Starcodes for the week of February 25 – March 3, 2022
This is a pivotal strategic week as Mars, Venus, and Pluto all conjunct in Capricorn under a vulnerable Pisces Sun. The astrological mood is sensitive but determined and important organizational, strategic, and health realities may pivot or clarify by the end of the week. We see what is happening between Russia and the Ukraine. Difficult people are moving upon forward for their long-range plans. We can use the same fresh determination in our own lives and for the world efforts, let’s consider carefully where we want to take this. When in doubt organize. Organize the junk drawer or working system, organize the laundry or a peace movement. Just don’t organize beloveds or a country not your own. Venus and Mars run conjunct in Capricorn through the month of February and can help us love to create systems and make order out of chaos. This external organization can give us a physical model for our mind and heart to do the same.
Control is another Capricorn superpower that needs to be used judiciously. Though some respond to these Plutonian aspects by typing down control because afraid to lose a country, an object, or a person, with Venus and Mars in Capricorn we need to remember that the only thing we can really control is ourselves, not others. Keep that in mind towards the end of the week as that Venus – Mars – Pluto conjunction peaks. That Pluto conjunction could take us to a place of sweet emotional intensity because we love anyway in the face of life-and-death and tough questions. Or because we put some sweat equity into a long – held desire.
Some people and governments will respond to these Plutonian aspects by tightening down control because they’re afraid to lose a country, an object, or person. This could be a moment of powerful and strategic moves on the world stage.
This week is a great time to begin any disciplines or systems, practice any crops. Capricorn likes the goal, whether small, medium, or large. Like a mountain goat- this lineup encourages us to climb a mountain, set a reasonable goal in achieving, or we will tend to wander and get moody. We need to celebrate each step along the way rather than use that goal just to berate ourselves but not yet making it, as being hard on ourselves is another Capricorn habit.
The Capricorn mood, both a clear need for control over one’s own life and a desire to organize the world-can get intense as the Moon enters Capricorn on Friday and intensifies over the weekend as that Moon conjunct Venus, Mars, and Pluto on Sunday.
Early next week the aspects become more cooperative and communal and ask us what we can get done in the world at large as the Moon enters Aquarius and conjunct Mercury and Saturn. Then, on March 1 and 2nd, under a new Moon in Pisces, we become freshly aware of our vulnerabilities and drop into our feelings. The week finishes with intense aspects which can demand we face some personal or political ultimatum and the consequences which follow as the Moon heads into reactive Aries next Friday.
America is in the heart of its first Pluto return, Pluto has come back to where it was July 4, 1776, on the mythic birth of our country. Pluto will hit that point several times this year. We don’t have that much data on the Pluto return because the cycle so huge, but we can remember the last time Pluto reach this point at the end of Capricorn, oppressive levels of governance inspired a revolution and birth our democracy. May democracy experience a rebirth around the globe.

Friday, February 25: If we’ve been trying to make ourselves do something important but avoiding it for a while, now is a good day to push forward as the Moon joins the other planets and determine Capricorn. Watch for major strategic moves on the world’s chessboard, now through next weekend. We’ll feel so much better if we can just see some progress. Tonight, whether were debriefing, arguing, partying, or planning, will do so with determination. So let’s be careful what we decide to do.
Moon enters Capricorn 9:27 AM, Moon sextiles Sun 10:09 PM.
Saturday, February 26: So, what should we do with this weekend. Let form follow function; beautify, simplify, create, and build as the moon approaches Venus. Question any need to control the situation. Stand out of the way of busy people or help with their project. If at all possible, take a break from ordinary work and pursue a personal goal, however arbitrary a goal it might seem to others. This evening intensifies; if an argument begins, step back, but if it’s something more beautiful, proceed. Moon trine Uranus 4:40 AM, Moon sextile Jupiter 7:43 AM, Moon sextile Neptune 10:49 PM.
Sunday, February 27: Share dreams and check the headlines this morning to see what’s cooking in the psyche and what’s hatched overnight as the Capricorn Moon conjuncts Venus, Mars, and Pluto. Check for anything that needs to be done urgently, then investigate what’s going on in the family, community and around the globe as the Moon enters Aquarius.

Monday, February 28: Get organize this morning, then meet and engage conversations this afternoon as the farsighted Aquarius Moon conjunct Mercury and Saturn.

Tuesday, March 1: Slow down Catch up with feelings as the moon enters sensitive Pisces and the Sun semi-squares Venus. Once the feeling flow through we can move quickly from experience to solution. It may be hard to focus on the people nearby because the big picture calls our attention, but we need to honor relationships closer to home.

Wednesday, March 2: Tender feelings and tough decisions abound. The new Moon in Pisces at 10:34 AM MST encourages a fresh relational cycle but can swamp us with mixed emotions. We are very aware of where vulnerabilities exist. Our minds can track, our thoughts perseverate as Mercury conjunct Saturn in Aquarius and encourages mature reasonable decisions, but also obsession. Persist with consciousness and care.

Thursday, March 3: A day of vulnerability and action, mortality and intensity speak to us as Mars, Venus, and Pluto conjunct under the sensitive echoes of a new Moon in Pisces. A day of endings and new beginnings, decisions made today have consequence, but we can choose how we move forward. Or we can just get swamped by feelings. The Moon enters Aries late afternoon and nudges us to take those feelings into action.
