On this day before a Solar Eclipse, dear Aries, ideas can fill your head, but so can too much information, so watch for overdoing things. Some of your ideas will take and others may not, but don’t worry about the difference between the two just yet since it’s not yet time. Stay open to the idea that you need more intellectual stimulation in your life, and look for ways to improve your communications. However, watch for taking on so many things that you feel overwhelmed. The Moon is Balsamic today, making it a good time for reflection or end a bad habit. New interests and directions are on the horizon, and it’s better to concentrate on reviewing, reflecting, and letting go as you clear the path. Things seem to wind down during this lunar phase, so don’t strain yourself.
Fresh energy is with you today for your studies, projects, or mental interests, dear Taurus. You especially enjoy the challenges of learning something new with the Moon in your sign and harmonizing with Mars in your communications sector. Others are likely to appreciate your perspective. The desire to act on your feelings is more potent than usual, and you can be especially persuasive or creative. It seems easier than usual to find the ideal channels for expressing your emotions. The Moon later heads into your solar second house for a stay of over two days, drawing your attention to how you’re managing your resources. Your material affairs and comforts can be in strong focus. There is some risk that you take on more than you can handle. Taking care of valuables or prized possessions can be enjoyable, however, and you might soon remind yourself that what you have is enough for you right now.
You continue to look within for guidance today, dear Gemini, and you benefit from some personal time and space. Some form of operating behind the scenes is appropriate, particularly if you’re moving towards the close of a project. However, later today, the Moon moves into your sign, awakening a desire for reciprocation or acknowledgment. This Moon transit brings on an awareness of emotions you’ve set aside in recent days, and it can feel like an urgent discovery! For over two days, it’s a time of the lunar month for some healthy self-focus, particularly related to emotions and nurture. Try not to go over the top with all of this as the Moon forms a square to Jupiter, or you’ll wonder why you pushed yourself so far. Remind yourself of your usual limits. Taking on more is not necessarily better, particularly in these days before a Solar Eclipse occurs in your sign.
Networking efforts can bring rewards now, dear Cancer, but perhaps the most appealing opportunity of the day is to enjoy and pace yourself. Others can be more accommodating and agreeable, and even with Mercury still retrograde, communication comes relatively easily. Of course, there are times when standing out is beneficial, but today is more about letting things flow around you and enjoying others as your peers. It’s a good time to try to let go of some of the pressures to perform. You can feel connected emotionally and spiritually with people in your life, but later today, the Moon moves into your soul sector, and some level of retreat makes sense. Activities that help you recuperate and renew your emotional energy are most appropriate. The potential problem of the day involves overdoing or overthinking things. Kept in check, you’ll be in good shape for laying low. If you find it hard to turn your brain off long enough to rest and relax, then it’s time to make changes.
The Moon at the top of your solar chart continues to sensitize you to your performance, dear Leo. However, you feel that you’re in good shape, and you’re happy to pace yourself. A solid sense of your value helps you now. Letting your actions speak for you is especially appropriate with the Moon in harmony with Mars helping where regular communication may fail. However, the Moon heads into your social sector later today, and your priorities shift. It’s easier to put your ambitions on the back burner for a bit. As tempted as you might be by new ventures and ideas or connections with friends and networking, aim to take things easy. You seek some relief from recent life pressures, but consider that social outlets may heat up in their own way today. Spending some extra time on personal happiness goals can be rewarding.
You tend to attract the right experiences or people for you today, dear Virgo. You value those who have been solid and reliable in your life–people who come through for you. Still, you might inspire somebody with an idea or a unique perspective on a matter. Today’s transits are strong for feeling at ease with others and teaching, learning, and sharing. Even so, as the day advances, the Moon moves to the top of your solar chart, and you’re more inclined to check in with your goals, responsibilities, and ambitions. Career or overview life path objectives can be an emotional focal point. Watch for the tendency to want to bite off more than you can chew, but aim to stretch your mind to consider different opportunities or paths.
Today can be strong for new insights into your inner workings, dear Libra, as well as for research related to work or health. You’re in observer mode, and you can see many things that you might overlook on a more active day. Nevertheless, you’re making connections, and you might take action on private matters. A lot is going on under the hood right now, and it’s a fine time to take steps to heal and replenish your energy. The Moon heads into your spirit sector later today, pulling you out of your head. You’d rather throw yourself into something than think about doing it. Your eagerness can prompt you to take on more than you can handle, but if you can keep this tendency in check, you’re in great shape for considering options you haven’t yet entertained or felt possible. Exploring and discovering new topics can be mental refreshment for you.
Cooperative energy is with you today for one-on-one relationships and interactions, dear Scorpio. Even with Mercury retrograde and words possibly failing us, there is good energy for understanding through actions. Later today, the Moon moves into your solar eighth house, where it will transit for a little over two days. Devoting your attention to something can be most satisfying to you with this influence. You can be somewhat protective of your plans and feelings, and it could be a sign that you need more time with them. While you may not want to express your feelings directly, it’s possible you can find creative ways to do so. Although your attachments can be complicated in spots, it’s a good time for stretching your mind and learning more about yourself and the important people in your life. You may need to wind down in the days before the Solar Eclipse on the 10th.
Mercury completes its transit of your resources sector, dear Sagittarius, and now enters your communications sector. As the planet of communications, it feels right at home there! This cycle that lasts until March 15th helps you make sharper assessments and gain some mental clarity. It encourages reaching out, making connections, picking up new interests and skills, and sharing your ideas. Learning, teaching, studying, and conversations flow naturally now. Later today, Mercury forms a hard aspect to Mars, which can generate some tension if you give in to pressures to rush something through. Impatience can be a problem, particularly with ideas. Simplifying or focusing on one thing at a time may help. Watch for hasty moves and jumping too quickly to conclusions. Slowing down just a little can ultimately get you where you want to go, if not faster, more smoothly.
Mercury moves out of your sign and into your resources sector today, dear Capricorn, where it will stay until March 15th. This influence is beneficial for your practical affairs–you’re bringing more intelligence and attention to matters related to finances, valuables, possessions, and security or comfort. These very things can also be strongly on your mind in the weeks ahead! You can pick up useful, practical information, mainly because this is the kind of information you seek most. Later today, Mercury and Mars form a challenging square aspect, and it’s best not to rush conclusions or statements. It’s far easy to say something you later regret under this influence. It may not be easy to relax temporarily, but tension might push you to take care of something you’ve let go. Taking something as an intellectual challenge may be your best bet. Moderation and patience are key, even if they’re difficult to put into practice.
The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart, inclining you to nurture your ambitions today, dear Aquarius. You’re especially aware of your influence and reputation now. Also today, Mercury enters your sign, and until March 15th, you’re finding your voice and making snappier decisions. It’s a self-starting and sometimes restless cycle. You may need to put a little extra effort into making time to relax. Otherwise, it’s a strong period for mental clarity. You prefer to take the lead when it comes to mental or intellectual tasks rather than consult others or collaborate. While Mercury transiting your sign is a mostly helpful influence, it forms a square to Mars today, and you should watch for the tendency to jump the gun. It’s best not to rush now — problems may result from pushing something too quickly. Try not to give in to pressures to say or do something in haste. It’s also possible that family or home matters can conflict with your plans, or people close to you may be annoyed by your attention to other things. There may be a disagreement that requires putting egos aside to resolve.
Mercury begins its transit of your privacy sector today, dear Pisces. Until March 15th, your decision-making skills and thought processes tend to be more intuitive, inward, or solitary. It’s a good cycle for processing recent experiences, as well as for reasoning your way through issues that you’ve left unfinished or pushed to the side. You can arrive at a greater understanding of your life, and you might help others with words of advice and wisdom. You’re looking at the past from a new perspective and paying more attention to your private life. Even so, Mercury forms a challenging aspect to Mars later today, and it can fire you up to take care of a problem area. However, it’s better to avoid rushing words or actions now. Unresolved matters can weigh on your mind, which can distract you or incline you to rush through communications. Tense or rushed speech can, in turn, lead to unnecessary complications or misunderstandings. There might also be competitiveness with others that irritates rather than motivates. Try not to put plans into motion because you’re impatient–wait until you’re confident and have time to put more thought into them.
