Horoscopes for February 23rd to March 2nd

Overview

The March 1st New Moon (or February 28th, depending on your time zone) in transcendent Pisces will be supported by a fortunate trine to Jupiter Rx in Cancer. Jupiter will add a shot of hope to this Moon's new beginnings. Chiron (Wounded Healer) in close proximity to the Moon will blend the energy of healing release and acceptance of awkward/sensitive issues. Mercury direct (communication and information) in Aquarius (February 28th) will help us roll into the New Moon with clarity. "Come to Jesus" talks and quiet realizations will be uplifting. However, just as we move forward, Mars (action and assertiveness) will station retrograde in Libra on March 1st. This suggests that aggression and new initiatives will be inappropriate/unproductive. On March 2nd, Saturn (rules and authority) stations retrograde in Scorpio, calling for a deeper look at current responsibilities and major goals. All in all, this will be a time for inner progress and contemplation, while outer progress and actions are paused.

Aries:

The New Moon and Chiron (in your hidden sector) trines Jupiter Rx in your domestic sector, suggesting that support for a hidden sensitivity will be close to home (family, a partner). The secret you're worried about is probably not such a big deal.  Mercury goes direct in your social sector, indicating progress with friends, groups, public activities or getting your ideas across to the crowd. Mars Rx (your ruler) in your partnership sector can trigger delays in relationship progress, and Saturn Rx in your sector of shared resources can put the brakes on intimacy. Shared finances (debts, taxes, loans, your partner's finances) may also need to be reworked, as limits on available resources demand attention.

Mars Rx in your sector of self-expression can put a damper on a new romance, personal goal or creative project, as your actions/confidence seem to be out of step with others.  Saturn Rx in your sector of routine can see you adjusting work schedules, tasks or re-aligning yourself to physical/energetic limits. Certain realties/duties must be acknowledged before you move ahead. Also, it may be time to go back over work that you thought was completed.
