This week starts off with a bang! February 13th brings warrior planet Mars and explosive Uranus together, both in the sign of fiery Aries. When these two planets unite, expect sparks to fly. Impulsive decisions and sparky sentiments will create exciting energy. The last time these two planets connected, was nearly two years ago on February 27th, 2017. These two planets align at the anaretic degree of 29 Aries, which will bring unexpected endings to situations and partnerships. Be prepared for the unexpected on the 13th, as it’s certainly an unpredictable day!
Mars enters earthy Taurus on the 14th, making Valentine’s Day extra sensual. Mars in Taurus will bring practicality to all matters, allowing us all to achieve our goals through hard work. Action planet Mars will take a passive stance on matters in Taurus, forcing us to make love not war until March 31st.
The 17th adds romance and lofty visions, as Venus, who is currently transiting in pragmatic Capricorn, softly touches sensitive Neptune, who is in emotional Pisces. This transit brings artistic visions, spirituality, and desires to a high, as both planets tenderly caress each other.
The last day of Aquarius Season brings much planetary action our way. First, the Aquarius Sun and Mars connect on February 18th, heightening passions. Followed by tender Venus and austere Saturn link up in sensible Capricorn, limiting our expressions of love, money, and self-esteem. Healing asteroid Chiron reenters Aries on the 18th, taking us back to April 17th, 2018, when Chiron first entered Aries. Chiron, known as the “wounded healer, who could not ironically heal himself,” takes on an assertive energy in Aries, forcing us to put our needs first, above others until April 14th, 2027.
The 19th welcomes Pisces Season! As the Sun swims into Pisces, our imaginations and emphatic feelings will take flight, encouraging us to express ourselves sensitively and lovingly. Mercury and illusive Neptune link up, heightening our imaginations. Be forewarned, Mercury and Neptune can both be tricksters, disallowing us to see situations and truths clearly. Don’t overpromise or take others for their word on the 19th. Right after Mercury aligns with Neptune, Saturn anchors down the dreamy energy, allowing us to manifest our desires. Mercury enters its pre retrograde zone on the 19th. Pay attention to the story that starts today, as it will be our Mercury Retrograde story (Mercury Retrograde officially starts March 5th). February 19th also brings a Full Moon. The Supermoon, occurring in Virgo, brings divine wisdom our way. We may be encouraged to embrace our romantic side and mend fences with others under this luminary, as the Supermoon will allow us to feel compassion and selflessness within relationships.
March 21-April 19
The 13th brings a once in a lifetime aspect (these two planets last connected almost two years ago, however, not at this sensitive degree), when action planet Mars and “Great Awakener” Uranus link up with your Sun 29 degrees. Known as an anaretic degree, the 29th degree of a planet or sign can bring fated endings to projects, situations, and relationships. The 13th promises to bring uncontrollable explosive change to matters, which may not be bad, as long as you embrace growth. Valentine’s Day flips the energy, bringing security your way, when your planetary ruler, Mars enters your second house of esteem, allowing you to feel more balanced. Healing asteroid Chiron realigns with your Sun on the 18th, right before the Supermoon on the 19th, bringing a surge of emotional energy your way, as you purge out things that need to be exterminated from your life. Although it may seem challenging to let go, you will feel free and let loose from the restrictive changes that hold you back by week’s end.
April 20-May 20
The 13th brings hidden fears out to play, making you feel as though you do not know who to trust. As Mars and Uranus link up in the clandestine sector of your chart, you are given the chance to squash your anxieties by talking things out with your closest friends. Valentine’s Day brings your power back, when Mars connects with your Sun, allowing you to take charge of your emotions and kick those who do not serve your highest interest to the curb, even if this entails being tougher than usual on the 18th. The Supermoon on February 19th reconnects you to your visions, bringing hope and promise to a chaotic week. Your friends will be a pivotal form of support on the 19th, enabling you to heal your broken heart with their kind words and unconditional love. This week serves to heal. Put up a barrier to shield yourself from negative energy and implement much needed self-care, like a rose filled hot bubble bath on Valentine’s Day to melt away stresses.
May 21-June 21
When fiery Mars and erratic Uranus connect in your house of hopes and friendships on the 13th, two things happen: your dreams are able to manifest into reality, and your friendships become testy. You will be able to see who you can rely on and who you cannot, who is taking you for granted and who aids your ideals and visions. Valentine’s Day offers reprieve from the stresses of the 13th, as Mars sneaks into your house of intuition, allowing you to cut out those who you feel are causing you frustrations. The 18th brings an opportunity to heal relationships, as Chiron reenters your house of friendships, allowing you to seek forgiveness and apologize for your wrongdoing. Your planetary ruler, Mercury, and altruistic Neptune link up in the healing sign of Pisces on the 19th, pushing you to mend fences under the Supermoon. While the week starts with big blow-ups amongst your peers, it ends with a deeper understanding and connection between you and your friends.
June 22-July 22
Your professional life will take some unexpected turns on the 13th, when Mars and Uranus blow up the career sector of your chart, bringing unique professional opportunities your way. The 14th pushes you to use your finely tuned networking skills, which will serve to elevate your status, due to Mars’s charismatic charm. The 18th allows you to define loyal partnerships, as loving Venus and responsible Saturn connect in your house of relationships, helping you align with those who will heighten your social status. The downside to this transit, may leave you feeling a tad isolated and restricted, as your recent workhorse tendencies have left you feeling more lonesome than ever. You will desire more TLC and amorous pleasure from partnerships. The lesson to be learned this week, is to seek balance within all areas of life, in order to achieve greater success in relationships. The Supermoon on the 19th, helps to connect you with like minded people, who offer you reprieve from daily stresses and a spiritual center, as well as offering you company and solace.
July 23-August 22
The 13th pushes you to seek initiative in implementing dreams. The first step in achieving your goals is to experiment with your visions. Also, stop selling yourself short. Even if things seem bleak, remember, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel which will lead to your aspirations and success. The following day, Mars runs into the career sector of your chart, allowing you to reach new limits and manifest your goals, offering you the determination and faith to believe in yourself. The Sun shifts into the powerhouse sector of your chart on the 19th, allowing you to reach higher goals and plateaus to achieve greater opportunities. The Supermoon on the 19th helps you overcome any obstacles that stand in your way externally and internally, inevitably ridding you of doubt and fear. Shoot for the stars this week, Leo! Always believe in yourself! As long as your inner faith is high, you will be able to open up endless possibilities in your life.

As Mercury and Neptune align in your house of partnerships, the urge to transcend and connect with your beau is strong. Just be forewarned that you may be overly optimistic about your relationship, due to Neptune’s illusive energy, forcing you to see your partner through rose-colored glasses.
