Genevieve Hathaway has written the Moonshine horoscopes in this issue based on the Virgo Full Moon, which is on Monday, Feb. 25 at 3:26 pm EST, interpreting the event for each of the 12 signs.

Monday, we learned that Joseph Ratzinger, known as Pope Benedict XVI, would be the first pontiff to resign from office since 1415, nearly three centuries before Benjamin Franklin was born. This is something that’s never happened in the modern era, and its being unprecedented — and the astrology that goes with the event, along with an asteroid flyby and a meteorite strike — seems designed to get our attention.
We have increased the frequency of Genevieve Hathaway’s Moonshine Horoscope to twice a month — the Tuesday right before the New Moon and right before the Full Moon. Since the Aquarius New Moon is this weekend, we have a new Moonshine for you in this edition. These will not be identified by month but rather by the name of the lunation.
We are again in one of those moments when the world seems to be coming unhinged — as we’ve gone through this week’s news items, it’s really impressive how much pain and struggle there is going on. That said, there seemed to be some progress on immigration reform and gun control, which if they stick, is nothing less than a miracle. Pres. Obama’s nominee for defense secretary believes we need fewer nuclear bombs. Go figure.
