Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, gives her love forecast, writing: “The Sun spends its first full day in the zodiac sign of Pisces, where Venus is exalted and love is unconditional. A Quarter Moon is like a tap on the shoulder to wake you up and start thinking about what needs to be done. Crisis makes us do things that we would not do without motivation, and when Venus speaks to Mars on Friday we are forced to acknowledge certain realities.”
Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “Today’s Quarter Moon in the sign of Gemini is an opportunity to release whatever might be holding us back. We may have a mental image of how things should be when there may a better option. Dropping our expectations can pave the way for a better outcome.”
Astrologer Lynn Hayes of Astrodynamics examines the effects of Venus in Aquarius square Mars in Taurus. Hayes writes: “Today…Venus is in Aquarius where we do tend to be more detached and prefer interactions that are reliably sensible, but Venus squares Mars today (90 degree aspect) which pits our own needs and interests (Mars) against those of a harmonious and comfortable alliance with others (Venus).”
Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explores the implications of Pisces season. Gilchrist writes: “This sign has no boundaries- no definition. This enables the acceptance of almost anything which can encourage unlimited compassion, beauty, dreams and creativity. Pisces is about immersion in what transcends reality – spirituality (not religion) in its purest form and flights of exalted fantasy.” Gilchrist adds: “When distorted, this sign amplifies avoidance of what must be confronted…Some may find Pisces season to be restful and healing if they willingly release what’s already fading or what’s still present but toxic.”
Those born today are born under the Sun sign of Pisces (February 19 – March 20).
