14th – mercury into Pisces conjunct Neptune
15th – Venus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn
18th – sun in Aquarius trine Saturn retrograde in Libra
19th – sun into Pisces conjunct Neptune
It’s a dreamy, romantic vibe for Valentine’s, as mind and communication planet Mercury moves into the imaginative and emotionally sensitive sign of Pisces on the 14th, immediately meeting Neptune, the ruling planet of Pisces.
Like the sign Pisces it rules, Neptune is all about imagination and emotional sensitivity. Logical and wordy Mercury joining forces with Neptune like this is brilliant for amping up red rose romance and for whispering sweet nothings.
It’s also great for telepathic-like connections, synchronicity and amazing coincidences that feel personal, reassuring and comforting. No one else might get why a white feather has such meaning to you but the universe’s messages always deliver and hit the spot regardless.
However, it’s all much like the calm before the storm though, as on the 15th, Venus in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn. Venus (relationships) squares (clashes with) Pluto (trust the process). It’s a challenging combo at the best of times, but Venus in Aries is a particularly bolshy Goddess whose motto is never surrender, so it can all get a bit rock and roll at times, with messy power struggles in relationships, and old irrational emotional issues that just don’t want to flush easily.
Happily, cool logic is lightening the emotional overload by the 18th, with structure and sanity combining in the form of Sun in Aquarius trine Saturn retrograde in Libra. This is all about support, whether from friends, family or the kindness of strangers, it’s all about co-creative partnerships, and resourceful relationships.
Next day on the 19th the Sun moves from Aquarius into Pisces for the next few weeks, and immediately meets Neptune, just as Mercury did at the beginning of the week. Sun in Pisces is all about creative imagination and visualisation, inspired artistic vision and uber-compassion, and Sun meeting Neptune is likely to amplify that vibe tenfold.
Sometimes Neptune clouds the Sun and fogs clarity, but this misty perspective just indicates missing the mark when it comes to self-belief… it’s self-doubt that makes things murky, so throw those curtains wide and welcome the Sun with confidence.
