What happens when expansion and opportunity tussles with transformative power? Jupiter squares Pluto, that's what. This energetic event is exact on Feb. 25th, the final of a series of three (the last two configurations were July 24th and August 2nd in 2010). This can be a time of breaking through constraints both self-imposed as well as those experienced outwardly. Courage in the face of change is important.
Assertive and action oriented Mars swims into the watery, intuitive, and sometimes confusing realm of Pisces. Mars/Pisces is practiced at the art of passive aggression. The arts, music, healing, sacrifice and the oceans are highlighted.
Handle what is on your plate while the moon wanes and builds to new once again on March 4th in Pisces.
