for February 24, 2013 — March 2, 2013
The Full Moon occurs in Virgo on February 25. Virgo puts the focus on all of life’s mundane necessities purging and purifying our surroundings with sound resourcefulness and simple logic. This serves as a good time to celebrate health and to enjoy the pure goodness of fresh vitamin enriched foods. Virgo rules the intestines of the body and represents the process of elimination. Focus on eliminating the used resources in your lives and make room for new healing focuses and new growth. Celebrate your existing health and do something good for your body on the Full Virgo Moon.
Venus, the planet of magnetism, attraction and love will be placing our desires and attention on Pisces related talents and practices over the next month. Music, poetry, the arts, psychic phenomena, spiritual and religious practices will all be endearing attractions and lively pursuits February 25 through March 21st. Venus is the feminine planet of love and Pisces is an extremely feminine, dreamy and spiritual expression being animated by the love force of Venus. Love endeavors will emphasize passivity, tenderness, sensitivity and the need for a gentle approach towards love’s expression.
Mercury in Pisces is conjunct Mars in Pisces this week. This conjunction brings the forces of communication (Mercury) together with the forces of action (Mars). This is not a very good time to bluff! This aspect brings words and deeds together, and in this case, the greatest action occurs with communication and is empowered in the expression of the message. This is an excellent time to get others motivated through speech, but it is likely that this speech will have to be modified, and eventually repeated as Mercury tends to throw curve balls during communications while it is retrograde. This may be a time of angry words being spoken. Also, with the Mercury retrograde factor, it is likely that properties will be rigorously disputed while Mercury and Mars are conjunct. Some might say the best way to win an argument is to begin by being right; taking this approach during this time is likely to win you favors but not friendship. Take caution with your words. If they are intended to incite a battle, this would a terrific time to put that message out there!
Venus in Pisces conjuncts Neptune in Pisces on Thursday. These two very feminine planets are aligned as a higher and lower octave of each other, creating a very fluid and open expression of femininity for the next ten days. Venus represents love, magnetism and attraction while Neptune represents spiritual love and the melding of spiritual energies. Beauty and art (Venus) are linked with spirituality and belief (Neptune). This conjunction can be utilized to reach a higher vibration of feminine spiritual love, making it an ideal time to connect with one’s own guardian angel to bring about greater wisdom.

Aries: With more than half the zodiac all squashed into your zone of soul and spirit, the universe has a definite message for you: slow right down and connect with your source. For any Aries people who try to maintain their normal busy pace of life with a focus on external and worldly matters, this could be a difficult week, especially with Mercury being retrograde too. Tiredness, exhaustion and poor health could be symptoms along with feelings of just not wanting to be bothered. It will probably feel rather difficult to function in the normal everyday world, so don’t ignore your inner pangs for solitude, rest and spiritual pursuits. You can avoid the potential difficulties within the current planetary alignments by turning your focus inward, toward the divine. The universe wants you to realize that the power is within you and you can create anything you wish but first you must make the time to connect with that inner source of divine power, so disconnect the phone, light the candles and journey within to find your inner peace.
Taurus: With more than half the zodiac including a retrograde Mercury all squeezed together in your zone of future and friendships, these are two themes likely to be making themselves felt. You may be feeling a great drive to move your life forward and to be a greater part of the world. Maybe you want to participate more whether that’s socially or globally and maybe you’re feeling the desire to make more of a difference, to do your bit and help others. Perhaps you want to instigate your ideas and plans but for some reason you can’t seem to move forward. Maybe you feel you can’t trust or rely on someone, making it difficult to move your dreams to the next stage. The Full Moon on February 25 may initially bring the tension and frustration to a boiling point, but what follows will be clarity and a smoother path. You can help this process by letting go of the need to be in control and being less rigid. While it’s necessary to have a vision and some goals, it’s also important to be flexible in your approach to getting there. Be like the river that flows around boulders. By going with the flow you will reach your destination in a far more relaxed state than if you keep trying to resist what is.
Gemini: As more than half the zodiac gathers in your zone of career and purpose while the Full Moon opposes it all, you may feel the pressures of your work-life balance. You may feel guilty for not being able to devote more time to your family, or you may feel the need to do more in the outside world. It can be very difficult to get the balance right between home and work, but now you are being given that opportunity and the solution once again resides with your intuition. What do you feel in your heart is the right thing to do? What do you want deep in your soul? Another way of accessing the answers to what you really want to do with your life is to imagine that today is your last day on this planet. Ask the question, "What did I not get to be, do or have? Who was the person I didn’t get to become? What did I miss out on? Your first answers will point the way forward and make your decision making process so much easier.
Cancer: Metaphorically speaking, you need to remove yourself from an enclosed space and climb to a higher vantage point. When you change your perception of something, magical changes can occur so seek experiences that will open up new dimensions of reality, expand your current beliefs and refuse to limit yourself. Try to broaden your horizons through new and unfamiliar experiences. This is one time in your life when you can be and do so much more than you’ve previously experienced. Don’t ignore any impulses to break out of your confines and move beyond anything or anyone who says, "You can’t." Actually, you can, and the time has never been better to start turning a big idea into reality.
Leo: Aside from joint finances and wealth, the eighth house of an astrological chart is known as the house of sex and death. Modern astrologers also see it as the house of psychology and transformation. With more than half the zodiac all gathering for a big meeting in this very private zone, it’s highly likely that a matter of a deeply personal or intimate nature is ripe for change and transformation. This, though, is a journey that you may feel you need to take on your own, since it can be very difficult to share your most vulnerable fears and feelings with people who don’t understand or who aren’t equipped to deal with such deep issues.
Virgo: It seems that other people are demanding much of your energy right now, leaving you with very little for yourself and the things you need to do. However, there is a reason why more than half the zodiac is gathering in your relationships zone, and it seems that you have something to learn or something important to experience. Perhaps the lesson is to wake up to the truth about how you relate or to the truth of a particular relationship. This could be a very enlightening week with you experiencing a few "aha!" moments. Don’t be afraid to give or to commit. Equally, don’t kid yourself if something isn’t as it should be. You have a tremendous opportunity now to heal the whole area of relationships and your personal life. All that’s required is courage, forgiveness, compassion of self or others, and a willingness to communicate and move on.
Libra: With more than half the zodiac lining up in your zone of health and work, these are likely to be areas of significance. Since this is also the area of your daily life, it’s fair to assume that you will be pretty busy right now, and this could be where the health factor comes in. If you are too busy or feel like you’ve got too much to do, you could end up feeling frustrated or running yourself ragged –both of which can result in a lack of well being. Unless you have no choice but to keep going, then try to pace yourself and make time in the day for centering activities such as yoga, a walk in nature, or a short meditation. The higher purpose of all these planets in this area is to help you manifest a greater degree of consciousness in your everyday life, regardless of whatever trials you may be experiencing. This may mean being more present in your work or daily tasks. It may mean developing spiritually and bringing this into your work or day-to-day activities. It may mean starting your day with a meditation or a few yoga stretches. It may mean a purer diet and some gentle exercise. Or it may mean setting aside some time for reflection or writing your feelings in a journal. The healing of self and others should be your focus now as you work toward being of service in a pure and inspirational a way as possible.
Scorpio: With more than half the zodiac in your house of fun, it’s probably timely to focus on what you enjoy doing. This could range from the little things, such as making time for hobbies and recreation, to the bigger theme of whether you spend your days generally doing what you love. Check in with yourself to see if you’re speaking or living your truth or if you have unwittingly allowed life or other people to cloud your vision of what really matters to you. This could be a very revealing week as you take a big step closer to living a more authentic life, but it may be that before you can take that step you first have to let go of something. Trust your intuition to guide you accordingly, and remember that so long as you are speaking your truth you will find yourself on the right path.
Sagittarius: We start out life full of hope, zest and curiosity. Then by the time we reach middle age we have accumulated our fair share of disappointment, loss, sorrow and hurt, much of which remains locked away in our emotional basement. We become heavier, more cynical and seem to develop more ailments or have increasingly less energy. If only we could periodically empty our emotional dustbins, we would resume our natural, curious, energetic selves. With no less than six planets taking up residence in your emotional basement, you have the opportunity for a really good clear out. If the tears need to flow, let them. If you decide you can’t stand your clutter any more, then now is the perfect time to feng shui your home, paying particular attention to your basement, the area that represents your unconscious junk. If you need to heal a painful memory or deal with a sad or tricky family situation, remind yourself that once you have cleared all this stuff, you will be on your path to wellness. Healing your home, your family and your emotional self needs to be your priority this week.
Capricorn: This is likely to be a busy and rather stimulating week for you so ideally you should make sure you have some spaces in your day for quiet thought. It is also extremely likely that events won’t go as planned, so you need to be prepared to go with the flow whenever there’s a frustrating change or hiccup. If it seems that you just can’t make progress, then you probably need to turn within and determine the message for the delay or confusion. Maybe there’s something else you’re meant to be doing instead. Maybe you need to be more fluid and flexible in your approach, or maybe you need to learn patience. This is also a time when it will become easier to see how your thoughts and beliefs are shaping your reality, so maybe you could seek to isolate any thinking that isn’t doing you any favors. Are you perhaps harboring a belief that was formed in your past from your parents or through some negative or painful event? You don’t need to keep repeating a negative pattern. Now is the ideal time to break it. Whether it’s a past life pattern or something you learned in childhood, it’s time to set yourself free so that you live more creatively and step into your true power.
Aquarius: With half the zodiac lined up in your money zone, it’s extremely likely that you will find your thoughts and energies being directed toward your material life, from the work that you do to the money that you have (or don’t have). Since the Full Moon is triggering this large grouping of planets around February 25, you could find yourself having to deal with a stressful issue. This may involve having to let go. It may involve having to admit defeat, or it may involve the need for forgiveness, but just because you may have to cut your losses in some area, that doesn’t mean that you have to give up. There’s still plenty you can do, and your motivation and enthusiasm will kick in again once you can be at peace with whatever you have to let go of. Remind yourself that what’s for you won’t go by you and that whatever leaves your life probably does so for good reason. Perhaps the time has come to ask yourself some serious questions about money, work and business and ask yourself whether you are making full use of your talents in the best possible way.
Pisces: With more than half the zodiac lined up in your sign, Pisces is a little top heavy to say the least. This suggests that you have an important job to do, that the universe is expecting big things of you, or that you are about to take on a more prominent position in life. Certainly the spotlight is on you, so whether you are seeking to be successful in your professional life or having more of an impact in your relationships, this is the week to go for it! The Full Moon in your opposite sign suggests that attention needs to be paid to your personal life and it may be that another is needy of your attention while you simply want to get on and do all the things you want to do. Try to find a balance, but at the same time remember the importance of speaking your truth. If something doesn’t feel right, then don’t do it. You have nothing to lose by focusing on integrity, since the universe is certainly on your side and will assist you in getting to where you need to be, with or without the help of those you once thought you could count on.
