The Sun crosses the Pisces South Node on February 21st, setting the stage for the Pisces eclipse. A spotlight shines on the past, making it immediate.
February 22nd brings a square between Mars in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. Mars acts out Pluto’s deeper motivations, and the square creates tension. This is a forceful aspect, as instinct takes over and power is unbalanced. What’s acted out in the present will be based on the past.
February 25th sees Mercury’s Pisces ingress. Information and communication will be plugged into something universal. Logic will be replaced by intuition, and this ingress builds on the Sun/South Node conjunction. Mercury rules the Virgo North Node. You may end up piercing the illusions/secrets/dreams of the past, so you can find clarity for the future.
Watch for everything to fall into place on the February 26th New Moon Pisces eclipse. The eclipse, along with a Mars/Uranus conjunction (opposing Jupiter Rx) will fuse all the influences over the past few days in a bright flash.

A background issue, secret or gut feeling will gain prominence, and the eclipse will bring it out into the open. Combined with Mars/Uranus in your sign opposing Jupiter Rx, new beginnings will hit unexpectedly. What you ignored or missed will become glaringly obvious. This could be the moment when it all clicks and you see what you’re getting -maybe more than you ever hoped for. Or, something/someone could exit abruptly. Relationship changes are a possibility, with complete reversals and extreme reactions.
Mars/Pluto can stir up repressed anger or unconscious reactions. There’s something that can no longer be denied, and you may react before you’re fully aware of what you’re doing. Too, this could be your big push for progress or success.
Sun/South Node and Mercury into your social sector alerts you to developments involving friends, group activities or you public image. A conversation or piece of news from the past could get the ball rolling, and the eclipse will push things over the edge.

An abrupt change in your routine or daily activities could be featured.
Mars/Pluto suggests public outbursts, power struggles or arguments with friends/groups.

Sun/South Node and Mercury into your career sector can revive discussions with management about your future, your authority or your professional image. The eclipse will build on that, with new job developments (or a new job). Too, there could be a flash of insight about what you really want to do.

Sun/South Node and Mercury into your sector of opportunities can open your eyes to areas of exploration, learning or expansion that are ripe for further development. The eclipse adds to the excitement with a flash of possibility. New developments around travel, education, legal matters or publishing can come out of nowhere, but at the same time, you’ll feel like this is the perfect opportunity for you. There may be an abrupt career change, or alteration of your future trajectory - perhaps you hadn’t planned on this at all. Sometimes a shock is what’s needed to push you in a direction you wouldn’t normally consider. For some, a business launch or job search could pay off in unexpected ways.

It may be time to accept that there's something you can't have, or something you need to confront.

As uncomfortable as this will feel, know that you’re moving ahead, which is always the right direction.
Mars/Pluto ups the intensity, anger or drive for control. A new attraction could have a profound impact, or issues in an existing relationship could heat up and unearth buried conflict/passion. A power struggle on the most intimate level could result. Financial matters can be all or nothing, as you’re pushed to address a debt, shortfall, or opportunity to invest.

The eclipse will accelerate things, introducing you to a new, potential partner, closing the door on a past relationship, or pushing an existing relationship into the next stage. Events will happen quickly, and someone else may initiate the action. Whether you’re meeting someone new, or a partnership is progressing/ending, know that the flow of events is happening naturally. You can’t fix or direct things. In some cases, an unexpected challenge or competition will hit, triggering your sharpest, savviest strategies. Move away from what/who makes you feel drained, anxious, or less-than.
Mars/Pluto can trigger power struggles, competition or confrontations with another person. You may be pushed, and will have to decide if you’re going to push back. Tension or arguments in a romantic relationship may be rooted in family history, or ongoing domestic transformations.
Sun/south Node and Mercury into your sector of routine gets you looking at the nuts and bolts of work, daily tasks or heath. Reasons to get organized will be expanded on during the eclipse. You may have to let go of something, or leave a situation, to improve your health. Someone else may be the catalyst who triggers an overhaul of your routine.

Sun/South Node and Mercury into your sector of self-expression can bring creative inspiration, flirtatious contacts or good news. Your confidence to go public can be boosted, or you could reap the rewards of your creative efforts. The eclipse will hi-light this. A new romance, creative launch, performance or celebration are possibilities, but there is also some risk associated. You may feel like throwing yourself completely into a new situation. There’s certainly potential for success, but use some caution where your health and physical activity is involved. Remember your limits.
Mars/Pluto can see you pushing for more attention, attraction, indulgence or success. You could be motivated to pursue someone, or risk it all (financially or emotionally) on an instinctive desire.

Sun/South Node and Mercury into your domestic sector hi-light family discussions, documents or information from the past. The eclipse builds on this, with an ending and new beginning.

However, the pace of events could move more quickly than anticipated. A break with the past could be more of a *snap* and your actions will be powered by your drive for self-expression. This eclipse could signal a chapter that’s all about you, and what you need to be truly happy.

Too, your decision about a domestic situation could accelerate the pace, due to a now-or-never feeling.
Mars/Pluto can trigger verbal confrontations, a verbal smackdown, or abrupt declaration. You’ll be feeling feisty, and your words will reflect this. But words/ideas will be based on hidden issues that you’re not fully conscious of. Pay attention to what pushes your buttons, because the root cause will go beyond what you see you on the surface.
Sun/South Node and Mercury into your sector of personal resources gets you thinking about what you really need, financially and emotionally.

Mars/Pluto prepares the groundwork for the upcoming eclipse with public efforts, or unusually potent actions. You may be challenged, or you could be the one doing the challenging.

Money, self-esteem and personal values are areas where you may feel pushed, pressured or threatened. Too, these could be areas where you experience a surge of ambition.
Sun/South Node and Mercury into your sign are the harbingers of the eclipse. Watch for a messenger, in the guise of specific person, idea or piece of information.

What was on brew with Mars/Pluto will erupt, and the clarity, fresh purpose or surge of initiative can open up a whole new world. There’s opportunity and disruption - your security may be rocked, and finances could change dramatically. At the same time, your eyes could be opened to a new source of security, or a new way to feel better about yourself.
