Mars Square Venus, Mercury Conjunct Neptune, Full Moon, Venus & Mercury Enter Pisces

Venus and Mars form an Exact Square Aspect from Saturday through Monday, Feb 24-26. Mars is powerful in its own sign Scorpio; Venus is in Aquarius. The 4th House Aspect ("Forward Square") is considered Inimical, putting a lot of pressure on Venus significations. I.e., not a good time for Agreement, Relationship, Harmony, etc. (more details in this video post)
Mercury is Exactly conjunct Neptune on Sunday, Feb 25. The planet of Rational Thinking and Reasonable Discussion suffers while in contact with the planet of Illusion, Confusion, and Deception, making Communications difficult, and Media Reports Inaccurate. On the other hand, it may be good for Creative Thinking.
The Full Moon is on Thursday, March 1, @ 17 deg Leo. This marks the culmination of the lunar energies in the lunar sign Purva Phalguni, noted for Creativity, Enjoyment & Pleasure. The Full Moon will be within a couple of degrees of exact opposition to Neptune, increasing the potential for Parties, Strange Events, and Irrational Behavior.
Venus enters Pisces on Thursday, March 1. The planet of Romance and Sociability is considered Exalted in the sign of Faith and Belief. Pisces is the sign of Sympathetic Emotional Support, therefore social engagements should do well for the next 3 weeks.
Mercury enters Pisces on Friday, March 2. This is Mercury's sign of Debilitation, because the planet of Linear Thinking doesn't do well in the emotional sign of Faith. But Mercury will be closely conjunct Exalted Venus for the next three weeks, which is very good for Communication in Romance, Creativity, Imagination, Compassion, etc.

Mercury Enters Aquarius, New Moon in Aquarius, Mars Square Neptune

Mercury changes signs, entering Sidereal Aquarius on Wednesday, Feb 14. The planet of Communication likes being in the sign of Social Awareness. Mercury is the planet of The Media, now in the sign of The Humanitarian =more Reports on the Suffering of the Disadvantaged, etc. Aquarius likes to learn and retain knowledge, Mercury is the planet of Study & Learning.
The New Moon will be on Thursday, Feb 15, @ 3 deg Aquarius. Mercury will be in close conjunction, so this lunar month will feature the signifcations of Mercury, planet of Rational Thinking, Reasons & Explanations, Study & Learning, etc. This New Moon initiates the Hindu Lunar Month of Falguna, named for the nakshatra the Full Moon falls in, Purva Phalguni, which will be on March 1.
Mars is Square to Neptune this week. The exact aspect is Saturday Feb 17, when both planets are at 19 deg of their respective signs: Mars in Scorpio; Neptune in Aquarius. Mars is strong in its own sign; the square aspect is inimical. Therefore Neptune the planet of Dreams & Idealism, but also Illusions and Confusion, will suffer. This is an unpleasant combination prone to be demoralizing. The Deception of Neptune + Aggression of Mars leads to Nasty Events. ( More details in recent Video Blog)
