Weekly Astrology & Human Design Forecast
February 25 – March 3, 2019
A sort of quiet characterizes this week as most of the planets have already made contacts to one another in the preceding two weeks. That doesn’t mean that there are not opportunities or challenges this week, but rather we experience the continuation or solution of issues that came up earlier.
The Moon this week moves through Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn and Aquarius highlighting the part of the Zodiac we think of as relationships we have with the outer world.
Don’t forget that we are in the shadow of Mercury retrograde, so don’t be surprised or upset if things seem to take longer to accomplish right now, or if there are reversals and re-do’s in your life. You can help yourself tremendously if you slow down and take your time doing things.
There are a few big news type events, which I will detail further into this post –
- Venus moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius, while in a square (challenge) with Uranus in Aries.
- The Sun in Pisces sextiles Mars in Taurus
- The Sun & Moon square one another in their monthly dance that brings us a “Crisis in Consciousness.”
The Human Design week takes us into interesting territory as well. The Sun moves into the Gate 37- Harmony, which is about creating positive Family & Community Alchemy, Friendships and Equality. The Earth at Gate 40- Aloneness, which challenges us as individuals to love our “aloneness” but not to the exclusion of community. There is so much for us to learn from these two gates that link the Solar Plexus to the Will Center: force vs. will, equality and balance, work vs. relaxation. I could do an entire post or workshop just on the ramifications of the evolution going on in these two gates.
Let’s take a look at the day by day this week:
Monday, February 25, 2019
We begin the work week with the Moon void-of-course in Scorpio, meaning it won’t be until later in the day where the energy picks up and we can see results. Don’t beat yourself up trying to force things to get done, you will just end up frustrated or upset. Rather, wait until later in the day (after 1:20 pm PT/4:20 pm ET) to complete tasks from earlier in the day. When the Void is over, the Moon will be in Sagittarius and our attitude and outlook get a boost.

The Moon is in Sagittarius all day today adding a dose of emotional optimism to the day. This is a good thing, as the contacts the Moon makes today are challenges to both the Sun and Neptune.
Moon square Sun – This is what we call the time in the Moon cycle of “crisis in consciousness.” In order to move forward with our New Moon intentions, we must deal with the internal dialogue, beliefs, or patterns that are preventing us from moving forward. Only then will we see a new pattern emerging and establishing itself in our lives.
Moon square Neptune – You may be more sensitive today to other people’s moods, to the environment, and to the sights and sounds of daily life. You may also be in a more dreamy state of mind, and that makes this a bad day to make big decisions. Hold on until tomorrow, when the energy shifts to do anything of importance.

The Moon is still in Sagittarius today, and we’re still feeling buoyed by optimism and a strong faith that everything is going to turn out well. Added to that, today’s Sun sextile Mars, gives us energy, stamina and a positive attitude to do what is necessary to move forward.
Sun sextile Mars – The Sun is in creative & imaginative Pisces, while the planet Mars is in deliberate, “get-her-done” Taurus. Together these two planets energetically push us to Manifest & Create and to do it according to a plan of action – yet leaving some wiggle room for creative insights! We are also more self-assertive under a transit such as this, so there is a small warning to remember to be a team player and not insist on having your own way in all things. Pisces is mutable (changeable) and Taurus is fixed – so we have to be able to work with both types of energy today.
Moon in Sagittarius conjunct Jupiter – The Moon conjunct Jupiter adds to our optimistic attitude today, but can cause us to overdo just about everything. So take steps to do things in moderation, and proportional to what is possible for you on an energetic level – meaning your personal energy, finances, time, and physical energy and stamina.

While we slept, the Moon moved into serious and business-like Capricorn. This is a day filled with the potential to get things done, and to be quite task-oriented about it. Make your lists and check off items as you’re done and by the end of the day you will feel quite accomplished. The Moon is also sextile the Sun today, so there is smoothness in your relationships and opportunities might arise today from unexpected places. Be open to receive.

Happy March Everyone! You know they say that if March comes in like a lion, it goes out like a lamb…or at least that’s weather lore about the beginning of this month. I wonder if things are the same in the astrological landscape because March does come in as a bit of a lion for us this year.
Venus square Uranus – Venus, at the end of her transit in Capricorn, finds herself tangled up in a challenging square to Uranus today. Venus being Venus, things aren’t all bad … more like interesting than challenging really. When Venus and Uranus come together this way there is experimentation, flirting, and excitement. Sometimes though, there can be triggers to conflict and fighting. The trick is to not make mountains out of molehills. Keep perspective with all your relationships.
Also – since Venus rules money, watch impulse buying! Make sure that if you are buying something big, that it has real value to you, and that it isn’t just a momentary whim!
Venus ingress Aquarius – I just used a new astrological term for you – Ingress – an ingress is just a fancy way of saying that a planet moved into a new sign. Venus in this case, moves from Capricorn into Aquarius today and thus changes the interactions in our relationships, how we view our personal worth, and what we value.
While in Capricorn, Venus was wearing her business garb, but in Aquarius she is much more dressed down, funky and much more interested in friendly dynamics. However, Aquarius can be aloof at times and come across as emotionally detached. We will want to make sure to be kind, open, honest and transparent with everyone in our lives right now. If you’re not feeling the emotional connection to someone in the moment, don’t force yourself to be something you’re not. Instead, value and honor each other for your differences, as that builds the unique tapestry of the world.

Today the Moon transitions from Capricorn and into Aquarius midday moving us into more friendly and sociable territory. For the most part, the energy of the day is good for getting together with friends or family and having fun. Later in the day, the Moon meets up with Venus in early Aquarius, and here we have another warning about spending money more cautiously – especially if you are on a budget! Whether it is impulse buying or overindulging, you could be tempted to overdo any number of things – spending money, eating or drinking too much, or even physical exertion. Just keep everything proportional to what is available to you energetically, and you will be fine!

Moon square Mars – Today you want to watch out for emotional irritability and irritation. While this is not a good day to repress anger or upset, it is not a good day to explode outward at others either. Instead, engage in positive ways of expressing yourself – exercise, writing in a journal, hiking, or whatever it is that eases that frustration you feel. You may also be on the receiving end of someone else’s anger or upset today. Be ready to walk away or count to 10 before you react. It will save you from creating a huge response to something that was just a fleeting irritation.
That’s it for the Astrology for the week ahead. I wish you all a stellar week!
