Best evening for ritual: February 24 (Tuesday)
Theme: Pssions in Perspective
The Mars-Venus sextile from the last full Moon remains in force, and is now augmented by both Mercury and Jupiter, in close conjunction with Venus in Aquarius. The Sun and Moon are in Pisces now, so we are viewing this bonfire through a dark watery veil.
Although desires remain intense and focused, their relevance and endpoint may not be as clear as they were two weeks ago. It’s time to return to the source and find a place for those passions in the larger picture of the cosmos and our role in it.
This may be an unsettling, confusing time, so ask the Moon for guidance through divination, and open yourself to receive the answer without preconditions.
Questions for this Moon:
What is the larger meaning in this moment’s activities?
What is the source of the life that moves me?
What remains unchanged?
What is it like to step outside of time?
Best evening for ritual: February 8 (Sunday)
Theme: Light my fire
This is an intense Moon, where our larger ideals become transformed into very personal, very immediate, and very active realities.
There is a strong sextile between Mars in Aquarius and Venus in Pisces, which could manifest as a strong surge of sexual energy, perhaps focused on someone sharing your vision or ideas, or as a sudden, intense attraction to a new activity or undertaking. Jupiter and the Sun are also in Aquarius, amplifying both the force and the relevance of the upwelling desires.
With the Moon in Leo, there can be a need to receive attention before one can return it. The energy of this Moon can be put to good use if you can find an open channel for reciprocal generosity and reciprocal appreciation. If you focus on a relationship where the flow is one-way, you’ll likely be burned in this heat.
Affirmations for this Moon:
I revel in love and attraction.
I energize my desires.
A bright new light shines in my vision.
I am filled with living flame.
