The waxing Taurus Moon will square the Aquarian Sun at 2:22 pm EST, which marks theFirst Quarter Moon of the Aquarius lunation cycle. This ‘crisis in action’ challenges us to feel content with the ‘inspiration we received’ (Sabian Symbol for the Aquarius New Moon) and thus to overcome those same issues we’ve dealing with time and again. We need to break out of this rut to be able to make progress on all fronts. Mercury will station retrograde at 3:20 degrees of Pisces at 4:43 pm EST, tracing back his steps to 18:09 Aquarius, where he will turn direct on February 28. During this phase will we ‘go down memory lane’ and review plans and ideas we’ve envisioned, remember ‘lost’ or forgotten connections and info we’ve put ‘in the back corner of our mind’ or communication we’ve been delaying.
Tarot card of the day is “The Devil”, a card that comes with the message “I can untie the binds and set myself free”. We may in some way feel controlled by our environment or by our attitude and may therefore have a fear of taking our power back or of having to succumb to unwanted circumstances. It’s a day when we’re overly concerned with material security and when therefore money and material wellbeing are very important to us. The material world is highlighted and with it our darker emotions. A tendency toward negativity and pessimism could keep us addicted and enslaved to whatever issue we give control over us. Therefore, temptations of all kinds will abound.
