In the Stars February 25-March 4, 2018...shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon in Vi
Water, water everywhere! This week six planets are in mutable water sign Pisces: Sun, Neptune, Mercury, Venus, Chiron, and Juno—a lot of water symbolism, magnified by Jupiter, the planet of expansion in fixed water Scorpio. Surely we will get much needed rain this week. We may be overrun with sensitivity and deep feelings; emotions may run high. The Moon is Full in Virgo on Thursday, March 1, calling us to purify and simplify. Neptune conjuncts the Sun, uplifting us with inspiration and charity. Allow yourself to receive insights and inspiration. Express kindness and compassion.
Sunday is another glorious day with numerous benefic aspects to the Moon in Cancer. This is a good day for planting flowers in the garden that perhaps you cleaned up yesterday. With the Sun in an opportunistic sextile to Saturn, a lot can be accomplished. In the light of the Cancer Moon, you will want to enjoy some comfort food. Cook for the week ahead.
Monday is an energetic, expansive, bold day with both benefic and challenging aspects. Emotions run strong. We can be fueled to get things accomplished and make powerful changes. Get meetings and shopping done before 1:51 p.m. PST when the Moon goes void of course rom 1:51 p.m. to 8:42 p.m.
We are pulled toward what we love and value, and we have the power to attract what we want in our lives on Tuesday. Open your heart, and express your love and gratitude for those around you. Relationships can be transformed.
Wednesday is a playful, exuberant day. However, we may be prone to say too much, or to say something biting or hurtful. Think twice before speaking, and discern what to say, and what to keep to yourself. There is a long Moon void of course period from 3:13 p.m. to 9:57 p.m. PST when the Moon moves into Virgo.
The Moon is Full on Thursday, March 1. This Full Moon in Virgo, opposite the Sun in Pisces, calls for purification and simplification. The Virgo Moon helps us ground the mass of ethereal Pisces energy (Sun , Neptune, Mercury, Venus, Chiron, and Juno in Pisces). Love abounds as a result of a sweet Venus-Jupiter trine. The Moon is in Virgo Friday and Saturday, the time of the month for cleaning, clearing, and organizing. Work comes before play early in the day (Moon-trine-Saturn). Later in the day, the Moon-Neptune opposition calls for uncorking the wine, and relaxing into a dreamy evening.
Friday is an industrious day when much can be accomplished. The cosmic activity buzzes with both benefic and challenging aspects. Lean in, and give this day the works until 3:50 p.m. PST, when the Moon goes void of course. Then it is time to relax into a sweet, yet practical evening of conversation and pleasure.
Saturday and Sunday are graced with the harmony and beauty of a Libra Moon. Some testy situations, especially in relationship, may appear as a result of a Saturn-Moon square, but the Libra Moon’s love of fairness will help us work things out.
Neptune conjuncts the Sun on Sunday, an uplifting energy for creating, or doing charitable work. Venus, Mercury, and Chiron are joined together, symbolizing beautiful speech. Kind words can heal. The evening may end with a surprise!

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
Void-of-Course Moon times for the month ahead (one lunar cycle) are:
