enters Aquarius today, and by tomorrow, Mercury emerges from its shadow after a
retrograde period in January, as it will have covered the same ground in direct
motion as it did while retrograde. A project or plan may symbolically emerge
from a slowdown or delay. Mercury will transit Aquarius until March 5. When
Mercury is in Aquarius, we are hungry for knowledge and open to new and original
ideas. We begin to think outside of the box, more progressively, and more
objectively. Our communication and thought patterns are spontaneous, somewhat
fragmented, and liberal. This is a time when inventive thinking is at a peak.
Mars forms a sextile with Jupiter today, and we are enthusiastic about taking
action to make changes and improvements. Decisive action comes naturally. We are
more courageous and energetic, which we might direct toward advancing our goals. We want
to branch out and take on more challenges. While a spirit of friendly
competition prevails, a Mercury-Saturn semi-square is also active today, and
there can be some tendency to trip over details and communicate in faulty or
critical ways. The Moon leaves Aries at 6:37 AM EST, when it enters Taurus.

an Aries with a Leo Ascendant, read the forecast for both
Aries and Leo.
