February 26th brings us a New Moon eclipse in Pisces (8 degrees). It conjoins Neptune (at 11 degrees) so you'd think this new beginning would be all dreamy and peaceful. But no...
...we also have a conjunction between Mars and Uranus in Aries (at 21 degrees) on the same day. Actions (Mars) unite with liberation (Uranus) for pedal-to-the-floor acceleration. And an opposition between Mars and Jupiter Rx in Libra is building, exact on February 27th (22 degrees). Jupiter will inflame whatever Mars/Uranus has going on. Events can range from an explosion (literal or metaphorical) to an outburst of temper, or a break for freedom. This can be your lucky break, or painful break. Whatever happens, the push to start fresh and start NOW will be enhanced by the eclipse. Don't look back.
Pisces dissolves, but also expands. It is primarily a sign of letting go, and this is accentuated by the Sun's conjunction to the South Node on February 21st. On February 22nd, Mars squares Pluto in Capricorn (18 degrees), triggering an ominous rumble as buried motivations come to the surface, and are acted out. The past arrives on your doorstep. Keep your eyes on these dates, because they are precursors to the eclipse.
Mars acts out Pluto's deeper impulses. Sun/South Node lights up what was, and what's ready to be released. After the release/purging, there's something more to develop, and that is illustrated by the eclipse. And Mars/Uranus' electric start. This will be about one door swinging shut, and another one opening immediately, with a bang.
The Sun/Moon conjunction to Neptune suggests limitless new possibilities, and divinely inspired faith. There's magic here -a reminder that there is much more beyond what's in front of you. Mars/Uranus/Jupiter adds excitement, surprise and disruption. But first, you'll have to let go of something. Depending on the degree of your attachment, the process could feel like a sudden fracture, as your ties with the past are shattered. Or, it could be a dizzying rush of freedom. Maybe both, with a mix of pain and exhilaration. Pisces/Neptune vagueness and Mars/Uranus unpredictability suggest that much of what goes down will be unplanned. The rules will be broken and the boundaries erased. There may be an intervention from something incomprehensible, big and unnerving.
But the timing will be perfect.
