Mercury is in Aquarius now, quickly leaving Pluto in Capricorn behind. It joins the Sun, Saturn, and Mars in air signs. Things should lighten up this week.
Things should also speed up as Mercury flies through air signs; but beyond that, the planet is supported by Jupiter in Mars-ruled Aries. By the end of the week, Mars in Gemini will hot it up even further. It's possible to learn new things quickly right now.
As for what we're rushing towards, I can think of a number of things. Saturn in Pisces is one of them, but also just March in general when we have all those planets changing signs. (See Mustang Sally.)
Keep in mind, all the planets are direct right now as well. It's called Ain't No Stopping Us Now. It's the song for the rest of February... so "don't you let nothing, nothing, stand in your way!"
