Pisces Season, Your Astrocast 2/15-2/21
Blessings mystics and seekers!
We finish up our last few days of Aquarius season this week with a hard aspect between Saturn and Uranus hitting on Wednesday, giving us the last little oomf before we enter the sensitive and empathetic waters of Pisces come Thursday.
Mercury stations direct on the 20th after having been retrograde since January 30th. This retrograde cycle seemed particularly hard for a lot of people. Mental and emotional stability seemed to be tested, and high anxiety seemed to be a common theme for a lot of people. The end of winter tends to be an especially hard time when it comes to seasonal depression for a lot of people.
It is often said that the day Mercury stations is the day that the most is likely to get a little messy, so simply put, we are not in the clear yet! With Venus and Mars also making a hard aspect on the 19th, a frequency we will feel for a few days, we need to be extremely mindful with how we are communicating in our relationships with others.
This may be a hard week overall. We could feel a lot of frustrated and tense energy, and we may feel overly sensitive around others once Pisces season is in full effect. With the first quarter Moon in Gemini on Friday, we benefit from setting intentions around being open to new ways to perceive challenges. This is a good time to reflect on how we communicate with others.

With our Moon in Aries starting out the week, making harmonious aspects to Mercury, Jupiter, and Venus, we could feel optimistic about the future, and motivated to take action when it comes to things we are passionate about. This is a great day for working on anything that is important to us on a personal level, especially if it involves helping others.

Moon enters Taurus 7:12 pm
The Moon enters Taurus in the evening hours, which is an extremely positive energy for doing things that give us a sense of nourishment in the material realm. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, meaning it does well in this sign. I personally enjoy cooking and spending time in nature when the Moon is here. This is one of my favorite energies to tune into. Find ways to get grounded that are positive for your physical and emotional health.

Moon square Mercury retrograde in Aquarius 6:32 pm
Moon square Jupiter in Aquarius 11:51 pm
Saturn makes a hard aspect to Uranus today which could have unexpected circumstances having to do with people we work with. This is not a favorable transit when it comes to join finances, tax related issues, or financial partnership dynamics. With Mercury still retrograde for the next couple days, we may need to hold off on moving forward when it comes to any business or financial plans, especially if it involves others.

Moon enters Gemini 8:04 am
First Quarter Moon in Gemini 10:47 am
Venus in Aquarius square Mars in Taurus 3:04 pm
Moon trine Saturn in Aquarius 11:15 pm
We have a first quarter Moon in Gemini today which allows for us to reflect on the way we relate to our perceptions on an emotional level. We do well to set intentions towards releasing any anxieties we may be creating that do not help us see our circumstances clearly.
With Venus and Mars making a hard aspect to each other today, we could feel reactive in our relationships with others. This is a positive time to try and see how we can be open to seeing things from the opposite perspective. Which may be hard, but it empowers us to see outside of our own filters we create for ourselves.
Moon in Gemini
Moon trine Mercury retrograde in Aquarius 6:20 am
Moon trine Jupiter in Aquarius 1:46 pm
Mercury stations direct in Aquarius 4:52 pm
Ceres enters Aries 9:23 pm
Mercury stations direct in Aquarius today, and will not station retrograde again until the end of May. It is typically said that Mercury is in its most trickster archetype on the days that it is stationing. Don’t expect things to go back to normal quite yet.
Ceres, our planetoid that shares a similar archetypal energy as the Moon, enters the cardinal fire sign of Aries today. Look to where Aries is in your birth chart, and this will be an area where a lot of focus on self care and personal nurturing will be taking place.
Moon in Gemini
Moon square Neptune in Pisces 12:10 am
Moon void of course trine Venus in Aquarius 10:39 am
Moon inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn 11:45 am
Moon enters Cancer 7:53 pm
Our Moon in Gemini for the first half of the day could have us feeling social and communicative. If we are not using this energy to be productive, we could find ourselves prone to anxiety and worry over things that may not require that much attention. Be mindful today with how you are absorbing information, whether it be things you are listening to, watching, or reading.
With our Moon entering Cancer in the evening hours, we do well blocking out some personal self care time. This is a great night to take a relaxing and soothing bath with candles and relaxing music.
