Weekly Cosmic Tides – Astrology for the 20th – 26th February 2012

Monday 20th February
Moon in Aquarius sextile Venus – New people and new environments help to blow away cobwebs and refresh your thinking. With a sextile to Venus, pleasantries and a smile go a long way to making lasting connections. Give others the opportunity to welcome you into the group. Turn a stranger into a friend.

“To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.” ~ Brandi Snyder

Tuesday 21st February
New Moon in Pisces conjunct Pallas – It’s time to be strong, even if you feel like you’re falling apart. You may feel deluged by problems but you are stronger than you know. Defend yourself and those you love with absolute compassion. You are an essential part of an incomprehensible universe.

Wednesday 22nd February
Moon in Pisces – Sleep is precious. It gives you the chance to dream and to heal. In sleep you re-connect with your soul and give your unconscious mind time to speak. Go to bed early, rest, nap, close you eyes, meditate.

“Dreams are today’s answers to tomorrow’s questions.” ~ Edgar Cayce

Thursday 23rd February
Mercury in Pisces opposite Mars in Virgo. Watch for arguments over who is or isn’t doing what they ‘should‘ be doing. Under this transit it’s easy to accuse and criticise or be the victim of someone else’s misplaced anger. It’s best to put your head down and get on with your work. If necessary – channel your own irritation into something productive and quietly chant ‘this too shall pass’!

Friday 24th February
Sun conjunct Chiron – What is your life mission statement? What are you here to do? The Sun conjunct Chiron puts you on notice that there is a meaning to you being here. Have your confidence levels been knocked? Do what it takes to sooth the wound. You are your own healer.

Saturday 25th February
Sun sextile Jupiter – Embrace joy! Look for laughter. Happiness is within you.

“Everybody laughs the same in every language because laughter is a universal connection.” ~ Yakov Smirnoff

Sunday 26th February
Venus conjunct Eris – This isn’t an easy influence. Sometimes you want to smash it all down or it may feel like someone else is just working against you every step of the way. Breathe. Venus is noting what she will and won’t tolerate but also sees where harmony exists. Focusing on each other’s good points will help relieve conflict.
