When Mars changes signs, we feel it. This week may have a rather unstable feeling to it due to Mars moving from Sagittarius to Capricorn on Saturday; we will feel the effects beginning midweek. Mars doesn’t like being in Capricorn because he is so impulsive and action oriented and Capricorn is the most practical sign there is, so don’t be surprised to feel like your tank is only half full or even hovering just above empty until the energy shifts next week.
On Saturday, the New Moon in Pisces brings a sense of magic and mystery. This New Moon is one for plumbing the depths and uncovering what treasures may be ready to see the light of day and be brought to the surface. It’s the last New Moon of winter in the northern hemisphere each year so it holds a potent power in terms of encouraging us to sweep away the tendency to hibernate and come out into the light of day.
Sunday will be a day of frivolity due to the Moon joining Mercury, Venus and Uranus in Aries; this will hold an indication of Spring and warmer weather and longer days to come. It looks to be a great day for gatherings of any kind, spending time outdoors and maybe having a bonfire if weather permits.
This week is still tussling with last week’s events, so it won’t be completely different, but due to some changes of course, it looks to be a more productive week.
