#149 February 13-19: The Sun and the New Moon in Pisces


Scott and Ingrid dig into a bunch of your questions, covering topics such as the North Node, planets in Virgo, Jupiter and Chiron in Aries, plus where Ingrid works, and if they’re hiring woman over 40.

The theme of this Valentine’s Day is Truth, with the Moon transiting through the sign of honesty, Sagittarius.

The Sun begins transit in the most compassionate sign, Pisces, followed by the New Moon in Pisces to close out the week. Set your intentions to follow your intuition, delve into your unconscious, and show yourself compassion, so you can dream of what you want in the coming astrological new year, once the planets transit into Aries.

Check out the podcast through the link below...


The themes this week are…

1. Compassion

2. Community

3. Courage

We enter the final phase of the astrological year this week, as the Sun begins its transit through Pisces, the final Sign of the Zodiac, and the Moon joins the Sun to bring us the New Moon in Pisces. Compassionately reflect upon the last eleven months, and reimagine the dream for what is ahead.

Before the Sun transits into Pisces it Conjuncts with Saturn in Aquarius. Mercury also aspects the North Node in Taurus, and Jupiter in Aries, this week. These aspects invite you to take a broader view that involves the collective, community, or group context.

Mars in Gemini and Chiron in Aries continue to aspect closely, encouraging you to face your insecurities, and courageously ask the questions you’ve been fearful to ask.

There is some powerful shifting, and opening occurring at the beginning of the week during Valentine’s Day. Honesty, and authenticity are the themes. Be sure to check out my chat with Dallisa Hocking, as we got in a deep discussion regarding the planetary transits for this special day.

In the meantime, if you are curious how these, or any other transits are affecting you directly, I encourage you to reach out to me for a reading.

Wishing you all the best through the week, as you ride the planetary waves!

MONDAY, February 13

The Moon in Scorpio Sextile Pluto in Capricorn

The 29th degree is one of the most powerful degrees, if not the most powerful degree of each Sign, because it is the final degree.

Think of the 29th degree as if you have shaken a champagne bottle, and are about to pop the cork. The pressure of the carbonation ready to push out the cork, is the essence of the 29th degree.

There is an incredible transformative shift occurring here, and there is no going back to the way things were before.

The Moon is the planet of emotions.

Pluto is the planet of transformation.

Scorpio is the sign of karmic bonds, intimate relationships, and is ruled by Pluto

Capricorn is the sign of achievement, and responsibility.

To translate, what this means is there is a powerful transformation occurring here with regards to karmic bonds, and intimate relationships.

What secrets would you like to share?

How can you be more intimate, and vulnerable?

What would you like to transform within your most intimate relationships?

Are you holding your partners accountable, and are you taking responsibility for your role within the bond?

How would you like you and your partners transform together?

When: 12pm – 6pm PST

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Aries, Leo, Libra and Aquarius.


Mars in Gemini Sextile Chiron in Aries

In case you missed it, check out last week’s post #148 where we discussed this alignment for the last five days of the week.

Mars is the planet of action.

Chiron is the wound, and the ancient wisdom that is unlocked through healing that wound.

Gemini is the sign of consciousness, and communication.

Aries is the sign of courage, authenticity, and is ruled by Mars.

Assisting in facilitating the transformation occurring through the Moon’s aspect to Pluto, are Mars and Chiron, which have been pushing you to this point since the beginning of the month.

You must face your fears.

Speak up.

Speak out.

Ask questions.

Courageously listen.

When: February 2 – 16

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces.

TUESDAY, February 14

The Moon in Sagittarius Trine Jupiter in Aries

Assisting in speaking up, and speaking out is the Moon in Sagittarius aligning with Jupiter in Aries.

Jupiter is the planet of luck, expansion, and the planetary ruler of Sagittarius, the sign of honesty.

Whatever secrets you may have been hiding yesterday, could be bursting into the fray today.

This could be one of those days where you find yourself thinking, I can’t believe I just said what I said, which is why it may be better to share on Monday.

Sagittarius brings a bluntness, that can make it difficult to repair, though Scorpio stings, so either way there may be hurt feelings. However, whatever is coming to the surface is something that needs to be expressed.

The good news is this is a Fire connection between Aries, and Sagittarius, which has the potential to burn through the pain, and light your awareness, so you can see things in plain truth.

When: 5am – 11am PST

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces


Mars in Gemini Sextile Chiron in Aries

Hopefully, by now you’ve been able to express everything you’ve been wanting to share, and have learned what you needed to from those who surround you.

Your mind is clear.

Your thoughts are concise.

Your direction has purpose.

If not, continue to forge through the confusion by asking what needs to be asked in order to give you the concise, clarity, or purpose that you need to charge ahead courageously through life.

When: February 2 – 16

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces.

WEDNESDAY, February 15

Mercury in Aquarius Square the North Node in Taurus

Mercury is the planet of communication.

The North Node is the Soul’s Purpose, or karmic pathway of the Soul.

Aquarius is the sign of community.

Taurus is the sign of values.

Aquarius is an Air Sign, air is extroverted because air is something that can touch you, but it is not something that you can touch.

As Mercury transits through Aquarius, tap into your inventiveness. Broaden your mind by sharing your ideas within your community, or the group construct. Through sharing these ideas, and receiving feedback, you can progress your idea.

The North Node in Taurus piece is there to anchor you back into your self-worth, or values.

Are you values at odd with those within the group, or community?

Are you able to reconcile the values of the group with your own personal values?

When you share your innovate ideas, is your self-worth challenged, or do you feel supported, even if those within the group do not necessarily see the value of your innovative idea?

When: February 14 – 16

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.


Venus Conjunct Neptune in Pisces

Venus is the planet of relationships, and exalted in Pisces.

Neptune is the planet of dreams, and the planetary ruler of Pisces.

Pisces is the sign of compassion, and intuition.

You have a special opportunity here to deepen your relationships by showing your partner how empathetic you can be to what they are feeling.

If you feel as though those who are in a relationship with you are missing you, or not perceiving who you are in some way, show yourself the compassion you wish to receive from your partners.

Take a long, deep look at any fears, regrets, shame, or anything you may be blaming yourself for in your relationships. Show yourself compassion as a partner, so you can integrate any negative thought patterns, or memories with understanding, forgiveness, and love for yourself.

Though your Soul will reincarnate after this lifetime. This is the only lifetime you have to be you, the individual you are right now in this moment.

The energy you set in this lifetime will carry over to the next.

If you spend this lifetime enraged at yourself, you will carry that anger over into the next lifetime.

The more you can show yourself compassion for the fact that this lifetime is meant for learning, and the learning is meant for growth, the more you can support yourself in finding the peace you truly desire.

Understand that each, and every relationship you have in this life is meant as a reflection of yourself.

Each relationship provides a unique reflection.

By showing empathy for those you are in a relationship with, you are showing empathy for your own reflection.

By showing empathy for your own reflection, you are showing compassion to yourself.

Once you are showing yourself compassion, you can reimagine the dream from a nightmare to a fantasy you can carry with you from this life into the next. Have faith.

When: February 12 – 17

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Gemini, and Sagittarius.

THURSDAY, February 16

The Sun Conjunct Saturn in Aquarius

The Sun is the planet of light, life, and vitality.

Saturn is the planet of responsibility, and the planetary ruler of Aquarius.

Now is the time to level up.

Take a hard look at where you are in life.

What have you done to get to where you are?

What do you need to do to get to where you want to go?

Who are you bringing with you on your journey?

How are those you are on your journey with supporting you?

How are you supporting those who are with you on your journey?

Are you willing to commit to doing the work required to get you to where you want to go, and are those you share the path with willing to commit to doing the same amount of work?

You may feel restricted, or limited. If so, you are being called to take a long look at everyone involved, and how the contribution of each individual is progressing you towards your goals.

On the other hand, you may be experiencing a lift. If everyone is on the same page, you could be elevating to a new level of responsibility.

Whatever the case may be for you, respect the gifts you bring to the equation. Those who are with you should also respect your gifts, just as you respect each individual within the group for whatever unique attribute they are contributing toward the cause.

When: February 13 – 18

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Taurus, and Scorpio.

FRIDAY, February 17

Mercury in Aquarius Sextile Jupiter in Aries

As you continue to do the work necessary to open up and authentically express yourself throughout the week, today could be an ideal day to let it fly, or reap the rewards of honesty.

The more you suppress the truth, the more heavy the burden of the lie becomes.

The Fire and Air connection between Jupiter in Aries, which is Fire, and Mercury in Aquarius, which is Air, brings a boost to the conversation.

Whatever you have been holding back, or hiding from, now could be the time to bring it out into the open.

What would you like to say to the group?

What do you need to share?

Are your ideas progressive, or suppressive?

How are your ideas bringing forth a future that is progressive for the collective independence?

If you have ideas, share them now.

Have faith that even if they are not received exactly in the way you desire for them to be received, they are pushing you in the direction of where you ultimately would like to be.

When: February 15 – 19

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Taurus, Cancer, Scorpio, and Capricorn.

SATURDAY, February 18

The Sun in Pisces

The Sun transits into the final Sign, Pisces.

Pisces rules the Feet. The feet carry the weight of the entire body. When you spent too much time on your feet, your feet get tired, and you need to sit down.

Pisces carries the weight of the 11 previous Signs, which means during this period you may be feeling the weight of everyone around you, and all you have done in the past year.

Pisces is symbolized by the Fish. The fish are those very intuitive creatures that know whether to be swimming upstream, downstream, in shallow water, or deep water, salt water, or fresh water. The fish are feeling what’s in the water, and moving based on those feelings.

Pisces is Mutable Water.

Mutable is adaptable, changeable, go with the flow. The Mutable Sign are the Signs that occur at the end of the season. These are the Stimulator Signs. These are the Signs that are stimulating us to adapt, evolve, and keep up with the changing seasons. These are the Signs that are great at multi-tasking, but can feel a bit scattered with so much going on at once.

Water, is introverted, because water is an element where you are initiating the touch, more so than water is initiating the touch with you. Water can nourish you by drinking it, or it can drown you. It is all how you are working with the energy.

Pisces is ruled by Jupiter, the god of thunder, lord of justice, the planet of luck, and expansion. Pisces is also ruled by Neptune, the god of freshwater, and the sea, the planet of illusion, deception, compassion, intuition, and dreams.

When the Sun is in Pisces, we are all experiencing what it would be like to be born with the Sun in Pisces.

This means that during this period you may be feeling more sensitive to the feelings of others. Their pain, suffering, and the internal burdens that weight them down in their unconscious.

The unconscious is where you keep all of your psychological baggage we don’t want to deal with. These are the feelings of guilt, shame, regret, or blame.

When you feel the pain, and suffering of others, it may feel like spending the entire day on your feet. This feeling may create an urge to escape.

We all know the saying, “drink like a fish”, therefore drugs, and alcohol, are ruled by Pisces, and are common ways to escape.

Film, television, Instagram, Facebook, pornography, video games, watching sports, doom-scrolling, these are all various forms of escapism. Music is another form of escapism, as well.

Be mindful of what you are programming into your unconscious, and how you becoming hypnotized during this period.

If you find yourself being drawn to escape more than normal, take a moment to reflect.

Who have you been spending time with?

In what ways are those you have been spending time with reflecting you?

Is there something about them that upsets you?

If so, perhaps whatever it is about them that agitates you, and creates that urge to escape is something you are hiding within yourself that you need to face.

How can you show yourself compassion?

How can you be more empathetic to those around you?

Now is the time to reimagine the dream. Reimagine the dream that is more appropriate for you are at the present point of your incarnation.

Reflect upon the last eleven months.

Show yourself compassion.

Reimagine the dream for what you want moving forward.

Just as the clouds shift in the sky, so too can your perspective shift. Allow it is shift in way that softens and soothes.

Though storms may be necessary during this period, they are here to clear the air, so you can see where you want to be from a reimagined perspective.

Take a leap of faith towards where you want to go.

When: February 18 – March 20

The Sun transits Pisces every year during this time. Think back to these dates for clues on what could be in store for you this time around.

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Gemini, and Sagittarius.

SUNDAY, February 19

The New Moon in Pisces

The New Moon is the in-hale.

The Full Moon is the exhale.

The New Moon is planting the seeds of the coming harvest.

The Full Moon is showing, and sharing the harvest.

Think of yourself as a farmer. In order to be a good farmer, you must understand three things…

1. The Seed

2. The Soil

3. The Climate

The Seed is the Sign where the New Moon is occurring.

The Soil is the House where the New Moon is occurring.

The Climate are the planets in your astrological code that the New Moon is aligning with.

Here we will discuss the Seed.

If you’d like to learn more about the Soil, and Climate, meaning where this New Moon is occurring in your astrological code, and what that means, I encourage you to enroll in my Moon Cycle classes.

The Seed is Pisces.

The four cornerstones of Pisces are…





Set your intentions to trust your intuition.

Set your intentions to be compassionate.

Set your intentions to be empathetic.

Set your intentions to have faith.

If you set your intentions to trust your intuition, you are acknowledging that you are one with the universe, and the universe is one with you.

Through this acknowledgment you will find compassion for yourself, and empathy for others.

It is through this understanding that you recognize that all you do, for better, or worse, is meant to be.

Sometimes it may be difficult to understand why, or to see the bigger picture.

Regardless, your existence, and the choices you make in your life, have an energetic impact on all that is, has been, or ever will be.

From this perspective you can develop the faith necessary to dream, to imagine, to fantasize, and manifest what you want from life.

The possibilities are limitless.

The only limitations are the restrictions you place upon yourself in your mind, but even those limits can be pushed. Set your intentions to do so, during this New Moon.

When: 11:06pm PST

This period could be challenging for those born with key astrological points or planets in Gemini, and Sagittarius.

15 times since Pluto has been transiting Capricorn has it been Sextile at the exact same degree as Venus in Pisces.

Do any of these dates bring up anything for you?

If so, take a look at your astrological code to see what is at, or near to the degree listed next to the date.

If you have any planets, or key astrological points, meaning the North Node, the Midheaven, or Ascendant in Cardinal, Mutable, Earth, or Water Signs that could have signified a transformation to your values, self-worth, relationships, or partnership energy, so you could find deeper compassion for yourself, and empathy for those you are closest to.

Now is the final time to embrace this opportunity to transform your unconscious thoughts with forgiveness.

Any guilt, shame, regret, or blame you may be feeling for yourself as a partner, or with respect to your values, and self-worth, show yourself compassion, so you can integrate these negative thought patterns, and memories with understanding, forgiveness, and love.

Are you being empathic to your partner, and compassionate with yourself?

How can you reclaim faith in your relationships?

What would you like to transform about your relationships, so you can have greater faith in your partner, and in yourself as a partner?
