The confrontational Aries moon squares off with Venus, in its post-retrograde zone in Capricorn, and action-oriented Mars, also in Capricorn, and harmonizes with Saturn in Aquarius.
A planetary square is a fraught astrological aspect that urges us to take action. Since the Aries moon heightens the characteristics of Venus and Mars, we can expect some arguments and frustrations in our relationships. Venus and Mars want to ramp things up and elevate partnerships, but Saturn in Aquarius is holding us back and restricting emotions.
This combination of planets and astrological aspects can bring out deep-seated sentiments that have been pushed down for years. You may not be able to suppress your emotions, which means they’ll come out in the open, but this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It can bring catharsis and personal growth that can help you evolve and change if you allow yourself to. The only way to deal with these energies is to think before expressing yourself. Meditate on what your heart truly wants and then take action toward attaining it.
There is a palpable sense of destiny in the air today as we push for change without automatically throwing away the past. Idealism is muted in favor of pragmatism but the push for change is broad, thoughtful, and comprehensive. Of course, in this active environment, there may be a significant amount of uncertainty as well as some challenges to our relationships with others. Negotiations may be intense but there is little inclination or ability to simply stand back or walk away. In some way or another, the rubber hits the road today and there is clearly no going back. There are revelations, insights, and new information that are beginning to percolate into our consciousness and once we have seen them, they cannot be unseen.

2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
2/8/2022 FIRST QUARTER MOON IN TAURUS: Your safety depends on the need for stability, which is not easy to satisfy now. You have to learn to accept change as part of your life. The basic problem is finding your own self-respect in order to ensure that you do not mistakenly seek it in material things. When you accept yourself for who you are, it will become easier for you to find peace and tranquility in the outside world.
2/16/2022 FULL MOON IN LEO: You feel safe in moments when you can impress others and get praise and admiration. Yet, when you get into the spotlight, you may find yourself at a loss. Maybe you should admit your fear of criticism and your inability to accept criticism. It is very important to accept feedback and use it for improvement.
2/23/2022 LAST QUARTER MOON IN SCORPIO: Moon in Scorpio creates the need to delve into your feelings as deep as possible. You desire meaningful emotional exchanges now more than at any other time even if it is not easy and you are forced to change many things. Shallow relationships do not satisfy you, because they are not purifying enough.
Have you been allowing your imagination to run amok and dream up a nightmare that seems to have come true? Fear not, for whatever dreaming you did in the past can change today as you dream anew.
Wake up from the perception that everything is wrong. Lizard Spirit asks you to open your eyes and consciously dream a better dream. What would it look like to already have what you desire and be the one you wish to be? How might it feel to work toward co-creating this new dream as a reality in the world of the senses, drawing it out of the world of dreams and building it in the world of form?
Trust in your ability to dream anew. Honor it today.
