Daily Overview of the Planets, Stars & Sky for February 15th
Partial Solar Eclipse
A partial Solar Eclipse occurs today at 4:06 PM EST in the sign of Aquarius. This eclipse prompts turning over a new leaf regarding friendship, fellowship, group activities, social pursuits, group projects, trying something new, humanitarian efforts, or joining a group.
Occurring today and tied nicely into the eclipse energy (which effectively extends the influence of these aspects) are lovely Mercury-Uranus and Venus-Saturn sextiles. A sextile between Mercury and Uranus this morning opens our minds to new, progressive ideas. Our intuition is strong, and insights seem to come from “out of the blue.” Original, creative ideas are easy to come by. We can take advantage of our ability to see things in a new light by breathing life into old projects or solving problems in new, creative ways. Varying our usual routine may be especially rewarding.
With Venus sextile Saturn later today, however, affections stabilize and mature. A new sense of realism in existing partnerships might come now. Small advances can be made in business and in partnerships. We are drawn to productive pastimes, and we are a little more sensible when it comes to seeking out pleasure and comfort. A new sense of responsibility might emerge with friendships. We give one another space, yet we’re also showing our commitment. This is an excellent time to connect with others and to build trust. The Moon enters Pisces at 9:42 PM EST.
The Moon is void from 4:06 PM EST, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a conjunction to the Sun), until the Moon enters Pisces at 9:42 PM EST.
