your chart. If you have planets in the very late degrees of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) this is very relevant for you personally.
If you are able to identify the issue in your life know that this is the end of (this chapter) of the story. What were the powerful topics and the intense conversations occurring in your life during this time? Expect to revisit the issues, topics, and conversations in some manner.
For larger-scale issues, keep an eye on the Ukraine tension and the Ghislaine Maxwell story over these few days.
At 6:27 PM EST, the Moon moves into Cancer bringing your attention closer to home and hearth. Spend the evening with close family and friends. Plan to hunker down for the weekend with loved ones.
COMFORT AND SENSITIVITY
Saturday, February 12, 2022
With the Moon now in Cancer, it is time to release all restlessness and any difficulties held over from the week.
This weekend is meant for getting in touch with deep feelings, sensitivities, and motivations. You want to spend time at home with those you love, to be able to settle into a state of comfort.
Cooking, feeding your loved ones, and nurturing others is likely to be high on your priority list. Plan a family dinner and spend the day cooking. Food is indeed one of the quickest ways to touch the heart of another. Nurture is such a primal need, when food is lovingly prepared we feel it as love.
At 2:35 PM EST as the Cancer Moon trines Jupiter, further expanding your heart. Reach out to your mother, your sister, or any family member you know would be delighted to hear your voice. At 4:49 PM EST, the Moon forms a sextile aspect to Uranus. You may receive a surprise communication from a loved one.
FIND PLEASURE IN DOMESTICITY
Sunday, February 13, 2022
Today brings us to another day with the Moon in Cancer. This suggests a day of domestic concerns and activities. You will be happiest if you simply stay home and nurture yourself and your loved ones.
Think about the variety of domestic activities, they are not made of the same cloth. When the Moon is in Cancer we don’t want to clean, organize, or tidy our home, that is the domain of the Virgo Moon. When the Moon is in Cancer we don’t want to make things pretty or put flowers on the bedside table, that is the domain of the Libra Moon. With the Cancer Moon, we want to cuddle on the couch with a loved one or a beloved pet. Preparing a wonderful meal or baking a pie will feed your soul, but cleaning up afterward is not part of the pleasure.
At 2:16 PM EST, the Moon forms a flowing trine aspect to Neptune. You may choose an afternoon nap. Go ahead. You can always justify rest on a Sunday afternoon.
In these weekly reports, I explore the major aspects formed by transit between the planets. I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and give rise to fleeting moods. The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions. The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.
The Changing Moon this Week
The Moon sets the emotional tone as she moves through the Zodiac day-to-day. It takes approximately 28 days to traverse the entire Zodiac. Learning to work with this rhythm will help you align with and relax into an easier flow with the Universe. The luminous Moon spends approximately 2 ½ days in each sign before she moves on to the next.
Monday: With the Moon, in Taurus, you are motivated by a desire for serenity, security, and comfort. You can anticipate a burst of energy mid-afternoon, do something exciting and just a wee bit risky.
Tuesday: Another day with the Moon in steadfast stable Taurus. At 8:50 AM EST, we reach the First Quarter Square of the Lunar Cycle that began at the New Moon on February 1st. Consider the metaphorical seed of intention that you planted at that time. You will want to take action today to encourage the growth of that intention.
Wednesday: The Moon enters Gemini this morning where it will remain for several days. Expect curiosity and quick-paced conversations to punctuate the day. Gathering and sharing information, perspectives, and ideas will support pleasure and personal connections.
Thursday: On the surface, today looks like a simple day with the Moon passing through Gemini. However, there are more powerful dynamics underground that will come to the surface today or tomorrow. Read the full blog for more information.

Saturday: With the Moon now in Cancer, it is time to release any restlessness and difficulties held over from the week. Plan to hunker down and spend the weekend with loved ones close to home.
