Tuesday begins with the Sun in Aquarius and the Moon in Gemini in a happy trine, starting the day off with a mutually supportive confluence between the lights. There is a general harmony here between yin and yang, energy and intent. Mid-day, however, the Moon hits a square with Neptune, opening the way to distraction and daydream. Things sharpen back up during the afternoon, though, as the Moon chases an opposition with Mars in Sagittarius, which demands an archer’s focus.
All the while, Mercury in Pisces and Uranus in Taurus sextile, seeding the day with little practical ideas and innovations.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The Moon moves through Gemini today. With Luna in a Mercury-ruled sign, the quality of the day’s motion is telling as to the how Mercury’s very recent move into Pisces will affect things. Though not retrograde for another two weeks, Mercury is impeded by being in the sign of its Fall, and thus Mercury-related issues, such as scheduling and communication, may start an indicative slide.
Though the Moon makes no exact aspects today, Venus and Saturn do complete a sextile, giving the day a slightly melancholic quality and turning thoughts toward the importance of boundaries within relationships.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The Moon spends the day configured to both hard and soft powers. On one hand is a trine to ease-producing Venus in Pisces, and on the other, a pair of trines to daunting Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Meet your obligations, but at a leisurely pace.
Night begins on a slightly grumpy Saturnian note, but becomes progressively lighter and chattier, courtesy of the Moon’s aspect with Mercury and subsequent move into jibber-jabbing Gemini.
Mercury, too, makes an ingress tonight, slipping into Pisces during the wee hours. Mercury’s time in Pisces opens the mind to vast oceans of awareness– the big picture. However, this encompassing perspective makes it easy to overlook important details. Mercury is considered to have a difficult time in the watery sign, as it is more predisposed to poetry than precision. In practice, Mercury’s time in Pisces can be quite helpful when directed toward imaginative works, although pursuits requiring diligence and rigor may suffer
Mercury has an extended scuba trip through Pisces planned this year. Mercury will swim with the Fishes from now until March 4th and then again from March 16th until April 10th. There is, of course, a retrograde thrown in, which spans the time between February 16th and March 9th.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The steady Taurus Moon plods across Saturday, bearing matters consistently along. A half-Moon heralds sunset, and our entrance into the busy 2nd quarter of the lunar cycle. The night hours are supported nicely by an earthy trine between the Moon in Taurus and Jupiter in Capricorn, which helps set the stage for some pleasantries. Venus, still exalted and quite capable of lubricating social dynamics, completes a sextile to Pluto tonight, which pulls the aesthetic in a gothic direction and facilitates the sharing of secrets.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Friday begins with a chastened Moon having just escaped a gloomy square with Pluto and
Saturn. Yet morning holds Luna’s sextile with swift Mercury, providing a little boost of
intellective energy which lasts until nearly sun-down, when the Moon enters Taurus.
The Moon’s entrance into the bovine sign pulls the energy earthward. Yet there are rumblings beneath the plain. The Moon spends much of the night conjunct volatile Uranus in Taurus, which quick shifts of both of plan and mood.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
