The Center for the New Age is pleased to present your Free Weekly Horoscope for February 23 – 29, 2020
New Moon in Aquarius on February 23 is the time to open up to new feelings regarding our understanding of science, technology and these changing times. This New Moon is a good time to begin new social and philanthropic endeavors. Aquarius says: “I Know,” and humankind’s knowledge is always tested: it is through what we do know that we persist constantly to find out what we don’t know. New knowledge adds to our power and this is a good time to learn something new about ourselves and our ever changing world. Knowledge, after all, is power.
Venus is square Jupiter (February 23 – March 5). Our experience of beauty and affection is challenged and tested with the difficulty of attracting or acquiring prosperity. Some might say that the act of appreciating beauty is a form of prosperity in itself. This aspect may create the hardship of our not being able to acknowledge beauty as a form of wealth within itself. It reminds us that something more than love’s blindness is required in order for us to fully realize our riches. Don’t let money matters spoil the beauty of loving affection, but expect the strong possibility that this might well be the case with others.
Mercury sextile Mars (February 26 – March 1) brings out opportunities that can be received, recognized, communicated and acted upon. News or information may lead to the taking of immediate action. Clear communications concerning actions being taken may make this a superb time to seek employment.
Venus square Pluto (February 28 – March 8) is a difficult aspect for many people. It usually involves difficulties such as, loss or death of a loved one, and the obstacles of rejection, slavery and general oppression concerning those aspects of life to which we are undeniably attached and we hold dear. If something of this nature is occurring for you at this time, it is best to recognize that love will triumph in every dimension despite the pain of separation, or the disease and strife of the beloved.
Free Weekly Horoscope for your Sign
Aries: All that was said last week applies even more to this week as a New Moon occurs on February 23 alongside Mercury retrograde, increasing the need for some healing space or quiet time to reconnect with your higher self and receive intuitive promptings for the next part of your divine plan. This is most definitely not the week to rush about or try to do more than usual. If you do, you’re likely to witness the standard Mercury retrograde issues: delays, breakdowns in communications, problems with technology or travel, and a drain on your energy. All of these are signs that you need to slow down and perhaps direct your intention within. You might also benefit from closing a chapter of your life, or at least tying up loose ends, so that you feel more able to move forward when this period is over, unencumbered with things that need to be laid to rest.
Taurus: The New Moon on February 24 alongside Mercury retrograde puts the focus firmly on your social life, friends, groups and your hopes and dreams for the future. This is a good time to make a positive difference in the lives of others, but be prepared to go slow or to tie up loose ends and resolve problems. It might not be a clear run, but you can probably sense whether you’re on the right track and just need to make some adjustments. This is a good time to review the role you’re playing in the world and see if there is more you can do.
Gemini: The New Moon on February 23 joins Mercury retrograde at the top of your chart, putting even more emphasis on your career/vocation and general direction in life. Now is the time to truly consider where you want to be going and to possibly begin a new chapter. It could be that you have to wait a little while to get moving, as certain things need to be put in place, but it will be worth it in the end. Be patient and allow things to gradually develop.
Cancer: While the relationship theme simmers in the background, Mercury’s reverse motion alongside the New Moon brings the matter of meaning to your attention. If life feels like it’s lost some of its meaning, or if you’re not sure what you’re meant to be doing or even what the purpose of life is, consider the following words of psychologist Victor Frank: “The meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour.” The New Moon on February 23 gives you the opportunity to tune in to what currently gives you meaning (which might be different from ten or twenty years ago) and then summon the faith to move in that direction. If you have a wobble this week, that would be perfectly understandable, but the path ahead will become clear if you focus on what feels meaningful to you.
Leo: With a New Moon in your transformation zone on February 23, the heaviness of previous weeks begins to lift and the feeling of new beginnings or a sense of renewal begins to emerge. By pledging to make some changes in an area that has been a source of discomfort, you will begin to gain mastery, and a sense of strength and power will replace any previous feelings of disempowerment. You might need to deal with issues around sex, money, death, or psychology, but this New Moon is a very strong indication that the worst is over and you can now begin to rise like the phoenix from the ashes.
Virgo: Do you need to make some changes in a relationship? It would seem that something from the past has raised its head and is causing matters to be less than ideal. But if you are willing to move on, you can put all of this behind you. The New Moon on February 23 is a wonderful opportunity to start fresh, right wrongs, and forge deeper connections with people who matter to you. Dropping the criticism (for this is the worst Virgo fault) might be the way forward. Instead, practice tolerance, compassion and acceptance, even if this is difficult for you. Allowing others to be who they are and loving them unconditionally is perhaps the goal for you now. Remember that this Mercury retrograde transit favors time out from your normal ways of relating, so couples therapy or vacationing together might be all that’s need to get things back on track.
Libra: The New Moon on February 23 is your opportunity to make changes in your work and daily life. Now is the time to start fresh and embrace a new beginning. Even a small change could be instrumental in moving things forward. It’s also a good idea to become more organized and efficient, so look at what needs to happen to enable your life to flow better. This could be a small change to your routine, such as going to bed an hour earlier to have more time and energy for the next day or removing clutter to feel less crowded. Ultimately, the energies are pushing you to create a simpler existence, so clear commitments from your calendar, reduce your to-do list, or clear clutter. Regardless, the result should be a feeling of spaciousness that makes room in your life to focus on what really matters to you.
Scorpio: Life doesn’t always have to be serious, although it’s easy to forget that these days. The New Moon on February 23 brings you permission to embrace a more carefree attitude. You could find yourself with an opportunity to laugh, take time out of your usual routine and go somewhere fun, or be creative. It might also be that with Mercury retrograding through your fun zone that you need to assess whether you’re living in a spirit of joy. See if you can drop some serious stuff and replace it with things that bring enjoyment. Many of us feel obliged to perform jobs, work, duties and other things that don’t resonate with who we really are. Your task now is to answer the question, “Who am I?” and then work toward creating a life that better reflects your true essence.
Sagittarius: The New Moon on February 23 is a golden opportunity to turn over a new leaf at home. It might be more evident now what the problems are and where areas of weakness or sources of frustration lie, which makes this a good week for making changes. Your primary focus needs to be on repairing, renewing, ad revitalizing, so putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls, removing piles of clutter, or fixing broken or problematic areas is the way to go. Alternatively, it might be that a relationship is in need of your care and attention. The good news is that no matter how difficult things might have been, the New Moon bodes well for positive changes, if you’re willing to move on. In a sense, that is what the current climate is all about: being willing to move on in whatever way feels appropriate. This is the point where you need to acknowledge that the past is gone so you can move forward again.
Capricorn: This is a great time to change your attitude. You can, of course, be totally forgiven for having grumpy moments, given that the heavyweight planets Saturn and Pluto are in your sign, which hardly make for a light and upbeat state of mind. But you also need to be mindful that the planets test you, rather than compel you, and adversity has a tendency to reveal your character. Good questions to ask yourself now are: “Is my character the best it can be, despite the challenges I face?” “Am I grateful for whatever is in my life, good and bad?” See it all as an opportunity to grow and refine your spirit.
Aquarius: The New Moon on February 23 increases the focus on your material world, and it brings the chance to turn over a new leaf. Ask yourself what is tired and in need of change in your material life. It could be that your financial situation would benefit from a change. Or it could relate to something you own or the amount of pleasure and enjoyment that you derive from life, and especially from your money. In combination with Mercury retrograde, this is a really good week to sort things out and in whatever way is appropriate, negotiate a better deal for yourself.
Pisces: With a New Moon in your sign on February 23, this is your chance to start over; begin a new chapter or make a change that will generate a sense of freshness. It could be that things don’t move as quickly as you’d like, so this is less about making headway in your life and more about reviewing, repairing and resolving. Once you’ve fixed everything that needs fixing, you can make swift and effective progress. The time is also ripe to look at yourself and your life to see what needs to change for your long-term good. It might be time to overhaul your appearance or change some other key aspect of your life that will enable you to feel like a new person.
