Early February begins with the last quarter moon phase when energy levels tend to dip. Libra on Friday gives opportunity for a mindset geared toward organizing a list of unfinished projects. Last quarter moon phase isn't so good for starting anything new. Instead, this phase favors attention to lingering details.
Groundhog Day is on the weekend determining the outlook for ending winter. Then a three day stint for Scorpio brings a mystery out of the recessed shadows of consciousness.
Some pleasant weather should show up for the incoming new moon but not before a stormy midweek during last phase. Beginning on the 10th, the new moon features Lincoln’s Birthday, with a zesty Aries influence for Valentine’s Day. A cold snap and Taurus earthy influence on the weekend suggest a cozy home and family focus.
The First Sunday of Lent begins on the 17th followed by Presidents Day aligns with the sociability of Gemini. A possible taste of fair weather may accompany the moon’s visit with Cancer happening toward the weekend.
Headed into a full moon, Washington’s Birthday serves as a marker for the weekend. Monday’s moon sign means following a healthy regimen that includes home and family, and the possibility of snow in the North.
