Mercury reenters Aquarius today, taking us back to the beginning of the new year when the planet of communication first moved into the air sign. Although it’s hard for us to do sometimes, we have to start looking at the bigger scope of matters. Don’t get too caught up in the minutiae of things and relationships. Keep an open mind to gain a broader perspective. This will help you avoid making snap judgments.
Pluto in Capricorn galvanizes the nodes of destiny on the Taurus-Scorpio axis, so it’s important to engage in sharpening your instincts. Your intuition can help you find and uncover truths that have been hidden for some time. By doing this, you can gain a deeper and better understanding of matters, including relationships.
Another side to this transit is sociable banter. A friendly debate within your social circle could leave you eager for more, but before you go full throttle into causing more drama just for fun, think about what you’re trying to prove. Listen to what others are saying before reacting.
Today’s Leo Moon begins to signal the intensity of Wednesday’s Leo Full Moon (8:56 AM PST 27° Leo/Aquarius). Our ego and desire to please may be even more on the line than yesterday. The challenge is to maintain our courage in the face of skepticism or the recognition that we need to make adjustments. Pallas has arrived in Aries, encouraging creative solutions and a fearless sense of discovery. Nonetheless, there is intense pressure to maintain ‘practicality’ and discard anything too controversial or too far out of the box. Mercury arrives in Aquarius this afternoon which encourages us to talk through our ideas with others, offering the collaborative advantage that we will need to increase our productivity around the coming Full Moon.

2022 LUNAR CALENDAR
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.
What are you saying to yourself? What message are you repeating? Is it something that makes you feel good about yourself and reminds you of your strengths and potential?
Parrots mimic the sounds around them, and when Parrot Spirit appears, it is time to be more mindful of your self-talk and its qualities. What do you say to others? Are you repeating what you truly believe?
Remembering to speak with light and love can become a habit. Be generous with compliments and thanks, affirming all that is good so that your loving, healing words will be heard throughout the jungle, cutting through the noise and inspiring others.
Listen for the words that remind you of all the strength, abundance, and joy in your life and in the world around you, and then repeat them, affirming what is real, true, and nurturing to the soul.
The universe will reflect back to you the story you tell. Words matter, so choose ones that lift you up and inspire others to remember that beauty surrounds us.
