Wild Moon Wisdom Horoscopes
for the week of Monday, February 27 - Sunday, March 5
We’ve just emerged from the second eclipse in this current Eclipse Portal, with the solar eclipse and new moon in Pisces on Sunday morning. We are often altered in some way, either during the Eclipse Portal itself or in the six months that unfold after, revealing something that was dissolved or removed and something new beginning to grow. Eclipses always magnify or magnetize, they initiate and activate.
This weekend Venus, the planet of love, turns retrograde in Aries. While Venus is retrograde she turns inward, and we may have some inner work to do around self-love or our relationship or money wounds. It is also a time to reflect on what you desire in love, in your relationships with others, and also your core beliefs around material success and abundance.
Enjoy your week.
"Confusion and chaos are signs of the old structures of life breaking down so that something new can emerge. There is nothing inherently unspiritual in feeling confused. In fact, growth may not be possible without periods of chaos." ~ Mark Thurston.

Aries & Aries Rising
Venus has been in your sign since February 3, and on Saturday will turn retrograde until April 15. During this time, you may feel pulled toward reflection and review of your love life and how you relate in your relationships. Some of your closest connections may undergo change. This is also a good time to contemplate and revision your beliefs about money and material wealth and spiritual abundance.
Your ruling planet Mars is shifting from your sign to earthy Taurus next week and that will feel different. You may be feeling on edge and riled up, and rightly so, but butting heads in conflict has taken its toll and now it’s time to ground down a little bit. The feistiness will still be there- you’ll just need to be more discerning about which battles you really need to take on.
Taurus & Taurus Rising
The planet of love, Venus, will turn retrograde in Aries on Saturday in your house of endings. Your sign is ruled by Venus, which is what makes you such a lover of art, beauty and pleasure in its many forms. This is the hazy, reclusive part of your chart where you sit with your sorrows and lick your wounds, release and get rest. You can contemplate what you want in your relationships going forward, the kind of lover you want, friends that are your tribe, and how even challenging relationships can give momentum to your evolution. Venus is also all about finances and self-worth, so think about these things too.
Next week Mars, the action planet, will leave Aries and move to your sign, giving you a boost and blast of energy and power. You can start making plans now for how you’ll channel your ambition and drive.
Gemini & Gemini Rising
The love planet Venus will turn retrograde in Aries this Saturday in your house of alliances. While Venus is retrograde, your romantic and relatable side may go underground temporarily in favor of rethinking what it is you want in your relationships. Venus also rules money and self-worth, so there will be some work to do around those issues as well.
Mars, the feisty planet, is in Aries currently and in this same part of your chart. After last week’s Mars/Pluto square, you could be involved in some interpersonal conflicts but those could begin to be smoothed out when Mars moves to Taurus next week, when you’ll be able to process things and get some rest and solitude.
Cancer & Cancer Rising
Venus turns retrograde in Aries on Saturday. This means that your work relationships or your relationship to income could shift or evolve after some introspection.

Mars, the planet of action, is still in Aries and also in your house of career, but will move to Taurus next week. That will bring an abundance of this energy to your house of friendship, enlivening your social calendar, strengthening bonds, empowering intellectual pursuits, and activating your goals.
Leo & Leo Rising
On Saturday, Venus turns retrograde in fellow fire sign Aries, which is your house of mental exploration and adventure. While retrograde, Venus turns her power inward. You could decide to relocate for love or education, or you could decide to take a long trip as an adventure. You may feel more inclined to think about and discuss the philosophies of love, the ideas behind these feelings and emotions, and since this is the risk-taking and blunt-talking part of your chart, you could take a chance or make a love declaration after this period.
Mars, the action planet, is still in Aries and this same area of your chart this week. Next week that energy will shift when Mars moves to Taurus; your career and public standing will get a big boost now. Be resourceful and use this burst of energy to fuel your goals and ambition, to create bright ideas that will garner admiration, or to increase your material success.
Virgo & Virgo Rising
