There is plenty on the move during the month of February with no less than 4 planets changing signs and one celestial body poised, as if waiting to take flight, in the final degree of Aries, wrapping up 8 long years of radical personal transformation.
Change is afoot my dears, so it's best to wrap your heads around this early on in the month so you can completely embrace the opportunities presented over the coming weeks. Either way you look at it, you can’t hold back the tide so suit up, grab your board and ride that wave!
Venus is in the hot seat this week so expect her themes of self worth, loveability, finances and all things gorgeous to be on everyones lips. I know Valentine's Day is next week but for once Venus is early to the party. Reconsidering long held views on security and if this yearning gets in the way of personal growth is written all over the 1st of February. The old ways of loving, whether ourselves or others, fall away in favour of freedom and independence on the 2nd of the month. Remember this can still be done within the context of a relationship, bringing light and trust. This transit, being in the final degree of Aries can make us rather myopic in terms of our plans. Try to look outward and forward. There is another very powerful transit at play on the same day intensifying our desires and bringing forth the need to control, so steady as she goes m'darlings.
On the 3rd of February, even though ideas are in free flow bringing a surge of optimism and expansive thinking, emotions are running just as high. Teacher Chiron brings to the surface old wounds, especially around femininity, values and the need to be accepted, in order to be healed and released. Other folk will be touchy as all get out as well so give them space if needed. And don’t be a mean girl/guy if you can help it. Our lady of Lurve moves into ambitious and practical Capricorn today until March the 1st giving us a discerning eye and energy to hustle for long term goals.
The Aquarius New Moon on February the 4th has a wealth of potential if we can just get out of our own way and not overthink the possibilities. With gorgeous aspects all pointing towards lucky Jupiter, life takes on greater meaning, it's reach stretching farther. You little ripper. On top of that the Moon sits bang between grounded Saturn and soulful Neptune, both in rulership, aka kings of their freakin castles. This aspect is part of the signature of 2019 so whatever new ventures are borne from the abundant creativity now carry us throughout the course of the year. Booyah!
Mercury and Mars take centerstage so expect the niceties - and not so much - of the last few days to evaporate. It’s time for planning and for action although we may be set slightly adrift mid week.
The 8th of February is busyyyy! Our confidence spikes and doors open. Or is the other way around? Conversations prove productive although we may need to think our way around an obstacle connected to our heart felt desires. Men can be of aid or assistance as can anything linked with education or training. Brilliant. On the 9th that aforementioned obstacle reappears. It could just be that someone wants to see you stay put instead of moving forward. A case of sour grapes. It may also be you standing in your own path. Think outside the box. Live a little. Be innovative.
Chatty Mercury moves into decidedly unchatty Pisces on the 10th of the month until April the 17th. Why the long stay you say? Next month’s upcoming Mercury retrograde. You’re welcome.
Our sign of communication gets submerged for a while. Our powers of observation gets sharpened as does our intuition. Retreat of all kind is marked, whether that’s a yoga class, meditation, reading a moving novel, becoming avoidant or wanting to rub out our edges. Be careful with the last two for wherever you go, there you are.
Speaking of avoiding, think twice before you leap into action on the 13th of the month. Events move at warp speed and so can our mouths. Thumbs down to recklessness and impetuosity and a big thumbs up to brilliant, but highly doable, dreams being birthed. Unburdening yourself from someone else’s burden is also a win. Just be sure you’re not being irresponsible. Single’s could meet someone who breaks the mould completely. Oh my.
Valentine’s Day see’s sexy Mars move into super sensual Taurus until March the 31st. Now, the God of War is slightly out of kilter here as Taurus is ruled by the Goddess of Love but this is a perfect combo for immense focus and determination toward something - or someone! - you’re passionate about. Cue Marvin Gaye.
Full Moon week Luna chicas or chicos. But before that we have the Sun, Chiron and Venus to contend with along with a sprinkle of Mercury. Sparkly!
The 15th of February tangles with the North Node ( again! ) making us wonder if we are heading in the right direction with our lives. This can be a classic crisis of confidence or of course it can go right the other way and become rigidity and an unwillingness to listen to reason. Soooo….don’t be a jerk and don’t let anyone be a jerk with you.
The 17th of the month is gorgeous and squishy and soft. Beautiful for creativity, rest and cake. If cake is your thing. It’s definitely mine.
There's this kind of mash ball of inspiration, beauty, dedication, long lasting connections and the need to rise above the mundane on the 18th, 19th and the 20th of the month. It’s a real push/pull energy due to some very different planets making their presence felt. Yes, there are reality checks, especially with love or money. Yes, there is grounding on offer and a wonderful chance to build something of lasting value in our private and public spheres. But there is also the temptation to shun the opportunities given and swim away from commitment quicker than you can say
" hasta la vista." Baby. Selflessness and noble causes are the higher frequencies of this transit. The lower? Fudging the truth and promising what you cannot deliver. You could find yourself slapped silly by the mighty hand of justice if you do, so don’t even go there.
Chiron, the asteroid representing wounds and insecurities, where we feel exposed, but ultimately where our greatest healing comes from and also where we can teach others, shifts into the sign of Aries until 2027. This is a big deal astrologically and one where we can see the collective conscience play out. In Aries we are encouraged to speak up and out, for ourselves and for others. Old wounds regarding our individuality, our ability to be assertive and swallowing our rage can be brought to light in order to heal for once and for all. Responding to challenging situations with anger or feeling the need to completely annihilate your opponent ,or the opposite of totally withdrawing can now be dealt with and resolved. Healthy boundaries and self esteem are the result. Courage my friends. Courage.
The glorious Sun moves into dreamy Pisces on the 19th of February until March the 20th. It immediately illuminates the Full Moon in Virgo. This Moon also speaks of courage, due to its link with fixed star Regulus. Regulus bestows success upon projects as well as luck and pure swagger. Keep the ego in check lest the success be short lived or you end up looking like a goose and you’re onto a winner. This Moon forms a sexy and amazing connection to Mars and Uranus giving daring and a sense of adventure. So much energy here! The ruler of the Moon, Mercury, is sharing space with Neptune, God of all things charitable and intuitive. Rose coloured glasses? A tad. Or a lot. But Virgo is also a very practical sign and bolstered by serious Saturn and loving Venus, keeping your feet on the ground even if your head is in the clouds.
Once again va va Venus and her witty consort Mercury have the floor for the week. This is a super sociable duo although Pluto will bring depth and intensity to the occasion. There is no middle ground when Pluto makes an appearance and a white hot line in the sand is drawn where boundaries were blurred over the last few days. Are you in or are you out?
Dreams are grand on the 22nd of February and you may want to bite off more than you can chew then chew like hell re anything to do with conversations, the internet, learning, education, travel and philosophy. The world truly feels like our oyster today. Watch for burnout or info overload. Oh yeah... and gossip.
Passions are most definitely stirred on the 23rd of the month as is the power of love. Or is that the love of power? It may be hard to tell today. Unexpected support from people who hold sway can bolster self esteem and add weight to our dreams. Sensuality, empowerment ( how many times can I mention power??) and super important meetings are key themes now.
For the last time this month, on the 26th, the North Node whispers your name upon the wind, calling you toward your destiny with outstretched hands. Is it the siren call? Or a vision that can actually be achieved? With careful planning and enough forethought, who knows what can be accomplished? On the 28th of February you are encouraged to take that initial step forward into the great unknown. Deep breaths…now go forth and conquer. See you next month. xoxo
