Astrology for February 28th and Welcome to March 1st on Sunday!
The forces of swift and changing winds are in the air all morning with Moon square Uranus at 8:49 AM PST. Later that morning we'll have Moon Opposite Pluto at 9:53 AM. A road sign could read, "Curves Ahead: Use Caution." Slow down and downshift to low gear and smooth out the territory of your desires and emotions. Seek peace, and avoid arguments; you might say something you can't take back. Moon is Void in Cancer up through Sunday, March 1st at 3:34 AM PST when the moon enters Leo. Saturday night wrap yourself in a cozy space, see a movie, relax in a hot tub or long bath, get/give a massage, try yoga, and all other activities that invoke the inner world. Sunday alights the heart with a renewed vibrancy for action and passion. Creativity will be back on track with a Uranus sextile Mercury at 7:55 AM. Enjoy the day but take into consideration the Mercury opposite Jupiter aspect in the afternoon at 1:15 PM PST. Watch your energy…don't tackle too much but do share your light with others. Welcome to March everyone! Time is flying! Be good to Self.
February 26th and 27th
Yesterday was quite a day. I hope you were able to get a lot done. Today you may feel the pace has settled into an ease of organizational aftermath. Take it step by step as the Moon is Void all day. The morning began with a lovely Moon/Jupiter sextile; a soothing boost of light to help clear morning jitters, dreams, and worries. Keep faith alive! Tomorrow morning, the 27th, the moon moves into emotional Cancer. The early part of the day may be less eventful, however, beware of an afternoon/early evening energy storm with a Mars square Moon. You can tune into more clarity or more confusion depending on how centered you are with the Moon trine Neptune that follows into the evening. Knowing the cosmic weather can make all the difference! Stay sweet!

Highlights of the February 2015 Cosmic Calendar
By Mark Lerner
When a calendar month begins – like the current one – with Mercury in Aquarius still sliding in reverse mode in the zodiac while the Moon, in its own natural abode of Cancer, enters a 28+ hour void uncertainty cycle, it is hard to rev your engines and get plenty of traction on the road of life. Let’s not forget that giant Jupiter went retrograde on December 8 and doesn’t turn direct until April 8. Therefore, Mercury and Jupiter, the traditional ruling planets of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces – key signs of communication and transportation – are presently traveling in counterpoint to the always forward-moving Sun and Moon. Many astrological students center their attention on Mercury’s three annual three-week reversals every year and forget about the many shifts, back and forth, of Jupiter, Saturn, the three outer planets, Chiron, and the four main asteroids. [By the way, Venus will retrograde this year – from July 25 to September 6 – and during its reversal will unite with Jupiter on August 4.]
Despite the peculiar start of February 2015, the enlightening Full Moon arrives on February 3– energizing the 15th degree of Aquarius (Sun) and Leo (Moon). According to the eminent astrologer Dane Rudhyar, the middle degrees of the fixed power signs (Taurus; Leo; Scorpio; Aquarius) are Gates of the Avatar – his way of saying that they hold enormous spirit-soul enhancing power, due to their all being 45-degrees away from the starting point of the four seasons (astrologically 0 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn). And this Full Moon has Jupiter within a few degrees of orb – adding qualities of Providence, Benevolence, and Optimism to this particular solar-lunar crescendo.
Wednesday February 11 finally calls a halt to Mercury’s most recent retrograde cycle in Aquarius. The Messenger of the Gods planet will take a couple of days to really gain any daily speed, and therefore it is important to understand that the more positive themes related to this celestial body don’t simply arrive by the bushel load right on February 11 and 12. By February 25, Mercury will be cruising along at 1 degree per day and during April 6 to 20 Mercury will be traveling at 2 degrees per day. Eventually, this year will see Mercury retrogrades in the two other air signs (Gemini and Libra) from May 18 to June 11, and then September 17 to October 9, thereby rounding out a Grand Triangle in the air element.
Wednesday February 18 is highly unusual as a second Aquarius New Moon arrives just moments before the Sun enters Pisces. However, the combination of a New Moon and the Sun entering another zodiacal sign minutes later can represent a great surge of spiritual force since we are dealing with the shift from the last air sign to the last water sign. And during the following three days, first Mars and then Venus will both leave Pisces for fiery Aries, leading to their conjunction on Saturday night February 21. Anytime Venus and Mars unite, there can be a wide variety of creative, artistic, and romantic fireworks.
Partly because this is a short month, we have the unusual synchronicity in how February ends aligned with how February begins. This month began with a 28+ hour void-of-course Moon cycle in Cancer and it concludes with a 29+ hour void-of-course Moon cycle in Cancer. A lot of astrological students don’t utilize or believe in the void lunar phenomenon, but February 2015 is filled with some very lengthy ones, and especially from February 21 onward. Do some homework and read up on the void Moon so you can work with its erratic favorable nature and avoid its quirky problems.
