The Moon in Aquarius makes a now-familiar set of aspects to Uranus, Jupiter and Saturn throughout the day. From Aquarius, the Moon relates favorably to all three of the planets, finding a place for Uranus’ radical approach, Jupiter’s mellow optimism, and Saturn’s rigor and discipline.

Friday begins with Venus in Pisces’ square to Saturn in Sagittarius. This combination calls for an emotional adjustment to the current demands for organization and patience in your life right now. It may deny joys, or merely delay them.
Meanwhile, the Moon joins the Sun invisibly in the afternoon sky, marking the moment of the New Moon. This New Moon in Aquarius asks us to take a step back from the whirl of events, and from that distance contemplate where things are and where they might be headed. It is worth noting that, in contradiction to the previous Full Moon, this New Moon is not configured to any of the big planetary drama afoot.
After nightfall, Mars enters Aries. Aries is one of the most potent places for the red planet. Mars burns hot in Aries, setting short fuses alight, igniting lust for accomplishment. In Aries, Mars is great for getting things done, but not so good for social harmony. Mars will be in Aries until March 9th, when it mosies into Taurus.

Thursday begins with the Moon in Capricorn’s square to the Jupiter-Uranus opposition, echoing once again the dynamics of the Full Moon. You may be pulled to compare and contrast the virtues of sudden change vs. gradual improvement, as well as to analyze what obstacles prevent you from improvement of one sort or another.
Shortly thereafter, the Moon moves on to a sextile with Venus at the end of Pisces. This usually pleasant aspect may be compromised by Venus’ applying square to Saturn, and thus may require patience in addition to offering pleasure.
From Venus, the Moon moves toward a sextile with Mars. The day thus receives a small measure of vigor, which increases as evening falls. The rowdiness of the Moon-Mars aspect fades as the night deepens, and Luna enters abstract Aquarius in preparation for tomorrow’s New Moon.

Wednesday begins with the Moon in Capricorn’s sextile to Neptune in Pisces, which softens and moistens the ambiance a bit. Nonetheless, Wednesday’s primary aspect is the Moon’s conjunction with Mercury in Capricorn. This conjunction brings a surfeit of pragmatic mental energy down into play, catalyzing careful reflections, practical planning and thoughtful adjustments.
The evening sees the Moon drift past Mercury and into conjunction with Pluto. The Moon-Pluto conjunction casts a shadow over the night, pulling the mind to brood on secrets and inevitabilities.

Tuesday begins with an inflammatory square between the Moon in Sagittarius and Mars in Pisces, seeding the first portion of the day with irritations.
Later, the Moon leaves Sagittarius for Capricorn, a business-like, if somewhat uncomfortable, position. Beneath the pragmatic crust of the Capricorn Moon, though, Venus completes a conjunction with the tiny planetoid Chiron. The scars on your heart might itch a bit, and you may reflect on love lost or denied. Though not necessarily what one might call a pleasant aspect, Venus’ conjunction to Chiron can help facilitate therapies of various sorts.
