Tuesday, FEBRUARY 12
The First Quarter Moon occurs today as the Taurus Moon forms a square to the Sun in Aquarius. There is a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled to take action. Shortly after, we are made aware of how our actions affect those close to us, perhaps through trial and error. Whatever project or initiative we began around the New Moon is now off the ground, and it may face its first obstacles.
Mars approaches alignment with Uranus in Aries, exact very early tomorrow. This is the final such alignment while Uranus is in Aries (Uranus will move on to the sign of Taurus on March 6th). When Mars meets Uranus approximately every two years, we can be filled with a sudden desire to make things happen, and in the sign of Aries, this can’t happen soon enough! It’s a powerful time for ridding ourselves of attachments that have been weighing us down, and for letting change in. We are naturally bold and assertive, willing to experiment, and extremely conscious of a need to act independently. The best way to harness this exciting but erratic energy is to act rather than react, although it can be difficult to know whether our impulses come from genuine desire or if we are rebelling against restrictions. We should watch for rash decisions and impatience now. If we feel confined, this is a time when things come to a head. The fact that this happens while Mars and Uranus are in the final degree of the sign of Aries adds even more urgency to the combination.
The Moon is void from 5:27 PM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a square to the Sun), until the Moon enters Gemini the next day, Wednesday, February 13th, at 4:33 AM EST.
