The Changing Moon this week:
The Moon sets the emotional tone as she moves through the Zodiac day-to-day. Learning to work with this rhythm will help you align with and relax into an easier flow with the Universe. Every 2 ½ days she leaves one Sign behind to enter the next.
The week begins with the Moon in hard-working Capricorn where she will remain until she enters Aquarius Tuesday at 8:21 PM EST. While the Moon is in Capricorn you are self-motivated and ambitious. You are inclined toward serious solitary activities. It will be important for you to feel productive so plan your accomplishments with Mercury retrograde in mind.
The Moon enters objective, freedom-seeking Aquarius at 8:21 PM EST on Tuesday where she will remain until early Friday morning.
Wednesday may be a rough day as the Moon makes difficult aspects to both Saturn and Uranus. The social upheaval of our times is on display and you may spend time today calming ruffled feathers.
The Aquarius New Moon that is exact on Thursday at 2:06 PM EST, is a powerful one indeed.

While the Moon is in Aquarius you are able to see beyond your personal self-interest to the larger situation at hand. It is easier to stay objective and not let your emotions trip you up. Your focus is on collective issues rather than personal ones.
The Moon enters Pisces in the wee hours of Friday morning and will remain here until she enters Aries on Sunday morning. While the Moon is in Pisces you are more sensitive than usual and your intuition may be easier to tap into. The quiet sensitive waters of Pisces offer changeability and a powerful connection to Source. Use the time when the Moon is in Pisces for rest and renewal. This is a great time for creating imaginative works of art, meditation, and simply rest.
Plan to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Saturday night into Sunday morning! This is truly the perfect time to express love and connection! If you wait until Sunday night you will be missing the mark!
At 10:54 AM EST, on Sunday the Moon enters Aries, ending the week on a note of assertion and independence. Aries is a cardinal Fire sign that thrives on the ability to take direct, fast, individual action on something personally important to you. Go for a run, get outdoors, use your body in a strong manner.
Please keep in mind that transits to your natal planets can override these more universal ones.
NOSE TO THE GRINDSTONE – Monday, February 8, 2021
The week begins with the Moon in Capricorn. This suggests that your attention is on serious issues of ambition, necessary effort, and integrity.
At 8:47 AM EST the Sun conjuncts Mercury, still in its retrograde state. This indicates that we are at the mid-point of the retrograde. If the retrograde has been challenging it generally eases up at this point. You may feel more mental clarity today as you put the effort of the Capricorn Moon to work on an old project that needs to be wrapped up. This is a good morning to put your proverbial nose to the grindstone.
With the New Moon approaching later this week (Thursday) we are moving into the Dark Phase of the Moon. Slowing down and turning inward over the next few days will serve you well.
LOOK FOR WILD DREAMS TONIGHT – Tuesday, February 9, 2021
The Moon continues through hard-working Capricorn offering another day to tackle personal accomplishments. You are not interested in pursuing trivial issues but will get a great deal done if you spend time alone. Focus on tying up the loose ends of an old project. After all, remember that Mercury is still retrograde. Your best work will be done working alone with a clear focus on your own integrity.
If you notice yourself becoming glum or anxious in the late morning/ early afternoon get out for, even a short walk in nature. Simply being in the natural world will hit the reset button and you will be able to go back to work feeling energized and focused.
At 8:21 PM EST, the Moon enters the objective, freedom-loving sign of Aquarius. Pay attention to your wildly eccentric dreams tonight. They may bring clues that lead you into a future of innovation and humanitarian progress.
_The Capricorn Moon is void-of-course from 12:22 PM EST until she enters Aquarius 8:21 PM EST. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._
PREPARE FOR TOMORROW’S NEW MOON – Wednesday, February 10, 2021
When the Moon entered Aquarius last night, she joined a very large gathering. The Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and Saturn are all gathered in this Fixed Air sign.
With the focus on innovative, unconventional Aquarius it is easier than usual to remain cool as a cucumber in the face of stress. Your focus is on the pervasive humanitarian issues rather than on your individual troubles.
At 7:15 AM EST Mercury squares Mars suggesting the importance of watching your communications carefully. This is a morning when folks, yourself included could easily put your foot in your mouth. Give others the benefit of the doubt and watch your words and tone of voice.
Anticipate a lot of new growth and new beginnings in the area of your life represented by the house that holds Aquarius. This is the house of tomorrow’s New Moon as well.
If you know your rising sign (using Whole Sign Houses). If you do not know your rising sign, your sun sign will give information as well.

BIG LOVE, BIG GROWTH: AQUARIUS NEW MOON – Thursday, February 11, 2021
At 9:59 AM EST Venus conjuncts Jupiter. This is a lovely aspect and begins a cycle of warmth, growth, and love. If something regarding love or money comes your way in the next few days, gently plant a seed for its growth. Keep an eye on it and protect it without taking action on it until Mercury returns to forward motion.
Today’s Aquarius New Moon is at 23degrees Aquarius and occurs at 2:06 PM EST. Mars is challenging this New Moon demanding that we take action to align ourselves with the collective needs we see around us. Humans are suffering terribly in these times. What can you do to help? Incorporate that in the seed you plant in your New Moon ritual this month. If you have never done a New Moon ritual before, do so this evening or even tomorrow. We all need to stand together and envision a future of freedom for all of the earth’s children. See the New Moon ritual below*
AQUARIUS NEW MOON RITUAL
First, write down what you would like to see an increase or develop in the next 2 weeks and extend that to the desired growth of the next 6 months.
The Aquarius New Moon suggests that this is the time to plant a seed of innovation and humanitarian progress. These are qualities that are so very important right now. We all need to step up, cool down, and demand truth and equity for all humans on our fragile planet.
Plant a seed that resonates with your heart and your current understanding.
Have two candles available. Light the first to represent yourself, and where you find yourself right now. Light the second candle as inspiration for the change you want to build during this cycle.
Take a moment to focus as you light each candle.
Imagine drawing objective truth and innovation to you as you physically bring the two candles closer together. Do this each day for two weeks.
At the Virgo Full Moon on February 27th, you will bring the candles together. Acknowledge the inventive, intellectual, understanding you have developed.
Remember that the energy you infuse into this cycle will continue over the next six months and illuminate the Aquarius Full Moon on July 23, 2021.
_The Aquarius Moon is void-of-course from 2:06 PM EST until she enters Pisces at 2:24 AM EST tomorrow morning. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._

A QUIET DAY TO REST – Friday, February 12, 2021
Following yesterday’s dynamic New Moon, you need a rest today. Go for a walk. Even in New England’s stark cold February, there is great beauty in the natural world. The Sun is beginning to develop more warmth as the days are already getting longer. Spring will come. With the Moon in Pisces walking in the beauty of nature will soothe you and bring rest to inner weariness. If it is miserable outside create a sanctuary indoors. Pull the shades and light candles. Rest, meditate, and connect with yourself and others with deep compassion.
The Moon in dreamy Pisces is a mixed blessing. If you woke up thinking you had something to accomplish, let it go. While the Moon is in Pisces we all feel softer, more adaptable, sensitive, and vulnerable than usual. Remember this in your interactions with others. Today is a day for artists, poets, mystics, and those of us who simply need a nap.

CELEBRATE VALENTINE’S DAY EARLY – Saturday, February 13, 2021
Today is a very sweet day. With the Moon still in the sensitive, imaginative sign of Pisces. You feel dreamy and can easily tap into compassion and great love toward others.
In the wee hours of the morning Mercury conjunct Venus suggesting that today is the perfect time to remind someone that you love them. Because Mercury is retrograde this may be someone from your past that still holds a warm spot in your heart. There is no time like the present. Without expectations, speak up and tell them what they have meant to you.
This is a great day to reach out and give a compliment, a gift, or another expression of love. Get in touch with an old friend, let bygones be bygones. They will welcome the renewed connection.
At 9:13 PM EST Mars sextile Neptune heightens your sensitivity and desires. This is a great aspect for a romantic encounter bringing a mystical allure and sensuality to your desires. This is not a night for wild hot sex but for candlelight, intimacy, and a deeply sensual connection.
This couldn’t be more perfect for Valentine’s Day. I know it is a day early but tonight and tomorrow morning are perfect for a celebration of LOVE.
If you are on your own, draw a hot bath, light candles, and romance yourself.
CELEBRATE VALENTINE’S DAY THIS MORNING – Sunday, February 14, 2021
Last night and this morning couldn’t be more perfect for a celebration of Love.
Make sure the alarm is turned off so you can lounge in bed this morning. Start the day with soothing music and the delight of a perfect cup of coffee. Who will bring the breakfast in bed? Continue absorbing the sensitive, expansive, and sensual energy from yesterday.
At 10:54 AM EST, the energy shifts quite dramatically as the Moon enters Aries. You will want to do something physical and challenging. After the sensitivity and softness of the past few days, initiate a shared physical activity or spend the afternoon alone. Engage in an activity that will tire you out by the end of the day. Go skiing, go for a run, or a hike. Engage your body in a way that is a physical challenge.
At 4:39 PM EST, Mercury conjunct Jupiter. This is a very optimistic transit putting you in a positive and expansive frame of mind. With Mercury retrograde, you may notice that you are being called back to a study you left behind in the past. Your mind wants to explore big ideas, world views, ways of expanding and understanding the world. Ask someone from your past what they believe about life after death or other big life questions. Explore the belief system of someone else. Open doors in your thinking.
Make plans for a trip in the future when we can travel safely once again. Don’t put a date on it yet, but begin the imagining.
_The Pisces Moon is void-of-course from 2:29 AM EST until she enters Aries at 10:54 AM EST. This suggests that what occurs during this time will not have much impact._
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. I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its void-of-course, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the void-of-course.
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 cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time”. – D.H. Lawrence
