This week begins with a new moon in dreamy Pisces on the 20th. Though the mutable water sign is known for being chill and unbothered, this week is anything but slow or stagnant. The new moon gives us a chance to set intentions and reset, but we have to do it quickly. Time speeds up thanks to love planet Venus moving into excitable Aries on the same day.
Flashes of insight come on the 21st as communication planet Mercury squares off with innovative Uranus. This aspect—which is found in the birth chart of those known for their brilliant and sometimes controversial ideas, like Y.A. author Judy Blume and musician Carole King—could influence a change in schedule, pace or style. As the moon waxes into its crescent phase on the 22nd, things pick up even more as Mercury connects with excitable Mars increasing focus and energy. After the 22nd, there are no other aspects until March 2nd so gather momentum early in the week so you can float into the weekend with some exciting new projects.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that sign too will provide further insight.)
