Venus & Eris square Pluto - Under Pressure

Mercury Retrograde continues to stir up the Pisces ocean this week.  In other news, the Feminine is being challenged in a big way at present.  Lilith conjunct Chiron in Aries (the Warrior), Venus Conjunct Eris in Aries, opposing Juno in Libra and squaring Pluto in Capricorn (a Feminine sign where a big story has been playing out for a long time). This all amounts to a lot of pressure focussed on feminine energy and issues.

Toxic masculinity is also getting a comeuppance as the angry, outcast, embattled and frustrated feminine rises from the ashes and prepares to regenerate.

New Moon in Pisces - Ride the Wave

The New Moon in Pisces occurs at 10:32 EST on February 23rd, 2020.  All New Moons encourage us to conceive of something new, specifically in relation to the house that the particular New Moon is sitting in for us.  The New Beginning will be flavoured by the energy of the sign the Moon is in and any conversations that are happening between the Moon, Sun and any other planets.

This Moon is echoing the Quote by Henry David Thoreau, "Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.  Live the life you've imagined."

Leo Full Moon - Closer to the Heart

The Full Moon at 20 degrees Leo on February 9th is encouraging us to get closer to the heart.  Leo is our heart's desires, our individual self-expression, our joy and our creative life force.  The Sun in Aquarius opposite the moon, is shining light on the needs of the collective, the group, collaborations and our vision for the future.  

Something comes to light at this full moon that draws our attention to these themes and how they may be out of balance in our lives. The houses that Leo and Aquarius occupy for us will clue us in to the life themes being most impacted by this lunation.

Pisces Season, Mercury Retrograde & Mars enters Capricorn - Under Water Navigation

On February 16, Mars moves into the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn while Mercury stations retrograde in the Mutable Water sign of Pisces.  Mars in Capricorn will revitalize whatever overhaul has been going on in the Capricorn area of our charts for many moons.  Mars in Capricorn wants to get things done.  But, the Sun is shining a light on all things Pisces, and the Mercury Retrograde wants us to hold off a minute, take time to get all the information, re-imagine, review, reflect, re-invent, in relation to the life  themes that occupy the Pisces area of our chart. 

If Mars heeds the advice of Mercury Retrograde in Pisces, he can get back to business newly revitalized and ready to take inspired action.

Lilith & Chiron in Aries - Empowerment & Healing of the Feminine

Although Neptune and Venus in Pisces squaring Mars in Sagittarius certainly has our attention this week, there is something else of importance brewing in the cosmos.  Black Moon Lilith - the energy of the raw and real feminine has moved into Aries to join Chiron and eventually Eris.  Lilith was Adam's first wife who refused to bow down and submit.  As a result, she was kicked out of the Garden of Eden.

Lilith in Aries combined with Chiron, draws our attention to the wounding and healing around issues of female empowerment, autonomy, sexual exploitation, power, reproductive rights, and equality.  Lilith in Aries wrote the book on, "My body, my choice."
In other news, this weekend marks the festival Imbolc, when we celebrate the first stirrings of new life, and gradual return of the light.
