Here is the chart for the Pisces New Moon of March 1st. We note that this new moon occurs on February 28th in some time zones. In any case, this is effectively a late Friday night event more than a Saturday event.
The Sun / Moon conjunction here occurs close to the Chiron / Neptune Midpoint, emphasizing issues of healing and teaching. The darker side of this is that some will be swindled or cheated on this evening. If you are single and dating, please do know that everything may not be as it seems. With Juno nearby, it is an especially bad night to cheat on someone. If you are the cheatee, rather than the cheater, then this is the night to expose them for what they are. This is your chance: don’t back down.
If you are in a bad relationship, leave it NOW!
Here is the Solar Map for the U.S. We note that New England is particularly highly activated by Mars at the time of this new moon, indicating possible violence for some.
Here is the new moon map for the United Kingdom (UK) and Europe:
I find most interesting the Uranus rising line which comes near Glasgow. Here is the Horary Chart for that time and place:
Here is the map for Southeast Asia:
As always, many complexities exist in this map.
Here is the map for South America on the New Moon:
We note that a Mars line activates Columbia, South America.
And here is the map for Australia and New Zealand:

Things could go BOOM! this week.
Different events have been signaling the kinds of strained relations and flaring tempers that can be associated with the Grand Cross formation of 2014. February 17/18 will show us the first alignment of the group (foreshadowing the Alignment of April 20th).
The above chart is indicated as the “beginning” by Solar Fire, but the alignment has been “beginning” for some months (years?) now. Given that this is an outer planet chart and that it really governs (at least) the two 24 hour periods of Feb 17 and Feb 18, a chart of a “moment” may be questionable. Regardless, here is the above data cast in “beginner” chart format under Solar Fire:
A bit more interesting is a chart that emerges the following morning (during rush hour for CST / EST):
Retrograde Mercury, Sun, Neptune and Chiron are all in the 12th house in this chart; Saturn, North Node, Ceres, Vesta, and Mars are in the 8th house. Moon has perfected a square to Jupiter and opposition to Uranus (forming a T-Square). Hard to say, but we think this will be an “interesting” period, particularly for geography experiencing rush hour.
A grand trine follows on the 20th / 21st and Thor’s Hammers as well. We should see an interesting week.
This appears to primarily affect the time period of rush hour on Thursday. However, since it is primarily an outer planet alignment (Jupiter and Uranus with Saturn at the apex!), it really affects the days (and maybe weeks) preceding and following the alignment. Frankly, it looks like a bit of a rough week. (Adam Lanza’s birth chart had a Thor’s Hammer. So did the chart for the Fukishima earthquake and tsunami in 2011.) Some things might go boom.

Edit: The last time we had a Valentine’s Day anything like this one was 19 years ago; the next one will not happen for another 19 years. Really, this is a rather unique alignment of the Sun/Moon for this holiday, and the Hard Rectangle makes it even more “interesting.” And, I have to agree with what I have read elsewhere: avoid arguments and disputes with oddball people. After all, if you get in an argument with a crazy person, an observer might not know which one of you is the madman.
Valentine’s Day can be difficult for many of us. If you are not a picture perfect person in a relationship or expecting strong dating opportunities, the holiday can be downright cruel. The Leo / Aquarius Full Moon on Valentines Day this year is part of a “Hard Rectangle,” and we expect to see more squabbles than tranquil moments. (Perhaps “making up” will be good on this date, though.)
The astrology for Valentines Day is a bit “tough” this year.
Here is the chart with the Hard Rectangle identified:
The Jupiter / Pluto opposition is part of this pattern (along with the Leo Moon / Aquarius Sun). Built from semi-squares and sesquiquadrates, many of us will feel agitated. In some cases this could be a dangerous period for some. Here is the full moon chart (set at time of culmination):
Essentially Venus is conjunct Pluto. This CAN be GREAT for “love” and sex. The two are merged. However, a real risk of serious power struggles exists on this date. Only you can decide how to use the energy, but whether used destructively or constructively the energy will be associated with emotions running unusually high on this date.
By 6PM CST (5 PM EST / 8PM PST), the Moon turns void of course for the remainder of the evening. Friday night dates may have a bit of weirdness to them. Blind dates will have unexpected results (the other person is married already, the other person has a quirk that bothers or, (best case) you thought you would hate them but like them; the worst case is you like them but something interrupts it and you never see them again). Planned dates may have things go awry.
The best “dates” will be quiet time if you can achieve it despite the intense energy, or maybe some safe activity that is highly physical but quiet and away from the world. You will have to use you imagination to determine what that might be.
