Astro-Notes on February 18, 2017 – Third Quarter Moon

Daily Aspects:
– Sun ingress to Pisces at 3:31 am PST
– Moon ingress to Sagittarius at 10:52 am PST
– Third Quarter Moon at 0:20 Sagittarius/Pisces at 11:33 am PST
– Mercury in Aquarius semi-sextile Pluto in Capricorn
– Jupiter Rx in Libra opposite Eris in Aries

Early this morning at 3:31 am PST did the Sun make ingress to Pisces, ushering in a phase of endings and synthesis, during which we seek to become more ‘whole’ as well as self-aware, while shaping and moulding our self-image according to visions and ideals that appeal to us.
At 10:52 am PST will the Moon enter Sagittarius, which corresponds to a period of heightened optimism and enthusiasm. However, the Moon also engages in a waning square to the Sun, marking the Last Quarter Moon stage in the Aquarius lunation cycle that is accompanied by a ‘crisis in consciousness or perception’.

Therefore, instead of being filled with exuberance and enterprising spirit, we could feel rather disillusioned in regard to ‘acting out our vision’ (keyword of the Sabian Symbol for the Aquarius New Moon), because we might not have all the information yet to be able to proceed with our agenda and as a consequence, have to wait, seeing our plans delayed.
Mercury in Aquarius is leaving a semi-sextile to Pallas in Pisces and approaching another one to Pluto in Capricorn, while Mars in Aries is moving toward a semi-sextile with Pallas. The matter is outside of our control or zone of influence, which means we can only bring things to conclusion once everything comes together. In the meantime, we might as well focus on other things.


Tarot card of the day is the “2 of Pentacles”, which calls for flexibility and indicates movement and change in the natural progress of a project or business. We might have to decide between 2 alternatives and travel beyond the conventional, seeking combination and unification. Some kind of balancing act is signified that requires from us to juggle our various duties, responsibilities and resources.
